    Well the Americans had helmet mounted sights for aircraft rather earlier, but the key is not the sights or the missiles... it is actually getting the sights and the high off bore sight missiles into service together that was actually an important thing and that was a Soviet first.

    The South African and US systems used standard missiles that did not have high off boresight capability, so the advantage was minor compared with the HMS/R-73 combination...

    The manufacturer-monopolist of microelectronic devices for the defense industry announced the closure of the plant


    The plant "Lenteplopribor" - the only manufacturer in Russia of software-time microelectronic devices UVPM-1, used, for example, in creating rocket-torpedoes of the 85RU anti-Rastrub-B missile system - declared its liquidation. According toTass, the corresponding decision was made by the board of directors of the enterprise, and then it was approved by the general meeting of shareholders.

    UVPM-1 is intended for switching electrical circuits with certain predetermined time delays and is also used in equipment designed to maintain the functioning of the Strategic Missile Forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. Back in 2016, the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of Russia recognized Lenteplopribor as a monopolist in the production of such devices.


    As follows from the company's report, 95% of product customers are enterprises that fulfill the state defense order. The company's revenue in 2018 decreased by 59% compared with 2017 and amounted to 56 million rubles (in 2017 - 95.97 million). At the end of 2018, the plant received a loss of 3.2 million rubles (a year earlier a profit of 9.3 million was recorded). "The negative dynamics is related to the volume of output of OHMP-1 in 2018," the document explains.

    Difficulties in the production of this product arose, among other things, due to the implementation of the FAS decree on lowering the price for UVPM, which had a negative effect on the financial condition. In 2016, the FAS ordered to reduce the monopoly high price for these products.

    The company was founded in 1955 as a pilot plant "Lenteplopribor". It is considered the ancestor of the development in the country of the first semi-automatic devices for monitoring and recording the parameters of technological processes in the most diverse areas of the national economy of the USSR. In 1995, it was reorganized into OJSC "Plant" Lenteplopribor ".

    That is clearly an attempt to strong arm mod.

    Won't work. They can close the plant. Someone else (Rostec) will pick up development.

    Otherwise mod would have stepped in.

    Well the high price monopoly will really have to be dealt with now, though there must be more devices that need accurate timers... but isn't the 85RU anti-Rastrub-B missile system a bit obsolete?

    Isn't that the funky SS-N-14 anti sub torpedo carrying rocket that can also be used against ships... that is pretty out of date now that the UKSK and UKSK-M will be using the 91RE1 anyway.
