Military air defense will repel precision weapons

53



Military air defense is less known to the general public than the air defense of the Aerospace Forces, but it is from this type of troops that the army’s ability to perform assigned tasks in the context of a modern war depends. Lieutenant-General Alexander Leonov, commander of the military air defense of the Armed Forces, told Izvestia about new anti-aircraft weapons systems, promising developments and combat experience in Syria.

- What is the difference between the air defense of the Aerospace Forces (VKS) and the military air defense of the Armed Forces (AR)?

- Air defense troops of the VKS have in advance equipped starting positions and command posts. Their main purpose is to repel sudden aggression from the aerospace sphere, to protect administrative and key industrial centers.

Troops defense provides cover for army groups and military rear facilities. Its formations, units and subdivisions act directly in the combat formations of the covered troops, which include organizational ones.

- What new systems have entered service with military air defense in recent years?

- Since 2014, the newest modification of the S-300V4 long-range anti-aircraft missile system (SAM), the most "long-range" in its class, began to enter service. In it, the capabilities of the anti-missile component are significantly enhanced, the affected area is increased aviation funds. The modernization capabilities of the system make it possible to hit ballistic and advanced aircraft.

The development of the medium-range air defense system of the Buk family continues. The modifications “Buk-М2” and “Buk-МЗ” appeared. The radar illumination and guidance has been introduced into the Buk-М2 system. This made it possible to expand the radio horizon at extremely small flight echelons of the target and increase the range of destruction of cruise missiles. Each fire weapon provides detection, identification and firing simultaneously up to four targets from an unprepared starting position.

Since 2016, serial deliveries of the latest modification of the Buk-MZ complex have begun. Due to the multifunctional radar with a phased antenna array and the new missiles, the Buk-MZ complexes are 2 – 3 times larger than the capabilities of the previous air defense missiles of this class. One self-propelled unit is capable of firing up to six targets.

In 2012, tactical-level air defense units began to be equipped with the Tor-M2U short-range air defense system. They were transferred to the modern element base, four-channel capability was provided for the target, noise immunity was enhanced, and the possibilities of interfacing with other firing means over digital communication channels were enhanced. Implemented the exchange of information about the air situation between the two combat vehicles when operating in the "link" mode. It provides the most effective protection against high precision weapons.

Since 2016, the latest modification of the Tor-М2 air defense system began to arrive. High maneuverability and firing characteristics make it possible to use them as highly mobile reconnaissance-firing complexes. The use of a new anti-aircraft guided missile made it possible to expand the boundaries of the affected area almost one and a half times and bring the combat vehicle’s ammunition to the 16 missiles. Tor-M2 remains the only means of this class in the world capable of simultaneously firing four missiles at the same time with four missiles.

For direct protection of individual tactical units from 2014, the Verba portable anti-aircraft missile system (MANPADS) is used. Due to the use of a new optical homing head, the zone of shelling of targets with low thermal radiation and protection from pyrotechnic interference was increased. As a result, the consumption of missiles for hitting one target was reduced, and the effectiveness of the complex was increased 1,5 – 2 times as compared to Igla.

- The C-300B4 SAM system was present in the group of troops in Syria. Could you tell us more about this?

- To expand the airspace control area in eastern Syria, prevent enemy aircraft from attacking Khmeimim airfield and Tartus logistics base in October 2016, combat division in the designated area was taken over by the C-300BX4 air defense division.

During the execution of combat missions, strategic reconnaissance and bombers of the US Air Force were repeatedly detected and taken to automatic tracking. Goals were detected and followed steadily. The impact of high intensity interference could not interfere with the work of combat crews.

The crews of tactical aircraft reacted rather nervously to their sustained tracking by air defense systems at 200 – 300 km.

The personnel and equipment of the division adequately fulfilled the assigned tasks and in June of this year were returned to the point of permanent deployment.

- Please tell us about the development of promising models of weapons and military equipment in the interests of military air defense.

- Now in the interests of military air defense carried out four major development work.

At the final stage is the development of the “Arctic” short-range air defense system Tor-M2. The facilities of the complex are located on the basis of high-traffic two-link DT-30PM tractors. The air defense system is capable of carrying combat duty in the Arctic and the Far North, both as part of a battalion and fully autonomously. The combat equipment of the Tor-MXNXDT complex was presented to the general public at the 2 Victory Parade of May 9. The first set will go to the troops next year.

