"The new air defense system will allow Russia to create a perfect air defense system": China appreciated the S-500

The introduction of the latest S-500 "Prometheus" anti-aircraft missile system into service with the Russian army, together with those already put into service, will allow Russia to create a perfect air defense-missile defense system capable of controlling the entire airspace over the country, including near space. Writes about this Chinese edition "People's Daily".


According to the authors of the article, tests of the latest Russian anti-aircraft missile system S-500 have been successfully completed in Syria. The test results confirmed that the new air defense system is capable of simultaneously shooting down 10 long-range missiles flying at a speed of 18 to 25 thousand kilometers per hour and missiles and aircraft flying at an altitude of 200 kilometers.

Russia will soon receive a fully formed multisystem S-500 complex, consisting of control equipment, anti-aircraft and anti-missile units, the article says. This multisystem system allowed the S-500 air defense system to simultaneously intercept several targets, increase the radar detection range and resistance to electromagnetic interference.

Compared to the S-400 air defense system, the S-500 has 50% improved performance, i.e. range and ability to detect objects with stealth characteristics. The Russian complex allows one to gain an advantage over the American fifth generation fighters. The S-500 complex has doubled the speed and height of intercepted targets, which in the future will make it possible to make the complex a single one for the Russian air defense and missile defense system.

The S-500 complex (...) is capable of intercepting almost all air attack weapons in service with the United States. Thanks to the serial production of unified, modular and standardized equipment parts, the S-500 can become a powerful independent system, as well as quickly turn into a special or combined complex, adapting to the combat missions of anti-aircraft, anti-missile, anti-space and anti-satellite defense

- writes the edition.

The air defense missile systems in service with the Russian army are fully equipped, the authors of the material claim. All S- type air defense systems in service with the Russian army are equally good at dealing with enemy targets located at medium and close range. Russia currently possesses several complexes: S-300, S-350 and S-400. With the addition of the S-500 Prometheus, the Russian air defense will be able to hit hypersonic targets in nearby space, which will expand the boundaries and include outer space.

By combining the level of this air defense system with other existing missile defense systems, Russia will receive a more advanced defense system, which will have a positive effect on Russia's aerospace defense, the authors of the article summarize.

    But what, the same C400 is not able to work on stealth? The newspaper is solid, but the author of the article is an ordinary layman in technology!

      The difference between the S-400 and S-500, in the height of the targets hit.

        The main thing is that the combat algorithms of the S-400 (the S-500 still inherits and continues them) do not go away from the Turks to the Americans ...

          There are no bad ones, as the "non-brothers" say ... The export version of the S-400 differs from those in service with our air defense. I think, and there is a lot of "not yet ..." The Chinese are already making a copy? However, they buy from us. laughing

        Right. S-400 - up to 35 km in height. S-500 - near space.
        Completely different missiles. The S-500 missile will be 10 times more expensive than the S-400.
        And to shoot planes with it is absurd.

          Seriously, a quote from a translation of the same article.
          SAM S-500 consists of controls, anti-aircraft and anti-missile parts. The control facilities include an early warning radar and a command post; the anti-aircraft unit includes a command post, a radar station, a guidance radar, as well as a launcher with a 40N6E missile; the anti-missile part, in turn, consists of a command post, a radar, a radar with an active phased antenna array and a launcher for short-range missiles 77N6-N and long-range missiles 77N6-N1. This multisystem nature allowed the S-500 air defense system to simultaneously intercept several targets, increase the range of radar detection and resistance to electromagnetic interference.

    There would be enough money to purchase 40-50 S-500 divisions, but they would not have been sold to various "partners" like the Turks for a longer time ...
    The main thing is that the $ 2 billion contract with the Turks does not lead to the fact that Russia urgently needs to modernize all its S-400s if they "merge" the complex in the United States.

      KMK, if the logic of the S-400 is really implemented on a scattering of FPGAs, then there is really no point in picking. It is possible to provide individual logic for each customer, even though the chipset will be physically the same. Maximum, they will be able to find out some limitations and weaknesses in detection, as well as the parameters of the new 40N6 missile.

      There is a very big difference between the export version of the s-400 and the one in service in the Russian Federation. So I hope it was handed over to the USA a long time ago and they figured everything out ..

    Where did "10 long-range missiles flying at a speed of 18 to 25 thousand kilometers per hour and missiles and airplanes flying at an altitude of 200 kilometers come from in Syria"?

      Well, it means that the Barmaley have hypersonic missiles, which were launched simultaneously by 10 pieces. Well, the planes at an altitude of 200 km have them, the barmaley, have been flying for a long time, and ours have them once, and on ......... with a stirrer. The publication is "in authority", there will be no tryndet, in kind, and there is no need to shaggy grandma here. wassat

      Is it possible with Russian missile carriers? Maybe Iran helped or did they shoot at the sparrows?

    A very authoritative newspaper. And if he writes, it is mainly about VERIFIED facts. Therefore, some zealuzhniks have reason to listen.

    In light of the growing tension in Southeast Asia and the withdrawal of some from the INF Treaty, I think a complex capable of fighting ballistic targets in near space will be of interest to the Chinese. So they will try to get it even alive, even with a carcass, especially since we promised them cooperation in the development of early warning systems, and the missile defense complex is an integral continuation (application) of this system, not counting nuclear weapons.

    Shederv. Chinese "People's Daily" is annealing to the fullest. One phrase
    is capable of simultaneously shooting down 10 long-range missiles flying at a speed of 18 to 25 thousand kilometers per hour and missiles and aircraft flying at an altitude of 200 kilometers.
    what is it worth. 18 km / h is the speed of medium-range missiles, and 000 is the speed of intercontinental missiles. And if the former can be shot down by such missile defense systems, then for ICBMs the speed of the interceptors of the S-25 system is clearly not enough. Well, the phrase
    rockets and planes flying at an altitude of 200 kilometers.
    is another masterpiece. The flight altitude of an ICBM is from 1000 to 1500 km, but not 200. And the planes flying at such an altitude are also enchanting

    With the addition of the S-500 Prometheus, Russia's air defense will be able to hit hypersonic targets in nearby space, which will expand the boundaries and include outer space.

    Well, the author simply could not fail to write about hypersonic targets in near space. Interestingly, does he know that all missile warheads, ranging from operational-tactical and ending with intercontinental at the end of the OUT, have a hypersonic speed ???

    This is a missile defense interceptor missile. For other missiles, the interception height may be the same or slightly higher with a slightly increased range (I mean the 48N6 series missiles)

    If the S-500 system costs significantly more than the S-400 (and it will cost), then it is unlikely that it will be purchased in the same quantity as the S-400

    Well, the author must write something. How could it be otherwise. Hot spot, barmaley with hypersonic missiles and aerospace attack vehicles (including ICBMs) - and the S-500 was not tested there. RAVE...
