    antitank missile system 9k115-2 portable antitank missile system 9K115-2 'Metis-M" is designed to defeat modern and future armored vehicles equipped with reactive armor, fortifications, enemy personnel, at any time, in adverse weather conditions.

    created on the basis LAW "Mixed." The concept of modernization is to maximize continuity with the terrestrial and allowing the use of the complex as a standard missile "Metis" 9M115, new and modernized - 9M131. Given the growth prospects of security tanks designers strongly increased dimension warhead by clicking on the caliber of 93mm to 130mm caliber. Significant improvement in performance characteristics was due to increased weight and dimensions ATGM.

    Complex "Metis-M" was developed in the Instrument Design Bureau (Tula) and adopted in 1992.

    Designed to replace the previously created complexes of the second generation "Mixed", "Fagot", "Competition".

    the west range was designated AT-13 "Saxhorn".

    apply during armed conflict in Syria in 2012.


    antitank missile system 9k115-2 The complex consists of:

    9P151 launcher with an eye - a homing device drives and guided missile launch mechanism (see photo);

    thermal sight 1PN86BVI "mulatto-115";

    9M131 missiles placed in transport-launch containers.

    test equipment and 9V12M 9V81M;

    Wings 9M131 missiles are made of thin sheets of steel and disclosed after the start under its own elastic forces. As well as in a rocket 9M115 "Metis", adopted technical solutions, in particular placement of tracer at the ending of one of the three wing panels allowed to abandon the use of gyro, onboard batteries and electronic components. During the flight the rocket tracer gyrates, ground equipment receives information about the angular position of ATGM and corrects commands issued by wireline controls on missiles.

    powerful new tandem shaped-charge warhead ATGM complex capable of hitting all current and future enemy tanks, including mounted and fitted with explosive reactive armor, lightly armored vehicles, fortifications. Moreover, a high level of pressure that occurs when penetration in both axial and radial directions, leading to crushing of concrete in the cumulative passage of the jet, breaking the barrier and backsheet, as sledstvvie, high zapregradnomu action. This ensures defeat manpower, located behind the objects of concrete monoliths or prefabricated reinforced concrete with a wall thickness of up to 3 meters.

    In order to expand the range of combat use complex "Metis-M" missiles 9M131F equipped with a thermobaric warhead weighing 4.95kg with explosive action at the level of large-caliber artillery shells, especially effective when shooting in engineering and fortifications. With the explosion of a warhead produced more extended in time and space than conventional explosives, the shock wave. This wave propagates in all directions, numb for obstacles, trenches, through the loopholes, etc., affecting manpower, even protected shelter. In the area of detonation transformations of a thermobaric mixture is complete burn oxygen and develops a temperature above 800 ° C.

    Placed on a tripod launcher can be equipped with a thermal imager 1PN86-VI "mulatto-115" weighing 5.5kg, providing detection of targets at ranges up to 3.2km and their identification at a distance of 1.6km, which provided missile launch at night for maximum range. Dimensions imager 387 * 203 * 90mm. Field of view 2.4 ° * 4.6 °. Duration of battery life - 2 hours. Temperature range from -40 ° C to +50 ° C. In order to improve efficiency in the sight used balloon cooling system that provides access to the regime for 8-10s.

    rocket is launched with the help of starting the engine, then run solid propellant sustainer. antitank missile system 9k115-2


    complex consists of two people, one of which carries the weight of 25.1kg pack N1 with a launcher and a container with a missile (see photo) and the other pack N2 with two containers with a rocket weighing 28 kg (instead of three for LAW "Mixed"). When replacing the TPC with a rocket on thermal mass of the pack is reduced to 18.5kg. Implementing in the firing position is carried out at 10-20c, the battle reaches the rate of 3 rounds per minute.

    Along with the main purpose - use as wearable complex, "Metis-M" can be used for weapons and BMD and BMP.

    Shooting can be carried out with trained and untrained positions from the supine position, standing out of the trench, as well as the shoulder. Possibility of firing and of the buildings (the latter requires about 2 meters of space per launcher).
