Production of missiles S-400 "Triumph"


Today, a situation has arisen where the presence of effective air defense and missile defense systems in a particular country gives it a considerable advantage in the military sphere. The new generation air defense systems make it possible to turn large areas of airspace into no-fly zones by the very fact of their presence. Anti-aircraft missile systems such as the S-400 "Triumph" can intercept various targets, including not only manned and unmanned Aviation, but also missiles of various types.

The full range of characteristics of missiles for the Russian S-400 systems is kept secret. Their secrets in terms of the production of missiles. However, recently the veil of secrecy in this regard has become less dense, including for the reason that the S-400 Triumph air defense systems have great export potential and are already being purchased by China, Turkey and India.

The program "Military Acceptance" on the TV channel "Zvezda" tells about the production process of anti-aircraft missiles for the S-400 complexes. In particular, it is reported about the casting of individual parts of the rocket in special furnaces. The work is carried out with a magnesium alloy, which is unique in a number of its characteristics. One of the important differences is its lightness.

One of the features of casting parts of the future S-400 Triumph air defense missile system is the need to get rid of slag. The presence of an overestimated percentage of slag in the finished alloy can negate all the painstaking work and make the final product "incompetent". Particles accidentally caught in the alloy are captured by a special magnesite filter. The resulting samples are tested for various kinds of impacts, including strength tests.

    Apparently now the quality will gradually grow into quantity. A few years and the "castle" will be closed to all regions of Russia.

      There is no perfect weapon. About "lock it up" It's very good. But the enemies are well aware of how it is possible to overload the missile defense system in certain areas. Close the centers, production will succeed. The entire vast territory, no.

    Such protection is not infinite and not absolute.
    New systems will be created... already being created!
    I would like to say that this is a natural process, but .... GUYS, LET'S LIVE PEACELY! It will only get better for everyone!

      Ordinary aluminium.

      Magnesium density 1 g/cm³
      Aluminum density 2 g/cm³
      It is unlikely that anyone will risk quality and weight for the sake of cheapness ...

      By the uniqueness of magnesium alloys, they have been used since the middle of the last century and there is nothing particularly unique in them, it will be unique when beryllium alloys begin to be used more massively, and we have negligibly little of it
      And according to the S-400 itself, air defense systems with such large missiles should be silo-based 50:% at least, and then if the missile is so expensive, then why carry 4 of them in a special vehicle, it is much more reasonable to carry one missile in small, less conspicuous cars .

    How much does one S-400 missile cost for Russia and for export? Thanks in advance.
