35
According to the press service of the holding NPO Splav, which specializes in the development and production of multiple launch rocket systems, the TON-1A heavy flame-throwing system Solneptek will be improved, reports RNS.

The TOC-1A is being upgraded. Major changes will affect the ammunition. It is planned to significantly improve the accuracy and range of fire. In addition, the wheeled chassis will be used
- said in a statement

TOS-1A "Sun" will be modernized


"Solntsepek" created on the basis of tank T-72, which houses a platform with a package of 24 guide tubes for rockets. The system is intended for fire support of infantry and tanks, destruction of enemy manpower, open and closed firing positions in various types of offensive and defensive combat, as well as for the destruction of lightly armored vehicles and vehicles.

Firing is conducted by unguided rockets of caliber 220 mm at a distance of 6 km. Released ammunition is undermined at the surface of the target, as a result of which the explosive contained in it mixes with air and ignites. Occurs detonating volumetric detonation. The resulting main damaging factors - high-temperature field and shock wave - spread over an area up to 40 thousand square meters. meters

NPO "Splav" developed multiple launch rocket systems in the interests of the Ground Forces, Navy, VKS (Grad, Uragan, Smerch, Tornado-G, TOC-1А, Udav-1М, " Fire "," Dam "). Products of JSC "Splav" "adopted by more than 50 countries.

    The range of the complex is definitely not enough, it would not hurt to increase it.

            Probably, this figure will also change.

                    Of course I want to increase, but in my opinion there is a connection - the amount of charge and range.

      By the year 18, they had already announced a new system to replace the Solntsepek-TOSOCHKA, with new warheads, range, and so on ... hi

          But it does not need to be written off ... the modernization of these systems is logical and necessary, taking into account the experience of use in Syria ... and the first thing that needs to be thoroughly worked on is the range. 6 km is too small ... I think the range should be brought up to at least 30-40 km.

            I agree that these samples may well coexist, but the range is 30-40 km. It would have looked solid.

      What for him range !? The complex was originally conceived for firing almost direct fire. It was expected that he would play the role of assault artillery, acting directly in the battle formations of tank and motorized rifle divisions, solving those issues that tanks and infantry could not solve (for example, the fight against enemy tank-dangerous manpower, sheltered in a building and dispersed in a large area. (Doesn’t it look like BMPT)). This is precisely why the tank chassis was chosen. Exclusively to ensure the protection and mobility of the machine on the battlefield.
      If you need a range - so we have them! The city is called. The same shots are fired from him with a thermobaric warhead. And to the hurricane ... and to the tornado ... So the garden with an increase in range and the use of a wheeled chassis is absolutely illogical and not understandable ...

        Few people know that the MLRS has such a very important characteristic as the minimum firing range. To which it is impractical to apply them because of = enormous dispersion in range. And with an increase in the maximum range, the minimum grows.

        As a result, a "dead zone" appears, in which, in fact, the "Sun" should work

        I completely agree with you! During the analysis of the database in Grozny, "Pinocchio" was recognized as indispensable in urban combat. The system could launch a rocket literally for a neighboring house / block, or simply take it to hell. "Grad" so be able ??? Far and medium dofiga and more, but such as "Pinocchio / Sun" no one else has.

    To increase the range and accuracy, it’s a good thing, but I doubt something about the wheeled chassis ... This is only if the range is likely to be 15 kilometers.

      Why significantly increase the range when there is a MLRS "Smerch" with a range of up to 120 km and these are the ammunition:
      9M55S - rocket with thermobaric warhead 9M216 "Excitement". An explosion of one shell creates a thermal field with a diameter of at least 25 m (depending on the terrain). The field temperature is over +1000 ° C, the lifetime is no less than 1,4 s [11]. Designed to destroy manpower, open and sheltered in open type fortifications and objects of unarmored and lightly armored military equipment. It is most effective in the steppe and desert, a city located on a non-hilly area. Ammunition tests were completed in 2004. By Order of the President of the Russian Federation No. 1288 of October 7, 2004, 9M55C was adopted by the Russian Army.

      It is necessary to upgrade in range up to 10-15 km, and the main thing is charge power and firing accuracy ...

    The main job is to increase range and accuracy, and so the weapon is very serious.

    It’s great that it will be improved. Is it possible to write the article again, only it has already been improved and delivered in full to the Troops, otherwise there will be expressions of the type when they only spoil the character of the reader.
