9P149M combat vehicle

The 9P149M combat vehicle combat vehicle is intended to destroy moving and stationary air and ground targets, short-term 9M120 type missile storage, transportation, launch, and guidance to the target. It is designed as a self-propelled launcher outfitted with equipment for target detection, missile guidance, communications, and power supply.

The 9P149 combat vehicle is based on a MTLB chassis. The 9P149 crew is 2 persons. The vehicle is of a cross-country type and can be operated under effects of mass destruction weapons. The missile load carried with the 9P149M CV and arranged in an automated stowage is composed of a mixture of up to 10 to 12 missiles: 9M120 (9M120-1) and 9M120F (9M120-1F). Loading the retractable launcher with a missile of a particular type from the automated stowage is automatic. Loading missiles to the stowage is manual. The retractable launcher carries a single container with a missile.

The 9P149M CV is equipped with a TV/TI control device and a radio command datalink.

The operational letter-coded frequency for the radio command datalink equipment is set by a switch before loading. The DUST (above LOS) flight mode parameters are set mechanically before launch using a control panel.

9M120-1 missile  
КБМ Коломна 9П149М "Штурм-СМ" The missile control system (C&G section) includes a radio receiver, a photodetector, and a responder, thus providing for radio command datalink guidance or semiautomatic laser beam riding.
9M120-1F missile  
КБМ Коломна 9П149М "Штурм-СМ" The operational letter-coded frequency of the radio command datalink is set mechanically before loading,, the radio command datalink code is sent to the C&G section equipment by applying voltage to appropriate contacts of the launcher. Switching over to the laser beam riding mode and its coded letter are set by applying voltage to appropriate contacts of the launcher.

When in service, 9M120-1 missiles do not require checks by test equipment.

9V868М mobile test station (MTS)

The MTS is used to check 9P149M and 9P149 combat vehicles for function and identify failures down to a replaceable unit that can be changed without disconnecting communication cables and dismantling the equipment from the item under test, it is also used to check group SPTA kit units and measure control equipment parameters during adjustment and tuning the equipment after replacement of a faulty unit.

The 9V868М is derived from a standard 9V868 MTS by adding the 9V5002 test equipment intended for checks of the 9С4001 surveillance and targeting station (STS).

The 9V868М MTS includes:

- K131 van body based on a ZIL-131N truck;
- power generation unit;
- rectifying unit;
- filter for the rectifying unit;
- 9V546 device for drive checks;
- 9V549 test equipment;
- 9V565 test equipment;
- 9V5002 test equipment;
- 9V547.00.000 device for calculator checks;
- 9M114 9F716 missile simulator;
- 9V732 instrumentation equipment;
- standard instruments: frequency meter, oscilloscope, voltmeter, megger, multi-purpose tester;
- set of service documentsк.

The 9V868М test equipment is outfitted with a power generation unit, 16 kV·A,  380 V  (three 50-Hz phases) used for providing autonomous power to both MTS equipment, and item under test with power take-off from chassis motor shaft. However, power to the MTS can be supplied  from an external mains of 380VAC±10 %, (50±1) Hz frequency.

9V868М MTS specifications

Check method of CV characteristics and equipment units from group SPTA kit: parametric, with tolerances.

Time taken for check of one CV without cable connection/disconnection time: 2 hours.

Time to deploy MTS from travelling to operational position: 2 hours.

Time to close down MTS from operational to travelling position: 15 minutes.

Time of continuous MTS operation: 8 hours.

MTS crew: 3 persons.

MTS consumption of power of three-phase 380VAC±10 %, (50±1) Hz mains: 16 kV•A, max.

Time required for test equipment to get fully operational after power supply: 30 minutes.

Power generation set specifications:

           rated voltage: 380±19 V.

           rated power: 16 kV•A.

           rated frequency: 50±1 Hz

           number of phases: 3.

Assigned operation life: 2000/1000 hours/cycles.

CV parameters are checked by means of the test equipment housed inside the MTS. Before connecting test cables between MTS and CV, the test equipment runs a self-test. If the self-test outcome is positive, the test cables are attached to test connectors of the CV control equipment, then individual CV subsystems are subjected to checks. The checks include measurements of the corresponding subsystem parameters.

The test equipment checks parameters of a 9S4001 STS in an automated manner, those of other subsystems are checked in a manual mode.
