Russia's new missile will make the Su-57 even more desirable


Russia is developing a new short-range air-to-air missile. This is the first such munition since the end of the Cold War. The public was informed about this by the Vympel GosMKB (part of the Tactical Missile Armament Corporation), writes the American online edition The Drive.


The design bureau confirmed that it is conducting research and development work on the "Product 300M" project. The letter "M" can mean that we are talking about the modernization of some already existing ammunition or previously developed.

They talked about the "Product 300" or K-30 back in the 1990s. It was a "clean slate" rocket project that was supposed to replace the R-1983 rocket, which was adopted in 73, known in the West as the AA-11 Archer ("Archer"). But since then, Russia's efforts to replace the P-73 have focused on the further evolution of the ammunition, rather than creating an entirely new design. At the same time, Vympel has not yet published more detailed information about the new Product 300M. However, the fact that the manufacturer himself outlined the topic suggests that Russia is close to completing a new short-range air-to-air missile.

It is expected that a new infrared homing device will appear in development, which will allow detecting targets twice as far (12,4-15 miles) than the P-73 (6,2-7,5 miles). A more powerful two-pulse solid-propellant engine and an all-rotating nozzle for thrust vector control will appear, instead of the blades used on the R-73. Until the early 1990s, 6000 R-73 units were produced annually, but how long these missiles can be stored is unknown.

The 300M product will most likely be designed for domestic transportation by Su-57 fighters and, possibly, by S-70 Okhotnik drones. Without a doubt, the new missile will make the Su-57 even more desirable for export supplies, and the ammunition itself will be in great demand on the market. The new missiles can be used to arm aircraft that use the outdated R-73, so successful sales of the newest ammunition are guaranteed, the US edition concluded.

    Tellingly, all positive assessments of Russian weapons are certainly written in the future tense, since in reality there are no weapons. This is already a tradition, however ... laughing laughing laughing
    So in this case, the Su-57 fighter still exists in a single copy with the old engine, the rocket is only being developed and it is far from the fact that these developments will be brought to completion, so it's too early to rejoice, gentlemen. lol

      Tellingly, those tales that are told in Israel about the power of Jewish weapons cause laughter, even from Hezbollah and Hamas. Iron bullshit, can only shoot down antediluvian homemade rackets. Like those that the pioneers glued, made of papemache.

            You completely ignore reality. It is the Israelis who are frolicking with might and main in Syria, attacking the facilities of Iran and its proxies - first of all, Hezbollah; the warriors of Allah in response only courageously chew snot. Israeli planes and drones fly in the skies of Syria and Lebanon as at home, and tried to enter Israeli airspace in 2018. the Iranian drone was destroyed one and a half minutes later. You are inadequate, my friend. lol

              You are inadequate, because you have just once again publicly confirmed the terrorist nature of the foreign policy of your state of Israel. wink

                Where did you see the terrorist essence of the foreign policy of the State of Israel, Marzhetsky? The Israelis only care about the security of their country and its inhabitants, delivering precise strikes against clusters of terrorists and their logistics centers in the adjacent territory. Iranian leaders have repeatedly stated that the strategic goal of Iran is the destruction of Israel, the Israelis are only defending themselves and are doing it very successfully. yes

        It is useless to debate with "Bindyuzhnik". All his arguments, regardless of the topic, boil down to two postulates:
        - And in Israel everything is "longer and thicker"
        - And for that you do not know how to write on the wall
        The only good thing is that he doesn’t drop any direct insults (unlike some "Svidomo").

          Rather, in contrast to some scrapbearers - owners of an extra chromosome (in the 21st pair), who are sophisticated in distorting the names of Ukraine and the same Israel.

        all these newly minted inhabitants of Israel, who pour out their bile and sarcasm on Russian achievements and problems day and night here (possibly on other Russian media) are very similar to their brothers in trousers and forelocks, straight twin brothers, that those that these souls do not smell in America and the global financial * government *, of which the real Jews are like bullet from shit, as they were Svidomo and remained

      I am ashamed to ask, what can your hokhlyandiya boast of what has already been achieved? An incredible leap in freedom of speech or a hyperloop to Boryspil? And I forgot, you are always proud of Maybut!

    desired
    adjective
    1. Desirable is what they strive for, or what they look forward to, what brings joy.
    2. Desirable is what arouses a feeling of attraction, passion.

    I don't think that a military plane (a murder weapon) can bring joy or excite attraction and passion. There is a fairly common word - "in demand".
