The anti-tank guided missile system “Shershen” is a multipurpose highly-mobile assault and defensive firing mean intended for Land Forces subdivisions.
“Shershen” is designed to enhance anti-tank defense of military units, and is also used during attacks for neutralization of diverse firing points of an enemy.
The ability to use different types of missiles without any system modification, in addition to a wide specter of targets makes it possible to consider this system not only as an ATGM, but as a mobile defense-assault fire system for infantry support up to battalion level.
