Ukraine adopts new anti-tank missile system

The Ukrainian military has adopted a new indigenous anti-tank missile system also capable of destroying low-altitude, slow-moving aerial targets, the Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.

Stugna-P has been developed by Kiev-based Luch design bureau to compete with foreign models of the same class.

The laser-guided system has a range of 4,000 meters and can penetrate armor up to 800 millimeters thickness.

The system is capable of destroying armored vehicles, small fortifications and even helicopters hovering at low altitudes, the ministry said.

The Ukrainian military has ordered at least ten Stugna-P systems so far, according to other sources.
