Description: The KM-1M Krasnopol-M2 is a 155mm artillery projectile designed to engage armored targets using a semi-active laser (SAL) guidance system in the terminal phase of its trajectory. Krasnopol-M2 is a further development based on Krasnopol-M. It is aimed at the export market to be employed by western artillery systems such as the M109, G5, G6, FH77, TRF1 and Russian MSTA-SE-155. Fortifications, ships and enemy artillery sites stationary or on the move at day/night can be engaged accurately and effectively by the Krasnopol-M2 artillery guided weapon system.

Once fired, the K155M projectile follows a ballistic trajectory approaching to the target. Then the forward observer aims the Malakhit automatic fire control system's laser designator illuminating the target at a maximum range of 7,000 meters. The Krasnopol's seeker locks on the target and the navigation system corrects its trajectory in order to impact on the selected point. The projectile follows a top attack pattern to achieve an optimized probability of kill against the armored target. The Krasnopol-M2 has a hit probability of 80-90 percent.
