Spanish military industry has produced many indigenous solutions to local requirements throughout the decades, proving itself a capable player on the world stage. Instalaza SA, founded during World War 2 in 1943, specializes in the field of infantry-level weaponry and developed the MAT-120 mortar cluster munition system, Alhambra hand grenade, and the C90 series of anti-tank Rocket-Propelled Grenade (RPG) weapons. The latter is a 90mm caliber, single-shot anti-armor solution that entered service with the Spanish Army, Marines, Air Force and Guardia Civil. It has also found a home in the inventories of Colombia, Ecuador, Estonia, India, Italy (special forces), Indonesia, and Malaysia.

The C90 system includes a collapsible fiberglass/plastic launch tube with integrated optics fit and shoulder strap. Overall weight is 4.8 kilograms and its length reaches 940mm. The projectile is a 90mm munition featuring a tandem High-Explosive (HE) warhead with an effective range out to 300 meters. The 2x optical sight can help the operator engage a moving target in either day or night. The CR-90 family is similar in most respects to the American M72 LAW, both being fired from the shoulder and disposable after single use.

The C90 launcher is equipped to fire several projectile types against both armor and fortified structures - its 90mm caliber gives it considerable usefulness against a variety of target types. The "C" projectile is useful against armor up to 200 meters away and against 1,000mm of concrete. The "C-AM" round is an anti-tank/anti-personnel solution with penetration against concrete up to 600mm thick. The "CR" round is an anti-tank munition with ranges up to 300mm and penetration of concrete up to 1,000mm thick. The CR-RB follows suit but adds greater penetration against both armor up to 480mm and concrete up to 1,200mm. The "CR-AM" is a dual-purpose round with penetration against 220mm of steel and 600mm of concrete.
