In the United States successfully tested the long-range RCC LRASM

27
In the United States, successful tests were carried out on the vertical launch of long-range anti-ship missile (LRASM) long-range anti-ship missiles (anti-ship missiles). The Lockheed Martin missiles were launched from the Mk 41 vertical launcher (TLU).


As the Lockheed Martin company reported, four launches of LRASM missile simulators were carried out, which, when launched, broke through the upper covers of the TLU cells made of composite material. The purpose of the test was to verify the release of the missiles from the TLU without damaging its design, the receiver of the air pressure and the covering of the missiles themselves. Tests were conducted to assess the risk of using new anti-ship missiles from VPU Mk 41 using Lockheed Martin funds as part of integrating new anti-ship missiles into ship armaments and evaluating their successful operation as offensive anti-ship weapons OASuW (Offensive Anti-Surface Warfare).

LRASM missiles are autonomous high-precision anti-ship missiles, launched outside the object defense zone, and are intended for use in the Navy and the US Air Force.
At the end of 2013, Lockheed Martin will conduct flight tests of the LRASM BTV (Boosted Test Vehicle) missile from the TLU Mk 41, and at 2014, it will conduct two flights of guided test missiles using federal means.

The new LRASM RCC is being developed to replace the outdated Boaring RCC "Harpoon". The need to create a new anti-ship missile system is due to the fact that the missiles in the US Navy’s arsenal do not have sufficient flight range and are vulnerable to the breakthrough of a modern ship defense system. The LRASM program is designed to demonstrate options for weapons that could quickly enter service with the Navy after the completion of flight tests in 2013-2014.

ROV LARSM is equipped with armor-piercing or high-explosive warheads, is an autonomous all-weather weapon that can be used at any time of the day.

The rocket is equipped with a multimode homing head, a data transmission line, and an improved digital noise-proof satellite navigation system for detecting and destroying the highest priority targets in a ship's warrant.

    That is, they made something equivalent to "granite" as I understand it. Achievement.

      Granite is, alas, yesterday, if not the day before. Therefore, one cannot speak of equivalence in this case. Moreover, in addition to a much greater range, modern multi-mode missile homing and data exchange with other interacting systems, this anti-ship missile has much smaller dimensions and weight than Granite and can also be launched from unified vertical launch installations that are widely used on ships of various like the US Navy and its allies, not only for anti-ship missiles, but also for other types of missiles. Those. advantages, at least on paper, compared with Granite, mass. Here's how this RCC will show itself in real life is a big question.

        It is naive of course to believe that Amer will calm down on this? They will try to increase the speed of their RCC. I wonder how we are doing with combat information management systems.

          RCC speed is not an end in itself, because with an increase in the speed of the anti-ship missile, its maneuverability decreases. It is known that it is much easier to detect a non-maneuvering target, take on a stable escort, and therefore intercept a non-maneuvering target at a given line. In addition, the size of the target and, consequently, its effective reflective surface play an important role. Granite, no matter how much praised it was, was still a monster. And his widely advertised intellectual abilities, including the ability to fly in the "flock" and the ability to take control of all the other anti-ship missiles of the "flock" have never been tested and confirmed in a real combat situation, including in the conditions of the use of active interference created by modern means of electronic warfare to channels of data exchange between missiles. But the multi-mode seeker on the discussed RCC is serious. Such a GOS and special management is not required. The target itself will find in a given sector, itself identifies it, and itself will provide guidance to this target. Moreover, at different stages of homing, various homing methods (from passive and active, to their combinations) can be used to ensure a rational ratio between the secrecy of the anti-ship missile and the probability of hitting the target

          And further. There is a proposal to carefully assess the advantages and disadvantages of weapons and military equipment of a potential enemy, i.e. not panicking about advertising the next "wunderwaffe", but also not throwing hats on it (even if the fur industry has achieved excellent performance indicators for their production). And do not fall for the subtle flattery of the authors of articles in the "foreign" media and special. magazines. Flattery is a dangerous thing. Lulls ... sometimes to death

      there is nothing special about LRASM
      this is a common subsonic CD, all the innovations come down to a control system, however it is also a lot

    But how loudly written are the successful tests for the vertical launch of new missiles. Actually testing a missile simulator on a launcher. PR is the main weapon of the uslovtsy.

