SHTURM Antitank Guided Missile

Companies & Organizations:

The Shturm anti-tank guided missile is designed to destroy small-size mobile and stationary armoured ground targets and low-speed air targets. The missile features the canard configuration. It mounts one pair of folding control surfaces and four folding bow-shaped wings. The missile is transported and stored in a sealed launch tube.

 

A single-channel semi-automatic radio command guidance system ensures alignment- technique guidance. In flight the missile spins around its longitudinal axis. The electronic equipment is jamming-proof and allows for simultaneous attack by a group of 10 helicopters against close-in targets. The narrow antenna pattern and relatively short cycle of radiation hamper enemy electronic countermeasures. The missile warhead can be of a shapedcharge fragmentation or fuel-air explosive type. The Shturm ATGM arms the Mi-24V, Mi-25 and Mi-35 helicopters.
