System Kornet-EM is intended to reach air and ground targets at a distance from 150 m to 10 km. It can be mounted on armored vehicle like the Russian Tigr type, but can also be installed on other vehicles weighing up to 1,5 ton.

Kornet-EM uses technical vision with automatic target tracker makes it possible to exclude an operator from missile guidance process and in fact implements the “fire-and-forget” principle. This gives a 5-times increase in accuracy of target tracking during real combat use and high hit probability at any system operating range which is twice higher than that of the Kornet-E ATGM system.

The combat vehicle with two launchers ensures simultaneous salvo firing against two targets, this significantly increasing the system’s firing rate and number of targets handled and at the same time allowing to twice reduce number of combat vehicles required to complete a combat mission. Similar to Kornet-E system the Kornet-EM system retains salvo firing capability with two missiles in one beam against one target to get over active protection systems.
