The use by the RF Armed Forces of missile decoys without a warhead led to the use of up to 80 percent of the ammunition for the IRIS-T air defense system by the Armed Forces of Ukraine

A series of operations to deliver strikes against the objects of the Kyiv regime with rocket weapons and drones made it possible for the Russian Armed Forces to obtain up-to-date data on the state of Ukraine's air defense system. Moreover, in some cases, the use of full-fledged missiles was not required to implement this kind of plan. In this regard, the usual “blanks”, “tricks” did their job - aviation ammunition without warhead.


The use of such technical means was also reported in the Russian defense department, noting that the enemy, misled, actively used his missiles against missile blanks, eventually giving the opportunity for full-fledged strike weapons to achieve their goals.
According to the latest information, during the recent missile attacks of the RF Armed Forces, Ukrainian air defense crews most actively spent their anti-aircraft guided missiles, including missiles of complexes delivered from Germany, in the Kyiv and Odessa regions. Russian decoy ammunition, imitating full-fledged missiles, made it possible to use up to 80 percent of the stocks of IRIS-T missiles supplied by the Armed Forces of Ukraine as an additional arsenal after the previous "zeroing". To use up in the sense that the Ukrainian military "with rapture" fired kits at the same "blanks", after which real (combat) missiles flew. Zelensky immediately sent a request to Germany for urgent deliveries of missiles to the mentioned air defense systems, which confirms the obvious problems with their (missiles) presence after the recent Russian air operation.

On the night of December 19, the air defense system in Kyiv, Kyiv and Nikolaev regions showed that there were critical difficulties in terms of intercepting Russian Geran-2 drones. The UAVs hit the thermal power plants of the Ukrainian capital, the work of which was barely restored after previous attacks, and which, as the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine had previously stated, "will be protected in a special way from air strikes." The result is a breakthrough of the air defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the north and south of Ukraine with the simultaneous defeat of several key energy infrastructure facilities and the air defense positions themselves (identified during previous strikes). Against this background, Ukrainian officials can say as much as they like that 69 out of 70 missiles were shot down and that the Russian Armed Forces are about to run out of missiles...

        Self-soothing for whom? The Ukrainians themselves say that the critical state of their air defense, that the critical state of their energy, which resulted in the problems of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with logistics near Bakhmut.
        .now, in order to detect low-flying cruise missiles and kamikaze drones, Ukro-anti-aircraft gunners anyway have to turn on the radar, which allows us to successfully utilize them with parallel-flying anti-radar missiles. The fact that combined strikes both on infrastructure facilities and on its air defense in the best way affect the reduction of the defense capability of the ukrovermacht, said Andrey Kovalchuk, commander of the OK "South" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Pan Gauleiter of Russian Odessa. He complained that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are again experiencing an acute shortage of shells for artillery. Due to the lack of electricity, Ukrzaliznytsia ran out of schedule, which does not allow the logistics department to fully provide ammunition for the defenders of independence. one of the reasons for the “Bakhmut meat grinder”. But the situation in general can become critical if there is a total blackout. Then the real shell famine will come.


        In the meantime, the operation of nuclear power plants allows us to maneuver capacities in favor of the independent army - naturally, to the detriment of the hulks. “The margin of safety of critical infrastructure is at the limit, power engineers do not have time to repair substations, which is why they declared an emergency situation in the energy system of Ukraine,” wrote a telegram channel popular in Nenko, citing an insider from Ukrenergo. In short, everyone in Square is preparing for the Russian strike on substations of nuclear power plants, which, according to the British MI-6, will happen before the start of the new year. There is no doubt that almost all air defense air defense systems are pulled up to the distributors, which will have to turn on their radars in order to fend off the consequences of the arrival.

        An anti-aircraft missile strikes with fragments during the explosion, which can undermine warheads. Fragments can destroy a blank as much as they like, but after fragmentation hits it will continue its flight. For this, it is possible to purchase SCADs with an expired shelf life from Iran (our diplomats seem unable to agree with the DPRK and the PRC) and use them against large targets such as oil refineries or chemical plants, provoking the Armed Forces of Ukraine to spend air defense systems. However, if Russia is not able to put more drones and precision-guided munitions in its troops than NATO in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then Putin is unlikely to win without the use of nuclear weapons.

