9M133 Kornet Missiles
Atlas International Group deliver and supply ammunition and 9M133 Kornet Missiles for ATGML. This missile has a range of 5.5km and is a tandem HEAT warhead type. The Kornet is ranked as one of the deadliest laser guided missiles on the ammunition market, and, due to its impressive range, has a fearsome reputation. The missile weighs in the range of 8.2kg, and at an impressive 152mm, the diameter is one of the largest ATGMLs ever built.
The Kornet is deployed by a two-man team and is used as an ATGML for ground forces. A two-man set up involves one person carrying the fire control system as well as the tripod, with the other carries the launch tube loaded with the missile. This can be done with a single user, but it’s far simpler a set-up with two people behind it. One of the pluses for the 9M133 Kornet is that it’s designed to conceal the user, providing cover behind the fire control system and tripod.
The Kornet has been reported in the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, and then again in 2006, with Israel’s invasion of Southern Lebanon. More recently, this missile has been reported in 2014 in Ukraine. It has a combat record that is impressive, and the Kornet is a missile that has a place in the modern warfare of today. The component of this missile is a fin-stabilised, solid-fuel rocket propellant development. This missile for ATGML sights at 6 rounds per minute, making it one of the most effective ATGMLs around.
