Russia’s newly developed APR-3M air-launched anti-submarine warfare missile has completed trials and will soon enter into serial production.

"The APR-3M has passed through all its trials, and we have mastered the serial manufacturing of the weapon. The deliveries of the missile to the Russian Navy are commencing. In the near future, we will also start promoting this missile for exports,” Igor Krylov, CEO of GNPP Region, a subsidiary of the Tactical Missiles Corporation (KTRV), told TASS Monday.

According to Krylov, the APR-3M is integrated into the armament of a Ka-27M modernized anti-submarine warfare helicopter.

"Considering that this missile is a hi-tech digital weapon, it can also be used from (other) modern aircraft," Krylov said.

The APR-3M anti-submarine warfare missile is a follow-up of the APR-1, APR-2 and APR-3 missiles that were in service with the Soviet and Russian Navies.
