On each machine, an 2 unit is mounted, capable of releasing 40 NAR. The weight of one empty block - 150kg, equipped - 450 kg.
“The mass of one 80-mm HAP, depending on the modification, ranges from 11,3 to 15,2 kg. Missiles can have different warheads: cumulative fragmentation, with two thousand "arrows" for hitting manpower, volume-detonating, concrete-breaking, lighting, etc. The target range is about 2 km. At the maximum distance - scattering about 6 meters from the aiming point, "- said the publication.
Ukrainian experts are not pioneers in this matter. According to Vestnik, “the first experiments were carried out in Afghanistan, then Tanks, Armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles with established NAR could be seen in Transnistria, Nagorno-Karabakh and Abkhazia. ”
The author, referring to the experts, believes that “the installation of NAR units on the former Strela-10 complexes is a forced measure, the anti-aircraft missiles have long expired warranty periods, and the Ukrainians also have problems with aircraft carriers of these units one. "
The disadvantages of the "new" complexes, according to the publication, are "weak booking of the tractor and the short range of the C-8 missiles, which ultimately will inevitably lead to losses in equipment and personnel."
