Russian S-300V4 "zeroed" promising US hypersonic missiles


The Russian S-300V4 air defense system was able to hit hypersonic targets. This was reported the day before by the edition "News" with reference to a source in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.


Recall that the S-300V4 air defense system entered service in 2014. The fully digital complex is designed to protect against any type of air attack. The system is capable of simultaneously guiding up to 24 aerodynamic targets or 16 ballistic missiles. Unlike the usual "three hundred" modification S-300V4 is capable of reliably covering two to three times a large area.

Now, thanks to the new ammunition, the complex will be able to effectively resist operational-tactical and even hypersonic missiles, which is confirmed by tests carried out this year. The product is capable of accelerating to hypersonic speed and hitting targets at a distance of 400 km.

Previously, the S-300V4 was equipped with two types of missiles: medium (100-120 km) and long (up to 200 km) range. Apparently, it was on the basis of the latter that the latest ammunition was created.

It should be noted that only Russia currently has active hypersonic weapons. In the US and China, similar missiles are under development. According to experts, the S-300V4, equipped with the latest ammunition, will be able to reliably protect our airspace not only from modern, but also from promising weapons for 10-15 years ahead.

    It is strange that they did not report that the S-300 could shoot down the Death Star and hit the Moon.
    How many squeals there were when the S-400 was delivered to Syria, that no flies would fly closer than 400 km, the Syrian sky was forever closed from enemy aircraft and free.
    Well, at least some kind of lousy airplane was shot down with it, for so many years of operation! But the squeak about the incredible qualities of the S-300, which never shot down anything, for the rest of the world air defense!

    ... It is worth noting that today only Russia has active hypersonic weapons ...

    - The FAU-2 was hypersonic. Yes, there is, the first stage of the Iskander, launched from the MIG-25, that's all Putin's hypersound!

      This article is for "Hurray for Patriots" - to be proud, they still don't understand nichrome in the technique, fantasize what you want.

      If you want to neigh, listen to Putin's speech at the Valdai Forum! Laugh out loud! But it will be true and a little scary that such a mediocre person has been running a large country for 20 years and clinging to power.
      And then write here what was especially funny, about breakthroughs, about sacks or getting up from your knees.

    Yes, they have not been useful in Syria yet, in Karabakh, too, not really, now they will nullify the hypersound.
    Ah, already zeroed.

    The opinion of unknown announcers is especially valuable in such reviews!

      I wonder myself how you can make some kind of statement about shooting down hypersonic devices, if in reality there was not a single successful combat launch! And all the systems are of a lower class: OSA, Carapace have done well. In my opinion, super arrogance!

    This is certainly great, but if the speed of the hyperrocket is 8 thousand km / h, then it overcomes 2 km per second. The C300 crew will only have 30 seconds to react. I think this is not enough. The target must be found either thousands of kilometers away, or the process must be fully automated.

      This is news for Putin's suckers! The pension is 11, but s-000 can shoot down hypersonic missiles, which means that the increase in pensions has gone to work, so bear with me, dear pensioners!

        And if you add to this amount

        http://duma.gov.ru/news/49633/

        this Babylonian list of social guarantees, benefits and rights, what will be the sum? Perhaps somewhere in 2-3 times more, and if someone receives expensive drugs, then even 40 times. I wonder how pensioners have the same in other countries?

        Of course, if you remember the sold pensioners in Ukraine, who have no real social security and benefits, then ours are simply gorgeous against their background.

        If we compare with the Germans, then ours have room to grow. But our retirees in 91 did not touch a finger to save their country, it was they who also allowed the banditry of the 90s, of which they were a part, hid from the tax authorities, gave bribes, and now they receive exactly as much as they earned in their previous life. Those young people who are now will receive the pension that they will earn over the years. In a country that they either build themselves or happily burn on some Maidan, like the current pensioners in 91 and Ukrainian in 14.

        Is this a lot of 11 thousand or not enough? For me, they are still very lucky.

          Vorobiev took away free travel from pensioners near Moscow, two years ago. Of the real benefits, this is half of the payment for housing and communal services for Moscow, as for other regions I do not know. And the tax on the dacha (second apartment). If there are several dachas and or apartments, then only one apartment (dacha) tax is not paid. For reference, the tax on my dacha (house in the village), the far suburbs of Moscow, is 300 rubles a year, this is a savings!
          The list is long, but essentially empty! Free medicines only from retirees that are veterans of the Great Patriotic War and those equated to them. A list of drugs that's free minuscule! My mother is a pensioner, 4000-5000 rubles are spent on medicines. per month! What is free, they only treat a runny nose!

          ... Of course, if you remember the sold pensioners in Ukraine, who have no real social security and benefits, then ours are simply gorgeous against their background ...

          The average pension in Ukraine today is about 8000 rubles (in Russia this figure is 12000), taking into account the PPP, pensioners in Ukraine and here live about the same!
          My young friend, Darwin fan!

          ... Is this a lot of 11 thousand or not enough? For me, they are still very lucky ...

          - You would approach the pensioners who play dominoes with this phrase of yours that a pension of 11000 is a great success, so they would destroy you, your little head, right there.

            - I agree with you ... - everything is real-tragic and sad-comical ...
            - For 15 years now, the demonstration of a documentary and feature film has been going on, where our guarantor, under the guise of an appeal to the people, imitates answers to topical questions of the life of the Russian State; during which they constantly mention and (as it has already been clarified for this considerable time period) futile attempts to improve the lives of ordinary Russians ...
            -In fact, this multi-part show does not differ in variety; those. the first, very old "series" of this film ... are absolutely analogous to yesterday's series ... of this film ... -The content of this "series" is known to everyone ... -Why retell it ... -A whole generation of Russians has grown up on this "serial" ...
            - Yes, and the problems are the same ... - chronic obsolete ... Great Russia has remained a raw material colony for the whole world and all efforts of the Russian leadership are being made to ensure that this enslavement is inherited by all subsequent generations of Russians ..; - new polyclinics have not been built ... - Russian pharmaceuticals have not been created, which are affordable for Russians; factories and factories do not work; science, technology centers in disgrace; the priorities of the Russian Space have been lost; a weak defense industry is not capable of re-equipping the Russian Army; the lag in the field of creating domestic office equipment and software is increasing ... and so on and so on ...
            -It's not worth mentioning ... -all as it was ... it is ... -and our aged guarantor still laughs merrily in these "new series" ... -all also ...- it is not clear what ...

    New ammunition for existing launchers is very good.
    PS: An interesting tendency: 5 - 30% of comments are under articles on the topic, and the rest is offtopic, which, in theory, is prohibited by the rules of the site.
