Russian military tested a single integrated air defense system
According to him, “for several hours, fighter-interceptors, anti-aircraft missile systems, radar stations and early warning aircraft (AWACS) in the Caucasus, in the Crimea and Central Russia reflected a conditional massive air raid, drones and enemy cruise missiles.
At the same time, “at the National Center of Defense and the High Command of the Aerospace Force not only received real-time information about everything happening in the air and on the ground, but also managed an air battle that took place on an area of several thousand kilometers,” interlocutor.
It is noted that "in addition to the VKS, the C-300B and Buk battalion divisions, which are part of the Ground Forces and are not formally subordinate to the command of the Russian Aerospace Forces", also took part in repelling the "enemy" attack.
The chief editor of the branch magazine Arsenal of the Fatherland, Viktor Murakhovsky: "In the Armed Forces of Russia for the fighter aviation, air defense equipment, units and subunits of the radio-technical forces were developed and adopted for supply automated control systems (ACS). The proven single integrated system is, so to speak, a “mega-ACS” that combines all these systems into a single complex. Until recently, the full functioning of the EIS was hindered by the problem of the lack of a single data exchange format and interface between automated control systems. But after the creation of the National Defense Management Center, all departmental bureaucratic partitions were overcome. ”
According to him, in VKS "there is not only a“ shield ”of the IIS Air Defense, but now a“ sword ”is being created - a single integrated system for front-line, assault and bomber aviation, which directly strikes the enemy.”
“The front-line bombers are already connected to the new system, and later helicopters of army aviation and, possibly, attack aircraft will join,” said Murakhovsky.
