MiG-31BM vs. ATACMS and the “Global Rapid Impact” tools: is the game worth the candle? The importance of air defense aviation

42



A huge amount of controversy and reflection regarding the development and future application in practice of the American concept of “Fast Global Impact” can be found on the Russian expanses of the global network and on Russian-language foreign military analytical resources. It is not a secret that the numerous tactical moments of the BSU implementation against the main military-industrial objects of Russia and the People’s Republic of China are already regularly refined to perfection through special computerized training terminals linked into a single tactical network, as well as directly at the training center. software loaded into tactical fighters sms, strategic bomber-rocket-carrying bombers, multipurpose and strategic nuclear submarines cruisers, as well as surface warfare ships of URO (EM class "Arleigh Burke" and RR "Ticonderoga").

In inveterate patriotic circles, it is customary to assert that a large number of C-400 Triumph C-300 anti-aircraft missile regiments (GRP) as well as C-4B300 C-1В300 airplanes used in the Air Defense Forces will reduce the likelihood breakthrough "of our aerospace almost to zero. The emphasis is also placed on the already-in-service VKS and ST C-2PS / PMXNUMX and C-XNUMXВ, which retained decent antimissile capabilities in the 21st century. This is partly true, because in the key air routes and in the areas of the main interdiction and access restriction areas and the AXNUMX / AD maneuver (Kaliningrad, St. Petersburg, Moscow and Minsk), the density of deployed anti-aircraft missile regiments and brigades reaches maximum values ​​(separation of divisions on the ground minimum).

For example, the C-300PS / PM1 and C-400 2 air defense divisions, which are responsible for covering the aerospace sector of the A2 / AD zone of the Leningrad Region, are deployed in nearby settlements of Gostilitsy (500-CGR , 4 C-300PM1 complex), Zelenogorsk (1488 fPs, several ZRDN C-400), Vaganovo (1489 fPV, 2 of C-300PS division) and Ulyanovka (1490-FPV, 4 ZNPX, ZNPX). All these villages, towns and cities are located at a distance of no more than 300 - 50 km from each other, which ideally fits into the range characteristics of the low-altitude targets intercepted using the "Three Hundreds" and "Four Hundreds" targets (75 - 30 km depending on the height of the target): everything is done taking into account the radio horizon and the technical capabilities of the 38H30Е / 6Н92Е radar. In simpler language: the SPR data overlaps all low-altitude sites over the Gulf of Finland, Leningrad and the region, and does not allow cruise missiles such as JASSM-ER or Tomahawk or NSM to “break through” without hindrance. At the same time, some areas at the same time overlap not one or two, but immediately three anti-aircraft missile regiments. Almost every S-6 / 300 SFD has additional self-propelled short-range anti-aircraft defense systems (Tor-M400, Armor-С2) to protect the 1-2-kilometer “dead zone” from high-precision elements that managed to break through weapons the adversary.

At the same time, the western air direction is simply an enormous spatial sector and is not built on the Kaliningrad and Leningrad zones alone “A2 / AD”. Consequently, there are other, much less protected areas of our sky in areas where there are no vital military facilities, as well as the energy and industrial centers of the state. Here, the saturation of anti-aircraft defense means is practically reduced to a minimum, and therefore there is a large number of low-altitude airspace sections that are not viewed by ground-based radar. Thus, a significantly weakened lower airspace sector is observed over the southern part of the Leningrad Region and the northern part of the Pskov Region (in the area of ​​the Klinki and Belaya Gorka settlements). The 1544 th FRA, which is also part of the 2 th division of the air defense system of the 6 th army of the VKS, located in the village of Vladimir camp (Pskov region) is more responsible for this direction. Despite the regiment's available anti-aircraft missile divisions Buk-М1 and С-300В, the radio horizon in 25 - 30 km does not allow to “view” and “serve” the low-altitude section over the northern part of the region, the range to which reaches 45 and more kilometers The C-100 anti-aircraft missile regiments located in Gostilitsy and Ulyanovka, which are located in 143 - 300 km, are not capable of this.