            If all the fuel burned out, then until the fragments tore the hull to shreds, it will continue to fly, changing direction and speed according to the law of conservation of momentum and energy in accordance with the mass, direction and speed of the fragments and the pierced hull. Although, of course, a rocket with a blank instead of a charge is a solution from hopelessness. it makes sense for her to shoot if the enemy’s anti-aircraft weapons hit your missiles with a probability of more than 50% and it is in depth and has the ability to destroy with the installations of the last echelons what the advanced ones missed ..

            This is not true. According to TU, the combat charging compartment must withstand lumbago. It explodes only when the initiating explosive fuse is detonated. Therefore, there is difficulty in shooting down the Point, for example. Well, the SAM hit, well, it pierced with fragments. So what? Never mind! She flies like a boulder weighing over a ton. What will shrapnel do to her? holes? It flies by inertia to the designated point as a massive object. May slightly change the trajectory, but if the detonation chains are intact, the Point will work. Unfortunately.
            Don't believe? Imagine you "knock down" a KamAZ loaded with gravel with an ordinary Oka. What will happen? Right. Announcement on Avito: "KamAZ for sale, front left wheel dirty" laughing

                This is understandable, a capricious thing - the mode of burning checkers. Even a crack, and that is a problem. But the burning of these checkers occurs at the starting ascending stage. Therefore, I drew attention to the difficulties in shooting down ballistic targets-Points, for example. And she, with burned-out drafts, does not care about breaking through the engine. He doesn't work. And if, as I noted, the detonation chains are not damaged, then the Point will still explode and deal damage. Even if she got knocked down. The same applies to Scuds, which many commentators have paid attention to.

                Yes, what is available is simpler, then they are used. And thank God that there is something to use. And it is quite clear that ballistic missiles of the "Tochka" or "Scud" type are of little use for this. Because if they shoot at an object with cruise missiles, then false targets should imitate them.

        The fact of the matter is that a long-range missile with a warhead, without it, costs almost the same. Explosives are not that expensive. Tse is not a nuclear bomb.
        It is possible to tear the iron dome of the promised from Palestine with hailstones, everything is nearby.
        But launching a rocket at 200-400 km, or even 800, from the Caspian, for example, is completely different.
        A cruise missile is a complex product and expensive, shots from the fields of the Volgograd region roughly show how complex this contraption is. How many wires does it have.
        But the boys here were told to throw their hats up, celebrate, and they celebrate.
        We have already shot down Ukrainian planes, we are counting in the third round. And they keep flying. Even helicopters launch missiles in our direction without any problems and calmly fly back to themselves.

          Any control system is needed, otherwise it will not fly far, another question - perhaps simplified to the limit. But in any case, it must be a specially designed and produced ammunition - a "trick". Starting regular ones without warheads is a big stupidity, in my opinion.
          And there are some doubts that such ammunition was produced earlier and in sufficient quantities.

          I don't think so. Firstly, without electronics at all, after launch, the rocket will begin to tumble or fly in the wrong direction at all. Those. at least it should have an inertial guidance system (three accelerometers + three magnetometers + controller). If we add to it the GLONASS guidance system (a penny microcircuit + an antenna made in the form of tracks on a printed circuit board), we get a completely normal guidance system capable of hitting stationary targets with high accuracy. It remains to add TNT (for non-brothers, such goodness is not a pity) and a fuse - it turns out a completely full-fledged shock missile. The main cost will be TRD. Optical seeker and electronics with video signal transmission over long distances can be expensive elements - but their use is not necessary in cheap products, for example, they are not in Shaheda and Gerani, and they have piston engines.
          Therefore, I think that the statements about missiles used as decoys are some kind of bullshit or disinformation. Maybe they launch training targets or launch vehicles for nuclear warheads (without warheads), but somehow I don’t see much point in this. It makes no sense to launch aerodynamic decoys, here ballistic missiles are used together with decoys, where the launch vehicle immediately pulls into orbit, along with multiple warheads, several decoys, which are much lighter, but have an equal RCS.

