ON THE HALOPING TENDENCY OF THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE OPERATIONAL STRATEGIC SITUATION ON WESTERN SUPPLIES TO RUSSIA
Through the thick veil of disturbing and sometimes tragic events that rolled on our people since February 2018, the scenario of the final round, the foundation of which was prepared by our overseas and Western European "partners" since 4 April 1946, when saved the world from fascism, begins to be more clearly seen superpower was immediately opposed to the largest in modern military stories military-political bloc - the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which reformatted the post-war world into that field of pre-escalation and absurdity, which we have been seeing for 72 years. To date, the European command of the US Armed Forces and the Strategic Command of the NATO Joint Operations Operations (the latter includes the majority of the General Staff of the armies of the Western European member countries of the alliance) have almost completed the formation of shock fists in several operational areas, including the Black Sea, Baltic and Karelian. The main air components for conducting a strategic aerospace offensive operation against military industrial facilities and air defense systems of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the Southern and Western Military Districts today are:
- 52 tactical fighter air wing of the US Air Force; has experience of operational transfer from the German Spangdal airbase to the Polish Avb Redzikovo and is represented by a squadron of X-NUMX F-25C / D Block 16, as well as 50 Long-Range Radar Detection AN / TPS-2 Radar for more effective execution of tasks to achieve air superiority and control of tactical air situation; also specializes in the tasks of suppressing air defense and destroying strategic enemy ground targets using AGM-75E AARGM and AGM-88B JASSM-ER anti-radar missiles, respectively;
- 48 tactical fighter air wing of the United States Air Force in Leikenhes, represented by two squadrons of modernized tactical fighters F-15E "Strike Eagle", recently acquired the ability to use the same long-range air-to-ground missiles JASSM-ER and long adapted to the use of tactical missiles AGM-84H SLAM-ER, equipped with advanced anti-jamming IKGSN, using the correlation method of targeting ATA ("Atomatic Tagerting Acquisition"), characterized by increased noise immunity, which forces to saturate the maximum tank and motorized rifle units of new generation military self-propelled air defense systems and active defense systems, because the "equipment" SLAM-ER provides for the use of BAT sights that are aimed at;
- 2 tactical air wing of the Polish Air Force, consisting of 36 advanced F-16C Block 52 + and 12 two-seat advanced fighters of the same version as the F-16D Block 52 +, deployed simultaneously on 2 airbases (Poznan and Lask); in the first half of the 20-s, these machines will receive the AGN-70B extended-range AGM-158B cruise missiles from the United States Department of Defense for Military Cooperation (DSCA) extended-range military sales (FMS); in January 2017, the first versions of the JASSM with a range of 31 km were delivered to the 370 tactical air base in Poznan.
The above elements of NATO Combat Air Force are not the only components in this massive missile attack on our military, energy and industrial infrastructures. It also considers the deployment of American Arleigh Burke class URO destroyers, “charged” with RGM-109E “Tomahawk Block IV” ammunition, and also Ohio attack submarines - SSGN, equipped with 154 ammunition kits of Tomahawk strategic cruise missiles each. And this is described only by a small part of those air attack weapons that NATO’s Supreme Command can use in the event of an escalation of a regional conflict with Russia, because there is also the German Air Force, armed with the Typhoon multi-purpose fighters equipped with high-precision KEPD 350 cruise missiles TAURUS. The coming attempt of aggression from the North Atlantic alliance is also seen in the "pumping" of the Eastern European conditional theater of operations with ground-based antimissile defense systems for parrying the X-101 and 3М14К / T missiles from the Russian Navy and the Russian space forces.
The most embarrassing moment here is that, for example, the Romanian Ministry of Defense signed with the United States companies Raytheon and Lockheed Martin an 3,9 billion contract for the purchase of 7 antimissile systems Patriot PAC-3 and 168 of MIM-104F interceptor missiles as ammunition. These anti-aircraft guided missiles are equipped with an active radar homing head of the millimeter Ka-band, in connection with which the X-101 cruise missiles that have broken through into the airspace of NATO countries can be intercepted even outside the radio horizon; after all, the acquisition of target designation occurs not only from the battery command and control station, but also from third-party airborne early warning systems via radio link-16. In long-range anti-aircraft missiles 9М82МВ (С-300В4 complex) the implementation of work on over-the-horizon targets with third-party targeting is theoretically possible, but it has not been confirmed in practice, which can be said about the 9М96Е / Е2 missiles of С-XNUM.
