      there's no way they were actually aiming at the drone right? It just happened to be loitering in the flight path, right?
      A mach 2 missile with a 10km range is insane to waste on little observation drone.

        Well, imagine you are a mobik with two weeks of training shoved into AA vehicle. Suddenly you hear your spotter screaming "DRONE DRONE" and pointing out. Do you fire your missile?

        Chances are the missile costs less than the damage that little observation drone could do if it starts calling in some tungsten rain or a swarm of angry bees with rpg warheads strapped to them. Given all the drone footage I've seen I can't really blame anyone on either side for going full

    Isn't this like, the second time a Strela-10 has missed a drone like this? I remember there being a higher quality video with a different missile trajectory also being like this, and also being from a Strela-10.

          from r*ddit so take as you will:

          >This is mostly a problem for the more modern Strela-10. The older and less advanced Strela-2 doesn't have this same issue hitting small drones.

          The modern Strela-10 employs proportional navigation, which aims to calculate an intercept point and then fly directly towards that point - which is more efficient than the older persuit navigation at hitting moving targets, which fly "directly" towards the target rather than to an intercept point. Proportional navigation however requires the missile to be able to estimate both the angular rate of change and the distance to the target (more specifically the closure rate), which passive infrared systems are forced to attempt to do using other means than something like a radar guided missile - which can measure the return time of a reflected radar wave.
          The 9m37 uses change in target size as part of its method for estimating the closure rate and optimise it's intercept point calculation.

          The US Stinger solves this issue of estimating closure rate by instead relying on a very accurate inertial navigation system to keep track of how much it has changed direction and how fast it's currently going itself.

          While the Stinger's seeker is locked to the target and tracking the angular rate of change of the target, it performs an intentional curve away from the target, and compares how the angular rate of change of the target was influenced by that known change to it's own flight path, which basically let's it use trigonometry to estimate the distance to the target. That part of the reason why you usually see stingers make what appears to be an over-correction initially before turning back into the target.

            The missile knows where it is at all times. It knows this because it knows where it isn't.

          I remembered it getting closer because I'm sure we had a conversation at the time about how the IR seeker could track the drone but the proximity fuze wasn't getting enough for a reading.

            Strelas missiles in addition to IR seeker channel have also optical channel that tracks contrast (dark on bright ie drone over sky background) objects. It's well suited for drones.

              That's great for finding the target but can they tell when they get there?

                What I'm hearing is, it's a wise missile that knows what it wants but it's a wiser missile that knows when it has it.

      here's the thing, if the 5000 dollar drone is going to direct a 500 dollar artillery shell to blow up your 5000000 dollar air defense vehicle, a 40000 dollar missile is a good investment.
      that being said, it's only a good investment IF IT FRICKING HITS.

        i guess it's not the same when you target armoured vehicles vs AD. since armoured vehicles can't protect themselves from drones. the idea is to keep the launcher preoccupied trying to take down one missile. also the weapon used here is a technically a missile but i guess you could call it a drone: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delilah_(missile)
