The Ministry of Defense began modernization of the TOS-1A "Solntsepёk" heavy flamethrower system

The Russian Ministry of Defense has begun modernizing the TOS-1A "Solntsepek" heavy flamethrower system. The work is carried out by enterprises of the military-industrial complex as part of the implementation of the state defense order. This was reported by the press service of the military department.


As noted in the Ministry of Defense, the modernization will increase the range and accuracy of fire, the area of ​​destruction and reduce the consumption of ammunition. In addition, the upgraded vehicles will have increased protection against anti-tank weapons. Details of the work carried out are not provided.

Industrial enterprises, within the framework of serial production, are carrying out work on the modernization of BM-1 combat vehicles of the TOS-1A heavy flamethrower system

- said in a statement.

The fact that the Ministry of Defense intends to modernize TOS-1 "Buratino" and TOS-1A "Solntsepek" was reported in early November last year.

As explained in the military department, the modernization was required due to the change in tasks for the TOS and the growing range. The modernized vehicles will receive modern digital communication facilities, as well as equipment for a closed data transmission segment, which will allow them to be integrated into automatic control systems (ACS) of the tactical level. In addition, long-range ammunition from TOS-1 (Tosochka) will be adapted for TOS-1 and TOS-2A, thereby increasing the range of TOS to 15 km instead of the currently available 6 km.

At present, the RChBZ is armed with about a hundred heavy flamethrower systems of two modifications: TOS-1 "Buratino" based on tank T-72 and improved TOS-1A "Solntsepek" on the T-90 chassis. All existing vehicles will be upgraded.

        Like the Grad and Tornado G. They do not fight alone.

          Then what was the point of fencing "Tosochka", in the presence of the Grad and Tornado-G and the TOS itself? TOS is useful as an assault weapon, but "Tosochka" is strictly barmaley without means of reconnaissance and a little bit of artillery to spread rot. Although the same barmaley, only with money, you can probably sell it.

            Hail or Tornado G, in principle, cannot endure an enemy stronghold prepared for defense. TOS-1 must be brought into the enemy's anti-tank defense zone. Well, sell, of course, too. On a wheeled chassis and with a firing range of 15 km, an entry will be sold to all southern mumblers.

                    You can plow the Acacia too, but if the enemy has military air defense from UAVs, the question is in the time and money spent.

                      If the enemy has this, then there are reconnaissance and strike assets, because of which "Tosochka" has every chance of not reaching the line of application. TOS-1 are at least suitable for ground attack.

                      It's not about military air defense. If the troops stumbled upon, in the process of advancing, a strong point. It is best to plow it with MLRS. As junior subordination as possible, so as not to make calls far away. The hail is almost perfect. Acacia will take a lot of time and they can write off her counter-battery.

              What is this PTO, with a range of 5-6 km (the initial TOC range)? And in the article, in general, the possibility of using modernized power supplies with a range of 15 km is indicated.

                The initial range of TOS-1 "Buratino" is 3 km. I was present at the shooting when they wanted to write off this type of weapon, because did not find a scope.

        And you look at her photo, maybe you will see an armored box on the sides of the PU package. To protect the ammunition at the Buratina, the extreme launch tubes were left unloaded. And the range is 15 km. suggests that the firing positions at the "Solntsepek" will now be at the same distance from the forward edge as the cannon artillery.

            Where will the enemy's anti-tank weapons come from in the near rear? The firing range of "Tosochka" is 15 km.
            Like the D-30.
            That is, its positions will be at the same distance from the forward edge as the positions of the cannon artillery.

            Not on the cockpit, but on the sides of the launcher package - to protect against shrapnel and small arms, to protect the AMMUNITION from detonation in the event of a shrapnel hit.

            Since both will now have one ammunition with a range of 15 km. , then they will be able to fire from the near rear zone. Neither tanks, nor ATGMs, nor PTOs will be able to fire at them.
            Is that saboteurs.
            Do you understand what I mean?
            Their only difference now is in the wheel and tracked base. The troops need both those and these. One can quickly transfer over long distances without attracting additional. vehicles, others will pass through any terrain and more convenient in the zone of intense fire resistance.

              Did the D-30 just go into service? Or maybe the enemy has something more subtle and powerful, like Msta, for example? Or do we need to suppress something in the depths of the defense, about 10 kilometers from the conditional forward edge, how can we be? And this is not even remembering the means of reconnaissance, UAVs and even more long-range means of destruction in the least bit serious enemy.

              Those. Do you think that the available protection is enough for the engine, tanks and cockpit? For MLRS, no doubt, but after all, "Tosochka" is not an MLRS.

              Seems to be yes! laughing However, I don’t understand anymore what is the point in "Solntsepёk"? Why powerful tank armor, why
              protection against anti-tank weapons will be increased
              Why all this?

              Quote: bayard
              One can quickly transfer over long distances without attracting additional. vehicles, others will pass through any terrain and more convenient in the zone of intense fire resistance
              And here once again the question arises, if mobility is needed, then why does the "Hurricane" not suit? Even without upgrades, the range of 35 km has been removed.

