Barrage ammunition is gradually conquering the arms market around the world and becoming more widespread and effective. weapons. Work on the creation of kamikaze drones that hit targets with an air attack is underway in many countries around the world. A modern kamikaze drone is a small-sized aircraft equipped with some explosives. When a target is detected, such a device automatically becomes a homing projectile and hits a ground target.

In Russia, the Kalashnikov concern is actively working in this direction, having presented its barrage ammunition last year KUB-UAV. Great successes in this direction were previously achieved by Turkey, which most recently massively and efficiently used new weapons against various military equipment of the Syrian army. Ukrainian companies are not lagging behind the development of such devices. So, in early March 2020, the Ukrainian media reported on the next tests of the Grom barrage ammunition, for the development of which the specialists of the Atlon Avia research and production enterprise are responsible.

The features of all modern ammunition barrage is the ease of production and relatively low cost. The small size of the vehicles allows drones to remain very difficult targets for radar air defense systems, and their massive use poses a great threat to both the ground forces and the air defense systems themselves. The main purpose of the barrage of ammunition is the defeat of manpower, land and surface military equipment, as well as engineering fortifications and individual enemy targets.

Thunder in March 2020


The private manufacturer of the Atlon Aviation Scientific Production Enterprise is one of the main suppliers of unmanned vehicles for the Ukrainian army. Over the past few years, the company handed over to the Ukrainian military about 300 unmanned aerial vehicles of its own production. One example of a successful development, which is adopted and actively operated, is a multifunctional unmanned aviation complex A1-SM "Fury", which is mainly used for reconnaissance and adjustment of artillery fire. It is known that the company is trying to enter the international market. Atlon Avia has already participated in a tender in Pakistan and is negotiating possible supplies of products to Indonesia.


UAV A1-SM "Fury"

In early March 2020, the company conducted another test of its new development - the Thunder barrage. This kamikaze drone is also known under the designation ST-35 (Silent Thunder, "Silent Thunder"). The name of the ammunition for potential foreign buyers is fully consistent with the capabilities and characteristics of such devices. According to representatives of the Atlon Avia company, the new ammunition is quiet, inconspicuous, but at the same time formidable. The flight of the barrage of ammunition occurs in silent mode at an altitude of more than 500 meters. Visually detecting a small fast-moving target from the ground is very difficult.

Recently conducted tests of the Thunder were completed normally. The developers managed to establish the work of automation, so the launch was fully automatic without intervention in the human process. Also during the tests, the ammunition confirmed its estimated flight speed. As noted by Atlon Avia, the launch was the second using a multicopter.

During the tests, the barrage of the ammunition produced the planned ascent into the air. At a given height, the regular separation of the ammunition from the multicopter took place, the flight itself on the given route also passed in the normal mode. During the tests, the process of automatic tracking of the target and imitation of a dive on a detected ground target were worked out. After completing the tests, the Thunder ammunition returned to the launch pad, landing with a parachute. Such a landing solution is implemented only at this stage, the combat version of the device will not be equipped with a parachute.

Characteristics of the “Thunder” ammunition


According to the assurances of the developers, “Thunder” is a very competitive kamikaze drone with good flight performance. The cruising speed of the drone is 120 km / h. It is noted that this speed should provide the device with an approach to the target area at a distance of 30 kilometers in about 15 minutes (data are given for normal meteorological conditions). The total time spent by the barrage of ammunition in the air is not more than 60 minutes. These results were confirmed during the Thunder flight test.

As noted by Atlon Avia, the Grom barrage ammunition spends about 15-20 minutes on approach to the target, after which it can be in the target area for as many minutes. And even with a strong headwind and adverse weather conditions, spending 40 minutes on a flight to the target, the device will still have enough time in reserve to complete its mission.

The declared take-off weight of the barrage of ammunition is 10 kg, of which a little more than a third - 3,5 kg fall on the warhead. The manufacturer has already said that the Thunder will be equipped with three different types of warheads: thermobaric (the weight of the warhead is indicated for it), high-explosive fragmentation and cumulative. In the future, the developer expects to realize the possibility of directional detonation of the warhead for his kamikaze drone.

