    It is part of NEBO-M complex. On this link you can read the basics about it. Russia usually tides one Nebo-M per S-400 regiment but Nebo-M is produced separately for Russian radio troops too.

    Ah not sure, considering it does not carry larger antenna to jam VHF band.

    If you knew how this thing works and under what circumstances you would be far more reserved to say at least Very Happy

    I am sure the people who operate the EA-18 and other such SEAD aircraft know very well how it works.

    This can be done without EA-18 right ? I wonder why should be EA-18 ? HARM capability ? Nah because HARM seeker is still too small to pick VHF wavelength. You may need more conventional means which will of course be met with those who guard the radar like TOR or Pantsyr.

    You don't need an anti-radiation type seeker to home in on a radar. GPS guided JDAMs can be used - even TV or IIR guided weapons can be used.

    I know that an AESA beast like NEBO series should be difficult to jam (you'd need a lot of power to begin with - before we even mention its frequency agility capability) - but the radars on TOR-M and Tunguska?

    To bomb the Nebo M system and its various radars, what did you think I was referring to being bombed? And were did I mention Russia. It's easy to locate a ground based air defence radar - do I have to explain to you why?

    Or hitting its defensive assets that are specifically made to shoot down PGMs.

    Still far more than EA-18G. Nebo-M is highly mobile radar complex and it work inside IADS, so there will be quite a lot of S-300, S-400, Tor, Pantsir, etc around as well as fighter planes. Nebo-M is only one very capable element here.

    How many units of S-400 do you think exist in the world and how many short range AD systems are available to protect it? You seem to be talking about a lot of AD assets in one spot. how many missiles are carried on a Tor launcher unit, 8? An RAF Tornado can carry up to 12 Brimstone missiles. I don't doubt that that such a dense multi-layered air defence system can be overwhelmed quickly enough with enough decoys and and cheap missiles.

    I'm gonna let you in on a secret. The EA-18 and it's electronic warfare suite has been compromised according to the Pentagon:


    "F/A and EA-18"

    "Electronic Intelligence Processing"

    "Electronic Warfare systems"

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/a-list-of-the-us-weapons-designs-and-technologies-compromised-by-hackers/2013/05/27/a95b2b12-c483-11e2-9fe2-6ee52d0eb7c1_story.html


    ...So don't be so sure that the EA-18 may work as effectively against an advanced and capable enemy, and not like the poorly trained 3rd world military's that the Pentagon usually loves to pick fights with. *cough, Iraq, cough*

    You don't need an anti-radiation type seeker to home in on a radar. GPS guided JDAMs can be used - even TV or IIR guided weapons can be used.

    You do and you don't.

    To home in on the radar signal you do need an anti radiation type seeker, but in the wavelengths the radar operates you would need a missile with an enormous antenna... which is just not practical.

    To guide a weapon to destroy it you need to locate the target precisely, which most small aircraft can't do because their antennas are the wrong size to operate in the frequency it operates in. A satellite photo could give you the coordinates and it is a large target, but weapons like satellite guided missiles and bombs need to penetrate the IADS structure so a couple of TOR systems would prevent attacks effectively and a few S-400 batteries would deal with the launch platforms of those laser, satellite, TV, IIR guided bombs/missiles.

    I know that an AESA beast like NEBO series should be difficult to jam (you'd need a lot of power to begin with - before we even mention its frequency agility capability) - but the radars on TOR-M and Tunguska?

    Jamming performance decreases rapidly with distance... there is no point trying to jam TOR or Tunguska as they will be the last of your problems if NEBO is still operating. The whole idea of long range SAMs with long range radar protected by medium and short range SAMs is that the long range radar and SAMs take out enemy launch platforms at extended ranges, so only very long range weapons have a chance of engaging those long range SAMs and Radars. TOR or Tunguska would deal with any leakers... but these will generally be long range weapons that somehow slipped through... the chance of any jamming aircraft getting close enough to the TOR or Tunguska to effectively jam them is very low. Both TOR and Tunguska and Pantsir-S1 have operating modes that exclude jamming and an option too...

    You seem to be talking about a lot of AD assets in one spot. how many missiles are carried on a Tor launcher unit, 8? An RAF Tornado can carry up to 12 Brimstone missiles. I don't doubt that that such a dense multi-layered air defence system can be overwhelmed quickly enough with enough decoys and and cheap missiles.

    The new production TOR carries 16 ready to launch missiles in each vehicle with a smallest tactical element being a battery which consists of 4 launch vehicles. So one TOR battery will have 64 ready to launch SAMs. Brimstone is based on Hellfire so it is rather unlikely to get within launch range as the TOR battery will likely be co-located with at least an S-350 battery or an S-400 battery which will deal with enemy aircraft.

    NEBO wont operate on Russias borders, but will be positioned slightly back and use its range to scan for targets out to very long range with likely several layers of protection from ground and air elements.

    Pantsir have 12 missiles and 2 guns, Tor-M2U have 16 missiles. Also their basic unit is battery, so minimum 4 Tors or 6 Pantsirs in battery. Add to them medium and long range SAMs in their layered IADS as well as guns and MANPADs in wider area and fighter squadrons operating inside IADS, than you could get the picture. How many Tornados will come near Nebo-M radar through layered IADS with S-300, S-400, Buks, Tors, etc and squadrons of Su-30 and Su-35 in the air? Nebo-M is 1000 km range mobile early warning radar complex, but not the only one, as there are also various OTH radars, smaller early warning radars, portable radars, ELINT complexes, ECM complexes, visual observation network, AWACS planes, etc. Believe me, Russian and Chinese IADS are too hard nuts for US and NATO.

    A full battery, as others have mentioned above, will have a fairly large amount of these various systems.

    A *Brimstone* armed Tornado is going to get shot out of the sky *long* before it gets anywhere near an S-300PMU or S-400 battery.

    60KM max range ASM vs. a 150-250KM range SAM? Is that a joke?!

    Right, just throw more aircraft into the grinder - and the victory is yours.

    Seriously, new russian SAMs are heavy on ECCM.

    Quite a lot of S-300, S-400, Tor, Pantsir, etc - where?
    Actually, there are AA units of the Army with Tors and Buks and Air Defence forces with Pansirs, S-300/400 and AD airforces plus VVS. All those units work in a cooperation.

    Even serbians used quite an effective tactics, turning radar active or passive in case of an air strike. So, tactics is also counts

    It is possible to breakthrough any AA with a massive joint strike of aircrafts and cruise missiles, still ground AA will consentrate on a possible breakthrough axis as will AD aviation. And the army or fleet will possibly try a preemptive strike on the concentrating enemy forces in case to weaken the strike
