ATGM "Cornet" is gaining popularity among Iraqi militants

54
Military parity with reference to the British weekly journal "Jane's Defense Weekly" reports that from January 1 to the beginning of June of this year, five tanks Iraqi army M1 "Abrams" (Abrams) were hit by anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs), six helicopters shot down from MANPADS and heavy machine guns.

ATGM "Cornet" is gaining popularity among Iraqi militants


Tanks "Abrams" are the main for the army of Iraq. They were supplied by the United States in 2010-2012. The total number of armored vehicles delivered is 140 units. Since their appearance in Iraq, a total of X-NUMX Abrams have been damaged, and 28 of them have been punched through with ATGMs.

Cumulative charge rockets are particularly effective for hitting the crew of the tank and do not lead to the complete destruction of combat vehicles, divided into compartments, as in Ambrams. Iraqis, according to the British weekly, have big problems with the management and proper operation of tanks.

A video appeared on the Internet that captured a tank that exploded from the inside after hitting the Kornet 9М113 ATGM rocket. It is noted that the complex received recognition from the militants of the movement "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant." Along with him, Sunni extremists successfully use RPG-7 and М79 "Wasp". Although the M79 grenade launchers (from the arsenal of the Yugoslav army) are more widely used in neighboring Syria, and in Iraq they are rarely seen.



The weekly also speaks about the big losses of other armored vehicles in the Iraqi army: BMP-1, M113 armored personnel carriers, T-55 tanks and Hammer armored vehicles.

One of the US officials said the publication that since the beginning of the year, gunmen shot down 6 of Iraqi helicopters, and 60 suffered significant damage, which is very sensitive to the existing helicopter fleet. True, he does not specify which types of helicopters were shot down or damaged. But judging by the clips posted by Islamists in the Network, at least two Russian-launched Mi-24 / 35 attack helicopters were attacked from MANPADS.

          Diplomatic and propaganda war S.Sh.A. and their "friends-invaders" against Russia continues. Syria, which had previously acquired Russian and Ukrainian weapons, including the Kornet anti-tank missile systems, also came under fire. The authority of the military-industrial complex of Ukraine is affected, which led to the appearance of this message in Izvestia of March 31, 2003.

          Ukraine did not supply anti-tank systems to Iraq
          Representatives of the defense departments of Ukraine denied reports that Ukrainian companies had sold Russian-made anti-tank missiles to Iraq. Recall that March 30, 2003 On the pages of the Newsweek weekly newspaper, Washington’s opinion was published that Iraq has 1 Russian anti-tank Cornet systems.
          As the weekly wrote with reference to unnamed Pentagon representatives, the US believes that Ukrainian companies, as well as some “enterprising Syrian generals and the Syrian government itself,” were involved in the supply of missiles to Iraq. According to the weekly, in January 2003 Ukrainian companies and Syrian authorities delivered about 500 Cornet missiles to Iraq. The US military believes that two Abrams tanks, which were destroyed in the battles near the city of Es Samava in southern Iraq, were hit precisely by the Cornet missiles
          . The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Security and Defense, Georgy Kryuchkov, categorically denied the possibility of any such supply of weapons. In addition, according to Valentin Petrov, Deputy Chairman of the Government Council on National Defense and Security of Ukraine, there are no non-state companies involved in arms sales in the country, and this is impossible due to the “very strict arms export control system in the country,” reports AP .

      The second-class Kornet portable and remote anti-tank missile system is designed to defeat modern and promising armored vehicles equipped with dynamic defense, fortifications, enemy manpower, low-speed air, surface targets at any time, in difficult weather conditions, in the presence of passive and active optical interference.

      The Kornet complex was developed at the Instrument Design Bureau, Tula.
      Performance characteristics:
      Maximum firing range:
      In the afternoon - 5500 m.; At night - 3500 m
      Minimum firing range: 100 m
      Warheads: Tandem cumulative: Mass of explosives: 4,6 kg
      Penetration for DZ:
      Cornet-E - 1200 mm Homogeneous Armor
      Cornet-D - 1300 mm Homogeneous Armor
      Penetration without DZ:
      Cornet-E - 1300 mm Homogeneous Armor
      Cornet-D - 1400 mm Homogeneous Armor
      Penetration of concrete monolith: not less than 3000 mm
      Thermal Sight 1PN-79 "Metis-2":
      Weight: 11 kg
      Target detection / firing range at night: up to 4500 m
      Target Recognition Range: 2500 m
      Staff battle calculation: 2 people
      Portable weight 9P163M-1 (on a tripod): 26 kg
      Combat rate of fire: 2 — 3 rds / min
      PU reload time: 30 s

