Transportable air defense missile system "Willow" will be equipped with ships of the Russian Navy and helicopters

44
Valery Kashin, General Designer of the NPK Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering, told the correspondent TASS that the newest Verba anti-aircraft missile systems will continue to enter into service with parts and formations, and in addition, some ships and helicopters will be equipped with them. Valery Kashin:


Its predecessor, the Igla-S MANPADS, is used as part of the ship’s Bending facility, a set of Sagittarius autonomous modules on helicopters. The same path goes "Willow". I cannot give details yet.


Kashin added that the Verba portable anti-aircraft missile system is resistant to various quite aggressive environments, including environments with high humidity, which is why it can be used on naval ships fleet Russian Federation.

Valery Kashin:
The rocket is sealed, materials that are insensitive to aggressive media are used.


MANPADS "Verba" previously entered service with the Ivanovo formation of the Airborne Forces. The complex is equipped with a unique automatic control system. According to the statements of the developers, the automated control system of “Verba” MANPADS allows not only detecting an air target, but also determining its main characteristics, movement parameters, and distributing targets between anti-aircraft gunners and fire weapons, taking into account the distance to the target.

Transportable air defense missile system "Willow" will be equipped with ships of the Russian Navy and helicopters


From the statement of the management representative press service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation:

The human factor is eliminated, the defeat of its air target is saved, the amount of ammunition for combat missions is saved, the effectiveness of the use of anti-aircraft units is increased.


MANPADS "willow" allows you to destroy any air targets at altitudes from 10 m to 4,5 km, at a distance from 500 to 6500 m.

Around 30, the latest “Verba” MANPADS entered service with a motorized rifle unit of the BBO, stationed in the Khabarovsk Territory, as well as into a number of other units.

      in general, the mass of the needle is under 20 kg, the willow is unlikely to be easier, but the willow also has an optical sight, a heavy thing. You must have a means for transporting archers.

        There was a video clip about Russia 24 not long ago as oppositionists in Syria launched a MANPADS missile and it flew along the shortest path towards a working pickup truck but the driver was not taken aback and drove away and the rocket exploded not far from the car and the car remained intact.

          I get it. The current here is the principle of guidance and launch can be the same. Why do our tanks have different shells, plus a rocket that can be launched from the barrel? So, neighing? I meant a single launcher, and not "naughty" with the same shot all over? Although a single shot like a "all season" can be. Let the designer think about it.

            You still screw a flashlight on my forehead! So that he could also mow at night! (C)

            Do you imagine the required qualifications of a tank crew that should work equally well with guided weapons on enemy tanks and aircraft? I'm not talking about the equipment required for solving air defense tasks (otherwise there will be no benefit from missiles in the BC). And also about the fact that the tank BC is extremely limited.

            No need to make another "Mur and Merilis" from MBT. All missile defense tasks of a tank / mechanized infantry formation are accomplished by regular means - you only need to establish interaction and communication.

            And then we have already become a bad trend instead of wisely using our own, attached and interacting forces to make super-versatile machines, shifting the task of organizing the battle from higher headquarters to the shoulders of field commanders.
            Why at the headquarters of a regiment or battalion plan to use their own and attached fire weapons of the battalion - ATGM, AGS, mortars? Let's give the companies a super-universal BMPT - and let the comrades himself tra ... thinking how to use it.

            Better not to be "the same."
            The tank is always on the ground, the plane is always in the air. Their speeds vary by an order of two or three. Implementation of the guidance method that is optimal for ATGMs can be extremely difficult for MANPADS and vice versa. The power and types of warheads needed to destroy a target also vary enormously. There is a Kornet-D ATGM, in which the affected area for an air target flying at a speed of 250 m / s is slightly smaller than that of Thor. But this is a nice bonus during the day in conditions of good visibility.

            The requirements of universality usually give rise to monsters.

          Soviet MANPADS carried high-explosive-cumulative warheads. A cumulative funnel with a large aperture angle, which, however, was enough to destroy the instrument compartment, head, and throw these kilograms at the target. Well, enemy researchers make it difficult to work in the event of a miss and after self-destruction.

      The fact that the “Verba” is also not bad lol
      The 9M336 missile of this complex is equipped with a unique three-spectral homing head operating in the ultraviolet, near infrared and mid-infrared ranges. It is this difference in spectra that allows you to get more information about the target, which makes MANPADS "selective" weapons. In addition, the “Willow” head has a significantly higher sensitivity in comparison with the Igla-S MANPADS. This increases the range of capture of air objects. Also, the homing head automatically performs the “selection” of false thermal targets (thermal noise) and focuses on the object with the strongest thermal radiation.

    nothing worthwhile. Get a mediocre MANPADS and mediocre ATGMs in one bottle. What will need to develop two completely different missiles (one to destroy armor on the ground and the other for air targets).

    Such a head has no advantages when used in a missile for MANPADS, but the cost will increase at times. Russia needs weapons at the same time both cheap (we don’t have such grandmas as Americans) and effective.
