    Russia is to deliver the Kornet-EM long-range anti-tank guided missile systems to international customers.

    NIZHNY TAGIL (Sputnik) — Russia has concluded several agreements to sell the Kornet-EM long-range anti-tank guided missile systems to international customers, the developer of the missile said at the RAE-2015 military exhibition on Wednesday.

    "The agreements on delivery of Kornet-EM [missile] complex to several countries have been already concluded," an official from the Instrument Design Bureau (KBP) told RIA Novosti, without specifying the customers.

    According to the official, Kornet missiles with shaped-charge warheads have a range of 8 kilometers (some 5 miles), and missiles with high-explosive warheads have a range of 10 kilometers (some 6.2 miles).

    The system can fire two missiles simultaneously at a single target to ensure high kill probability. The missile with a high-explosive warhead is capable of destroying air targets, including drones and helicopters.

    The Kornet-EM was unveiled at the MAKS airshow outside Moscow in August 2011.

    The KBP is the leading Russian developer of precision weapons, modern aircraft guns and grenade launchers.

    The 10th Russia Arms Expo RAE-2015 international arms show runs on September 9-12 in the Urals city of Nizhny Tagil.
