"They measured the accuracy of the gun on a simple cardboard target": The US press drew attention to the tests of the GSh-30 by the Su-57 fighter

135

A footage of a Russian 5th generation Su-57 fighter is testing an airborne aviation guns. The tests are carried out in a special hangar, where a target is installed at a certain distance from the combat aircraft.


The footage shows how the onboard weapon appears from the fuselage compartment - special flaps open. After that, fire is fired at the target.

We are talking about the GSh-30 30-mm aircraft cannon (Gryazev-Shipunov cannon). Earlier it was reported that the Su-57 will be equipped with a modification of the GSh-30-1, which is also equipped with the previous generation fighters of the Russian Aerospace Forces, including the Su-30 and Su-35. The GSh-30 cannon is one of the lightest and fastest-firing air cannons in the world.

The cannon, as can be seen from the frames, is located on the right side of the fuselage - almost above the edge of the right wing.


Western experts and observers drew attention to the ground tests of the GSh-30 aircraft gun on the Su-57.

So, in the American edition of The Drive, the following is discussed:

Despite the tests of the Russian fighter with more exotic weapons (probably referring to intra-fuselage hypersonic weapons - approx. "VO"), traditional weapons remain an important part of the Su-57 arsenal. Also earlier, the aircraft was tested with various kinds of air-to-air missiles.

A video with tests of an aircraft cannon is posted on the user channel Nail Chapaev:


Columnist Thomas Newdick in the US press:

When not in use, the muzzle of the Su-57 cannon is hidden by an aerodynamic fairing, which will also help reduce the critical radar signature of the aircraft's front hemisphere.

In this case, the author draws attention to the target:

Apparently they were testing the GSh-30 and measuring the accuracy of the cannon with a simple cardboard target glued to the wall.



Apparently, the American author is used to the fact that in the United States, even for ordinary training targets, incredible amounts are allocated due to the presence of an 800 billion military budget ...

It should be recalled that aircraft cannons are also installed on American F-35 fighters. At the same time, the pilots of the US Air Force and Navy often complained that when using an aircraft gun, strong vibration occurs, which is transmitted to the cockpit and causes malfunctions when displaying information on monitors. It was not reported that this problem had been resolved in the United States.

              The first interrogation of the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Christopher Ray after the siege of the Capitol looks like a report on the capture of dangerous criminals. Whereas earlier terrorists were sought outside the United States, now they are among their own citizens. More than three hundred of them were arrested on suspicion of participation in the riots, and surrendered by their own relatives and friends.

Some even took the painful step of betraying their family and friends. ”- FBI Director Christopher Ray. https://news.rambler.ru/world/000-demokraticheskie-tsennosti-kak-rasovye-skandaly-obernulis-massovymi-donosami-amerikantsev-drug-na-druga/

        Is it worth paying attention to the performance of some journalist who has no idea how it really is, but as a worn-out artist sees this way ..
        In the USA, the same criteria are also determined for accuracy. Any barrel is shot in the same way.
        And so just in case. What we saw was not an accuracy test. A clean target with nothing applied, very close to the aircraft. Most likely we saw one of the stages of testing this gun on an airplane. There will also be flight tests, when the pilot will fire into a white light, and not at targets from various positions of the aircraft.
        To begin with, on the ground without the engines turned on, then with the engines running, check for surge, whether the engine will fail due to the firing of the cannon. What about the mount, how the plane will behave when the gun recovers, check the mount, etc. Calculations are one thing, field tests are another. But you never know such tests were, are and will be.
        And the last one is to shoot the cannon at a certain distance. I don’t know which for the Su-57 it is quite possible for both 200 meters and 500 meters. I don’t know.

        Or you can stupidly climb on Wikipedia and read the history of this pen, very surprised that it was developed by an outsider on a proactive basis. And that Russia also uses it, and the cost of the space handle is space 6 (six) dollars.

          So even Wikipedia does not deny that there were some research about what to write in zero gravity, and as a result, the budget was cut. As a result, they bought special pencils and markers for $ 100 apiece, until a third-party inventor created a cheap pen. So I think Zadornov's trolling of the Americans is appropriate and what is written in this article confirms this.

    what nonsense. Accuracy has not been tested in this video. A gun is tested for accuracy on a stand, not an airplane. On the plane, they carry out the zeroing and for this they also use a stand on which the "Stream" type gas-dynamic blowing system is mounted. Here, most likely, they could measure the overloads from firing, the removal of powder gases, they tested the elements of electric trigger, power supply, opening / closing the airlock, etc., but you never know what else.

