Self-propelled anti-tank missile system 9P162 "Cornet-T"

28
At the beginning of last week, tank biathlon competitions started at the Alabino training ground. 4 and 5 August on the same site was an exhibition of the latest models of weapons and military equipment, developed by domestic designers. At the exhibition site were presented several samples of equipment for various purposes, including the latest self-propelled anti-tank missile system, which is a further development of the development of the Cornet family.

According to the publication "Vestnik Mordovii", during the exhibition the first display of the latest combat vehicle 9P163-2, armed with anti-tank missiles, took place. It is alleged that an armored vehicle based on the BMP-3 chassis is capable of destroying any modern Tanks and enemy combat vehicles.

It should be noted that an error has crept into the publication of the “Messenger of Mordovia”. As follows from freely available data, the GRAU 9P163-2 index was assigned to the Quartet launcher, designed to use Cornet missiles. This launcher allows up to four guided missiles to be transported in ready-to-use form and can be mounted on different chassis. However, the Quartet installation is not directly related to the combat vehicle shown in Alabino. As far as is known, the self-propelled anti-tank complex based on the BMP-3 is called 9P162 "Cornet-T".

The 9P162 armored vehicle is a BMP-3 with a dismantled combat module and an installed set of special equipment designed to use guided missiles. In the fighting compartment of the machine is installed automatic loader and two lifting launchers. Before firing, launchers with transport-launch containers (TPC) of Kornet missiles mounted on them are raised to a vertical position, after which coarse aiming at the target is carried out. The design of launchers allows horizontal guidance in any direction. Vertical guidance is limited to a sector from -15 ° to + 60 ° from the horizontal plane.

Ammunition of the Cornet-T combat vehicle consists of 16 guided missiles in the TPC. 12 missiles are located on the two drums of automatic loaders, another 4 are placed in the piling and can be placed on the launcher manually. Before the shot, the launcher captures the container with the rocket from the cradle and rises to the vertical position. After the launch of the missile, the TPK is reset and the launcher is lowered to capture the new container. By the principle of operation, the automatic charging of the 9P162 complex is similar to the systems used on the 9P149 “Sturm-S” combat vehicle. The difference lies in the size and capacity of the drum, as well as in the division of ammunition into two parts for use with two launchers.

The 9P162 combat vehicle is built on the BMP-3 chassis, which allows it to operate in the same combat formations with motorized rifle and tank units, and also to some extent facilitates operation and maintenance. With a combat mass of less than 18 tons, the Kornet-T vehicle is capable of driving on a highway at speeds up to 70 km / h. Water barriers are overcome by swimming at speeds up to 10 km / h, for which the machine is equipped with a jet propulsion unit. The body of the machine is made of aluminum alloys with steel reinforcement elements that protects the crew and units from small arms bullets weapons and shell fragments.

Self-propelled complex 9P162 "Cornet-T" is able to use all the existing missiles of the 9М133 family. Depending on the situation, the crew of the complex may use a rocket with a tandem shaped cumulative (9М133 and 9М133-1) or thermobaric (9М133Ф and 9М133Ф-1) warhead. Missiles with a cumulative warhead are capable of penetrating up to 1200 mm of homogeneous armor for hinged dynamic defense. The thermobaric warhead of the 9M133F and 9M133F-1 missiles has a power equivalent to 152-mm artillery shells or 10 kg of trotyl.

Missiles with different warheads have the same powerplant, which allows them to fly to a distance of 5,5 km. When using rockets at night, the maximum launch range is reduced to 3-3,5 km due to the limitations imposed by the sighting equipment. For guidance missiles used semi-automatic laser system. The operator of the complex keeps a mark on the target, and the automation takes over all the basic operations to guide the missile. Automation directs the laser beam to the target and the onboard control system keeps the rocket in the beam.

Self-propelled anti-tank complex 9P162 receives a block of sighting equipment mounted on the roof of the hull and protected by an armor cover. At the workplace of the gunner-operator a set of equipment is installed to control the missile complex. All basic operations in preparation for firing and launching rockets are carried out using the available control panels.

At the end of last year, there were reports that the self-propelled anti-tank missile system 9P162 "Cornet-T" began to be supplied to the troops. This technique complements the existing combat vehicles with anti-tank missiles, such as “Sturm-S”, “Chrysanthemum”, etc.

    A simple question - what is more effective than Chrysanthemum or Cornet-T? This is to why two types of such systems? One is enough for the eyes. Or again, the lobby of different manufacturers. Then the story with the T-64, T-72 and T-80 tanks is repeated, the story with already a dozen types of lightly armored vehicles (Tiger, KAMAZ and others).
    After all, so far no one has given a clear and precise answer, why the army needs two Ka-52 and Mi-28 helicopters ??? What, grandmother sawing is more profitable than having one type of a certain technique? This is the whole system of modern military-industrial complex, the army, and indeed the country in general.

