"Javelins" for Ukraine: how APU increase anti-tank power

"Javelins" for Ukraine: how APU increase anti-tank power

The military department reported on the measures taken in 2019 to increase the anti-tank power of the armed forces units.


According to the data presented, according to the results of last year, 162 man-portable missile systems of the “Stugna” and “Corsair” models were delivered to the armed forces of the country.

Of interest is the assessment by Ukrainian experts of the combat potential of the Soviet and released already in non-dependent complexes. They complain that every third launch from the anti-tank systems made during the USSR was ineffective. The reason for this is seen in the "moral and physical obsolescence" of products.

However, analysts immediately claim that only 71% of the applications of the “Stugny-P”, adopted for service in 2011, can be considered successful.



A similar indicator for Corsair (in the army since 2017) is 84%.

Perhaps it is for this reason that the local generals have such high hopes for American products. As indicated in the report of the Ministry of Defense, last year Ukraine signed a contract providing for the supply of 10 Javelin type ATGMs and corresponding missiles.

But the high cost of the American product is able to disarm the Ukrainian army worse than militias: the price of Javelin is about $ 250 thousand, and the cost of a shot is $ 100 thousand. This is five times more expensive than Ukrainian products. As a result, along with the "overseas gingerbread" in 2019, 100 units of the Korsar and Stugna anti-tank systems were ordered.

    Successful, is it when the enemy flew away?

    And if you do not shoot and resell? In the commission of Voentorg for example? wink

      It depends on what price and in what state it will be sold. what
      And since the Javelins of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will not bring them much benefit ... after all, one must still be able to use them and apply them correctly ... with which the Ukrainian army is a big problem.
      The Javelins themselves are too much publicized ... in real combat conflicts around the world, the old good Soviet anti-tank systems and American TOUs are not of the first freshness ... they have proven their reliability ... and the Javelins are more stupid ads for Aboriginal people to calm down.

        And what can 10 pieces do? One serious fight is not enough. According to evil languages, all the "javelins" allegedly handed over to the UkrSS are located at the Yavoriv training ground, under the supervision of NATO instructors. And then, I think I’d already sold it.

      Here, I think, the incorrect presentation of information and the richness of the Russian language.
      There are videos on the Internet when operators of both sides launch Soviet anti-aircraft missile systems, and they ... They fall next to the launcher! Well, damp!)))
      I haven’t seen such videos on “Stugna” and “Corsairs” yet. But this does not guarantee that the launches of them are 100 percent “successful” (the word they picked up). After all, if you didn’t get to the center, it’s “not successful”.
      And about the "javelin" ... Here, most likely, more calculation on the psyche. According to the recollection of a friend of the artilleryman (APU), in 2014-2015, after rumors that “Pinocchio” had been spotted in the LPR, many began to suffer psychological decline. Officers had to wipe the snot.
      So with the "javelin." The belief that they are covered by the "omnipresent and omnipotent" ... Probably helps.

    Everything will be as usual.
    Half of “Stugny-P” and “Cornet” will be resold to Libya or to Yemen (for example).
    Javelins will leave "in service".
    Save statistics and raise money a little

    "Darts" in the clashes were not used, as far as I know. Either expensive, or in "non-land" conditions they fear low efficiency. wassat Such a dear, dear unnecessary thing to cheer up the troops ...

      Yes, even if applied. unit commanders should and are even required to know their capabilities and performance characteristics. let's say they were used at a certain site or reconnaissance revealed them. tactics should simply change flexibly to ensure work. somewhere DRGs must knock them out somewhere using their weaknesses, the commanders must readjust. this is a normal job.

      There is a war going on and people are dying, and the word Ukraine means nothing at all. Relatively recently, there was an American special forces. And there is also a paid safari for living people. And you put emoticons. ... As I imagine grandmother in the garden in a sniper scope, it becomes so dark in the eyes. I would like to get there as a fireman, to heat boilers with such "hunters" who are like Ukrainians, but in fact in general ... they just ... need to be disposed of.

