“The era of S-500 Prometheus domination: Russia has created an anti-aircraft complex that surpasses all existing

The era of domination of the Russian anti-aircraft missile system S-500 "Prometheus" begins in the world. Russia was able to surprise everyone by creating a new anti-aircraft complex that surpassed all existing defensive systems in the world, the Egyptian publication Sasapost writes.


According to the publication, earlier in the world there were three of the best anti-aircraft systems: the Russian S-400 air defense system and the American Patriot and THAAD systems. However, by creating a new S-500 Prometey complex, Russia was able to far overtake the United States and other manufacturers of anti-aircraft systems.

There is an atmosphere of secrecy around the new complex, the newspaper writes, but some data still gets into the media, so it can be stated with confidence that the new complex can hit not only medium-range missiles and aircraft, but also hit missiles in near space. The S-500 can shoot down any aircraft or rocket, even if their speed exceeds the speed of sound. The complex is capable of detecting and shooting down 10 ballistic missiles simultaneously. It can also hit targets at an altitude of 200 kilometers.

In May 2018, Russia spent the longest in stories test of the ground-to-air missile, during which Prometheus managed to hit the target at a distance of 482 km, which is 78 km more than the previous record. On June 4, 2019, the Russian Ministry of Defense published a video in which a system of interceptor missiles hits a long-range ground-to-air missile. The name of the system under test was not mentioned in the video, but according to popular belief, it was the S-500 anti-aircraft missile system

- the article says.

Another advantage of the Russian complex is its mobility: it can be quickly deployed in just a few minutes to hit any target detected by early warning devices.

Unlike all other air defense systems, the S-500 is supplied with radar information that can be transmitted by any third party in any region of the world. The S-500 can recognize the threat, even if it is outside the range of its radar devices, the newspaper writes. This feature of Prometheus makes us believe that the S-500 can bring down the F-35 invisible fighter - the pride of the American military industry.

In conclusion, the publication writes that Russia has created a complex with unique characteristics that turn it into a global threat. The new anti-aircraft system will dominate the world, and other countries will only be able to observe this. The deployment of one complex in Kaliningrad will allow Russia to control many countries, including the Baltic states. And the deployment of the S-500 in the Crimea "will cover the entire Black Sea with an umbrella."

      There may not be any analogs .... the equipment is made for the needs of a particular state ..... MiG31, for example, we need, the USA is not needed. But it has no analogues. Or Tu22 with anti-ship missiles ....

        MiG31, for example, ... has no analogues.

        Here in the "Reporter" they wrote that the F-15 EX accelerates up to 3 Machs.
        Most likely they lied without thinking. But it sounded like an analogue of the MiG-31.

          The F-15 accelerated to 3017 km / h (2.93 Mach approximately) back in the 1970s. Without suspensions and with an incomplete fuel supply. After it became clear that such speed had no military value (the rocket is still faster), the Americans calmed down and subsequent modifications of the F-15 cost 2.5 Mach (2660 km / h)

        If about Prometheus, then this is not from Latin mythology, but from Greek. And there:
        Prometheus (dr. Greek Προμηθεύς, lit. - guardian, prudent) - one of the titans in ancient Greek mythology, the protector of people from the arbitrariness of the gods

        Here is the last of Wikipedia, namely, about the protection of people, for us it is important in Russian air defense and missile defense.

      Dominance is ensured by the transition of quality into quantity.

      The transition of quality into quantity is degradation.
      Quality as knowledge (opportunity) of the next level is ensured by accumulating a certain amount of knowledge (capabilities) of the previous level.
      When the necessary amount of already new knowledge (opportunities) is accumulated, the next transition to the next level will occur.
      That is, development is possible only by transferring quantity into quality, but not vice versa.

              They would answer that they did not quite correctly express themselves. And they had in mind that superiority is achieved as a result of the necessary number of new equipment in the troops, while the new model in itself is just a new model.

          As Sidor Amenpodestovich quite rightly remarked, the transition of quality into quantity is accompanied by degradation, deterioration of quality. And this suggests that there will never be many of these complexes. Too expensive is a pleasure.

      It is necessary tactical AWACS - the CPSU en masse, in order to at least have a detachment for the air division or air defense area.
      Accessible base? And depending on which radar - Tu-214 (such as large medium) for example? IL-114 or IL-214, depending on what goes into the series. Yes, even a Superjet.

    . According to the publication, earlier in the world there were three best anti-aircraft systems: the Russian S-400 air defense system and the American Patriot and THAAD systems

    And yet, the SYSTEM is much more than just one modern, even the most advanced air defense system.
    These are many, many different devices, installations and, of course, centers of intelligence, control, management, INTERACTION!
    Our defense doctrine is built on that.
    If someone thinks that acquiring individual nodes of this complex, he can sleep peacefully, a big mistake.

    So, therefore, the “partners” are furious, and the Limitrophs stuff their territory with NATO troops and equipment for some reason thinking that it could save them at the beginning of the conflict and therefore it is safe to pour mud on Russia and constantly provoke it.

    We all read it about the S-300
    The supply of S-300 will certainly strengthen Syrian air defense, it is important to create an effective system of protection against Israeli anti-aircraft defense systems in Syria, a military expert told RBC
    And about the S-400
    16.05.2018
    S-400 recognized as the best air defense system in the world.
    The Russian S-400 Triumph air defense systems have no analogues in the world.
    During this time, they have not yet replaced the S-300
    We are reading now
    The era of domination of the Russian anti-aircraft missile system S-500 "Prometheus" begins in the world. Russia was able to surprise everyone by creating a new anti-aircraft complex that surpassed all existing defensive systems in the world,
    I respect both the military equipment of the USSR and the developments in Russia, but who are these statements for.
    The new anti-aircraft system will dominate the world, and other countries will only be able to observe this.
    We all read and saw the Israeli verification of the Arrow 3 Alaska missile defense system.
    She is already there and is on combat duty and Arrow 4 is being developed without fanfare.

    the analogue of the S-500 is the American Patriot system.
    It is weaker, but since the missile defense and air defense system, this already means an analogue. No matter what characteristics, there is such a similar system, then a similar one already exists.
    It's like an old Soviet Rubin TV, and a modern LCD TV of any company is Samsung.
    They are both televisions. So analogues to each other. So it is with missile defense and air defense systems.

    I readily believe that the complex is good and effective - but a number of inconvenient questions still arose.
    A versatile, high-speed and highly maneuverable missile for hitting both aircraft and missiles at VERY long distances is VERY expensive, complex and laborious to manufacture and, finally (like a cherry on a cake), it is an extremely highly intelligent product. Nobody will shoot such a thing for 400 km without an intellectual filling, at least partially satisfying the task of additional control.

    Will our defense industry be able to handle the mass production of such extremely expensive products? Or will we end up with another small-scale and long-term, creakingly introduced product like "Armata"? Finally - whose electronic base will we be satisfied with in the manufacture of these missiles - ours or some kind of Chinese supplies?
    The missiles will obviously turn out to be "golden" for ordinary air defense missions - probably these are the developments in the doomsday missile defense, and if I'm right, then we will need a lot of such missiles, as well as complexes ..
