Potential buyers of the newest S-500 air defense system named in the USA


The newest Russian S-500 long-range air defense systems can be delivered to other countries, since this hypersonic air defense system already has five potential customers, writes the American edition of Military Watch.


Despite serious delays and various related problems, it is expected that serial production of the S-2021 will begin by the end of 500, and they will begin to enter service with units of the RF Armed Forces. Now they are being tested. These air defense systems will become an additional element of the already extremely powerful air defense system of Russia. They are designed to counter emerging threats from enemy hypersonic missiles, space drones and orbiting aircraft that are still under development in the United States.

Thus, the S-500 will be used to neutralize the most important and dangerous targets. But if necessary, they will be able to work well with the S-300 and S-400, helping them to destroy stealth fighters and promising American-made B-21 strategic bombers. Therefore, the attractiveness of effective S-500 abroad will be very high.

China was the first to acquire S-300 and S-400 air defense systems, R-77 air-to-air missiles, Su-27 and Su-35 fighters, as well as other products of the Russian military-industrial complex. Over the years, the Chinese have managed to develop their own weapons systems and even squeeze Russia in a number of areas of the defense sector. economics... However, Moscow is still ahead of Beijing and remains the leader in space warfare and air defense systems. Therefore, there is no doubt that as soon as the S-500s are adopted, China will want to buy them, fearing the United States.

Belarus is Russia's only reliable and only ally in Europe. But it has catastrophically insufficient funds to purchase the latest weapons. However, given that Minsk occupies a strategically important position in the western direction, Moscow can make a significant discount on its products, supplying what is needed at “friendly prices”. This is beneficial primarily to Russia itself.

India has long been one of the leading buyers of Russian military-industrial complex products. Recently, New Delhi ordered an S-400 air defense system from Moscow for an amount exceeding $ 5 billion. At the same time, the Indians openly ignore the concerns of the Americans and the threats emanating from Washington. India has someone to fear - this is China, the rivalry with which, and sometimes even open confrontation, has been going on for many years. Therefore, no one can keep India from buying the S-500.

Algeria has become a regular buyer of Russian arms. He regularly shows interest in the new products of the Russian military-industrial complex, and until recently this country had money. The Algerian military values ​​Russian weapons highly and speaks well of them. But the collapse in energy prices in 2020 casts doubt on the future solvency of Algeria. But it all depends on the market. If oil and gas prices are normal, the Algerians will turn to the Russians.

Iran is showing great interest in Russian military products. Given the "five-year" embargo, Tehran is literally "starving" for new weapons. No doubt the Iranians will want to buy the newest designs. equipment... This country is seriously worried about possible attacks from the United States, a number of NATO countries and Israel, which significantly stimulates the Iranians to actively engage in military-technical cooperation with Moscow.

    I would like to note that all the customers of the Russian complexes, except Belarus, were colonies, or were actively destroyed by representatives of the West. And there is nothing to be surprised at.

    ... Meanwhile, the "authoritative American magazine" Military Watch, appeared only in February, and in the last month of 2018, gained a little more than 100 thousand visitors (more or less serious media usually collect 1 material), and they refer to this site only in Russia. The domain name of the site was only registered in February 2018 ...

    (The Insider)

    Enough of the nonsense from the "American" edition to reprint. Senator Pushkov, in addition to "The National Interest", also registered the Militaru vatch, and you hung up your ears.
    It’s clear that the S-300, S-400 and all other S- * 000s are expensive and not an effective system in the UAV age. How much does a separate country need to supply these C - *** and short and medium range systems to it (to protect C - *** from UAVs) so that they can, to a minimum extent, reflect the UAV raid of a country like Turkey? That three budgets will go away.

      In Syria, Turkey has already washed up, having lost several of its newest, produced in Turkey, until, almost by the piece, the newest UAVs, after which the Turks in Syria sat down exactly on the priest. Although, they still continue to puff out their cheeks ... but ... the Turks will end very badly.

        Really? The cost of the UAVs of Turkey, which they used and the Pantsir, are not comparable, plus, when a drone is shot down, the flying robot dies, when, Pantsir, then the entire crew. Turkey, unfortunately, did not wash, but stopped the Syrian offensive in Idlib, and stopped only by drones.
        Putin profiled with his shells, Iskanders and other Poseidons modern warfare. It is necessary to catch up, at least to approach Turkey.

