Tests of the Pine air defense missile system will be completed in October

33
The fire tests of the Sosna short-range air defense missile system must be completed before the end of the year, Vladimir Slobodchikov, deputy general director of the NPO High-Precision Complexes, told the press. "The final stage of fire tests will take place in October," the agency quotes him. Russian weapons.



According to Slobodchikov, the new complex "uses two-stage guided missiles" Sosna-R ", which are equipped with sea complexes" Palma "." The missiles "are equipped with two combat units with a total weight of 7 kg and a laser non-contact-contact fuse." Their range is 1-10 km.

He explained that “the fragmentation-rod warhead is intended for a non-contact blasting, the armor-piercing-fragmentation triggered works in a direct collision with a target.” And he added that "at the launch site, a radio command missile guidance is carried out, after which it is guided by a laser beam."

“The fighting machine with the Pine complex is equipped with 12 rockets, reloading takes 12 minutes. The optical fire control system provides "Sosne" with a high survivability on the battlefield and an increased resistance to interference, ”the manager said. In addition, the complex includes a control machine, which is able to control starts from several installations.

Slobodchikov did not delve into the technical specifications and answered the question about the target detection range, saying that "it is sufficient to destroy the enemy at a distance of 10 km, while the independent optical sensor Sosny allows you to track simultaneously to 50 targets."

The interviewee noted that the complex is installed on a multi-purpose light-armored tractor MT-LB. It can also be installed on any other machines in this class.

Earlier, Vladimir Slobodchikov said that the government of India had refused to jointly develop an air defense system with Ukraine in favor of the Russian Sosny. Therefore, after the completion of the fire tests, their production for the Indian armed forces will begin (in 2015). It is reported that India abandoned the contract with Ukraine in connection with the military conflict in the Donbas.

Therefore, after the completion of the fire tests, their production for the Indian armed forces will begin (in 2015). It is reported that India abandoned the contract with Ukraine in connection with the military conflict in the Donbas.

    Well, this (refusal to cooperate with Ukraine) is understandable ... The most interesting thing is that the Indians have nothing to choose from. Some time ago, the Indians were seized with an itch to do everything of their own - planes, engines for them, missiles, etc. - usually turn out badly, well, or nothing at all. SAM did not bypass this itch - the Indians began to modernize (ie worsen) our "Wasp", called it "Trishul" - Trident / Trident. They wanted to get a shipborne and land (on the BMP-1 chassis) air defense system. We spent money, time, then announced that these were technological samples and ... threw this business! True, it should be noted that they broke our "Cube", called "Akash" and adopted it - but there is no ship version of the complex.




    When the time came to take the next step, the Indians looked closely at our "Daggers", but chose the Israeli "Barak" - through corruption scandals, delays, etc., but chose ... And got themselves a bunch of problems: under the terms of the agreement, the supply of shipborne air defense systems of long range LR-SAM were to be delivered to the Indian Navy by 2012, and the MR-SAM medium-range air defense systems were to enter service with the Indian Air Force by 2017. However, the delivery times of both systems are completely behind schedule, and there is no sign of the start of deliveries in the near future. The Indian Air Force planned to replace the outdated Soviet S-125 "Pechora" air defense systems with them. But no one knows for sure how long the MR-SAM will have to wait, and whether the delivery will take place at all.

    And due to the lack of naval air defense systems, the Indians cannot put into operation three of their latest destroyers of the 15A project. So the first of them Kolkata adopted in the fleet in the summer was supposed to be adopted in 2010 year.
    The Chinese make it simpler and more efficient - they copy, master the series, and then they pull the hen out later.

    I have not yet seen anything better than the Tor air defense system and its modifications for close air defense. All these mounted turrets with the need to control the position of the missile launcher in azimuth and elevation "anachrenism" of the purest water. These turrets are good for cannon air defense systems, but not for missile ones. Although the desire of the manufacturers of these turrets is understandable. You replicate the backlog mastered by production and get additional. "grandmother", especially without straining. The trend, however

        The advantages of the TOR air defense system include its multi-channel nature, i.e. the ability to shell almost simultaneously air targets located at different azimuths and elevation angles without spending time on transferring missiles to different azimuths and pointing them at elevation angles. In addition, the absence of bulky systems of a power synchronous servo drive of a missile launcher in azimuth and elevation makes it possible to significantly increase the reliability of a given air defense system and use the available volumes of the air defense system’s transport base more rationally, of course, it is understood that the characteristics of the missile defense system of a torus and a missile system of similar air defense systems are not very different

      With regard to air defense systems - completely true. But
      "The fragmentation-rod warhead is designed for non-contact detonation, the armor-piercing-fragmentation warhead is triggered by a direct impact with the target."

      the second warhead suggests the multipurpose nature of the missile system. And the vertical launch of anti-tank missiles seems to be exotic for now ...
      Or I'm wrong?

        I believe that the second warhead is designed primarily to combat armored air targets such as turntables and attack aircraft. This tank is unlikely to be used against tanks. Although if the exit will not shoot at them. Possibly one another time to burn before it is finished.
        And one more weak nesto of this air defense system. The lack of all-round surveillance tools, and the proper target allocation and target designation for operators in autonomous mode of operation, which may become the only one in a real combat situation, because there is no reason to hope for long-term combat stability of distributed air defense control systems in case of enemy’s massive use of electronic warfare systems. In the TOR, this is all more or less in order.
        On the vertical launch of ATGM. So far, this is exotic, although ATGMs providing the fundamental possibility of such a launch are already available (the same SPIKE). Another thing is why this complex ATGM? After all, a "star raid" of tanks from all directions is a situation, although possible, but very rare, but for air attack weapons it is quite normal and even preferable tactics. P

    Most likely "Sosna" will become an "export" complex. At least for now. Moreover, for the "Indian" contract there is a rather intense competition between NPO High-Precision Complexes and OJSC Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol with its Tor-M2KM (9K331MKM). So at MAKS-2013 Izhevsk residents presented an autonomous combat module 9A331MK -1 and anti-aircraft missile module 9M334 with four 9M9331 anti-aircraft guided missiles on the chassis of an Indian TATA vehicle, i.e. with an eye on the Indians.

    And if we take into account the failure of the Indians with the Israeli air defense system "Barak", then the chances of "Thor" are rather favorable.

    In turn, on the side of the NPO High-Precision Complexes, the fact that India at one time actively purchased Strela-10 (250 units for 2012)
    The Military Balance 2012. - P. 244.

    In addition to the fact that the "Sosna" will become an "export" air defense missile system, it says that in December 2010, the Strela-10M3 self-propelled anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) with modernized anti-aircraft missiles entered service in the air defense units (air defense) - airborne troops (airborne forces).

    I first read about this air defense system ten years ago. And they also wrote that it was "the newest". By the way! It was a magazine dedicated to Soviet and Russian air defense systems. And Sosna was positioned there as a rival of Pantsir and the successor of Strela.

    The fact is that Pine has a completely passive detection system, unlike Thor. Therefore, she is not afraid of missile suppression pro. Tor and Pine are still different complexes and each has its pros and cons.

    Naturally, this complex will not be able to replace TOR. Judging by the layout of the rocket, this is a child of the Tunguska. Those. imprisoned against helicopters and drones, possibly cruise missiles. But against actively maneuvering attack aircraft, it is not very effective. The positive thing is multichannelism, which was not the case for Wasps and the old Strela. I think it would be more reasonable to use new missiles for the modernization of the Tunguska, and not in the form of a separate UZKOSPECIALIZED complex. I hope so. And just Pine will be exported.
    In the meantime, the best short-range complex remains the TOP.
