    Has implications about rate of fire and performance of the land units that receive it I guess.

    Also implications about rate of production of the systems and how quickly the upgrade can be deployed.

    the missile doesnt have mid-finns like older buk missiles, maybe 8 tube hot launched shtil?

    Naval vertical launched Shtil also doesn't have fins like older Buks, so most probably Buk-M3 and Shtil VLS have same new missile.

    Dont you ever get tired of trolling. All you are doing is lowering this forums credibility.

    HQ-16 is based off of Buk system. Yes, similar on how they increased number of launch missiles but design is a tad different. As well, there isnt much you can do to change look and still carry same amount of missiles.

    Weak.

    The Russian plans for unification of weapons for their Navy, and Army and Air Force are extensive and include the Buk, which is a Russian Army and Navy system that is not used by the Russian AF.

    The fact that new Chinese missiles look like new Russian missiles is no surprise because the new Chinese missiles were developed WITH Russian help based on new Russian missile design.

    Next you will be crowing about India being able to make Su-30MKIs that are better than the Su-27, or indeed Brahmos that is better than Yakhont. Rolling Eyes

    You do know that the S-300P, S-300V, S-350, and S-400 are all tube-launched, right?

    Want to know why the Buk-M3 can be tube-launched, like the KM-SAM and the HQ-16, while earlier tactical SAMs like the Kub and Buk-M1/2 could not?

    SARH guidance.

    SARH guidance, depending on the SAM, either always requires or sometimes requires the seeker to be able to see the target to lock on prior to launch, depending on the launch mode and the guidance system design.

    Which is, you know, hard to do inside of a sealed container.

    It's entirely unsurprising that the new active radar missile for the Buk-M3 is now inside of a launch tube.

    And seriously, what's innovative about the HQ-16 TEL? It's basically a shrunk version of the HQ-9 TEL, which is no different in concept than the MAZ-543 based TEL for the S-300P/400.

    Because they can be launched with either programmable or datalinked midcourse guidance. Standard is the same way.

    how the hell is semi-active hominghead getting a lock on in 30+ km range?
    there is a bit of preprogramed trajectory and command guidance in every buk missile. you are talking nonsense.
    and then how the chinese using older buk missiles use them in containers?
    relax ,take a breath ,

    - the containers also enable: more energetic fuel to be used in the missile because the missiles are less exposed to the harsh inviroment and there is less missfire and longer shelf life!

    -faster replacement rate , look at hq-16 ,easy to handle ,square rig around the container.

    By having a powerful CW illumination function in the engagement radar.

    There can be for most RF-guided SAMs but in many of them it isn't necessarily required. Block the seeker head and you eliminate the LOBL option.

    Rpg type 7v wrote:and then how the chinese using older buk missiles use them in containers?
    Vertical launch and encapsulated missiles gives you a bigger dead zone around the TEL. Exposed launch on a trainable TEL shrinks your dead zone, which can be useful.

    Most combat rounds are stored in sealed containers anyway and aren't trucked around on TELARs all the time.

    how the hell is semi-active hominghead getting a lock on in 30+ km range?
    The R-33S can guide itself to a target 120km away... so when the missile is 90km from the launch aircraft and 30km from the target the signal from the radar that it is homing on has travelled 150km from the launch aircraft to the target and back to the missile seeker.

    - the containers also enable: more energetic fuel to be used in the missile because the missiles are less exposed to the harsh inviroment and there is less missfire and longer shelf life!
    What has the energy level of the fuel have to do with tube launch or not tube launch?

    Tube launch has no effect on the chances of missfires.

    -faster replacement rate , look at hq-16 ,easy to handle ,square rig around the container.
    Yet they will still load them one tube at a time... just like the old model loads the missiles one missile at a time...

