So it has kornets now, would be nice for them to give it a modular missile rack that could be used to mount larger ATGMs from helicopters and helicopter rocket pods if needed.
Kornet's are already over-powered: It's HEAT warhead has 1300mm RHA penetration (1400mm if you count the precursor charge). Can hit/defeat helicopters, strike drones like predator, and shoot down cruise missiles. Kornet's in tandem reliably defeat APS. Flies at Mach 1, and it's rear facing beam-riding sensor makes it incredibly difficult to jam. There's nothing even on par with it elsewhere in the world, and Javelins an TOW's can't even hold up Kornet's jock strap!
Surely at some point they'll probably develop a micro-Hermes ATGM to replace Kornet, but at the moment Kornet is still highly effective.
