 The Naga conflict patrol missiles are brilliant and will have a profound impact on the armys tactics


This is a scene of the conflict in Naka. In this conflict, the Azerbaijani army sent out a large number of patrol missiles and UAVs to attack the Armenian army, which is also a major feature of the conflict.

It will have an important impact on military tactics and the development of army weapons when patrol missiles go to the battlefield and use in a large range. The offensive and defensive technology game of patrol missiles will be more intense.

The Azerbaijani army used a large number of habi - 2 patrol missiles in the conflict.

Israel launched a large number of patrol missiles in the Naka conflict

On September 27, a new round of conflict broke out between Armenian and Azerbaijani in the Nagorno Karabakh region (hereinafter referred to as Naka region), in which both sides accused each other of violating the cease-fire agreement and taking the lead in launching military attacks. With GDP and defense budget far higher than that of Armenian, Azerbaijani military strength is undoubtedly more powerful. The number of tanks, fighter planes, helicopters, artillery and other main combat weapons exceeds that of Armenian, but the first day of fighting has become a topic of ridicule.

According to a video released by the Armenian Ministry of defense, during the first day of the battle, Armenian troops destroyed a number of Azerbaijani T-72 main battle tanks and btr-82 wheeled armored vehicles. After one tank was hit by anti tank missiles, its ammunition was killed and exploded, and the fire erupted upward. In an ambush, the mechanized convoy of the Afghan army was pinched, leading to other vehicles in the convoy in a dilemma, most of them were destroyed. The videos were widely distributed on social media, and the Azerbaijani army became a laughing stock in online public opinion.

After the Azerbaijani army, which suffered losses in the land war, began to use a large number of patrol missiles and integrated inspection and combat UAVs, which were not only used to attack the tanks, armored vehicles and living forces of the second army, but also to attack the air defense missiles of the second army. According to the video of the return of patrol missile, the patrol missile of the Afghan army successfully destroyed several sa-8 short-range air defense missiles and S-300 long-range air defense missiles. The head of the information service of the Ministry of defense of Azerbaijan, vajif dargahle, said on September 30 that the S-300 air defense missile system deployed by the Armenian army on the contact line in the Naka area has been paralyzed.

According to the comprehensive information, the patrol missiles used by the Afghan army are mainly the habi-2 developed by Israel, while the UAV of integration of inspection and combat is mainly the TB-2 developed by Turkey. Harpy - 2 patrol missile, also known as Halop, was first made public in 2009 and was developed by Israel Aircraft Industry Corporation (IAI). Compared with the harpy anti radiation UAV, the circular main wing of habi-2 has a foldable trapezoid outer wing on its wing tip, a pair of canard wings on its head, and a photoelectric turret under its head. The photoelectric turret integrates a thermal imager and a CCD camera, and the images are sent back to the rear for the operators to select the target.

Harpy-2 cruise missile launched.

In the process of operation, the system will lock the threat and strike it quickly and fatally after it detects the target. The operator can control the cruise missile during the whole process, including terminating the operation at any stage. The patrol missile is driven by electric motor and can perform quiet flight mission. The total weight of patrol missile is 45 kg, which can carry 8 kg shaped charge warhead, and the operational radius can reach 100 km. Patrol missile is usually placed in a sealed launch box. One launch box can hold one patrol missile. Usually, each launch vehicle carries nine launch boxes. The basic fire unit may be composed of launch vehicle, ground control vehicle and its auxiliary equipment. Each subsystem is mounted on the military truck, which has good mobility and concealment. It can be quickly transferred according to the requirements of the battlefield. It has high survival ability and good operational flexibility.

Israel was the first to launch patrol missiles. In fact, habi anti radiation UAV is a patrol missile, but its combat target is relatively single, mainly radar and communication system. Israel has been deeply engaged in the field of cruise missiles for decades, and its product performance is also at the forefront of the worlds advanced level. In recent years, a number of Israeli military enterprises have launched a number of series of patrol missiles, such as habi, hero and green dragon, which sell well at home and abroad. There are many buyers of habi series and Yingxiong series of cruise missiles. There are six models, three short-range models and three long-range models developed by Israels uVision company. At present, two models of hero - 30 and hero - 400 have been developed and verified, hero - 120 is under development, and the other three models are still in the design stage.

Hero - 30 and hero - 120 can be carried by a single soldier. The weight is 3kg, the maximum range is 40km, the patrol flight time is 30 minutes, and the warhead mass is 0.5kg. The combat mission is to attack the active force. Hero - 120 patrol missile weighs 12.5 kg, is designed to deal with buildings and armored targets at close range, equipped with a warhead of 4.5 kg.

Hero series patrol missiles are different in size and operation radius to meet the needs of different customers.

