In ZVO, firing was carried out using high-precision ammunition "Krasnopol"

37
The defense ministry published shots with live firing, in which the latest Krasnopol ammunition was used. The shooting was carried out by combat calculations of self-propelled howitzers "Msta-S" at the Luga range (Western Military District). We are talking about upgraded high-precision guided projectile caliber 152 mm. The ammunition is notable for the accuracy of hitting a target of at least 95%.


In ZVO, firing was carried out using high-precision ammunition "Krasnopol"


The ammunition is equipped with a jet engine and a homing head on the target.

Press Service ZVO:
Such qualities make this ammunition more effective than hundreds of other conventional ones. Proof of this is the successful use of Krasnopoli during the liquidation of the terrorist sabotage group in Syria.


The shell itself is called the "high-precision trump card of the Russian artillery."

Until the moment of defeat, a laser pointer-rangefinder accompanies the target. The maximum range of destruction by the Krasnopol shell is 25 km.

The extremely moderate smoke on the exit of the Krasnopol from the barrel of the self-propelled howitzer attracts attention.

The Defense Ministry notes that target designation can be carried out not only from the ground, but also from the air.

    I wonder how much it costs ... If I don’t confuse anything, the Americans have developed something similar for their new destroyers ... and the price is under a million dollars ... If ours ... but from experience they were quite able ... so if ours did it in our million, then we reckon ahead of the rest ...

      so, if ours fit into our million, then we’ll count again ahead of the rest ...
      Well, a million, not a million ... but usually the American analogs of military and military equipment are more expensive than ours somewhere within the same order, plus or minus. In general, military pricing is a dark matter and no one gives vowing reasonable justifications and this information is strictly closed ...

      Ours didn’t invent anything special, Laser-guided UAZs have been around for a long time and not only with us, there are not only laser-guided, but also gps-guided ones.
      google for example guided missile escalibur.

          The escalibur is also actively reactive.
          but such shells have an increased range, but a reduced explosive power, because the explosive in it is less than usual.

        I agree, but it’s kind of expensive to see. After all, they didn’t show it so widely before.

            Something I don’t remember so that the MO would show such firing to the general public. Now, apparently, they are doing it right after the presidential message.
            Well, and the experts, of course, are aware that this is far from a novelty.

        Just the same only with us. Their "Copperhead" NATO troops withdrew. Being dizzy from the success of ammunition with ZhPS guidance.
        And therefore, they are now forced to raise the topic again. Using LGSN in so far only promising ammunition. For example, US "Vulkano"

          Shovels, doesn’t it seem to you that the indicated method of using Krasnopol’s is ineffective and all this is stupid ... Death row correctors are sitting on the front end, which are not there and they are potential corpses, they are all seen with their lights, and in general, how they got there ? How did you find out where the enemy was, did they get the coordinates by phone? Who! Where did you get it?
          Stupid ostentatious staging and useless in a modern war ... There should be an UAV issuing coordinates immediately to the MSTU, and more precisely to your ACS and the decision channel, or rather a bunch (all together in the form of coordinated devices and systems) as part of the Combat Information Systems , independent or as part of the operating area .... When will it be? When will they understand this? How many heroes do you need posthumously? ... Everything is there! When will these degenees make a normal system? And so it is everywhere! Already 15 years have passed, but nothing! Glory to Gerasimov and others ...... there.

          Perhaps, since 70 thousand is really an export price. In the domestic market, the cost is less.
          Z.Y. Because of such differences in value, they also consider GDP with PPPs.

      Krasnopol was adopted in 1986. The export price is about $ 70000. To date, they have already made the third modification of the system - Krasnopol-M2.

      Firstly, this "thing" is constantly being upgraded. Secondly, if it meets modern requirements, what is wrong with the fact that it is of Soviet design?

        nothing bad. He wrote to some unfortunate people who cry about the wasted money spent in vain.
        The shell has been in service for a long time, but is not very common in the army.

          They do not know how to use it, or rather there is no BIC or reconnaissance systems, if you want, nobody needs it, or rather, it cannot be used without these systems ... The same is with .... Armata, with .... Coalition, with SU-57 ....

          It would be funny, but somehow sad! The Stone Age instead of the Modern UAV-based system that provides real-time operation .... And they have 3 times less training time .... Full degeneratism !!!

    The most .ope is the target designation device.
    While this is a hefty thing, unmasking a fighter and making him
    noticeable and inactive target.
    And at the test site, yes, an excellent thing, these whalers with red fields.

      It is possible without a fighter. Remotely controlled.
      Well, the "hefty thing" is hefty in order to work at long ranges

    I think that a new powder based on hemp or flax was used.

    our nothing special invented

    On the contrary - invented. The notorious "Excalibur" is induced all the time, and "Krasnopol" - only in the last moments. Therefore, the duration of exposure to the target is very different. Like time for jamming ...

    It is probably not as expensive as the amers, but 25 km is not so much. But it is better than nothing.

    Well and not bad that they did the projectile without a miss, which is especially important in local wars to suppress military targets.
