    Named the advantages of the new stealth torpedo ET-1E

    Naval Weapon Systems & Technology - Page 20 Torped10


    The new Russian electric torpedo ET-1E has high transport characteristics and can operate in any part of the oceans, even under ice. Boris Obnosov, CEO of the Tactical Missiles Corporation (KTRV), spoke about this in an interview with TASS.
    Tests of the first Russian electric torpedo ET-1E have been completed, it is already entering service.

    "The advantages of the torpedo include high transport characteristics (speed and range), the ability to use in any area of ​​the oceans, including in shallow areas and under ice in the Arctic and Antarctic, smooth adjustment of the speed, the possibility of subsequent modernization of the design and software ", he said.
    ET-1E was presented as part of the Army-2022 international military-technical forum held in August. The declared speed of the 533-mm torpedo is from 30 to 50 knots.
    Then the representatives of the KTRV noted that the main advantage of the ET-1E torpedo was noiselessness and secrecy. "It is almost impossible to detect it at long range," they said.

    ET-1E can be used from submarines with 533 mm torpedo tubes equipped with electro-disruptive data input units.
    The torpedo was created at the State Research and Production Enterprise "Region" (part of the KTRV), which is the largest Russian developer of marine torpedo and aircraft bomb weapons.

    New electric torpedo ET-1E passed tests on nuclear and diesel submarines

    The advantage of the torpedo is its improved performance, the developer notes.

    Naval Weapon Systems & Technology - Page 20 E_ua_210


    MOSCOW, 21 October. /TASS/. The new electric torpedo ET-1E has been tested on nuclear and diesel submarines, confirming the safety of its placement on carriers. Dmitry Benzoruk, deputy chief designer of JSC GNPP Region (part of the Tactical Missile Weapons Corporation, KTRV), told TASS about this.

    "From the point of view of safety, it (the ET-1E torpedo) meets all the requirements for the safety of placement on carriers. We have confirmed this safety as part of the R&D (experimental design work), and we have already worked from all carriers of the Navy during testing : from nuclear submarines and from diesel submarines," he said.
    According to Benzoruk, the advantage of the ET-1E is its improved performance. "Due to this, a full-fledged operation is ensured: it can be launched in the workshop, "drive" all modes of operation, make sure that it feels normal on all evolutions of the trajectory and confirm its performance," he said, adding that earlier on other products, it was impossible to check the product before issuing it to the media in this way.

    About accessories

    The new electric torpedo ET-1E can be equipped with additional modules thanks to its modular design, said Benzoruk. any additional equipment. It is modular, it can take on additional modules," he said.

    "This torpedo is much shorter than those samples that were developed earlier. Due to the use of new technologies, it was possible to make it much shorter than existing samples and get about one and a half meters of margin to accommodate any additional equipment. It is modular, it can take on additional modules," - he said.

    The installed equipment can operate on the principle of "one tire", supplementing the characteristics and not changing the design of the torpedo, Sultanahmed Asaliev, acting general director of the Dagdiesel projectile manufacturer, told TASS.

    "Due to the fact that it is digital, we connect any module to the torpedo, and it calmly perceives and begins to control it," Benzoruk said.
    The electric torpedo ET-1E was developed at the State Research and Production Enterprise "Region", which is the largest Russian developer of marine torpedo and aircraft weapons. The torpedo is capable of hitting any surface, underwater and coastal targets at a distance of up to 18 km in difficult jamming conditions, including in shallow water and under ice. ET-1E can be used from submarines with 534 mm torpedo tubes.

    For the first time, the ET-1E was presented at the KTRV exposition at the Army-2022 International Military-Technical Forum, which was held from August 15 to 21 at the Patriot Congress and Exhibition Center.

    Deliveries of Pantsir-ME air defense systems began to the Navy, Rostec reported

    Rostec announced the start of serial deliveries of Pantsir-ME air defense systems to the Russian Navy

    Naval Weapon Systems & Technology - Page 20 15510011


    MOSCOW, October 26 - RIA Novosti. Serial deliveries of the latest Pantsir-ME anti-aircraft missile and gun systems have begun for ships of the Russian Navy, Bekhan Ozdoev, industrial director of the Rostec weapons complex, told RIA Novosti.
    “Currently, serial deliveries of the Pantsir-ME complexes to the ships of the Russian Navy are underway,” Ozdoev said.

