Launch of armor-piercer missiles


Russian industry completed work on promising unmanaged aviation missile S-8OFP “Armor-piercer”. As it became known the other day, the production of such products has begun and documents are being prepared for their official adoption. All necessary procedures will be completed next year.

The latest news


On May 25, TASS published a statement by Alexander Kochkin, Executive Director of NPK Tekhmash. He said that the concern had manufactured the first batch of promising NAR for use in the framework of pilot military operation and development of combat use. Products are released at the expense of the manufacturer, and he hopes that the Ministry of Defense will begin the necessary activities in the near future.

At the beginning of 2019, the leadership of Techmash announced the completion of state testing of the S-8OFP product and the imminent start of experimental military operation. However, the real timing of the transfer of missiles to the troops has moved. According to A. Kochkin, this is due to a change in the terms of reference. In the very near future, the customer will adjust the requirements, which will allow to continue work.

On May 27, a representative of NPK Tekhmash again revealed some details of current work, this time in an interview for RIANews". The concern is ready to launch production of new NAR in the interests of the aerospace forces. Serial deliveries are scheduled to begin as early as 2021.

The issue with the terms of reference was successfully resolved, the Ministry of Defense made the necessary changes. Now his task is to prepare documents for the official adoption of the NAR into service, and this work will begin in the coming days. How long it will take is not specified.

A new example of the old family


Recall, the unguided missile S-8OFP "Armor-piercer" is another representative of a fairly old family of aircraft ammunition S-8. The development of this line of NAR has been going on since the mid-sixties, and to date it includes one and a half dozen products for various purposes with different characteristics.

The development of a new version of the old rocket was carried out in the NPO "Splav", which is part of the NPK "Techmash". The latter, in turn, is included in the control circuits of the state corporation Rostec. The main objective of the project was to create a NAR with an increased flight range and a penetrating warhead that was fundamentally new for the family.

The materials for the S-8OFP project were first shown to the public in 2014. After that, the NPO Splav completed the design and brought the missile to testing. For the first time such works were reported in May 2018. Then it was claimed that by the end of the year the Armor Striker would pass state tests. In February 2019, Techmash reported on the successful completion of these events. Soon there was information about the imminent adoption and the launch of the series.

Main differences


The new Armor Striker missile is made in the old S-8 form factor, which ensures compatibility with existing launch blocks. In this case, completely new components and solutions are used that provide a significant increase in the basic characteristics.

The caliber of the S-8OFP rocket remained the same - 80 mm. The length of the product reaches 1500 mm and generally corresponds to other members of the family. Starting weight - no more than 17 kg. The missile has a cylindrical body with a conical head. The tail unit in the transport position is laid on the body by turning sideways; at launch, it opens, providing the promotion and stabilization of the rocket.

The "armor-piercer" receives a new high-explosive fragmentation warhead of the penetrating type - this particular feature is listed in the "OFP" index. Warhead weighing 9 kg carries more than 2,5 kg of explosive and has a hardened body with an internal notch for the formation of fragments. The warhead is equipped with a dual-mode contact fuse. It can be set to undermine when in contact with the target or with some delay - to break through the barrier and explode behind it.

For the new NAR, a solid propellant rocket engine with improved energy performance and dimensions of previous products has been developed. With its help, a flight is provided for a range of up to 6 km. For comparison, the most advanced modifications of the NAR S-8 have a range of no more than 3-4 km.

Due to the preservation of the old form factor, the S-8OFP product can be used with all existing suspended launch blocks. Similar devices can carry from 7 to 20 missiles. Accordingly, the new NAR can be used by a wide range of domestic aircraft and front-line helicopters. Apparently for the effective use of uncontrollable weapons with altered flight and energy characteristics, additional tuning of fire control systems is required.


Work with S-8 missiles

According to domestic media reports, the Su-25 attack aircraft will receive the new weapons in the first place. It is also intended for attack and multi-purpose helicopters of several types. However, with the supply and implementation of the “Armor Striker” it can become part of a typical combat load and other aircraft capable of using S-8 or other NAR.

Armor-piercing benefits


Uncontrolled aircraft missile S-8OFP "Armor-piercer" is of great interest to the airborne forces in the context of solving a wide range of combat missions. Despite the advent of high-precision systems, NAR remain the most important part of the front-line aviation weapons complex, and the new product expands the range of available ammunition and gives previously missing capabilities.

