“Kornet-E is one of the most effective and highly sought anti-tank systems in the global arms market, which has prompted our colleagues from Jordan to establish joint production on their territory,” said Viktor Kladov, Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy Department of Rostec State Corporation.

Kornet-E is designed to destroy tanks, armored combat vehicles with reactive armor and various fortifications, with a maximum firing range of 5.5 km. Since Kornet-E can fire both missiles with a cumulative tandem-charge warheads designed primarily to destroy heavily armored objects, but also a missiles with a high-explosive thermobaric warhead, it is a highly effective defensive assault weapon for eliminating wide range of battlefield targets.
