Tell us about the tactical and technical characteristics of the missile.
The AAM 9M311 is a 90 mm semi-automatic surface-to-air missile containing 4.63kg of explosive equivalent of TNT. After detonation the missile behaves as an HE projectile sending debris over the target. For doing so it has a proximity fuse of 5 m with an arming distance of 300 m. With a flight speed of 910 m/s it is capable of destroying any air target.
Comparison with analogues
Usage in battles
The AAM 9M311 will have little trouble destroying enemy aircraft or helicopters due to its speed and firing range (8 km).
Although it can be fired on tanks, the missile will not be very affective against them but in most cases the explosion will destroy the gun barrel or the tracks. The only way to destroy an MBT is to land the missile on the top of the tank so the explosion can pierce the thinner roof armour. The missile is very effective against lightly armoured targets such as other AAA vehicles or IFV's.
