Libyan radicals launch air-to-surface missiles X-29T from a ground installation


These missiles, equipped with a television guidance system, were supplied to the Libyan Air Force at the end of the 1980s to arm the Su-24MK bomber. X-29T came to the Islamists during the seizure of the Libyan air force base Gardabiya near the city of Sirt, where the 1124-I squadron of the Libyan Air Force had been deployed.

It is also noted that the radicals captured another Soviet-controlled aviation weapons, including X-29L and X-25 air-to-surface missiles and KAB-1500 adjustable bombs.

            If there were nuclear weapons, they probably would have thrown it from the catapult ...
            In general, use x-29 as an uncontrollable disc - it's tin! It’s the same as hammering nails with a microscope or carrying hay on a racing ferari.
            Correctly said - Barbarians!
            If there were brains, they would push this high-precision weapon to the same Assad and acquire normal weapons for the money raised - understandable and accessible to savages and in much more quantity ...

              If the Guided Missiles have passed all the terms of inspections and regulations and if they were ugly stored, then use them as NURSs their only purpose or disposal. We must pay tribute that the Militants, being in those combat conditions, still found a way to use these munitions and their value as highly accurate weapons and their PRICE in this case do not matter

      They launch towards the Zindan brigade near Tripoli - it's like a loyalist. Misurat guys are shooting, who have revolted in sauce - we made a revolution and flew past the authorities, and in Tripoli Zradniki dug in.

      Meanwhile, the Caliphate captured Benghazi and the surrounding area.

    A piece of rusty pipe of suitable diameter, a piece of vole and telephone TA-57 or another with an inductor and the installation for launching a NURS is ready. Fighters were so entertained 30 years ago.

    Libya will also have to bomb Libya by winter-spring, like Iraq. Only in contrast to Iraq is the situation there even worse.

    Benghazi and the surrounding area are controlled by Ansar al-Sharia, a kind of ISIS, a little less cruel. So far, without the pillars of shame of aki in Raqqa and the mass executions of dissenting prisoners. But they are not fighting for Libya, but for Alkinan (the caliphate of Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Eritrea). Now they are slowly advancing, obviously waiting for Haftar, Misurats and Zindans to kill each other.

    In fact, the dictator, the only loyalist who has real power on the bayonets of the remnants of the armies and the militia is General Haftar. But he is torn between Benghazi and Misurato Tripoli. And the durability, reliability of his army is low. Near Benghazi, only As-Saika stood to death, the rest fled.

    Libyan government - calls on everyone to peace and sits on suitcases, there is no real power.

    The Misuratans are the most combat-ready rebel squads, who are offended that they moved the trough away from them. Now they are storming Tripoli, an air base and several bases of the battalion level have already been captured in the suburbs.

    Zindan Brigade - Loyalists who want to keep the trough at home and are at war with the Misurats.

    Here is such Makhnovism there, and in the depths of the country from the Bedouins to just the Bandits who privatized whoever the tower and who and the bulk terminal (a recent story with oil smuggling by tankers when US Marines caught a tanker filled with cache).

      Well, here you have free microscopes and there is an urgent need to hammer in nails, a hammer and other suitable objects except a microscope!

      These Misurat missiles were taken away at the base, there are no flying planes there, only different missiles and 30mm shells. That’s what they put into business as they can.

      And yes, this missile, if it is normal to aim (in degrees, start up uncontrollably) at a short range, in terms of building it will be especially effective than any improvised flying cans. There 116 kg of effective explosives and warhead itself is more than 300kg.

    One thing can be said - the African land is rich in talents. In the absence of the Queen, it is possible and the janitor ... Not in vain we taught them. On the other hand, what should they do in the desert, after being fully connected to European democracy and the welfare received from a native of Africa?

    I doubt that the Kh-29T (although in the first photo it looks like the Kh-29T, on the lower one in the package with LGSN), being in Syria on a business trip on the S-22M4 (an export version of the Su-17M4), I found it lacking IT- 23 and the corresponding blocks of the tele-guidance system and I doubt that they were supplied with TGSN to Libya (export was always slightly "cut off"), without which launching from a telescopic head is impossible. As far as I remember, our use with the TGSN was limited in peacetime and in the 1st BC we had an X-29L. So, as one character said, I am tormented by vague doubts. Now I don’t remember exactly (more than 20 years have passed since college , and hit by a PNKashnik, not a gunsmith)), the engine start contacts are brought out separately, and everything else is through the connector, in addition, the rocket is launched from the AKU (first, with the help of pushers, the engine is pushed off the AKU, then the engine is triggered with a delay). starting and wiring the connector so that it does not fly like a blank, and they did not have such specialists even during the USSR (and I was convinced myself and my head of the group was in Libya in the 80s, he told me)
