"Shell-S1" increased TTX

14
In an interview with the departmental newspaper of the Ministry of Defense "A red star" General Victor Gumenny, commander of the air defense missile defense forces, said that Russian specialists had carried out an important revision of the Pantsir-S1 air defense missile system. The general noted that the refinement of the performance of the complex was carried out on the basis of the operation in the Syrian Arab Republic.


"Shell-S1" increased TTX


Victor Humenny:
A striking example of the successful work of our defense industry to account for the experience of hostilities in Syria is the refinement of the Pantsir complex. As a result, the complex was able to destroy not only planes and drones, but also rocketsthat terrorists periodically attempted to fire at Hmeymim airbase.


According to the general, other newest Russian weapons systems were also refined on the basis of work in Syria. It was noted that as a result of activities carried out by specialists in the sphere of the military-industrial complex, the reliability of the systems increased by at least 15%. We can talk, in particular, about improving the characteristics of the target detection range.

Recall that the ZRPK "Pantsir-S1" in Syria is used to protect the airbase "Khmeymim" in the province of Latakia. Earlier, militants attacked the air base several times using various means, one of which was drones. It was on the basis of the analysis of these data that the "Shell" was completed.

    I wonder how they increased, increased the rate of fire of guns, and the range of target search? If so, that’s good!

      But we don’t care how and how? The main thing is that it would work.

        Maybe new, more long-range missiles were mounted on it! And taking into account the large dispersion of shells when firing from cannons, it was precisely automatic machines that needed to be finished! !!

          Only a real test will show .... better not, but it should be ready!

          Long-range missiles already exist ... the range of both target detection and the range of missiles has been increased from 20 km to 40 km.
          Since February of this year, the security of the main base of the Pacific Fleet, Vladivostok, has been ensured by the calculations of the new Pantsir-S2 air defense missile system. We are talking about the continuation of the well-proven series of anti-aircraft missile and cannon systems that can put up effective protection against the widest range of air attack weapons - from unmanned aerial vehicles to cruise missiles.

          The updated complex differs from the previous “Shell” modification in the presence of a radar with improved characteristics and expanded missile nomenclature. A dual-band, three-coordinate radar tracking target and missiles reveals and escorts aerial objects across the horizon, detecting them at a distance of 36 kilometers. Given the reaction time - up to six seconds, as well as the target’s flight speed - up to a kilometer per second, the object will be guaranteed to be destroyed immediately after it enters the zone of destruction of weapons systems.

          The reliability of the "Shell" is evidenced by such a fact. During the testing of locators in production, these devices are placed on a special stand, where they are exposed to powerful vibration for a long time. In fact, the conditions of use and transportation are simulated. In addition, climate tests are mandatory: equipment is checked in special chambers, where the temperature regime is created from minus 50 to plus 60 degrees. Each locator is kept in such a chamber for several days, during which a study of the characteristics of the equipment is carried out.

          Calculations ZRPK "Shell-C2" is entrusted today to carry out combat duty at the Khmeimim airbase, covering, together with the S-400, the Russian airborne forces operating in Syria. By the way, the highlight of the complex is the possibility of its use both for air targets (aircraft, helicopters, remotely piloted aircraft and high-precision weapons), and for mobile ground targets.

            At the Pacific Fleet there is the Armor-C2 division as part of the S-400 air defense system, but in Kamchatka and not in Vladik.

      I wonder how they raised

      hi The main improvement that the anti-aircraft complex underwent was the installation of a new multifunctional aiming station. Thanks to this refinement, the range of destruction of targets of the complexes increased from 20 to 40 kilometers. Earlier, in January, the media reported that the Tula Instrument Design Bureau JSC, with the direct participation of the Ministry of Defense, taking into account the experience of military operations in Syria, developed a new small-sized ammunition for the Pantsir-M and Pantsir-SM air defense systems. A promising anti-aircraft guided missile (SAM) is designed to deal with “kamikaze drones” - it has miniature dimensions and increased maneuverability, thanks to which it has already received the nickname “military” among the military. Currently, the ammunition is being tested, after the completion of which should go into service soldier

      Yes, hardly! Rather, there is a "burp" of the former "news": the development of "small-caliber" missiles ... the so-called "nails" ...
      And the development of "extended range" missiles ..... this is for the "Shell" SM!

    What can I say?
    The machine is tested in real battle. She proved herself very worthy.
    Surely some jambs got out. Well, the manufacturers at the base sat without a hitch. Something had to sit out?
    The same S-400 and S-300V, fortunately, have not yet entered the battle, but I think that the years of work in combat modes also revealed a lot.
    Again the climate. Dust.

      True, it’s better not to bring big missiles!
      But it looks like Syria’s air defense will have to be fully restored and it has work to do, there will be more!

    For some reason, I thought that in all ZPKs it is dispersion that is specifically “hammered” into the combat algorithm, and it’s just like ...

    Today, the main shortcomings of the "Shell" are the large "dead zone" in the upper hemisphere and the discrepancy with the declared characteristics when working on maneuvering targets. There’s a lot of little things, otherwise it doesn’t. The experience of real combat use allows designers to improve systems. Good luck to them in this difficult matter!
