The High Precision Weapons Company, which is a part of Rostec State Corporation, has adapted the Kornet-EM anti-tank missile system to any type of chassis, as reported by its Deputy General Director, Sergey Mikhailov, during the EDEX 2021 international arms exhibition in Egypt.
“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.
