The design of the advanced AT guided missile system "Skif" has undergone a number of changes in accordance with the requirements of the potential customer. All modifications aimed at adapting the launcher for use in soft soil and sand. The manufacturer has installed a powerful thermal imager. The missile itself has not changed, as originally was designed for use in all climatic and weather conditions.

During the tests of the advanced AT guided missile system "Skif", developers and representatives of the customer’s country were present. Representatives of the armed forces of Ukraine were also present during the tests of the new SKDB "Luch"development.

Commander of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, Colonel General Serhiy Popko, highly praised the modernization of the modern Ukrainian AT guided missile system, produced by SKDB "Luch". "Equipping a regular AT guided missile launcher with a powerful thermal imagery guarantees hitting the enemy’s armored equipment in conditions of poor visibility at night, which once again confirms that our country has an extremely high scientific potential that allows to produce armament and military equipment samples at par with the leading countries," added Serhiy Popko.

The unique development of SKDB "Luch" specialists has a number of technical advantages that guarantee engagement of movable and immovable modern armored targets with combined, spaced or monolithic armor, including active armor. In addition, the Ukrainian missile complex is also capable of destroying small-size targets such as weapon emplacements, tanks hidden in trenches, light-armored objects and helicopters.
