Syrian experience: President-S missile defense installed on Mi-26Т2

The on-board defense complexes "President-S" in Syria securely cover Russian military and transport helicopters from possible attacks of enemy air defense weapons. Therefore, it is not surprising that military officials of foreign armies became interested in the Russian novelty.

The Egyptian Air Force became the first, whose rotary-winged Mi-17 received this complex. And the other day the web has an image of the Algerian heavy multipurpose helicopter Mi-26Т2, which is also equipped with the Presidential-S complex.

Syrian experience: President-S missile defense installed on Mi-26Т2

Created by Russian engineers and designers, a modern aircraft defense complex can effectively capture the irradiation of an airplane or a helicopter with radar or laser guidance.

Realizing that the enemy took the car on sight, President-S launches the entire range of systems of electronic and optical-electronic protection. Both false thermal targets and special laser suppression stations can be put into action, disabling the homing heads of several missiles flying from different directions.

According to military experts, the experience of local conflicts shows that it is helicopters-giants who need additional protection from man-portable air defense systems, the production of which is now established at military enterprises of many states, reports RG-Sila

      Well ... we’re trying to create an image like this, but so far they’re buying ... fu35ty ... somehow you need to “break” the situation.

    And how does this complex determine the capture of GOS MANPADS? Is there a completely passive system? Or is there shooting torches in time and at random?

      It determines the very fact of launch using UV sensors that detect the "torch" of the rocket.

          Here is what the Director General of Zenit, Professor Alexander Kobzar, told the RG correspondent:
          - The work of our complex is based on highly focused and specially modulated radiation from a specially developed sapphire lamp. In the missile control system, a phantom image of the target appears, which its electronic “brain” perceives as the main target. A kind of transcendent virtual reality appears, which persistently attracts to itself. The missile rushes into empty space, where it self-destructs at the estimated time. It would seem that everything is very simple, but no one else in the world has solved this “simplest” task but we haven’t brought it to industrial production.

          According to Professor Kobzar, it is worth adding important information for compatriots. “President-S” not only passed the whole range of state tests, it was put into service and has already been put into serial production. By order of the Air Force Commander-in-Chief, Colonel-General Alexander Zelin, not a single new helicopter designed for operation in hot spots can be sent to the troops without an established complex of active protection against MANPADS.

    I saw a video about these complexes. A good System. It protects well from infrared seekers, but it’s not clear, does he save from mixed seekers? Does anyone know, odnoforumane?

      Protection from defeat by guided air-to-air and surface-to-air missiles with infrared homing heads is provided by a laser optoelectronic suppression station based on a multispectral solid-state or gas laser. A station weighing 100–150 kg is capable of detecting and selecting targets, tracking and round-off sequentially suppressing at least two simultaneously attacking missiles at a range of 500–5000 m in a 90-degree sector vertically.

      Another main element of aircraft (helicopter) protection is the station of active radio interference. It resists missiles with radar targeting systems by setting electronic interference at the stages of detection, tracking, guidance and attack of an aircraft. In the working sector of 120 and 60 degrees horizontally and vertically, a station weighing 51,5 kg can suppress at least four enemy electronic weapons using all the main types of interference. An active towed radar trap can also be used to protect long-range, military transport and front-line aircraft.

      Does it depend on what you mean by these “mixed fugs”?

    Now that the “President" has gone to the market, experts will quickly develop a missile capable of "breaking through" the defense ... the eternal struggle of the sword and shield. Ours will need to invent something new ...

      President-C was released to the market only after the development of an advanced "deputy." Oh, what is it, Lever, Vitebsk or some Sphere, I don’t know, but it definitely is.

      The Syrian experience is that we did not lose a single helicopter from MANPADS.

        Antidote 25 January 2018 15: 12
        But they lost from the anti-tank systems. And how much information was there about effectiveness? How many rockets were taken?
        1. Muvka
          Muvka 25 January 2018 15: 22
          No one will tell you how many missiles were diverted, but the fact that not a single helicopter was lost from them is a fact.

            I would not be so sure of the silence of the PR department of the MO. If you want to sell something, then any rustle needs to be turned in your own favor, especially the “Syrian experience”. Hence the conclusion: they did not shoot at turntables from MANPADS, and there were no losses from MANPADS, fact.

              Is Mzhdahad’s video like that, fake? they shot at the Syrian Gazelles, flunked the Syrian crocodile, but did they disdain the Russian ones?

                The fact that a balloon was blown out of the armor was trumpeted at every corner, that the T-90 was a complete child prodigy too, and then "an unrequited analogue repulsed an attack of the air defense forces of the igil" and suddenly silence. Coincidence? I don’t think so. I don’t communicate with felt boots, sorry.
         28 January 2018 15: 53
                  Excuse me, but now on the topic of the absence of losses from MANPADS and, in general, MANPADS firing at our helicopters, what can I say? And here is the shelling and President-C?
                  Somehow famously your thought in Shakespeare's "turns its run to the side."

    Cool ... Syrian experience.
    So, when in 2002 a “cow” was shot down near Khankala and 127 people died (to this day the largest disaster in the RF Armed Forces), this did not add any experience. And it was necessary to get through Syria 13 years later in order to realize that the Mi-26 needed protection against anti-aircraft weapons.

      Yes, because the parquet generals do not care about the soldier! Their life and pension rewards do not depend on him. Now, if they had strictly asked for the losses, right up to the VSW, then KAZ on tanks would have stood in Afghanistan, unloading, and the form would have been normal.

    Syrian experience: missile defense "President-S"
    The name is loud. But data on at least one fact of protection against homing missiles is not provided. Could and give statistics, if of course it is.
    1. Kasym
      Kasym 25 January 2018 18: 19
      It is necessary to look for statistics of losses of turntables. Even better if with a description of the reasons. For example, the turntable that was shot down during the downing of the Su-24 with Peshkov. There she was destroyed on earth. hi

      During World War II, the British put anti-aircraft guns on them to protect their transports. After a while, they decided to calculate how many aircraft transports were shot down. It turned out 0! And then they decided to remove the anti-aircraft guns, but there was an officer who decided to count not the downed planes, but the sunk transports. All of these vessels were unarmed.
      So it is here. It depends on how you count. And what
      In the parrots? How many times have gunmen fired at our helicopters? I think no one knows this. And what are the losses? The bandits would probably have shot this on video and posted on the network. They could not pass by such an event. No video? So there are no such losses.
      Here are the facts!
    APASUS 25 January 2018 19: 43
    Well, well done Algerian Air Force, and when on all of our helicopters such a system will become a regular one? Again, all for export
