"As a temporary measure": American AH-64 Apache helicopters received an Israeli Spike NLOS missile

The American Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopter has received an Israeli Spike Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) guided missile as a temporary weapons... This is reported by flightglobal.com with reference to the press service of the US Army.


According to the portal, the Israeli Spike NLOS missile has been adopted as a "long-range weapon" for AH-64 Apache helicopters. However, it is emphasized that this is a temporary option, then the United States intends to use a rocket of its own design on helicopters, but with characteristics like Spike NLOS.

The decision to adopt the rocket into service was made after successful tests, in which a Spike NLOS rocket launched from an AH-64 Apache helicopter successfully hit a stationary target at a distance of 32 km.

This weapon can hit targets at four times the range of current Apache ammunition.

- stated in the command of the US Army.

It was reported back in 64 that the US military is testing the Spike Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) guided missile as a new weapon for the AH-2019E helicopter. Tests began in Israel, where the Americans observed the use of Spike NLOS from Israeli AH-64 Delta helicopters. After that, the series of tests was continued in the United States.

It is emphasized that the Spike NLOS will not replace the Hellfire missile, which has a range of approximately 8 kilometers. The US Army wants to keep alternative weapons.

        A very interesting story of the adoption of this missile into service. During the anti-terrorist operation in Gaza in 2014, Israel ran out of stock of Helfire missiles, Barack Hussein Obama, wishing to help his fellow believers, refused to supply Israel with missiles. Israel was forced to urgently "on the knee" adapt for Apaches and Spike NLOS drones. This decision turned out to be so successful that it worked for the Americans as well.

          32 km is not just a good solution. This is something that can restore the value of the attack helicopters to their former value. In the conditions of air defense of the leading edge, 10-12 km to the target is already on the verge of a foul for the helicopter. A little hesitated in time - play the funeral march.
          Jews are really great. They were the first to cross the 11 km line of missiles.

        especially since its production was planned in the United States, at the facilities of Lockheed Martin in Alabama.
        So you can take your time to develop your own alternative.
        PS
        but in Oleg Granovsky's LiveJournal I found the following
        According to the publication "Haaretz" dated 19.01.20, we are talking about the purchase of missiles in the amount of up to 60 million dollars. Moreover, "Haaretz" writes about the price of the rocket at $ 100,000 and the purchase of 2-4 missiles for each of the 300 available AH-64E Apache Guardian.

        so it's not a fact that the localization of production, which was written about in 2019, will be implemented

      If this missile is "certified" not only for helicopters that are in service with the United States and Israel, it will also be purchased in other countries.
      And even if the United States later makes an "analogue", it is not a fact that everything will switch to the American version.

      Moreover, the difference in range of 8 km and 32 km is very significant.

        The difference is not only in the range, but also in the method of guidance. The Hellfire's active radar head and the IR optoelectronic head are on Spike. Both have their pros and cons. Combined application can significantly expand the conditions of use and the range of tasks to be solved.

    NLOS is temporary pending the results of the Long-Range Precision Munition (LRPM) project. All this work is being carried out within the framework of a new strategy for breaking through ground-based air defense, it is called ALE. There will be new helicopters, new missiles and the main focus on new multi-functional UAVs. Northrop makes drones based on the Hero-400, in collaboration with the Israeli company UVision. They are launched from helicopters, guides from hellfires are suitable for this.
    These works will lead to the fact that the helicopter will be capable of destroying air defense systems, outside the coverage area of ​​ground-based radars, even theoretical direct radio visibility. Excluding factors impairing visibility.

      the discussion broke out on the topic "why is a helicopter like this."
      But the discussion is sane anyway. For over-the-horizon launch of anti-tank missiles, you can find a better carrier than attack helicopters.

          This is such a speed, only at the final stage of the flight, most of the time the rocket flies 170 m s-180 m s!

          The main section of the rocket's flight is horizontal, with a constant engine operation. In the final section, in the area of ​​capture of the target by the seeker, the rocket begins to dive. Here this is a conventional term that does not mean an angle of inclination of the trajectory of more than 30 degrees, it simply means that gravity begins to help, and not interfere with, movement. And then the speed gains up to 190 m / s.

    Depending on the trajectory and altitude of the launch from the turntables, the NLOS (II) range can exceed 32 km.
    Yes, the flight speed is at least twice less than the Hellfire, but this rocket in the second version is already super smart, it can receive target designation even from a UAV. This is not speed, but the technological qualities of this rocket ahead.
    Will destroy any Russian air defense system, while remaining undetected by their radars.
    Only a few countries have this super "smart-ass" ammunition in service with their turntables.

