Some years ago i have read some article about them developing such a missile to counter the treat of massive Helicopter attacks...
I have posted at least once about this topic, with images and at least one TGLSAM missile type.
Russian dedicated TGLSAMs, TGLSAGPs, IFVGLSAMs, and IFVGLSAGPs are decades old. However their development has been "just for the heck of it", and I don't think there is a military requirement for TGLSAMs or IFVGLSAMs.
I should mention that the anti-air capabilities of the Russian tanks and IFVs, again just for the heck of it, has always been huge with many battlefield successes, without much necessity for any of that capability.
The situation for IFVGLSAMs is pretty much the same, but there is more of a story to that.
The TGLSAM I posted about was 9M395T for the 115 mm tank gun with a missile diameter of 100 mm, missile mass of 17.2 kg, warhead mass of 2.5 kg, "nominal" max speed of 1350 m/s, and a "nominal" range of 10 km.Edit—Image reposted:
