Description: The Hermes is a modular, supersonic, bi-caliber, multi-purpose guided missile designed by Tula-based KBP for use by airborne, ground-based and sea-based platforms. The Hermes missile system consists of an expendable booster stage and the primary missile system, also known as sustainer, carrying a powerful high explosive (HE) fragmentation warhead. The spectrum of targets that can be engaged at day/night using the Hermes weapon system includes: armored vehicles, facilities, fortifications and low-speed air targets such as helicopters. The Hermes is sealed inside tube/canister which acts as the missile launcher.

The long-range, ground-based Hermes missile comprises a 210mm booster stage and a 130mm sustainer with a 28 kg HE fragmentation warhead. The missile has a range of approximately 100 km and uses radio-command guidance to reach the target area. In the terminal phase of the flight the Hermes is guided to the target utilizing a semi-active laser seeker. It can engage both surface and airborne targets. The ground-based missile system consists of a mobile transporter/launcher with up to 24 missiles; replenishment vehicle; air reconnaissance vehicle; command post; control vehicle; and a maintenance vehicle. The sensors provided the Hermes missile system include a missile guidance radar and a stabilized day/night optronic system with two-channel laser designator-ranger and auto-tracker.
