    It puzzles me who the intended target readership is for a foreign (non-Russian owned) English-language website that portrays itself as a "Russian" site. I suspect its purpose is to influence perceptions among Western readers and English-speaking pro-US/EU Russians of the Yabloko persuasion.

    Either way, its crap and not worth the drain on ones monthly bandwidth allowance.

    "Uncle S(h)am was banking on Russian capabilities to be permanently degraded after the 1990s collapse."

    Yep, and that's one of the many reasons why the US establishment HATES Putin with such a passion. Contrary to their fevered wet-dream fantasies, Russia has not collapsed into a fragmented, dying and decrepit sh!thole whose wealth, energy and resources are controlled by Western big-capital and whose capacity for self-defense is near zero (though that is likely the fate of Ukraine under its current Ukrop regime).

    Behind closed doors where public appearances are no longer relevant, Washington is enraged that Moscow can still defend itself and its people, and that her capacity for self-defence is such that she will exact an unacceptably high price on HATO should hostilities break-out.

    My view? That's simply tough sh!t HATO... The word is changing, the center of power is shifting Eastwards, and there is zip that you sociopathic greedy ba$tards can do about it.

    Russian Aerospace Defense to Get New Radars, Shed Older Models

    Russian Aerospace Defense Forces (VKO) want to get rid of older radar models for the benefit of newer generation.

    Russian Aerospace Defense Forces (VKO) plan to cut the number of radar units produced for the air defense of Moscow and the Central region four times, however VKO will boost the production of new generation air defense systems, VKO spokesperson Alexei Zototukhin told RIA Novosti.

    "Due to the introduction of new generations of radars to air- and ballistic missile defense systems, capable of detecting a wide range of high-altitude and high speed targets, the range of purchased radar systems and air defense units may be reduced two times in 2016 and four times, starting 2021," — Zolotukhin said.

    According to Zolotukhin, this will improve maintainability of new radar units and cancel the operation of older models.

    He also added that the production of new radar models, coming into service this year, will be doubled.

    Last month, Zoloukhin said VKO will carry out eight drills throughout 2015 that will involve firing exercises with air defense missile systems.

    Russian Aerospace Defense Forces to Hold 200 Summer Exercises

    According to Defense Ministry, Russia's Aerospace Defense Forces (ADF) will launch over 200 combat training exercises this summer starting Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia's Aerospace Defense Forces (ADF) will launch over 200 combat training exercises this summer starting Monday, June 1, including as part of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) united air defense system "Combat Commonwealth-2015," the Defense Ministry announced Sunday.

    "In the summer period, ADF forces will conduct over 10 command and staff exercises with affiliated commands and units, three tactical live-fire exercises, including joint exercises of the united CIS air defense 'Combat Commonwealth-2015' with the use of S-400 'Triumf' and Pantsir-S [anti-aircraft weapons systems]," the ministry said in statement.

    "In total, approximately 200 combat training events are planned. This substantially increases the intensity of practical weapons training," the Defense Ministry's statement adds.

    The Aerospace Defense Forces is a branch of the Russian Armed Forces responsible for air and missile defense. It was established in late 2011 to replace the Russian Space Forces and combine all space and some air defense components within one service.

    Among other things, the ADF is tasked with detecting and intercepting ballistic missiles, monitoring space objects and preempting any potential threats in or from space, as well as launching military and civilian satellites.

    Over 30 Innovative Arms to Be Supplied to Russian Aerospace Force Soon

    The Russian Aerospace Defense Forces will be equipped with over 30 newly-designed arms in the coming years, Russian Defense Ministry said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia marks Space Force Day annually on October 4. On December 1, 2011, the national Space Force became part of the Russian Aerospace Defense Force, a newly-established arm of the service.

    "More than 30 development projects on creation of systems and complexes of the new generation in the coming years are being implemented in order to reequip [Russian] Aerospace Forces' command and military units," the ministry's press service told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

    The press service also noted that command-measuring systems of the new generation are actively being developed for the Titov Main Test and Space Systems Control Centre, which controls Russian orbital group spacecraft, numbering 140 satellites, including 90 military.

