According to the magazine Jane's Defense Weekly, which refers to images from space, South Sudan in 2015 r put 16 launchers 5P71 on combat duty XNUMX near the capital Juba. This is reported by the blog. bmpd.

“Although the target detection and missile guidance radars are not visible in the photo, the number of 5P71 launchers suggests that South Sudan has four C-125 air defense missile systems with four launchers each. They receive information from an unidentified radar detection, which stands separately, - writes the publication.

The construction of the base for the storage of the complexes was conducted from March to November 2013. Approximately at the same time, the installations and radar for target detection were recorded for the first time.

There is no information that Sudan itself bought C-125. However, it is known about the procurement of 4-x battalions of ZRK and 300 missiles by Uganda. Weapon It was delivered to the country from Ukraine in 2010-2012.

“Given the existing number of C-125 systems, as well as the fact that these systems are not in service with Uganda, we can assume that Uganda then delivered them to South Sudan,” the magazine notes.

The fact that South Sudan put on combat duty "a strategic air defense system with missiles with radar guidance near Juba" was also reported in December last year by the US ambassador to Juba. In the same month, Sudanese armed forces reported a downed aircraft that violated the country's air border.

    For such a small and new state, formed after the separation of Sudan is a good thing. Not whimsical and not so expensive, for their neighbors is a real danger.

    Against the strong powers, it’s a bit old, of course, but if the big powers want it, they will bomb it in ruins anyway, and it's a good buy. Optimum price-quality ratio.

        This is most likely TZM (transport-loading machines). And the complex, although ancient, is still relevant today. Belarus is still in service.

        If only on a self-propelled chassis set.

        this is not possible for the 5P73-2D launcher (arm-sized cable)
        So for now we have:
        "Pechora-2M".


        and project
        The KBSM (St. Petersburg) developed a launcher for the Pechora-2M air defense system on the chassis of the MZKT-8021 vehicle. Belarusian car builders have foreseen the possibility of equipping a self-propelled PU with a Mercedes engine, an Allison gearbox, and foreign tires, which they explain by the relative cheapness of these components, and not only by the preferences of foreign customers. Studies conducted at the design stage to determine the possibility of transporting rockets over rough terrain on the beams of the 5P73 launcher showed that it was impossible to transport 4 missiles without radical refinement and weighting, and it was decided to convert the four-beam launcher to a two-beam launcher.

        The mass of the self-propelled launcher is 31500 kg, the combat crew is 3 people. Speed: on the highway - 40 km / h, on a dry dirt road - 20 km / h, on rough terrain - 10 km / h. The time to transfer the launcher from transport to combat is no more than 30 minutes. In the future, it will be equipped with an autonomous source of energy supply, a set of control equipment, prelaunch training equipment and a radio line for exchanging information with the division command post, which will ensure that the launchers are moved to a more dangerous direction at a distance of up to 10 km from the guidance means.

    I do not envy South Sudan, since Ukrainian air defense has an irresistible craving to bring down civilian aircraft.

      All air defense systems have the urge to shoot down civilian aircraft. Just like all tanks "have an irresistible urge" to destroy civilian objects, etc. things.

      A person shoots and leads, he also calculates and checks the possibility of finding civilian equipment in a given area. Therefore, it is not necessary to blame the technique, it is a human factor.

    In my opinion, with this complex, if my memory serves me right, on May 1, 1960 Powers (U-2) was shot down near Sverdlovsk! (Not, but looked - with the S-75 complex, but one horseradish S-125 is an ancient piece of iron).

      The C-125 is usually credited with an even more epic downed plane - the F-117 Lame Goblin.

    o tse the lads were spinning. you knew in advance that they would be “protected by the West” and sold the complexes for a clean loot. only it didn’t help them strengthen the economy, but the accounts of high-ranking cahlov were replenished.

        "Translate to number"for the S-125, it means to completely throw out all the UNK stuffing. warm tube an analog complex in which even ordinary semiconductor diodes have found only limited use.
        We completely replace the contents of the UNK racks, completely redo the power supply (400 hertz kilovolts and even 380 V "digital" are clearly not needed), completely overhaul the onboard SAM equipment ... Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a normal "Buk", which is long-range and besides more mobile - can shoot quickly and get out of the blow?

        Moreover, since about the 60s of the last century, air defense systems of the country began to be inferior to army complexes in terms of performance characteristics.

        In Pechora -2M, UNK has not existed for a long time. It is in digital and self-propelled. The antenna post is also self-propelled, the gun is also self-propelled. Power is autonomous for everyone. It is quite a decent toy, but of Russian design. Khokhlyatskaya Pechora-2D is basically the Soviet Neva S-125 in fact, there is nothing fundamentally new.

          Uh-huh ... I remember this "modernization type".
          Replaced 44 units and 6 equipment cabinets of the complex on the 2 equipment cabinet "UK370" and "UK360". The zip materiel is re-equipped with equipment to ensure the operation of new equipment and amounts to 50% of the number of installed equipment.
          Managed rocket "5ВХNUMXД" received an updated engine on the first stage, an upgraded warhead and a fundamentally new fuse. All this expanded the range of destruction to 27 kilometers and increased the possibility of destroying low-flying targets due to an increase in the mass of the warhead by more than 32 times and the fragmentation of fragments 1.5 times.
          PU has an engine "YMZ-238D" with power 330 hp and moves in combat status with 2 missiles, which significantly increased combat readiness and deployment time.
          The complex includes the newest transport-charging vehicle “PR-14-2М” with a hydraulic manipulator for working with the missile products of the complex, which adds the ability to load rockets into the launcher anywhere.

          In fact, instead of modernization, a new complex was made. From the old, as I understand it, he inherited only CHP and single-channel on purpose - at the same time you can only aim 2 SAMs on 1 target.

    The second photo shows a four-girder PU 5P73, from the C-125, which were actually upgraded in Ukraine to the C-125-2D by Aerotechnics.
    On satellite are viewed (if I may say so) two-frame PU 5P71 S-125; in Ukraine did not modernize.

    The complex is old but reliable. And he showed himself positively in the Arab-Israeli disassembly of the 60s, and Stells in Yugoslavia also failed him.
    Yes, of course there isn’t that fun and range as the 300s and others like them, and the price is lower. For Sudan just right. If only they would not indulge, as they say.

      They found oil there long ago. This is the basis of the economy of South Sudan. They thought they would separate from North Sudan and heal. However, rampant democracy and complete control of pipelines by North Sudan reduced oil production by a factor of three, and a drop in oil prices and an oversupply of oil on the market put a fat cross on the plans build new pipelines through Uganda and Kenya. As usual, everything is shorter

        This is not all. How do you like this information. Is it worth considering?

        “It turned out that in the depths of the black continent there is a hundred times more water than on its surface. The largest deposits are located in the Sahara - under Libya, Algeria, Egypt and Sudan. Now scientists are thinking how to get to the water.

        Florence Sylvester, geologist: “Large-scale drilling can cause irreparable harm to the discovered ecosystem and make water unsuitable for consumption. The best solution is well-located small wells, as well as manual pumps. ”

        In Africa, the news was received with great enthusiasm. More than three hundred million people on the continent suffer from water shortages. According to scientists, the found reserves will last for at least 70 years. "
