    The missile can engage targets at ranges between 3.5 and 32 km, and altitudes of 15 to 45,000 feet. It utilizes semi-active radar guidance to allow close-proximity intercepts of targets flying at speeds of up to 1,200 m/sec, and employs two methods (active impulse and semi-active proximity) to activate the fragmentation warhead when in close proximity to the target. Each missile weighs 715 kg, and has a warhead of 70kg. The missile’s length is 5.55 meters and the diameter is 40 cm.
