The use of RBS-15: Sweden conducted missile exercises to repel an attack from the Baltic Sea

The Swedish military conducted joint fire with anti-ship missiles from land, sea and air. The exercises were sudden, without prior notice to the participants.


As can be understood from the video shot by the Swedish military, at least six RBS-15 anti-ship missiles were used. The missiles were launched in two salvos from the coastal launcher, the JAS 39 Gripen fighter and from the side of the Visby-type corvette.


The Swedes tested and tested in practice the ability to repel ship attacks in the Baltic Sea.

The anti-ship missile RBS-15, which was used during the exercises, is manufactured by the Swedish company Saab.

It should be noted that exercises were conducted during the coronavirus epidemic. One of the goals of the maneuvers was to demonstrate that the Swedish army is always ready to defend the country's territorial integrity even in a situation where part of the armed forces supports the population and helps the healthcare system fight the spread of COVID-19 infection.

The shooting fits into the policy pursued by Stockholm to strengthen measures to protect against a potential threat, which in the opinion of the Swedish leadership, represents Russia. After the annexation of Crimea to Russia in 2014, Sweden decided to increase defense spending, accelerate the modernization of the armed forces, as well as to increase the size of the army and restore conscription.

    RBS-15 rocket
    Such a good rocket. Based on ships, aircraft, chassis, stationary. In addition to the Swedes, the Poles are on some kind of corvette, the Germans seem to be planning on putting promising frigates. Range of about 200km, can hit including for highly maneuverable small-sized targets for ships in skerries and bases. It has a low-altitude approach profile with increasing speed and the possibility of maneuvering in the final section. guidance with pom. RLGSN. In general, her ability to maneuver is amazing - I read somewhere that during tests in the mid-2000s at a distance of less than 200 km she made 25 maneuvers and could programmatically change the target. Equipped with UVT. The design used radar absorbing materials. Dangerous bird in general. Yes. Warhead is rather weak - 200 kilograms seems.

        And this one is better? Less ? In bad weather (and often in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea), the infrared seeker will experience problems.
        IMHO, rbs15 is better for bad weather and tightness

          The variant of the RBS-15 Mk4 being developed and shown at the DSEI 2019 is much more interesting.It will already be a universal missile (both on ships and on the ground) .Yes and range will significantly increase.
          RBS-15 Mk4
          It is under development. Includes dual band GOS (ARLGSN and IK). It should be used both against ships and ground targets. At the same time, the warhead can vary depending on the chosen mission. Planned range of about 1000 km.

          X-35U is more compact - compare launchers, more universal - can be used not only for ships, but also for ground targets, the range of destruction is more than 300 km (not an export option), which is more than that of the RBS-15 Mk. 3.

        So this is a joint development. The Swedes in their repertoire, as is the case with the Grippen aircraft, the RBS-15Mk.3 anti-ship missile is essentially an international missile assembled from components from different countries.
        If you do not take into account the previous options, then the Mc3 - and in the future the Mc4 - is a joint development with the German Diehl BGT Defense. Although Saab retains responsibility for the design, Diehl is responsible for some of the major subsystems and the final assembly of the rocket. Saab and Diehl have invested in the development of the RBS15 Mk3 rocket of the order of 100 million euros and are currently jointly promoting the Mk3 variant and the promising RBS15 variants.


        Perhaps the RBS15 Mk3 can certainly be called a “European” rocket: a turbojet engine with a variable thrust vector TR 60-5 from Microturbo / Safran; rocket boosters from the French Roxel; a high-explosive fragmentation warhead weighing 200 kg was developed by TDW (a division of MBDA Germany), although Saab provides a programmable remote fuse for it; the navigation unit was developed by Diehl; the adaptive radar altimeter was developed by the French Thales, and the software for it is Saab; Finally, the on-board computer is manufactured by Diehl, and again, the software for it was developed by Saab. The type of GPS system depends on the specific requirements of the customer: either civilian GPS or military GPS, in this case the equipment is supplied by the customer.
        The “brain” of a rocket is an active high-resolution active radar seeker of the J-band (10 to 20 GHz), for which hardware and software were developed by Saab.

    About the exercises)))

    What do you think in the picture?
    And the picture shows the "signature" of the American battalion and its transport convoy deployed during the exercise, received from the electronic reconnaissance satellite. Oh, not even a couple of decades have passed since the military began to realize that all these "soldiers of the XXI century", equipped with gadgets and "elements of an electronic battlefield", represent an excellent target, "shining" right up to near space - "Here he, me! I'm here! Shoot if you can! " We can, as much as we can, as one Soviet admiral used to say for a long time: "We can sink an American aircraft carrier at any time in any part of the world, if we only know where it is!" Why Know? He himself "shines" in almost the entire range of EM waves. Day and night, through the clouds - too.

    Analysis and evaluation of any modern anti-ship missiles should begin with the quality of the GOS, and then look at the warhead weight, speed, range, etc.
    If the electronic warfare deceive her, what's the difference, what is the warhead ....
