The '''Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher''', sometimes referred as '''STINGER''', is a handheld [[Weapons in GTA San Andreas|weapon]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]. Unlike the [[Rocket Launcher]], the Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher automatically selects the nearest available target. It is based on the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SA-18_Grouse 9K38 Igla] man-portable SAM. It also resembles an FIM-92 Stinger Man-Portable Air-Defense System (MANPADS for short). When pointed at a vehicle the marker is green. After waiting for 3-5 seconds it turns red and the missile is locked on. It then tracks toward the target, making it useful for taking out air vehicles, such as [[Police Maverick]]s .
