    I wouldn't worry about Morfei. It's role is sound and should be fulfilled. Sometime missile development just lasts years longer than initially thought. Case in point - long range S400 missiles which lagged years after initial S400 was deployed.

    Ooh god, not this BS argument again, "so you can see our uber-stealth fighters, but you can't target us, because reasons", this pathetic excuse isn't exclusive to Mr.Axe here, it has become quiet common, it came from Military and Defense industry officials desperately trying to save there a$$.

    Russia to deploy an S-400 regiment to Crimea

    Post  Benya on Fri Jul 15, 2016 12:02 pm

    Russia's Defense Ministry will deploy a regiment of S-400 air defense systems in Crimea by the end of the summer, Lt. Col. Evgeniy Oleynikov said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to Oleynikov, the latest Triumf air defense systems will be deployed in August.

    "In August 2016, a shipment of received technology [S-400] is set to be unloaded at the place of permanent deployment…in Feodosia," Oleynikov said.

    http://sputniknews.com/military/20160715/1043017888/russian-mod-deploy-s400-crimea.html

    If someone dind't knew that before, an S-400 regiment consists of:

    -2 divisions (battalions) of 12 launchers each (each division is further divided into 3 batteries (companies) of 4 launchers).
    -each division has its own radar sets (91N6E target aquisition and battle management radar, 92N6E engagement and fire control radar)  and command posts. The command posts can control up to 12 launchers each. (a divisional set).

    Note that there can also be a regiment level command post, or a bit unlikely, individual battery level command posts. Additional short range SAM systems like the 96K2 "Pantsir-S1" can be also attached to the regiment protecting the unit itself.

    Is there any reason to believe actual thing will look different from those models we saw months ago? Will we see the complete system, with radar(s), transloaders, command vehicle?

    That's great news - I can hardly wait to see pictures. Wish I would be there.

    Well regarding the trucks we will see. But as for example the S-400 saw many type of trucks. Not only the 5P85T2 and 5P85S2. The other ones never materialized like 51P6A on MZKT-7930 or 5P90S on Baz 6909-022.

    The old images you mentioned show BaZ trucks too. But who knows...maybe they come up with some MZKT variants.
    I wonder whether they present already both type of missles...

    Holy Crap...MEGA DEVELOPMENT...should bring tears to the eyes of Viktor, sepheronx, and kvs...lol1

    The new chip will double the rate of Russian air defense systems

    The Russian finished testing the 16-bit microcontroller for control of air defense systems (air defense). The new chip will double the speed of information processing anti-aircraft missile and radar systems, reported the press service of "instrument-United Corporation."

    The task of the microcontroller - to handle real-time incoming data and give their team based on the individual units of the combat system, ensuring a smooth and rapid functioning of the entire complex.

    Memory of a new microcontroller (product 1867VTS10T) increased four times - up to 2.5 kilobytes. Compared to its predecessors, and foreign counterparts greatly increased storage capacity (up to 64 KB) and its clock frequency. It is 120 MHz, whereas the performance of similar products does not exceed 40 MHz. Moreover, its dimensions will be smaller than the previous generation devices. Start of series production is planned for late 2016.

    - The microcontroller designed by specialists of the concern "Constellation" and the Research Institute of Electronic Technology (NIIET), - said deputy general director of "instrument-United Corporation" Andrei Chendarov. - The scheme gives developers opportunities for the realization of the desired performance characteristics of air defense systems, providing high speed processing and transmission of information.

    S400 arrives on duty in the Crimea

    SEVASTOPOL, July 30 -. RIA Novosti Russian military grouping in the Crimea is armed with the latest air defense systems, missile defense system S-400, told RIA Novosti on Saturday in Sevastopol source in the power structures of the Crimea.

    "Russian military group in the Crimea is armed with the latest air-defense missile systems S-400", - he said.

    Opens today in Sevastopol service center of concern "Almaz-Antey" will repair and maintain all service are in service in the Crimea, air defense systems, including the latest S-400, a spokesman said.

    Earlier in the Russian Defense Ministry said that in August, will transfer to the Crimea regiment advanced missile systems S-400 "Triumph".