As an example, kill 44 billion on the development of B-2, spend 2 apiece, knowingly knowing that They are not good for anything. How is it? In the USSR, they were put up against the wall for this, and in Russia they are imprisoned right away. And judging by the F-35, which is generally good for us, the situation is only getting worse. The bad thing is that they piously believe in its exclusivity and invincibility.

        hmm, but for some reason no one is now installing 23-mm cannons. In general, it depends on ... the design of the gun, the rate of fire and shots. So modern 25-30mm cannons have lower recoil than gsh-6-23 with higher ballistics.

          The GSh-23L version for the 23x152mm projectile will at least not be inferior to the Lightning's 25mm cannon.

            I have a 3 question:
            1. What exactly will not be inferior to?
            2. Where did you find GSh-23l for a projectile 23x152mm?
            3. And what do you want to say to all of this?

              1. What exactly will not yield

              In the rate of fire and the second mass of the volley (plus or minus). The muzzle velocity will be the same.
              2. Where did you find the GSH-23L for the 23x152mm round?

              We are talking about the necessary modification for this projectile.
              GSh-23L is good enough (rate of fire), but lacks flatness (23x115mm projectile).

                And question 3?)) He's the most important - why is this all?))) Unsupported assumptions, why compare with GAU-22 / A and what does this have to do with what I wrote (since you answered me )?

                  IMHO, GSh-30-1 has insufficient rate of fire and flatness for close maneuvering combat, in comparison
                  with GAU-22 / A or M61.
                  The GSh-23L modification for the aforementioned projectile looks like a budget solution.
                  Experience in DCS brought such thoughts to my mind smile

                    Or maybe it's worth a shot under the GSH-30-1 to start with finalizing? Budgetary. The scope of work on GSH-23 along with the shot will be more, and in the end you forgot about the recoil, with which this thread began.

                      The returns will be comparable. The GSh-30 projectile weighs 390g, versus 188g 23x152mm, muzzle velocity for 30mm 880 m / s, versus 980 m / s for 23x152mm.
                      The goal is to increase the rate of fire and flatness, with comparable recoil.

                      The shot for the GSh-30 cannot be finished, the projectile is heavy, and the rate of fire per barrel is already high.
                      The 23x152mm projectile has existed for a long time, it is used in Shilka and the GSh-23-2 anti-aircraft gun.
                      Therefore, only the revision of the GSh-23l cannon itself is needed for a more powerful shot of the same caliber.

                        Why? You can at least develop a shot with a lighter projectile, where you can increase the speed and accuracy. Something can already be done.

                        You can at least develop a shot with a lighter projectile, where you can increase the speed and accuracy.

                        The mass of the projectile can really be reduced.
                        For 30mm lateral load 173 g / cm2 (390g projectile)
                        For 23mmx152mm - 142 g / cm2 (188g projectile)
                        Bringing a heavy 30mm projectile to a lateral load of 142 g / cm2, we get 320g - a weight reduction by 18%, increasing the muzzle velocity with the same gunpowder weight.
                        But: there is nowhere to raise the rate of fire, there are already 1500 rounds per barrel. This means that we need a Gast scheme (we have mastered it long ago and is simple) with two barrels. But even with new shells (which are 18% lighter), the recoil will still grow whiter than 1,5 times (at 3000 rds / min)
                        (These are the calculations on the way to the gym smile )
                        There is no "anti-aircraft GSh-23-2

                        I didn't remember the name and was too lazy to google request
                        There is a ZU-23-2 and this is a completely different gun from the GSh-23. It was developed by other people elsewhere.

                        I know
                        The rate of fire on the ZU-23 barrel is less

                        Up to 1000 rounds per barrel.
                        if you think that for GSh-23 it is enough to replace the bolt group under 23x152mm
                        and all will be well

                        I admitted the thought of deep processing.
                        But with the stated goals: to double the rate of fire with comparable recoil, to increase flatness. All this is possible only in caliber smaller than 30mm (23-25mm).
                        with regard to the su-57, it is difficult to overlook that the double-barreled cannon simply will not stand there

                        Because it was originally designed for GSH-30-1.
                        and the GSh developed a new cannon for 30mm (it is a newer development than the GSh-23) for a reason.

                        I know what's newer.

                        I am not engaged in the design of air cannons in order to seriously work out solutions, especially in the absence of such a problem. I just pointed out that the message of iouris and yours is wrong, but I have already said the main obvious idea - it is necessary to modernize the existing cannon-shot system. It is quite possible to raise the muzzle velocity and accuracy. You propose an option with a large amount of work, which will not be applicable anyway. By the way, the air cannon with the highest rate of fire per barrel (2500) just under 30mm is the GIAT / NEXTER 30 M 791

