India begins the deployment of the first complexes of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system

32

India has begun deploying the first S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems received from Russia. According to the Indian press, the first anti-aircraft systems entered service with the Indian army.


As reported by the Republic TV channel, India has begun deploying the S-400 complexes received from Russia on the western border, or rather, in the Punjab, where the first regimental set of air defense systems will be deployed. According to the TV channel, the next complexes will be delivered from Russia to India within "several weeks" and will be deployed along the line of actual control. However, not all complexes will be located in the west of the country, part of the S-400 will be sent to the east of India.

According to information provided by the Hindustan Times newspaper, on Tuesday, the Indian Air Force deployed the first division of the S-400 air defense system in Punjab. The complexes are designed to strengthen the country's defense potential against Pakistan and China.

At the moment, there is no exact information about how many complexes Russia has already supplied. In turn, Moscow does not comment on the publication of the Indian media on the supply of S-400 air defense systems to India in any way, there have been no official statements on this topic.

In November, the Indian Ministry of Defense announced that it welcomes the early delivery of the first regimental set of S-400 air defense systems and has already decided on its location on the border with Pakistan. In turn, the head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Dmitry Shugaev in mid-November this year announced the beginning of the implementation of the contract for the supply of S-400 air defense systems to India. According to him, Russia has begun supplying some elements of the system, but which he did not explain.

Recall that under the contract signed in 2018, India will receive five regimental sets of the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system. The end of deliveries is scheduled for 2024.

        What's wrong with that? The decision was made long ago and much earlier than it was made public. Well, the lieutenants were sent to Russia for training, too, not yesterday.

    That's okay, I think the Indians and the Chinese have come to parity in air defense systems and will not start a get-together, because it is fraught with both sides. yes

      Punjab is the border with Pakistan. Placing the S-400 in this valley is quite logical. Good security guarantee. now the Pakistani Air Force will need to seriously consider before violating Indian airspace.

      There is no parity in this area. No.
      In terms of equipping with modern air defense systems, the PLA is stepping on the heels of Russia and surpassing India many times over.

        The toucan is absolutely right, the minuses are sculpted for him in vain. In terms of the number of modern air defense systems, India is indeed much inferior to China.

    That I get wild numbers, a division of 4 missiles for 12 launchers, 48 ​​missiles. In a regiment of 8 divisions, 5 regiments 384 × 5 = 1920 missiles, without reloading. request

      Why 8 divisions per regiment? A division is usually the equivalent of a battalion. And there are usually five battalions in a regiment, or even three. We had a deployed MS regiment. There are three motorized rifle battles, one tank and one artillery battalion. Plus four separate companies.

      missiles in the regiment of 8 divisions

      Maybe in the Indian regiment and 8 divisions, but in the Russian from 2 to 3. So we need to cut 3-4 times the total number of missiles in the regiment.
      But it would be better as you wrote. wink

      One S-400 export division is usually 7-8 launchers. One S-400 regiment contains not 8 divisions, but 2 divisions.

      I figured out the eight divisional personnel, the dancing comes from the ability of the regimental command post of the S-400 air defense missile system to manage eight divisions.

      In reality, there are no more than 8 towed or self-propelled launchers in the missile launcher. There are two divisions in the salary

    According to the wiki, five regimental sets of air defense systems from 400 two-division composition are 8-12 transport launchers in each division, and accordingly, only 80-120 transport launchers in all five regiments, and with a target detection range of 600 km with such a number of air defense systems Indians can block the entire land border with Pakistan and China, the Gypsies have bought well

      Today 34 regiments 71 division 560 launchers. One regiment of 4 ex divisional composition and three regiments of 3 division composition. Until 2023 there will still be 3 C400 regiments and 4 C 350 regiments.

    India needs to break off its friendship with Small Britain and make friends with China and us and buy submarines from us, not from the French.

    India is a kind of client, not only is it a hodgepodge of suppliers, dancing with a tambourine and about the transfer of technology for free, but also in the case of its own crooked attempts to blame the supplier and manufacturer.

    Somehow everything is hidden. What does 5 regimental kits mean?
    The full complement S-400 regiment is -
    30K6E controls included
    - Command post (PBU) 55K6E based on Ural-5323 01.
    - Radar complex (RLK) 91N6E. Anti-jamming panoramic radar.
    - 6 anti-aircraft missile systems 98ZH6E
    Each consisting of:
    Multifunctional radar (MRLS) 92N6E with a range of 400 km.
    Up to 12 transport launchers (TPU) of type 5P85TE2 and / or 5P85SE2 on a trailer.
    So how many systems have India delivered?

        Usually these are 2-3 anti-aircraft missile battalions, automated control and communications facilities of the regimental level, as well as additional combat mode radars attached to them.

          Yes, only one air defense system. They disguise them this way, and from their own citizens, from those that cannot be disguised or hidden behind the line. You can see everything from the satellite

            For the S-300P / V and S-400, the term "SAM" is not used. Usually they write: "anti-aircraft missile system battalion" ...
            Zrdn is the minimum structural unit capable of conducting military operations independently for a short time. In the regimental structure, in addition to the fire, radar and communication and control facilities I have listed, there are also auxiliary units that ensure the daily performance of service and activities during the "special period."
