Building a multi-level air defense system of the RF Armed Forces in the special operation zone increases the efficiency of intercepting various targets, including precision-guided munitions

According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the effectiveness of the operation of Russian air defense systems is ensured thanks to the mixed battery of Buk-M3 and Buk-M2 anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM), which successfully hit all intended targets and retain all their operational characteristics. Moreover, they have excellent tactical and technical characteristics and a target engagement range of up to 200 km.


So, in the last month alone, during the course of a special operation, the troops of the Central Military District (CMD) involved in the special operation managed to shoot down up to 40 air attack weapons, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), shells of HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS), as well as ballistic missiles "Tochka-U" - tactical missile systems of Soviet production. All this made it possible to prevent civilian casualties, as well as to ensure the protection of the country's critical civilian infrastructure, the Russian defense ministry said in a statement.

It should be noted that all the personnel of the battery were awarded awards (medals of Zhukov, Suvorov and the medal "For Courage"), for courageous and selfless actions to ensure the protection of airspace in the area of ​​​​responsibility of air defense units of the Central Military District.

Recall that yesterday the RF Armed Forces destroyed an ammunition depot for the HIMARS MLRS near Dnepropetrovsk. There were more than 100 such shells. Also, thanks to the efforts of Russian air defense systems, it was possible to intercept an Excallibur guided artillery shell on the territory of the country (Sumy region). Also on the eve of the Russian Armed Forces, they repelled an attack by Ukrainian HIMARS near the village of Mirnoye near Kherson. Building a multi-level air defense system of the RF Armed Forces in the special operation zone increases the efficiency of intercepting various targets.

    Yeah ... "Excalibur" was intercepted the other day ... I don't know how.

      As I understand it, this is the minimum task for today, but if you look into the future, it turns out that exactly the same system needs to be built along the entire border from the Krasnodar Territory to the Murmansk Region.

      I don’t want to once again mention the “foreman of perestroika” and the “gravediggers of the USSR”, but it is precisely “thanks” to their efforts that we now have what we have - the NATO bloc is at our borders and we have no other way out how to build a layered air defense system along the entire border.
      As the saying goes. "Arrived."

        The ongoing successful shelling of the ZNPP shows that any air defense is surmountable.
        It can only bring down a certain percentage of missiles. This means that the remaining percentage is not brought down.
        The experience of Israel is indicative. He probably has. the best air defense in the world - after all, missiles attack only in certain directions, the border section is small, it is easy to build a multi-level defense. And no one doubts in the mind of their engineers, their "Dome" is constantly being improved. But even in these greenhouse conditions, defense breakthroughs occur, especially during mass launches.
        What is the conclusion from here?
        This game works both ways.
        We need more kamikaze UAVs to detect the enemy and stop the shelling before the shelling begins. And no help to the Nazis from NATO will help them. It's impossible to kill everyone.

      Most likely, the Buk-M3 intercepted. After all, it also intercepted much faster shells from the MLRS HIMARS. The Patriot air defense system would simply not have had time to intercept the Excalibur.

      . However, shooting down an artillery shell is much more difficult than an airplane, helicopter or drone. The projectile is much smaller and travels much faster. From the barrel of the M777 Excalibur howitzer takes off at a speed of 827 meters per second (about Mach 3) and spends 40 seconds in the air when firing at 48 km. Very few air defense systems can detect a small object in such a short time, calculate its trajectory, launch and direct an interceptor missile.

      https://rg.ru/2022/11/27/pvo-rf-sbila-amerikanskij-upravliaemyj-snariad-excalibur.html

      . Today there are no analogues in the world to the Russian BUK-M3 air defense system. He calmly intercepts all types of air targets from drones to missiles at a speed of 3 km / s. For example, the Patriot can only reach missiles at a speed of 1,6 km / s at an altitude of no more than 15 km. The vertical range of the third BUK starts from 10 meters above the ground and ends in near space at 35 km. But most importantly, the Patriot air defense system remains blind without the operation of a special satellite that "illuminates" targets, transmitting coordinates to a radar machine. As a result, an American anti-aircraft gun takes 90 seconds from detection to launch, which in combat conditions is comparable to the speed of a turtle. The same BUK-M3 spends 10 seconds on the whole process.


      I wonder what the range of destruction will be for the Buk-M4? At least they will reach 100 km?
      No sooner had the third generation of the BUK-M3 air defense system reached the missile forces this fall than Almaz-Antey began development work on the fourth BUK-M4.

        Why not? Read the characteristics of IRIST, quite a good medium-range air defense system. You can’t underestimate the enemy. And don’t forget NATO has a whole anti-aircraft defense system, from UAVs and decoys to electronic warfare

    There through the yoke. And our generals did not know before that it was necessary to build air defense in zones? belay

    Dnepropetrovsk. There was more than 100 such shells.
    Where does such accuracy come from? I’m all for it, although I would like them not to reach Dnepropetrovsk at all, and on the way they turn into oxides .. request

    thanks to the mixed battery of anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) "Buk-M3", "Buk-M2", ...... with a target engagement range of up to 200 km.

    What is the author smoking? What other ranges of destruction do Bukovs have up to 200 km?

    Uh, dear ones, doesn’t the range for the beech bother you? It seems like according to the factory up to 70 km and not 200.
    Correct if wrong.

      Were not mistaken. But the author accelerated in the descriptions and did not have time to slow down in time and slipped through the 70 km limit.

    The author is clearly out of touch. What 200 km. the range of destruction of Buk? The article is empty.