The effective operating altitude of the Thunder is from 800 to 1200 meters. The stated probability of hitting a target is 0,95. The declared circular deviation is not more than three meters. The calculation of the complex is three people. The complex includes three barrage of ammunition that can be carried in conventional tactical backpacks. The deployment time of the entire complex on the ground is no more than 15-20 minutes. Due to its low weight, the complex is characterized by good mobility, while the calculation may not even use vehicles, moving around the battlefield for two. At the same time, there is the option of placing the complex on the basis of a car chassis, the choice of execution options remains with the military.

Design Features of Thunder


For their ammunition, Ukrainian designers chose the standard scheme for many modern missiles with an X-shaped arrangement of the wing and rudders. The wing is located approximately in the middle part of the ammunition fuselage, and in the bow there is an optoelectronic target guidance unit. There, in the bow, there is a warhead. The total length of the ammunition is approximately 300 mm, the width is 90-100 mm. The kamikaze drone body is made of modern composite materials (glass and carbon fiber), which provides the product with low weight and good strength characteristics. At the rear of the apparatus is a piston engine with a pushing screw.

The aerodynamic scheme chosen by the developers is a compromise and meets the solution of two main tasks of the ammunition - it provides high aerodynamic qualities in horizontal flight and good controllability during the hover and dive phases. According to the experts of Atlon Avia, the chosen scheme is almost the only possible one, which is why it is also used today by other developers of ammunition around the world. According to the company's engineers, it is not possible to achieve a target with a circular probable deviation of 2-3 meters with a classic aerodynamic design when diving.

A distinctive feature of the “Thunder” ammunition is its launch model. Initially, Ukrainian designers considered options using a pneumatic or flexible catapult, but quickly realized that this solution complicates the operation process, increases the complexity of the launch and the cost of the device itself. Currently, the launch of the barrage of ammunition is carried out using a multicopter (which then also serves as a repeater). The implemented Thunder launch system is a comprehensive solution that effectively solves several tasks at once. Firstly, the complex can be launched from any site, even of very limited sizes, even from the courtyard of a residential building. Secondly, the weight of the complex is minimized, ammunition and launch vehicles are able to carry one fighter. Thirdly, the reliability and ease of use of the complex is growing.

Thunder Barrage Ammunition

During launch, the multicopter raises the barrage of ammunition to a height of approximately 500 meters, after which the projectile is disconnected from the copter and continues to fly independently to the designated area. At the same time, the multicopter itself rises to a height of about one kilometer and remains in the sky, starting to play the role of a repeater. The climb is enough to maintain a stable connection with the barrage of ammunition at a distance of 30-40 kilometers. At this range, a stable video signal is supported, which allows you to control the process of hitting detected targets.

According to the developers from Atlon Avia, the automatic targeting system on the ST-35 Silent Thunder is implemented through an infrared or thermal imaging channel. It is noted that the homing target is variable, depending on the meteorological conditions, the operator of the complex will decide on which guidance system is best to use at a given time. It is noted that the operator takes part in the destruction of ground or surface objects until the moment the target is identified and confirmed - after the barrage, the ammunition begins to work offline and hits the target in a dive.

Another distinctive feature of the complex is the fact that it was originally created taking into account the fact that navigation using GPS or GLONASS systems in the combat area is often ineffective. Therefore, the barrage of ammunition is as independent as possible from GPS positioning. This is especially true when combat tasks have to be solved in the face of active opposition from enemy electronic warfare equipment.

        Even as it has, and it works. How do you cram into an ammunition weighing 5 kg, for example, a camera, navigation, and means of communication with the operator. Everything is simple there - the head “saw” heat and radiation, and lupanula. I think we will not consider the physics of the process.

              The question is not in the performance characteristics of the product. There is nothing revolutionary here. The question is in three aspects: The ability of the state to organize mass production, the ability to organize training of specialists, development of tactics of use. Here (fortunately) I do not see prospects.

