Курганец-25 ,in military parade of 9 May 2015, will be presented in two versions
-12 vehicles each- APC and IFV
,the likely most common variants of this unified platform .
About the provocative assertion about.....Brimstone..... (a little more than a modification of the AGM114 Hellfire , a weapon that was obsolete even only against '80 years level Soviet Ground Force's defensive architecture) ; well let we briefly examine the question :Carrying aircraft
attacking a column of Курганец-25 should struggle for survival
(way before weapon delivery
) against, in order :1) Frontline aviation elements
(interceptors and ,after, squadrons of tactical aircraft with weapon and EW suit totally oriented to air superiority roles
) 2) С-300В4
long range SAM batteries. 3) Бук-М3
medium range SAM batteries.4) Панцирь-СМ
close-to-medium range SAM batteries.
After the delivery the..... BrimstoneI/II.....will be forced to overcome
(over the previously mentioned elements capable, if the need should even arise, to engage also air to ground munitions too), before getting the chance to hit even only a single "Курганец-25 " in order : 1) EW complex " Красуха-2/4" , "Москва-1" and "Дивноморье"
capable at very long range to severe weapon position up-link and satellite connection for both the carrying aircraft and the delivered weapons
assuring theirs deviation off-course; at medium range to blind MMW seekers
of the inbound missiles ; and at very close range, (for a future component of one of them) to act as a true DE microwave weapons capable to destroy the incoming elements through highly concentrated emissions of UHF radiation.2) System Ртуть-БМ ,optimized for the destruction of hostile missiles in-flight guidance and terminal radar homing.3) Complete masking of the entire ground column in march with
the purposely optimized masking system "ТДА-2К"
(acting both in the short wave length radar bands and in the IR and near-IR optical band
!).4) Active destruction ,at mid-range, by part of radar/optronic guided SAM "Тор-М2КМ" and/or "Панцирь-С".5) Active destruction ,at closer range, by part of IR homing SAM "Стрела-10М3"
(or ,worse ,variant of "Морфей") , laser beam riding the type "Корнет-AМ"
and ПЗРК "Верба".6) Active close range destruction with 30mm
....and, at brief , new higher caliber.... high frequency fire cannons
, including those mounted on the same unified platform "Курганец-25 "
, all linked in the new Army's unified battle control and management system capable to assign targets to the better placed vehicles for theirs defeat
.7) Incapability to home on the vehicle for the in-built and equipped signature reducing measures
implemented in the "Курганец-25". Destruction of the missile by part of the Active Protection System, "Standard", mounted on Курганец-25
. 9) Overcoming of the new generation of armor
, purposely developed by "НИИ Стали" for this class of LAV, capable to reduce the damages within repairable threshold.No other Army at world has anything even only by far comparable with a similar defensive, multi-type and multi-layered umbrella for its ground forces
; it is designed to
successfully repeal attacks conducted with future, post 2020, offensive means entire orders of magnitude more complex and difficult to neutralize
than this.......modified AGM-114
