ATGMs and RPGs for infantry - a thread for rebels around the world to choose their ATGM supplier.

Recommended Posts

From the recent international ATGM firing competition and Spike users' club conference:



The competition was between 7 users, and the Dutch took 1st place, giving them the right to fire off the 30,000th Spike missile to be produced.


But that's not interesting, right? What caught my eye is the little piece they wrote on the Spike LR II, which tells all about the same known info but adds that the missile climbs to an altitude of 240 meters above ground before entering a steep dive phase (which was earlier said to be 70° against AFVs).

RAFAEL debuts the FireFly, a new member of the Spike family of precision munitions. This one is the lightest of the bunch and is somewhat similar to the Harop/Harpy in its purpose - It's a drone that can be used either as a loitering munition or recon drone. 

It consists of two electric motors with a flight duration of 15 minutes, and 3 warheads. 


Hopefully this will find its way into the IDF, and more importantly, into the use of regular infantry brigades and not just elite units.

The MMP is marketed as having a 4km range but during trials aimed at testing the system beyond it's nominal conditions of utilization they managed to hit a target at 5km twice (out of how many launch?).

In Ukraine, the production of the RPV-16 infantry flamethrower - copies of RPO-A, was organised




The bmpd comment. The RPV-16, developed for a production in Ukraine, is practically a complete copy of the Soviet RPO-A Shmel infantry flamethrower developed by the Design Bureau of Instrument Making (KBP Tula) and adopted by the Soviet Army in 1988. Apparently, the organization of the production of RPO-A in Ukraine is based on the appropriate mobilization reserve of Soviet times.

Russia has concluded contracts for the supply of Qatar with "Kornet-E" ATGMs, grenade launchers and small arms

   Russian Ambassador to Qatar Nurmahmad Kholov in an interview published on July 21, 2018 with TASS reported that Russia and Qatar signed contracts for the supply of Russian anti-tank missile systems (KTRTs) "Kornet-E", grenade launchers and small arms to the Qatar forces.

Maybe some of those Kornets are for vehicle on the left (Yörük in AT variant)

Ukrainian ATGMs via andrei's blog:







   Re-mix of old Soviet songs. I like how Turchinov claims that Ukrainian ATGMs are better than Russian (they are basically the same outdated commie systems). They should take guts from Javelins and put new body over it and call it new Ukrainian ATGM to create massive forum butthurts.

      Hello, my friends and Kharkovites, take a sit and be ready for your brains to start to work - we are going to tell you a terrible secret of how to tell apart Soviet tanks that actually works like GLORIOUS T-80 and The Mighty T-72 from Kharkovites attempt to make a tank - the T-64. Many of capitalists Westerners have hard time understanding what tank is in front of them, even when they know smart words like "Kontakt-5" ERA. Ignoramus westerners!
         Because you are all were raised in several hundreds years old capitalism system all of you are blind consumer dummies, that need big noisy labels and shiny colorful things to be attached to product X to be sold to your ignorant heads and wallets, thats why we will need to start with basics. BASICS, DA? First - how to identify to which tank "family" particular MBT belongs to - to T-64 tree, or T-72 line, or Superior T-80 development project, vehicles that don't have big APPLE logo on them for you to understand what is in front of you. And how you can do it in your home without access to your local commie tank nerd? 
         Easy! Use this Putin approved guide "How to tell appart different families of Soviet and Russian tanks from each other using simple and easy to spot external features in 4 steps: a guide for ignorant western journalists and chairborn generals to not suck in their in-depth discussions on the Internet".
      Chapter 1: Where to look, what to see.
      T-64 - The Ugly Kharkovite tank that doesn't work 
         We will begin with T-64, a Kharkovite attempt to make a tank, which was so successful that Ural started to work on their replacement for T-64 known as T-72. Forget about different models of T-64, let's see what is similar between all of them.

      T-72 - the Mighty weapon of Workers and Peasants to smash westerners
         Unlike tank look-alike, made by Kharkovites mad mans, T-72 is true combat tank to fight with forces of evil like radical moderate barbarians and westerners. Thats why we need to learn how identify it from T-64 and you should remember it's frightening lines!

      The GLORIOUS T-80 - a Weapon to Destroy and Conquer bourgeois countries and shatter westerners army
         And now we are looking at the Pride of Party and Soviet army, a true tank to spearhead attacks on decadent westerners, a tank that will destroy countries by sucking their military budgets and dispersing their armies in vortex of air, left from high-speed charge by the GLORIOUS T-80!

      T-14 ARMATA 
              This thread is about glorious russian MBT T-14, known as "Armada", "T-95", "black eagle", "T-99" and other stupid Western names given to Object 148 (T-14 in some recent documents). Here is number of images connected to that vehicle.

      Official model of unknown "artillery vehicle". Yeah, Putin, we know that this is T-14. Note Gatling gun on turret right side.
      Artist impression of T-14 based on known model, by Fyodor Podporin. 

      T-14 will use Relikt ERA, which is considerable improvement over Kontakt-5 in resisting to tandem HEAT warheads and EFPs.

      Side skirts would be thicker on a real vehicle, i think. Relikt have AFAIK bigger size than Kontakt-5 ERA build-in blocks.

      Whole album with renders: 
      Video of same render from same artist:

            People expect that tank would have turret weapon system like what you see on the BMP-3 "Bakhcha-U" turret - a lot of weapons in one turret for one gunner to work with. T-14 is rumored to be equipped with 30 (or even 57) mm autocannon, 4-6 barrel gatling type MG/HMG, new 125 (2A82) or even 152 mm (2A83) smoothbore cannons. Turret is unmanned, crew of 3 would be located in frontal part of hull, behind very serious frontal armor inside of compartment, well protected from all directions. Cannon would be loaded by new autoloading device. I hope that Burevestnik is working on them, those guys managed to make 100 mm Naval gun with RoF of 300 shots per minute.
            I really like how turret looks, but i don't understand why there is such a big turret "busket" for unmanned turret with all ammo placed inside of hull in special armored housing. Also, i don't see gunner sight and proposed FSC radar on 3D model (i assume that panoramic sight is for commander). Laser sensors on 3D model are from T-90A variant of "Shtora".
            Some officials mentioned works on new active protection system, that consist of powerfull radar station, that can work on "long ranges" and engage incoming projectiles (missiles) with that gatling MG. Will this system survive development stage and be presented on serial tanks is unknown. Although turret for T-15 Armata-based IFV already was shown with new APS "Afganit".
            If you pay attention you may see that artist used T-80 rollers for Armata chassis, and this is not a mistake - according to some sources Armata heavy chassis will use T-80 or T-80-like rollers to save weight. And looking at rear part of that tank you may notice a engine deck from gas-turbine equipped version of the T-80, which can be mistake becuase MoD want Armata with new ~1500 HP diesel engine.

      i personally support it, by finding the KGB Felix Dzerzhinsky greatly improved state scurrility both inside the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and abroad (their jurisdiction was only domestic, but they kept the internationally influential people safe at night)   a dedicated defender of both the Revolution and all the Soviet peoples     what do you think of this news?
