9P149 ATGM Launcher Vehicle

The 9P149 vehicle is a marriage of basic MTLB chassis with the Shturm (AT-6) ATGM system. Other missiles (AT-6b and AT-6c) can be launched from helicopters; but their length exceeds the 1832-mm limit for the Shturm-S autoloader. A modular AT-6 ATGM launcher system with launcher and autoloader is available for installation on vehicles, fixed sites and boats.