        You are not alone in this ... I also have such a desire since 2014 after the Nazis burned people in Ukraine in Odessa and the bombing of civilians in the Donbass.
        But there are Minsk agreements and games of politicians and the life and death of their grandmother means little in them ... these are the realities at the moment.

          All this is nonsense. Grandmother's life is all that we have left after the collapse of the USSR and the city of Horseman. There will be nothing else. If we don’t save, then nothing will come of it further. One shame of the 90s and oblivion will continue. And everything else will be quickly forgotten, including the Minsk “agreements”.

            The USSR has not been around for 20 years ... it’s time to learn how to live in new realities ... we have long ceased to have the Soviet Army ... the Soviet military-industrial complex has long ceased to exist ... but words and simple indignation are of little use.

              what other realities, how can one still live, except in truth? ... the correct answer is through a lie. Your "new" realities are a big shame hole. You have confused the new reality with the place that Russia has never been so abominable in Russia. I am generally silent about Ukraine, its new reality has already ruined all the best that was there, including the future of this state. About some reality there is still the opportunity to talk in Russia only because the country still holds on to people with Soviet education, upbringing and the past. Everything else smells very bad. Searchers for a "new" reality who deny the "old" will have to wrap their feces in candy wrappers all their lives - and nobody will buy it from you, nobody. Everyone is already feeling sick - from the smell of your "new" reality.

      Somewhere else about the fight of the Amer group. SPN with a column of militants, supposedly without the Javs, would not have fought back.

    firstly, not power but opportunity. they still need to be implemented. secondly, in the same Donbass it is necessary to be afraid of just their ATGMs and not these child prodigies.

    With the advent of Zelensky, Ukraine, although it did not join the European Union, but it really became a EUROUkraine)), though ... in the EUROanus)) Something is wrong with their food and water, probably. How can one live like that? ... They flaunted the whole world and go around as if they were restless ... they think they will get away with it for free ... Well, well, the big shame hole and the morning of the shootings' execution are already close. It seems to me that the NATO base ... the Ibanists. And weapons too.

    It will be difficult, or almost impossible, to sell your ineffective one in the republic. And the javelins are expensive, you can sell it, but it's hard to get it! Around zrada! !! crying crying lol

    local generals have such high hopes for American products
    And who still has to pin their hopes if their own defense industry is in decline. What is not important is expensive, but what if the Americans take pity and forgive part of the debts, for example, for land?

    ... Javelins for Ukraine and Gauges for Argentina, Favorit and Thor to Korea and Zelensky - a canary, Powder bag on his head and trousers of melted tin, let him dance until you drop, let him be the star of hit parades ...))
    ... There is nothing serious in Ukraine so far)) ... except for biological laboratories and something else.
    1. There is nothing serious in Ukraine yet

      Well, the Ukrainian army, in principle, differs very little from the Russian army. In service - the same Soviet trash in the same disgusting technical condition, the same backward organization, the same fails with the training of personnel and especially the command and staffs. It would be naive to expect something else from the Armed Forces “hatched” from the Red Army.

        You gave a good example of a text with undisguised provocative content, designed for uneducated people who do not have the skills to handle information sources and appeal not to facts, but to misinformation stamps that are distributed by your colleagues in the media .. You wrote this just not for me, but for everyone else ... you can clearly see why and what it means, you don’t know, right? ..
        1. If I wanted me to not was "visible" - I would not identified even the 18th Center even at the country level of location. smile
          Now in essence: what I wrote above is well known to everyone "not hit TV. "

            You are again mistaken in everything. In particular, I have not been watching TV for 23 years, for various reasons. Think about it ...
            Basically, I don’t need your answer. I think our correspondence is over.

    100 per shot, and without a guarantee that the shooter will hit, a bit too much.
  10. It is unclear why the “Ukrainian generals” should refuse from the “Dartik” from the over-peppercorns? The forehead of the Soviet tank, even covered with a "Doublet," he burns perfectly. And "dzhav" is much more expensive than 250 kilobaxes - your worthless scouts.
