Military Review

The C-500 complex radar was first shown on television.

The Yenisei radar complex, which will become part of the Z-500 ZRS, was first shown on the Russia-1 channel in the Vesti-Astrakhan news release.




The report says that tests of the newest anti-aircraft complex “Prometheus” passed 28 of March at the Ashuluk training ground (Astrakhan region).

“The MiG-29CMT, MiG-31BM, Su-25CM, Su-35С, Tu-22М3 and C-300, C-400 and Pantsir-S complexes were also involved in the exercise,” commented on the report RIA News.

The involved equipment and weapons worked out the destruction of air and ground targets.

According to the reporter, the Yenisei radar recognizes ballistic missiles “at an altitude of up to 100 kilometers, and its radius of action reaches 600 kilometers”.

However, most of the characteristics of the Prometheus C-500 system, of which the new radar will become a part, are classified. Earlier it was reported on the ability of the C-500 to detect and hit simultaneously "up to ten ballistic supersonic targets flying at a speed of seven kilometers per second."

The newest system is expected to take up combat duty in 2020 year.

    So work on Prometheus is going on regularly ... it pleases. The question is what border the upper near space will be able to control the S-500.

        Not earlier than 20 years, I think ... The S-500 is not a missile defense system, but a complex of anti-space defense systems.
        S-500 “Prometey”, 55R6M “Triumfator-M” - the Russian anti-aircraft missile system (SAM; in the terminology of the developer - the anti-aircraft missile system), which is being developed by JSC Concern EKO Almaz-Antey “as a new generation of anti-aircraft missile systems, in which is supposed to apply the principle of separate solutions to the destruction of ballistic and aerodynamic targets. The main objective of the complex is to combat the combat equipment of medium-range ballistic missiles: it is possible to intercept the ballistic missile defense with a launch range of up to 3500 km, and if necessary, ICBMs on the final section of the trajectory and, within certain limits, on the middle section. From these means of destruction, cover should be provided for individual regions, large cities, industrial facilities, and priority strategic goals. Also among the tasks of the anti-aircraft complex are the destruction of hypersonic cruise missiles, aircraft and UAVs of both conventional high-altitude and hypersonic missiles with a speed of 5 M and higher (born waverider); destruction of low-orbit satellites and space weapons launched from hypersonic aircraft, shock hypersonic UAVs and orbital platforms.

              strategic missile defense is A135,235.
              and this is either a tactical missile defense, or SAM with missile defense elements.
              and the data so far is also vague due to secrecy, a bunch of desa and the data vary in what scale.

                Prometheus, just a purebred complex STRATEGIC PRO. His upper border is smaller than that of Nudol, but the functions of the S-500 are wider.
                Prometheus is also capable of intercepting ICBMs, moreover, in the final section of the trajectory and, within certain limits, in the middle section, and not in the accelerated one, such as THAAD.

                  No, strategic is precisely Series A, while Series C is ABM and tactical ABM.
                  another thing is that according to some parameters of the missiles from C they can approach the missiles of A, but all this classification is just that - strategic is precisely A
                  and the taad is also not a strategic missile defense because it can hit the SD and MD barrels, and in fact it doesn’t work on ICBMs, just like the S-500, there’s more chance.
                  and in the middle section of the S-500, ICBMs will definitely not reach, here even sm-3s are not very reachable, therefore they make sm-3 block2 a and b.

                    and in the middle section of the S-500 there’s definitely not going to be an ICBM,

                    77Н6-Н и 77Н6-Н1 designed to destroy ballistic targets, the speed of which can reach 7 km / s. There is little information about these two missiles. In addition to the speed of intercepted objects, it is known that their warhead is not high-explosive, but kinetic. That is, the destruction of a ballistic missile or multiple warheads is carried out due to a mechanical strike of high power.
                    There are statements by several competent sources that one of these missiles is unified with the missile defense system of the promising missile defense system of the Moscow region A-235 Nudol 53T6M. With a range of 100 km, it is designed for close interception. It has unique dynamics and excellent speed characteristics. Its permissible longitudinal overloads are 210 g, transverse - 90 g, which is an absolute world record.

                      and where is the middle section of the ICBMs?
                      they have the apogee of OT 1 thousand km in height, and even it reaches 3 thousand km in height, and where are you with such an apogee with your S-500?
                      we have C and A, everyone works on a collision course at the final site.
                      on the middle ground, so far, even mattresses can’t, but they bypass our missile defense greatly.

                      All of these missiles hit BR, which attack the area being covered, already on the descent.
                      The American counterpart is THAAD, the Israeli counterpart is Hatz-3.
                      Aegis knows how to intercept the anti-aircraft missile, flying over the complex, in the middle section,
                      and Alaskan batteries — ICBMs in the middle section. Russia does not have such complexes.
                      Both Aegis and Alaska hit with a direct hit - fragments are not enough.

                  No one knows how to overclock. And who will allow it?
                  Prometheus ICBM will not intercept in any way. If only because you need a direct hit. Shards - this is not enough, it will not destroy the warhead, which is “armored.” (The Americans checked this: they blew up the warhead of a missile system near an ICBM warhead). This is a fraction to an elephant. Or we need a nuclear explosion, like the missile defense of the city of Moscow.

      The upper border of the state is determined by the Karman line in accordance with the definition of the International Aviation Federation (FAI), the Karman line is located at an altitude of 100 kilometers above sea level.

      The height was set - 100 km.
      According to the reporter, the Yenisei radar recognizes ballistic missiles “at an altitude of up to 100 kilometers, and its radius of action reaches 600 kilometers”.

      But, in my opinion, this is completely insufficient. And the source itself - "according to the reporter" raises some doubts. The complex must hit missiles at least 150 km in height, but it is necessary to detect earlier. Only, perhaps, for this, funds will be used that are not part of the S-500 air defense system itself. hi

        In terms of height, very contradictory figures are called, from 100 km to 250 km ... moreover, it must be borne in mind that our developers, as a rule, underestimate the characteristics for general use. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle, perhaps around 200 km.

        I would like 150 km. The current generation of detection tools - with an EPR of 1 sq.m. a range of 500 km at high altitudes without interference, on average, and a BG of 0,01 square meters, a hundred times less.
        When we can build locators as partners on platforms, well, like the ones that they carry along Alaska, then it makes sense to make rockets with a range of more than 100 to defeat in the middle section.
        (The detection range of the primary locator is directly proportional to the root of the 4th degree of EPR)
        Zra spears break, 100-200 ...

          Too lazy to consider, the detection range of the BG will be 3 times less, i.e. 150. Plus decision time. 100 km at the moment with a head. And about the method of defeat - cermet, which is faced with a cone, does not take a tungsten ball (density is high, but fragile).
