LRASM: Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile - New American anti-ship missile

45
In the United States successfully tested the new long-range anti-ship missiles (anti-ship missiles). The rockets manufactured by Lockheed Martin were launched from the TLU - vertical Mk 41 launcher. According to Lockheed Martin, the 4 launch of LRASM missile simulators was carried out. The purpose of the tests was to check the release of missiles from the TLU without damaging its design, covering the missiles themselves, the air pressure receiver. Tests were carried out to assess the risk level of the use of new anti-ship missiles from the TLU Mk 41 and were carried out as part of the integration of new anti-ship missiles into modern naval armament.


The LRASM project missiles are high-precision, autonomous anti-ship missiles, which are launched outside the enemy’s air defense system, and are designed for use in the United States Air Force and Navy. At the end of 2013, Lockheed Martin plans to conduct flight tests of the LRASM BTV (Boosted Test Vehicle) rocket variant from the same vertical launcher, and next year will launch the 2 launch of guided test missiles at the expense of the federal budget (4 previous launches were made on company money).
A new American anti-ship missile system LRASM is being created to replace the outdated Harpoon anti-ship missile system designed by Boeing.

The need to develop a new anti-ship missile is due to the fact that the missiles available in the arsenal of the US Navy do not have sufficient flight range and are extremely vulnerable to the breakthrough of the modern naval air defense system. Work under the LRASM program involves creating options weapons, which can quickly enter service with the US Navy after the end of a series of flight tests in 2013-2014.

LRASM: Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile - New American anti-ship missile

The LARSM anti-ship missile can be equipped with a high-explosive or armor-piercing combat units and is an all-weather, autonomous weapon that can be used at any time of the day. The CRP is equipped with a multimode homing head, a data transmission line, a modified digital noise-protected satellite navigation system, which is designed to detect and destroy the highest priority targets in the enemy's ship order.

Since the US Navy’s decommissioning of the anti-ship version of the famous Tomahawk missile - TASM - the US Navy has been without long-range anti-ship weapons. The only specialized anti-ship missile (not counting the possibility of using Standards against enemy ships) was the RGM-86 Garpun rocket. This is a fairly effective weapon, but the range of the missile, even in its best modifications, did not exceed the line in 280 km.

For a long time, the US Navy did not pay much attention to this problem. The Cold War ended happily: the Russian fleet, which had been reduced in size many times over, ceased to pose the level of threat that could require the US military to develop a new long-range anti-ship missile. American admirals fleet They were absolutely sure that the F / A-18 deck aircraft armed with Harpoon missiles with a massive attack could destroy absolutely any existing surface ship of the enemy. For those rare cases in which the enemy surface ship approached the defeat distance to the US surface ship, the Harpoons were enough for self-defense.


In all this, there was only 1 lack: “Harpoon”, being a rocket of a fairly old performance, did not fit the modern vertical launch cells Mk-41. At the same time, the command of the American fleet in the 2000-ies got rid of all the missiles that did not fit this universal PU (thereby drastically reducing the cost of maintaining launch systems), but the military had to keep the Harpoon rocket with its container launchers Mk-141 settings.

At the same time, the traditional fodder "Shalashik", consisting of 2-x directed in opposite directions of PU Mk-141, concealed a number of shortcomings. Such launchers occupied quite a lot of space on the ship's deck and interfered with other weapons systems. To launch the harpoon anti-ship missiles, it was necessary to turn overboard to the enemy (and this took time: in addition, no more than ½ of all missiles could be fired in one salvo). Finally - and this was the main drawback - the sticking launchers significantly increased the ship's ESR and its visibility on enemy radar.

Admirals of the US Navy tried to solve this problem. But Congress, in its time (as far back as 90), did not give money to the version of the Harpoon, which was adapted for vertical launch. The Cold War ended, the US Navy conducted the most extensive weapons write-off in its stories and could do with existing anti-ship missiles. However, by 2000, the situation has changed. The rapid growth of the Chinese fleet — especially the Chinese’s purchase of destroyers with long-range air defense systems and the aircraft carrier Liaoning (formerly Varyag) caused serious concern to the US military. Fighters patrolling the sky and long-range anti-aircraft missiles made the range of "Harpoons" not so safe. In addition, the importance of ESR reduction technologies has grown significantly as more advanced homing heads of anti-ship missiles were deployed.


