Russian designers are developing tools for protection from hypersonic weaponstransmits RIA News report of the Chief of the Air Defense Forces of the Land Forces Alexander Leonov




“In the future, we will encounter such hypersonic targets as planning warheads, hypersonic aircraft, this direction is extremely promising. Here, work to combat this promising tool should be organized, and it is being conducted, ”the lieutenant-general said on the RSN.

He added that “at present, hypersonic threats are intercontinental ballistic missiles and medium-range missiles.”

In April, Deputy Commander of the Aerospace Forces, Victor Gumenny, stated that “the first system capable of intercepting hypersonic targets — the Prometheus C-500 complex — should be put to the test soon.

Recall also that in April in the Orenburg region was tested the Russian "promising hypersonic combat unit for intercontinental ballistic missiles." With a new warhead launched a ballistic missile RS-18 (NATO classification Stiletto). The tests are recognized as successful.

    Since there is a sword, there must be a shield.

      This is correct and the shield must be reliable.

          I wonder what is new in this article and what to discuss?

          For example, the problem of timely detection of hypersonic and low-altitude targets. There must be too little reaction time for the air defense system. A person will definitely not have time to intervene, and the capabilities of modern reconnaissance and detection tools based on classical methods of radar are physically limited, not to mention the combat conditions of operations under interference and a large number of false targets.
          It is time to change the priorities of anti-aircraft missile development of air defense and move on to new methods of electronic reconnaissance and destruction.
          As an example:

            There must be too little reaction time for the air defense system.


            For ballistic purposes, everything is simple. Until they separate and change the trajectory. It is more difficult, or rather, today it is impossible to intercept a non-inertial target when a possible trajectory changed by random numbers makes it difficult to calculate. This applies primarily to tactical missile weapons. Here, the main thing is not to destroy the ammunition itself, which seems very difficult, but to knock down the target using any methods. I think in this direction the search is going on.

          I do not understand. And why is the S-400 not protection? Hypersound is a speed of 1500 m / s, while the S-400 has a speed of downed vehicles of up to 4800 m / s.

            From the moment of detection to the moment of launch, a certain time passes, that's all.
            And then - hypersonic versus slightly less rapid hypersound. Add reaction time, aiming time, speed-up time ...
            But they (enemies) can also build missiles with speeds in the region of 5000 m / s.
            And if also the distance is small (from the borders of the same Baltic)?
            You can just not be in time.

            So the S-400 is for today, the S-500 is a little further.
            But it is necessary to work for a more distant future.

            But, for example, light is much faster than sound. In any conditions.
            Maybe something will work out with lasers.
            It would be great.

    "Prometheus" is more than a fitting name (one of the titans in ancient Greek mythology, protector of people) for intercepting hypersonic missiles. The main thing is to have time to put on alert.

    More and more air defense will be ABM.
    as aviation develops more and more towards speed and heights.
    but the WTO is exactly the opposite, striving to fly away as low and inconspicuously as possible.

    I will reveal a "terrible secret" - ALL ballistic missiles from medium range and more are hypersonic. Long time ago. And the questions on their interception have been around for as long. This is a very difficult task, but they solve it little by little. Maneuvering on hypersound is not easy, monstrous overloads occur, the interception time is extremely limited, the cost of a miss is high. Well, you have to count very quickly to aim accurately. In my opinion, the buzzword "hypersonic weapon" is more like an invention of a journalist, picked up by politicians and warriors - convenient for giving boring and already boring terms like missile defense a new, sonorous name - a kind of "brand" under which you can take new money ... Judge for yourself - maneuvering ICBM units for INDIVIDUAL GUIDANCE have speeds of the order of 20 M! The most hyper-hyper ... What other weapon do they need?

      Mountain shooter - "they" need both weapons and counter weapons capable of actively maneuvering in dense layers of the atmosphere, withstanding overloads of tens of thousands of G and at the same time subtle and capable of deceiving air defense and about the enemy.

      What other weapons do they need?


      The article indicates already flying, or rather falling weapons. But I think, it also implies being developed, flying along a non-inertial trajectory. For strategic weapons there is not much difference: five kilometers there or five kilometers here, the power is too great, but to miss a tactical missile to strengthen the area is already a failure.

    Given the available information: the United States is really concerned (you are concerned about ours ....) with Russia’s progress in testing hypersonic weapons, oh yes, China is also there .... but this is a different story. I think we will be the first country in the world that will make both a reliable shield and a sharp sword (i.e. hypersonic), so far the states are not very successful (that’s rushing from laser systems to the railgun)

    the first system capable of intercepting hypersonic targets - the S-500 "Prometheus"

    In the early 1000s, the B-60 anti-missile intercepted hypersonic targets - i.e. missile warheads.

      There was an interception when the warhead "fell" directly on the counter-missile.
      Interception at low altitude at the last moment.
      And then, conventional warheads that did not give reliable destruction of the target were quickly replaced by nuclear ones.

      Now they are intercepting at a high point on the trajectory hundreds (or thousands) kilometers from the target of the BR.
      And it is possible to shoot several times from different batteries placed along the BR trajectory.

    If we take into account that we are developing similar hypersonic weapons, it is logical to assume that there are also anti-weapons developments, only how much they are commensurate with Western developments is only specialists know ... But in general, when creating a club, a shield is also created, so let's see in the future!
