The scaled-down Iskander: What is the new tactical missile


A new type of weapons should appear in Russia, which will become the missing link between the powerful Iskander OTRK and all types of cannon and rocket artillery. At the same time, it should become "almost hypersonic" and interspecific: it should be used both in the ground forces and in the aviation and in the navy. This is our "wunderwaffe" will be called "Klevok-D2".


According to "Izvestia", the new missile will become a real thunderstorm for enemy tanks and other armored vehicles, headquarters and command posts, planes and helicopters peacefully parked:

"Klevok-D2" will receive wings that unfold after launch and a ramjet engine (ramjet engine) ... On it, it will accelerate to several thousand kilometers per hour in 40 seconds.

Due to its compact dimensions (length - 3500 mm, diameter - 210 mm) and a weight of 130 kilograms, the rocket can be easily installed on the "Tiger", and on the coast guard boat, and on the suspension of the aircraft. A flight range of 100 kilometers will allow the missile system to hit targets at tactical depth with high accuracy, and a speed of Mach 5 will make its strike almost irresistible. In the domestic press, Klevok-D2 is even called a mini-Iskander. This is, of course, an exaggeration, but not very big. There will be a "little thing" useful in the Russian military economy.

The development of the rocket will be carried out by the Tula Instrument Design Bureau named after V.I. academician Shipunov. The project is not being built from scratch; it is based on the Hermes interspecific missile system. This complex of guided missile weapons is designed to destroy single and group targets, such as armored vehicles, fortifications, low-speed aircraft and floating craft. There are several basing options: ground, aviation, ship and stationary for the needs of the coast guard. The missile's flight range is all the same 100 kilometers, which brings Hermes closer in performance to operational-tactical complexes at an incomparably lower price.

There is no doubt that both "Hermes" and its counterpart "Klevok-D2" will be in great demand in the Russian army and among foreign customers. However, it is necessary to understand that making an "almost hypersonic" version of the missile system will be a non-trivial task.

The ramjet engine (ramjet) is not capable of providing the declared speed of Mach 5. This will require its hypersonic version (scramjet). Certain developments in this direction were carried out at the "Raduga" design bureau even during the Soviet Union and later at the Central Institute of Aviation Motors. P.I. Baranov, but only some experimental prototypes are known. A serial hypersonic ramjet engine does not yet exist in our country. It will take years of difficult work in order to give the missile system the declared speed characteristics, so it is likely that it will appear in the army in the thirties.

    The money for weapons is constantly being cut. Therefore, by the 30s, the timing will probably be adjusted.

      Why are they reducing? We have a program for the development of weapons until 2020 for 2027, where the allocated funds for development have a different amount over the years, depending on the planned requirements.

    Who SHOULD be forgiven everyone. And for a long time. So think about it.
    Development has not yet begun, but it is already hypersonic. It is unclear what the usual supersonic one did not like.
    In Karabakh, they generally use subsonic drones, they are much cheaper.
    Maybe this is the case?

    If modern ramjet engines provide speeds up to 4M ... then why not push up to 5M? The developed aircraft KR X-50 (?) "Must" reach the speed of 5M when equipping the "product" of the ramjet, in general, of the "traditional" type! It is also known that in the USA hypersonic anti-tank missiles with solid propellants were developed ... Here is such a "nuance" you can use! In short ... the solid-propellant rocket motor of the upper stage works for a very short time, while developing, at the same time, a very high power! During the operation of the upper stage (RB), the speed of hypersound is reached! But then a ramjet is needed to maintain (!) Hypersonic speed at a certain (necessary) section of the flight path ...!

    -Is it worth the candle ???
    - Isn't it easier to send a UAV and take any missile from an MLRS (well ... or almost any ... - Tornado, Solntsepёk, or from the Belarusian Polonaise) with a built-in primitive guidance device ... and in real time for adjustments .. .- put her tunic in the tunic on the target ...

      UAVs are designed for war in banana republics; they are useless against a modern enemy with advanced electronic warfare and air defense.

