CFL ships detected and "destroyed" the enemy using over-the-horizon radar

Combat crews of the over-the-horizon radar “Sunflower” conducted a joint exercise with the crews of the Caspian ships flotilla (CFL), transmits RIA News Post press service of the Southern District.

During the exercise, the calculations of the radar station found a group of surface ships and decked helicopters of the sea aviation. According to confirmed information from scouts of the Caspian flotilla, targets were identified as a conditional adversary,
says release.

It is reported that "the crews of the Dagestan and Tatarstan rocket ships, as well as the Grad Sviyazhsk and Veliky Ustyug small rocket ships, received data on the approaching objects from the Sunflower station and distributed targets for delivering a simultaneous effective missile strike." According to the conditional enemy, electronic launches of the Caliber complex were conducted.

The press service’s reference: The Sunflower Radar Station allows you to automatically, outside the radio horizon, simultaneously or sequentially detect, track and classify up to 300 sea and 100 air objects. One of the main features of the station is an overview, which allows detecting sea surface and air objects both within the line of sight and beyond the horizon line. ”

    the "new" Caspian fleet, which was not suspected, works ... well done.

      well done.

      ZGRLS is our everything, they do not care about stealth technology, do not care about a low-flying target with an envelope around the terrain. Those. all achievements of the Western military doctrine are completely annulled. The container, in general, is actually an SPRN, but it also sees low-flying targets up to 3 thousand kilometers, and the Sunflower is more mobile, quick-ready, quite cheap, sees almost 500 km. Now, in addition to the Pacific coast, it is being installed in the North, and in the Caspian, it is being run to interact with air defense systems, air defense systems and even missile defense belay They are all-weather, in real time, all-seeing devices.

        ZGRLS our all

        The person who participated in the development told me, I don’t know the truth or not.
        That when the US decided to scare and steer the USSR along the wrong path. They came up with several large-scale stuffing, the most famous SDI, but there were ZGRLS. The management gave TK for development.
        Our developers read the literature tossed up and said, "you’ll understand some kind of garbage, and even in English (they were afraid of inaccurate translations and provided the originals)" We will do it ourselves on our own principles. And they did ....

          The very principle of reflection from the ionosphere was discovered and developed by our scientist. In 1946, Soviet scientist and designer Nikolai Kabanov proposed the idea of ​​early (over-horizon) detection of aircraft in the short-wave range at a distance of up to 3000 kilometers. He found that probing beams at a wavelength of 10-100 m are able, reflecting from the ionosphere, to irradiate the target and return along the same path to the radar. But unlike the Container, the Sunflower does not work as a reflection from the ionosphere, but uses the principle of location by a surface beam (diffractive surface propagation). This method, although not for thousands of kilometers, but for 500, but it is more accurate for guidance, because does not depend on the daily and seasonal changes in the ionosphere, although the container's algorithms have achieved deviations in a meter. The container and his mother, the seaside Wave Station, use two principles of trans-horizon location: a surface beam (diffractive surface distribution) in the near zone and a spatial beam (reflected from the ionosphere) in the far zone.

            Well, I generally understand the whole thing in the algorithms for processing the reflected signal, this person is a mathematician. laughing
            By the way, miracles happen here (in algorithms). For example, in the 90s we outlined several fields AT ALL without any research in the field, we simply processed the old seismic in a special way (new algorithms). The old geologists of the classical school did not believe at first, and then looked at the miracle of resurrection ....

    In the Caspian? Whose will it be? Iranian, Azerbaijani, Turkmen or Kazakh?

        Yes, I’m only FOR. There is no worthy enemy yet, but we are already preparing to meet him ... especially since the capabilities of the over-the-horizon radar make it possible to see far, farther off the Caspian

      Most likely these routes took aim
      CA-PORTAL.RU: “Kazakhstan has opened its Caspian ports for the United States, which emphasized the strengthening of relations between the two countries” - Access to the ports of Aktau and Kuryk will allow the United States to use an alternative route for sending goods to Afghanistan bypassing Russia.
      And then there will be the creation of an American naval base in the Caspian.

        Which is very unpleasant for us and Iran ... This is a comparison of the appearance of our or Iranian base on the Big Lakes

        the creation of an American naval base in the Caspian.
        And will they deliver the ships by air or will they start building in Kazakhstan?

          For the rear and sabotage units there will be enough boats. And there are many options for their delivery and even assembly in place.

      I don’t know how missile ships, but small missiles can be withdrawn through canals and into the Black and Baltic Seas. Or make launches from the rivers. It turns out that we cover the half of Europe.

    Here is the "key" phrase: over-the-horizon radar! These "features" will be very useful! Especially considering that Reig .... that is, Trump is tearing into space (US space forces, interceptor satellites, neutron "guns", lasers ....)
    So what to do if the reconnaissance satellites will be disabled? But they didn’t even think about the “vigorous” KR Petrel! There are already a lot of "complaints" in ,, address, "Petrel" regarding its combat use! Well, about the effectiveness of the Kyrgyz Republic, I won’t argue now (!) About the long-range bonbs .... I will offer you the Petrel as a high-altitude (... maybe stratospheric ...), long-term reconnaissance drone; carrier radar, electronic warfare, repeater, KR X-101 / 102, GZUR and ..... (you can add). There are AWACS aircraft .... why not be a "vigorous" AWACS drone? In general, an alternative (help) to crashed space satellites .... A UAV (platform) with a nuclear power plant can "hang" High, Far, Long ...

    The Caspian Flotilla is a slightly vulnerable base with great strike potential. Only with "Caliber" does it get: the Caucasus, Turkey, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Paul - the SA and Egypt, the Eastern Mediterranean, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan. Persian and Omani Gulfs. yes

    The good news, given the fact that our RCC is further and faster. They with their miserable harpoons are unlikely to reach the full force to the distance when harpoons can be launched.
