The RBR-120 mm M90 (nicknamed "Стршљен" or "Strsljen", meaning "Hornet") 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.


The M90 Strsljen was designed and manufactured in the former Yugoslavia. It has continued production in Serbia and the Republic of Macedonia.
