"RBS-70NG proved to be in all its glory": obsolete Soviet anti-aircraft guns are being replaced in the Czech Republic

In the Czech army, test firing took place from the recently presented RBS-70NG anti-aircraft missile system, which is intended to replace the outdated Soviet-made Strela-10 system.

The anti-aircraft unit from Strakonitsa should receive 16 portable RBS-70NG air defense systems of Swedish production by the beginning of July. They will complement the 16 old generation RBS-70 kits that soldiers have been using for several years. The RBS-70NG has several advantages over previous generation systems.



The most significant is the ability to fire at targets in both manual and automatic modes.

- indicated in the publication CZDefence, explaining that "the new complexes have shown themselves in all their glory."

Other advantages include lighter weight, greater compactness, the ability to fire in night mode and work on targets of the LSS category (Low, Slow, Small - "low, slow, small"), which include hard-to-find small-sized UAVs.

For the RBS-70NG MANPADS, the BOLIDE missile was specially developed, which, in comparison with the previous version of the Mk2, has a higher flight speed (by 100 m / s), range (9 km instead of 7), increased accuracy, better maneuverability and higher warhead efficiency.

Interestingly, the RBS-70 line belongs to the category of portable air defense systems, while the Soviet Strela-10, which is being removed from service, belongs to the self-propelled systems. The photo below shows an anti-aircraft unit from Strakonitsa with both types. weapons.

    Maybe 1000 m / s, and then the tram is some kind of speed (high-speed))).

      In vain are the Czechs fumbling with this rearmament .. Russia has already stated that they are our potential targets, however, like that "hornet's nest" which controls you from overseas .. This also applies to Poland, and Turkish fighters will not save you in case of anything ..
      Russia is focusing! soldier Russophobia and so on, it will cost you all VERY dearly this time .. Remember for ages!

      Больше on 100m / s

      Maximum speed: Mach 1.6 (Mark 0/1); Mach 2 (5 km in 12 seconds) (Mark 2 / BOLIDE)


      The difference in Mach 0.4 is about 100m / s

      Yes, let our Czech enemies - Russophobes - slowly run over rough terrain with a Swedish manual air defense system with a full ammo in their hands, if they so want it!
      Covering their firing points with the Russian Armed Forces - in case of war - will only be easier.

      Or is the enemy Czech Republic preparing for a guerrilla defensive war with Russia? Then the enthusiasm of the Czech Ministry of Defense from the Swedish air defense systems is understandable.

    It is not a problem to load a portable rocket onto any transport, you definitely cannot carry it with you, so the growth of opportunities is obvious. And if you also compare the capabilities of missiles ...
    With whom only they suddenly gathered to fight? They all seem to have their own neighbors, bourgeois. Really with Ukraine, there are no other violent ones. In words, they are a mountain for them, but in life they decided to renew the "armored train".

      It is not a problem to load a portable rocket onto any vehicle, but you definitely cannot carry it with you.

      And how many of those missiles should be loaded into transport if at least two launches are needed to ensure the destruction of an air target? And there can be more than one goal ...
      I agree that this is cheaper than the annual operation of equipment ... but a number of air defense systems can also be used for ground targets.

      It makes sense for us to have a similar, but combined complex with two guidance systems. In the first section, there is a laser reference, and in the second, IR seeker. With a range of 15 kilometers, the missiles are launched vertically from containers that are located around a control center similar to the RBS-70NG. For a short distance, it can be transported in a disassembled state; any truck is suitable for transportation over long distances. The complex can be made fully automatic, the person will only confirm the command to destroy.
