  • System Components

  • Turret mount :
    • Turret mount with four (4) guide rails with missiles, sighting-and-guidance unit, thermal imaging sight and operator’s seat.

    Turret mount is designed to install and fix the sight and two pairs of guide rails with missiles, for their azimuth and elevation laying as well as for installation of units and mechanisms that control the launcher, prepare and make the launch. In case of necessity to use the thermal imager it is fixed on side of the sight.

    • guide rails with missiles (4 pcs.);
    • sighting-and-guidance unit;
    • thermal imaging sight;
    • operator’s seat.
  • Ammo load.
    • Ammo load

    In ammo load there are 5 guided missiles in hermetic transport-launching containers, 4 missiles are on guide rails.

  • Maintenance facilities.
    • Test equipment

    Test equipment for launcher check

    Test equipment for thermal imaging sight check

  • Electronic units
  • Training aids.
    • Training aids

    ATGW operators training in detection, tracking and engagement of simulated targets without ammunition expenditure, improvement and keeping of achieved skills thanks to further trainings.

  • Advantages and Operating Features

  • Every-time combat readiness – execution of up to four launches without system reloading.
  • Easy target detection, tracking and missile aiming onto the target due to electro-mechanical drives.
  • Possibility of two missiles salvo firing against extremely dangerous target.

Kvartet launcher presents further modernization of Kornet E system in terms of mobility increase and convenience of operation.

Thanks to installation on light carriers the system is capable of fast movements, fire strikes and position shifts.

Can be effectively used on a stationary position, i.e. as a coastguard.