                        Right, revolving. Which we have never made. Unlike Gast's double-barreled scheme.
                        There are two versions of this gun:
                        GIAT 30M 781 for 30x113mm projectile and
                        GIAT 30M 791 for 30x150mm round.
                        Obviously, the French managed (with maximum unification) to create two cannons, a shell of different power and in the same caliber.
                        Their shell is noticeably lighter - 244-270g. But even so, the second recoil impulse of the GIAT 30M 791 is 30% more than that of the GSh-30-1.
                        I do not think that only by lightening the projectile (and reducing the recoil), you can increase the accuracy.
                        There is a video on YouTube where the 6-barrel M61 shows a much better result (there is an opinion that 1 barrel should shoot more accurately), having a second recoil momentum higher than ours by 34% (but the gun itself is 2,5 times heavier).
                        So you can't do without reworking the structure.
                        I will admit that this may be due to the extremely low weight of the GSH-30-1, only 44 kg (versus 110-120 kg of the GIAT 30M 791).
                        We saved on something, to the detriment of quality.

                        You are confusing the rocket impulse of the projectile and the actual recoil of the cannon (which I talked about at the very beginning). Of course, for a significant increase in the rate of fire, the amount of work will be decent, not the fact that it is necessary. But, for example, if you do increase the rate of fire, the Gatling scheme is completely worked out for us, or you can even try a scheme with two synchronized guns. The task must be set more precisely and the use of the Gast scheme will not increase the accuracy in any way, and the projectile must be developed / modernized in any case.

                        Used only a second pulse of the queue to simplify.
                        the Gatling scheme is quite worked out in our country

                        It is more complex and heavier than the Gast scheme.
                        or you can try a scheme with two synchronized guns in general.

                        So it is on the "Tornado" and "Mirage-2000". But this will double the recoil, as well as the weight of the aircraft's artillery.
                        using the Gast scheme will not increase the accuracy in any way

                        So I talked about the rate of fire (reasonable, 3000 rds / min), with the maximum simplicity of the design and the same level of recoil.
                        Accuracy must be increased by the greater mass of the barrel and the stiffness of the cannon structure, which was clearly saved in the race to reduce weight. And the processing of the entire gun as a whole.

                        It will definitely increase recoil no more than Gast, but in reality it will rather less - since the guns are spaced apart. There is a plus in potentially greater reliability, but minus weight and maintenance. This is an example of a simple way to increase the rate of fire. Again, it's not a fact that such a rate of fire is needed (at least to sacrifice accuracy or something else for it).

                        The high rate of fire increases the chances of "catching" the target in a maneuvering battle. It is far from always possible to settle down well in the tail, the target can fly through the HUD for a split second.

                        Yes, this is called the density of fire, which increases the likelihood of hitting the target - it's a matter of balancing the real solution. Moreover, BVB on cannons is very rare.

                        The point is not even that you not only suggested that. Simply reducing the caliber by itself (especially in our reality) does not increase the rate of fire, but that flatness with a greater mass of the projectile and equal speed (I repeat, it can be increased on GSh-30 as well) will be better.

                        In close maneuvering combat, all means are good. There are times when an opponent crosses the HUD for a split second and you should be able to use this chance, he may generally be more experienced or more maneuverable. Sometimes survival depends on it.
                        From experience in DCS, I can say that rapid-fire cannons (GSh-23l, GAU-22 / A, M61) are more likely to realize this. But the GSH-23L lacks muzzle velocity in comparison with the other two.
                        Just reducing the caliber itself (especially in our reality) does not increase the rate of fire

                        Reduces the mass of the projectile while maintaining a good lateral load (how quickly the projectile is braked against the air), which makes it possible to significantly increase the rate of fire (2 times) while maintaining the same level of recoil.
                        but the same flatness with a greater mass of the projectile and equal speed (I repeat, it can be increased on GSh-30 as well) will be better

                        Flatness depends on lateral load (g / cm2) and muzzle velocity.

                        But it's interesting. It turns out that in DCS, the rate of fire is taken into account and the initial speed, apparently, too? And what about flatness and other precision such as scattering?

                        Of course. And the projectile is slowed down in flight, it can be seen along the tracks.

                        Let's say the opponent makes a loop, you fly after him with a high overload, and the aiming mark GSh-23l (Mig-21bis, Mig-23) or ADEN (on Mirage-2000) goes beyond the ILS.

                        Have m2000 DEFA :) When shooting in a bend with overload, it is less possible to assess the flatness of the ballistics of the cannon-projectile itself - here it is more interesting in a straight line. But what about the difference with the GSH-30 - have you tried it?

                        PS: Maybe I'll try it in DCS too :)

                        On the contrary: I wrote about the sighting mark "floating away" outside the ILS, i.e. the point where the track meets the target.
                        This was not the case with the M61.

                        By the way, I think that this is not a matter of flatness, but of the speed of the projectile - it flies longer and you need to make a big correction when cornering.

