          We had a video of then firing grads at Crimea iirc. There was a video of them lining a crosshair up with an onscreen compass and firing at land freehandedly like they do with helicopters

            I thought they might have just been the little RPV-16 thermobaric warheads from a kilometre or so out. Which is not what you want landing in the 'hood, but a grad-strike is a whole scale up in gratuitous destruction

            They'll use these against Russian shore installations? Do they have the range to go all the way around Crimea to the Russian Black Sea shore and return?

            They might actually, he rockets are probably lighter than the 850kg bomb they strap them up with normally. So sub in the fuel it should be alright

      I think this is the plan, although in this case the point-blank range will be several hundred meters long.

    Guess its not real accurate, but on the other hand its hard to defend against something 15k's offshore just chucking rockets and trololol's the frick out of there before anything can respond.
    I mean, if it was a real country they could have patrol boats out there to stop them...

      I wonder if, after Ukraine sinks most of the BSF, and starts YEETing 9M22 rockets at shore bases,
      Will Russia then wake up & start trying to beat Ukraine at its own naval drone game?
      Or will Russia just pout with its thumb up its ass

        I dunno, on something like a built-strategy of maritime drones they're over 2 years behind and don't really have a Ukrainian navy to pick on. The fact they had to go buy something like the Shasneeds off Iran is sort of not a good sign that anyone in Russia can design and prototype anything, let along bring it into mass production without the massive intellectual and industrial prowess of the middle eastern aerospace industry.

    Are these "abandoned" after firing their rockets, or do they return, get reloaded/refueled and used again?

      They're probably full of explosive themselves, and will just sale into a Russian port looking for easy fruit.

          I guess it depends on what the use case is. I was assuming it was to attack a point target inland, but if it's a close range ship target then it's probably not worthless. probably a decent thing to mix in with the direct contact attack boats. I doubt defenses would be as effective after a few grads hit the super structure.

    we have our shore bombardment and AA protection (although without at least one IR missile pointed backwards, it's been pretty damn easy for Russian Navy helicopters to park themselves between 3 and 9 o'clock and sink the drone with the door gun)
    What's next? Long endurance drone with Magnetic Anomaly detection and a depth charge, to hunt some subs? It would need to be able to do striping patrols autonomously (give it a square to patrol and it goes up and down by itself only opening a control connection to the operator if it's attacked or needs permission to drop the charge)

        someone post it, please. it's got to be a cat.moe because hiromoot's file size doesn't last for two minutes. All I've seen is a few seconds of shooting
        Still, letting your opponent get behind you and fire at will without being able to fire back is never good. Even if we're talking about Russians, you can't count on all of them being drunk, nearsighted, in alcoholic tremors, or unable to hit the side of a barn.

    My guess is that they will use it to saturate air/naval defenses around contested zones like the Kerch bridge or naval bases, while AA is busy with cheap junk grad missiles, the actual heavy/accurate hitters will do the job. I don't know what they use to defend against boat drones at sea but my guess is that it might also be useful to make sure that more swarms of suicide drones packed full of explosives get to their inteded targets.

      From the videos, a significant fraction of the Russian navy's drone defence is autocannons and dudes standing on deck with rifles. Being able to dump a bunch of missiles at even 1km is probably enough to drastically improve success rates.

    Seems useless. You probably couldn’t hit anything with those due to these tiny boats bobbing over waves as they do — which seems fine because they’re going to ram a giant warhead into their target anyway, making the rockets superfluous. It seems more of a thing to do simply because they can. Putting MANPADS on them is the more useful mod.

    Also, it’s crazy to learn how the Russian navy apparently doesn’t do large-caliber naval guns anymore. All Western combat shits have at least a 30mm autocannon or similar but Russians seem only to do machine gun fire to stop these drones, shit is wild. I wonder if the Iranian speedboat swarm would unironically defeat the Black Sea Fleet.

    What if Ukraine made these larger, like big enough to be manned by people? They could do away with the remote guidance and have the targeting done in real time as they're launched. Make them bigger and you could outfit them with armor, radar, self-defense weapons, etc. Maybe guided missiles and heavy artillery. Even a place to land a helicopter. I feel I'm on to something here. I don't know no one's had this idea before.

    I think that the more and more advanced maritime drones become, the less navies will have to rely on smaller frigates. There will be a point where a drone carrier group, with a mother ship containing a couple dozen of these will be the little brother to a traditional carrier group.

    Regarding their lack of accuracy, it's possible these aren't really meant to hit anything anyway. A few of these lighting off just before your cruise missiles enter their terminal guidance phase to inundate the targets SHORAD might be effective

      Before these things, suicide drones had to physically touch the target to damage it.
      Now, they can just come into say 200 yards and let rip with a volley of high explosive rockets
      It's taken away that last 200 yards of time the ship has to destroy the drone.
      That's not insignificant.