To replace the Shilka complexes, a new anti-aircraft artillery complex is being developed with innovative rounds of ammunition. It is designed to destroy tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), single rocket launchers of the MLRS, cruise missiles, strike elements of high-precision weapons systems, tactical aircraft, helicopters of fire support, as well as ground and surface lightly armored targets. The peculiarity of the complex is its low radioactivity due to the use of passive means of reconnaissance, detection and tracking of air targets.

For subunits armed with man-portable anti-aircraft missile systems of the Igla-S and Verba types, the development of the command machine of the platoon commander and the combat vehicle of the anti-aircraft gunners section is being completed. A combat vehicle is capable of conducting reconnaissance of airborne targets and their bombardment of homing missiles from a place and in motion.

Tests of a universal target-training complex for training units of military air defense are being completed. It uses software and remotely controlled reusable targets that simulate a cruise missile, a tactical UAV, a jet plane, and a hovering attack helicopter.

      So I, Professor, would like to ask, always bravura articles on VO. On the topic, we’ll all be strong too. Not a single analytical conclusion in comparison with the weapons likely. Everything is better. Or- "We are few, but we are in vests!" By the way, this is not about what I'm holding you. Well and you, Oleg with New! Stop impudent. You burrow too much.

      Where did they go? Most likely they were sent where they were .. There was no interception there. More precisely, there were teams to intercept. And you’ll get the hell out of our database!

      Well, according to United States Navy reports, the attack was carried out from ships in the Cyprus area, to the Shairat air base about 250 km in a straight line, with most of it being about 170 km above the sea surface.
      Where could the Tamahawks go if they were attacked by electronic warfare, most likely they drowned, that’s not their photo.

        “If they were attacked by electronic warfare means” - They cannot “drop” cruise missiles physically. All but one of the missiles flew to the airfield - a whisker.

      Professor, let's assume this is a technical glitch. smile In this scenario, the scandal should be "under the bar." Moreover, a scandal of this level threatens with the loss of the contract. And if something like this happens with the systems responsible for the defense of the ship? And then the best and exceptional crew will go to feed ordinary fish.

            You are partially right, but it was created to hit a larger set of air targets than only the Kyrgyz Republic
            The MiG-31 is designed to intercept and destroy cruise missiles in the entire range of altitudes and speeds of flight accessible to aerodynamic aircraft (including cruise missiles performing low-altitude flight in the rounding mode of the terrain), low-flying satellites, stealth planes, and other air targets any types at extremely small, small, medium and high altitudes, day and night, in simple and complex meteorological conditions, when the enemy uses active and passive radar interference, as well as false thermal targets d.

            I know.
            The cruiser’s primary weapon was originally the P-500 Basalt anti-ship missiles with the Argon control system. In total, the ship has 16 missiles installed in 8 and twin hated launchers located on the upper deck. In the process of modernization, these missiles were replaced by P-1000 "Volcano" missiles, which are distinguished by a longer firing range - 600-700 km.

      But this is not a highly accurate air defense task ...

      Compared to Soviet times, our capabilities in terms of air defense have decreased several times. And in the military air defense probably an order of magnitude. So it was not possible to replace the 1: 1 ratio as planned by the “Circle” air defense system on С-300В. Brigades equipped with tracked "three hundred" and a dozen will not be typed, and the capable "Bukovsky" is not much more.

No air defense system in the world can hit a missile system flying at an altitude of 100 m, at a range of over 40-45 km, precisely because of this very curvature, so your sarcasm is absolutely inappropriate.

The fact that we are now surrounded by a yapping flock is also a "merit" of our diplomacy starting with Shevarnadze - Kozyrev.

      Have you already calculated the number of UAVs, cruise missiles, aircraft, MLRS missiles available to NATO and compared with the number of our air defense systems?
      about,
      100 Tomahawks a year, NATO countries purchase. Of course, if necessary, they can multiply the output ... But for now, approximate parity is present.

