The US Air Force announced the implementation of a "record-long range" missile launch from an F-15 fighter

64

The American press reports about "unique" missile tests that were carried out by the US Air Force at the Eglin test site. Reports say that the tests involved an F-15 fighter that was lifted from Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida.


From reports coming from the United States Air Force:

Air Force fighter F-15C Eagle carried out a record-breaking missile launch. As a result of the missile launch, the BQM-167 "Skeeter" drone was shot down as a target.

At the same time, the messages do not contain specific data on how far the American Air Force fighter fired the missile.

According to some reports, a modification of the AIM-120D AMRAAM rocket was launched. Earlier it was reported that it can cover a distance to the target of 100 miles (about 161 km).

What is known about the air target


UAV BQM-167 "Skeeter" is equipped with a MicroTurbo Tri 60-5 + engine. It is capable of speeds up to 0,92 M (up to about 1,1 thousand km / h). The maximum flight altitude is 15 thousand meters. The drone is capable of intensive maneuvering - at overloads up to 9 g. At the same time, he can shoot heat traps - "distracting" the ammunition fired at him.

It is known that missile tests in the United States were carried out with the participation of servicemen from the 28th Test and Assessment Squadron and the 83rd Fighter Squadron. aviation air force squadrons. The reports say that the Air Force is working to increase the range of destruction of targets "to reduce the risks associated with the activities of enemy air defense."

        Progress however. As I remember, they put beacons on the target, at least all targets imitating ballistic missiles were equipped with such ... that's interesting, for a "record" launch (to fix a "record") did they resort to these techniques? Although it was originally created as a target, then its functions were further expanded, like they tried to use it as a jammer. And judging by the drone at such a distance, it already glows like a flashlight.

            They usually shoot at 2/3 of the maximum range. For reliability. The missiles are not cheap, the ammunition is small.
            And here, apparently, they were training at the maximum range.
            The new F-15 series has a lot of missiles - 22 pieces. And you can shoot from great distances.

                The missiles are not much more expensive than the R-77 on the foreign market, the flight hour of the F-35 is comparable to the F-18C / D (read)

                The difference in military budgets is every 15 (?).
                For example, we destroyed the Georgian air defense with KHARMs

                Where did you get the HARMs, buy them from the USA? smile
                The MiG 31 has been spitting V-V missiles at the same distance for a long time

                The MiG-31 missiles are much smaller, they are less suited for attacking maneuverable targets (Max overload is only 24g, versus 36g for the AIM-120 / R-77-1). And Mig carries few of them ..

If there are any "sticks", it is here. We have no such targets.

                    What does the 10 dead pilots have to do with it? There were 2 Su-34 aircraft in total. What are 320 km, again caps in the air?

      Yes, it is clear how such records are made, a Luneberg lens was hung on the target, the flight is straightforward at low speed, all the conditions were created for the rocket to hit the target at its end, there is a record, but in reality a bunch of puddles, but the Pindos will clap

        The attack to the maximum range is carried out on a radio contrast target at the maximum altitude in the stratosphere, in the PPS (front hemisphere), at an angle of 0/4, at the maximum supersonic speed against a supersonic target. Well, if they are far from aviation, then at least physics should be respected !? wink

