Anti-aircraft system s-300

“Together with the rocket troops on combat duty have taken up the calculations of the electronic units and points of guidance aviation, stationed on mainland coast of the Laptev sea and on the Kotelny island, located where the Arctic military base of the Northern fleet “North clover” – have informed in a press – service of SF.

Recall that the system s-300PS “Favorite” is designed to protect important military facilities, military forces and administrative-industrial centers from the blows of all types of aircraft and helicopters, cruise missiles, other aerodynamic means of air attack, and aeroballistic and ballistic missiles of operational-tactical designation. “Favorite” is striking aircraft and cruise missiles flying at a speed of 1,200 meters per second, at distances up to 300 km Last modified “trehsotki” allow destroy to 36 aerodynamic or ballistic targets, inducing them to 72 missiles. S-300 can operate in a massive RAID by enemy aircraft and in heavy countermeasures environment.

“Trencada” is not the only defense, located in the Russian Arctic. At the end of July last year on experimental combat duty there took the first division anti-aircraft missile and gun complexes “Carapace-C”. Then the chief a press-services of Northern fleet Vadim Serga said that his calculations became part of the Kola air defense compounds and will serve to protect the air space of the main base of the Northern fleet. He noted that, given the difficult terrain on the Kola Peninsula, “Pantsir-s” is the most effective system providing air defense of military installations and a guaranteed defeat, including small air targets.

that same summer, Northern fleet commander Alexander Moiseyev said that SF got a new air defense complexes tor-М2ДТ ready to operate effectively in the Arctic. “They are designed for service in harsh Northern conditions and in the course of summer training will be tested its combat capabilities in the Arctic,” the Admiral said. Tor-М2ДТ capable of destroying aerial targets, including missiles, at ranges up to 15 kilometers and an altitude of 10 km.

for several years the Russian Arctic cover and anti-aircraft missile system s-400 “Triumph”. Together with “tracheotomy” they protect against air and space attack strategic objects of industry, energy and transport communications of the Murmansk region, as well as the locations of forces and troops of the Northern fleet.

What kind of weapons “Triumph”, can be judged by this fact. During the tests on grounds Ashuluk and Kapustin Yar, this system managed a missile to shoot down a target flying at a speed of 2800 meters / second, and the other to get the object at a height of 56 kilometers. Serial s-400 is capable of at a distance of 400 km to conduct simultaneous firing of up to 36 targets and to direct them to 72 missiles. Nicknamed in the West Growler – “Grumpy”, this defense may apply, at least seven variants of missiles. Three of them – 48N6E, 48Н6Е2 and 48Н6Е3 – suitable for combat shooting as “chetyrehsot” and improved system of s-300PM. Ammunition with the designation 48Н6ДМ specifically modified under “Triumph”. The management of these missiles is based on the principle of semi-active radar homing with offsetAkzia. For the s-400 also produce two kinds of intellectual ammunition of new generation – 9M96E and 9М96Е2. It uses active radar homing. But the range of these missiles is designed only for 120 miles.

In November of last year, the safety of navigation along the Northern sea route began to provide more and coastal missile systems “Bastion”. They equipped the tactical group, not only in the mainland of the Russian Arctic, but also units, placed on the archipelagos of the new Siberian Islands and Franz-Joseph.

This coastal missile system used to engage surface ships of various classes and types from the composition of the airborne compounds, convoys, ship and aircraft carrier battle groups. “Bastion” will perfectly cope with solitary vessels of the enemy, and, if necessary, can destroy ground objects. And do it even in conditions of intensive fire and electronic countermeasures.
