National Interest: The US has nothing to oppose the Russian C-400

98
Russian anti-missile systems C-400 "Triumph" change the rules of the game in the Middle East, writes The National Interest.

The reason is that this complex can launch interceptor missiles of various types, notes the author of the article, Stephen Brayen. We are talking about four types of missiles: 40Н6Е (range - 400 km), 48Н6 (250 km), 9М96Е2 (120 km) and 9М96Е (40 km). American Patriot systems, for example, can launch only one anti-aircraft missile at a distance of 96 kilometers, the author compares.



He calls the 9М96Е2 rocket one of the main advantages of the Russian systems. It develops speeds up to 15 M (about five thousand meters per second) and can shoot down targets flying very low above the surface of the Earth (about five meters).

National Interest: The US has nothing to oppose the Russian C-400


Brayen refers to Dr. Carlo Kopp, an aerospace research expert, who noted that C-400 can be equipped with detection and capture radars designed to destroy such modern stealth aircraft as the F-22 and F-35.

The development of stealth technologies is associated with low visibility for the frequency range X, which are most often used for both military and civilian purposes. Over time, the entire missile defense system of the United States and its allies, based primarily on the X-band, will become obsolete, because Russia and China are actively developing invisibility technologies for their missiles and aircraft.
- emphasizes Brayen.

In turn, the advantage of long-range missiles C-400 is their ability to hit targets located outside the air defense zone, including Boeing E-3 Sentry long-range radar detection aircraft.

According to Bayen, the decision of Saudi Arabia - the "loyal US satellite" - to acquire Russian systems was a serious blow to Washington and its European allies.

Before this, a deal for 2,5 billion dollars about the purchase of C-400 with Moscow was concluded by Turkey. Another country that may acquire Russian air defense system will be Egypt. At the same time, many countries, including Greece, China and India, already have C-300 systems, RIA News.

        Where did Departments run at 41? Can I have a detailed ..? Routes? In some places, the Red Army went on the offensive and went beyond the border of the USSR, in some places the border did not move at all until the 44th year. Are you in the department where you ran from the attack aircraft?
        And the Wehrmacht suffered terrible losses ... it was not in vain that the "Eastern Front" became a household word after a couple of months of fighting.

      One of the main advantages of Russian systems, he calls the 9M96E2 rocket. She has a speed of up to 15 M (about five thousand meters per second)

      complete nonsense, unfortunately. Not a single missile of the S-400, and even more so 9M96E2, flies with such speed. If it flies at least 1500 m / s - it will be just a holiday. And so they write everywhere: average speed = 1000 m / s. hi

      The most effective weapon is one whose presence simply discourages contact with it. So, the S-400 in a peculiar way showed what they are capable of. In addition, we don’t know all the details of how often they took “sworn friends” to accompany them and thus completed their task.

        And 350 unless to replace 300

        Vityaz S-350 is a new generation medium-range Russian anti-aircraft missile system undergoing state tests. It is planned that Vityaz will replace the S-300PS and Buk-M1-2. At the end of 2016, the Almaz-Antey concern announced that it had begun development of a new medium-range air defense system, which “will replace the Buk and S-350 Vityaz air defense systems.”

          According to Buk, the zhurnalyugi made a mistake, this is a complex of military air defense and S-350 it will not replace, since it is a complex of object air defense. It is possible that on a common base with the S-350 make and military complex ....

        The S-300 is no longer being produced, and the S-350 is being replaced. Now it is a medium-range air defense system, but with a large ammunition. Development starts from a joint Russian-Korean air defense system. hi

      He also noted that if there is open talk about the S-500, then on the approach could be -600 and -700, and N! (Factorial)! Science does not stand still, and technology runs forward!

    An author from NI begins to compare systems built on different ideologies. . We are trying to deploy several missiles at once on our systems. Our opponent is one, less often two. Here is just an interesting detail. Everyone is talking about missiles such as 40N6E and 9M96E2 / 9M96E. Questions about backfill.
    1. Whether the 40N6 missile has been adopted, that this author writes so confidently about it. as far as I remember, in the spring, Shoigu spoke of her as completing the test, but not standing in service
    2. Someone other than at the exhibitions saw the S-400 system with containers from 9M96 series missiles? I'm afraid not. In none of the stories that regularly flash on TV screens did I observe launchers with such containers
    3. And then, what makes the S-400 fundamentally different from the S-300, if these types of missiles are not found in the troops? Maybe nothing, and the S-400 system is just the same S-300 with a slightly increased range and possibly other radars?

    I would say they do not beg, but simply bred the average man. There, democracy, even if these same inhabitants are devouring.

    You're right. Another horror story for the western man in the street. “Give me the money, otherwise the Russians have it, but we don’t.” The lag in the bombers had already passed, when billions were knocked out by the US lawmakers to deploy a fleet of strategic bombers, motivating that the USSR had a lot of them (here we outwitted ourselves), we can recall the missile lag, when the lag was motivated by showing missiles on Krasnaya areas of which some did not go into series at all, and some were mock-ups

      But what then essentially differs the S-400 from the S-300, if these types of missiles are not found in the troops? Maybe nothing, and the S-400 system is just the same S-300 with a slightly increased range and possibly other radars?

      So the S-400 is the S-300PM3. What is the difference? Highly integrated. Well, for example, you can integrate which rubella. In S-300 it is possible to drown itself IMHO

      In the spring, they stated that the long-range missile on the S-400 was adopted (without indicating which numbering), the rocket on the S-350 and Polyment - Redoubt would be ready in the fall (i.e. it is currently being tested). hi

    Well. And local Jews, sorry, the Israelis chant in chorus that the S-400 bullshit, because nothing has been shot down yet. And whom to believe? Israxpertam or Braien and Kopp? Perhaps I will believe our anti-aircraft gunners. These tough guys themselves do not fly and do not give others.
