        Russia shows Verba manportable missile system [SOFEX18D3]

        http://www.janes.com/article/79960/r...stem-sofex18d3


        The Russian KBP Instrument Design Bureau (Hall 4, Stand A401) is showing its latest-generation 9K333 Verba man-portable surface-to-air missile (SAM) system, which has been designed to engage aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles when they are on approach or receding. KBP claims the new missile outperforms earlier generation systems by 1.5 to 2 times, especially at ranges in excess of 3km.

        The 9M336 missile in the 9P521 launcher has an advanced tri-mode passive homing seeker, which is said to have a counter-countermeasure capability against powerful pyrotechnical decoys 10 times higher. The 72mm diameter missile has a blast fragmentation warhead with impact and proximity fuzes. It can also be fitted with a night sight.

        The prime contractor is quoting a target engagement range of from 500m up to 6,000m and against targets with an altitude from 10m up to 3,500m. The missile is also used with an 1L229V ground-based identification friend or foe interrogator, plus a full range of testing equipment and training aids.

        Targets can be detected by a number of systems, including the tripod-mounted 1L122 lightweight surveillance radar or the 9S932-1 mobile radar system, which is mounted on the tracked Armoured Command and Reconnaissance Vehicle used for a wide range of battlefield missions by the Russian Army.

        These would typically feed information to the 9S933 portable fire control module, which would allocate targets to the 9K333 Verba man-portable SAM system.

                      Nice, more R77's

                      BTW How's Vityaz going ? It's kinda worrysome if it's still unfinished compared to Buk MZ or the Shtil. Im curious if Fakel and prob Altair designers trying to achieve too much things with it.

                        IDK, have heard or seen nothing, probably related to 9M96 reliability problems.

                        Remember Buk-M3 program started in like 1990, so they had a head start.

                            The construction of the new MiG-35 fighters will be based on lean manufacturing principles
                            06/01/2018 13:49:22
                            *** The cost of production should be reduced by 20% of
                            Lukhovitsy (Moscow region). June 1st. Interfax-AVN - The newest MiG-35 fighters will be built in Lukhovitsy in accordance with the principles of lean manufacturing, Ilya Tarasenko, the general director of MIG corporation, told journalists.

                            On Friday, on the territory of the Lukovitsky Aviation Plant (LAZ) them. Voronin (branch of RAC "MiG") opened the first LIN-laboratory for mass training of plant employees in lean manufacturing principles. This way of organizing the work is aimed at satisfying the needs of the customer, while excluding losses in production and involving all the personnel of the company in the optimization process.
                            c
                            "The production of the MiG-35 will begin according to the updated scheme.This is the introduction of Lean Production, IF-AVN, is associated not only with the MiG-35 project, but also with all projects of the corporation, including the new civilian projects Il-114 , which is now in the process of launching, and this will be introduced in the course of repairs and upgrades of aircraft that we carry out at all our enterprises-MiG-31, MiG-29, "Tarasenko said, opening the LIN laboratory.

                            According to him, as a result, the cost of MIG products should be reduced, at least, by 20%. "For us, the main thing is to shorten the terms, which, of course, leads to a reduction in the cost of manufactured products, as well as an improvement in the quality of products." Another important task is to encourage people to produce ideas and suggestions for optimizing and improving our products. activity ", - said the general director of RAC" MIG ".

                            He noted that similar "Process Factories" will be launched in other branches of the corporation, including the Nizhny Novgorod enterprise "Sokol", and then in the design bureau, which will develop a methodology for creating and developing new products of the brand "MiG".

                            "Taking into account the connection of all the additional" Factory of processes "that will be on all sites, I think that in two or three years we will train all employees, including the entire management team," I.Tarasenko said.

                                      Lean manufacturing refers more so to modern builds with just-in-time (jit) delivery of mostly assembled sectional parts from external contractors. The contractors are responsible for assembling a competent team of subcontractors to assemble their contracted sections. The main assembly area can be more flexibly located and relocated in short time. The subcontract work itself is dispersed. Its much less vulnerable to hijacking, because multiple competitive vendors supply each lower rung in the food chain. Welcome to Lockmart 1991.

                                        I doubt MIG approach to building fighters is same as LM. The MIG factories are in low cost towns.

                                        Lockheed Martin has been using Six Sigma and Lean since the late 90s. Like many other companies the early use of the methodologies took place in small pockets around the company without a centralized effort. Then in 1999 Lockheed Martin started the LM21 initiative
                                        if you are using multiple contractors to produce same product at cheapest price (open bidding gives incentive to enter same product line) than you are basically wasting critical skill labor on duplicate work supplying to non productive sector . this give outside competitors who's engineering skills are more focused to build better products.

                                        Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said in an interview published on Saturday that U.S. companies which rely on special types of German steel would have to raise prices and therefore this would put pressure on the U.S. government to exempt some metals from the 25 percent tariffs.

                                          Actually the subcontractors that build the tiniest parts have no clue what their contribution to the project does. They are just making parts to match design specs. The key is the tight control of the specs. You're actually improving your fundamental manufacturing base with this strategy, not wasting it.
