The current state of the Russian air defense system




To write this article, I was greatly inspired by the excessive patriotic moods of a significant part of the visitors of the Military Review site, which I respect, and also by the slyness of the domestic media, regularly publishing materials about the unprecedented Soviet military gain, including the Air Force and Air Defense.

For example, in a number of media outlets, including on “VO”, in the section “News"A material was published not so long ago under the title:" Two air defense divisions began to guard the airspace of Siberia, the Urals and the Volga region. "

Which says: “The assistant commander of the troops of the Central Military District, Colonel Yaroslav Roshchupkin, said that two air defense divisions had stepped on combat duty, starting to protect the airspace of Siberia, the Urals and the Volga region.

“The duty forces of the two air defense divisions took up combat duty to cover the administrative, industrial and military facilities of the Volga region, the Urals and Siberia. New connections are formed on the basis of the Novosibirsk and Samara aerospace defense brigades, ”RIA Novosti quotes him.

The combat crews equipped with the C-300PS anti-aircraft missile systems will cover the airspace above the territory of the 29 subjects of the Russian Federation, which are the responsibility of the Central Military District.

An inexperienced reader, after such news, may get the impression that our anti-aircraft missile defense units received qualitative and quantitative reinforcement with new anti-aircraft complexes.

In practice, in this case no quantitative, and even more qualitative enhancement of our air defense, has happened. It all comes down to just a change in staffing and organizational structure. New technology in the troops did not arrive.

The C-300PS modification, mentioned in the publication, with all its merits, can in no way be considered new.


C-300PS


C-300PS with 5В55Р rockets was adopted in the distant 1983 year. That is, more than 30 years have passed since the adoption of this system. But at present, in the anti-aircraft missile defense units, more than half of the long-range air defense systems of the C-300P belong to this modification.

In the near future (two to three years), most C-300PS will have to either be written off or overhauled. However, it is not known which option is economically preferable, modernization of old or construction of new anti-aircraft systems.

An earlier towed version of the C-300PT has already been either written off or transferred "in storage" without any chance of returning to the troops.

The “freshest” complex from the “300th” C-300PM family was put into the Russian army in the middle of the 90's. Most of the anti-aircraft missiles currently in service, was made at the same time.

A new widely advertised anti-aircraft missile system, the C-400, has just begun to enter service. In total, 2014 regimental kits were delivered to the troops as of 10 year. Taking into account the forthcoming mass write-off of this number of combat equipment which has developed its resource, it is absolutely not enough.


C-400


Of course, experts, of whom there are quite a few on the site, can reasonably argue that C-400 is significantly superior in its capabilities to the system, which it replaces. However, one should not forget that the means of air attack of the main “potential partner” are constantly being qualitatively improved. In addition, as follows from "open sources", there is still no mass production of promising 9М96Е and 9М96Е2 rockets and XLUMXН40Е ultra-long-range missiles. Currently, the C-6 is used for the 400H48Е, 6H48Е6, 2Н48Е6 RR C-3PM missiles, as well as the 300H400МДМ developed for C-48.

All in all, according to “open sources”, in our country there are about 1500 PU-ZRS of the C-300 family - apparently, taking into account the air defense units of the ground forces that are “in storage” and in service.

Today, Russian air defense forces (those that are part of the Air Force and Air Defense) have a 34 regiment with C-300PS, C-300PM and C-400 air defense systems. In addition, not so long ago, several anti-aircraft missile brigades converted into regiments were transferred to the Air Force and Air Defense from the air defense of the ground forces - two 2 divisional brigades C-300В and "Buk" and one mixed (two divisions C-300В , one division "Beech"). Thus, in the troops we have 38 regiments including the 105 divisions.

However, these forces are extremely unevenly distributed throughout the country, Moscow is best protected, around which there are ten C-300P regiments (as part of two of them there are two C-400 divisions).

Not bad covered the northern capital - St. Petersburg. The sky above is protected by two C-300PS regiments and two C-300PM regiments.

The SF bases in Murmansk, Severomorsk and Polyarny cover three C-300PS and C-300PM regiments. In the Pacific Fleet in the Vladivostok and Nakhodka regions - two C-300PS regiments, and the C-400 regiment received two divisions. Avachinsky Bay in Kamchatka, where SSBNs are based, is covered by one C-300PS regiment.

The Kaliningrad Region and the Baltic Fleet base in Baltiysk are protected from air attack by a mixed regiment of C-300PS / C-400.

Recently, the Black Sea Fleet's anti-aircraft cover has increased. Prior to the well-known events related to Ukraine, a regiment of mixed composition with the C-300PM and C-400 divisions was stationed in the Novorossiysk area.

Currently, there is a significant increase in air defense of the main naval base of the Black Sea Fleet - Sevastopol. It is reported that in November, the Peninsula air defense grouping was replenished with C-300PM air defense complexes. Taking into account the fact that complexes of this type are not currently manufactured by industry for their own needs, they appear to have been transferred from another region of the country.

The central region of our country in terms of anti-aircraft cover resembles a "quilt", in which there are more tears than patches. One regiment of C-300PS is available in the Novgorod region, near Voronezh, Samara and Saratov. The Rostov Region is covered by one C-300PM and “Beech” regiment.

In the Urals, near Yekaterinburg, there are positions of an anti-aircraft missile regiment armed with a C-300PS. Beyond the Urals, in Siberia, there are only three regiments deployed in a giant territory, one C-300PS under the Novosibirsk regiment, in Irkutsk and Achinsk. In Buryatia, not far from Jida station, one regiment of the Buk air defense system is stationed.

