Cross-branch tests of the Strela-10ML anti-aircraft missile system (called Sosna anti-aircraft missile system when made for export) were successfully completed in May 2019.
The Sosna missile system was designed to protect troops from aircraft attacks and aerial reconnaissance.
This system is capable of operating at any time of the day or night and in conditions of reduced visibility. Targets can be identified both manually and in autonomous mode.
The system is armed with 12 Sosna-R anti-aircraft guided missiles that can hit targets at a distance of up to 6 miles and at an altitude of 3 miles.
The system was first presented at the 2018 edition of the annual Army International Military-Technical Forum.
