Cliff coastal missile system in Crimea may be re-equipped with new missiles

The modernization of the Utes cliff coastal missile complex (DBK) in Crimea is quite possible, Reutovskoye NPO Mashinostroeniya is ready to carry out work to improve the complex, TASS reports with reference to the Director General - General Designer of the enterprise Alexander Leonov.


We have carried out the restoration of Utes cliff, and now we are constantly engaged in maintaining the complex in working condition. As for the re-equipment, it all depends on the plans of the Ministry of Defense. When such a task is set for us, NPO Mashinostroeniya will fulfill it

- he said.

Leonov said earlier that after the restoration of the complex, the issue of re-equipping the Utes rocket launcher with other missiles was considered, but a final decision on this has not yet been made.

The Cliff coastal missile system (during the years of the USSR, Object-100, or “weaving”) was created in 1957 in the area of ​​Cape Ayia. The complex, consisting of two divisions, handed over to the Ukrainian Navy after the collapse of the USSR, fell into decay: one division was mothballed, the second completely fell into the sky. Restoration work began in 2014 immediately after the reunification of the peninsula with Russia. Cliff’s readiness to protect the Crimean coast was confirmed by successful missile launches during the exercises.

The Utes rocket complex created in Soviet times is equipped with P-35 cruise anti-ship missiles with a firing range of up to 300 km, and since 1982 a modification of this missile with an increased Progress range. However, these missiles are already outdated and the question arose about the need to re-equip the complex with modern weapons.

The flight range of the anti-ship missile Progress is up to 460 km. The Cliff complex is also used to launch target missiles.

      They have good range, it’s bad that they are sound, without maneuvering an easy target for enemy air defenses, it’s necessary to change uniquely otherwise they will be targets not only for our warriors but also for the warriors of the enemy

          The fact that this is an aviation complex. Then it’s Zircon, but it’s necessary to change the launchers - instead of installing double-barreled vertical shafts, it’s not a fact that it’s possible to do it normally - the object is ground for other equipment.
          "Ball" to shove there? So there the missiles have a shorter range - this will be a step back.
          KMK is better to modernize Redut’s missiles, it’s still being removed from service and it’s more rational than letting them go, there’s such big logs that you can’t adapt them anyway.
          Just hellish fucking.

            Yes, there is no particular technical difficulty with the alteration, on the contrary, the system will be simplified. Putting the PUs from Onyx or Zircon onto the rail carriage and rolling it out on rails from under the mountains through the tunnel to the launch pad is much easier than operating the complex in its present form. And ammunition will increase by a multiple - from 4 to 6 missiles in containers can be placed on one launcher. And prelaunch preparation will be simplified.
            It is simply foolish to use such a grandiose complex with anti-nuclear defense and an autonomous survival system to launch air targets or completely outdated missiles on ships. Indeed, in the event of a rearmament at Zircon, such complexes would become multifunctional and would be able to strike at stationary targets on land with special missiles. Warhead. Moreover, apply repeatedly, recharging under the canopy of the anti-nuclear bunker inside the mountain.
            The engineering infrastructure of such a degree of security and perfection should not be turned into museums or shelters of "stalkers" \ diggers, but should serve for the benefit of the security of the beloved Motherland.

        A new rocket is definitely not needed. There are Onyxes. Another question is how rationally invested in a stationary object with coordinates known to all. Isn’t it better to buy a mobile complex .. On the other hand, where is the mountain there is another question to go to this complex.

          Investing in the creation (!) Of a highly protected stationary complex is definitely not necessary. But to take advantage of what our wise and skillful ancestors built - God himself commanded. The complex is able to survive a nuclear strike with tactical ammunition and continue the battle. He is capable of repeating volleys many times until the ammunition is exhausted or all (!) Of its launching positions are completely disabled.
          The fact that its coordinates are known does not make it much easier to remove it from the battle (defense, I repeat, anti-nuclear, the complex is in a bunker deep in the mountains, and even the launching pads / positions themselves are covered from above by a powerful and massive retractable roof). Moreover, his positions will be reliably and layered under cover by means of air defense and combat aircraft. The Crimea, where these complexes are located, has today been turned into a powerful fortified area and it’s unlikely to be allowed to dig up the mountain with impunity today.

