TASS source: The Ukrainian command asks the United States to deploy several THAAD missile defense divisions in the Kharkiv region

103

The TASS news service comes out with an article in which, referring to an unnamed diplomatic source, it writes about a special initiative of the Ukrainian command in terms of deploying American weapons in the country.


According to the source TASS, the Ukrainian authorities turned to the US administration with a request to build a missile defense system in eastern Ukraine. Thus, it is stated that Kiev is asking the Americans to place THAAD complexes in the Kharkiv region.

Recall that the Kharkiv region borders on the Russian Federation.

The request of the Ukrainian authorities to the United States contains statements about the need to deploy several THAAD divisions in the Kharkiv region at once, along with AN / TPY-2 radar systems. Such radars in the X-band (centimeter wavelengths) make it possible to monitor airspace at a distance of several hundred kilometers. It is believed that the maximum range for monitoring the THAAD radar system reaches 1 km.

The THAAD missile defense system outside the United States is deployed in Japan, the Republic of Korea, and also in the United Arab Emirates. The other day, American anti-missiles, as stated in the command, intercepted a Houthi missile, which was allegedly fired at one of the facilities of the UAE oil industry.

To date, one THAAD complex, together with the mentioned version of the radar, is estimated at at least $ 2,7 billion.

Recall that a few months ago in Ukraine they discussed the possibility of acquiring the Iron Dome complex from Israel. In Israel, this initiative was left unanswered, and just the other day the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense had to declare that Israeli systems were allegedly not suitable for building a missile defense system on Ukrainian territory. They found an excuse... If the US refuses to deploy THAAD, then a proven version of explaining the situation for Kiev, it turns out, already exists - and these complexes "will not work."

      THAAD is unlikely to be delivered to them, but the Patriot 2 and 3 air defense systems, as well as the Hawks, may well have this stuff from the United States in bulk, but the first ones are quite expensive and rare for such deliveries.

        They dragged their Patriots from Turkey, despite the fact that the Turks are members of NATO, but here they will drag entire complexes into some dill sump with an indefinite status? I strongly doubt it. These skachidopotites, like the Afghan homeless people in their time, were given MANPADS, that's all for a short time. They didn't go for more. They'll still be written off.

          And you have no doubt - at one time they said the same about the massive deliveries of Javelins and other small arms and artillery that Ukraine would not wait - it would be the same with the Patriots, since the complexes are not new, but for some profitable barter, let's say shareholdings in Ukrainian companies.

            Come on, you. How long will the Ukrainian army last in the event of a war with Russia? Month? Or like the Afghan army for two weeks? Do you think that the mattresses are ready to put complexes in order to be controlled, or in order that they would be in the hands of Russia within a few days? Ukraine is a bargaining chip for them and they are not faced with the task of preserving this sub-state at any cost. Partisanism, but it is possible, I do not immediately consider, because. dragging around the caches with the "Patriots" is not a good idea, but the Stingers and Javelins are just right for guerrilla warfare, so the supplies correspond to the intended nature of the hostilities.
            PS- In the event of a war, the shares of Ukrainian companies will cost less than chupa chups. So - "Patriot for shares" is a dubious exchange, don't you think?

        The problem is that everything that the United States can supply to Ukraine can be instantly compromised by our weapons in the event of a hot phase in the Donbass. And the states are very sensitive and scrupulous about such issues ... so Banderlog will not "go in" again.

          This is how I explain America's persistent refusal to participate in the "Tank Biathlon". What if the "best army on the planet" on the "best Abrams in the world" will be left far behind in clouds of dust, say, by the Kazakhs on the T-34? lol

          And one more question with the delivery, or rather non-delivery of these complexes.
          And if they still put it on, will they put it on "with staff" or will they just give it to the skakuas?
          In the first case, this is no longer help, but the deployment of an American military base near the borders of the Russian Federation. Which contradicts the Ukrainian constitution (well, it's bullshit...) and in the event of a conflict, this base goes into the sunset (and this is the main thing). Sending an American military base to the Land of the Eternal Hunt has been discussed here many times and many options have been proposed, how this could end.
          And "without personnel" is to send your missile defense systems to no one knows where in which hands it is clear and the likelihood of discussing and proposing options is not reduced.

          So, it seems to me, they will give them "Chupachups" instead of missile defense.

            And in my opinion, everything resembles a tragicomedy: the Americans want to, but will not go for it, for the reasons voiced above. And the 404s demonstrate a total misunderstanding: their role and the depth of the “love” of the Anglo-Saxons for them. No one will provide them with advanced systems, no one .., we are looking for tons of examples in history: the Americans involved the whole of Eastern Europe and the Baltic states in the RAI program, providing air surveillance: they donated little, and then sold a lot. Gesheft was up to 8 times ... why do 404s think that they are more beloved wife recourse

              At first I thought - they really don’t understand (well, like, for example, a fifth-grader has a task on the movement of trains) or they have their own cunning Selyuk plan.

              And then I remembered our perestroika and the 90s.
              Humpback Dog sincerely did not understand, but at the same time he was ready to do anything to please the West. Not in vain, the earth is glassy to her, Thatcher said about him: "We do not have time to ask, but he himself already offers."
              And under the Sverdlovsk Drunkard, everything became easier for the West - "any whim for your money." The country began to resemble (the other day they showed) an auction from the movie "One at a time" with Dzhigarkhanyan, Kuravlyov and Brondukov (blessed memory to all three).

              I doubt that someone like the Humpback Dog is in power in Skakuasia. Rather, they sell out, as in the second option. But not like in the movie or in our 90s, but smartly, with Selyuk's cunning. As long as the people see that the "tops" are depicting movement, asking someone for something, everything is fine, work is in full swing, the defense is getting stronger.
              Meanwhile, somewhere in the silence of cozy offices....
              Solid uncles sit in comfortable armchairs, talking about something. And most often heard the words "How much?" and how much?"

