    antitank missile system phalanx-ne Aviation antitank missile system" Falanga-PV "designed to engage enemy armored vehicles with semi-automatic and manual methods of control under direct optical visibility.

    Created in KB Precision Engineering (chief designer AE Nudelman) based on complex "Phalanx-M" . Adopted in 1969, since 1973 in a series of gunships went Mi-24D with four ATGM 9M17P. Rocket 9M17P also became the main armament for other types of helicopters, which had previously been set Complex "Phalanx-M." On launchers Mi-4AB and Mi-8TV accommodated up to four missiles simultaneously.

    Manufactured

    Kovrov Mechanical Plant.

    complex Exported and still is in the armies of Afghanistan, Bulgaria, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Egypt, Hungary, Libya, Poland, Yemen, Syria, Vietnam, Iraq, etc.

    the west range was designated AT-2C "Swatter-C" .

    Composition

    antitank missile system phalanx-ne Launch 9M17P (see diagram) is based on the normal aerodynamic scheme and, in general, similar to rocket 9M17M complex" Phalanx-M. " The main difference lies in the use of new radio command system semi-automatic control, conjugated with the equipment "Raduga-F" on a helicopter carrier. Missile guidance to the target takes place using three points. Controls - the aerodynamic control surfaces.

    Currently, the developer is offering a deep modernization of the armor penetration to increase to a level ensuring defeat modern tanks, including those fitted with reactive armor and a substantial expansion of the range of combat employment through the use of various types of warheads (Frag, volumetric-detonating and other combat parts).

    New options were presented at the MAKS-99 in Zhukovsky in August 1999. Modified versions of the missile can be used with existing launchers in service: self-propelled launcher 9P137 and helicopters MI-24 - a semi-automatic or manual modes guidance when starting with PU 9P124 - only in manual mode.

    Upgraded versions

    9M17P retained all combat and operational characteristics of the precursor and differ from him types of warheads:

    9M17P modes. 1 equipped with a new warhead with increased efeektivnostyu for guaranteed penetration through thick armor protection to 400mm (at an angle of 60 degrees from the normal). New warhead equivalent cumulative warhead weighing 4.1kg.

    9M17P modes. 2 is equipped with an advanced warhead weighing 7.5kg with the possibility of guaranteed defeat armor thicker than 400mm (at an angle of 60 degrees from the normal).
