A new version of Skif anti-tank guided missile system (the export version of Ukrainian-made Stuhna-P) was successfully tested at a military shooting range.

"Design of the advanced Skif ATGM has undergone a number of changes in line with the requirements of the potential customer. All modifications were made to adapt the launcher for use on soft soils and sand. The rocket itself remained unchanged since it was initially designed to be used under any climatic and weather patterns without exceptions," the press service of Luch Design Bureau which developed the weapon wrote on social media, Censor.NET reports.

The representatives of the developer companies, the requesting country, and the Ukrainian Armed Forces attended the tests.

Commander of the Ground Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Colonel-General Serhii Popko, commended the advanced missile system. "A powerful thermal scope that a standard ATGM is equipped with allows targeting enemy armored vehicles under poor visibility conditions and at night. This weapon once again confirms that our country has an extremely high scientific capability that allows creating weapons and military hardware that are at least on par with the ones produced by world’s major economies," Popko said.
