Ministry of Defense: While carrying out a cover mission, the Su-35S pilot of the Russian Aerospace Forces discovered and destroyed the S-300 air defense system of the Ukrainian Armed Forces

Russian military pilots continue to demonstrate a high level of skill, providing support to ground forces, but also not forgetting about combat work in the air. True, reports of air battles with enemy aircraft in the reports of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Armed Forces have long become a rarity due to the almost complete destruction of the aviation fleet of the Ukrainian Air Force, which still consists of Soviet aircraft inherited from the USSR and supplied by the Europeans.

A separate significant success for the Russian Aerospace Forces, undoubtedly, is the destruction of enemy air defense systems. Further thinning of the already leaky air defense of the Ukrainian Armed Forces makes our flights safer aviation and increases the effectiveness of missile and drone strikes against front-line and rear targets. In addition to the Western air defense systems supplied to Kyiv by NATO allies, the Ukrainian Armed Forces still have Soviet-Russian S-300 air defense systems in service.



Despite the fact that these anti-aircraft systems first began to enter service with the air defense forces of the Soviet Army back in 1975, they remain quite formidable weapons to destroy almost any air targets. Depending on the type of missiles used, the S-300 is capable of detecting and shooting down targets at altitudes from 10 m to the practical ceiling of their combat use and at a distance of up to 75-200 kilometers at different angles. In the USSR, this air defense system became the first multi-channel anti-aircraft missile system, capable of accompanying up to six targets with each complex and targeting up to twelve missiles at them.

True, in Ukraine the S-300 has rather fallen into disrepute. In attempts to shoot down Russian missiles and Drones Using ammunition that has lain in warehouses for decades, Ukrainian anti-aircraft gunners often hit residential high-rise buildings. Moreover, air defense systems are often located within populated areas. We can say that by destroying these anti-aircraft guns, our pilots even seem to be saving ordinary Ukrainians.

This time, the pilot of the Russian Su-35S multi-role fighter destroyed the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Kupyansk direction. He himself told the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense about this; the video was published in the official accounts of the military department.



According to the pilot, while carrying out a mission to escort and cover transport aircraft, he discovered radar radiation emanating from enemy-controlled territory. The pilot reported to the command post about the detection of the radar and launched an air-to-radar missile at the detected object. Just like that, as they say in passing, the Russian ace deprived the enemy of another scarce anti-aircraft gun, the crew of which may have been targeting our air group. Later, reconnaissance and objective control data confirmed the destruction of this particular anti-aircraft missile system of the Ukrainian Armed Forces by the Su-35S pilot.



The Ministry of Defense report does not disclose details, but it is possible that the Kh-31PD supersonic missile with a universal homing head, which is not for nothing called a “radar killer,” was used. Its maximum launch range reaches 250 kilometers, which makes it impossible for most air defense systems, including the S-300 complex, to defeat the carrier aircraft. This is a fairly new anti-radar missile, which, in a modified version, began to be used in the Northern Military District zone quite recently.

      That's what's offensive...military people seem to be people, but they write this.
      The S-300 complex, depending on its modification, consists of several vehicles located over a large area. What missile did our Su-35 destroy it with?
      But to destroy one of the radars, yes, our plane could, and that requires confirmation.
      And yet the pilot, WELL DONE, did not lose his head at the moment when he realized that the S-300 was working on him and struck first. That would also help catch the Patriots

              They are not infinite, but they still have enough reserves, especially since there were enterprises in Zaporozhye and Kyiv for the production and repair of such systems.
              For example, here is news from 2021:
              The Ukrainian plant "Generator", located in Kiev, has mastered the in-depth repair of KIU-43 microwave devices intended for the S-300PT (PS) air defense system. Thus, he became the only enterprise in the country capable of performing such work.

            I don’t know about the S-300, but with the S-125, if you destroy the SNR, then consider that the complex does not exist. And if we take into account that under the SNR in a stationary position there was usually a UNK with most of the division officers, and the most senior ones (at the launch positions only pilots - commanders of the launch platoons), and guidance operators, then if the missile penetrates/collapses the ceiling, then even if send a new SNR, there will be no one to manage it. The commanders of the starting platoons were told about guidance and shooting only in the most general terms, and the starting soldiers were not even allowed close to the UNK, and even those who were not the most understanding were sent to the starting platoons. Usually these were immigrants from the southern republics, barely speaking Russian, and their limit was to lose their pens.

