S-500 "Prometheus": why the Russian air defense system has no competitors


In 2021, the Russian Armed Forces will receive the first S-500 air defense systems. This system in the modern world has no analogues, which is recognized not only by domestic, but also by foreign military experts.


According to the statement of the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexei Krivoruchko, contracts for serial production of the latest anti-aircraft missile system will begin to be signed in 2025. So already in the foreseeable future, the Russian armed forces will acquire a complex with which no world air defense and missile defense system is still capable of competing.

The first generation of space defense systems


Recall that the S-500 “Prometheus” air defense system belongs to a new generation of anti-aircraft missile systems capable of separately solving missions to destroy ballistic and aerodynamic targets, including medium-range ballistic missiles, intercontinental ballistic missiles, hypersonic cruise missiles, low-orbit satellites, unmanned aerial vehicles and enemy aircraft.

The performance characteristics of the S-500, according to Russian military experts, make it possible to attribute the anti-aircraft missile system to the first generation of anti-space defense systems that can repel threats from near space. After all, the S-500 air defense system is capable of destroying targets at ranges of up to 600 km and at altitudes of up to 200 km. That is, 90% of the S-500 air defense range is in space, as Russian military expert Colonel Reserve Khatylev emphasizes.

American analyst Dave Majumdar of The National Interest writes that the S-500 can simultaneously destroy up to 10 warheads from outer space. According to Majumdar, the S-500 along with the S-400 and S-300 will form a single integrated air defense system that can effectively protect Russian airspace from a wide variety of threats.


Range, Altitude and Superior Radars


The S-500 air defense system will use the most advanced radar systems to detect targets at a great distance. Heavy duty radar will increase the target detection range by 150-200 km, which is significantly higher than that of such an effective anti-aircraft missile system like the S-400.

This circumstance is cause for serious concern for the US military, who doubt the invisibility of even such aircraft as the F-22, F-35 and B-2 for radars. In turn, the Chinese analyst Zhou Hongxin from Sina, comparing the S-500 with the American Patriot Advanced Capability-3 anti-aircraft missile system, draws conclusions not in favor of the latter and claims that the Russian anti-aircraft missile system has no analogues in the modern world. Sohu's Liang Jianjun sees nothing surprising in this, noting that while the United States has always been strong in offensive weapons, the Soviet Union and Russia are still not superior to weapons defense.

Chinese experts even attribute to the S-500 the ability to shoot down meteorites flying to Earth from space. The firing range, the flight altitude of the missiles and the homing system, according to experts, turn the S-500 into the most advanced air defense and missile defense system at the moment. When serial deliveries of the S-500 to the Russian armed forces begin, it will be possible to talk about the emergence of a full-fledged aerospace defense system in the Russian army.

Finally, another unconditional plus of the S-500 air defense system is its cost, which in any case is lower than that of the American THAAD system, despite the fact that the latter is inferior to the S-500 in a number of parameters, since the S-500 can be used against a wide variety of goals. At the same time, it is still extremely premature to talk about export supplies of S-500 air defense systems. But many want ... not to talk, but to buy right away.

      Yes, they do not need him. But not like the elusive Joe, but because they have a different paradigm. They pay particular attention to means of attack, not defense. And anti-aircraft missiles, it’s always the defense and they won’t win the war.

      And I would legislatively forbid our military and officials to use the verb "will" in all cases. Not because it is a bad word, but because it has, to put it mildly, little in common with their reality. Take even the S-500. At first we were promised that he will Designed by 2015. Then - will by 2017 So it is with 2020. And now another Krivoyazykov promises a contract for serial delivery to 2025 year. And I don’t want to remember about the various Armats, Sarmatians, Barguzins and other Kurganians with Coalitions and Boomerangs. It’s just that our managers have no promises worldwide.

      Video test missile defense Nudol link below.
      According to the US Space Command, on April 15, the Nudol rocket was launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome. According to publicly available information, the first flight tests of the rocket began back in 2014. A total of about ten launches were made.


