Arsenal Su-57 will replenish supersonic missiles X-31

40
The newest Russian fighter Su-57 will arm the X-31 missiles, which the pilots called "supersonic death", according to News.




The military told the newspaper that work on integrating the X-31 into the fighter’s weapons is already underway. They are scheduled to be completed before the end of the year.

“The 700-kilogram rocket is mounted both on the external suspension assembly of a promising fighter and in a special compartment inside its fuselage. At the beginning of this year, weight and size models of products passed the full cycle of flight tests. After that, the suspension assemblies were refined, some structural elements and the onboard systems of the rocket were adapted, ”the material says.

The X-31 (according to the NATO codification - AS-17 Krypton) is intended for the destruction of ships (version X-31А) and radar stations of the air defense systems (X-31П). Its length is about 5 m, speed - 3600 km / h. Able to hit targets at a distance of 250 km (X-31A - a little more than 150 km). It can easily change the flight path. Previously, the X-31 was adapted for use from MiG-29KR / KUBR, Su-30CM and Su-35 aircraft.

X-31 has proven itself very well. Probably, it would be unfair to exclude her from the arsenal of the fifth generation fighter. The missile is capable of striking a destroyer with a penetrating type of warhead directly into the board or with a high-explosive fragmentation charge while flying over the ship. Impacts can be applied in any meteorological conditions, when the sea is rough with 4 – 5 points and actively counteracting the enemy’s electronic warfare and air defense weapons,
told military historian Alexei Leonkov.

            First movie x32 is not in service. Under this rocket we have for the whole YES 3 sides, not enough, do you think?
            Secondly, the dagger is also on pilot combat duty, in one of the garrisons in the Southern Military District (as the Russian Defense Ministry itself states). Given that in the South-Eastern Military District we have only one place Mig31, and specifically in the GLITs in Akhtubinsk, and there are 3 to 5 sides, I’ll assume that this complex is also undergoing tests and in sufficient quantities there are no missiles themselves or converted carriers under them. (in any case, I was interested in odnokan, exploiting mig31, my guesses are correct)
            And thirdly, this is our good old x22 voiced by you. Despite the declared characteristics of 350 km (this is x22n), the real launch range of this rocket is a little more than the same x31, although of course it is much worse for AUG than x31, but again, the problem is again in the media. There are very, very few of them now, to take away conditionally serviceable boards and short stories that bullet raw x32 and generally sadness. So betting on a dying YES is not worth it.

        new versions have 250km, or 280, but it's still small against the SM-6
        there is hope for the stealth Su-57.
        maybe at such ranges they won’t detect it.

        It is an adequate range for this missile. About "destroy the destroyer" - these are sweet dreams: warheads are rather weak. But warheads are sufficient against a corvette or patrol ship. Corvettes, as a rule, have only self-defense air defense, therefore launch can be performed outside the ship's air defense. In addition, the RCC attack is carried out, as a rule, from a jump when the carrier aircraft briefly rises to the surface of the earth in order to detect the target with the radar and enter the coordinates of the target and its exchange rate parameters into the GOS missiles. Then it is possible to launch anti-ship missiles and again descend to the ground beyond the radar visibility of the attacked ship.

      rocket can be hung at least on the PO-2
      the question is in the effectiveness of the application
      a missile has a range of 700 km, but how can an aircraft at such a range provide target designation?
      After all, the very meaning of using the X-31 is that there should be target designation, but in reality it is unlikely to be issued beyond 150 km and what for then such a missile?

    The missile is good, the enemy does not have farther than 180km, only the big one is enough, which would be enough to keep within 400 kg. Starting such a powerful engine and the torch from it can unmask the aircraft, which is critical for the Su-57.

      here the problem is that the mattresses already have sm-6 with a range of more than 400 km, with which it can beat over-the-horizon targets.
      in other words, we need a Su-57 in MA, because conventional planes (Su-57 are still stealth) may not reach the launch distance.

          A lot depends on the EPR of the rocket, but the radio signature still suffers. It’s only possible to place it inside, but it’s a maximum of one missile and not the fact that there will be a lot of space for other weapons - for those de RVV-AE

        If on Su 30 they lead to the state of P 800, then by the launch range they will double their air defense system.

          will not block - on such ranges Onyx will be forced to fly along a high-altitude trajectory. For a long time, directly, without maneuvering. He won’t even understand that he was shot down

            this is for all RCCs except possibly X-32 and the hypothetical Zircon, because they have heights higher than the reach of SM-6 in height, but lower than SM-3's lower reach threshold.
            therefore, the calculation was based on a massive salvo, which, logically, should quantitatively saturate the squadron's air defense.

    with such a range of 150 km missiles, there is no sense in such a missile. In a real combat situation, it is unlikely that the aircraft will be able to approach the launch range of the product without putting itself in great danger.