    The Space Force emerged as an independent arm of the service in 2001 and was called upon to promptly notify supreme military-political leaders about missile attacks, to monitor outer space and the situation in separate missile-defense districts, to repel an enemy attack in and from outer space and to support peacetime and wartime operations of the Russian Armed Forces.

    Russia Developing Unique Radar Satellite System

    A group of Russian companies are currently cooperating to develop a cutting-age satellite radar system for country’s Defense Ministry.

    The new system will allow for creating a precise 3D model of Earth as well as tracking ground objects.

    "In the beginning of 2015, the Defense Industrial Commission decided that Russia will develop the system on its own. Then, a roadmap was agreed," a source in the industry told the Russian newspaper Izvestia.

    According to the project design, the system will comprise five satellite vehicles. The first launch is scheduled for 2019, the source added.

    The key component of the new system is an active phased array antenna for the on-board radar station.

    Russia’s Roselektronika Company is expected to develop, test and unveil the first Russian-made transmitter-receiver device in the first quarter of 2016.

    Earlier it was reported that the Defense Ministry wanted to purchase a radar system from Airbus Defense and Space (ADS).

    In 2013, Russia’s Lavochkin Research and Production Association won the tender. The company was expected to buy electronic parts for the radar from ADS and then mount them on the satellite platform. After the West imposed sanctions against a number of Russian companies over the Ukrainian crisis the decision was made to develop the entire system in Russia.

    If the project is successful Russia could import such systems, specialists said.

    Russian Aerospace Forces to Receive Advanced Missile Defenses

    The Russian Aerospace Forces will receive a modernized missile defense system in the near future, Colonel Andrei Cheburin announced.

    "I’m sure that in the short-term perspective we will receive an upgraded missile defense system," Cheburin told RSN Radio.

    He noted that currently the modernization of missile defenses is underway which will seriously enhance their combat capabilities.

    Cheburin added that this year an interceptor missile was successfully launched from the Sary-Shagan range.

    "We also successfully located and tracked all ballistic missiles launched from our continent," he said.

    Russian Aerospace Capabilities, Warning Systems to Provide Security by 2021

    The capabilities of intelligence and warning systems will provide for the timely warning of an airspace attack, according to the head of Russia’s Aerospace General Staff.

    Russian Aerospace Forces’ intelligence capabilities and its early missile attack warning systems will provide for the country’s security and response decision-making by 2021, the head of Russia’s Aerospace General Staff said Monday.

    “The capabilities of intelligence systems and warning systems of aerospace enemy attacks will provide for the timely warning of an aerospace attack with the goal of making a decision on responsive actions, including the use of strategic nuclear forces,” Lt.-Gen. Pavel Kurachenko said.

    New missile defences being developed

    New missile defences being developed
    3 February 2016 Vadim Matveyev, specially for RIR

    http://in.rbth.com/economics/defence/2016/02/03/new-missile-defences-being-developed_564505

    Russia plans to overhaul its missile defence system and is developing a state-of-the-art anti-ballistic missile (ABM) defence shield, Colonel Andrei Cheburin, commander of the missile defence wing of Russia's Aerospace Defence Forces, said.

    Colonel Andrei Cheburin, speaking on January 23, said Russia's anti-ballistic missile (ABM) system was being completely overhauled over the past few years. "I think that in the near future our country will have a truly ultramodern missile defence system," he concluded.

    In autumn of 2012, Russia’s defence authorities stated that the functional ABM system, the A-135 Amur, was being given a major upgrade. Colonel General (Retired) Viktor Yesin, then chief of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, told RIA Novosti that the missiles were being replaced with new ones with an improved design. All the other elements of the system, including the detection and tracking components, were also being revamped. The missiles would use launch silos currently mothballed, he added.

    Enemy at the Gates


    The threat America's ABM system being expanded over the past two years has prompted Russia to step up its work to develop a new ABM system of its own. The new system, which will replace the A-135 Amur, has been designated as the A-235.

