    Russian military is about to bolster its arsenal with a new potent addition – a next generation self-propelled anti-tank guided missile system.

    This new development was unveiled by Maj. General Mikhail Matveyevsky, commander of the Russian Missile and Artillery Troops.

    "The planning of a next-generation advanced self-propelled anti-tank missile system operating on the ‘fire-and-forget’ principle has already been planned," Matveyevsky told journalists.

    An anti-tank missile system that employs 'fire-and-forget' missile guidance is a very efficient weapon as its operator only has to spot a target and shoot; there’s no need to maintain a target lock after the missile has been fired, so the launcher can focus its attention on other enemies or withdraw into cover.

    According to Maj. Gen. Matveyevsky, new anti-tank missile systems’ development focuses on improving the missiles’ efficiency, yield and resistance to enemy countermeasures, and further automation of the anti-tank units’ control.

    At the present time, the Russian military employs Khrizantema-S and Shturm-SM self-propelled anti-tank missile systems. These weapons are capable of engaging and destroying virtually all types of tanks and armored vehicles, and even helicopters; and their radar and laser guidance systems allow them to operate both during day and night, under any weather conditions.
