The main topic of the Zapad-2021 exercise will be the fight against drones

The main topic of the Zapad-2021 strategic command-and-staff exercise will be the fight against drones and cruise missiles. This was reported by the press service of the Western Military District.


The ZVO explained that units of the combined-arms army of the district will be involved in the Zapad-2021 command and control army, which, together with units of the Belarusian army, will work out the fight against cruise missiles and drones, taking into account the experience of recent military conflicts.

The main exercises of 2021 are planned to be held in a single concept against the background of the general operational and tactical situation. The experience of modern armed conflicts will also be taken into account. During the SKSHU "West-2021" special attention is planned to be paid to the fight against cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles

- said in a statement.

In addition, subdivisions of the Russian and Belarusian armies will work out fire and electronic effects on the enemy, the use of tactical airborne assault forces, a quick transition from one type of combat to another and the creation of a complex, dynamic situation, as well as other combat actions within the framework of assigned tasks.

The Russian-Belarusian strategic exercises West 2021 will be held in September 2021. The exercise plan was approved in October 2020 at the joint Russian-Belarusian collegium of the military departments of the two countries.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the situation on the border of the Union State remains turbulent due to NATO actions. The joint exercises will be aimed at strengthening the security of the Union State.

In the context of the current military-political situation in the region, as well as new challenges and threats (...) the Russian Ministry of Defense considers ensuring the military security of the Union State among its priority tasks

- the minister said.

    To be honest, I have a bad idea of ​​a command and control system for the destruction of drones. Indeed, in my knowledge and understanding, staff exercises are exercises "on the map." That is, on the basis of practical developments, a defense is built, and the enemy is trying to break through it. But the two conflicts (Syria and Karabakh) show quite different results.

      Modern drones and ammunition with an understandable ending were used against the Karabakh army of the 80-90 level, in Syria our electronic warfare and air defense systems successfully counteract all types of UAVs.

        The army is big. More than half of the brigades are equipped with exactly the same equipment as the NKR. Armor and Torah-M2 were seen from Zvezda and magazines in the red corner. Or one unit of the new system is equipped with them. As well as in Armenia - which dropped the case of both electronic warfare and Tor-M2. But it did not help.

          Firstly, what modern means of electronic warfare was there? I may be wrong, but the destroyed complex was not the first freshness ... Secondly, was the same TOR really capable of combat? Thirdly, there were no "Shells" and close in the NKR conflict, even the earliest, therefore it is not worth talking about their effectiveness, because this is no longer an analyst, but speculation and fortune-telling.
          The same "Pantsir" also destroyed UAVs, for which there is the same video ... even somewhere on VO.
          Another thing is that gentlemen Arabs and co. Love very long conversations ... they spotted the UAV from almost 20 km, then they talked nicely about something for a minute before launching ... if the guys are so carelessly fighting, then they have any the weapon will rust.

                I repeat:
                “I don’t know. I didn’t shoot and I can’t vouch for the reliability. All the same, it was not taken from a worthy primary source. But the results of countering UAVs in Syria are definitely on the face. And lancets shoot down, and bayraktars, and so on ...
                So it's not worth portraying a UAV as invulnerable as a wunderwaffe "

                  It's not about invulnerability, but about their cheapness and mass character. A large flock of cheap BALA will be able to overcome air defense, simply by defusing, having suffered losses, of course, in my opinion, the emphasis should be on electronic warfare equipment, specifically in terms of countering UAVs.

                    one bayraktar drone without control systems costs $ 5 million and a set of 6 drones + control systems = $ 70 million.
                    For example, the Yak-130 aircraft for the Russian army costs 7.5 million dollars apiece.

    Secondly, was the TOR exactly combat-ready?

    Thor, at the time of his defeat by the Harpy, had not worked for a long time and folded the radar antenna, after which he crawled into the box and then the Harpy arrived exactly. Then they hit him in less than a minute with something else (they say Bayraktar got close and hit Mamley), which speaks for the fact that a whole operation was carried out against a single Thor.

    Thor was combat-ready, and as they did on the specialized forums of blood to Azerbaijanis, he drank a lot and the UAV fired well, then when he fired off and they wanted to reload him, they finished him off, and so fiercely finished off (emnip 2 harpies and UAB from Rook) just because of the fact that he worked well.
    and led him from a distance of more than 20 km.

        They might not have TPM, but in the conditions of a shortage of equipment, they would have already reloaded them with their hands, there IMHO there was no flow of UAVs that would not be for several minutes, there the mass of a rocket is 170 kg, but a lot, but this is not the weight that cannot be raised by the forces of the republic.