In addition to anti-aircraft systems protecting the base fleet in Primorye and Kamchatka, in the Far East, there are two more S-300PS regiments covering Khabarovsk (Knyaze-Volkonskoye) and Komsomolsk-on-Amur (Lian), respectively, and one S-300V regiment is deployed in the vicinity of Birobidzhan.

That is, the whole huge Far Eastern Federal District is protected: one regiment of mixed C-300PS / C-400, four regiments of C-300PS, one regiment of C-300В. This is all that remains of the once-powerful 11 Army of Air Defense.

"Holes" between air defense facilities in the east of the country are several thousand kilometers, and anyone and anything can fly into them. However, not only in Siberia and the Far East, but throughout the whole country, a huge number of critically important objects of industry and infrastructure are not covered by any means of air defense.

Atomic and hydroelectric power plants remain unprotected over a large part of the country, airstrikes on which can lead to disastrous consequences. Vulnerability from air attack facilities of the Russian SNF dislocation sites provokes “potential partners” to a “disarming strike” attempt with high-precision weapons of non-nuclear equipment.

In addition, the long-range air defense systems themselves need protection. They need to be covered from the air by short-range air defense. Today, shelves with C-400 receive for this ZRPK "Pantsir-S" (2 per division), but C-300P and B are not covered with anything, except for, of course, effective protection anti-aircraft machine guns caliber 12,7 mm.


"Pantsir-S"


Things are no better with the lighting of the air. This should be done by the radio engineering troops, their functional responsibility is the early issuance of information about the beginning of an air attack by the enemy, the provision of target designation for anti-aircraft missile forces and aviation air defense, as well as information for the management of formations, units and units of air defense.

During the years of the “reforms”, a continuous radar field formed during the USSR times was completely lost in some places.
At present, there is practically no possibility of controlling the air situation over the polar latitudes.

Until recently, our political and former military leadership, apparently, was occupied by other more pressing issues, such as the reduction of the armed forces and the sale of "excessive" military property and real estate.

Only recently, at the end of 2014, was Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu announced measures that should help remedy the existing situation in this area.

As part of the expansion of our military presence in the Arctic, construction and reconstruction of existing facilities on the Novosibirsk Islands and Franz Josef Land is planned, reconstruction of airfields and deployment of modern radars in Tiksi, Naryan-Mar, Alykel, Vorkuta, Anadyr and Rogachevo are planned. Creating a solid radar field over the territory of Russia should be completed by 2018 year. At the same time, it is planned to update radar stations and data processing and transmission facilities by 30%.

Special mention deserves the fighter aircraft, designed to deal with the means of air attack of the enemy and perform tasks to achieve air superiority. Currently, the Air Force of the Russian Federation formally counts (taking into account the “stored”) about 900 fighters, of which: Su-27 of all modifications - more than 300, Su-30 of all modifications - about 50, Su-35С - 34, MiG -29 of all modifications - near 250, MiG-31 of all modifications - near 250.

It should be noted that a significant part of the fleet of Russian fighters is only nominally in the Air Force. Many aircraft made in the late 80-x - early 90-x, require major repairs and upgrades. In addition, due to problems with the supply of spare parts and the replacement of failed BREO units, part of the upgraded fighters is in fact, as the aviators put it, “doves of peace”. They can still rise into the air, but to fully accomplish the combat mission is no longer.

The current state of the Russian air defense system


The past year 2014 was significant in terms of the unprecedented volumes of supplies to the Russian armed forces since the days of the USSR.

In 2014, our Air Force received the 24 multifunctional Su-35С fighter produced by the Yu.A. Aviation Plant. Gagarin in Komsomolsk-on-Amur (branch of "Company" Sukhoi "):


Su-35S at Dzemgi airfield, photo of the author


Twenty of them became part of the reconstructed 23 th Fighter Aviation Regiment of the 303 Guards Mixed Aviation Division of the 3 th Command of the Air Force and Air Defense of Russia at the Dzemgi airfield jointly with the Khabarovsk Territory.

All these fighters were built under a contract dated August 2009, with the Russian Ministry of Defense for the construction of X-NUMX Su-48C fighters. Thus, the total number of machines manufactured under this contract reached 35 by the beginning of 2015.

The production of Su-30SM fighters for the Russian Air Force is conducted by Irkut Corporation under two contracts for 30 machines each, concluded with the Russian Ministry of Defense in March and December of the year 2012. After the delivery of 18 machines in 2014, the total number of Su-30CM supplied by the Russian Air Force reached 34 units.


Su-30M2 at the Dzemgi airfield, photo of the author


Another eight Su-30М2 fighters were produced by the Yu.A. Aviation Plant. Gagarin in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.

Three fighters of this type entered the newly formed 38 th Fighter Regiment of the 27 th mixed aviation division of the 4 th command of the Air Force and Air Defense of Russia at the airfield Belbek (Crimea).

Su-30М2 aircraft were built under a contract dated December 2012 for the supply of 16 Su-30М2 fighters, bringing the total number of vehicles built under this contract to 12, and the total number of Su-30М2 in the Russian Air Force to 16.

However, this significant by today's standards amount is absolutely not enough to replace in the destructive regiments of the aircraft due to the complete physical wear and tear of aircraft.

Even with the current rate of deliveries of aircraft to the troops, according to forecasts, in five years, the destructive fleet of domestic air forces will shrink to about 600 vehicles.

Over the next five years, about 400 Russian fighters will probably be written off - up to 40% of the current payroll.

