National Interest tells why you should be wary of C-400

The C-400 Russian Triumph anti-aircraft missile system (ZRS) is a weapon that changes the “rules of the game,” writes the National Interest magazine.


National Interest tells why you should be wary of C-400


“C-400 surpass Western counterparts in several ways at once. Firstly, the Russian model can launch several anti-aircraft guided missiles of various ranges at once. In particular, the range of such missiles reaches 40, 120, 250 and 400 kilometers, respectively. American Patriots are capable of launching missiles with a range of only 96 kilometers, ”the article quotes. RIA News.

Secondly, the magazine notes the excellent characteristics of one of the anti-aircraft missiles (9М96Е2 with a range of 120 kilometers), which C-400 can launch. Such a “rocket not only flies at a speed of five kilometers per second, but is also capable of shooting down targets flying up to five meters above the ground,” the author writes.

As one of the leading military experts, Carlo Kopp, told the publication, “C-400 can be equipped with special radars designed to hit modern, inconspicuous aircraft, such as the F-22 and F-35”.

At the same time, the magazine emphasizes that the development of the C-400 allows the Russian military to have “a relatively small fighter fleet compared to the US and NATO countries”.

The author also notes that the Russian air defense system poses a real threat to aviation radio detection and guidance complexes of the USA and some other NATO countries. In particular, he is referring to the American Boeing E-3 Sentry early warning aircraft.

            Personally, I do not see anything supernatural. This is the necessary speed to intercept the target.

            You are not surprised at flights to space when speed is needed from 11 km \ s?

              No need to compare different environments. Space is an airless space. And these missiles fly in the atmosphere.

                To get off the ground and go into space, you must pick up speed at least 7 km \ s, and this is in the atmosphere. Learn the materiel.

                . And these missiles fly in the atmosphere.


                So what ? It does not use air either as the working fluid of the engine, or as an oxidizing agent. So there is no air intake, the main source of resistance. She does not need aerodynamic surfaces, like an airplane (she does not fly at "landing" speeds). Pipe with scanty resistance and tremendous traction. A rocket will always have an advantage over an airplane - it will fly close and only one way laughing A bunch of restrictions disappear. Hence the conclusion - the aircraft should not climb into the air defense zone itself, but send the same missiles there, comparable in range, speed and price. Fortunately, the initial conditions (altitude and speed) are all better. True, the starting mass of air-to-air missiles is limited.

                  And I heard that some kind of plasma is formed there if the rocket flies at such speeds in the atmosphere and the rocket becomes deaf and blind. This is nonsense?

      And why do you compare missile defense with air defense? They have a slightly different purpose. It's like comparing ATGMs and a tank gun, as for me. Or a helicopter and a fighter. And subsonic tomahawks wow - a great weapon for an instant hit. A rocket that will fly to the target for 2 hours. Great instantness.

    Question to the editors of TopVar- how can you reprint this old donkey's opinion about C-400?

    First, the Russian model can launch several anti-aircraft guided missiles of various ranges at once. The American Patriots are capable of launching missiles with a range only 96 kilometers ”


    Secondly, the magazine notes the excellent characteristics of one of the anti-aircraft missiles (9М96Е2 with a range of 120 kilometers), which C-400 can launch.

    MIM-104 rocket
    Rocket diameter: 410 mm
    Missile length: 5310 mm
    Scope of stabilizers: mm 870
    Missile weight: 912 kg
    Missile weight in TPK: kg 1696
    Warhead Weight: 91 kg

    Max. flight speed: no more than 1700 m / s missiles, 1800 m / s target
    MIM-104A / B Mach Xnumx
    MIM-104C Mach 5 (PAC-2)

    Firing range:
    minimum 3 km
    maximum ballistic target: 20 km (MIM-104C / D / E)
    maximum aerodynamic goal: 80 km, maximum 100 from the radar, taking into account the removal of the division and PU.

    The height of the target hit is minimum 0,06 km; maximum 24 / 25 km
    Max. transverse overload: 30 g
    Flight time: 8,3-17 with
    Engine running time 11,5 with
    Number of missiles on PU: 4

    Such a “rocket not only flies at a speed of five kilometers per second,

    Here is a nerd. A little bit more and satellites can be output to low orbit with the help of this 420 kg SAM.
    4800m / s is the speed of the targets hit radial , moreover, with respect to PU, and for the 48H6E3 / 48Н6-2 / 48Н6ДМ
    NGO "Almaz" (http://www.raspletin.com)
    Radial velocity of targets hit, m / s

    For 9М96Е2 to 2000 m / s (target)

      opinion of this old donkey about the S-400

      Why old? This is just a brazen chatterbox, and that’s it. We have similar ones. As much as you like. Just as an example — whatever a speaker on a Solovyov’s type talk show — he’s almost always the director or president of an institute or center of super-duper strategic hyper-research or super-development or strategic information or strategic communications or anything else hyper - universal. But usually says the contents of yesterday's newspapers (government). The question is not why the ax publishes this - in order to scold and visit and wind up advertising revenue - and why does the national interest publish this - it seems like a clever guy is directing it.

        At what distance is it found in exercises, and at what distance is it shot down?
        This is a question-to-question.
        The Kaban target, unlike the F-35, will not even launch an anti-radar missile in the S-400
        at close range. But the stealth fighter will do it for sure. Moreover, from an extremely large distance.

            I will focus on the subject of the Boar: its intercepts during exercises are carried out at close distances, when the S-400 centimeter radar sees such a stealth target. But to intercept the stealth fighter, it is too late. He will shoot earlier.
            This is the problem.

            "does not seem to be blind, apparently very sighted" ////

            Alas. And not only Russian radars of air defense missile systems are blind against stealth aircraft, but also American and Israeli ones. The solution will be over the years, but so far it has not been. Almaz-Antey came up with a "patch" - to carry a huge radar of a meter range, but this is like a guide dog for the blind. Not so scary to go, but glasses do not replace.

              Well, you have already decided - does not see at all or sees, but "at close distances." I have already discussed this topic with you. Statements like - "the centimeter radar does not see the F-35 at all, even flying over it" I consider too optimistic for stealth. It seems impossible to me and successful intercepts of a target missile with an EPR of 2-4 square meters. see this confirm. But at what distance, yes. It is quite possible, and even more likely, in a single standoff between the F-35 and the S-400, this distance will not be large and the air defense has almost no chances. But serious air defense should be layered, incl. air defense aviation should actively help. And in this case, the very fact that the S-400 centimeter radar captures stealth and brings the missile to the target is already not bad at all and significantly changes the alignment.
              And by the way, there is no specific information at what exact distance the boar is intercepted during exercises, so it’s hard to guess something here.

    Paradox: in articles from Russia it is narrated that the S-400 is the most reliable protection .... in the articles from the USA, the analysis is not about whether the S-400 can bring down, for example, F-22, but about whether the S- 400 survive if attacked by an F-22.

    S-400 should be feared only in one case, when there is a temptation to attack Russia. Although Russia can even set the brains on such attackers with an ax. But with the S-400 it is more convenient.
