C-300В1 in Ukrainian hands are extremely dangerous for the Russian videoconferencing system even without the “main gauge”
A huge shaft of reader comments spawned information about the restoration for the ground forces, and, possibly, for the air forces of Ukraine of the universal C-300В1 air defense missile-missile systems for the formation of powerful "anti-missile umbrellas" covering the network large groups of land forces, as well as strategic industrial and administrative facilities, from strikes of high-precision air attack weapons (including large cruise missiles alnosti, aeroballistic missiles, tactical ballistic missiles and medium-range ballistic missiles).
Against the background of the carte blanche provided by Washington for the implementation of the next escalation scenario in the Donbass theater, including the possibility of being drawn into the conflict of Russia at the same time “pressured” by the new sanctions package, this information cannot cause a barrage of surprise. After all, in order to cover up the 36 th OBMP, as well as the 28 th and 93 th separate mechanized brigades preparing for aggressive actions against the LDNR, the General Headquarters of the Supreme Soviet decided to deploy at least one anti-aircraft missile division C-300PS more than one and a half years ago (Later, referring to the data of intelligence intelligence of the DPR, the number of “300th” ZRDN near Mariupol increased to three).
Today, when the so-called truce of peace finally confirmed its complete inefficiency, when more than a hundred 14- and 82-mm shells were fired on Sakhanka and Leninsky in the evening of August 120, and finally, when the head of the army division aviation “United Forces” Muhammad Bulanbayev publicly announces that the Ukrainian Su-25 and Mi-24 crews have worked out low-altitude overcoming of enemy air defense to strike surface targets in the Sea of Azov, it becomes clear that the crazy actions of Kiev may not be limited to air shock alone. It is logical to assume that due to the presence in the air force of the “standard” standard modifications of fighter aircraft gaining dominance in the air, the Su-27 and multipurpose MiG-29A fighters (equipped with outdated radar N001 with Cassegrain AR and H019 Rubin with slotted AR), not adapted for use though It would be medium-range air-launched missiles RVV-AE, all the tasks of covering the operation of Ukrainian Su-25 attack aircraft and Mi-24 attack and transport helicopters over the Sea of Azov are planned to be assigned to the ground component of air defense, which al and planned to add the restored S-300V1 "Antey-300V1." But what are these complexes capable of, given the information present in the Ukrainian media?
Based on the data from the Ukrainian news portal mil.in.ua, published on November 4 on 2017, we can say that tests of some of the individual recovered elements of C-300В1 were carried out during last year's field tests of the C-300PS air defense system in the Kherson region. In particular, in one of the photographs presented by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, a lifting mast device with a radar of continuous illumination of the X-band target mounted on a self-propelled launcher 9А83 (by coincidence of circumstances, the mast with the radar of the C-300ВХNUMX complex illumination appeared in the background) was captured , for the 1P5С launcher of the C-85PS anti-aircraft missile system). Almost a year later, on July 300, 17, during a visit by Alexander Turchinov, the illegally elected secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, Oleksandr Turchinov, the Vizar state enterprise (the Vuar engineering plant of Zhulyansky), engaged in the restoration and testing of the Ukrainian C-2018B300 radio equipment, correspondents of local The media managed to take a photograph of the 1М9 anti-aircraft guided medium-range missile on a workshop transport trolley.
A couple of weeks later, in preparation for the military parade in honor of the so-called Independence Day of Ukraine, three tracked self-propelled 9А83 launchers using 9М83 anti-aircraft missiles again appeared in the convoy. Apparently, the specialists of Vizar managed to bring to mind only the “short-range asset” of the C-300В1 systems, while the “main caliber” (“long-range active”), represented by more high-speed and long-range “energy” interceptor missiles 9М82, failed to recover yet. What does this mean?
First of all, that the range of the Ukrainian C-300B1 will not be 100 km, but 72 km (this is precisely the interception range provided by the 9М83 SAM equipped with a less powerful starting level). Secondly, the worst opportunities to destroy high-speed targets are at a distance of more than 30 km, since the maximum flight speed of the 9М83 SAM includes only 4320 km / h, while 9М82 accelerates to a hypersonic speed in 6120 km / h, due to which the kinetic energy reserve its march stage is significantly higher, and it takes 30% more time for aerodynamic drag and critical speed reduction. Thirdly, due to the lower flight speed, the efficiency of the 9М83 combat stage aerodynamics at altitudes above 25000 m is reduced to unsatisfactory performance, while the 5,8 flywheel stage 9М82 rocket engines retain their efficiency at 35 km altitude. And finally, fourthly, without the 9М82 interceptor missiles in ammunition, the С-300В1 complexes are almost impossible to intercept medium-range ballistic missiles, because initially these products were developed by specialists of the State Design Bureau of Compressor Engineering and the Novator Design Bureau for destruction of ballistic missiles Pershing-1A / B medium-range missiles. As you can see, in the absence of 9М82 missiles, the C-300В1 anti-aircraft missile system has a lot of various disadvantages.