        There are precedents for the destruction of Russian-made air defense systems. They are trying to explain them somehow, but there is an indisputable fact: any air defense system can, at least, be overloaded and destroyed.

    There is a faster rocket at IAI called Lahat, only the range is only 10 km when launched from a helicopter, according to other sources up to 13 km.
    About a year ago, Rafael presented a commercial with the installation of new Spike ER IIs on helicopters, the missile's flight range was 16 km, when launched from ground-based installations, the same rocket flies 10 km.

      Lahat is not an ATGM, but a TUR. As far as I remember, they were supplied to Azerbaijan, in addition to India, but in a modification for a helicopter container they were installed on the Mi-17.

        And we got Lahat helicopters from the GPS (they are green), I was in the cockpit of one of these helicopters, the GPS at the exhibition, I even talked to the commander of this helicopter, he didn't want to say anything too much about equipment, he said "no comment."
        But the OES MOSP-3000D was fixed under the helicopter, and launchers with the inscription IAI (Lahat) on the wings. Answering the question, he said that yes, this is Lahat, and the flight range is 10 km. Nothing else. And he gave me a seat in the place of the co-pilot, purely for a photo.

However, it is emphasized that this is a temporary option, then the United States intends to use a rocket of its own design on helicopters, but with characteristics like Spike NLOS.


    Most likely they will offer to sell a license or buy a manufacturer. But this is Israel's success anyway.

    The best anti-tank missile to date. Due to the long launch range, or rather the ultra-long range, the Apache survivability increases. That is, the output is an excellent system, taking into account the characteristics and capabilities of the rocket, and the characteristics and capabilities of the carrier.
    Due to the combined guidance system of the ATGM Spike NLOS, the Apache operator can rely on external reconnaissance data and launch on a target that is not initially observed by means of on-board detection systems. At the same time, I repeat, the launch range allows him not only to survive, but rather confidently destroy air defense systems of a small radius - ZU / ZSU / SAM. In short, a dangerous anti-tank system, which can very quickly appear on any sector of the front within the Apache combat radius, move along the front and in depth, confidently fight not only with tanks, but also with air defense systems, and other various targets.

    I think the Americans are cunning talking about their own development. Judging by experience, for example, a single FN MAG machine gun, a manual FN Minimi, a Piranha armored personnel carrier from Movag (in the Stryker States), a Beretta pistol, an ASRAAM air defense system, etc., they will tilt Israel and deploy licensed production of a modified version.
    The combined fire-and-forget guidance system and the ability to control the missile at any stage of the flight, with such a launch range, is much more efficient than the American fire-and-forget missiles. Having experience and having received new ones in the process of testing, the Americans cannot but understand this.

    It is a pity that such systems are not even foreseen in our country.

Own it means on their money and the result will belong to them, and what roots of the contractor will not matter Rafael or BAE will be able to participate in the competition without any problems.

        By the way, although you deny, but as a minmum you are a pro-Azerbaijani comrade hi Tell me, tell me why the Azerbaijanis did not equip their Mi-24 / -35 helicopters with these missiles?
        At a minimum, this would allow them to use attack helicopters more intensively, more efficiently and with minimal risks, and they were practically not visible due to ATGMs with a launch range in the zone of MANPADS damage and the presence of a large number of MANPADS in the Armenians.

          A lot of information is classified, only by snatches one can guess what was really there. It is customary here to belittle the Armenians, with which I strongly disagree. They were prepared, courageous, adequately armed. It is all the more interesting how Azerbaijan opened up its defense.
          I am interested in new technologies, new tactics, new ideas. Turkey / Azerbaijan use them, I am amazed at what leap Turkey has made over the past two decades, it is a full-fledged regional power.

            I read about Lahat on the Mi-8 / -17, and there is also an article with many comments.
            The question about Spikes and Mi-24 / -35 attack helicopters, somewhere from the middle of the war in Karabakh, I subscribed to many channels, but I have never seen Crocodiles with Spikes or Mi-8 / -17 among Azerbaijanis even at the parade, and so more cadres with their participation in the war.
            There are launches from Israeli 4x4 armored vehicles. Desert Cats are on the Pipe, there are none from helicopters.