              The second question: since a "zone of intense fire resistance" is envisaged, isn't it easier and limited to TPS? Moreover, in my opinion, they are almost an ideal assault weapon for battles in the style of the capture of Konigsberg.
              Roll out to the intersection with a pre-guided package, shoot 2-4 missiles, spit on machine-gun fire, the enemy will not have enough time for anything else, spit on the shock wave from the ruptures of their own BPs, spit on the very likely and completely non-illusory effect of the reflected jet stream from the released BP and either skip further, or pass it back. Wow, I painted it, it was already hot. laughing

              In general, summing up my own point of view: "Tosochka" is not needed for a real army against a serious enemy, it is only needed to sell to impressionable barmaley, to promote its products by Ural, and I see one more thing: the promotion and thus reducing the cost of ammunition precisely for supply normal CBT. Clean economy!
              Good luck to you!

                "Tosochka" was developed as a cheaper and more practical chassis for new thermobaric ammunition. In addition to the existing "Solntsepek", and for the rearmament of these. For "Solntsepёk" \ "Buratino" at the forefront is a suicide bomber even in a moderate conflict. One ATGM, and we get fireworks of epic proportions, in Karabazh we saw this. And with a range of 15 km. you can fire from a closed position and from a relatively safe distance.
                And this is not a weapon to destroy the rear infrastructure (for this there is a MLRS, OTRK cannon artillery), but for the complete suppression of the enemy's front edge (now and in some depth of their orders) before a breakthrough and offensive.
                Only a madman will bring SUCH to the streets of the city - one grenade-launcher shot into the "package" from the window and ... a sea of ​​fire, heat and light.
                Each instrument has its own purpose.
                And the export potential is of course great, because "Solntsepёk" has already been appreciated, but they asked to shoot farther away and on a wheeled chassis, because it is more convenient in the deserts.

      WHAT do you mean "WHY"? Why did they begin to modernize at all? Well, this is just obvious: then, why are other military equipment modernized - to increase combat capabilities!

        The TOS had its own niche, in which it had no alternative - the leading edge assault flamethrower. Now they are trying to make an ersatz-MLRS out of it. And this means that chemists will have to form full-fledged readn with all the harness, because the data for shooting from the sky will not fall. smile

          Alexey, I honestly confess that in the "barrel" artillery I am a complete amateur. But I too (excuse me generously) had an almost childish question: why not put pipes from "Tosochka" on "Grad"?
          After all, a motorized rifle company (for example) has its own specific performers, such as snipers, machine gunners, ATGMs, RPK-shniki, etc. "Toes"?
          I apologize for the lack of education in the "trunk" art.

            There is an even easier option - to make a lightweight PU "Hurricane". Or even take the standard launcher of this MLRS. And to supplement the nomenclature of "hurricane" RS NURS from TOS-2. The caliber is the same 220 mm.
            And that's all - no specialized PU TOS-2 is needed anymore. But the BC of such a universal launcher is for any choice: if you want - burn out the enemy, if you want - place mines.
            It's all about departmental disunity. TOS is not artillery, but RChBZ. And chemists play with it, not paying attention to the fact that they duplicate already existing structures and weapons systems.

    On the machines of this family, KAZ must be installed first. Due to the specifics of the application, it will be difficult to do this. But first, great practice. Secondly, it is vital for them.

        KAZ is primarily the control of the surrounding space. Various sensors and radars. They must be positioned so that they do not suffer from the torch of the rocket engines when fired. And the torch is rather big.

            So about that initially and said. The usual complex from the tank is not set. Need to redo. Customize. There are many problems to solve. KAZ is placed on top. On top of the CBT there is a package of guides. Mobile. The tilt angle will not be constant. All of these small problems require solutions. And in a complex it will not be easy. On the whole it can be solved.

                It will be too low. They try to place KAZ sensors higher. Apparently no coincidence.

                  Why "smallish"? For "Armata" and TBMP - this is how they (launching KAZ) are located at the base of the tower, and then everything depends on the design - you can raise the sensors on the brackets. It all depends on the design. But the task (as it seems to me) is quite solvable - there would be a desire!

                    Launchers and sensors are raised higher. Speech about sensors. The higher they are, the less susceptible to dirt from under the tracks and the further the view. But the problem can be solved unambiguously.

        IR on ATGMs seems to be a thing of the past. The trend is behind multispectral. It is much more difficult to hide from them. KOEP is a half solution nowadays. We need a full-fledged KAZ, especially since there are not so many such machines.

            Subdivisions of radiation, chemical and bacteriological protection in the Saratov region received heavy flamethrower systems TOS-2 "Tosochka", the press service of the Central Military District reported. TOS-2 is a new generation self-propelled jet flamethrower. The gun mount with 18 guides is placed on the Tornado-U all-terrain wheeled chassis, which significantly increased mobility and simplified the operation of the system
