    That's good but 300km away your ground radar can see only planes flying 15-20km in altitude. You need a very good IADS to really use such systems.

    Very true but with airborne radar like the Ka-31 a Rusian frigate with Shtil-1 can hit sea skimming missiles at max missile range... on land a BUK battery with other platforms using radar can hit targets behind a line of hills or even mountains...

    Military operation in Ukraine
    Russian Defense Ministry: Buk-M3s regularly shoot down American HIMARS missiles during a special operation

    MOSCOW, 28 September. /TASS/. Crews of Buk-M3 anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) during a special operation hit any aircraft, including missiles fired by American HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS). This was reported in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on Wednesday.
    "The crews of the anti-aircraft missile brigade, armed with the latest Buk-M3 systems, regularly shoot down shells from the HIMARS multiple launch rocket system. During combat duty, air defense crews detect, escort and destroy various aircraft around the clock, providing reliable air cover for the positions of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, as well as the most important administrative and industrial facilities.

    On Wednesday, the Russian Defense Ministry showed footage of the combat work of the Buk-M3 crews of the air defense units of the Central Military District (TsVO) in the special operation zone. The air defense system is equipped with improved electronics and new anti-aircraft missiles, the number of which has increased to six.
    "[During work it is necessary] constant attention, in no case to relax, to watch the indicators, and then everything will be successful. It all depends on the target's movement parameter and on where the target is. The complex itself sees far enough, and if the target is in the zone, then it is literally to take on escort, report, identify and launch. About two or three seconds - the missile left, "said the battery commander with the call sign "Brodyaga" in the released video.

    M142 HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) is a highly mobile MLRS developed by the American company Lockheed Martin. More than 20 types of ammunition have been created for installation, the firing range of which, depending on the type, can range from 30-80 (in the MLRS mode) to 300 km or more (as an operational-tactical missile system).
