In Video: Russian UAVs Painting Targets For Krasnopol Laser-Guided Artillery Rounds In Syria

Donate

A new video showing Russian operations against terrorists in Syria. The video shows how Russian UAVs paint targets for artillery strikes with 12mm Krasnopol laser-guided artillery rounds.

Several Russian and Soviet-made 152mm artillery guns can launch the advanced shell, which is guided by semi-active laser. Krasnopol has a range of 20km and can hit its targets with a pin-point accuracy.

According to the available information, Russian forces in Syria are employing the Krasnopol with the 2S19 Msta-S self-propelled howitzer. This type of howitzers was seen in the Homs desert in late 2017.

Like any other laser-guided weapon, the Krasnopol’s target should be illuminated with laser. The Malakhit portable automated artillery fire control system, which was developed by the KBP Instrument Design Bureau, is usually used to illuminate targets. However, experts believe that Russia has several types of drones, which are capable of illumining targets for the Krasnopol.

Russian forces used the Krasnopol to eliminated a group of militants, which conducted the drone attack on Hmeimim airbase on December 31, 2017. The guided shell was able to hit its targets with great accuracy.

    This a cool way to work around the need for expensive precision guided bombs. Great solution for targets within 20km of the front line. But a bigger yield is needed. Artillery is better than nothing, but you can see from the videos that the explosions are relatively small and would leave many survivors, especially in buildings. Arty is just no substitute for a big, fat bomb…

        Dang, thats more better solution 👍🏻

      “Arty is just no substitute for a big, fat bomb…”

      it is if you consider how many artillery shells you can put downrange for the cost of an air strike. This was done by a barrage from a platoon of Tornado MLRS in Ukraine in 2014. A single platoon of Tornado MLRS wiped out an entire armoured brigade in an attack lasting 3 minutes and 40 rockets. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCIhz-IHzZQ

        Found another video of the tornado in action https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hv9i0zKGAo

          DAMN!

          Russia managed to perfect WW2 Katyusha beautifully.

      • Human kind is doomed

        Tornado or Smerch/Uragan? Tornado is Russian latest!

    • Human kind is doomed

      I think small yields are exactly what is needed in some cases. Keep in mind this is proving ground for Russians and win win for Russia and Syria. There are tons of vids of Russian VKS obliterates terrorists with smart bombs, huge smart bombs, also a proving ground, also a win win situation!

    • Lone Ranger

      They have smart bombs, but thats cheaper.
      And you dont even need a jet in the air.

  • Prince Teutonic

    This is nothing compared to M982 Excalibur which has 40 – 57 km range…

    • Human kind is doomed

      Exactly the same just cheaper!

      Do you sell HIV?

      • John Wallace

        No they don’t sell it but give it away for free but you should see the cost of the cure they offer afterwards.

      • gustavo

        Maybe gonorrhoea or siphilis.

    Seriously, the goat fucker coward ErDog should be ashamed for having the third rate Turkeys killed and also the brainwashed Wahhabi cannon fodder in Syria and Libya. The FACT of the matter is that these stupid terrorist fuckers have no chance of surviving against the Russian superpower with space age technology and determined axis of resistance allies on the ground. As I have posted before, the Russian force posture in Syria is now gearing for the offensive as the terrorist enclave is shrinking and there is no hope that the Americunt arseholes who are imploding with the Jew fanned virus can do anything to help either the stupid Turkeys or the headchoppers. The Russian Federation Areospace Forces have total control of the skies. The Turkeys with their 40 year old F-16 will be blown out of the sky even before the landing gear is up. The new generation of Russian missiles is a generation ahead of expensive Americunt Junk AIM-120 on the F-16 flying coffins. In the 4.5 generation air superiority fighters there is no equal to the SU-35S Super Flanker now deployed in Syria at two air bases.

    The only logical option for the headchoppers in to either surrender or die, and even a better and more convenient option is to disapprear in Turkey and create a blowback for the ErDOG moron.
