NOVOROSSIISK, September 3. /TASS/. Airborne troops will test the advanced Kornet antitank guided missile (ATGM) system during the Slavic Brotherhood exercises near the south Russian city of Novorossiisk prior to its service entry with the Russian Airborne Force, a defense ministry spokesperson said on Thursday.
"An antitank platoon will fire the Kornet ATGM system that has not entered service yet," the spokesperson said adding that the Kornet features an extended range and an improved guidance system over the Fagot system currently used by airborne troops.
The Slavic Brotherhood international exercise of Russian, Belarusian and Serbian airborne troops is held from September 2 to 5.
