    People still insist on adding the 'E' for weapons for domestic use. Wink

    This is odd... we know the TEL can carry 12 9M96 size missiles but this suggests only 32 9M100 missiles can be carried.

    The previously revealed numbers were 12 9m96 tubes but that the 9m100 was much smaller and for each tube you could fit four 9M100 missiles in each tube for the larger missiles, which means 12 x 4 = 48 missiles.

    It seems that the new 9M100 missiles are bigger and don't fit four to a 9M96 tube and perhaps has 8 times quad missile tubes mounted on the truck instead.

    I wonder if the domestic 9M100 is smaller and lighter and uses IIR seeking, while the export model 9M100e is larger and ARH...

    Or they just changed the design.

    The thing is that this has serious ramifications for the naval redut system... the 12 tube 9M96 launcher has fixed launch hatches so the 9M100 has to fit into the space left by the 9M96 missiles in quads...

    The first regimental set of the new S-350 Vityaz anti-aircraft missile system will enter service with the Russian army this year. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.

    S-350 "Vityaz" SAM System - Page 18 Empty In the training center of the Anti-aircraft Missile Forces of the Military Academy of Aerospace Defense

    In the training center of the Anti-aircraft Missile Forces of the Military Academy of Aerospace Defense named after G. K. Zhukov, work was carried out on the development of the S-350 Vityaz anti-aircraft missile system by the teaching staff and the preparation of the educational and material base for the training of military specialists.

    The first set of the latest S-350 air defense system was delivered to the training center in early 2020, where the personnel of the units that will undergo planned rearmament will be retrained.

    The capabilities of the S-350 system make it possible to effectively deal with all types of air targets, and first of all with cruise missiles.

    The main features of the system are: all-angle shooting and increased fire performance (due to the use of anti-aircraft guided missiles with an active homing head); increased ammunition of anti-aircraft guided missiles (4 times more than in the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system); increased survivability (due to the use of 2-3 multifunctional radars in the division).

    In 2021, the Aerospace Forces are planning to enter service with two regimental sets of the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system and 18 ZRPK Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile gun systems.

    In addition, it is planned to re-equip the first anti-aircraft missile regiment with the latest S-350 Vityaz anti-aircraft missile system.

    For reference: The S-350 Vityaz is the latest mobile, multi-channel medium-range anti-aircraft missile system developed by the Almaz-Antey Concern of the East Kazakhstan Region for the anti-aircraft missile forces of the Russian Aerospace Forces. The system is designed to protect the most important state, administrative, industrial, military facilities and groups of troops from the attacks of modern and promising means of air attack of a likely enemy.

    The commander of the air defense forces spoke about the S-350 and the Container radar station

    For the people who thought S-350 Vityaz was solely for cruise missiles.
    It destroys all targets imitating the air enemy - anti-radar, ballistic and cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, jammers, guided bombs-with minimal rocket consumption. And the presence of an increased ammunition load of new-generation anti-aircraft guided missiles can significantly increase fire performance. Delivery of the s-350 Vityaz to military units of the aerospace forces and navy is provided for in the state armament Program. - Lieutenant General Yuri Grekhov
