Portable automated artillery fire control system

The Malakhit system is designed to provide fire control for artillery units when firing semi-active laser-guided and unguided munitions.

Advantages and features

When employed, the Malakhit AAFCS provides:

  • day/night target detection and identification;
  • target range and angular position measurement (including for moving targets);
  • target designation (laser illumination);
  • survey of command observation post (COP) and firing position (FP);
  • firing data computation;
  • COP-FP data exchange;
  • firing data delivery to the gun;
  • automated entry of firing data (flight mission) into GAP.

Basic features of the COP:

  • carried in packs;
  • automatic survey control (GPS/GLONASS equipment);
  • small-sized, jam-resistant, long-range communications equipment;
  • round-the-clock operation (with a thermal imaging sight).


COP hardware (carried in three packs):

  • laser designator/rangefinder complete with a thermal imaging sight;
  • commander’s console;
  • radio.

FP hardware:

  • commander’s console;
  • radio;
  • gun terminal set.