                You contradict yourself - if there is nothing revolutionary, then what is your skepticism based on? Finding a weak spot and stinging with drones is much easier than building an effective system of protection against them. Such that the cost of destroying the drone would not be higher than the cost of the drone itself. Yes, complex science-intensive and capital-intensive industries are not for today's Ukraine, but drones are quite capable - large-scale cooperation is not needed in their production, large long-term investments are not needed, and most importantly, small private companies can afford it, which can easily find a couple of dozen sensible engineers and handy collectors. That is why drones are betting - and not only there, but in many other countries, including small ones. Turkish components - only for the first step, then they can do it themselves.

              A similar Russian development.
              Okryna will certainly dispute her priority in the field of X-plumage, but Russian development appeared earlier.
              But okrayna has its own know how, in terms of dropping a UAV-kamikaze through a "multicopter."

      If the "Fury" Bandera development, then I am a Spanish pilot. All components are bought in China, in Banderland they simply assemble and hook the nameplate "Made in Ukraine." This is one of the most chic options for cutting the Bandera budget, because after the UAV’s nameplate is “made in Ukraine”, the price is not at all Chinese, it’s closer to the Israeli or mattress. And such firms that yesterday traded household chemicals, and today produce the latest weapons for the UKSS, are immeasurable.

        Hospada, yes this can literally be said about any UAV today. For example, the same "Orlan" for civilian use is assembled from Chinese components and fiberglass.
        In addition, on the websites of companies providing agricultural UAV services and manufacturing turnkey UAVs, you can find completely different gliders up to the MQ-1 Predator, only on a reduced scale, without TPV and the corresponding equipment.
        Maybe Athlone used to be some kind of scrub, in the year of 2014-2015.
        If you really followed the theme of the development of small UAVs, at least the same Chinese or Belarusian ones, but here clearly wishful thinking is presented.
        On the same “Furies” there is optics from the Turks or the French, which for Athlone under license is collected by either Trimen or ARCHER, in addition to the network there are quite a few stories on their (Atlon Avia) production and assembly sites.
        Even in the DNI reports, “Fury” is not the most frequent guest; I watched from an incomplete dozen. Although, following the logic of the fact that this is a Chinese consumer goods and sludge drank the budget, they should have crashed during the flight by 30-40%, and fell as much in the territory of the DPR after the suppression of electronic warfare.

    The total length of the ammunition is approximately 300 mm, the width is 90-100 mm. The declared take-off weight of the barrage of ammunition is 10 kg, of which a little more than a third - 3,5 kg fall on the warhead.

          You can approximately determine from a photograph that with a fuselage diameter of 100 mm, the length of the ammunition will be approximately 1150 mm. Then the data on the declared take-off weight of the barrage of ammunition (10 kg) and the weight of the warhead (3,5 kg) do not contradict common sense.

    The non-brothers are all puffing and puffing, imagining themselves "languid", but in reality they have long been at the level of Bulgaria and Romania. It would be time for them to realize this already, otherwise they spoiled them in the USSR, until now the non-brothers consider themselves to be an exceptional nation, I remember how in the USSR they despised Russians and sincerely believed that they fed the whole Union. Well, what kind of mriies were from the non-brothers in 1991, they considered themselves the second France.

      Well, in general, even if you take yesterday’s statement by the MO - 2 shells are damaged, but not destroyed. And the day before yesterday the Syrian Defense Ministry - 25 Buka missiles = 20 UAVs of various types. So far there is no special fly swatter. For the Buk missile will be more expensive than such buzzers.

      Today, ANN + GPS / Glonass / Beidu + programmable route + several flight scenarios + corrections = one small fee. With such people they fly from Idlib to Khmeimim at a distance of 40-45 km. And this is not a hi-tech, but a homeless segment.

    Therefore, the barrage of ammunition is as independent as possible from GPS positioning. This is especially true when combat tasks have to be solved in the face of active opposition from the enemy’s electronic warfare


    Yeah. And if the electronic warhead does not drown out the GPS, but the communication channel with the "bomb"?

    On the goat’s face (to the munition with radio control based on the image relayed to the ground operator) button accordion (additional passive GOS that receives reflected laser radiation, which illuminates the target from the reconnaissance UAV)?

    A similar task could be handled by an order of magnitude cheaper guided artillery shell or mine with a laser seeker in conjunction with a reconnaissance UAV.

