Showing footage of the destruction of the American AN / TPQ counter-battery radar by the Krasnopol guided projectile in the NVO zone

The Russian high-precision projectile 3OF39 "Krasnopol" proved its combat effectiveness even in the Syrian operation. Today, this ammunition is used by the RF Armed Forces during the NWO in Ukraine. Meanwhile, despite the abundance of information from the fronts, shots of the use of the aforementioned ammunition are not so common.

One of these videos was published by the TG channel Song "P". The impressive result of the use of 3OF39 "Krasnopol" was captured thanks to the gunners of the Southern Military District of Russia.

On the frames you can see the stage of preparing the ammunition for use. As the Russian military explained, it consists of two parts - hardware (for precise guidance) and direct combat. The gunners demonstrated the assembly of the projectile in the course of the report.

According to the artillery commander, Krasnopol is used to destroy armored vehicles, headquarters and other targets that are hard to reach for conventional artillery shells.

At the same time, as the military explained, for the successful use of precision-guided munitions, the coordinated work of artillerymen and scouts, who “highlight” the target and carry out direct aiming, is extremely important.

The published footage shows how a Krasnopol projectile fired from an Msta-B howitzer is used to destroy an American AN/TPQ counter-battery radar in the Avdiivka area. The latter was located on a high-rise building. As the Russian serviceman said, the target could not be "reached" by conventional artillery before.

    Most of all "killed" DAK ... "great pleasure" to move this colossus along the front edge. But there are already lighter and more compact laser illumination devices.

    As the saying goes: "FEEL THE DIFFERENCE"

      This technique comes from the 70s .. What do we want? There is not only illumination, but also synchronization and more. Well done artillerymen and scouts

        As far as I know, the target designation system for Krasnopol was developed by the French in 2001.
        The shells were developed at the Tula Instrument Design Bureau. A 152-mm UAS 3OF39 projectile with semi-active laser homing on a target was created there, equipped with devices that counteract the loads on the on-board equipment when fired. On the basis of UAS 3OF39 in the 90s, the 2K25 Krasnopol complex was developed.
        Subsequently, modifications of the projectile for the 155-mm guns KM-1 "Krasnopol-155" and KM-2 "Krasnopol-M" were developed in the Tula KBPM. For Krasnopol-M, the French company CILAS developed the DHY 307 laser target designation system.
        In 1997, China acquired a license for the production of Krasnopol-M. By 2000, their mass production was mastered and the first batch was made.
        France also purchased and tested these shells at home. I think after the experience of using trophy redfields captured in warehouses after the retreat of the RF Armed Forces, they also thought about setting up the production of these shells.
        There is a video on the web. how at the training ground sharovarniks are trained in the use of trophy red-fields and there are shots where they evaluate the quality of work with these shells. Apparently they didn't get enough.
        In addition, there have already been articles on this topic.

          The development of the projectile and target designation has been carried out since the late 70s. I already knew about this projectile in the late 80s. About the French system that you mentioned .. This applies to export performance. And yes, it was promoted in the 2000s. When "partners, peace, friendship-chewing gum." All this is in the past.

      With all due respect, compare the range of these devices. 6km vs 2km.
      Look at the video - the house with digital zoom is barely visible. The difference in focusing the beam at 2 km and at 6 km with a floor height of 3 m:

      0°5'9" против 0°1'43"
      This is a huge difference in both optics and positioning accuracy. Anyone who has shot at 100m and at least 500m knows how difficult it is to keep even a chest target at that distance. And this is 0°6'.

        Let me contribute to the discussion - here is an intermediate solution

        LDM-2 - works for 4 kilometers with an error of no more than 3,5 m. Today it is a CIVIL device, as it works in ten-second cycles automatically switching to power saving mode. But this mode can be turned off and the device becomes an artillery rangefinder-target designator. The mass of the device with a battery is 900 grams, it is mass-produced by the Novosibirsk Instrument-Making Plant, which for some reason is now called Shvabe.

          I have a telescope from the refinery, TAL125R. There are no complaints about optics, but here is the electronic part and so on like from the 70s. 12V power supply the size of half a carton of milk.
          As for the use for illumination - it all depends on the diameter of the spot at a given range. It seems to be the most important thing. If there is a spot the size of a house, the rangefinder will not interfere, and the projectile will fly "somewhere there."
          But I'm talking from the couch.

