Description: The Krasnopol is a 152mm artillery projectile designed to engage armored targets using a semi-active laser guidance system in the terminal phase of its trajectory. Fortifications, ships and enemy artillery sites can be engaged accurately and effectively by the Krasnopol projectile. The Krasnopol-M 155mm artillery projectile is a derivative of 152mm Krasnopol artillery projectile has been designed to be employed by western artillery systems such as the M109, G5, G6 and Russian MSTA-SE-155.

Once fired, the Krasnopol projectile follows a ballistic trajectory approaching to the target. Then the forward observer aims a laser designator illuminating the target at a maximum range of 7,000 meters. Then the Krasnopol seeker locks on the target and the navigation system corrects its trajectory in order to impact on the selected/illuminated point. The Krasnopol projectile follows a top attack pattern to achieve an optimized probability of kill against the armored target.
