Russian military base in Tajikistan will be strengthened with portable anti-aircraft complexes

19

The Russian 201st military base in Tajikistan will receive the Verba portable anti-aircraft systems. The decision to supply MANPADS has already been made.


The Ministry of Defense has decided to strengthen the anti-aircraft component of the Russian military base in Tajikistan. To this end, the Russian military will receive the Verba MANPADS, one of the most modern portable anti-aircraft systems. The military department explains its decision by the need to combat low-flying planes and helicopters, as well as drones in the mountainous terrain, which Tajikistan abounds in.

The strengthening of the air defense of the military base is also associated with the withdrawal of the American military contingent from Afghanistan and the possible threat of a military conflict with the Taliban aspiring to power (the Taliban is a movement banned in Russia).

As they say "News", citing the Ministry of Defense, recently, extremists have increasingly begun to use commercial and homemade drones in combat. It is to combat them that the Verba MANPADS will be supplied.

To intercept larger targets, the Russian military base is covered by the S-300PS air defense missile system, which was delivered from Russia in 2019 and is already on alert. The main task of the division is to cover the Russian military base from air attacks, as well as air defense of the Central Asian region of collective security, together with the air defense of Tajikistan.

    "Verba", of course, is good ... But, doubts about the possibility of targeting and fixing a small-sized target are plagued by doubts. what

      I think it is not efficient and expensive.

        Nothing is cheaper with us at the moment. request
        And about "efficiency", I wrote above.
        "Baikal" needs to be finished. And ammunition for it, with remote detonation.

      And not you alone! winked Moreover, with 9M336 and for UAVs with EDU, it is already difficult to use, even despite the possibility of using the survey 1L122, with a target detection range of 40-80 km.

    I’m never sure that we will not have to iron the border areas of Afghanistan with our artillery and aviation. And that there will be no breakthroughs of liquid Tajik outposts from the adjacent side requiring a response from the RF Armed Forces.

      They are now.

        I was referring to major breakthroughs in the composition of hundreds, maybe thousands of militants.

          And there were such. In the 98th. Batken events. Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU).

            hi I cannot imagine how they would have succeeded without collusion with the Tajik authorities.

              Quite possible. For our 201st, it was also a surprise. They seemed to have entered through Badakhshan.

                Where it is not so important (already), they entered Kyrgyzstan from the Dzhirgital region. There are no roads from Badakhshan there. Walking them is not real. Most likely, they brought the stash to Kyrgyzstan in advance. They also left for the Jirgital region. The second time they went to Kyrgyzstan from Zeravshan. There are a couple of holes there, one of them, the most accessible and used.

    At least strange information.
    It seems to me that such weapons as MANPADS should be included in each company, not to mention larger units.
    Now, no one and nowhere without drones, how then without MANPADS?
    And on the base there should be a complete set, including "Armor".

        So there is not a word in the news that there are older complexes like needles. They simply cannot but be there) rather, rearmament as news is already difficult to submit normally)

      Maybe we are talking about re-equipment from the old-style complexes to the new Verba. It's just that the information was misrepresented.

    Most likely, these MANPADS calculations will drive around on the new Izhevsk Typhoon. And will they be able to shoot down drones, who knows ... I think some will be able

      Most likely, these MANPADS calculations will drive around on the new Izhevsk Typhoon.
      then it's easier, on the same Typhoon, to put the BM with the "Flexible-S"! By the way, a fairly universal solution, even on the "Tiger" was installed at one time (such as: 9M336 "Verba" or 9M342 "Igla-S" - in the complex of guided weapons BMO SAM "Gibka-S"), and to a heap: modifications -M5 "and" Gibka-M6 "designed to destroy low-flying air targets at speeds up to 400 m / s day and night, surface low-tonnage targets, moving and stationary modern and advanced tanks, other armored (BMP, armored personnel carriers) and small targets (such as Bunker, bunker), fortifications, manpower in shelters and in open areas.

    It is unclear whether the S-300PS should cover the needs of the Armor or the Torah, and not the willow MANPADS, the MANPADS are only good as an addition.
