South Korea receives Cheongung's first production mid-range air defense system

South Korean Air Defense Forces received the medium-range anti-aircraft missile system "Cheongung" (Cheongung). According to the Yonhap news agency, the Armed Forces Purchasing Agency of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Korea handed over the first production model of the new air defense system to the troops.


We have created the foundation for the protection of our sky with the help of the domestic weapons system. Having successfully developed a ballistic missile interception system based on radar technology, we have created the basis for creating a Korean-style missile defense system

- said the head of the Agency for the Procurement of Arms Wang Chun Hong.

The medium-range anti-aircraft missile system "Cheongung" (Cheongung) is a Korean development, created with the help of specialists from the Russian concern "Almaz-Antey". The development of missiles for the complex began in 2006, with the research launched five years earlier (the Russian S-350 and S-400 systems were taken as the basis). The missile is equipped with a homing system and strikes targets with a direct hit. The unofficial name for the Cheongung air defense system is "Korean Patriot."

The complex is designed to cover various objects from an air attack and is capable of hitting targets at a range of 35–40 km and an altitude of 15–20 km (some sources claim 40 km). The weight of the rocket is 400 kg, the length is 4,6 meters. One battery of the Chongun air defense system consists of a radar, a command and control vehicle and 6-8 launchers, each of which has eight interceptor missiles. All missiles have a self-destruction system.

    As I understand it, the starting rotary. What is the start of a rocket, mortar (cold) or hot? If it’s hot, then it’s not turning 360? Otherwise, the cabin interferes. Why not a vertical start?

    Where is the base from the C-350/400, when the air defense system has a rotary launcher? Our foundation is a vertical start. So there are other missiles, and radar, respectively, too.

      It was about the technologies that the developers rely on. The missiles are clear that they are different. However, the location of the launcher is vertical or at an angle is not a sign that the missiles are different or the same. Just different principles of guidance systems. And the missiles are still standing upright or under a corner. This is as much as you like. It does not follow that they are different or the same. The Koreans took as a basis the location of the launchers, following the example of Patriot.

      A vertical start or a rotary PU is generally such an insignificant trifle. The basis of air defense systems is a means of detection and guidance, and what kind of start is the tenth thing.

        Wow "little thing"! belay Especially when attacking from an unexpected direction or from different directions!
        Or do you naively think that the whole world is gradually switching to VPU simply due to the "whim of fashion"?
        PS I don't mean "Armor" - it is a rocket-cannon one (to implement "vertical" is nonsense).

          Expand the inclined PU in different directions? Arrange anti-aircraft weapons in such a way that there would be no attacks from unexpected directions? One in the field is not a warrior, but it is either air defense or systemic;
          Or do you naively think that the whole world is gradually switching to VPU simply due to the "whim of fashion"?

          The whole world is for example who? Soviet systems and their Chinese clones? What I think I wrote above. The basis of any SAM is not PU, PU is a minor thing, although I agree with the idea that vertical launchers look noticeably more interesting than inclined ones.

          PS: but they really were with the Koreans with a vertical start and not inclined :)

      Namesake! Don't be silly! What kind of "output" there? The development of the complex for Korea began in the early 2000s (sorry for the tautology). At that time, relations between Russia and the states had not reached such intensity as they are now, so the "mattress makers" and "slapped" this deal ..... After the introduction of "sanctions", Koreans are afraid to even look towards the Russian military-industrial complex: they immediately shout from "the owner"will follow!

          =======
          It is OBJECTIVE! When developing K-SAM for Korea, Almaz-Antey specialists got access to any the most modern element bases American, Japanese, European and Israeli production, incl. and to those who (despite the relations that have not yet deteriorated completely) did not seek to sell to us. This is what allowed the design thought to "roam" and create a concept of a relatively simple but VERY effective medium-range air defense / missile defense system. And at the same time, to understand what exactly we DO NOT ENOUGH (in the sense of the element base, and at the same time HOW this problem needs to be solved!
          PS By the way - I didn’t come up with this - one of the leading designers of Almaz-Antey spoke about this in an interview with the Vityaz!
          PPS I don't think that very much I will be mistaken in the assumption that such a strong delay in terms of "Vityaz" and "Polyment-Redut", at least in part due to the fact that with the introduction of sanctions, we were imposed an embargo not only on the most modern, but also on ANY microelectronics of military and "dual" use. And import substitution - it takes a little time!

    Now your word is Comrade Mauser .... i.e. means of attack must be made irresistible! This is a task for serious, SMART guys !!! And then it rests on the categorical need to develop its own scientific production base !! And how will closing the math and other specialized schools help us in this ???
    Maybe it’s just the opposite, it’s the enemy who is trying to fit our children under a single standard standard ???

          It's not all that simple there. Almaz-Antey won an official international tender. Chinarem. And so that the good would not be wasted, he suggested using the theme for the Ministry of Defense. Everything resulted in our "Knight". What is not clear from the proposed quote? Here, rather, the South Koreans were blindly used. It's a pity, of course, that I had to weave such lace, but ... request At least ours, the parameters of this "Korean Patriot" know.
