Air Defense Concern "Almaz-Antey" at the exhibition of weapons Russia Arms Expo 2015


At the Armament Exhibition Russia Arms Expo 2015 held in Nizhny Tagil, the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern presented about 50 samples of weapons and military equipment, including at its stand in the form of models and posters anti-aircraft missile systems C-400 Triumph, C-300PMU2 Favorit, C-300ВМ Antey-2500, Buk-M2, Tor-M2KM, Tor M2E, Tor-M2K, Osa-AKM1, missiles from the Caliber-PLE and Caliber-NKE integrated missile systems, as well as other products.

ZSU from the Tunguska-M1 anti-aircraft missile and gun complex and ZSU-23-4M4 Shilka-M4 anti-aircraft missile systems, which took part in the demonstration firing program, were demonstrated at an open exhibition. Also, on the route of the proving ground, within the framework of daily dynamic demonstrations of equipment, it demonstrated full-scale samples of the launcher-loading installation of the Buk-M2E anti-aircraft missile system and a combat vehicle on a caterpillar chassis from the Tor-M2E air defense system. In addition, at an open exhibition site, visitors to RAE 2015 could see the 9AZZ1MK Tor-M2K air defense combat vehicle, a fighter guidance point aviation "Horizon-E", interspecific radio direction finding meteorological complex "Smile-M", etc.

It should be noted that the exposition of the Air Defense Concern on the RAE-2015 caused an increased interest from both regular visitors and foreign delegations. A series of negotiations took place with foreign representatives interested in the procurement of Russian air defense equipment.

The stand of the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern on RAE-2015 was visited by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, Presidential Aide Andrei Belousov, a delegation of the Russian Defense Ministry headed by Deputy Minister Yuri Borisov, and other high-ranking officials.

PS Russia Arms Expo 2015 was actively covered not only in the media, but also in the blogosphere. True, it was not without annoying blunders. Thus, the popular blogger Ilya Varlamov suggested how to demonstrate weapons in order to successfully sell them. In his opinion, the basis of success is well-painted caterpillars. I do not want to offend Ilya, but, to put it mildly, this is not so.

It should be borne in mind that some of the weapons models presented at the RAE 2015 open exposition participated in demonstration shows at the test site - would they have to paint the tracks every day?

Varlamov was also outraged by the fence, which prevented the public from free access to samples of air defense equipment. However, such measures are absolutely justified, given that modern air defense systems are primarily electronics, anti-aircraft guided missiles, phased antenna arrays, and unlike tanksClimbing visitors using this technique is prohibited for obvious reasons.

Now about the plates with the performance characteristics in Russian, they say the exhibition is for potential buyers from 65 countries, and how do they know now whether they should buy these weapons or not? The fact is that those foreign countries that want to buy something, do it by no means guided by advertising signs, but through complex negotiations that sometimes take several years before a contract is signed. For potential foreign customers, technical presentations, live firing, and detailed explanations are given on all issues of interest.

However, in general, these individual flaws do not implore the commendable interest of Ilya Varlamov in Russian weapons and military equipment, the popularization of which in the blogosphere is important for our taxpayers to understand where the expenditures on national defense go.

    Thank you for the material, of course I would like the photo is not Fizeonomy, namely the technique that they write about, preferably from different angles, but with technical characteristics, I’m sure I say it's time for these purposes to open a separate section for example RAE-2015, and you can also compare with the past, which that’s new, that they’ve modernized, why there’s nothing at all about the same technology, about supply machines, is there really nothing new

    Now all air defense systems are moving in the direction of increasing the ammunition and range.
    so soon the air defense missile system of Tor will increase by 1 launcher from 8 to 12 missiles.

    in the direction of increasing BC and range.

    2a mutually exclusive parameters. Or either
    Range: mass of missiles and mass of radar, as well as CC, and energy consumption. Load capacity and size of launchers are limited
    BC: mass of 1 missiles x qty.
    either (S-300, S-400, long-range and short-range missiles)

    Air defense missile system Tor on 1 launcher will increase from 8 to 12 missiles

    indeed, the Tor-M2E / Tor-M2K air defense systems (export options) and from the Tor-M2U (for the Russian army) 9M338 missile ammunition will be 16 ammunition versus 8 9M331 missiles.
    but for the price ...

    SAM 9M338 RZV-MD -short range

    SAM 9M331 Mass (WITHOUT TPK), kg 167

      Short-range missiles 9M338 RZV-MD

      Why small?

      The 9M331 range is also up to 15 km, like the RZV-MD.

      Or am I confusing something?

      Now everything is on the path of minimization (reduction in size) and every year you can cram the hoo into the same base. A simple example of a PSA ZSU 23-4. Whoever saw, he will understand, everything can be stuck in his place, except (for now) the ICBM. Why change the base, which has justified itself for a long time, if you can change the filling during a major overhaul?
