Popular Mechanics: The Buratino Russian flame-thrower system "can incinerate eight city blocks"

85
Popular Mechanics admired the live-fire shots of the Russian Buratino flamethrower system made during large-scale exercises of the troops of the Southern Military District in the Volgograd Region, noting that “this installed on tank a rocket launcher can incinerate eight city blocks. ”




The material states that the Buratino flamethrower system is a representative of thermobaric missiles of "air-fuel" weapons systems. The authors also talk about the principle of its operation: when a rocket hits a target, a cloud of combustible liquid is sprayed, after which it is ignited.

“The result is destructive and consists not only in the fact that the explosion turns out to be more powerful and with a longer shock wave of increased temperature and force, but also that all oxygen is absorbed in the immediate vicinity of the object. This creates a partial vacuum, "- quotes an excerpt from the article RIA "News".

According to the authors, the set of technical characteristics makes "it weapon horrifying when used against infantry or military men hiding in bunkers or caves, and a volley of 24 missiles completely covers the rectangle 200x400 meters, making it "hell on earth for those who are inside."



The development of the Buratino fire-throwing system was carried out by the specialists of the Omsk Transport Engineering Design Bureau. In 1980, it was adopted by the army of the USSR, and in 1988-1989. for the first time participated in hostilities in the territory of Afghanistan.

      The trick is not only in how Pinocchio behaves during the show, but also in the fact that after a real combat use in Iraq, Omsk has a line of buyers from the Middle East. They say that now it is one of the bestsellers.
      This is the real combat effectiveness. Let's hope that our BDKs are not only being transported by APCs to Syria, but also Pinocchio.

        For Arabs, the ideal weapon is big, it looks brutal and you don’t really need to aim!

            Once upon a time, a long time ago, the construction of cities was carried out in blocks, usually square with the side 100 m. We even ran the 100-meter in school. Now, of course, this is not so. 100x100 = 10000 sq.m. 200x400 = 80000 sq.m. From here and 8 quarters.

            This weapon in the Soviet Union was not created for the Arabs, but as the most effective weapon for the destruction of military force and equipment on the battlefield. Pinocchio was used both in Afghanistan and in Chechnya. And soon it will come in handy when the Igilov evil spirits climb on Russia.

        And neither camouflage, nor armor, nor bunker, nor bunker, nor the gap into which you hid will save you ...

        And I remembered here my favorite childhood movie "Apocalypse Today" or rather a phrase from the film
        -Do you feel that? Napalm, son. Nothing in the world smells like him. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. That smell ... victory.

        What the F-5E “Tiger” unit portraying the F-4 “Phantom” did in the film is one installation of “Pinocchio” for one of its volleys ...

      In the translated version of the cartoon into Lithuanian, Cheburashka was referred to as Kulverstukas.
      The Swedes recognized them as Drutten och Gena - that is, in Swedish they called Cheburashka Drutten, which in meaning is a rather successful adaptation of the Russian name: a word derived from the conversational Swede. drutta (to fall, stumble, plump, roll up).

      And the funniest thing about all this is that Pinocchio is armed with chemical troops))


      Because the staff originally developed them as a means of disinfecting the area, after a chemical / bact attack .. But .. it turned out .. that the result was a volumetric explosion weapon .. Also, the explosion should be delayed, allowing the mixture to penetrate the cracks and fortifications. then the explosion will be there .. The range of applications of the Solntsepeks has grown significantly .. EMNIP in Chechnya .. could not navigate the village .. bandits there have notably strengthened themselves in the ground. So that's when the TOS were brought there .. the assault was not needed .. The village only had to be rebuilt again)))

      In fact, these installations were not created to destroy the enemy’s fighting force, but to degass the area after the enemy used poisonous gases and bacteriological weapons. Therefore, this weapon is located in parts of the chemical defense. Well, and besides this is ammunition with liquid filler, quite poisonous. Possible leaks due to unfair storage and transportation. Chemical forces like no others can quickly clean up the infected area in this case. But, the observed combat effect from the use of Pinocchio is amazing.

      In the planned cities, the reference values ​​of quarter sizes are used in the form of a grid, in the article they took 100 × 100 m, respectively, eight were obtained.
      There are also 79 × 79 m and 120 × 120 m. Naturally, everything is exaggerated and not about Russia.
      I have a block of about 900x500 m. smile
      The standard quarter in Manhattan is about 80 × 270 m, the quarters in Edmonton (Canada) are 170 × 100 m. Neighborhoods in central Melbourne (Australia): 200 × 100 m.

      Tell me, but on an area of ​​100x800 meters, 8 quarters can fit? Walk around your city, estimate by eye.

      You have neighborhoods measuring about 1 km x 1 km and containing about 40 multi-storey residential buildings. So figure out what will happen to one such quarter, how many victims will be, compared with smaller quarters and a smaller population. You need to look deeper and think wider.

    Why go through that? I took Yandex cards and checked with a ruler. No, this cannot be in my city. If you can find a quarter of 100 by 100 meters, then this is rather a big exception. But that would be eight in a row .. And what kind of quarters are these, from a pair of closely standing high-rise buildings or what? Therefore, I am surprised at what was written in the article. Less then what?

      There is not a word about your city even in your profile. Since the locality is not known, the conversation is meaningless, citizen krikun. I know similar quarters, for example, the quarters built up by five-story houses on the former Nariman Ave in Baku. The quarter consists of 4 houses. Do not believe me, ask the Baku people. And in general, it is a very dense city building. In the Soviet years, only Czech trolleybuses could drive through the streets there. You don’t say a word about your village.

    Notice Popular Mechanics, an American popular science magazine. Hence the comparison "this tank mounted rocket launcher can incinerate eight city blocks."
    They are on their own and equal us. Well, we do not create weapons to combat residential cities. It was they who tested atomic bombs on peaceful Japanese cities and razed Dresden to scare