This is primarily with the upcoming write-off in the very near future of the MiG-29 of the old building (about 200 units). Due to problems with the airframe, about 100 airplanes have already been rejected.


Su-27SM at the Dzemgi airfield, photo of the author


Unmodernized Su-27 will also be written off, the flight resource of which ends in the near future. More than half the number of interceptors MIG-31. As part of the Air Force, it is planned to leave the 30-40 MiG-31 in modifications DZ and BS, another 60 MiG-31 will be upgraded to version BM. The rest of the MiG-31 (about 150 pcs.) Plan to write off.

Part of the shortage of long-distance interceptors should be resolved after the start of the massive deliveries of the PAK FA. It was voiced that the PAK FA before 2020 was planned to be purchased before 60, but so far these are only plans that are likely to undergo a significant adjustment.

The Russian Air Force has 15 ARLO A-50 airplanes (still 4 in “storage”), they have recently been supplemented with 3 upgraded A-50U.
The first A-50U was delivered to the Russian Air Force in 2011 year.

As a result of modernization works within the greatly increased the functionality of the aviation complex airborne early warning and control. The number of simultaneously tracked targets and simultaneously induced fighter improved detection range of different aircraft.

The A-50 DRLO A-100 aircraft based on the Il-76МД-90А with the PS-90А-76 engine should replace the A. The antenna complex is built on the basis of an antenna with an active phased array.

At the end of November 2014, TANTK them. G. M. Beriev received the first Il-76MD-90А aircraft for conversion into ARLO A-100 aircraft. Russian Air Force shipments are scheduled to begin in 2016.

All domestic DRLO aircraft are based on a permanent basis in the European part of the country. Outside the Urals, they appear quite rarely, for the most part during large-scale exercises.

Unfortunately, strong statements from high tribunes about the revival of our Air Force and Air Defense often have little to do with reality. In the “new” Russia, absolute irresponsibility for the promises made by high-ranking civilian and military officials has become an unpleasant tradition.

As part of the state armaments program, it was supposed to have twenty-eight X-NUMX-divisional regiments of the C-2 and up to ten divisions of the latest C-400 air defense missile system (the latter should perform tasks not only of air defense and tactical missile defense, but also of strategic missile defense) by 500. Now there is no doubt that these plans will be foiled. The same fully applies to plans for the production of the PAK FA.

However, for the disruption of the state program, no one, as usual, will incur serious punishment. After all, we are "its not we pass," and "we do not 37-Year", is not it?

PS All information given in the article concerning the Russian Air Force and Air Defense is taken from open public sources, a list of which is given. The same applies to possible inaccuracies and errors.

      It would not be a refutation to write your article with refutations, with facts refuting the "fabrications" of the author.

      The state has money to order, which means that defense enterprises are directly or indirectly to blame for the delay. Or the directors decided to curry favor and initially set unrealistic deadlines, not calculating their capabilities, or simply work slowly.

        Information on the air defense data and the number, distribution, routes, spare areas of deployment, etc., is classified information with a minimum tolerance of OP, so the author is naive as a child on Google estimates our air defense, no one will tell you the number of air defense divisions and regiments, especially since peacetime on combat duty is no more than half of all that we have, and at this time no more than 35-45% of the total, everything that is done new, according to old Soviet tradition, goes into reserve, approximately 60 by 40% and in the state reserve you if they ETS does not count, the information in the country know the most people 30. If you have something, show the enemy that you do not have it. Sun Tzu

          Do they leave for the state reserve not modernized? Or will they be upgraded, say, the C300 to the B4 modification?

            The modernized ones usually go to the troops, and new percent of 60 goes to the reserve, now we have a problem not in armament, but in competent specialists and preparation of calculations, this also applies to the Defense Ministry and the military-industrial complex.

        Now everyone in the military-industrial complex is ruled by "effective managers", and not industrialists and engineers as in the USSR. And the main thing for menagers is to cut down the dough.

        The directors do not set the terms and volumes of the state order - they try to fulfill it, despite the decay of the technological base and the almost complete absence of the domestic element.

      The article is full of crap.
      For some reason, the author did not write or did not know that already this year another regimental set of S-400 Triumph air defense systems will be placed in Kamchatka so that everything is covered in the Far East.

      The author, but what data is provided by the analytical center Air Power Australia.
      In the event of a full-scale military conflict, the possibility of survival of the US Air Force aviation is almost completely excluded due to the fact that Russian air defense systems: radar systems and anti-aircraft missile systems have reached the highest level of development.
      At the same time, the S-300 systems, which make up the backbone of Russian air defense, are still able to deal with any probable enemy. According to a number of European experts, Russia's air defense system is able to destroy up to 80% of any type of aircraft invading its airspace. Russian experts are more modest and estimate this number at 60-65%, but in any case, enemy aviation will simply suffer irreparable damage from which it can no longer recover. So who to believe ........ data for 2013
      And believe me, not only people like you author exceed the advantages of our army. In American, too, not everything is so smooth.

        My five kopecks - if they still don’t bomb us, it means something is holding them back. It is unlikely that this is their peacefulness. They did not go to Ukraine and Syria with their troops, as to Libya, Iraq or Yugoslavia. So the RF Armed Forces in defense inspire the probability of filing in the event of a direct collision. But at the same time, Ukraine and Syria are quite at war over the corner, therefore, the threat of filing from the RF Armed Forces in the offensive is insignificant. Since the combat charter requires a minimum of three times an advantage for the offensive, it means that we have one third of the required aircraft. Including in air defense.

