"Long-range cannon shooting up to Moscow": the USA told about the new weapon

97

In the United States, they talked about the emergence of an ultra-long-range gun, with which the Americans will be able to "shoot to Moscow." Pentagon Dreams were voiced by Popular Mechanics magazine.


An article by a well-known American publication is about the SLRC (Strategic Long Range Cannon) ultra-long-range cannon, which is to be put into service with the US Army in the near future. For the first time, the world press learned about the newest weapons United States in 2019. The gun was taken to the Yuma military training ground in Arizona.

It is there that for another 2,5 years, until 2023, its combat capabilities will be tested.



The Pentagon expects that the use of the SLRC cannon in a modern armed conflict will pave the way for a subsequent offensive by ground forces. The first in case of war will be hit by an ultra-long-range gun, and from positions inaccessible to a potential enemy.

Strategic Long Range Cannon target - Russia and China


As for the intended goals of the new gun, there is no doubt - first of all, these are military and industrial facilities in China and Russia. In this regard, it is easy to predict the territories where the new cannon can be deployed. Firstly, this is South Korea, which is considered by the United States as the most important springboard for action against the PRC in the event of a hypothetical Sino-American military conflict. From the same bridgehead it will be possible to attack the Far East.

Secondly, this is Poland and the three "Baltic sisters" - Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, from whose territory it is theoretically possible to strike at the largest and most important cities of Russia - Moscow and St. Petersburg, as well as Belarus. Considering that both Poland and the Baltic countries are members of the North Atlantic Alliance, the American military department will not have any problems with the deployment of weapons on their territory. Moreover, the "hotheads" from these countries can themselves beg the Americans to place the latest cannon on their territory, giving little thought to the fact that in response to shelling from an ultra-long-range cannon, Russia can deliver a much more serious blow.

In the magazine Popular Mechanics, however, are called other ways to use the latest gun. For example, according to American experts, the appearance of such a gun could give an impetus to the revival of the class of ships in the US Navy, similar to the battleships of the "Montana" type, which were planned to be built during the Second World War. In the case of installing a gun on such ships, the American Navy would have the opportunity to shell the northern Russian territories from the North Sea, and it is possible that the Russian capital would also be under threat.

A battleship in the Indian Ocean would target the territories of Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia. It goes without saying that in the Pacific Ocean the DPRK and China could be fired upon. At the same time, in order to be inaccessible for a retaliatory strike, the ships would be placed at a safe distance from the Korean and Chinese coasts, possibly behind Japan.

What is a cannon


But what is such a hyped gun? The SLRC has a distant similarity in its design to the American 280-mm M65 cannon, designed back in the 1950s and designed to fire nuclear projectiles at a distance of up to 36 kilometers. Most likely, the SLRC projectile will have a two-stage jet engine. The gun will be able to serve 8 people, each artillery battery will have 4 guns.

Meanwhile, how can we not recall the famous super-gun of Hitler's Germany "Dora". The Wehrmacht also pinned great hopes on her during the assault on Sevastopol. But история its use is beautifully summarized in the words of the then Chief of the General Staff of the Wehrmacht, Colonel General Franz Halder:

A real work of art, but useless.

In the end, Field Marshal Erich von Manstein, who admitted in his memoirs that the effect of using a supergun could not justify the high costs of its creation, spoke a little softer, but in about the same vein.

It is possible that in modern conditions the American project will not become a serious threat to potential opponents of the United States. Another thing is that one should not underestimate the PR component in creating a new weapon, as well as the manufacturer's desire to receive additional funding.

            Since when has Nevada become an "out of reach object?" laughing Anyway. Even from the Baltic states, one gun and even an artillery battery, in our time, is nothing. As practice has shown, in the event of a full-scale conflict, artillery is good only with massive use. As it was during the Great Patriotic War (especially in the second half of the war), when in some cases, the saturation of the guns was 250-500 guns per kilometer of the front. Hacked any defense. Although, in our time, barrel artillery, for the most part, is replaced by MLRS.

    In fact, a rocket fired from the barrel of a cannon. What is the advantage over conventional missiles? The estimated range is 1600-1800 km. Bypass the INF Treaty? So there is no this treaty already.

        The cannon shells on Zamvolta, with a range of just over 100 km, turned out to be under a million dollars, and the topic was closed.
        The transport system (like Iskander) has a plus - it launched 2 missiles and drove away from the counter-battery float.
        And then what? Satellite Guidance? Why a barrel?
        Not otherwise, there is nothing to frighten China, so they are trying their last bit.

