Javelin and Kornet: a Western publication called the conflict in Ukraine a struggle of anti-tank missiles

66

Anti-tank weapons are one of the main directions of Western supplies to Ukraine. The United States and NATO believe that with the help of anti-tank missiles, the Ukrainian army will be able to restrain the advance of Russian troops. But after all, Russia also has effective anti-tank weapons, writes the Western edition of Insider (not to be confused with the Russian edition-foreign agent).


We are talking about Kornet anti-tank missiles that can compete with Javelin and NLAW, which the West supplies to Ukraine. As Brent Eastwood, a writer for the Western publication Insider, notes, the Russian military considers its missiles even more effective than American or British ones. The Kornet has a great range and speed; the rocket has been demonstrated more than once at international army games.

According to Eastwood, the Ukrainian military is demonstrating impressive success in the fight against Russian armored vehicles, but one should not forget about the tendentiousness of the foreign press: even attempts at independent analysis are not free today from a propaganda raid. Whether Ukrainians are successful or unsuccessful against Russian armored vehicles, the fact remains that it is Russia today that is conducting a military operation in Ukraine and taking control of one city after another, and not vice versa.

Eastwood calls operation in Ukraine an anti-tank missile competition, not a battle tanks with tanks. It is anti-tank missiles, in his opinion, that are becoming decisive weapons in conflict. Probably, the military-political leaders of the United States and NATO also think, since the main emphasis in military supplies for the needs of the Ukrainian army is placed precisely on anti-tank weapons.

The author in the Western media emphasizes that the Kornet, unlike the Javelin, requires service by two servicemen, for firing it must be installed on an armored vehicle. American and British anti-tank missiles in this regard are much lighter and more mobile, you can shoot from the shoulder. But the Kornet has a longer firing range, it easily destroys enemy bunkers or fortified firing points. The Cornet is a laser-guided direct-fire weapon like the NLAW, Eastwood points out.

The author concludes that the Russian army, if it wants to avoid the loss of tanks and armored vehicles, should move away from the tactics of moving in large and long columns of ground troops, which remain vulnerable to mobile groups of Ukrainian nationalists armed with Javelin or NLAW.

        The confrontation of armies is, first of all, the confrontation of people.
        And from a simple Berdanka you can shoot at the enemy. The same Houthis are now clearly showing the Saudis that resources and technical superiority by no means guarantee victory.
        Although, of course, technical superiority can significantly reduce losses.
        Well, competent and experienced command, of course. Even Napoleon said that a herd of sheep led by a lion is stronger than a flock of lions led by a ram.
        As for the Kornets specifically, the military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is mainly destroyed from the air.
        Here are the ambushes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - yes. Grenade launchers are used. And in the following decades, we must not forget who gave them to Kiev. Don't forget and don't forgive.

              My experience tells me that you have to do it differently. So far, in the heat of battle, you can greatly thin out those who cannot be left in the liberated territory ... and the rest, with them, too, in different ways. They themselves decided to filter out, apparently ... they run, they leave Nenko, they think there will be jelly banks and milk rivers for them.

                My son will graduate from Ryazan this year. I think they taught him there. Yes, plus dad and grandfather - you shouldn’t discount combat experience either.
                Some of his friends remained from his father. In office, generals. As my father tried to ensure that I did not serve in the construction battalion in Bashkiria, but in the 56th Guards ODShBR, where they shoot, so I will try to get my son "where necessary."

                It was touching at the airfield in Kabul when my father and I met. I, private, there. He, Lieutenant Colonel, back. There was no time. We hugged and he told me one thing - "DO NOT DISHAMINATE YOUR SURNAME".
                He did not disgrace. Three medals and an order with which the Motherland noted are confirmation of this.

                  And the rest, it happens in different ways ... combat missions, and there were other "humanitarian" missions, they were not noted for them in any way, most often they preferred to remain silent about them, and then forget.
                  However, this was a long time ago...
                  I only care about one thing, so that "frenzy, battle madness" does not touch any of our soldiers. There, and so much grief will be poured out on everyone, it can cover with a head.

        And because it was not in vain that "mothers" were gathered near the administration at 12.00. And arrival at 12.10. All of them should have been covered. And who is to blame? Well, you already know.

        My mother, when I was in Kandahar and Khost, did not go anywhere to hold meetings. I just sat at home, taught children math at school and waited for me to return. Alive and healthy. And I returned.

            My mother waited for me, but the girl who loved me "more than life" did not. She wrote that "you will return or not - it is not known. And youth (at 19 years old!) Is passing." And I left documents and medals for the platoon commander on the combat exit, and her photograph was in the left inner pocket of the HB.

                  a thermal imager can see a long-lasting beam of coherent light, especially in a not quite clean atmosphere, it is contrasty. Usually there is enough dust near the column or road and this makes it easier to detect the beam.
                  the problem is different - it is expensive, time-consuming and not reliable - for example, the beam can be covered with something. The beam from above (UAV attack) is much more difficult to detect, because it does not have very good contrast.

