Ukraine has test-fired an improved version of its Corsar portable missile system at one of the military grounds of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, according to Kyiv’s Luch State Design Bureau.
Corsar light portable missile system is intended to destroy stationary and moving modern armoured targets and other objects with combined, carried or monolithic armour, including ERA (explosive reactive armour), as well as pinpoint targets such as weapon emplacements, a tank in a trench, light-armoured objects and helicopters.
The Corsar missile system successfully hit an armored tank-type target at a distance of more than 2,000 meters in a strong side wind. The hit damaged the upper armored sheet of the target, which ensures the complete destruction of an enemy combat vehicle.
