An unnamed coastal missile system will be fired in Estonia

37

On July 22, near the village of Undva on the island of Saaremaa, Estonia, the military prepares to launch a missile launch from an unnamed coastal anti-ship missile system, which the Estonian army intends to purchase. These shootings will be held for demonstration purposes.


To ensure the safety of local residents, access to the area where the event will take place will be limited.

There will also be a presentation of the complex, the name of which has not yet been disclosed.

The demonstration missile launches were organized by the Estonian Defense Forces, the Estonian Navy and the volunteer formations of the Defense League.

The tender for the purchase of a coastal missile system is planned to be implemented as part of the development plan of the Estonian Navy for the next four years.

And although there have not yet been official reports from the General Staff of the Defense Forces about which specific complex they have chosen there, experts have their own assumptions on this score. They are based on the fact that several times during the Spring Storm exercises, Polish mobile complexes equipped with NSM anti-ship missiles were transferred to Estonia. There is reason to believe that the Estonian military will receive exactly this weapon.

The maximum range of this complex is 220 km. True, in the absence of the possibility of over-the-horizon detection of targets, its effective range does not exceed 40 km.

            Why such secrecy? And why is my version so hostile to you at once .. Weren't there such sales? Israel has long been selling arms to our opponents on our borders through third parties, and lately it has been very intensive.

        Against whom does Estonia plan to install coastal anti-ship missile systems? Their allies are in the west of the Baltic. In the east, Russia has a large enough land border with Estonia for a land offensive, making this purchase completely worthless. Waste of money. How are the cities founded by the Russians of Yuryev, Narva, Kolyvan doing there? Isn't it time for them to follow the Crimea to their native shores?

      They do not have rusty ships, which used to catch sprat, for the entire population of the Soviet Union. They cut it into metal for a long time.

      In terms of the money and secrecy that Estonia has (so as not to be mocked if anything), it looks like a test of Neptune.

    yeah, I had a classmate / classmate / fellow countryman from Krasnodar, and was assigned to Tallinn. so this was still a patriot of Russia in the old days. today, not so long ago, I met a typical bourgeois rascal, and my son was an officer of the NATO Estonian army.

    Probably talking about this:

    The NSM (Naval Strike Missile) anti-ship missile was developed by the Norwegian company Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace to replace the Norwegian Penguin anti-ship missile system in the Royal Norwegian Navy [and entered service in 2007. It is equipped with the latest Norwegian frigates of the Fridtjof Nansen type and missile Skjold boats, which are classified as coastal corvettes in Norway.
    The NSM missile can hit both surface and ground targets. Its length is 3,96 m, weight is 407 kg. In the design of the rocket, measures were taken to reduce the radar and thermal signature (composite and radio-absorbing materials are widely used, the surface of the body does not have contrasting slots and sharp edges). Missiles are placed in containers. NSM has a lifespan of 30 years with re-certification every 10 years.

    The NSM anti-ship missile is launched using a solid-propellant launch booster. Then the small-sized turbojet engine (turbojet engine) TRI 40 of the French company Microturbo is switched on, which provides a maximum flight speed of 0,95 M (~ 1163,8 km / h). The firing range is from 3 to 185 km or more (some sources say the maximum range is 200 km and even over 220 km).

    On the cruising section of the trajectory, the rocket is controlled by an inertial control system with correction according to signals from the GPS satellite system, and also uses the TERCOM automatic terrain avoidance system (in case of flight over land). NSM flies at a minimum altitude along a pre-programmed complex trajectory, bypassing terrain obstacles over land, as well as areas with enemy air defense.

    In the final stage of flight, the missile approaches the target in the most vulnerable sectors, performing random maneuvers that complicate its interception by means of naval air defense. At this time, an anti-jamming thermal imaging homing head (GOS) is turned on with the possibility of autonomous target selection (the GOS compares the resulting image of the target with templates of images of typical targets that are stored in the memory of the guidance system). The seeker has increased sensitivity and an extended field of view, which makes it possible to detect a target even when its thermal field is reduced using the water protection system.

    The warhead of the missile is a penetrating high-explosive fragmentation weighing 120 kg with a time delay in the initiation of an explosive, providing a multivariate detonation depending on the type of target.
    Australia (NSM and JSM), Canada (NSM and JSM) and Italy (JSM) are also considered as promising export markets, but Poland became the first foreign buyer of NSM anti-ship missiles, and in the coastal version. On December 30, 2008, she signed a contract with Kongsberg for 800 million Norwegian kroner (about $ 144,6 million) for the supply of the first squadron of coastal missile systems (DBK) with similar anti-ship missiles. These are 23 self-propelled vehicles, including six launchers (PU) and 12 NSM missiles.

    It is not clear why this particular test site was chosen.
    It would be logical to use Suur-Pakri or Väiki-Pakri, where in the old days there was a training ground, and the study of the radius of destruction is also better.

    The coastal missile system is good. But based on current trends, a complex based on percussion UAVs is also needed. It will continue to be cheaper.
