    An easy-to-read combination from pin dos, in the last companies in Iraq and Syria the bearded had nothing to hide from the aircraft, they hid for some time at the pin dos dos bases, but they were burned there. Openly supplying bearded stingers and patriots, pin-dos, despite their greyhound, are still embarrassed. So we decided to bring to this topic the most untied people - Poland and the ruin, buy old complexes in Jordan, re-equip them under the guidance of Pin-dos designers, and there you’ll not have time to look around, when they suddenly get lost on a march somewhere in Libya, or pop up Kurds on the Turkish border ....
    Pentagoners aren’t interested ...
    Finding themselves in a war game, think they will not come?

        With the skillful use of the Osa air defense system, I think Romanenko is a terrible weapon, it will be veiled supplies to the bearded children of the owners of the Fed and the Zionists (fascists).

      That is yes. But it must be admitted that Osa helicopters are a serious threat. It was not for nothing that our people bought them at one time in Eastern Europe in order to find the best methods of anti-de-activation. Very serious weapon.

    Intersely, and in any way to upgrade them?
    Well, from the Delitanian point of view, there is an outdated missile system and guidance system, if this is removed and a new one is installed, then the idea will work further ...

      ... modernized. The result was a completely different machine Osa-AKM:

      The main task of modernization is to increase its reliability and noise immunity by updating the outdated elemental base, as a result of which the life cycle of the complex is extended for another 10-12 years. Due to overhaul with modernization, specialists of the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant achieved a number of advantages relative to the previous complex, including an increase in the range of targets and their ultimate characteristics, speed, height. In addition to high-speed targets, the complex can detect and hit small non-speed targets such as UAVs, which is currently important. Due to the automation of the process, the reaction time is reduced and the combat crew per person is reduced. The modernized Osa-AKM1 attracted the attention of both Russian and foreign military specialists. And this interest is logical and justified - after the repair and modernization of the OTA-OSM air defense missile system, the Armed Forces receive an automated anti-aircraft missile system, with military equipment located on one chassis, which allows for effective combat against precision weapons, airplanes, helicopters and unmanned aircraft.

        the nomenclature has been increased, it’s good, but so that it matches the best newest models, and does not become a little better than the old one, but it’s the same.

    I just can’t understand how, after the sale of C 400 Turkey, this complex will remain unreassembled by Americanos in details.

      And it will be disassembled, but money is more expensive for the oligarchy of the Russian Federation.
