Description: The Ataka, AT-9 Whirlwind NATO-codename or 9M120 Soviet industrial code, is a long range, supersonic anti-tank missile designed to be installed on a wide range of airborne, naval and ground-based platforms. It features a tandem shaped charge warhead to defeat Explosive Reactive Armor (ERA) protected tanks and heavyweight armored vehicles. A version fitted with High Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT) warhead was designed to defeat small vessels, fortifications, low altitude helicopters and airplanes flying at low speed, and light armored vehicles both stationary or on the move. In addition to the tandem HEAT, the Shturm-Ataka weapon can be provided alternatively with demolition and penetration rod warheads. Its guidance system consists of Semi Automatic Command to Line-Of-Sight (SACLOS) via radiofrequency immune to Infrared (IR) and electronic jamming. The former Soviet Union fielded the Ataka missile family in 1989.

The Shturm-SM, 9K132 industrial code, is a modernized version of the Shturm-Ataka supersonic anti-tank missile system developed in the late 1980s and upgraded by KBM in 2012. The new anti-tank weapon features day/night capability in all weather conditions compared with the Shturm-S weapon. The laser-guided Shturm-SM can be released from airborne (helicopters), land and sea platforms. Its warhead has been optimized for the destruction of heavy armored tanks, fortified structures and low speed, low altitude flying aircraft such as helicopters and/or Unmaned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) at ranges of up to 6,000 meters. The Russian Army accepted the new Shturm-SM weapon system on December 5, 2012.
