China conducted a test launch of the Dongfeng 41 (DF-41) ICBM with a split head for individual targeting. The US Department of Defense reported on April 19 about the fixation by space of the flight of two warheads. The three-stage Dunfeng-41 solid-fuel rocket has an estimated mass of up to 80 tons and is capable of carrying individual-guided combat units from 6 to 10 to ranges up to 15 thousand km. Accuracy of fire (KVO) 100-200 m. The mass of the head part - 1200 kg (can be equipped with a monoblock warhead 300 CT or six 200 kg warheads and 30 CT power). It is believed that the nuclear warheads for the new ICBM are a “transitional product” until more advanced - compact, lightweight and powerful - warheads are developed. The rocket provides for mine and mobile basing - with autonomous launchers modeled on the Russian complexes "Topol" and "Yars", as well as on railway platforms.



The creation of the DF-41 was conducted intermittently from 1986, the first flight tests began in the 2012 year. The first throwing test with shooting from the transport-launch container DF-41 in the railway-based variant was carried out on December 5 of the year 2015. The product is in the final stages of development, official statements about its adoption by the PLA have not been received yet.

Iran conducted an unannounced launch of the latest carrier rocket, which, according to the Pentagon, hides the test of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Based on telemetric tracking data, US intelligence agencies believe that the launch of the Simorgh space launch vehicle, carried out on April 19, was partly successful because it did not go into orbit. Since the beginning of the year, Iran has already conducted a series of tests of ballistic missiles and announced its intention to continue to develop its missile program.

In the United States at the end of March at the White Sands (White Sands Missile Range) test site in New Mexico, they conducted test launches of anti-aircraft missiles from Stinger MANPADS with a new Multi-Launcher.

The latter includes 15 guides capable of firing one large-caliber missile or several so-called ultra-small interceptor missiles (Miniature Hit-to-Kill - MHTK). On the same test site April 4 conducted their successful launches.

MNTK is a rocket 61 cm long, 3,8 cm in diameter and weighing about 2,3 kg, designed to intercept and destroy enemy low-flying targets, such as tactical missiles, artillery and mortar shells, at a distance from 3 to 4 km. It is equipped with a semi-active guidance system that directs it to a target illuminated by ground-based radar.

The Indian Air Force 11 of April conducted successful tests of a home-to-air missile designed for the Akash air defense missile system. The missile launched from a test complex at the Chadirpur test site (Orissa) hit the Banshee drone (Banshee), also created by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) unit of the Indian Defense Ministry.




It can reach speeds in the 2,8-3,5 Mach, is equipped with a 60 kg warhead and can hit air targets, including combat aircraft, cruise missiles, air-to-ground missiles, at a distance of up to 25 km. The “Akash” air defense system (Akash) was adopted by the Air Force and the Air Force of India in 2015.
The US Air Force Command, when developing the next generation of combat aircraft, decided to abandon both the very concept of "fighter" and the numbering of generations. In the future, a promising aircraft will be characterized as a "family of systems", which should perform a wide range of tasks, including striking ground targets, gaining air superiority, countering satellites and electronic warfare. The list of requirements for the new device will be formed after analyzing the level of development of modern armory developments and their impact on the ways of conducting future hostilities.



It is believed that the development of a new "family of systems" will take from 20 to 30 years. A new device will not be created by a single project. Instead, it is planned to conclude contracts with leading manufacturers of weapons and military equipment for the development of independent technologies, which can then be combined and combined with each other. All these technologies should make it possible to participate in long-range combat operations, deliver a large number of ammunition to the desired point and launch them far beyond the limits of the enemy air defense systems. As part of the new concept, the US is already developing a promising strategic B-21 bomber and “flying arsenals”. It is assumed that these aircraft will be able to perform various tasks both individually and jointly, effectively complementing each other's capabilities. It is also planned to include carriers of a qualitatively new weaponry, including energy weapons and hypersonic missiles, into the "family of systems".

The United States Air Force placed an order with Northrop Grumman for the production of a Large Aircraft Infrared Counter Measures for Military Aircraft (LAIRCM).



