The combat vehicle is designed to fulfill the tasks assigned to a complex of engaging a wide range of aerodynamic targets - manned aviation, UAV, WTO and anti-radar missiles in all conditions of combat use, at any time of the day and in any jamming situations. The autonomy of combat use is determined by the combination of means of detection, tracking and destruction of targets in one combat unit. The modular principle underlying the creation of the combat vehicle allows it to be placed on various transport bases and in a stationary version. The unique characteristics of the complex provide the ability to shoot in motion; simultaneous firing of four targets, including three in radar and one in optical modes; all-weather and all-day use; the presence of noise-protected multi-band radar-optical control system. Combined missile-cannon weapons guarantee a defeat with missile weapons: in range - up to 20 kilometers, in height - up to 15 kilometers and cannon weapons - up to three kilometers.
Anti-tank missile system "Cornet-E"
It strikes modern and promising Tanks, lightly armored vehicles, fortifications, low-speed aerial, surface and other targets at any time of the day, in difficult weather conditions and in conditions of radio-electronic and optical interference organized by the enemy. Aiming missiles at the target from the launcher is carried out using high-precision backlash-free two-speed mechanical drives that provide target tracking with an accuracy of no worse than 0,1 thousandth division. For transportation of the Kornet-E complex and operational convenience by combat crew, the launcher is folded into a compact stowed position, the thermal imaging sight is placed in a pack device and delivered to the combat zone by any means of transport. The complex allows target detection, aiming, firing, tracking and hitting a target with one person. The relatively small size, great power of the warheads (a missile with a cumulative warhead strikes modern tanks, a missile with a high-explosive warhead is comparable in power to a large-caliber artillery shell), as well as its significant range, make it possible to equip airborne units, assault groups and troops . The placement of the complex in combat vehicles (infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, BMDs, jeeps) increases the mobility and diversity of its use. The ability to place elements of the Kornet-E complex in a rotating wheelhouse allows you to create combat vehicles with electromechanical guidance drives, automate the loading, guidance and launch of missiles. At the same time, the combat vehicles of the complex provide a high rate of fire, constant readiness for launching a rocket, and volley fire with two missiles at one target.

The automated launcher with four guided missiles placed on it ready for launch is equipped with a telet-thermal sight with high-definition television cameras and a third-generation thermal imager, an integrated laser range finder and a missile guidance channel, and automatic target tracking with pointing drives. The defeat of targets in automatic mode reduces the psychophysical burden on operators, the requirements for their qualifications, and also reduces the time for their preparation. The complex provides several advantages. Multiple simultaneous shooting at two targets significantly increases the rate of fire and fire performance of the complex. Shooting two missiles in one beam to hit especially dangerous targets, including those equipped with active defense systems. Two-fold (up to 10 km) in comparison with the Kornet-E anti-tank systems, an increase in the firing range, while the pointing accuracy is increased fivefold. Expanding the capabilities of ATGWs due to the destruction of small air targets (helicopters, RPVs, attacking attack aircraft). The Kornet-EM complex can be placed on a wide range of small-capacity carriers (1 units AAP - 0,8 – 1,0 t, 2 units AAP - 1,2 – 1,5 t), provides fire for all Kornet-E missiles.
