ZRK RBS 70NG - universal weapon



The Swedish company Saab presented the next modification of the compact anti-aircraft missile system RBS 70NG. The modified anti-aircraft system is equipped with a new, automated thermal imaging sighting system, which allows to destroy targets with increased accuracy, regardless of the time of day and in any weather conditions. In addition, the new system has the ability to effectively defeat a wide range of airborne and ground targets: armored vehicles, infantry, various fortifications, cruise missiles, airplanes, helicopters, as well as ships.

A key feature of the RBS 70NG is a laser guidance system that is resistant to various interferences. Unlike the existing portable anti-aircraft missile systems, the RBS 70NG SAM system is aimed at the target chosen for destruction not with a conventional thermal targeting head, but with the use of a low-power laser beam that effectively closes the target at the set aiming complex. In this case, the laser is turned on only after the launch of the rocket, this feature practically does not leave a period of time to conduct a defensive maneuver. The imager allows you to secretly detect and recognize selected targets at a great distance - this positively distinguishes it from existing MANPADS requiring direct visual detection by eyes. At the same time, the RBS 70NG sighting system makes it possible to detect and track targets in automatic mode, which reduces the reaction time and increases the likelihood of a direct hit on the target for the entire length of the missile’s flight.

According to statistics collected by the Swedish company Bofors, the 1468 missiles launched by the RBS 70 90% missile system hit the selected targets. Installing a new sighting system will further raise the bar for shooting accuracy, which ultimately will make the RBS 70NG a real record holder in shooting accuracy among portable air defense systems.



A kind of record for a portable complex weighing 87 kg (machine, rocket and sight) is also the effective range of interception of the target 8 km, the height of the interception of the air target - 5 km. For comparison, the Strela-10 complex produced by Russia on a tracked chassis has an effective firing range of 5 km, interception height of 3 km, and ZRPK Tunguska - 8 and 3,5 km, respectively.

Complexes like RBS 70NG are in fact a new type. weapons. The system is able to translate into a combat position in 30 seconds, the time required for recharging, no more than 7 seconds, is resistant to various interferences and can destroy almost any kind of targets. Such qualities are inherent in the current trend of development of compact universal anti-aircraft missile weapons with enhanced capabilities for reconnaissance, surveillance and firing range, which completely excludes the possibility of calling back fire from motorized rifle subunits: tank guns, automatic infantry guns and mortars.

    Serious weapons if they don’t lie. Everything is beautiful, but how portable is it if it weighs under 90 kg, who will wear it with Lungrem and Van Damme?

      Well, the weight does not play such a big role since the movement of the MANPADS will probably be carried out by a calculation of 2-3 people. and the use of l / armored vehicles

        Ivan, if they were going to carry him, they would write a wagon, otherwise the wearable is an advertisement, in WWII, 17 kg of the ATGM were carried by two, and this four was a fool?

      And the author is disingenuous, he cited data on Strela and Tunguska, but not a word about the Shell, and this crap did not stand next to him, moreover, it seems to be useless against the President

        yeah, it still needed Buk and S-300. The author compared with similar missiles. Although the Tunguska-M1 fires missiles at 10 km, unlike the old versions

    a serious device, but about "arrow 10" for me personally it’s not clear why it was created and what it protects from

    We have its best analogue, this is ATGM Cornet-EM (or ED).
    The maximum range of 10 km, destroys tanks, helicopters and subsonic attack aircraft, bombers (in the opposite courses it may be supersonic). In addition, it is lighter and easier to maintain. There is an automatic laser guidance system + thermal imager.
