    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...

    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

    Post  franco Mon Feb 22, 2021 1:58 pm

    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

    The supply of the S-350 "Vityaz" anti-aircraft missile system to the combat units of the air defense has begun
    bmpd
    May 13th, 12:12

    As the news agency INTERFAX-AVN reported on May 12, 2021 , the new S-350 Vityaz medium-range anti-aircraft missile system entered service with the Southern Military District. This was announced in an interview with the newspaper " Military Bulletin of the South of Russia" by the commander of the military district Alexander Dvornikov. Self-propelled launchers 50P6A anti-aircraft missile system S-350 "Vityaz" (50R6A) during the Victory Parade in Moscow 05/09/2019 (c) Mikhail Voskresensky / RIA Novosti


    "This year entered service with a promising medium-range anti-aircraft missile system S-350 Vityaz. According to its characteristics, it is designed to combat both aerodynamic and ballistic targets. One of the district's anti-aircraft missile regiments has already begun rearmament with this a new sample, "said Dvornikov.

    The press service of the Southern Military District told Interfax that the S-350 entered service with the regiment in the Krasnodar Territory.

    "Currently, the anti-aircraft missile forces of the Southern Military District are 90% equipped with samples of the new fleet, and radio-technical units - by 76%. The basis of our means of fighting air targets are the S-400 Triumph and Pantsir-S air defense missile systems," he added Dvornikov.

    Dvornikov said in March that long-range anti-aircraft missile systems of the new generation S-500, as well as new medium-range air defense systems S-350, could be deployed in Crimea and other regions of southern Russia.

    S-350 "Vityaz" (concern "Almaz-Antey") - a mobile multi-channel medium-range air defense system. Designed to protect government, industrial, military facilities and groupings of troops from modern and advanced air attack weapons. The system is capable of destroying air targets at ranges over 120 km and at altitudes over 30 km. The time for bringing the complex to combat readiness from the march does not exceed 5 minutes.

    In January, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that the first anti-aircraft missile regiment is planned to be re-equipped with the S-350 in 2021. Previously, the S-350 complex was supplied for training specialists at a training center in the Leningrad Region.



    On the part of bmpd, we recall that the first serial divisional set of the S-350 Vityaz (50R6A) anti-aircraft missile system manufactured by Concern VKO Almaz-Antey was transferred to the Russian Aerospace Forces on December 22, 2019 at the Kapustin Yar training ground in the Astrakhan region, and in February 2020, he entered the training center of the anti-aircraft missile forces of the Military Academy of Aerospace Defense named after Marshal of the Soviet Union G.K. Zhukov in Gatchina (Leningrad Region).

    According to colleague altyn73, now the first combatant anti-aircraft missile regiment of the Russian Aerospace Forces, re-equipped with the S-350 air defense system and received the first set of this system, is the 1721st anti-aircraft missile regiment of the 51st Air Defense Division of the 4th Red Banner Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Southern Military Rouge, stationed in Sochi (Krasnodar Territory) and already armed with rather old Buk-M1 air defense systems (the regiment was reorganized in 2006 from the 102nd separate anti-aircraft missile brigade, transferred to the Air Force and Air Defense from the Ground Forces).

    The S-350 (50R6A) air defense missile system, using 9M96 series anti-aircraft missiles, includes 12-container self-propelled launchers 50P6A, a 50N6A multifunctional radar, a 50K6A command and control station, and a 92N6 multifunctional detection radar (also used in the S-400 air defense system).

    "Knight" in the army's skin: anti-drone anti-aircraft missile systems will go to the troops of the Southern Military District
    The personnel of the first S-350 regiment are already undergoing training in Gatchina

    Highly mobile anti-aircraft systems are preparing to take up combat duty in the Russian army. The first regiment of the S-350 Vityaz air defense system is already completing its training, sources in the Ministry of Defense told Izvestia. The personnel of the unit are now at the training center in Gatchina near St. Petersburg, but at the beginning of winter they will go to their permanent duty station. Vityaz are one of the most modern and dangerous anti-aircraft systems in the world. They are capable of intercepting any targets and are particularly mobile: in a matter of hours, a regiment can cover hundreds of kilometers off-road. Military experts note that the appearance of the S-350 will seriously strengthen Russia's southern borders.

