Military Review

By the end of the year, another C-400 regiment will appear in the army.

The aerospace defense forces are preparing to adopt the next regimental anti-aircraft missile systems C-400.

According to the Almaz-Antey State Specialty Design Bureau, which produces this weapon, the transfer to the military of a new batch of air defense systems should take place before the end of this year. If force majeure circumstances do not intervene in the plans of industrialists, within four months, five Regiments of Triumph will cover the sky over Russia. In the meantime, four such units carry combat duty. Two of them are located north and east of Moscow, one each - in the Kaliningrad region and in the Far East.

Although a reliable cover of the capital sky remains the most important function of the Armed Forces, the Defense Ministry decided that the anti-aircraft arsenal should be updated in other Russian regions. A few months ago, Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force Viktor Bondarev explained how this year they will carry out this task with reference to the "400". According to the general, in 2012, the C-400 military fleet will increase by three divisions. One military has already been transported to Nakhodka. The second decided to put in the suburbs. Another one is in the 1-th command of the Air Force and Air Defense.

Simply put, the geography of the combat duty of new missiles is expanding to the East and North-West Russia. As for the protection of the airspace around Moscow, the “fresh” division was reinforced by the C-400 regiments already in Dmitrov and Elektrostal.

What kind of weapon is this can be judged by the results of its tests at the Ashuluk and Kapustin Yar test sites in the Astrakhan Region. The complex, nicknamed Growler in the West - "Growler", managed one missile to hit a target flying at a speed of 2800 meters per second, and the other to reach an object at an altitude of 56 kilometers. The combat characteristics of "Triumph" is really impressive. At the same time, no other air defense system is capable of working on several targets within a radius of 400 kilometers. It is no coincidence that C-400 show an increased interest abroad, especially in China. But the designers of "Triumph" achieve more. The Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern is now completing state tests of a new missile for the C-400, which will operate in the near space.

In fact, this system can use at least seven missile options. Three of them - 48Н6Е, 48Н6Е2 and 48Н6Е3 - are suitable for combat shooting from both the 400 and the advanced C-300М. The ammunition with the designation 48H6DM specially modified under the "Triumph". Missile control is based on the principle of semi-active radar homing with correction. The industry is preparing to release two more ammunition - 9М96Е and 9М96Е2. It uses active radar homing. But the range of these missiles is only for 135 kilometers.

In mid-February, it became known that a long-range anti-aircraft guided missile was developed for the C-400 system with the possibility of hitting targets at a distance of more than 250 kilometers. The arrival of the troops of its first production models is expected at the end of this year.

As for the Moscow air defense zone, more than two dozen modern Pantsir-С1 anti-aircraft missile-cannon complexes are deployed there. Calculations for them have already been prepared at the Air Defense Training Center in Gatchina. They will be in combat duty together with the four-hundred divisions and at the same time cover them. Thus, the security of the capital sky will be provided by a mixed grouping of long-range combat weapons - more than 200 kilometers - and the closest - to 20 kilometers - actions.

The leaders of the Defense Ministry are confident that with the C-300 and C-400 systems, the Pantsiri rocket-gun cannon, and the C-500 complex in the future, the country's aerospace defense will receive a multi-functional echeloned zone ring cover system for the city. Moreover, this system will be able to protect Moscow even from attacks from orbit.

    The interval between detection and fire varies from a few seconds to several minutes. The S-400 can shoot down targets at a distance of up to 400 km and an altitude of up to 60 km. The full S-400 complex is capable of simultaneously detecting 36 targets and controlling the rate of 72 missiles. It is not yet planned to sell the system to the international market, which gives Russia an undeniable advantage in protecting against any air threat for at least the next 20 years.

    Will they ever decide what range of destruction this complex has? When it was only tested, missiles with a range of 400 km were not even planned, i.e. the S-400’s range was 200 km, although on every corner they squeaked that it could shoot down targets at a distance of up to 400 km. They still say 30 km in altitude, but what about the same long-range missile, with a range of defeat in height 185 km? And even without it, it turns out he can get 56 km. And now when it became reliably known about long-range taxi missiles, they began to say that it hit targets at a distance of 250 + km. And the same article states that 400 still shoots at 400 km. Journalists, their mother ...

      There is a confusion of concepts. The maximum detection range is one value, the range of guaranteed detection is another value, the missile range is the third.

      s-400 missiles
      48N6 -150km
      48N6M - 200km
      48N6DM - 250 km
      Missile mass ~ 1800 kg, warhead mass 145 kg

      9M96 - 50km
      9M96M - 135km
      rocket weight ~ 400kg, warhead weight 24kg

      these missiles have long been in service, the fate of the last 40N6 long-range missile with a range of 400 km is currently unknown

      so that everything is known, but really the journalists, their mother

        To defeat the target at an altitude of 56 km, apparently, 40N6 was used.

    Yeah, we have Russia ends beyond the Moscow Ring Road, it’s good that at least one regiment was found for the Far East.

    The main thing is to protect Moscow, and let others save themselves.

    Good news for the Moscow state.
    The main thing is to protect Moscow, and let others save themselves.

    And not that Moscow has the highest population density in Russia, and even one regiment did not want to in the Far East. You can imagine what a regiment with -400 is, if one complex can:
    The interval between detection and fire varies from a few seconds to several minutes. The S-400 can shoot down targets at a distance of up to 400 km and an altitude of up to 60 km. The full S-400 complex is capable of simultaneously detecting 36 targets and controlling the rate of 72 missiles.

    Etc.

      The complex most likely means a division, i.e. 1/2 shelf.

    3 divisions per year - still cannot reach the normal level of production, although they have been supplying S-5 for 400 years now.

    I'm interested in something else. When will they begin to cover 12 targets on the territory of Russia declared by the Pentagon as targets of a preemptive strike? By the way, Moscow is not there. And then I live next to one of them and I know that all the missile points located around him are eliminated. Sincerely.

        If you have a passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation, and you live in Russia, then I will upset you. For the United States, Russia is a bone in the throat, or one big target, so relax, and you have enough minutes.