While there is a significant air “gap” in the above section, only 100 kilometers to the west are the territory of the nearest bridgehead of the combined NATO forces in the Baltic States - Estonia, whose airspace can be used to launch WTO subsonic, supersonic and hypersonic elements, leaving our ZRDN minimum time for the transfer to the area of ​​the estimated trajectory of enemy EIA. Obviously, using RC-135W / V “Rivet Joint” airborne reconnaissance aircraft equipped with direction finding and analysis of the frequency parameters of 55000 AEELS radar sources (in the case of the worst scenario of conflict development in the European theater), the NATO command and control unit can clearly “feel” the best places successful massive "breakthrough" of the western air borders of Russia, and to nullify such a blow, to put it mildly, will not be easy. Given that the low-profile AGM-158B tactical long-range missiles are capable of reaching the Volga region and Nizhny Novgorod, the consequences of such an MIA can be extremely painful. It’s good if in the depths of the European part of Russia there is enough air defense and electronic warfare equipment to gradually intercept all these missiles, as well as to disable their GPS navigation modules and the correlation subsystems TERCOM (the latter’s operating principle is vulnerable to electronic warfare, as it involves the use of a radio altimeter) ... And if their number or concentration along the flight paths of the Tomahawks and JASSM-ER is insufficient? Operational and strategic situation can prepare a lot of unpleasant surprises.

There are only two ways to "solve" such an unpleasant situation:

- an early introduction to the unit of fire anti-aircraft missile systems S-400 «Triumph" air defense missiles long range 9M96D with active radar homing (will provide an opportunity to hit air targets beyond the radio horizon, but only for target designation from third-party radars, including other terrestrial radars XRDN planes and tactical fighters), as well as the acceleration of the adoption rate of the SV and VKS complexes with an extra-large range of C-300B4, equipped with the latest missiles with ARG H 9М82МВ, capable of targeting to hit both remote flying targets on 150 - 200 km and near-space targets (it is possible that the implementation of the above described qualities will require that the 9М96Д and 9М82M interceptor missiles be supplied with chrommets and not received by the United States. American missiles RIM-174 ERAM / SM-6);

- active use aviation Air defense, in particular, of the upgraded MiG-31BM long-range interceptors, which are capable of detecting targets with an effective reflective surface of 0,05 m2 at a distance of 90 to 110 km and begin intercepting with R-33S / 37 air-to-air missiles with using our own on-board radar system Zaslon-AM, or according to external target designation from more powerful airborne radars Shmel-M of the A-50U radar monitoring aircraft; for the Foxhounds, which are on combat duty at an altitude of 14000-17000 m, the phenomenon of limited radio horizon is absolutely alien (the radio horizon for low-altitude cruise missiles reaches 560 km and covers the instrumental range of Zaslon-AM radar).


Meanwhile, the capabilities of MiG-31B / BM for the destruction of low-flying enemy cruise missiles of various classes (including ultra-subtle) have long been a proven advantage of Foxhound in numerous field tests close to the actual combat situation in the air section of the theater of operations. The groundwork in this area of ​​modernization of the 2,8-flywheel interceptor is almost exhausted. A more interesting, non-resounding moment is the ability of the BM to destroy high-speed ballistic objects (missiles, as well as their combat equipment) in different parts of the flight trajectory. The presence of such abilities is still in the first modernized modification of Foxhound with the index “Item 05” (MiG-31М “Foxhound-B / Improved Foxhound”) reports the western information and analytical reference resource toad-design.com, dedicated to jet planes of the MiG family ". So, in the publication “Zaslon Radar”, it was stated that the Zaslon-M radar installed under the increased X-ray radome in 1,4 m radar combined with the P-37 air combat missiles intercepted MGM-31C “Pershing-2” missiles, having a range of 1800 km.

Note that this ability is indicated for the first advanced version of the “Barrier” (“Barrier-M”), managed by the outdated on-board computer “Argon-15А” with a frequency of about 500 thousand op / s and the amount of RAM / ROM 4 and 64 KB, respectively . This was quite enough for accurate and verified target designation on the Pershing-2 warhead, slowing down to 3,5-4,5М on the descending branch of the trajectory (at the height of 25 - 30 km). On the latest MiG-31BM installed no less sophisticated radar "Barrier-AM". Although it loses to “Barrier-M” in the number of accompanied targets in 2, its energy capabilities exceed those of the first version by 60% (for the target with 1 and 2 EPR - 246 and 154 km, respectively). Zaslonon-AM is controlled by a more modern and hundreds of times more high-performance BCG “Baguette-55” with a frequency of about 300 MHz (about 160 million of so-called “butterflies”).


Radar "Barrier-AM"


This is enough to “capture” and destroy even more high-speed hypersonic targets with flight speed in 1770 m / s (6M): the list will include the advanced Lokhidovka reconnaissance-strike aircraft SR-72 with its hypersonic combat “equipment”, and aircraft built on the basis of a prototype of the 5,5-winged cruise missile X-51 "Waverider", and, of course, all existing and future versions of the operational-tactical ballistic missile MGM-164B ATACMS Block IIA. The combat qualities of the MiG-31BM interceptor are still at the highest level. The enemy’s short-range and medium-range ballistic missiles can be engaged at any time at the most difficult section of the theater, where all the target channels of Bukov, Triumphs and Anteyev “will be driven” by enemy cruise and anti-radar missiles, as well as aerodynamic targets; here is the main role for the long-range and high-altitude interceptors of the MiG-31BM.

