Shown how the British Marines went on boarding with jetpacks

On Friday, the United States Naval Institute (USNI) released an eye-catching video showing the British Royal assault team. fleetsimulating boarding of ships from the air thanks to the use of jetpacks.


The duration of the flight of the Marines in this equipment is said to be eight minutes. Five miniature jet engines are used as the power plant: four of them are strapped to the arms and one is located on the back. The drives, generating 1000 hp, can reach speeds of 88,5 km / h. According to the video, the flight in the backpack looks confident enough, allowing you to make an accurate landing on the deck.

As explained in the USNI, the tests were to demonstrate the possibility of using the specified equipment for "mass landing and boarding of ships." Moreover, Special Operations Command is currently evaluating a jetpack that could potentially "reach speeds in excess of 200 miles [322 km] per hour."

The satchel was manufactured by the British startup Gravity Industries headquartered in Salisbury. Its founder and part-time inventor Richard Browning has repeatedly publicly demonstrated the possibilities of his creation.

                С every year every week, air defense systems against small and unmanned aircraft are getting better and better. There are ALREADY automatic homing rapid-fire turrets. Actually, the problem of such turrets is only in the power of the control computer and software, they are still expensive and not optimal. And the optics and drives are already quite advanced and cheap.

      Yes, very harsh, a flyer stuffed with fuel. One "miss" and it will be severely severe. So far, these are entertainment shows and promotions. The British still cannot substantiate it in practice, then the rescuers need it, then the doctors, now the military. Fuel is enough for an average of 5 min. Weighs 30kg. Until the harsh reality there is like before Mars. The beginning was laid back in the 60s and they still do not fly away, well, think of another 50 years they fly until something intelligible comes out. No, I'm not laughing, just healthy skepticism. Here it is faster and more practical to bring an air taxi to mind. At least the dimensions give relative freedom in design.

      What is one advantage of this suit in a combat situation? A fun target?
      Comparison with a drone? Well yes. The operator of this suit can be in the air for hours? And in the event of the liquidation of the drone, the operator remains alive, and here it is just the perfect suicide technique.

          Have you ever heard of geopolitics? Well, to what extent should the degree of hostility among the countries-buyers of raw materials in Europe be brought, so that they abandon the somewhat cheaper Russian raw materials in favor of the more expensive ones from the USA, the Middle East and other distant producers.

          Even Turkey follows the path of a reasonable Europe and refuses Russian gas. In 2019-20, Gazprom's supplies to the Turkish market fell just catastrophically.
          If back in March last year, Russia, with a share of almost 33%, was the leader in gas exports to the Turkish market, then in March this year it dropped to the fifth position.

          Azerbaijan (23,5% share) and Iran (14,2%) have already bypassed Russia in pipeline supplies to Turkey, and Qatar (20%) and Algeria (13,7%) in terms of liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplies. Thus, in March Russia dropped to fifth place in the list of the largest gas suppliers to Turkey from first place a year earlier. In addition, the United States caught up with Russia in exporting its LNG to Turkey. In March, US supplies of liquefied gas to Turkey increased by 300% yoy - their share reached 9,4%.

            1. If you please write nonsense, dear. Yes, your dear Poland in 2019 increased the purchase of Russian gas at a record. Excuse me, sir, won't it be difficult for you to provide data on the share of Russian gas in the European market? Perhaps then you would not be so categorical.
            2. Turkey has already been analyzed on this site by numbers, contracts and suppliers, therefore, the second time to do this, do not blame me, I will not. Everything is much simpler - the drop in the volume of gas purchases by Turkey is primarily due to the drop in its production and domestic consumption. It is easy to see this by comparing the delta of the decrease in the volume of domestic gas and the delta of consumption for other suppliers, and then opening and comparing with the data on the dynamics of domestic consumption.

