Indonesia to acquire short-range Orlikon Skyshield air defense systems

Short-range air defense Orlikon Skyshield (Oerlikon Skyshield)


In January, 2013, the company Rheinmetall announced the conclusion of a contract for the supply of six complexes "Orlikon Skyshield", as well as ammunition and related services to the command of the armed forces of Indonesia. Further, the Indonesian Air Force decided to increase the combat capabilities of the Orlikon Skyshield systems previously purchased from Rheinmetall by placing an order to supply an additional two fire modules.

The typical Skyshield complex includes a fire control system and two remote-controlled artillery mounts (AU) of a turret type with 35-mm anti-aircraft automatic guns. The MSA includes a target detection radar, a target tracking station, an optoelectronic unit, and a fire control center. The Indonesian version is integrated with the South Korean "Chiron" MANPADS as part of four-charge turret launchers, reports TSAMTO.

    Reimetal, of course, a concern with a name, but 35mm caliber is small, you need to create 57 mm anti-aircraft guns! hiIndeed, on occasion, these guns can work on the ground, and 57mm is a couple of orders of magnitude more effective in this regard! !!

      totally agree with you!!!! By the way, it’s time for us to remake the PKMM cartridge under a 9mm cartridge, which means more and more effective ... well, of course I’m joking, do not judge strictly, but seriously, what specific 57mm projectile needed to be done? Well, in general, the whole alignment

      35 mm, with such a rate of fire and with a controlled detonation, is quite sufficient to carry out its tasks.
      If you want 57 mm - for God's sake. Yes, even ship 305 mm with an atomic charge. There will be absolute air defense

      I think the point is different. For the 57-mm gun guided projectile will be created earlier.

    I correctly understood that in the test they shot down a drone at a distance of 489 meters and a flight speed of 50 m / s? something very, better imitated Georgia UAV in 2008, it will be a more realistic scenario

      and, corrected, they shot down a UAV at a distance of 1100 meters, and a height of 489 meters at a speed of 50m / s

        ammunition is used for air blasting which is good against a mini UAV, can they automatically change the tape to armor-piercing when approaching an armored la? the same warthog or any heavy helicopter will disassemble this complex, although they can shoot it with a screw.

    Really only against low-altitude and low-speed UAVs. What a fiction, not an air defense installation. Apparently someone was well rolled back so that this miracle came into service.

    Previously, the brand in Russian was called Oerlikon.
