The source spoke about the unification of the S-500 and S-550 air defense systems into a single missile defense system

27

The new S-550 anti-aircraft system is a "lightweight version" of the S-500 air defense system and is not intended to replace it. Both complexes will be combined into one network to provide anti-missile and anti-space defense.


As explained by a source in the defense industry, the words of which are quoted TASSThe S-550 air defense system is not a further development of the S-500 air defense system, it is essentially a "light version" with other combat missions. Both complexes will be included in a promising air defense platform being created in Russia and will cover strategic objects from hypersonic weapons... The new system, in addition to the S-500 and S-550, should also include the S-350 Vityaz air defense system and short-range anti-aircraft systems.

As conceived by Russian developers, the new air defense system will be capable of hitting absolutely all targets, including promising ones.

As previously reported, the new S-550 anti-aircraft system will specialize in the destruction of warheads of ballistic missiles and spacecraft, while it will not be designed to combat aircraft, helicopters and cruise missiles. For the first time, an anti-satellite weapon system is being developed as mobile rather than stationary. At the same time, there will be no sea version of the complex, its development is not planned. The complex will be armed with a hypersonic missile.

Russian troops plan to receive the first S-550 complexes in 2025, the development is at a high level of readiness. Statements of this kind make the United States nervous, since they will now have to make efforts to improve their missiles, and this is not only unnecessary funds, but also a waste of time in which Russia can take the next step and present a new, more advanced complex. As Rostec said earlier, no one is going to stop the development of new weapons, this work has been going on and will go on.

    Well, at least it becomes more and more clear than the shot down of THAT satellite

      So it was almost immediately known. A-235 Nudol shot down.

          This is elementary logic. The S-500 cannot shoot down the target at which the satellite was flying, Nudol can. The S-550 is a simplified version of the S-500.

            We do not know all the characteristics of these systems; they constitute military and state secrets. But what is known for sure is that "Nudol" is a stationary complex, and the S-500 mobile and satellite was shot down far from the positions of "Nudol".

              Where are these positions of "Nudol", I think the Moscow region is also not very widespread! Moscow and the Moscow region is understandable!

              Absolutely.
              ... The S-550 will specialize in the destruction of ballistic and orbital space targets, primarily in the destruction of nuclear warheads of intercontinental missiles. Typical targets for the future system include the American space drones X-37, as well as planning hypersonic units being developed in several countries.

              - said the first informant.

              Both informants clarified that the S-550 will be an improved version of the S-500, but with a specialization in intercepting ballistic and orbital targets at significantly greater ranges and altitudes. At the same time, the interception of aerodynamic aerodynamic targets (helicopters, aircraft and UAVs) will be removed from the tasks of the developed air defense / missile defense system.

              To intercept such targets (orbital and ballistic - ed.), The S-550 will include a long-range multifunctional radar capable of detecting warheads and space objects at an ultra-long range

              - added the second informant.

              Work on the S-550 is at an advanced stage of research and development. It should be recalled that in 1981-1988, a mobile short-range intercept missile defense system S-550 was already being developed, along with the S-375. In 1986, Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and US President Ronald Reagan agreed in Reykjavik (Iceland) to close a number of projects. In 1988, all work on the S-550 was stopped, and in 1992, the entire material base of the landfill was dismantled and the entire reserve created as a result of work on the project was destroyed. Thus, now Russia has to conduct development from scratch.

              It is only known for certain that Almaz-Antey several years ago, on New Year's Eve, released a poster on which the Nudol PU was drawn in a mobile version, the developer drew the poster, not Internet lovers

              What does this mean?
              The trajectory passed approximately over Plesetsk, they could well use Nudol. But if, nevertheless, the S-500 was involved, then we just had a huge breakthrough in rocket fuel, we were able to put it into a relatively small rocket into such an orbit, here not only the height but also the range. The rocket was not strictly vertical. Another breakthrough. We were able to destroy a point, high-speed target with a non-nuclear charge at such a height and range. Practically intercepting a hypersonic missile. There time does not go by minutes, seconds.
              And what's the difference with what complex it was slashed. The specialists thought about it. No wonder the Americans got so excited and started yelling that the satellite was intercepted 28 km from the ISS

      "Well, at least it becomes more and more clear than the shot down of THAT satellite"
      You can understand the Yankees' tantrum about this. Their seemingly invulnerable Kh-37V, launched into space for "peaceful" scientific purposes and maneuvering in the altitude range from 200 to 700 km, ended up in the affected area. The Russian is also peaceful, a scientific experiment with hitting a bull's-eye target nullifies their super-hopes ...

    The S-500 consists of three parts:

    General controls: command post 85Zh6-1, early warning radar 60K6.

    For transatmospheric interception, PBU 85Zh6-2, radar 76T6, PU 77P6 are used. The 77N6-N missiles seem to be a continuation of the 9M82MV missiles. Which are part of the S-300V4 complex.

    For work in the atmosphere, KP 55K6MA, 91N6AM radar, PU 51P6 are used. Uses 40N6M atmospheric rocket, which is also part of the S-400 complex. In fact, this is the modernized S-400.

    Accordingly, systems for interception in the atmosphere (KP 550K55MA, 6N91AM radar, PU 6P51) are being removed from the S-6. Which is logical. This work can be done by the S-300/350/400. The missiles are the same, the radar and command post are not very different.

    Always the same, in principle.
    When they need to knock out money, they are "afraid, afraid", give money to defend dermocracy all over the world.
    When they AGAIN need to beg for money, they ask for money for the "final defeat" of the enemy, in the name of striped ideals and something else ...

    Well, now it became clearer what kind of animal it would be, the S-550. A missile defense system to deal with, specifically, ICBMs. Such a mobile Nudol, in the dimensions of the S-500. Missile defense destroyers are already asking for it.

        To begin with, at least the Barents-Norwegian Sea, the Mediterranean-Atlantic and the Okhotsk-Pacific Ocean. Destroyers could be accompanied by corvettes or frigates with anti-submarine ships, if possible, hunter submarines, depending on the patrol area.

    Apparently they finally decided to say goodbye to the S-300. It turns out that the "long arm" is C-5XX, the "medium" is C350. Well, everything else is for their cover.