      More effective "Chrysanthemum". However, "Cornet" is more versatile. Its missiles, in contrast to the "Khrysanthem" missiles, can be placed on armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles. So this decision is fully justified.

      At the moment, the anti-tank divisions of motorized rifle brigades have two batteries with ancient MT-12s and one "Shturm-S". It makes sense to replace all of them with "Cornet-T". And much more expensive "Chrysanthemums-S" to be put into service in the anti-tank battalions art. brigades.

                D-30 or MSTA-B are much better suited, because they are more universal.
                And to combat armored vehicles, it is better that what you can carry on yourself, more covertly placed.
                Or install on any suitable transport (jeep, pickup, light truck). For guerrilla warfare, this is most appropriate and more reasonable.

                Now let's compare.
                ATGM can be carried by calculation or installed on any suitable vehicle (motorcycle (Ural, Dnepr type), jeep, pickup, Gazelle type vehicle with onboard platform, etc., etc.).








                And the PT gun can be moved to the other angry position only with the tractor.


                Next, the calculation of anti-tank systems 2-3 people. Calculation of PT guns of MT-12 type 6-7 people + tractor with driver (MT-LB or army heavy truck)

                Saving resources, both logistical and human, is evident.

                Deployment and coagulation times are also in favor of anti-tank systems.
                Time to open fire is also in favor of anti-tank systems.

                If one of the ATGM calculation numbers is wounded or killed, one number can handle the ATGM.
                If one or more gun crew numbers are wounded or killed, you can't shoot MT-12 at one, it's not a magpie or a ZIS-3.

                  I’ll add to the above. To prepare a good gunner for a PT gun, it takes from 3 to 6 months.
                  In order to prepare the ATGM operator, in order for him to be able to fight, it is necessary from 2 weeks to 1,5 months. The difference is also obvious.

                    Stupidity you said dear. That the ATGM operator, that the ATGM gunner prepares for the same time, but for the first one MUST need a SIMULATOR, otherwise there will be no special sense, or it will result in a big "pretty penny", and for training the ATGM gunner, you can use the "insert barrel" ... which is MUCH cheaper ...

                      They are also cheap. And their use is cheaper even than the use of a loose stem.

                      It's really easy to train a VET gunner. It is difficult to train a gun commander. Who must accurately assess the range and lead when shooting at a moving target, having only simple binoculars in his hands. And this can not be achieved either with simulators or with an insert. Only real shooting "practice"

                      But the practice in Novorossia says something else, according to the accelerated program, ATGM operators were trained, which very effectively hit the APU armored vehicles. And somehow they did without simulators, only fieldwork.
                      Even ATGM "Bumblebee" was mastered in a short time by people without education in the Middle East (Arab-Israeli wars in the 60-70s of the 20th century). And "Bumblebee" is much more difficult to direct in flight than "Cornet", "Metis" or "Fagot".

                    Why? An ATGM operator must be trained on a special simulator, otherwise he will simply learn on the battlefield, and here a lot depends on the person, from what time he starts to correctly guide the missile ... How many times have I seen inexperienced gunners miss the mark at the last moment when the missile goes off the trajectory of exceeding and falls a little. And the MT gunner can and use the "insert barrel" to teach, and even if you have to spend shells for this, then they are several times cheaper than ATGM missiles ...
                    In any case, in order to make a shot with a TUS (tank guided projectile), the gunners are chased for a long time on the simulator, and after he shoots with a regular artillery shot from a gun ... Since the price of ammunition is different at times

              Of the 2526 MT-12s in the possession of the RF Armed Forces, 2000 are in storage. For a long time I have been observing an interesting phenomenon - people like you, apparently, think that the state budget is unlimited, and weapons appear in unlimited quantities at the wave of a magic wand. According to Wikipedia, the Russian army is armed with only "more than 10 complexes" 9K123 "Chrysanthemum". This figure is most likely underestimated, but we can definitely say that the saturation of SV with these complexes is far from what is desired. "Cornets", according to the same source, only 750 complexes (the data is somewhat outdated, but the situation is unlikely to have radically changed in 5 years). I didn’t find any data about 9P149 “Sturm-S”, but there are hardly more of them than “Cornets”. So it turns out that the number of ATGMs in the Russian Army, if sufficient, is only for peacetime conditions. In addition, there are many ways to protect against cumulative funds. So you have to keep the MT-12 in storage. For BMP / armored personnel carriers ("Namers" are not counted, only one country has them and in very small quantities) this gun can work even very well. So it's too early for them to recycle.

And most importantly - they are different in price, i.e. in terms of price / quality. And what correlation will better correspond to future clashes - no one knows.
