"Cover the Northern Sea Route": Coastal missile systems "Ball" deployed in the Arctic

56

The Northern Sea Route will be covered by the Bal coastal missile systems, and the Russian Defense Ministry has made a fundamental decision to deploy the complexes along the Northern Sea Route. Reported by "News" with reference to sources in the military department.


As the newspaper writes, the Ministry of Defense has decided to deploy in the Arctic coastal missile systems (BRK) "Bal". To date, the deployment has already begun, the first complexes have been placed on Franz Josef Land, they have already taken up combat duty. In the future, it is planned to deploy a ballistic missile complex "Ball" along the entire Northern Sea Route. According to the plans of the military, the Ball missile complex, together with the Bastion complexes previously deployed in the Arctic, will take control of almost the entire coastal zone.

Details of further deployment are not provided. Earlier it was reported that at the end of last year, the needs of the Ministry of Defense for the supply of the coastal complexes "Bal" and "Bastion" were closed by 74%.

The Ball coastal defense missile system was put into service in 2008. Included in the coastal defense forces, it is intended to protect territorial waters, naval bases, coastal infrastructure and antiamphibious defense of the coast.

One complex includes a command and control command post, as well as up to four vehicles with launchers equipped with an X-35 anti-ship missile with a range of 120 km, an X-35E missile and an X-35U missile - 260 km. Each machine has 8 missiles in special containers. In addition, the complex includes four transport and handling machines designed to form a repeated full salvo. DBK "Bal" is located on the MZKT-7930 high cross-country chassis, which allows you to occupy firing positions on the unprepared coast.

    Honestly, I don’t know if there is a need for them to be there all year round ... Maybe it’s better to spend money on creating an air component of such a defense, it’s still more universal.

        If striped partners walk the NSR, it is only under the ice. Quite free and easy.
        They will also fly on a bomber every 10 years.
        BALS there for IBM (imitation of violent activity)
        Maybe they would still be useful on Novaya Zemlya, but not BALS, but Bastions.

      That's for sure, there may be difficulties with support in the winter. So far, no one in their right mind will go there in winter without the support of heavy icebreakers.

        The main difficulties will be so far with the fact that there is no enemy for anti-ship missiles. But over time, the traffic will grow, and while our military will gain experience in operating equipment in these conditions, it may be necessary to refine the equipment - i.e. while work and groundwork for the future.

          There would be just heavy drones to patrol the entire length of the path. And put the BALS at the entrance and exit.

            The Northern Sea Route is rather narrow, if you go deep along it, then you will not be able to go to sea, you will have to cut back along the coast. Again, it is necessary to follow the submarines - as the main means of reconnaissance, you will have to sow key places with sonar buoys and patrol them with submarines (it is promising to make them unmanned)

          1. Why should the freight traffic grow strongly?
          2. What goals will appear, even if the freight traffic grows for unknown reasons?
          aviation is much more relevant there, but when it grows up, then it makes sense to put them there, but for now the IDB ..

        we have already figured out a hundred times that in order to bring the NSR into that form, after which foreigners will go along it, money is needed, much more than for the construction of the Suez (and also the maintenance), and the flow will never even reach 10 percent of the Suez, stupidly in terms of geographic For reasons, most ports in the world through Suez are closer .. but about statements, they always declare something .. talk, do not roll bags .. they do not recognize the Crimea, they declare-III ..?

        There is nothing, one long-distance communication station remained at 26 km, near Khatanga, too, "burdocks" of locators on the tundra are lying around. In Khatanga, judging by the media, the runway has now been repaired, lengthened, apparently under the MiG-31 and Tu-95, although even Ruslan used to land there before, and brought two bridges across rivers for nearby villages.

    On the security front, should we consider threats first?
    Is the NSR threatened by the enemy from the air? Yes, the air defense of our military and energy facilities that do not belong to Western capital laughing , there is a need. Is there a surface threat there? Yes, no matter how much. Well, you can seal the entrance and exit of the DBK with air defense cover again, if there is any doubt about the reality of air strikes. But the main threat in those conditions is the underwater threat. Here she needs to be engaged. In Soviet times, this problem was partially solved, but the service life of those systems has expired, you need to start anew.

    The United States does not have a heavy icebreaker fleet, so they cannot send their surface ships into the ice, the Arctic is also well covered from the air, the number of aviation and air defense in the Arctic is increasing (MiG-31BM, C400, Pantsir-S2). But where they can get it is underwater.

      What is the perspective? A hundred years old? Who are the targets for these weapons? Someone else's transports? Landing ships? Battleships? Enemy aircraft carriers? Martians seeking to organize the export of Russian resources from the Arctic?
      What are these enemies doing in cold waters? Blocking the movement of our ships? Submarines will do just fine with this - cheap and cheerful. And Russia has nothing to oppose to this threat. That is, it is typical - we are looking for keys not where we lost them, but under a lantern, where it is light, even realizing that there are no keys there.