            Most likely, very ancient Soviet missiles were used as tricks. With an accuracy of plus / minus a couple of kilometers. When equipping such a missile with a nuclear part, the accuracy is acceptable. With conventional explosives, such a missile is practically useless.
            So by using these missiles as decoys, we get the following benefits:
            We are forcing Ukrainian air defense to spend expensive missiles.
            Making it easier for real rockets to break through.
            We save on the disposal of ancient rocket junk.
            And we don’t supply decoys with a warhead, because due to disgusting accuracy and general decrepitude, this rocket can fall anywhere. Including the peacekeepers. And we avoid it.

          I read that the Hymers were launched together with Tochki-u during the shelling of the Antonovsky Bridge in order to overload the air defense system. I think that it is problematic to confuse Grad and Hymers missiles, an experienced operator or guidance officer will immediately see the differences, and their range is very different. And it’s hard to call the Point a false target, if it hits, it won’t seem enough!

        I don’t understand either: explosives in a rocket are perhaps the most inexpensive thing there is. Without a warhead, it’s still a rocket with all its systems, and not a blank. I don’t see where our Ukrainians were cheated.

          Logically, inexpensive means should be used as "tricks". It is clear that in such "tricks" there are some control systems.
          And the logic is that the enemy spends an expensive air defense missile on a "trick", and not shoot down a combat missile + overload the enemy's air defense systems.
          It is quite possible that UMTK 9F6021 "Adjutant" was used as a "decoy".

        The difference is BIG, at times. In addition to the warhead, there is actually no electronic warfare, no guidance and communication systems, (figuratively speaking) no expensive "electronics" - on-board control equipment. And less fuel is needed (because the weight of the "blank" is much less than the "original"). For her, the main thing is not accuracy, but to fly "to that steppe" :) And to destroy such a "blank", horses spend 2 missiles, each costing hundreds of thousands of dollars ...

          In this blank, only the seeker and explosives with a fuse are missing. This is less than 1/3 of the cost of the entire rocket. Money down the drain. It is more efficient to launch a full-fledged missile, with built-in missile defense bypass maneuvers. Even if one of the 3 FULL missiles breaks through, and the probability of this is not small, the effect will be incomparably higher. In addition to depleting the enemy's air defense, there will also be destruction of the target.

        Well, let's figure it out together...
        In any case, the rocket blank will contain:
        1. Engine (one of the most expensive units.)
        2. Tank and power system, for cruise missiles only. For ballistic missiles with solid propellant rocket engines, a fuel cartridge, which is also not very cheap.
        3. Control system, i.e. autopilot.
        4. The whole body, with all fairings, tanks, planes and control actuators.
        Will not be installed on a blank:
        1. Homing head. Not a cheap system, but not more expensive than an engine.
        2. Warhead - i.e. the explosive itself and the fuse.
        Now estimate the estimate... It is obvious that more than half of the systems and components are present in the disc. In terms of cost, I think at least 2/3 of the cost of a full-fledged rocket.
        It also seems to me that the term itself, a blank rocket, is pure idiocy.

          Everything is much easier -
          the target missile is simply more resistant to damage from detonation of missiles, since there is no significant weight of explosives, which makes it conditionally stronger. the probability of its destruction is much lower than the standard one and requires more missiles

        The warhead gives the main weight to the rocket.
        That is, for a long distance you will need both fuel and a powerful engine.
        So it already turns out a full-fledged expensive rocket.
        Without warheads, this is a light blank in which, according to the idea, the engine can be abandoned and it will fly by inertia, having received speed from the aircraft.

        There are no blanks without a warhead in nature. The finished product is assembled at the factory and disassembly is strictly prohibited and not provided. If there is a warhead in a cruise missile, no one will take it out.
        Modern CD is a high-tech product. This applies to all its parts, including fasteners. Everything is calculated, weighed and densely packed, ready to use.
        There are special target missiles. They imitate military products, do not have warheads. These are educational items. These can be accessed and programmed by trained personnel. Probably these were loaded with enemy air defense.
        The phrase "blanks without warheads" is most likely a gag of representatives of the mass media. No one will allow anyone to remake military products. Not only are they not cheap, but the work will cost hellish money.

