The RBR-120 mm M90 (nicknamed "Стршен" or "Strsljen", meaning "sting") is a light-weight, single-use, unguided anti-tank rocket launcher. The launcher is produced by Eurokompozit of Prilep, Macedonia, while the anti-tank rocket is produced by Sloboda Čačak, Serbia. It is intended for use against tanks and other armored vehicles in addition to fortifications and infantry.

On impact a piezoelectric impact fuse in the rocket triggers the shaped charge warhead, which can penetrate an equivalent of over 800 millimeters of RHA.
