    I’ve two sources now which indicate that the S-300V4 deployment in the “western district” is in fact the elite unit 202 AD BGD at Naro-Fominsk

    Frst source: “warfare.be”.



    Second source: Information from an eyewhitness who observed the new 9S32M (the only equipment which differs externaly from the original one) at the perimeter of this garrison this spring.

    Unsuccessful test of a modernised missile for the Antey-2500 at Plesetsk

    Missile fell shortly after launch from the Plesetsk cosmodrome on Wednesday , April 22, reports "Interfax" referring to the press service of the Almaz Antey concern. During the start-up the anti-aircraft missiles deviated from the desired path and activated the self destruct mechanism. The test cycle will continue in the future.

    Second source: Information from an eyewhitness who observed the new 9S32M (the only equipment which differs externaly from the original one) at the perimeter of this garrison this spring.

    Here are the known deployment sites

    Deployment

    6 Deployment sites 2015:
    --Yushno-Sachalinsk (Sachalin): 31st AD BGD?   (46.880575° 142.787908°)
    --Birobidzhan (Jewish Autonomous Oblast): 1724th AD RGT (ex 203rd AD BGD) (garrison 48.725628° 132.971802° - launch site 48.719151° 132,973342°)
    --Chebarkul (Tscheljabinsk): 28th AD BGD (1722nd AD RGT?) (55.002911° 60.371375°)
    --Naro-Fominsk (Moscow): 202nd AD BGD: since 2015 S-300V4 (55.408483° 36.741270°)
    --Znamensk (Kaliningrad): 43rd AD BGD (1545th AD RGT?) (garrison 54.602107° 21.233617° - launch site 54.601038° 21.238220°)
    --Gyumri (Armenia): 988th AD RGT (40.761287° 43.956965°)

    Previous locations (use History Layer in google earth):
    --Strugi Krasnye / Vladimirskyy Lager (Pskov):1544th AD RGT (58.206718° 29.061801°)
    --Tavrichanka (Primorskij): 8th AD BGD? (43.358464° 131.863060°)
    -- Pervomayskiy (Orenburg): 1722nd AD BGD (51.597513° 55.013695°) – changed location to Chebarkul and became 28th AD BGD

    It seems to be pointless to discuss Brigade or Regiment structure. This differs in the past for some S-300V units.
    The essential thing is that there are “Big Units” (you may call them Brigade or Regiment level) which consist of “smaller units” (you may call them Battalion or Battery level).
    The most garrisons (in google earth) do not suggest a full 4 Batt contingent. Many of them obviously have only 2 firing units (much like S-400 units)

    S-300V unit (= Brigade or Regiment level = big unit)

    Target detection unit:
    9S457 command post
    9S15 all-round surveillance radar
    9S19 sector surveillance radar

    Missile & technical support unit:
    -maintenance and repair equipment for all system components, as well as a missile integrated computer assisted functional testing unit
    -missile TLC (transport launch container) short term storage and transportation facilities , as well as a rigging equipment set for missiles loading/unloading
    -training aids

    S-300V firing unit (= Battalion or Battery  level  = sub unit)

    Up to 4 SAM firing units – (Russian Army often use only 2 firing units in each of the big units)
    Each firing unit has usually 6 TELs: This can be 9A83 or 9A82 only, or might be a mix of 9A83/9A82 TELs and
    3-6 LLVs 9A85 or 9A84, or a mix of 9A85/9A84 LLVs –
    Typical mix:
    4 TEL 9A83 with four 9M83 missile tubes each
    2 corresponding launcher-loader vehicles 9A85 with four 9M83 missile tubes each
    2 TEL 9A82 with two 9M82 missile tubes each
    1 corresponding launcher-loader vehicle 9A84 with two 9M82 missile tubes each
    Each launcher has at least the same amount of missles as reload

    P.S.: If someone has more information about the correct unit designations please let me know

    1. Have seen this as the 312th     Yushno-Sachalinsk (Sachalin): 31st AD BGD?   (46.880575° 142.787908°)
    2. Firing unit org is correct in regards to launch vehicles. This unit western equivalent would be a battery but is a battalion in Russian terminology. Usual translation calls it a division.
    3. My understanding is that there will be 20 of these spread amongst 10 Brigades or Regiments upon modernization. Probably some mixing with Buk-2 to form AD Brigades.
    4. A brigade used to represent 4 subunits while a regiment represented 2-3. It also can represent whither or not the unit is a mixed equipment or only of one type.

