Chief of Russia’s Missile Forces and Artillery, Lt. Gen. Mikhail Matveyevsky, said his country is working on a new anti-tank missile that will replace all anti-tank missiles in inventory .

"We already plan the development of a new-generation self-propelled antitank missile system of a new generation, that follows the principle of ‘shot-forgot-hit’," Matveyevsky said.

Russia currently has two  types of anti-tank missiles the Khrizantema-S and Shturm-SM in service. They are intended to destroy moving and stationary air and ground targets, including main battle tanks, small surface ships, low-flying air targets and fortifications.