      He served half his life in the air defense forces. Served Khabarovsk Army, Vladivostok Corps, 10 rtbr Artem (Two, Red Barracks). Finished the service of Father Askold. When today I asked about the fate of the units where I served, I was surprised to find that the air defense of Primorsky Territory essentially does not exist. With a hypothetical strike of the Kyrgyz Republic on the territory of the Primorsky Territory, there is Nothing to defend.

      It is bitter to admit, but the old informational “noodles” intended for ordinary people (that is, you and I) have undergone significant changes in the direction of “credibility”, and have become not so shamelessly long and unscrupulous, tinted in “patriotic” colors.

        > And I do not have to like anyone, especially YOU

        firstly, the author is obliged to respect readers - this is part of his duties, if he has already posted the article in public access.
        He grabbed the tug, do not say that not a dozen!

        secondly - even from my point of view, not a citizen of Russia, the article shows a dislike for the country. And any article on a military theme will be checked by readers on the topic of love for the motherland.

        I will give a simple example - poor air defense cover by air defense / missile defense systems. Now for the Russian Federation the main danger is a clash with NATO, and it is obvious that this was quite obvious to the country's authorities many years before the current events. And even then they made their choice - who is the enemy and who is the ally.

        The numbers on the MiG-31 which they decided to cut and leave at least questionable, I read in the open press with reference to various authorities about completely different numbers. In the article about the unflattering state of the country's air defense, the absence of indications of the ambiguity of digital data is interpreted unambiguously - as malice, because only one Putin and Shoigu can know reliable data, and everyone else must always assume that their information is insufficient.

        And most importantly, the lack of any analysis of the concept of air defense / missile defense cover nationwide

          secondly - even from my point of view, not a citizen of Russia, the article shows a dislike for the country. And any article on a military theme will be checked by readers on the topic of love for the motherland.

          Excuse me, where did you notice the "dislike of the country"? If the article was that everything is fine in terms of air defense and air force, would that be love?

          I will give a simple example - poor air defense cover by air defense / missile defense systems. Now for the Russian Federation the main danger is a clash with NATO, and it is obvious that this was quite obvious to the country's authorities many years before the current events. And even then they made their choice - who is the enemy and who is the ally.

          Voto does not need this! no I myself live and once served in air defense in the Far East, and I know how things are here in this area by hearsay.

          The numbers on the MiG-31 which they decided to cut and leave at least questionable, I read in the open press with reference to various authorities about completely different numbers.

          Doubt - this is your right, but I have no other data. Moreover, in the summer of last year, he himself found out in what state the MiG-31 are in Yelizovo.

            Well, this slides between the lines, and how the person’s attitude is calculated, I roughly explained on the example of the MiG-31, regarding which there were many different figures in the press

            > Voto is not necessary! no I myself live and once served in air defense in the Far East, and I know how things are here in this area by hearsay.

            but this is a matter of principle - the enemies and allies are determined by the military doctrine and the highest leadership of the country, current events clearly indicate that a friend and who is the enemy.
            And it is obvious that countries have been preparing for such a confrontation in a few years, and the choice to use limited military resources has been made almost since 1991. It is also obvious that at first de facto already since the time of Yeltsin, and now doctrinally, China has ceased to be considered an enemy of the Russian Federation

In the current situation, it is better to give up all efforts to counteract massive attacks by cruise missiles and aviation. We need more than the S-400, Armor and, of course, build up aviation.

      The points. Armata is the basis of the combat power of the ground forces: there is Armata — minimal losses of manpower of the NE, and if not, tady is understandable. We are not building aircraft carriers yet, only we are discussing them. The A100 / 50 with the Air Force and Air Defense Forces assigned to them is the most effective against the Kyrgyz Republic, the most effective of the latter being the S-350 missiles, which will begin to arrive only next year.
      And the author of the article, based on materials from open sources, needs to make an adjustment to the fact that they don’t write everything in these sources. But even in them it was written that the new S-400 covers the SSBN base in Vilyuchinsk (Kamachka), and a continuous radar field is created on the basis of the Voronezh, ZGRLS Container and Sunflower radars, which cover the blind area of ​​the Container. The exact amount is unknown, approximately 10 each. A continuous radar field at the moment can only be achieved with the help of the A-50, which, in addition, need air defense drones, which can be done much more than fighters for the same means. You need to spend money rationally.

        Without front-line aviation cover, air defense and electronic warfare, the same almatas will be mixed with the ground, and together with the crews.

      Due to a number of restrictions, this publication has not yet included a paragraph on the state of our airfield network. In this part, the situation is also very alarming. Since the collapse of the USSR, many military airfields have been closed on the territory of the Russian Federation. Most of the existing runways need reconstruction, repair and modernization.

          Tatyana, I have to disappoint you. This area used to be covered by numerous air defense systems. The last positions of C-300P in the Bryansk region were liquidated approximately 10 years ago. At present, this area (in the photo, which shows the former positions of air defense systems and areas of the Topol base), unfortunately, are not covered. Moreover, nearby is also the unprotected Shaykovka airfield with the Tu-22М3.

    Unfortunately, high-profile statements from the high stands about the revival of our Air Force and Air Defense often have little to do with reality.

