ZRPK "Shell-S" of the Khmeimim air base intercepted a small drone


On Monday, the Russian Pantsir-S air defense system of the Khmeimim air base spotted and destroyed an unidentified small-sized drone approaching the territory of a Russian military base from the Mediterranean Sea. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.


According to the military, the air defense facilities of the base at nightfall discovered a "small unmanned aerial vehicle" approaching the Russian military base from the north-eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea. The drone was not identified.

Missile armament of the anti-aircraft missile-cannon system "Shell-S" of the Russian air base, the air target at a distance from the air base is destroyed. No injuries or material damage

- stated in the Ministry of Defense, adding that the last attempt to attack the Khmeimim airbase with the help of drones was made on January 19. The air base is operating normally.

Recall that earlier the Western media announced the inability of the Russian Pantsir-S air defense missile systems to detect and hit small targets such as drones.

    The carapace is a wonderful machine.
    But!
    Every launch is very expensive ...
    Although cheaper than the Torah.
    Well, in general, money in this case should be considered not by the cost of missiles, but by the cost of eliminating possible damage and, God forbid, the victims.
    Then it will not be expensive.
    One ago, I remember, the Su-34 was damaged. I think a couple of three missiles and it would not be a pity.

            And what, they were noted in Syria? I doubt it.
            But there are some doubts. Imagine .., the barmalei, on their knees, will rivet simple UAVs worth $ 2 and stupidly launch them towards our base. And we will shoot them with missiles worth $ 200. After 5 years, they will strip us to the skin. Or maybe earlier. Everything will depend on the performance of the barmalei.

              For 2 bucks a drone does not happen. If you figure out only the key components (motor, battery, autopilot, GPS, compass, baroder, regulator, two servos) - then in the most budget version, just 200 bucks will come close. And it will be a "kamikaze", without any feedback. Plus, the cost of manufacturing the aircraft from local plywood and the fee for the dude who will collect, configure and program all this.

          Well said. Against this background, for some reason, the “Shell” intercepted Turkish missiles during the shelling of Syrian positions by multiple launch rocket systems. So, it was not possible to intercept only four missiles, but they also caused damage, although not significant .. Therefore, no Turks of victorious reports on the destruction of the SAA. According to the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria, on February 3, Turkey launched a large-scale missile attack to clean up the territory and promote the Turkish military. But this operation completely failed.























































































































































































































          According to the Syrian military, thanks to the placement of the Pantsir-S air defense missile defense system in the north-eastern part of Syria, it was possible to almost completely repel the attack. The “Shell-C1” complex intercepts 40 of 44 missiles launched by Turkey. Thanks to this, no one was hurt, and only small material damage from missed 4 missiles was recorded. Effective air defense allowed stopping the advance of the Turkish military towards Idlib. At the same time, the Turkish Minister of Defense, Hulusi Akara, reported on the successful operation and the significant damage to the Syrian Army, although he did not give specific figures.

          Experts say that such a report on achievements is understandable, Turkey simply cannot recognize the failure, and therefore spreads false information.

            Has it started so many empty lines? On business now. I didn’t hear if they tried EW Mercury BM in Syria? Just our case with the multiple launch rocket system. The fact that the “Shell” worked like that is above all praise, but 4 pcs. broke through, and this is a danger to the soldiers of the Syrian army.

          Anti-aircraft fire is the most difficult task in artillery.
          They taught me this. Just on the S-60 57mm. VERY everything is complicated there! Highly!
          And shells with remote detonation of money cost ... good and you need to shoot the queue and the probability of getting low.

            For manual calculation, of course, it is difficult. Play the program, then the whole calculation is the seeds. It would seem: what can be opposed to high-precision aviation weapons (missiles, adjustable bombs)? And all this is terribly expensive, and the calculations for bombing with conventional ammunition are in no way easier than is illustrated here with 57 mm artillery ... "The current and retired military, analysts are surprised that the Russian aviation in Syria strikes at militants using old aircraft and ammunition The main work is being done by time-tested Su-24 bombers and Su-25 attack aircraft, dropping Soviet conventional high-explosive and concrete-bombing bombs ... However, the fact that old planes drop old bombs right on target is terrifying for Western experts .. The specialized computational subsystem (SVP-24) analyzes data on the aircraft’s position and target, atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction, dozens of other parameters and gives an optimal point of bomb detonation.The technology works so well that ammunition deviates from targets from a height of six kilometers four meters. " As for artillery with programmable shells, it’s necessary to work, and the result will be.

              No problem.
              Here are just the INITIAL data from where to get?
              The ball probe is launched and removes the incision in height. At different heights, different densities and air temperatures, humidity and wind through the layers can blow in different directions.
              Determining the speed of a parameter and the course of a target ...
              All this can make a mistake of tens of meters. And gives.
              It is practically IMPOSSIBLE to hit a plane with one shell. Let him at least a hundred times with remote detonation.
              By the way, 100mm shells (KS-19 cannon) EVERYTHING with remote detonation and for some reason I didn’t hear that they covered the sky somewhere. In height, by the way, they shoot at 10 km.

