Even smarter. Will F-22 learn to ignore C-400?

72
In the United States of America decided to strengthen the combat power of the newest F-22 Raptor fighters of the country. We are talking about equipping the F-22 with advanced versions of AIM-9X and AIM 120-D smart rockets. Improved modifications of air-to-air missiles have an increased range of target damage than their predecessors. This, as noted, can allow the Raptor pilots to strike, without entering the enemy's area of ​​destruction with anti-aircraft defenses.


Even smarter. Will F-22 learn to ignore C-400?


In addition to increased range, updated missile modifications allow you to attack targets from large angles with an increased probability of hitting.

In fact, we are talking about upgrading the AIM-9X to the so-called Block II (the second generation of these aviation missiles). It is strange that the American press is only now writing about the readiness of the United States to equip the F-22 with these weapons, because back in 2016 it became known that the States were signing contracts for the supply of AIM-9X Block II to a number of foreign countries, including, for example, Poland. In fact, the deployment of these weapons in Poland can mean only one thing: an attempt to "counter" the Russian S-400 air defense system deployed in the Kaliningrad region. For Poland, an option is provided for equipping F-16 aircraft with these missiles.

What is different about upgrading the AIM 120-D rocket? An improved version of it, as stated, has additional possibilities for maneuvering and countering the capabilities of air defense systems. The missile is equipped with the latest radar guidance, which allows to increase the effectiveness of the missile.

          This is if about the Jews and the Americans can simply equip the "trident" with the usual stuffing and shoot at Afghanistan and the BV without entering the air defense zones wassat

          To achieve the goal, one or another weapon is selected, and if the aircraft builds up attacks with VZ missiles without entering the air defense zone, then this aircraft must meet long-range explosive missiles.

        What does land bombing and air-to-air missiles have to do with it? What will they shoot down? SAM S-300? This is generally from the realm of unreal fiction. If by planes, then for this they will still have to enter the air defense zone.

          In any case, the technique of birds and those who hunt them, becomes "smarter" .... such a "competition" of who is who.
          There are no non-shooting down aircraft, no rockets that shoot down everything in a row.
          Perhaps we will see the results of this "competition", but better not!

            I don’t know how you are doing there, we have good weather (good weather) - good morning Victor. After the army, I worked for a long time as a traffic controller (military commissar), albeit before 91 - but this insight is good (from the idea, further development, creation, testing, etc. along the chain.). You just can’t imagine how meticulous it was for us (ON FLIGHT Chelyabinsk), not to mention cover measures, if at what stage of the product someone makes a mistake (up to the designers) - one hell will catch her at another stage, how much I personally caught shit (tech. errors). It was all until the 90th. I’m what it is for - we were then at a level that did not allow any state to keep up with us - otherwise we would gobble up for a long time - here they still have one goal of our collapse - disinformation from the inside, and they are not capable of more - not a single one the state cannot immediately give as many minds (I'm talking about science) as the USSR - Russia. You said very well in your comment - one to one.

              I didn’t finish the service either after being sent to the reserve. We can say by profile, only on a more global scale .... I remember perfectly well how carefully we made our products from and to installation on objects. And sho is PZ, design support and responsibility for mistakes .... we all went through this, who worked for the defense industry.
              I won’t say that everything was so cloudless with us, but we could always repulse a potential adversary, real and final.
              Even now, many of the designs of the past years are being modernized quite successfully, and they are no less fearful. This is the kind of design groundwork that Soviet technology has.
              The fact that they are now trying to defame our youth is accustomed to the idea that all Soviet is sucks .... there is such a thing, I’m at war with how I can!
              Nothing, OUR cause is right and the enemy we can clean the mint forever!

            Missiles for fighters are very limited by the dimensions of this carrier itself. The same Triumphs have larger missiles and the opportunity to improve them, make them smarter, fly further, much more than the developers of smart missiles for fighters.
            It is clear that an air-to-surface missile does not need to overcome the attraction of the earth at launch, and it can already get a decent range due to the height of a flying carrier, but ... the S-400 is only the last line of defense and that missile launched from an aircraft is still it is necessary to go through complexes of short and medium range.

          Andrei, even with real technology, if you shot down a rocket and its carrier - you must firstly --- you need cofideration of systems, and this, roughly speaking, is your own alien. Missiles are not crammed with all this stuff. But only you know, you think about not just there some sort of encoded frequencies - ours think about the results --- your pissing - and where to go. Honestly, our sciences would have done everything without vases. Men are smart and not easy.

    I don't quite understand what has to do with the S-400. These missiles are air-to-air. Another thing is that they can be dangerous for our Su-35, Su-30, since the R-77 lags far behind in range. He was the first to notice, he was the first to fire without even entering the affected area, and no maneuvering combat at close distances is a modern reality.

His task is to launch the cartoon "Americans are fools against c400 suckers can do nothing", this does not require knowledge and logic.