In principle, the US Navy without any problems could return to the armament of TASM - good, both of its components, "Tomahawk" and "Harpoon" still remained in production. But the PKR data were already the last century of this type of weapon. The US Navy needed the best weapons. That is why in the 2009 year, the Advanced Defense Research Agency - DARPA - addressed Lockheed with a proposal to create a promising long-range anti-ship missile system relating to a new generation. During the work on this project, 2 identified promising areas:

LRASM-A is a long-range anti-ship missile with stealth technology and moving at subsonic speeds.
LRASM-B - supersonic RCC, according to the scheme similar to the Russian-Indian development "BrahMos".

In January, 2012, after a thorough comparison of the projects, it was decided to abandon the LRASM-B project. The United States does not have a particularly rich experience in the development of supersonic rockets, and would inevitably find itself in this field as a catching side. In this case, the US stealth technology successfully lead. In addition, experts believe that the decision that put an end to the LRASM-B project was influenced by Taiwan’s test of its own supersonic anti-ship missile. The Americans decided that in the most extreme case they could always turn to their long-time ally for a license, not its release. As a result, all efforts of Lockheed engineers were focused on the LRASM-A project.

LRASM-A was created by Strike Control, located in Orlando, Florida, as a low-profile subsonic cruise missile, equipped with additional sensors, with a high survival rate. The rocket was created on the basis of the project of the Kyrgyz Republic air-based AGM-158B JASSM-ER with the installation of additional systems and sensors. It is assumed that the rocket LRASM-A will be equipped with high-explosive fragmentation warhead. To ensure combat survivability, a new anti-ship missile must perform vigorous maneuvers, which will require a significant increase in the characteristics of the propulsion system.


As carriers of the new anti-ship missile, surface ships are supposed to have received vertical Mk-41 launchers, F-35 and F / A-18F aircraft. Also, interest in deploying such missiles has already been expressed by the US Air Force, who want to get the opportunity to use missiles from the B-1B strategic bombers. About the possibility of deploying missiles on submarines so far nothing is known.

It is assumed that the LRASM rocket uses a comprehensive, multi-component system for searching and identifying surface targets. In addition to the inertial satellite guidance system, the rocket is equipped with a radar homing head for a moving object and an optical-electronic guidance system. At the same time, an entire archive of images of potential enemy ships from various angles is stored in the memory of the onboard computer of the rocket, which helps the anti-ship missiles to hit the desired targets.

RCC can be launched into the search area without initial target designation: after entering a given sector, the rocket independently selects the search pattern and tries to find the target. During the flight, the rocket in continuous mode maintains a two-way communication channel with satellite systems, with a carrier, specifying information regarding the finding of targets, the optimal trajectory of movement and potentially dangerous search areas. The rocket sensor equipment is able to identify the ships encountered, and find among them those that coincide with the pre-programmed target parameters.

Having determined these parameters, the LRASM anti-ship missile formulates a plan for the upcoming attack. Flying missiles can communicate with each other and can carry out a complex attack on enemy surface connections. The targets are attacked at ultra-low flight altitude: at the same time, the anti-ship missile chooses the optimal route to the target, avoiding escort ships and choosing the attack vector that is least beneficial for the enemy’s anti-aircraft countermeasures. In this case, the rocket is actively using electronic warfare equipment.

      Only Granite weighs 7 tons, and a range of 625 km is not universal (suitable for the Air Force). This is about the subsonic option.
      In general, it is rather closer to Bramos in a supersonic version. (Although this direction is recognized as technologically risky and closed - at the moment)

          For supersonic you need to pay mass-dimensional characteristics. Bramos weighs 3 tons and its length in the TPK is 8,9 m. (Without the TPK 8,5 m.) With a range of not more than 290 km. again, subject to a flight at an altitude of 14 km. When flying at low altitude, the range drops to 120 km. The same AGM-158B JASSM-ER which is the prototype LRASM has a length of only 4,3m. and a mass of just over a ton, with a range of 1000 km.
          And as you put it, “the mattresses” have problems not with supersonic, but in order to create supersonic anti-ship missiles in the dimensions of the corresponding UVP Mk.41. The eight-meter "sausage" will not fit there ...

