9K338 Igla-S man-portable air defence system

ПЗРК "Игла-С" КБМ Коломна


Round-the-clock close air protection of armed forces subunits, military and civilian assets from attacks by tactical aircraft (fighters, assault aircraft, fighter-bombers), fire-support combat helicopters as well as neutralization of cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles in head-on and tail-chase engagements against clutter background and in countermeasure environment when they are visually observed.
The Igla-S MANPADS is a new-generation system with a new performance capability for this weapon type – high kill probability of such small-size targets as cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.



 ПЗРК "Игла-С" КБМ КоломнаMajor features of Igla-S MANPADS:

  • considerably improved effectiveness of air target destruction and warhead lethality resulting from:
    • increased weight of explosive (1.5-fold as compared with Igla missile);
    • introduction of a proximity fuze in addition to the existing impact fuze and optimization of their co-operation for target engagement;
    • sustainer's detonable propellant;
    • improved missile accuracy to hit vulnerable aircraft locations
  • target range increase to 6.0km vs. 5.2km of Igla missile due to improved missile aerodynamics and a proportional actuator;
  • night-fire capability with a night sight;
  • easy installation on various carriers.

The 9S846 Strelets set of control equipment and launch modules provides for:

  • development of mobile short-range air defence systems;
  • fitting of SAMs to air-defence artillery mounts;
  • development of heli-borne air-to-air guided weapon systems;
  • development of light ship-borne SAM systems.
  • The Igla-S system is a new member of the Igla MANPADS family exceeding its predecessors in effectiveness, reliability, survivability while retaining their best features:

    • single-operator shoulder firing;
    • fire-and-forget mode of operation;
    • high counter-countermeasure (CCM) capability in heavy (background) clutter and countermeasure environment;
    • simple aiming and launch procedures;
    • high operational reliability;
    • low-signature combat employment;
    • ability to remain operational under extreme operational conditions.
