Rare shots: the cruiser "Peter the Great" shot out of the rocket "Waterfall"

9
As part of the exercises in the North navy the heavy nuclear-powered cruiser Peter the Great launched the RPK-6 Waterfall missile defense system. These unique missile torpedoes are capable of hitting enemy submarines at ranges up to 50 km. When launched, the rocket immediately dives into the water and moves away to a safe distance from the ship, and after some time takes off into the air and delivers a torpedo to the target area, after which the warhead is again in the water.

    I’m embarrassed to ask. Do you really have to bathe a rocket first in the sea in order to send it to the target later? Or did you come up with such a trick to use torpedo tubes in the fleet? Or is the complex universal and instead of flying it can immediately separate a torpedo and attack the enemy at short distances, so to speak? If so then take off my hat. hi This is perhaps one of the most interesting missiles in use.

      The new anti-submarine missile RPK-6 "Waterfall" was intended for the armament of new submarines, which affected its appearance. Ammunition was proposed to run through existing torpedo tubes caliber 533 mm. This led to the appearance of certain restrictions on the size and weight of the product, as well as its tactical and technical characteristics. In addition, a similar method of launching identified the algorithms of various systems of the submarine and the rocket itself.
      The anti-submarine missile system RPK-6М “Vodopad-NK” was installed on the 1144 and 1164 missile cruisers, as well as on the large anti-submarine ship of the 11551 project “Admiral Chabanenko”. On these ships, standard 533-mm torpedo tubes located on the sides at the stern are used to launch anti-submarine missiles. The patrol ships of the 11540 project, also equipped with the Vodopad-NK missile system, to launch the 83PH and 84PH missiles were to use original universal launchers located in the rear of the superstructure.

      And I already suggested - sailors take care of their work - so as not to scuttle the deck after launches. smile

      judging by the location, the rocket will be uncomfortable to launch into the sky !!! or rather, the rocket may not care, but everything around it - not really !!! wassat wassat wassat

      Vika is for such ... military issues:
      The stage of "diving into the water" is due to the unification of the rocket-torpedo for launching both from surface ships and from submarines from torpedo tubes

      Is it enough?

    As my daughter says, “some kind of miracle”, if she once again dived into the water, my brain would explode. And besides urkaine, who else has such missiles?
