    Are those containers coming in pairs or each one separately? I see those "push to lock" mechanisms there.

    CEO NIIP Tikhomirov, Yuri White: "Among the mobile medium-range SAM equal complex" Buk-M3 'combat effectiveness, there is no "

    http://militarynews.ru/story.asp?rid=2&nid=437838

    For information on how to solve any problem capable of "Buk-M3", what its advantages over other mobile complexes of medium-range air defense missile system is planned to whether the offer for export has told to "Interfax-AVN" CEO NIIP Tikhomirov, Yuri WHITE.

    - Yuri Ivanovich, what new SAM "Buk-M3" is different from the systems "Buk" of previous generations, which today are in service with the Army troops? -


    SAM "Buk-M3" - this is the fourth generation of mobile systems, medium-range, which is the main developer of our institute. By the way, 23 January marks 50 years from the date adopted the first set of "Cube", which was delivered to 27 countries under the export name "Square". Despite his advanced age he still is in service with a number of countries and is still in the "Rosoboronexport" proposals come with a request for its modernization. A new generation of complex "Buk-M3", while maintaining the overall structure of the construction of SAM "Buk-M2", dramatically surpasses it in the main tactical and technical characteristics. Firstly, Ammunition missiles as part of the division significantly increased, which is obviously significantly increases the combat effectiveness of the complex at the reflection of a massive raid of air attack. Now on each self-propelled fire installation (SDA) instead of 4 ready for battle missiles located 6, and each launcher (PU) instead of 8 to 12 missiles. Second, significantly increased the kill zone the whole range of purposes from wind to tactical and cruise missiles, enhanced immunity, vitality and reliability of the system. Third, through the use of semikatkovyh (instead shestikatkovyh) crawler chassis increased throughput and load capacity of combat weapons complex, and the use of special transport-launch containers for missiles has improved performance.

    - What is a rocket used in the SAM "Buk-M3": the same as in the previous complexes, or brand new?


    Will she be able to hit ballistic and highly maneuverable high-speed targets such as cruise missile?  - For SAM "Buk-M3" Dolgoprudnenskoye NPP is designed and manufactured entirely new missile 9M317M that has no analogues in the world in its class. Unlike 9M317 missile complex "Buk-M2" of its performance characteristics are increased by almost half, and, of course, greatly increased performance for the defeat of tactical ballistic missiles and cruise missiles. However, in the new complex is provided and shooting missiles 9M317 by using start-charging units (ROM) from the SAM "Buk-M2".

    - Has practical shooting SAM "Buk-M3" before sending them to the troops, whether in these firings military experts involved?


    - Yes, of course, provided such shooting applicable standards for the transfer of technology public customers. Including held with the participation of military experts on the successful launch of a target simulating a tactical ballistic missiles. With regard to military staff calculations, these firings are usually carried out later.

    - How it was organized retraining crews on SAM "Buk-M3"? -


    The developer task is to create a design and operational documentation. Furthermore, the state customer usually orders combat weapons development simulators complex. A self learning calculations carried out in special training centers of the Ministry of Defence.

    - When delivered Russian Defense Ministry complex will step up combat duty?


    - The answer to a question - the competence of the government customer

    Whether the development is underway Marine version of the complex "Buk-M3"?


    - The development of naval air defense system - it is not our profile. Marine air defense systems such as "Calm", "Hurricane", which used missile complexes series "Beech", developing other businesses VKO Group "Almaz-Antey".

    - Will SAM "Buk-M3" offered for export, and if so, when advertising a passport for that product will be issued?


    - Yes, the task set by the Group CEO of EKO "Almaz-Antey" Ian V. Novikov, and currently is working on a passport image export. On approval of the parent organizations, we offered to give the name of the export version of the complex - "Area". The proposed name is associated with the name of the first-generation air defense system in export version - "Square". It appears that the wide popularity of the complex "Square" abroad will contribute to successful promotion in the external market complex "Buk-M3E" ( "Area"), figuratively speaking - "Square" with a bang!

    - Do you have SAM "Buk-M3" foreign counterparts?


    - According to information available to us on the combat effectiveness among mobile complexes class of medium-range equal complex "Buk-M3 'does not exist. To some extent, can be attributed to an analog of the complex European SAMP-T.

    - The forum "Army 2016" was announced, that started development work on the creation of anti-aircraft missile systems of medium-range fifth generation. How long does it take to develop this complex, when it can be put into service?


    - Yes, the company EKO "Almaz-Antey" took a principled decision on the continuation of work on the line SAM "Buk" without waiting for the official registration of the TOR (terms of reference) from the Ministry of Defense. This decision was approved by a panel MIC and such work takes place at the expense of own funds of the Group. From domestic and foreign experience of creating such complex high-tech systems require about 7-10 years. Of course, we all hope that the period of development will not be repeated "hard times" of the 1990s.

    Russian Eastern Military district to learn how to use Buk-M2 air defense missile system

    The Russian Eastern Military District’s air defense large unit based in Buryatiya in East Siberia will learn to operate the advanced Buk-M2 (NATO reporting name: SA-17 Grizzly) surface-to-air missile (SAM) system, the district’s press office said.


    Buk-M2 System

    "The servicemen will start learning to operate advanced Buk-M2 air defense missile systems in mid-May at the air defense training center in Orenburg [in the south Urals]," the press office said. The troops will undergo a six-month training course that will culminate in a field live-firing exercise.

