New mobile air defense regiment will cover the airspace in western Russia

A new mobile air defense reserve regiment has been created in the Western Military District; it will close the airspace over St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region. Reported by "News" with reference to the Ministry of Defense.


The new regiment was formed as part of the 6th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense; the regiment is armed with the Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile and cannon systems. The formation of the unit that will carry out the tasks of the army's mobile reserve was completed at the end of 2020.

The creation of a new air defense unit is an asymmetric response to the strengthening of NATO in the Baltic. In particular, for the deployment of shock drones and long-range air-launched missiles there.

- writes the edition.

As explained in the military department, the new mobile regiment is a "reserve", and, if necessary, will be transferred to the most dangerous areas on its own or with the help aviation... The main direction is the Baltic countries and Poland. If necessary, the regiment can close the airspace of Belarus as a union state. The wheeled chassis allows the complexes to cover long distances, take positions and "from the wheels" engage in battle.

It is noted that the regiments fully equipped with Pantsir-S air defense missile systems are a fairly new phenomenon for the Russian air defense, the first experimental regiment was formed in the 1st Special Purpose Air Defense and Missile Defense Army deployed in the Moscow region at the end of 2018. Earlier, the Ministry of Defense made a decision to include mobile reserve regiments in each army of the Air Force and Air Defense.

    Question. How will the Pantsir regiment fully cover Belarus or an entire region in the Russian Federation, so that in terms of the height of defeat the Pantsir will finish off by 15 km, and in range up to 20?
    Or is the article simply written, and, nevertheless, the regiment will be integrated into the air defense system with longer-range complexes?

      Apparently, it meant that the regiment is not geographically tied to a specific area (like ordinary air defense units on the same "air defense ring road" A-181 / A-120) and can be deployed anywhere in the West Military District (more precisely, in the area of ​​responsibility of 6 th A Air Force and Air Defense).

        Strengthening the air defense of a direction or object is good. Plus there is a military one. On the western border, I think, they are not taking measures to strengthen the defense in vain, but, as you know, wars are won not by defense, but by an energetic offensive. The Baltics are the gateway. But the Russian Federation will certainly not go first in them.

      Very simply, it will come to Belarus by road or will be transported by air.

      How the Armor Regiment will fully cover Belarus or an entire region in the Russian Federation

      One regiment is not able to do this, but to STRENGTHEN an existing air defense grouping in any direction, so yes, it is in its power

        STRENGTHEN an existing air defense grouping

        for example, 20 Carapaces for ammunition in 240 missiles and with a probability of hitting 0,9 will be able to reflect up to 210 targets.
        The last frontier for maintaining the stability of the air defense of a region

      Phrase
      If necessary, the regiment can close the airspace of Belarus as a union state.
      does not carry any semantic load, so for the catchphrase in the report.
      The assignment to cover a separate point object is nothing more.

                  No one will say that any air defense systems are being put on alert.
                  And the regiment, the brigade never in full force on the b / d is not put, always in any case no more than 1/3. Like aviation, a duty link, a squadron. War is not and the resource of technology is not infinite.

                      Will not be attracted, but attracted. And not all, but only parts of the first line, the rest are ready three. Moreover, military air defense units are not involved in the b / d. And these are just them.

      It is guarded by SECURITY structures, and the air defense only COVERED. And it's good that these regiments were deployed at the beginning in the West, and not in the South, otherwise there would be "jokes" about "guarding" Putin's palace "

          One of the best in its segment. There is no such thing as a super universal and ultimate weapon.

    A mobile air defense regiment has already been deployed near Moscow. It includes only 2 Armor divisions - a total of 12 installations. I am generally surprised by the 6 Armor per division. In fact, it is just a BATTERY! So why is this proud to be called a division - to raise the ceiling of the officer corps?

    In fact, mobile air defense regiments are a necessary thing, but at the same time they must include at least one Vityaz medium-range air defense division in their composition, which is already ready for production (for the first time, you can use the S-300PS finishing off your resource).

      On my C-125 division - these are 4 launchers, one radar station, one control cabin (that is, a division is one simultaneously fired target, two missiles aimed at it). Plus TPM, shelters, tractors, trailers and semi-trailers (with the same diesel power plant), etc.

      Yeah, and I'm talking about that, a mobile reserve for the protection of the country's top officials and with them in the town .... And the fact that first of all it is necessary to cover the military-industrial complex and infrastructure is from the topic, but why, we will burn it in the furnace anyway .. wars

    Well, that's right, and the C-200 also had a starting battery (up to 6 launchers), radar, cockpit, tzm-ki. And in the S-300 divisions it is similar - a starting battery, an electronic battery and other support.
    But with Armor, everything is easier - there is a radar - right on the car - "all in one" - there are no additional radars in the division - just 3 batteries of 2 Armor + apparently TZMki and MTO vehicles.