      A number of media, citing sources in the US military department, said that during the last launch, Russian military engineers were able to disperse the Nudol to a hypersonic speed of 7 kilometers per second. The previous missile test took place on December 23, 2018. Then “Nudol” was in the air for 17 minutes and overcame about three thousand kilometers.

      What is a Nudol rocket?

      Nudol is part of the hypersonic missile system of the same name, the main task of which is to destroy the warheads of intercontinental ballistic missiles on approaching trajectories. This ammunition is classified as a space rocket.

        PL-19 Nudol has been tested several times, but is at the same stage as the C-500. And the statements of the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexei Krivoruchko are simply not correct, since today Israel’s air defense is multilevel and has such a system:
        Iron Dome: intercepts short-range missiles (bottom layer)
        David Sling: intercepts missiles of small and medium and large and long range from surface to surface (middle layer)
        Arrow-2: intercepts medium and long-range missiles (top layer)
        Arrow-3: intercepts long-range missiles (top layer space 100,000 met.)

          It really has no competitors in its performance characteristics. Or do you know another system in the size of the S-500, designed to intercept ICBMs? Since the same THAAD is designed to intercept operational-tactical ballistic missiles and is limited against ballistic missile defense. And therefore, in terms of functionality, it does not pull in analogs of the S-500. THAAD is inferior even to the S-400.

          For the first time, Russian air defense forces demonstrated the capabilities of their S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems for intercepting hypersonic targets. It is reported by the American edition of Military Watch.

          It is assumed that the interception of a ballistic missile warhead simulator was carried out using a 40H6E long-range anti-aircraft guided missile. Today it is the only Russian missile capable of hitting targets moving at a speed of 14 Machs.


          40H6E can hit aerodynamic, ballistic and hypersonic targets. The minimum height for hitting targets is 10 meters with a minimum range of 5 km. The maximum range of destruction of warheads of medium-range ballistic missiles is 15 km, and the maximum range of destruction of aerodynamic targets is up to 400 km.

    The funny thing is that no one can say for sure whether she (S-500) can intercept ICBM warheads. Judging by the reach of a height of 200 km - hardly. The height of the trajectory of the ICBMs is about 1100-1200 km. Anti-ballistic missiles designed to intercept ICBMs have significantly higher reach.

    THAAD is inferior even to the S-400.

    In what? If in the range of defeat - then yes. But in reach in height, THAAD is superior to the S-400.

      The interception altitude is 200 km of THAAD and 185 km of S-400. Well, it doesn’t matter. It can be said about the same level. wink
      A missile with the symbol 40N6E is capable of hitting targets in near space - the highest altitude of its fire reaches 185 kilometers. According to some reports, the rocket is capable of hitting targets at ranges up to 400 km. In April last year, the Russian defense department already announced the receipt of missiles with such high-altitude characteristics for S-400 complexes.

      Well, why no one can say? That's what the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexei Krivoruchko says.
      Last year, the Russian military tested unmatched rockets for the S-500 anti-aircraft missile systems in the world. This was announced by Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexei Krivoruchko in his article published in the corporate journal "Radioelectronic Technologies" concern KRET.

      “In 2019, the air defense missile forces tested the latest S-500 Prometheus air defense system with the launch of new missiles that have no analogues in the world,” said Krivoruchko.

      According to him, the new complex will be ready for deliveries to the troops in 2020.

      The Deputy Minister of Defense specified that the main task of the S-500 is to combat the combat equipment of medium-range ballistic missiles (independent interception with a launch range of up to 3500 km) and intercontinental ballistic missiles in the final section of the trajectory, and in certain cases in the middle section.

      Earlier, Krivoruchko in an interview with the newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda reported that preliminary tests of the S-500 anti-aircraft missile system will begin in 2020, and the start of serial deliveries is scheduled for 2025.

      200 kilometers may be due to interception in the upper atmosphere when the combat unit descends to the target, if I am not mistaken, the THAAD complex works on this principle and most likely the S-500 will also work.