    Next month, the soldiers and officers of the regiment will conduct exercises, after which they will face firing ranges from the S-350 Vityaz anti-aircraft missile systems. Already at the very beginning of winter, they will receive the first serial set and go to the permanent deployment area, the sources of Izvestia in the military department specified. According to them, the first regiment with S-350 will be deployed in the Southern Military District - there is no more specific information about its deployment.

    The Gatchina training center itself received the S-350 system on the eve of the new 2020 year. It is on it that specialists master new equipment, who then have to serve in combat units.

    Earlier, the head of the Zhukov Military Academy of Aerospace Defense, Lieutenant General Vladimir Lyaporov, reported that from 2021 to 2027, five anti-aircraft missile regiments will receive 12 S-350 divisions. According to him, the emergence of new systems will increase the effectiveness of the fight against cruise missiles by 2-2.5 times.

    "Vityaz" will occupy an important place in the deeply echeloned air defense system of the country, said the former deputy chief of the Air Force for the united air defense system of the CIS countries, Lieutenant General of the Reserve Aytech Bizhev.

    “The S-300 or S-400 systems are needed to destroy important targets at a great distance,” the expert explained to Izvestia. - They, for example, can meet strategic bombers with fire. These weapons will cope with almost any purpose, but they have too expensive and powerful ammunition. The S-350, with its more compact and less expensive missiles, will do well at medium ranges. It effectively destroys small targets - including cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles at medium and low altitudes.

    It is customary in the Russian armed forces to send new equipment and weapons to border military units, said Aytech Bizhev.
    Adoption of the S-350 Vityaz anti-aircraft missile system into the Aerospace Forces

    “First, the air defense must reliably cover the borders, and then the internal regions of the country,” he said. - The situation on our southern border is difficult to call calm, and the new systems will seriously strengthen the air defense in the region.

    Five-minute readiness

    One of the main advantages of the S-350 on a wheeled chassis is its increased mobility compared to tracked vehicles. In addition, the dimensions allow the Vityaz to be transported by military transport aircraft, as well as by rail and water transport. Subdivisions of "Knights" can quickly arrive at a given area and bring weapons to combat readiness in five minutes.

    The characteristics of "three hundred and fifty" will allow you to quickly deploy equipment, shoot and immediately change the location. It will be extremely difficult to find equipment "dissolved" in forests or mountains.

    The S-350 consists of several mobile combat modules: a combat command post, which receives operational information about the air situation, two radars and new self-propelled launchers. Early warning radar is responsible for the search and identification of ballistic and aerodynamic targets. The main task of the radar station is to "capture" the aircraft and unmistakably bring anti-aircraft missiles to it.

    Electronics fully controls the course of hostilities, so the calculation only needs to track the process, making adjustments if necessary.

    Adoption of the S-350 Vityaz anti-aircraft missile system into the Aerospace Forces

    At the same time, launchers, radars and control points can be located kilometers from each other, exchanging information over secure communication channels. Such a system helps integrate the S-350 with units armed with the S-400 and Shells. In addition, it is built on a new element base, which increases its performance in terms of destroying air targets.

    Another plus of the Vityaz is the increased ammunition load. One launcher is capable of carrying 12 anti-aircraft missiles against four on the S-300. This saves time when reloading, which greatly increases the rate of fire of the system. The S-350 division includes 12 launchers, each carrying 12 missiles.

    The Vityaz is armed with several types of missiles, including the 9M96E2 with active homing heads. Radar with an active phased array allows you to detect targets at a distance of up to 250 km and simultaneously track several dozen of them.

