Venezuelan Armed Forces continue to build up air defense system

The combined command of aerospace defense (CADAI - Comando Aereo de Defensa Aeroespacial Integral) has recently formed at least three anti-aircraft missile groups armed with systems purchased in Russia.


These units 5 July took part in a military parade on the occasion of the Independence Day of Venezuela.

According to Infodifensa, the most attention is paid to the 394-th anti-aircraft missile group. Hugo Chavez, part of the 39-th air defense brigade (Caracas), which received the Antey-300 C-2500BM air defense missile system.

In April of this year, an official representative of Rosoboronexport announced the delivery of two batteries to Venezuela, which should be ready for combat use in the fall of this year.

At the event on the occasion of Independence Day, the 393-I anti-aircraft missile group was also represented. Rear Admiral José María García, also a member of the 39 Brigade of the Air Defense Forces and manned by the Navy and Marine Corps. It is located in Meseta de Man (Meseta de Man, Province of Vargas) and is equipped with Buk-M2E anti-aircraft missile systems, deliveries of which began in April of this year.

For the first time, the 198-I group of man-portable air defense systems was represented at the parade. Colonel Juan Montes de Oca from the 19 Brigade of Air Defense (Maracaibo). It is armed with the Igla MANPADS, which are located on the national off-road Tiun light off-road vehicles.

The exact number of MANPADS purchased was not disclosed, however, according to the latest report of the Russian Federation to the UN Register, in 2012, Venezuela delivered 2 thousand missiles and 400 launchers.

As planned, the CADAI Strategic Operational Command (Comando Estrategico Operacional - CEO) of the National Armed Forces will include six air defense brigades, four of which are already being formed: 19-I (Maracaibo), 29-I (El Sombrero), 39-I (Caracas ) and 49-i (Barcelona). Each brigade will consist of several groups of fire weapons and a division of detection and control.

The groups will provide air defense of units and subunits of the armed forces and will be equipped with the Antey-300 C-2500BM, the Buk-M2E and the Pechora-125M C-2, as well as Igla, RBS-70 and towed C-systems. 23-mm anti-aircraft guns ZU-23 / ZOM-1-4.

      Venezuela is democratizing at an accelerated pace))) No one will doubt their democracy

      It is enough to compare the fate of Yugoslavia and Libya with the events in Syria, so that the last liberoid comes down to it: if the country wants to remain a sovereign and peaceful country, and not become (after the civil war and "no-fly" zones) a colony of the "most democratic" country on the planet, a modern and reliable air defense.

      As already written,
      "Anglo-Saxon scientists, after conducting a series of experiments, came to the conclusion that the lack of reliable air defense in the country sooner or later leads to democracy" ...

      So Venezuela understood everything correctly.

        Unfortunately, it is not enough to understand, and the complexes themselves become an effective shield only as part of a system, the "organization" of which and its maintenance in a combat-ready state requires at least the political will of the country's leadership. Moreover, if for any European country the very presence of the S-300 is a certain guarantee ( due to the remoteness from the United States), then Venezuela located in the historical zone of influence of the United States needs at least an automatic, multi-zone air defense system approximately the same as that of North Korea. at a critical moment, the enemy (us) will have the opportunity (in the absence of logistical problems) to use very significant means to suppress it. If the understanding of this issue in the Venezuelan leadership is sufficient, then our cooperation is just beginning.

        Syria also understood everything a long time ago and has long been trying to get the previously purchased S-300s from us, but unfortunately our authorities are "playing some kind of games" otherwise they would have staged it long ago and did not look at any reaction from the outside.

        It may of course not close, but it can greatly complicate democratization from the air.
        After all, the tactics of forced democratization are based on air strikes, and all countries that have poorly prepared their air defense systems are no longer countries. So are fragments of a nation.
        Of course, it's time for Venezuela to think about both surface-to-ship missiles and electronic warfare ....... I think the authorities are aware of the impending "revolution"!

        One air defense will not close. And 20 air defense will close tongue .
        Therefore, Venezuela not only orders air defense, but a lot of all sorts of useful devices.

          You yourself are talking nonsense. By itself, a powerful air defense system will only increase the cost of the "democratization" campaign.
          Several "missile" destroyers and submarines will swim up and fire a volley of 100KR at control points and "heavy air defense" from 500 km. 75% of the CD will be shot down, the rest will hit the target.
          Then another salvo of 100 KR. Due to violations in the control system, only 60% will be shot down, the rest will hit the target.
          Then the third salvo ... the fourth ..
          Then, stupidly with Harmas, you can throw the remnants of air defense.

          As long as the state does not have the opportunity to retaliate against enemy forces (in this case, anti-ship missiles and fighter-bombers with a decent radius), no air defense will save. Shot as a dash, a matter of price.