All that has been described above is directly related exclusively to low-maneuverable hypersonic cruise and ballistic missiles, which are not difficult to intercept for the P-33C and P-37 missiles, and you should not forget that new models of hypersonic weapons, including compact warheads OTBR / MRBD (also planned for use in the “Fast Global Impact”) will have a fully-fledged gas-dynamic control system on the terminal portion of the trajectory, as well as embedded electronic warfare systems built data on the promising even more miniature element base. To combat such goals, without any reflection on expediency, it will be necessary to develop an interceptor missile of a completely different “grade” than the P-37. A new anti-missile should get a more robust body that can withstand "jerk" maneuvers with 60 overload - 80 units, an annular module from several "belts" of pulsed gas-dynamic engines for transverse control during the implementation of kinetic destruction of enemy maneuvering BR, as well as active radar homing on the base AFAR for better noise immunity from PCB missile defense, used by the enemy’s high-precision weapons.

It is possible that exactly these moments of the general director of the Research Institute of Nuclear Research, Yu. Bely, meant when he focused on the continuing modernization potential of the MiG-31BM in the January interview for TASS. It is noteworthy that an advanced interceptor missile could be unified with such machines as the MiG-35, Su-35C and Su-57 (T-50), also with radars and optical-electronic sight devices capable of tracking hypersonic objects and providing coordinates to the means their defeats. The treacherous aerospace theater of military operations of the new century, stuffed with “smart” weapons, makes a little significant hint that the perfection of ground-based missile defense systems alone is barely enough.

    S-300PS / PM1 and C-400 air defense missile regiments of the 2 Air Defense Division, which are responsible for covering the aerospace sector of the A2 / AD zone of the Leningrad Region

    those. it turns out that Peter is covering 10 divisions of C-300 (120 PU) and 2 battalions of C-400 (16 PU), this is 544 SAM / salvo

      If nothing has changed, then more. In addition, in my time the number of PUs was maximum. Only a quarter were workers — the rest were in storage.
      And there were more divisions themselves.

      It is necessary to consider not SAM or PU. It is necessary to consider the channel. One C-300 on-load tap-changer is 6 channels, with C-400 the channel increased to 8, then to 10 (depending on which version). There is one on-load tap-changer in the division. This means that about 80 goals per cycle can be triggered at the same time. As the interception channels are released, they can take on new goals. The coverage area of ​​one C-300 Tomahawk flies in about 5-6 minutes, so the battle will last exactly these 5-6 minutes. It’s hard to say how long each division will be able to intercept Tomahawks - you need to know how long it takes to complete a work cycle, from detection to defeat (discovered, captured, launch of missiles, flight of missiles, detonation of warheads of missiles). If two minutes, then the C-300 division during the battle could ideally bring down 18-20 missiles. And the whole group, respectively (20x10 = 200) + (25x2) = 250 goals. Very rude of course. PZONNIKI may stammer me.

        About the channel.
        The question of the channeling of the division itself is not such an important quantity (in the sense of finding targets). Because firing control is carried out from the regiment control, and there are much more targets followed + the situation is obtained from other means of detection.
        In this version, the division locator only carries out an additional search for the target (rough aiming is set from the regiment CP). And purely theoretically, a person is needed there to only launch a rocket.

          Additional search and then highlight. Illumination until the moment of defeat. So far, six targets are followed by a seventh shelling fails. The guidance system is semi-active after all. SAM is guided while the on-load tap-changer is shining the target.

        here the author of the article draws a modest conclusion that
        makes a hint that the perfection of ground-based missile defense systems alone is barely enough.

        And this is with so many targets destroyed, which, as if on command, will rush to a suicide attack on an air defense system. Unfortunately, in real combat, this does not work out. The enemy will never use rockets, let alone manned aircraft, for nothing. Back in 1941 during the defense of Moscow, it became clear that without fighter aircraft, the air battle for Moscow could not be won. After that, the 6th Fighter Corps was first transferred to operational subordination, and then the full-fledged formations of the Air Defense Forces capable of acting in concert with both ground and air weapons were formed.
        In modern conditions, it is necessary not only to hint that ground means alone may not be enough. Almost all air defense experts are well aware that it is impossible to create a stable system without fighter aircraft MiG-31 air defense. If the air defense system will conduct independent actions without the support of fighter aircraft and electronic warfare units combined into a single information field of the ASU VKO, then even under normal conditions, taking into account the powerful fire and electronic countermeasures, the average life of an anti-aircraft missile battalion is 15-20 minutes. Moreover, during this time the only goals that he will be able to hit are false, which are usually used to provoke combat work.

