Aselsan has developed a thermal sight for the Kornet-E ATGM

The Turkish company Aselsan (Aselsan) has developed a lightweight thermal sight for equipping a portable Cornet-E laser-guided missile system manufactured by the Tula Instrument Design Bureau.


The Aselsan company refused to name the customer of thermal imaging sights for the Kornet-E ATGM system, but it is known that earlier the command of the Turkish Land Forces purchased a party of this type of ATGM in Russia.

According to the International Defense Review, with reference to the Aselsan information, the Sager TS removable thermal sight provides target detection and recognition, as well as their fire engagement in the entire range of the Cornet-E "ATGM" day and night including in adverse weather conditions. Reportedly, the used sight of the original design at night limits the range of target destruction to 5500 m.

The new thermal sight forms an image using optical instruments of the direct image of the Kornet-E ATGM and the Sager TS optical collimator. In practice, this means that the operator when shooting is located behind the scope and launcher, which increases its survivability.

The Sager TS thermal sight provides a smooth, linear zoom function from x2 to x25. According to the company, the device received three preset field of view, it is not subject to "illumination" by a bright flash during the launch of an ATGM (at night). The sight uses image enhancement algorithms, a freeze frame function, and a simple procedure to check the zero line of aiming.

The mass of the Sager TS thermal sight with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery (ensures operation for 5 h) is 7 kg. Additional external lithium-ion batteries can extend the time of continuous sight operation up to 12 h. The package includes a charger for AC and DC networks, as well as other additional devices, including a solar charger and an AC / DC adapter (AC). / dc) for mains voltage 220B.

The Kornet-E ATGM can fire two types of ATGM: 9M133-1 with a tandem-shaped cumulative warhead capable of piercing steel armor with a thickness of 1000-1200 mm for active-reactive defense (ERA); 9M133F-1 with thermobaric warheads of increased power, effective during the enemy's fire attack in combat operations in urban areas and in the mountains.

    It’s cool to supply NATO with modern weapons models)) and even Turkey, which looks in the direction of the beloved Russian Federation of Syria.

    And someone knows how simplified the export model is compared to the one in the Russian Armed Forces.

        But there is no f-ha. In 2009 alone, about 800 sets were delivered. For 2012 and 2013, I don’t know the numbers

          It is unlikely that this information is true. Because he was not seen in the troops.

            In 2012, they delivered 20 complexes to the Southern District, but there were really no mass deliveries, they delivered selectively.

    And what are the benefits for Russia from this contract? Does Russia get any technology? No! The Turkish side does not disclose for whom it does, which means it is a potential adversary of our interests in the region. And who needs to burn heavy equipment in the city? To the terrorists. And where are the warriors now in urban conditions on bl. east? Syria, Yemen and maybe soon Lebanon

      What benefits do you need? We sold a weapon, they upgraded it. It’s worth talking about selling or not, and then it’s their personal business. Another question is what we will not sell, others will sell. We will be left without money. This is an export, trimmed version should be.

        we are good, we will sell everything that is possible, but we will think later and later it will be a story as with ak 47 it can be repeated more than once

    Do not piss !!! Our designers don't sleep either! More recently, the Ministry of Defense has proposed homing systems for "cornets" built into the sight !!! Those. the price of the rocket, at the same time, will remain at the same level, and the previous disadvantages (laser irradiation of the target) can be eliminated programmatically by forcing the laser to guide the rocket to the target above its level (with a slide), without irradiating the target and only when the rocket approaches at a short distance, irradiate the target, not giving time to react.

      This guidance mode has already been implemented in the "Combat", "Barrier", "Skif" complexes, etc.

        "Combat" - only if it is provided by the equipment of the tank.
        "Barrier" - helicopter modification only.

        But about the Belarusian "Skif" - here, yes, well done. They are the only ones who were able to "fasten" the automatic target tracking system to the portable complex. However, after their "Adunka" it is not surprising.

          "by forcing the laser to guide the missile to the target above its level (with a slide), without irradiating the target and only when the missile approaches at a short distance, irradiate the target without giving time for a reaction. "
          Here we are not talking about automatic target tracking, we are talking about exceeding the missile's flight path over the target's line of sight. Thus, until the last moment, the target is not irradiated and there is no interference for observing the target from its own missile. The logical development of this guidance method will be to hit the target from above, in flight, with a shock core. This is what KB "Luch" is doing.
          And you are absolutely right about automatic target tracking - bravo OJSC "Peleng".

            This is also Soviet know-how. Dust mode. I don’t quite understand why it is so protruded
            Quote: mga04
            The logical development of this guidance method will be the defeat of the target from above, on the span, by the strike nucleus.

            It has long been implemented by the Swedes.
