Острозубый «Скат». Под флагами трёх государств


Лодки из титана. Суперкавитирующие торпеды и реакторы с жидким металлом. Каким еще оружием мог удивить флот? Публика приготовилась в сотый раз сломать копья в споре о подводных истребителях типа «Лира». Погрузиться на километр с «Комсомольцем» и фантазировать о «Посейдоне», прорывающем мрак глубины на 200 узлах. Внимательно разбираться в том, какое оружие и почему определяют соотношение сил на море, желающих немного. Показательно, что среди тысяч статей на военную тематику, размещенных на topwar.ru, подводным лодкам проекта 670 «Скат» был посвящен всего один материал. Датированный 2012 годом. «Беззубый скат» — худшая серия ПЛ В принятых категориях быстрее/глубже/сильнее «Скат» был настолько плох, что даже …

Огнемёт ЛПО-50 в СССР и за рубежом


Общий вид ЛПО-50. Фото War-time.ru В начале пятидесятых годов советская оборонная промышленность разработала несколько новых образцов огнеметного вооружения для сухопутных войск. Одним из них был легкий пехотный огнемет ЛПО-50. Он поступил на вооружение советской армии, а также поставлялся зарубежным странам и производился по лицензии. Новая конструкция В начале пятидесятых годов в нашей армии сохранялось значительное количество ранцевых струйных огнеметов РОКС-2/3 времен Великой Отечественной войны.

Советская авиация в эпоху цифровой революции: взлёт и падение


В последнее время в нашей стране бытует мнение о том, что истребитель, построенный на базе старых освоенных технологий, будет иметь хорошие шансы в борьбе против высокотехнологичной техники противника. Утверждается, что технологический разрыв между стоящими у нас на вооружении самолётами 4-го поколения и иностранными истребителями 5-го поколения незначителен и непринципиален. Большое внимание уделяется наземным средствам ПВО, а российские ЗРК преподносятся как непреодолимый барьер для самой современной авиации. На вооружение взята доктрина комбинированного применения истребительной авиации и ЗРК, появившаяся в 1960-е годы в СССР. Эта доктрина применялась в противостоянии с США, где, наоборот, авиация рассматривалась как независимая сила для завоевания господства в …

Рим и Карфаген: первое столкновение


И Карфагену, и Риму в IV веке до н. э. посчастливилось остаться в стороне от великих походов Александра Македонского. Взгляд завоевателя упал на Восток, куда и отправились его победоносные армии. Ранняя смерть 32-летнего Александра в июне 323 года до н. э. привела к распаду его государства, осколки которого оказались втянуты в жестокие войны диадохов (полководцев-преемников). И диадохам тоже было мало дела до Карфагена и Рима: они делили и отнимали друг у друга уже завоёванные царства и провинции. Отзвуки далёкой грозы Отголоски тех событий все же были услышаны и на западе. Первым из них стало падение древней метрополии финикийцев – города …
