US testing Spike mini-missile

The miniaturization race continues

The U.S. military says it is moving ahead with tests of a 5-pound guided missile the size of a loaf of French bread.
Military researchers are also preparing to test the 2-foot-long Spike missile, which is about one-fourth the size of the world’s previous smallest missile, The Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

A fully self-guided weapon smaller than a LAW shot… not bad.
