The development of ATGM "Kornet-D1" for the Airborne Forces is being completed

The development of the newest anti-tank missile system "Kornet-D1" for the Airborne Forces is being completed, the complex is being tested. Bekkhan Ozdoev, the industrial director of the weapons cluster of the state corporation, spoke about this.


The Kornet-D1 ATGM, created specifically for the Airborne Forces, is mounted on the BMD-4M chassis, it has two automated launchers, each with its own sighting system, which allows firing at two different targets at once.

(...) This is a fundamentally new complex - only the in-flight missile control system remains in it from the standard Kornet complex in service. "Kornet-D1" for the Airborne Forces is located on the BMD-4M chassis, which ensures its airborne landing using standard equipment previously developed for the BMD-4M

- leads RIA News words of the representative of Rostec.

It is specified that the launchers are equipped with an automatic tracking device, which allows you to hit the target without the participation of the operator. In the airborne version, the Kornet-D1 ATGM uses extended-range missiles. A missile with a tandem cumulative warhead is capable of hitting a target at a range of 8 km, with a thermobaric one - up to 10 km. In this case, the second missile can hit low-speed aircraft.

In November 2020, the Ministry of Defense announced plans to soon complete state tests of the Kornet-D1 ATGM on the tracked chassis of the BMD-4M airborne combat vehicle. These complexes will be used by anti-tank artillery battalions of the Airborne Forces. In addition, training of the Kornet-D1 ATGM crew commanders began in December last year. The training takes place at the Omsk Airborne Training Center.

Note that the Airborne Forces are currently at the stage of reform. It is planned to turn them into rapid reaction forces, and in the future - autonomous units capable of independently solving a wide range of tasks in their area of ​​responsibility.

      Unfortunately, no.

      Like the "Cornet" of the basic version, the new complex uses laser beam guidance of the missile. The operator or automatics illuminate the target with a laser, while the missile, using its guidance systems, is held on the beam and follows the target. .......
      The laser receiver is located at the tail end of the rocket, making suppression of the steering beam an almost impossible task.

        When the automation lights up, this is:
        Shot and forgot.

        And more, from the article:

          I shot it and forgot it when I aimed at the target and fired it and went, drove on. The rocket itself will find the target,
          What we are discussing is called semi-automatic tracking. The target is highlighted.

            Is it highlighted by the operator? - Not. That is, after all, "fire and forget" in a different sense, and not as in the Western complexes with an active seeker.

                From a distance of 2 km or more, the return line does not usually arrive. And here the range is up to 10 km.

                  This is if you are standing in an open field, and this is rare. It was smooth on paper, but they forgot about the ravines! This principle of missile guidance is not in favor of the Kornet operator, even if there is a dividing forest belt, not to mention the terrain, which can greatly reduce the range of a direct shot

                    This is the question. The range of 10 km was made for a reason. As the comrade said below, the target will likely be detected and illuminated by the drone. Shooting at a small-sized drone hovering 200 meters above the ground from a distance of more than 2 kilometers is still a lottery, but it will bring a missile launched from the BMD-4m chassis to the target without any problems.

                but while it was standing and shining, the answer flew in
                exactly, exactly along the "laser path" after the optical sensors have triggered the irradiation and the calculation of the location of the radiation source ...

    And where to look about our promising ATGMs, in addition to Hermes. All these notorious "fire and forget" somehow do not shine in our info-space. Technological problems or a concept?

      Rather, a concept adopted with technological problems in mind. It is necessary to hit heavy armored vehicles, avoiding retaliation if possible. And an active GOS for solving this problem according to the price / result criterion seems to be not the only and not the best solution.

    Here, most likely, the target is accompanied not by the operator, as on a conventional cornet, but by the BMD automatics. Radio command guidance channel, not active seeker.

    so there are such forces, ODSHBr.

      Poor troops, not every new minister of defense (starting with Grachev) reformed him. The most combat-ready troops (where the role of the soldier is important) .... Improvement will not improve, but defile, confuse the well-oiled mechanism - there are more than enough people who want to.

        The Airborne Forces in the Soviet understanding, as divisions with light weapons parachuting behind enemy lines, is an unjustified approach. The reform is about making the weapons "heavier" while maintaining airmobility, and parachuting is just an option. In this case, the "role of the soldier" does not decrease in any way, only the shock capabilities increase.

          Quote: Roma-1977
          is an unjustified approach

          where has it been proven? the Soviet Airborne Forces had VTA, had different armored vehicles, in fact weighed down in comparison with the SDSBR, we have dshbshnikov and an artillery battalion and mortar batteries and air defense missile systems and anti-tank guided missiles in each company, where else to make it heavier? became heavier, lost mobility and became more visible.

            This has been proven by all experience over the years of the existence of the USSR Airborne Forces. The paratroopers fought as light infantry, handily replenished with heavy weapons on the spot whenever possible. What's in the Second World War, what's in local wars. But their bonus was airmobility. The airborne forces were never used along the straight profile. Did not work.

              It worked, but not really. The last major airborne assault was dropped on the right bank of the Dnieper in the fall of 1943, directly at the German reserves (no one thought they were there). The landing party did not fulfill the main task, but the Germans also lost their reserves.

      And there will also be divisions. So that 2-3 divisions could be transferred to a remote theater of operations within a couple of weeks, with all the weapons.

    A question for specialists: how will a ground operator detect targets at a distance of 10 km, and then aim a missile at it? It is no coincidence that the standard of range in the old years when developing infantry ATGMs was up to 5 km.

      Question to specialists: how the ground operator will detect targets at a distance of 10 km
      the drone will be suspended, or external target designation will be accepted, and so a little "that" .. that exactly rested on "10 km" for the operator in the BMD repeat!
