The IGLA portable air defense missile system was developed by the Soviet KBM. The company, known as Kolomna Machine-Building Design Bureau in English, was one of the state defense companies existing in the former Soviet Union. One of their designs was the 9K38: an infrared, homing, and man-portable SAM (surface-to-air) missile launcher. Intended to strike targets both head-on and in pursuing roles, the Igla, as it is identified by NATO is a formidable weapon, even with its age. The Igla was introduced in 1983.
