The Bulat (micro) missiles can work in tandem with other bigger missile systems, to provide a lower-cost effective guided missile system against light armoured vehicles. According to the press service of the Rostec company, Bulat is “not a system but a small-size guided missile that can be used in various systems to complement heavy Kornets [anti-tank guided missiles].”
