In the United States will present a promising projectile XM1113, using rocket technology

40
General Dynamics is going to introduce an extended-range projectile using rocket technology. This is due to happen at the US Army Association Congress (AUSA) in Washington.




In Washington, at the Congress of the United States Army Association (AUSA), one of the largest forums on land warfare in the world, General Dynamics is going to present its new product - an extended-range active-rocket projectile XM1113 using rocket technologies. Three business units of the corporation will be present at both the annual event and the AUSA 2019 exhibition to demonstrate innovative technologies that, in the future, should ensure the successful conduct of multi-domain operations of the US Army.

The XM1113 uses the XM654 enhanced reactive propelling charge. It should allow a new artillery shell to hit a target at a distance of 40 km, being fired from existing 155-mm howitzers, and achieve a range of 65-70 km for promising M777 ER, cannons with an extended barrel. The range of these shells is 30% higher than the range of M549A1 shells.


The new projectile should receive a homing system based on GPS navigation, which will allow it to deliver targeted attacks on stationary objects with previously known coordinates. The traditional explosive, TNT, which is used in typical artillery shells, has also been replaced with a more “safe” and less explosive one, which is less sensitive to external factors. If the convoy with new ammunition falls under fire, the probability that the shells detonate will be significantly less.

XM1113 combines the properties of active and rockets. The initial velocity for such an ammunition is reported by the gases generated from the combustion of the propellant charge - in this case XM654 - in the gun’s chamber. At a certain moment, a jet engine starts to work on the trajectory - it gives the flying projectile extra speed.

Active rockets are also used in the Russian army. In particular, such shells are used for self-propelled guns 2С7 "Peony" caliber 203 mm.

        Well, something you need to write here about the development of the United States for us Lapotnikov .. hehe
        I’m already talking about the development of the USA and Israel, I know everything (they hammer it every day) .. But about our little things or with irony. soldier

          So I don’t worry too much. This commentator above is worried that the projectile will turn out expensive.
          If you don’t want to pay for your samples, you will pay for strangers, and after you get them on the head.

          Yes, I do not mind again. Moreover, you rolled out such a killer argument. Ready to sit on bread and salt.
          I don’t know about pregnant pioneers. Why are they pregnant? Who did it?

            This is about wrestlers and employees of psychological operations centers, who, when any information about creative activities in Russia appears - for example, they built a temple, a ship, a new rocket launched, etc., they write "it would be better to distribute to pensioners and disabled people with children", in various variations ... This section of the training manual has set the teeth on edge already so much that it has long turned into a meme.

            When you write the same thing, you force people to unambiguously attribute you to a certain category of network users.

        Compare the price with them and ours.

        The development of the Compass design bureau allows not only creating “smart” ammunition from scratch, but also upgrading the shells already in stock. The cost of remaking a basic artillery ammunition into a managed one will be about $ 1000. For comparison, one “smart” 155-mm Excalibur shell costs the US military budget $ 80 000.
        The latest self-propelled howitzer 2С35 "Coalition-SV" was developed in the period from 2002 to 2013 in the Central Research Institute "Petrel". Prototype self-propelled guns "Coalition" on tracked chassis were first shown last year at the Moscow parade in honor of the 70 anniversary of Victory. The self-propelled howitzer is equipped with a rifled 152-mm gun 2A88, capable of hitting targets at a distance of 70 km.

          Well, yes, an old article walks quite on the Internet for quite a while, 2011 found the first year, maybe it came out earlier. That de we will fill up the Russian army with analogues of escalibur at ridiculous prices. So then 8 years have passed, you may ask. Where are the shells Karl!

          We in Russia love to compare incomparable. They will show not even a prototype, but a cartoon and we are already "And everything is better, cheaper, more powerful!"

      it’s all the same a missile, moreover, according to the JPS, it will fly to nowhere without speaking about the unsteadiness of military targets, it’s in Europe with such a range you can press the country in the world with your fingernail, it’s no way the same BUK will stupidly leave from such a shot in time

Either the Girojet pistol "using rocket technology" is put together, from which it does not even come out to shoot, then the shells to the Zumvolts.

              57 km he has a range of escaliburi, just from Panzerhaubitz 2000. and the price of the stake is 120.000 euros apiece. on 1 the target must be 2 escalibur .. for every fireman it’s better to let 2 me down .. the probability of getting from the first shot of 0,6-0.7 from 10. over the sea is even less range. and of course where 155 mm gets, then the second one is no longer needed there. and PH-2000 a very good howitzer. we have such. very accurate gun. only the Coalition is better than her. recourse

                  Well Duc, of course ... in the sheds with ordinary iron. in order to choke on escaliburs, you first need to have them at hand, and secondly a very expensive shell, so that they would spend all sorts of nonsense. if there is a dugout with the bosses there for example or a well-camouflaged calculation position. and then it’s extremely rare, the German howitzer has very good accuracy and mobility, it casts it with iron, it doesn’t seem much .. 155 mm after all request 36 kg one shell weighs. of which, probably, 15-20 kg is hexogen, the rest is a shell and a fuse. and maybe already an octagen .. who knows. but definitely not TNT. spatter of fragments on 70 m continuous zone of destruction. here are our 5 floors, which were built during Papadopulo, with one shell, you can get from the roof to the 1 floor. that is, put the fuse on hold and it will ram all the 5 floors and explode on the 1-2 floor ... the same houses in Turkey and Italy. Well everywhere here in Porto, for example, and Spain, too. the same type, the frame is everywhere reinforced concrete and only brick walls with a belt.

                feel ph afghanistan miss accuracy reached a kilometer. the famous gray-bearded joke and fact. the price tag of a pair of shells directly approaches the OTRK simple, but if they integrate artillery defense and radar, say Armata and guns say hu23-4 that the hundreds of such bullets continue to serve as a bullet, the time to fly the projectile is enormous is minutes, many minutes and it’s clear that it flies and where already quite well for a long time.

    As always, advertising is ahead of the product itself! No one says that the projectile MAY have specific dimensions and weight for a specific system, which means that an increase in range leads to an increase in jet fuel (powder charge) at the bottom of the projectile and to a decrease in explosive (decrease in power). Now think: is it worth throwing a "grenade" at 70 km in order to blow up a stand-alone vehicle (well, with kinetic energy to penetrate an armored personnel carrier, BMP) at the cost of a limited batch of shots under 200000 euros apiece ??? It is cheaper and more accurate to attract 1 PU TR (at the same cost).

      And it’s for sure that I’m standing at work yesterday, I think it’s how a projectile turns out that kind of fool about 40 kilograms remembered how on the hands of this little kid in the army he imagined that if you add a homing head and a solid propellant engine it’s what a healthy wanderafle will turn out to be healthy ... obviously there must be some compromise and not in favor of BB ...
