The main reason the Russians used the gun-launched AT missile is that their chance of hitting a target at long range were so small that NATO tank gunners had such a huge advantage over them and they need something to try to level the playing field.

What is strange is the Russians kept on going with the gun-launched AT missile system after close to 30 years instead on trying to up-grade their tank sights for their main guns.
