Debris called "flying razor" American rocket filmed

Debris called "flying razor" American rocket filmed

Recently, in the Syrian province of Idlib, an international coalition drone with the help of AGM-114R9X missiles destroyed an off-road vehicle of militants, as a result of which two members of the Al-Qaeda terrorist formation banned in Russia were destroyed.

The debris of the rockets was filmed on video and posted on Twitter. The Drive analyzed the video, which allows you to slightly open the veil of secrecy over this munition, the existence of which is in the arsenal of the United States Army has not yet been recognized.

This edition is considered by the publication to be the best of all currently existing.

The video was published three days after the destruction of the jeep with terrorists. On it you can clearly see at least three blades included in the design of the munition. Sphere-shaped pneumatic red batteries are also clearly visible. On a rocket, you can also consider its marking.

And although the US Department of Defense does not officially confirm the availability of the United States with this weapons, traces of the impact of a missile that does not have a warhead do not allow its existence to be kept secret.

The ammunition was developed based on the AGM-114 Hellfire missile. Instead of the standard design warhead, the AGM-114R9X has four or six retractable sword-shaped blades that activate when approaching an object.

Although the first mention of the new ammunition appeared a little over a year ago, there is reason to believe that these weapons have been used by Americans in Africa and Asia for at least three years. He has already received the unofficial names “ninja bomb” and “flying razor”.

The unusual design of the rocket allows you to use it to destroy the leaders of terrorists even in densely populated neighborhoods, without fear of casualties, because there is no explosive in the ammunition.

Impact accuracy is provided by semi-active laser guidance. Presumably, launches of such missiles are made from UAVs MQ-9 Reaper.

    Yeah. By inventing various "humane" products, minke whales stand out against the general background!

      Well, this product is really relatively humane - there are no related victims. Although the principle chosen is very unusual, if not symbolic.

      "Humane" ammunition does not exist in principle. But the successful use of such missiles by the US Air Force speaks volumes. At least the following points:
      - high efficiency of intelligence and search engines;
      - very high accuracy of the guidance system;
      - a high level of qualification of designers who developed systems and components of both a rocket and onboard equipment of carriers;
      - the desire to minimize the number of victims among third parties.

            And because such that the task was to go (oh!) The language of "import substitution", but Russian engineers are not Chinese and do not like monkeying.
            A smart leader would bless the teams for "development", discreetly slipping samples so that developers understand "how not to do" with a list of shortcomings, errors and flaws.
            Then we would have succeeded in EVERYTHING, and even better than in the wording "import substitution" - the parrot never got it right (that's why the Chinese still don't have an aircraft engine with a resource equal to ours and with the same thrust).

      Well, what do Trident's BGs reduce power from 475/150 to 5 kt, B-61 bombs are made with adjustable power, in the missiles they use kinetics, not 100-150 kg of explosives, now flying Hira-shuriken for 150 kT $. Well done Cheburashka.

        With a trident, this is thanks to Obama, leaving the States without tactical charges on long-range missiles.

          Invalid. ICBMs under $ 50+ million, and Ax 2500 km, for $ 1,5 million. Rather, a matter of time of arrival. 30-40 minutes and several hours.
          I have no doubt that they will make a couple of hundred BGs, universal.

            You are right, incomparably
            But Obama managed to destroy the couple of hundred Axes with tactical charges that remained in the States, so I had to redo it.
            A new cruise missile is already being designed.

    However, if the targeting system is so accurate that it aims this flying grinder right at the enemy's torso, why not replace those blades with bricks? Brick is more offensive. "Do you remember our leader? The Yankees killed him with a brick ..." Who wants to die not from the shaitan's flying daggers, but from a brick? There is also psychology ... winked

          With fat, that's right.
          If he dies with fat, then the option with the guria after death disappears for him.
          In general, I would start all weapons against Muslim theorists with fat, so that they all know, they will die in vain, they will not wait for them in paradise and the gurus will get another.

        Blades of pork fat can be lubricated. And the effect on the Muslim soul is the same, and will not rust during storage, and will not seize upon nomination. And it is imperative that this technical detail be made public so that Allah Babahs tremble.

    Impressive, you will not say anything. The budget modification of the common ammunition, the use of a long-flying drone. A truly effective weapon against ... radicals, and there are fewer casualties among civilians. It not only effectively kills the bad guys, but also creates less incentive to get more