One of the main advantages of the “Armor Striker” over its predecessor is associated with the new engine. With its help, the firing range increases by 1,5-3 times in comparison with various types of NAR. Due to this, the construction of a combat approach is simplified and the likelihood of a number of enemy anti-aircraft weapons entering the affected zone is reduced. In addition, the new engine compensates for the significant increase in the mass of the rocket itself and its warhead.

The new high-explosive penetrating warhead is several times heavier than the combat equipment of other versions of the S-8 NAR. So, the base S-8 carried a 3,6-kg warhead with 1 kg of explosive. Concrete NAR S-8B and S-8BM carried warheads weighing up to 7,4 kg, but with a reduced charge. The promising "Armor Striker" combines a large mass of charge and warheads in general.

The robust warhead casing provides penetration of various obstacles, which can be used for delayed blasting. There is the possibility of breaking through brick and concrete buildings, earth embankment, etc. Also, S-8OFP becomes an effective tool against lightly armored enemy vehicles. Targets with stronger protection can suffer severe damage to combat effectiveness.


Ammunition transportation. Soon the new NAR S-8OFP will be transported in this way.

The possibility of undermining after breaking through the barrier will be useful when attacking enemy buildings and / or manpower hiding in them. The destruction of such an object using high-explosive fragmentation warheads is associated with a significant expenditure of ammunition, and a penetrating charge can give substantial savings - especially taking into account the relatively low accuracy of NAR.

Accuracy problem


Despite all the innovations, the “Armor Striker” remains an unguided missile, which reduces the possible accuracy of the hit and increases the consumption of ammunition for hitting a small target. As in the case with other NAR, this problem is solved by using modern weapons control systems. A significant part of the Russian Air Force strike aircraft has already received the SVP-24 Gefest sighting and navigation system, which provides increased accuracy for unguided weapons.

According to known data, a radical solution is also being prepared - a guided missile based on the existing NAR. Recently, a project of ammunition with the code "Monolith" regularly appears in the news. According to some reports, this missile is made on the basis of the “Armor Striker” with various design changes, as well as with the introduction of homing tools. Thus, the new "Monolith" will combine the characteristics of NAR with increased accuracy.

According to Techmash, a prototype of the Monolith product will be ready only in 2-3 years, and the base Armor Striker will be released next year. It follows that after 2021, for several years, VKS will be able to use only the uncontrolled version of the S-8OFP - although in the future there will be a wider choice.

Family development


According to recent reports, the latest uncontrolled aircraft missile of the S-8 family has passed the necessary tests, after which it is preparing for experimental military operation and for adoption. At the same time, work continues on its improved version, probably equipped with homing tools.

Thus, the development of the NAR line, which began more than half a century ago, continues to this day and gives the desired results. The concept of an 80-mm unguided rocket has not yet exhausted its capabilities, and the advent of new technologies and components allows its continued development. Thanks to this, already next year our VKS will receive an armor striker product with improved capabilities, and in the future they will have a more perfect and accurate Monolith.

    Accuracy problem
    Уже основной вопрос сейчас, даже в борьбе с "бармалеями". Которые все чаще и чаще "огрызаются" из ПЗРК, а сами прикрываются гражданским населением
    and in the future they are waiting for a more perfect and accurate "Monolith".
    Вот и надо на их быстрейшее доведение и запуск в производство сейчас тратить средства, а не на выпуск уже морально устаревшей неуправляемой ракеты. Так мало того, если удастся сохранить примерные габариты и вес, то "Монолит" возможно рассмотреть для применения с БПЛА

          Well, given the amount of equipment armed with NARs, not everything may be so obvious, let there be modern ammunition for them. They also have some kind of tactical niche. But of course I will not argue with the fact that guided precision weapons must be developed.

            The monolith will be adjustable and will belong to the class of precision weapons, unlike the S-13.
            The developer recalled that the "Monolith" will be adjustable and will belong to the class of precision weapons, unlike the S-13. He emphasized that the development is being carried out with "Alloy" on an initiative basis.
            In October 2018, the Director General of NPK Tekhmash Vladimir Lepin announced that the development of the Monolith was a continuation of the work on the Armored Striker, but in a different caliber.
            The S-13 missile was designed to destroy aircraft in reinforced concrete shelters, equipment and manpower of the enemy, located in especially strong shelters. Depending on the modification, it is capable of punching up to one meter of reinforced concrete.

