This new development was unveiled by Maj. General Mikhail Matveyevsky, commander of the Russian Missile and Artillery Troops.
"The planning of a next-generation advanced self-propelled anti-tank missile system operating on the ‘fire-and-forget’ principle has already been planned," Matveyevsky told journalists.
According to Maj. Gen. Matveyevsky, new anti-tank missile systems’ development focuses on improving the missiles’ efficiency, yield and resistance to enemy countermeasures, and further automation of the anti-tank units’ control.
At the present time, the Russian military employs Khrizantema-S and Shturm-SM self-propelled anti-tank missile systems. These weapons are capable of engaging and destroying virtually all types of tanks and armored vehicles, and even helicopters; and their radar and laser guidance systems allow them to operate both during day and night, under any weather conditions.
