“Still Can Fight”: Analysts Find Shell-C1 with Damaged Radar

43

A few days ago, an image of the combat vehicle of the Pantsir-S1E air defense complex appeared in the information space. Analysts spotted traces of damage on it, however, without making hasty statements about receiving military "injuries."


The product was purchased by the UAE and transferred to the disposal of the Libyan National Army (commanded by Khalifa Haftar). Currently, the combat vehicle continues to operate on the territory of a country torn by civil war.

The publication Defense Arabic, having received images of the "Shell", drew attention to one detail, talking about its damage. An unclear image shows a significant deformation of the 1RS1-1E radar.

She is responsible for detecting targets in the decimeter range. As the newspaper notes, it is not a fact that this damage was received as a result of the enemy’s attempts to suppress the air defense means of the flare aircraft or other attacks. It could be caused by an accident or a technical malfunction.

It is indicated that if the radar is inoperative, this does not mean the loss of combat capabilities by the anti-aircraft missile-gun complex: it can still fight based on the radars of other air defense systems that are in conjunction with it.

Defense Arabic, based on other details of the image, believes that the damaged Shell is located in Garyan (northwest of the country).

      Well, that’s the meaning of a well-designed and high-quality weapon and consists in continuing to carry out the tasks with a certain percentage of damage. In this case, by building into the network

        Well done, you can do without a radar! For this, the "Pantsir" has an optical-electronic system! yes If only the "transmitter" works!

    Yes, the turmoil continues in Libya. Generally disgusting, the country was simply destroyed by democratizers. It was a normal, even prosperous country. But she was subjected to foreign intervention, and then plunged into a civil war, and now the Libyans slurp a full spoon. You can only sympathize ...

      The topic of the article is not a historical escort and not an expression of sympathy, but a discussion of the damage to Shell-S.
      Can you say something about the nature of the damage to the Shell radar?

      What will amaze you is the belief "young and old" that the Americans will come, help, life will become better, democracy! And after all, what is the country? For many decades, democracy has been handed out according to the same template. No, it's all one, liberators! Together with the European allies, carriers of the democratic infection; drug addiction, pornography, debauchery ...

      Even more disgusting is the fact that we also had a hand in this. In the face of a LADY .... ugh! I still remember the video, when he was shown footage where Gaddafi was torn to pieces. The bourgeois showed at some meeting over the hill. And he still had the conscience to tell them something like "... well, finally good news" ... This is a shame that will be very difficult for our country to wash off ...

      Do you condemn, then? But does someone act differently? Now I do not mean neutral countries or dummy countries. The only difference is that we supply our weapons, directly or through intermediaries, while "civilized" countries supply weapons of someone else's production, and also through third countries.

      ???? What a gratuitous. The car in the photo belongs to the UAE. The UAE paid not only for cars, but actually saved the project in the early 00s. For it was the emirates who invested money in completing the development of the complex (400-500 million it took) and became the starting customer. If there wasn’t the UAE, the Carapace would have remained only in transfers of the level of the Shock Force - as a prototype that has no analogues in the galaxy.

        The main thing is to fit reality under the cliche - it’s easier, more understandable and pleasant to the ears of others. One has to manage this way: to connect a hundred-year contract with the shadow traffic of armaments to friendly forces. What is the Kremlin’s foresight, however.

        Meeting the limits: technical and humanitarian, what kind of Personnel in politics, with such a technique? - it looks like: the proposals are fair to take away the right to nuclear weapons from Moscow, they do not correspond to the level of responsibility for the events - the fate of the Soviet Union is a witness.

    It is indicated that if the radar is inoperative, this does not mean the loss of combat capabilities by the anti-aircraft missile-gun complex
    the combat capabilities of the complex were significantly affected. In this case, ZRPK lost the SOC - target detection station. Judging by the photo, the radar tracking target and sighting missiles has no external damage, theoretically, the complex can fire at targets that are in visual visibility

    And yet it would be interesting to check whether he would hit the Ukrainian R-360 rocket Neptune, or Neptune would pick up the Pantsyr, the other day it was tested with radio interference on the homing head, and indeed how will the EW affect it and will it affect it at all, if not, then the Russian fleet in the Black Sea, oh, how sweet it will be, roughly speaking a complete jo!

        It's not even about Neptune and other weapons, it's about deep under the skin, in the soul. You talk too self-confidently about the invincibility of the Russian army, no matter how you have to cry with a cigar in your trembling hands. As the ancient Greek poet Homer wrote: “Anger comes easily, but righteous anger takes time.” A literate person will understand what this is about.

      I didn’t understand anything from the text, except for the abbreviation EW .. The carapace has an opto-electronic guidance channel .. so the e-mail is .. past. Radars work in cm and mm ranges .. EW in dm .. again past with high probability ..
      As for the rocket of the dark genius of ukroboronprom..this is an analogue of the Russian Uranus..X-35 .. or the same subsonic AGM / RGM / UGM-84 "Harpoon" ... which are food even for automatic rifles..and they will only succeed in one case .. whether the PCR wave will be able to overload the air defense ... Judging by the economic successes of Ukraine .. there’s no reason to even talk about the possibility of creating such a wave ..
