“We can say that the Kornet-EM has become a universal anti-tank missile system: it has been adapted for any tracked or wheeled chassis with the corresponding lifting capacity. Therefore, it can fully meet the requirements for anti-tank weapons,” Mikhailov explained.

It is specified that in the basic modification, Kornet-EM is placed on two telescopic masts with four missiles on each.

“Almost any modern car can be a carrier of ‘Kornet’ – the inclusion of this weapon in the units radically enhances its capabilities to defeat all types of targets with high accuracy,” Mikhailov said.

As reminded, the Kornet-EM anti-tank missile system is designed to defeat tanks and other armoured targets, including those equipped with modern means of dynamic protection. The rocket is guided by a laser beam. The maximum firing range of the Kornet-EM complex has been increased to 8 km, whereas in previous versions it is 5.5 km.
