The timing of the start of serial deliveries of the S-8OFP "Armored Boy" aircraft missiles to the troops has been announced

39

The newest aviation The S-8OFP Armored-Gunner missile will begin to be serially supplied to the troops no earlier than 2023. This was told by the executive director of "Tekhmash" Alexander Kochkin.


According to him, which leads RIA News, The Ministry of Defense has not yet accepted the missile for service, the documents for it are being approved. Until these documents are signed, the military cannot purchase ammunition, despite their desire. Taking into account all the bureaucratic delays and manufacturing technology, there is no need to wait for serial missiles before 2023.

Unguided missile "Armor-piercer" completed state tests in 2018, in 2019 a batch of missiles was launched for experimental military operation. It was supposed to be put into service this year, 2021. At least that was the plan and it was talked about in "Techmash". The reasons for this shift are unknown to us, perhaps there are objective reasons for the long adoption of the missile into service.

As previously reported, the S-8OFP "Armored Boy" missile should complement the S-8 unguided missile family for use from aircraft and helicopters (Su-24/25, Mi-8 and others). It is designed to destroy light armored vehicles and surface ships at a distance of up to 6 km. Its peculiarity is that, depending on the task, it can explode when it hits an obstacle, in front of it or behind an obstacle. The caliber of the S-8OFP rocket is 80 mm, i.e. the same as its predecessors, but the charge power is much higher.

      Is the 6 km NAR in 2023 serious? In the 21st century, such missiles simply should not exist! It's a shame even to talk about new unguided rockets, let alone shifts to the right !!

        They have a right to life ... just do not need to present it as a scientific achievement ..... Correspondent 80mm is time to do it.

          No, NARs do not have the right to life. Helicopter and airplane pilots have the right to life! Only managed missiles at a minimum range of 8-10 km.
          LOGIR, APKWS, DAGR, GATR-L, TALON, RPM, FZ275 LGR, Cirit - all these are Hydra 70 upgrades making them manageable, tens if not hundreds of thousands have been ordered!
          Why are ours worse? Why send them to death, to attack from 2-3 km ?!

            I think the Armor Piercer will show itself in the ground systems of the small-radius MLRS, which were discussed recently at the VO.

            Did many people die in Syria during the attack on NURS? Although they work there regularly. There is plenty of video on the net. And they work from distances closer than 2 km. The targets and the enemy are different. And in most cases, a banal cheap NURS is enough.

        Is the 6 km NAR in 2023 serious?

        I agree with this - at least 10 km.
        Even talking about new unguided rockets is a shame

        Judging by how many of these missiles Russia is going to use (and not store) for their intended purpose, this does not look so ridiculous.
        Expensive ammunition is good for pinpoint clashes, for a large-scale war they simply won't have enough resources.

          For 10 km "uncontrolled" released from a mobile platform, will lead away from the target. Therefore, there is no sense in such a range for aircraft unguided missiles.

        I absolutely agree with you. The Americans have never in their lives used NURS from the Apache in battle. NURS is the "17th century".

          You did not fight in the 17th)) From the joke "I left my leg in 41st. - I went in 41st, Your leg is not there."
          Seriously though, the NURSs have saved thousands of soldiers' lives. It is also a kind of targeted strike, when it is necessary to suppress superior enemy forces. Yes, the distance is small, but the target is designed for it, a massive volley across the area.

      Let your "pissemists" change their hand - you will have a "shift to the left"
      A pessimist is a person who sees negativity in everything and does not hope for a successful outcome of events. Others get the impression that he even likes to “collect” failures.

      It is not known why the Russian authorities are making every effort to ensure that the ranks of those who do not believe in anything positive are steadily replenishing. Well, there is no reason for unbridled glee precisely because some crap constantly either puts sticks in the wheels, or tries to fit the fifth wheel to the cart, or croaks at the wrong time, or measures it once and cuts until the scissors are dull.

      ========
      God bless them, pessimists! "Shift to the right" can be not only due to technical, but also due to economic reasons! How it happened with "Armata" and PAK-FA!
      Of course, I would like to see new weapons arrive "as quickly as possible and as soon as possible" .... But ... Such a concept as GDP (not in the sense of Vladimir Vladimirovich, but in the sense of Gross Domestic ..) has not been canceled yet!
      Oh and I do not envy people who forced decide which of which created to accept in the first place, and what can wait ... And then there is all this abomination with corruption and other "joys" of the so-called. "market economy" ....

          What does air defense and tanks have to do with it? This is not an ATGM and its goals are different (listed in the article).

              Do you propose to send attack aircraft to layered air defense? It's okay that air defense should be suppressed in the first place, and then it's time for attack aircraft and helicopters.

                  Against planes, they are useless, and helicopters will just suppress all this trifle with their NARs and a cannon.

                      Perhaps he will have time to aim, but the question is that the effective range of the NARs is 1.5-2 thousand meters, but barreled artillery up to 30 mm is limited to 1-1.5 thousand meters. So, even with a good aim, you may not have time to shoot!

      As an inexpensive means of defeating columns on the march and undisguised infantry, it is quite suitable for itself. And recently, here on VO, an article was about the development of a light MLRS of the front edge or for urban battles under the C8 as ammunition. So who knows. Maybe you need it.
