Guided mortar mine IAI Fireball (Israel)

51
Artillery guns using conventional unguided projectiles have relatively low accuracy, and therefore can only be used to attack area targets. To improve the accuracy of artillery firing in recent decades, guided projectiles have been created in different countries that can be aimed at a specific target. However, such ammunition is still available only to the calculations of guns and howitzers. Mortar gunners still have to use unguided mines, which by definition cannot hit a point target without complicated and long-term fire.

Guided mortar mine IAI Fireball (Israel)


At the beginning of the two thousandth, the Israeli company Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) began the development of specialized mortar ammunition, equipped with a guidance system. It was assumed that the use of a number of developments that have already been tested in other projects, will create a high-precision ammunition suitable for attacking small targets using existing mortars. The new project is called Fireball ("Fireball").

The result of the new project was the original ammunition, which even outwardly seriously differs from the existing mortar bombs. The project used several interesting ideas that had not previously been used in such developments, which affected its appearance. In particular, IAI experts have proposed to increase not only the accuracy of the hit, but also the range of a new mine. According to their idea, the Fireball mine should not only fall, but also, if necessary, plan for the goal. This method of flight promised a noticeable increase in the firing range, as well as some other advantages over existing mines.

The IAI Fireball mortar is remotely similar to other ammunition for mortars only in the transport position. In flight, it spreads its wings and stabilizers, making it look like a small-sized guided bomb. WITH aviation Ammunition brings a new mine not only in appearance, but also in some used equipment.

Mina Fireball received a complex case with several parts. At the head of the mine, on the fairing, there is a small transparent area that provides the laser guidance system. The middle cylindrical part of the body has slots to accommodate folding X-shaped wings, rudders. The tail part of the body has the shape of a truncated body and goes into a cylindrical shank with holes. On the bottom of the shank there is a folding stabilizer with six vanes. In the transport position, the wings and the stabilizer are folded in the crevices of the body and along the shank, respectively. Immediately after leaving the mortar barrel, the ammunition lays out all the planes and uses them in flight towards the target.

According to official data, there is a laser guidance system receiver, a GPS satellite navigation system receiver and a set of flight control equipment in the mine body. The latter consists of a rechargeable battery, a gyroscope, a computer controller, a system for introducing commands before firing, and a rudder drive. The warhead is located in the tail section of the hull. In a cylindrical shank placed propellant charge.

The IAI Fireball controlled mine has a maximum diameter of 119,5 mm, which makes it possible to use it for firing from smooth-bore and rifled mortars of the 120 caliber and 121 mm. For example, the mine can be used with Israeli-made Soltam K120 6-mm mortar. The total length of the ammunition - 895 mm. In the form of a mine ready for a shot, 14,7 kg weighs. Thus, having a significantly higher performance, the new Israeli mine is almost not different in weight and size from other ammunition for mortars.

The basic version of the mine "Fireball" is equipped with a high-explosive fragmentation warhead weighing 3 kg. It is noteworthy that one of the main NATO NATO 120-mm M934 has a charge weighing 6,6 pounds (slightly less than 3 kg). Thus, the existing ammunition and the new mine IAI Fireball have about the same power, but the latter has a great advantage in the form of guidance systems that provide higher accuracy of fire. IAI offered customers mines with an armor-piercing cumulative warhead to destroy armored vehicles and penetrate to destroy buildings and fortifications.

The proposed combined guidance system should provide greater flexibility in the use of mines. So, when firing at stationary objects, guidance with the help of satellite navigation can be used, and a laser guidance system is proposed for firing at mobile targets. In the first case, the calculation of the mortar must enter the fireball coordinates of the target into the memory of the mines. When using laser guidance, a shot is made according to a technique similar to shooting with an unguided mine, and the scouts are responsible for aiming at the target, highlighting it with a laser.

It is alleged that the accuracy of the mine Fireball surpasses all existing mortar ammunition. The declared circular deviation does not exceed the 1 meter. This means that for the destruction of most targets (live force, light equipment or non-reinforced structures), only one or two minutes with an 3-kg combat unit is sufficient.

