Military Review

An attempt by a Ukrainian tank to get away from the 152-mm Krasnopol guided missile was unsuccessful

68

The Russian military, as part of a special military operation in Ukraine, is actively using precision-guided munitions of various types to destroy enemy armored vehicles, including Krasnopol, which has already confirmed its high performance.


Russian gunners quite often use Krasnopol within the framework of the NMD, inflicting pinpoint strikes on enemy positions or armored vehicles. Guidance of shells on the target is carried out by a drone. Equipped with a semi-active laser guidance system, a guided munition is guaranteed to destroy targets.

A video of the use of the Krasnopol projectile in Ukrainian appeared on the Web tank. The shooting was carried out from a drone, which also acted as a spotter. As you can see in the footage, the tank is trying to change position, i.e. is in motion, the UAV continues to keep it in the crosshairs of the sight, thereby giving target designation to the projectile. Further, the arrival of the ammunition and the defeat of the target. An attempt to get away from defeat was not crowned with success.

The description of the video says that this happened south of the village of Pervomayskoye, not far from Pesok, where units of the allied forces are now cleaning up.

"Krasnopol" 2K25 - corrected high-explosive fragmentation projectile caliber 152 and 155 mm. The ammunition is equipped with a jet engine and a homing head. It is in service with the Russian army in the 152 mm 3OF39M (Krasnopol-M) and 155 mm K155M versions. Range of destruction of the target - from 25 to 40 km, depending on the version of the projectile.

    In the latest videos of the destruction of armored vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by artillery, the concern for the future grain harvest is striking. The funnels have become smaller, if not completely absent. This is about new products. (Military Thought magazine).

        And how did the tank know that it was at gunpoint?
        Perhaps it was the second projectile - in the first seconds, a cloud of dust / smoke from the explosion of the first projectile is noticeable. That's why it started to wobble like that.

      I am sure that not only at the landfills. The 2nd is a good GUIDED projectile, but has a couple of significant drawbacks. It's sad when articles are written by people who are far from the topic. Either the author has a controlled one, or an adjustable one .... He has a UAV in the role of a spotter, and not a target designator ... Well, with a range it’s generally a masterpiece ....

        Make a conclusion yourself.

        To use the Krasnopol two-block Soviet guided projectile, you need to know exactly the coordinates of the target so that the projectile immediately flies almost to the target, and manually enter the preliminary settings into the projectile, screw both parts of the projectile together and load the gun. After the shot, a countdown is given for the inclusion of a laser designator, which is located on the ground at a distance of a maximum of 5 km from the target in line of sight as part of a calculation of three people. The total weight of the Malachite complex for projectile guidance is more than 40 kg and includes a laser rangefinder and target designator, a command device for entering the coordinates of the target coordinates and receiving a signal about the projectile firing, a radio station for transmitting information and commands to the 4th calculation number at the gun ... This is a rather lengthy procedure, and if the soldiers see the target, it is easier to quickly use ATGMs ...
        Such an application algorithm is not suitable for UAVs. The UAV on the video does not determine the coordinates and is most likely a quadrocopter just to observe and fix the destruction. Its payload does not allow placement of a laser designator for illumination. New projectiles with the possibility of illumination from UAVs have not been adopted for service. Helicopter-type UAVs with a laser target designator were not accepted for service. Although they were tested, and new shells were even sold to India and China with the Malachite complex or its analogues (there are also French ones), without being adopted by their units ...
        By the way, the laser rangefinder-designator at Bayraktar weighs about 50kg and has a range of only about 4 km. It is designed to illuminate its own missiles and external ones, and occupies 1/3 of the payload of 150 kg. Only 100 kg remains for rockets ...

          Hello. Much has been written. A couple of questions. 1. Why does the rangefinder-target designator (1d14,15,22) need three people? Can the three of us press a button in a timely manner? .... This is the answer to your "command and execution blocks". They are not MANDATORY... Knowing the flight time, you can turn on the "backlight". Next question. Why do three "morons" carry 50kg on themselves, when it's perfectly busy on the CMU? ... I don't understand, 10 seconds is a long time? It is necessary to introduce two "things" into the projectile. Ballistic option and tube installation. Or am I wrong?! Well, at the end. There is "illumination" from the UAV, and it works very well. If NOT IN THE TOPIC, THEN DO NOT WRITE ... You have superficial knowledge. All the best and victory!!!!

          You are behind the times. The coordinates (of the target area) are transmitted by the drone. It also provides continuous illumination of the target. The tank squirmed over the fact that it identified the laser illumination. Such sensors are on the Polish versions of the T-72. And devices that provide such illumination are on our UAVs from Syria, where they were tested. And they are already successfully used on helicopters. Not long ago I read an article that the same system as for illumination for aviation ATGMs is also successfully used for illumination for Krasnoapol.

          Apparently they read about the 3OF39 coordination and guidance system in a popular science magazine? The 2K25 system includes a projectile, a rangefinder-target designator and a system for matching the shot and starting the target illumination. The preparation of the SLA is carried out according to the general rules, taking into account the requirements for the use of BP!

