    Not necessity to shot down any missile was present for the entire salvo ,following the northern route toward the Al-Shayrat air base, delivered by the USS Ross -36 BGM-109 Block IV-

    This entire salvo experienced a rare case of collective malfunction of missile's radar altimeters pointing to a progressive gain of altitude that was necessary to stabilize and counteract;  unfornutately this produced the effect of an early what disastrous early close encounter with sea's wakes......a true misfortune.


    History of the unique scientific achievements at the basis of the event of April 2017 in Syria, with suppression of the entire salvo delivered by the USS Ross, causing only the 23 (24 with one malfunction) BGM-109 missile delivered by the USS Porter ,following the southern route, to effectively reach Al Shayrath AB.

    Does all this mean that Russian cruise missiles are useless as well?

    Actually there is very little evidence that any of the Tomahawk missiles were intercepted during the attack on Shayrat airfield.

    Several Russian missiles ,such as the 3M14 family, (but not the X-101/102 where an innovative navigation systems was purposely developed) could be equally vulnerable to a similar foreign-built sophisticated EW system.

    While in facts is true that at today domestic EW developers have gained a sizeable lead in EW related technology over foreign developers ,it cannot be excluded that a similar systems has been developed (or is in development just in those years with parts of 3M14s going over-ocean from the Syrian theatre of operation), difference is only that domestic EW solutions - not only this one but also those aimed to NATO's air/space communication and data sharing networks and airbased ISR and nav/guid systems - proved to be fully efficient directly in the operations against the actual systems, instead of export versions, employed by our dear over-ocean partners.

    Do that is sufficient to render cruise missiles ,theirs or ours, operatively useless ? Obviously not.

    Even discounting the normal dynamic between measure and countermeasure and therefore compressing the time window taken into account up to a specific operational situation where a similar counter-countermeasure would still not be available to one or both sides in conflict, cruise missiles will be have important roles capitalizing at example its range, therefore the capability to circumvent entirely sides too heavily defended to attack from direction less defended or bypass them to attack undefended area, or capability to selectrively change its flight-approach program , at example changing the pact to high altitude in the area where it is expected that enemy EW will operate that will render surely it detectable and engageable at much greater range by part of enemy AD, but will also assure its survival against the enemy EW and ,at worst, wasting some enemy interceptors.

    I can assure you that not anti-matter AD is responsible for the annihilation of the entire other salvo of the USS Porter  Very Happy

    Also in the western military  insider community the numbers circulating on the amount of missiles coming to the Al Shayrath Ab are always the same : 36 and 23 ; never 19-40, 26-33, 35-24, 41-18, 47-22, or any other number but Always 36 and 23 (for those claiming the 36 figure probably it represent a simple mistake in the reporting about what salvo, that of the USS Ross or that of the USS Porter has been entirely neutralized taking into account that total number of 23 hits is easily accountable for in the UAV video shown Russian DoD just after the attack).

    At least 44 of the missiles certainly hit their targets, if not more.

    Here is a picture. 44 strikes counted at least - as you can see the Americans never actually bothered to target the runways.

    Always hilarious to see this image, nothing but yellow circles around....nothing.

    The thermal imaging footage taking from a Russian drone that flew over the airfield shortly after the assault is far more revealing in terms of actual hit counts.

    Oh my......we are still at that ?

    If any, this represent the umpteenth example of why is so easy for western PR operative to sell totally absurd, self-embarrassing bollocks to theirs public opinion providing as basis thin air with a logo beyond Razz

    That photo has been long examined here and elsewhere and is usually used to show how guillible are the typical western people when critical thinking examination of western-perceived source is concerned.

    At post n 455 of "Syrian War: News#17" is the last time i responded to the appearance of this childish-made PR product.

    http://www.russiadefence.net/t7251p450-syrian-war-news-17#222889

    I reproduce here for ease  Wink



     
    Yes, this "better known" image is the perfect example of the immense amount of b........t  that western PR machine is capable to sell to theirs public opinion ,in spite of the fact that any factual and rational element would point to the exact opposite.
    Practically for western operatives is sufficient to trace some yellow circles around elements of old satellite images ,taken even before the attack even happened, and magically a "proof" has been created from thin air ! All of that against the self-evident primary detonations of only 23 missiles (22 on military installations) visible in the live video shown by Federation's MoD and for not different reason that, in spite of the total absurdity of those PR works, the typical western viewer would not even pass the thing under the minimum scrap of critical thinking lens !