          In general, they were with adequate leaders and organization. Have you noticed the official data on the losses of the parties? For two months Felkishe Beobakhter of the Baku flood entertains us with videos where they were already filming at the end of the murder of individual soldiers of the Armenian army - but what is the result? about 3300-3500 dead Armenians and about 3000 dead Azerbaijanis.
          My summary is that if the Armenians even bothered to prepare the defense according to the 1955 textbook on sapper, the losses of their opponents would have increased significantly.

            With better organization, the Armenians could hold the territory longer and increase the number of Azeri losses, no more.
            As for the losses, the Armenians themselves write and come to this figure:
            On November 14 Mikael Minasyan accused Nikol Pashinyan on his Facebook page of hiding the number of our losses from the public. I will give a detailed quote from the post:

            “And the fact is that 5 days ago, the SNB reported to Nikol that as of now we have:
            2250 dead and trapped in the morgue
            1400 dead and not yet taken to the morgue
            1100 missing.
            4750 confirmed deaths, which, according to the document, were reported to the RA Prime Minister.
            4750 names, surnames and destinies.
            4750 families broken from grief.
            4750 extinguished hopes.
            4750 is not a number, it is our body and blood. A whole generation. Big City".

            Recently it became known that Anna Hakobyan is organizing New Year events for 4750 children aged 2-6 years, resettled from Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia. Not 4700 and not 4800 gifts.

            This is not a coincidence, but a cynical mockery.

            And today the residents of Stepanakert were forced to dismantle the New Year tree and the tents installed at the initiative of the wife of the Armenian Prime Minister Anna Hakobyan.

              I don’t argue about losses - Vicki looked. means 5000 and 3000 people. We were playing something different on roller skates, right? You are wrong about the possibility of holding the territory. There was an opportunity - yes, the goals of the Armenian elite were clearly different, and the training of the army was simply disgusting ...

          When the Turks turned on the UAV, the Syrians had a very hard week. sad Then they pulled together a bunch of air defense and worked out some methods. In fact, the UAVs saved the Idlib gadyushnik from collapse within 10-15 days. Stopped the SAA offensive. They defended the M4 highway - which is still under the broads (it is on it that ATGMs are blown up by armored personnel carriers from joint patrols), despite the fact that, according to the agreement, it should have been made free of any armed formations.


          since when have only air defense been fighting for the sky?


          We will cover each convoy with a squadron of planes, echeloned in height, which should change and patrol on the convoy 24/7? For as soon as the birds fly away, UAVs and loitering ammunition will arrive.

    modern drones


    Modern but not the most modern. TV2 despite a successful niche and solutions in general is a standard MALE for the first half of the 00s.
    Harops - 2005 (2007 already export) and with the use of technical solutions and unification with the even older kamikaze Harpi.
    Spikes are good, but not the best in the world.
    small company-platoon UAVs for adjusting art fire, lighting for guided art ammunition, missiles - this is again the norm for 10 years.

    The next level is swarms. These are projectiles like Hero or SwitchBlade. In fact, every infantry squad can (as long as it is expensive) shoot such things, without internal combustion engines (that is, there will be no noise and IR will not capture either) with an autonomy of 20-30 km of range and 30-60 minutes of flight.



    In the near future, they will be taught to independently search for goals, according to the set priorities. By analyzing the visual / TPV picture and loaded models. This is already practically achievable, but energy consumption and price are limited. But by the 30s, such UAVs will probably already be on sale.

          They write that 6 units are purchased, 3 are rented. There are also Israeli Herons. If you look at the RQ-7 (9 of them), it becomes clear where Bayraktar's design came from.
          It is not a secret at all that the Turks, shall we say, were "inspired" by the developments of the USA and Israel.
          They follow the path of China and other laggards. Therefore, the Turks cannot sell anything more or less new.

      Here is your home computer as a whole can solve this problem. Not in real time (and this is not so critical - that is, the post-capture task is solved simply at the software level) but they can. The main task is to squeeze this processing time to at least half a minute and at the same time the consumption so that it does not break through the ceilings.

      Modern systems solve even more complex problems. It remains to fit it into small size / consumption.