    NOTES: Old Ukrainian S.300PS to be put into storage from another article. From satellite photos, the second regiment stationed around Sevastopol appears to be S.300PMU's.

    WOW!!!

    New milestone in the development of air defense systems! lol1 affraid lol!

    BTW it is good for its intended role, since I think that we all know the fact that calculating an aerial target's flight path (altitude, speed, direction of flight etc.) and displaying it on a pretty basic CRT( the S-400 surely uses digital ones) screen, does not require that much of computing capacity. thumbsup

    Good news to hear! Did they mentioned the exact location of the regiment?

    As for the Crimean deployment of the system, back in 2014, the 31st Division of Air Defense (31 D PVO) was formed to provide air defense for the peninsula, and the troops stationed there. Two missile regiments were formed under the command of the division, the 12th, and the 18th SAM regiments and one radar regiment (the 3rd). One of them, the 18th, is already equipped with 4 battery sets (16 launchers) of S-400 systems. Maybe this all Crimean deployment thing is to fully equip the 18th regiment with S-400s, or to completely reequip the other regiment (the 12th), which already uses S-300s.

    Interesting article about the S-400 system's Crimean deployment, and how it will effect the region's strategic balance

    Analysis : S-400 missile systems to boost Russian air defense in Crimea

    The fielding of air defense units stationed in Crimea with S-400 Triumph (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems shall heavily strengthen the Russian air defenses in the region, according to the Gazeta.ru online news agency.


    Russian S-400 TEL Transporter Erector Launcher

    The S-400 Triumph is designed to defend against electronic warfare, early warning and control and reconnaissance aircraft, including those being part of reconnaissance/strike complexes, strategic bombers carrying antiradiation, cruise, tactical, operational and medium-range ballistic missiles and other air threats in electronic countermeasures-heavy environment. The SAM system engages threats travelling at a speed of 4.8 m/s at a range of 400 km and altitude of 30 km.

    The current procedure for receiving advanced air defense (AD) materiel is roughly as follows. A regiment receives its latest materiel at the Kapustin Yar Missile Range and then test-fires it (otherwise, its SAM systems may not be cleared for alert duty). Then, the systems assume the travelling configuration, displace to a railhead and proceed by rail to their unit, escorted by armed guards. The personnel are given conversion training at the operational conversion unit in the town of Gatchina prior to receiving their missile systems.

    This also applies to the 18th Guards Air Defense Missile Regiment of Sevastopol and Feodosiya, which is part of the 31st AD Division. It is receiving at Kapustin Yar the so-called regimental set of S-400s, i.e. the system command post (also known as control equipment comprising the 55K6E command post and 91N6E radar) and two SAM systems, each comprised of a 92N6E multifunction radar and 12 5P85SE2/5P85TE2 self-propelled launchers, each mounting four 48N6E3/48N6E2 missiles.

    The fielding of air defense units stationed in Crimea with S-400 Triumph (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems shall heavily strengthen the Russian air defenses in the region, according to the Gazeta.ru online news agency.



    48N6E3 missile

    The exact number of the launchers the Feodosiya-based unit is receiving as part of its regimental set is unknown.

    In addition, the regiment is to receive relevant SAMs (the hardware and software of the 98Zh6E SAM system allows firing the 48N6E3 and 48N6E2 missiles and the 48N6E as well). It is possible that the regiment has 40N6 missiles as well.

    The 48N6E3 and 48N6E2, which range is 250 km and 200 km respectively, share a common layout, a semiactive homing head able to handle targets with a speed of 4,800 m/s and 2,800 m/s respectively, and an upgraded adaptive warhead tailored to enhance their effectiveness against ballistic targets.

    In addition, the 18th AD Regiment is to receive the 30Ts6E maintenance equipment set as part of the S-400 package. All of the Triumph’s components are mounted on self-propelled high-mobility wheeled chasses and furnished with integral power supply, positioning, geolocation, communications and utility systems. The system’s components may be plugged to external power supply units to operate in uninterrupted manner for a long time.

    There are reasons to believe that the air defenses of Crimea will gain a drastically advanced capability after the S-400s have set up shop there.

