Azerbaijan displayed the SOM during a military parade in Baku, according to local media sources. The SOM is for use against heavily defended, high-value targets such as surface-to-air missile (SAM) sites, aircraft, strategic assets, command and control centers, and naval vessels.

The SOM is available in four different versions: the SOM-A, SOM-J, SOM-B1, and SOM-B2. The basic version is powered by a turbojet and has a range of more than 250 kilometers.
