Cuddles the Warmonger

American vs. Sov..err Russian Infantry

Recommended Posts

ikalugin,

 

The Avtonomiya placard talks about two missile types: The first is a pure DF weapon with a tandem shaped charge; the second is top attack via overflight and uses, if the table is to be believed, an HE-frag warhead! This may, though, be a poor translation for a EFF warhead. In any event, two missiles or no, you still have no Javelin type diving top attack weapon in either model of the Avtonomiya. That's not my opinion. That's what the manufacturer is clearly stating to be true.

Yes you got it more or less right.

 

There are 3 warheads for avtonomya:

- HEAT.

- EFP (for top attack).

- HE-FRAG (for anti infantry duties).

 

True, however to all intents and purposes the result is the same - both missile attack via the weak tank roof.

ikalugin,

 

The intended purpose and hoped for result may be the same, but there is a considerable gap on the Avtonomiya end between the intent for the EFP/SFF warhead equipped version of the missile and the hoped for result--if the target has APS. Or can deploy broadband obscurant in time. Either one can kill Avtonomiya combat effectiveness.

MSV=Мотострелковые Войска=Motorised Rifle Troops.

 

Hmm, I thought this was as known to foreigners as Воздушно-десантные войска.  I guess my perception was wrong again.
