    Are there already S-300V in Egypt right now? And where could we expect them?
    Thanks

    22 chassis of S-300V are under construction for the Egyptian armed forces according to this article

    Thanks! That would be about two batteries: 6 launcher + 3 Loader-launcher + one 9S32 for each batt plus one 9S15 & 9S19; that's 22 chassis

    It appears Egypt bought Tor-M2EK alongside the tracked Tor-M2E!

    Correction about Tor-M2EK, the footage is from Belarus. I was mistaken.

    It does look like Egypt has Tor-M2EK.

    The close range shot is from a wheeled version (not from Egypt)

    But, at the 13 minute in the video you can see 2 vehicles, By looking at the search radar on the one in the right, I can see it could be a Tor-M2EK version.

    Here is still shot at 13:07 min in the video

    Sorry i haven't replied here earlier, obviously the radar of Tor-M2E (tracked) and Tor-M2EK (wheeled)  is the same. Like i said, have traced that launch footage from a belarussian video, i'll have to dig it out again. The angle is exactly the same, and the vehicle is green coloured  as opposed to sand coulour of the egyptian SAMs.

    Why would Israel be so afraid of it?

    Great reply BTW.  They claim they are un-phased because it's peacetime but to protect their future F-35's from any intrusion into Egyptian airspace, they have to go back to the old Vietnam Wild Weasel methods using new tech we can get into if you like.





    Cannot post the external link for 7 days or posts. I'll post it then.

    The newest Russian radar 59N6E "Enemy-GE" in Egypt



    For the first time, a photo of the newest Russian radar 59N6E "Enemy-GE", which is on the armament of the Egyptian army, was published. Earlier, the delivery of radar data to Egypt was not reported.

    Mobile radar 59N6E "Enemy-GE" with digital phased array and digital signal processing is able to track air targets of all classes, perform their identification in the SAM system, as well as automated command and control systems of air defense and air forces.

    Developer: FSUE "Nizhny Novgorod Scientific Research Institute of Radio Engineering".
    The manufacturer: Open Society "Concern PVO" Almaz-Antej ".

    Tactical and technical characteristics
    The range is 23 cm (decimeter)
    Scope of work:
    - in range, km - 10-400
    - Height, km - 200
    - in azimuth, degrees. - 360
    - by the angle of the place, degrees. - up to 45
    - according to the speed, km / h - 60-8000
    Target detection area "aircraft" (ESR = 1.5m2) without interference:
    Range of detection, km:
    - at a flight altitude of 100m - 40
    - at a flight altitude of 1000m - 100
    - at a flight altitude of 5000 m - 240
    - at a flight altitude from 12 km to 80 km - 340
    The upper limit of the detection zone:
    - in height, km, not less than - 80
    - by the elevation angle, degrees, at least - 45
    Maximum productivity, trails - 150
    Deployment time, min. - 40
    Time of deployment in the complete set of increased mobility, min. - 15

    The new Soviet and Russian air defence systems were designed around lessons learned regarding tactics used successfully against their previous models including those in Vietnam and Iraq and other places too.

    Do you really think Vietnam tactics will work against systems developed based on experience of that conflict and conflicts since...

    Even Pantsir-S1 was evolved based on NATO efforts in Kosovo where its altitude performance was greatly improved to prevent fly over tactics used in Kosovo...

    Now obviously the F-35 is a real unknown, but I would think Soviet and now Russian systems will cope... perhaps the best solution is for Israel to stop violating the air space of its neighbours and negotiate for peace honestly. Getting your way through blunt violence is hardly a 21st century solution... a lesson perhaps the US could do with learning too.. but I doubt it is going to happen in either case.
