In general, "Stugna" has proven its high effectivity in the war with the russian federation: Ukrainian fighters regularly report on the equipment destroyed by this system.

So, in particular, in one of the episodes, this ATGM demonstrated ability to destroy targets even at a distance of 5.3 km, overcoming the "limit" of 5 km specified for the Stugna-P.

At the same time, Stugna effectively destroys not only tanks, but also russian helicopters during he flight, namely the Ka-52 attack helicopter.

In addition, earlier Defense Express noted one of the unique features of this ATGM: the missile's ability to make sharp maneuvers after it is "shot" into the laser path.