        When a commercial satellite is focused from a height of 300 km with a resolution of less than a meter, it really makes a huge difference. And for 6 km, and even with a laser .. the optics of the century before last is enough

      Well, yes, one works at 6000 meters maximum, and the second at 2000 meters.

    They work well, now they would increase the number on all fronts and directions, because there are a lot of targets for such shells.

      the lancet is too weak for this and there will be almost no destruction.

        At home? Yes, there will be almost no destruction. And the radiating elements of the Lancet's active warhead array behind the eyes.

    Ay well done!!! One projectile - one target! It would always be like this, otherwise you look at satellite images and in some places it is not clear whether this is still the Earth or already the Moon. And just like that - just great! Well done!

    And there is also an adjustable 240 mm Smelchak mine for Tulip. This is generally a kabzdets to everything. Why is it not used?

    Krasknopol is terribly expensive. Interestingly, but MLRS like Himars could not be used? With the same precision. Hurricane seems to have the same capabilities. Or is it more expensive winked

      Terribly expensive as in any business with a small production. With mass, it gets cheaper anyway.

      You always have to overpay for accuracy, a blank is one thing, but with stuffing, software, is completely different.

    The Americans probably last used this in Iraq in the 90s of the last century. Now it is relevant with gps guidance of shells, but for our electronics this is far space. Or make the backlight very light so that you can install it on the quadrocopter, and not this bandura ((

      Even gps guidance has worse accuracy ... Optical gyroscopes are on the himarse and still the deviation is several meters.

        Guidance on satellite navigation does not depend on weather conditions and interference. Laser guidance allows you to hit moving targets. American practice has shown that GPS projectiles for stationary targets and drones with guided missiles are more optimal. We are still at the previous stage.

    "Steamboats are good ... but deer are better!" "Krasnopol" is good, but expensive! In "nature" there is an adjustable projectile "Centimeter-M"! It was developed ... then they hesitated: is it needed? ... In the first half of the tenth years of this century, "centimeter" interest arose again ... but, in the end, it died out too! But the RCIC technology was conceived as the "most profitable" alternative to "traditional" guided munitions! I am also surprised by the "absolute" silence about the "Dynamics" correction module, which can be "drilled" into an ordinary "cast iron" artillery shell! Not a single "dog" barked that the "Dynamics" module was not operational, but the company that developed this module was rotten! Now, as it were, an epiphany should come! However, nothing is heard about the "Dynamics" module, even after the "pecks of a roasted rooster in yellow shorts"! A thousand dollars for "Dynamics" vs $50.000 for "Krasnopol"! Can't you understand Russia with your mind? Or maybe, just, you can understand if you introduce amendments for the corruption of the bastard model of state administration that "reigns" in Russia with the support of Putin's rule!

      I have not heard anything about "Dynamics" and its prices. But I see you are sure of the strength of the regime. Maybe then, in accordance with the civil position in the gene. write a statement to the prosecutor. We'll see who you are and where you're from.

    Horror! DAK-1 is shoz junk? I remember that in 2005 we bought the latest American theodolite with a laser and all sorts of electronics. With its help, it was possible to determine distances with a laser rangefinder and immediately read the coordinates in the field. Attempts to use the jeepies navigator ended in terrible embarrassment for me, because the civilian version shamelessly lied. According to our tramp habit, I did not read the instructions, but immediately dragged the wonderful device into the yard. I inserted the battery, turned on the American miracle, and suddenly, when loading on the green display, the familiar DDR Carl Zeiss Jiena flashed. I laughed. The Americans appropriated the device of the disappeared GDR, adored by me, the company Carl Zeiss.

    It is interesting to watch a video of preparation for firing, but today it looks somehow ... archaic, during the Second World War, anti-aircraft gunners set fuses. The rangefinder is yes .... 65kg of Soviet reliability. I wonder if centimeters are used? they seem to be safer for gunners.

    Damn, the data input of the projectile through turning the head is, of course, archaism .. It seems like the 23rd year in the yard, they would have implemented data input via bluetooth ...
