South Korean Marines will soon be armed with the LOGIR

After years of development, South Korea’s Marine Corps will soon be replacing its 90 mm coastal defense guns with the Low-Cost Guided Imaging Rocket (LOGIR)


The LOGIR started as a Office of Naval Research (ONR) project to fit a imaging infrared seeker to the Hydra 70 2.75 inch rocket with participation from South Korea.

LIG Nex1 eventually develop it further with extensive testing.

The LOGIR will allow the Marines to target fast-moving vessels out to a range of 5-8 km compared to 1-2 km for the existing coastal guns.
