ATGM "Chrysanthemum-S" in the Special Operation


"Chrysanthemum-S" on the march, February 2022

Since the end of February, the Russian army and militia of the two republics have destroyed several thousand Ukrainian armored vehicles of various classes and types. Self-propelled anti-tank systems 9K123 Khrizantema-S and their crews take an active part in such forced demilitarization. Due to the high tactical and technical characteristics, such ATGMs are capable of hitting any samples of armored and automotive vehicles available in Ukraine.

Complexes in battle

The combat use of 9K123 anti-tank systems became known already in the first days of the Special Operation. At the end of February, footage with such equipment on the march and in firing positions appeared in the media. It was reported that "Chrysanthemum-S" in different areas identify and attack Tanks and other priority targets, thereby supporting the offensive.

Not so long ago, new videos of the work of Russian anti-tank systems and their calculations were published. A small video on this topic was shown on July 14 by the Kherson Herald telegram channel. Apparently, the video was filmed shortly before its publication in the region of Kherson. According to the caption to it, the development of the use of missiles against Ukrainian armored targets is shown.

Two Chrysanthemum-S self-propelled combat vehicles in position in the field got into the frame. One of them raises the launcher and prepares to fire. Its operator through the optical channel finds and takes on tracking a remote target. Then there is a launch, and the rocket flies into the distance. Unfortunately, the moment the missile hit the target and the hit/destruction of the latter are not shown.

However, the press, military correspondents, bloggers, etc. repeatedly showed Ukrainian armored vehicles knocked out by Russian anti-tank systems. Among the destroyed objects were the targets of the Khrizantema-S complexes. At the same time, the effect of armor penetration, internal damage and fire is almost always the same - the enemy combat vehicle adds to the list of losses.

ATGM on the defense of Kherson, July 2022

Missiles in service

The future self-propelled ATGM 9K123 "Chrysanthemum-S" was developed by the Kolomna Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering. The project started back in the mid-eighties and incorporated the newest ideas and developments at that time. Work progressed well, but at the end of the decade, their pace slowed down due to well-known political and economic factors.

It was only in the nineties that it was possible to start testing experimental complexes and missiles. The process of working off and fine-tuning also turned out to be slow. In addition, the main customer, represented by the Russian army, did not have the financial ability to take the new ATGM into service in the near future and order its mass production.

The situation changed only in the 9s. In the first half of the decade, the 123K2005 Khrizantema-S complex passed all the necessary tests, and in XNUMX it was put into service. The Ministry of Defense placed the first order for serial equipment. The production of machines and missiles was mastered at the KBM and the Saratov Aggregate Plant with the participation of a number of other enterprises.

Serial ATGM "Chrysanthemum-S" are supplied to the ground forces and coastal troops of the Navy. They are intended for anti-tank units of motorized rifle and tank formations. With the help of such complexes, high-quality reinforcement and fire support of other forces and means are provided.

In the recent past, the 9K123 complex has been developed. The improved ATGM 9K123-1 is distinguished by an expanded composition of self-propelled vehicles. New command vehicles have been developed, the crews of which must manage the work of entire units. This increases the efficiency of detection, distribution and destruction of targets.

Launcher in firing position

The main customer of the Khrizantema-S ATGM is the Russian army. In total, at least several dozen such products were delivered. Perhaps the number of complexes has already exceeded 100-120 units. Azerbaijan has become a major customer of such equipment in the recent past. His army acquired 35-37 ATGMs.

Technical advantages

9K123 Khrizantema-S is a self-propelled anti-tank system with guided missiles. The basic version of the complex is based on the 9P157 combat vehicle and 9M123 series missiles. A set of auxiliary tools for teaching calculations, servicing products, etc. is also provided.

The upgraded ATGM 9K123-1 includes a self-propelled launcher 9P157-2, as well as combat vehicles of platoon commanders and batteries 9P157-3 and 9P157-4, respectively. The platoon commander's vehicle has standard weapons and additional means of communication and control. Instead of missiles, the battery commander's car received advanced optics and unit controls.

All combat and command vehicles "Chrysanthemum-S" are built on the chassis of the BMP-3. Due to this, high running characteristics and cross-country ability are provided. In addition, the machines float and can carry out launches from the water. ATGMs can accompany motorized riflemen, and unification simplifies operation and maintenance.

To survey the terrain, search and track targets, the gunner uses optical and radar stations. The fire control system has automatic and semi-automatic modes of operation. In both cases, the electronics track the target and the missile, and also controls the flight of the latter. At the choice of the operator, guidance is carried out by radio command or by flying along a laser beam.

Target search via optical channel

The machine has a lifting launcher with mounts for two missiles in transport and launch containers. It is possible to use both ammunition at the same time, provided that it is aimed in different ways. Inside the hull there is a drum stack for 15 TPKs with missiles. Reloading and preparation for launch are carried out automatically.

The 9K123 ATGM includes 9M123 series missiles. These are approx. 2 m, caliber 152 mm, weight 46 kg. They are made in elongated hulls with folding rudders and stabilizers. A unified solid-propellant engine is used, providing a speed of up to 400 m / s and a flight range of up to 5-6 km, depending on the control method. The engine is located in the middle part of the hull, and the tail compartment is given over to the control equipment and the laser radiation receiver.

The base rocket 9M123 is equipped with a tandem cumulative warhead weighing 8 kg. Penetration - at least 1100 mm of homogeneous armor behind dynamic protection. Product 9M123F carries a thermobaric warhead of the same mass. With the help of such missiles, Khrizantema-S can hit a variety of targets: tanks and other armored vehicles, fortified buildings, manpower and aircraft at low altitudes.