      Should you bother with hitting on the fly? Let him sit on the deck, all the same, the turbines are dangling on his hands, and to shoot this "Carlson" you must first throw off these shackles. The speed of movements and maneuvers on the deck of the ship are also limited due to the knapsack behind the back, which probably has a lot of weight. And somehow it turns out that this flight turns out in one direction because fuel supply is limited not by hours but by minutes of flight. So if this pribluda is used in hostilities, then you can make a verdict "Not only everyone will be able to reach the enemy ship, few will be able to leave it."(almost Klitschko)
      P / S / -Although, it must be admitted, this stray has prospects at least for use in case of emergency and emergency situations, when the victims can be planted with some items, medicines, products to ensure survival, while the main operation to rescue them is being developed and carried out.

          The main problem of this device is its limited fuel supply, and accordingly a small power reserve, which in turn limits the list of tasks performed, especially in the military sphere. It is not for this that the military of the whole world was carried away by the creation of shock drones to "pilot" a bunch of small turbines with limited functionality.
          For bearded homeless people, this is certainly a dream, tk. they would use these devices to "carlsonize" their suicide bombers, but this dream is dear to them.

          A container for weapons will be attached to it, the mass will be increased, so you will have to make at least a skeleton reinforced with a suit, the mass has increased again, respectively, the turbines are more powerful, respectively, the tanks are larger and what happened, the plane?

      This knapsack is already a lot of years old, and it has not moved further than the same form factor. Now he is being promoted, but it all looks childish. If you want to advertise better, show your plans for the future where at least a bit you can see the meaning of the existence of this knapsack in military terms.
      Now it is noisy (very), bulky, difficult to control, dangerous (to pierce the engine, tank and flight to the wrong direction), it is not realistic to shoot with it now.
      Now, as if they do not even know where else to shove him in order to justify his far-fetched significance.

    For the third year I have been on YouTube watching them go there laughing There are more than enough jokes with this "flying" system!

    You will excuse me, of course, but I have been watching you for only a couple of years and I just can't understand ... Either you are a populist, whom the world has never seen, or hell knows who else, who "picked up inches" and mastered "OK Google on speed"...
    In addition to the fact that in each topic, you are like a "plug in every hole" with hellish populism, so also your judgments are caused not only by bewilderment, but simply, either laughter or tears.
    I recommend opening the NSD (instruction on shooting), section - shooting at air targets and choose what you like best: shooting with a barrage method, escorting or parachutists ... devices, then pick up. Let me remind you that in addition to large-caliber guns and missiles, the Navy ships also have standard small arms for officers and sailors. Suddenly, huh !? ))
    But, I admit, as kamikaze people, this absurdity can be applied. Which, however, does not negate the work on them of the standard air defense systems of ships.
    So I imagine the command given on the ship: By the swarm glowing in the tellak and NVG and single targets of unknown garbage - FIRE! laughing

      Imagine the picture: these sacks of meat begin to pour onto the deck of the ship, simultaneously breaking everything for themselves, their hands. legs, and other breaking parts of the carcass. The crew looks and listens to this terrifying picture, with the crunching of bones and screams of pain from the attackers, they become despondent, plunged into universal anguish and surrender without a fight.
      The attackers, those who did not bleed or who are able to move independently, coming out of a fainting state, take defeat and again faint.

        the truth is, there are police trap networks, a very useful thing against such flying fighters. And it is not yet clear how they will shoot, if that. You can, of course, tar the enemy in hand-to-hand combat, like a pig, or even two opponents with two hands, but then what?

Just imagine the situation, and here is this pilot who flew (and even sat down without any problems). What can he other than say a couple of encouraging words? I do not understand where such a blind belief in incomprehensible goals comes from without trying to imagine such a situation.
        Now drones can do anything, and even do an evacuation. There is still a field not plowed, various kinds of applications. And here so far only entertainment, no more.