According to the company-developer, the use of control systems has allowed to give a new mine some interesting opportunities. Given the possible use of mines in urban environments, in order to reduce collateral damage, IAI Fireball munitions have a specific flight path. After climbing to a certain height using a propellant charge, the mine begins to plan and “dives” down only in the immediate vicinity of the target. Such a flight path should reduce the likelihood of a mine entering a building that is on its way to the target.



The possibility of using rudders and stabilizers as planes for flight made it possible to significantly increase the firing range. It is alleged that the mine "Fireball" is capable of hitting targets at distances up to 15 kilometers. Thus, the range of 120-mm mortar with guided ammunition of the Israeli development is approximately doubled compared to a similar system, firing conventional mines without a control system.

According to the official website of the company Israel Aerospace Industries, the project Fireball is in the process of active work, and the ammunition has already passed a full cycle of field tests. Exact information about the current state of the project is not available. According to some reports, IAI Fireball mines became the subject of an order of the Israeli armed forces, but the details of this deal are unknown. There is also no information about the interest shown by potential customers from foreign countries.

Available information about a guided mortar mine IAI Fireball suggests its high commercial potential. Such ammunition, which has an advantage both in range and in accuracy of firing, is of great interest to many armies of the world, armed with mortars of caliber 120 or 121 mm. The existing advantages over unmanaged mines in a number of situations can completely offset the only noticeable disadvantage of the “Fireball” - its considerable cost. However, the widespread use of Fireball mines is not known. Probably, the ratio of cost and effectiveness of this ammunition suits not all potential customers, which was the reason for the absence of large orders for delivery.

          Managed ammunition at the battalion level - is that bad? In addition, in the mountains or in settlements, accuracy is often critical.

          On the plain, a mistake in a range of 10 meters is nonsense. The target will be hit. But if the thing happens in the mountains, then on a steep slope an error in a range of 10 meters can lead to the fact that the target will get off with a slight fright. The same is true in settlements.

          Take the usual situation in Israel: Urban battles when enemy forces are dangerously close to their own infantry. However, artillery support is required.

          Smart ammunition in this form allows you to work on the enemy without hitting your own forces.

          Or there is a chance to hook peaceful buildings that immediately for obvious reasons will cause a buzz from human rights defenders. Again, clever ammunition and again it will hit exactly where you need it.

      I think no one will store such tsatskis, at least on the scale of the mobility reserve. This is a tool for targeted operations (urban battles, sweeps of settlements), of which mulienne and a little more are carried out in the Middle East. And with the current prices of electronics and actuators, the idea not only has the right to life, it just gets into your eyes.

    It has no analogues in the world (s) fellow

    But what about the British "Merlin", the Swedish "Strix", the German "Bussard", the Soviet-Russian "Brave", "Gran", "Kitolov"? Are they all inaccurate?


    Well, in general, of course, a cool thing. Only personally, I would make a semi-active laser seeker optionally installed, as on the Italian-German projectile of the Vulcan family

    It is very interesting how they hang extra on it. charges-disclosed stabilizers clearly interfere with them.

                      And let's see the process.



                      That is, ground-based satellite communications stations are one of two vital elements necessary for the normal operation of the entire GPS system.
                      If they are disabled or destroyed, then the satellites will lose their orientation and will not be able to transmit an accurate signal to Earth. They are dependent on the operation of ground stations and radio communication between satellites and stations is ongoing. And without communication with the stations, the satellites will not only work less accurately, but will generally give out balcony. In addition, the failure of ground stations can cause the satellite to leave the working orbit, which is fraught with its fall or loss of connection with it forever.

                        How? If between them and the stations should be a continuous exchange of data. It is necessary for the satellites to keep a working orbit. That’s all the salt.
                        The accuracy of the communication directly depends on this. It is obvious.
                        And if the satellite starts to give an error in the range of +/- kilometer, then such data cannot be used for the use of high-precision weapons.
                        You are an artilleryman and who better than you should know and understand this.

                        Salt is not in "keeping a working orbit." Control stations do not correct the parameters of the satellite orbit, but introduce corrections into the satellite signal

                        There are several types of them, these ground stations, as far as I can understand. Stations of one type, for example, work simply as beacons, of another type as beacons and automated points to support telemetry of devices, the third of a combined type with the ability to control in "manual mode", etc., etc.