    As the industrial director clarified, in the Black Sea, in particular, tests of a small missile ship armed with the sea "Pantsir" are being completed.
    He also recalled that earlier the Baltic Fleet received a small missile ship of Project 22800 Odintsovo, which is armed with this air defense system.
    According to open sources, today "Odintsovo" is so far the only ship in the combat composition of the Russian Navy, equipped with a sea "Pantsir".

    "Pantsir-ME" was developed at the Tula Instrument Design Bureau named after. Shipunov holding "High-precision complexes" and was first presented at the International Maritime Defense Show in St. Petersburg in 2017. The complex was created on the basis of the land version - "Pantsir-SM". The Pantsir-ME combat module, unlike the ground version, is equipped with eight anti-aircraft guided missiles instead of 12, and it also has not double-barreled, but six-barreled 30-mm machine guns.

    According to open sources, Pantsir-ME is capable of hitting air targets with missiles at a range of up to 20 kilometers at altitudes from two to fifteen thousand meters. Anti-aircraft guns of the complex can destroy targets at a distance of up to four kilometers. The maximum speed of the targets fired by the "Pantsir" reaches one kilometer per second.

    The latest radar "Sula" proposed to be adapted for the fleet

    The newest radar station (RLS) for monitoring space objects "Sula" can be installed on sea vessels. This was reported to TASS by a representative of PJSC Radiophysics (part of the Almaz-Antey concern).

    According to him, the range of the Sula radar reaches 6,000 km in the S band (decimeter and centimeter wavelengths). The radar antenna device is made using the element-by-element digital AFAR technology (active phased antenna array).

    "If the customer wants to install such a radar on a ship, this can be done. The dimensions of the antenna can be changed in accordance with the customer's requirements, without losing technical characteristics," the source said, adding that in this case, the power and range of the station will decrease.

    As the representative of the concern clarified, the detection range of an object with an EPR of 10 square meters. meters is 6000 km, and at a distance of 1500 km you can detect an object with a size of only 10 cm.

    Earlier it was reported that the peculiarity of "Sula" is that the antenna is located on the turntable, which allows you to cover a larger radius of action. The station is controlled from a command and computing center made in a prefabricated module.

    The Sula radar was presented at the exposition of the Almaz-Antey concern at the international exhibition of military equipment and weapons IDEX 2023, held in Abu Dhabi (UAE) in February.

    KTRV announced the ability of the new UMT small-sized torpedo to destroy underwater UAVs
    The Tactical Missiles Corporation explained that the projectile has an optimal range and speed

    KRONSTADT, June 22. /TASS/. The new universal small-sized UMT torpedo will be able to destroy underwater drones. This was reported to TASS by the Tactical Missiles Corporation (KTRV) at the International Maritime Defense Show (IMDS-2023).

    "The experience of conducting combat operations in modern conditions shows that the role of drones is enormously increasing in armed conflicts. The main purpose of the UMT is to fight uninhabited underwater vehicles. Despite its small size and weight, the torpedo has considerable power, has an optimal range and speed. It is equipped with a modern multiprocessor analog-digital equipment for detecting a target and issuing a command to defeat it," the corporation said.

    They noted that UMT provides homing to the target and non-contact detonation of the warhead in offline mode.
    UMT is presented at IMDS-2023 for the first time. The torpedo was developed by JSC Concern "Sea Underwater Weapons - Gidropribor". It is designed to destroy surface ships and submarines. It is used from helicopters, aircraft and drones. Its caliber is 220 mm, weight - about 100 kg, length - 2 m. up to 7 km, speed - up to 27 knots, explosive mass - up to 35 kg As the developer emphasizes, it can be used in all areas of the oceans.

    KTRV: the quietness of the ET-1E torpedo made it possible to increase the target acquisition range to 3 km

    As noted in the corporation, it is difficult for the enemy to detect this torpedo and the submarine that fired it.

