An unexploded AT-14 "Spriggan" laser-guided anti-tank missile, fired by Qaddafi loyalists near Benghazi.
We were surprised to find this advanced anti-tank missile, known in Russian lingo as the "Kornet," in Qaddafi's arsenal. It is the same model that was reportedly fired by militants in Gaza on April 7, hitting a school bus in southern Israel. During the 2006 war in Lebanon, it was one of the most effective weapons deployed by Hezbollah fighters against Israeli tanks and armor. In Libya, we only saw evidence that the Qaddafi loyalist forces had the Spriggan AT missile in their arsenal, one of many indications of the superiority of their weapons when compared to those available to the rebel forces.