        2 art brigades 4 divisions of 25 self-propelled guns = 100 self-propelled guns throw 4 Excaliburs per minute,
        shelling 10 minutes = $4000 x $65 = $000 million
        10 attacks per day 40 x $000 = $65 billion per day
        10 days x 40 shells = $000 billion
        30 days = $78 billion
        CBO is already underway for 5 months = $390 billion
        in principle, the US budget will be enough for another 5 months of shelling,
        just $800 billion out of $700 billion
        just need AUG to hand over everything for scrap
        we calculated this at $65000 and not at $230
        230 thousand x 40 shells = 000 billion per day
        30 days = $300 billion = 2 months $600 billion
        CBO has been going on for 5 months now

            but in practice the United States does not have 12 million guided missiles
            aid for the Armed Forces of Ukraine was limited to 12 Himars launchers and no more than 1 thousand missiles - funny

          Fuck you think!!! The brigade supports the actions of the division, i.e. the front for hitting targets = 20km (USA). Up to 200 tanks and 400 infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers can attack on this front (in a full-fledged war), but when firing Excalibur-type VTBs, it must be borne in mind that use is possible with proper illumination and a firing range of 3 to 6 km (there is no further illumination). These 3 km targets will pass in 10 minutes. There are 24 guns in the NATO division, but 8 illumination channels, i.e. only one battery can shoot VTB. In one minute, only 24 shells can be aimed, and then with the impeccable work of reconnaissance and gun crews, and taking into account that the crews do not get tired. For 10 minutes - 240 shells (one division), 960 shells by ABR forces. This is a theory, in practice only the first 2-3 tanks are visible in a column and during deployment, i.e. nowhere to shoot... and spend millions. With modern database management, you still need to find the goal for which it is worth launching VTB

        Disagree. Here it is appropriate to recall that the Russian military budget is about 70 billion. That is, 10 times less. As a result, we have a conditional expenditure on average $ 100 with a budget of 000 billion and $ 700 with a budget of 100 billion. Will you make up the proportion?

      If the illumination is laser and there are sensors on the roof (most tanks SHOULD have them), then it's no wonder they found out. And running away from guidance from a drone is stupidity. As far as I know, when a backlight is detected, the crew is advised to leave the tank and as soon as possible.

      After all, the tank could change position trying to get away from shelling in general, and not from a particular projectile. Well, then there are journalistic embellishments. It’s good that they didn’t write that the shell chased the tank across the field for half an hour. laughing

    Unfortunately, the consequences are not shown - the video ends in the most interesting place. There is no black smoke from the fire of the MTO, the explosion of ammunition, too, only smoke from the explosion of the projectile. But it seems that there was a direct hit from the tank - no ejection of soil from hitting the ground is visible.

      I had to read how in the 90s the Americans decided to test our high-explosive projectile of 152 mm caliber on a decommissioned tank, and so, the projectile seemed to lie next to the tank, but 2 rollers fell off and it seemed that the other one was deformed ...
      Here, even if the tank is not destroyed, then there is a high probability that it is immobilized, that is, it is still disabled.

      Are you still unaware of laser warning systems? Then you are 50 years behind life that way. And "Krasnopol" goes to the laser "bunny".

    I do not believe. And because I don't see it. The tank saw, but the hit did not.

    But such a question is off topic for those involved: has military thought changed in connection with the experience of the NWO? Or does everything happen within the framework of Gerasimov's concept?

      Concept - a way of representing any phenomena, processes, the main point of view.

      Proceeding from this, military thought is changing with already known actions.

      There is a proverb - "every general is preparing for the last war"
      .. :)
      - 1953, Korea - New tactics in air combat of jet aircraft.
      1974, Vietnam - the advantage of helicopters and helicopter landing.
      -2021, Karabakh - UAV efficiency and fashion for them.
      - 2022, SVO-howitzers and TKR, as efficiency in actions.

        Isn't it time for us to take a swing at our William, Shakespeare? I mean, are there enough grounds to change the combat regulations of the Armed Forces?

      The UAV was not Ukrainian - they could well shoot at their own, as recently they covered their own from howitzers.

    this is really impressive .. This is not wasted firing from the MLRS over the area. We would have more of such red-fields, lancets and shock UAVs.

    Then the Ukrainians will write that they themselves blew up the tank so that a drone would not take it prisoner. And what - easily. He could throw a lasso on him and take him prisoner. I would stand among the horses naked and barefoot.

      Just let the tank shoot, crush our equipment, and we will save shells, the redfield is an ancient shell, it costs 2 million for import, the price for our troops is a multiple of less, plus there are a lot of old shells that need to be disposed of, and they don’t count money in war, for example the sniper fired, approximately in his direction there is immediately suppression of artillery, it seems that the costs are incommensurable, one person with one penny bullet, but he will slap the commander and imagine what the consequences will be.
