    "Willow" - this is a very serious argument of the foot soldiers against front-line aviation and not only. Good weapon.

      "Willow" is a very serious argument

      As I understand it, the central innovation there is an automated control system (AUS), which itself alerts the operator about the approach, a potential target

          If sclerosis does not change, then on the Needles TsU was only a voice on the radio (R-174P?)

          But this essentially infantry complex must have the height of defeat for the destruction of strategic missile carriers? Why?
          It is enough to destroy what is acting on the infantry, attack aircraft and helicopters.

          4.5 km for MANPADS is not enough? S-10 has less, and Osa has not much more than -5 km. True, there may be nuances. Yes, and other MANPADS, the same Stingers, have a lower ceiling, and Mistral no more, although the Mistral is no longer portable

      There was infa that Armenia bought (took on credit) the Russian “Verba” MANPADS. I would like to find out from the professionals on the site - how is this weapon system better than the previous ones, as far as I remember, there were Needles of different modifications?

          That's right, her GSN is better, it works not only in the infrared spectrum but also in the ultraviolet spectrum! The range and altitude and warheads are also increased

        Simply put, "Willow" as the last modification of the "Needle" works better on small UAVs.

    Why not hand over a few kits to Afghan "air traffic controllers" for field trials? So to speak, to reciprocate already overseas "partners".

      They will shoot at those targets for which they will be paid more. No one now knows how much money ISIS hid after the collapse in Syria and Iraq. So, not only Hercules can be at gunpoint ...

    Pussy-willow is just a superweapon, it’s great that this MANPADS has a “friend or foe” recognition complex, that it happened that ours hit our planes as in the Georgian war against Ossetia in 2008 should not be repeated ...

    In Kovrov, in a training course in 91-92, ALL motorized rifles with Igla were natives of Central Asia, it’s PPC, especially that the USSR collapsed, and I personally gave the oath to someone, “I serve my people”, well, my people are Russian, and here to whom they and other residents of the former USSR swore allegiance? Guidance and shooting from "Willow" is not much different from "Needles"

    The brigade should have more serious means than willow, MANPADS is a good mobile weapon for the battalion. Now air strikes come from medium altitudes, above 5 km, it turns out that the brigade does not have independent protection against such strikes. The brigade is a rather large connection, and with such means she’s not able to tear herself away from her army’s air defense umbrella, and wander off the main forces. But it’s kind of like a maneuverable operational unit that must move quickly along the front or enter a breakthrough. This can only be done without paying attention to the cover from the outside, defend yourself.