          Apparently on the shelves end the old achievements of the era of the USSR. To start modern work, a young man should play with drone, radio control and pyrotechnics from school years calmly. But modern Russian science, which Yeltsin has destroyed, cannot offer anything new. And in order to learn new things, it’s not enough personal devotion to bosses and family ties. It’s easier for a smart person to find work in the USA, Europe, Korea, Vietnam, Tajikistan.

      For NAR (with emphasis on the word "неуправляемая") 6 km is already above the roof. = _ = No longer Hephaestus will help with a greater distance. In addition, a range of 6 km is sufficient in most cases - almost all MANPADS have a range of up to 5 km.

      So it is necessary to spend money on their quickest completion and launch in production, and not on the release of an obsolete unguided rocket.

      "Бронебойщик" попросту очень дешёвый. "Монолит"-то будет управляемым. Да и форм-фактор у него от С-13 - с её 130мм и под 80кг веса (пусковой блок С-13 около полутонны весит, прицепить пару таких на вертолёт - уже на другое оружие места и не останется). Плюс, из пушки по воробью палить - это тоже, знаете ли, расточительно. Потому и раньше в войсках применяли и С-8, и С-13 параллельно. Для каждой из этих НАР своя тактическая ниша существует и свои цели.

        Yeah ... But nothing that:
        - her range is not even 6 km, but up to 6
        - after the launch of the missiles, the aircraft will not deploy instantly in place, but will do so smoothly, just flying into the MANPADS coverage area

          Maneuvers to evade enemy MANPADS by helicopter pilots were worked out back in the days of Afghanistan. And also with OLD S-8s (with their range of 3-4 km. And I hope you remember that for all the years of the war, losses percussion Ми-24 (это важно! т.к. большинство сбитых были "грузовиками", высаживавшими/забиравшими десант над самым "пеклом") от ПЗРК были оч. малыми. Едва ли не единичными.

            30 years have passed since then. It’s stupid to focus on tactics of carts against IS-3, tactics of MIG-21 against F35. In addition, the Stingers supplied by the Americans were very limited and limited to the Afghans used. In one village of Chamkani, about 5 unused stingers remained at the beginning of the US invasion. No economy can train so many pilots of unguided rocket platforms so that they can overcome modern air defense. And to keep the infrastructure of the bases of such platforms from attacks by drones by a modern state is incredibly expensive to create.

        Все наши РСЗО, до сих пор используют "неуправляемые" и дальность максимального выстрела у них значительно больше 6 км. Так, что и проблему кучности на больших дальностях решить можно. Тут же больше проблем с малым объемом самого боеприпаса, в который больше топлива и взрывчатки уже просто не впихнуть.

        Разумеется, будь на то моя воля, я бы всем вертолётчикам велел одними "Гермес-А" стрелять (дальность в 15-18 км минимум, теоретически - и намного больше). Но не в нашей стране стоит печатный станок, выдающий "грязные зелёные бумажки" (с) Жирик

        Look at this matter from another, positive side: Earlier, our aircraft (including most recently, in Syria) used the old S-8s with their range of generally 3-4 km (the difference in range depends on the attack mode and carrier - but they flew up already specifically in the area of ​​action of possible MANPADS barmaley, without options), now - it can also hit from SIX km (twice as far!), and these NARs are already almost like S-13 in terms of impact.

        Is it really bad?

      По той же схеме точно так же модернизируют и НАР С-13 - модернизация будет называться "Монолитом". Но благодаря калибру и весу С-13, "Монолит" уже сделают управляемым (при его размерах это достаточно несложно). Делать же УР из С-8 - ну явно нецелесообразно. Дорого и при достаточно скромной БЧ. Вот как дешёвая НАР - "Бронебойщик" очень в тему, приближаясь по воздействию к старой С-13 (но при значительно большем числе ракет в пусковом блоке - у С-13 всего 5 ракет, у С-8 - 20 ракет).
      In general, the S-8 cool pumped. Rarely what kind of modernization so radically raises all the important performance characteristics.

          New launch blocks are required and all that.

              Unlike A10, the 30mm Su25 gun (Mi4P) is not a PT tool ....

