The air defense of the Ground Forces of Russia will receive new modifications of the C-300В anti-aircraft missile system.

The air defense of the Ground Forces of Russia will receive new modifications of the C-300В anti-aircraft missile system.The military air defense of the Russian Land Forces will be equipped this year with the latest, in a row, modification of the C-300B anti-aircraft missile system. The official representative of the Ground Forces, Colonel Sergei Vlasov, informed ITAR-TASS today.

"In the course of the development of the weapons system of the Air Defense Forces of the Ground Forces this year, it is planned to complete the modernization of the C-300В system to the C-300B4 level," he said.
“The range of their firing with heavy missiles exceeds 300 km,” added Vlasov.

At the end of March, he recalled, tactical maneuvers of an anti-aircraft missile brigade from Naro-Fominsk were held at the Kapustin Yar range in the Astrakhan region. During combat firing, the upgraded C-300В anti-aircraft missile systems confirmed their high performance, hitting air targets.

The C-300B ("Troop"), unlike the conventional medium-range missile system, the C-300 is a separate development for the Ground Forces of the Russian Federation and has a launcher on a tracked chassis. One of the important differences between the C-300В and the "parallel" system is the presence of not one, but two types of anti-aircraft guided missiles. One is used to hit aerodynamic targets at a distance of up to 75 km. Another ground-to-ground class can hit ballistic targets as well as aircraft of all types at speeds up to 3000 m / s at a distance of up to 100 km.

The performance characteristics of the C-300B4 system exceed the capabilities of the previous, third modification 1,5-2,3 times. In terms of firing range and other parameters, it approaches the characteristics of the C-400 Triumph due to the introduction of new components, the introduction of modern element base and computing facilities.

      Back in Soviet times, a major technological breakthrough was made in air defense, which will allow Russia to remain in the leading position for a long time. The main thing is that "do not rest on success," but continue to develop and sell systems with caution, so as not to fall into the hands of our "sworn friends" smile

        As Volodya Putin said - Russia can sleep peacefully for another 50 years - guaranteed! Due to - already existing developments, naturally - the basis and basis of which are still Soviet developments. As they say - without A - there would be no B.
        Many thanks and deep bow - to the whole USSR and to those people - who worked in it - for the benefit of all mankind! (this is not a glitch - it’s for the good of mankind - if it weren’t for the USSR and Russia, and if it had not been for development, there wouldn’t have been 100%, then the whole world would have plunged into American.osos. slavery! For they would do whatever they want and wherever they want - and whether they would be the only superpower-tyrant - to whose Golden billion - the rest of the planet would be humped).

          Russia has supplied Syria with advanced S-300 missiles, and has also sent experts to help the Syrians use this system. God grant that the Syrians would learn HOW TO. skies of Syria.

          The Russian government received an award from a group of scientists for the creation of computer technology to ensure the safety of aircraft.

          Our aircraft and helicopters have a rather strange reputation. In terms of their flying qualities, they are quite competitive with the world's best technology, but their "brain", electronic control systems, are clearly inferior. It is no secret that when buying our aircraft, foreign partners extract electronic stuffing from it, the so-called avionics, and install more modern ones. Cause? We are seriously lagging behind in the element base. By the way, this lag has led to a series of accidents in our space technology. And in such a situation, a group of Russian scientists was awarded a prestigious prize for the creation of avionics. Is it strange? And yet it is so.

          Russian scientists created avionics on new principles. Tests on domestic aircraft showed that this technique is in no way inferior to the best foreign counterparts, but surpasses it in some ways. For example, in radiation resistance. This is very important, since in the upper atmosphere the radiation background can exceed the norm by 100 times, which can lead to a malfunction of technology.

          Most disasters today are blamed on humans. But the devices are literally crammed with smart electronics, there are computers, and memory, and communication lines, and information collection systems, and much more. Why, having such help, do the planes fall? The fact is that both the technique and the tasks set before it are rapidly becoming more complicated, experts explain. Let's say military aviation is constantly changing. There are tremendous speeds, and the most difficult maneuvers, and counteraction to a sophisticated, technically well-equipped enemy. You must constantly monitor the huge amount of information about your car, about the enemy, about the state of the external environment. Even the electronic brain does not keep up with the requirements imposed on the aircraft. And in the air, special, mutually exclusive requirements are imposed on him. It should "click" the most difficult tasks as quickly as possible and at the same time be extremely compact and simple. After all, the more complicated the technique, the lower its reliability. And also to resist various external influences - radiation, temperature, pressure, humidity.