    Roughly cut down your companions and sleep peacefully

    I like these comrades. I really want our systems to be able to do this, but ... Communication with the satellite is supported through a narrowly targeted, well-encrypted channel, and most likely throughout the flight of the Kyrgyz Republic. Ax designers are also not stupid people - plus to the satellite there is also an optical route correction system and also an inertial one. Now imagine the effect of an electronic warfare system on an ax, for example. Suppose that, by some miracle, this system appeared directly on its path, even suppose that it was able to suppress the communication with the satellite with a strong impulse. And now the first question is - at what distance from the guarded object is the electronic warfare station so as not to extinguish the electronics of its own object with its impulses? Vootoot - at least, at a distance exceeding the radius of action of the system itself. Now the second question - what to do with optical and inertial guidance systems? Well, put out your satellite, so what? This section of the Kyrgyz Republic will fly by inertial and optics, and then, leaving the zone of electronic warfare, will restore communication with satellites, correct its position and hit the target. Even if you put the EW station in the center of the object, envelop it with smoke (so that the optics do not see it) - on an inertial system it will still hit the target. Even if he strikes with a 10-20 meter KVO, the damage will still be. If this is, for example, an airfield airfield, damage to the strip is enough to prevent aviation from taking off for the next 3-4 hours, or, if it is already in the air, leave early, because to fly to the alternate aerodrome is an extra time in flight, extra fuel, which means reduced operation time. Something like this. Just don’t think that I am an “all-round proponent” - I’m just a little versed in this matter and try to objectively look at things from the bell tower of a simple design engineer.

        Russian Panzer needs 900 pieces all over Russia, then we will be reliably covered from the Kyrgyz Republic.

      Here www technology in data encryption is not quite suitable. The steeper you encrypted the packet, the greater the likelihood that the recipient will not decrypt it. A package can be battered, for example, by a thunderstorm front, or by enemy systems.

      The defense of the object is built on the basis of topographic data and miracles simply do not happen here. The circumstances for which the "ax" can be guided are also taken into account - for example, along a river bed. All this is about how to drive a rat into a corner. In the situation described by you, the impact will be not only on communications, but also on the electronic components of the rocket itself.

      The electronic warfare task in this case is to distort the data received by the rocket from the sensors. For example, an altimeter will show false data. In this situation, a flight with an envelope of terrain will end very quickly.

        I can only partially agree with you. In the format of a comment, it’s long and incomprehensible to describe the operation of various electronic warfare devices, maybe someday I’ll mature to write an article on this topic. Due to a lack of understanding of the principles of operation of electronic warfare devices and their specific purpose, people greatly overestimate their capabilities.

    A year ago, it seems, a drone flew around the Air Defense Academy. And in the whole Academy there was neither manpower nor the means to prevent flights. This case is many times more indicative than peppy reporting articles. Fiercely I hope that there will be at least fifty officers in these troops who are really ready for real surprises ...

    I like these comrades. I'd like our systems to be so able, but ..

    Exactly, BUT ours have recently transmitted to the mattresses a signal from the ZhPS satellite that they are 27 kilometers on land. Therefore, it is enough to change the coordinates and that's it. the rackets will fly the wrong way ... drinks tongue

    However, some "comrades" believe that having no analogues in the world of S-300, S-400 or S-x00 hermetically closes the sky.

    And some of the "comrades" who are advertising, really believe that some weapons system may not have analogues in the world. This is nonsense of journalists, nobody in the modern world is allowed to go far ahead in the arms sector, someone is better, someone is worse, but everyone is at about the same level at the development stage.

      Why can't it be like that? It happens that there is no analogue system in the world ... such a simple question - why actually?
      Why is Israel the same shell? what do they have where to go on it? We have open spaces, we cannot see edge by edge, and a threat can arise from any direction! here we are making mobile complexes packed with everything you need ... the truth is now it all docked under a centralized management system! That’s all exclusivity!
      The category of “rationality”, “seeing everything and striking everything” is an advancing race ... here we can be in the forefront, but it is still declarative and not the fact that someone else will not break ahead.
      We have air defense - missile defense, no one will risk taking a look at all, but anyway, the main limiting factor for those "wishing" to "feel" us is nuclear weapons and nothing has been invented here !!!