                TTX Onyx as a missile in service never not officially published
                300km is the range taken from the brochures of Yakhontov and Bramos, which are export missiles, and the range of all export missiles is limited by the MTCR to 300km, which is why the tactical 3M14 Caliber in export version shoots at 300km, and in the domestic up to 2700km

                last year, during the PBRK Bastion exercises, they shot Onyxes at full range for more than 400km

                    Hello Andrey.

                    (quietly picking up a jaw that collapsed on the floor) And at the same time - it also accelerates to supersonic in the final section ?! Or a purely subsonic option?

                    3M14 is the usual tactical CRBD, i.e. subsonic. length 6.2m

                    3M54 subsonic anti-ship missiles. length 6.2m
                    3M54-1 subsonic anti-ship missiles with supersonic stage. length 8.2m

                    the range of these anti-ship missiles is reliably unknown, but again, information slipped from an interview with the commander of the CFL that the maximum range of anti-ship missiles of the Caliber complex was 375 km, and the range for ground targets was up to 2700 km
                    this interview was just after the training firing of the Republic of Dagestan in the framework of the Caucasus 2012



                    By the way, in general, part of the missiles of the Caliber complex missiles have a length limit of 6.2 m for the possibility of firing from shortened submarine submarines (or shortened air-craft)

                everything is very simple
                weight 3M-14 1800kg
                weight ARGS-14 ~ 40kg
                2600-2700km is probably a range with a nuclear warhead whose mass does not exceed 100-150kg
                the range with the maximum conventional warhead 450kg also judging by the information about the tests of Severodvinsk is 1400-1600km.

                the LRASM rocket is based on the JASSM-ER rocket, its range is 800km, it also has ARLGSN, warhead mass is at least 400kg, and the mass of the rocket itself is ~ 1000kg

                now the attention of the 3M-14 has a mass of 1800kg and flies from a warhead of 450kg to a distance of ~ 1500km, and LRASM has a mass of ~ 1000kg and flies from a warhead of 400kg to 800km

                do you really see the paradox here? bully
                Well, are you now proud of the creative team of the Novator Design Bureau or will you again be delirious lol

                    yeah .. that’s why the range of the BGM-109e is indicated at 2400 km, only this range is achieved with NWF, and the range from tomahawks with OFBCH has always been 1600 km.

                    the difference between tactical and anti-ship missiles and generally no in terms of range
                    range depends solely on fuel reserves and payload (warhead + control / guidance system)
                    actually the Tomahawk is a vivid example of how a tactical missile easily turns into a PCR
                    by the way, you still haven’t done an elementary analysis of LRASM or at least Tomahawk on the very masses of components of the guidance system

                    The range of tactical missiles is always greater than anti-ship missiles, as TERCOM equipment takes up much less space and, accordingly, the fuel supply is larger, so the Tactical Tomahawk flies 1600 km., while its anti-ship counterpart only 450 km.

                    Let's first focus on 3M14, you assure that this missile with a radar homing system has a range of 1600 km., Then please indicate the source of this information. The respondent you mentioned, Commander of the Caspian Flotilla, Rear Admiral Alekminsky, said in an interview that a missile system was installed on the ship, "which has a range of 375 km on surface targets and up to 2 km on coastal targets." It is not indicated why the same missile has such different range indicators. Why does the surface range make up only 600% of the coastal range?
                    You simply did not understand what you read, emotions prevent you from thinking.
                    The answer is simple, in a 3M14 rocket with a range of 1600km. this is not RCC, but tactical missile defense, which does not need a bulky radar and a digital computer, in connection with this the fuel supply is larger and the dry weight of the rocket is less. As an example:
                    RCC BGM-109B, RLGSN with BTsVM make up just over 1 m. Of the total length of the rocket 5,56 m (without starting accelerator).
                    Tactical KR BGM-109C, GOS TERCOM and ANN takes up only 0,5 m., The remaining 0,5 m. An additional fuel tank of at least 440 liters is installed. That's why the range of tactical missiles is more than anti-ship missiles at times.
                    BGM-109BBGM-109C
                    “Well, at last you still admitted that the LM still shamelessly lying about 800 km of LRASM” - LM said that under the LRASM program, it makes anti-ship missiles based on the JASSM-ER with a range of up to 800 km., there are no claims that they Already done it was not, you probably dreamed, like my confession. There is no doubt that they can not.

