"Only as a private option": Ukraine conducted a study on the possible purchase of Patriot air defense systems

In Ukraine, a study was carried out for the possible acquisition of foreign-made anti-aircraft missile systems. The United States and Israel are named in the press as countries that "could" carry out supplies of their air defense systems to Ukraine.


Representatives of the Central Research Institute of Arms and Military Equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, having analyzed the situation, came to the conclusion that for the full creation of a modern air defense system based on foreign-made complexes, such amounts of funds are needed that exceed the resources of the military budget of Ukraine by at least 10 times.

In such a situation, they decided to discuss the possibility of creating their own air defense systems. But in this case, the specialists of the Central Research Institute came to disappointing conclusions. In this case, too, financial resources do not allow Ukraine to acquire modern air defense systems, not only in the short term, but also in the medium term.

Scientists of the Ukrainian Research Institute:

This issue has its stumbling blocks. The purchase of foreign air defense systems, for example, Patriot PAC-2/3, SAMP-T and other versions, even without taking into account their maintenance, repair and training of specialists, requires huge funds. They are at least 10 times higher than the budget of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In this regard, the purchase of the Patriot air defense system from the United States can be considered only as a private option for improving the Ukrainian air defense system.

At the same time, it is added that the need to consult directly with manufacturers must not be overlooked.

It should be recalled that the United States is far from ready to sell its air defense systems to everyone. So, at one time they did not sell them to Turkey, which is a NATO member, which is why the Turks bought the S-400 from Russia.

The very discussion of the possible purchase of air defense systems abroad in Ukraine arose in connection with the statement of the head of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak, who a few weeks ago said literally the following: “I have repeatedly said that we should buy Patriot air defense systems, but not anti-aircraft, but anti-missile systems.”

      In this regard, the purchase of the Patriot air defense system from the United States can only be considered as a private option for improving the Ukrainian air defense system.


      Private, or another option is not the point.
      The bottom line is that the Okrainskie "specialists" see the improvement of their air defense in the combination of organically incompatible systems!

      And this is real - a circus on a dart (wire).

        Just the essence! Maybe someone wants to buy it in private hands? There are SUCH people willing! And they won't share it with their "native army".

          You initially misunderstood the meaning of the definition "private option", therefore, you interpret it based on your understanding of insanity, which as a whole swept the outskirts of society and politicum.

          But you need to understand that the Patriot air defense system is not the system that the United States is ready to transfer into someone else's private hands.

            The United States and will not transfer anything to Ukraine. It is Ukraine that will give the United States three or four plots of land, near the Russian border, for the construction of bases. The Americans will build bases there for their money and will naturally cover their Patriot air defense systems, maybe even with new components that the wise Israelis came up with. As a result, Americans guard the Ukrainian sky for free, Ukrainians drink vodka and shout all sorts of anti-Russian slogans in the cherry orchards growing around the houses, and hardworking bees collect nectar from these very blossoming cherry trees. Idyll…

        It will be necessary to change not only the air defense missile system, but also the means of communication, the location system, interfacing, the control system and again interfacing with the radar and a whole bunch of other things. Well, and the flag in their hands.
        I think it's just someone's words.

    Who should we? ukroine or personally Homchaku and his comrades ...?
    And who bought it? A kind uncle from across the hill? Or a "chocolate president" from personal funds?
    Yes, and anti-missile ... they are afraid of suckers ... laughing They are waiting for "Satan" in Kiev. wink

    While they will deal with all sorts of air defense systems there, I'd better congratulate you
    Happy Saint Nicholas Day
    I sincerely congratulate everyone!
    So that he blesses you
    and gave me health!

    such amounts of funds are needed that exceed the resources of the military budget of Ukraine by at least 10 times.
    In this case, desires do not coincide with possibilities. No one will give - it will turn out to be too expensive a gift, if only again on credit, since debts are like silk, and in the USA and Israel they know how to count money. All that remains is to dream and drool.

    Private option, is it to put in your yard? So there is no use from him, only losses - for the purchase, for the maintenance and so on.

    belay The United States refused to Turkey, a NATO member, but would the banana republic, which will not return the loan for the purchase of missiles, be happy? fool

    The whole essence of the rotten pan-head mentality in one expression
    The very discussion of the possible purchase of air defense systems abroad in Ukraine arose in connection with the statement of the head of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak, who a few weeks ago said literally the following: “I have repeatedly said, to buy us a Patriot air defense system, but not anti-aircraft, but anti-missile. "

    Such a sweet word "freebie". There is no way to say "so that we buy", namely "so that WE can buy". Anglo-Saxons and Jews are not the simple-minded Russian Vanka, who could be easily bred for free with the mantras "Well, we are brothers!"

    If you think about it: why does Ukraine need a missile defense version of the Patriot? The main threat from the Russian Federation is Aviation and Iskander.

    Ha.ha.ha ... ha.
    In this case, you don't even have to be a "Ukrainian scientist" to "conduct research".

    1) To integrate Patriot air defense system into the air defense system of Ukraine is nonsense, it is physically and practically impossible.
    2) The topic of air defense since 2014 is covered with a "fog of war" and the fact that the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine blurted out with a real decision about the real improvement of the air defense of Ukraine and did not lie close.
    3) In connection with the development of the mass use of UAVs in the military sphere, we are talking not only about a fundamental change not only of the entire structure of the air defense of Ukraine, but of the entire concept.
    Judging by the fact that a pandora's box was opened in Karabakh on the use of a kamikaze UAV to carry out a quick blitzkrieg ... the improvement of air defense, taking into account the kamikaze BLPA, found the air defense of many countries with "pants down".
    In reality, the Turks themselves did not expect such an effect ... and they themselves do not have an antidote for this ... so the Patriot air defense system is already outdated.

    The private version is not literally, but partially used in the general air defense system of Ukraine.

    Lord, well, give some reason ... these ... The most powerful armed forces after the withdrawal of units and formations from the groups of forces, the advanced equipment and weapons at that time, "their" tank building, aviation, missile industry, shipbuilding ... cars .. All about ... fucking, sold and stolen. Now they feed on substandard, to put it mildly, goods from over the hill. And Russia is to blame. belay
