The Russian Armed Forces will soon receive an anti-tank missile system with a range of 100 km


Russian gunsmiths are preparing to transfer the Hermes multi-purpose missile system to the Russian Armed Forces. Sources report that several prototypes of the modernized complex have passed all the necessary tests and that industrial production will soon begin.


The tested ATGMs are equipped with updated hardware components and the source code of the fire control system. The range of action of "Hermes" when used from an air carrier ("Hermes-A") reaches 100 km, in the ground version ("Hermes-K") this figure is 35-50 km.

Such a high range is ensured by the presence of a bi-caliber two-stage missile design with a high-speed 2nd combat stage of increased ballistics. The missile externally resembles the 57E6-E anti-aircraft missile of the Pantsir-S1 air defense complex.

At the moment, over-the-horizon targets are destroyed by illuminating objects with a semi-active laser seeker, which is carried out by laser target designators on the Orlan-30 or ZALA 421-16E HD unmanned vehicles. In conjunction with these UAVs, the complexes can defeat enemy armored vehicles on the approaches to the borders of the Russian Federation.

In addition, the Hermes-K complexes will be able to effectively counteract Ukrainian surface drones of the Magura-5 type. In cooperation with the 3M47 Gibka and AK-630M1-2 Hermes, they are capable of minimizing the threat of Russian boats being hit by the enemy.

    100 km for anti-tank missiles is very good. In this case, the charge is combined with a kinetic impact. It is important that such weapons are available in abundance.

      Should there be a gunner 100 km from the missile launch site and aim the missile at the tank?

          Crap ! Well, we screwed it up in this article! Almost everything..."topsy-turvy"...(when compared with the technical specifications of the “zero” years)! 1. "Hermes-K" is a ship-based (stationary) complex; and not ground at all! 2. The Hermes ground-based systems have a range of up to 100 km, because they are equipped with a 210-mm upper stage! The missiles of the Hermes-A aviation complex are equipped with a 170-mm upper stage and have a shorter range, despite their “aviation”! 3. Only a laser seeker is reported, but where did the other 2 go? There were 3(!) different seekers in development... and development has been going on since the beginning of this century! Didn’t have time in so many years? belay
          4. What nonsense is this about the fight against the Ukrainian fire brigade? Yes... it is possible to use "Hermes" against sea targets; but like other naval and aviation weapons of the "ship-to-ship", "shore-to-ship", "air-to-ship", "air-to-surface" class... But " Hermes is not “sharpened” specifically for fighting fire ships! (I do not rule out that this “specialization” will perhaps be introduced with appropriate modernization; but I don’t think this has been done now! Moreover, high-speed fire ships are just a very inconvenient target for “Hermes”, given the specifics of the fundamental design of the rocket.. .)

    You read news like this and...
    On the one hand, there is pride in the native military-industrial complex, and on the other hand, it’s impossible to get rid of “muddy” thoughts, such as what kind of “geniuses” from the Ministry of Defense responsible for the development and supply of weapons give orders for the development of such weapons for the FIGHTING ARMY. An army that has a critical shortage of modern electronic warfare equipment, communications, counter-battery warfare, anti-drone warfare and much more that has long been developed and is waiting for the hour when these “geniuses” deign to evaluate all this and arrange delivery.
    At one time, J.V. Stalin, until the troops were saturated with the necessary amount of equipment, prohibited all development of new, even very promising models. Personally, I think this is correct.

    They have been writing about Hermes since 2000. It’s not even a long-term construction anymore, it’s just some kind of artifact

    And what targets will it be shot at? It's a little expensive against armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles. And equipment is probably hidden in urban areas and warehouses at night.

    Destroying all tanks within 100 km of the front is a GOOD idea! But not only tanks, but self-propelled guns too.
    Well, different vehicles - with landing troops - will also do!

    And right from Shoigu’s office it will be possible to make fun of tanks? Well then, it’s clear why he sat the colonels in front of the screens in the situation center. Apparently, even then there were plans for a miracle weapon with different physical principles.

    It’s been thirty years since they’ve been receiving it and they can’t get it all.

    The last lines in the article are sadness, similar to a cap of deceit, the Black Sea Fleet is a witness to this.

    The coalition has been going to the front for 10 years, but never gets there. And here's another new thing for you
