The system of remote installation of mines "Agriculture": creatively approached the name

46

In Russia, the final stage of testing the new multiple launch rocket system "Agriculture", designed for remote installation of mines. Remote Mining Engineering System (ISDM) includes combat and transport-loading vehicles, as well as transport and launch containers.


Transport and launch containers contain engineering ammunition that meets the requirements of the Geneva Convention regarding their subsequent self-destruction.

The combat vehicle is a volley fire system with fifty guides of 122 mm caliber. It is capable of using various types of mines: both anti-personnel and anti-tank. Before the salvo set flight mission and parameters for the self-destruction of ammunition.

The range of the "Agriculture" is 5-15 kilometers, which allows mining in the safest and most maneuverable way at a remote distance.

The developer of the new technology is the NPO Splav.

It is also known that a combat vehicle can install mines of a new generation. Perhaps we are talking about the "smart" mines POM-3, which were reported back in 2016. Thanks to a special electronic filling, such mines are able to recognize targets and work only when necessary. For example, they ignore animals and vehicles and respond only to humans.

KamAZ vehicles with armored cabs equipped with air filtration and ventilation systems, as well as air conditioners, are used as a chassis for “Agriculture”.

For the first time, the system was officially unveiled on June 24 at the parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory, which took place in Moscow on Red Square. Two combat and two transport-loading vehicles took part there. But even before that, “Agriculture” could be observed during rehearsals.

Now the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are armed with universal mine-clearances (UMZ) based on the chassis of ZIL-131 vehicles, the maximum radius of which is 100 meters. There is also a helicopter mining system VSM-1 based on Mi-8, which can be used from a height of not more than 150 meters.

In the 70s, on the basis of MLRS Grad and Hurricane already tried to create a similar system with a range of up to 30 kilometers, but it was ineffective due to low accuracy and high cost of ammunition.

The team of authors, in terms of name, approached the process creatively. According to some reports, the "agrarian" theme prevailed initially. For example, the Sower option was proposed. But in the end, the remote mining system became "Agriculture."

    As of 2017, China and Russia are opposed to restrictions on anti-tank mines, such as requiring that such mines be deactivated on their own. Yes, here you go and you will not find obese up to three centners of citizens, but the Americans should not wander in such fields.

            Unfortunately, gunners cannot land mines quickly. For it is necessary to defuse the installation, to put cluster munitions with mines, and only then launch

                But apparently the sappers were able to break through a normal installation, and not the "budget option"

                KamAZ, of course, is annoying as a "base", but the combat efficiency due to the much shorter loading time of the ISDM will be much higher
                Just compare, which is faster, install two transport and launch containers with a crane, or manually charge 50 missiles one at a time.


                Apparently, the Alloy’s developments in the field of promising MLRS, “slaughtered” under Medvedev-Serdyukov in favor of Tornado-G and Tornado-S, went to the complex

                    Perhaps this is an optical illusion, but if not, the Tornado will not be able to properly apply the PC to ISDM

                      Thanks for the clarification. And let the last question. Grad was criticized as a production mines for low efficiency. 5 anti-personnel. Or 3 anti-tank. In this sense, tornado was recognized much more effectively. What do you think, besides, in the new product, Agriculture, they used a caliber that was previously criticized?

                        "Grads" shoot a division. 40 x 3 x 18 = 2160 anti-tank mines in a salvo

                        In addition, if my vision does not deceive me, and the guides are really longer, then there will be more mines in the warhead.

    The reason most likely is that these machines will be with engineers, not with artillerymen. Those. no need to distract artillery from their important tasks.

      A bit wrong.
      Gunners will use remote mining. But only for planned purposes.
      A system of sappers will be used to solve suddenly arising tasks.

      As an example, an advancing enemy column was discovered. It is necessary to give the infantry time to engage in unprepared defense. On the way to advance the enemy, they quickly create mining sites that will delay him. Including such sections will help artillery and aircraft to hit him on the march.

    Questions arise for those who are not ,, Copenhagen ,, in the difference between the MLRS and the remote mining system! The common between them can be ... for example, the same type of mines. ! But in the remote mining system, there may be a relatively small rocket engine for ,, Eres ,, and, accordingly, a larger number of mines ... A variant of the “Roman candle” is also possible! Perhaps the presence of shorter guides, but in more of them! ....

            For an engineering system of remote mining, 15 km is a bit much ... all the more if we consider that engineering systems of remote mining like PU with tubular guides can have a range of, scatter, min of several hundred meters. ! .... 5 km for a remote mining system, in my opinion, ,, red ,, distance!

        Well, something we can think of ourselves. Knowing the caliber, the number of trunks, the length of the TPK, you can estimate the number of mines in a salvo. Taking a normal density, you can estimate the area of ​​the "beds". And vice versa - having estimated the KVO by 15 km. (it’s unlikely that there is something supernovae) you can determine the area, and from here look at the density.

    SKB of the Minsk Tractor Plant, which in Soviet times developed the chassis for the famous Tunguska, together with other Belarusian enterprises developed in the early 90s a similar mine layer based on this chassis.
    Russia refused to supply these chassis in those years and it was necessary to find a new niche for their use. If the design of the chassis and the mounted weapons didn’t plan anything new compared to the mine barriers existing at that time, the control system for the chassis and the process of laying mines was conceived as purely digital and was developed on the basis of the A15 BTsVM and displays used in fighter aircraft, for example, in SU27 aircraft.
    This made it possible to abandon almost all the gauge devices and indicators previously used on the Tunguska chassis by replacing them with two multifunction displays (driver and commander), to ensure high-quality planning of minefields, to set mines for various purposes in strict accordance with approved plans, and also to create a base data on these obstacles with the coordinates of the obstacle zones and other data useful for future use, including clearance of the barriers placed. This was then considered highly relevant because some types of landmines, including anti-personnel mines, were very difficult to detect using methods known at the time. The same system made it possible to provide all the necessary data to the driver and commander in the process of checking the functioning of the chassis units and mounted weapons, to monitor the chassis units and its coordinates in the movement process and to protect these units from the "fool" ie from those control modes of the chassis that could lead to its failure. It was emphasized that the last of the listed functions is very important since an inexperienced driver could easily enough bring an expensive and very complex chassis to a "heart attack" and even to a "premature death." Naturally, the commander had access to all the information that the driver had on his display and could cancel all restrictions if necessary.
    How the development ended is unknown to me. I just know that a similar development was carried out in the interests of the Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant for installation on multi-axle heavy tractors and was introduced (albeit in a truncated and simplified form) on some of these tractors

    And the idea of ​​the name is not so new. In certain circles, the definition of “mining as if planting potatoes” has long been common.