    Not at all. KSHU (KSHMU) are carried out in the same way in the field with the study of the real theater. But, yes, not "peshe on the machine". They are conducted "on the cards" mainly for one reason - they are the highest form of training and are carried out at the highest levels with the involvement of several genera and types of aircraft. The main thing will be worked out - interaction on the formation of a multi-level air defense system, electronic warfare, aerospace forces, etc. This is what the NKR lacked.
    Not focal exercises, but precisely on an operational-strategic scale, in order to develop a system of counteraction, interaction, new methods of struggle, etc. This is precisely the objectives of the command post, and not training the actions of individual crews.
    And I believe that it is being done quite rightly - we must first understand and study the problems and options for counteraction in the complex of influencing circumstances.

      I'm embarrassed to ask, who will play for the blue in the sandbox? If the players divide into teams, then the "reds" who will fight off drone attacks will win. In order to prepare for the wars of the future, you need only one little girl to play for the "blue", who will simply say: "Alice, launch the drones and put on cartoons."

    The main topic of the Zapad-2021 strategic command-and-staff exercise will be the fight against drones and cruise missiles. This was reported by the press service of the Western Military District.

    Actually, two topics should be worked out:
    1 Counteracting drone strikes
    2 Massive use of drones against enemy targets
    Only in this perspective should the teachings take place in order to understand what you are opposing.

      Tasks are set, but this is not a priority, since this is a counteraction in local wars. For the Russian Federation, long-arm missiles are now important, to cover any base, headquarters, at a distance. Israel's experience is closer to the Russian Federation, covering collection points or cells before they get out of the UAV. Although Israel is bombing there, they know.))
      And this task could be undertaken by the allies in the CSTO, but they only count money there. And so the Design Bureau of the Russian Federation is already loaded with strategic projects, but nobody writes off the BLPA. Development is underway in this direction, but no one will show them just like that, for the sake of beautiful cartoons. Yes, and arming the Russian allies who lie on the stove and save their chairs by unleashing wars, is also not going to. Joint exercises also pass, but as we see in vain, there is zero sense.

The NKR-Armenians did not think that Azerbaijan would be demolished immediately, but it would take a long time to decide at what time to attack, before lunch or after.)) But seeing the determination, the NKR-militia realized that there was no chance one could cope, they waited for the Armenian troops, but there was panic. hi

    Another theatrical performance at

    To be honest, I don't imagine a "strategic"

    to tell the generals how best to spend
    people's money?

    "the fight against cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles" UAVs are becoming a real danger. Armenians had 60% of losses from unmanned vehicles.
    I foresee that these UAVs will become cheaper and become "favorite toys" of various terrorist organizations.
    Already now, without much difficulty, Aliexpress can buy radio-controlled aircraft models, and attach 2-3 sensible checkers to it and a combat drone is ready

    For the Russian Federation, long-arm missiles are now important, to cover any base, headquarters, at a distance.

    I agree, but in order to cover you need to know where to cover, for this you need information. Azerbaijan had information about the location of control points, which can be obtained even using the so-called satellite maps on the Internet, and on the Wikimapia website you can find out the names of the air defense system. But for more accurate aiming, a more accurate infa with a video sequence is also needed, such as an enemy reconnaissance group on satellite images, you will not see it, you need to watch it in real time.
    It is possible to direct a long-arm missile at stationary objects, but at mobile missile systems it is already more difficult and this is not the task of the UAV.
    Even with intercontinental weapons, and someone said we will throw calibers, who will indicate the target, in the same America. Spy satellites only.

    But we must not forget about close combat, and this is already becoming the prerogative of using UAVs to obtain target designation.

      This is true, but a swarm of UAVs cannot be used for a long time, and how long it is. The conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is an example of how it is impossible to do, there, in fact, the UAV launch points were at a shot range with impunity, there was no reconnaissance. A competent army should not allow such a competent army, even if the MLRS comes within the range of a shot, then they cover it if the reconnaissance worked on time.
      Here's an example of low intensity melee combat, with minimal calculation.

          How and on what will you invisibly deliver such a number of drones? Here is reconnaissance and target designation, pinpoint strikes, while they will be in perspective. And the swarm is still primitive. You must understand that the swarm is an analogue of artillery, which they try not to admit to the radius of the shot, otherwise a full one is waiting on the line of fire. And the swarm of drones, in fact, the same as the MLRS becomes, the circle is closed. If reconnaissance is carried out and target designation is given to the launcher of the MLRS, then there will be the same swarm, only from cluster missiles.
          Here is an example, when a MLRS (a swarm of UAVs) was admitted to the radius of the shot.

          ps. cons are not mine.

