The 9P157-2 Khrizantema-S is a Tier 8 special premium Tank Destroyer under Marat Shishkin's dealership.

History[ | ]

Class: Anti-Tank Missile Carrier
Developed: 1980s-2017
Service: 2005 (2010 for 9P157-2)
Vehicles Built: 79
Operators: Russia, Azerbaijan, Libya

The development of a next generation anti-tank guided missile for the Soviet Union started as early as the 1980s, but the first Khrizantema (“Chrysanthemum”) ATGMs became available only after its fall, in 1996. These laser-guided missiles were very advanced for their time, but also quite expensive, preventing its proliferation. They come with two warhead types, tandem HEAT and thermobaric.

They are fairly universal and can be launched from several platforms, including the Mi-28 Havoc attack helicopter and a launching platform called Khrizantema-S. Khrizatema-S is a dedicated tank killer with advanced optics and electronics and a dual launcher that extends from its BMP-3-based hull (the vehicle even retains BMP-3’s ability to swim). It can track several targets at once and devastate it at long distances while the main body can safely stay behind cover.

The first Khrizantema-S prototype appeared in public as early as 1996 (during the EUROSATORY expo in Paris) with the initial production variant (9P157) entering service in 2005. Around 2010, an upgraded variant called 9P157-2 appeared with a modernized Ukrainian optics system and a hull machinegun the original model lacked. This variant was in use until 2017.

Recently, another modernized 9P157-2 variant appeared, featuring a new Belarusian optics system, a thermal imager, improved missiles and electronics. It went through the state trials and was accepted in service around 2017-2018. Additionally, the original 9P157 Khrizantemas were (or are being) upgraded to the same optics system in order to increase their combat value.

In battle, Khrizantema-S units operate as long-range tank hunters both in offense and defense. According to Russian sources, they are capable of destroying any western tank at 6km or so. 79 vehicles of this type were built to date, with 14 vehicles sold to Libya between 2010 and 2013. The Libyan Khrizantema-S TDs have definitely seen some combat during the Libyan Civil War, although the results of their deployment and their losses are unclear.

Vehicle Traits[ | ]

  • Marksman: This vehicle can fire advanced ammunition from its accurate weapon, allowing it to destroy enemy armor at long distances.
  • Missiles Only: This vehicle is only armed with anti-tank guided missiles or unguided rockets, making it only viable in mid-to-long-range combat, since both are often difficult to aim at short distances.
  • Missile Salvo: This vehicle may fire multiple ATGMs or unguided rockets in a short period of time, potentially overwhelming enemy defenses such as the APS.
  • Weapon Diversity: This vehicle has several weapons or mode of fire options that you can switch between in battle.
  • Unmanned Turret: This vehicle features a remotely-controlled or low-profile turret that receives reduced damage.
