ATGM "Cornet" - an effective destroyer of tanks


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 is not based on "deep digging", but on speed and maneuver. A pair of such “tank destroyers” will quickly jump out on the flank of the attacking enemy tanks, launch and quickly escape, to a new frontier or reload.
      It would be very wonderful to install an aiming system from the “Chrysanthemum” at least on some of these machines, then there would be no salvation for the enemy “boxes”. True, this will increase the price two times, but it's worth it

        Do you want to make "grandmother" "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"! Do not like the tracks, put on wheels! How the caterpillar Nona-S was put on wheels in the Nona-SVK! By the way, the self-propelled Kornet-S was once created on a tracked platform ... with "technical vision", but without radar! "Cornet" on the "Tiger" - the "budget" version of the self-propelled ATGM! If you think about how to get there and radar, then you have to think about changing the chassis! Do not forget the "wisdom" of Kartsev: crayfish for 5 r. and 3 p. ...!

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

              I am an NGO and suggest installing it on the Tiger Cornet

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

                And this is a controversial "question"! 9M123 in versions ("Chrysanthemum") "beat" for 5-6 km ... true, in super sound! "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, it was created (worked out ...) "radio beam" guidance system! Even, "checked" with IK.GOSN! 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 supplement the ammunition with the LeMUR-PM missile ... In a more "distant" future, in order to keep it operational Chrysanthemums will have to develop hypersonic kinetic PT 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 flying "scrap", and for a projectile and a rocket with a cumulative charge, the speed is not at all important, and sometimes harmful. So for “Chrysanthemum” and “Cornet” stealth is more important, advanced detection tools, protection of the control channel, the presence of a tandem warhead, and finally, the speed is not a rocket, but the carrier in the first place, which would be faster in the threatened direction, and then disappear faster 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.

      Here the word "bad" is not clear. Given the range of their firing, for these "fighters" you can assign firing lines beyond the strongholds of companies and battalions of the first echelon, relying on these lines on rockades. So that they can be used to repel an attack by armored vehicles both from the front and to strike into the flank of the enemy units that broke through

    The host has a mournful voice, I do not like it. It’s interesting, why not put rockets in a row, the height would be less. Not out of visibility, now prominence does not play a big role. he will not lie on his side on a slope? That's what . Yes, and it’s dangerous on it to approach the tanks. I remember Challenger, not the best tank in Iraq, hit the t-62 with 4.700m in battle, is considered a record. And since the rocket is probably good, hang it on a robot, and in an ambush. In Amers, the fire ant robot can sit in an ambush for more than a week. It has long been applied.

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

    NOT special in a similar technique .. But "Tiger" - really like. Beautiful, passable car. Fishing would be like that ..

      Well, from the fish inspection to shoot at fishing "Cornet" will be a little expensive. But a couple of arrows in the kit and a DShK on the roof will not hurt. Something so many restrictions impose on fans of sitting with a fishing rod, as on what terrorists.
