The main Russian threat to Western "stealth" is launched into serial production


Information has appeared on the Web about the launch of a new air-to-air missile, so far referred to as "Product 180", into mass production. This missile was created on the basis of the R-77 (RVV-SD), taking into account the development of stealth aircraft of a potential enemy.


The predecessor of the "Product 180", the R-77 missile is considered the best means of combating generation 4 and 4+ aircraft, but it has somewhat lost its relevance against fifth generation fighters. Work on the "Product 180" in the design bureau "Vympel" began 12 years ago. This summer, the final tests of the rocket were carried out. For test launches, Russian fifth-generation Su-57 fighters were used.

The main feature of the "Product 180" can be considered the presence of a guidance system with an active phased antenna array (AFAR). It provides high accuracy of the missile and makes it impossible to hide any modern fighter or bomber built using stealthof technologies.


The rocket is equipped with a solid propellant engine and is capable of accelerating to Mach 4. The electronic systems of the "Product 180" work effectively in conditions of active radar interference and make it difficult to suppress the missile with air defense systems. Western publications noted last year that the Izdeliye 180 could become the most effective air-to-air missile in the world and provide an advantage in the sky for Russian aircraft.

    The good news is that now we need to increase mass production, now our Aerospace Forces need a lot of the most modern missiles.

    It's great that the missile is against "stealth", now the West has hit these technologies

      The West has been hitting these technologies for almost half a century now, the development of an inconspicuous aircraft began back in 1975, and the first flight of the f-117 in 1981, all other countries, including Russia, are trying to catch up with the United States in these technologies.

        After the Second World War, the United States went as trophies of the development of the Germans - the Horten brothers on aircraft with a coating that provides invisibility to radars. The flying wing was called the Hörten. The Americans studied the trophies and began to create their own stealth aircraft on their basis. Because The USSR did not get anything from the developments of the Horten brothers, which is why it began to develop the technology of "invisibility" only when the United States had already begun to use this technology in its entirety in its weapons. Nothing can be done, the development of the Horten brothers was not carried out on the territory of the occupation zone of the USSR.

          The Hortens did not even think about invisibility, their goal was to make an aircraft with minimal aerodynamic drag.
          And as you can see, the Americans did this only by the 70s.

          Invisibility will be when the dielectric constant of the volatile is equal to the medium. The Horten brothers ... a little rogue

    I would add here the increase in aircraft production.

      I absolutely agree with this, otherwise why would we need a lot of air-to-air missiles.

    Shhhh .... Just don't tell anyone that all the "stealths" have long been decommissioned and are in museums.

    AFAR on a rocket? Did the author confuse anything? Maybe it is guided according to data from the AFAR of the carrier aircraft?

      Dig into the internet! There are several samples of aircraft missiles with active radar seekers with AFAR, incl. and RVV class!

    As already noted here, the author writes about AFAR on a rocket, but it is not there.

    We have single samples of weapons just super, but there are always problems with mass production and as a result we fight with junk.

      This is what needs to be urgently corrected, we need all these modern types and types of weapons not at military exhibitions, but as part of the units and subunits of our army, so now our main task is to significantly increase the capabilities of the military-industrial complex for the serial production of the most modern weapons, and this must be done in the shortest possible time, without any competitive bidding and bureaucratic delays.

      This technology is easy to propagate. The first one is difficult to create.

    They mobilized a guy from our factory for the second month in tents and live in standby mode and the other day they went to shoot with an RPG of 1970, the result: one broke his arm and the other had his fingers torn off because this junk tore like a rose and the soldier was crippled. All this is window dressing or an isolated case where someone works out everything at the training grounds and everything is of the highest standard there.

    How many such articles were written before, but the SVO showed the real state of affairs ... A video was posted on the telegram channel with the killed soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the assault on Pavlovka and many were surprised by the fact that they did not have shoes.

      Perhaps you can find the answer to some extent here:

    About 15 years ago, with the leading engineers of a very famous Japanese corporation, they were at a Russian factory, they passed by a kung with an antenna, the Japanese began to laugh at the old equipment, but when they were told that this system sees stealth aircraft at a glance, they groaned in unison ... We have everything, we just need to use it correctly! I don’t understand why Poseidons are being tested in our northern seas? It could have been done near Britain, which does not refuse sabotage in the Black Sea, in the Baltic ... We must answer not with tests, or conduct tests so that the enemies feel the power of our weapons on their own skin!

      Those Americans are just stupid, they rivet hundreds of stealths, and you can see them at a glance, the Japanese are also fools, they saw that radar, but they continue to buy f35.

    It's easier to run barefoot... but it didn't work out.
