Fire and… Forget

Kornet-EM multi-purpose long-range missile complex will be among the highlights on the KBP Instrument Design Bureau stand at Russia Arms EXPO 2013 (RAE 2013), the IX International Exhibition of Arms, Military Equipment, and Ammunition. Fitted with a jam-resistant automatic beam-riding guidance system, this complex is intended against ground and air targets.


Kornet-EM can engage last-generation ERA-protected tanks, light armor, emplacements, and naval and air targets (e.g. UAVs and helicopters) at ranges of up to  10 km. In terms of cost/efficiency ratio, Kornet-EM far exceeds other air defense complexes of similar range. Its automatic guidance mode realizes the fire-and-forget principle without using costly target-seeking devices in the missile, which greatly reduces stress loads on the operator and makes the weapons less demanding to operator qualification, reducing personnel training time.
One of the advantages of Kornet-EM is the possibility of mounting the complex on a self-propelled platform or building a carried version with tripod mounting. Kornet-EM can be mounted on a wide range of light vehicles (0.8 to 1.5 tons). In double-launcher version, the complex has eight missiles ready to be fired, with a total onboard load of 16 missiles. Volley firing at two targets at once greatly increases the effective rate of fire and firepower of the unit.
The KBP Instrument Design Bureau is one of the leading design and construction organizations in Russia's defense industry. Since 2008, KBP has been part of Rostec State Corporation, being one of the key organizations within the High-Precision Weapons holding. Over its history, KBP has developed and mass-produced over 150 types of weapons and military equipment. Today, KBP is a powerful research and production center, creating state-of-the-art high-accuracy weapons. Current KBP developments feature over 6,000 patented inventions.