Meanwhile, the authors of pseudo-analytical articles on such resources as www.dialog.ua and inosmi.ru have already managed to surprise the media space with “pearls” of technical awareness, such as “giving Ukrainian C-300B1 the ability to intercept Russian operational tactical ballistic missiles 9М723-1 "Iskander-M", which can not be a priori, because the maximum constructive overload of anti-aircraft guided missiles 9М83 when performing a maneuver can reach as little as 20 units., While "Iskander" maneuvers with overloads th in 30 units. that requires interceptor 60-70-fold overload.
We do not advise our reviewers to linger over the fact that the C-300В1 anti-aircraft missile systems fell into the hands of Ukrainian military formations with inadequate command, supervised by an absolutely unpredictable pro-American leadership, because the solid set of C-300BX1 combat qualities is also maintained when using the “near asset”. Interceptor 9М83. The fact is that the Ukrainian C-300B1 still have a staff of high-performance radar detection, tracking and guidance based on passive phased antenna arrays, which during the repair could not only be spared the effects of prolonged downtime (oxidation of metal radio engineering materials of radio components and contacts), but also to get new modules for the conversion of the radar signal reflected from the target, which will have a beneficial effect on the noise immunity, and therefore, the the effectiveness of hitting a target in a difficult noise situation.
In the “Square”, these works are carried out by the specialized enterprise “Aerotekhnika-MLT”, whose specialists were able just a few years ago to create the upgraded C-125-2D Pechora-2D anti-aircraft missile system. This complex received a fundamentally new command and control unit UNK-2D with an information field based on modern computerized automated workplaces of operators (to launch a missile system, just click the mouse, and high-resolution LCD indicators provide more accurate and “digestible” information about tactical air conditions). The new antenna tracking and guidance post UNV-2D is equipped with a modern microprocessor control module for antennas in azimuth and elevation, and also received a new digital modulator of a magnetron transmitter for sensing a target. Such devices could also be integrated into the 9C32М radar guidance element base, the high-potential radar of the 9C19М2 “Ginger” program review (designed to work with aerodynamic and ballistic targets in a difficult jamming environment), as well as all mast radars, the target radiance radiation value for continuous radiation, continuous radiation, continuous radiation, and continuous radiation, which can also be used for radionuclides 9A83. It is important to mention here the brazen sale of the C-300 serial system to the Pentagon in the 90-s. For more than two decades, Raytheon's specialists could certainly develop a lot of modernization options for Antey, and then transfer them to the headquarters of the Ukrainian Aerotechnika-MLT.
Yet the well-known merits of the C-300B1 persist to this day, falling into the hands of the APU. Firstly, we are talking about the maximum speed of the target being hit in 3000 m / s = 10800 km / h (for Ukrainian C-300PS, this is just 1300 m / s = 4700 km / h). "Iskander" he, of course, will not be able to amaze because of the low maneuverability of the 9М83 interceptor missiles, but he will fully cope with such elements of high-speed high-precision weapons, as the 4,5 multi-purpose fly-missile X-32, launched from the Tu-22М3, the operational-tactical ballistic missile “Tochka-U”, or the 300-mm rocket launchers of the RSMO “Smerch” (the latter version only under certain conditions).
Also, the С-300В1 complex can pose a huge threat to the Russian tactical aviation covering the patrol boats of the Coast Guard of the FSB Coast Guard Service in the area of the Sea of Azov at the time of the aggravation of the situation in the Donbas and throughout the Azov region. In this situation, the Khibiny container complex, located on Su-30CM or Su-34 suspensions, can improve the situation, but it may not provide 100% protection, because C-300В1, as we mentioned above, has radar software review "Ginger", designed to level the interference effects from the enemy. Secondly, it is a small effective reflecting surface of the target that is hit, which is about 0,05 square. m, which means that the C-300B1 will be able to shoot down unobtrusive strategic cruise missiles of various types (including 3М14К / Kaliber-PL / NK) and all known anti-radar missiles that are in service with the Russian VKS. Thirdly, according to Ukrainian sources, each Ukrainian C-300В1 division has 3 multifunctional 9С32М guidance radars that can transmit target coordinates for highlighting 12А9 self-propelled PUs equipped with “radar searchlights” directly to 83.
In this case, to disable the system, it is not enough to destroy only one 9-XNNXXМ guidance radar. To do this, it will be necessary to destroy all three radars of this type, as well as the programmed Ginger radar, which during the battle may include radiation alternately or in a chaotic order, as well as change the location of the dislocation to make it difficult to calculate positions. Therefore, as you have already guessed, it will take several times more time and Iskander or Dagger missiles to defeat even one Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile division C-32В300 than in the case of the C-1PS complex, depending on the performance of only one 300X30E radar . Moreover, additional exploration of 6-XNNXX radar-replacing radars will require a systematic approach using Tu-9P radar reconnaissance aircraft. Such realities are prepared for us by the supply of "Anteyev" to Ukrainian troops.