            A bit wrong:
            the requirement of the US army is to keep the cost of one shot of this weapon in the range of no more than 400-500 thousand dollars.
            © bmpd
            That is, 400-500 kilobax is only the customer's requirement. And what will turn out in real life - no one knows.
            And second: when comparing with the "tomahawk" it would be nice to take into account not only the cost, but also the mass of explosives delivered to the target. And then suddenly it turns out that instead of one "ax" you need three or four missile shells. smile

              In real life, this is what:
              Due to the reduction in the estimated number of ships of this series, the cost of one projectile has increased to $ 800 thousand, and taking into account the depreciation and operating costs of the destroyer itself, one shot can cost the budget up to $ 2 million.

              It has been known for a long time:

                There was also a good example of an infantry fighting vehicle for the marines - EFV - when a reduction in the volume of purchases led to the fact that the BMP began to cost as a pair of Abrams (after which the program was closed).

          At one time there was an anecdotal incident at the construction of the Ararat cement plant. The installers enlarged the chimney (approximately 400mm diameter and 30m length). Due to the lack of a large crane, they began to lift it using the falling chevre method. It was about five kilometers to the border with Turkey, the pipe was laid towards the border. We started lifting the pipe according to the attached diagram.

          They just raised the commercials by 15 degrees, in Turkey there is panic, alarm, calls. After a while, our border guards arrived: - What are you doing here? The Turks are calling that the Armenians are here preparing a huge cannon for a shot! laughing

      With this cannon, the projectile will be fired into the upper layers of the troposphere and glide from there thanks to the deploying wings, essentially turning into a kind of guided warhead - so it will overcome 1600 - 1800 kilometers GPS guidance, gas-dynamic rudders control. The advantage of low cost compared to the CD and MRBM is the ease of deployment and transportation, and even for air defense missile defense such projectiles will pose a big problem both in detection and interception.

        Very controversial. The price of the projectile will be comparable to missiles, medium-range missiles put on a wheel drive will be easier to deploy, transport and much more maneuverable. Air defense / missile defense is more complicated, but they do not cope well with ballistic and quasi-ballistic missiles.
        They are developing medium-range hypersonic missiles LRHW, "on paper" it will be more effective.

          "Very controversial. The price of the shell will be comparable to missiles, medium-range missiles put on a wheel drive will be easier to deploy, transport and much more maneuverable." A medium-range missile costs at least $ 10 million, a Tomahawk missile 3 million - a 280 millimeter projectile will cost around a million dollars, and yes, this gun will also have its own tractor and a wheeled carriage support - the platform in a combat position, the support carriage will simply be lowered onto the ground. It will not be necessary to lift it even from the tractor, which in turn will ensure its mobility is in no way inferior to mobile ground missile systems.

            There can be no talk of any reduction in cost, since when firing from barrel artillery, a projectile is affected by 3-4 orders of magnitude greater overloads than when using missiles (from 3 to 20 thousand g). Consequently, the GOS will be more expensive, all structural elements will have to be made stronger and heavier, which will require a greater mass of fuel. And the gain in reducing the thrust impulse is not significant - for full-caliber barrel systems, the initial speed limit is 1000-1200 m / s, and for shooting at 1850 km, a speed of 2700-3000 m / s is needed, i.e. the projectile's own impulse after exiting the bore should be at the level of 200s., which means either a decrease in the payload to 5-10% of its mass, or the use of a two-stage scheme (that Frankenstein still comes out - a two-stage active-rocket projectile - even it's scary to imagine), and most importantly, to get the same 1000-1200m / s initial speed, just one more jet stage with a mass even less than that of the "projectile" is enough. At the same time, there are no problems with the strength of the structure during acceleration in the bore, with restrictions on the size of the ammunition, with the effect of powder gases and acceleration in the barrel on the TTRD fuel, and many other possible problems.

    All this is easy. This cannon can fire, as in a triple jump, several times with one projectile. She shoots for the first time, the projectile remains in the muzzle, and the cannon flies. Then she fires a second time and continues to carry the projectile. Finally, she fires a third time, and they separate. The cannon returns to its starting position. The projectile hits its intended purpose and after the explosion, is collected into atoms and returns to the barrel of the gun. After a slight cooling down, the gun at this time looks for a target and starts triple flight in a new way. As the detective sang in one cartoon, that she was sent somewhere and sent often.

    Frankly crazy idea. The resource of the barrel is enough for a very modest number of shots, each of which, in general, starts to influence the accuracy of the subsequent ones pretty cool. The barrel itself will come out VERY massive and expensive, replacing it will be a big hemorrhoid. The rate of fire, due to the large overloads, will not be very much, therefore, it will be necessary to increase the number of barrels (and the mass of the installation itself or the number of platforms). If the projectile is also a two-stage rocket, then the projectile will be expensive, and the requirements for the diameter of the barrel and the removal of air from it before firing will further complicate and increase the cost of the project. The requirements for electronics and projectile design will also be higher than those for conventional missiles. The installation itself in terms of dimensions will be at the level of a soil complex with a heavy ballista. missile (and at a cost, probably no less) - therefore, the issues of adequate camouflage and concealment of massive movements of such complexes are a very dubious undertaking.

