Description
The SA-16 Gimlet or 9K310 IGLA-1 is a man-portable air defense missile system with a solid propellant guided missile. It is a simplified version of IGLA (SA-18 Grouse) portable anti-aircraft missile system. SA-16 GIMLET (Igla-1 9K310) man-portable surface-to-air missile system, a further development from the SA-7 & SA-14 series.The SA-16 Gimlet and its 9M313 missile were accepted into service in the Russian army on March 1981. The SA-16 Gimlet MANPADS carries the nomenclature Igla-1 9K310 in Russia for the whole system, while the missile itself is designated 9M313. The SA-16 Gimlet is more cheaper than the SA-18 Grouse and yet more effective than the older Russian MANPADS. The Igla-1 can also be fired from helicopters using the Strelets launcher.
 
Variants
- Igla-1E: Export version of Igla-1 features an IFF system configured to the client requirements
- Igla-1M: no IFF system

Design
The SA-16 features a new seeker and a modified launcher nose cover. The SA-16 Gimlet is fitted with a new IFF (Identification-Friend-or-Foe) system to prevent firing on friendly aircraft, an automatic lead and super elevation to simplify shooting and reduce minimum firing range, a slightly larger rocket, reduced drag and better guidance system extend the maximum range and improve performance against fast and maneuverable targets, an improved lethality on target achieved by a combination of delayed impact fuzing, terminal maneuver to hit the fuselage rather than jet nozzle, and an additional charge to set off the remaining rocket fuel (if any) on impact, an improved resistance to infrared countermeasures (both decoy flares and ALQ-144 series jamming emitters), a slightly improved seeker sensitivity. The SA-16 Gimlet missile system consists of several parts. First, there is the 9M313 missile which is housed in the 9P322 fiber glass launch canister. The 9P519 gripstock is attached to the launch tube and is fed by a 9B328 power supply unit
Missile
The 9M313 missile of the SA-16 employs an IR guidance system using proportional convergence logic, and an improved two-color seeker, presumably IR and UV). The seeker is sensitive enough to home in on airframe radiation, and the two-color sensitivity is designed to minimize vulnerability to flares. The passive IR seeker is in the nose and a spike is fitted to reduce drag. The control section consists of four small fins that steer the missile. This is followed by the HE-Frag warhead with impact fuse. The entire aft section is made up by the solid fuel sustainer motor. During the launch, the missile is propelled from the launch tube by a boost motor.
Operations
The Sa-16 Gimlet can engage approaching targets out to 4.5 km and receding targets out to 5.2 km. The maximum effective altitude against jet fighters is about 2.5 km and helicopters and subsonic aircraft about 3.5 km. The quality of the seeker on the Igla-1 is better than on the previous Strela-2 and 3, although the seeker of Igla is much better.
Combat use
The SA-16 Gimlet is designed for destroying low flying aircraft and helicopters. The missile can be launched to follow or meet enemy aircraft.
