    How do they detect the sub that far out? Can active sonar reach 50 km?

    Unlikely that you can detect a sub that far. But you can use light naval and airborne drones for detection and use weapons from your ship at safe distance.

    Helicopters, Sea Bed sonar arrays... even just smaller boats with dipping sonar arrays or subs with towed arrays all detecting targets but not wanting or able to attack the target directly themselves (either because they are not carrying suitable weapons or perhaps are not wanting to give away their own position)... could transmit target data to a platform further away to engage the target...

    So this is like the 'Pantsir-convergence/synthesis' where defensive weapons can launch offensive weapons.

    Being command guided, the Ataka would be a useful anti helicopter and anti drone missile as DIRCMS and flares wont stop it...

    I would be interesting to see what missile types could be used... 10km range Kornet EM missiles as well as the Ataka family (Shturm and Khrisantema) as well as perhaps Pine/Sosna and of course MANPADS like Igla and Verba...

    Could be quite a flexible system...
