    In the previous clip, forward thrusters, which are being fired, are apparently visible at least at the 38 s mark.

    For the first time in the world to set a fundamentally new product seeker - optical tri-band (or trehspektralnaya) operates in the ultraviolet, near-infrared and mid-infrared range. This allows you to get more information about the purpose of making complex "selective" weapon.


    No UV band there but near IR and Mid IR and optical

    They say that it uses UltraViolet (UV)....And UV is a staple of ManPads.

    Seems like a traditional russian way to stabilize and initial inclining towards target of "SAM's".

    Many manpads use UV filters because a Flare will generate lots of IR signal and UV signal as it burns, but a hot engine does not emit UV rays, so with a UV filter if it spots a hotspot that emits UV rays it can dismiss it as being a flare or the sun...