    They are trying in vain if Rogozin in the very near future does not restore order in the USC, they do not have to spend much on new RCC - anyway, there will be no goals

    Previously, schematics were used for presentations, but now you have to shoot a whole expensive film .. no wonder that everything is so expensive for them. Interestingly, the task for engineers is already given out - like "I want this crap to fly like this. And shoot it down like this," then a video clip. "Engineers" shoot their video in response, everyone is happy.

    Subsonic ... So what, that a large radius, it will be cut off by the ship’s air defense without straining. Unless dozens of them run.

      the problem is that they will fly in dozens, because the cost of the ship and a dozen missiles are not comparable ...

    Yes, we can also answer.
    X-35 anti-ship missile:
    A powerful warhead allows one missile to destroy a warship with a displacement of 5000 tons. Flight speed (number M) - 0,8 - 0,85

    3M55 "Onyx"
    Weight: 3100 kg
    Speed ​​at altitude: 750 m / s
    Surface Speed: 2 M
    Range:
    along a combined trajectory - 300 km
    along a low-altitude trajectory - 120 km
    flight altitude 10-14000m

        Well, then the same P-1000 "Vulcan" is quite comparable, the problem is only with target designation ...

        Of course there is, only as long as there is no exact data on the onyx, only its export brother, and besides, our caliber flies on dial if the memory does not change from 1500 to 2500 km .... so we need to compare them

          This applies to the ZM-14, designed to destroy ground targets. In general, there are words of the commander of the Caspian flotilla, Rear Admiral Sergei Alekminsky: "I will say that the best ship is not in quotes, but in the fact that it is the first surface ship in history, which is armed with the latest missile system "Caliber". Which is not on more than one missile ship of the Navy. In principle, not one surface ship now has such a long range of fire as our ship. It shoots more than two thousand kilometers at a coastal target. And 350 kilometers for a sea target. "

            it doesn’t matter
            with the same success it can be equipped with the ARGSN only pointlessly, the range of subsonic cruise missiles is up to 5000km, but their speed makes their aiming at large distances impossible, and no efficiency
            Americans have already abandoned anti-ship tomahawks, the new LRASM is essentially the same as they just got a new stylish design and a new breo

    At a time when the Americans will make supersonic anti-ship missiles, one of our destroyers with hypersonic missiles.
    Well, you can’t say anything beautiful, and of course we are bad guys again. And the rocket seems to go around the visibility zone of naval air defense comes from the stern and the explosion is from the side, I doubt that the Yanks have such technologies, breddddddddd.

    The fact is that the Harpoon anti-ship missile system is not capable of launching Mk 41 from the cells (VPU), so they make a new anti-ship missile system for it, but I still hope that the Russians have something to answer for, because anti-ship missiles are their thing !? !

    The Americans once again naively believe that our ships will sail like blind kittens: we have no detection stations, including over-the-horizon, a helicopter in the sky does not scan space, and the ships of the order do not duplicate each other, and there are no satellites at all. But they have .... yes, they have everything. Of course the graphics are impressive. Our ships look very nice. But instead of the Ak-630, they could have put the "Dagger", and if the fantasy is further developed, then it is possible to launch from ours in the form of an answer and "Zircon", and "Bramos-2", Caliber is the same, but what , it will be beautiful. The adversary may not know that we do not have them yet, because the video is all the same, the public will like it!

    Then you need to order rockets from hundreds of Chinese, it will be cheaper. Against hundreds, not a single air defense can stand.
