“The upgraded advanced C-300PM anti-aircraft missile system has launched a combat duty in the Irkutsk region. Installations arrived at the location of the unit in December 2015. The personnel underwent retraining in the Leningrad region, during which the calculations studied theory and practice to work on the modernized air defense system, ”the release says.

“Despite the resemblance, C-300PM is fundamentally different from previous versions. The rocket of the upgraded air defense missile system has advanced hardware and is capable of hitting air targets flying at speeds up to 6450 km / h, the range of destruction of enemy aircraft is 150 km, ballistic targets are up to 40 km, ”the district explained.

    It seems that defense in depth in the Eastern strategic direction is being created.

      The Far East and the Arctic are specifically covered ... (to see the most dangerous directions) We will fight off in the center, if that! The General Staff is more visible ...

      "Deeply echeloned air defense" near Irkutsk? I beg you ... Since the times of the USSR all the sky over Russia is covered by air defense, this is the air border, if that.

        In Soviet times, yes, then they cut half. Peace, friendship you understand
        I myself lived in the military district near Cherepovets, where the regiment covered the metallurgical plant, now Severstal. Now it’s empty

      This is an object and not layered. If the ICBM goes past Irkutsk, then it will go not at 10 km altitude, three hundred will not reach it.
      Most likely they cover, in addition to the city itself, aircraft construction.

      First of all, regional and regional centers are taken under protection, and this is by and large true and rational, then it is already possible to take significant cities of regional subordination under the guardianship of air defense systems, and eventually close the remaining territories.

    We can never be a topic, but judging by the dollar exchange rate, who can tell who in our country is in charge of the "brokerage office" who to listen to

    But doesn’t air defense have a similar modernization program for the C-300 as in the Air Defense Forces? For example, C-300В4 has a missile with a range of 400 kilometers, why is there no plan to upgrade C-300П / ПС, etc., to the same capabilities? We have almost 2000 C-300, C-400 to compare all 200 launchers. So it would make sense to upgrade the C-300 to the C-400 level (new radars, missiles and hardware).

      But is not there an analogous S-300 modernization program in the Air Defense Forces as in the Wax Air Defense?

      Air defense troops by default exceed the army two or more times.
      This complex drops targets up to 6 sound speeds in a radius of 150 km and in height up to 25 km. Ie almost PRO

        EMNIMS, since the times of the USSR, the situation with the air defense system was just the opposite - the army air defense systems were winging the air defense systems of the country like a bull sheep. The only "bright spot" of the air defense was the S-200.

        When the S-300 went, the army version could do all the same as the air defense, but in addition it could also work as a missile defense system.

          In what you are right. But getting to the bull is very slow. Even the Guardsmen get to the goal is not realistic.
          Air defense line 1 Flankers with Thirty first - targets on sight
          Air defense line 2 These are already air defense personnel
          3 line Military Air Defense

        The S-300PMU-1 is a purely export version. We have modernized the S-300PM built in the mid-90s. S-300PS of which we still had a lot of only "minor modernization" without a radical increase in combat characteristics and medium refurbishment in order to extend the service life. In the next 5 years, most of the S-300PS air defense systems built in the early-mid 80s are to be written off.

      You have mixed in a bunch of people and horses ... wassat Write better about what you understand at least a little. C-300P is the general designation of the family: C-300PT / PS / PM / PM2. To radically upgrade the S-300PS systems of which in the troops we have about 50% of all available is meaningless. They were built 25-30 years ago and are at the end of their operational life. Likewise, the release of missiles to them was discontinued in the middle of the 90's.

    Not C 400 but still the Sling of Dvid is crying for such complexes

    Something characteristics (especially in terms of target speed) are, to say the least, shocking. What is the speed of the rocket itself?

    The new complexes are very good, but the modernized "oldies" are impressive in their characteristics and will still serve to defend the Motherland. So new items have reached Siberia, but there is still no end to work to strengthen the defense. But, the road will be mastered by the one walking, and one of these steps is made.

    It’s not even building up, but simply updating
    air defense systems. For we have a lot of outdated things.
    We bring our air defense / missile defense systems to "normal combat".
