All the pictures you post here friends have the same cockpit.Three displays front and three displays at the back cockpit.And I would like to remember you this aircraft will use training pilots for the PAK-FA.And in my opinion also for Ruaf version all it's displays must be digital.
It flys directly towards the target from the helo. The helo will not be high up so the trajectory will be practically horizontal.One question to ATGM.
If a chopper is attacking a ground target like a tank.
Does the rocket hits the tank on the top of it ?
Where the armor is the weakest, or from the side ?
And can ATAKA handle it with a M1A2 ?
A clean strike should result in a penetration of 800mm behind ERA, so the Abrams will be vulnerable from the side and the rear but unless it hits a weak point it will not be too vulnerable from the front.
Of course if you are hunting tanks then a few Su-25s with cluster bombs with the SBPE sensor fused submunition would be the solution. It is fitted with an IIR seeker and a MMW radar to detect metal objects that generate heat (ie tanks) and attack them from the top with explosively formed penetrators called SFF or self forging fragments.
For the really tough super tank of course there is always the TV or laser guided Kh-29 with a 317kg shaped charge HE warhead that is designed to undermine the concrete foundations of a large solid concrete bridge and would wreck any armoured vehicle now or in the future. All up weight of 600kgs and a 10km range it should be effective should the Kh-25 with its 90kg warhead prove insufficient.
Thank you very much for the answear GazB !!!!!!!
Do you have some information how much RHA are this sensor fused submunition penetrating ?
As far as i know Smerch does have some rockets with it (9M55K1)
But they can only penetrate 70mm oO ?
And do you know the name of russian "bombs" with it ?
Russian helicopters flying with landing gear down might have something to do with improvements introduced during the Afghan War. When Taliban got Stingers, Soviets adopted the strategy of flying very low to avoid missile lock. Landing gear was improved as a consequence, to allow the crew to survive sudden engine failures or missile hits (5-6 meter falls). It would seem logical that during low-level, low-speed test flights landing gear stays down as a passive safety measure.