    And if all aki look more pragmatic - all that is needed is covered. Exercises of deployment and deployment, as well as firing of anti-aircraft systems, are held regularly. Nothing prevents in the threatened period to transfer air defense systems to the desired direction. And to protect hydropower plants and nuclear power plants in the interior of the country when there is no threat of attack, putting a number of air defense systems nearby, is not practical. Rather, it is worth guarding the nuclear power plant with ground forces, there are more chances that they will try to capture it than they will gouge it with tomahawks.
    The same goes for aviation. What is the use of a regiment of the new Su-30M2 to sit in the Yakut tundra if the Black Sea has excellent training targets kindly provided by NATO?
    By the way, the author forgot about SPRN. It detects EVERYTHING that flies in its area of ​​responsibility, from small Cessna to satellites in low orbit. So there is no need to place a C-300P regiment in the tundra either.
    The fact that our country due to its size is not evenly covered by air defense is not a secret for anyone. Yes, that's just nobody will look for targets in the tundra and taiga.

        Dear author! Not considering myself a jingoistic patriot, I positively assess your analysis. But do you seriously think that someone is ready to fight Russia without nuclear weapons? NATO is now a stronger opponent for the Russian Federation, so I will base my estimates on the analysis of their weapons. The NATO countries are armed with several types of missile defense systems with non-nuclear equipment, with a total of up to 20 thousand (according to the open press, I counted about 16,8 thousand produced). Now the carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic are submarines -1400 KR, surface ships-2000, VVS-15000. This is pure mathematics without taking into account the compatibility of carriers and missiles. That is, it seems that they can launch everything in one gulp? But no, it is necessary to secretly transfer to the firing range, and this can be done (again, not the fact that it will not be detected) only by submarines and partially by the Air Force (V-2 and F-35), and this is 1400 + 460. Missiles with non-nuclear warheads have a maximum range of 1600 km, and most of them are up to 1000 km. From where you can start and where you will fly you can analyze yourself if interested. And the most important thing: the main thing is that as soon as the mass launch begins (the submarine will shoot rockets of the order of 10 minutes, if not more) this is already a detection, we will add the flight time to the target (all missile launchers are subsonic), so that even with the current state, both the air defense, air force and strategic missile forces will work honestly .

          No, I don’t think so! But the number of our carriers of nuclear weapons and deployed nuclear warheads is steadily decreasing from year to year. Also, despite recent efforts, they are aging and are not being replaced in the required number of radars, air defense systems and fighters. All this is very alarming, especially in the light of the failure of the State Defense Order. I am sure that readers of VO have the right to know about the current state of affairs. Moreover, besides NATO, in the east we are witnessing a qualitative strengthening of the armed forces of China

              Dear Tatyana, I will not argue with you, I just recommend reading the provisions of the extreme treaty with the United States on strategic offensive arms. Or you can still look here, I did this analysis about a year ago, but little has changed since then.

    As for unprotected nuclear power plants and hydroelectric power stations - this is a lie. They are protected, if not in the first, then in the second place. There are gaps, but the main strategic objects are covered, that's for sure (including all cities with a population of over one million),
    Yes, the S-300PS were put into service in the 82nd, were produced before the beginning of the 90s, and were planned to be repaired after 25 years, the service life was extended by 10 years, to which year it is not difficult to calculate. I’ll tell you more, I serve normally now on the S-300PT. A rotation occurs, new air defense systems replace the old ones, and they cover less important objects.
    About the Arctic and RTV I will not spread, but also not entirely correct information.
    I completely agree with the author, in the sense that many overestimate the capabilities of our air defense and missile defense, but, unfortunately, he was too carried away in exposing it.

      Do they even stay with us? According to my information, they are available only on storage bases. If the S-300PT is still in the army, then everything is sadder than I thought. The latter stood near Novosibirsk and Severodvinsk, but in 2014 they were supposed to be sent "for storage".

      Zhigulevskaya hydroelectric power station - there used to be rocket launchers in the forest, now part of it has been withdrawn. In the area of ​​the Volga cliff, a part remained, but this is not a panacea.

        Igor, here you are not quite right, the number of air defense systems in this area has really sharply decreased since Soviet times. In the Zhigulevsk area, the old S-75 air defense systems were eliminated. But in the area of ​​Volzhsky and Novy Buyan, C-300PS remained.

                You are welcome! S-300PS even with the old 5В55Р missiles can hit targets at ranges up to 90 km. If you measure the distance with a ruler, but in Google Earth there is such a function - it turns out that the hydroelectric station itself is covered. Nevertheless, your concern, I share.

          Quote: Bongo
          the number of air defense systems in this area since Soviet times has really sharply decreased.


          But is it necessary now to protect each hydroelectric power station by and large ??? If it would occur to some crazy person to start a war against such a huge country as Russia, with its nuclear weapons, then it would be enough to destroy the strategic missile forces position areas, nuclear submarines, Engels airfield (and where there are still strategists) - and, of course, turn into pit Moscow as a center of military-political leadership ... And you do not need to bomb large industrial cities ...

          So, it seems to me that in today's conditions the leadership is trying to cover up these points first of all ... And this is a sensible act in the current economic situation

    The most probable beginning is just such, in the Western spirit.
    At night, without warning, a massive raid is an attack with so many missiles and carriers that the air defense will need to work at random. Therefore, I agree in something. Aircraft carriers, Mistral are less preferable.
    Most importantly, I believe that there are now those who will think about it in the first place, and not about cutting the dough and constructing dacha-palaces by conscripts.

