S-350 "Vityaz" in action: in South Korea showed a new air defense system

South Korea’s air defense forces conduct exercises almost every two months. And this is not surprising: the situation around the DPRK is heating up every day. During his recent visit to Japan, US President Donald Trump once again reminded that the States reserve the possibility of a forceful solution to the North Korean problem. These words provoked support in Japan itself. However, the South Koreans were not happy about it - after all, they, in the event of the outbreak of war, will take the brunt of their northern neighbor.

At the last air defense exercises, the “southerners” demonstrated the near-ground, medium and long-range air defense systems, including the Korean version of the Vityaz C-350 air defense system (the system was developed jointly by two countries), which is called KM-SAM (“Cheolmae-2” ).

      difficult, but I will try ... from this article:
      Korean version of the S-350 Vityaz air defense system (the system was developed jointly by two countries), which is called KM-SAM ("Cheolmae-2")

      from an interview with the head of Almaz-Antey newspaper Kommersant:
      We won an international tender from Americans and French in South Korea. And they concluded with considerable difficulties an export contract to develop for her such a medium-range complex - KM-SAM

          From the interview with the comment above: "with considerable difficulties." As far as I understand, the s-350 is something stripped down (possibly from the same s-400). So why do we need to say so-so with the S-350, if now we are putting into service the S-400, and there already the S-500

    Beautiful frames. Once again, I was convinced of the advantage of our line of air defense systems. Yet a vertical start for them is very advanced. And further. Someone noticed that there is one of the flying targets clearly of our design?

      Good afternoon!
      The silhouette of the target is similar to the BQM-167 Skeeter

    It is already standing in Syria.
    In September, the unloading of the complex was completed at the port of Tartus, after which he went to Masyaf, where he took up combat duty (see photo).
    The new complex will be included in the general air defense system of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria, which will become even more reliable, ”the soldier said.

    S-400 Turkey, Saudi Arabia, now South Korea with the S-350. What to pull, can the USA immediately deliver? The rotten Kremlin smells! Or maybe I'm misunderstanding something !?

      I’m afraid to imagine what will happen in the 500th if the 400th is sold right and left like that ...
      Exactly ROFAR and lasers.
