Thunderstorm Helicopters: Tunguska is back in service

49
The upgraded 2S6M1 Tunguska anti-aircraft self-propelled gun will continue to be a thunderstorm for potential enemy helicopters. The introduction of a thermal imaging sight will allow the combat vehicle to see well at any time of the day and effectively accompany tank and motorized rifle units, said military expert, editor-in-chief of Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine, Colonel Viktor Murakhovsky.


Thunderstorm Helicopters: Tunguska is back in service


The complex, classified since its inception and mentioned only after the 1991 Gulf War of the year, still has no direct analogues abroad.

The very appearance of such a technique is considered by many to be a breakthrough in military air defense, because it was possible to combine both missile and artillery weapons in one machine.

"Tunguska" can act in the defense and offensive, directly behind the battle line of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles.

Rocket armament of the complex allows you to hit targets at a distance of 10 km and at an altitude of 15 to 3500 meters. At a closer distance - to 4000 - “Tunguska” attacks targets with two double-barreled automatic guns of caliber 30 mm, which have a firing rate of up to 5000 rounds per minute. Ammunition is 8 missiles and 1904 projectile.

"Tunguska M1" is equipped with the latest sight with a thermal imaging channel and the possibility of tracking air targets.
The speed of the car on the highway - to 70 km / h, on a dirt road - to 40 km / h. The curb weight of self-propelled - about 34 t, crew - 4 person.

    Cool are our short-range air defense systems. There is one drawback. We need a shell for remote artillery shells with remote detonation to their guns. To make small-sized targets better crumble.

          Oh-ho-ho, but everything needs to be restored, I don’t presume to list sales! Just every day past such as a grill, an industrial cluster, I drive and know of course what works there and what doesn't! About my beloved, the REA plant, I’ll say - nothing works there, they were stolen at the counter, at the shops. At the industrial zone, some percent. at 15 - 25 loaded. They work. but very limited.
          Shaw, compradors are not necessary for fat-bones, they have overwhelming sales of AEROFLOT all offshore, although they earn a lot here.
          Until the authorities put things in order, or rather, IF they put them in order, we will drag ourselves in the tail of progress!

                Now it can no longer be nationally oriented. Even the yelling about batting by the British is bullshit. There is Total / VlakRok / Vangvard. They will invest anyone in whatever they have to. And no one is digging, but digging is banging.

                  There are rules that are set not only by transnational corporations. While they are trying to comply. Politicians would sell everything and everything, but so far they are forced to play by the rules.
                  All this is conditional and the rules written by fat belts are not for the people, all the same, our oligarchy is generally set up only for its interests and does not want to observe ANY rules.

              Of course, public cheeks will be puffed up, frowning eyebrows .... they will put some sales !!! And then what? One hope, the self-preservation instinct will work? And then, if the people begin to cove!

      "Derivation of air defense" with a 57mm cannon already has a guided projectile (not only detonation but also trajectory).

        It remains only to solve the unsolvable problem of hitting targets in the semi-automatic mode, flying at a speed of about 1000 km / h. In the 1950s they tried - it didn’t work. I had to come up with homing missiles.

        Shells with remote detonation before were, controlled identity is not news. We have this piece goods and "gold", but for the small caliber and even to the rate of fire, it’s really not clear, but I doubt that it’s real for the battle. Experimental samples do not count; we can create anything there! And mass production ???

              There is a 40 mm gun. The price is no longer significant due to the massive transition from mechanical fuses (clockwork) to electronic, with the possibility of programming at the exit from the barrel. EW systems work on this factor, undermining shells on approach.

      Well, the naval has such a shell, actually. And how do you imagine changing the type of ammunition in battle? (Ammunition, by the way, is commendable - 1904 shells!) BUT they are in the tape. On naval automatic guns revolving cellars, well, and how do you put reloading on different tapes into the tower? If you know, tell me seriously.

      In caliber 30 mm?
      I don’t think so, but here’s another mode for SOTSK to see above 3.5 km - yes, it is necessary. After all, while this ridiculous figure is max. the damage height of 3.5 km is due precisely to the capabilities of the detection station

        Lenin at the beginning of the 20th century proved that imperialism with constant wars is a natural turn of the development of capitalism. Take a look at the news feeds - wars flare up around one after another. A new major imperialist war will break out soon. Capitalism cannot exist without war. This is an axiom.

    So the SAM "Tunguska-M" remembered! So, it was not for nothing that I recently regretted that the Tunguska disappeared somewhere! The "Tunguska-M1" modification uses the 9М311-1М (?) Missile with technical characteristics: N.D ..- to 10 km;. D.V.-. 3.5 km ...... But not everyone knows that there is a modification of 9M311-1 with N.D.-10 km; D.V.-6 km (!) ....

      There is one drawback - on it to hell with all vulnerable stray. From rockets to sights, etc. As a result, all equipment for air defense (the so-called "Afghan") was removed from Shilok so that expensive electronics would not go bad. And the armor is still rather symbolic. /
      In general, nailing with a microscope is possible, but expensive.