            Is he capable of withstanding the atomic bomb? and anti-bunker, one that deliberately goes deep before the explosion?

            When it was secret, it was one thing, but when American friends climbed and measured it up and down .. well, I don’t know. Needless to say, you are right that to upgrade existing is not a new build.

              and anti-bunker, one that deliberately goes deep before the explosion?

              So it’s not in the open field. In Crimea .
              To protect from air, especially from a bomb ... especially from anti-bunker, there are air defense systems in all their variety, including fighter aircraft and Fleet air defense systems.
              To uncover the mountain itself, it’s oh how you have to try - to break through / crush all the echelons of air defense, to get in, get in exactly with the ammunition that can do harm, irreparable harm. And there are two such complexes in the Crimea. And each has several protected launching positions.
              If you beat uphill, this is a very difficult task in the conditions of the Crimea fortified area, if on launching sites, then they are also protected, can be restored after an impact and there are several of them in each complex.
              You understand, when the exchange of nuclear strikes begins, the airbases and missile bases of the enemy are carried out in the first place by all cash. And this is a radius of at least 2500 km at the first exchange, and long-range aviation will increase the depth of stripping even more. In such conditions, a highly protected object is much more likely to survive and continue combat work than, say, a mobile one, which also has basing places and reserve positions known to the enemy. And in real life - whoever survives will continue the war. Until victory or to its glorious end.
              And of course you need to have everything, acquire and use it in a complex - stationary highly protected, mobile unpaved, sea and air. And all for the sake of security and victory in a very likely war.
              Such is modern life.

          And how to recharge these UVP? In combat conditions?
          Outside? Tighten the crane, vehicles? And access roads and shunting areas are provided there?
          Isn’t it easier and more reliable to roll PUs on rail carts from the depths of the mountain? They fired, rolled, rearmament and again rolled out for a volley. The entire ammunition in the depths of the mountain under reliable protection even against nuclear weapons, and at the launcher on the rail cart you can place from 4 to 6 and even 8 launch containers of at least Onyx and Zirconov.
          And such a complex will be able to strike not only against ships, but also against ground targets.
          Repeatedly.
          Recharging in the depths of the mountain, waiting for another blow there and rolling out the launcher to that launch pad / position that has not suffered or is already brought into combat readiness after the strike.
          And all this under the reliable cover of air defense systems and basic aviation of the Crimea fortified area.
          On the launch pad, in fact, only rails for rolling out the cart with PU are needed. If the site is damaged, it will be necessary to restore a small rail section and free the site from debris. While one site is being restored after a strike, volleys are made from surviving and combat-ready platforms. And so on until the BC is completely exhausted, all launching sites are disabled (with the impossibility of restoration), or until the final victory. At the same time, all internal communications of the complex have every chance to survive / survive, even in full conditions, including nuclear war, because the nuclear weapons can withstand its designs - for this they were created. hi

      The complex included: MRSC-1 (Success-U), Mys radar with the Password identification system, control system, launchers, P-35 missiles, and a complex of ground-based equipment. The Utes control system was created at NII-303, and the mid-flight turbojet rocket engine was developed at OKB-300. At Cape Aia, the second division of the 1964nd Special Operations Division was the first to retool in 362. The main technical solutions for the Utes complex differed significantly from those previously implemented for the Strela complex, the launchers of which were extended horizontally from the rock adits. For Utes, rotary two-container units with a mass of more than 30 tons were adopted, which were located in mines with a depth of 20 m, and before launch they were raised to a height of 6 m above the surface. Immediately before the launch, the containers with missiles were displayed at an angle of 15 °. All the main facilities of the complexes were located in reinforced concrete structures buried in rocky soil. In them, during the prelaunch process, missiles were checked and refueled. In the process of an engine race, immediately before launch, directly at the launcher (as in the ship’s SM-70), rocket refueling was carried out, which

    I wonder what kind of missiles rearm? I look at the configuration of the P-35, P-500, P-1000, almost identical. I think the P-1000 is the most suitable option. Although if you think about it, you can dismantle the old launcher and put the launcher of the vertical start of the UKKS. Moreover, the installation is lifting, and on top of the armor plate is closed. In general, I think, there will be many variations on this subject ... smile

      The problem is that the P-1000 RCC Volcano is no longer produced. Unless they deliver the RCC Onyx-M with a range of 800 km, it is the P-800. The launcher can be set identical to the one that are on the coastal anti-ship complex Bastion.

