The Izdeliye 305E missile was first unveiled at the International Military Technical Forum Army 2021. It was developed by the Kolomna Mechanical Engineering Design Bureau (KBM, part of NPO High-Precision Weapons), part of the Rostec State Corporation.

KBM Deputy CEO Sergey Mikhailov said the Izdeliye 305E missile may be included in the armament of the Ka 52M and Mi-28NM export-oriented combat helicopters. This would radically increase their ability to fight against all kinds of targets on the battlefield.
