*The only Khrizantema music video on youtube!!*

The Khrizantema is an anti-tank guided missile designed to deal with current tank threat such as Abrams tanks and Leopard-2's.

The Khrizantema began development in the mid-1980's and was first seen in 1996. It entered service with the Russian Armed Forces in 2004.
The 9M123 missile is supersonic, flying at an average speed of Mach 1.2. The Khrizantema is unique among anti-tank missiles because it can be either laser guided or radio guided. The radar guidance system uses radio command guidance and a millimeter-wave radar to track the target and the missile while generating guidance commands, this allows fully automatic target engagement.

When using the laser targeting system, targets need to be continually painted, a sensor in the rear section enables the missile to ride the laser beam to the target, this is a SACLOS guidance system. The guidance system allows two missiles to be fired at two separate targets at once with one missile guided by laser and the other by radar. This makes the 9P157-2 tank destroyer the most advanced and deadly in the world.
The Khrizantema tank killers can fully engage 3 targets quikly and up to 15 with its full loadout.

Each missile carries a tandem HEAT which penetrates 1100-1250mm of armour [behind] explosive reactive armour (ERA). The system also carries thermobaric munitions which are to engage light skinned vehicles, fortifications, and manpower. The 9P157-2 vehicle is a turretless BMP-3 and provides the same armour as the BMP-3 Infantry Fighting Vehicle. The dual guidance system ensures protection against electronic countermeasures and operation in all weather conditions, day or night.

The system is able to engage targets out to over 6,000m.
