"Hurricane" fire arrows



The Uragan rocket launcher provides simultaneous destruction of armored and unarmored targets over an area of ​​about 43 hectares.

Modern multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) are today one of the main fire weapons of the Russian Ground Forces. In the period from 1941 to 1945, their famous mother Katyusha terrified the German troops and surpassed their towed MLRS installations Nebelwerfer and Wurfrahmen (were put into service in 1940) for mobility and range of destruction. For instant defeat of various targets on large areas, the Russian army is equipped with well-known MLRS and their modified versions of “Grad” (“Tornado-G”), “Hurricane” and “Smerch” (“Tornado-S”).

Currently, the jet system "Hurricane" is considered one of the most famous and common in the armies of the world. The highly mobile "Hurricane" convincingly proved its power and effectiveness in real combat operations in Afghanistan, the North Caucasus and Ukraine, the Middle East and Africa.

History create

MLRS 9К57 "Hurricane" was created at the initiative of the Tula Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering. On the basis of the M-21 field reactive system at the beginning of the 60s of the last century, a more powerful rocket artillery combat vehicle was developed in terms of fire impact and range. On the basis of the project (1964 of the year) in 1967, the scientific work “Creating a high-precision Uragan rocket launcher complex (HB-121-66) confirmed the possibility of creating such an MLRS with specified characteristics.

In the second half of 1968, an advance design was developed, in 1969 – 1970, the tactical and technical requirements for development work were refined. The project envisaged the creation of combat (BM) and transport-charging (TZM) vehicles on a wheeled (ZIL-135LM) and tracked (MT-C) chassis. A variant of TZM based on the KrAZ-253 vehicle was also considered. Practical work allowed to determine the types of warheads for rockets. Alexander Ganichev became the chief designer of the system as a whole, Yuri Kalachnikov was the combat vehicle. In the final version of the MLRS "Hurricane" was adopted and operated with 1975 year. The serial production of the Uragan rocket artillery system was made by the SNPP Splav (Tula) from 1975 to 1991.

Features

The Soviet rocket launcher system 9K57 "Hurricane" is designed to destroy openly located and sheltered manpower, armored and unarmored vehicles, as well as arealized (artillery, missile and anti-aircraft units, command posts, communications centers, warehouses, bases) and other enemy installations at distances from 8 – 10 to 35 kilometers. In addition, the rocket system "Hurricane" can be used for complete mining of the area using anti-personnel and anti-tank mines.

To solve these problems, the complex has combat, providing and training facilities. The combat elements of the MLRS Uragan include combat (BM, 9P140) and transport-charging (TZM, 9Т452) vehicles, 220-mm missiles and the Kapustnik-B automated fire control system (1B126). Means of combat support - a vehicle for topographic survey (1Т12-2М), a radio-direction-finding meteorological complex (1Б44), a set of special arsenal equipment and tools (9Ф381).

Fighting vehicle (launcher) combat weight 20 tons is used to transport 16 rockets, their launch and hit targets in an area of ​​at least 42 hectares. The artillery unit - a block of 16 tubular guides with sights, guidance mechanisms, communication and control devices - is located on the chassis of a four-axle high-performance automobile ZIL-135ЛМП (wheel formula 8 XX8). A block can be aimed at a target in vertical (5 – 55 degrees) and horizontal (up to 240 degrees) planes. Guides with a U-shaped screw groove give the initial rotation of the projectile for a stable flight along the trajectory. Missiles can be launched in one gulp (0,5 interval of a second) and at a ragged pace (the first eight after 0,5 seconds, the next after 2 seconds). In the latter case, the frequency of oscillations of the BM decreases and the accuracy of shooting increases. A four-person calculation (in peacetime) ensures that the installation is placed in a combat position, leaving the firing position and reloading the ammunition during 3, 1,5 and 15 minutes, respectively.

TZM (9Т452) on the same wheelbase provides loading and unloading of the launcher. Recharging BM ammunition from 16 rockets is made within 15 minutes. When fully loaded, the BM and TZM can move along the highway with a maximum speed of up to 65 km / h and, without prior preparation, can cross the fords to a depth of 1,2 meters. The fuel reserve is enough for 500 kilometers.