            That's right, this is the trick. The goal of democratization is to get it from the war. The goal of those who do not want forced democratization is to do everything so that the Democrats put out more than they have. And if the democrats have less than they invested, then the democrats ......., but this is not true. wink

              No, you haven’t hit the chip yet)))
              Calculate how much did the "democratization" of Iraq cost? Put it all down straight. And then calculate what is the economy of the United States as a state that has gained access to the "oil industry" of Iraq. Receive girrrrny minus in balance)))
              But if you consider not the profit / loss of the state, but the profit / loss of lobbyists?
              Oilmen paid a little to the government and received Iraqi oil companies for nothing. Well, a minimum of investments for restoration after the war, and to lay on force majeure in the form of terrorist attacks.
              The military-industrial complex in general in chocolate, paid a little for the beginning of the war and stable orders.
              And the state is yes, in jojope. But taxpayers will pay))

                It would be a minus if they stopped on Iraq. This project (if I may say so) is long-playing. They started with Iraq. They want to crush everything for themselves there, both Syria and Iran. The pros themselves.

      The United States has little interest in Venezuela, the wrong player, the main players are located mainly in Eurasia, and moves should be expected in this direction. And with the South Americans, one can say and are not considered especially. Example: the incident with the President of Bolivia, and now imagine this situation with the same China.

So, if Russia does not defend its interests and positions, then no Venezuela and Cuba will withstand the onslaught of the United States.

    USA has little interest in Venezuela

    And laughter and sin. While the Americans were singing in chorus to the Russians - "eternal memory" - they themselves are already being squeezed without unnecessary noise.
    About five years from now, I won’t be surprised if the United States asks Russia to deliver oil and guarantee the security of its own economy.

    Well, in addition to the deployable air defense system, Venezuela also has the Air Force, one of the strongest in Latin America, which includes 24 Su-30s, 9 American F-16s (although an early modification of Block-15, there were rumors about their sale to Iran, but then rumors were about did not go) and 11 former Canadian CF-5s, that is, 44 fighter aircraft, and 17 Chinese UBS K-8 "Karakorum" can be used for strikes against ground targets (for comparison, the largest air forces of the countries of the region: Argentina-13 Mirages-3 / 5, 26 A-4 Skyhawk, that is, 39; Brazil-12 Mirage-2000, 55 F-5 Tiger, 53 AMX, then the network 120; Chile-46 F-16, of which 10 are the newest modifications Block 52, other former Dutch modifications AM, 17 F-5 "Tiger", then network 63; Peru - 19 MiG-29, 12 Mirage-2000, 18 Su-25, that is 49). Thus, in quantitative terms, the Venezuelan Air Force is inferior, only to the Air Force of Brazil and Chile, and qualitatively, taking into account the Su-30, they surpass them. Colombia, with which Venezuela has territorial disputes and which openly supports the opposition in Venezuela, has only 23 obsolete Israeli Kfir fighters. All this, taking into account the rapidly developing air defense system of Venezuela, may pose big problems for the “democratizers.” Yours faithfully! hi

    Impunity provokes an attack - a historical fact. Venezuela (thanks to Commander Hugo) does not intend to be on the list of such facts. angry

    USA in lat america act differently. Remember how many leaders from cancer went down. They do not need hot spots there, it hurts close. And the United States itself will not get into trouble there, they will ask for Colombia. Maduro and Fidel need to build a common defense + another country with a communist bias. Also, in addition to three hundred Russia, it is NEED to put drying with the ability to wear brahmos, this will be a good fist

    Nevertheless, the Americans do not climb into the DPRK, despite the rather outdated air defense and air force. You can argue that there are no minerals there either, nevertheless ... And they are in no hurry to go to Iran either. Yes, sanctions, the cries of the "concerned world community" yes, UN resolutions, yes, but no military strike. We adhere to the tactics of a jackal, finish off the weakened. Remember, they climbed into the same Iraq only 12 years after the "Desert Storm", having previously weakened it with sanctions and constant air strikes, and even bribed Saddam's generals; to Yugoslavia 8 years after the collapse of the SFRY, according to the same scenario, and with the help of the Yeltsin regime (Chernomyrdin's mission), and then finally finished off the country with a "color revolution". We must finally say goodbye to the illusion that the West will help us. Yes, the West will help us, sooner fall apart. And not to give up like Aifonchik, aka "Dmitry the Second Poor", after the hamburger with Adam's Bardak from the supply of S-300 to Iran. Yours faithfully! hi

    In addition to defending Venezuela from the air, it would be useful for her to get hold of strike weapons to respond to the territory of the "partner", as well as ships and submarines. Then the blow on the nose will be most tangible and impunity will certainly not prevail.

    the most insidious enemy, these are traitors, you need to select the leading cadres with high quality, Nicolas Maduro, Amer performs coups from the inside out by bribing the top, but here the air defense will no longer help, cadres decide everything

    "Anglo-Saxon scientists, after conducting a series of experiments, came to the conclusion that the lack of reliable air defense in the country sooner or later leads to democracy" ...

    SIMPLY CLASS !!!
