    I am not aware of such systems installed on any tanks, do you have specific information?

    imma parrot what GarryB has been saying about the lasers for these beam riders being orders of magnitude weaker than those for the laser rangefinder - afterall its one way transmitting, no need to reflect back as is the case with laser rangefinders.

    no, nothing, just inferred it from the T-90MS CGI video i have saved in my machine. even if there is no mode on the fcs for it (i think the standard practice against targets with suspected LWR equipment would be to lase nearby objects, which is not applicable to flying targets for obviuos reasons unless they are hovering), one could just adhoc a target height pixel counter and target height database comparator. actually impossibru, in order to autotrack the target must be lased first for a couple secs, then there is sudden abrupt movement changes and boom you have to restart an autotrack, so sorry my bad pale.

    On the side armour issue, I think he's talking about the area covered by dynamic protection...he also says enemy tanks would have a hard time penetrating the side armour in many scenarios....he believes the Armata armour protection will be superior to anything currently in service

    Keep in mind these figures are estimates based on available info and visual observation, not official figures
    Shaping could help but either way the Javelin uses a high-penetration HEAT round... The best bet would be using the APS, which could prevent it from even hitting the T-14 in the first place. 

    That's what I figured... Around 700 mm RHAe on the reactive sections (more v. HEAT I'd assume) and 400/500 mm RHAe on the rear half (w/o reactive armor). It probably is the strongest side-armor as of right now, as most MBT's do not emphasis it very much. - Look at the A2 SEP...they knew the side was weak and glued on some sketchy *** ERA bricks to compensate.

    This probably belongs in ATGM thread at this point, but wouldn't LWRs only be effective against LRFs?
    A Laser Beam riding missile has the guidance laser shining up it's ass the whole trip, so should never need to trigger any LWR, right?

    It won't trigger the LWR because the laser does not have to be as powerful.

    On the other side, what are the chances you'd take such a system on the Battlefield and shoot up what ever target shows up. Personally I'd want such a system even if it isn't fool proof at long range.

    Where you think the fuel cells are here?

    There is no other way to carry fuel, and in some cases fuel cells can work as "el cheapo" spaced armour.

    What will explode? The fuel tank or the T-14? Given that tank is most probably diesel it will burn slowly and not explode.

    Have a look at t-90's fuel line. It is even more exposed.

    Fuel cells don't explode from own fuel (diesel) they have the same FOAM aluminium+whatever material that is like the fuel tanks on attack helicopters or Su-25, they are self sealing and surpressing explosions.

    In that case an entire passive targeting system via IRST/TIS image processor is necessary, because as soon you aim your gun at the helicopter the crew will be alerted by LWR and try to get low to break the LOS.

    The energy in the laser beam riding missiles laser beam is so weak it will likely not set off most LWR.

    Bear in mind that a laser range finder has a much much more powerful beam... the energy from a laser range finding system is such that if an object next to the target is lased that the reflected energy from the laser spot on the helo next to the target is comparable to the energy of the beam riders laser.

    This means that laser reflections will set off a LWR including laser reflections from the Helos own LRF... so LWR are often set to ignore less powerful signals... meaning often beam riders lasers are ignored.

    the alternative is that any laser reflection will set off the LWR so the crew will likely start ignoring it because any laser will set it off including the helicopters own laser rangefinder.

    Which one? Optronic database? There is no tank that could do that. There are systems in study for the AMX-56 with shape-factor IFF. They are trying to solve one issue with Optronic IFF, density. In most cases the optical/IR IFF will be difficult over 1K since the tank will show a shape, but not the actual density. Thales BMS PIDed 8/10 cardboards as real targets...it went to 9/10 with cars dressed up as tanks.

    The only missiles I have read about with onboard databases of targets signatures are the Brimstone MMW radar guided missile which has an onboard database of 3D MMW radar signatures of targets so detected targets can be identified, and the proposed Morfei IIR guided missile with a 3D database of IR images that can be used to ID targets.

    I remember in the 1980s the Europeans were developing artificial intelligence to try to teach an AI computer system to detect tanks.

    They got it to the point where 97% of the time it was right in lab tests and then they had field trials... and it was pathetic... its accuracy was aweful.

    Turns out they fed it with photos with tanks and photos without tanks and it tried to guess. they told it whether it was right or not and it used its own method of working out why... it was a black box system so you couldn't just generate rules.

    Anyway after a few years of trying to work out what was wrong it was eventually worked out that the sample photos with tanks in them were taken on sunny days.

    they thought they were training the computer to detect the presence or absence of tanks, but in actual fact what they trained it to do was detect a sunny day from a dark gray gloomy day... Twisted Evil 

    hehehe... true story... Twisted Evil 


    actually impossibru, in order to autotrack the target must be lased first for a couple secs, then there is sudden abrupt movement changes and boom you have to restart an autotrack, so sorry my bad

    Not true. To autotrack a target you don't need to know its range... it is a video processing feature that would work on the moon or the sun if you want... you don't need to know the range to either to track their movements.

