U.S. Special Forces will soon get the M4E1 Selectable Lightweight
Attack Munition (SLAM), an improved version of the currently
used hand emplaced munition which was fielded in 1994. The munition
uses an explosively formed penetrator (EFP) warhead capable
of defeating vehicles and other targets from 5 inches to 25
feet. The new and improved version combines magnetic and passive
infra-red sensing for overpass and side-pass attacks. It has
seven pre-selected fusing presets, for up to 24 hour delay.
Aiming has also improved, with the addition of omega sight,
snap-on laser sight. The SLAM uses mounting straps and fasteners
for improved transportability and rapid mounting on natural
or man-made objects.
