"Now the ships of the Russian Navy have medium-range air defense": the US press about the appearance of the Pantsir-M air defense missile system

66

The Russian defense industry continues to develop new air defense systems to protect warships from air threats, including missiles, aircraft, helicopters, and unmanned aerial vehicles. Now the Russian Navy has a new product at its disposal.


With "Pantsir-M" the Russian fleet was able to destroy targets at short and medium distances

- writes the publication Navy Recognition (USA), commenting on the equipping of the naval version of the air defense missile system of the ships of the Russian Navy.

Developed in the 1960s in the United States, the 20mm Phalanx, as explained, remains the primary weapons Melee air defense of American and allied warships.

However, this should not reassure Russian specialists, since the numerical superiority of the US and NATO fleets and the sea aviation forces Russia to strengthen the melee air defense of single warships and formations

- the American press warns.

It is indicated that anti-ship stealth missiles, such as AGM-158, LRASM, MST, NSM, have been intensively developed in Western countries. It is assumed that in the next decade, the fleets of potential adversaries are likely to be armed with hypersonic anti-ship missiles.

"Pantsir-M" is one of the answers [to these challenges]

- writes the edition.

As noted by Navy Recognition, the ground-based version of the Pantsir-S complex "proved its effectiveness in Syria" during the defense of the Khmeimim airbase and the naval point in Tartus, successfully intercepting drones and MLRS shells. The export version of the Syrian army "Pantsir-C1" demonstrated no less high performance.

In 2018-2019, Israeli aviation managed to destroy two "Shell", which were either unloaded or in a non-combat state. Several launchers were destroyed by Turkish UAVs during the fighting in Syrian Idlib and Libya in 2020. In most cases, the destroyed vehicles were in a non-combat state.

- believes the American edition.

      It remains only to "shove" it into the smallest detail. Because compared to the AK-630, this is a big step forward.
      Only one thing surprises - Poliment -Redut was overwhelmed for many years, and Pantsir - they managed it in just a couple of years.

      So they showed RIM-116 efficiency 95%
      In 10 different scenarios, real anti-ship missiles and Vandal supersonic missile targets (reaching speeds up to Mach 2.5) were successfully intercepted and destroyed in real conditions. The RAM Block 1 system from the first shot hit all targets, including those flying at extremely low altitude above the sea surface, diving and highly maneuverable targets in single and group attacks.
      in total, more than 180 missiles were fired against anti-ship missiles and other targets, while achieving success in more than 95% of cases "


      This complex covers an area from 0,5 to 10 km.
      In the Block3 version, they will clearly expand the border of defeat.

      The RIM-116 complex is much lighter (due to the abandonment of artillery machine guns), high accuracy and low reaction speed.


      The only negative is that it is manually recharged :)

        When talking about the "probability of defeat" you need to consider: what target, what EPR, on what height flies maneuvers or notm (and if it maneuvers - then with WHAT overload!), what kind of jamming situation, etc., etc. ...

          When they talk about the "probability of defeat", one must take into account: what target, what RCS, at what altitude it flies, maneuvers or not


          This is not enough to determine the likelihood of defeat:
          real anti-ship missiles and Vandal supersonic missile targets (developing speeds up to Mach 2.5) were successfully intercepted and destroyed in real conditions. The RAM Block 1 system from the first shot hit all targets, including those flying at extremely low altitude above the sea surface, diving and highly maneuverable targets in single and group attacks.

            the devil is in the details. what was the speed of the target on the PMA and what is the PMA? 5, 15 or 25 meters? targets were maneuvering. if yes - which G? Did the goals come from different angles or, on the contrary, barbecue?
            There are a lot of such questions. By the way, some Russian and Chinese (? - did not check) have a terminal speed of more than 2.5. Another nuance - in this air defense system it is assumed that the enemy anti-ship missile system has its own active GOS, and there may be options

          The missile systems could have been equipped with six or nine instead of four, all the same, air defense is not superfluous on a ship, and the carrying capacity allows it, because this is not Kamaz. And in difficult times, an extra rocket will never be superfluous.

    Odintsovo is the first surface ship armed with Pantsir-M air defense missile system. The crew has already passed comprehensive training at the joint training center of the Navy in St. Petersburg and is ready to use new equipment and weapons. During the training of sailors, emphasis was placed on mastering new on-board systems.
    In addition to the air defense system, the small missile ship has a high-precision missile system "Caliber", modern control systems, radio-technical weapons, radio communications, navigation, electronic warfare and others.

        The Pantsir missile may fly 40 km away, but it will not be able to shoot down a maneuvering target at such a distance because of the primitive laws of control: the three-point method and the half-straightening method. In addition, there is no engine in the second stage, so it will slow down significantly. In fact, a chance to shoot down only a non-maneuvering target flying directly to the "Shell"

            It is not necessary to climb with a good self-defense complex into the niche of the medium-range air defense system. The "thick" missile "Pantsir" is needed not to shoot at 40 km, but to shoot down targets faster, while opening up the SSTSR guidance channels (there are 4 of them) for new targets.

              The declared range is 20 km. It all comes down to the cost and weight of the missiles. You can't shove rockets of a larger mass - the guidance drives are not designed for a large mass. It remains to raise the price of missiles, giving them the ability to intercept maneuvering targets.
              But still the -20km range of the Shell looks much better than the 3.5km range of Kortik.

          So I said about the rocket, the rocket has an advantage; when approaching the target, the selection and sensitivity are improved compared to systems on the carrier, that is, a ship or an aircraft.

            Then what has the PAR and the AFAR to do with it? NNZ, they are not on the rocket and are not expected.

              Come on, on the anti-ship missiles the Harpoon has a phased array with 80x shaggy ones, on the missiles the standard of the latest models is also a phased array, replaced by an AFAR. What I wrote above, modern phased array systems, and even better, the AFAR has the ability to detect not only the target itself but also its trace in the atmosphere , like the submariners' wake trail of submarines or NK. This effect was actually applied in 1973, during the Yom Kippur War, when the Egyptians had Soviet radars of the P-15 and P-18 types recorded two targets during the passage of the SR-71 Black Bird, one of the aircraft itself and the second from its wake shock wave, that's what I wrote about above.

                And what has Harpoon, Standard and everything else to do with it? It was about one specific missile defense system with IR seeker - i.e. RAM (RIM-116)

    And since when did Shell M become medium range, did I miss something?

    Isn't this a short-range air defense system?

    You can’t believe us --- if they praise, then everything is not as smooth as we would like with the Armor !!! And there really are problems, especially in the fight against drones .. And bragging and hating is useless here --- we need a thorough modernization work !!!

    So they showed RIM-116 efficiency 95%

    I wonder for what purposes - Harpoons or Exoset?

    In my opinion, the fleet should have an object for practicing the protection of Pantsirem-M from attacks by real anti-ship missiles "on you". Better coastal, when the staff is hidden "for every fireman" somewhere off to the side in the catacombs.