    Equally you don't need to know the range to the target... you can look at where the target is and turn 45 degrees and lase something on the ground a similar distance away to get a rough estimate... if it is 6km away then you know your gun launched missile will reach as it can hit targets at 8km so you turn your turret round and place the crosshair on the target and "lock it"... ie tell the autotracker to follow the target... load the round and fire... the guidance system normally raises the beam to a couple of metres above the target so your missile will fly a few metres high and wont fly into fences of trees etc... the ballistics computer has a rough idea of range and knows the flight performance of the missile... so knowing the target is about 6km away after x number of seconds where the missile will have flown 5km the guidance system will automatically drop the laser down to centre it on the target and the missile will sense the beam drop several metres and it will descend back into the centre of the beam and follow it to hit the target.

    The missile will still be covering several hundred metres per second so the pilot wont see it until it is way too late... an end on GLATGM is 125mm across... if you can see that 200m away then you are a better man than I... and one second later it is punching through your cockpit windscreen... you will see that but you wont have time to do anything about it...

    Dodging bullets is Hollywood BS.

    During a real war if a pilot sees an SA-2 launch they might be able to start a manouver that the missile can't follow so you dodge the missile... but there is a difference between a telephone pole sized missile with an enormous smoke trail behind it and a missile the size of a football with no rocket motor and no smoke coming up from the ground with ground clutter to hide in.

    This probably belongs in ATGM thread at this point, but wouldn't LWRs only be effective against LRFs?
    A Laser Beam riding missile has the guidance laser shining up it's ass the whole trip, so should never need to trigger any LWR, right?

    Yes... having the LWR so sensitive that they are set off by beam riding lasers will simply result in hundreds or thousands of false alarms... which will likely lead to the being turned off.

    Somewhere there were tests about LBR tests against LWR with very low probability of alerting, but have to dig up that info to verify, but in theory yes LBR shouldn't set off LWR untill it is to late for the target where the Laser Beam is narrowed to precisely guide the missile into its target.

    Exactly how i did in Arma 3 always keep Laser Rangefinder off, sneak up laze a target on same level as your enemy tank or LAV and turn off lazer and then just shoot HE (mobility kill) or direct kill if it is LAV and then shred it to pieces by correctin after each round by eye figure.

    well, i thought so too - its only prolly limitation of current system and how they made it work, my mistake again(damn, cant get a break these days- must be a quota on mistakes i have to fulfill, school's not doing it do here we are Embarassed ). the one ive read about was for the French FCS, btw, and curiously it appears to not be fully auto- more like just adjusts fine aim.

    There's a common misconception about flammable liquids. The liquids themselves aren't responsible for the incendiary effect, it's the fumes that are explosive, and that's largely because the oxygen in the air is a highly flammable accelerant. For all intensive purposes the flammable fumes would be inert in a oxygen deprived environment.

    Enough said Wink



    About the old question of laser beam riding missiles triggering or not triggering LWRs, i want to repeat for the umpteenth time that the question is not only in the level of power required for the beam of a laser beam riding ATGM (up to two order of magnitude lower than classical SALH , but much more important, in the fact that beam riding missile do not need to be pointed to a scattering target AT ALL (as happen for SALH ) .

    Usually a well trained operator , for not say practically ANY new generation automatic target tracking system for those kind of missile like that present the Kornet-EM/AM , point the laser beam 15-20 meter above ,to the right or to the left of the intended target and collimate the angle of incidence with it only in the last second of the engagements ,leaving to the target no more than 3-4 seconds (and even much less in the istance of robotic automatic target tracking of latest production); for example ,an AH-64-E no more than 2-3 meters above LOS of a close hill, in the action to acquire some targets with its AN/APG-78 Longbow, will receive no warning from its LWR of a beam rider missile coming toward it except for a pair of second before the detonation on its rotors when the laser beam is collimated in a vector of collision with the helicopter.

    If HE hit that fuel tank on armata wont it explode ?

    What will explode? The fuel tank or the T-14? Given that tank is most probably diesel it will burn slowly and not explode.

    Have a look at t-90's fuel line. It is even more exposed.

    Murican fanbouys review T-14 Armata - forums.kindergarten.com  lol!

    Just in case ex-mp.net guys felt mp.net was just one insane shithole, you gotta see these frogs living in their own shit. Except for a few unbiased and matured posters who put across things objectively, rest are a bunch of simply brainless murican fanbouys & biased educated fools for whom there is only murican way of life.
    I would like to see that d_berwal guy in this forum. He is the only person in that forum with real knowledge on the subject. I dont know how Austin is surviving on that forum with a shitload of biased and dumb moderators and crew for whom anything Russian is untouchable.

    This is almost conditioning or Pawlow reflex, whenever i read "Bharat Rakshak" i have to eye roll, that is truelly an even more ridiculous forum than f-16 or mp net together.

    The most virulent are the vicarious achievers. This mental disease afflicts Ukraine as well. Basically an inadequacy syndrome.

    Unfortunately Bharat Rakshak has become American Rakshak forum with many Umrica fanboys with with little knowledge , 10 years back it used to be a much better forum to discuss many technical issues with many knowledgeble people with more substance to discuss unfortunately they all left.

    I am most there to discuss Economic Issue which fortunately is filled with knowledgeble people link below