          All videos of the destroyed Carapaces indicate that none of them was in a combat position, or even in working order, so it's not a fact that there was a crew there at all. Strike drones Turkey does not mass-produce yet, and each machine is, in fact, hand-assembled, and therefore its price is very high.

      - Yes, almost all of these S-300s; S-400; C-500 td ... -were equated to ... to ... to. Nuclear weapons that cannot be used ... -But if the whole world is still afraid of nuclear weapons, then these useless and expensive systems are becoming more and more rather skeptical ...
      - With these systems in time to shoot down satellites; and they are going to shoot at sparrows ...
      -Besides, there is still no particular certainty that someone and the "buyers" of these systems paid off with Russia in full for this supplied weapon ...
      -Well, China ... as always ...- stuffed Russia with all kinds of Chinese junk and second-hand Chinese equipment in payment ... for the S-400 supplied by Russia ...
      -And Greece ... and at all ... most likely did not pay ... -Yes, and Turkey ... - This is such a "Russian commerce" ...

      The S -... systems are not designed for drones, except for large ones. The Khmeimim base in Syria has been repeatedly attacked by drones, not one passed. So there is still effective protection against copters and drones.
      Small, wooden drones, which have scanty EPR, were launched at the Khmeimim base, nevertheless they were shot down and planted.

      Systems C ... should shoot down planes and cruise missiles, and of course large UAVs.
      You have bent your "analytics" in the wrong direction.

        I'm not saying the C *** are meant for cheap drones. I say that a penny drone can destroy S ***, and she will only look at him and smile, if she sees, of course. And therefore, to protect C ***, you also need a bunch of small air defense systems, which are also in great doubt that they will shoot down small UAVs or an anti-aircraft missile will be cheaper than a drone. That is, the cost of a relatively impenetrable air defense system increases to space.
        For object protection from the air, you need to pull together a bunch of air defense systems, exposing other objects.
        The base in Syria is just an example of the fact that they brought everything they could to protect it from drones made at the level of a circle of young pioneers. At the Syrian base, they are barely fighting off primitive drones. Let's imagine that not "garage" drones will attack the base, but Turkish ones. The result will be obvious, the Turks will destroy the entire base.
        Soon, words about the S-400 and S-500, which have no analogues in the world, will not cause a smile.

          Nonsense, the staffing of Russian air defense systems includes, in addition to the S-400, Buki and Pantsiri with electronic warfare systems, this is the case everywhere. If there is no such system, then the defense of the air defense is full of holes, and anyone will bomb you.
          If you think that the S-400 is unnecessary due to its high cost, then you will not have protection from cruise missiles and aircraft, that is, your territory will be bare from an enemy air defense strike.
          Now the Western press is straining from British attempts to undermine the S-400, but these are all unfounded statements.

          I don’t know where you got the idea that the Khmeimim base is barely defending itself against small drones, but so far none have passed the air defense defense. And once again I will remind you that small wooden airplanes have scanty RCS, but, nevertheless, they were all shot down or landed, having taken control; and a small airplane with a scanty RCS is not a big UAV that gets off much easier.

          If a country does not have the means to maintain the S-400, then it simply does not need to buy them, but the country will not be protected from attacks by enemy aircraft and cruise missiles.

            ... includes, in addition to the S-400, also Buki and Pantsiri with electronic warfare systems, this is the case everywhere. ...

            - so you answered the key question, what if you do it "according to your mind", it is expensive, even we will not be able to handle it. Maneuvering air defense means is difficult, this is not fighter aircraft, therefore, the Americans abandoned air defense in the form that we have, they only have missile defense (Patriots). It's expensive even for them. There was no real war, where our such motley air defense was used, see and trumpet about the super-duper characteristics that never shot down the S-400.
            Syria, Libya, and now Karabakh, have put everything in its place. They hit the air defense and hit quite effectively. You think that in Karabakh there would be a different result if they had Torah, Pantsiri and S-300, but the same, if only the attacking side would use a different outfit of forces.

