I've seen these fired for real, an expensive but awesome piece of kit. The IR seeker is so sensitive you can actually use these things for anti-personnel use. A fascinating example of such an incident is here from the great Michael Yon.

They should form an immediate and satisfying solution if ever Khalid Kelly or any of his ilk attempt to cause trouble for the IDF boys by planting IEDs.

Thanks for the link. It was a brilliant account by Yon.
