TOS-1A is a unique model for the world market, the only powerful means of fire support for short-range units in the world. Such equipment is not produced anywhere except Russia, and we proudly show it to our foreign partners. Due to its highest characteristics, TOS-1A is consistently included in the top 5 samples supplied by Rosoboronexport for the ground forces of customers

- said Mikheev, adding that the system has proven its effectiveness in battles with terrorists in the Middle East.

The TOS-1A heavy flamethrower system is in service with the Russian army and the armies of several foreign countries. Fighting vehicle at the base tank The T-72 has a launcher with 24 guide tubes of 220 mm caliber for launching unguided rockets with a thermobaric warhead. A full salvo is capable of destroying enemy forces in an area of ​​40 thousand square meters. The minimum firing range is 600 meters, the maximum is 6 km.

      So it is so ... It strains only from whose lips it is declared. Here is another saying - "each Kulik praises his swamp."
      The fact that this system takes place is unambiguous - and there will be work for it against the barmaley.
      Do you have statistics on purchases?

      This device is not for the kitchen (does not cook), but from a series of skillful pens ... A device for artistic burning ...

    I watched a video from Syria with the results of work on barmaley. More than impressive ... I won't describe it, but not for the faint of heart. Plus a good destructive effect on stone structures. BUT ... her firing range is too small. Not for a normal combined arms battle with an equal opponent. On the barmaley - just right. Otherwise, it will be opened in time and struck from a long range by anything ..

      The key moment is "opened in time".
      So everything can be attributed.
      The tool is highly mobile.
      Moved, fired a volley and redeployed.
      And it is possible to destroy anything, even a strategic bomber.

        They agree.
        Of course they do. After a couple - three volleys. And the footage, like the Turkish UAV "Akatsia" (with a much greater firing range) in the depths of the Syrian defense was burned - a confirmation of this. And as the return line was cut off, we agreed. Here is the task only in the first couple - the three volleys to survive, everything becomes more and more complicated. And then 6 km. range...

          These vehicles are not part of the vehicles that fire the first salvoes. This is the "squeeze" technique.
          It is necessary to clear the bridgehead - ask the flamethrowers. TOS will arrive - there will be silence,))))) to a depth of 3 meters underground.

      Apparently the concept was influenced by technical capabilities, as a combination of power, accuracy and range.

      Michael! And he DOES NOT NEED a long firing range! It is for counter-battery firing and is not intended - there are other means for this (MLRS and barrel art). This system is for suppressing well-fortified enemy strongpoints (company and battalion level), with minefields of concrete or stone fortifications, air defense systems (MANPADS and MZA). Such points cannot be taken "outright" without great losses, but here "Solntsepek" is what the doctor ordered. Preparation of data for firing is greatly simplified, no adjustment is needed (it hits almost directly), and therefore very fast. 1 volley (10-15 seconds) and on an area of ​​4 hectares - even cockroaches will not survive!
      Well, for long ranges - there is "Smerch" and "Tornado-S" (also with thermobars).

      And what exactly can be affected by Solntsepek in a combined arms battle?

    And again on the question of "Soviet galoshes", in this case about TOS-1A "Solntsepёk".
    They knew how to invent, knew how to develop, knew how to do.
    Let the old ones, let the Soviet ones. But how they are worn. Do not carry them.
    And in the store Rosoboronexport queue for our "galoshes" from foreign customers.

      They knew how, and even now they seem to have begun something .. The cars are plain-looking, but don't worry about the power of your mother .. Simplicity and reliability and firepower, that's our trick has always been .. hi

      The USSR did not bring TOC to mind. Even in Russia, there were big problems with this model, even in the Second Chechen TPS they worked through a stump into a deck, missiles regularly began to somersault and go off the trajectory, including towards their units.

      So put your finger to the sky.

      TOS was made an effective model of weapons in Russia.

    - the best selling is understandable.
    - brings a lot of income is also understandable (for example, it is not sold very much, but expensive)
    - there is a queue behind it, again it is clear. (Want to buy more than production allows)
    - discussed, also like a clear definition
    .
    Popular? Not very clear.

    She wouldn’t come in! Barmaleev divorced - darkness is dark! Try to dig them out of underground shelters without this technique!