              A cannon shot from the destroyer. When they stop, hang everyone on the mast without trial. After that, be sure to go to the Somali coast and erase a couple of fishing villages and change a couple of leaders. One time is enough for the eyes. Diluted fashion - pay ransom, boarding, then put in a corner
              Well, now the technical side. The jet engine is hovering, and in general at a speed of less than 600 km per hour - this is called "mad with fat". When neither range nor duration is needed. Like all multicopters with tiny propellers. A toy, the use of which is more difficult to come up with than the toy itself. With the same success, you can look for the application of the Rubik's cube in sheep breeding.

                A cannon shot from the destroyer.

                Hostages? If a tanker is hijacked? Well, they shot under the nose (by the way, captured ships are often not on the move), the pirates showed you the middle finger. What do you suggest next? Shoot at the ship?
                When they stop, hang everyone on the mast without trial.

                After such episodes, the pirates are even less inclined to surrender. This is not to mention some legal ... hmm ... extremism of such actions.
                When neither range nor duration is needed.
                - for boarding or, say, storming a multi-storey building (skyscraper, industrial complex) - the range and duration are limited. The niche is narrow, but not superfluous.

                  After such episodes, pirates will disappear as a "profession". They seize hostages with the ship for ransom. If instead of a ransom there is a guaranteed gallows plus the destruction of the settlements from where they "sailed", then who needs such a "profession"? Yes, their own leaders-masters will strangle them before they "sail" to work.

          In general, there are similar systems in Russia. The question is different. The difference is in design. In the West, they create technology, and then they think about where to apply it. In Russia, the opposite is true. Therefore, the impression is created in the lag. It's just that in Russia the task is set before its implementation. So it is. And so the system is cool, but crude. When such systems will not take away the attention of the pilot to maintain stabilization in flight, then you should envy. Until then, this is just another easy target.

        Mountain shooters, unexpected landing on a steep coast from the water, assault groups in multi-storey buildings. I think that many more options can be found, but the question is that we must look not at the current moment, but at the future. To understand whether there is a possibility of a breakthrough in development, no. Understand for which parts - MTR, AC, this is applicable, etc. Of course, you shouldn't rush to copy, but if you can assume that the development is promising, you should have at least R&D on this topic.

          All this assumes high-speed movement, because the wunderwolf is still noisy, and slowly and sadly you won't get to the place of the battle on it, they will be shot down like in a dash. This means that you will need an intelligent autopilot, sensors and cameras, as well as the ability to quickly enter data into the autopilot. Well, or something like a cruise control that corrects pilot errors and overshoots.

    Potentially interesting device, which however is very limited due to the known achieved limits of efficiency of fuel pairs and the degree of sophistication of engines. This means that there will be a rather serious framework limiting the flight range of such infantrymen (and probably the speed). Also, everything goes to the fact that in the need to fight drones, defense systems will be largely automated (and the EPR of a person with such bells and whistles, like the "heat trace" from 5 engines, leave much to be desired) - which will have a deplorable effect on the actual "boarding" of everything more or less providing for defense.

    However, the idea of ​​using these devices in some point special operations is very interesting. Also (possibly) it will be useful for placing snipers in hard-to-reach positions, personal evacuation of especially important subjects, etc.

    Interesting application
    There is not enough automation of flight, so that the movement is along a stable minimum trajectory in the form of one jump from side to side.
    Again, helicopter boarding is reliable. And safe
    The border guards will come in handy for disembarking the inspection group, it is clearly safer than jumping aboard the offender with the risk of life.
    As for the fact that you can't shoot at the time of the jump, they'll cover them with fire from their side, if necessary, it's more reliable than shooting when landing.
    When revised, it will get a lot of use.
    In principle, control technologies have long been developed on drones - with distance control, automatic flight trajectory control, stability and so on.
    You just need to bring all the necessary technologies into one whole.
    If the border guards and the military are interested, they will find money for revision.
    And the applications of the sea will be for short travels and rescue - a ready-made compact rescue vehicle.
    Firefighters will use the same for others.
    If brought to mind, of course.
