US will supply Poland one division missile complex HIMARS

38
Poland will soon be armed with the American High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) rocket system. Notice of the upcoming sale of the 20 missile system M142 combat vehicles has already been submitted for approval to the US Congress. Delivery was authorized in the US State Department, the blog bmpd reports.


US will supply Poland one division missile complex HIMARS


It is reported that the estimated cost of delivery will be 655 million dollars. It will include 24 of the artillery fire control system, 20 training modules M68A2, 33 of M1151A1 HMMWV. In addition, 36 adjustable GMLRS M31 Unitary missiles with a monoblock warhead, nine adjustable GMLRS M30A1 Alternative Warhead missiles with a warhead dispersed (meaning missiles, but six-charge transport and launch modules with six missiles each), 30 operational tactical ATACMS M57 Unitary missiles with a one-piece warhead, and 20 practical LCRR missiles.

Thus, the Polish Ministry of National Defense receives one division of the HIMARS complex in a fully American configuration. This is a high mobility rocket launcher (HIMARS) M124. Previously announced plans for the partial production of this system and the missiles for it by the Polish industry could not be realized.

HIMARS - US highly mobile missile-artillery system for operational and tactical purposes, is a lightweight reactive volley fire system mounted on a wheeled chassis.

        They won’t be worn, but in advance they will create an OP specially for this artillery brigade and will keep it in a marching advantageous access. The nomination of such a brigade is 120 missiles in one salvo, so our Kaliningrad UR cannot but take into account such Polish opportunities.

        Maybe, but the missiles can be equipped with self-aiming warheads, and so, each missile can carry 14 of these. This is one thousand six hundred and eighty striking units over conditionally /// only conditionally /// our positions. Here you have six launchers.

          The 300-mm 9M55K5 missile with a warhead with cumulative fragmentation warheads (KOBE) is designed to destroy open and sheltered manpower and lightly armored military equipment. The figure shows a workover with KOBE ZBZO. Initially, there was no element at the head, indicated by a black rectangle. It was introduced to provide better knockout and dispersal of combat elements. Included in the ammunition load of the 9K58 Smerch MLRS.

          And there are 12 of them in one installation

          Weight - 800kg
          Length - 7600mm
          Mass of the head - 243kg
          Head length - 2049mm
          The number of COBEs - 646 (588) pcs.
          COBE weight - 0.24kg
          KOBE diameter - 43mm
          COBE length - 118 (128) mm
          The mass of explosives in COBE is 0.035 (0.046) kg
          The thickness of the punched homogeneous armor - 120mm (160)
          BE self-destruction time - 130-260 (not less than 200) s
          Firing range:
          maximum - 70km
          minimum - 25km

          This is not an MLRS. These are tactical ballistic missiles with inertial guidance and an effective radius of 300 km.

        The goal is of course a priority, but the system is mobile, it still needs to be discovered. I hope in the Kaliningrad region there are enough nuclear sweets for Polish non-brothers ... Already managed to create quite a few modern carriers, including hypersonic, it's time to modernize our TNW.

          How are you going to destroy a rocket brigade in a conventional fight, which is dispersed on the ground and becomes like “mushrooms in the Moscow region _". Just wondering how technically you are going to suppress these trunks. A fungus 100 km from Kaliningrad, do you want to organize?

            Usually. During launch, they scorch - any modern radar will detect such a healthy "log".
            And the fact that they are dispersed is still necessary in advance and imperceptibly, otherwise they are not the only ones who can disperse.

              These are anti-Iskander ballistic missiles. To destroy Iskander launchers. As a counter-battery fight in artillery.
              Both those and others scorch during start-up if they were disguised. It is easy to detect both from the air or from satellites.
              Here - who used to shoot.

    Some eastern NATO members resemble stupid donkeys who think that one M16 is better than the 10 Kalashnikovs. In short, they are looking for a panacea in American weapons.

    I can only applaud. Division 1 of an ineffective system (like a MLRS - an empty space, like an OTRK - a little more) for wild heaps of dead prezes - that's great. If anything, our "Tornado" is much cheaper and I would not be surprised if it turns out that for the same money it was possible to buy a division of "Tornado-U" and "Tornado-S". And they already have "Grads".

      I disagree. HIMARS is a serious OTRK with ATACMS missiles. Getting almost into a "pretty penny". And even electronic warfare won't help. ATACMS has a very advanced inertial guidance system. No GPS needed.

      buy by division "Tornado-U" and "Tornado-S"

      There are no foreign operators of Tornado-S. And ATACMS will be more interesting. 300 km versus 120, plus autonomy (inertial guidance system). Tornado depends on TSU + GLONASS. Belarusians have good MLRS, up to 200 km (Chinese missiles) and the Chinese, up to 400 km. Need to catch up .. and cassette warheads for them.

    Judging by the price tag for the acquisition of such an MLRS, this is a payment for the Pentagon's "protection" of the Poles. There is no other explanation, the price tag is too high and there are very ambiguous statements about the performance characteristics of this device
