shoot from zero distance; How “Yasin” stopped the Israeli armor | rahnam report – rahnam

Defense group rahnam News Agency Seyyed Mohammad Taheri: In recent days, very interesting pictures of the conflict between Hamas fighters and the armored units of the Israeli army in the north of the Gaza Strip have been published, which show that the Hamas forces have inflicted significant blows on the tanks and personnel carriers of the Zionist regime using appropriate tactics and equipment.

But what attracts the most attention in these conflicts is the use of the Yassin anti-armor rocket by the fighters of the Qassam battalions, a weapon that is quickly fired from the tunnels by the Palestinian fighters and fired at Israeli tanks and armored vehicles from several meters away. will be

In the first days of the al-Aqsa storm operation, Hamas released a video of the production workshop of a type of two-stage anti-armor rocket called Yassin, which is actually the PG7VR rocket, an RPG-7 anti-armor rocket launcher.

.

To get familiar with this type of anti-armor weapon, we must first know that since the first time, during the First World War, a weapon called a tank entered the field of battle, anti-armor weapons were born to deal with tanks and armored vehicles.

Since then, anti-armor weapons have made significant improvements, but the basis of these weapons’ work is still based on the use of good charges.

Ammunition that uses pit charges has a funnel-shaped liner, usually copper or tungsten metal (varies depending on the name of the ammunition), behind which the explosive is placed. As a result of the explosion of explosives, the heat and pressure resulting from the explosion are concentrated in one point and form the so-called hole jet. With high speed and high temperature, this jet breaks the armor of the tank and penetrates inside the tank, as a result of which, due to the explosion of ammunition and fuel inside the tank, the intended target is destroyed.

But with the emergence of reactive armor, another layer was added to the armor of armored devices, which could protect them against anti-armor projectiles with a hollow charge. As a result, he saved the tank from destruction. At the same time as the level of tank armor protection improved and the invention of new generations of reactive armor, a new generation of anti-armor ammunition needed to be born.

Based on this, two-stage or so-called tandem charge anti-armor rockets were produced. In these rockets, instead of using one pit charge, two pit charges are used consecutively, the first pit charge is responsible for destroying the reactive armor and the second pit charge is responsible for destroying the tank.

Among the two-stage or tandem charge munitions, one of the simplest and at the same time the most accessible is the PG7VR rockets, of which Hamas has produced an example called Yassin.

In fact, this rocket is the result of combining the flight cost of the PG-7 rocket of the RPG7 weapon with the warhead of the PG-29 rockets and is a suitable weapon to deal with tanks and armored vehicles.

All the rockets used in the RPG-7 weapon consist of three main parts; The flight charge that is screwed to the end of the rocket and provides the primary propulsion power needed to move the rocket. This section includes four balance vanes that open immediately after the rocket is fired and cause the rocket to rotate around its own axis, while maintaining the balance of the rocket along the way, it also increases its effectiveness and accuracy.

Different parts of the RPG-7 rocket

The second part is the flight charge, this part provides the necessary power for the rocket to fly. However, the propellant motor is turned on 11 meters after firing, and with the release of the gases resulting from the activity of the propellant motor from the six holes that are located at the connection point of the propellant to the warhead of the rocket, it increases the speed up to about 330 meters per second. The reason is that RPG-7 rockets are most effective up to a distance of 330 meters, and after that, their effectiveness decreases gradually with the decrease in speed.

The warhead is the third part of RPG-7 rockets, this part uses a different structure depending on the type of rocket, but here we will review the types of anti-armor of these rockets.

In RPG-7 anti-armor rockets, as already mentioned, the cartridge mechanism is used. In conventional single-stage projectiles, one hollow charge is used, and in two-stage projectiles, two consecutive hollow charges are used. The front part of the warhead of the PG7VR rockets or the Palestinian example of Yassin, is actually the first stage of these rockets, which destroys the first layer of tank armor or reactive armor, after that there is an interface part that creates a gap between the first stage explosion and The activation of the seasoning is the second step.

The second stage, which has a larger volume and therefore contains a larger amount of explosive material, also causes the main armor to split and destroy the tank by hitting the tank body.

The forces of Ezzeddin Qassam battalions, with a detailed understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the Zionist regime’s armored vehicles, especially the Merkava4 tanks, and realizing that the Israeli forces rely heavily on their armored vehicles in ground combat to reduce human casualties, as well as the limitations of tanks in urban warfare, are the best weapons. have chosen to deal with them.

In addition to this, Hamas fighters, with sufficient knowledge of the capabilities of the Israeli tank protection system known as Trophy, use appropriate techniques such as shooting at the tank from several directions, attaching explosives to the tank to disable the Trophy system, and then shooting at it, as well as targeting Tanks at close range have adopted this system to prevent proper reaction.

.

The combination of RPG-7 and Yassin rockets is an effective weapon to inflict high casualties on the Zionists. Although the RPG-7’s 15 to 30-meter range fire limits its use in closed urban environments, its ability to be carried by a person, its simplicity in use, and its high mobility and portability, along with its low cost, make it a suitable option for Hamas forces. The published images of the conflict between Hamas fighters and Israeli tanks, as well as the casualties inflicted on them in the last few days, are indicative of this.

Training of Hamas forces with Yassin rockets in Rokn al-Shadid exercises

The widespread use of anti-armor rockets by Hamas forces and their high proficiency in using them effectively shows proper training and planning to deal with the armored units of the Israeli army.

Hamas has adopted the strategy of wide use of this type of weapons, realizing that in the ground battle, the defense forces’ main reliance is on anti-armor systems, and if they are used properly, they can cause a lot of damage to the enemy, especially in urban battles. Now, it remains to be seen whether the Zionist army will be able to deal with the anti-armor power of the Hamas forces in the continuation of this battle, or whether it will still have to witness extensive armored losses from a distance of zero.
