Mi-24 attack helicopters selected as carriers of Barrier-V ATGM system in Ukraine

41

At the range of the State Research Institute for Testing and Certification of Arms and Military Equipment (GNII IS AME) in Ukraine, tests of the Barrier-V high-precision anti-tank missile system are being carried out. Although at this test site in the Chernihiv region, tests have recently been carried out on Mi-8 helicopters, new Ukrainian missiles will be put into service with the Mi-24. It was these attack helicopters that were chosen in Ukraine as carriers of the new anti-tank systems.


Oleg Korostelev, general designer and head of the Kiev design bureau "Luch", told reporters about this.

Today, state tests of this system are underway. And we hope to complete them successfully this year.

- he said.

The general director of the Luch Design Bureau noted that the new complexes will be installed on the Mi-24, since these helicopters are better suited for rocket firing. They have less vibration, provide a more stable position of the machine during firing.


For the first time, it became known about launches of guided missiles of the Barrier-V complex from the Mi-8 back in 2017. Then flight tests were carried out with missile launches at targets imitating a bunker and an enemy tank.


ATGM "Barrier-V" is an air version of the ground-based missile system "Barrier", installed on armored vehicles. Unlike its predecessor, whose range is limited to 5 kilometers, "Barrier-V" is capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 7,5 km.

      Were there any other options? Mi-2 from Motor Sich Boguslaev. And then Motor Sich flew by.

        After all the reductions, mergers and transformations, by the 2014 crisis, the Ukrainian army aviation had three helicopter formations:
        7th Army Aviation Regiment (Novy Kalinov, Lviv Oblast). The regiment has one squadron of Mi-24 and Mi-8. Attached to the 13th Army Corps.
        16th Army Aviation Brigade (former 3rd Army Aviation Regiment) (Brody, Lviv Oblast). The brigade consists of one Mi-24 squadron and two Mi-8 squadrons. Attached to the 8th Army Corps.
        11th Army Aviation Brigade (Chernobaevka, Kherson). The brigade consists of one Mi-24 squadron and two Mi-8 squadrons. Attached to the 6th Army Corps.
        Thus, in three divisions there is a squadron of Mi-24 and, most likely, there are about 45 helicopters of this type (s). Minus - losses in Donbass!
        After the collapse of the Soviet Union, there were more than 250 Mi-24s in Ukraine.
        Currently, ONE modernized MI-24PU-1 "yellow 04" is in service. All other helicopters in service are ordinary "Soviet" Mi-24P and Mi-24VP.
        This is what the "revolutions and mandanas" lead to.

        But why? Judging by the video, the Mi-2MSB (combat motor sich) is being tested in the same way.
        Another thing is that the "Barrier" itself is already a rather old ATGM and although its R-2 rocket has high armor penetration, up to 800 mm for the DZ, but it is already old

              They write that 2010 was created.
              The fact that there is a laser trail suggests that it is not very old, in my opinion

      Judging by the frequent mentions of Korostelev and KB "Luch", one gets the impression that only they work in the Ukrainian military-industrial complex, or they are lucky with state funding.
      I would like to wish one thing to Oleg Korostelev and the design bureau headed by him, so that the products they have designed will never get a "start" in life.

      Svidomo was lucky in his time with the Soviet legacy. From Bandera, they only inherited shizu. Shamanize the old Soviet legacy. Where else can we get helicopters when "the whole world is with us"?

      The Soviet legacy with which they are so zealously fighting still does not want to end. Hike Korostelev and Boguslaev are theirs. Truth and here zrada crept up. recourse The names Korostelev and Boguslaev are painfully Russian. How can we build a cathedral Ukraine then?
      ... Kiev, December 26. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky ordered the Ukrainian Armed Forces to lift at least 16 Mi-24 combat helicopters into the sky next year.


      We are talking about the army aviation of the Land Forces of Ukraine, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine clarifies.

      “The flight tests of blades for Mi-24 helicopters of Ukrainian production, successfully carried out at Motor Sich, give confidence that this task must be completed,” said Colonel General Ruslan Khomchak, Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

      It is known that he outlined plans according to which the notorious new capabilities for the army aviation could "allow the restoration of 16 or more combat helicopters by the end of the year."

    Yes, from such a distance (7500m) any OSA will overwhelm this helicopter before its ATGM reaches the target, especially while the helicopter hovers to highlight the target.
    Although it is unlikely that this ATGM will be launched from the maximum maximum distance, so if it flies even closer, then Verba and Needle will also get it.
    I think if the helicopter's ATGMs are still old, of the "fired and remembered" principle, then all the same they have to hit at a distance of 10-10 + km. Or sorry for the pilots ..

      Nope. Bad pilots are not a pity.
      ... The anti-tank missile system "Barrier-V" for the modernization of Mi-24 helicopters consists of an anti-tank guided missile ATGM in a transport and launch container TPK and a laser control channel LKU-V in an optical sighting station OPS, designed to engage stationary and moving modern armored targets, having combined, spaced or monolithic armor, including those with reactive armor, as well as small targets such as bunkers, a tank in a trench, lightly armored objects and helicopters.

        Why "Barrier-V"? After all, in Ukraine "once" was developed a helicopter anti-tank missile "Alta" - ,, analogue in places ,, "Brimstone"! By the way, the firing range is also 7,5 km, like that of "Barrier-V"!

          probably for unification
          the same ATGM in a portable form, for armored vehicles and a helicopter
          and Alta is very expensive, there are not many of them.