    There are two aspects to the project: the RTTs-181M system, which is effectively an A-235 system, and the Samolyot-M aircraft, including the design of new warheads for the ABMs. The work is being done in secrecy and kept under wraps, so very few details are available.

    According to what information is available, the new-generation system should include upgraded Don-2NP radar receiver sections and transition section units, which will be replaced soon by the Don-2M radar. The upgradation was done in 2009 by RTI Systems. The computer and control centres will be given a new Elbrus-3M supercomputer in place of the outdated Elbrus-2. The system is expected to be used along with the Taiga early warning system now being developed.

    Different ranges

    The A-235 will have missiles capable of operating at three different ranges: long-range, based on the 51T6 and capable of destroying targets at distances up to 1500 km (930 miles), at altitudes up to 800,000 m; medium-range, an update of the 58R6, designed to hit targets at distances up to 1000 km (620 miles), at altitudes up to 120,000 m; and short-range (the 53T6M or 45T6 (based on the 53T6)), with an operating range of 350 km (215 miles) and a flight ceiling of 40,000-50,000 m.

    The long-range missiles will most likely be equipped with nuclear warheads, while the others will have kinetic energy warheads. Testing of new missiles for the A-235 Samolyot-M system began in August 2014.

    Defending Moscow

    Russia's present ABM system, in service since 1971 and part of the defence system for Moscow and Russia's central industrial region, comprises the 5N20 Don-2N radar, two 5K80 computer and control centres equipped with Elbrus and Zarya computing systems, connected to the Oko and Oko-1 early warning satellite systems, as well as to 32 51T6 long-range ABMs, and 68 53T6 short-range ABMs.

    The 51T6 (A-925) Azov ABM (NATO reporting name: SH-11/ABM-4 GORGON) can hit targets outside the atmosphere. It was taken out of service between 2002 and 2003 owing to the expiry of its useful life. Its launch silos were then mothballed and may be used for the new long-range ABMs. The 53T6 (PRS-1) short-range ABM (NATO reporting name: SH-08/ABM-3A GAZELLE) is still in service.

    "These technologies are really used, and working on that not only our scientists, but also abroad. Of course, this is one of the areas of future weapons submarines", — he told on air of radio station "Echo of Moscow".
    In 2008, Russia began large-scale military reform, the key point of which was the rearmament program of the Armed forces (AF) of the Russian Federation. In 2010 it was decided to allocate re-equipment by 2020 20 trillion rubles to increase the share of new military equipment to 70%

    Regarding weapons that can hit satellites... that would be S-500 and of course who are you going to blame for its existance... it was the unilateral withdrawl by the US that made the S-500 possible... they had nothing like that planned or could be planned at the time.

    Now they have road mobile A-235s and soon S-500s to shoot down US satellites.

    AFAIK they stopped that system, though it had potential it did violate the 1972 ABM treaty.

    Of course now they are developing S-500, A-235, and other missiles able to reach satellites it just makes sense to have an air launched weapon too... a Mach 4.2 Mig-41 would be the ideal platform too... Smile

    True but article main topic was

    S-500 on subs?

    The question is what does the S-500 look like... if it is the same or similar size to S-300P/F then it could be loaded into Poliment Redut and most new Russian ships can carry it... and with lock on after launch capability it could easily be fitted to subs too.

    Subs are currently very vulnerable to air power like MPAs, but the lock on after launch technology being developed for Morfei and the lock on after launch capability of ARH missiles like 9M96 would be very potent against MPAs and helos as well as UAVs...

    And the ability to covertly send a sub to a region of the earth to fire anti satellite missiles before they pass over a sensitive region could be very useful to Russia.

    Thaad-er is similar to s-500 in operational range atleast.

    I haven't seen any range figures for THAAD ER...

    Judging by presentation shots, THAAD ER is to have x3 the range of baseline THAAD. Which should be about 600 km give or take.

    But GarryB, lock on after launch is basically old technology, anything special about this tech w.r.t Morfei?

    The US and of late China have deployed several ocean-floor surveillance network. There is every possibility that Russian submarines will be detected by them. Better to stay within Russian waters and fire the anti satellite missile.