    36 is an average TELAR/TEL load per regiment/batallion not brigade. I say average - not max and per regiment not brigade.

    Maximum number of TEL/TELAR per regiment/batallion is 60 giving maximum number of 192 ready to fire missiles.

    Maximum number of TEL/TELAR per ONE brigade is 240 with 768 ready to fire missiles.

    Russia currently has abt. 60-70 9S32Mx shooting radars deployed meaning max number of simultaneously guided missiles somewhere in between of 720-840 on 360-420 different targets Very Happy

    Heavenly Guardian

    Author Victor Khudoleev, "Red Star"


    December 26, 2015 in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation noted the 100th anniversary of the founding of the military defense. In the rapid development of air and space attack foreign armies connection parts and air defense units have become an integral part of the combined arms formations from tactical to operational and strategic level.

    Currently, there is a scheduled re army air defense to the new S-300V4, "Buk-M2", "Thor M2U" MANPADS "Willow." According to head of the Air Defense Forces Lieutenant-General Alexander Leonov, who spoke on the occasion of the anniversary of the radio station "Russian news service", S-300V4, the range of which is up to 350 km, it is able to deal with almost all means of air attack, including hypersonic.The complex allows to deal with any means of air attack, including "AWACS" planes reconnaissance, jammers. C-300V4, said Lieutenant General Leonov, has two types of missiles, one of them - hypersonic, which allows you to hit the target by ballistic hypersonic aircraft.

    In 2016, the Army planned to deliver the first set of Brigadier anti-aircraft missile complex of medium-range "Buk-M3." For this perspective the complex, said Lt. Gen. Alexander Leonov, created a unique new missile: "In launching transporting containers are six missiles on each self-propelled fire installation. Rockets have become more compact, but nevertheless they fly faster, farther and more accurately. "

    In the defense industry and lay the groundwork for the creation of long-term MANPADS, protected from the interference of the latest equipment, including laser.

    Paul Sozinov: anti-aircraft missile system S-300V4 got a new long-distance rocket

    Designer General of JSC "Concern EKR" Almaz-Antey "told Tass on last modification capabilities" trehsotki "

    Anti-aircraft missile systems (AAMS) from the group of EKR "Almaz-Antey" are in great demand not only in the Russian army, but also among the foreign customers, and contracts for the supply of these systems abroad are probably the most discussed in the world media.

    On the last modification capabilities "trehsotki" - C-300V4, a new long-range missile for it, as well as about the prospects of installing this system on automobile chassis in an interview with Tass said Chief Designer of JSC "Concern EKR" Almaz-Antey "Paul Sozinov.

    - Russia has been actively promoting the export a new air defense system "Antey-2500". What are the characteristics of this sictemy compared to the C-300B, which was produced earlier?


    - Almost all of the component parts "Anthea" fully implemented on modern element base. Of course, its performance compared to the previous generation of the S-300V systems significantly improved. Let me remind you: "Antey-2500" - the name of an export version of the C-300V4 system, it has some differences from the base established for the Russian Armed Forces.

    - That is, the C-300V4 - a completely new system, or is it still the modernization of air defense missile systems of the previous generation?

    - First, the Ministry of Defence is planning to hold a local modernization of C-300B for extending service life and improving system performance a little. However, we managed to convince the military that local upgrading is not necessary to do, and should do more modern designs. Although when creating a C-300V4 individual solutions we borrowed from previous generation systems, but in general this is actually new technology.

    - What can you say about the features of the practical application of the new system compared to the previous generations?


    - The features are many, but perhaps the main is that the C-300V4 is equipped with a new long-range missile , which is capable of solving the problem, including non-strategic missile defense. In particular, the greatly expanded range of defeats the purpose, which today has reached 400 km. That is, the aircraft airborne patrol and management, including AWACS, now can not enter with impunity in the 400-kilometer zone.

    In addition, the reduced possibility of the probable opponent Management assault and fighter aircraft. The introduction of this kind of long-range missiles is also significantly alters the interference situation that can arise when the respective reflection strikes. The same ideology is embedded in "chetyrehsotke" and other systems, including the fifth generation.