        Most likely, very ancient Soviet missiles were used as tricks. With an accuracy of plus / minus a couple of kilometers. When equipping such a missile with a nuclear part, the accuracy is acceptable. With conventional explosives, such a missile is practically useless.
        So by using these missiles as decoys, we get the following benefits:
        We are forcing Ukrainian air defense to spend expensive missiles.
        Making it easier for real rockets to break through.
        We save on the disposal of ancient rocket junk.
        And we don’t supply decoys with a warhead, because due to disgusting accuracy and general decrepitude, this rocket can fall anywhere. Including the peacekeepers. And we avoid it.

        20-30 percent of the cost. Housing - engine - fuel.
        True, here the air defense specialist suggested that there could be anti-radar, long-range missiles
        That is, the ability of missiles to detect radar radiation and bypass this area has been turned into the ability to turn on the radiation source to hit. this station. Data on frequencies are stitched into the brains or are set by reprogramming. Thus, missiles can go sequentially: a target, a missile with additional guidance on the radar, and then the main one. If no radiation is detected, the missile with additional guidance goes to the specified initial coordinates.
        It is difficult to say something about target missiles. There are targets that are more expensive than conventional missiles or comparable in cost. But you are right, most likely old stocks.

In Kyiv, rockets of this installation flew into residential buildings. Residents from apartments destroyed by rockets showed photos of the wreckage of these rockets. And there was also a video, the Ukrainians themselves posted, where 4 missiles were fired into the sky with their self-destruction without the presence of any targets there.

      The cost of a non-nuclear warhead is cheap. Really well worth the engine and guidance system. So a false target may not be cheap at all. By the way, an experienced radar operator can tell a lot about a flying object by the mark on the screen, and he can easily distinguish the KR from Geranium. But the “smart” decoy, on which the warhead is replaced by a jammer, or some other tricky contraption, is a very useful and dangerous thing.
      "pipe without guidance" is NURS without warheads.

      I think that there are at least fundamental differences.
      Such a dummy missile can be converted into a high-explosive one and hit a real target with it.
      Once there is an engine, body and everything else.

          In order for it to be high-explosive and hit right on target, a different guidance system is needed. Since the X-55 is not very accurate. As long as I remember. And the new warhead + new guidance system is a new missile. So, the option of using it as a means of deceiving air defense is a completely economic approach.

      I am not an expert, but in my understanding, a "blank" is a conditional penny "NURS from Grad", which, due to the lack of a warhead, has a "simulation part" that allows it to increase its EPR and shine on radars like "Caliber" or something more expensive.
      By the way, it becomes possible to fire at objects protected by air defense and hitting which missiles with a normal warhead is fraught ... For example, residential areas of cities ...
      Only then does it make sense...
      If this is not so, then there is no point in removing warheads.

    The nuclear version of the X-55 has guidance with an accuracy of 50-100 meters, which is quite enough for a nuclear warhead. But in order to use it with a high-explosive warhead, it is necessary to refine the guidance systems like on the X-555 with an accuracy of 15-20 meters.

    The use of "false targets"? It is high time ! But is it worth talking about "blanks without explosives"!? "One of the main" is the desirable cheapness of decoys! That is why false targets can be launched, for example, on the basis of "Geran-2"; but using only a glider, a "motor" and an INS as a guidance system ... that is, without satellite guidance, without seeker! (To make it cheaper!) Of course, without warheads (because the accuracy with a more simplified, cheap guidance system will be lower; it is undesirable to hit "on the population" ...); but it is possible with a container with chaff (heat traps), which should be thrown out at the signal of a radar sensor ... In general ... on the basis of Geranium-2, several modifications of various functional purposes can be made! So you get a multifunctional swarm!

