25
Divisions of the heavy flame-throwing systems "Suntsep" will appear in the combined-arms armies. According to experts, such a step has been taken based on the successful experience of their use in Syria. This newspaper reports News.




Previously, it was believed that a single battery of such machines for all the armed forces of the Russian Federation was enough to fight terrorism.

According to the newspaper, “a battalion will appear in every military district with nine TOS-1А“ Solntsepek ”, in armies - in a company with three combat vehicles. In total, troops will receive more than 70 flamethrower systems; the battalions will appear as part of the radiation, chemical and biological defense brigades (RCBZ), and the companies will strengthen the chemical industry. ” At present, there are five brigades and 10 RCBZ regiments in the Russian Armed Forces.

At the beginning of 2018, the first company kit of the Sun Chains entered the 10-th separate regiment of the RCBZ of the 41-th combined-arms army of the Central Military District.

According to military expert Alexey Khlopotov, TOC-1А showed high efficiency during the operation in Syria.

This is an effective assault weapon for destruction including fortifications in the mountains or in residential buildings. From him you will not hide in a trench or dugout. The power of the thermobaric mixture explosion is such that it is impossible to survive once in the affected area. The use of "Suns" will save the lives of Russian soldiers during the assault on the equipped strongholds of the enemy,
told the expert.

The newspaper reminds that unguided rockets in thermobaric equipment of caliber 220 mm provide a firing range of 6 km, upgraded - up to 10 km. Volley full package covers territory in 4 square. km

    shells in thermobaric equipment of caliber 2220 mm
    I understand that a typo ... but it would be interesting ... This is ODAB - almost 500.
    But actually, I thought what a weapon is for a divisional link ...

      Assigned to the engineering troops, from this and proceed, it seems purely operational subordination.

      But also to stand in vain for years - also not in a businesslike way.

    Great news about the powerful enhancement of the shock capabilities of the aircraft. These complexes would still have at least a range of up to 25-30 km ... or the battery positions are reachable even for mortars from the front end ..

    And will this weapon withstand the 155mm howitzers counter-battery fire?

      Not stand it. Moreover, the range of application is extremely small. An upgrade is being developed to increase range.

        What was mentioned earlier. Assault weapons to suppress infantry in fortifications. Even a 120mm mortar (in theory) can hit back. Confrontation with artillery (with counter-battery radars) is like death!

          Reaction time ..
          “Depending on the situation, targets can be fired with single and twin shots from two barrels. NURS launch control is automatic, the duration of a full salvo with twin starts is 6 seconds, with single shots it is 12 seconds, and the readiness to open fire at a visible target with the moment the vehicle was stopped - 90 seconds.

          When solsepeki in motion, getting into them is difficult. But, if they stopped to give a volley from 8 km, then there will probably be no one to answer. The main thing is to keep them in depth, and to advance to a position only after a proven target.

    The range is normal. Do you think a flamethrower with a Bumblebee at a distance of 400 meters from the enemy is more likely to survive?

    Such complexes in theory already! should be in combat units, or even they’ve delivered to Azerbaijan, while only prototypes are available.
