ATGM "Cornet" - an effective destroyer of tanks

19

Each tank has its own anti-tank missile system, its own ATGM. Are modern anti-tank missile weapons really so effective that the armor of any tank? This issue is also on the agenda for the reason that there is an extramural confrontation between the tank builders and the creators of the ATGM. In this confrontation, even a trifle, which, it would seem, can be ignored, can play a decisive role. But in such a matter as the creation of weapons, there are no trifles.


One of the anti-tank missile systems with high destructive ability is the domestic "Cornet" - a tank destroyer of excellent efficiency.

Surprisingly, even if one army vehicle armed with anti-tank systems was put on the battlefield against a tank company, this vehicle would have many chances to stop tank advancement, or even become the sole winner.

In the next issue of Military Acceptance on Zvezda TV channel, a representative of the Kornetov manufacturing plant notes that if the ATGM calculation takes the opportunity to fire the shot first, then he will have an advantage in the ratio of 7 to 1. It also provides the anti-tank aiming range missile system, which is on average 3 km longer than the effective range of the tank itself.

    High, contagion. It is necessary to dig deeply. request
    On the other hand, to shoot from far away, you need to be the first to see, there are a bunch of devices, and even 4 barrels, not one. repeat

      His main tactics of action are not based on "deep burial", but on speed and maneuver. A pair of such "tank destroyers" will quickly jump out into the flank of the attacking enemy tanks, launch and quickly escape, to a new line or reload.
      It would be great to install at least some of these machines a sighting system from the "Chrysanthemum", then there would be no salvation for the enemy "boxes" at all. True, this will double the price, but it's worth it

        Do you want to make "grandmother" a "grandfather"? And what? Two "grandfathers" and without a "grandmother"?

          The lace of your ornate thought did not understand. And why is it bad to install a radar-optical sighting system on this machine, from which there is no fog, no smoke, no night can be saved?

            Duc. there is already a "radar-optical sighting system" on the "Chrysanthemum"! Caterpillars do not like, put them on wheels! How the tracked "Nona-S" was put on wheels in the "Nona-SVK"! By the way, a self-propelled "Kornet-S" was once created on a tracked platform ... with "technical vision", but without a radar! "Cornet" on "Tiger" - "budget" version of self-propelled ATGM! If you think about how to put the radar in there, then you have to think about changing the chassis! Do not forget the "wisdom" of Kartsev: crayfish for 5 rubles. and 3 p. ...!

              No "Tiger" will pull this additional load, its carrying capacity will be enough.

              It is possible and even necessary to do this, since the Chrizentama uses a different anti-tank missile with higher characteristics.

                And this is already a controversial "question"! 9M123 in modifications ("Chrysanthemum") "beat" at 5-6 km ... but at supersonic speed! "Cornet-D" - for 8-10 km ... "Chrysanthemum" with a "two-beam" guidance system (laser beam and radio beam ...), but for the "cornet", in my opinion, was created (worked out ...) "radio-beam" guidance system! Even, "checked" with IK.GSN! I suppose that it is possible to create a variant of the self-propelled ATGM "Chrysanthemum-S" with the possibility of using both 9M123 and 9M133 ... In the future, it is possible to add ammunition with a LeMUR-PM missile ... Chrysanthemums will have to develop hypersonic kinetic anti-tank missiles ...

                  In a more "distant" future, in order to keep the Chrysanthemums in service, it will be necessary to develop hypersonic kinetic anti-tank missiles ...

                  And it will be wise ... an increase in speed, entails an increase in the speed of defeat, range and penetration. No DZ, multi-layer reservation or KAZ is now a problem for such an armor-piercing projectile
                  And at the expense of the radar sighting system, this is our way of eliminating the lag in the detection range and aiming at night or in other conditions of limited visibility and even gaining an advantage. On the T-14, as well as on the Korean K-2, such sighting systems are. It could have appeared earlier with us if the tank that we called the T-95 were brought to production

                    You are absolutely right:
                    increase in speed, leads to an increase in the speed of defeat, range of application and penetration. No DZ, multi-layer reservation or KAZ is now a problem for such an armor-piercing projectile

                    But this is true only for a flying "scrap", and for a projectile and missile with a shaped charge, speed is not at all important, and sometimes harmful. So for the "Chrysanthemum" and "Kornet" it is more important to be invisible, developed means of detection, protection of the control channel, the presence of a tandem warhead, and finally, not the speed of the rocket, but of the carrier in the first place, in order to be faster in the threatened direction, and then quickly disappear from him.

        For Syria, the chassis will work, but for our latitudes, at least from a motorcycle league.

    You can probably drive on the flanks and rear of a poorly organized enemy tank group. And so, they won’t let them near, they’ll throw out artillery on the front line or with the same cornet, only from the masked position by the operator, the car is very tall, like hiding it on the battlefield.

      The word "bad" is not clear here. Taking into account the range of their firing, for these "fighters" it is possible to assign firing lines behind the strongpoints of companies and battalions of the first echelon, relying on these lines on the rokada. So that they can be used to repel an attack by armored vehicles both from the front and for attacks on the flank of enemy units that have broken through

    The presenter has a mournful voice, I don't like it. Interestingly, why not place the missiles in a row, the height would be less. Not because of the visibility, now the visibility does not play a big role. he will not lie on his side on the slope? That's what . Yes, and it is dangerous to approach the tanks on it. I remember Challenger, not the best tank, hitting a T-62 in Iraq with 4.700 m in battle, is considered a record. And so the rocket is probably good, hang it on a robot, and ambush. Amers' robot "fire ant" can sit in ambush for more than a week. It has long been used.

    It is possible that a "cornet" with a "nuclear shock" warhead of the TOW-2B type would be very useful ... Such a "cornet" would also work well against air targets (helicopters, UAVs ...)!

      Well, it will be a little expensive to shoot back from the inspection fish on fishing "Cornet". But a couple of arrows in the kit and a DShK on the roof will not hurt. Something for those who like to sit with a fishing rod are imposed as many restrictions as on what terrorists.

    These things need to be given to the defenders of LDNR. Americans allowed dill to use javelins in the Donbass. Cornet is the answer to the javelins.
