In Libya, seen self-propelled missile "Chrysanthemum"

During the fighting in Libya, a self-propelled anti-tank complex "Chrysanthemum-S" (Western designation - AT-15 "Springer") was noticed. The combat vehicle took part in the fighting in the area of ​​Tripoli airport.

As is known, the supply of this weapons from Russia began in the time of Muammar Gaddafi - in 2010, the Libyan army received 4 units of equipment and about one hundred and fifty missiles for them.

In Libya, seen self-propelled missile "Chrysanthemum"

In October, 2011, one of these self-propelled units was involved in battles against government forces. Experts then on video frames noted that the "Chrysanthemum" is quite well mastered by the crew. Therefore, assumptions were made that the car was driven by former Libyan deserters.

Despite the fact that the forces subordinate to Gaddafi had a significant park tanks T-72, guided missiles were not used against them, they hit stationary objects of government troops.

The next time, the Chrysanthemum-S complexes in Libya started talking in 2013, when the troops of the new government of the country received another 10 machines from Russia.

The new owners involved them in battles with Islamist formations.

"Chrysanthemum - C" is an all-weather anti-tank complex. Target systems are capable of guiding missiles along the laser beam, and with the help of radio commands. Ammunition is 15 ATGM. Target hit range - 6000 m.

The fighting machine is created on the BMP-3 chassis. With a weight of 20 tons, it can move on a highway at speeds up to 70 km / h. Speed ​​afloat - 10 km / h. Cruising on the highway - 600 km. Crew - 2 person.

          The missile is guided by a narrow radio beam, respectively, there is no coil with a wire, it beats further.

          Ammunition ATGM "Chrysanthemum-S" consists of two types of ATGMs in the TPK: 9M123 with a supercaliber tandem-cumulative warhead and 9M123F missiles with a high-explosive (thermobaric) warhead.

          The missile is made according to the normal aerodynamic design with a diameter of the warhead of 152 mm. In the tail part of the rocket is the rocket rudder drive, which are located in front of the nozzle block and placed perpendicular to the axis of the nozzles. Missiles are capable of hitting targets at ranges from 400 to 5000 meters when guided by a laser beam and from 400 to 6000 meters when guided by radio channel. The speed of the hit ground targets is up to 60 km / h, air - up to 340 km / h. Penetration of a rocket with a cumulative warhead is from 1000 to 1100 mm for dynamic protection [5] [4].
          The main TTX ATGM 9M123:
          Maximum launch range ATGM 9М123: 5000 m
          Maximum launch range ATGM 9М123-2: 6000 m
          Minimum start range: 400 m
          Missile weight in TPK: kg 54
          Rocket launch weight: kg 46

          Maximum rocket length: 2.04 m
          Maximum wing span: 0.31 m
          Rocket engine: solid fuel
          Rocket average cruising speed: about 400 m / s
          Maximum armor penetration of a tandem cumulative warhead (homogeneous armor behind NDZ at a meeting angle of 90 degrees): 1250 mm.

      On the contrary, it was created for this. It has two main objectives on the battlefield - the destruction of tanks and the fight against highly protected firing points. A normal operator calmly launches a rocket into the bunker embrasure.

    And even such complexes could not keep the rebels. Gaddafi’s troops were not motivated and therefore lost. We must love our homeland, and not seek benefits ... who will give more.