              Так разница в парадигме создания/применения же. A10 и делали как "противотанковый штурмовик", во времена, когда Запад боялся советских танковых орд, рвущихся к Ла-Маншу. Т.е. он изначально делался с упором на нишевое применение. А "расчёску" создавали по концепции легендарного Ил-2 - фронтовой штурмовик общей поддержки войск.
              И думаю, если всё же начнётся "Большой Махач №3", Су-25 покажет себя значительно более универсальным и полезным, чем A10.

                Yes. I’m writing about the PT version. The A10 is a fixed 30mm unit, and the Su25 is 80mm NURS ....

    Of course, the S-8 retained the accuracy of the legendary RS of the Second World War. Flies to that steppe ... And some products are generally on a cunning trajectory but in the right direction. Well, this is for areal purposes, but for point targets there are other URS.

      Нет. Всему блоку НАТО не нравятся любые "крокодилы" - хоть с короткими крыльями, хоть с длинными.
      "Горбатых" "грачей" с "расчёсками" - все три слова в кавычках это разные прозвища Cу-25 - аналогично не любят. =3

    In the photo is not su25 but su25ub, not mi 24, but mi 35. it is unacceptably wrong to call the technique. And in general Ryabov’s articles are continuous graphomania. Endless repetitions, tedious exposition of facts. this is not permissible on this site!

      And what do you want, when every now and then by VO newsmen, these pearls are born: "В войска отправлена партия миномётов «Сани»".
      https://topwar.ru/171640-v-vojska-otpravlena-partija-minometov-sani.html
      Aффтар даже не различает собственно МИНОМЁТ 2Б11, и миномётный КОМПЛЕКС (который, действительно, как раз 2С12А "Сани" и называется, но в состав комплекса входит И 2B11, И wheel drive for him И "Урал"). Это только у хoхлов "голый" миномёт гордо имеет имя собственное - "Молот" (на деле - испорченный как раз советский 2Б11).
      The correct news title should be: "В войска отправлена партия миномётных комплексов «Сани»".

      А это "Как и в случае с другими НАР, эта проблема решается путем применения современных систем управления оружием. Значительная часть ударных самолетов ВКС России уже получила прицельно-навигационный комплекс СВП-24 «Гефест», обеспечивающий рост точности неуправляемых вооружений."
      And here Hephaestus and NAR? The author is not even aware that Hephaestus is used for free-falling bombs?

    Confused by the name. Armor-piercing armor. Thought the leading concrete-cumulative cumulative mastered. But no. Why then is such a name deceiving?

      Because they now have a really penetrating high-explosive fragmentation. Old S-8s, for example, Afghan duvals did not actually penetrate, it was necessary to crush them with aviation cannons for a long time, or use S-13. In addition, the penetration of lightly armored vehicles is claimed (i.e., upon the fact of everything that is not MBT, TBMP or BMPT).

        The term armor-piercing means overcoming at least some armor. That's why he was puzzled. And against concrete was with 8 BM which punched half a meter of concrete. There were many modifications. And cumulative as well.

    Чудесно: то другие ("тупые") достигают путём разработки сложных управляемых ракет, будет достигнуто путём модернизации неуправляемой ракеты 40-ых годов! Хитро. Всё-таки вопрос: сколько самолёто-вылетов понадобится для попадания в один танк? А ночью? А при боковом ветре?

      Family S-8 is the development of the 40s? And I still thought that this was the end of the 60s.
      And since when did a rocket from a fragmentation warhead become intended to destroy tanks?

    Well, nothing is new under the moon. In the sense of general. We open Google and look for information about the CANADIAN NURS CRV-7 which has several warhead options including (ATTENTION), Penetrating concrete-piercing, and to the heap and anti-tank flechetnaya, and at the same time semi-armor-piercing high explosive incendiary - RA-70 \ 79 HEISAP. Moreover, already in 2008, a variant of this NURS with a semi-active laser fuel was developed, so the new version of the S-80 is nothing more than a variation on the theme of a 30+ year old Canadian NURS. And the Germans made the PKRny Nurs with a semi-armor-proof warhead optimized against ships. HEISAP (Raufoss Ammunisjonsfabrikker). Information is all from open sources.

      А чего в этой новости "не имеющего аналогов в мире" вроде ничего такого и не заявляется.... Для старой дешёвой и маленькой ракетки сделали новый двигатель и БЧ, летает дальше и точнее, могущество выше, дешевизна для производства десятками тыщ осталась...