              I also did not see it, there were 1-2 videos of the Mi-24 being used, but only with the NAR.
              I can guess. The Mi-8/17 is the best option for a relatively cheap upgrade, everything is hung on the pylons the same as on the drummer, there is a lot of space for equipment inside. On the third crew member, you can hang smart weapons control or make a separate place for the weapon operator, but at least 10 places. Where should the equipment be installed on the Mi-24? Is there a reserve of energy and space? Who will be in charge? There you need to redo the floor of the helicopter. Expensive and pointless.
              In general, the Mi-8 is a masterpiece of the Mil KB. The helicopter will not lose its relevance for the next 20 years. The best option for many weapons systems, electronic warfare, communications, etc.

              It is interesting to know about the electronic warfare systems that were used, but it will not be very soon or we will never know at all. It looks like they have a strict ban on information about it.

    We got a ready-made, fully worked out analogue of Hermes, with a longer range (25-30 km versus 15-20 km of the Hermes-A aviation version.)
    And even better if it is a version with a thermal imaging seeker. The Spike NLOS caliber (170mm) also increases the power of the warhead, in comparison with the Hermes-A (130mm).
    Apparently, there shouldn't be any problems with the volume of supplies.

    "The rocket has an average speed on the trajectory: 130-180 m / s" ... An easy target for Thors. It will be unpleasant, of course, to fight off missiles without being able to hit the carrier. On the other hand, in 4 minutes that the rocket flies at 30 km - at the command "air" the armored vehicles will set smoke and the target can go into cover. Below is a screen with a video of the same shooting at 32 km, the countdown of the flight time was kindly provided by the Pentagon.
    It becomes obvious that in battle formations, BMPs are needed with the ability to hit such targets with standard cannon armament, and receive target designation from tanks with a KAZ of the Afghanita type, whose missile radar detects 10+ km ...

        Shorad in my opinion will generally be useless against an ATGM like Spike.
        The maximum is an active defense system, which may save the complex itself, but it will not be able to prevent Spikes from destroying other equipment in the army that does not have active defense.

          The issue of saturation, if a 4 Shorad enhancement per Striker platoon (1 pieces), then it will cover. The concept is reminiscent of the BMPT.
          By the way, it is against the spike that the chances are great, at least the radars and their control system on it are Israeli, and this is more than half of the success. As you know, your weapon works better against your own.

            In my humble opinion, both of these complexes have no chance against an armed ATGM attack helicopter with a range of 20-25 km and a combined guidance system. They will not be able to hit either the carrier or the missile, and with an organized and coordinated attack by a pair of helicopters, these air defense systems / air defense missile systems have no chance at all.

              Why, then. The rockets are very slow-moving and have huge wings. A typical target for TOR, for example, on all training firing, is the Saman target missile, this is a modified Osa air defense missile. The spike flies several times faster, the spike is much smaller in size. The NLOS spike flies quite high, you can see it remarkably because the target is contrasting against the background of an empty sky. By all the main parameters, we can judge that TORs can shoot down this easily. The question of the quality of management personnel is more relevant: D

    SAM "Thor" is unlikely to be often designated as a target for attack helicopters, their enemy is SAM / SAM of a lower rank. Here the question is, what will be able to oppose and make the Pantsir air defense missile system or the Sosna air defense missile system, or the Derivation avenue air defense system?
    With SAM "Tor", etc. other means will struggle. The long launch range ensures the safety of the attack helicopter from MANPADS and ZU / ZSU / SAM / ZRPK in tactical formations or in columns on the march, what else needs to be proved?

    Returning specifically to the Thor air defense missile system and the first war in which they took part.
    The Armenian complexes, as I understand it, knocked down 1 unit. Su-25 and several Azeri UAVs, their own losses amounted to 4 units. these air defense systems out of the available 6 units.

    The cadets are Armenians, they study with us, not on Mars, they have their own general military school, but nothing more. We conduct joint exercises and, in fact, are the backbone of military science and a source of knowledge in the CSTO, here, first of all, we had gaps, but we persistently do not want to admit this. Explanations like those that the "Tor" air defense missile system turned out to be ineffective, because the Armenians are crooked and simply mean, and they have no basis.
    Again, the war in Karabakh is the first real war for the Tor air defense system, and the war was fought with the most modern Western systems. Instead of dipping or dipping into the well-known Armenian anti-aircraft gunners, it is necessary to disassemble and study their experience down to microns. They fought, and did not flee from the battlefield, throwing the air defense system to the enemy as trophies. And they fought relying on the knowledge and weapons received from us and from us, their defeat is essentially our defeat. We look very ugly when we push everything onto them.

