Russia has developed a grenade launcher shot to neutralize drones

A special grenade launcher ammunition for hitting and capturing a small drone was developed in Russia. The patent for the invention is published on the official website of the Federal Institute of Industrial Property (part of Rospatent).


The creation of a special ammunition was carried out at the Peter the Great Strategic Missile Forces Military Academy. In the description of the patent it is said that the ammunition for the grenade launcher has a warhead and a throwing part, the warhead is made of separate striking elements located inside the body and striking segments fastened together by flexible elements that form a network.

(...) a protective metal container in the form of a cylinder is placed inside the shell of the ammunition to ensure safety, compact placement and directional deployment of the net after a shot

- says the description.

There is no other information about the new ammunition for neutralizing drones, most likely we are talking about a shot for an under-barrel grenade launcher, although there may be other options.

Note that in 2019, the US Department of the Ground Forces filed a patent for a 40-mm grenade for grenade launchers, designed to combat drones. The ammunition consists of two parts - a detachable warhead and a hull. There is a net inside the hull, which should entangle the UAV in flight. This ammunition can be fired from a conventional under-barrel (or any other) 40-mm grenade launcher.

      The RPG-7 is not the only grenade launcher. Or have you not heard about others? The article says:

        Duc, we have a lot of 40 mm., Shots, it remains to develop only the filling of the warhead corresponding to the given efficiency and only, but you can shoot from different certified systems, especially for: the police / FSB / FSO and RosGvardia shooters, they were allowed to "shoot down" drones in a peaceful life, by the way, legislatively already!

        However, a colleague nespich (Dmitry) is still great, I somehow did not think about it, for example.
        But I thought about the fuse for this grenade, in general, you need a contactless fuse for the timely triggering of the BP. Have these Kulibins already developed it?

      And it seemed to me, the dark one, that according to the photo, the grenade launcher should be fixed on the drone. belay

      The crows are to blame for that? In my opinion, "crows", these are the developers of this device, or they were going to hunt for TV copters (such white ones) they did not report, or they decided to make money on it, I see no other explanation, since there are more effective means. Of course, I understand that it will look very dashing - an infantryman with a grenade launcher throws a net on Bayraktar, for example, who, 20 km away, launches a missile guided on it ... yeah wassat The network is finally fire! It is the network, not the shrapnel charge lol I call on Lavrov for help, because there is not enough vocabulary ...

                    Let's say a regular 40mm grenade launcher. Warhead. The minimum charge is + 9-16 conditionally "generating" elements fastened with a thread like a snowflake. When the self-detonation mechanism is triggered due to the charge and energy of the shot, these damaging elements are scattered by a radius of a certain length of threads. An analogue of buckshot cartridges with associated buckshot, only with a slowdown in "opening" and a large caliber. IMHO ... for distances of 100-200 meters. That is, in fact, a little longer than a butterfly net. You can't shoot like that in a city, but in a field, what kind of drones must be annoying to fly at such a distance. But for the protection of beaches, summer cottages, yachts, celebrities, it may do. The paparazzi are just that annoying.

          If it seems a little, then in addition ...

          The US military plans to use SkyNet Mi-5 cartridges against drones weighing up to 25 kg and with a maximum altitude of up to 1000 m. In their opinion, such devices due to their low cost and ease of control can be used by terrorists and saboteurs to track or drop small ammunition on regime objects .

          SkyNet Mi-5 cartridge is a fragmented lead bullet consisting of five elements, interconnected by a strong thread. When fired, the bullet is divided into five elements and forms a network resemblance. When hitting the target, heavy elements of the bullet held by the thread entangle and damage the drone.

        Believe me, in 2016 in Kolomna on the basis of 924 of the State Center for Unmanned Aviation
        Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation - a lot of issues related to unmanned aerial vehicles were discussed.
        Including this.
        After analyzing half of the reports, it became clear that there were no means of combating drones at that time - there were not even ideas for the physical elimination of small-sized (up to 100kg) UAVs.
        Only the arguments that only electronic means can help terminate communication, while mentioning that the UAV can, if communication or navigation signals are lost, simply continue to carry out the task according to a pre-recorded program (albeit with a loss of accuracy) or with a subsequent exit to the signal zone ...
        But, not a single idea for the physical destruction of small-sized UAVs was said.
        And then we all saw "moving pictures" from Arab sites, like Phantom-type drones laying small mines from a height of 500 meters right into the hatches of tanks ...
        And those, our bright minds from many firms and institutions, who had to think at 360 degrees and understand the future of UAVs - on the near, average. and long-term time planning - were just "out of topic" ...
        And by the way, there were a lot of persons, professors, doctors of technical sciences, candidates of technical sciences, VUNC VVS "VVA", NITs TsNII VVS MO, NITS VA V PVO, VNIIPO MES, UZGA, Vega and Kronstadt. ..
        Hundreds of people.

        That's what's scary - they do that. about which they have no understanding.
        Someone understands aerodynamics, someone understands mathematics. someone in algorithms, someone in connection ...
        That's all.

        The stone flower does not come out.
        No one can connect their scattered knowledge into one whole.

        Even the list of references that they used in their reports is all foreign.
        It was really scary to watch them boast that they increase the noise immunity of video transmission channels using American Intel processors and Tesla graphics superprocessors ...
        And without them - it did not work in any way ... That's it, Mikhalych ...

      The development for the Strategic Missile Forces Military Academy is somehow too small.

      I just wondered (regardless of the development of the domestic, or any other, for example, the United States), and who is this critic, so trashing the military academy of the Strategic Missile Forces? Perhaps he is a genius inventor of weapons systems? Or a design engineer? Or just a topic? I asked a very simple question-
      Suggest yours, we will discuss.

      However, genius did not condescend to such a plebeian as me. Did not give an answer and did not share a link to his competence
      Comments from other brilliant individuals and links to resources and developments, again not their own, immediately went. Although I did not address them, and not about this.

"Own" ideas were suddenly implemented by "someone" in practice ... and how can you "prove" that you had this idea much earlier than messages about the development of an idea by any design bureau? For example, this has happened to me, and even more than once! Sometimes. I sent my "proposals" to the editors of technical, "paramilitary" magazines, where they "safely" ended their journey ... sometimes, I just did not send them anywhere, fearing that the ideas would seem ridiculous to the "people" ... I have my own "ideas for countering drones; but I refer them to the "category" in which there are already the same level of development, proposals ... in general, nothing "ingenious"! request
        By the way, I like your proposal to organize a competition-discussion of your own proposals ... or open a "heading" on VO on an ongoing basis like "free patents" ...

          IMHO. The trouble is not in your own ideas and the embarrassment to voice them. The trouble is that they do not hesitate to throw mud. Well, at least some constructive criticism was, but no. The monologue is conducted downright, like we are the only one D, Artanyan. Although here I also practically do not comment on the weapons or history section. Although I tried to explain that a kind of "revolution" had already taken place in short-bladed weapons, the concept of a frontal cut appeared, but apparently "not into the horse feed". Here, for many, the "finca" is still a "wunderwaffe" among the "short blades". But at least I admit that the "finca" is still quite yourself.

Unlike most of us, sofa experts, he is a real specialist who has made a great contribution to strengthening the country's defense capability. Although on social and political issues, I sometimes allowed myself to discuss with him in the comments.