    As is known, an air defense system consists of a system of SAM and fighter jet coverage and a system of radar surveillance.

    The fielding of air defense units stationed in Crimea with S-400 Triumph (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems shall heavily strengthen the Russian air defenses in the region, according to the Gazeta.ru online news agency.


    Russian SA-2 Guideline Ground-to-air missile system

    Let us see again what Crimea’s air defenses have looked like until recently. The air defense forces stationed in Crimea before 1991 had been strong enough. In particular, the peninsula accommodated the 1st AD Division in Sevastopol, which comprised the 174th AD Missile Brigade (city of Sevastopol, Senezh-M automatic control system) made up of battalions operating the S-75 (SA-2 Guideline), S-125 (SA-3 Goa) and S-200 (SA-5 Gammon) SAM systems (later the S-200 and S-300 (SA-10 Grumble) ones); 206th AD Missile Brigade (Yevpatoria, Senezh-M automatic control system), S-75, S-125 and S-200 SAM battalions; 1014th SAM regiment (Feodosiya, Baikal-1 automatic control system), S-75 and S-200 SAM battalions (later the S-200 and S-300 battalions); 62nd Fighter Regiment (Belbek AFB, Rubezh-1M automatic control system) on Sukhoi Su-27 (Flanker) fighters; 16th Radar Brigade (Sevastopol) comprising radar battalions in Belbek, Ai-Petri, Yevpatoria and Kerch, and separate radar companies stationed at Cape Fiolent, in Alushta, Opolznevoye, Cape Tarkhankut, Jankoi, Gvardeiskoye, Razdolnoye, Cape Meganom, Feodosiya and Kazantip.

    These days, there is the Russian Aerospace Force’s 31st AD Division stationed in Crimea. It comprises the 12th AD Missile Regiment in Sevastopol (CP and two S-300PM battalions) and 18th AD Missile Regiment in Feodosiya, the latter receiving the cutting-edge materiel. The radar surveillance system in Crimea is represented by the 3rd Radar Regiment in Sevastopol and Lyubimovka. In addition, a Podsolnukh over-the-horizon radar is stationed in the peninsula. The fighter coverage is provided by the 27th Composite Air Division at Belbek AFB. The division consists of the 37th Composite Air Regiment in Gvardeiskoye, which operates Su-24M (Fencer-C) tactical bombers and Su-25 (Frogfoot) attack aircraft, and 38th Fighter Regiment on Su-27s and Su-30SMs (Flanker-C) at Belbek AFB.

    On the face of it, there are far less assets there now than the 1st AD Division used to have. One should keep in mind, however, that the S-300PM and S-400 SAM systems are far more superior to their predecessors as far as lethality and rate of fire are concerned.

    According to Colonel General Vladimir Litvinov, former first deputy commander-in-chief, Air Defense Force, Crimea’s air defenses are quite adequate for contingencies as well. "Crimea’s air defenses can be beefed up quickly at a push. In my opinion, joint command and control of the assorted AD units on the peninsula should be improved [on the basis of automation]," the general stressed.

    Colonel General Igor Maltsev, former chief of the Air Defense Force Main Staff, believes that the refining of the air defenses must proceed from the adversary’s capabilities in the first place.

    "What air threats oppose us in this theater of operations? The Bulgarian and Romanian air forces are no formidable opponents to us. Turkey will hardly ever risk an open conflict with Russia. I presume the S-400s in Crimea are designed to deter the United States from provocations against the Russian Federation in the southwest strategic area," Maltsev said.

    Obviously, the strengthening of Crimea’s air defenses shall continue - as soon as possible to boot. Ordered by the Russian president in February, the snap inspection of the Southern Military District, of which the Crimea Peninsula is part, showed that the military is able to project power into the strategic region quickly, according to the Gazeta.ru online news agency.

    This is a very good article IMO  thumbsup . It is good that they wrote about its role in the region's protection. It also has interesting facts about the air defense units of the Crimean peninsula, and additional technical info about the S-400 system itself. It is good to see that the Crimean peninsula has such a developed air defense "shield (for example, before reading this article, I didn't knew that there is a Podsolnukh radar in Crimea).