    The question that the author of the article raised is more than complicated and trying to assess the possibility of solving it only on the basis of available data on the quantity and deployment of air defense systems and statements by individual managers of individual enterprises is more than difficult. Yes, MIG31 at one time showed that he can to some extent fight low-flying Axes, but this possibility was tested in the process of intercepting SINGLE cruise missiles imitating Axes and, moreover, was tested in the middle of the 80 of the last century. The capabilities of MIG31 with massive attacks of low-flying HEVs were not tested then. The ability of MIG 31 to exchange RLI with other MIG31 in the group and thereby create the so-called MIG 20 was widely advertised at that time. flying wounded radar field. Again, in theory, it looks good, but in real life it will not be known. After all, the constantly radiating letak is a good target for minke whales. Again, the Radar Barrier was created quite a long time ago and how it will cope with its tasks now and in the coming XNUMX years is unknown.
    About the shells. The thing is certainly powerful then when you need to ensure the reflection of the IOS from one direction. But with a massive "star" plaque ie from all directions, the effectiveness of the Shell drops sharply. his head is massive and it will be difficult to turn it in wounded directions with the desired speed.
    Famous С300 / 400 / 500 also has a lot of restrictions and it is not good to consider them a panacea for all ills. Dizziness from own enthusiasm can occur. And to cover with them the whole territory of the country no wallet is enough. But Moscow and Peter are not all Russia.
    And finally. There is a proposal to get rid of the urge to show their awareness and work for the CIA. Hai they plow themselves and find out where and what is in Russia and how much.

    If the frequency of one is measured in "op / s", then why does the second have it measured in MHz ("butterflies")?
    If the amount of RAM / ROM is given for one modification, then it is logical to give the same indicators for the second. so that we are enthusiastic about the unthinkable technical progress of our Air Force. So why get excited?

    The presence of gaps in defense is not a mistake or a drawback. Our main defense is the enemy’s fear of retribution. the need to create an air defense / missile defense is a payment for the Kremlin’s impotence, for cowardice to respond to attacks. But no air defense can replace the fear of retaliation, times. Secondly, it’s cheaper to strike the aggressor’s airfield than to keep the air defense system in suspense for decades. Absolute air defense is unattainable, and the desire for it will ruin the country. In this regard, Moscow’s air defense is senseless and harmful.
    .
    Which, however, does not negate the need to develop air defense systems for covering retaliatory strike components.

    It is necessary to build pre-fabricated radar towers with AFAR, with a height of 100 to 200 meters. In places of permanent deployment of air defense systems. Their main task is to detect low-flying aerial objects at maximum range. The radar towers should increase the radio coverage to 70/80 km.

    Lucky. I'm on the third. When the transfers went (in this case, the regiments) - Damantsev's favorite trick.

    There are only two ways to "solve" such an unpleasant situation:

    Probably more than two. But what if you approach this problem outside the box. For example, we create an area at an altitude of 30m from the ground inside which the operation of any electronic systems will be impossible. The essence of the idea is to create a voltage on the target’s surface that exceeds kilovolt / meter, which causes breakdowns that damage the device’s electronics. To do this, you need a powerful source of energy, a directional antenna, and a magnetron. The system will need to be able to work both in the "shield" mode and in the "sword" mode. This means an antenna with a changing focus.

    The installation must be able to be powered both from the contact network (both voltage systems) and from the diesel generator.
    In addition to creating interference areas, the installation can be used for high-frequency irradiation of the ionosphere. This will cause malfunctions in the operation of enemy distant communication systems and lead to the formation of plasma formations extremely dangerous for aviation.

    A quick global strike will still not turn out to be quick and comprehensive. Part of the objectives as a result of missile defense, air defense, errors in target designation, interference, etc. all the same, it will remain unaffected, and thus launch a system of retaliatory destroying, but already nuclear, means.

      As I understand it, the goal of a quick global strike is to minimize the effectiveness of the nuclear response. "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."

    The article provides inaccurate data on the equipment of the regiments, most likely the information was taken from Wikipedia. For example: a regiment in the Vladimir Camp has long since surrendered Buki and S-300V, and in return received the S-300PS from 1982-83, released from storage at one of the arsenals. So, everything is not so rosy. Divisions of the regiment are on the database in the RPM. They would be scattered along the front, thereby increasing the zone of destruction. They talked about this before, but to no avail.
