Loitering ammunition "Lancet" increased the effectiveness of Russian troops on the front line

Loitering ammunition "Lancet" increased the effectiveness of Russian troops on the front line

Russian troops began to act more effectively after the active use of the Lancet loitering ammunition at the front.

This, in particular, is confirmed by the military commander Alexander Sladkov in his Telegram channel, and other sources.

The official name of ZALA's loitering ammunition "Lancet" is "Product-51" and "Product-52". The basic version of the UAV with a warhead of 3 kilograms and two X-shaped wings is known as the “Izdeliye-52”, and the reinforced drone with a warhead of 5 kg and one X-shaped wing is known as the “Izdeliye-51”. The name "Lancet" was used to designate the project and now, strictly speaking, it is not relevant, but it has become entrenched in the media space.

With the help of loitering ammunition, the Russian army, for example, successfully hit American-made self-propelled artillery mounts in the Nikolaev-Krivoy Rog direction.

However, military commander Sladkov asks another question - will the Russian army have Anti-Lancets, that is, loitering reusable unmanned fighters that could protect Russian positions from enemy drone attacks? For example, unmanned kamikaze fighters could be made.

It is possible that following the results of a special military operation in Ukraine, the Russian military industry will draw appropriate conclusions, and the production of new unmanned aerial vehicles will appear. It is clear that certain changes will also be required in the tactics of conducting combat operations of the ground forces and aviation, taking into account all the nuances of modern warfare - and this is the use of unmanned vehicles, and satellite communications, and other technical means.

        And both are better! And there are more "Lancets" and who controls the specialists!

          This is understandable, we need an effective kit.
          By all appearances, things have gone well.
          The next stage is the preparation of an effective countermeasure against such a threat from the enemy!

      Has anyone noticed in the video where the lancet dodged a hit on the locator? Exposure to radio waves or what was it?

        Apparently he didn't dodge, but tried to retarget.
        Initially, the operator led the lancet to a rotating antenna, but in the last seconds he decided to hit the aggregate, but it came out blurry.

    . So everything is right ... everything needs skill, hardening, TRAINING!

    This is good, but we also need long-range strategic UAVs, especially strike and especially strike medium-range
    The lancets would be very well suited for deep reconnaissance in Western Ukraine, after all, Kovpak's experience must be remembered

      We already have strategic long-range UAVs - Topol, YARS, Satan, Mace ....
      But there is just a long-range UAV - Iskander, Caliber, Garan-2 ...

        We need at least an analogue of the RQ-4 Global Hawk, which hangs around Sochi for days and listens to everything ...

    So has it been put into service? Or, as usual, two-page requirements and does not meet the needs of the Ministry of Defense?

      All loitering ammunition does not comply with WTO technical regulations.

    With the camouflage part, the Lancet is gorgeous. The twin reconnaissance drone - the shock Lancet works perfectly.

      Recently, I just remember - a hit on a pickup truck, a hit on a boat, a hit on the M777, here is a paladin and two more videos were in one post, they shoot beautifully, first the Lancet goes to the target and the image disappears, then the full video from the reconnaissance drone

    A good tool for solving tactical problems, but then there should be a lot of them. The enemy is also awake: we must prepare for an anti-drone war.

    Maybe there will be a new kind of technology. Something like the Uragan MLRS, but instead of shells, a kamikaze UAV to launch a swarm. The reconnaissance UAV marks the points, the MLRS swarm is launched. And if you add electronic vision and teach self-correction on approach to moving targets, there will be a hell of a machine.

      A tornado has such shells from an UAV, and for a long time already. True, they are not in the troops, as well as Zoos / Drills, etc., etc., otherwise the WTO, which is, is present in homeopathic quantities

    It would be necessary to launch a pair into the locator. So that everything is fucked up ... chit.

    And no one noticed that the photo of the Lancet at the beginning of the article and the video of the object hitting the radar station are not the same thing? And will it not turn out to be another Iranian miracle in the sphere of the Russian military-industrial complex?

    Now we will have to think about how we will fight against their drones, we have electronic warfare equipment, optoelectronic stations, bring Shilka from warehouses, etc., maybe it's time to start working already sad
