Kalashnikov supplies Strela-10M3 SAM systems with brand-new guided missiles

 Kalashnikov Group has successfully completed production and delivery of 9M333 anti-aircraft guided missiles (SAMs) to the Russian Ministry of Defense, reported the company.

 The 9M333 is used as part of the 9A34M3 and 9A35M3 anti-aircraft missile systems Strela-10M3.

The missile is designed to engage low-altitude planes, helicopters, drones and cruise missiles at any season and in situations involving airborne, parachuted and modulated organized optical jammers. The 9M333 seeker has three modes of operation: photo contrast, infrared and interference.

The missile is capable of hitting targets at distances up to 5,000 m, with target velocities of up to 679 m/s and flight altitudes from 10 to 3,500 m.

This ammunition allows producing fire according to the “fire and forget” principle, i.e. immediately change the location of the anti-aircraft missile system after launch.

The product is manufactured at Kalashnikov Concern. Its first public demonstration was held in 2020 as part of the International Military-Technical Forum ARMY-2020. In December 2020, the 9M333 SAM has successfully passed qualification and flight tests and fully confirmed its compliance with the customer’s requirements. The periodic flight tests conducted in October 2021 produced good results.

Strela-10M highly mobile air defense system is designed for protection of army units in any forms of combat operations and on the march against air threats at low and ultra-low altitude.