    KRONSTADT, June 22. /TASS/. The low noise level of the new ET-1E electric torpedo made it possible to increase the target acquisition range by its guidance system to 3 km. This was reported to TASS by the Tactical Missiles Corporation (KTRV) at the International Maritime Defense Show (IMDS-2023).

    "The ET-1E torpedo is distinguished by low noise, which, on the one hand, makes it difficult for the enemy to detect both the torpedo itself and the submarine that fired it, and on the other hand, it significantly increases the range of target acquisition by the homing system: when working on submarines - up to 3 km" , - noted in the corporation.
    In October 2022, Dmitry Benzoruk, Deputy General Director of the Region State Research and Production Enterprise (GNPP) Dmitry Benzoruk, told TASS that the ET-1E torpedo had been tested on nuclear and diesel submarines, confirming the safety of its placement on carriers. He also said that the torpedo could be equipped with additional modules thanks to its modular design.

    The electric torpedo ET-1E was developed at the State Research and Production Enterprise "Region", which is the largest Russian developer of marine torpedo and aircraft weapons. The torpedo is capable of hitting any surface, underwater and coastal targets at a distance of up to 18 km in difficult jamming conditions, including in shallow water and under ice. ET-1E can be used from submarines with 533 mm torpedo tubes. Travel speed - from 30 to 50 knots, explosive mass - 250 kg.
    For the first time, the ET-1E was presented at the KTRV exposition at the Army-2022 international military-technical forum.

    Nuclear catamaran submarine

    Did you notice the propellers... they seem to be ducted fans that could rotate 360 degrees horizontally... within the ring the propellers are located if they could be angled up and down perhaps 20 or 30 degrees that would make that sub very very manouverable because the two propellers could be turned together or differentially to manouver the vessel.

    If it is designed to carry around those sea bed nuclear reactors you could have a fleet of three or four of these subs that could go to a region... say the sea off the Sudan and place those power stations on the sea bed somewhere there where Russian SSKs could go and operate and instead of surfacing and running diesel engines to charge their batteries on their Kilos and Ladas they can just connect to these sea floor nuclear power station recharging hubs and remain underwater for as long as they need to... without surfacing at all.

    Also the impact of having two large sonar arrays as shown by that cat sub would be rather good set of ears with the ability to very accurately work out the direction the sound is coming from the same way the spaced ears of a human works to do the same.

    In any case, people seem to have missed that there are 2 kinds of missiles on the launcher.

    The Shturm/Ataka launch tube is interesting because it is a precision guided missile normally used against ground based armour but would also be excellent against water surface and air targets... it is a command guided weapon that does not rely on the targets IR signature or radar signature, so if an enemy helicopter is detected you can fire the Igla missile (or newer Verba) but if the target has DIRCMS then it might defeat your IR guided missile, but DIRCMS wont stop an Ataka or Shturm missile which is command guided.

    It would also be effective at hitting point targets on the water out to about 6km or so.

    Cheap and simple but accurate and effective... not many naval targets or air targets with more than 560mm or armour so even older Shturm missiles could be used, but newer Ataka missiles with 800mm protection for armour on beaches firing at you would be rather useful too.

    Edit: looks like the optical ball turret used on the Hind upgrades. So if it is reusing technology all the better.

    The dalek type turret guns come in two versions, the AK-630M which has a smooth barrel jacket filled with water to cool the barrel cluster because it fires at about 5,000 rpm... which is about 800 rounds per gun per minute... which heats the barrels up relatively fast but gets lots of lead down range fast to shoot down incoming missiles and aircraft, but the other type is the AK-306 which is used on patrol craft that is not designed to shoot down incoming anti ship missiles and other difficult targets and its rate of fire is about 600 to 1,000 rpm with six barrels, so each barrel is only firing 100 to 166 rounds per minute... in bursts... it only carries about 500 rounds on the mount so it is normally not fitted with a water jacket...

    For AK-306, and AK-630M:

    I suspect the new models are just modified stealthy dalek mounts for the same guns...
