According to the State Armaments Program, which is being developed by the RF Ministry of Defense, all types of weapons for the ground forces must be equipped with high-precision ammunition. This applies to tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, self-propelled artillery systems, rocket launcher systems, and Iskander-M systems.

Mikhail Osyko, the head of the Defense Ministry’s Department for Providing State Defense Order of the Russian Federation, explained that the means of defeating ground forces by traditional means is not enough, and modern high-precision weapons will remain a key focus of the Russian defense industry.