            Well, whoever should give me grades in physics, it's definitely not for you! Not only in physics - two !, but, as they say in my profession - your discretion is unsatisfactory! Look at my nickname, remove the first 4 letters from my initials with the surname, further nothing suggests a deep thought ??? wink The maximum range of the station capture (even the same Zaslon) directly depends not only on the RCS, but also on the maximum difference between the speeds of the fighter and the target, i.e. the attack taking place in the PPP (speaking on the civil-collective farm "head-on"). The work of the TTRD AUR is also very limited in time and is, as a rule, about two and a half tens of seconds, then the flight by inertia. So the maximum launch range is provided in terms of ensuring the maximum speeds Vst + Vr + Vc (at the maximum ceiling of the aircraft) under the target angle at zero quarters R = 0/4. At R = 4/4, Vc approach decreases by Vts. (what is the perspective of the goal, I think you will find somewhere in nete). The target attack in the ZPS ("in pursuit" on the collective farm) is carried out at ranges that are several times smaller than in the PPS. For this reason, a deep modernization of the MiG-25P was carried out, which led to the creation of my favorite MiG-31. , if possible, the PN was directed only to the teaching staff. The MiG-25 now has this ability to "catch up" with its R-40. Of course zadolb wait until the PR lights up at the PPI, the ZDRka is less than usual at times, but it's real to work! Of course, I will not give real "figures" here, they differ from fast food, laid out for the Internet / layman.
            Py.Sy. Aircraft maneuverability is not the premitivism you associate with low speed. In aerodynamics, there are concepts such as the stability of an aircraft in terms of speed and stability in terms of overload. The first is irrelevant, although I can explain it in a simple way. So the second concept is directly related to the maneuverability of the aircraft. And the types of overloads are as follows: normal, longitudinal and lateral. Aerobatics is usually calculated with normal Ny overload.
            Ny = Y / G, where Y is the lift and G is the airplane's lift. In turn, already
            2
            Y = Cy × pV / 2 × S, where Cy is the lift coefficient, p is the density in-ha, V is the aircraft speed, S is the wing area.
            Lateral overload Nz = Z / G (the effect of lateral aerodynamic forces on the weight of the aircraft) is usually equal to 0 and is most often not taken into account (restrictions on fighters are on average up to 2 units)
            Longitudinal overload Nx = (PX) / G,
            P is thrust, X is drag, G is the weight of the aircraft.
            Depending on the maneuver and the stage of a particular maneuver, all three aerodynamic formulas for the effect of overload on an aircraft are calculated using the aerodynamic scheme.
            In principle, I do not plan to paint the course further. Or do you have anything to introduce for a more detailed course on subsonic and sv / sonic aerodynamics?
            And yet, I do not know who you are by profession, steelmaker, combine operator, cook or microbiologist, but I have enough "experience" not to go into the bottle on the basis of "heard somewhere", and therefore I approve my opinion on the topics of alloys, grain crops , baking cakes and breeding healthy mold.

                This will not tell us "warriors" either. The element base in the Russian Federation is fully welded. In the union, it was mainly produced on the territory of the Ukrainian SSR, a little in the Baltic states, with the restoration - sadness, itching 10 years ago, as they began, but with all the peculiarities of Russian reality that we observe outside the window. Another example is the town of Ussolye Sibirskoe near Irkutsk, a mono-town (but even with trams crawling through a large forest village) was created under the only plant in the union for the production of liquid crystals and everything connected with them. Now the population for the most part, according to the main types of labor activity, is numerous baths, prostitutes and taxi drivers (delivering the second to the first).

            Well, then they either lied that they did not work according to sv / sound, or they lied about reaching the maximum launch range. It is achieved by AUR only under the conditions I indicated. But I think that after all, the range is lazy, physics has not been canceled, the principle of operation of the turbojet engine is the same, the rocket in size has not changed significantly at times, which means that there is nowhere to physically take a significant increase in the range. All that of the missiles flies far and faster than the rest (medium range) - dimensions are not small

              Before spreading footcloths from your notes, you read the article thoughtfully again, there is not a word about the supersonic target, you have already invented it yourself, the target has a maximum speed of 0.92 max, what supersonic sound !? Watch your unsatisfactory diligence. Surely the F-15 climbed to the "ceiling" of 20 km, due to the "lens" the RCS in the target's PPS was increased, respectively, detection, capture and launch at maximum range, the target did not maneuver, therefore the rocket did not lose energy when turning to the target.