    It is logical to put universal PU there. Like the one on the ships. And outfit depending on the situation. Gauges are now possible too. Contract kayuk. In essence, this complex is like a demonstration of a flag. His vitality against a strong opponent is near-zero. But he can add to the atmosphere like Iskander in Kaliningrad. Muscle sparkle. So you need to make it as versatile as possible.

    KMK is better to modernize Redut’s missiles, it’s still being removed from service and it’s more rational than letting them go, there’s such big logs that you can’t adapt them anyway.

    And how much will this upgrade result in TWO launchers? The rockets will just go gold

    A new rocket is definitely not needed. There are Onyxes. Another question is how rationally invested in a stationary object with coordinates known to all. Isn’t it better to buy a mobile complex .. On the other hand, where is the mountain there is another question to go to this complex.

    This facility (division) is part of the 15th Coastal Missile Brigade. You can make the third division of this brigade using the Bastion stationary complex. Alteration will be required, of course, but still better if the nomenclature of the missile brigade decreases

    So there’s a suitable one .. Onyx-M ... Range 800 km ... Just pulls ..

    Not yet. Development has only recently begun.

    The problem is that the P-1000 RCC Volcano is no longer produced. Unless they deliver the RCC Onyx-M with a range of 800 km, it is the P-800. The launcher can be set identical to the one that are on the coastal anti-ship complex Bastion.

    The P-800 index belongs to the Onyx 3K55 complex. Onyx-M missiles are not there yet. Only last year, work began on this option and when it will be ready - HZ. It is possible that Zircon will be put into service earlier than Onyx-M will be brought to the series

    An even bigger problem with the starting engines ((((. As you can see in the video, the starter falls off and the marching turns on. The new missiles do not have it, it seems))))

    Who doesn’t? Onyx, Caliber, or the promising Zircon? everyone has

    Quote: meandr51
    It is not clear from the article whether the canned complex will be modernized or both? I was on the ruined a couple of years ago. It’s easier to build a new one ...

    You yourself answered the question. There is no sense in restoring the ruins. But the "current" - it can be upgraded. Make either a stationary complex "Bastion-S" or really use the vertical 3C-14

    The main thing is accuracy. And the approach to the goal on hypersound. Other gifts can cover Bulgaria.

    But besides hypersound - can you imagine anything else? For example a supersonic rocket? Varna is 470 km, Istanbul is 530 km.
    Zircon should start, accelerate to a speed of 9M, and climb to a height of 40 km. How much time will it take? Half a minute, a minute? Then flight for 1-2 minutes, diving with braking. Is it cheaper to use something cheaper than such an expensive rocket ???

    As far as I know, the Dagger has a direct-flow hyper-jet engine, why do you think it starts with the MIG-31, you need acceleration for the engine to work, and here is a stationary complex

    Unfortunately, I must say that you do not know. The "Dagger" has the usual rocket engineand not some ramjet hyper jet engine. At least the name of the engine would be spelled correctly - ramjet hypersonic jet engine

    Quote: Warrior-80
    They have good range, it’s bad that they are sound, without maneuvering an easy target for enemy air defenses, it’s necessary to change uniquely otherwise they will be targets not only for our warriors but also for the warriors of the enemy

    What kind of missile is subsonic and without maneuvering? Really 3M44 "Progress", which was on the "Cliff" ??? Is the speed of 1250 km / h already subsonic?

    There was progress, even Vika will tell you, but 1250 is conditional, the speed of sound depends on the medium, ideally 1200 with a penny.

    What did I write? What was there something else standing there? First there was the P-35 complex, then the P-10 Progress complex.
    The speed of sound depends on both temperature and altitude. But in any case, the speed of "Progress" was supersonic, albeit only slightly more than 1M

    Quote: lvov_aleksey
    Hello everyone, speed depends on the medium, but in theory 1235 km / h.

    In the calculations, a standard atmosphere is used. And there, at a height of 0 and a temperature of 15 ° C, the speed of sound is 340,3 m / s, which is 1225 km / h.