    Little old , but good..

    Enemies will not be able to listen in on Russia’s new S-500 system



    Russia’s new S-500 long-range surface-to-air missile system will have new radio communications systems that are unrivaled in terms of quality, data transmission distance and stealth, according to its developers.

    "Currently, the corporation is developing the next, sixth-generation radio communications resources for completing the various types of military technology, including air-to-surface missile systems – those already present in the armed forces and those that will be in the future," said a representative of the Russian defense industry, noting that the future S-500 surface-to-air missile system is one of them.

    The source explained that the radio stations of the previous generation worked on frequencies that had been established earlier, something that increased the possibility of the transmitted information being tracked and intercepted. In future systems it will be impossible for such situations to occur.

    "Currently, the corporation is developing the next, sixth-generation radio communications resources for completing the various types of military technology, including air-to-surface missile systems – those already present in the armed forces and those that will be in the future," said a representative of the Russian defense industry, noting that the future S-500 surface-to-air missile system is one of them.

    The source explained that the radio stations of the previous generation worked on frequencies that had been established earlier, something that increased the possibility of the transmitted information being tracked and intercepted. In future systems it will be impossible for such situations to occur.

    They migrating to SDR - Software Defined Radio.

    It is thereason why I smile allways when someone saying that the AESA radards are hard to detect due to frequency hopping Smile

    The amateurs hunting for frequency hopping AESA radards with RTL-SDR dongles , cost five pounds each ( it work only up to 2.2 GHz without modification, and the modification can push ip the cost to 50 pounds Smile )

    *** The new missile will allow to use the system not only as a means of defense, but also for anti-missile defense

    Park "Patriot" (Moscow region). 9th of September. Interfax-AVN - Concern EKR "Almaz-Antey" prepared for the anti-aircraft missile systems (AAMS), three types of hypersonic missiles, which will enable its use as a means of air and missile defense, told journalists during the forum "Army 2016" spokesman company.

    "The versatility of the S-Z00V4 as a means of missile defense and air defense, based on the criterion of" cost-effectiveness ", is achieved by using in its composition of three types of missiles - small surface-to-air missile (SAM) 9M83M, which is intended primarily for destruction of all types of aerodynamic purposes, and also aeroballistic, tactical ballistic missiles and cruise missiles, a large high-grade SAM 9M82MD that provides intercept and defeat the main types of ballistic targets, including warheads intermediate range ballistic missiles (IRBM), flying at speeds up to 4500 m / s, as well as aerodynamic targets at distances up to 400 kilometers, "intermediate" variant 9M82M missiles with a maximum range of 200 km, "- said a company representative.

    According to him, "all SAM - solid fuel, two-stage, hypersonic, to unify with each other."

    "In order to achieve the required efficiency defeat warheads IRBM and other small targets was first applied warhead (warhead) aimed to undermine two factions submunitions (" light "and" heavy "), which increased its effectiveness in comparison with the classical warhead more than 5-6 times ", - said the representative of the group.

    He recalled that in 2012 was awarded the contract for the supply of air defense missile systems C-300B4 in the Russian Armed Forces. The first set of this system under the agreement between the Group and the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation of the agreement delivered to the customer in December, 2014.
    AAMS C-300B4 is designed on modern element base and is, in fact, the new system, which compared to the previous generation of systems has expanded to two or three times to hide behind from air attack area and increased the range of the border zone hit air targets.

    These and other parameters provide the ability to C-300V4 effectively with all existing and future means of air attack, and in particular, hypersonic aircraft, aircraft airborne survey at a range of up to 400 km, the director of active interference in areas loitering, aircraft strategic and tactical aircraft to borders of the application of airborne weapons and cruise missiles of air, sea and land-based.

    The S-Z00V4 the first time in the world used the combined method of flight control rockets - inertial guidance on most of the path with the possibility of radio correction and semi-active radar homing in the final phase of flight. Such a missile control method allowed to provide guidance Zour without her support station missile guidance and maximum bandwidth for station purposes.

    Seems to be the new TO&E for the S-400 and the S-300PMU. Can't wait until the S-350 starts arriving and see how they are deployed.