The system should automatically detect missile launches, determine the degree of their threat to the aircraft, accompany and, if necessary, destroy the approaching target using a laser beam. It is planned that it will be installed on all large-sized aircraft of the US Air Force during their modernization.

The Portuguese company TEKEVER Group is launching a new version of the AR3 NET RAY UAV, which has increased engine power by 33%, an extended payload range, including a radar of the sea surface survey.



The device is designed to perform several types of marine and terrestrial tasks, including reconnaissance, observation, target designation, environmental monitoring, communications. With a length of 140 cm, a wingspan of 320 cm and a weight of 14 kg, it can fly with a range of up to 120 km and a duration of about 10 hours. The launch of the UAV is carried out from a catapult placed on various platforms from small vessels to large ships.

In Iran, 12, April, conducted field tests of a high-altitude reconnaissance-impact UAV "Hamasseh" (Hamasseh) of domestic development.



The device solved complex tasks together with other Mohajir (UAH), Shahid (Shahed), Ababil (Ababil) UAVs belonging to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps during the Payambar-e Azam.

The US Navy research laboratory is developing single-use micro UAVs (Close-in Covert Autonomous Disposable Aircraft-CICADA). His concept involves creating cheap, ultra-small UAV-controlled GPS systems that can be launched in large numbers and use microelectronic devices in the form of printed circuit boards for various purposes embedded in their structural elements (wing surfaces, fuselage) as payloads. The constructive elements of the micro-UAV contain printed circuit boards embedded in them in compliance with all the requirements of aerodynamics.



Due to their small size and the absence of an engine, gliders based on the CICADA principle become hardly noticeable and almost invulnerable to enemy air defense systems, which makes them very useful when used as repeaters, radio jammers, airborne contaminants, etc. in tactical level.

The United States Naval Officer Development School created a quadrocopter capable of landing on the water and taking off from it. The device can be equipped with a hydroacoustic system for detecting submarines. The device, called Aqua-Quad, works on solar energy.



It is built on a four-beam scheme with the location at the ends of the rays of electric motors with propellers with a diameter of 360 millimeters each. Between the rays are 20 solar panels. The mass of the device is about three kilograms. The Aqua-Quad flight time is about 25 minutes. Being on the water, the device can operate for several days, playing the role of a sonar buoy.

The American company FLIR presented a new compact thermal imager “Boson”, which can be installed on almost any class of equipment, including unmanned vehicles and UAVs.



The size of the camera without a lens is 21х21х11 mm, weight - 7,5 g. The device operates in the 7,5-13,5-mic wave band. It is capable of shooting in two resolutions: 640x512 and 320x256 pixels. 15 lens options with different viewing angles are supplied with the camera as an option. The imager uses a 3,3 power supply in the device, the power consumption of the device - 500 milliwatts. Boson can operate at temperatures from -40 to + 80 degrees Celsius. For the processing of data in the device meets the new processor Myriad 2.

US Navy in September with. will receive the largest in the world, the first multi-purpose nuclear aircraft carrier "Gerald Ford". Its length is 332 m, weight is 100 thousand tons.



It is planned to accommodate about 4400 people on board. and 75 units aviation technicians. The Gerald Ford is expected to become the runway for F-35 fighters. According to preliminary estimates, 25% more planes will be able to fly from its board than from aircraft carriers that are currently part of the US Navy at the present time.

    If these figures are to be believed, then Dongfeng 41 surpasses our Poplars, Yars and even the newest Frontier by head. I do not believe that they were able to make such a breakthrough and make such highly effective mixtures for solid fuel engines that they surpassed even the leaders in this field - the Americans.

                An additional contract worth 2001 million, signed by 400, provided for the purchase of another 8 C-300PMU-1 divisions with 32 PU and 198 48Н6Е missiles. The acquired complexes from this party were deployed in the Taiwan Strait area and around Beijing.


                And even earlier, the signature on the picture, they say, the C-300 complex, located in a suburb of Beijing.

                  I remember very well, since I wrote this article. But how does this contradict the fact that Beijing is protected not only by Russian anti-aircraft systems? Beijing is covered not only by ours, but also by Chinese air defense systems and air defense systems, for example, a satellite image of the HQ-9A garrison in one of the districts of Beijing. A number of signs show that this is not C-300P. I can distribute other pictures, all have coordinates, i.e. they are easy to tie to the terrain and check yourself if there is such a desire.

