"Can fight stealth aircraft F-35 and F-22": American magazine spoke about the Russian S-500 air defense system

39

Russia will soon put into service a new anti-aircraft system capable of fighting the American stealth aircraft F-35 and F-22. The S-500 new generation anti-aircraft system is being prepared for delivery to the Russian army. Mark Episkopos writes about this in his article for the American magazine The National Interest.


The newest Russian anti-aircraft system S-500 is completing tests and will soon begin to enter the Russian army, the author writes. In his article, he refers to a statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who announced the imminent entry of the S-500 into service.

Episkopos notes that the S-500 air defense system, compared to the S-400, with which the anti-aircraft regiments of the Russian army are armed, is much more advanced and has a number of capabilities that are not available in other anti-aircraft systems. The author claims that the new anti-aircraft system is capable of fighting hypersonic targets flying at speeds over Mach 5, as well as shooting down ballistic missiles at a distance of 600 km, while simultaneously hitting up to 10 warheads. In addition, the S-500 is capable of threatening low-flying spacecraft and satellites.

The author especially notes the ability of the S-500 to fight the fifth generation of American stealth aircraft. Episkopos calls the Russian anti-aircraft system "one of the most direct and powerful responses" to stealth-based stealth aircraft. According to him, the S-500 can fight the F-35 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor.

To summarize, the author reassures the Western reader that the S-500 is unlikely to become a mass anti-aircraft system and replace the S-400 in the Russian army. According to his version, the new air defense system will occupy "its own niche", covering especially important objects.

    Donkey, not the author! The С500 is not a replacement for the С400, but its addition, and it will fight against Ф35 and Ф22 only when these aircraft rise into near space, at least above the Pocket Line, in other cases, the C400 and our other air defense systems will extinguish the netells.

      In vain the Americans withdrew from the ABM Treaty. The adoption of the S-500 air defense system means that work has already begun on the creation of the S-600.

      Well, how do you think that the American edition will upset the reader with the fact that even the c400 can cut stealth, as in logging? )))

        Is there at least one aircraft that was shot down by S-300 or S-400? Everyone saw how the S-300 was destroyed by Harup. Recently, the Iron Dome was overwhelmed by a drone. In February 2018, the S-200 bombarded the Israeli F-16 due to a pilot error and the IL-18 with friendly fire. But about the successes of the S-300, 400,500 only advertising. And this is not convincing.

      Well, as it were, but not quite so! starting from Karman lines, 500s will be hitting on BR and ICBMs. at launch ranges, not 600, but as a minimum of 4-5 thousand km !!!

      in other cases, the C400 and our other air defense systems will be suppressed.

      =======
      In order to "extinguish stealth" you need an L-band (or more "long") radar. In the S-400, these functions are performed by the 96L6E all-altitude detector. I think it will also be included in the S-500!
      PS I dare to suggest that in terms of organizational structure, the S-500 will be close to the S-300V: Ie. a pair of "long" tractors with a pair of anti-missiles (anti-satellite / anti-ballistic missiles) and a pair of the usual MAZs with 4 long-range 40N6E containers on each.
      For reference: 40N6E is the "maximum" SAM for the S-400 and the "minimum" (to combat aerodynamic targets) for the S-500.
      PPS I desperately want to live up to the time when I will be able to see the S-500 "in real life"! And at the same time see how the "forecast" came true !!! hi soldier

        In 1891, the first experimental shooting at air targets took place in Krasnoe Selo. Tied balloons and horse-drawn balloons were used as air targets.

    Not that I didn't know the capabilities of Russian air defense systems.
    While all this is in the field of speculation.
    As good as it is, but in theory.
    The difference between theory and practice is very great, but what will happen under the pressure of an equal opponent?
    We have already seen how the Patriot showed itself on the field. We saw a far from ideal structure, which includes Russian complexes, there are a lot of jambs.

        Why do you need air defense if they know that Russia doesn't need them for nothing. But there must be fear that knocks the sheep into the herd. So they came up with the idea that Russia wants to eat them, but in fact they are afraid of everyone in here and follow one another.

    Strange article, everything is upside down.
    Stealth can also destroy c75 (the Yugoslavs have shown), the main thing is to detect and guide the missile.
    And for this there are other means not necessarily included in the complex itself.

    It has not survived, it has already been shaved from a cow (well, as with a stonehenge).