                Before getting in with your satisfied "opinion" for prudence, you must have an elementary understanding and at least consideration. What you took for a synopsis "footcloth" is not even 1% of what is in the head of the flight crew, you have written elementary things as a keepsake in which you did not get the hang of it! What the nafig dovorotov, what kind of fantasies? Why did you drag them in at all?

                Although a sea cruiser on balloons, and hung with additional corner reflectors, launch it into the air - it WILL NOT GIVE THE MAXIMUM RANGE OF AURS WITHOUT ST / SOUND !!!. This seems to be far from your understanding of physics.
                With your non-inclusion obstinacy of the "well-read for aviation manager" (collective farmer, steelmaker - underline the necessary), come the associations of a folk saying, where my opponent, not having mastered the essence, mistook the beads of elementary knowledge for footcloths.

                    For the same R-33, depending on the position of the target, the automatic directs the missile at the target in ballistics, and maybe at the PMA. Those. I, for example, captured the B-52 and when the target enters the ZDR, let me launch at the same 130 km, being, well, at the same 20 thousand meters, and the target at 10. That is, with Taking into account the length of the ballistic trajectory, did I hit the target from a distance of 160 km? Have you forgotten your masterpiece, the difference is 10 km, a total of 170 km? Bingo!!! Yes, here on the Shnobel Prize pulls! fellow

                      Yes, but the ballistics of the R-33 and AIM-120 are different, the first has a diameter of 380 mm, a rudder span of 1180 mm, a weight of 490 kg, and the second has 178 mm, 445 mm, 160 kg.

              Most likely, they taught the new version of the f-15 to make launches at supersonic speed, the previous record was set at f22, and the f-15 has higher speed characteristics and the launch range may be greater.

                Well, yes, most likely the pairing of the materiel with the AUR. One could have imagined (fantasized) if they had hung AIM-54 (Phoenix, Tomkat on the F-14) on the YF-12! It was an interceptor under development, which did not go into production; its reconnaissance / variant SR-71 turned out to be in the series. What would the Phoenix then show the launch range, instead of 180 km ?! Unfortunately, it is impossible to calculate, we do not have exact data, only to estimate interpolated. Thank God the project stalled

                  In those cases, it was not enough to hang up, and the launch itself at high speed must be carried out.
                  I'm wondering if our Su-35 has the ability to launch supersonic missiles or not?

                    Sure! Not even a question. What then is the point in sv / sonic missile interceptors? Do you catch up with him on Mach 2 -3 and start slowing down to start the AUR? Of course not! All the aircraft known to us, even the 2,3 generation, the same Su-9,11,15, Yak-28P, MiG-21,23,25 ... F-100 Super Saber, F-102, 106 Delta Dart and Daguerre, F-4 Phantom, 5Tiger and others. Aviation missiles often have a higher intrinsic speed than missiles, i.e. from 1 km / sec and ... In the F-102 AUR interceptor, the Falcon is generally vigorous / loaf of bullets at the planes, and it is better to run away from the actually produced "cloud" on the light / sound. With those small launch ranges (in the 60s), the radius of destruction in the air in the air was 5 kilometers for sure.

                  And nothing that all these 100+ km for the Phoenixes, that for the P-33 \ 37 and any Amraams are just beautiful theoretical figures and in a real battle between modern fighters it is good if an enemy fighter can be shot down from 30 km.

                    Nothing, right, but with reservations. These are not beautiful "theoretical", but beautiful "practical" figures, achieved in beautiful, ideally exposed ideal polygon conditions. wink
                    In February 1996, it was lucky for me to meet with Taskaev (you know, I think this), they spoke for the MiG-31M and R-37, talked about the work on the group target (3) on Ashuluk with the defeat of all 3. I was impressed by the range of capture, launch and defeat, to be honest. I will not voice them on the Internet, they are slightly different from the "official" ones, but impressive.
                    The launch range of 130 km, even the range - this is for the strategist, for the fighter, of course, less (well, not 30, why so? smile ), and even less for KR. The MiG-31 is not intended to drive fighters, but CR and their carriers, and since these carriers have a lot of CR and with a small RCS, and the AUR on board is small compared to them, and besides, the mathematics is included in the amount of funds for impact on the unit with the specified probability, then it is necessary to beat the carriers to the discharge lines of the launching revolvers. And then the launch and capture ranges are higher, and you can cover more clients .... Well, this is all clear - "the basics of the whole air defense of the whole world"