    "During the training course, the crews will study the operational capabilities of the system and take examinations in safety measures. During the practical part of the training course, the servicemen will learn to load the launchers with missiles and operate the system’s electronic equipment and perform simulated missile launches," the press office said. When the servicemen complete the training course, they will return to their base in Buryatiya with the advanced Buk-M2 systems.

    The Buk-M2 air defense missile system was developed in 1988 but its serial production began 15 years later. Now, the system is among the most effective weapons of the same class. The Buk-M2 system has a range of 50 kilometers, a target engagement altitude of 0.01-25 kilometers, a multiple target engagement capability of 24 targets and a deployment time of five minutes. The speed of targets the system can handle is 1,100 m/s.

    Buk is a solid system. The fact that it was able to take down most of the PGM's is pretty damn good. I am very curious about M3's performance. If these are the cases, I hope they end up on ships instead of the current failure systems.

    The systems at sea that are not working are the 120km S-350 missiles... the 40km range S-350 missiles seem to be working fine and it would be the 40km range missiles that would be used against incoming munitions.. together with Naval TOR and Pantsir/Kahstan... and also (10-15km range) Morfei.

    https://function.mil.ru/news_page/country/more.htm?id=12153286@egNews

    Here says the 3rd one..

    The 53rd anti-aircraft missile brigade became the third air defense unit of the Russian Ground Forces, which received new Buk-M3 9K317M SAM systems. The first at the end of 2016 the brigade kit of the Buk-M3 air defense missile system was received by the anti-aircraft missile brigade of the new formation, formed as part of the new 8th Guards Common Arms Army of the Southern Military District. In 2017, two more Brigade sets of Buk-M3 missile systems were delivered to the Ministry of Defense, the first of which was received at the end of 2016, a new 35th anti-aircraft missile brigade of the 36th Combined-Arms Army of the Eastern Military District with a dislocation in Djida (Buryatia) ( originally in 2016 this brigade was planned for equipping the Buk-M2 air defense missile system), and the second set now went to re-equip the 53rd anti-aircraft missile brigade in Kursk.

    The "Buk-M3" air defense missile system is supplied by JSC "Ulyanovsk Mechanical Plant", which is a part of JSC "Concern VKO Almaz-Antey". The structure of the Buk-M3 complex (the developer of the NIIP named after VV Tikhomirov) includes the command post 9S510M, the station for detection and target designation with the 9S36M radar, two self-propelled self-propelled guns (SOA) 9A317M with six antiaircraft guided missiles 9M317M in the TPK, one or two transport-launchers (TPU) 9A316M with 12 anti-aircraft guided missiles 9M317M in the TPK, as well as transport-charging machines (TZM) 9T243.

    Interesting. There was reports of an Eastern District unit such as the 8th but not much. Guess it makes sense to not bring in any more BUK-M2's when you are upgrading even further.

    Russia’s state arms seller rolls out export version of Buk-M3 air defense missile system

    Russia’s state arms seller has started promoting the export version of Buk-M3 ‘Viking’ medium-range air defense missile systems on foreign markets

    MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. Russia’s state arms seller Rosoboronexport (part of hi-tech corporation Rostec) has started promoting the export version of Buk-M3 ‘Viking’ medium-range air defense missile systems on foreign markets, the company’s press office reported on Wednesday.

    "That’s good news for us and our foreign partners. The ‘Viking’ complex preserves the best characteristics of the famous line of the ‘Buk’ air defense missile systems and represents a milestone in the development of the medium-range ADMS," the press office quoted Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General Sergey Ladygin as saying. "The producers gave unique characteristics to it, which are in line with the current requirements for troops’ and infrastructure protection against the strikes of present-day and future air assault weapons in the conditions of radio-electronic countermeasures and firing. The ‘Viking’ has no countertypes today in the world armaments market," Ladygin added.

    The ‘Viking’ was developed and designed taking into account world market trends. Its technical characteristics allow the system to be adapted to the greatest possible extent for the priorities of Rosoboronexport’s foreign customers, the company said.

    In comparison with the Buk-M2E ADMS, the Viking’s range of fire has increased nearly by 1.5 times to 65 kilometers. Besides, the number of targets simultaneously engaged by the system has also increased by 1.5 times to six for each self-propelled launcher while the number of ready-for-launch air defense missiles in one firing position made of two combat units has grown from 8 to 18, Rosoboronexport said.

    The ‘Viking’ ADMS has received a number of unique features, which were not previously available in any air defense missile system. For instance, it has the capability of integrating launchers from the Antei-2500 ADMS, which provides for the capability of target engagement at a distance up to 130 kilometers and will boost the efficiency of the whole air defense grouping in the fight against enemy’s pilot-controlled aviation, the press release says.

    "Commissioned by the Russian Armed Forces, the Buk-M3 system and its export version ‘Viking’ have proved a very high level of combat efficiency during their daily operation and exercises. The ‘Viking’ has a very high ‘kill’ probability in relation to enemy’s aviation, attacking elements of precision-guided munitions, as well as tactical ballistic and cruise missiles, maritime and ground targets," Ladygin said.

    The switch to BUK happened a few years ago. The old SA-6 KUB were passed over to Armenian Air Defence units who still operate them as of today.

    Who develop seeker for Buk missiles ? Altair or Agat ?

    I heard that Russians got deliveries of the new 9M317MA missiles for Shtil, this missile is an active radar homer. There would also be Buk MZ with same missile but i expect M3 will also get it.

    The question however.. what make this active radar seeker seems to be more successful than the one in S-350 ?. The S-350 despite being continuosly tested and declared "operational" has not seen any real delivery to the armed service, same problem also plagued Poliment-redut. The problem AFAIK was in the active radar seeker.
