As Olga Sokolova explained, the decision to develop a new hypersonic target missile by the designers of NPO Molniya pushed the development of rocket technology to potential opponents. The company decided not to stand still, but to offer the Ministry of Defense various variants of target rockets, since the Russian Armavir and Strizh are becoming obsolete. Against the background of new ideas, the development of the Gvozdika target missile was proposed, the development work on which is planned to be completed next year. The rocket is hypersonic and designed to test the latest Russian models weapons.

Also, the Molniya NPO is launching an R&D project on a new small-sized parachute target designed for training fighter and assault pilots aviationas well as anti-aircraft gunners. Unlike the fairly expensive target missile launched from an airplane currently in service, the new one will be launched from the ground and will cost significantly less. The target imitates a torch of nozzles of a fighter.

      The main polygons to place correctly.
      The very place near Kaliningrad, in the Crimea, well, in Cuba is possible. There the weather is favorable for testing. laughing

    "Carnation" already exists. ACS 2S3. We need to be more inventive in approaching the names.

      Clove is 2C1, as I have on my profile picture. 2C3 is Acacia.

        It’s better to call a carnation than come up with a name from the ceiling.

    The United States has an RSD which they call a target missile. So ... everyone is dancing!

    The hypersonic target is certainly powerful. A very competent approach to training, modern requirements are growing.

    Speaking of new missile designs and their delivery to the troops, it is somehow forgotten about the parallel production of target missiles. Tipo launched some old woman with the latest rocket, which is ten times higher than the old woman in terms of characteristics, knocked her down - and that’s all - everyone is happy. But it’s good to hear when the target corresponds to the level of modern missiles in the world, or even surpasses them, and with such a missile the target and the combat can be overwhelmed by installing a warhead on it. Wow.
