Project of anti-radar missile X-58USHKE (TP)

The Tactical Missile Weapons Corporation (KTRV) continues to modernize the arsenals of the national Air Force. At the same time, the renewal of the product range is carried out both by creating completely new systems and by upgrading existing ones. At the recent exhibition MAKS-2015, the corporation introduced a new tactical guided missile X-58USHKE (TP), which differs from its predecessors in some technical features and combat capabilities.


A new product X-58USHKE (TP) was developed in the GosMKB "Raduga" them. AND I. Bereznyak is another guided rocket of the X-58 family, and is also a direct development of the already well-known project X-XNUMHUSHKE. By preserving some of the existing features and introducing new solutions, it was possible to significantly increase the combat effectiveness of the new weapons. With the help of an updated guidance system, the X-58USHKE (TP) missile can be used not only to attack enemy radar stations, like previous members of the family, but also to destroy other ground targets.



Being a further development of the X-XNUMHUSHKE rocket, the new X-58USHKE (TP) product retained its main features. This is a general layout, size and weight, as well as the design of the wings and tail. Recall that the X-XNUMHUSHKE project was developed taking into account the transportation of missiles both on the external sling and in the internal cargo compartments of promising aircraft. For this reason, this rocket received a folding plane, allowing to reduce the cross-section in the transport position.

The installation of new equipment did not have a noticeable effect on the overall design of the upgraded rocket. It, like the base X-58USHKE, has a cylindrical body of large elongation with a lively head fairing. In the middle part of the body, X-shaped wings are mounted, in the tail - steering wheels of similar design. Trapezoid planes consist of two parts and can be folded to reduce the width of the rocket. In this case, the console upper rudders and wings are lowered sideways, and the lower fold down under the body and overlap each other. Two pairs of full turn steering wheels are used to control the flight.

The X-58USHKE (TP) missile is longer than 4 m and the case diameter is 0,38 m. The wingspan of the spread wings is 0,8 m. With a launch weight of about 650 kg, the product carries a high-explosive fragmentation unit weighing about 150 kg.

The folding wings of the Kh-58UShKE and Kh-58UShKE (TP) missiles can significantly reduce the volume occupied by them. Due to this design feature, such weapons can be transported both on the external load and in the internal compartments of promising aircraft. For transportation and launch of missiles can be used aviation AKU-58 ejection devices for external suspension and internal devices UVKU-50.

The X-XNUMHUSHKE basic rocket is equipped with a solid-fuel engine, which provides acceleration up to a maximum speed of 58 km / h. The maximum flight range is 4200 km. Probably, the upgraded version of the X-245USHKE (TP) rocket has similar flight data and can hit targets within the same radius.

The product X-58USHKE is equipped with a combined guidance system with an inertial strap-free navigation system and a wide-range passive radar homing head. According to the developer, such equipment allows this rocket to hit the target (a circle with a diameter of 20 m with a working radar in the center) with a probability of 0,8.



To improve combat effectiveness, the new X-XNUMHUSHKE (TF) rocket retains the existing guidance system with inertial navigation and passive radar seeker and also receives one more additional equipment unit. The television homing head is included in the target search tools. Apparently, the receiving devices of this system are placed in two small fairings in the head part of the rocket, on the lower surface of the body.

Such a modernization of the homing systems of the new rocket can significantly improve the efficiency of the performance of combat missions. With the old passive radar homing missile X-58USHKE or its predecessors have certain limitations when attacking the enemy radar. The introduction of a television guidance system, in turn, makes it possible to increase the effectiveness of the use of a rocket for its intended purpose. The television system allows you to keep aiming at the target in the final segment of the trajectory in a situation where the enemy, seeing the threat, tries to confuse the rocket by turning off the transmitter. In this case, the X-XNUMHUSHKE (TP) rocket must “memorize” the appearance of the target and complete the guidance with the use of a video signal. In addition, it can be assumed that the television guidance system allows the use of a rocket not only to destroy the radar, but also to attack other targets.

According to reports, the model of a promising rocket was demonstrated at the MAKS-2015 exhibition. Information about the existence of full samples or their testing is not yet available. In 2013, it was reported that KTRV is testing X-58USHKE missiles using a special flying laboratory. Similar information about the new project X-XNUMHUSHKE (TP) has not yet been published.

Due to the minimum dimensions in the transport position, the combined guidance system and high flight characteristics, the new tactical guided missile X-58USHKE (TP) has every chance to replenish the list of weapons used by Russian military aircraft. However, first this product will have to be tested and show its real capabilities.

    The target search tool in the new project includes a television homing head.

