    What do you mean "will be". This mounting was shown back in 2009. If hermes-A is still not ready then there is a severe problem with the management that needs a stalin-esque purge. The time for "will" is long gone, now there is "ASAP".

    Placing empty containers on hardpoint does not equal missile development and integration on combat platform you know. Hermes is still not ready judging by recent reports and seems it wont enter service for a while, hopefully development will be finished though 2017 and IOC will start in 2018. Again, hopefully. Some firing tests were held in 2015. and 2016. that is what we know.

    Here you can gasp how far back whole project we call Hermes actually goes: http://rbase.new-factoria.ru/missile/wobb/hermes/hermes.shtml
    So you're saying the situation is even more effed up since the development is going for 13 FUCKING YEARS already? Tanks are developed and put into service faster.

    Actually Hermes-A was first time mentioned in 1995. in magazine "Авиация - Kосмонавтикa".

    A heavy ATGM that is developed for 23 years. Simply unreal. I wont be surprised if plasma cannons exist by the time the Hermes A enters service.

    Hahaha... I have a book from KPB tula from 2001 with mockups of the Hermes missile... do you think that means anything?

    If there is a will, and i hope there is, Hermes could be used on Su-34/Su-30 same way Brimstone is used on Typhoons.

    Would be interesting if they developed a smaller free fall model without the rocket booster to be released from high altitude from UCAVs... with a glider wing package or something.

    So you're saying the situation is even more effed up since the development is going for 13 FUCKING YEARS already? Tanks are developed and put into service faster.

    Grow up child.

    WTF is the point of putting into service a missile with a range of 20km when the in service attack helos that would carry it can't detect targets at more than 8-10km at best?

    Right now the Mi-28NM is getting near production and its mast mounted radar should be able to detect larger targets at 20-25km (ie buildings and bridges etc as well as tanks and IFVs). So now it starts to become useful... but even if it was ready right no in service aircraft could even use its capabilities... Vikhr is in service and much cheaper... as is Krisantema and Ataka.

    They could've put it into service on the Su-25SM3, Su-30MK,, or on truck mounted launchers while being guided by UAVs.

    I was also very keen to know Hermes project status. Because all i hear is talk and talk... But i have seen Brimstone capabilities: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXyYXqX4Beo&t=49s
    If i were a person responsible for Hermes project development i would wait for Brimstone to be fielded and see its actual real capabilities and then finish Hermes development with equal if not better capabilities. I suspect this is probably what is happening. They are waiting to see how Brimstone will turn up to be and will adjust Hermes capabilities based on that?

    I don't think so.

    Hermes is being developed for a customer... the Russian military.

    I very much doubt the Russian military will be saying to KBP that whatever they make of Hermes it has to be better than Brimstone...

    the russian military will have a fairly specific set of requirements in terms of speed, guidance options, range and effect on various types of target types... and they will all be unrelated to Brimstone.

    Vikhr-1 combat debut in Syria. Some footage of launches from 8 km.
