The Russian armed forces received the first upgraded guided 9M333 missiles for Strela-10 (Arrow) antiaircraft systems.

Defense industry representatives and military experts believe the new missile will make the air defense more effective and provide several advantages to Strela-10 against other antiaircraft weapons.

9M333 guided antiaircraft missiles enhance the ability to fight against low-flying airplanes and helicopters due to bigger guidance accuracy. The missile is engaged by the fire-and-forget principle and the launcher can change the position right after firing.

The Strela missile system enjoys several advantages against other air defense weapons, including heavy ones, as it has a high floating capacity and is shielded against bullets and fragmentation.