                      The launch range is 130 km, even the range is according to the strategist
                      The chronicles give other figures:
                      A unique flight experiment was carried out in 31 on an experimental MiG-1993M aircraft with a modified Zaslon-M armament control system, during which an air target was detected at a distance of about 320 km and hit by a missile from a distance of almost 230 km.

                      It is clear that the launch was towards, and the parameters of movement of the carrier and the target are not indicated, but for a "record" interception it will be enough.

                        130 km is the P-33, and the P-37 in the group worked (according to Roman Petrovich Taskaev) with a slightly greater range and the capture and launch of missiles than you indicated (I will not sound here, I beg your pardon, but "down"). It was an interesting meeting, he came to us together with another legend, with Pugachev (he could not resist - he asked for an autograph, he "spoiled" the document for himself) repeat )
                        In regimental practice, these parameters are very seriously dependent on the use of materiel (the regiment was armed with "simple" 31 and DZ (the same xpen, only a side view and with a barbell), there were no boards with the S-800A). We had one completely tortured board, which worked at ranges, like on the MiGar 23 (immediately the school flights came to mind).
                        And at the same time, on another, also very not new, apparatus with a different board number, 10 years ago, I flew in an exercise on air combat on SV and BV. I worked as usual with the aiming of the PN on the target, the fuel was still "fly and fly", the station was not turned off. And here, not on the machine, but manually (the capture range is less) on the OI of the radar, we catch a fellow returning from the ceiling, but having already extinguished the speed before subsonic sound and leaving for a pre-landing maneuver. Goes under 3/4, i.e. almost sideways, the speed difference is at the limit (according to the station's operating conditions), and we captured it "hand-to-hand" at a distance of 1.5 times higher than our maximum airplane flight time! I already rubbed my eyes - wasn’t I made a mistake (well, it happens!) And nufuga, she! They immediately clicked for OK funds (what if they won’t believe it and prove that it’s not a Camel), asked the KP to work on the second goal. But they didn’t give it, my colleague had a "residue" under the bleed, only for landing and re-entry. We came home, taxied, to meet the engineer, show the pictures, smile at all 32. Before Serdyukov's reduction of "all after 40", the RRNO engineer was a bright mind, he debugged the materiel and debugged it to normal. Skillful fingers. Now these hands with a retired rifle are chasing bears over volcanoes. Today the regiment and materiel are different, with an upgrade. The old simple and Bashek are probably no longer anywhere in the country.

                        I cited the official developer's message about the events of 93, given that there was an upgrade, in 96 most likely it became even better. Your case confirms the principle that you need to follow the technique and be able to work on it, otherwise you can "miss" the target sticking out on two indicators within a minute

    To imagine its size.

    The main thing is AFAR to detect this small target at such distances, and the seeker of the missile to firmly catch on to the target without missing it. As for me it is commendable.
    And so the capabilities of the rocket and the target are far from comparable, unless of course it is AIM120D, as the author suggests.
    The target has a speed of 1100 km / h,
    the rocket has 4900 km / h.
    The target has a 9G maneuver,
    missiles up to 40G.

        Not. Moreover, a lot depends on what speed the target is flying towards if 500 km / h then this is one range if 1000 then the launch range will be greater and so on.

    Yes, straightforward and no maneuvers.
    Possibly even with a beacon and / or lens.
    This is not the point, but to confirm the technological feasibility of the new engine.
    It will also come to a new head, there can be no doubt about it. Moreover, there are already ready-made multichannel ones, which, unfortunately, are not yet available to us.
