Kalashnikov completed the delivery of Vikhr-1 guided missiles to the Ministry of Defense ahead of schedule, thus fully fulfilling the state defense order in 2021. This was reported by the press service of the concern.


The missiles passed the required tests and confirmed the compliance with the requirements of the military. The delivery was carried out within the framework of the state defense order significantly ahead of schedule and in full.

The Kalashnikov group of companies delivered the Vikhr-1 guided missiles to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation ahead of schedule, scheduled for delivery in 2021

- said in a statement.

In February of this year, the Kalashnikov concern announced the planned modernization aviation guided missile "Whirlwind". The work should start this year. It is assumed that the modernization of the missile will take place within the framework of the program for the unification of the armament of the Ka-52 and Mi-28NM helicopters, and the new missile will go into service with the Night Hunter.

The 9K121M Vikhr-M missile system with the 9M127-1 Vikhr-1 missile was developed at the end of the eighties at the Tula Instrument Design Bureau (KBP) and was intended for installation on attack aircraft and attack helicopters. The complex was officially adopted in 1992, but mass production began only in 2013, when a contract was signed for the production of missiles in the amount of 13 billion rubles. Rearmament to a new missile system was carried out in the period from 2013 to 2015.

The main purpose of the missile is to destroy armored vehicles, including those with active armor, as well as air targets at speeds up to 800 km / h. Its launch height is up to 4000 meters, and the maximum firing range is 10 kilometers.

The complex was used on Su-25 attack aircraft and Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters.

    And, above the plan, a certain number, I hope, have been created for the "North Wind"? ?? It is necessary to cool the hot Vukrievskie heads with something serious. ..

      Who will tell you such a "terrible military secret"? There is a nuance, only the beginning of the year, and the order has already been completed in a year. Or journalists (they are), or a small number. Well done, though. The path of this rocket to the troops is long.

      From what carriers should they launch these missiles? Better to put the "Cornets"

    That all two pieces are straight !?
    Sarcasm for those who are not teachable.
    Looks like a very small order, I hope the modernization will be successful, and then, as they say, in full, and in three shifts.

        And what confuses you in my statement? Do you really think that it is possible to fulfill an order calculated for a year in three months?
        I believe that the order was so small that it was completed in a quarter, and that was the sarcasm that only a couple of missiles were made.

          And the fact that they could, that year, on their own initiative, accumulate missiles for the warehouse, having insider information that they would take everything away, it is impossible to believe? And even if they did it in three months, obviously they not only release vortices, they finished with them, and the same people are now engaged in another matter.

            on an initiative basis, to build up missiles for the warehouse, having insider information that they will take everything,

            It is immediately evident with the state order, you did not work, this is not how things are done with these guys.
            You have not read the article carefully, this year it is planned to modernize this product. Consequently, the old contract has ended, and the new one will be concluded after the modernization, or maybe not, if they screw up with the modernization.

              Well, here at the plant they managed to assemble several bombers unscheduled and hand them over in advance, so why can a wife make several hundred missiles?

          Yes Easy. A new "head" was installed on the previously released C-8s.

    the modernization of the missile will take place within the framework of the program for the unification of the armament of the Ka-52 and Mi-28NM helicopters, the new missile will arrive for service "Night Hunter".


    I doubt it. The Mi-28 sighting and navigation system was created for "Shturm" and hardly anyone will remake it for a piece product with unclear prospects. The Mi-28NM will have a different range of missile weapons, including a new missile (presumably with a multispectral seeker). Moreover, the "Whirlwind" will not give the helicopter new capabilities. 6-8 km. - This is a "line of sight" missile, and promising systems should operate at radar ranges, that is, up to 20 km.

    The complex was used on the Su-25 attack aircraft.

    No, it was not used. There was a project of a modernized Su-25T attack aircraft (aka Su-39), but these aircraft never went into serial production. It was on them that this "Whirlwind" was to be applied.