    Even a cursory glance at this issue is enough to avoid considering such a weapon as something really serious. The issue of fast transportation of such monsters would bury the European logistics of NATO, the issue of making a sufficient amount would cost a pretty penny (out of proportion to the possibilities) for the American taxpayers. About two-stage missiles for these toys, which (probably) provide for the option of equipping a nuclear warhead (and their price), it is generally better to remain silent, there would be pitch economic darkness.

      Tomahawk now costs more than 3 million - so what if a gliding projectile of 280 mm caliber with GPS guidance will definitely not cost more, I think in the region of 700 thousand it will fit per shot.

        What makes you think that this is a gliding projectile? The nearest point is 600 km from the Baltic to Moscow, and 460 km from Ukraine. Until such weapons were invented, and the material says that it is practically a rocket.
        Most likely, the SLRC projectile will have a two-stage jet engine.

        Knowing the Americans, it won't be cheap!

        Tomahawk is now worth more than 3 million

        From where infa do not share
        ... The estimated cost of the rocket in 2014 was $ 1,45 million.

        This is Vicki writes, but other sources can be counted.
        On October 7, 2001, the United States launched Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan in response to the September 11 attacks. It began with missile and bomb attacks on Kabul and Kandahar. On the first day, about 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles ($ 70,5 million) were fired at them.

        On March 19, 2011, the United States and Great Britain fired cruise missiles from ships in the Mediterranean Sea into Libya. According to the coalition, more than 110 Tomahawk missiles ($ 155,1 million) were fired at targets. This was the beginning of the military operation "The Beginning of the Odyssey", which lasted until the end of March 2011.

        On the night of April 7, 2017, the US military fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian airfield in Shayrat in Homs province. Based on the average price for a missile, this strike could cost the Americans $ 83 million.

        And also $ 3 mil doesn't work .............

          What makes you think that this is a gliding projectile - a rocket of 280 mm caliber at a distance of 1600 - 1800 kilometers will not fly away for this you need a healthy TTRD according to this scheme with a shot into the upper atmosphere from a cannon with an active jet engine and expanding aerodynamic wings for planning will provide the indicated flight range of this projectile.

    It is possible that in modern conditions the American project will not become a serious threat to potential opponents of the United States. Another thing is that one should not underestimate the PR component in creating a new weapon, as well as the manufacturer's desire to receive additional funding.

    Article reprint from bpmd, there is at least more information)))
    As for the conclusions about the manufacturer's desire, this is understandable. But the shells will come out brilliant, more expensive than for Zumvolt, for this reason they were blocked))
    Since funding comes from different budgets, they decided to strain the warriors))) and so on in a circle!

      This cannon is a very serious thing, in fact, since it can be used to launch not only conventional and nuclear-powered aeroballistic gliding projectiles, but microsatellites into orbit, say, to restore the communication grouping during a cosmic nuclear explosion, without using any cosmodromes or rockets from anywhere in the world even from ships and such shells are a real cheap alternative to cruise missiles and IRBMs, and as for the dimensions of the gun itself, it is hardly much larger than the dimensions of the T 131 gun, it can be transported by C-17 Globemaster III and C-5 Galaxy.

    The only way to shoot this far is to throw the projectile vertically from the barrel
    almost into space, where it will turn on the rocket engine, which will take it 1000 miles.

    There is an inverse relationship between the projectile launch angle and the flight range l (), but only in the range of angle values ​​from 50 to 80 degrees, and in the range of angle values ​​from 10 to 45 degrees, a direct relationship was found l ().
    The greatest range is reached at 45 degrees.

      Your comment has nothing to do with the topic of discussion. The declared "super-duper gun" is just a catapul device for missiles, the engine of which is supposed to be launched already at a distance of less than ten kilometers from the place of the shot. Rockets with a ramjet engine, no ballistic trajectories are provided.
      The cost of the shot is expected to exceed 1 million dead presidents. Cruise missiles cost the same, you can launch them in volleys of hundreds of units ... In short, they will play around and put them in a museum, like Zumwalt.

    One thing is not clear to me in all this crap ... it is clear that it is basically impossible to shoot a ballistic projectile at such a distance. Accordingly, this "cannon" shoots with the same active-rocket projectile (and even two-stage) - i.e. actually a rocket. Than then this monster is better than the usual OTP with the fact that OTP at least does not require such a monstrous platform. Those. Who is this garbage in the end designed for?
