      So, Worse Korea just copied the US ATACMS BAT, that became the GBU-44b Viper Strike and are claiming it is something new? It was an outgrowth of Assault Breaker. Next, they'll be loading a copy of LOCAAS into them, calling it revolutionary. Asians literally can't into innovation, none of them, no matter where they're from.

        Difference is SK puts this system into service.

        But yeah, modern take on LOCAS is long overdue. Progress in civilian drones and their systems (motors, batteries, actuators, cameras, image recognition, control systems etc) surpaced everything military could dream about 20 years ago.

        >The GBU-44/B Viper Strike glide bomb was a GPS-aided laser-guided variant of the Northrop Grumman Brilliant Anti-Tank (BAT) munition which originally had a combination acoustic and infrared homing seeker. The system was initially intended for use from UAVs, and it was also integrated with the Lockheed AC-130 gunship, giving that aircraft a precision stand-off capability.[1] The Viper Strike design is now owned by MBDA.
        Hardly even the same, one is a self-propelled UAV and the other is a glided bomb. Korea had developed its own glided bomb KGGB a decade ago, which is equivalent to the SDB. To say that this is the same as is like saying GLSDB is the same system as Switchblade 600 which is completely ignoring the technological leap of 2 decades.

            >Moreover, Durability Tests need to be carried out again in different terrain and weather conditions with the Korean Powerpack equipped ALTAY prototypes for qualification purposes. This process is expected to take an average of 3-6 months. During the System Qualification and Acceptance Tests under Phase-I of the ALTAY MBT Project, 10,000 km Durability and Mobility Tests were carried out with the PV1 prototype in various terrain and season/weather conditions. During the tests, the MTR and FTR pre-prototypes and the PV1 and PV2 prototypes covered approximately 26,000 km in total. According to İsmail DEMİR, if the Korean Powerpack performs successfully in the tests, it will be possible to use it in the Serial Production process in two years, following its certification for the ALTAY MBT. However, in order not to experience new delays in the Serial Production process planned as T0+24 months and to achieve the monthly production speed of 6 units as committed under the contract, the deliveries of other critical subsystems other than the powerpack must also be in line with the ALTAY MBT Serial Production schedule
            They are literally volunteering for this task free of charge, because they're more dire than anyone else since the fate of the Altay project, and even more so the fate of Turkish arms industry as a whole depends on the result of it, so all their fingers crossed on it at the moment. Also, Poles never ask for qualities, they just keep hoarding, since they're already too busy dealing with other urgent so it wasn't really about which vehicle has the most superb overall ability, but it's all down to who is able to make the fastest delivery, and it just happened to be South Korea.

                A transmission is a far cry from a state of the art axial flow turbine engine, which needs robust materials' knowledge, R&D efforts, and reliable manufacturing abilities. Just the metallurgical composition of a modern single crystal turbine blade can take years to perfect. You may know it's composition, but not the manufacturing secrets behind it to produce a reliable high quality product from it, without a 75% rejection yield. Add to it after you do that, you still need to figure out what the ceramic coating of the blade consists of, and the application methods involved. That's not even getting into CMC's, and MMC's. They lack the material science foundation needed, and the decades of manufacturing knowledge taking advantage of that MS foundation.

      if these are comparable to green dragon or hero why fire them from a ballistic missile and not just give them more fuel and have them fly into the target area?
      ballistic missiles are easily spotted on air defense radars and can be intercepted by SAM sites. a hero or green dragon munition can fly low where detection is unlikely.

    isnt this just a more complicated version of the EFP skeet artillery?
    basically this

    only instead of just spinning around searching for targets they fly around with little wings and engines searching for targets.

    this is just my speculation ofc but is there actually any remote control or telemetry between the munition and the user? if not it's not what would be classically classified as a loitering munition

            For the period 2017 to 2021 the total arms export industry was $27 billion, the US had a 39% market share with $10.6 billion.

