Russia has a weapon that allows you to completely destroy enemy columns of equipment, but they are not used


In the course of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, it became obvious that the use of MLRS in areas is ineffective (high overexpenditure of ammunition). Unguided missiles with a cluster warhead often “plow the ground”, and do not stop the advance of enemy columns, out of a dozen armored vehicles of which, on average, they manage to hit a few pieces, which is not enough.


However, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have weapons that allow them to completely destroy enemy columns, but for some reason they are practically not used. There is only anecdotal evidence of its use in the SBO process. We are talking about self-aiming combat elements - SPBE, which are comparable to high-precision weapons. For example, SPBE-K are installed in the cluster warhead of 9M55K1 rockets for the Smerch MLRS and effectively hit any armored vehicles with anti-tank ammunition.

SPBE-K is produced with a combined target coordinator (guidance through thermal and radar channels), which provides ample opportunities for destroying the enemy in various theaters. These ammunition are capable of hitting up to six units of armored vehicles (up to six elements in a cassette) and at the same time recognize it according to the “friend or foe” principle so as not to hit your friends or allies. The videos below show how enemy armored vehicles, including the Armed Forces of Ukraine, are defeated with the help of SPBE.



After launch, the rocket delivers the submunitions to a given area. Next, the case opens with the ejection of the contents of the cassette. Moreover, the discharge is carried out at altitudes of at least 400 meters. The oncoming air current pulls out the auxiliary parachute and the ammunition begins a more orderly descent. Approximately at an altitude of 170 meters, the auxiliary parachute is fired and the main one opens. SPBE decreases at a speed of 15 m/s, rotating around its axis (6-8 revolutions per second) and "probing" a circle with a radius of 100 meters. Having detected the thermal radiation of the enemy, the warhead is undermined. The cumulative jet penetrates homogeneous armor 70 mm thick.

Russia has a weapon that allows you to completely destroy enemy columns of equipment, but they are not used

Thus, everything that is required to successfully suppress the offensive actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is there. It is only necessary to allocate a small number of Smerch MLRS crews in different sectors of the front, the launchers of which must be loaded with such products, and also to assign UAVs for reconnaissance to these gunners.

    And who will highlight the targets for this high-precision miracle, in the depths of the enemy’s defense, where the columns are formed?
    With closer targets, we seem to be better off.

    If there is such ammunition, then at the top they don’t know about it, which means “they” are not competent, or “they” do not allow it to be used, which means betrayal. Well, what am I talking about!! Does anyone have a third version??

      Third? Yes please!

      Ammunition is expensive, so "zealous high officials" "keep" them in warehouses using conventional ammunition ...

      By the way, in the SAR, at the initial stage of the operation, they were used against ISIS armored vehicles and other devils.

    Russia has a weapon that allows you to completely destroy enemy columns of equipment

    There are and are used!
    This weapon has its own characteristics, which the enemy knows about. Proceeding from this, the following acts: columns with a given interval between pieces of equipment, placement in greenery, etc.

      Yes, you can’t adapt to this "smart ammunition" in any way, no matter how smart you are, no matter how you stretch the columns.
      Impossible to guess , what will be the spread of the cassettes, and all the "armor" that falls into the field of view of the scanner (thermal and radar channels), is still in the palm of your hand.

    Everyone has such ammunition (in the broadest sense). And they don't all use much.
    Maybe expensive?
    1 final thing, they wrote, (western, 10 years old gazad) - under 100 thousand bucks.

    We have everything ..... but business gets in the way, when we dismiss this stereotype, things will go, I don’t call for it right away, but things are moving towards this, the oligarchy in Russia is becoming obsolete, we will still hear high-profile cases of privatization in the 90s, when fatty pieces of our industry were illegally robbed .... Miller will still answer .... it takes a long time to understand ... we have a different development model, different from world capitalism and communism ,,,,,,, but not the current one (colonialism)

      Here's what it is from the article:

      Yes ... SPBE-K has 2 channels (thermal and radar) ... But what does external illumination have to do with it? request And by the way, SPBE-K is used in the "Drel" aircraft bomb cassette! In cluster rockets, SPBE-K is not used for the Smerch MLRS! No. In cassette RSs MLRS "Smerch" and earlier "early" air cassettes, SPBE and SPBE-D are used, which do not have a radar channel (!); but only infrared (thermal)! These are the so-called war blocks! Among the combat units there is one command unit with a radio altimeter, which allows the combat units to "undermine" when a target is detected! Where did you get the need for external "lighting"? negative

    In the course of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, it became obvious that the use of MLRS in areas is ineffective

    Well, they finally recognized that most of the shells are wasted and something needs to be done about it.

    It is not clear from the video how a combat element from a cassette can taxi up by parachute to its target. Yes, he can accurately hit the target in a limited circle, which will be under him at a certain height. But it seems that he cannot choose this circle. Such a contraption can work in the event of a high density of vehicles on the surface, but the enemy prefers the tactics of individual mobile groups.
    In this situation, hitting him with such weapons is like carpet bombing against saboteurs. Only bombs are several times more expensive than ordinary ones.

      The theoretical idea is probably this:
      The radius of the circle, which is the base of the scanning cone, starting from a radius of 100 m, decreases as the ammunition decreases. As a result, the beam moves in a converging spiral and will inevitably cross the target located inside this circle.
      Another thing raises doubts - the accuracy of the defeat, taking into account the delay. How she suffers from the swinging of ammunition on a parachute. After all, there is air turbulence, thermal updrafts, the impact of shock waves from undermining other ammunition.
      In my opinion, a parachute is a very unreliable platform for aiming, which should be carried out by anticipating the angle of the scan beam, depending on the height. The result is an increased (perhaps several times!) consumption of expensive ammunition for a guaranteed effect. This is not to mention the fact that the height range of the "shot" depends on the arbitrary position of the target in the circle. and can be anything, starting from 170 m, which for an unguided projectile leads, respectively, to an arbitrary, very wide change in the accuracy of destruction.
      In general - the impression of a budget divorce for money "sucked from the finger" by an ineffective empty shell

        I agree. What a mess with a parachute. After all, there are vigorous charges for a 152mm howitzer and so on ... you don’t have to feel sorry for the enemy, but destroy it. This is a war of annihilation.

    This ammunition was produced in limited quantities, due to the high cost and lack of elemental base. Therefore, the issue can be considered closed. What lies in the warehouses is NZ in case of an invasion by NATO forces. There is no excess. Whether or not they will be able to increase production is a moot point. Perhaps it will be cheaper to make 20 "mopeds". And in general ... a lot of questions arose. Are we going there? Do we really need such capitalism? And does our society need oligarchs and millionaires...