    By now naturally anyone execpt the most ignorant people is perfectly aware that the problem is not only of the 10 weapon depots that has been never hit in the US attack to Al Shayrat AB





    but also that ,only to provide some examples, that number of hits at the support complex was 4 (as easily visible in the video of Federation's MoD) not 5  






    that those two burn trace are obviously NOT the result of two TLAM hits but ZERO







    or that for several of the two-bay hardened aircraft shelters, counted as two TLAM hits, in reality only one was hit while the other remained relatively undamaged




    Naturally all of that will change nothing for mindless plants that ,for the last event, come to the point to even believe to the absurdity that the pics shown under theirs eyes of three medium size ,not hardened civil builings, "strangely" just those without any SAM battery purposely placed at theirs defence (to the contrary of the military installations targeted) is the result of 76 TLAM hit !!!   Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Enough said.

    Only 15 km as max range against medium range ballistic missiles. I think s-300VM does better than that against BM.

    5km as min range. So the gap will be covered by Buk or tor or pantsir or smaller s-400 missiles.

    Ballistic missiles tend to come down near vertically, so very few systems that can engage ballistic missiles can do so over a very great range.

    More importantly such ballistic missiles are not just fired at anything... they are generally fired at pretty serious targets... which is where you would station your SAMs...

    I remember reading somewhere the custom designed ABM patriot (PAC-3) has a range of something like 15km against ballistic missiles too, but its performance against pretty much any other target is pathetic.

    If we can trust the drawing (and we did believe in the A235/Nudol/S-500 drawing made in the Almaz calender too :-) ) it looks more like 48N6 than it is a 9M82 derivate....
    That will ease the use of standard equipment and complicate my task to find them :-(
    Do someone knows whether the deployment already started to some Regiments?

    Regiment set of S-400 missile systems delivered to Russian troops ahead of schedule

    Almaz-Antey defense manufacturer has delivered a new regiment set of the most advanced S-400 Triumf air defense missile systems to the troops ahead of schedule

    MOSCOW, August 27. /TASS/. Almaz-Antey defense manufacturer has delivered a new regiment set of the most advanced S-400 Triumf air defense missile systems to the troops ahead of schedule, the company reported on Monday.

    "Almaz-Antey Group has delivered a new regiment set of S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile systems to the Defense Ministry of Russia ahead of schedule. The official ceremony was held at the Kapustin Yar training range in the Astrakhan Region," the company said.

    In compliance with the Defense Ministry’s requirements, the systems were tested by engaging real air targets during their transfer. The delivery/acceptance tests were performed successfully," the company’s press office said.

    Russia’s S-400 Triumf is the latest long-range surface-to-air missile system that went into service in 2007. It is designed to destroy aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, and can also be used against ground installations. The S-400 can engage targets at a distance of 400 km and at an altitude of up to 30 km.

    Turkey and China have acquired S-400 air defense missile systems, aside from Russia, as of today. A contract on the delivery of S-400 systems to India is expected to be signed.

    The construction of the Russian Air Defense base began in the Arctic
    In the Yakut port of Tiksi, the construction of a military town began for employees of the PVO unit of the Northern Fleet.
    In November last year, the admiral said that in 2018 in the fleet will form a new PVO División
    The military town will be built in six months. It will consist of 11 facilities, the press service of the fleet informs

    The unit referred to in the article is a new regiment ZPR, probably with S-300 leftovers from other regiments that have received S-400

    In 2016, a ZPR regiment with S-300 was established in Rogachevo, a unit that, together with this new one in Tiksi, will probably constitute a new PVO division in the Russian Arctic area

    Does all this mean that Russian cruise missiles are useless as well?