      - It is believed that the maximum range for monitoring the THAAD radar system reaches 1 km.
      Small clarification - 1000 miles.
      And the complexes are designed to protect American facilities, which are not in Ukraine.
      For instance. the THAAD complex, located in the Republic of Kazakhstan, covers all American military bases on the peninsula, but leaves Seoul and the cities surrounding it unprotected. And this is almost half the population of this country,

          THAAD This is a missile defense system against BR, but its weak point is the inability to fight the CD and aviation. So it is unlikely that the Americans will want to see the burning THAAD and disgrace the whole world.
          On Monday, a diplomatic source told the agency that Kiev had asked the United States to deploy several THAAD divisions near Kharkov.

          THAAD is a ground-based mobile anti-aircraft missile system for high-altitude transatmospheric interception of medium-range and shorter-range ballistic missiles in the final section of the trajectory during the last minute of approaching the target.

          https://tass.ru/politika/13640279

          .Objectively, THAAD and the S-400 Triumph air defense system are conditional competitors. "Triumph" is primarily designed to destroy aerodynamic targets: aircraft, cruise missiles, unmanned vehicles. THAAD, on the other hand, is a system originally designed to combat short and medium-range ballistic missiles.

Do you know how much they cost and how much the same Saudi Arabia agreed on the purchase of THAAD PRO? Besides, the KR will easily knock out these THAAD. So it's useless and expensive.
              .Moscow. 29th of November. INTERFAX.RU - The United States and Saudi Arabia have signed a preliminary intergovernmental agreement on the supply of American THAAD missile defense systems to Riyadh for a total of $15 billion, CNBC TV channel reported, citing a representative of the State Department.

              The "letter of offer and acceptance of offer" signed this week is the first step towards a multi-billion dollar deal, he said. We are talking about the supply of Saudi Arabia with a total of 44 THAAD mobile ground-based anti-missile systems designed for high-altitude transatmospheric interception of medium-range missiles.

              Saudi Arabia and the United States began official negotiations on the supply of THAAD systems to Riyadh in December 2016.

              "Following the required congressional notices in 2017, followed by months of negotiations, the signing of the offer and acceptance letter marks a step towards protecting the United States and its regional partners from Iranian missiles," a State Department spokesman said on condition of anonymity.

            Or maybe instead of THAAD there will be medium-range missiles? Huh?
            The THAAD mobile missile defense system is designed to destroy ballistic missiles at ranges up to 200 km and altitudes up to 150 km. With its help, the first line of zonal missile defense will be created. The characteristics of the THAAD complex allow it to sequentially fire one ballistic missile with two anti-missiles according to the "launch-evaluation-launch" principle, that is, the launch of the second anti-missile will be carried out if the first does not hit the target. In the event of a miss of the second anti-missile, the Patriot air defense system is put into action, which will receive target designations from the GBR radar about the broken ballistic missile. According to calculations by American experts, the probability of hitting a missile with such a two-tier missile defense system will be more than 0,96.

      THAAD stands for Terminal High Altitude Area Defense. That is, it is a high-altitude transatmospheric interception missile.
      Brad and insanity!
      Does anyone in their right mind think that ballistic missiles will be fired at the Donbass? Moreover, strategic, not even medium-range. The same Iskander knows how to maneuver, he is a very tough nut to crack for the American system.
      This complex does not take aviation and cruise missiles, it was not created against them ...

        he just won’t take ICBMs, there the range of intercepted ballistic missiles is up to 3.5 thousand km, that is, not the entire medium-range spectrum (SD emip up to 5.5 thousand km).
        along the way they thought that THAAD on the Iskanders would work. but no. its trajectories are below the lower THAAD ceiling (the Iskander has a height of 40-50 km above its positions and then it descends and maneuvers at THAAD with a minimum emnip of 40 km and only next to itself)

          they can see for more than a thousand kilometers.

          And most importantly - why put such a complex in order to see if they already have a bunch of radars poked for this purpose. who see even further, and, most importantly, are not so close to the border.

      Not only does it cost so much, you also need to look at what it is intended for.
      And as everyone knows, THAAD is designed for exatmospheric interception of medium-range ballistic missiles. Against aerodynamic targets, i.e. aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, cruise missiles, the complex is not used.
      Here is the radar, then yes, it sees at 1000 km.
      And why do banderlogs need such an expensive and useless toy for them?

        THAAD can only intercept ballistic missiles. MLRS theoretically can, but it is unprofitable, very expensive anti-missiles and there are not so many of them. Smerch MLRS missiles, for example, are much cheaper and there can be a lot of them in a salvo.

        not capable. THAAD is not capable of operating on aerodynamic targets. This is an anti-missile complex for high-altitude atmospheric interception of short-medium-range missiles and their warheads. The THAAD anti-missile system has a homing head closed with a special heat-resistant fairing for the duration of atmospheric flight. This is necessary to reduce aerodynamic drag and protect the window of the homing head from aerodynamic heating. The fairing is reset only at high altitude.

BR "Iskander", as far as is known, do not rise above 40-50 km. Russia has no such conventional weapons, against which THAAD could come in handy. Therefore, the "news" is most likely a fake.

    and the muzzle of their face will not crack? Not "Patriots" or "Hawkeys", did you immediately want THAAD?
    Actually, why does the ukrovermacht need this complex? This is a missile defense system designed to intercept medium-range ballistic missiles. To hit aerodynamic targets (cruise missiles, aircraft, helicopters) THAAD is "not sharpened".

    In addition, THAAD is a rather expensive complex; for staff members themselves, it covers only the most important objects. Why should they drag such a high-tech, expensive and useless complex for Ukraine?