Combat potential

"Chrysanthemum-S" in its original and modernized form has high tactical and technical characteristics and is an effective tool for combating a wide range of targets on the battlefield. The effectiveness of the combat work of this ATGM is determined by several main factors and their successful combination.

Combat and command vehicles are built on a common chassis, and unification with one of the main types of armored vehicles of the ground forces is ensured. Due to this, all 9K123 tools have high mobility and are protected from bullets or small-caliber projectiles, and are also easy to operate and maintain.

Launch 9М123

The 9M123 missiles have fairly high flight characteristics and carry effective warheads. So, a missile with armor-piercing equipment is able to cope with dynamic protection and break through the frontal barrier of even a modern tank. An 8-kg thermobaric charge is comparable in its parameters to artillery shells of 152 mm caliber.

In terms of flight range, 9M123 products are inferior to newer domestic developments. However, even 5-6 km is enough to hit targets in the proposed theaters. In addition, even such a range allows you to stay outside the zones of destruction of tanks and other armored vehicles of the enemy.

Of particular importance is the OMS with two target channels. The presence of an optical and radar station simplifies the detection of targets, regardless of the presence of interference. Two missile control options also increase resistance to various interference. In addition, the complex gets the opportunity to simultaneously fire two missiles and direct them through different channels.

Opportunities Used

In the current Special Operation, crews get the opportunity to fully use and realize all the capabilities of their anti-tank systems. "Chrysanthemum-S" escort, cover and support other armored vehicles or infantry. At the same time, it is possible to regularly hit enemy targets and help the general processes of its demilitarization.

The events of recent months generally confirm the high potential of anti-tank missile systems of various kinds and their need for troops. At the same time, Khrizantema-S demonstrates the capabilities of such systems on self-propelled armored chassis. Such a demonstration is successful and contributes to the achievement of the goals of the Special Operation.

                In addition to binoculars, there are many other observation devices. In any case, something sticking out, and even with equipment on it, will be noticeable. This is not a telescopic antenna! And if it is 10-15 m high, this is definitely not a surf stick, but a rather solid structure (otherwise the first gust of wind will break it), which will definitely be noticeable. And it will not work to remove it quickly during the shelling. Rather, it will work, similar to a helmet on a bayonet to detect snipers))

      aiming at the object occurs optically?
      yeah, and also on mm-radar
      Another significant innovation, also designed to increase the effectiveness of the combat use of the Khrizantema-S anti-tank systems, was the introduction of a set of control automation equipment (KSAU) by anti-tank formations into the combat vehicle. Due to this, the updated BM 9P157 received modern means of communication, an integrated navigation and orientation system - inertial and satellite, as well as means for receiving target designations from the battery commander's vehicle, their automatic testing, displaying the tactical situation on an electronic map of the area and receiving combat orders and instructions. KSAU was developed by JSC "STC" Rubin "(Penza).
      So there is a KSAU, but nothing is said about pairing with a UAV - neither yes nor no.
      What tasks can she solve, even in the NWO?
      Designed to destroy tanks (including those equipped with dynamic protection), infantry fighting vehicles and other lightly armored targets, engineering and fortifications, surface targets, low-speed air targets, manpower (including in shelters and in open areas)

      And here you have a logical question. Javelin is not the fact that he sees. For a double-barreled gun and optical and radar guidance means are located above the body of the machine. Well, and if you really need to zankatsya, then Chrysanthemum can raise one shot to a height of 2,5 meters and also raise the radar.
      What are the tasks? The Chrysanthemum missile destroys any target in the military theater of the NWO. Only it is used targeted, since Cornet is enough for the eyes. Here the Polish tvards will arrive with new armor and the SLA, then the Chrysanthemums will start shooting. Against the Chrysanthemum missile, the DZ is useless.

          from practice. A weak civilian radar in fog and pitch snowstorm is a thing! With an optical visibility of 15-20m on the road, you can clearly see the oncoming lane and a hitch up to 1km on the screen.

          The military, I think, is a bit better;) And no one canceled fogs, snowstorms, dust and smoke screens in hostilities.

        Actually, because of such fanaticism, we will never leave diversity in the Armed Forces along the way. We will make infantry fighting vehicles instead of normal infantry fighting vehicles, we will produce 3-4-5 types of anti-tank systems, we will produce Buk M3 and S-350, Tor and Shell.

                Actually, recognition by Kyiv (renunciation of claims to) Crimea and Donbass is possible only as a result of the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. If you consider such a defeat possible, then, if not difficult, in what time frame?

                        No, Anastasia, I don't see the logic. If you claim that you are completely defeated and the defense is worthless, then why can’t the million-strong Russian army force Ukraine to peace and force it to sign peace on favorable terms for the Russian Federation? What prevents us from occupying Kyiv and beyond, up to Lvov? What prevents overthrowing the Kyiv regime, holding "elections", after which the new government will sign everything we need?
                        "The final victory is far away" - yes, really. We have been fighting for 5 months already, "far" is how many more months / years?)

                        There is not enough personnel - this is how one should have thought about it before starting the war. If you didn’t think before, then now you need to increase the number. Or is there no such possibility, and 250k is all that Russia is capable of today?

    Actually, initially Chrysanthemum had an ATGM radar guidance channel. This was the main difference and advantage of this complex - the possibility of firing in low visibility conditions. But now the radar antennas on the body, no, the Soviet galoshes are over, and effective managers have optimized the car by throwing out the radar as unnecessary.
