Indian Air Force Officer: We Achieve 100% Effectiveness of HELINA Anti-Tank Missiles

20

Air-launched anti-tank missiles have been tested in India. The tests were carried out at the proving ground of the state of Rajasthan (Rajasthan) in the northwest of the country.


According to the latest data, anti-tank missiles were fired from the board of the ALH Dhruv multi-purpose helicopter. We are talking about an impact modification of this rotorcraft - Dhruv Mk.4. Earlier, two classes of missiles were installed on this modification in the Indian Air Force: air-to-air and air-to-ground. Now the use of new versions of the HELINA anti-tank missiles has been implemented.

Indian Air Force Officer:

We have achieved 100% effectiveness when using HELINA missiles against tanks and other armored vehicles. All targets that were detected at the range were successfully hit.

Representatives of the Indian Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) report that the missiles hit targets at a distance of up to 7 km. It is the 7-km distance that is designated as the maximum for air-launched HELINA anti-tank guided missiles.

When the missile is put into service with the Indian Air Force, it is reported that it will receive a special name - Dhruvastra. It is anti-tank weapon with an infrared homing head (GOS). It is capable of hitting armored targets at any time of the day and in any weather. In this case, the missile can hit tanks in the option of attack from above (vertical hit on an armored vehicle). It is reported that several targets at the range were destroyed in this way.

    The Hindus do not specify whether the armored vehicles had protection.

    It looks like they were shooting at the corps scattered across the range.

    100% efficiency is not even fantastic.
    These are the dreams of bearded boys sitting on white elephants.

      They don't even specify the weather conditions. And if it's snowing? Or fog?

      He probably said that the rocket sings and dances in the correct dances in flight, and then it hits ... There is no 100% chance of hits ... Even if you clean everything with a vacuum cleaner, the visibility is "million in a million" and the quality of the seeker is almost perfect ...

      Temples -Tanks there making them plywood? The body of the tank itself is armor!

        Thrifty, what kind of cancer is the body of the tank (armor) protected from the seeker?
        For those who are on the tank:
        How will the tank's hull (armor) prevent the missile's homing head from performing its task?
        How will the body of the tank (armor) prevent the rocket from hitting this very tank?

          Khramov - your comment that it is not known whether the technique had protection stumbled over my question - what is the armor of a tank but protection? First of all, I am interested in where their missiles hit the tank, and what damage they caused - destruction! So you understand? ??

      Yes, they are not shy. Already it would be "maximum" efficiency, not 100%.

    We have achieved 100% effectiveness when using HELINA missiles against tanks and other armored vehicles.

    This cannot be a priori. There is always a chance that the missile will not hit for one reason or another. Hindus cannot even correctly create an image.

      Well, I missed this target, went further, saw another and hit.

    It's okay. 100% efficient. All detected targets are destroyed. They found 1 tank hull doused with diesel fuel and set on fire and hit it with a single rocket launch. Profit! laughing

      Found 1 tank hull, doused with diesel fuel and set on fire and hit him with the launch of one rocket. Profit
      you can simply turn on the IR-spotlight on the tank, and 100% capture is guaranteed for the seeker! wink

        A searchlight is more expensive than a couple of buckets of diesel fuel. smile

          but reusable, can be used for demonstration firing for many years ... wink

    And how did you determine whether to get there, is it not to destroy? And there are no 100% hits.

    All targets that were detected at the test site

    And how many targets did the missiles fail to find?