To solve problems, the launcher can use rockets with high-explosive fragmentation (9М27Ф), cluster (9М27К) with fragmentation combat elements, incendiary (9М27С) and volume-detonating (9М51) headpieces. Depending on the problem being solved, their mass ranges from 89,5 to 99 kg. For remote mining of terrain, rockets are used with a cluster head for anti-tank (9М59) or anti-personnel (9М27К2, 9М27К3) min. For the moral and psychological impact on the enemy, the "Hurricane" can use a projectile (9М27Д), the head of which is equipped with campaign materials.

The Uragan artillery jet system works flawlessly at external temperatures from –40 to + 50ºС, winds up to 20 m / s, high humidity and dustiness of air at altitudes up to 3 thousand meters above sea level. It can solve combat missions in terms of the use of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons at any time of the year and day in weather-climatic conditions of any region of the world, where it can be delivered by any type of transport. The system is constantly being upgraded to increase combat capabilities.

Currently, the MLRS "Uragan" is the standard fire system of the Russian army. In addition, this powerful fire system exists in the armies of Ukraine, Afghanistan, the Czech Republic, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Belarus, Poland, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Yemen, Kyrgyzstan, Guinea, Syria, Tajikistan, Eritrea, Slovakia and other countries.

Combat use of the MLRS "Uragan"


The baptism of the MLRS "Uragan" took place in Afghanistan - the Mujahideen called it "Shaitan Pipe" and were very afraid. “Hurricane” has demonstrated its effectiveness in South Africa and in the Syria-Israel war in the early 80s. The fire system was used against separatist illegal armed groups in the Chechen Republic and during the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict of the 2008 year. In 2014 – 2015, the Uragan rocket system on KrAZ-6322 was actively used by the Ukrainian armed forces in the south-east of the country, as well as militiamen who captured several launchers in battles.

High efficiency and operational reliability of the MLRS "Uragan" guarantee its use as a fire weapon of destruction in the next 10 – 15 years.

      Of course, I am also very proud of the achievements of our designers in the area of ​​the MLRS, but in fairness it should be noted that the "Hurricane" has more in common with the "Grad", which was created on the basis of German developments.

          You see, Olga, even if this is true, then in fairness it should be noted that all the military of different countries use the achievements of their opponents and allies.
          For instance. the project of the battleship "Retvizan", the Americans used to develop their armored fleet, the Germans stole a 120 mm mortar, the Japanese used the Mauser in the development of the Arisaki, and so on, and so on.
          It was always surprising when they say that the missile programs of the USSR are the development of a German trophy, modestly silent about the roots of the development of the American program.
          I’ll put a plus for you, I compensate for the fact that some minusers can’t explain why the minus (I got these minuses myself) and put the minuses undeservedly.

            I have never argued that the USSR missile program is only the development of a German trophy program, modestly silent about the roots of the development of the American program. Although it is fair to say that the first Soviet BR P-1 and P-2 are almost complete copies of the V-2.
            Anyway, the achievements of the USSR in space and rocket science are indisputable.
            But ignorance, "urya-patriotism" and the unwillingness of the minus to find out how things stand with the creation of this or that type of weaponry are frankly depressing.

              I agree 120%.
              This is especially noticeable on the example of the F-35 and Zamvolta.
              I presume that wit and jokes immediately begin. and how they will be knocked down and drowned in batches, (Such comments discourage the desire to read material.) at the same time they do not try to critically analyze, since counterintelligence also works in the USA, and it knows how to deliver disu too.

              And about the missile theme, the United States turned out to have Brown and the company, so that the American space and missile program is more based on German developments and ideas. and neither of which, as there is no inferiority complex.

                  All military developments in general are based on the fact that someone took something good and improved it. Take the German systems - remember the missiles PMV, RS, used by the USSR in Spain, Finland and Khalkhin Gol. Let's see them - remember French flares, etc. Missiles in general already in Ancient Rome knew, so taking someone else’s technology and improving it is normal practice and absolutely not shameful. If you look at the same Kalashnikov assault rifle, it’s a hodgepodge of weapons nodes of a much earlier type. Nobody could unite to unite everything.