                  The M61 (1050 m / s muzzle velocity) has a better flatness situation, GSh-30 (880 m / s) is somewhere in the middle.
                  (GSH-23L and ADEN - 730-750 m / s).
                  IMHO, with vigorous maneuvers, the M61 has the best characteristics (fire density and flatness). Despite the lower power of the projectile. One or two hits are enough to severely impair aerodynamics or ignite the engine. Fighters now do not fly out to attack with cannons (which the GSh-30 is very good at, with its heavy projectile).
                  When the opponent quickly crosses the ILS, the best opportunities are provided by the M61 and GSh-23l cannons. Hence the idea arose to "combine" them - to remake the GSh-23l for a projectile with a higher muzzle velocity.

                  Thanks, but I'm not talking about tabular charts, I'm talking about specific modeling in DCS (with all possible conventions). And I want to understand what kind of guns are taken into account there. Again, in relation to our initial conversation. It's good, of course, when everything is fine and if you make a cannon with a good rate of fire and ballistics, then you need to thoroughly approach this - this is not an option to quickly remake the GSh-23 under a more powerful cartridge. If you choose how you can improve the current not the best situation with small forces, then my idea is that the rate of fire compensates for poor accuracy and high dispersion (you fill a large area with a large number of shells and increase the probability of hitting), and vice versa - better accuracy can to compensate for the lower rate of fire - the spread is less and the same number of shells falls into the desired area at a lower rate of fire. The ballistics of the GSh-30 is slightly better than the GSh-23, but not 2 times.

                  Oddly enough, they do this, although rarely, but more often than they work with cannons in the air, simply because now there are practically no real BVBs - if only which drone is shot down with a cannon.

        I calculated for a lightweight 270g 30mm projectile:
        With the same energy of 150 kJ (roughly, with the same amount of gunpowder), the muzzle velocity will increase to 1055 m / s (which is very good), and the impulse of the projectile will decrease by 20%. Then, simplifying, you can increase the rate of fire to 1800 rds / min with the same recoil and greater flatness of fire.
        The question arises regarding the resource of the barrel and the reliability of the power supply (the French chose the revolving scheme for a reason).
        In general, the GIAT 30M 791 will be much more technologically advanced, of course, in comparison with the GSH-30-1. Noteworthy is the presence of a powerful muzzle brake, in principle, absent in our country.

        By the way, here's another nuance (it's all about small bubbles) - you don't need a particularly fast pace to work on the ground, and very short queues are used at the BVB at the maximum pace. The gatling scheme, due to the inertia of a massive block of barrels, takes longer to reach the maximum rate of fire than other options, including revolving ones, and therefore the real rate in such a queue will be less than the declared maximum. What I mean is that a good balanced solution requires taking into account all the subtleties in the complex.

        This is true only for cannons with a gas engine.
        In the presence of an external drive (as in the M61), the rotation of the barrels can be started before pressing the trigger (after removing the gun safety catch, for example).
        But this does not apply to our guns Gast.

    Yes, according to Lavrov, exactly. Very capaciously characterizes all those who are trying to joke higher.
    Because in the text

    "Surprisingly, the GSh-30-1 is fired at a simple backstop. If this was a test to gauge the accuracy of the gun in any way, it would only really be good for monitoring the general grouping of impacts, which appears to have been measured using a simple cardboard target pasted to the wall. "

    And then he explains his thought:

    "Test firing on the ground is an important part of proving the weapon's reliability and accuracy, as well as determining if there are any adverse effects on the aircraft itself. Vibrations and impacts from the gasses and debris as a result of firing the gun can be major concerns for any airframe, let alone one that has low-observable features, some of which are delicate by their very nature. These tests will first occur before firing the gun in flight, but since we don't know when the video was taken , the weapon may have already completed its evaluation. "

    But for hamsters, a phrase taken out of context is enough.

        I read the post three times, but did not understand the idea. The author writes that it is not clear what information they are trying to obtain with the help of the test. And then he makes the assumption that in this way they are trying to study the effect of the pulses of the firing gun.
        No one jokes over the cardboard, but if the article is translated truthfully and impartially, then the views will be several times less, as well as the dough for them.
        As practice has repeatedly shown, "patriots" regularly react to news like "the United States is crazy, they wrote that Russia ..." and then you can insert any nonsense, no one will check the information.

    And in general, IMHO, it was a mistake to switch to 30mm air cannons, sacrificing rate of fire.
    They are more suitable for shooting at bombers, perhaps, but in a maneuvering battle sometimes there is a split second to "cut" a target flying through the ILS.
    The best option would be a modification of the GSh-23L (3000 rds / min) for a 23x152mm projectile. The rate of fire is twice (compared to the GSh-30-1), the initial velocity of the projectile is 100 m / s higher (for 23x152mm).
