    Really encouraging news thumbsup . Just cant stop myself from giving a thumbs up. thumbsup

    Just imagine the difference between 1990-98 era and today. Cant imagine the emotions of the general saying words like ..

    "The industry is reaching its full capacity, so this year we will receive six S-400, and next year, we won't slow down the pace as well," Bondarev said.

    These words it self show just how much Russian industry has progressed. Russian political class(kremlin) is very careful not to engage in a direct conflict with the west/financial collapse otherwise this seemingly unprecedented industrialization would come down

    Article is paid perhaps. Here's the excerpt. :-

    For the non-U.S. nations buying the Joint Strike Fighter, Lockheed Martin’s F-35 will be their first experience operating stealth aircraft. Since development of the aircraft began 15 years ago, radar technology has advanced and debate over the value of stealth has escalated. But several nations have now selected the F-35 in open competitions, citing in part the combat capability enabled by low observability. As the F-35 debuts at air shows outside the U.S., Aviation Week reexamines the fundamentals of stealth and whether it provides an advantage over the latest adversary radars.

    Stealth Basics

    Stealth is the science of reducing an object’s detectability to radar. The goal is to minimize the electromagnetic energy reflected back to a radar so it cannot distinguish the return from the signals created by environmental clutter and noise of its internal electronics.

    The metric of detectability is called radar cross-section (RCS), which normalizes the reflectivity of targets by comparing them to metal spheres. Human beings have an RCS of about 1 m2— they return as much radar energy as a sphere with a geometric cross-section of 1 m2. Since RCSs vary by orders of magnitude, it also is common to use the logarithmic unit “decibel square meters” (dBsm), in which 100 m2 converts to 20 dBsm and 0.1 m2 to -10 dBsm.

    RCS varies with the angle and frequency of the radar signal. The sector of greatest interest is ±45 deg. in azimuth and ±15 deg. in elevation, and the frequency band of greatest concern is X-band (8-12 GHz), where most fire-control radars operate. “All-aspect stealth”—minimizing detectability from any angle—and “broadband stealth”—reducing observability over a broader frequency range—can be achieved with greater cost or engineering tradeoffs.

    Stealth technology reduces RCS by shaping an aircraft to “scatter” radar waves away from the emitter and using radar-absorbent material (RAM) to reduce reflections by turning the energy into heat. Traditionally, shaping accounts for 90% of stealth’s RCS reduction and materials 10%.

    New S-300PS regiment went on combat duty in Abakan. Have heard it will be called the 170th.

    "The anti-aircraft missile systems S-300PS today (Friday) at 10.00 local time (06.00 MSK) atonement for combat duty in the Republic of Khakassia", - told Shchemelev.

    According to the source, the calculations Abakan anti-aircraft missile compound successfully completed the training course for new weapons, carried out a program of training and combat shooting on Ashuluk range in the Astrakhan region in late March. "To accommodate the new S-300 systems were equipped with the appropriate positions," - said the representative of the military.

    He said that the anti-aircraft missile compound was formed on the territory of Abakan December 1, 2015. "The main objective of anti-aircraft gunners - cover important objects in the zone of responsibility", - said Shchemelev.

    S-300PS - anti-aircraft missile system of medium-range, designed to destroy air targets at ranges up to 300 kilometers, flying at speeds up to 1.2 thousand meters per second. The complex is able to simultaneously fire six goals, suggesting every two missiles.

    Did you found it already? History is of no help - as far as I know there never was a S-200/300 RGT in that district...

    There was a SA-2 base at 52544415 N 91203478 E but I can't get a modern satellite image. Sayanogorsk HPP would be the most strategic target, so would suspect it would have to be within 300PS range of that.

    At your coordinates there is nothing. The SA-2 site was here 52.913166° 91.335396°. The latest Sat Pic which I saw from this site is of March 2016...nothing. Well wait and see...

    This is probably the first (moderest) sight of S-500 elements on an image of Kapustin Yar.
    First I thought it would be just another 5T58-2 missile transporter. But the gap between the truck cabin and the missile containers is much closer.
    I think this could be indeed 77P6 launcher vehicles. In my opinion the variant with the shorter missile container for the 40N6M. The variant with the even longer 77N6N canister would show an even smaller gap to the BAZ truck cabin.
    Well...time will tell

    what ever happened to the Ultra Short range missile under development that was similar to Iron Dome in concept , suddenly there is no news there ?

    Read last year there were development problems. What I don't know.

    You mean Morfei? 9M100?

    Well I remember in the late 1980s the Mi28 was revealed at foreign airshows, but the Ka-50 was kept secret... mainly because the Ka-50 was accepted for service and the Mi-28 was not.

    Silence can mean problems with development or they can mean they are not prepared to export them any time soon so they don't reveal any information about them to the public.

    Anyone have heard of Sunflower radar?
    Russia have the ability to see over the horizon without any external aid ,like patrol aircrafts
    or boats. The radar will detect not only planes beyond the horizon line of sight.. about ~50km.
    but also all the way to 450km ,by sending a signal that follows the curvature of the water surface.

    This is truly a major development in radar technology , when radars can up to 300 boats and planes movements. up to 450km away and without any deployment of airforce or navy to extend the radar view. This means Russia right now have complete full monitoring capabilities of anything that happens in Baltic sea ,caspian sea or black sea in the water or above it, up to 450km distance from the radar. really interested stuff. and if all that was not good enough
    to deter mass waves of surprise attacks ,flying low. Sunflower radars can also see F-35.

    apparently the Sunflower radar is already operating in Sea of Okhotsk, the Sea of Japan and the Caspian Sea.

    http://sputniknews.com/military/20160710/1042734198/f35-engine-radar.html


    Wondering if NATO also developed and in service over the horizon surface wave radars.
    This technology can also significantly save a lot of money in patrols , since the radars will keep
    updated Russia with every movement in the water and over it up to 450km away.

    Yes Sunflower is younger brother of Container OTH radar