      Modifications:
      Cornet-E is an export modification of the Cornet complex.
      Kornet-D - an upgraded version of the Kornet complex (firing range - 10 km, armor penetration 1300 mm per DZ) [3].
      Cornet-EM is an export version of the Cornet-D complex [4].
      Kornet-T - self-propelled launcher - 9P162 combat vehicle based on the BMP-3 chassis ("699 object").

      The main difference from the previous ATGM "Bassoon", "Competition" and "Metis" - in the guidance system. If the ATGM control of the latter was carried out by wire, the ATGM “Cornet” is induced by a laser beam.

            Got it. Even during the war with Iran, the "little ones" Iraq were shot, and the "Cornet" is not the most modern for a long time ... Even you have more modern developments there on the "Luch" ... But the trouble is the beginning, something tells me that soon "Granaries" with "Assaults" and "Attacks" will meet ... that's what they are sure to "tear off the towers" ...

As well as a sniper and others in light shelters, behind not very capital walls, etc. In a vulnerable place (feed, especially the exhaust, the rear of the tower, the gun, its ejector, aiming and observation devices), the T-64 tank can also be damaged at close range.
      Moreover, the PTRS is incomparable with the ATGM complex in terms of complexity, price, and availability.

      Hello ...
      "Cornet" (GRAU Index - 9K135, according to the classification of the US Defense Ministry and NATO: AT-14 Spriggan) - anti-tank missile system developed by the Tula Instrument Design Bureau. It was developed on the basis of the Reflex tank guided weapon system, while retaining its basic layout solutions. Designed to destroy tanks and other armored targets, including those equipped with modern means of dynamic protection. Modification of anti-tank systems "Cornet-D" can affect air targets.
      The main difference from the previous ATGM "Bassoon", "Competition" and "Metis" - in the guidance system. If the ATGM control of the latter was carried out by wire, then ATGM "Cornet" is guided by a laser beam.

      ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kornet_(PTRK)

      Especially good about radio interference belaybut further even steeper
      Up to 2000 meters (its maximum range)


      Hello again ...
      Maximum firing range:
      In the afternoon - 5500 м
      At night - 3500 м

    There is now a redivision going on, the Islamists are marching on a campaign, Israel recently helped them, destroyed the Syrian military facilities on the border with Iraq.
    One could write with the same success that they use a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
    In general, the states are now conducting a large-scale modernization / replacement of their weapons and do not rejoice so much in these successes.

    I agree with you, by and large, if you wish, you can get Javelin’s excellent ATGM, by the way, the Americans have gone ahead, we only have this product in the project, they have a cumulative part, a fragment, but expensive, but the principle shot and forgot when attacked in the upper sphere of the tower is expensive, any tank has vulnerabilities, the main thing is to use them skillfully.

    And why so much joy ISIS is fighting in Syria, and if they got the Cornets and burn Abrams, then soon the T-72 in Syria will soon begin to burn. Helicopters and airplanes will start knocking down the same if MANPADS are captured in Iraq. After Baghdad, ISIS will also remember Damascus, since ISIS is the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant."

    Hello ...
    I had a chance to serve a little in the ATGM battery and as far as I remember 9M113 is ... "Competition", or rather the missile itself in TPU, which is used like the 9M111 "Fagot", in particular from the 9P135 (9P135M) portable launcher
    And "Cornet" is 9K135

    Recent battles in Novorossia, in particular in Slavyansk, and in the Middle East confirm in practice that air assault, parachute and airborne units (formations, units), which are based on anti-tank weapons specifically ATGM, in the absence of heavy weapons, in modern conditions capable of restraining the offensive actions of the armored formations of a potential enemy for a long time and gaining time to transfer tank and motorized rifle formations of the Ground Forces to the threatened direction.

    This is a matter of comrades, in principle and in terms of the basic design of ATGMs in any ATGMs little has changed since the appearance of the tandem warhead. The electronic filling in the guidance has changed, yes, but not the missiles themselves. Actually the tandem is somehow cool .. how modern and cool the armored device is