HOW KHEL HAAVIR ON THE SYRIAN AIRCRAFT "WALKED" ...
If at the European theater of operations our defensive potential is only just being “probed” during the frequent reconnaissance flights of the “Global Hawks” and the strategic RER RC-135V / W “Rivet Joint” airplanes, giving the VKS command time to take countermeasures, then in the Middle East theater The aerospace forces of Russia and friendly units of the Syrian army are tested for capacity in crisis situations "in full", and not with the help of reconnaissance tools, but with aggressive force methods. One of these incidents is the recent massive missile launch.aviation the Israeli Air Force’s strike (Hel Haavir) against strategically important facilities of the Syrian Arab Army (including the T4 airbase, on which the Iranian UAV air wing was deployed, which at one time took part in the optoelectronic reconnaissance of IS units), Hezbollah units, as well as on the objects of the Corps of Guards of the Islamic Revolution.
This is not the first air strike operation of the Israeli tactical fighters F-16I "Sufa" and F-15I "Ra'am" against the government forces of Syria and the IRGC units deployed to fight the pseudo-caliphate, because in the summer of 2016, during the International Herzliya Conference, The head of Israel's military intelligence, Major General Herzi Halevi, pointed to the indisputable advantages for Tel Aviv from the actions of ISIS in Syria, while any of the most combat-ready Iranian and pro-Iranian forces (IRGC and Hezbollah) only accelerated the fall of the ISIS enclaves. Despite the fact that there were no massive missile strikes on Israeli territory with Fatech-110 and Fatech-313 missiles by the IRGC in Syria, Tel Aviv was the first to resort to and is resorting to the tactics of provocative strikes, and this time seriously miscalculated.
In response to the alleged violation of Israel’s northern air border by an Iranian UAV that was shot down by an Apache attack helicopter Khel Haavir 10 in February, two links of the Sufa F-16I (8) multipurpose fighter jets reached the frontiers of the missile launch on targets in Syria beyond standard sly tactics (using the airspace above the ridges of Anti-Lebanon), and brazenly invading Syrian airspace near Damascus and Palmyra. Obviously, the calculation was made on the fact that the canal of divisional radar tracking and guidance systems of the Buk-М1 / 2Е, С-125 and Pechora-2М, С-200 and Pantsir-С1 systems will be critically overloaded by several dozen launched with F-16I high-precision medium suspension weapons, and the process of “setting up trails of targets - capture” in the literal sense of the word “will fall” against the background of the work of EW complexes installed on “Sufah”. As a result, Israeli pilots had expected complete demoralization calculations Syrian air defense system, expecting that the indicators of radar illumination 9S35M1 / 2, CHP-125M, 5N62V and 1RS2-1E "helmet" instead purposes markers will be visible only antinalozheniya and glare from postanavlivaemyh EW interference fighters. But later it turned out that they were very wrong!
Apparently, feeling that they were masters of the situation in the Syrian sky, the pilots of the Israeli F-16I “Sufa” decided not to adhere to the main rule of air operations of the 21st century over the areas with advanced A2 / AD anti-missile zones - low-altitude flights following the terrain. It is possible that such a decision was made due to fears of falling into the ranges of the Syrian anti-aircraft artillery and MANPADS (the lesson of 20 in November of 1983 of the year was recalled, when Kfir C.2 was intercepted by anti-aircraft artillery complex). This time, the Israelis fully entrusted their fate to the SPJ-40 "Elisra" onboard REP and personal protection complex, the SPS-3000 modern irradiation warning station (SPO), and the PAWS-2 infrared attack missile detection system, which should detect the launch of most types of missiles by radiation from torches burning solid propellant or liquid charges. Naturally, the direction finding range of the launched missile by means of PAWS-2 (photo below) depends mainly on the thrust and radiation of its engine.
