The Ministry of Defense will receive ten modernized "Solntsepekov"

25
This month, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will receive ten upgraded heavy flame throwers TOC-1A "Solntsepek", according to the department of information and mass communications of the military department.


The modernization of the base model has affected, first of all, the range and accuracy of guidance. Thus, the range of TOC-1A increased to 6 kilometers, and targeting in the horizontal and vertical planes is now done using electro-hydraulic drives using a laser rangefinder and ballistic computer.

The Ministry of Defense will receive ten modernized "Solntsepekov"


We add that the heavy flame-thrower system "Solntsepek" is designed to disable lightly armored and automotive vehicles, arson and destruction of buildings and buildings. TOC is very effective for the destruction of enemy personnel located in open areas and in fortifications.

This flamethrower system was adopted by the Russian army in 2001. It is mounted on the base of the chassis. tank T-72, which allows you to protect the crew and ammunition from enemy fire.

"Sun" proved to be effective during the anti-terrorist operation in Syria. It is in service with government troops of the republic.

    Please tell me, what is the reason for the short range of the "Sun" in comparison with other systems of volley fire?

      What is the reason for the short range of the Sun in comparison with other systems of multiple launch rocket?

      Since I didn’t see any mention in open sources on the essence of this issue, I had my own definite thoughts.
      Perhaps the desire to maximize the use of rocket volume under warheads and predetermined the "small" engine in comparison with other MLRS. Obviously from here and such a range ...

        There thermobaric warheads and not volume-detonating. Therefore, no "distribution of the flame mixture"

      Friend.
      Please tell me, what is the reason for the short range of the "Sun" in comparison with other systems of volley fire?

      Most likely the amount of solid fuel is sacrificed to the weight of warheads. The range is less, but the area of ​​destruction is greater. And so, for the MLRS there are shells with thermobaric warheads. For "Tornado" for example.

      The range is essentially lowered to please the warhead.
      A mixture of liquid (propyl nitrate) and light metal powder (magnesium) is used as a filler in the warhead of thermobaric ammunition. The warhead is equipped with a special device that mixes the mixture during the flight of the rocket.


      The picture shows how small the back of the projectile, compared to the head.

      Please tell me what caused the short range of the "Sunshine"

      Due to a rather interesting effect: the larger the maximum firing range of the MLRS, the greater the minimum. That is, a range that it does not make sense to shoot at because of the giant sieving in range.
      For example, “Tornadoes” are not fired by some missiles at a range of less than 40 km. Despite the presence of such a “smart” component in such RSs, it reduces the dispersion in the salvo.

        I’m wondering if for a new TOS, for example, use a longer base like MAZ-73132 (of course adapted for TOS) and for her to use a new package with new long shells, this will allow the range to increase to 10 km, which will also make it possible to fire without endangering the equipment and crew?

          And what is the point in duplicating the existing MLRS artillery? Especially since the military units for all are either already in the troops, or have been developed, are ready for production, but the MoD is not purchasing them for some reason.
          We have the opposite problem - there is no short-range MLRS, and it is precisely this TOS that occupies this niche. All that artillery has to offer is dancing with tambourines around the brake rings, which reduce the speed of the RS and thereby allow you to shoot at short ranges with acceptable dispersion

      "Sun" can not be compared with multiple launch rocket systems, because it was originally created as a flamethrower and not an artillery installation for use in counter-terrorism operations. That is, to defeat terrorists in fortified fortified positions, including with the use of dugouts and underground passages in the absence of artillery and aviation resistance from the enemy.
      Thus, a large range is not needed, but a volumetric rather than a high-explosive detonation is required.

    Explosion and fire mixtures are, as it were, different concepts. In general, thermobaric ammunition is an improved and reduced version of volumetric detonating explosives. Instead of explosive mixtures, it’s just used explosives.

    And what is the "zrada"? I understand that if they wrote that 10 new Solntsekyoks entered the troops, we would be glad of such infe, otherwise we would modernize 10 units of old equipment, and they are presented as a great achievement! sad
