Russia’s Tactical Missiles Corporation Unveils APR-3ME Grif Air Launched Torpedo
 
JSC Region State Research and Production Enterprise, part of the Tactical Missiles Corporation (TMC), has developed a new APR-3ME Grif airborne anti-submarine missile, which is a modernized version of the APR-3E missile. The new system was unveiled at the MAKS 2017 airshow currently held in Russia.

"The company is showing a new missile at MAKS-2017 in Zhukovsky, near Moscow. This is the APR-3ME (Grif) airborne anti-submarine missile, an upgrade of the APR-3E. The improved capability missile is designed to destroy submarines at depths up to 800 meters moving at a speed of up to 80 km/h. The APR-3ME has the same caliber as its predecessor (350 mm), but the weight and size characteristics were reduced: its length is 3250 mm versus 3685 mm, weight - 470 kg versus 525 kg," the press service’s statement said.

Previously, thanks to its proprietary solid fuel motor designs, the TMC’s company developed a unique APR-1 airborne anti-submarine missile, which initiated further improvement of airborne anti-submarine missiles. So, for instance, the APR-3E missile with a new specially developed turbo-waterjet engine running on composite solid-fuel became an export bestseller. The APR-3E is employed from ASW planes and helicopters and designed to destroy modern submarines, including SSNs, at submerged speeds up to 40 knots (at depths of up to 800 meters) in any water areas of the oceans of the world in sea state up to 6. The APR-3E is distinguished by fast response in target search and detection mode, a high target-missile relative speed after lock-on and, as a result, can kill the target before the latter starts actively counteracting. This area of anti-submarine weapons will continue to evolve.
