UR-77 "Meteorite" in Syria

The Syrian army continues to successfully use the well-proven installations of the UR-77 "Meteorite" to destroy the fortifications of the Islamists, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


UR-77 "Meteorite" in Syria


“UR-77 (also known as“ Serpent Gorynych ”) were originally created as mine-clearance installations. But the experience of hostilities in the North Caucasus has demonstrated that they can also be used to eliminate terrorists entrenched in fortified buildings. True, the Zmey Gorynych is such a radical means that, together with terrorists, the building is usually destroyed. Very often the whole. Therefore, its use has various kinds of limitations, ”writes the author of the article, Lev Romanov.

According to the report, "the destructive power of this machine weighing 15 tons is achieved using special rocket engines, with which you can throw up to 700 kg of explosives at a distance of 500 m."

According to the expert, a big disadvantage of the UR-77 is the poor booking of the chassis.

“The first combat use of the UR-77 took place in October 2014. Then the “mountain snakes” were used during fierce fighting in the eastern outskirts of Damascus Jobar, ”the author reports.



There is no exact information on when and in what quantity Ur-77 were delivered to the CAP, in open sources. They were seen in the second half of 2014.

“It seems that they were literally put a few then. Which, in principle, is understandable: then cargoes were delivered to Syria from Russia by sea on large landing ships of the naval fleet. It is also known that such installations were used during the battles for Zabadani in August 2015, ”the agency quoted an expert on the Syrian conflict, Yuri Lyamin.

According to the author’s data, “during the battles for Palmyra, the Syrians used the UR-83P installation, which, in fact, is a portable version of the Serpent Gorynych”.



“This system, apparently, has just recently appeared in government forces. And, if we used ZIL-131 for its transportation, then UR was mounted on the Sadko GAZ-3308 truck widely used in these places, ”Romanov notes.

      CAA has more weapons. And if you also prepare the maintenance staff as it should, then this is an even more formidable force. Gradually, the Syrians became the strongest army in the region. And with great combat experience.

        CAA has more weapons.

        I have known "Serpent Gorynych" since the late 60s of the last century. I saw it in action and was amazed at its ability to clear mines and create passages in a minefield. Unfortunately, the troops of those years had very little of this means of mass destruction, tk. except for mines in the zone of its destruction, all living things were destroyed, on a decent area. Thus, it could be used against manpower and light armored vehicles, however, like "Buratino", which was once created with only one purpose - to degass the contaminated area. So this weapon is not new at all - it is almost 50 years old.

      I do not see any problems. Then all these buildings will still be demolished to build new ones. Now demolition will be easier.
      Regrettably, this is a saving for the future.
      In short, having removed their head, they do not cry through their hair. Now we need to win. At any cost, for the price of loss will be at any higher.

          For what reasons it was a little "classified" I do not know, but I personally knew "The Serpent Gorynych" in the late 60s from a special film for officers. Its impact shocked me and I remembered it for the rest of my life, although I did not see it in the army and the sappers kept silent about it. Yes, and I did not have an entrance to the pits of the sapper company, I was not allowed in.

          UZP-72 charge without packaging of 1200 kg.
          The charge consists of two parallel threads, each of which has 9 sections. The length of each section is 10.3 m., Diameter 7 cm.
          On the running methp sections have 4 kg BB which provides the required 8 kg. per meter of charge length.

    Initially, the Serpent Gorynych was intended to overcome minefields by equipment and infantry, in other words, quickly making a passage in a minefield 5-6 meters wide. On the offensive.

    In the "guts" are not thick sticks, but an explosive like a plastid. the length of one "gut" is 10 meters. They are twisted together with threaded connections. One complete set of 10 "guts", total weight about 1 ton, length 100 meters. The jet engine, which pulls all this DUR 77. The main thing is that the brake cable does not come off, otherwise this "kite" will fly forward, but no one knows where :) I studied all this in the late 80s. As said above, there are many more interesting things, we will hear and see more about the combat use. Much has been developed during the Soviet era.

      If earlier the demining installation was considered as a means for making passages in minefields, then during the period of the Chechen companies UR-77 began to be actively used to inflict fire damage on the enemy. Terribly effective when used correctly in urban combat. there is a sad experience of "friendly fire" with such an installation in Grozny.
      The brake rope has a huge margin of safety - with one thread the tanks started, it did not even stretch.

      Syrians brake the rope is uncoupled (in the city in the ruins it’s an obstacle to them)

      the rocket powder engine is not cut off, the driver does not feed the car back in order to align the charge in a straight line.
      All in higher mathematics

      Having determined the distance to the building with cockroaches, the operator commander raises the tower installation with guides to the desired elevation angle and issues a command to launch the charge from the control panel.
      The rocket goes off the guide and flies along a ballistic trajectory, pulling a flexible cable with explosive (but already without a cable)

      After that, the commander-operator issues a command from the control panel to undermine the charge ...
      a few seconds and the disinfection is completed, along the way, the passage / approach to the building that was occupied by cockroaches
