"The issue of creating such projectiles is being discussed. There are conceptual ideas which we are ready to put in place should there be any request from the customer," Kochkin said, answering the question on the designing of missile projectiles for multiple launch rocket systems with warheads that would generate electromagnetic impulses, as well as electronic warfare missiles.
