The Improved TOW (Tube launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided) missile weapon system is a soldier-portable and vehicle-mounted long range anti-armor weapons system. While it can be man-packed over short distances, the
Canadian Defense Force usually mounts the TOW on a vehicle. In 4 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group, the TOW missile systems were fitted to M113A2 Armored Personnel Carriers. In this configuration it was known as a M150 TOW.