    I wonder what kind of sweep is used? Probably multi-frame, for moving radar.

      I wonder how effective such a rocket is against Avax? Of course, he will see her at a distance of 100-150 km, but even if he turns off the radiation, then his thermal imaging portrait is very difficult to emit.

        I think with the help of an airborne interception and aiming system it will not be difficult to bring down the AWACS. The composition of the forces and means of interception includes a means of detecting and identifying targets. Targeting and ground guidance system, weapons. Well, for example, like the same rocket, X-58USHKE. Aiming the aircraft at an air target is carried out by control systems, which include ground guidance systems, airborne guidance systems, airborne weapon control. This is the airborne interception and aiming system. The main information comes from the airborne radar, which conducts all the basic training and then to the airborne computer, where it is processed according to a given program and the task of convergence with the target is calculated. Then control commands for the weapon control system are formed.
        Somehow like this.

          As soon as it is switched on by radiation, the aircraft is immediately detected and identified, i.e. quietly sneak up to Avax will not work. And next to him a whole group of cover and the chances to get to the launch line will be very small. It is quite another matter when the carrier aircraft X-58 gets to Avax in the radio silence mode, and even at extremely low altitudes.

            Well, we still have on-board electronic warfare systems, so you get the “radio silence mode”.

              AWACS

              What is Avax ?! fool
              An air-to-ground missile works on ground-based radars, but it is not capable of hitting and targeting airborne targets in principle.

        This air-to-air missile, for Avaxes, there are air-to-air missiles, such as those armed with an instant 31 with a range of up to 300 km and developed for the PAK FA with a range of 400 km ...

        Not at all.
        This is an Air-Surface rocket

        Using an updated guidance system, the X-58USHKE (TP) missile can be used not only to attack enemy radar stations, like previous representatives of the family, but also to destroy other ground targets.

        Control system - SNAU based on BINS + SHPRGS
        The probability of a missile falling into a circle of radius 20 m, in the center of which there is a working radar - At least 0,8

      Video signals taken from the output of the grating are input into the indicator raster scan,
      which is located in the cockpit.

      Probably multi-frame, for moving radar.

      on the drum ("driving")
      the angle of view of the GOS is important.
      And the "driving", what is the creeping radar, for the RVV, which itself flies at a speed of 1M-3,5m, and even the carrier 900km / h

      The actions of the pilot when using these missiles are as follows. He flies to the target, as a rule, at low altitude. After visual detection and identification of the target, the pilot directs his plane in her direction. After that, it switches the weapon selection switch to the position corresponding to the chosen missile, thereby giving commands to it to spin up the gyroscope and reset the nose fairing cover of the homing head. At the same time, the pilot climbs up to 150-250 m. The image of the terrain from the homing head is transmitted to the sight indicator in the cockpit. The pilot, following the target visually, pilots the plane so that its image appears on the screen. Having found the target on the screen, with the handle of turning the homing head, he imposes an electronic crosshair on it and presses the <Tracking> button. As a result, the homing head is put into target tracking mode. After launching a rocket (with a permitted range), lthe detector takes the plane out of the dive into which it entered as a result of maneuvering while aiming (the maximum time of the latter reaches 10-15 s), and depending on the task or situation, leaves the battle or searches for a new target.

      This is to make Western intelligence crazy. A lot of words and little meaning. Although she, Western intelligence has long gone mad. Finish off.

    It’s not clear, but if the enemy introduces defense, for example, firing smoke or aerosol rockets? I’m tormented by the question why such missiles (modified) should not be used from ground-based launchers, they detected radiation (not necessarily anti-aircraft missiles) that they directed and destroyed, because it makes sense, especially now when troops there are many different radars, for different tasks, who in the subject tell me or byte the link, I will be grateful

      The issue of price. Missiles of the X-58 type are quite expensive and their use is justified only when breaking through the air defense system. For ground operations, there are RTR complexes of the Vega and Orion type, which are capable of up to a meter determining the coordinates of any source of radio radiation and issuing artillery target designations.

        It is clear, but if the artillery range is not enough or the radar is in the terrain, or the radar itself will transmit data to the artifact before the artifact is deployed?

      I’m also interested - as a means of countering artillery reconnaissance radars, cheap ground-based missiles are needed, as a promising Hermes could approach the carrier (range up to 100 km, although 30 km would be enough in the PRR variant). Currently, anti-radar missiles exist only in aircraft design.

    The former air defense worker himself. I didn’t understand why I should sit in
    stations with a locator on the roof, where such
    bullshit! The only protection is turning off the transmitter, and that will not help!

    The rocket is good, if not mistaken, inferior to its Western counterparts in range ...
