The anti-tank monition АТМ-РЗ is designed to destroy tracked or wheeled armored vehicles. It produces three powerful shaped charges which penetrate into the bottom of the vehicle and/or destroy its tracks or wheels.
The charges are displaced from one another at 120° and their trajectories are inclined at 50° from the vertical. Regardless of the direction of motion of the vehicle, one or two of the charges penetrate the vehicle’s bottom. Each charge is powerful enough to pierce а hole with а diameter of 1О mm in а 300 mm thick armored steel plate from а distance of up to 0.8m when covered with camouflage layer of up to 20 cm thick.
Upon penetration in the vehicle’s compartment, the shaped charge plasma jet generates а shock wave which can neutralize the crew, cause fire, damage the controls and detonate munitions.
