"Able to squeeze the Russian systems": the US press about the new Belarusian air defense system "Buk-MB3K"

The Belarusian military-industrial complex, continuing to offer new products to interested countries, demonstrates its ability to play an active role and successfully compete in the world arms market.


From heir to creator


One of his creations - the Buk-MB3K medium-range air defense system - was noticed by the American edition of Military Watch. In his words, Belarus has become the third largest successor of the USSR's defense sector, yielding only Russia and Ukraine in terms of the scale of the acquired technologies and capacities. Thanks to this base, it has successfully “improved its Tanks and aircraft and provided services for the modernization of Soviet and even post-Soviet weapons systems, including high-end platforms such as the Su-27 and Su-30 fighters, ”the newspaper writes.

However, the new Buk system shows that Belarus is not only able to offer modernization of existing air defense systems [...] but is also able to produce its own platforms for export

- notes Military Watch.

It was noted that Belarus is capable of pushing Russia out of the world air defense market.

The newly developed S-band AFAR [dm and m] is integrated into Buk-MB3K, capable of detecting air targets at ranges up to 130 km. It is installed on a self-propelled launcher and is capable of operating in motion at a speed of 60 km / h. The radar can perform automatic target detection and tracking (both in active and passive modes), measuring its primary data: azimuth, range and radial velocity.

According to Belarusian sources, "Buk-MB3K" works on all types of targets: from cruise missiles to strike and reconnaissance drones. New subsystems for digital communication and data exchange will allow the system to function as part of a larger air defense network.



Prospects for the new system


Moreover, "Buki" in Belarus itself, most likely, will be integrated together with long-range platforms S-400, which will be provided by Russia

- considers Military Watch.

According to him, the Russian Buk-M2 and Buk-M3 systems currently dominate the medium-range air defense systems market, and to a lesser extent - the Chinese HQ-16. They are direct competitors of the new Belarusian product. Thus, Buk-M2 is operated in about 10 countries.

The new [Russian] Buk-M3 far exceeds the capabilities of its Belarusian competitor, but it is noticeably more expensive. This could provide Buk-MB3K with a niche in the world arms market, which would be expanded by the US threats to impose sanctions against Russian customers. weapons

- writes Military Watch, pointing out the ability of the new product to press out Russian counterparts.

In addition, according to him, the new Belarusian system could be acquired by countries less friendly to Russia, such as Georgia, Bulgaria and Ukraine, which already operate the old Buk-M1 systems.

All this "mulka" with "Belarusian air defense systems"it rests - in ONE small, but annoying for Belarusians" misunderstanding "- the 9М317 missiles are produced only by Dolgoprudnenskoe NPP!

All his life he played tricks, got into "stories"! And then he began to beg his relatives to save him ... he had to "help out" ... pay money for him! But, as soon as the "story" ended ... some time passed ... and everything started all over again! Figuratively speaking, when they dragged him to the stake, he yelled: save me! When rescued and time passed, the "op" began: Oh, I want to count! Oh, let me in there! "

          There was no disaster. There were shameful moments that were caused by the general mess in the Russian Armed Forces at that time. When they remembered what they taught, and began to fly and fight as they should, the losses abruptly stopped.

        good Especially about the "well ... hot shorts"! lol And the rest - too! Although attempts to "sit in one seat on two stools at once" seem logical for the leaders of small countries with limited resources and opportunities, and even those who are at the "junction" of powerful forces with diametrically opposed geopolitical interests ... But Alas! This is extremely rare! For "stools" have a nasty property to disperse in different directions, and then ..... Next - the impressive "Chryas!" - right ..... with shorts on the floor! drinks

            Well, the Teutons will remember about the German lands, which Stalin gave.
            This is where the alliance between the Pshek and the United States comes from.
            But the psheks do not remember that the Anglo-Saxons always did not fulfill their promises.

                He was engaged in trade with the Poles. We looked at the goods, the money was transferred, the goods were sent.
                We looked at another product in the warehouse, offered to buy it.
                But the goods are contracted for another firm.
                They were surprised that they were refused even for a high price.

    We are not talking about the S-400, although they, as they themselves claim, have a complex similar to the S-300. These are Buk-type complexes. These are the complexes that Iran has, like mud