                    "whose firing range on surface targets is 375 km, and on a coastal target - up to 2 km."

                    everything is very simple
                    he almost certainly had in mind a range of 3M-54-1 with a supersonic step

                    and up to 2 km along the coastal target. "

                    all right, the KR 3M-14 is primarily intended for firing at stationary targets, as firing at such a distance at any moving targets (in particular NK) is pointless.
                    The name of the missiles is given not on the basis of all possible missile uses, but on the basis of the capabilities that it performs most effectively.
                    in the same way, no one calls ATGMs ATGs, although they have the possibility of hitting helicopters, or nobody calls an ATGM sidewinder missile, although she learned how to hit armored vehicles.
                    just like with 3M-14, no one will shoot at ships at 1600km, although there is a theoretical possibility

                    “Well, at last you still admitted that the LM still shamelessly lying about 800 km of LRASM” - LM said that under the LRASM program, it makes anti-ship missiles based on the JASSM-ER with a range of up to 800 km., there are no claims that they Already done it was not, you probably dreamed, like my confession. There is no doubt that they can not.
                    "the rest of your senseless chatter is very easily broken by the words of the commander of CFL" - argue or don’t slip into abomination ...

                    you contradict yourself
                    if you think that LM do not lie and LRASM with ARLGSN will fly at 800 km, then the range of almost two times heavier 3M-14 at 1500 km absolutely does not look unusual
                    in fact, you have two options: either you believe LM and, accordingly, Novator, or none of them crying
                    I personally like both options)

                    and your pictures with Tomahawks certainly look interesting, but a little rotten, yet 30 years have passed, although the principle is of course the same, only the possibilities have changed

    Bramos weighs 3 tons and its length in the TPK is 8,9 m. (Without the TPK 8,5 m.) With a range of not more than 290 km. Again, subject to a flight at an altitude of 14 km. When flying at low altitude, the range drops to 120 km. The same AGM-158B JASSM-ER which is the prototype of LRASM has a length of only 4,3m. and a mass of a little more than a ton, with a range of 1000 km.

    Bramos flies to the target along a combined path, dropping 75 km to the target to a height of 5-10 m. The length is 4.3 m and weight is 1000 tons, since it flies 1000 km. Without a proper supply of fuel, probably due to the low speed and the planning effect, the Americans really hope for their renowned stealth, due to which fuel the rocket will maneuver vigorously in the final section, at what speed it will reach the target area.

      A hypersonic missile will be brought to mind years through 7-10 (if brought up). And her specificity is different. It was developed under the concept of a quick global strike. So far, such missiles can only be launched from aircraft carriers (otherwise they won’t get to hypersound). And this notorious hypersound is possible only in the discharged layers of the atmosphere - 15-20 km. Throwing such parabolic numbers to drown the Chinese destroyer is a luxury even for Americans. It is easier to make subsonic CD, quite simple and cheap - massive. The media called different ranges - from 550 to 750 km. With their capabilities, missile defense systems for missiles are not the biggest problem. A low-altitude subsonic flight profile greatly reduces its visibility for the radar - the radio horizon ...

      Hypersonic anti-ship missiles are. Russia has X-32 (well, almost hypersound) and at the end of tests - Zircon (for our universal cells of our new and updated ships).
      The United States so far has only prototypes of the Kyrgyz Republic (!), But not anti-ship missiles.

    Something similar (not quite, of course) was developed in the USSR in the late 80s - the X-65C. RCC was carried out on the basis of the X-55 TFR, according to some reports, it had a range of up to 600 kM and worked on the principle of "shot - forgot." RCC entered the given square by the inertial system and there it began to barrage, turning the GOS into the search mode. To date, the fate of this racket is not monitored.

            It’s difficult to judge why the X-65 development “withered”, the development was quite advanced, the radar signals of potential targets were put in memory and priority was set, I think you need to take into account the general pogrom that occurred in our country in 1990-2000, and as one of the reasons - elimination (reduction) of our missile-carrying MA. But then I rummaged through the Internet and found where the X-65 tracks lead - naturally to China (HN-2).