      What does the electronic warfare and all-aspect missile "in-in" close combat have to do with it?
      And in terms of electronic warfare, the Americans have been exploiting the Growlers, Sentry, Hockey, (anti-submarine Poseidons, Orions) for a couple of decades now, and how to say, while their electronic warfare came out victorious, against our air defenses. And we must not forget about Israel, they also have a lot of their own developments.

                      Yes, less than a month has passed since the collapse of the IL-20. Right now they’ll figure out what's what, and again they will start flying and bombing. Doubt it?

                        And what have the "axes" over Syria, which, according to you, are constantly flying there ?! request Then the attack was carried out by F-16, which were 70 km west of the coast of Syria. In general, I understand you - they wrote something without hesitation, and now you get out. negative

                        conducted f-16

                        I will say more, then the GBU-39 was bombed, this is a guided bomb, with a maximum range of up to 110 km, but this does not change the essence. This is to the fact that as different KR flew, whether it be an ax, a dalla, an atomax, a French storm or something else, they will fly if they really need to destroy something, despite the presence of the S-300/400/500 / 600 ... or whatever Volodya Volfovich has already come up with ..
                        Yes, and the West will be a drummer who sits at the remote control of the air defense system, Syrians, Iranians or Russian specialists. And the case of the IL-20 showed it. You came to war, so you are ready to die .. for denyuzhku or for an idea .. in the latter, I strongly doubt it.

            And 104 pieces - this is not a flock?

            Judging by the results, a small jamb (the jamb happened with the guidance system and the PB laughing )
            It is not clear who stood up for whom, whether Krasukha for his own people, or his own for Krasukha, but the fact is fixed on the face of the planet - "they didn’t give the tiger meat !!!" (C), That is, the hatchets did not reach the goal. laughing

              hatchets have not reached the target

              It’s you, our MO, who listened to the dash, looked at the dash? Which in 3 days 4 times changed the numbers? They shot down 101 out of 104, then the digit fell to 77, then to 36, and then they generally said that something, like, was shot down, and that something (a couple of pieces) themselves fell ...
              And who to believe? Amer, who really destroyed all the declared targets or our MO, which is changed in "flight" for a couple of days.
              PS: And they examined this topic in VO ... The fact that the targets were destroyed, and those fragments that showed on the box, from 2-3 missiles, well, not from 100. In the trunk of the Lada all fit together

                In addition to our MO, which by the way is very "tenderly" presented on the air, there are other channels - my opinion is a generalization over these several months

      Yes, that's just the point, the elephant's ears pulled to a hippopotamus and said op-pa! The title of the article itself is confusing.

      Even smarter. Will F-22 learn to ignore C-400?

    The news is more about the development of countermeasures to the interception of V-V missiles. An anti-missile missile is being created with the AIM-120 base, but it comes with the NCADE code. I have not seen anything about work in the fourth block of the AIM-120 to increase maneuverability. Gas-dynamic belt? Hardly. A "sidewinder" is generally a melee missile with a range of 18 kopecks. They are trying to improve the range on it, but this is not at all AIM-9X.

    It sounds like: In the USA they will teach how to walk with bare hands against a brown bear. The only thing that remains in question is a quick and safe return after such trips ...

    I hope that Russian designers and engineers, too, will not sit back and do nothing and will soon find ways to effectively counter the updated American missiles.

    During the Second World War there was long-range artillery, machine guns, tanks, planes, and, as they say, I don’t want to hit. But they still went to the bayonet, and today they go, though not in human chains, but nonetheless. Conclusion - the technique is good, but no technique will lure a person, at least shoot for three hundred kilometers, but on the earth a person will still be the first.

    voyaka uh ....I don’t know which S-400s are real
    characteristics, but it’s easy to catch electronic warfare. The F-16 attack on Latakia, directly opposite Hmeimim, they did not notice at all.

    Not tired of trolling tongue ? Or is it a side job angry ?!

    Why does the S-400 even need to shoot down "smart" American missiles?
    When he is quite capable of shooting down carriers of these missiles at double launch range.

    I have long been refraining from commenting because there are more than them without my comments. But now could not resist. This short article is about the modernization of a long-known rocket in order to increase the chances of its carriers to survive the impact of the air defense systems of a potential enemy. And the odds are: whether it will survive or not. And the chances of С400 to counter such threats are also clear for now ... like a hedgehog in a fog.
    Everything goes according to the old scheme of the world: the means of protection are being improved. Improvements and means to overcome this protection. Something is sometimes lagging behind, something is sometimes ahead, but in general, in all the post-war time, no country has been able to achieve an overwhelming advantage in weapons systems over a country with a comparable level of development.
    The fact that every sandpiper praises its own swamp is also understandable. Everyone wants to earn money and without advertising it is difficult.
    This is how all these old non-strategic systems, including С400 and the rocket considered in the article, will show themselves in a full-scale conflict a big question. Most likely, because everything can end sooner than it comes to such a system.