    Easier to handle? Still need a crane. Still have specific fixed attachment points. I think if an accident happened and a missile was dropped or damaged it would be put aside and destroyed rather than used... whether it was in a tube or not.

    let me elaborate you can get a lock on but with pesa radar from tel is best and faster then launch immediately , you dont need to wait for missile to warm up and get a lock ,you launch using command guidance and the missile will catch the signal eventually, unless the target is very close. so container dont matter in this context.

    specialised attacment points can be made on the container for handling unlike on a missile.

    Actually in terms of energy efficiency it is probably better to have an arm launcher as a missile pointed at the target allows all the rocket propellent burn to be used to accelerate the missile in the direction of the target.

    We have already discussed the virtues of cold launch. but at the end of the day the difference between the actual missiles used has more effect on performance than the launch method used, so being able to continue to use modified existing launchers with launch tubes attached has economic reasons rather than performance reasons.

    The value of having Shtils in the land and naval based versions the same right down to the tubes they are sealed in makes a lot of sense but making older existing platforms/vehicles compatible with the new missile also makes a lot of sense too.

    then go reread my previous post.
    All missiles have internal batteries and gyros and internal navigation systems (INS) that need to be updated in preparation for launch, there is no evidence the new BUKs need less time to prepare for launch in terms of electronics than the old ones... tube or arm launched.

    specialised attacment points can be made on the container for handling unlike on a missile.
    Missiles generally already have specialised attachment points... that is how they are attached to the launch rail, or moved about in the under deck ammo handling system or stored in rotary magazines or raised above deck to the arm launcher ready to fire.

    the container is not sitting on the ground its directed towards expected interception point and the launch is hot anyway , quick reaction time and no energy lost- so no problem there

    We can assume that the use of tube based land based BUK is the same as the vertically launched Shtil-1, (no advantage plus added complications if not), So we can therefore assume that the newest BUK can be launched vertically because the Shtil-1 is launched vertically.

    The difference is that the BUK might need to be turned to face the target it is launched at meaning it is launched directly at its target which means no manouvering at launch which is most efficient in terms of energy but also potentially creates a delay of up to 2-3 seconds while the missiles (and radar) are slewed towards the target.

    Not perfect, but not the end of the world either.

    I rather suspect the main reason for the land based missiles to have tubes for launching is so the small tail surfaces can be folded and only extend as they leave the launch tube meaning the missile tubes can be mounted closer together and also in double rows without the risk of control surface damage on launch by impacting another missiles control surfaces... they can flex or move under load at launch.

    missiles that attach and have this point are generaly heavier then conteiner ones.
    missiles are nimble especially when at full load , and besides containers can have bigger hooks and other un-aerodynamic attacments unlike in missiles.
    This is just silly... the attachment points could simple be bolt holes using explosive bolts that detonate after launch and have zero drag.

    Nice ... 

    SAM "Buk-M3" will begin to enter the army in 2016

    "Now there is a planned upgrade with" Buk-M1 "to" Buk-M2 ". Later in 2016, we plan to get" Buk-M3 "

    Wow, maximum target speed: 3000 meters per second.

    Is that right?

    With the footprint of Buk-M3 I guess army doesn't need its own "version" of Vityaz, this slots nicely under S-300V4.

    Very curious about the missiles energy characteristics.

    With those caracteristics Buk-M3 will have same capabilities in range and ABM as old S-300V. Actually, this will be better for army than army version of Vityaz, because every launcher have its own engagement radar.

    Specifications from the NIIP (BUK-M2)

    BUK-M2



    Specification on BUK-M3

    AM "Buk-M3" - further development of the complex and can be adopted in2009. as a complex military army air defense unit. To effectively countering possible threats from the air in the next 12-15 years when it is created using new technologies and developments. It is expected that the "Buk-M3" will be able to destroy air targets, operating at speeds up to 3000 m / s at a range of 2.5 -70 km and altitudes 0,015 -35 km. Antiaircraft battalion will target 36 channels.

    Indeed I'm too. However, it's me or judging by the videos Buk m-1/2 and Shtil-1 (the second one even more) are already very fast missiles, especially in acceleration?
