US marines have tested the missile complex HIMARS from the ship

79
On the website of the Naval Institute of the United States Navy information was published that the Marine Corps had tested the HIMARS multiple launch rocket system for the possibility of firing from a ship.


The M142 HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) is a highly mobile tactical-missile artillery system. It was created at the end of 90's by Lockheed Martin Corporation in partnership with BAE Systems and is serially produced from 2003. HIMARS was developed on the basis of an FMTV (Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles) chassis weighing 5 tons. The basic ammunition for M142 are MLRS missiles (М26, GMLRS, AT-2 and others) with a range of up to 70 km.

US marines have tested the missile complex HIMARS from the ship


The test results should have provided an answer to the question of whether HIMARS can hit targets with guided missiles when fired from a board ship. As a target, an anti-aircraft defense system was selected, located on an island located at a distance of 70 km from the launch point. According to the military command, the target was successfully destroyed.

The rocket was launched from the deck of the amphibious transport dock USS Anchorage (LPD-23) of the San Antonio type (the vehicle with the rocket launcher was located on the ship’s helipad). The command of the US Marine Corps indicates that previously the Marines needed to land on the shore, equip firing points, and only after that use rocket artillery, but now they will be able to destroy targets along the way to them, reports "Warspot".

          there is only one logical conclusion - corrected shells were checked, but not a gyroscope, they were screwed onto a land product

      Some kind of degradation is observed, from electromagnetic guns we switched to multiple launch rocket systems. And if you drive a tank onto the deck and shoot, will there be an artillery ship? I wonder how much money was allocated from the budget for this program?

        They will place dozens of little pukaloks with missiles and cannons and will fire without landing. The risk is minimal, the impact is maximum ... especially if in the "banana republic" mock. Yankers on go money began to consider, develop economical options.

      But seriously, then nothing but bewilderment this show does not cause. Good marines who are afraid to land on the coast are just sailors in this case ...
      Yes, and shooting HIMARS from the side of transport is rather weak - let them fall from the Abrams from the deck, which is really there if you are afraid to land on the coast lol

      This is not Korea, but China - an ersatz gunboat to support the landing during the most dangerous period of the landing operation: between the landing of the first echelon and the landing of artillery. Since it is too expensive to build a sufficient number of specialized fire support ships for landing operations for only 2-3 operations, the Chinese decided to try the good old way of mobilizing and arming ships.

          Looking at the trends of unification, we can assume that they tested the capabilities of missiles and guidance systems for subsequent use as part of the ship’s armament. It's written:

          The test results should have provided an answer to the question of whether HIMARS can hit targets with guided missiles when fired from a board ship.

    Cheap deck repair after launches?

    And they will find out when they carry out the following tests: “Repairing the deck after a healthy breeze”, well, if Congress approves, but I think it will, the money will be returned by kickbacks ...

    a car with a rocket launcher is located on the helipad of the ship

    They would also tell how long they placed the installation on the helipad and what had to be done for this.

    These can! Well, they made such a revolution in military science with these tests !!! Afraid of losing ships near Korea? Loaded on a barge, camouflaged in coal and into battle!

    The test results were to answer the question of whether HIMARS can hit targets with guided missiles when firing from a board of a going ship

    For one, they will prove to the command that the landing runway is not intended for fire.

      Ship is expensive. And in terms of the cost of construction, and in terms of its content.
      And some container ship will pay off in N years, and it will begin to bring profit. At the same time, land-based tactical missile launchers located on it are quite capable of supporting the landing.

        The problem is, let's say, boldly not in the launch site, but in the missile control and orientation system. And the runway is expensive and not designed for this. This is another advertising action, no more

          It is intended for harder use. For example, to receive and send “Harriers”, armed with the ILC

            Not just the Harriers, but not all classes of helicopters should take off from this deck, you are just interested in English sources of what this ship is. An expensive test

              It’s just these English sources that indicate that the flight deck of the San Antonio class ships is also intended for receiving and taking off Harriers from it

                This ship was specially redone for NASA's Orion program, although of course, why not hammer in nails with a microscope, you can!

    The fact of the matter is that the Marine Corps in the United States is a completely separate type of troops, loosely connected with land explorers, and the Navy too. At least in the field of armaments - it is completely independent, and, apparently, the test data of the weapons of the land investigators are purely in order to decide whether it should be purchased for the ILC and its field of application.
    And, of course, all this is past the ticket office, if suddenly there will be a “Ball” or “Bastion” on the shore - they will drown the trough with the marines and this miracle machine so quickly that those “mother” will not have time to shout.

      “And what?” That America is waging wars with certain types of troops, or all the same they are ALL subordinate to a single command that throws “into battle” what it decides or is available. That is, this whole idea and your words imply that "all other types of US troops were covered with a copper basin." No sick imagination and even vodka can tell me such a situation, and moreover, after such losses, the mattresses would continue to "land" somewhere else. request

      This is to suppress coastal defense that impedes landing, and the “Ball” and “Bastion” must unroll the KR and aviation ...

      to decide: whether it is necessary to purchase it for the ILC and its scope.

      Most likely it is.

    In Canada, the container ship rebuilt into an integrated supply tanker
    October 17 2017
    At a Canadian shipyard, Davie Shipbuilding on Monday was pulled out of a construction dock by an Asterix integrated supply tanker refurbished, reports bmpd.


    [Apparently, they are launching a grand war, landing boats with a draft of not more than 1,2 meters for Abrams weighing 65 tons, container ships are being converted into military vessels, now multiple launch rocket systems from landing ships, and still do not print much.

    The missile was launched from the deck of the USS Anchorage (LPD-23) landing transport dock type San Antonio (the car with the rocket launcher was located on the helipad of the ship).

    HIMARS in a certain sector seems to be working .. Do you need to deploy this ship, or will the truck steer along the deck?

    Or I, or Americans from someone trying to make an idiot request . I understand why we tested the "shell-C1" from the side - to check whether it is possible to "take and put" the installation immediately without an epic alteration, we found out - yes it is possible. But why should the mattresses be “screwed” to the barges, and what can they put the installations at all on, not on warships (there simply is no place there)? Moreover, the idea of ​​"we bomb all or throw tomahawks" is declared among the merikos. So what the hell to them this junk and in such a perverted form? negative

      Saving. Cheaper than axes and aircraft. To disperse the pygmies is enough. It will completely prepare the shore for landing at a sufficient depth, get off the boat and continue to support the advance of the marines.

    They look like GPS guided missiles. Therefore, the result.
    I have long had a question why not make us such a system - I screwed the knob with aerodynamic rudders and turned the Grad rocket into a high-precision one. It would be very beneficial to turn conventional ammunition into high-precision.