      For AUG, there are other missiles and they are on larger planes, and this one is against individual destroyers and corvettes, well, or to finish off the remains of AUG after the first strike. Look at the cost of their destroyers.

    hi X-31AD - high-speed anti-ship missile extended range,
    The product is slightly different from the basic version. Increased area of ​​rudders that received reverse sweep. Changed the shape of the wing. At one of the previous exhibitions only TTX of this modification was reported *).
    Modifications:
    * X-31A ("product 77A") - anti-ship. Designed to destroy ships with a displacement of up to 4500 tons. Adopted in 1988. It is exported to India.
    * X-31AD (X-31M) - with a launch range increased to 100 km.
    * X-31P ("product 77P") - anti-radar. Designed for the destruction of radars of medium and long range air defense systems, radars of air control systems and early warning radars. It can counteract the SAM "Patriot", "Nike-Hercules." Adopted in 1988.
    * X-31PD - with a launch range increased to 150 km. Weight increased by 100 kg. soldier

        ... This is so that the enemy gets confused. Here is another source:
        hi OJSC Tactical Missile Corporation Corporation began production of a new aviation tactical missile Kh-31AD
        The Kh-31AD high-speed aviation tactical anti-ship missile is designed to destroy combat (amphibious) surface ships and transport vessels from the composition of strike groups (convoys) or following alone. Compared to its prototype (X-31A), the missile’s power is increased by 15%. Launch range increased to 120-160 km (almost 2 times).
        Main tactical and technical characteristics:
        • maximum launch range (carrier flight parameters: (N = 15 km, M = 1,5), km - 120-160
        • range of launch heights, km - 0,1-15
        • start-up speed range (number M) - 0,65-1,5
        • guidance system - Inertial + active radar seeker
        • angle of sight of the ARGSN in the vertical plane, degree - from + 10 ° to - 20 °
        • angle of sight ARGSN in the horizontal plane, degree - up to ± 27 °
        • type of warhead - Universal mass of warhead, kg - 110
        • fuel - kerosene
        • rocket launch mass (no more), kg 715 length x diameter, m: - 5,340 x 0,360
        • meteorological conditions for use - Any with sea waves up to 4-5 points
        • carriers - aircraft Su-30MK (MKI, MKM, MK2), Su-35, MiG-29K, MiG-29KUB, MiG-35, etc.
        • average required number of missile hits for loss of combat capability of a class ship

    On SU-57 as well as on 30 and 35 as well as MIGI 29 and 35 they put X-31AD and a longer-range radiation anti-ship missile. It is by no means intended to deal with aircraft carriers, for this there is an X-32 and a product 715 for TU-22M3, its targets are small boats and ships such as frigates and destroyers
    The average required number of hits of the Kh-31AD missile for hitting a destroyer target is 2, for a missile boat target it is 1.


    On the basis of the RCC X-31A, the Zvezda-Strela enterprise created the M-31 target missile. This product was the first Russian aircraft missile sold in the United States. The M-31 won a tender organized by the command of the United States ILC and in 1996, purchases were made through Boeing. Their cost amounted to 4,7 million dollars.

    The tests took place at the range of the US Marine Corps Point Mugu, and were carried out on board an F-4J Phantom II aircraft equipped with a Soviet-made AKU-58 ejection device. The first launch was carried out at an altitude of 300 m, then the UR dropped to 20 m, and passed, maneuvering, about 30 km, after which the tracking radar was lost. According to reports, not one of the missiles of the first batch was shot down. Next, the ILC purchased two more batches of targets. According to the representative of the Zvezda-Strela company, their tests were already held in secrecy and the company not only could not send its specialists to the American training ground, but also did not receive specific information on the test results. In his opinion, the Americans do not yet have effective protection against supersonic small-sized anti-ship missiles.

    Gentlemen are good! You are dramatic. In order to understand why RCC with a range of less than 200 km is needed, it’s enough to realize that there are fleets in the world, besides the US, which also need to be fired at. A conflict directly with the United States will become nuclear, and aircraft carriers will have to be drowned with completely different weapons.

Hephaestus is preparing in the so-called second version, but so far it is creaking, and the short story is such a purely rocket version, when installing this complex, part of the bomber equipment is removed, which does not allow using the aircraft as a bomber. Such a problematic modernization. The military does not like it, so the novel was buried, they are waiting for hephaestus2, but until it arrives ... until the rocket is brought to mind with hephaestus ..... In general, this will be delayed for a year

    Unification, standardization and modernization is an American approach, the Soviet approach is to “rivet” its own complex of guided weapons for each new aircraft. I think this is a consequence of competition between the design bureau and research institutes in our military-industrial complex. As an example: the current confrontation of the Tula KBP and the Special Design Bureau of Engineering (Kurgan). As a result, either a combat module with Cornets from KBP, or with a 57-mm cannon and without Cornets.

      Yes, there is enough genius for unique cruise missiles with a nuclear engine, and there is no way to use the long-sleeved MIL-STD-1553 from the backward Americans. Be sure to individually adapt each product to each media. For some money, as an example - KAB-500S.
