Description: The 9M96 is a family of advanced Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAMs) designed to engage a wide range of aerodynamic and ballistic targets in the most severe clutter and jamming environments with unprecedented effectiveness. The new missile is able to intercept targets at a maximum speed of Mach 15 (4,800-5000 m/s) and at a maximum altitude of 35,000 meters. The 9M96 missile family was developed for integration on the Russian Triumf next generation air defense system. The Russian Air Force seeks to field a 9M96 derivative designed to perform long range air-to-air engagements. The Fakel Design Bureau (MKV Fakel), a part of Almaz-Antey Concern, is responsible for the 9M96 missile family.

The 9M96 missile features an active radar homing head backed by target updates provided by the launch unit's radar system as well as an Inertial Navigation System (INS) for midcourse guidance. Its cold launch consists of the missile being ejected 30 meters above its canister and thereafter the rocket motor ignites. A Thrust Vectoring Control (TVC) system based on gas flow provides an impressive maneuverability over other current anti-aircraft missiles. So far, the two existing missile variants have a maximum range varying from 40 kilometers to 120 kilometers.

The 9M96M2 is an upgraded variant of the 9M96M missile with an extended range of 150 kilometers to engage a wide variety of airborne targets at longer ranges. The 9M96M2 missile is intended for the Vityaz ground-based air defense system and the Poliment-Redut ship-based air defense system onboard Project 22350 class frigates and Project 20380 class corvettes. The 9M96M2 missile may enter service with the Russian Armed Forces in the 2018-2020 timeframe. The 9M96M2 variant may have a further extended range of roughly 200 kilometers.
