    No S-400 still use only 48N6DM missile with TVM guide.

    That would still work...

    The RCS values mentioned in the article for the F-35 (1-1,5 m2 at least from side aspect) would be wildly disputed by US sources... but then they announce in depth tests to assess capabilities against ADs so facts don't really support the claims.

    In the end and to save face I think the F-35 will not get involved in the fight and if it does, it will use the same tactics the F-16s are using, that is, low altitude approach using favourable topography and attack from stand off distances from the rim of the SAM engagement zone, even when it means attacking marginal targets instead of more valuable ones. But as far as they are not shot down and attacks continue it will be claimed it is due to Western technological superiority that allows F-35 to challenge the threat posed by the fearsome Russian AD systems. Being limited by decency was never one of their problems...

    And in the end this outcome can be the best, the meltdown and embarrassment a downed F-35 would provoke in US establishment could be destabilising. US would be forced to show strength and recover prestige in one way or another with dangerous consequences.

    One F-35 was already damaged by an S-200 system. Which of course has never happened, according to Tel Aviv and Washington. Mad

    This low approach would hamper the range of the ARM or PGM. Plus there will be Pantsir-S systems around the S-300.

    In the end to attack the S-300 systems in Syria would be a massive operation. Very dangerous for the attacker and costly as well. This is one of the values of an air defence system, the enemy has to use a lot of his means to attack it and can´t attack anything else.

    I wish it would involve the natural dependencies between RCS and wavelength. So far there are kinda few literature exploring this. When there is one tho it never really have some empirical or at least statistical method or equations to help calculate ;w;.

    Russian Legislator Boasts 'S-700' Air Defense Could 'Shut Down' the Planet

    Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a Russian MP who has lead the nationalist Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) since the 1990s, has let slip that Russia allegedly had "S-600" and "S-700" air defense systems.

    The earth-shattering "revelation" came when the flamboyant 72-year-old legislator was commenting on the recent delivery of the S-300 missile defense systems to Syria. "S-300 has interested them (the United States)," he said Thursday on a current affairs talk show hosted by journalist Vladimir Soloviev. "They had [previously] paid no attention whatsoever to some S-300. But now they're scared, because Israel, the United States' close ally, is scared — S-300s are nearby. Every jet — not just Israeli — every military jet may be destroyed.""The Americans are scared in general, they are scared that the world's best air defense system is Russia's S-300. And we [also] have S-400, S-500, S-600, and S-700. We can shut down the whole planet, and no plane will [be able to] take off," the MP joked.His statement prompted an explosion of laughter from another guest on the show and applause from the audience. The host played along with Zhirinovsky, cautioning him that he shouldn't give away all secrets so as not to bring up the "dreaded S-1500 system.
    The MP batted back the warning, claiming that the imaginary S-700 will "block everyone at the launch points for good, and this will be the last blow of the Russian counter-air defense system."

    Well it should not be surprise that Russia will not stop at the S-500s.. when is so close to enter service ,and the staff doing not much will be in the drawing board working in at least one more project ,to speed the development .
    Take for example the Hypersonic missile Avangard.. Putin ordered the construction of it.. in 2003?, after Bush withraw from the ABM treaty. and since that week Putin gave the orders to begin work on hypersonic missiles to penetrate NATO defense shield they were planning in Europe. So it took 15 years.. of development from 2003 to 2018.. and still not yet in service but close..  This means ,that is not unthinkable that Russia will be working in at least 2 or 3 more Air/space defense systems for some time a decade ahead of the time , it will be not productive to wait for the S-500 to enter service and then start in a new one.. The weapons Russia military work. are done more than a decade ahead of its planned release date.. So that said ..if Russia wants to be well prepared not only today but also stay ahead in the future.. then they need to continue developing weapons
    to counter weapons don't exist yet , but that Americans could develop in future. So S-600 and S-700 will not be
    surprising they are being in development. Possibly S-600 will cover the entire Space and target ICBM mid range no mater the altitude they fly.. and with up to 2,000 to 4,000 km range. And since the MP Zhirinovsky speak about Blocking enemy targets at launch points ,this suggest Russia is developing energy Weapons in Space.. like an energy Gun..to damage the electronics of combat planes while they are parked on Aircraft carriers or military bases.  Lots of energy weapons is Russia army future.

    Source: long-range 40N6 missile of the S-400 system adopted for service

    According to the agency’s interlocutor, it is planned to purchase over a thousand such missiles as part of the state armament program until 2027.

    The long-range missile 40N6 [40N6E - export version] was put into service, all the necessary documents were signed in September, after which the Ministry of Defense began purchasing these missiles," the agency’s source said.

    New rocket
    40N6 is an anti-aircraft super-long-range guided missile, designed to destroy DRLO and EW aircraft, air command posts, strategic bombers, hypersonic cruise and ballistic missiles. According to official data, the range of destruction - up to 380 km for aerodynamic purposes and up to 15 km for ballistic, height - from 10 m to 35 km. The average flight speed is 1190 m / s. Thanks to the new homing head, it can destroy aircraft outside the radio visibility of ground-based locators.

    Military unit in the Khabarovsk Territory re-armed on the S-400

    The military unit of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Eastern Military District (VVO) in the Khabarovsk Territory completed rearmament with the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system. This was stated by the district press service.

    The last echelon with new equipment arrived in the unit in October, the report says. Anti-aircraft gunners mastered the new weapons at one of the ranges of the western part of Russia, reports TASS on October 17. They studied the characteristics and the material part of the system and performed electronic and practical missile launches

    Long-range anti-aircraft guided missile 40N6 of the S-400 system adopted for service

    As reported on October 18, 2018 by the TASS agency, the long-range anti-aircraft guided missile 40N6 of the S-400 Triumph system was adopted by the Russian army. This was announced on Thursday Tass source in the defense-industrial complex of the Russian Federation.

    "The long-range missile 40N6 [40N6E - export version] was put into service, all the necessary documents were signed in September, after which the Ministry of Defense began purchasing these missiles," the agency’s source said.

    “In total, under the state armament program until 2027, it is planned to purchase over a thousand 40N6 to equip the existing C-400 Aerospace Forces with existing regiments and to re-equip them,” the source added, recalling that within the framework of this program, 56 -400.

    In July, another source in the Russian defense industry told TASS about the successful completion of state joint tests of the 40N6 missile.


    New rocket

    40N6 is an anti-aircraft super-long-range guided missile, designed to destroy DRLO and EW aircraft, air command posts, strategic bombers, hypersonic cruise and ballistic missiles. According to official data, the range of destruction - up to 380 km for aerodynamic purposes and up to 15 km for ballistic, height - from 10 m to 35 km. The average flight speed is 1190 m / s. Thanks to the new homing head, it can destroy aircraft outside the radio visibility of ground-based locators.

    The rocket was developed by ICB Fakel, mass production is carried out by the Moscow Aviation Plant “Avangard”. Its adoption was expected in the early 2010s, but the tests were delayed.

    Anti-aircraft missiles of the S-400 complex (9M96, 48N6, 48N6DM) that were previously in service ensured the destruction of targets at a range of up to 250 km.

    Apparently, the U.S and Isreal are training against the S-300 in Ukraine.
    What S-300 variant does Ukraine have?