          But this is not enough. Alas, the electronic brain is limited in its talents. The famous Moore's law, which states that the number of elements in silicon microcircuits, does not allow doubling every year. But this cannot continue indefinitely, it is impossible to plant more elements per unit area than a certain physical limit. What is the way out? Today, the world's leading laboratories are looking for different ways to get around Moore's law. For example, new elements made of other materials are "settled" in ordinary silicon microcircuits. Russian scientists from the Moscow State Technical University of Radio Engineering, Electronics and Automation have used well-known ferroelectrics. They do not allow electric current to pass through, but at the same time they have one amazing quality: under various influences, say, changes in temperature, they change their polarization. And only due to this, the electronic brain began to think much faster. The fact is that in ordinary silicon microcircuits information is received and transmitted sequentially, which slows down all work. And ferroelectrics made it possible to create many parallel channels at once. As a result, the speed of information processing has increased many times over.

          But ferroelectrics and all their "pluses" seem to have been known for a long time. Why is their time just now? According to experts, they are very capricious. It is very difficult to "hook" them into an ordinary silicon microcircuit. The fact is that to create such a hybrid from a ferroelectric and silicon, they must be processed at a temperature of 700 C. But this mode "kills" a silicon microcircuit, the upper limit for it is 500 C. It took scientists many years to go down to this limit with 700 C. Every ten degrees - it was a victory, like a sprinter's thousandths in a hundred meters.

          Today in the world, only a few companies have mastered this technology and are selling their avionics worldwide. Now Russia has a chance to join this race.

          Help "RG"

          The team of authors, awarded the government prize "For the development of effective algorithms for information processing and the creation of fault-tolerant integrated computing systems, devices and components of on-board systems for ensuring the safety of the functioning of aircraft", includes Alexander Sigov (head of work), Konstantin Vorotilov, Alexander Luchnikov, Evgeny Ivashov, Alexey Kaperko, Sergey Stepanchikov, Alexander Vorobyov, Nikolay Makarov.

    The S-300 is good, but the S-400 needs to move on. Deep modification of the S-300 is still inferior to the S-400. But still well done can not but rejoice smile

    In the news, I noticed again the topic: "The S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, during the exercise at the Eastern Military District in Buryatia, fired for the first time at low-altitude cruise missiles," ITAR-TASS reported, the head of the press Air Defense Service Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Gordeev. The missiles were launched from the Tu-95MS strategic bombers. " It seems as if they coped with the tasks. There are no other details

    The S-400 is part of the Air Force, and the S-300B is the air defense of the ground forces. So one another is not a hindrance. Moreover, more and more often the air defense of the ground forces began to be involved in air defense databases.

    Endlessly, yes. And during the overhaul, while standing in service, it is simply necessary.

    The news, of course, was very pleasing good but nevertheless I just can’t understand what is the point of upgrading the S-300, if you have already had the S-400? Explain if possible what

      C-400 is still very small, and C-300 is very much.

      The S-400s are produced rather slowly, so the "three hundredth" will still have to serve for 8-10 years at least.
      To keep them "at the level" they need to be modernized.

    Today there was news that the C-300 systems successfully fired at cruise missiles.

    C-300 anti-aircraft missile systems during the exercises at the training range of the Eastern Military District in Buryatia for the first time fired at cruise missiles flying at low altitude. This, according to ITAR-TASS, said the head of the BBO press service, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Gordeev. The missiles were launched from the side of the strategic bombers Tu-95MS.

    "In addition, the air defense units simultaneously fired at various types of air targets moving at different heights and at different speeds, and also practiced firing tasks at ground targets," Gordeev said. In addition to the S-300, the Buk and Osa short-range anti-aircraft missile systems are also involved in the exercises. According to the leadership of the exercise, all units coped with the assigned tasks.
