    Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS RF) units/bases (Locations, deployments & equipment)

    Post  Benya on Wed Aug 17, 2016 1:18 pm

    I opened this topic for everyone who is interested in the Russian Aerospace Forces' ((VKS RF) Air, Air Defense and Space Forces combined) current deployments and equipment.

    In this topic I will list any Russian airbases, SAM/radar sites, early warning radars both in Russian territory and in foerign countries with their exact locations and their equipment.

    This topic will be also great for the discussion of the VKS' strategic issues, since if we know what exact type of aircraft is deployed at exactly where, we can argue about that would it be logical or not (for example, way back in 2014-2015, brand new Su-35S fighters were deployed to the Russian Far East. What adversaries they would have to face and so on), same with for example the S-400 SAM long-range system (or any other long-range SAM and radar system).

    So, anyone who is interested in this topic, feel free to post your thoughts about it.

    You might find that responses to this topic might be fewer than you might expect due to OPSEC concerns.

    I know that my topics are noth that popular, and I do not strive for popularity for my topics.

    BTW what do you mean by OPSEC concerns? These aren't state secrets nor payware analisys pages. Or you mean that some state intelligence agency or whatever is spying on my topics?

    Your last sentence is exactly what happens. Virtually everything on the Internet is being monitored by somebody.

    I think that you can bet your life savings on this site being regularly visited by dozens of military intelligence cells and attaches. It carries interesting low level information that is hard to get without local eyes.

    I object to that... I admit I don't contribute much to your topics but I find them very interesting and do enjoy reading them.

    I am very interested in Orbats (order of battles) and TOCs and the identification and location of various units.

    Thanks GarryB and franco!

    I really appreciate both of your support towards my topics.

    I know that my topics are noth that popular, and I do not strive for popularity for my topics.

    Well, honestly this was a kinda dumb statement made by me Neutral . Of course, I really appreciate that my topics are being frequently watched by members of the forum, even if posts are not that common. I plan to make similar threads in the Russian Navy and VDV sub-forums. And of course, 3000 or maybe 5000 views to each of my topics would be great milestones.

    Yesterday I have also edited all air defense regiment's TO&E that are using Buk-M1/S-300V AD missile complexes, for all four military district

    Buk-M1 units:

    -Equipment: 2 division/battalion sets of 9K37-M1 "Buk-M1" medium-range SAM systems (12 9A310M1 launchers (TELs) and 6 9A39 transloader-launchers (TELLs), 1 9S18M1 "Kupol-M1" (NATO code: "Snow Drift") target aquisition and engagemet/fire control radar, 1 9S470M1 regiment/brigade level command post)

    S-300V units:

    -Equipment: 2 division/battalion sets of S-300V4 long-range SAM/ABM systems (8 9A82M and 16 9A83 launchers with radars (TELARs), 4 9A84 and 8 9A85 transloader-launchers (TELLs), 4 9S32 (NATO code: "Grill Pan") battery level engagement/fire control radars, 1 9S15M "Obzor-3" (NATO code: "Bill Board") early warning/target aquisition radar, 1 9S19M "Imbir" (NATO code: "High Screen") sector surveillance radar, 1 9S457 regiment level command post)

    I have also corrected the number of TELs in all S-300/S-400 regiments to their real life numbers, plus I have corrected the amounts of 64N6E (for S-300) / 91N6E (for S-400) "Big Bird" target aquisition radars. Previously I thought that every battalion has one, but then I found out that there is only one of them in every regiment.
