Kornet-EM Anti-Tank Guided Missile System

The Kornet-EM is a multi-purpose anti tank guided missile system designed and manufactured by KBP Instrument Design Bureau. The Kornet-EM variant uses technical vision with an automatic target tracker to make it a “fire and forget” missile, giving it a 5-times increase in accuracy of target tracking at any range. The Kornet-EM missile system is an upgraded version of the Kornet anti tank missile system. The new system is designed to penetrate explosive reactive armour from 1,100mm to 1,300mm and offers high immunity against jamming. The fire and forget capability gives a vehicle with more than one launcher the ability to salvo launch against two different targets at once, increasing its rate of fire and decreasing the number of vehicles needed for a mission, as well as salvo fire of two missiles against one target to defeat vehicles equipped with an active protection system. The missile system is designed to destroy advanced and modern tanks fitted with explosive reactive armour, light-armoured vehicles and fortifications. It can also engage surface-level marine and low-speed aerial targets at ranges between 150 m and 10,000 m.