    From extreme to extreme. After Karabakh and Idlib, they impose on us a "fight" with drones, the emphasis of future exercises is also shifting to this struggle, and hence the resources of the defense industry. Those. against small, low-flying and slow-flying targets. But in reality, there will be a struggle with classic supersonic aircraft flying at ultra-low altitudes, or in the stratosphere at a cruising supersonic speed. Why are we being told horror and the problem with the UAV of a potential enemy? When there are more real threats to air defense and missile defense.

      On both VIDIOs, the drones do not go astray at once, you have to shoot in long bursts (if there were not 2-3 drones, but let's say 5-6, then some of them would have flown to the target,) there is a reason for this, it is called - at a given shooting distance the dispersion diameter of the projectiles is significantly larger than the target. This is difficult to fix neither now nor in the future, since the UAV can be made even smaller and, most importantly, faster. This begs the question of the suitability of machine guns and automatic cannons to combat such targets.

    The main topic of the Zapad-2021 strategic command-and-staff exercise will be the fight against drones and cruise missiles. This was reported by the press service of the Western Military District.
    It depends on what we cover. If the object is located at a distance from the enemy, then there, then there the range of weapons is one, if the front edge, then another. An object in the depths of its own territory will be attacked by either CD or heavy UAVs. The cost of these gizmos is either comparable or higher than the cost of an anti-aircraft missile. The discussions mainly concern the defense of the leading edge, which means that these are small-sized and inexpensive UAVs to manufacture. One of the books devoted to the development of the BM-13 told about an interesting episode. A group of military men examines the BM-13 at the training ground. One of the eminent gunners notices with indignation. I'm used to shooting and hitting the target, what kind of cannon it is from which it is impossible to hit the target from the first shot. Very little time passed and a new technology for those times showed its fiery grin near Orsha. In the case of a UAV, it will be more effective to cover the whole sector at once, only instead of antenna launchers .. It will not matter how many there are. Such a "shot" is cheaper than a UAV. If you go down to an infantry unit, then this small-sized portable installation with an optics detector will be able to work both in the sky and on the ground, but practice will tell you how to destroy the detected UAV.

    I remember when I served in the urgent division headquarters I was mobilized for the command post. It took more than an hour to withdraw from the place of permanent deployment and line up in a column.
    As I understand, missiles have already covered us, we could not continue

    And we understand that your division earned "bad" money to withdraw from the area. But not all divisions are at this level. By the way, when was that? In the dashing 90s? :)

    pozhzhuzhat, fingers in cards, sorry, cards, poke, well, the banquet at the end. Pay attention to how the technique is put on the exercises, according to the Armenian model, in the correct caponiers, dug even under the king of peas, no, rather, with the secretary-maize, and even in an even row, for the convenience of the enemy and ostentatious disregard for death. Ugh, disgusting. And we do not have such drones that can be used as targets, there are targets, but these are just mini-helicopters.


    Eh, look at you, how to "pozhzhzhite" 5 days without sleep, maximum 2 hours in the afternoon, then you will refuse the banquet!
    How the technique was put - noticed. It was with this that the Armenians had order. Perfectly opened shelters for equipment, in "full height", can be seen tore off by a bulldozer. The day before, the sides were reinforced. Not a single grass has grown yet, the soil is fresh. They had trouble with disguise, that's for sure!
    And the battery is placed in an "even row" for the convenience of the SOB, to make it easier to build a fan of the battery. The enemy does not care, he saw one gun, and see others, a distance of 10-20 meters does not solve anything.
    Drones for targets in Russia are a whole industry. Maybe a dozen models. For each air defense system. There are even supersonic ones.

    Well, let's - estimate the costs of destroying an infantry division (fortified) with some UAVs. Moreover, the division will be covered by aviation and air defense.

    In general, the entrenched division not only with UAV toys, but the entire artillery and aviation of the army, and even with the involvement of the RGK, cannot be destroyed. Tenacious infantry, buried in mother earth. You can destroy at most one battalion stronghold and enter a tank regiment into the gap. Consumption - 2 tactical ammunition, 20 kT each, air detonation. Well, according to the combat regulations. Otherwise, you will gouge for days, and development is zero. This is if we are talking about destruction. Suppressing fire resources and displacing them in the front sector is another matter. Complete destruction (50% and more losses) is impossible and unnecessary.

    I did not see panic. Rather, on the contrary - carelessness. Poor camouflage, no observation, lack of training in drugs for the command "air", poor dispersal. But it heals quickly. There would be a military leadership in place.
