Military Watch: Russian S-500 air defense threatens the latest B-21 bomber


Comparison of the dimensions of the B-2 and B-21 bombers


The American media is sounding the alarm: the latest stealth bomber B-21 Raider developed by Northrop Grumman has not yet entered service, and Russia is already ready for mass production system that can destroy it.

The Military Watch publication reports with alarm that the Russian military is conducting final tests of the S-500 anti-aircraft missile system, in which the principle of separately solving the tasks of destroying ballistic and aerodynamic targets is applied.

The editors cite the words of the Director General of the Design Bureau of Special Engineering Vladimir Dolbenkov:

Also, in the interests of the air defense missile defense troops, the company’s specialists created the units of the latest generation Triumfator-M mobile anti-aircraft missile system. Within the framework of this topic, tests were developed and completed for air defense systems: launcher, components of a multifunctional radar and a missile defense system, an equipped chassis for a combat control point, and transport units for a radar early warning system.

Experts of the American publication note that the S-500 is not being developed as a replacement for the S-400 and S-300 systems, which are currently the most powerful long-range air defense systems in Russia, and are designed to destroy the most important targets.

The Americans included promising spacecraft, hypersonic planes, intercontinental ballistic missiles, satellites, invisible bombers, AWACS planes, support planes and hypersonic missiles to such goals.

The authors of the material bitterly state that the S-500 will be integrated into the existing air defense system of the country and will be able to respond to those promising types of weapons that the United States does not yet have: the B-21 stealth bomber, the SR-72 hypersonic space plane and new medium hypersonic missiles. range.

It is expected that this weapon will appear at the Pentagon no earlier than 2030.

    Apparently, the logic in the statements is not the main virtue in the USA ... HOW can the defense system threaten the bomber - a purely offensive weapon !?
    And bulletproof vests do not "threaten" the American M-16 rifle !? A helmet to a falling brick is a mortal threat !?

      HOW A DEFENSE SYSTEM CAN THREAT A BOMBER - A PURE OFFENSIVE WEAPON !?

      The S-500 can shoot down the B-21, which for the latter is a threat. Mission B-21 will be in jeopardy. What is unusual for Americans after air supremacy in Libya, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

    As if the existing S-300, S-400 in a good scenario can not "threaten"?

    The V-21 Raider is essentially a V-2 modification. They need to worry more about the Mig-31BM interceptors with the R-37M on board, rather than the stationary S-500, five hundred will work only on JAASM-ER (980 km destruction range), issued from B-21 are not included in the air defense zone.

      In our country, practically all air defense and missile defense systems will be tied into one single information field, so S-500 radars will be able to freely direct not only their missiles, but also missiles of other systems, S-300, S-400, S-, into all enemy air targets 350 and others. The main thing is to timely detect and accurately direct missiles. And even the old S-200 can successfully successfully shoot down invisible aircraft with precise guidance, we have already seen.

    From the orig. articles (transl. google):

    The S-500 was not developed as a replacement for the S-400 and S-300V4 systems, which are currently the most powerful long-range air defense systems in Russia, and are instead intended to neutralize more important targets, including space planes, hypersonic planes, and intercontinental range ballistic missiles, satellites, invisible bombers, AWACS and other auxiliary aircraft and all kinds of hypersonic missiles. The platform has a maximum range of 600 km - where S-400 and S-300V4 had a range of 400 km when deploying a 40N6E missile and 250 km without it. The S-500 will be able to integrate into the air defense network with old missile systems, and is expected to revolutionize Russia's ability to respond to a new generation of threats from a number of current American weapons programs, such as the B-21 stealth bomber, SR-72 hypersonic space plane and new medium-range hypersonic missiles - all of which are expected to be in service by 2030. It is assumed that the S-500 may appear for the first time at the Victory Parade in 2020.

    If you read with aspiration, drama, so that Stanislavsky “believed”, then yes - “the American media are sounding the alarm "," tearing hair and not only on the head "," what the Military Watch reports with alarm". laughing
    And the funniest thing is that

    material authors bitterly ascertainthat the S-500 will be integrated into the existing air defense system of the country.

    The Pentagon weeps, cancels all development, dismisses the staff, goes on vacation and transfers the premises to kindergartens. laughing
    I understand that without the drama of Chekhov / Dostoevsky / Tolstoy, the Russian reader cannot understand / appreciate the translated article.

        The author did not hide the fact that info from Military Watch, I often read this publication. Google Military watch magazine.
        Go to MilitaryWatchMagazine.com, on Search, type S-500 and find dozens of articles. One of them is the original:

        https://militarywatchmagazine.com/article/russia-conducting-final-tests-for-s-500-hypersonic-air-defence-system-with-entry-into-frontline-service-imminent

        Russia is conducting final tests of the S-500 supersonic air defense system - commissioning very soon.

        And my quote is from this article.

    No one has seen this very S-500, it is not clear what is at stake. And one plane or one air defense system cannot solve something there. Plane departure is planned, air defense is being studied, which may be in its way, if something interferes, it is jammed, so it is not known to whom and whom to fear.

          Yes, it’s so easy, everything is done only in fairy tales, but in reality it’s not so simple. The S-500 is a complex that is not planned to be exported, at least until our aerospace forces completely receive the planned amount, no one will sell it abroad.

              He is actually ready. If you are so knowledgeable, you should know it. In the summer, the complex of state tests will end and the S-500 air defense system will go into series, for this, everything is ready at the factories near Nizhny Novgorod.

                  Well, then the price of your knowledge is worthless. Armats are actively being tested in the army. Each completely new technique requires refinement in order to identify all the shortcomings and timely eliminate them. And for this you need some time. Or do you think - they will immediately begin to be stamped in hundreds, without having checked in business? This is stupid to hear from you, you, it seems, are not stupid and must understand this !!!

                      So the Russian media have nothing to do with it. I am directly involved in the production of tanks in Nizhny Tagil, and I can talk about this much more correctly than in any media. Of course, I can’t and will not give any figures, but the serial production of Almaty is the business of the next few years, and the series will be very impressive.

                        There is no technology, electronics are completely absent, you are extremely dependent on imports and they will not sell you anything that can be used for military purposes.

                        Your opinion on practically all topics related to the Russian Federation and the USSR has long been clear - "no, you can’t, you don’t know how", and so on, you haven’t invented anything new here - in short, this line of commentators can be called "sedated" - I your attitude is deep down to the bulb - I have different views on a lot, so writing about the fact that everything is bad, will not work without an answer, but the one who reads is most often able to draw conclusions ...
                        Yes, and you definitely need to buy? There are already examples, or were - both under Serdyukov and not in our country, so your “purchases” are not particularly and always needed, in so many issues ...