    The chip of the barrage of ammunition is that it was visually aimed at the target by the ground operator without using the backlight from the reconnaissance UAV, which imposes increased requirements for protecting the radio command channel from being blocked and intercepted by the enemy, i.e. the dog is buried in radio electronics. And all the air models of barrage of ammunition presented in advertising articles are nothing more than products of creativity at the level of the air circle of the Pioneer House.

    From Military Review June 2019: Lancet-1 is equipped with a high-explosive fragmentation warhead weighing 1 kg. In this configuration, it has a take-off weight of only 5 kg. The Lancet-3 UAV is noticeably heavier. It weighs 12 kg and carries a 3 kg warhead.
    . In flight, they are capable of speeds of 80-110 km / h. A lighter apparatus has a flight duration of 30 minutes, a heavy version - up to 40 minutes. It provides work at ranges up to 40 km from the operator’s console. "
    So, if the “ex-brothers” do not lie with their TTD, then our “Lancets” lose!

    With a multirotor, they were too smart about something, making a repeater out of it, if the ammunition flies at an altitude of 500 m, it will be accessible from any hill and at twice the distance, and the multicopter will not help beyond the mountains, only the position will shine.

    To the land for forty km. no EW bullshit will not fill, but this one on this multicopter is quite.

    Quote: Fedorov

    According to the developers from Atlon Avia, the automatic targeting system on the ST-35 Silent Thunder is implemented through an infrared or thermal imaging channel.

    That is, we turn on the microwave on the take-out and “catch, although expensive for such an ashman.” One Yugoslav told me how they American missiles “landed.” The guidance head, it’s relatively dull, thinks that the tank is working and muster ...

    What Yugoslav you slept bot! laughing

    Interestingly, do we have something like that?

    In bulk!
    The Israelis have long been stealing their old stuff for us, and then their generals mock that they stole Russian museum exhibits for refusing to pay for supplies of C 300 to Iran (there was such a story).

    ". AT 2010 the year, OPK Oboronprom JSC (Rostec Group of Companies) signed with Israel Aerospace Industries LTD a contract for the supply of 17 assembly kits of Forpost unmanned aerial vehicles and 40 assembly kits of Zastava UAVs for a total amount of US $ 410 million. In accordance with the supplement of March 6, 2014, 3 more sets were to be delivered to Russia "Outposts"equipped with Glonass systems (total value - more than 69 million US dollars). " Source: http://rucompromat.com/articles/likvidatsiya_aktiva_rosteha_stoila_uzga_polmilliarda "

    "Israel will not transfer advanced military technologies to Russia, said in an interview Israel Defense Director of the Military-Political Bureau of the Ministry of Defense of Israel, retired Major General Amos Gilad.
    According to him, “the only thing we sold to Russia is the Sercher UAV, which is a 30 year obsolete machine with obsolete systems».
    A. Gilad emphasized that “the Russian side wanted to get it for the production of its own UAVs. We have fulfilled our part of the UAV agreement, but not a single modern system has been sold and will not be sold to Russia. "

    "Last year, a Jewish newspaper Haaretz reported that a Patriot air defense missile launched a Jewish drone by a Russian drone, after which the IDF inflicted a blow on Hezbollah’s positions for some reason. Despite the Cyrillic inscription and other signs of identification Outpost, local experts easily identified an Israeli drone pattern IAI Searcher (The Seeker). However, the scandal did not work, although Israel was attacked, in fact, by Israeli weapons.".

    This is a real challenge! Now, without cover against such kamikaze, you cannot stick your nose out of cover. Need anti-drone protection, and around the clock and all-weather. I would put on Mercury-BM, the Zoo and any air defense systems in the complex. Including - I would count on Cornets, Chrysanthemums and Derivation. And for this to work on the move - that’s the problem ...

      Do not forget the Armata, Su-35, SPG-9, PTO Rapira. Well, throw a couple of MONOKs, submarines of the Borey type. And those drones that remain will be finished with tactical nuclear charges. Only more careful with them ...

    The target is a slow and rather large KAZ such as Arena or Drozd 2, which should cope without any problems. Most likely, the elements to be shot must be added to cover the upper hemisphere (IMHO). Or something to fancy with buckshot.
