In the US Army began testing the Israeli system of active protection of armored vehicles

40
The ground forces and US marines have begun testing the Israeli active defense system (SAZ) of the Trophy equipment, reports Popular Mechanics.




“SAZ Trophy was developed by the Israeli defense company Rafael Advanced Defense Systems. It is designed to protect military equipment from missiles and shells. Trophy includes a radar station, a control computer and two self-loading launchers. The system provides 360-degree protection: as soon as the radar detects a flying missile, the computer calculates its trajectory and gives the command to the launchers to destroy the projectile ", - said in a statement.

The installation shoots metal balls into the flying rocket that destroy the target. But first, “as a humane alternative, the system tries to knock the rocket off the path by turning on the interference for the radio signals that control the projectile.”

“By the way, the Trophy is the only active defense system adopted for service and used several times in combat. Now the Israeli Pentagon is seriously interested in Israeli development, ”the resource writes.



As part of the test program, the Americans rented 4 test kits from the Israelis, which are installed on Tanks Abrams and Stryker armored vehicles.

        Firstly, why not? Secondly, why is it hidden? Regular procurement contract.
        If KAZ is really good, and the Americans themselves could not do better, then why not ..?
        Reasons for indignation, I do not see at all. Some honestly made and sold, while others thought about buying. What are we making noise?
        And - the fact that the "coffin - Abrash" has long been in need of serious modernization in the field of protection is a fact.

          Israel is now the world's foremost start-up country. So instead of wanting to throw mud at Israel, our leaders would not hurt to study the experience and apply it in Russia and be sure to establish cooperation with Israeli technology centers and research institutes, and not build Khrenolkovo and not pour money into Rusnano, the costs of which are colossal, but consideration results need a nuclear microscope.

    Maybe theirs "Abrams" will really become less vulnerable? Only ours have already prepared a "Hook" with double ammunition (bicaliber)!
    So we will "look". "Vampire" is also good, but you need to shoot in pairs - RPG-7 and a little later - "Vampire". It is clear that it is more difficult, it is clear that security is getting better - but ...

    If we consider that the development of weapons in Israel takes place on US grants, and part of the components are manufactured in the USA, which is beneficial for Israel in terms of the cost reduction of such a technologically complex and expensive process, but it is not beneficial in terms of promoting such products for export. Not only do Americans get promising and original designs from Israeli defense firms, they produce a number of components that Israel itself cannot manufacture or is not allowed by the same States, they also do not allow the export of these jointly developed products. The most striking example of this is the Lavi fighter.

    Here is a wonderful niche for the BMPT with the promised 57mm gun in caliber, fires with a 10 km burst of Abrashu leaving only bald armor, and then with a rocket so that it doesn’t dabble in the hat.

        From an interview with Oleg Sienko- "We want to put on a new platform a ship's gun of 57 mm caliber with a range of 16 kilometers." the director of UVZ knows the performance characteristics of the cannon once said this, so I don't believe in 16 km of aimed fire either, but half of what was stated.

          If we assume that the Earth is perfectly round, without folds of terrain and vegetation, then a modern tank can be seen at a distance of 8 - 8,5 km. Even in this case, direct-fire shooting at 16 km is an extremely difficult matter.)) It seems that the 16 km declared by UVZ is still the maximum range along a ballistic trajectory.

      Forget about the 57 mm gun, we won’t take it into service.

    probably it’s not necessary to say that there are ATGMs of this kind.

    The advent of new anti-tank systems has been brewing for a long time. And this means that it’s too early to dismantle conventional anti-tank guns and ammunition.