    Here is a drone with Ali for $ 9000 with which Ukraine hit the Novoshakhtinsk refinery in the summer.
    One of the columns of the plant stood up for more than a month, the damage that this device caused was head and shoulders above its cost.
    And such drones are available to anyone.
    And in the hands of dedicated people who are friends with GPS and electronics, such a device can turn into a very serious weapon in terms of efficiency comparable to million-dollar European aviation cruise missiles.
    Such a device can fly 250-300 km and deliver a dozen kilograms of explosives to the most sensitive objects.

    Ukraine is already setting up production of similar drones with a range of 1000 km.

    And we continue to spend missiles worth a million dollars each and burn through the resource of strategic aviation.
    I don’t believe that it was impossible in Russia to organize the mass production of such devices, including for opening and distracting air defense.

    What about the meaning? The warhead is not the most expensive part of the rocket. Its absence saves no more than 10% of the cost of the product. The main price of a high-precision missile is the electronic filling and the engine, which will be used up anyway. If the disc is knocked down, then a small saving is obtained. But if the blank still gets to the target, then the money will be spent in vain.

          In the middle section of the flight to the target, telecontrol of the 1st type is used according to the on-load tap-changer data. In the vicinity of the target, a transition to command guidance of the 2nd type is carried out - according to the data of the RPN and BR SAM. At the final stage - telecontrol of the 2nd type only according to the data of the BR SAM. The on-load tap-changer accompanies the target discretely constantly, and highlights only with TU-2.

          Regardless of the presence of a seeker on board the SAM, the radar of any SAM accompanies the target and transmits correction commands to the SAM. The transition to homing is carried out when the accuracy of the data from the seeker begins to exceed the accuracy of the data from the radar, or 2-5 seconds before the meeting with the goal to increase noise immunity.

    Shooting "blanks" of missiles is not cheap. The most expensive part of the rocket is the guidance head, gyroscopes, and electronics. This is at least 50%. Next is the engine. Next is the body. And the cheapest one is a warhead, it's just explosives and that's it. So firing a rocket - a blank is about the same as using self-propelled guns for mine clearance. Another propaganda, apparently, a lot of missiles were shot down, so something needs to be covered. But they covered it not smartly and clumsily. No blanks flew, but simply many missiles were shot down.

It’s just that these blanks were produced for special products that are stored in warehouses ... And God forbid that they don’t get them out of there

    What kind of war is this? We explain each tactical trick to the enemy. This seems to be a new word in military cunning)

    How much do the pigs cost? What are pigs? Is it like a caliber or x100 is there somehow without a warhead? I think 400 kg of the warhead is worth nothing in comparison with the engine, control system, blank body. That is, they fired blank rockets that cost almost as much as with a warhead?

      "Pigs" are missiles that imitate combat missiles or aircraft. They are designed to divert air defense systems from combat missiles or aircraft. Logically, their cost should be less than the cost of combat missiles or aircraft.
      It is quite possible that UMTK 9F6021 "Adjutant" was used as a "decoy".

    The "dear experts" who criticized the use of missile "dummy" without a warhead, but it didn't occur to you that target missiles could well have been used as "dummy" instead of combat missiles with the warhead removed. Such as the air target "Tribute" M or air target E95M. Before you write your comments, think with your head, not f***!

    In the last war with the Armenians, the Azerbaijanis knocked out their air defense using the An-2 in an unmanned version as decoys. They launched an airplane, the radars immediately turned on and they were already hit with missiles. We probably also have a lot of all sorts of flying trash suitable for a similar application.

    They will also bring them missiles and everything else, replenish supplies, etc.
    It is necessary to "reset" not the stocks of missiles, but radars and launchers.
    And in general, it is necessary to "zero" the "help" itself and the supply routes

    What does it mean - "what's the point of counting something"? This is called situational analysis. And without an analysis of the situation today, fleas are not removed from dogs.

    You have to count correctly! That is, having all the information, and not making calculations on PR actions of various structures. All these calculations and reports of the authorities have nothing to do with reality ...
    And both with us and with them. Every official, including the military, covers his ass with chatter. As they once said about Lifenews, they come up with 30% of the missing news themselves)))
