First "Chrysanthemum-S" was developed in the middle 80s. Engaged in the development Kolomna Design Bureau. General Designer, Project Manager — SP Invincible. Well, maybe it gives some magic, but managed to make the spice really invincible weapon, which could match anything from the fact that the population of the earth was created at the time. July 1996 is fully justified. After all, that's when the general public has been demonstrated "Chrysanthemum-C." Under mild floral title was hidden really severe gun — multipurpose missile system capable hit the target at any time of day or at least some, and weather.
No, even the most modern tank armor, could not resist the terrible missile strike force "Chrysanthemum-C." Is no exception and tanks with reactive armor, which has previously demonstrated good results in tests. Obviously, the purpose missile system could become not only tanks, ranging from light and high speed finishing and languid, equipped with heavy armor. Also, "Chrysanthemum-S" can destroy low-flying air targets and low-tonnage surface. Any reinforced concrete structures, in which the enemy fighters were hiding, were also very vulnerable to the destructive power of this weapon.
The basis of "Chrysanthemum-S" is an infantry fighting vehicle having engine capacity of 500 horsepower. Because of this missile system can simply move at a speed of 45 km per hour on a challenging terrain. On the track, she just has a maximum speed of 70 km per hour. With all of this in store decent fuel allows it to overcome without refueling to 600 km! It is also important that the move from traveling state to combat "Chrysanthemum-S" can be surprisingly fast. As a military joke, blossoms "Chrysanthemum" in 20 seconds.
Two missiles constantly ready for battle. And they can run at once, successfully hitting different targets at different distances. This makes the missile especially popular.
The extraordinary power of missiles allows them to penetrate any armor available. A direct collision at an angle of 90 degrees, it can penetrate armor whole width of 1250 mm veiled ERA. Because no matter what the current armor is completely defenseless against this terrible weapon. Well, S.P.Nepobedimy and his team did an unlimited number of combat vehicles, 20 of which eight were accepted for service. But still the best of his creation Sergei Pavlovich said specifically Invincible "chrysanthemum-C."
Well, it's completely justified. After all, did not even mind-boggling penetrative power is the main advantage of this missile system. The most fascinating is the fact that "the chrysanthemum-C" is able to kill the target regardless of whether it behold the operators or not. At the same principal, which prevents Review — mist, fog, snow or a more severe obstacles.
Embody a dream of all the designers allowed the creation of a unique radar system. Radar antenna beam creates an invisible man, acting in the millimeter range. And when the beam is the goal, and rocket start — the unfortunate target has no chance. Issue a smokescreen, agility, speed, or the attempt to escape — nothing will allow her to survive. Naturally, the radio beam guidance is conducted without the participation of the operator — the person simply can not so true to coordinate the movement of the rocket.
A similar system is not present at the 1st of other standard equipment in the world. Only some Apache helicopters are equipped with a radar system operating in trehmillimetrovom spectrum.
Specialists say that rather just only 3 pieces of weapons "Chrysanthemum-C" to hold large enemy forces on a solid race. Having started the fight, they are able to disrupt the coming of an entire company of tanks. In a matter of seconds will be destroyed about half of the company. And all this will happen earlier than the enemy has time to do a proper opamyatovatsya and act!
"Chrysanthemum-C" is able to keep a good distance from the fire at 400 meters to 6 km. So there is a severe arguments in favor of what exactly she would delay a leader in your class for another couple of years, just not having worthy opponents.
