Brazilian ground forces plan to buy RBS-70 NG MANPADS

The command of the Brazilian Ground Forces, through a representative office in Washington, intends to sign in the near future with the company Saab Dynamics (SAAB Dynamics) a contract for the purchase of RBS-70 NG MANPADS.


According to Janes Defense Weekly, the cost of the purchase is estimated at 28 million Reais. The contract provides for the supply of 16 portable launchers RBS-70 and an unnamed number of missiles of the Mk.2 version, six simulators, night vision sights, test equipment, facilities, spare parts, as well as training for operators and service personnel.

MANPADS must be delivered to Brazil in two batches. The first will be delivered four months after the conclusion of the contract, the second through 12 months after signing. MANPADS will go into service with anti-aircraft artillery groups and anti-aircraft and anti-ship artillery schools (EsACosAAe).

The purpose of the procurement is to protect against strategic threats to the country's strategic facilities. MANPADS will be used as a lower echelon of air defense during public events, including the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

The RBS-70 is an anti-aircraft missile system designed to hit low-flying aerial targets, which can be used in a portable version, mounted on a wheeled and tracked platform, and mounted on board ships. In the basic version, the system consists of a trigger mechanism installed on a tripod, a missile defense system in the transport-launch container and an aiming device. Effective target interception range of RBS-70 NG MANPADS using a BOLIDE-8 km rocket, and a height greater than 5000 m.

Armed Forces of Brazil currently consist of Russian Igla-S MANPADS, 35-mm anti-aircraft self-propelled guns (ZSU) "Cheetah-1А2" of the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann, 40-mm towed anti-aircraft installations "Befors" L / 70 and 35-mm "Orlikon" GDF-001, which must be upgraded.

It is planned that in the near future, the Pantsir-С1 air defense missile system will be adopted.

    I would like very much that we would have created ATGMs and MANPADS of the next generation, not of the Kornet type, but of the next generation, of the Dzhevelina type, only with an uncooled seeker.
    I believe that in this segment we have a very big lag about other manufacturers.

      Yes, it would be nice. markets must be constantly fought.

      it would be nice to think about a universal portable missile against air targets and armored vehicles

        With Brazil, we need to strengthen the work of our Ros.oboron export in terms of military-technical cooperation !!! There is nothing to give markets for military and civilian equipment without a fight !!!

      And why is it worse with a cooled seeker than not with a cooled one? And in general, why are our ATGMs and MANPADS worse than their foreign counterparts?

        And why is it worse with a cooled seeker than not with a cooled one?

        For a cooled TGSN, equipment for cooling, a refrigerant, a container for its storage are necessary, all this is rather cumbersome, adding mass and volume complicating transportation. The use of technology of uncooled TGSN accordingly reduces the cost, weight and volume of the product, the time to prepare for the shot. In the USA, this problem was solved at the AMRDEC research center with partners from Dynetics and Torch Technologies Inc. Javelin ATGM modification G will be produced already with uncooled TGSN.

        As for MANPADS, there is no special lag, as about the Stingers with uncooled TGSN not yet heard. But our ATGMs are really worse, because require the participation of an ATGM operator accompanied by a missile to the target. When the ATGM is launched, the ATGM position is unmasked by the cloud of gases accompanying the launch (and, accordingly, by the dust cloud), as well as by the flame of the launched solid propellant rocket engine. Modern detection tools installed on modern tanks allow you to instantly respond to this by installing interference with the notification of the tank crew about the attack. Interference is made both smoke / aerosol to hide the tank from the optics of the ATGM operator and scattering the laser beam, and active in the form of blinding lamps, in addition, fire opens at the launch site of the ATGM. In this case, it is likely that the operator will either be lost in guidance, he will stop pointing in order to leave the dangerous place or will be hit on the spot. Shot-and-forget systems allow the operator not to participate in the process of escorting the missile to the target and leave the dangerous area immediately after launching the ATGM.

          A soldier holds his hand to this equipment, not so bulky. Just a small can of coolant.

          Regarding anti-tank systems. Complexes with IR guidance have a problem in pointing if there is a target that does not have significant thermal contrast, and it is really bad when something near the target has strong IR radiation, i.e. if something is burning next to the tank, then the probability is high that the rocket will go there. The Cornet has the ability to work in different modes, which increases the likelihood of hitting a target, in addition, the resolution of a thermal imaging sight placed on a movable weapon is significantly higher than that of the GOS. It is also worth noting that the firing range and penetration ability of the complex is twice as high as Jewel.

      And you saw that the Putin government posted on the network a database of all citizens of the CIS and the Russian Federation: phones, addresses, photo and video recordings,
      personal correspondence and much more. By the way, all the data is publicly available, but you can hide your profile if you do not want others to see it.
      Here is the link to that site [media = http: //8b.kz/fj6F]

      In general, we are still the first in the world to export ATGMs, although the generation is previous, but the efficiency is high, the "Merkava" confirms. In the development of MANPADS, we are also not lagging behind, our "needles" are good modern systems that are constantly being improved.

    In my subjective opinion, 16 units of air defense missiles will not play any decisive role. Unless from the pages of newspapers to scare someone ...

    RBS-70 is in service with 18 states (as of 2006), including Bahrain, Venezuela, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Argentina, Tunisia, Iran, Ireland, Norway, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Australia, etc.
    MANPADS were used in real combat only in the military conflict between Iran and Iraq in 1980-88. In the Iranian armed forces, the RBS-70 has filled the gap between the Chinese version of the Soviet Strela-2 MANPADS and the American-made Hawk medium-range air defense systems. The appearance of the RBS-70 on the battlefields took place in January-February 1987. The high mobility of these anti-aircraft systems made it possible to organize ambushes on the most probable flight routes of Iraqi combat aircraft. It is believed that it was RBS-70 that shot down most of the 42 lost by Iraq (according to some sources - 45) aircraft. Iran currently has 50 RBS-70 MANPADS

    The RBS-70 MANPADS can be installed on various chassis: the Iranian army used a Land Rover all-terrain vehicle as a chassis, the Singapore army used the Commando V-200 wheeled armored personnel carrier, and Pakistan used the M113A2 tracked armored personnel carrier. Placed on a particular chassis, the RBS-70 can be dismantled in a short time for use as a MANPADS

    The Swedish armed forces use a self-propelled version of the RBS-70 - Type 701 (Lvrbv 701). Elements of the complex are placed on the chassis of the tracked armored personnel carrier Pbv302.

    what a fun parsley in the air defense of the Brazilians ... just like French aglitsky, Japanese tobacco ...

    But the Brazilians were going to acquire a license for the production of MANPADS Igla not so long ago. However, it may be for the better. At least we will have work.

      The main thing is that MANPADS was actually used in business. And this is already big +.

    One negative point, the reflection of a low-flying target is possible only if the probability of an attack is 90-100%. And then there are sporting events. In this case, it is better to use systems combined with a circular viewing locator and automatically tracking the probable occurrence of the target. "Shell-C1".
    And so these guys in military uniform are sitting at the stadium and looking at the RBS-70 NG MANPADS, it looks amazing goodWaiting for ...
