Why is our CBT "Tosochka" so nervous for Americans

The Russian heavy flamethrower system TOS-2 "Tosochka", which was first used in a recent exercise, so "excited" the Americans that the publication of The National Interest openly "hinted" at the advisability of banning such systems at the international level.

As a matter of fact, this is not surprising. Indeed, since the late 70s, the Pentagon has been unsuccessfully looking for a weapon whose power will be comparable to a nuclear charge, but without the consequences in the form of radiation. But the Russians did it.

For the first time a heavy flamethrower system called "Buratino" was tested by the Soviet Union in 1978. Then the combat effectiveness of the TOS was considered low. But everything changed after she was equipped with an unguided missile with a thermobaric warhead.

A flame with a temperature of about 800 degrees burned out everything in its path, penetrating literally all the cracks. In this case, after the mixture was burned out, a vacuum was created, which in turn formed a centripetal shock wave that would blow away any obstacles.

Tests conducted in Afghanistan, where these weapons were extremely necessary for the assault on long-term fortifications, confirmed the high effectiveness of the TPS. However, in 1989 the USSR withdrew from Afghanistan, and in 1991 the Soviet Union itself was gone.

The TOS "Buratino" was adopted by the Russian army only in 1995. But the real triumph of the modified system, which was named TOS-1A "Solntsepёk", took place in Iraq in 2014.

Then a similar result was achieved in Syria, where thanks to our "Solntsepek" it was possible to recapture the Al-Safa plateau from the Islamists, to which the Assad army could not "approach" for more than 3 months.

Now "Tosochka" is on its way, which cannot but "irritate" the Americans. After all, our systems have repeatedly confirmed the saying: "Where TOC, there is victory."

    This is a really scary weapon. And it even seems to me that if the firing range is increased to 15-40 km, then they can refuse artillery?

      Banning internationally means banning purchases of similar systems for U.S. allies

    Actually, the article smells like mothballs, it's old, from Jan. 2020

    "Why you should be wary of new Russian heavy flamethrower battalions"


    (lane google)

    The Russian military newspaper Red Star claims that the thermobaric weapon reflects Russia's willingness to conduct assault operations, such as storming fortified cities, as opposed to the Western approach to using precision weapons in mobile combat. “The Americans assumed that wars would become non-contact - light mobile infantry would conduct deep raids under the cover of aviation,” said the Red Star. “They believed that assault operations were a thing of the past. As a result, according to Viktor Murakhovsky, they spent a year capturing Iraqi Mosul, and the assault on Syrian Raqqa dragged on for four months. In the process, the cities were completely destroyed by aircraft. "
    Whether cities will be destroyed - and their inhabitants destroyed - more efficiently or humanely with air-fuel explosives remains to be seen. “We had to burn down the city to save it,” seems dubious at best.

      All this is absurd nonsense, in the course of hostilities it does not matter how exactly the destruction of the enemy will be achieved, the main thing is to do it as quickly and efficiently as possible, and the very idea of ​​humanism in relation to your enemy during a war is far from the best idea! !!

    Anti-Barmaley weapon. The United States is accustomed to fighting with barmaley, and they do not really want to burn lately.

    And, Pushkovskaya National Interest is worried about how to hang a paw.

    And amers do not care. It will not finish them off.

    And in Karabakh, they seem to have been noted ... And nothing, zero reaction. Nobody cares either.

    If the brain cannot create a weapon, then it should not be, and if someone has it, it should be prohibited. that is the strength of the American army

    I don't even know how to perceive the fact that the United States wants to stir up the ban on our CBT at the international level - I wanted to laugh, but they say that it is a sin to laugh at the flawed.
    Americans do you adhere to these international rules ?!
    USA spits on international rules from the height of the torch of its statue of "Liberty" !!!
    On what grounds are you using the United States banned phosphorus bombs ?!
    So our TOS will remain in service with Russia and we will certainly treat you to them in case of your inappropriate actions or provocations - as they say from Russia with love laughing
