Uncontrolled Ukrainian RS-80 Oskol tested

On the Facebook page of the operator of the Ukrainian military TV Alexander Shtupun published information about tests in Ukraine of unmanaged samples aviation 80 mm rockets. This is the RS-80 Oskol rocket, which is called the "completely Ukrainian development."

The submission says that during state tests, military personnel and representatives of the State Research Institute of Testing and Certification shot down about three hundred such missiles. Missile launches were carried out from a Mi-8 helicopter in the Chernihiv region.

The note emphasizes that the components for this rocket are made by Ukrainian manufacturers.

From official materials:
The main performance characteristics of these aircraft missiles and the possibility of using this type from the Mi-8 helicopter were fully confirmed.

About when the PC-80 "Oskol" goes to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and in what volume the Defense Ministry is going to buy these aircraft missiles (and whether it is going at all), is not reported.

We will remind that earlier in Ukraine it was announced about the testing of a Ukrainian cruise missile. About trials said the Secretary of the National Security Council Alexander Turchinov. And other radical representatives of the Ukrainian authorities added that the ammunition "can be used for the de-occupation of the Donbass areas". That is, they will begin to hit the Donbas with more cruise missiles?

    ammunition "can be used to de-occupy the areas of Donbass." That is, they will also launch cruise missiles in the Donbass?

    The missile is not winged, the usual NAR 80 mm caliber ... But that’s why it was named after the Russian Oskol River? wassat

        Correctly. What are these pipes for them now? For anything, but not for water supply, all the more hot. winked

        and in the meantime, similar "pipes" are tortured in a new way in Russia - new launchers of 80 mm C-8 unguided missiles

        and they can also be used from terrestrial carriers:

      In the last paragraph everything seems to be written, it is not about "Oskol". And the Oskol River also flows in Ukraine

        And the Oskol River flows in Ukraine

        Of course. Only the source in the Kursk region. And it flows into Seversky Donets, which also originates in Russia. And the Oskol flows through the Kursk, Belgorod, Kharkov, Lugansk and Donetsk regions. From the Ukrainian there is only Kharkov ...
        Well, about the Ukrainian cruise missile Turchinov can declare as much as he wants. And in its application in the Donbass, in general, it is somehow poorly believed.

      As far as I understand, this is the most ordinary S-8 from the Ukrainian components ..., from here it’s overpowered, but only one instead of the entire S-8 line. request

    Again, "if something happens" UKrain will remain without aviation in the conflict zone in a couple of weeks. And then what to do with these "Oskols"? To heat the stoves in the dugouts?

    Got to the next ammunition depot of the era of the USSR, inherited from the Soviet Army?
    The shelf life of these missiles has long expired, so they conduct tests to assess the degree of danger for their gvintokrilіv.
    Not in vain do not show the marking of either missiles, or even boxes. For labeling immediately tells the whole truth about itself.

    - Of course, they will, without a second's hesitation.

    They made their own NURSs with guides to the Mi-8? Miracles of Ukrainian engineering and technical thought!