    "Vityaz" is intended for the defense of administrative, industrial, infrastructural and military facilities from massive air strikes. The system is capable of operating both autonomously and as part of air defense groupings, aerospace forces and ground forces. In this case, she will be controlled from a single command post.

    The development of the S-350 Vityaz air defense system began in 2007, and in 2013 its prototype was shown for the first time. At the same time, tests began. In the spring of 2019, it was announced that it had successfully passed all stages of inspections and the start of mass production.

    In 2021, the Aerospace Forces plans to adopt two regimental sets of the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system and 18 Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile cannon systems. The premiere of the fundamentally new S-500 Prometheus anti-aircraft missile systems is also expected. In accordance with the previously announced plans of the military department, the creation of this mobile system is scheduled for 2021.

    Buk is supposed to follow the army ground forces that's why it is mounted on a tracked chassi.

    Wheeled truck S-350 can't do that.

    Buk-M3 should replace all the older Buks. They could even upgrade it with 9m96 missiles to unify both system.

    Advantage of buk is also more fire control radar which is a lesson from arab use of SA-6. In that regard S-350 is closer to the SA-6 with 1 central radar and launchers around.

    There were a couple of the PVO Air Defense regiments that were equipped with Buk's instead of S300 including the one about to be changed now. The other was changed a couple of years ago to S300P.

    That reminds me, when will the 42S6 Morfey be ready? Haven't heard any news about it in a while.

    The 9M100 is part of the S-350 system as far as I am aware and is mentioned as being a 15km range and is part of the system... a smaller cheaper missile that can be used for point defence.

    The naval version that is part of the Redut system is also being deployed AFAIK and an aircraft carried version is also being used... its two way datalink and IIR seeker means it can be locked on to the target in flight with the operator able to select the target or reselect if a bigger threat is detected... ie at 10km range an enemy aircraft is detected... you launch this missile but as it approaches it detects the enemy aircraft has launched a missile which it could then acquire and engage instead.

    There has been information about an ARH version which might be an option for ships and also aircraft and ground based use in conditions not suitable for IIR like rain or fog, but I would expect the new generation IIR seekers as used on the anti ground target LMUR will get cheaper with time and become affordable for mass production.

    Ironically I always thought the 9M96 missiles in the 60km range and 150km range versions would be ideal for aircraft use as they are long and slim with not a lot of bits sticking out, that are ARH with datalinks to the launch platform... launched from a helicopter like a Ka-52M their range would not change a lot except if launched from 3-4km altitude, but launched from higher altitudes and higher forward speeds from fighters and bombers would make them rather potent AAMs. and they are already developed and pretty much ready to go.

    Its always been a 12-round TEL.
    I think it was stated previously that S-350 would be deployed to Crimea.

    Apparently started work on S-550 Shocked
    http://bastion-karpenko.ru/s-550-zrs/
    In Russia, work is underway to create a new S-550 anti-aircraft missile system, said Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. ... Shoigu did not provide any information about the newest system.

    The new S-550 air defense system is likely to replace the air defense systems in service with the Russian army, including the S-350 Vityaz and the S-400 Triumph, well-known military expert Alexei Leonkov told RIA Novosti on Wednesday ... “According to available information, we are talking about a modification that will replace all previous air defense systems up to the S-400. Let's take the same S-350 complex - it was created to replace the S-300PS - a medium-range air defense system, one launcher of which could launch four missiles, and the S-350 - already 12. I think that the S-550 will follow the same path “It will be an improved version of the S-400 with a large number of missiles, with a greater possibility of firing at air targets,” Leonkov said. The expert suggested that it was decided to call the new system the S-550, and not the S-450, because it will use, among other things, the technologies that are being introduced for the first time on the S-500 Prometheus, and the five hundred will remain the most developed and a modern system from the entire line of domestic air defense-missile defense.
