Final tests of a new modification of the Skif anti-tank guided missile system have taken place in Chernihiv region.
“The tests included launches of Skif anti-tank guided missiles. All targets were successfully hit,” the press service of Kyiv’s Luch State Design Bureau wrote on Facebook.
The Skif portable anti-tank guided missile system is designed to defeat enemy troops, mobile and stationary armored targets with combined, spaced or monolithic armor, including dynamic defense systems, as well as small-sized targets such as long-term fire points, lightly armored objects and helicopters.
Due to a separate control panel in a suitcase, missiles could be commanded from closed positions and shelters: rather than fire the system manually, an operator can deploy the Skif and then command it from as far as 50 meters away. (UNIAN/Business World Magazine)
