Ukraine tests new anti-tank missile system

The tests of the new Skif anti-tank guided missile system, which took place both in Ukraine and abroad, in particular, in the ultra-high temperatures in the desert, were successful, according to the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, Oleksandr Turchynov.

The ATGM rockets "accurately, without a miss, hit targets at a distance of up to 5.5 kilometers," the website of the National Security and Defense Council quotes Turchynov as saying.

Turchynov said that the ATGM Skif combat unit displayed a unique result, burning armor up to 1 meter thick.

"That is, there is no armored equipment in the world that could not be destroyed by the Ukrainian Skif,” he concluded.

It should be noted that the joint Ukrainian-Belarus Skif anti-tank missile system was first introduced in 2005. In 2011, Ukraine modified this ATGM, equipping it with the guidance device developed by Ukraine, and not Belarus. This modification was called the Stugna-P.