      And what exactly is superior? For example, a missile throwing 3 individual warheads of 300kt per 11000km, is it inferior to a missile throwing one such warhead at 15000km? Moreover, if the first is in service, the second is still in development. smile

        I never believe their numbers. Yes, here the missile’s weight is not great, but if we take that the missile’s weight is 80 tons, and we had the closest analogue to the Bark missile of 80 tons, then it should have had a maximum of 9 thousand km. And then 15 thousand km. And the maximum is always with one warhead. So progress on the face.

      I don’t understand how it surpasses our missiles. Poplar - weight 46,5 tons, abandoned 1,2 tons. Here for the same cast weight, the mass of the rocket is 80 tons. About Yars and Boundary I generally keep quiet.

        This missile cannot be compared with the governor at all. Nothing like that at all. Abandoned weight is 7 times less with a mass of 2,5 times less. + one liquid, the other solid fuel. Well, the age difference is just some 40 years.

      I have to admit that China has a powerful ICBM capable of
      Hit them with any potential adversary.

      What figures have shown you this superiority?
      The only thing that really is more is the distance.
      300Kt warhead or 6 to 30 Kt warhead. - ridiculously simple.
      True, it is indicated that this is a temporary solution, but how much temporary is not clear.
      And how do you determine the prospects or superiority of ICBMs?

      I believe several parameters are important:
      1) the ability to reach any point of a potential enemy. And as for the Chinese, he is the only one for us - the Yankees. 10 km is enough for this.
      2) missile defense system, namely maneuvering blocks in several planes (pitch and yaw), snag, etc.
      3) castable net weight. They have a ceiling of 300 Kt, our mbr throw much more. The same Yars carries 3-4 warheads of 150-300 ct each. with a starting weight an order of magnitude lower (80 at 49 tons).

      And there is also the speed of the booster stages, deviation from the target and God still what parameters.
      Based on these 3 points, on two of them we are far ahead!

      Yo-mayo ... Once the States decided to make the F-35, saying that this is generation 5 and the aircraft will be a fighter and a bomber. They made a lot of money for the program and are still making it. Derban from Derbans.
      And now they are going to make an aircraft of an indefinite generation (well, the fifth-generation stone flower from the F-35 did not come out) and to perform ANY tasks. Those. that the infantry comb, that the satellite to bring down - all one.

    But - similar work is being carried out in our country as well, I don’t think that we will give the Chinese and Americans in these matters much ahead of Russia ...

    Well, an aircraft carrier ... What if the Amer economy has muchОbetter opportunities than ours ... However, the goal is huge ... Even in the oceans you can’t hide much ...

Whether their supersonic !!! a submarine, or attempts to create a fifth-generation fighter without mastering the engines for its serial fighters for the fourth. Russia usually underestimates the performance characteristics of its weapons, Matrasia - overstates. And the Chinese write just fantastic parameters. So what?

      The DF-41 had seven successful test launches,
      Their 2 type 5 generation fighters (single-engine and twin-engine) fly - at the same test stage as the PAK-FA.
      Carriers are being built, missile destroyers and frigates are being lowered from the stocks,
      as in Russia boats. A missile boat (ocean) they have - a cloud.

        Their 2 type 5 generation fighters (single-engine and twin-engine) fly - at the same test stage as the PAK-FA.
        Carriers are being built, missile destroyers and frigates are being lowered from the stocks,
        as in Russia boats. A missile boat (ocean) they have - a cloud.

        Do not wear pink glasses: China is a true, full-fledged military superpower.
        It scares me too, but it's stupid to deny the facts.

        5th generation fighters on our 4th generation engines? Well, it's powerful)

        Fifth generation, fifth generation, these are expensive and few aircraft. But with 4 + and 4 ++, something is not very good for them. So there are reasonable doubts about the quality of their 5-th generation.

        Carriers are being built, missile destroyers and frigates are being lowered from the stocks,


        Aircraft carriers are building, but they cannot build a normal air defense system. Let's compare the number of systems like C-300 with us and the Chinese. About S-400 I will keep silent.