            The top 10:
            1 US: $10.6 billion
            2 Russia: $5.2 billion
            3 France: $3.0 billion
            4 China: $1.3 billion
            5 Germany: $1.2 billion
            6 Italy: $0.8 billion
            7 UK: $0.8 billion
            8 SK: $0.8 billion
            9 Spain: $0.7 billion
            10 Israel: $0.7 billion

            But in 2022, SK major arms sales to Poland, Australia, and several other countries has their arms exports already approaching $10+ billion, with several other major weapons systems becoming available for export over the next few years this figure is expected to more than double, SK is easily the second largest exporter now, particularly with the sanctions on Russia, but the trend that the mic sector is buzzing about is that its going to be a US + SK arms export world for the foreseeable future

      They're not quite exactly the same since a loitering ammunition is going to have a much greater range with its own propulsion, also Korea's already got its own dronecopters that are both manportable and clustered.

      if these are comparable to green dragon or hero why fire them from a ballistic missile and not just give them more fuel and have them fly into the target area?
      ballistic missiles are easily spotted on air defense radars and can be intercepted by SAM sites. a hero or green dragon munition can fly low where detection is unlikely.

      The longest range for KTSSM is 300km. Imagine covering that range with weakly powered UAVs without getting detected.

        this is just my speculation ofc but is there actually any remote control or telemetry between the munition and the user? if not it's not what would be classically classified as a loitering munition

        no way a loitering munition is gonna get used so far away without direct LOS communication.

          >thats no problem to cover 300km with a drone without being detected given that you have a way to communicate with it.
          What? Are you seriously thinking it will be used by a nation with only ground controls?
          >what gets spotted and probably intercepted is shooting a ballistic missile dozens of km up in the air.
          Yeah, which will get evaporated by other missiles in advance to the mission is so really not a big issue.
          >the munitions will loiter at an altitude of 0.5km. at this altitude the distance to the horizon is 80km which is far shorter than the 300km range of the launch vehicle. it means you cant communicate with them directly in any way.

            I...I'm gonna SWARRRRRRRRRRM!

            its being compared to green dragon and hero 120 neither of which have satcom because loitering munitions are usually too small and cheap to have satcom.

              Why are they all like this?
              >green dragon and hero 120 neither of which have satcom
              >implying having a similar flight characteristics = same config.
              Different purpose, different demands.

              There are currently hand sized starlink nodes sold for a dime. You may need to revise your perception.

      It does seem a bit redundant. If you have a rocket the size of an ATACMS or whatever, then it is clear the targets have already been identified prior to launching, unless it is solely designed as a weapon fired when all you have is a best guess

      Yeap. Only it scans for targets 10000 times larger area

    Why the fuck did South Korea just suddenly emerge as a huge weapons developer? Are they planning to invade the North or something?

      I think they want to take over Russia’s MIC markets

      For the period 2017 to 2021 the total arms export industry was $27 billion, the US had a 39% market share with $10.6 billion.

      The top 10:
      1 US: $10.6 billion
      2 Russia: $5.2 billion
      3 France: $3.0 billion
      4 China: $1.3 billion
      5 Germany: $1.2 billion
      6 Italy: $0.8 billion
      7 UK: $0.8 billion
      8 SK: $0.8 billion
      9 Spain: $0.7 billion
      10 Israel: $0.7 billion

      But in 2022, SK major arms sales to Poland, Australia, and several other countries has their arms exports already approaching $10+ billion, with several other major weapons systems becoming available for export over the next few years this figure is expected to more than double, SK is easily the second largest exporter now, particularly with the sanctions on Russia, but the trend that the mic sector is buzzing about is that its going to be a US + SK arms export world for the foreseeable future

        So SK is either #1 or #2 in MIC sector arms exports now? Interesting

    The whole "NK will level Seoul" is just a meme that only retards actually believe in. Take one look at SK missile capabilities and you'll see that the opposite is much more likely.

    The point of switchblade is that it's man portable. You wouldn't replace it with a truck mounted ballistic missile.
