Air Defense C-400


China confirmed the greatness of air defense S-400

Recently, Saudi Arabia agreed to buy the Russian-made C-400 air defense missile system, and this was a serious blow to the United States and its European allies. Earlier, Turkey purchased C-400 air defense systems for $ 2,5 billion and began negotiations with Egypt. At present, Egypt already has in service the C-300BM systems designed to intercept and destroy medium and short-range ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, tactical and strategic aircraft, high-precision weapons, early warning and detection aircraft, as well as electronic warfare aircraft ). The C-300 system is in service in countries such as Greece — a NATO ally, India, China, Venezuela, Ukraine, and Bulgaria (a member of NATO).

Although the C-300 system has high efficiency, C-400 drastically changes the laws of air defense. First of all, because the C-400 system is capable of launching more interceptor missiles of four different types:

  • 40N6E (range of 400 km)
  • 48N6 (250 km);
  • 9M96EXXUM (2 km);
  • 9M96M (40 km).

For comparison, the US-made Patriot system only works with interceptor missiles whose range is 96 km. It is important that the 9М96Е2 long-range missiles used in the C-400 system are a real breakthrough in military technology - they are capable of reaching a speed of about 5 000 m / s. The main targets of such missiles are enemy aircraft and cruise missiles that have passed through the air defense system.

Dr. Carlo Kopp, one of the modern experts in the aerospace industry, said that the C-400 also has an additional radar to destroy modern stealth aircraft - F-22 and F-35. This radar operates in several frequency bands, including in the VHF and L-bands, where you can detect "stealth fighters".

The plane F-35 is protected only the front of the fuselage, that is, if it deviates from the course, it will become vulnerable to attack. Following Russia and China, which focused on the development of aircraft and missiles on stealth technology, the entire air defense system of the United States and its allies is gradually becoming obsolete. When upgrading radar systems, the integrated Russian air defense system will take one more step forward. The shortage of funds for the development and manufacture of new aircraft has led to the fact that Russia is now lagging behind in the arms race for a decade. because of economic instability, the country can not meet the needs of the Armed Forces in the purchase of a sufficient number of military equipment and weapons. Therefore, it invests in the development of a Russian air defense system capable of withstanding American cruise missiles and stealth aircraft.

The C-400 system acts as a counter-argument against many command and staff aircraft, for example, the E-3 DRLO. The US and its allies in the North Atlantic Alliance use such aircraft at their military bases in the UAE and Japan where the squadrons of these aircraft can become targets for interceptor missiles S-400.

Saudi Arabia has shown interest in modern Russian air defense systems mainly for their other merit - the ability to withstand ballistic missiles, although there are no real facts confirming this function at the complex.

It is also believed that the signing by the Saudis of a contract for the supply of weapons may be associated with the purchase by Egypt of the C-300BM and C-400 complex. With regard to the arms trade, Russia actively cooperates with Greece and Turkey, which are considered to be US clients in the market, as well as with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other Gulf countries. Russia demonstrates a significant breakthrough in air defense technology. Currently, with the system C-400 can not compete any analog.

Guys, you'll forgive me .... basically you hoo *** nude carry !!! You forgot who stood at the origins of development and air defense systems? so open up at least Wikipedia. Did you forget how our defense works ??? it operates on the same system as under the Soviet Union. This is a serious team of engineers of the highest category of various industries. In fact, they are scientists with real doctoral degrees and not as a citizen.

Ukrainians here write their mrii, and you are led)) let the chubby sharovarniki further dream, do not bother) but then when the hour of X comes, again they will whine about the evil Russians and as thousands of SWUs put a small group of militiamen)

Russia does not lag behind in the arms race !!! Russia does not see the need to re-equip because the 5 generation aircraft do not have tasks for which a lot of butterflies need to be poured, and 4 +++ generation planes solve all the existing problems excessively. As for other areas of armament such as ballistic missiles, armored vehicles, air defense, EW and Intelligence - the UWB have fallen behind forever!

Well done, the right thought. Zhi * am it was necessary for pi ... yes, see all that Russian weapons are not suitable. Let them think so, everything has its time

In Syria were checked, the shell was not in combat condition, shut up!

I see here some experts appeared on x # $ # $ from weapons of the Russian Federation ... Have you served as a Warmi? Panzer sightseers beaten up and that out of this ate they were controlled by idiots who threw a technician in marching position without cover it so that the fault of the $ # $% $% that the panzer was ruled ...

I'm interested! People like you, dumb or blind? Although it can be seen that both. The videotape provided clearly shows that the shell was in marching condition, and neither in combat. All its modules were collapsed. This is like striking a building that can not be answered. I'm amazed at your brainlessness.

Yes, you whistle masters

Uh-huh. I here also made a 600th cinder on the Zaporozhye. His driver, from surprise, even dropped the pistol from his hand ...

Two Italian professors of sour cabbage soup and one of 100 thousand yellow Chinese publications "confirmed fidelity." And on the other end of the world Jewish pilots in one operation sent on 20% vyalichiya to the nearest point of reception of scrap metal

Our air defense systems are the best !!!

Yes, although the C-9999 - so far this rocket is strong only in words. Who saw her? Who experienced in real conditions. armor like also was invincible, and Israel droned it off. and did not even blink.

How do you know which Russian weapon is better? See what China is buying! The fact that China does not need - you can safely throw out, but this, by the way, is full