Patrol missiles will affect the way of ground operations

Cruise missile is a kind of new concept ammunition which can cruise and stand by over the target area. According to the use classification, cruise missile can be divided into reconnaissance type and attack type. Reconnaissance cruise missile carries photoelectric, radar and other loads, which can carry out reconnaissance, surveillance, damage assessment and other tasks. However, the biggest difference between attack type patrol missile and reconnaissance type patrol missile is that it adds warhead and attack system to hard kill the target. From this definition, according to the development status of cruise missiles, it can be found that many UAVs can also be classified as patrol missiles, which leads to the fuzziness and generalization of the definition of loitering missiles, and it is impossible to distinguish this new concept ammunition from UAVs (especially gun launched UAVs).

Since patrol missile has been defined as a new concept ammunition, it is obviously different from UAV and conventional precision guided ammunition. Therefore, reconnaissance cruise missile should be classified into UAV family, while loitering missile should be classified into ammunition family with damage capability. According to the current situation of technology development, patrol missiles can be classified into primary patrol missiles and advanced patrol missiles. The intelligent technology of primary patrol missiles is limited, equipped with two-way data link and manual intervention to participate in guidance. In addition, anti radiation UAV is also a primary patrol missile due to its low requirements for intelligent technology. The most important characteristic of advanced patrol missile is intelligence, that is, it can search, identify and attack targets independently in the target area, and has strong independent combat capability. In addition, it can also be equipped with data link, and can be manually involved in striking targets under special circumstances.

It is very convenient to carry individual patrol missiles.

Cruise missile is the product of the integration of advanced UAV technology, precision guided ammunition technology and cruise missile technology. It has many characteristics of both missile and UAV technology. The single use characteristic of cruise missile determines its simple structure and low cost. As a high-tech integration, it involves small low thrust long endurance power technology, guidance and control technology and other high-tech fields. The United States was the first country to put forward the concept of cruise missile in 1994. At present, there are at least 14 countries in the world, including Israel, the United States, the United Kingdom and Russia and other traditional arms powers.

Although there are many kinds of patrol missiles launched by various countries, and they are also frequent visitors of international arms exhibitions, countries have not equipped this new weapon in large quantities. The extensive use of the Naka conflict will give the armed forces and arms companies a good opportunity to evaluate and analyze the weapons. From the perspective of Naka conflict, the cooperation between loitering missiles and UAVs has caused considerable losses to the party with limited air defense capability. As the runner up cannot effectively deal with loitering missiles and UAVs, its tanks, armored vehicles, supply lines and air defense facilities have been attacked. Moreover, when using patrol missiles and UAVs, the Afghan army mainly hunts the second armys air defense system, such as S-300 air defense missile and sa-8 air defense Missiles and mosquito repellent UAV jamming devices have been attacked. After the destruction of these relatively high-end air defense systems, the Afghan armys patrol missiles, UAVs and artillery are more reckless to attack other targets of the second army, showing a one-sided posture. In the past two days, the runner up began to use some guns in stock and mobilize veterans to participate in the war, which also showed that the continuous air attack of the Afghan army for many days caused considerable losses to the runner up.

Laser weapon is an effective means to deal with loitering missiles.

Patrol missile is an information-based weapon, which can play an important role in the future information-based battlefield. With the development of cruise missile technology and the reduction of cost, patrol missile can participate in weapon system confrontation, and long-range (operational radius of 300 km) patrol missile can penetrate into the enemys shallow and deep zone, waiting for opportunity to attack enemy army command post, air defense facilities, short-range ballistic missiles and long-range While the medium range (100-200 km) cruise missiles can also attack the above targets, the individual patrol missiles can directly attack the tactical targets such as tanks and armored vehicles, cooperate with long-range artillery, the armys observation and combat integration UAV and armed helicopter to provide air support to ground forces, and reduce the dependence on air force aviation to a certain extent.

The development of anti cruise missile technology will also be stimulated by the brilliant performance of patrol missile in Naka conflict. In fact, the current patrol missiles can be classified as low slow small targets. Therefore, the anti low slow small target technology and anti UAV bee colony attack technology can still be used to defend this weapon. Because of the low altitude, small volume, complex low altitude environment and ground object occlusion, it is difficult to be detected by most radar and detection equipment. Even if it is found, it is not easy to carry out effective countermeasures. Therefore, the air defense of low altitude slow small aircraft is a worldwide problem. The problem of detection must be solved first. Because of its small target characteristics, special high-precision detection radar and photoelectric detection equipment must be used.

Although the traditional air defense missiles can also be used to intercept cruise missiles, the consumption ratio is not high. We should develop some low-cost interception weapons similar to Iron Dome, and integrate anti-aircraft guns for interception. The laser weapon attacking the target at the speed of light basically does not need to calculate the advance. The laser with strong directivity has high interception accuracy and can intercept multiple targets in a short time. The cost of a single interception of laser weapons is only a few dollars. When intercepting, there will be no debris, and the damage is small. It is very suitable for intercepting low-cost aircraft such as small UAVs. In addition to hard killing, soft killing is also a means to deal with loitering missiles. By interfering with the communication links of loitering missiles, patrol missiles become headless flies and can not effectively complete their tasks.
