Ukraine’s State Kyiv Design Bureau, Luch, has test-fired its new batch of anti-tank precision-guided missile.
The bureau released a video showing the test-firing of a ‘Stugna’ anti-tank missile at a military range Friday.
The R-111 STUGNA missile uses semi active laser beam riding guidance, and with its tandem shaped-charge warhead it is capable of penetrating 550mm+ RHA behind explosive reactive armor. The missile can engage targets out to 5,000 meters, with flying time to the maximum range not exceeding 14.3 seconds. The STUGNA missile has a 1,196mm-long body, and weighs no more than 24.2 kilos.
The missile is designed to launch from the D10T 100mm gun on the T-55 tank, or the MT-12 antitank gun.
