S-300PS air defense missile defense system preparing to take up combat duty in Tajikistan

The calculations of the S-300PS anti-aircraft missile systems deployed on the territory of the Russian military base in Tajikistan will be put on pilot combat duty from December 1 of this year. This was stated by the commander of the troops of the Central Military District (CVO) Alexander Lapin. The statement is cited by the county press service.

According to the commander, at present the equipment of the positional area is being made to accommodate the equipment of the anti-aircraft system, the work is planned to be completed by the end of November. The interruption of the calculations of the S-300PS on experimental combat duty is scheduled for December 1.



The anti-aircraft missile battalion, armed with C-300PS systems, will take up combat-pilot duty on December 1. Currently, work is ongoing on the arrangement of a positional area for the placement of equipment, which is planned to be completed before the end of November

- said Lapin.

As previously reported, on October 26 this year, the S-300PS divisional air defense system kit delivered to one of the military arsenals of the Central Military District was delivered to Tajikistan by rail. The division has about 30 pieces of equipment, including, in addition to launchers, a command post, a radar, guidance systems and support vehicles.

The main task of the division is to cover the 201-th Russian military base from air attacks, as well as the air defense of the Central Asian collective security region in conjunction with the air defense of Tajikistan.

The S-300PS air defense system defeats modern and promising aircraft, cruise missiles, ballistic and other targets flying at speeds up to 1200 m / s in the area up to 75 (90) km in range at altitudes from 25 m to the practical ceiling of their combat use, in conditions of massive raid, in a difficult tactical and interference environment. The system is weatherproof and can be operated in various climatic zones. It is a self-propelled version of the anti-aircraft missile system of the C-300P system, delivered to the troops from 1983 of the year. NATO's code designation is SA-10B Grumble.

        Do Afghans have no aviation at all? And didn’t India recently deliver helicopters to them? And they are definitely not jihadists all ...

      Was it really impossible to upgrade to the PM-2 version? After all, the process has been worked out (most of the SS complexes on duty in the Russian Federation have been brought to this level), and it is inexpensive. We installed a complex of more than 30 years of freshness, which does not correspond to modern realities in all respects and does not cover the range of destruction not only of the PRLR, but also of the planning small air bombs GBU-39 and others like them. The Taliban and ISIS have no aviation, they have "friendship forever" with China, and the coalition planes in Afghanistan will not scare them.
      Doubtful efficiency, incomprehensible savings. Stupid window dressing.

        You are mistaken, this is not possible. No. Up to the level of C-300PM2, the few C-300PMs built before 1996 were modernized. Until recently, C-300PS were the most massive systems in our air defense.
        S-300PS and S-300PM differ not only in missiles, but also in hardware. Talking about the "modernization" of the S-300PS to the level of the S-300PM (PM-2) is also like claiming that the VAZ-2106 can be "upgraded" to the VAZ-2110.
        The maximum that can be taken from the S-300PS air defense system for new or modernized systems is wheeled tractors. Given the fact that SPU, hardware and guidance stations for the most part carry databases in stationary positions, the mileage and wear of the undercarriage are usually not large.

          Sergei hi
          If I am not mistaken, the PM version was created on the basis of the PMU, which is the export version of the PS.
          Here is even an article from VO https://topwar.ru/91567-zrs-s-300p-v-xxi-veke.html
          In any case, the tube hardware must be changed. Integrating rockets with updated equipment will no longer be so difficult. At least for systems in storage.

            You are mistaken. С-300ПМУ differed from С-300ПС by the reduced number of guidance channels, simplified equipment of the control cabin and state identification system and towed launchers (as on С-300ПТ). In the S-300PM air defense system, other, more long-range missiles with a different guidance principle were used.

            S-300PT and later "self-propelled" S-300PS from the very beginning were mainly built on solid element base.

            It’s easier to build new systems. Another example: in the 70 years, they quickly wrote off the SA-75M 10-cm air defense systems after the troops had saturated the 6-cm S-75M / M2 air defense systems.

              In my opinion, the systems in storage still need to be kept up to date. Then it will be possible, as they saturate with modern air defense, to offer those who cannot afford the C-400. This is better than junk.

                Alexey, some time ago I had a review of the CSTO air defense. For reasons beyond my control, it was not possible to finish it. But there the topic of repair and "minor" modernization of the S-300PS is considered in sufficient detail. The maximum that the S-300PS underwent was overhaul and "minor" modernization (updating of communications and automation). Now the Russian Aerospace Forces is actively decommissioning the S-300PS. We must understand that it is pointless to modernize the systems built 30 years ago. In addition, the 5V55R missiles have long worked out all conceivable service life, and their serial production was discontinued about 20 years ago. As for the "scrap", we have mercilessly destroyed fairly fresh C-125M1, which could really be upgraded.

                  It's a pity. And there are a lot of potential foreign customers.
                  In addition, the 5V55R missiles have long worked out all conceivable operating lives, and their mass production was discontinued about 20 years ago.

                  The Czechs did a good job at the Aspide-2000 "Square". You also wrote about this. There are no desperate situations.
                  As for the "scrap", we have mercilessly destroyed fairly fresh C-125M1, which could really be upgraded.

                  Yes, I heard. Now African air defense with S-125 Ukraine is modernizing. I believe that these orders were not redundant to us either.

        Based on the modification and configuration, I dare to assume that the complex will be transferred to the Tajiks over time. They are beggars, but the Uzbek neighbors are envious, with whom they are not going smoothly. And the Uzbeks, along with the Turkmens, recently acquired Chinese counterparts of the S-300 (FD-2000) and showed it during exercises. No pity. And the situation doesn’t seem to be heating up.

          hi Aleksey soldier
          With our allies, former compatriots had to "work" in those days .... all the rules, quite literate guys were and with the service they have all the rules.
          Now it is not necessary to contact them, but I think they have a competent contingent.
          In general, the rule - Tell me who your friend is .... - is relevant now and always.

            The main thing is not to give up and not lose hope. There was a huge Great country where everyone lived more or less amicably. It is possible, without special costs, but wisely, to be good neighborly. Even if the “partners” did everything to settle us in the “huts on the edge” and finish off one by one. And there, you see, we will disappoint them more than once.
