April 14 - Air Defense Forces Day

151
The need to create air defense forces (Air Defense) was discovered with the advent of aviation - airplanes, balloons and airships capable of carrying various weapons, equipment, communications and enemy manpower on board. The urgency of the problem of organizing the defense of troops and the country's territory from air attacks was confirmed by the outbreak of the First World War, when aviation began to be widely used by its participants to strike at the enemy’s active forces, as well as at its rear facilities.




Of course, the most important stage in the development of the national air defense system was the period of the Great Patriotic War. The rapid development of aviation and artillery in the pre-war and military years with unprecedented speed changed the content and tasks of air defense, led to epochal quantitative and qualitative transformations of the air defense forces. During the years of the Great Patriotic War, Soviet air defense forces destroyed more than 7500 enemy aircraft, which provided invaluable support to aviation and ground units and formations, and also ensured effective protection of key rear facilities - large industrial enterprises throughout the country.

The Day of Air Defense Forces is celebrated on the second Sunday of April from 1975. Setting the date of the holiday is due to the fact that it was in April that the leadership of the armed forces and the country as a whole made the most important decisions regarding the fate of the air defense forces, improving their organizational structure and further technical development. The date of the celebration of the Day of the Air Defense Forces has been preserved in the new Russia - 31 of May 2006, by the President of the Russian Federation the corresponding Decree “On the establishment of professional holidays and memorable days in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation” was signed.

Today, Russian air defense units are intensively re-equipped with the latest technology. For the radio engineering parts of the Ministry of Defense, it buys the newest radar systems and stations with the characteristic names of "Sky", "Opponent", "Gamma", "Radio Beam", "Sopka", "Casta", as well as the most modern automation systems "Foundation" and "Crimea" ". The anti-aircraft missile units throughout the country, along with the proven C-300 SAM systems, already have in their arsenal upgraded Triumph C-400 SAM systems, as well as the advanced Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile and gun systems. The Russian Ministry of Defense promises to equip “air frontier guards” with the ultra-modern C-2020, Vityaz and Morfey air defense systems, which will make the national air defense system capable of withstanding any existing air threat.

            - alas, I do not remember, twenty years ago I served. Fueled these missiles with oxidizing agent and fuel, and assembled them for spare parts - how LEGO is assembled, first the engine control unit, then the warhead compartment - such a ball with 90 kg of explosives (if there is a yellow band on the missile in the vicinity of the warhead compartment, then we will they didn’t collect us, they didn’t let us in to her at all, and generally they walked around the tenth road, only bald guys worked with them, they came with suitcases and under guard), then the GOS and a radio-transparent cap on top. Then you attach four accelerators to the sides of the rocket and it is ready to destroy at least the B-52, even the bald one. And it crashes perfectly - I was convinced of the shooting. And from TZM to the launcher (I received an injury due to stupidity - there, with the launcher, the connection to the rocket goes with such a powerful paw with a hydraulic actuator, it fell a bit under such a paw - TIN) I overloaded the crew with a strong excess of standards, and sat on the radar. And what is 5A25 - I do not know. I do not remember.

      And what didn’t they make in Kazakhstan?
      Judging by the flag.
      By the way, Germans, repatriates who returned from the USSR were not taken into the German army if the person in the Soviet army had served.
      It was believed that a man cannot swear an oath twice, if not a traitor.

        On February 20, 1975, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR established by its Decree, "Day of the Air Defense Forces of the USSR" thereby recognizing the enormous merit of the air defense forces in the defeat of the Third Reich, as well as encouraging for their invaluable contribution to the protection of the state border of the Soviet Union in peacetime. The holiday was prescribed to be celebrated on April 11th. However, five years later (October 1, 1980), the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR issues a new decree in which the holiday "Day of Air Defense Forces" was ordered to be celebrated on the second Sunday of April.
        According to the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 549 of 31 of May 2006, “On the establishment of professional holidays and commemorative days in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation”, the Day of Air Defense Forces is celebrated on the second Sunday of April.

    Happy Holiday, dear compatriots! The only remark is that the author does not quite own the question. The fact is that the composition of the Air Defense Forces of the Country has always, since the pre-war times, included air defense aviation. And the pilot Talalikhin was an air defense, and Gennady Osipovich (who destroyed the so-called "South Korean liner") was an air defense pilot. And the bulk of these 7500 enemy aircraft was ground by aviation in the Moscow Air Defense District.

      A special hello to Osipovich. How does he live in Ukraine? I hope everything is fine with him. I remember his interview, two weeks later, in “Serving the Soviet Union.” He said so. The commander ordered the fire. I carried out the order. Respect! By the way , the story is very muddy. But the fact that the Boeing flew empty, definitely.

The commander ordered the fire. I carried out the order. Respect! By the way , the story is very muddy. But the fact that the Boeing flew empty, definitely.
        I don’t communicate directly with Gennady, but I often see his photos from meetings with colleagues, like I’m alive and well. The story is not muddy, there was definitely reconnaissance - well, a Boeing with three duplicate navigation systems cannot easily miss 500 km (half an hour of flight).

      Read who and from whom he scooped up.
      To understand how serious the situation was for the Israelis, it is best to turn to the Israeli casualty figures.

      During the first four days, the Israeli Air Force lost 81 aircraft, which amounted to two-thirds of the total number of losses that the Israeli aircraft were to suffer in 19 days of the conflict. This was mainly due to the self-confidence of the Israelis, who, based on the experience of the 1967 war, were scornful of the S-75 Egyptian air defense systems. But the Israelis paid for their frivolity - this time the Arabs had much more advanced air defense systems. Along the entire length of the canal, on its western shore, there are new air defense systems: S-125, Cube, Strela-1, and Strela-2 portable anti-aircraft anti-aircraft systems.

      SAM 2K12 "Cube" was an unknown value for the West, and no one knew how to deal with its combined radar and electron-optical guidance system or with a target search radar. SAM batteries were placed according to the classic Soviet scheme of a multilevel air defense system. Trying to avoid getting any one known type of SAM, Israeli fighters inevitably fell into the zones of action of other air defense systems.

        It is time to already grow from murzilka and begin to get acquainted with reputable sources.
        Then the confrontation unfolded in the air. One of the largest air battles in the history of the Arab-Israeli wars took place over the Bekaa Valley. According to some reports, about 100 Israeli aircraft and the same number of Syrian ones came together in the Lebanese sky. During the first day in an air battle 29 Syrian aircraft were shot down. The Israeli Air Force did not lose a single car. During the first week of fighting, 86 Syrian aircraft of the MiG-21, MiG-23, and Su-22 types were shot down. The Israelis lost only 2 helicopters and a Skyhawk, shot down by a PLO missile.

Another 27-35 Israeli aircraft were shot down by Syrian air defense systems. 15.08.82/102/1 TASS issued a statement that Israeli claims that Israel allegedly shot down 70 Syrian aircraft, having lost XNUMX from air defense fires, are nothing more than a lie and that Syria destroyed about XNUMX Israeli aircraft during the battles over the Bekaa Valley.

      Eldorado Canyon, Iraq 2003, Yugoslavia 99, Desert Storm, Bekaa Valley. Even in Georgia, Soviet air defense systems were crushed, albeit with losses. Well, the permanent Israeli raids on Syria and Iran.
