The latest airborne self-propelled anti-tank missile system “Kornet-D1” for the Russian Airborne Forces has begun final firing tests, and the car is also undergoing laboratory and road tests. AiF.ru found out the features of this complex and is it able to withstand the advertised American Javelin.
Broadcasting Company “Kornet-D1” developed at the Instrument Design Bureau im. Academician Shipunov. These weapons are used to destroy armored targets, including those equipped with reactive armor. Its modern version is capable of destroying air targets. It is assumed that the Kornet-D1 complexes will enter the Russian troops before the middle of the year 2023.
At the moment, the complex is being created for two variants of transporters: the wheelbase of the Tigr-M armored car; and tracked base of the BMD-4M airborne combat vehicle. ATGM “Kornet-D1” developed for the benefit of anti-tank artillery units of the airborne forces. “Cornet-D1” for the airborne forces is placed on the BMD-4M chassis, which allows it to be parachuted. One of the features — it is the possibility of parachuting with the crew.
According to laser beam
According to the developers, the complex was created practically from scratch, from the Cornet only the in-flight missile control system remained there. The combat vehicle has two automated launchers, each of which can steer its own target, even though they are spaced apart in range, forward and height. The missile is guided by a laser beam. The fire can be fired in all weather conditions and at different times of the day. The automatic tracking machine allows you to direct missiles to the target without the participation of the operator. In addition, the complex provides for a remote ATGM launcher, which can be used simultaneously with automated launchers.
Powerful and long-range
Firing range “Cornet-D1” is respectively eight and ten kilometers for anti-tank missiles with tandem and thermobaric cumulative warheads, while in previous versions it is 5.5 km. In the second case, the missile is also capable of hitting low-speed air targets, including drones, for this, remote detonation is used.
The platoon commander's vehicle was also developed separately. In addition to launchers, it is equipped with reconnaissance and target designation equipment. To operate the new complex, it will be necessary to retrain gunners, as well as commanders of vehicles and combat units. Now this is actively continuing at the Omsk Airborne Training Center. For the love of “Cornet-D1” the center has doubled cadet registration and more than doubled the list of military registration specialties.
Competition with Javelin
The firing range of the Russian ATGM “Kornet-D1” 4 times greater than the firing range of the Javelin (it has this parameter of 2.5 kilometers). The armor protection of the Russian design is also better: 1150 millimeters against 800-900 for the American ATGM. It's time to launch — this is another advantage of the Kornet-D1. Its operator, as soon as he locates the target, can immediately fire. Javelin needs about 30 seconds before launch for the homing head to cool down, then it's ready to track the target and aim the missile at it.
The main difference— They are guidance systems. The flight of the “Kornet-D1” rocket corrected using a laser beam directed from the launcher to the sensor located in the tail of the missile until the target is hit. In addition, the theft can be corrected at any time, such a system being less susceptible to interference. The downside is that the shooter must stay at the launch site before hitting.
The Javelin's homing head is located within the missile itself. It determines the target by infrared and thermal radiation, it allows you to implement the “shoot and forget” principle, which increases the chances of surviving and hiding from a retaliatory strike for the shooter. Javelin guidance is susceptible to interference: a strong smoke screen or special metallic spray will blind the “Smart US Missile”.
The Javelin can only fire a single missile at a target, which in some cases can reduce the effectiveness of its use. U ATGM “Kornet-D1” to combat active defense systems with which tanks are equipped, self-propelled versions of the complexes provide for the “Tandem” mode: two missiles are fired with a difference of less than ;one second, and if the first missile is disoriented by active protection, then the second will pierce the armor of the “naked” Char.
It is also significant that the Javelin is the most expensive anti-tank missile system in history. According to various sources, its cost with a set of six missiles ranges from 600 thousand dollars to almost 1.5 million. Russian ATGM “Kornet-D1” at least 7 times cheaper.

Heroes – all is said
From the metro station “Dostoyevskaya” groups of young people with red carnations go to the monument. We don't build, that's quite obvious. We just came because we wanted to. “Yesterday, our student council president said that on Defender of the Fatherland Day, you can lay flowers on this monument, – said a third-year student from the State University of Technology and management of Moscow.RazumovskyAnastasia Buchatskaya. – We agreed to meet here, so we are waiting for the action to start. I study computer science and computer engineering, my friends – of “food” Faculty. But we know Suvorov well – we were told in detail about the exploits performed in the lessons on the history of Russia. His life is impressive, not a single battle lost!

&ldash;Suvorov– he's someone you can try to be like. What if he lived over two hundred years ago? Heroes – that says it all, – says the head of the «City of Heroes Moscow» Dmitri Kurbanov. The project brings together people aged 14 to 35 who address the theme of “everyday heroism”. They get to know people who suddenly faced a difficult situation and achieved a feat, record interviews with them, and then publish them on the Internet. “A hero can be a 16 year old boy – he helped a subway passenger who accidentally fell on the tracks. Or a bone marrow donor who one day decided to join the National Donor Registry, – gives examples Dmitry. – You communicate with them and wonder: after all, in some cases there was no time for reflection, and the person, without hesitation, simply saved the stranger.

Commemorative plaque on each house
Battle of Kozludzhi and Rymnik, Battle of Kinburn, Italian Campaign – on the Suvorov battlefields you can enthusiastically engage in geography and history. And if, at the mention of the name of the Generalissimo, these key battles will immediately come to mind only by connoisseurs, then the capture of Ishmael and the crossing of the Alps are known to everyone, as well as the famous “ It's hard” by Suvorov to learn – easy to fight.
In a recent speech to Russian citizens, Vladimir Putindrew attention to the significance of this historical figure. “Let me remind you that in the 18th century soldiersof Alexander Suvorov fought for this city, – the president said about Ochakov. – Thanks to their courage, it became part of Russia. Then, in the 18th century, the lands of the Black Sea region, annexed to Russia as a result of wars with the Ottoman Empire, were called Novorossiya. Now they are trying to forget about these historical milestones, as well as the names of the state military figures of the Russian Empire, without whose work modern Ukraine does not exist. #39;would not have many large cities and even the very exit to the Black Sea. Recently, a monument to Alexander Suvorov was demolished in Poltava. What can I say?”
It is worth noting that the places of Suvorov's campaigns are treated with respect even abroad. For example, the correspondent of “AiF” I wrote about the Swiss local historian Walter Geler,who opened a private museum in the town of Lintale in the canton of Glarus and runs free tours himself (the museum has now moved to the canton of Uri). Mr. Geler amazes Russians who go there by the attitude of foreigners towards the Russian military leader. A memorial plaque hangs on every house where Suvorov spent at least one day. Geler explored the area with a mine detector for 40 years and collected a rich collection of artifacts: remnants of weapons, cannonballs, bullets, equipment. He was accused of “black digging” and demanded to hand over the finds, but won in court.

Meanwhile, in Russia, several years ago, enthusiasts from different cities, including residents of Moscow, set out to restore the Temple of Basil the Great erected by Suvorov in the village of Kistish in the Suzdal district of the Vladimir region, from archival documents. In the family domain, offered by Peter Ito Suvorov's grandfather, the military leader came only to visit. His grandfather and father lived there permanently. After the death of his father, in memory of him, Alexander Vasilyevich erected the temple of Basil the Great. In 1928, the church is closed, the bell tower explodes. Even 10 years ago, the temple was threatened with complete destruction. Rescue work carried out with donations revived it.
