C-500 complex


China: Russia will test the unfinished complex S-500 this year already

Recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he would personally oversee the readiness to complete work on the development of C-500 anti-missile systems so that they can be put into service as soon as possible.

The head of state sees this as a necessity, since strengthening the military-defense complex with unique weapon systems is the only really effective response to Western sanctions. "Thousands of words of protest will not be compared with the promotion of one wing of my strategic bombers," said Vladimir Putin.

In addition to the refined C-500 systems, in recent years Russia has developed a large number of advanced weapons, for example the hypersonic missile system "Dagger", whose missile flight speed can reach 10 Makhov (about 12,2 thousand km / h). Putin called these weapons deadly, as it can bypass American missile defense systems.

The accuracy of C-500 has not yet been determined, and one can only give an estimate of the range of ground-to-air missiles on the mere indication of the range of fire. Russia claims that C-500 is "the only anti-missile system in the world that can destroy a real target at any altitude, moving along any trajectory and with any aerodynamic force." At the same time, the data on the detailed technical characteristics of this antimissile complex are classified as top secret. The world will learn about this weaponry only the most general information that the Russian media will provide.

According to available information, and the analyst who appeared in the news media, the new set of Russians has the following strengths:

  1. The height of the trajectory is 180 km, and this, by analogy with the American THAAD, is enough to intercept medium-range ballistic missiles in the atmosphere and beyond.
  2. The firing range is more than 500 km, which allows intercepting NATO aircraft carrying out firing from outside the visibility.
  3. C-500 is more maneuverable when intercepting missiles and can intercept hypersonic and ballistic missiles, as well as small satellites and other targets in near space.

Experts say that the implementation of all work on the development of C-500 is unlikely to take place on time. The only possible option to comply with the words of the head of state is to do the same as with C-400 - first to take in the troops an unfinished version, and later in the course of combat practice to correct mistakes.

According to Putin himself: "A thousand words of protest will not be compared with the nomination of one wing of my strategic bombers"

Putin can not say so. Through the chur brought up.

"... In any case, it would be difficult to predict the result of an attempt to intercept the Tomahawks or F-35 using C-400 ..." - and why use it if these firewood are able to intercept the Syrian complexes of the Jurassic period. And so no ax flew. Yes, and you would not be interested, as with the "unfinished" for your words, C-500 about which you do not know anything, but write. And in general, C-400, C-500 and other complexes - an extreme measure, providing for work on the goals that you allegedly let in and they allegedly fly, and this is unlikely to happen, do not have time ...

The missile hit the target, located at a distance of 481 kilometers

The plane was suspended on a balloon or hit the tank?

Putin personally tackled this issue in order to speed up the design work.

Took a logarithmic ruler and sat down for calculations?

However, the American Tomahawks twice attacked Syria from the air

I remember these epic attacks.

American THAAD, can shoot down missiles on the final segment of their flight, intercept medium-range ballistic missiles in the atmosphere and outside the atmosphere

And primitive Korean rockets are not capable of knocking.
