"Kalashnikov" will launch guided missiles

Izhevsk concern "Kalashnikov" will soon launch into mass production a guided missile "Whirlwind-1", overcoming the difficulties associated with the replacement of imported components, according to Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to TASS.




“There were, indeed, difficulties. They were connected with the fact that this rocket was never produced serially. There were issues with import substitution, but today they are all resolved. The tests have been completed, and we will soon begin the serial assembly, ”the concern’s general director Alexey Krivoruchko told the agency.

Now, according to him, “from a technical point of view, the fulfillment of the contract (from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation) does not cause concern.” He also noted that the date of commencement of production will be agreed with the military department.

Help WG: “Vortex-1” is a guided missile developed at the Tula Instrument Engineering Bureau. It is designed to defeat armored vehicles, as well as low-speed air targets. The rocket flies at a supersonic speed of up to 610 meters per second, and it takes only 4 seconds to overcome a 9 distance of thousands of meters. ”

      Import substitution from Kalashnikov:
      Quickly (no more than 9 seconds) I replace the tower with an IMPORT tank, an explosion and fireworks. With a haze!
      With a high degree of reliability, I replace IMPORTED armored vehicles with shards and funnels!

      Kalashnikov decided to keep up with the times, if they could still arrange the production of electronic components, then this would be a good example of how to get afloat when switching to a new quality ...

        if you could still arrange the release of electronic components

        With Kalash’s existing metalworking manufacturing base, the question begs no offense: Are you in your own mind too? The production of electronic components is no less complicated than metalworking. It’s easier for Kalash to buy a finished plant for these purposes, But, for me, it’s better not to do this. The trouble is, since the shoemaker will start the pies, and the boots will stitch the pie.
        Even simply in the manufacture of electronic components and assemblies, a huge amount of new equipment appears, a new, large range of components. It’s sometimes cheaper to buy from subcontractors.

        I don’t remember who (even laid out the video) very convincingly showed that there are problems when firing rockets from turntables (the video had Ka-52 on an air dart), and that they should hang before shooting. Maybe you, or someone knows - these are only the problems with us, or the Apaches have the same thing, and how this problem can be solved. hi

          The Whirlwind and Attack missiles have a supersonic speed and the range of destruction is higher, but Apache’s Hellfire missiles operate on a shot-forget system, whereas our missiles with radio command guidance, that is, the helicopter must hang until the missile reaches its target, Apache can immediately after- to blame

    Kalashnikov’s fame was won by the creation of super weapons - reliable and reliable, but the appearance of their missile-themed units, UAVs, boats I do not see forward movement.
    Is the limit of design thought has already come, since the gunsmiths began to grow into unusual parallel business

      This is the lot of all "concerns". Large offices most often either lose their ability to innovate, or even stop developing, because it is easier to buy a finished development. Take Microsoft. Kotor began with a dubious scam from IBM to push an OS into it, which was written on the knee of a hired programmer (not Bill Gates). With the money they earned, they began to buy other people's developments and stick their own label.
      Since the days of Kuzyuk and Zlobin, Izhmash only learned to wag their tongues in the promise to start production of something new.

    This rocket is 35 years old, but it still reached the mass release, which means that it "paid" to Hellfire in all respects. This also means that assault aircraft will now be able to work on armored vehicles without going into the zone of cannon destruction (Shilka), and for 10 km there will not be a single MANPADS, in addition, the Khibiny will not miss more long-range weapons.
    Only one comment and one question remained.
    Laser-guided guidance depends on the weather in the flight area.
    And how much can such ammunition cost?

      Hellfire is already firing on the principle of letting and forgetting, and the Whirlwind is controlled by laser illumination - so we are behind.

        Just don’t forget: hellfire is a very expensive system, especially since the Whirlwind is superior in range. Hellfire's domestic price in 2008 was $ 66.
        And I continue to think that the Whirlwind is cheaper, but how much?

          Well guys, we didn’t produce these missiles with obstacles of a certain period. The main thing is to start production with all the complexities of its organization. And there is already modernization, and all sorts of price-quality. Dashing trouble is the beginning, and then it will go. In fact, the entire military-industrial complex has just begun to work, for some reason they often forget about it.

        Not. Helfaer does not act on the principle of "released-forgot." It requires constant illumination.

    There were issues with import substitution

    It was never. There were and are problems with the staff. According to rumors, it was necessary to raise the old grandfather from retirement, who was brought to the plant almost on a stretcher with a dropper and a duck. Without it, the rocket did not fly.

      Yes, but they are hesitant.
      In 2013, at the initiative of the Kalashnikov Concern, the base department of Arms Systems of IzhSTU was created to improve the quality of training of qualified personnel in the defense industry. In 2014, an additional educational program for students of design specialties was launched at the department. Based on the results of training and practical research, the best students are hired by the Kalashnikov Concern. In 2013, 35 graduates of higher and secondary vocational educational institutions were accepted for production, 2014 in 49. In 2015, the concern plans to increase the number of employees up to 75 people. http://kalashnikovconcern.ru

        As well as with import substitution, by creating training centers for lean manufacturing. wink
        Or by studying the kaizen production management system in Japanese Toyota?

        Oh leave ... winked

        28.09 was on a press tour at IzhSTU. They repaired the shooting gallery, put equipment on 16 millions. And the museum has the most modern example of "Styer AUG".

        I wanted to write a report for VO, but I found nothing interesting for myself.

      There is no uniqueness, but there is a peculiarity: the helicopter operator puts a laser point on the target from a distance of 10 km and presses Start :: he was not satisfied - he repeats while continuing to drink coffee, not being afraid of Shilka and Stinger.

          In modern conditions, a hypersonic missile with a launch range of 30 kilometers and the principle of control is fired and forgotten, and the Whirlwind can only be used well against militants, their armored vehicles and structures. Against a modern army equipped with air defense systems, he will no longer ride.

        So the pilot illuminates the missile with a laser? So explain, are we preparing weapons against the Papuans? We use radiation sensors on a modern technique, a missile will fly from 10 km to nine seconds, a tank will either fall, or a curtain will be installed. Yes and shilkas with stingers are just one of the most important armaments. So what is unique?

      To turn the rudders, the energy of the oncoming flow is used, which enters through the air intake, which is located in front. The modified laser control system is most likely from the Shell shell. then, with the improvement of the Shell, the Whirlwind will also improve

    Here is the RIA message:

    “In a July report to the president, another thing sounded:“ Kalashnikov Concern didn’t deliver 1972 guided missiles. Reasons: poor processing of design documentation and not full-fledged production launch activities. ”In other words, the reorganized concern, which spent gigantic PR money, didn’t was even able to launch an ATGM production line. "

      They started with GSh guns (Gryazev-Shipunov, for those who don’t know), obviously (they are still being made). then the general design bureau, the late academician Shipunov, launched the production of guided projectile Krasnopol on Izhmash. The whirlwind was initially launched into production on Izhmeh, but then after the destruction of rocket production there under Yeltsin, it was transferred to Izhmash. The story is long, like the construction of Borea. and Izhmash had a direct relationship to the production of rockets before - in 1957 they began to produce meteorological rockets that had been successfully produced for a long time, but as a result of intrigues inside the defense industry, they transferred to another enterprise, back in Soviet times. yes, I forgot: Izhmash and Izhmeh now both enter Kalashnikov
