The Cornet rockets are now being hit from the air?

17

Military experts were interested in a strange find that appeared near the Turkish border as a result of an air attack on militants in Syria.

According to the Serbian portal ZOKA, as a result of the shelling from the air, several missiles hit the rebels. At the place of striking at their positions, individual fragments of shells were found. The expert compared these elements with the design of whole ammunition and concluded that Cornets could be used.

"Cornet" is an anti-tank missile system created by the Tula Instrument Design Bureau. In service with the Russian army, it was adopted in 1998, after which it actively entered the ground units. This ATGM was bought by the Syrian military along with many other foreign customers.

I guess this is a Cornet, but how was it launched from the air? The Russians experienced a new drone and there was a big explosion. Many questions

- writes ZOKA.

Allegedly, the latest modifications of the launchers of the complex allow firing on the principle of "shot and forgot" by equipping the machine with a capture and tracking of the target. However, in this case, the target must be in the visibility zone of the launcher before the rocket hits.

Given that the drone can be equipped with high-resolution surveillance devices, it is really able to become the carrier of the original land ATGM, capable of effectively hitting the enemy from the air at a safe distance.

      Maybe something like "The Mordovian Bulletin" sounds funny, but the people there are good at understanding the issue.

      He made an ASSUMPTION on the basis of photos laid out by militants.
      And honestly, I would be glad if this assumption were true.

        Actually, the Corsair UAV was already shown with Competition-type ATGMs installed on it. Hanging a Cornet on it will not be difficult in essence ...

      The deeds of the Lord are inconceivable, realized through human very skillful hands! And for example to you, "Chrysanthemum"! After all, everything was like people had: a ground-based self-propelled ATGM system! But no (!) ... either someone's cockroaches did not get the dichlorvos, or someone had a helluva lot of very skillful little hands combed ... but as a result (!) ...: get the "barmaley" helicopter version "Chrysanthemums"! fellow And what is worse "Cornet"? request After all, "Chrysanthemum" and "Cornet" are often "compared"! Here are the "cornets" and do not want to lag behind!

    And what? Normal idea. Cornet is such a normal balalaika. From the air all the more.

      Would feel what to launch and launch is a technical matter. There will always be craftsmen who invent how to do this.

      Hang the same Invar under the UAV - and voila, almost an analogue of SDB. It was logical to expect something like that. As a cheaper way, you can even try backlighting from a UAV, and deliver it as a second stage on a MLRS projectile ... In principle, to combat all sorts of raptors and MANPADS, it was probably running around.

    And it would be nice. If so. Cornet is a good, powerful rocket. And when used from air, it’s a very long-range one. With a good overview. You won’t hide from such bushes. wassat

      Something caused a significant increase in firing range when used from the air? )) Maybe just an increase in the ability to launch at maximum range?
      The UAV should raise half a centner and hold out for some required time in the air, provide guidance-control, do not fall apart at launch, and return to the operator - what will be its price, size?

          Googled
          length - 4,2 m
          height - 1,2 m
          wingspan -6,5 m
          The masses are incomprehensible.
          With installed anti-tank systems - did not show... And the ATGM is not a bag of cement - it will take a lot of work to "hang"

                That is, you think that the missile from the ATGM Competition and Attack along with the UAV was simply installed there? Yes, I do not have a photo with the missiles installed on the Corsair. I have no access to the same data. Although the developer claims it is done. Yes, even if there was a photo, some would say that "this is window dressing, it cannot shoot, it will not take off, etc." ... The Orion UAV developer also claims that there is a version of the Orion strike UAV, but here is a photo that then no. At the exhibition, I asked a representative of Kronstat: "Is it true that the shock Orion was tested in Syria?" His answer was: "We do not give such information ...". Obviously, they are still being tested and there is very little information.
                What can I say) About the Kolibr missiles, the same little was known until they started shooting.

                  Yes, I believe that in its current form - just like that.

                  TPK Competition without PU - just a box with a rocket. Nearby, one could place a box with stew and a pillowcase with footcloths from the laundry room.

                  Little information, but referring to a photograph in which you saw something that is not there, but you really wanted to, and presented it as reality

                  At the exhibition, you could ask about a time machine, about a perpetual motion machine, about the ever-memorable "Novice", about fighting penguins and liquid energy dumplings, and the answer could be the same.

                    That is, all this is also done just like that, for fun? )
                    Photos and videos of the use of SU-57 missiles are also not found anywhere. Do they also do nothing on the SU-57?
                    So what did you know about Kolibra before 2015?

    Cornet must be led to the goal all the way to the goal. On land, this usually succeeds if the operator is not uncovered, acting from an ambush.
    Theoretically, a shot can also be fired from a helicopter hovering or slowly flying.
    But maybe they just shot down the hill?
