Upgraded S-300PM-2 air defense systems will cover the southern direction

11

The Russian Ministry of Defense plans to strengthen the air defense of the southern direction, as one of the most dangerous. The decision to re-equip the anti-aircraft missile regiments in the south of the country has already been made.


The southern direction is currently considered one of the most dangerous. Here is the Black Sea with US ships, Ukraine, which has been declaring war with Russia for seven years, the Caucasus and Georgia, longing for NATO, Turkey with imperial ambitions and much more. Recently, the Black Sea region has intensified aviation Alliance, reconnaissance planes and strategic bombers circling the Russian borders.

Against this background, a decision was made to strengthen the air defense of the southern direction. As part of this program, the outdated S-300PS systems, which are still on alert along with the new S-400 and S-350, will be removed from service and replaced with the updated S-300PM-2 air defense systems. So far, nothing has been reported about the timing of the rearmament.

As they say "News" citing military sources, the modernized anti-aircraft systems S-300PM-2 will cover the southern direction, including the Crimea, the Caucasus, the Rostov region, etc.

The S-300PM-2 air defense system is a deep modernization of the S-300 systems. The first systems were delivered to the troops in the mid-2010s. The updated air defense system differs from the "classic" S-300 in improved combat capabilities, increased noise immunity, new equipment that allows the S-300PM-2 to be included in a single control loop. The anti-aircraft system received a new multifunctional radar, a mobile command post, a guidance station and new missiles. The system ensures reliable engagement of air targets at ranges of up to 250 km.

    Why write if even the plans are not.

      Actually, first of all, they will mainly go to the Rostov region, and the next modifications, like the C400, will go to other places listed ...

    Yes, it seems that the S-300PS is no longer in the southern direction, with the exception of only the 7th military base (there in Gudauta there are 1 or 2 PSok divisions).

      Abkhazia does not have the S-300 in service. They do not have any air defense systems at all, only MANPADS, Shilka and ZU-23-2

        Moreover, its deployment was officially announced on August 11.08.2010, XNUMX.
        We have deployed the S-300 system on the territory of Abkhazia. It, in cooperation with the air defense systems of the ground forces, solves the tasks of air defense of the territory of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

        The positions of "peacetime" are also known - satellites see everything:
        One division is in the Gulripsha area, the second in the New Athos area.

    As far as I understand, the S300PM2 is an off-powered S300PM / PS with the replacement of some components according to a ten-year-old project.
    Those. also far from being a "miracle of technology"

    The stock of S - 300 complexes for modernization is considerable, so they will still serve.