Sensors of the detection complex of the attacking Elisra PAWS-2 missiles of the right hemisphere at the South Korean FA-50 UBS
As evidenced by numerous Syrian and Israeli sources, one of the vehicles was intercepted after the completion of the first massive missile-air strike (MRAU). The impact of a powerful high-explosive fragmentation warhead fell on the rear hemisphere of the F-16I (on the overtaking course), at the time of leaving the Syrian airspace (above the Golan). And, relying on numerous photographs of eyewitnesses, which depicted the “burned out” accelerating stages of the 5В27 anti-aircraft missiles and fragments of the 3М9 SAM, the destruction of the fighter was carried out with either the upgraded Pechora-125 C-2 anti-aircraft missile complex “Pechora-XNUMX”, or the complex, or the complex, or the complex of the Pechora-XNUMX anti-aircraft missiles. "Square").
The use of the C-200B is also confirmed, since the central segment of the 5ВХNUMX anti-aircraft missile was also detected on the ground, but the “Sufa” was hit by one of the above-mentioned complexes, as it was able to overcome even more 28 km with a much lower survivability than twin engine in F-100I. The 15В5 anti-aircraft missile is equipped with the most powerful 28-kilogram high-explosive fragmentation warhead with 217-degree 120 expansion angle of damaging elements, which completely riddled the nacelle and the entire F-37000I “Sufa” glider, to convert the Xdumx “Sufa”, to turn out the brass, to go to the’s pilots already in the area of kibbutz Harduf. Obviously, either the 16-kilogram warhead of the 72В5 interceptor missile (Pechora-27 complex) or the 2-kilogram 57H3 anti-aircraft missile 12М3 (military Cube) complex exploded next to the fighter.
An even more interesting detail of what happened in the sky over the western part of the province of Damascus is that the Israeli F-16I was intercepted not at the extreme boundary of the “Pechora” or “Cuba” radii in 15 - 23 km, but at a distance from 8 to 12 km, since the follow-up course (given that the missiles are not so fast: 2М for 3М9 and 2,3М for 5В27) only such a range of destruction could be achieved. Consequently, favorable conditions have developed for the onboard PAWS-2 missile detection complex: the torch of the launching anti-aircraft missile could be detected literally instantly, but the efficiency of the IR sensors left much to be desired. The SPS-3000 radiation warning station, which either failed to notify the F-16I crew of their fighter's capture by means of the Pechora or Kuba radar, demonstrated complete incapacity, or the missile was guided according to an optical-electronic reticle in a passive mode, without giving SPS-3000 the opportunity to entrust the fact of fire work of the complex.
As you can see, there are complex technological problems of the airborne defense complex (BS) of the F-16I Sufa fighters, which led to the crew’s failure to fulfill an advance anti-missile maneuver. Representatives of the Israeli funds tried to carefully circumvent the sharp corners in this situation, saying that the wrong configuration of the use of on-board electronic warfare equipment during the first air strike was to blame. But how could the most technologically advanced and experienced air force in the region allow this to happen? After all, the development of tactics for the breakthrough of air defense weapons at Hel Haavir has been going on since the operation to destroy the Iraqi Ozirak nuclear reactor; Moreover, before the recent operation in Hel Haavir were well aware of the structure and technological qualities of the updated air defense system of Syria. But this is not the most interesting.
During the first massive missile and air strike on military targets in the Syrian Arab Republic, the F-16I “Sufa” Hel Haavir units used at least 26 air-to-surface tactical missiles with an effective reflective surface within 0,05 м2. And, despite the fact that the Elisra SPJ-40 electronic countermeasures complexes onboard the F-16I were probably activated, the Syrian air and missile defenses were able to destroy the 19 of them. Here, all merits can be safely attributed to the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile and artillery complexes covering the “dead zones” of the Pechora and Kvadratov. These systems, equipped not only with X-band 1PC2-1 “Helmet” radars, but also with 10ES1-E infrared and television sight ranges using self-contained optical-electronic modules, can destroy enemy’s high-precision weapons with EPR up to 0,01 - 0,02 square. even in the most complicated jamming installation (when using EW EA-18G “Growler” ew airplanes, etc.). It is not difficult to guess what the F-16I tactical fighters are expecting in a collision with the more formidable C-300В4 type air defense systems.