                It's about the Shell, isn't it? The caliber of the gun is small, the height for such a gun is also. If something is wrong in the source data, the program automatically makes corrections using the data of the radio-optical measuring instruments of the complex. I do not see, respectively, problems with other art systems of a larger caliber, if they work in conjunction with measuring instruments. Well, yes, the first shell by. The system corrected itself, and the second - to the target ... I wanted to find out here about the Navy artillery for air targets, on the ship AK-100, AK-130, apparently, they work like that.

      The Shell is the cheapest missile launch. Missile without seeker. Cheaper only with a gun. And then the correction must be made on the number of spent shells.

        That's just the munition for the gun and will be more expensive!
        After all, what is a NURS (just a rocket for a shell)?
        A stamped shell-shell (it can even be cardboard in principle), in the head part an explosive charge with a simple fuse (with a remote more expensive (with a seeker much more expensive)) with striking elements, the rest is occupied by solid fuel RD, stabilizers are riveted.

          And how do you imagine the work of the GOS (albeit expensive) on the NURS? That is, the head is "by itself", and the solid fuel NURS - to itself. The abbreviation "NURS" is an unguided missile ... With all that you have listed for a NURS, a projectile with the same kit will be cheaper! In addition, the projectile is sent to the calculated lead point, and with NURS in this case, trouble (while it accelerates, until it reaches). For example, NAR-s (aviation analogues of NURS-s) are launched at a distance of up to 2 km. Further - you will not get, fly away "in milk". If you properly unwind along the longitudinal axis, then yes, you’ll get somewhere else. The shell during acceleration in the barrel just has the property of promotion, and the speed can be reported almost any (depends on the length of the barrel and acceleration charge).

    Syria Watan reported that government forces managed to drive terrorists out of Tarnaba and Nairab by cutting off the M4 Latakia-Aleppo motorway and cutting off terrorists in Serakiba from reinforcements from Jisr al-Shugur. There are fierce battles along the front line, SAA artillery strikes at militant positions near the settlements of Kumeinas, Al-Mastum, Serakib, Afs, Binnish and Ariha in Idlib. Currently, CAA is located 8 km from the provincial capital, the city of Idlib, a Twitter source (@islamicworldupd) notes.

    Recall that earlier the Western media announced the inability of the Russian Pantsir-S air defense missile systems to detect and hit small targets such as drones.

    Unmanned aerial vehicles were originally one of the types of targets that the Carapace had to fight against. At the time of the creation of the complex, these were quite large and high-speed targets of an airplane type. Then the drones became small-sized, with a small effective scattering area, flying at low speeds. The vulnerability of all radar systems is just work on such small low-speed targets. When they go at low speeds and heights against the background of strong reflections from the earth's surface, the target detection station becomes clogged. This is a very difficult problem however, the "Shell" copes with it. (TASS interview with Valery Slugin, chief designer of the Pantsir-S ZRPK. 29.01.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX)

    The skill of calculations and the quality of the "Shell" grows as it is successfully operated. Pleases. You can’t replace the experience of combat use with any training ground.

    ZRPK "Shell-S" of the Khmeimim air base intercepted a small drone

    Systems work ... in the photo you can see that the paint has already peeled off the launchers! Everything is fine.

    previously, Western media claimed the inability of the Russian Pantsir-S air defense missile defense system to detect and hit small targets such as drones
    The Western media managed to say a lot of things about Russian weapons even in the last year. Yes, why go so far? On the VO website, "experts" from Israel as soon as they did not jest over Russian air defense systems and, in particular, in Syria. And how many UAV attacks have been repelled over the years, few of the Western public care about, because the main thing is to shout something about "imperfection," "low combat capabilities," etc.

    Still to trace where from the Mediterranean Sea the drone was launched and destroy a terrorist object!

    So the answer to the start-ups is when it will be to repulse the hunt?

    And what if the Russian liberal?

    If Chubais, then the whole country the next day will not work!

    Better, of course, the Chubas brothers. You can celebrate a week.

    “Intercepted” - this is not clear.

      Just everything is clear. In the terminology of the air defense forces, “intercepting an aircraft” means knocking it down or forcing it to land in the required place. It is in our mass media that the "young ladies" practice different words, sometimes not understanding what they mean on military slang and often confuse "rapprochement" (with the aim of driving away, warning, interfering, watching, finding out their affiliation, etc.) with " intercept".

    I am proud of our rocket science, and on the price bill, I want to see documents with a seal and a signature - ours and the iron dome, you can’t talk about star-striped, but you can throw here too
