MANPADS "Igla-S" and "Willow" - formidable opponents of aviation


This time, the crew of the “Military Acceptance” together with the host Alexei Egorov will leave for Moscow, in Kolomna, where the closed training ground of the Engineering Design Bureau is located.


Today, this large design and scientific-production center is the only developer of portable anti-aircraft missile systems in our country. It was here, in Kolomna, the first Strela-2 MANPADS was developed, put into service in 1968 and immediately made a splash around the world. And this is not surprising, since the small-sized missile developed by Soviet designers was able to shoot down planes and helicopters, including at low altitudes, where conventional air defense systems had a "dead zone". Then appeared such systems as Strela-3, Igla, Igla-S, as well as the most advanced MANPADS Verba, surpassing all previous models in terms of characteristics and entering service only with the Russian army.

It’s Igla-S and Verba man-portable air defense systems, like formidable opponents aviation, will become the main characters of the "Military Acceptance."

Both complexes will be subjected to severe tests. From this weapons they will shoot at a ground target in the form of a shield, try to hit a drone, the most difficult target for MANPADS, "drown" Igla-S MANPADS and in this state will shoot from it. In addition, it is in this issue that the audience will see for the first time how the Gibka-S complex is being tested, which is an armored car with a missile system installed on it.

    Because they don’t fly .. and if they arrived, it’s not a fact that they will return back.
    Everything in the subject, everything in the matter.

    That's just to sell for the "hill" is not worth it .. There is a very big chance that it will fall into the wrong hands.

      Already hit they say that our attack aircraft were shot down by Soviet complexes, I will not argue, I definitely do not know. I wonder what was shot down in Afghanistan, the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack on the Bombardier E-11A aircraft of the US Air Force, and F-16s and helicopters shot down the Hussites in Yemen. And why aren’t Israeli military planes shot down in Lebanon’s airspace, from where Israel is bombing Iranian troops in Syria? There, Israeli planes are not flying at low altitude, and they can easily be shot down from MANPADS, and Lebanon has about the Iranian hesball. Or to be afraid or there are no missiles, I think the Iranian counterparts of Igla-S MANPADS are why they shot down an airplane and F-16 in Afghanistan and helicopters shot down the Hussites in Yemen, also under Iran’s control

        Because they must first be discovered, then identified, then have time to shoot))
        They appear very unexpectedly and disappear sharply

          The Hussites somehow shot down planes, maybe the Israelis are hiding behind civilian planes, and here, the point is not the skill of the pilots, but their meanness

            Nonsense all this. You can only hide behind civilian planes at a distance of up to 100 meters - the Israelis were not seen for such a thing - and indeed no one heard about it. I don’t know how the Saudis bombed, maybe they make several approaches to the target, flying at low altitude and subsonic speed (for more effective destruction of targets, I guess), but the Israelis will most likely not go on cruising territory, etc.

    Incorrect transcription “willow prick” due to the fact that the willow bends easily, and they don’t hit the needle. There is the expression “verbohlest beats to tears”, therefore not a “willow prick”, but a whip, but the needle is just an injection. The author got lost in expressions. Or am I wrong?

      They there in television generally have no idea what they are shooting about, they carry such game and show it. They say about the T-90 show the T-80, do not understand the expressions and meanings of words.
