72
Transport and combat Mi-17 of the Azerbaijani army were armed with Israeli anti-tank missiles IAI LAHAT with a semi-active laser guidance system, the blog reported bmpd.




“Helicopters each carry two quadruple launchers LAHAT ATGMs and an MOSP-3000D electro-optical detection and guidance station. Azerbaijan has become the first well-known foreign customer of the LAHAT complex in a helicopter variant (SkyBow), ”the report says.



LAHAT rocket, caliber 105 mm, has a length of 975 mm and a weight of 13,5 kg. Warhead weight (cumulative tandem) - 2,5 kg. The range of the shot in the helicopter variant is about 13 km (from a tank gun - 8 km).

At the beginning of the 2014 g rocket passed the successful tests in Israel. Its launches were carried out with a specially upgraded Mi-8 helicopter.

Azerbaijani Mi-17 armed with Israeli missiles


Help bmpd: “LAHAT (Laser Homing Attack or Laser Homing Anti-Tank) with a semi-active laser guidance system was developed by IAI in the 1990s, initially as tank guided missiles for firing from 105-mm and 120-mm tank guns, however, later it was offered as ATGM for launching from light launchers of ground, ship and air (helicopters and UAVs) based. "A helicopter version of the rocket (SkyBow) was introduced to the market in 2004. For a long time, India was considered the main potential customer of SkyBow, however, repeated tests and demonstrations of this complex on the Indian HAL Dhruv helicopter did not lead to serial contracts."

            But with regard to everything else, there is the possibility and challenge. It is not for nothing that there are so many words with a derivative of Yiddish in "fen". During the Soviet years, many Jews sat behind the owner.

        I don’t see anything idiotic, the customer pays money and voices the requirements for the product. If his requirements do not satisfy, he refuses to buy. Azerbaijan arranged everything and he purchased the product. In general, Hindus are complex and difficult as customers are buyers of weapons, but whoever pays, he orders the music.

          So you also do not understand the meaning of this kind of tank ammunition.

          The tank "Lahat" is similar to the Russian UAS "Kitolov" when used from the ACS "Vena". The main purpose is defeat unobserved goals with external illumination by rangefinders, designators or UAVs. But at the same time, shooting with the target indicator of the self-propelled gun / tank is possible.

          And there is absolutely no sense in hitting targets with this munition at the range of effective fire of a tank gun with their regular sub-caliber, cumulative or HE shells.
          It's trite because of the time. While the tanker will try to work out "Lakhat" on the enemy's tank, he will have time to throw 4 "crowbars" in response. With all that it implies: the ammunition is not homing, the disruption of guidance is guaranteed after the first arriving BOPS

    Patriotism is certainly good, but it is also present among Azerbaijanis. The only strange thing is that the country with the crescent moon chose the products of the flag of the star of David, apparently a really good rocket in its class.

    Against the frontal armor of tanks 105 mm Lahat is rather weak.
    And they refused to execute it: "the tank shoots and accompanies with a laser."
    We thought (and tested) the application: "the tank is shooting from over the hill
    at an angle upward, and the helicopter leads with a laser to the target. "
    With the advent of long-range ATGMs with GOS and optical-cable control
    Lahat project stalled.
    But from a helicopter (a strike from above on the tower and the motor) can come in handy.

      they are seriously cheaper than "Spike", and for hitting both a tank in the roof and for suppressing firing points, warheads and accuracy are quite enough.

        I will add - and range. 13-km is just in line with modern tactics of using helicopters for previously reconnoitered targets. And only a semi-active laser is not enough, a duplicate channel would be nice, even a television one. But here's the "eight" without armor .... On the way there are enough holes from the rifle.

          The Mi-8 / Mi-17 is not a combat helicopter. And they are not being armed to fight tank breakthroughs and to act "on the front end." Arming them in order to, together with combat helicopters, clean up the site for tactical airborne assault.

          Powerful ATGM systems are clearly redundant for him, something old, second generation is enough ... And here "Lakhat" is clearly preferable to "Assault". Due to the greater range and the possibility of external target designation.

        And where does the NKR S-300 come from?

        Tell me, have you personally never been surprised by so many troops of the NKR? But until the end of the 90s, the NKR never had its army. And suddenly, out of nowhere, appeared. From there, the S-300.
        In answering this question, keep in mind that until 91 years old, I lived in those steppes and I have a concept of what Stenaparket is and what it is eaten with.

          Well, there are people who think that purely the inhabitants of Karabakh are protecting the land, and the fact that there are Armenian troops stationed there and conscripts send a surprise there for them.
          Recently, some military men were detained with the Armenian Defense Ministry for taking a bribe in order to discourage conscripts from being sent to service in Karabakh.

