Tripod-mounted MILAN launcher - 115mm
MILAN launcher on Marder IFV - 115mm

MILAN (Missile d'Infranterie Legar ANtichar, "Infantry anti-tank missile" and also a play on the French word for "kite" because the weapon is wire-guided) is a second-generation SACLOS anti-tank missile launcher system developed in the 1960s by the Euromissile group, now known as MBDA.

MILAN is one of the most widely-sold anti-tank weapons, second only to the BGM-71 TOW series, with some 10,000 launchers and 350,000 missiles produced. In 2009, with MILAN sales flagging due to the availability of the far more advanced fourth-generation fire-and-forget FGM-148 Javelin and Spike systems, MBDA began work on what they call a "fifth-generation" system, the Missile Moyenne Portée (MMP). France began the retirement of all MILAN systems alongside the similarly antiquated ERYX and HOT missiles in 2017: all are planned to be replaced by the MMP with first deployments in 2018 and full adoption by 2025.
