The new Ukrainian SKIF anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) which is an export variant of the Ukrainian “Stugna-P” has successfully completed testing.
The new SKIF ATGM has been adapted for use in soft soil and sand and also features a powerful thermal imager, allowing to targets to be destroyed with the first shot, despite the difficult weather conditions, day and night.
The missile itself however, has not been changed.
“Equipping a regular AT guided missile launcher with a powerful thermal imagery guarantees hitting the enemy’s armoured 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,” said Commander of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, Colonel General Serhiy Popko.
The SKIF ATGM guarantees engagement of movable and immovable modern armoured targets with combined, spaced or monolithic armour, including active armour and is also capable of affecting small-scale targets such as weapon emplacements, tanks in the trench, light-armoured objects and helicopters.
