The French are full of confidence to shoot down Russian hypersonic missiles over Ukraine

34

Large deliveries of highly maneuverable two-stage Italian-French Aster-30 missile defense interceptors for SAMP/T announced in the West by the Armed Forces of Ukraine indicate that Russia’s enemies are seriously preparing to repel the increasing attacks of Russian hypersonic missiles 47M2 Kinzhal and 3M22 Zircon. The ammunition previously transferred by Italy and France for their air defense systems has come to an end, and the Ukrainian air defense system needs urgent replenishment and strengthening.

It should be noted that in the Aster Block 2 BMD version, with an increased speed from 4,5 M to 7 M, Aster-30 missiles have the ability to intercept ballistic ammunition beyond the atmosphere with a range of 3 thousand km. The second stages of the Aster-30, along with the MIM-104F (USA) and 9M96DM (Russia) missiles, are equipped with gas-dynamic nozzle blocks of lateral control engines integrated into the wing planes, providing maneuvering with overloads of up to 62 units, as well as active X-band radar seekers type AD4A. Thanks to this, Aster-30 is highly effective in countering supersonic maneuvering EOS with an image intensifier of up to 0,01 square meters. m, as well as hypersonic missiles of all types.



The French are full of confidence to shoot down Russian hypersonic missiles over Ukraine

Therefore, in those directions where the Italian-French SAMP/T are on duty, it is better to use 3M55 Onyx missiles to carry out strikes. This ammunition has a low-altitude flight profile, which significantly increases the likelihood of overcoming the anti-missile barrier of the SAMP/T air defense system due to the multiple reduction in the “time window” for reaction. This happens due to a decrease in the radio horizon range of the Arabel multifunctional radar for Onyx missiles from sensitive 80-100 km to frivolous 23-27 km. SAM interceptors have not yet been sent in pursuit of Onyx missiles. But the intensive anti-aircraft maneuvering of the 3M55 in any case reduces the likelihood of interception.

We remind you that the head of the French Ministry of Defense, Sebastien Lecornu, in an interview with La Tribune newspaper, spoke about the contents of the new package of military assistance for Ukraine. The list also included Aster 30 in an unknown quantity, which, according to him, Kyiv will receive in the period from 2024 to the beginning of 2025. Considering the recent increased anti-Russian activity in Paris, it is possible that the French make up part of the SAMP/T personnel on Ukrainian territory.

    Time to start using the P-35 on low priority targets to hopefully have the SAMP launchers show themselves. Also, these are French so there is a good chance they don't work.

    I believe that the respect of Europeans for Russians will “wake up” after the animal fear for their lives experienced by the first... Only Russia for some reason endures and waits, although it is high time to hit the suppliers of weapons and military equipment in Europe! At the same time, the European air defense/missile defense system will be checked for lice))

      Stunned, colleague!

      Let's first hit the Khokhlomans, on the borders with Europe, and so that the wind rose will fall on Europe. They already shit themselves.

      What was said on the screen?
      Compare their defense budget and ours?
      In the USA there are 870 billion, in Europe there are 800 billion, and here we have 71 billion.
      (And all these cartoonish super-duper rockets flying to Florida turned out to be fake).
      So move NATO to the borders of 97, forget about it! This is nonsense (that was the wording and that was the word).

    want to throw away $$$? let be! Everything there is three times the price, or more. First they will fire $$$ million rockets at the Geraniums and then try to shoot down the Daggers and Zircons. Many will fly straight to NATO air defense.

    The French are so warlike and aggressive until they have buried all their anti-aircraft gunners, who are planning to come to Ukraine along with their anti-aircraft installations.
    It's as if we never had to reset the French.
    They can’t cope with the Africans at home, but then they go after the Russians?!
    Well, aren't we cretins?!
    Apparently they have forgotten how Russian fans with their bare hands chased all the European fans throughout Paris during the World Cup.

    Judging by the tone of the article, this is a serious weapon, and it should be taken seriously, in any case, until proven otherwise. The French love to cock, of course, so we'll see.

    Can hypersonic missiles be shot down already?!
    The Americans also hoped to shoot down our hypersound and supplied their “Patriots”, and what?! They make new coffins in which they don’t even have anything to put except a new uniform and a photo of a rocket scientist torn into atoms!
    To shoot down hypersound, you need another hypersound. That is, mattress pads cannot create hypersound, but pasta paddling pools suddenly could?! Mach 7 is not hypersonic.

      Hypersound, it is only in the upper layers of the atmosphere, and when descending it is already 2-3M, in addition, a counter-missile with a counter course does not need to have hypersound, and it can also maneuver. Therefore, there is no need to throw hats, you might end up in a puddle. The French have serious weapons, but they are few and capricious. Let's see.

          I taught this equipment at the military department for 6 years. A kinetic interceptor can meet the object being destroyed at any speed, this object will kill itself with its speed on the blank of the kinetic interceptor, the main thing is to bring it to the meeting point. And this is solved at once. American Patriot-PAC3, French Aster Block 2, there are many nuances, for example, the price ratio of the interceptor and the target, overflow, etc.

            Barabas, that’s the point. Non-hypersonic air defense will not have time to reach the desired point, and will not have time to maneuver if the target maneuvers.

            Just learn the materiel!

            If someone Barabas

            taught materiel at the military department for 6 years

            then Baron Munchausen himself is now nervously smoking on the sidelines - it wouldn’t even occur to him to lie like that. The military service lasted 4, rarely 5, semesters, and they don’t leave universities for the second or third year, not to mention four. So the following smart, beautiful words can be ignored.

    Unknown author! This ammunition has a different flight profile. As you order. Zircon also has a different flight profile, depending on the task.
