NI: Russian air defense has something that US air defense doesn’t have

59
American Journal National Interest published an article that presents reflections on the presence of Russia weapons, which has no analogues in the United States. The conversation turned to the Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile and cannon complex. The NI said that the Russian "armor" today are the most suitable weapon for the destruction of UAVs aimed at attacks of certain objects.


From the material:
The US Army does not have air defense systems that at least partially had the capabilities of the Pantsir-S.


NI: Russian air defense has something that US air defense doesn’t have


American readers were told that the Pantsir-S is effective not only against a number of modifications of unmanned aerial vehicles, but also against other aerial targets, including low-flying aircraft and helicopters, as well as missiles. It is also described in the material that the “Pantsir-S” is a highly mobile installation on a high-wheel drive chassis.

The following are the authors' thoughts as to why the United States has not yet developed an analogue of such weapons. It is noted that the American ground forces still rely on any aviation their attacks will be protected by military aviation.

    In air defense, Russia is really strong. Moreover, the initial calculation was to build a layered air defense. Americans are accustomed to attacking (developing aviation and the navy), and no one jerking them, and therefore their air defense is not of paramount importance

      Air defense - missile defense systems of protection and advantages in global confrontation with the use of nuclear weapons, very conditional.
      Those. no one will survive the global attack.
      Nuclear-free war, yes, here the defense system will play a significant role !!!

        To proceed from the premise of the impossibility of confronting Russia's air defense and missile defense against a global nuclear strike is a dead end road. There is always a chance that in future developments a technology will appear to neutralize missiles with nuclear warheads, including ICBMs. That is, if damage is not completely avoided, then take it out of the fatal series. In my opinion, nominal Russia has more chances to achieve this. As the Inquisitive correctly noted, we have been doing and are focusing on the means of protection, including on a guaranteed strike of retaliation, and the United States on the attack, and this concept will not change, as it is due to geography.

          The concept of an attack by the Yankees has settled in the BRAINS and can’t change anything yet !!!
          Dream that we will all win ??? There are no real prerequisites for this, so I will not change my opinion !!! but to limit others with nothing, to dissuade them not in my rules, so everyone will dream about his own !!!

            You misunderstood my point in the comments. “We will defeat all” is a naive view from which I am far. I just said that the balance did not come to one side, so we have every chance if we do not break the Western concept of attack, then keep parity in nuclear weapons with a margin of safety. Air defense and missile defense must be developed - this is a priority for the defense industry. In the west, air defense and missile defense are not better than ours, which allows us to maintain parity in nuclear weapons.

              In terms of the size of the country, our air defense does not look all protective, the size of the country is large however, but the quality of equipment and systems, the tasks they perform is already a real defense. Amount to increase, "empty places" and routes to cover up and norms.
              Nobody is concerned about this, and it’s very expensive !!! Only Israel, but there are distances from Gulkin’s nose.
              So there is some parity with the most important hell, but does an ABM limitation agreement exist ??? as if!!!
              Violate it, no matter how, only our opponents are not very big lovers to respect sales of their contracts, it is known.
              So our nuclear weapons are the only thing they are forced to pay attention to, i.e. really afraid !!!
              No wonder they started a fuss for general nuclear disarmament !!! sly uncle Sam.

    Actually, the Americans have different principles of warfare. They are sure that they will smash and destroy any enemy “on far approaches!” For this they have purely missile systems, and they simply don’t need the likes of our “Shell”! Something Swedes will buy their anti-aircraft guns, cheaper than doing such weapons from scratch.

          Guns are cheaper, but even the required accuracy and density of fire is the most, the gun itself only holds for a while - overheating, soot, barrel wear have not been canceled, and during an intense battle the dispersion cone of the weapon increases by a factor !!! Need a second line of defense - missiles !!!
          The shell is a balanced air defense system!

            The cheapest way to fight drones is with electronic warfare. In particular, a directional electromagnetic pulse of high power, which would damage the electronics. On the other hand, if you are closely confronted with a similar threat, they will develop something quite simple and effective (or have already developed it for a long time), I have no doubt. It’s like a simple card case, cheap and cheerful. lol

              You wanted to say about the fired shell in the form of a card case, with a programmable timer undermining. Those. the projectile flies up and shoots forward with small components. Yes, this is very necessary for air defense against small drones and mines, and for ground use.

                Such things, where the shrapnel expands in all directions, or even in one direction, are good in war, when undermining is carried out over the territory of the enemy (in the First World War, our three-inch was called "oblique death"). Now, during the war on terrorism, when you do not know exactly where the enemy is and where is “friend”, everything is mixed up and there is no front line, this option is not entirely good. Take the example of duck hunters who successfully sell fairly small game with shots. For example, “a man with a gun”, is sitting in an ambush, and on command of “drones”, he gazes into the sky and, on occasion, can cause significant damage. Note at minimum cost. It is clear that not everything is so simple, but this is one of the options. If there is a special "gun", why not.

                  The problem of fractions or buckshot in a short range. If the drone is at an altitude of more than 300 meters, you will not remove it with any shotgun.
                  Your shotgun needs to fly 10 meters and shoot. Then you can hit the targets at the height of access to the artillery barrel.

    The concept of Matrasia is to gain supremacy in the air. They practically did not collide with the enemy with adequate aviation. A drone threat is not considered at all. Well, so "Alaverdi" is it possible? For our base? Since the strip-eared had nothing to do with drones (assembly kits, etc.) for the Barmalei, they didn’t interfere in the same way as “not supplying,” for example, the Taliban in Afghanistan ...

    The main difference between the Pantsir-C1 complex and foreign models is the ability to conduct targeted rocket fire at high speed launcher movement. Due to this possibility, when escorting a column of armored vehicles there is no need to stop the movement, to repel an enemy air attack, everything is done in dynamics.

    That's right. Political strategy dictates the development of the concept of the armed forces. Russia is a defensive side, which in words has created a powerful defensive missile defense. Weapons are checked in battle. So far, I have not seen anything significant, at least in the same Syria. Yes, the planes did not seem to crash and fly. Missiles took off and probably did not fly off to the side. But the question is about efficiency. It is terrible to imagine that over 2,5 thousand air strikes were carried out with modern weapons. I sometimes ask myself, what can be bombed in little Syria for such a long time? Okay, I say, almost the entire Soviet bomb supply has been disposed of, where the bombs fell like ordinary ingots. It was a sinful affair that I expected a local clash of American and Russian know-how in Syria. Besides drones, we never saw anything. True, the Sunshine did a little work in revenge for our downed plane. The Israelis, Americans, and even the hunchbacked French and Germans both flew and fly in the sky of Syria, although the defense ministry solemnly rattled about the closed sky. Bored, gentlemen are good!