    - What are the new properties of the individual elements of the C-300V4 you could mention?

    - Primarily - higher processability of the system. Many elements of the system should be altered or re-created. This is already provided in the future the necessary quality and volume mass production.

    I stress that the establishment of this system, we were not on the way to restore individual elements of production, and on the creation of new analogues. As an example, I can cite the creation of a specialized chassis for C-300V4.

    - If we were talking about the new chassis for this system, considered it possible to create a modified C-300V4 on chassis?


    - If such a need arises, and such modification is C-300V4 will be demanded by the customer, we will launch this modification into production. In any case, the corresponding project we already have.

    Military Defense Industry Technology - S-300V4
    Published: Thursday, 19 May 2016 14:43
    Here: http://www.armyrecognition.com/weapons_defence_...

    New surface-to-air missile for S-300V4 air defense system able to engage targets out to 400 km.
    The Russian-made S-300V4 (NATO-reporting name: SA-23 Gladiator/Giant) surface-to-air missile (SAM) system has been afforded a sophisticated long-range missile designed to engage threats out to 400 km, Almaz-Antei General Designer Pavel Sozinov told TASS in an interview.

    "The S-300V4 has been equipped with an advanced long-range missile capable, inter alia, of non-strategic missile defense," he told TASS.

    According to him, the S-300V4’s range is 400 km. "That is airborne early warning and control aircraft, including the [E-3 Sentry] AWACS, will no longer be able to get in range of the 400-km-capable system scot-free," Sozinov stressed.

    He said that the SAM system has reduced the potential opponent’s fighter and attack aircraft control capability and "has considerably altered the electronic countermeasures situation that may emerge when air attacks are being repulsed."

    "The ‘400’ [S-400 Triumph] (SA-21 Growler) and other systems, including fifth-generation ones, embody the same philosophy," Almaz-Antei’s general designer added.

    Almaz-Antei has derived an S-300V4 version on a wheeled chassis and may implement the program, if the Russian Defense Ministry displays interest in it.

    "If there is a need for the S-300V4, if the version is in demand, we will launch its production. In any case, the version in question has been designed," Sozinov said.

    The S-300V4 is a recent addition to the S-300V family of army air defense missile systems. The variant has been supplied to the Russian military under an order awarded in 2012.

    A TASS source in the Russian Defense Ministry reported the service entry of the long-range SAM previously. According to him, the weapon is effective at a range of 400 km. According to official reports, the S-300V4’s range is 350 km. This is what Army Air Defense Commander Alexander Leonov has said.

    Russia's new S-300V4 air defense system to get three types of hypersonic missiles

    For the destruction of ballistic missile warheads, the air defense system missiles are for the first time equipped with a directional warhead with "light" and "heavy" strike elements


    KUBINKA (Moscow region), September 9. /TASS/. The S-300V4 anti-aircraft missile defense system, which has been supplied to the Russian troops since the end of 2014, will be equipped with three types of hypersonic missiles, a representative of Russia’s air defense weapons’ manufacturer - Almaz-Antey Concern, told reporters on Friday at the Army 2016 Forum.

    "The versatility of the S-300V4 system, according to the ‘efficiency - cost’ criterion, is achieved by using of three types of missiles - all SAM (surface-to-air missiles) in it - solid fuel, two-stage, hypersonic, maximally unified with each other", he said.

    The company spokesman said that the S-300V4 system will be able to use the 9M83M small missile, the large 9M82MD and intermediate 9M82M missile with the range of up to 200 km. According to him, the 9M82MD missile is designed to intercept aerodynamic targets within the range of 400 km, as well as the main types of ballistic targets, including the warheads of medium-range ballistic missiles flying at a speed of up to 4,500 meters per second

    For the destruction of ballistic missile warheads, the air defense system missiles are for the first time equipped with a directional warhead with "light" and "heavy" strike elements, said the expert. The effectiveness of such a warhead is "more than five-fold or six-fold" higher than the "classic" one, the representative of Almaz-Antey said.

    The contract on the supply of the S-300V4 system was signed with the Russian Defense Ministry in 2012, and the first set off the system was made operational in late 2014. In May, Almaz-Antey General Designer Pavel Sozinov said in an interview with TASS that a new long-range missile, which allows the system to destroy targets at a distance of 400 kilometers, was made operational.