              Indeed, both P-1 and P2 were created taking V2 as a basis, but in reality in the USSR they could not make a copy, since there were no whole branches of industry. Hundreds of alloys and dozens of plastics had to be created for this project and as a result - in fact, a completely different rocket turned out, although it undoubtedly inherited the main technical solutions. But all this has nothing to do with what you are given cons. In your post, you indicated that the BM-21Grad was created on the basis of German developments, which is fundamentally untrue. The same "experts" claim that the AK is made based on the StG 44. The hurricane structurally has a lot in common with the Grad, but like it has nothing to do with the German MLRS during the Second World War.

          You yourself have to teach history and the material part. BM-21 Grad has been developed since 1958 and was put into service in 1963. A fundamentally different from the previous and at that time traditional methods of projectile stabilization was used. For the first time, a tubular guide with a spiral groove was used in combination with stabilizers that can be deployed in flight. German MLRS during the Second World War had either turbojet stabilization, such as the 21 cm Nebelwerfer 42 and 15cm Panzerwerfer 42, or rotary (for aerodynamic stabilizers), essentially clones of Soviet BM-13 (Katyusha) shells. The only line of Soviet MLRS made "based on" the German ones are BM-14 and RPU-14, they use turbojet projectiles and smooth tubular guides, but they are difficult to tie to the precursors of the Hurricane. The Germans, by the way, created their Lars1 just based on the Grad (they applied the same stabilization scheme) in 1969, becoming the first country in the western bloc to adopt MLRS.

        You are not formulated so.
        It was necessary to write. Now, if the Russians surrendered Moscow, the Germans then flew to the moon before the Americans, because Von Braun was a German. They plundered the whole of Germany, now they are using German developments. The Faustpatron was installed on the Studebaker, and it turned out to be a Katyusha. Probably so?

          In the post-war period, work was underway in the USSR to create unguided anti-aircraft missiles based on captured German solid propellant "Typhoon".
          The modified "Typhoon" in the USSR received the name RZS-115 "Swift". But as an anti-aircraft weapon, due to the increased characteristics of combat aircraft, it was already ineffective and decided to make MLRS on its basis.

            Well, yes - the captured Germans really worked - no one denies this, but the Germans did not squeeze anything out of the captured designs of the anti-aircraft missiles - a fact, but the guys Lavrenty Beria were forced to work on new samples, having collected specialists not exported to America with ALL Germany, could and it was a huge help for us - a medical fact. As well as the help of the Americans ... yes, actually Oppenheimer laughing in the creation of an atomic project - the lag time was significantly reduced, although before the war they went head to head, as evidenced by developments in Kharkov. Nikichikhin, a friend of Vasya Stalin, seemed to be testing equipment there, his own - someone else's, in 1938.

              Do not confuse SAM and NURS. No. The Germans in the year of the war created quite a few very successful solid propellant rockets. Some of them were later copied to the USSR, for example, take a look at the history of the creation of the aviation C-5.

            What is right and what does the German Typhoon rocket have to do with Hail ????
            As a result of work on Strizh (based on Typhoon), Soviet designers applied a NEW projectile stabilization scheme - they combined stabilization with aerodynamic rudders and rotation (giving a rotation impulse in a spiral groove of the guide), which was later used in Grad. What exactly was borrowed from the Typhoon when creating the City?
            What is common between the Typhoon anti-aircraft missile and the Grad rocket, besides the fact that they are both rockets? By the way, the Germans themselves did not bring solid fuel to mind and the emphasis was on liquid.
            According to this logic, if the designer received the Mosin rifle as a model, but thought it over he designed the SVD, then the SVD is based on the Mosin?

        BR R-1 and R-2 are almost complete copies of the V-2.

        laughing Well, the fact that the A-4 / P-1 is understandable - the order was to be done one-to-one, but the P-2 .... You at least look and find it - the head part is already separated and the explosive is increased by 40%, the tank is alcohol - a carrier. This is, although "intermediate", but for those times, distant, now almost epic "it was a serious achievement, moreover, in order to improve accuracy, a combined control system was used on the rocket, which included an autonomous system for stabilizing the rocket and determining the speed and the radio system for the lateral correction of the missile flight. Not without German prisoners at Seliger, of course, the control system was created. So this is a completely different machine, unlike the A-4. So somehow carefully study the history of the creation of this or that sample, otherwise your knowledge somehow not only the Uryapatriots are depressing laughing

        Of course, I am also very proud of the achievements of our designers in the area of ​​the MLRS, but in fairness it should be noted that the "Hurricane" has more in common with the "Grad", which was created on the basis of German developments.