                        Therefore, for military purposes, it is best to have those systems in service that will work autonomously and we have them.
                        In this our engineers turned out to be more far-sighted, proceeding from the proverb "a bird is better in hand than a pie in the sky."

                        The fact that the GPS system will work receiving signals only from user receivers is very doubtful, because. their signal strength is insufficient for this.
                        If we compare the signal strength of the ground station and the GPS receiver of a car navigator, the results of the comparison will be in no way in favor of the latter.
                        In addition, household equipment, into which our "probable friends" everywhere stuck GPS receivers and shoved us with a sticker "made for the CIS countries" is easily blocked by electronic warfare equipment. And truncated, "grandmother has arrived."

                        And you are aware that our managed art. Ammunition is also a bunch of restrictions?

                        First, communication. It should be just great. Otherwise, the signal from the weapon interface unit will not give a command to turn on the target illumination. And the projectile will fly into milk

                        Secondly, the weather. Low cloud cover and guided ammunition cannot be used.

                        Thirdly, the need for a bulky rangefinder-target designator with high energy consumption. Which also emits, and therefore not only can cause the activation of optoelectronic suppression systems, but also unmasks itself.

                        Fourth, the need for the backlight to illuminate the target during a shot. With ANN / ZhPS systems, a battery can simultaneously hit as many targets as there are guns. And in the variant with a semi-active laser seeker, how many working LCDs are aimed at the target.

                        But specifically on the "Edge", I revised the video on the application and in this complex the LCD will turn on when approaching the target. Those. briefly. In such a short time that it works, it is not so easy to find it.
                        Today, the LCD can be put on a UAV or on a robot with a tracked / wheeled chassis so that people do not risk it.
                        Full autonomy of the "Malachite" automated control system is, in my opinion, more preferable than dependence on the satellite system.

                        Well, the interface box is working. He transmits the command "shot" to the LCD, which counts the flight time and turns on. when the projectile is over the target. But this requires a stable connection. No connection, no command.

                        I think that they are either working on this, or have already worked. ASUO "Malachite" itself is no longer a novelty, more than 10 years have passed. New opportunities have emerged with the development of technology.
                        Also, for sure, in the AMS "Malachite", so to speak, in the basic version, they provided for the need for reliable work in conditions of intensive countermeasures from the enemy's electronic warfare.
                        After all, it is worth remembering who is the developer of the entire system. In KBP, too, no kettles work.

              ZhPS is damp / clogged with interference is difficult (especially in combat mode), the signal is very simple and very powerful. You can make the RPS receiver show full nonsense. I don’t know how to do this, but during a Georgian company, a civil navigator gave an error of + - kilometer.

                These projectiles are drummed into attempts to "turn down" the signal. They compare the received data with the data from the ANN, and in the event of a sudden large error, they simply ignore them.

                Is it reliable? This is ZHPS if you are friends with the "light elves" then yes, but if not. And it seems they have just started launching new satellites with increased noise immunity. Remember how the Iranians planted a super duper drone of the light elves, they say they just jammed the zhps and that's it

                    they later said that they copied it, showed some kind of model made of plastic that clowns don't fly, then they made some kind of their own super fighter which also turned out to be a model and never flew, and experts also measured the size of the lantern and found out that it even the dwarf does not fit, in short, all these miracles of the Iranian clowns' novelty are purely window dressing from the fear that Israel will fuck

      The Israelis have INS / ZhPS systems that are screwed into conventional ammunition in place of a standard fuse. Relatively cheap, but the devil is in the details - such ammunition requires more accurate pre-targeting. Small control surfaces of such systems may not "pick" large deflections. We have the same problems with corrected shells and mines. Unlike guided ones, they are cheaper, but sometimes they even require zeroing in with conventional shells / mines.

      But specifically for this controlled mine, there is an Italian-German version. The guided projectile initially has an inertial control module with correction on the LPS. Depending on the firing task before the shot, the standard fuse is replaced by a radio fuse to provide air blasting, a laser semi-active seeker if there is a backlight in the target area, passive infrared seeker if the fire is fired on armored vehicles.
      This solution makes the ammunition more versatile and at the same time slightly reduces its cost.

    A deviation of 1 meter, even with armored vehicles, can guarantee 100 percent destruction.