            .. Now the Western press is straining from British attempts to undermine the S-400, but these are all unfounded statements ...

            You are a serious person, but you use the terminology of the buo'waon mass media, what does it mean to "undermine the S-400"?
            Until the safety zone was expanded to FIG knows how many kilometers, the drones flew to the GDP. They were accidentally shot down by shells from the shells cannons, but considering the resource of the barrel and the cost of the shells, it was also sparrow shooting. Until they pushed back the security zone, they broke through. About 6 years ago, I bought control panels and receivers for quadcopters and just airplanes on Ali. They worked at a frequency of 2.4 and 5.6 gigahertz, in my opinion they had 12 channels. There were remotes for $ 16, $ 50 and $ 200. So these Alish 12-channel receivers are not like electronic warfare, a similar remote control will crush. It is on these components that "garage" drones are made, and their electronic warfare is pressing. Anything serious, at the level of the Turkish military-industrial complex, I think that the electronic warfare will screw up in full.

        Don't worry, Tatiana. С- * 00 - the best in the Russian Internet segment. They can shoot down any plane 400 km away, but they see the F-35 in the hangar 800 km away. And for people like you, there are mind-blowing Putin cartoons. Wait, ZAO "Studio PutinMultiplication" will soon release a series of cartoons about the invincible S-500, which, if they hit the moon, will take the moon out of orbit. And then you will tell us what cool S-500s are.

          From the hangar, he does not see anything, no one has canceled the radio horizon, and for the pimply fans of Andersen's American followers as well. The very work of the F-35 radar is not reliable, the plane is damp, so he generally sees something no more than 50 to 50

            S-400 and S-500 sees through the hangar and even shows the radar operator if there is a pilot in the cockpit! The concept of a radio horizon, for С- * 00 no, he sees through the ground!
            Soon Putin will perform before the New Year, success - zero, which means that by the time of the speech C- * 00 will be able to bombard the moon!
            Yes, the F-35 is not just a crude plane, but it does not exist at all, and the Americans sniff the air for satellites. And the F-35 radar sees only 5 km ahead.
            Where are you from, putinoidy.

            - and this is certainly another matter! And what now at a tank in the parking lot, especially if it is without a crew or Carapace without a crew cannot be fired? This is a war, no matter how the enemy's military equipment was destroyed, it is important that they destroyed it.

              Try to buy glasses, you can understand the difference between the power of the antennas of the S-400 air defense system and the device that fits into the F-35 nose cone. And the F-35 radar itself is crude and works from time to time. If the Arabs smoke cannabis, instead of fighting, it is their technology to blame ?! The Tsakhal once stole from the Arabs the latest T-62 tanks, while they prayed to their Allah, they did not even kill these clowns. So now, the tank is to blame for the fact that the Arab crew is bullshit, or is the gasket between the steering wheel and the seat to blame ?!

                That is, you cannot sell weapons to Arabs. It is becoming clearer that our weapons are not for sale to the Middle East! And as I understand it, not for Africans, Latinos and other inferior peoples, they also have crooked hands. We stay, only we are Russians.
                During the war on 08.08.08, some unfortunate crooked Georgians shot down 5 (7) of our planes, even earlier in 1982 in the Bekaa Valley, the Israeli military smashed the air defense of Syria, which was built and operated by our advisers. Then it turns out that we cannot buy our weapons either, because our hands are not always sharpened correctly.
                If the concept of war is rubbish and weapons are rubbish, then there is nothing to blame the mirror (Arabs).

                There are vague doubts that, despite all its power and the size of the radar canvas, it will receive the S-400, which has no analogues in the world, from the wretched, raw and unfinished F-35 on the wort! But this is bullshit, the Arabs will still be to blame!

                  Yes, the Arabs with any weapon are not fighters, or have they forgotten how Saudi Arabia fought with western technology ?! And this is the best and most equipped Arab army with the highest salary of personnel in the world. 08.08.08/200/1982 the Georgian fleet went to the bottom, the air defense was covered, the Russian army captured 200 serviceable Georgian tanks.ch In 30, the Israeli Air Force lost XNUMX aircraft, and this is according to British data. So far, the Yankees have not been able to win a single training battle against the Indians on the Su-XNUMX
