Rostec is a state corporation founded in 2007 in Moscow. Its main purpose is to develop advanced, future-oriented defense technologies. Rostec supplies goods such as aircraft, electronics and more to over 70 countries worldwide.
An innovative unguided aerial missile has been developed in Russia, informed the Splav design bureau, which is part of the company Rostec, the giant of the Russian military industry.
This new-generation weapon, with a caliber of 80 mm, is equipped with a powerful engine. According to Rostec, this missile could lay the groundwork for the creation of missiles that combine the properties of concrete-breaking ammunition with explosive fragmentation.
Based in its characteristics, this invention is unsurpassed among all Russian and foreign analogues. The new engine enables the development of guided and unguided aerial munitions.
The use of the missile will thus allow attacking targets located in covered fortifications and in forested areas.
The designers of this missile received a professional award for their invention. In fact, they have managed to solve several scientific, technical and practical problems, Rostec said in a press release.
