Combat complexes "Daredevil" and "Centimeter" modernize

The Techmash Concern of the Rostec State Corporation plans to upgrade the systems of the first generation of corrected artillery weapons. These intentions were announced at the scientific and technical conference by the general director of the Bakhirev Machine-Building Institute Alexander Gordyukhin. The details of the project have not been disclosed yet, but it is worth explaining what the “Brave” and “Centimeter” are.

Combat complexes "Daredevil" and "Centimeter" modernize

These are complexes capable of quickly hitting targets with a laser tip, bypassing one, maximum three shells. They are designed to destroy armored vehicles, launchers, artillery systems, command and control and communications, bridges, ferries and defensive structures.

For "Brave" is used the same 240 millimeter artillery mine 3F5. And for a centimeter - 152-mm howitzer projectile.

They were created at the beginning of 1980's. The development is based on the Russian concept of pulse correction RCIC.

Ammunition "Brave" and "Centimeter" equipped with jet powder pulse engines. When approaching the target (for 20-600 meters), the engines correct the trajectory of the projectile. Time targeting "Brave" is 0,1-0,3 seconds, and the target range reaches 3600-9200 meters. The "Centimeter" - 0,5-3 seconds and 300-7000 meters.

Both complexes performed well in the Afghan and Chechen wars. For example, in 1985, the “Daredevil” smashed a dilapidated fortress in the foothills of the Pokhvalonokok, where a group of militants sat down.

And although it is not known what will be the modernization of the complexes, we can assume that we are talking about their automation. While their work is completely dependent on spotters. They are forced to wear 18-kilogram range finders and other heavy equipment and rely on shooting parameters on a laptop, reports RG-Sil

      :))) Yes, a suitable name

    The names of our technology as always pleasing))))

    It seems I can imagine how these names are given, at a meeting of engineers:
    "and so we have a deadly thing that can destroy a thousand people, and equipment in one shot in a radius of 10 kilometers. - What shall we call?
    -Well, let it be (floor, finger, ceiling) piano .... or cricket, or butterfly .... a fly, not a wasp, ... a wasp already, .... okay, let’s do it as usual - dandelion! "

      These names are inherited from the names of the R&D within which they are being developed. And since such R&D usually goes under the heading "SS", then, accordingly, their names are legendary so that the enemy does not guess. So there are Pinocchio, Solntsepeki and other Hyacinths with Tulips.

      Do not touch the "Dandelion"! He is already reserved!

    The laser beam is clearly visible through special optics ... what spotter is the weakest point in this system ... if the enemy detects ... it remains only to die heroically.

      Yes, the bet is on the heroism and skill of our soldier.
      In the USSR, too, the bet was precisely on that.
      I believe in our warriors as defenders, no matter what, but I don’t want Schaubs to die when the problem can be solved with new technological means.
      The big question is for the Defense Ministry and the mounted ones, is it not time to adopt the experience of the partners - the enemy? Not to spend money on all this garbage, but to take care of the safety of our soldiers? After all, there are design decisions in many cases when our soldiers have to risk their lives!

      Well, you can probably make adjustments from whatever type of robot is uranium 9 or a drone, most likely they don’t tell us about it

      If it (the laser) is on continuously. And if it turns on for a few seconds, when the shell approaches, it will already be “late to see”. While the enemy otvetka arrives, the calculation will already leave ...

        The development of modern technical means in the troops is a vital necessity.
        There are more drones, scout robots, gunners and the best ... and now, but never be later!

    In the world, at the moment two principles of high-precision delivery of the projectile to the target are used. This is our Russian - based on impulse correction (mainly on the final flight section), and the American based on aerodynamic control along the entire flight path example 155 mm Copperhead and our Krasnopol. We have both technology adjustable munitions.
    Work is underway on the second generation of high-precision systems based on adjustable artillery shells that meet the principle of "shot-and-forget," and this can be easier done on the basis of the Russian missile pulse system for correcting the projectile trajectory.

      It is good when there are people in the country who evoke a deep sense of respect.
