i wasnt talking about hitting the missiles at all it seems you cant read , i was talking about anihilating the attack helicopter which is in the open, you kill it and you also break the chain and missiles have lost guidance and have become useless and miss thier targets...
Krisantema is a MMW radar guided missile, though in its ground based form is SARH rather than ARH. It has a backup laser beam riding guidance option, but will likely operate in a SARH mode in the air launched model... which means the helo can pop up and fire its missile and then drop down behind cover with only its mast mounted MMW radar sticking up marking the target... what sort of western air defence system can lock on to such a target at 6-8km range let alone score a hit?
deviations of round at those ranges become more pronounced from IFV tanks and small arms are out of range ofcourse, giving at crew more chanses of survival
You haven't said why. For laser beam riding missiles from Russian tanks 2.5km would be the distance where they are just starting to become more useful than an APFSDS round in terms of lethality and cost as APFSDS lethality starts to drop off, but the accuracy of the autotracker remains very high and of course the HEAT warhead remains lethal at any range.
kornet em still needs inputs its ACLOS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ACLOS#Automatic_Command_to_Line-Of-Sight_.28ACLOS.29
Did you even read the link you provided?
Target tracking, missile tracking and control are automatic.
So tracking the target, tracking the outgoing missile, and controlling the missile so it hits the target are all automatic... the only input required is to lock on the target and to fire... the rest is... as you prove... automatic.
It is fire and forget in the sense that the operator just needs to fire and the missile should hit... it is very much like an IR guided missile or a TV guided missile except some of the guidance mechanism remains on the launcher.... the expensive bits so that the missile itself can be cheap and usable.
cant wait to see hermes i think it shall be very good. but guidance still seems like an issue in russian army
There will be at least four different guided models using IIR, MMW radar, Glonass guided, and SALH, though they might combine different guidance options to make them more flexible.
When it enters air and land and navy service it will be a very powerful system.
you dont know what you are talking about ,khrizantema is to replace ataka and shturm and older atgm missiles on helicopters...
They have said that, and that would be a good idea, but there is no evidence it will happen.
Certainly Kris has all the advantages of ATAKA with better range, speed, penetration, and the MMW radar guidance option, plus laser beam riding guidance, while ATAKA is radio command guidance with one laser beam riding model suggested for Ka-52... though it seems Vikhr won that contest.
BTW Great post as usual MINDSTORM...
Of course the huge irony is that with QWIP based Thermal imagers printed like CDs in 5-10 years time a thermal imaging CCD sensor of the sort used in digital cameras that can see in thermal frequencies will be about a dollar a chip so you can have a seeker in your missile and your launcher with much much better resolution.
Right now the sensors in Javelin in the missile and the launcher are the same and are designed to be as cheap as possible, which means they are no good for long range or high resolution but they are still expensive.
In 5-10 years such sensors will be cheap and you could put them in RPG rockets with a small cheap CPU so you can aim the weapon.. zoom in and get a lock on some digital image and then fire the rocket which will then home in on that particular target... fully passive and all weather, day/night.
Right now Javelin is enormously expensive and does certainly replace Dragon III, but would not be good enough to replace Metis-M1.
