KORNET-E Antitank Missile System

Companies & Organizations:

Helicopters can use guided missiles being the versatile versions of the Kornet-E antitank system. Missiles can destroy reactive-armored targets, fortifications and firing positions. There are missile derivatives that have both a tandem shaped-charge warhead and a thermobaric high-explosive and incendiary warhead.


The missile control system is semiautomatic against laser beam and countermeasuresimmune. The 9М133-1 missile with a tandem shapedcharge warhead destroys all modern and future tanks as well as fortifications and field installations.



The 9М133F-1 missile with a thermobaric warhead features a destructive effect comparable to that of a 155 mm high-explosive fragmentation projectile and can destroy strong fortifications, soft-skin materiel and other small targets.


Missiles require no maintenance work in service and in storage for 10 years and need no inspections before suspension aboard helicopter.
