The Russian KPB Instrument Design Bureau first introduced the Kornet anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) in October 1994. This system utilizes a laser beam riding missile, where the operator simply has to keep sight of the target to ensure a hit. 
 
The Kornet ATGM was designed to defeat current and future explosive reactive armor (ERA) equipped tanks. After the missile passes the ERA defenses of a tank, the 9M133 missile can penetrate 1000-1200mm of rolled homogenous armor (RHA).  The export version of the Kornet ATGM system is designated: Kornet-E
