The best EW tools in the world: Russia has long overtaken the United States


It is difficult to imagine modern military operations without electronic warfare. Russia confidently holds the first place in the list of countries with the best electronic warfare systems. This is recognized even in the United States.


"Krasuha"


Currently, electronic warfare systems are in service with all types of armed forces of the Russian Federation. In 2012, the Krasukha-2 electronic warfare systems entered service, and a bit later, the Krasukha-4 complexes. The station’s capabilities make it possible to counteract all modern radar systems and enemy UAV control radio channels. At the same time, the stations operate at an impressive distance: for example, Krasukha-4 covers an area of ​​up to 300 km.

The use of the Krasukha-4 system in Syria during the defense of the Russian Khmeimim airbase forced the retired American general, Don Bacon, who is considered one of the world's leading electronic warfare specialists, to acknowledge the Americans’ lag behind the Russians in terms of electronic warfare systems.

The latest electronic warfare systems, according to General Bacon, do not allow the American armed forces to use their systems against Russian air defense. The presence in Russia of such electronic warfare systems as Krasukha-4 forced the American leadership to accelerate the decision to develop the latest unmanned aerial vehicles. 6 billion dollars have already been spent, but so far the Americans have failed to overcome the capabilities of the Russian electronic warfare systems.


The priority of Russian electronic warfare systems is recognized by Alan Schaffer, another authoritative weapons specialist. He believes that the secret to the effectiveness of Russian electronic warfare is that, unlike the United States and NATO, the Russian defense industry has never stopped developing new electronic warfare systems. And Russia has long overtaken the United States in terms of developing electronic warfare systems.

Divnomorye and Samarkand


In 2018, the operation of the latest EW Divnomorye complex began. It was developed by the same All-Russian Research Institute Gradient in Rostov-on-Don as Krasukha, only capable of operating for several hundred kilometers, closing command posts and military facilities with its "umbrella". At the same time, “Divnomorye” unfolds in a fighting position in a matter of minutes. According to the plans of the developers, Divnomorye will replace the Krasuha, Krasukha-2, and Krasukha-4 electronic warfare systems in the troops.


Virtually nothing is known about another newest complex of electronic warfare Samarkand, which is deployed in the strategic western direction and at the facilities of the North fleet The Russian Navy.

Murmansk-BN


In 2014, the armed forces received another newest complex of electronic warfare - “Murmansk-BN”. It is designed for radio reconnaissance, intercepting and suppressing enemy signals at a distance of up to 500 km and is used by coastal units of the Russian Navy. In 2014, the complex entered service with the Northern Fleet, in 2017 - the Black Sea, and at the end of 2018 arrived at the Baltic Sea.


The system is mounted on 7 KamAZ vehicles, deployed in 72 light hours and mounted on 4 telescopic supports up to 32 meters high.

American EW Tools


The significant lag behind Russia in terms of technologies and electronic warfare, as noted above, is recognized by American specialists themselves. The reason for this is the lack of the latest developments in the 1990s - 2000s. Therefore, the U.S. Army mainly uses AN / ULQ-19 (V) signal jamming systems. They were developed back in the 1980s and are in service with several units that are part of the Marine Corps.

There are no EW systems in the US ground forces, and the armed forces command focuses on the development of EW aviation systems, in particular the EA-18 Growler or Compass Call EC-130H US Air Force systems. It is believed that the F-35 can be used not only as a fighter, but also as an electronic warfare aircraft.

China caught up and overtook America?


Very little is known about electronic warfare systems in service with the People's Liberation Army of China. But the fact is that the PLA considers electronic warfare to be one of the most important and promising areas and pays great attention to the development of electronic warfare technologies, carefully adopting Russian experience. Not so long ago, China merged electronic warfare troops, space troops and cyber troops into the Strategic Support Force.

The Chinese press highly appreciates the potential of Russian electronic warfare systems, as does the American one, putting Russia first among countries with the most advanced electronic warfare systems in the world.

      Of course, it’s also sometimes funny for me from this set of words, but our EW systems as well as air defense are indeed some of the best.

        The advantage of electronic warfare systems is that their work is invisible to the eye, and you can tell without any hesitation how powerful they are and how they surpass anything. You can not even be shy about the lack of a competitive electronic industry, relying on the traditional savvy.

          And it works both ways.

          The author writes how good everything is. And D. Bacon mentioned in the article comes to Congress and says how bad everything is (he spoke two years ago). Give a trillion - continues Bacon - I will do it right (not a joke, I asked so much).

        Questions to the apologists of the slogan "Russia is the homeland of elephants" (the best electronic warfare systems):
        1) is the domestic electronic warfare system integrated into the domestic automated control system?
        2) is there, in general, a domestic capable ACS TK, covering a significant part of the compounds and parts?
        3) do we have modern and / or at least serviceable electronic warfare systems in each connection?

        Note: the presence of single, even “unparalleled” complexes does not play a special role. It matters the presence of a massive modern and efficient system.

        Answers to questions are not particularly required. The questions are rhetorical and contain implicit answers.

    All the same, electronic warfare is an element of passive defense, basically. You can arrange an unexpected man in the enemy’s area of ​​responsibility, but the penetration depth is not so great, without moving mobile systems closer to his orders.

            Let's leave your "familiarity." I have no desire to talk with you on "you."
            Tell, tell the public about the miracles of courage of the American military. Tell us how they “gained courage” and dared to open machine gun fire at civilians (unarmed) in Iraq and even from a helicopter:

            And here they are “brave” on the armored vehicles in the city, where from the “resistance forces” there are only cars:

            I hope we won’t specify how they bravely launched rocket attacks in Syria, striking out militants, civilians, and children ... And why?
            And are you here on the site trying to mutter something? So come along with the American special forces to the competition ... Or shoot from the vaunted "Abrams" at the biathlon ...

    In the USA, electronic warfare is a type of enemy defeat. As they say, feel the difference.
    When developing an operation, it is planned to fire, artillery, aviation, etc. At the same time, we have one of the types of support for electronic warfare, and the Americans are planning an electronic defeat of the enemy.
    They have the means and strength for this.

    A colleague who served in the RT troops (EW company) in 1968 in Czechoslovakia, on the border with Germany, told.
    The morning after the entry of our troops. A cloud of NATO helicopters flies in our direction on a survey locator from the FRG side. We all tensed hard, imagining what would happen to us if the turntables fired at us. Our letechi could not stand the nerves and he ordered: "Give high to the transmitters in the direction of the Nazis." Well, we did. Helicopters began to pile up, fly in different directions, the system crumbled. At this time, the phone rang from the headquarters: "So your move, immediately turn off the high, otherwise they will EVERYTHING there, and answer us." After this imitation (?), Attacks in our direction were no more.

    EW, this is certainly good, but not a panacea. In 9 cases out of 10, the entire operation of electronic warfare systems is reduced to jamming at certain frequencies. But to drown out all sources of electromagnetic radiation is impossible. And the large range of the complexes only means that they work most likely in the currently unused HF band.
