Ukraine launches test launches of air-to-surface missiles with MiG-29MU2

47

The Ukrainian military began the next stage of test firing from the MiG-29MU2 aircraft using the Kh-29T guided missile system. They are part of the flight design tests of a modernized aircraft.


Here is what the ArmyInform news agency, owned by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, wrote about the modernization of the MiG-29MU2 multipurpose aircraft:

The flight design tests of the upgraded MiG-29 aircraft, in particular, with the combat use of guided missiles of the air-to-surface type, continue.

The new fighter is testing the State Research Institute for Testing and Certification of Arms and Military Equipment.

Aviation X-29 missile belongs to the class of air-to-ground ("air-to-surface") missiles of short range. It is intended for the destruction of military equipment, defense structures (strong points, headquarters, control and observation posts, etc.), infrastructure (bridges, concrete runways), as well as ships and vessels with a displacement of up to 10 thousand tons. It was developed in the USSR in the 70s, and in 1980 it was adopted by the Soviet Army.

      Actually, this is not a revelation that their preparations were and are always aimed at one thing - to destroy us.
      And the news about missile launches is not at all frightening, I just want to find out how many people can take off with such missiles. What can we count on, what potential?

        X-29 launches can be carried out with the Su-24M and Mig-29MU2.There is also a video when the Kh-24 was launched from the Su-29M. Video from the link below.
        They talk about modernization, but can they themselves produce the X-29TE? request
        Rozrobka in the 1970s was taken by the Molniya NVO and the Vympel NVO, which were adopted at the 1980s in the Republic of Armenia.

        In the fallow forms of the victorist system of self-determination. The X-29L has a 24H1 laser, the X-29T has a passive Tubus-2 television. The battle unit’s waggon is 320 kg, the zastosuvannya range is 2 to 10 km for the X-29L and 3 to 12 for the X-29T.

        Previously, Organizations of the Volyn Air Force OVAL / Lutsk Aeroclub “Krila Volini” published on their Facebook page video launch of the X-29 air missiles on the 24-hour front door:

        https://mil.in.ua/uk/news/rozpochalys-pusky-h-29t-z-mig-29-mu2/

        The upgraded version of the rocket has a launch range of up to 30 km

        The total cost of modernization of the complex is estimated at 13 hryvnias for 000. The work will be carried out by the NGO “Ray”.

        "Subject: work to extend the assigned service life of air-to-surface missiles X-29 (L, T). Expected purchase price: 12 996 114 UAH. The work will be carried out by the State Enterprise" State Kiev Design Bureau "Luch".



        Famous air-to-ground X-29 missiles returned to Ukrainian Air Force after modernization

        Depending on the type of laser target illumination device, the rocket autopilot selects the target attack mode to ensure the best characteristics of the defeat. Preference is given to trajectories in which the rocket hits the target almost vertically, breaking through thick ceilings.

    Launch range X-29: 4km - 6km to the target, you can continue to launch, but not by much, it is not recommended ..
    These missiles were going to be launched over some bridges, ships and concrete runways, no one will tell you clearly, including the developers themselves, these missiles work on point targets. It is effective to work on area and fortified targets with high-explosive bombs, but this, apparently, they don’t even understand.
    In the process of aiming and launching, they will be knocked down very quickly, although it will simply not reach the launch of the rocket itself.

        To launch the X-29, you must have a high level of flight training, extensive flight experience and so on.
        They have nothing, from the word at all, only talk about the trials, there are no pilots either.
        It's not easy - they hung the rocket, and go ahead, let it go. It’s not known what, and it is not known by whom, what and where, they will shoot.

          Then the rocket does not need to be launched. The plane can simply ram its goal and complete the task.

      I agree, the rocket is good, but in Soviet times there was a ban on them, namely on the X-29T, which was never removed. They were not allowed in. It is not known what exactly the Pobrats invented.

        Maybe I'm confusing it with the X-25, earlier. But at the final stage, when approaching the target, the pilot needed to bring the radio command to the rocket precisely from the television GS, using the joystick button.

          This is the guidance method for the Kh-59 and Kh-59M. The Kh-29T has a multi-vision seeker and the "fire and forget" principle. But before the launch, you still need to capture the target of the missile seeker. These are the main problems on the MiG-29, since there is no specialized aiming container and the target must be searched through the missile seeker.
          By the way, in the USSR, a modification of the MiG-29SM was created, which could use X-29T missiles, but it seems that only two prototypes were built. But they were even brought to Le Bourget

            Yes, that's right, but there were even bigger problems with this. Guidance was unreliable, there was a chance of re-targeting, as a rule, to linear landmarks, that is, after the rocket was launched, its chaotic movement began.
            Why, and removed from harm's way.

          The earlier one is the X-23, a purely radio-controlled missile. There, with a joystick, they aimed the missile at the target.

                X-25 ("product 69", X-25L) - the basic version with a laser seeker
                X-25MA - with active radar seeker, has been offered for export since 1999
                X-25ML (“product 713”) - with a semi-active laser GSN 24N1 and a tandem warhead capable of punching up to 1 meter of concrete [4]
                X-25R / X-25MR (“product 714”) - with interference-protected radio command guidance
