Russia hitting rebels/ISIS from the Caspian sea

Russian warships fired missiles into Syria from the Caspian Sea for the first time. The Russian defence minister, Sergei Shoigu, said four warships launched 26 rockets at Islamic State targets. The missiles would have passed over Iran and Iraq to reach their targets, covering what Shoigu described as a distance of almost 900 miles (1, 440 kilometres).

how do those rockets work. zinajuaje where to land and blow up shit!

I have no idea. I was watching Al-jazeera this morning and I learnt that these things are precise to the centimeter o_O

That’s why they are called smart missiles buda. They have on-board computers and GPS navigation systems.
But with that range, they can easily hit Goma in the DRC from the Kenyan coast .


then they are not good. am imagining if the inbuilt navi system fails on their way to syria, zianguke hapo kwa offisi ya mzee @khamenei, what would happen

The hallmark of a cruise missile is its incredible accuracy. A common statement made about the cruise missile is, “It can fly 1,000 miles and hit a target the size of a single-car garage.” Cruise missiles are also very effective at evading detection by the enemy because they fly very low to the ground (out of the view of most radar systems).

Four different systems help guide a cruise missile to its target:

[li]IGS - Inertial Guidance System[/li][li]Tercom - Terrain Contour Matching[/li][li]GPS - Global Positioning System[/li][li]DSMAC - Digital Scene Matching Area Correlation[/li][/ul]
The IGS is a standard acceleration-based system that can roughly keep track of where the missile is located based on the accelerations it detects in the missile’s motion (click here for a good introduction). Tercom uses an on-board 3-D database of the terrain the missile will be flying over. The Tercom system “sees” the terrain it is flying over using its radar system and matches this to the 3-D map stored in memory. The Tercom system is responsible for a cruise missile’s ability to “hug the ground” during flight. The GPS system uses the military’s network of GPS satellites and an onboard GPS receiver to detect its position with very high accuracy.

Once it is close to the target, the missile switches to a “terminal guidance system” to choose the point of impact. The point of impact could be pre-programmed by the GPS or Tercom system. The DSMAC system uses a camera and an image correlator to find the target, and is especially useful if the target is moving. A cruise missile can also be equipped with thermal imaging or illumination sensors (as used in smart bombs)


Google how Israels Iron dome works…it can intercept multiple rockets at a go

…The terrain-hugging Kalibr-NK cruise missiles, known by Nato by the codename Sizzler, fly at an altitude of 50 metres and are accurate to within three metres…

they would explode.

Inertial navigation and GPS for the long journey, infrared and laser rangefinding for the closing stages

Shit just got real. Everybody wants to test their weapons on ISIS

Face palm…

Very dangerous. If we had them they’d follow al-shabab to their holes and blow to them up.


from the safety of our barracks

Russia is also trying to show their firepower

He he, you must have foreseen this.
The US is claiming four Russian missiles didn’t reach their targets in Syria but crash landed in Iran.
However, the Russians are denying this.