    You write - if you put the "Tor" air defense system in the SAR; and what will change? My opinion is that Thor will be beat and screwed up again. The Syrian calculations are no better than the Armenian ones, the Armenian ones are not worse than ours, but the army with experience and capabilities will be much richer and stronger, respectively, than the Azerbaijani army to fight against them. One cannot expect a better result than in Karabakh.

    There is a fact, the first real war and the "Tor" air defense missile system FUCKED, our system and the vision that we taught the Armenians screwed up. Perhaps technically "Thor" is more perfect than any analogues, but it is a piece of iron without people, systems, experience, and a piece of iron useless, because our system has shown itself to be worthless.

    The Armenians used not only the Osa air defense system, but also the Tor-M2KM air defense system 4 and 6 of which were destroyed by the Azerbaijanis. I repeat, you are above proposing to put the same "Thor" air defense system in the SAR, you are broadcasting about the fact that he is supposed to be able to do something against the Israelis. But I repeat once again, the Syrian calculations are not better than the Armenian ones, but the Israelis are a much stronger adversary than the Azerbaijanis, and what will be the result? My opinion The "Thor" air defense missile system of the Syrians will be destroyed by the Israelis even faster than the Armenian "Thor" air defense missile systems by the Azeris.
    And you continue to tell me about the eop and be clever and rude.
    And I repeat once again, the Armenian anti-aircraft gunners studied in our schools, they participated in joint exercises with us, and they were not more stupid or dumber than you, and it was not Pashinyan who sat there and fired from a "Tor". They faced a situation and a war that no one had ever encountered before. The same actions of the Turks in Syria or Libya, when they used their TV2 "Bayraktar" drone on a relatively large scale, this is childish fuss, compared to what the Azerbaijanis did and what the Armenian anti-aircraft gunners faced.

    Well, to your eop ZRPK "Pantsir" - it was destroyed by the Turks in Syria and Libya, and the Israelis in Syria.

    I repeat again, the ZU / ZSU / ZRK / ZRPK is just a piece of iron, even if it is a magnificent piece of iron and surpasses its counterparts in many respects, outside the system, without human brains, it is NOTHING. And this has been proven over and over again, but instead of analysis and conclusions, albeit at our level, we blame everything on others and continue to broadcast about performance characteristics.

    "The only destroyed" air defense missile system "Tor" was discovered and observed by a UAV in a fully operational condition. At the same time, the "Thor" itself did not find the UAV, so the crew calmly moved to the shelter.
    Therefore, I suggested that the "genius strategist" and the marshal of the sofa troops watch the video in detail.
    The second Armenian air defense missile system "Tor" was destroyed on the march when changing positions, 3 and 4 were destroyed in positions and working.

    Perhaps the Armenians are lying in order to inflate the loss to bring down their Pashinyan, but the information is so far. It is impossible to understand everything, because the Azerbaijanis do not publish all the videos of the destruction of this or that equipment, hiding the tactics, techniques and means of destruction used in a particular case.

      I only read about this:
      Armenia lost four of the six Russian-made Tor-M2KM anti-aircraft missile systems (the most modern models) deployed in Karabakh in the first 15 days of the war, and half of the entire NKR air defense was destroyed in 15 minutes on September 27.

      This was stated by the former secretary of the Security Council of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Samvel Babayan.
      According to him, after the destruction of the "Thors", four more complexes were sent to the combat zone.

      Of the six Buk air defense systems, only one was in working order. In the first minutes of the war, units of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces destroyed 10 Osa air defense systems and one S-300 air defense system.

      Quote:
      "There was no weapon. The air defense was at zero. There were 6 TORs, of which 4 were destroyed in the first 15 days. Then they sent 4 more, which can provide a maximum of 45 km. Of the 6 BUK-5 units were inoperative, a repair team was waiting from Moscow to to be used by the 10th. "

    Perhaps you are an expert and you are right. I think they are different.
    Calculate the cost of our equipment destroyed or damaged in parking lots during attacks from MLRS to artisanal strike UAVs ... As far as I know from the media, we were able to reduce the losses of our aircraft on the ground not due to the Pantsir air defense missile system, but due to the construction of fortified shelters for equipment, pushing the security perimeter even further forward and increasing the number of cover.
    War is also money, while in this regard, in terms of efficiency, we cannot boast of anything particularly in terms of the discussed air defense missile systems and air defense systems.