    Sorry, but this is paranoia, firstly the NATO resource is not so powerful that without concentrating certain forces in a certain area they could deliver a sudden blow, and secondly, at the site of the NATO hawks, I thought that in response to such a strike I wouldn’t get a retaliatory strike, but with nuclear weapons, thirdly, look at the map and try to identify these areas where they can concentrate forces and means for a surprise strike.

    author Plus .... recently he was engaged in the installation of our radar.
    honestly, I’ve never done anything like that before. and was deeply surprised, to say the least! The mess in our factory was enough!
    A bunch of parasites and contractors. A big lack of coordination.
    at the Factories - a bunch of small sticky, lured friends stuck.
    EXAMPLE: before that, the factory produced their engraving washers. they said it was not profitable in the end they started to buy cheap Chinese, of such disgusting quality — that you have to shoot for such a lot of import ... WHY they don’t put their own, I THINK a question for the FSB ... they really have their own, but grandmas and greed are doing their job.
    The inertia of the PLANTS is very large. As I understand it, this mess is not only with us .. BEYOND THE BURGTER no less, judging by the description of friends.

    But on the other hand, I understand the leaders ..... WHILE one is being developed IT is already OUTDATING, which was relevant in the MID-2000s, now it is OUTDATED.
    with regards to aircraft and their radar.

    But the fact that the author writes unfortunately and fortunately a reality. I think he is not the only one who knows about it. and know at the top.
    But you need to do ... DO NOT lower your hands.
    Yelling that everything was gone ... well, this is no use and the equipment will not appear.
    Anyway, the equipment in the factories needs to be changed .... the equipment needs to be prepared to replace what really can be repaired - to do it, the rest should be scrapped or sold to the MUSEUMS or to businessmen ... let people roll into the STRATOSPHERE for grandmas!
    good luck to the factories in the construction of a new

      the fleet has its own air defense missions — it is a cover for the naval grouping of ships, which in turn should neutralize potential carriers of strike weapons, although not everywhere, for example, in the Black Sea the air defense fleet is quite capable of repelling the attack means, but it’s too early to talk about it, and funds KCHF, missile cruiser "Moscow" it certainly sounds menacing, but he is the only one at KChF, we are waiting for replenishment, then it will be possible to say with confidence that the south is covered, especially since the middle-east is opening up gradually for the Russian fleet

    The author correctly noted that our defense of air defense has a point-like character.
    The main million-plus cities are closed, closed.

    Objects of nuclear power plants and hydroelectric power stations in doubt. For example, a regiment in Achinsk covers Krasnoyarsk and Zheleznodorozhny, but at the same time it is not able to close the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric station (distance in a straight line 388 km)

    In the event of a local military conflict, when the enemy dominates in the air, the transfer from one region to another air defense system will be clearly problematic.

    And about, SPRN. "It detects EVERYTHING that flies in its area of ​​responsibility, from small Cessna to satellites in low orbit.“she unfortunately doesn’t detect everything. There is nothing more beyond Irkutsk.

And there’s no reason to keep so many divisions in few crowded places where there is a production with a gulkin nose ... And most importantly, the defense industry does not get stuck in place but goes ahead ... The point is to start powerful production of some systems if more modern models are already replacing them ... Well, let's rivet s-400 and then we will remove them and c-500 and so on ...

    The author is "in topic".
    Therefore, I read this article with benefit for myself.
    The problem of air defense of the country, unfortunately, is as old as this world .... Seven nannies have a child without an eye .... Where did our "wise" hand guides not shove. Either in the Air Force or in the army commanders .... About the basic system, which finally achieved the ground structure of air defense, the site has already been said. Now we are trying to restore what we have destroyed ....
    I am sure that I was not the only one who was waiting for the full implementation of the State Defense Order for 2014. But how could it be otherwise - "After all, the MAIN ORDER!" But as it turned out - the sun does not rise by his order. State defense order for 2014 AGAIN NOT FULFILLED! Oddly enough this sounds, but the depreciation of the ruble halved, by the same amount it reduced the purchase (of ours!) Of equipment and weapons ....
    At a recent meeting of the Chief with Shoigu and Siluanov, they began to divide the "holy cow" - the Military Budget. Did they tell you something completely different?
    Pensions to military pensioners, which by law must be indexed from January 1 of each year, have already been "forgiven." Well, on some points at the same time went ....
    PS Speak no money for new weapons in the budget? Maybe in the budget, at such a rate of theft and not. But if you "scrape over the guts," as the leader said in a conversation with his friend, three billion dollars was immediately found. And if you also shake it? Not only can the air defense of the country be recreated, but there will still be a dozen aircraft carriers .....

    No, the article is somehow incomprehensible. Air defense countries that rotting sackcloth. Explicitly misleading. After all, on the part of the authorities, there are no claims to the board after the 90s. Everything is in openwork. All did everything only for the good of the country. And everyone is so fluffy that there are no words ... emotion.
    So all this is a slander.
    And remember. Until the culprits of this or that consequence are identified, talking about the state of affairs is either posturing or hypocrisy.

      It's just statement of fact.
      The author accessible and as informative as possible covered the topic: in what state are our air defense at a given time.

      And to determine the culprits of the consequences, there is a court.

    Information that everything is not right with the air defense of our country is accessible to the minds of any person with a military education, and even civilians, so such a review article in a decadent style was written in vain ...

    Firstly, and during the Soviet era, not everything was so smooth. The main reason is spaces, gigantic territorial spaces ...
    Then - the army began to be killed not in the 90s, as many believe, but in the 80s, with the advent of Gorbachev ... Those forum users who are already in age should remember very well how this was done ...
    Further - for almost 30 years (80-90-2000-ies), everything continued to fall apart, both the country and the army ... And only now the state is taking decisive measures to restore the army, aviation and navy and their rearmament ...
    Now there is no money and no time to solve those problems that the author writes about overnight ... However, they are being solved !!! Let it be tight, with a creak, but decide !!! If this had not happened, then all this western shobla would not have attacked us so fiercely !!!

