High Precision Weapons Company, a subsidiary of state-owned Rostec has adapted the Kornet-EM anti-tank missile system for any chassis.

"We can say that the Kornet-EM has become a universal anti-tank missile system: it has been adapted for any tracked or wheeled chassis with the corresponding lifting capacity. Therefore, it can fully meet the requirements for anti-tank weapons," Company Deputy CEO Sergey Mikhailov told TASS at the EDEX 2021 international defense show in Egypt on Wednesday.

In its baseline modification, the Kornet-EM is mounted on two telescopic masts that carry four missiles each, he said.

"The Kornet-EM has a flexible structure and can be mounted on one or two masts. Actually any present-day vehicle can carry the Kornet: the weapon’s inclusion in a military unit boosts the unit’s capabilities for striking all types of targets with high accuracy," Mikhailov said.

Also, the Kornet-EM anti-tank missile system supplied in its automated launcher configuration is distinguished by high precision, he added.

The Kornet-EM is designated to strike tanks and other armored targets, including vehicles outfitted with reactive armor. The missile is directed by a laser beam. The system’s firing range has been extended to 8 km whereas its previous versions have an engagement range of 5.5 km.
