Polish media: C-400 will not be able to hit our planes due to the curvature of the Earth

Polish "scientists" once again confirmed that they have not only caught up, but also surpassed, according to the level of "competence", their British colleagues. For example, recently the Warsaw Institute сообщилthat came to the conclusion, having studied the Thunder-2019 exercises, that Russia is not ready for a nuclear clash with the United States. And now, the "experts" of the Polish daily newspaperpolitical Gazeta Wyborcza (Agora SA media holding) criticizes the Russian S-400 Triumph long-range and medium-range anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) and praise the American MIM-104 Patriot anti-missile systems (Patriot), adopted by Poland in every way )

The Poles say that the S-400 air defense system does not meet the declared characteristics. They question the ability of S-400 air defense systems located in the Kaliningrad Region to hit targets in Poland’s airspace, and the claimed range of the complex (400 km) is called the manufacturer’s promotion. The Russians allegedly lure buyers by intimidating potential opponents.

In confirmation, the Polish "experts" began to demonstrate their "knowledge." They wrote that the range of target detection by the S-400 radar is due to the terrain and curvature of the Earth. At the same time, clarifying that the S-400 radar, so that it can detect a target in accordance with the claimed characteristics, must be at a height of several kilometers above the surface of the Earth. Masts available at the indicated air defense missile system can raise the radar to a height of more than 25 meters, which indicates that the complex is not able to "see" the declared distance.

The Poles are sure that only trans-horizon radars using the phenomenon of reflection of radio waves from the ionosphere can “see” targets at such a distance. Moreover, the available radars of this type in Russia are too bulky and do not differ in high accuracy of target detection. Moreover, Russian equipment is based on its own electronic base, which is significantly behind the American one. Therefore, the S-400 can not hit targets with the same accuracy as the MIM-104 Patriot.

The only Russian weapon that, according to the Poles, can cause them trouble is the Iskander-M OTRK located in the Kaliningrad Region. But in this case, the Poles are convinced that the Russians deliberately underestimated the range of their missiles, capable of hitting any target in Poland.

    Again, Polish clowns frolic - dreaming. The dream is beautiful - still unclear. laughing

    Well, since over-the-horizon radars are too complicated a phrase for Polish experts, it’s not worth complicating everything, even if they consider the land flat and standing on the backs of three elephants. sad

    Do not teach, these scientists, they would have good brains, it would be good, only such brains are a shortage for the Polish gentry.
  4. Don't worry about us, “brothers” Poles, everyone knows that the earth is flat, it stands on three turtles that swim in the sea. So everything will be okay! Let's blow your airplanes into smoke!

    Another pearl. Maybe they also forgot that the S-400 is still designed for air targets? And the majority of the fact that the S-400 should hit, still flies quite high, these Poles, apparently, did not take into account. A tank in the trench at a distance of 400 km, most likely, she still will not see, but a flying rocket or plane is quite a thing ...

    Well, let the land in Poland be "crooked"! In response to this, anti-aircraft guns with a curved barrel can be made! tongue

    Before 1941, many Russians also shouted - our Russian army is the most and the most, and we will beat the enemy on its territory ...
    But they retreated to Moscow ... then the Siberian divisions came to the rescue.

    And now, too, so mumbled - they say, we are so-and-so, so clear, etc. etc...
    But the Buryats and Yakuts were the first to go to Donbass ... there were no Russians there at all.

    Just as now I remember the Buryat cavalry and a platoon of Buryat divers).

    The radar, included in the basic configuration of the S-400, is able to detect a target at a distance of 400 kilometers only if it moves at an altitude exceeding 10 kilometers. Those objects that are below will be hiding behind the so-called radar horizon. The waves of a simple radar cannot (with the exception of certain specific situations) “peep” beyond the bend of the earth.
    There are special masts with which radar antennas are located at a height of 25 meters. This, however, does not significantly change the situation with the detection of targets at large distances.

    Polish Russophobes have straight convolutions and therefore they cannot understand the "horizon". These are the ones that give rise to the theory, such as "flat earth" and "space does not exist", well, and any "scientific" dregs. Along with the "English scientists", now there are also "Polish scientists".

    With whom you will lead, from that you will gain.