      The use of helicopters in those parts, especially if at the moment the NKR has not only MANPADS but also stationary S-300 systems, it seems an extremely controversial venture.
      Even with Israeli rockets

      Again. Lopatov already wrote above that the Mi-8/17 is not an attack helicopter, t / e it is not intended to break through enemy defenses or repel tank attacks, but to support helicopter landings, to suppress encircled units blocked by ballistic missiles, t / e for all that to which there is no way to distract full-fledged attack helicopters, a perfectly acceptable replacement.

        Again. Missiles can well be quite good, but the experience of the first war showed that the use of aviation, both helicopters and airplanes, with a dense saturation of the battle formations of MANPADS (of which there are more than enough) will lead to a very high level of losses. If a professor looks here, he can more professionally open the topic, as he is directly connected with both the flyers and was connected in the Soviet era with Armenia - Azerbaijan

          And here "Lakhat" is just the perfect weapon.

          Given the presence of UAVs in Azerbaijan, which, in principle, it is impossible to shoot down MANPADS, available to Armenia. But at the same time capable of highlighting targets for missiles / shells with a semi-active laser seeker.

            And Lahat is good and there are UAVs, but I still can’t understand what will prevent it from shooting down helicopters before launching missiles?

      Genesis, from the S-300 only I.Dioti shoot at helicopters. The S-300 is such a system that launching missiles at helicopters is unprofitable)))

    Azerbaijan has not so many "full-fledged attack helicopters". Only two dozen. Of these, a dozen MI-24Gs. And in a more or less large conflict, these two dozen MI-17s will become full-fledged and assault.

      26 pieces to be exact. Of these, at least 12 modernized. Plus 24 pieces of Mi-35M border guards.

    IMHO equipping a transport helicopter with ATGMs is a mistake. The bourgeois also make this mistake. Well, perhaps for "self-defense" and support of the landing troops.

      Not for "support", for cleaning the site.
      This allows you to reduce the required number of combat helicopters. Which should
      a) lead transport helicopters along the "corridor", hitting undetected air defense systems
      b) to clean the site
      c) provide support for tactical airborne assault operations.

      The armament of transport helicopters allows you to exclude item "b"

          This was a lot in the war and will obviously be in the new war. There are a lot of rams in the higher echelons. The only professionals at the middle and lower levels are much more than in the last war and they can send generals away with murderous orders.

              Yes, they themselves created such conditions. It’s like in Syria, in peacetime, like everyone loves Assad and a little support and the country is on fire. The same thing here. It seems everyone loves Aliyev, but in fact everyone is afraid to say that they DO NOT love. There are many generals not deserving of these epaulettes. There are Karabakh veterans who are dissatisfied with the authorities, as the majority made their way up, not people shedding blood, but rats sitting in Baku. Plus over the past 20 years, when many real experts have been suspended, a new minister has been appointed who really started I’ve done quite a bit with the soldiers and put things in order, but BUT it is also limited.

              And it’s one thing when there is no active fighting, but only passively, the General from Baku can tell you and take actions that offend honor and dignity, damaging the state-wu. Another thing, when there is an active war, the soldiers are heavily armed, they comrades die in battles and war heroes appear. Then they will listen to them more than the general who is sitting there knows nothing about military affairs and gives a murderous order. In the 90s there were few professionals and many did not always understand the killer of the order , now there are many professionals in the middle and lower echelons and they will not let their soldiers die due to the stupidity of one fool and quickly put him in his place if he starts to kick. And the people will be on the side of the soldiers.
              Therefore, the Aliyevs are afraid of the war, because they will start it only with a 100% win, even 99 is not acceptable for them, because the slightest mistake and they are overthrown in an instant.

              Well, in Russia they will say how wonderful Aliyev is, and the speeches and rallies are the machinations of the State Department and the Azerbaijanis were brainwashed)))

                Aliyevs are "afraid"? Or maybe this is good? Poroshenko was "not afraid" and what did it lead to? In my opinion, Azerbaijan has no chances to return Karabakh by military means, so we need to look for diplomatic ways of settlement.

                  Yes, no, Russia is standing behind the Armenians so far. But where is the guarantee that they will not be set on fire from outside? The problem of frozen conflicts is that they can be thawed. And it is not the parties to the conflict that can thaw them, but other people’s uncles.

                  therefore, diplomatic solutions must be sought.

                  Of course, everyone around is so beautifully "peacefully" resolving issues.
                  Russia in Chechnya, Ossetia, in Syria peacefully, without a videoconferencing system calmed down the parties.
                  The USA in Iraq, Afghanistan has peacefully decided.
                  Koreans peacefully decide.
                  Pakistanis with Hindus peacefully decide.
                  These are the countries that speak of a peaceful solution, let them first solve their problems peacefully, and then they advise others to do so.