    Well, and a summary: even a small North Korea is opposed to the Yankees, and the States do not touch it by and large ... So is Russia really weaker than North Korea ??? Is it really so all gone ???

      North Korea does not affect the interests of the United States, and therefore it does not touch. In addition, the presence of countries like North Korea with an odious dictator in power and a rather impressive army is a good reason to justify the exorbitant costs of the army to taxpayers.

      And who needs the DPRK? no At the very least, it is naive to compare this country with Russia. What is there of those resources that our country possesses? You are sure that if there were significant reserves of oil and gas (uranium, rare-earth or precious metals), the DPRK would not have been “democratized”. Do you really think that the DPRK will be able to withstand the united South Korean-American grouping for a long time. And since all this is not there, it makes no sense to communicate with them, as they say - it’s more expensive for yourself.

    When I lived in Nakhodka (~ five km from the position of the air defense system in the photo), we went to the beach (Tungus) and the hills surrounding it. It was surprising that at the heights surrounding that battery, you can safely climb, the distance to the battery is 1-2 km, it’s all there, the bunkers are abandoned, the position is excellent. And if saboteurs, shelling ?, they are in full view, who served in the air defense tell me, is this normal?

      Here a lot is connected with the specific relief in this part of Primorye. On the other hand, C-300PS that stand in the "Golden Valley" so just can not see. In any case, during the “special period”, the S-300 and C-400 air defense missiles are relocated to reserve positions, the location of which is kept secret.

    What amazes me is how we, that is, the author, as if conducting an analysis, acting as an expert, spreads all the information and conducting the analysis on public display.
    Although we are all going to cheer patriots, etc., and the couch generals and statues I want to speak up but I will not say anything. We all know that all the information about the state of our troops is known to the enemy, and here the analyst gives such a gift with his information collected in one piece and here you are ready to analyze the information, but let yourself pick it yourself you know that the same CIA collect all the information in nete such arguing couch strategists that patriots do not cheer but can actually go to the base to take a couple of shots, talk to old friends close to the body and that's it, and why send spies to Russia if there are such patriots who are ready to show off with oimi knowledge about the state of our Armed Forces and to put in there? I don’t need to shine my knowledge and put it on public display even though it is already the media.
    An anecdote in the subject.
    Grandfather comes to the doctor and says, the doctor I have a problem. well there. Well, it’s not worth it, and I would like, as it were. the doctor says that he won’t say that he’s probably under 80 years old. Yes, the grandfather says. you see, the doctor says you yourself understand perfectly YES, but I have a neighbor. and he’s 85 and he says that there’s nothing else but oh-hoo.
    The doctor thought and said so you say.
    Hope the meaning is clear.
    Thank you, you can minus as much as you wish.

      I am sure that the potential adversary knows much more about the state of affairs than is stated in this article. I even think absolutely everything, including the menu in the dining room a few days in advance, the commander’s preferences regarding food and staff training. And it is quite possible - the performance characteristics of promising complexes that are not yet in development.

    Do you see Seryoga as though she were not rich and patriotic of the Russian Federation today, in addition to air defense it is necessary to solve other tasks, for example, Crimea, the restoration of the military structure in Crimea after the destructive economy of stolen goods requires a lot of infusion, and even more so this is the most strategically important issue,

    PV Defense is the last line of defense. Which would be good
    she was not, with a massive air raid she can not cope.
    Need air supremacy. Many, many fighters.
    So modern fighters are very expensive, the only one
    the way to create quantity and not go broke financially is to drive
    per stream is the only type of fighter in parallel at several plants.
    A fighter with land-based capabilities is also desirable (to save).
    Decide: either Su-, or Mig- or PAK, but do a lot of them.
    The same. With the same spare parts and the same repair
    sites. Production is mandatory at several plants.
    (what will happen if the KR, fire or sabotage closes the only
    manufacturing plant?).

    The analysis carried out in the article is interesting. It is good that the author does not stick out the problem, but simply states the facts.
    But any analyzes have (most likely) a "percent error." There on the map in "my" area is a part of the air defense removed from duty on duty. Well, by external signs, I would not categorically say that it is "removed."

    The article, of course, does not cause much optimism, but the reality is even harsher than that described in the article.
    To begin with, the task of creating in the interests of air defense a continuous radar field over the territory of Russia was impossible even in the time of the so-called "the heyday of stagnation," when both with money, and with staff and production facilities, things were much better than now. Therefore, MIG31 type aircraft and AWACS and U-type aircraft were designed to plug holes in this field at least somehow.
    The available radar missile defense radars did little to solve these problems then and are unlikely to help now because were sharpened by the detection and tracking of ballistic targets (BR, etc.) but not aerodynamic targets capable of flying at low altitudes.
    The author of the article also did not mention the state of affairs with anti-aircraft missile defense systems without which, in modern conditions, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to ensure coordinated control of air defense forces and means. And the state of affairs in this area is even more deplorable than with air defense systems.
    As regards air defense aviation, things are not going as well as they should have been. In particular, the widely publicized T50 and SU35 were successfully brought to Poghosyan to the state of "doves of the world", i.e. beautifully looking at exhibitions and demonstration flights, but so far few able to fight in a likely enemy. More details in a recent article by Olga Bozheva from Moscow Komsomolets. When these peaceful birds become truly fighting falcons, God alone knows. The main reasons for this situation are: turning the country's military budget into a feeding trough for individual business figures and their patrons in the Moscow Region

