The article analyzes the known design solutions used to equip unguided aircraft missiles and unguided rockets with control systems in order to improve their accuracy. Possible ways of manning jet ammunition for medium-caliber MLRS with a control system are considered and a constructive solution for its improvement is proposed.
The continuation of the escalation of the armed conflict in the east of Ukraine requires the leadership of our state and the Armed Forces of Ukraine to constantly determine further priority areas for increasing the combat capability of military units (subdivisions) of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Medium-caliber multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) have repeatedly proved their effectiveness in the conduct of hostilities in various armed conflicts around the world and continue to be one of the main weapons used in the JFO zone. In a hybrid war, subunits armed with medium-caliber MLRS, when targets located in populated areas are hit, cannot compensate for the lack of firing accuracy by increasing the amount of ammunition spent. Effective execution of fire missions under these conditions can be achieved by significantly increasing the accuracy of medium-caliber MLRS ammunition.
Analysis of the positive experience of the militarily leading countries of the world in the creation of high-precision ammunition (HPA) can be used in the further development of HPA for medium-caliber MLRS. The use of HPA in conjunction with modernized medium-caliber MLRS will ensure the minimum preparation time for firing and significantly reduce the time they spend in a firing position, which means they will increase their survivability and make the enemy's counter-battery fight less effective.