            The S-300P system includes:

            anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) 90ZH6E comprising:
            multifunctional radar of illumination and guidance 30N6E;
            up to 12 launchers 5P85SE on the MAZ-547 self-propelled chassis or 5P85TE on the KrAZ-260 road train with four missiles each.
            topper 1T12M2;
            means of technical operation and storage of missiles (22T6E loading vehicle, 5T58E transport vehicle);
            anti-aircraft guided missiles (SAM) 48N6E
            40V6M tower for RPN 30N6E;
            low-altitude detector 76H6;
            technical support equipment (diesel power plants, 13YU6E repair laboratory, spare parts sets).
            This entire list is not combat ready, even if a couple of on-load tap-changer channels malfunction. Malfunctions are very common. The defeat of the 30N6E, even a minor one, means that the air defense system is out of action for a long time. Driving a new one, if you have one, is not so fast; time in this case will pass in days and certainly not 2 hours.

            hothouse conditions of the war in Iraq

            The Americans managed to create these conditions for themselves, thanks to the thoughtfulness, preparation and organization of the operation. And Iraq’s air defense, mainly consisting of air defense systems of the Soviet S-300, S-200,125, Buk, Strela and Osa complexes, was a decent group, just like Kadafi’s air defense in Libya.

                Iraq, of course, did not have the S-300, but the fact is that it had at its disposal systems with 30 years of experience. The newest S-300s that Ukraine is defending with are also over 30 years old. They did not undergo modernization; if anything, there was nothing for it.
                But the Russian Aerospace Forces have a huge advantage over the MNF - we ourselves have large quantities of the S-300 and we thoroughly know all the pros and cons of this air defense system. The United States did not have such knowledge about the S-75/125. That's why

                        Well, the S-125 missiles took off at 10 km, but began to take off at 18 km. Is this a big change?
                        If we take the S-75M modification, it significantly improved the performance of the complex in electronic warfare conditions
                        The S-75M "Volkhov" air defense system differed from previous modifications (SA-75 "Dvina" and S-75 "Desna") in the type of missile defense system (due to which the range of hitting targets was increased), as well as the presence of two parabolic antennas on the receiving and transmitting cabin . For the S-75M Volkhov system, the V-755 and V-755U missile defense systems (“product 20D” and “product 20DU”) were developed. In the B-755 missile defense system, instead of two antennas in the radio fuse, four were used, and the design of the missile’s propulsion engine was also changed. The missile guidance station (MRS) operated in the G-wave band. Narrow beam parabolic antennas were installed on the wide-beam azimuth antenna, which increased the capabilities of the complex when working on small targets in interference conditions.

          The thought persists that if the SU-35 fighters worked not only to “escort and cover transport aircraft” and presidential aircraft, the Defense Ministry, but also covered the IL-22, A-50U over the Sea of ​​Azov and the downed IL-76 a patriot near Belgorod, then perhaps what happened would not have happened. The SU-35 has the ability to quickly detect an enemy radar that is turned on for a short time and quickly attack it with an X-31 anti-radar missile or shoot down air defense missiles already launched at escorted aircraft. This, unfortunately, was not done in the above-mentioned cases.

      We have been destroying the air defense of Ukraine for 2 years. 2 years. And we cannot destroy it, the main proof of which is the lack of work of the aerospace forces on the territory of Ukraine, except for the LBS, which has an extremely negative impact on the destruction of the infrastructure. It is based on the same ancient Soviet S-300, Buk, OSA If someone starts saying that the West has installed many of its own air defense systems there, he is wrong, in reality several dozen of all sorts of IRIS-T, MIM-104, NASAMS, several S-300s have been installed, which carry out only focal defense. But what about the enemies are they producing missiles that only Russia produces? If you believe our media, then almost every day dozens of missiles fly towards the country of U., and according to reports from the enemy side, almost all of them are shot down. Of course they are lying about being shot down, but that is, the consumption, in 2 years, should be at least 5000 missiles, and according to Jane at the beginning of 2021, 36 combat (and 12 in storage) divisions of all sorts of Soviet missiles. According to all calculations, there should be no missiles left, but there are, and aircraft do not fly over the entire territory, and destroy launchers only sporadically. This, alas, is a fact. This is what the lack of a sufficient satellite reconnaissance constellation and AWACS aircraft entails. And the enemy has help from these most important Western components of combat operations, from AWACS, from Global Hawks, etc., they can act and They operate their radars in an inactive, constant mode, which dramatically reduces losses. The question is, how would we act against the air defense of NATO countries, if we cannot suppress our own Soviet air defense, which has been studied far and wide, (the fight against which, along with the fight against Western air defense, has been worked on since the times of the USSR) soon for 2 years and who from the top leadership of the Armed Forces Will the Russian Federation bear responsibility for this?

Yes, not everything works out, but it’s not New Guinea or Gabon that are fighting against us, but very high-tech countries. To our guys, pilots, rocket scientists and others - a low bow.

        It is unfortunate, but it turns out that this is so. Even Jews and Americans learned to fight and found ways to counter our old S-300, S-200, S-125 air defense systems, tors, beeches, arrows and even new shells supplied by the USSR and Russia to Syria. They are now freely and with impunity to bomb any objects they don’t like in this country. Without suffering any losses, except for their bombs and missiles delivered to their targets. This says a lot, Israel can do this, but for some reason we, Russia, are the successors of the creators of these air defense systems. Have you lost your competencies or just don’t have enough brains?
