US media rated the Russian "smart" shell

38
State producer weapons concern "Tehmash" (part of Rostec) began to develop smart artillery shells caliber 152 mm, writes The National Interest.




The publication cites the words of the general director of the concern Alexander Kochkin, who said that the projectile performs most of its journey to the target along the usual ballistic trajectory, and only at the final stage (before the target) its control system is activated, which makes adjustments to the flight, thereby increasing the accuracy of hitting . The adjustment is made either by small jet engines or by means of installed wings. The CEO also noted that it is impossible to use the optical guidance system because of the large overloads caused by rotation - the picture will be blurred.

The author tries to guess how the ammunition will be aimed at the target. Usually a laser beam or GPS navigation is used for this (like the M155 Excalibur US 982-mm shell), and there are always fears that both of these methods can be blocked by the enemy, he notes.

Apparently, Russia takes a different approach. It is not excluded that the Russian designers invented a special optical system that is not afraid of the furious rotation of the projectile, the magazine believes.

Also, the publication is at a loss as to whether the projectile will be self-guided or its flight will be remotely controlled (with the help of a joystick) by the operator.

In addition, the author expressed confidence that the cost of the new Russian projectile will be lower than the cost of other guided munitions, such as Krasnopol, but much more expensive than conventional projectiles. For clarity, he cited an example from the American pricing policy: if an ordinary projectile today costs about $ 1 thousand, then the cost of the M2000 Excalibur 982 caliber of 155 mm created at the beginning of 68 is about $ XNUMX thousand.

Of course, Rostec is looking for a cheaper option, since “the Russian government has not allocated any funds for the project at all” - all work is being done at the expense of the company's internal reserves, the newspaper concludes.

            Who knows how to block a laser beam?
            I know only two ways - smoke and pointing a lot of false laser markers. But they are not effective. The smoke attenuates the battle laser well, but the guidance laser, although greatly attenuated, passes through the smoke. And against false markers, changing the wavelength of the guidance laser works, it is enough to make it different from false target designators.

              Artificial gravity will deflect the beam in any direction. Joke.
              You can block the beam only with plasticine. But seriously, you can use the coherence of the waves - it should help ... but then again, you can then calmly aim at the source of interference .. In general, plasticine is the most laughing laughing laughing

              Aerosol counteraction is aimed at weakening the aiming laser; for this, the dispersed density and particle size of the so-called "smoke" are selected.

    Infa for American media: On approaching a target, oars stick out from the projectile (on the sides) and a keel comes out from below. And inside the projectile - Petrov and Boshirov row with oars and steer the projectile towards the target. INFA is top secret !!

    it is not clear why the optical system rotates with the projectile. As if independent suspensions for compensation of rotation does not exist. And if you’re also an eccentric, then you can see while the projectile is flying, then the rotation of the optics will be reduced to almost zero.

    The laser beam can be used within line of sight (backlight), it is 3-5 km, but how do you apply it to a distance, for example, 15-20 km? In my opinion, they have not yet learned to reject it (go around the horizon). Are you mounting a laser in the ammunition itself? Here, you’ll hardly be able to meet 100 thousand dollars, and it’s unlikely that you will squeeze this device into the dimensions of the projectile. There remains a map of the area, i.e. JPP or backlight from an airplane, satellite, drone. All the same, you cannot do without a monitoring device.
