    Actually for the prices of conventional bombs and rockets you would be better to look to companies like Bazalt... http://bazalt.ru/en/

    Interview with General Director of the "Tactical Missiles Corporation"

    I present one interesting point regarding satellite guidance of Russian air-to-surface missiles:

    Still it remains unclear with equipment controlled by the Russian Air Force weapons class "air-surface" with satellite guidance systems. In the West, more than a decade had such munitions have become a major air attack? We have the same superficially not yet noticeable flow of such weapons to the troops.

    In fact, many of our products have satellite navigation system. On the development of "Rainbow" on the X-35U worth of GPS / GLONASS. There are satellite navigation systems in the KAB caliber 1500, 500 kg. Now we end state tests of X-38MTE. Where is appropriate, we set a satellite navigation system.. But it is impossible to consider satellite navigation as a some kind of panacea. It should always be duplicated by other means of navigation.

    R-24R and R-24T

    Post  nastle77 on Sat Aug 22, 2015 5:47 pm

    I just wanted to confirm the ranges for these missiles

    The information I have is only for R-23R and R-23T which were 35 km an 15 km respectively, I'm assuming the R-24 had longer ranges ?

    Just from memory the 35 and 15km ranges were head on lock on ranges based on the seeker performance.

    Obviously a receeding target could be engaged at greater ranges because of better IR view of engines with the IR guided model.

    i seem to remember the head on engagement range of the radar homing R-24 as being something like 55km or so.

    I was having discussion with colleague in BRF and it seems Russia has not ordered the R-27 yet , most of the picture of Su-27 even in Syria is shown with R-27 and not R-77 , so it true that RuAF has not ordered R-77 ?

    Also it seems R-77 has design issues ?

    I am not sure about that "reliability and engineering problem" Given that our own flanker (Indonesian) Also used R-77 and successfully tested it.

    One thing however.. Carlo Kopp stated that the 9B-1348 seeker for R-77 using Texas Instrument Digital signal processor chip (TMS-320) Perhaps that could be the problem.

    Russia have ordered R-77-1 missiles and first missiles will be delivered to RuAF in this year. As you could see on the photo, operational Su-35 regiment already have launch adapters for R-77-1 missiles. Most probably Su-35 and Su-30SM units will be the first equipped with those missiles. I think we will more often see them next year, when RuAF will receive larger number of them.

    If you ask specifically for R-77 missiles, than answer is no, RuAF didn't order R-77 missiles, they order R-77-1 missiles.

    What are the differences? R-77-1 uses Russian made components?

    Seeker upgrade for the Izdeliye 170-1(R-77-1) is not yet over, so it is unlikely to be delivered this year.

    R-77-1 are already in production and Russian MoD ordered them. Missiles are fully Russian without components from Ukraine. They said to have a problem with a seeker for short range AAM, not for R-77-1.

    Did RuAF have R-27AE active radar variant ?

    Difficult to say. Officially not, but externally R-27AE is the same as R-27ER, so they could easily hide them behind R-27ER.

    Russian Air-to-Air missiles

    Post  GarryB on Sun Oct 04, 2015 6:29 am

    Up until recently there haven't been that many Russian Air Force aircraft that could use R-77 that were actually in service in numbers (as opposed to prototypes and sales models trotted out for air shows).

    The MiG-29SM and MiG-29SMT and the Su-27SM and Su-30SM, plus Su-34 and Su-35 would be able to carry them but for the vast majority of in service aircraft like the MiG-29 and Su-27P they were not compatible.

    The R-27 is not a bad weapon that has a very wide variety of types and is cheap and would be effective enough.

    even with the introduction of R-77 and later missiles I suggest the R-27ET will remain in use as there doesn't seem to be a long range IR guided alternative so far...

    Note both the R-37 and R-77 have hydraulic rams built into their launch pylons to allow conformal and internal launch positions... the missile is thrown down clear of the aircraft before the missiles rocket motor is started to prevent the airflow around the aircraft fuselage and wings from blowing the missile back up into the aircraft doing damage on launch.

    Aerial Missiles That Protect Russian Bombers in Syria Revealed (Photos)


    R-73 missile


    R-27ER missile

    Su-30SM fighters, which are part of Russia’s anti-ISIL campaign in Syria, are armed with R-73 short-range and R-27R medium-to-long-range air-to-air missiles, representatives of the Russian Air Force told journalists at the Hmeymim airbase in Latakia.

    The Russian airstrike group in Syria includes Sukhoi Su-24s, Su-25s and Su-34s, as well as several Su-30SM fighters. The main objective of these fighter jets is to protect Russian bombers, striking ISIL positions in the air, from possible enemy fighters.

    For this purpose the Sukhoi fighter jets are armed with R-73 and R-27R (and its modification R-27ER) air-to-air missiles. Each plane can carry 12 of these deadly missiles, but usually Russian fighters carry six of them for greater maneuverability.

    The R-73 short-range air-to-air missiles are designed for close-range aerial combat, with a range of no more than 30 kilometers. The R-73 missile is equipped with an infrared-homing (heat-seeking) head that provides extreme precision when hitting targets. Pilots can fire R-73 missiles using a helmet-mounted sight (HMS) system of targeting.

    In addition to the short-range missiles, Su-30SM flankers are equipped with R-27R and R-27ER medium-to-long-range missiles. The R-27R and R-27ER missiles can be used between 20 and 27,000 meters altitude and are equipped with an active-radar-homing head that allows the missile to find and track its targets autonomously. Active-radar-homing missiles are extremely accurate and have one of the best kill probabilities among all modern air-to-air missiles.

    Russia launched an airstrike campaign aimed at assisting the Damascus-led forces in their fight against extremist groups in Syria, including Islamic State, following a request from the government of Bashar al-Assad.

    First of all that picture of the R-73 is a dummy version.... the white missile with black stripes indicates that.

    And by definition the R-27R and R-27ER are SARH missiles.... that is what the second R means in both designations... ie R= in service air to air missile, -27 means model 27, while the last R means SARH, while the E is the extended range model with larger rocket motor (note the image of the R-27 shows the R-27ER.

    The IR guided version of R-27 and R-27E has the same IR seeker as the R-73, and any weapon can be aimed using the helmet mounted sight...

    when did the full scale production of R-73 start and approx. how many were made by 1990 ?
    Thanks

    From memory full scale production started about the mid 1980s and they were made in very large numbers.

    WHat is the max engagement range of R-60M front and rear aspect ?

    AFAIK the max head on range is about 10km and the tail launch range is about 4km for subsonic targets.

    Russian Military Receiving New Improved Combat Air-to-Air Missiles

    Russia’s new short-range maneuverable combat air-to-air missiles based on the R-73 short-range missile have been delivered to the military, the general director of the Duks designing company told Sputnik.

    “Deliveries have begun,” Yuri Klishin said. Klishin said earlier that the new missile should have an infrared precision navigation warhead and its capabilities would be expanded for its attack angle, payloads, lock-on navigation warhead, as well as increasing its survivability from various types of tracking, increased reliability, anonymity, and its uniqueness. He said that the missile’s effectiveness would also be increased by 25-30 percent.

    RVV-MD has a maximum firing range of about 40km, that is quite similar to IRIS-T, ASRAAM, Python-5 or AIM-9X