        On the basis of what such German developments is the Grad made ???? Introducing another meme about the fact that everyone developed the Germans? The Germans during the war did not have anything close to the City, which was created in 1963 and for the first time in this system embodied a series of measures to stabilize the projectile. The Germans in the MLRS were either turbo-jet, or with aerodynamic stabilization.
        The Germans created LARS 1 just by taking the BM-21 as a role model in 1969. The specific know-how that was used on the BM-21 Grad was the stabilization of the NURS due to the combination of a threaded barrel (a spiral driving groove is made in the tubular guide), the expanding stabilizers in addition had an angle of inclination to the axis, supporting the obtained rotational momentum.
        The Germans did not have anything of the kind - the turbojet projectile received a rotational impulse (1000 rpm) due to the inclination of the nozzles in the bottom of the projectile. The rest (rotational) were essentially clones or "based on" Katyusha, and not vice versa.
        In part, we can admit that German developments found a response in the Soviet post-war MLRS - BM-14 (the beginning of development in 1947) had a launcher design and a PC similar (not a copy) to the 15cm Panzerwerfer 42 Auf.Sf or Sd.Kfz.4 / 1. All the similarities were in the stabilization method and the tubular guides.
        Teach materiel.

          Did you follow the link or just decided to show your "knowledge"? Here's another one for you: http://nvo.ng.ru/notes/2008-03-21/8_grad.html
          Here it says in particular: The combat unit of the Swift (the Soviet version of Typhoon) was rather weak for fighting ground targets, and its weight was increased to 16,5 kg, the mass of TNT increased from 1,6 kg to 5,5 kg. Naturally, the caliber and the total weight of the rocket became large. But for now, the essence and the matter, NII-642 was ordered by the Minaviaprom of 6 on November 1957 to be subordinated to V.N. Chelomey at OKB-52. And work on the rocket was transferred to Tula at the NII-147 (since 1992 of the year - the State scientific and production association "Fusion").

          Thus, NII-147 received, if not a prototype rocket, then at least a semi-finished product.

          The design of elements of the multiple launch rocket system was initiated on the basis of an order of the State Committee for Defense Technology (GKOT) of February 24 of 1959 of the year 30 of May 1960 of the USSR Council of Ministers issued Decree No. 578-236 of the beginning of full-scale work on the “field division reactive system“ Hail". She was supposed to replace the 140-mm reactive system M-14.

          NII-147 was appointed the lead contractor of the system. SKB-203 did the launcher; NII-6 - solid propellant charges; GSKB-47 - equipment for combat units.

          By 1960, the caliber of the product had already increased from 115 to 122 mm. The new shell was stabilized by both the tail and the rotation. More precisely, the rotational movement, since it was extremely small - tens of revolutions per second and did not create a sufficient gyroscopic effect, but it compensated for the deviation of the engine traction force. Thus, the most important reason for the dispersion of shells was excluded. Such a stabilization system was close to optimal and was adopted for subsequent larger-caliber systems “Hurricane” and “Tornado”.

          Open your eyes and a smaller aplomb ...

    No "Dome" can withstand a couple of volleys. And if they survive, they will go broke on anti-missiles.

      So it seems, according to competent comrades, from the homeland of the dome, the cost of one rocket is about six to eight thousand $! This is in a series.
      And they have sea rockets! Of course, shells can fill any dome, and missiles any missile defense ... The point is in quantity!
      However, I do not understand! Why should we bomb Israel? Is the dome numbing to experience?

    You see, Olga, even if this is true, then in fairness it should be noted that all the military of different countries use the achievements of their opponents and allies.
    For instance. the project of the battleship "Retvizan", the Americans used to develop ..

    Retvizan is originally an American. wink