    I have slightly different information about air defense (we don’t fly ourselves and don’t give others):
    Air Defense Forces
    1st, 5th air defense corps (12 anti-aircraft missile air defense divisions): 37 anti-aircraft missile air regiments, 9 radio technical regiments, 14 radio technical battalions.
    In service: PU SAM: (1.940) 1.876 S-300 of various modifications, 64 S-400.
    fighter aircraft (all not only pure air defense, but excluding fighter-bombers) :( total - 725) 226 Mig-29, 281 Su-27, 218 Mig-31M. How many of them are in service, and how many are in reserve in the source is not indicated.
    Aircraft AWACS: (20) A-50
    Military air defense (only ground forces):
    ZSU: (1756) 1.500 - ZSU-23-4 "Shilka", 256 - 2S6M "Tunguska"
    Anti-aircraft guns: (900) 400 - ZU-23-2, 500 - S-60,
    (storage: (4100 - 61K, B-47, KS-19, KS-30)
    PU SAM: (1320) 50 - 9K31 "Strela" -1, 350 - 9K35 "Strela" -10, 400 - 9A33 "Osa", 120 - 9K330 / 9K331 "Tor" / "Tor" M-1, 350 9K37 / 9K313 Buk, 50 S-300V
    PU MANPADS: (6006+) 1000 - 9K32M Strela -2M, 1770 - 9K34 Strela-3, 3236 - 9K310 Igla -1, 9K38 Igla, 9K338 Igla-S / Dzhigit
    Again, for the reliability of the numbers, where more than one zero, I can not vouch. Although these data are from the report of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on the state of the Russian army in 2014. Again, regarding the combat effectiveness of the equipment stored, I believe that no one will build any illusions.
    I would like to hope that common sense prevails over the base instincts of dubious economy, and the Su-27 with the MiG-31 will not be sawn into needles (at least until they are replaced with new equipment).
    I have the honor.

    Everything is correct, before you remove any unit from the military personnel, you must first put the same modern into the troops. and in recent years, we only "sawed" ships and planes, without compensating by the principle of one to one!

      And where is it and when did the S-300V fight against the F22 Raptor? In heaped up meaningless words, even I wouldn’t lie like that!

    The author of the article is probably reporting personally about the armaments of the Russian Federation from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. You just look at what kind of awareness, especially about the supply of new weapons. I read all the shit, put everything in a heap and then suckers, swallow.
    But in general. To such scribblers personally, my attitude is such-you can’t go into intelligence. Even if we have air defense and missile defense problems, it is really necessary to err on the side of this. Considering that since the collapse of the USSR, our armed forces have practically not been updated. Only in recent years have significant changes and modernization of the armed forces begun.
    It will be necessary for our native land and we will bite the teeth with our teeth. I served thirty years in the armed forces, and I know what I'm saying.

    I agree that not everything is good with the state defense order, but in my opinion the author is too amenable to panic moods and pessimism

      So why wait? The author to the wall, as a panicist and a pessimist, and everything will be in order.
      Or is it not the author’s matter, but how is it?
      And the point is not only in defense orders, but also in how efficiently each ruble spent on this defense order is used, whether they order industries, and if they get what they ordered they use them correctly.
      Indeed, the story of Poghosyan, as well as the story of the former general director of the NGO Antei Almaz Ashurbeyli clearly shows that until recently, the firms they led were pocket firms of these gentlemen and there was no certainty that something had changed significantly with their departure.
      Moreover, both leaders were not brought to justice, but only transferred to other equally high executive chairs. And how many such firms have not yet reached the feet of controllers, and if they have reached it is not a fact that these feet together with their hands will not be greased with plentiful kickbacks. Those. the famous phrase of Ivan Vasilievich who changes the profession of "dance all" has long been replaced by the phrase "steal all." And not only in industry but in the whole chain that is responsible for equipping the Armed Forces with modern military equipment and weapons as well as the competent use of this equipment. That's who would have a panic to the wall ... with performance indicators to bring. And let him explain why each cartridge and not only the cartridge is priced at the weight of gold. Well, they won’t be able to explain, let them stay there at the wall. Forever and ever.

        Well, thank you for your kind words! laughing I still want to live, I have three more children to raise! In the photo, the youngest son Alexei in the cockpit of the PU ZRS S-300PS.
        Well, and seriously, apparently, not everyone, due to their insanity, is able to adequately perceive information that goes against their ideas and attitude. When I was preparing this publication, I was fully aware that labels would start broadcasting on me and accused of betrayal and decadent moods. Frankly, I thought that there would be more critical comments. hi

    The catastrophic situation with the lack of air defense of the country on the eve of a very probable war, in fact, was predictable and understandable. The “great thinkers of our time”, when, in the early 90's, they introduced air defense in the air force, they well understood that they were killing air defense, but they carried out the task.
    Mikhailov Vladimir Sergeevich, when he came to the post of Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force in 2002, was perplexed about this merger, but could not fix anything and hoped to deal with this mutant from a snake and a hedgehog. At least he understood the difference in the tasks, tactics and procedure for the use of fighter aircraft of the Air Force and IA Defense. The farther, the worse the situation. The Minister of Defense, past the war, Marshal Zhukov understood what grief awaits a people who cannot protect themselves from the air. Defense Minister Shoigu, who had not served in the army for a day, believes in reports of subordinates with dubious professionalism, and the president believes in his minister.
    As a result, new anti-aircraft missile regiments equipped with completely new systems are commanded by either pilots or sailors with an approximate understanding of air defense. None of them answered me a simple question: who, in peacetime, will decide on the destruction of an aircraft that violates the state border? There is no single control system and the commander with such a right is not there either.