Unfortunately, information on the X-65 is not available to me right now because I'm on a business trip, so I speak from memory (I hope it does not fail me).

                In fact, it has been possible for quite some time. At GOS "Gran-K" installed on the X-35UE, in the dual-band active radar channel, the following are used:
                - complex signals with a large base;
                - coherent accumulation of signals and their Doppler filtering based on FFT;
                - algorithmic principles of signal processing and operating modes;
                - formation of a radar portrait of the target for its recognition;

    we have a rocket superior to this rocket. Her name is X-32.
    In the "Rainbow" created the X-32 missile. If the X-22, still standing in service, goes to the target, first gaining a height of 22000 meters, accelerating to 3600 km / h, then the X-32, detached from the aircraft, explodes almost into near space - 40 km in height . There she “looks” very far “beyond the horizon”, finding targets from 600 to 1000 kilometers. The warhead of this cruise missile is much smarter than the X-22 - it itself can classify targets and select the most important: an aircraft carrier or a cruiser. And the target X-32 goes at a speed of 6-7 M. It is almost impossible to intercept it.
    Tests RCC X-32 were successful already in the late 90s. Yes, only then everything stalled.
    In general, in the vastness of the Internet, you can find out the approximate characteristics of this rocket:
    Target hit range - up to 1000 km.
    Speed ​​- 6-7 Machs.
    Warhead weight - up to 1000 kg.
    Flight altitude - 40 km.
    Naturally, she will have a perfect guidance system and a high level of noise immunity.
    Estimated performance characteristics are impressive and have no equal. You can also find information that the Tu-22M3M and Tu-22M3 aircraft are just being prepared for use along with the rest of the weapons of this particular missile.
    So we have something to answer to American missiles.

    When we discuss the advantages of supersonic and hypersonic anti-ship missiles over subsonic ones with stealth elements, from the point of view of detection and stable tracking, the most difficult goals are subsonic highly maneuverable and hardly detectable due to stealth anti-ship missiles. Indeed, in supersound, and even more so in hypersound, the RCC maneuver is sharply limited due to the large values ​​of overloads arising from maneuvers at such speeds. In addition, the higher the speed, the greater the aerodynamic heating of the RCC and, therefore, the higher the probability of its detection. Of great importance is the presence of a multi-mode GOS in the RCC under consideration and the ability of this RCC to exchange data with other RCC, ships and aircraft in real time, which allows you to redirect the RCC from one target to another in flight and also use the data obtained by its GOS to control the flight of others, "silent" RCC. Those. the approach is similar to the one used to create Granites, but implemented at a much higher technical level

In addition, the higher the speed, the greater the aerodynamic heating of the RCC and, therefore, the higher the probability of its detection.

      here I do not agree. Of course, in something you are right - but not in everything. A rocket has already been created which can actively maneuver at a speed of 2.1 km / s with overloads of 20-30 units in the initial and final sections of the flight, and it is also made using stealth technology. This is a rocket from the Iskander complex. So who prevents to make a similar in characteristics but superior in range RCC? nothing.
      And the existence of the X-32 missile with the above characteristics against the background of the Iskander rocket is very real.

      Wrong. From the theory of air combat (exterminators) it is known that the supply of kinetic energy (altitude and speed) is a critical parameter for which a tactical battle is conducted in a maneuverable battle.
      A supersonic rocket has the ability to change its SITUATION IN SPACE to a large extent - let it be a lower DEGREE relative to the original course, but in METERS it will be more or the same - remember what overload is MEASURED in general?
      But supersonic has its advantages - it leaves THREE-FOUR times less time for the air defense system’s response, this time (and the main thing for stealth is the HORIZON, which is very close to a low-lying rocket and ship), and secondly, it allows intensive MANEUVER REPEAT - “while the fat dries - the thin one dies” - having lost speed on the maneuver, the supersonic will have a couple more of the same ... and the subsonic will accelerate again.

    LRASM is a long-range winged rocket with extended wings, made by stealth technology. It is driven by a turbojet engine. The missile is suitable for launching from aircraft (including deck F / A-18F and, in the future, F-35) and from the Mk-41 launch cells of surface ships.
