    Forewarned is Forearmed: Russia Boosts Its Missile Defense Capabilities

    Using a new type of radar, Russia is about to establish a global early warning network rivaling that of the USSR.

    According to the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper, the mainstay of this global defense system will be formed of the third generation Voronezh-type radar stations.

    The Voronezh-class radar system includes three variants, including the Voronezh M, Voronezh-DM (using VHF and UHF), and the Voronezh-VP 'high potential', assumed to be EHF (extremely high frequency). The system's range is between 4,500 – 6,000 km, and it is capable of detecting objects at a height of up to 4,000 km.

    Furthermore, Voronezh-class radar is made of factory-built modules and can therefore be rapidly constructed in about a year and a half, while it usually takes from 5 to 9 years to build a radar station of equal capabilities.

    Following the dissolution of the USSR, Russia's early warning capability was dealt a severe blow as many of its elements located in the former Soviet republics were promptly shut down by the new authorities. Now however, with the implementation of cutting-edge technologies, the new network is set to surpass its Soviet predecessor and provide early-warning coverage for the entire territory of Russia.

    Meanwhile, Russian Armed Forces have deployed two batteries of K-300P Bastion coastal defense missile systems at the Kola Peninsula. According to the Izvestiya newspaper, the deployed weapons cover about 1,500 kilometers of Russia’s coastline in the region and effectively transform a sizeable portion of the Barents Sea into a 'dead zone' for NATO warships.

    A K-300P battery consists of 12 mobile launchers equipped with P-800 Oniks anti-ship missiles with a range of 300 kilometers.

    Following a recent deployment of this type of missile launchers to Crimea, Russia can now engage and destroy any hostile target in both the Black Sea and the Barents Sea, the newspaper remarks, pointing out that the country’s Ministry of Defense didn’t specify where it might deploy these weapons next.

    New early-warning radar in Olenegorsk is under construction

    Construction of the new early-warning radar at the Olenegorsk site began in the spring of 2016. At this point it's just a hole in the ground and the flat terrain makes geolocation rather difficult. But the new site is probably not far from the old Dnepr/Daugava site.

    This is probably the last in the series of new early-warning radars that Russia will build in the coming years. At least that was the plan in 2013. It appears that the new Olenegorsk radar will be of the Voronezh-VP type, similar to those built in Mishelevka and Vorkuta.

    The construction of the early-warning radar in Vorkuta that began in September 2015 has made enough progress to be visible from space.

    New Voronezh EW radar being installed in Yeniseisk detected it's first ballistic object over North America.

    MOSCOW, October 5 -. RIA Novosti latest radar high prefabrication (RLS VZG) "Voronezh-DM" in the district of Yeniseisk Krasnoyarsk Territory for the first time discovered on the northeast missile-direction real ballistic target, told RIA Novosti press-service of the concern "RTI" .

    In Russia in the early 2000s, it was decided to create a series of high-tech radar VZG "Voronezh-DM", including in the Yenisei region, for improving the national warning system (EWS). This early warning radar is designed to control the previously naked northeastern missile-dangerous directions - from North America. This radar is able to determine the exact coordinates of the starting place ballistic targets and to accompany them.

    "The real ballistic target with a precise definition of its trajectory characteristics of the first discovered radar VZG" Voronezh-DM ", located in the city of Yeniseisk District (Krasnoyarsk region). Thus, confirmed the correctness of the decisions made on the establishment of a number of radar early warning in order to ensure the country's defense" - said the press service of the company.

    What kind of a ballistic target was detected and at what time, not officially reported.

    General Director of OJSC "RTI", general designer Sergey Boev national early warning system for the successful implementation of the most important tasks of the state expressed his gratitude to the labor collectives of JSC "SPC" NIIDAR ", JSC" Radio Engineering Institute named after Academician AL Mintz "and other enterprises involved in the creation of the radar.

    Last week, Russian media reported that a newly built Voronezh-DM early warning radar system in Siberia successfully detected its first missile launch from the United States. Commenting on the news, military journalist Vladimir Tuchkov remarked that the detection was proof that the new EWS network is already paying off, even before being completed.