        - If that ... - Russia has been shoveling the desert sand with expensive bombing for the sixth year in a banana republic called Syria ...
        - And also ... -if that ... -that in a "real war" a swarm of cheap drones with powerful translators will create the illusion of an aviation armada or the work of entire missile divisions; and among them there will be several "real UAVs" that will create a system and "hoist" the entire air defense of the enemy for just a few seconds; and in these few seconds (even less) ... - a few more "real UAVs" will lay out any target like on a platter ... - and then it's a no brainer ... - The Chinese are already doing their best in this direction ... - and they will probably succeed soon ...
        - What can be done against a swarm of gnats ... - even with smart super sophisticated missiles ... - And this gnat even in Africa is a gnat; even in America (USA) ... -moshkara ... -there is practically no difference ... -And today Russia just eats bananas and this is where her whole confrontation with banana republics ends ... -And about fancy republics (not banana ) you can only say; that here Russia prepares itself for eating ... - as food ... for these countries (for China and the Americans) ... - here already without comment ... - So you ... eat bananas for now, prepare yourself for eating and don't bother ... -Hahah ...

          For each case, there should be a means, where there is a "gnat" for surface purposes, and where there is a deep bunker or something else, gnats are too tough, there is a "peck" to match ... The tool should be different for each "job "and one does not exclude the other ... According to the article, the optimistic beginning for health ended, that this is yet another project, - for peace ...

            - In every civilized country (and not civilized), millions of Chinese live today in a legal position ...
            - Of them ... - tens of thousands ... - these are scouts, spies, saboteurs, terrorists and saboteurs of various stripes ... - By special order, they can simply attack military and industrial facilities in any country and capture them .. . - But let's omit such a primitive nuance ...
            - Let's take another variant ... - By order, these Chinese saboteurs make a huge number of drones; they literally collect and fasten them with tape (by any improvised means) and, upon a signal, launch hundreds of thousands of these drones ... - literally whole clouds (of various thicknesses) these drones ... - continuous fog of REP ...
            - All electronic warfare; Air defense and other means of security and protection of any country are neutralized ...
            - Well, and then ... - at least carry out missile or bombing strikes on this country ... - Or throw parachute troops into this country ... - In China today, millions of airborne paratroopers have been trained ... - The ending is clear ...
            - Oh, yes ... - after all, the military remained in the bunkers, underground ... - Well, let them sit there ... -from them ... = mines and rocket launchers will be captured or simply blown up by paratroopers ; and the communication itself and the control itself will be violated everywhere ... - What's next ??? - Someone will dare to do something after that ... - Give some orders ... - and to whom ??? - It is unlikely that the commanders of nuclear submarines will undertake the sad mission of delivering a nuclear strike ... -What is the point in that ???

              Theoretically, having removed all obstacles, it is possible that Muslims will seize some European states in N years. In fact, the countries have both intelligence and counterintelligence, and such plans are not destined to come true. Take it easy and don't take stimulants, otherwise the Martians will start launching millions of drones ...

          Think right. A swarm of drones in a network-centric war is a direct, obvious threat, and given that the very type of weapons has just received the first impetus in development, this threat has not yet been countered in any way, even theoretically. I believe that the patrol "security drones" will become the main shield against the same kamikaze drones and gunner drones. And electronic warfare is just a shield, because of which "not everything is visible," and you should not rely on pure electronic warfare. As for heavy attack drones, this is a completely different story, this is a heavy attack aircraft, part of the former niche of classic attack aircraft. The problem is in the fight against a swarm of cheap, but well-controlled UAVs, against which classical air defense systems do not economically pull, and electronic warfare can fail.

    - The little man believes in "Muslim rule"; believes in "intelligence and counterintelligence" ... - Believes in "stimulants"; believes in "Martians" and believes in the effectiveness of ... drones ...
    - Such "gullibility" will come in very handy when a bowl of rice or a bowl of Chinese noodles become the only stimulants for belief in a "bright tomorrow" during the general Chinese expansion ... - An excellent short-lived credo ... - the Chinese will not stimulate with their stew for so long .. . - They are useless ... - such superfluous people they just ... unnecessarily ...
    - Their charity does not apply to the holy fools ... - And not only to the holy fools ...
