In "Almaz-Anthea" talked about the difficulties with the new AAMS C-500

Prometheus’s Russian anti-aircraft missile system C-500 will outperform American THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense), but its tests “do not do without objective difficulties,” said Designer General, Deputy Director General of the concern. Almaz-Antey »Pavel Sozinov.


We carried out most of the tests of previous generation systems in this class using landfills that are now in the territories of neighboring states, and the inconvenience that arose did not disappear even today.
- noted the developer.

In "Almaz-Anthea" talked about the difficulties with the new AAMS C-500


According to him, “C-500 ZRS is classified as the fifth generation system, and it will solve, among other things, anti-missile defense (ABM) tasks”.

We strive to significantly surpass, by many characteristics, the achievements that have been implemented by the Americans in the mobile anti-missile system THAAD
- said the developer.

Compared to the existing C-400, the new system “will be completely different structurally and technically, will have new location and computing facilities, new anti-aircraft guided missiles,” explained Sozinov.

Another important point - and this is a global trend - the basic modes of operation in the C-500 SAMs will be automatic. That is, the intervention of a human operator during combat operations is assumed, but the basic mode of all C-500 facilities separately, and of the system as a whole, is automatic.
- said the designer.

          Not funny. The characteristics of the complex are such that the existing landfills do not allow it to be tested at extreme conditions. And this does not allow to identify and correct subtle points. This is what we are talking about.

          Well, then the work is underway, and there have always been difficulties.
          As for polygons - this is of course an exaggeration.
          The Americans decided this maneuver at the stage of acceleration, reduce speed and range.

      You did not pay attention to one moment - the S-500 is already being tested and the adoption of this complex is a matter of the near future. And if you take into account all the statements of GDP at the Meeting, then I would not be surprised if by the year 20, the S-500 will go into series.

      The dimensions of this training ground do not allow five hundredths to be fully tested. It has a combat radius of 500 km horizontally and 100-300 km in height depending on the rocket. Now take a map and look at the size of the Kapustin Yar. They should be tested as strategic. Launched in one training ground and debris fell on the other, flying 1/8 of the country if from north to south and 1/20 if from west to east. Too much for one landfill.

          The lack of space for such a training ground in Ukraine led to the erroneous defeat of a civilian aircraft over the Black Sea on October 4, 2001. Now put the route maps of civilian flights on the map of the country and try to find guaranteed free zones.

            The erroneous defeat of the Russian civilian aircraft over the Black Sea was caused not by the lack of space, but by the lack of combat training of the Ukrainian air defense calculations. Moreover, all modern ground-to-air missiles (even MANPADS) have a friend-or-foe identification module. Who needs to be, in our time, to bring down something other than the goal?

        Shhh !!! ))) According to the data that you are voicing, it turns out that they are testing a medium-range missile) But the Russian Federation fulfills the RSDM agreement on this, this cannot be)

        Sary-Shagan polygon (Balkhash) is located in Kazakhstan. That's about the problems with the former Soviet republics in the article and write. Apparently the Kazakhs are slowly squeezing us out of there. And Kapustin Yar is offered here as an alternative.

    The problem is significant, since this system must be super secret by definition. The landfill in the Kazakh steppe is an ideal place for testing, but given the rapprochement between the leadership of Kazakhstan and the United States, etc., top-secret is clearly at risk.

      Judging by the statement of the general director of the Almaz-Antey concern, everything rests on the training ground (not a word about other problems). Everything else depends on the level of imagination of the local "experts".

    We used to test it in Cap-Yar, but there the range doesn’t allow you to intercept further than 100 km. To test the maximum capabilities in combat conditions, you need to launch the target from afar. Do we have many testing ranges for missiles with dimensions of at least 500 * 500 km? fall on settlements or some other objects. Kazakhs will have a s-500 test, but you need to get a number of permissions for each test, because launching targets from Cap-yar does. It’s not so easy to launch a ballistic missile into the territory of another country. In fact, only 1-2 launches per year can be carried out. That's slow.

      Air defense work on the sea is different from land work. As a rule, a rocket is first taught to fly above the ground, and then adapted to the sea.

    This is a partial disclosure of the concept - on new principles.
    With the disclosure of automation, we might not have bothered, and so we guess, but we can predict the future, for example:
    1. You can’t defeat a hypersonic head with any anti-ballistic missile; you need a field through which missiles and just shells, even scrap, will be neutralized, and people must survive or not be allowed into such zones.
    2. The laser is good, silent and fast. It is not known how powerful and range, it is one thing to use in a vacuum, and another in a gas or water environment.
    - When there will be flying saucers or carpets, planes, without quotes, is a very serious question in the continuation of the development of new principles.

    The S-400 did not shoot down ballistic targets in Kazakhstan, so there were no problems with this. And so the main tests were carried out on the Cap Yare. In my opinion, the S-400 ballistic targets at 40 km (too lazy to google) can only be shot down, Kap-yar is allows.