    What this shows is that there is no such thing as a perfect weapon that will work forever... any system will be studied by the enemy and tactics examined to look for flaws and problems that could be exploited to defeat the weapon system as a whole.

    What this means is that the Russians did their homework and looked likely at pieces of american cruise missile they have collected over the years from various places like Kosovo and Iraq etc etc and they have created a way to defeat the missile.

    The Americans might be so keen to stop the Syrian government forces entering Idlib because they might have collected pieces of Russian cruise missiles they desperately want to study or get hold of... or perhaps not.

    The point is that the americans will try to do the same to Russian missiles... but the Russians might not just have developed countermeasures to US cruise missiles... they might have changed the design of their cruise missiles so they are not vulnerable to the same sort of attacks... we will see.

    It is just a normal game of measure and countermeasure and counter countermeasure...

    Actually there is very little evidence that any of the Tomahawk missiles were intercepted during the attack on Shayrat airfield.

    That attack was very much like the Turkish shoot down of an Su-24... they didn't anticipate that the west would become ISISs' airforce, and they clearly didn't expect cruise missile attacks from ISIS either... the next time it is clear they learned the lesson.

    If you argue they should have anticipated both situations, well it is a small contingent of Russian forces... how much do you expect they to do about things that could possibly happen when things they need to be able to do are obviously more important...

    Several Russian missiles ,such as the 3M14 family, (but not the X-101/102 where an innovative navigation systems was purposely developed) could be equally vulnerable to a similar foreign-built sophisticated EW system.

    I seem to remember several articles over the years that were comments by Russian firms about new navigation systems that are totally self contained and do not rely on external sources for updates and location fixes... such systems would be vastly less vulnerable to external interference because it is less likely to be fooled as to where it currently is and where it needs to go.

    Third battalion of S-400 air defense systems enters duty in Crimea

    Similar systems went operational in Feodosiya in January 2017 and in Sevastopol in January 2018

    MOSCOW, September 21. /TASS/. A third battalion of air defense systems S-400 Triumf has entered duty in Crimea, the Black Sea Fleet’s spokesman told the media on Friday.

    "Combat crews of the S-400 air defense missile systems organic to the Air Force and Air Defense group of the Southern Military District have entered duty in Yevpatoria," Rulyov said.

    Russia’s formidable S-400 Triumf air defense missile system

    Similar systems went operational in Feodosiya in January 2017 and in Sevastopol in January 2018.

    The air defense system S-400 Triumf is meant for hitting current and future means of air attack including strategic bombers and ballistic and cruise missiles as well as surface targets. The system is capable of intercepting targets as a far away as 600 kilometers and hit them at a distance of 400 kilometers and an altitude of up to 30 kilometers.

    This is a post I have put in the Russia/Syria thread that I thought might have a relevance here especially as it might be the first opportunity to show that it works for real. Given the RuAF increased traffic into Syria over the past few days the system might already be there.

    A little commented on point on this new and developing situation is that there will now be another Russian defence system in Syria under testing in a war situation. The existing directly RuAF controlled S-300/400 systems not really being in that category.

    As it is a member of the S-300/400 family this is a massive opportunity for a system with tremendous export potential to potentially become a proven under duress product with a new page in the sales brochure and an increased price!

    As shown by the Israeli and US pressure to date not to deploy, this is something that the MIC in Washington and especially manufacturers of US SAMs, really, really did not want to happen. If a S-300 missile knocks a F-16 to the latest spec operated by probably the most highly trained AF in the World it will be a sales disaster as well as a massive hit against the confidence of Western militaries. Confirming in the worst possible way the fears already expressed by USAF Generals. I can't see any pilot volunteering to become the first to beat a S-300/400 missile! Plus I can't see the Syrians worrying about where in the range of their S-300 that they actually hit an IAF plane that has attacked them with a standoff device.

    This situation I suspect will add to Israel's own reluctance to lose an aircraft the probable huge pressure from the US not to allow the S-300 to become proven in battle. But this in itself will add to it's reputation just by increasing it's deterrence factor. Almost win, win for Russia.
