I have been following the air defence weapon systems being developed and deployed currently in the russian armed forces especially the S 400 for a while. India, where I belong, is about to aquire S 400 from Russia since it planned to firewall its skies by adding up these finest machines along with the systems it develops indegenously. Recently I came across a write up in a western blog claiming that the US and NATO have develped the means to jam and nuetraise the S 400 air defence systems comprehensively. Can S 400 and 500 be jammed and nuetralized? Are these machines are jam proof? Please help me to clear this doubt. thank you admins.
The answer to that question nobody can know for sure , not even NATO unless they test
it for real in an S-400 in a war. But even if they could Jam S-400 or S-500 or S-600 that doesn't exist yet. It doesn't mean it will be easy for them either. Because Patriots defenses and Aegis
launched missiles and tomahawks can be jammed too. this latest ones even more easily since are missiles from the 80s. Russia can also Jam GPS satellites , and contrary to NATO Russia have proof /evidence of jamming state of the art Best NATO military hardware.
The jammed Stealth drone of Boeing , one of the very best technology Americans had ,
was easily captured by IRAN [u] using soviet era jamming systems [/b] that Russia provided to them , this is according to Kret corporation ,that is ,the company who makes the electronic warfare for Russia.
So any technology ,any missile or air defenses ,that Americans deploy to avoid Russia
jamming will have to be superior than anything they have today in service ,at least.
Kret is working in jamming space satellites too , according to their website , So in the worse
case for Russia ,if NATO claims are true (which can only be possible if they tested it for real in a real war against S-400) ,Then None missile ,or air defenses or cruise missile ,neither american ,neither Russian will hit anything across long distances because will be jammed. So both NATO and Russia will be forced to fight the old way like world war 2 with plain artillery and tanks , if both nations counter electronics are very effective if jamming long range weapons.
This is why i believe the real deal in any high tech modern war should be focused in
Combat stealth planes like Pak-fA or perhaps develop stealth versions of Su-25 for close air visual ground attack, that reduce significantly the range they detected on radars .that can be resistance to jam, very powerful long range artillery and modern Tanks. Ballistic missiles like Iskander can also be a pain if not impossible to jam ,because they operate most time away of enemy radar jamming range ,go to high altitude beyond jamming environments and can fly above enemy target and do a 90 degree turn on its target. So by the time the missile enters in an heavily electronic warfare zone ,it will not matter, the warhead will hit the place more or less it intended because will have autonomous guidance by optics and will not depend a lot of updated its fly path on its final phase. Bullets from pantsirs gatling gun defense also fire cannot be jammed. So if S-400 is jammed ,airforce and pantsirs will still be available.
This is a reason i really think Russia should consider seriously develop mobile rail guns for army
and on coastal warships backing it , that fire kinetic projectiles at hypersonic speeds from upto 100km distance or more. You cannot jam kinetic projectiles that are not guided by radio its flight path.