        A missile boat (ocean) they have - a cloud.


        And the DPRK even has torpedoes, horror.


        Do not wear pink glasses: China is a true, full-fledged military superpower.


        China is a warrior of disturbed proportions. Strong ground (surface) component without good air cover.

      Chinese dragon painted a paper tiger - a solid rocket with parameters superior to liquid? Something that reminds me. Whether their supersonic !!! a submarine, or attempts to create a fifth-generation fighter without mastering the engines for its serial fighters for the fourth. Russia usually underestimates the performance characteristics of its weapons, Matrasia - overstates. And the Chinese write just fantastic parameters. So what? What if the enemy gets scared and surrenders without a fight? And check the true performance characteristics of weapons do not have to.

      It is absolutely nothing superior to liquid and even not very modern solid-fuel rockets. Not at all.

    The Americans are creating a tactical missile defense system. A logical step, the battlefield must be covered with such domes. First, important objects, and over time, missile defense vehicles can be attached to battalions and companies. True, the price is appropriate, therefore, as the development progresses, either anti-missile missiles will become cheaper or the systems will become missile-cannon-type our "Armor" or hyperboloids in general.
    P.S. And to which fleet will their new aircraft carrier be assigned? Probably he will not sail far and will not have full duty on duty, but tests of the F-35 wing, debugging of all systems.

    But about the acoustic buoy on a quadrocopter - hooked. After all, you can keep them a few dozen, even on a small anti-submarine. Only to increase seaworthiness I would take disposable cylinders, inflated during landing and discarded during take-off.

    In the United States, at the end of March, at the White Sands Missile Range test site in New Mexico, anti-aircraft missile launches were launched from Stinger MANPADS from the new Multi-Mission Launcher


    Judging by the size of the launcher and the image of the rocket itself, this is the AIM-9 Sidewinder

      It happens that only the one who does nothing is not mistaken. Look also in the photo, where we are talking about the Iranian missile, there it also does not correspond. Write to the moderator and change photos, but otherwise the publication is quite up to standard. good

    A little bit on the topic of military-technical news:
    just today infa appeared that by the fall of the KLA with the Ministry of Defense they are going to sign a contract for the supply of the installation party of T-50 to the troops. On June 20, the PAK-FA will take its eighth flight aboard, which is as close as possible to the requirements of the military in terms of the 5th generation, which has all the systems.
    The installation batch will include a squadron (12 aircraft). 9 and 10 boards will be delivered by autumn, are already on the assembly tape.
    Most notably, the dates for the engines of the second stage were indicated: this is 25-27 years.
    I am waiting for those who screamed at the top of their appearance.

    P.S. I’ll add from myself: all the same, the news is extremely pleasant, suggests that the problems with the systems have been overcome. How interesting will they be tested? who is in the know?

    The American idea of ​​"flying arsenals" is interesting.
    In principle, worked out to complete a routine operation
    refueling in the air.
    Why it is impossible to recharge with the help of long manipulator cranes
    fighters and attack planes with missiles and bombs right
    in the air from a huge transport plane?

          The question is not for me, I have not patented. This was done by EMNIP retired pilots. Maybe they won't succeed, or maybe later everyone will say: "Why didn't they do it before?" Personally, I am attracted by another development of retirees: an automatic tractor for civil aircraft that supplies energy to the aircraft almost until the very moment of launch. This saves a lot of expensive aviation fuel. Many airlines have shown interest. The next step IMHO is a catapult on the runway for civil liners. wink

          By the way, there is such an American company DRS which now belongs to the Italian Leonardo-Finmeccanica. So she is engaged in, among other things, finding interesting military startups or projects and helping them enter the US military market. If they connect, then things will go faster.

            This requires large flying platforms - create arsenals so that the plane and the platform balance their speeds - in fact, the fighter’s airborne landing on the platform, and there the arms manipulators with cartridges will hang bombs and missiles on the plane and simultaneously charge it.

              Easier: a Boeing flies, and above it at the same speed the F-16.
              The manipulator takes a rocket from a tank on the back of a Boeing and
              attaches to the pylon under the wing of the F-16.
