Csis is wrong. So are all the other lazy sources that call everything a ballistic missile without caring what words mean.

  1. it doesn’t follow a ballistic path.
  2. the boost-sustain rocket burns for the entire flight.
  3. the sustain thrust is, I suspect, very small - just enough to count.

ATACMS is basically designed to not quite be restricted by treaty. It’s the Washington treaty battleship of battlefield missiles.

Thanks for the update. Neat thing about the Norinco M14s; apparently they have case hardened receivers. Several gun magazines in the US reported a little resistance then soft receivers during tests. An engineer wrote into one magazine noted the Chinese case-hardened a lot of tools you normally wouldn't, and it sounded like that's what they did.

Video of UA recon buggies. These are not armed with a ATGM on the roof, but carry one in their 'trunk' for the passengers to use if needed.