    The interception height is 200 km of THAAD and 185 km of S-400. Well, it doesn’t matter. Approximately at the same level we can say

    In fact, on Army 2019, the tablet indicated reach parameters for height at least 5 times less than you write. What, then, is the difference between an “unmatched S-500” and S-400? In addition, as I understand it, for an anti-satellite missile (interceptor missile), another radar is needed, which is simply not included in the S-400. The point is to spend billions to put into service a new system that is no different from the S-400 ... ???

    Quote: Sky Strike fighter
    A number of media, citing sources in the US military department, said that during the last launch, Russian military engineers were able to disperse the Nudol to a hypersonic speed of 7 kilometers per second. The previous missile test took place on December 23, 2018. Then “Nudol” was in the air for 17 minutes and overcame about three thousand kilometers.

    An elementary calculation shows that having accelerated to a speed of 7 km / s, a distance of 3000 km, the Nudol would have passed in 7 minutes, but not in 17 ...

    Maxim! I can present you with a dozen mistakes and deputy defense ministers, and the heads of the main operational department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, and other responsible persons. The same Borisov, who claimed that Sarmat could deliver as many as 10 tons of warheads to the United States through the south pole to the United States. Although it is well known that with such a trajectory this value will be approximately 3 times less than with a purely ballistic one. Moreover, he stated that the non-abandoned weight is 10 tons (and it includes everything: warheads, dilution stage, dilution stage fuel, KSP PRO, namely warheads. That is, in fact, the Sarmata being thrown in this case should be under 30-40 tons , and the starting one - under 600 tons. Believe it?
    There are still the same comrades with big stars on uniform and high office, who carry the same blizzard. It’s just that their “bazaar” needs to be filtered and not considered as the ultimate truth ...

        But was it that they were two different tests? Perhaps during the extreme test the speed of the rocket was increased. For example, due to new fuel.

        The point is that the S-500 should intercept ICBMs, and not just the BMD like the S-400.

          Actually, the text of the news is as follows
          Russia conducted another successful flight test of its new anti-satellite missile system last month, according to two people with direct knowledge of a classified US intelligence report.
          The anti-satellite missile flew for 17 minutes and 1,864 miles before successfully splashing down in its target area.


          There are two options. Either CNBC has finally gone nuts, having received a heavy shell-shock in their war with Trump, or they are mocking. An anti-satellite missile hit the target area.

          The main problem, why Russia doesn’t get anti-satellite missiles, is that all orbital objects are in the open NORAD catalog. So nothing orbiting is impossible to bring down conditionally, presumably, According to sources close to the military-industrial complex etc. Either shot down or not.

          But the warheads of ICBMs can be shot down conditionally. This is what they are doing.

          Always successful. Unlike the Americans, who shoot down ICBMs every other time, 50/50.

          But they shoot down real ICBMs.

    Yes, that's exactly what THAAD does. But it is designed to intercept the BDSD. Will he intercept the BB ICBM - HZ. As far as I know, there were no such tests. Even an interceptor designed to intercept a ballistic missile defense system, but still capable of theoretically intercepting an MBR ICBM in terms of performance characteristics, the SM-3 Block2A standard has an altitude reach of 1500 km and a speed of about 15M. I do not think that the 40N6 SAM has the same speed ...

    I do not know. Unknown generally real TTX "Sarmat". There was not a single flight test. But "I am tormented by vague doubts" that it will be equal to the "Governor" in its mass and dimensions. If you want my IMHO, then thrown with such a configuration (partially orbital) will be one and a half tons, and the block itself is hardly more than a ton

      It is assumed that the interception of a ballistic missile warhead simulator was carried out using a 40H6E long-range anti-aircraft guided missile. Today it is the only Russian missile capable of hitting targets moving at a speed of 14 Machs.

    Yes, but those who are developing similar weapons are still trying to test them for real goals in space. The Americans shot down their satellite (although this is not the same as the BB). The Chinese and Indians are also their idle companions. Therefore, you can shoot down, but only your own. And “a conditional missile hit a conditional target” - such a test will not give a guarantee.

    Conditionally possible. But will it be in reality. Until you try for a real purpose - there is no guarantee. I was always touched by statements like "At the Sary-Shagan training ground, a conditional launch of a missile defense against a conditional target was carried out. The target was hit"