                    Nope. If, in your opinion, the "column escort vehicle" should, in your opinion, be able to "detect laser irradiation", then we are talking about the column that it covers.

                    The problem is that this is (generally) technically impossible. Then the question is - what were you thinking when you wrote it? That's very interesting.

                      what is already in operation - radar systems for detecting shelling with both shells and bullets, sound guidance systems, optical and thermal surveillance systems, there are radio exposure sensors with popular frequencies, light sensors, there is an UAV for visual inspection from above, and there is also a magnetic, chemical and radio trawl to track mines on the road
                      This is a hell of a lot of means by which most attacks on the convoy can be detected and localized. And all this already exists in the armies of different countries.
                      and I have also shown that non-directed laser irradiation from above can be seen by these means.

                        Did you write or who? So here it is:

                        - such a machine will be able to detect only self-irradiation. No more
                        - the smoke after exposure is detected is already useless, the ATGM will arrive earlier than you put the smoke.

                        such a machine would be able to detect exposure to itself. No more
                        - smoke and so on after radiation is detected is already useless. Just not in time, the ATGM will arrive earlier

                        judging by the video, the average flight time of such weapons is about a minute
                        at the same time, it does not fly right away - first they choose a target and prepare for shooting
                        Is there really no time at all to shoot a grenade with smoke towards the beam?
                        how long does it take for it to fly and explode?
                        I think you are swimming laughing
                        I'm far from an expert in this area, but there are the simplest things.
                        a Chinese tank is completely covered in smoke a second and a half after detecting a laser beam - there is a video
                        I think to prevent aiming at a car within 200 meters, 15 seconds is enough after detecting a beam thread.
                        What's so unreal???

    It is anti-tank missiles, in his opinion, that become the decisive weapon in the conflict.
    - this characterizes the level of "expert". The Javelin has its own advantages, the Cornet has its own, but this war will be won by high-precision weapons and MTR fighters, that is, Russia.

    Well, cunning "Western authors"! They know everything ... only in hindsight! They argue according to the principle: "I will solve someone else's misfortune with my hands ... but I won't help myself"! What can be "added"?
    1. Regarding the fact that the "Cornet" can only be installed on equipment, but not transferred: "Cornet" is also available in a portable version (it is transported "in a car" over a long distance; and on the battlefield it can be transferred from position to position. ..). When the "Cornet" was being developed, a portable short-range version of up to 2,5 km was also created ... But it did not go into production and into the troops ... apparently, they decided that it was "perfect" to do without it!
    2.the Russian army, if it wants to avoid losing tanks and armored vehicles, should move away from the tactics of moving in large and long columns of ground troops, which remain vulnerable to mobile groups of Ukrainian nationalists armed with Javelins or NLAWs.
    And where are the escort helicopters to gather for a large number of "short" columns? How can a small column effectively counter an enemy DRG? And "large and long" columns can be expedient ("effective") with the proper organization of column escort! UAVs can be effective for escorting columns; incl. and as part of columns of control machines (operators)! And another important point ... KAZs (!!!) on military (military) equipment!

      I studied over 20 years ago. Other textbooks, other unit states, other types of weapons and capabilities. But I remember how Afghan veterans were talking about the MANDATORY of the GRD, side guards and rear outposts. HOW can a long column fall into an ambush with complete air superiority, the presence of UAVs and organized combat guards, where in a battalion column is assigned to a company?

    Judging by the wrecked equipment, it is being destroyed by aviation and artillery, even when shots are fired from anti-tank systems at a column of armored vehicles in the direction of the shooters, a retaliatory strike is struck and they are destroyed. I wonder how widespread the use of Javelins and similar systems is and how effective they are❓It seems to me that they will not stop the offensive of armored formations.

      Javelin effectiveness is overrated. The final estimates will be clear after the operation, but even now we can say that the Javelin tank does not always disable.
      Light armored vehicles, yes, it destroys.

      when shots are fired from anti-tank systems, a retaliatory strike is struck in the direction of the shooters and they are destroyed.

      I do not agree. I watched a video of how Stugna works: the tripod is separately in ambush, the operator is separately in a more protected place. Next, the launch and defeat of, say, a tank with a crew of 3 people. And if a truck or an infantry fighting vehicle?
      Then a second shot from another installation, and so on.
      Return fire on whom? A discovered installation, or an operator in an unknown location?
      I wonder how widespread the use of Javelins and similar systems is and how effective they are❓It seems to me that they will not stop the offensive of armored formations.

      Efficiency can only be assessed by the result, and the result is the cities taken. Here we evaluate ... ((((

    It is anti-tank missiles, in his opinion, that become the decisive weapon in the conflict. Probably, the military-political leaders of the United States and NATO also think, since the main emphasis in military supplies for the needs of the Ukrainian army is placed precisely on anti-tank weapons.

    The news showed the awardees and told for what. The Nazis ambushed the Russian column, but there were "Solntsepeki" in it. They knocked, there was an ambush - there is no ambush with all anti-tank weapons. Against scrap - no reception.
