Asia Times: Russians deliver weapons to Armenia against Turkish drones


The conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh forced the Russians to send weapons against drones to Armenia, the Hong Kong-based Asia Times writes.


Armenia is a member of the CSTO, so Russia is trying to protect its strategic ally, and at the same time its military facilities in this country from possible attacks by drones of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, Turkish and Israeli production. At the same time, Ankara, unlike Tel Aviv, actively advertises its military products in various conflicts, for which already paid... Canada and Austria have banned the export of certain products to Turkey. Therefore, the Turks may now have problems with aircraft engines and video cameras for their drones.

Russian military sources and mass media report that multifunctional mobile electronic suppression systems 1RL257 "Krasukha-4" have already been delivered to the territory of Armenia. These are the latest and most advanced electronic warfare systems, or more correctly, electronic warfare systems, which are at the disposal of the Russian Armed Forces.

Russia deployed the Krasukha-4 complexes at the Khmeimim base in Syria in 2015. Since then, according to the Russians, they have been contactlessly “shooting down” jihadist drones, and in 2018 helped repel a massive attack by US Tomahawk cruise missiles.

If this is true, and so far no one denies this, then the Krasukha-4 complexes should already be located at the Gyumri base in Armenia.

The family of Russian complexes "Krasukha" was originally designed to protect the territory of military bases and important industrial facilities from enemy aerial and space reconnaissance. However, the Russians found this development also useful in countering drones.

"Krasukha-4" does not take control of drones. It effectively jammed GPS signals and the drone loses contact with its base, after which it crashes.

By sending the Krasukha-4 complexes to Armenia, the Russians made it clear that they would fight the drones of other states if they find themselves in Armenian airspace.

    Turks behave like in an oriental bazaar - the peculiarities of the mentality. Krasuha, will perform several tasks: anti-advertising of Turkish and Israeli equipment, defense of the base, testing equipment and people in combat conditions, etc. The defense of Soros Pashenyan's protege in the 240th place of honor.

      The VO website contains information that the President of Azerbaijan announced the supply of Russian weapons to the belligerent Armenia. From the base in Gyumri. Without which, Aliyev stressed, Armenia would not have survived a day. So not only from Hong Kong, but also from Azerbaijan, you can see everything. And it's not just about the weapons supplied to Armenia by Russia. What Ilham Heydarovich knew perfectly well before the statement. This is a demonstration that Baku will continue offensive actions without focusing on an unfriendly Moscow. Doesn't Aliyev overestimate his own strength? Azerbaijan's real ally is Turkey. Pakistan and Afghanistan - background. And the Russian Federation will obviously be stronger than Turkey. And economic relations with the Russian Federation, a huge diaspora oblige Baku to behave more restrainedly.

    This is not so a bit. In aircraft modeling, and for reconnaissance aircraft, as well as combat and reconnaissance "aircraft" that have appeared relatively recently, the principle is the same: we have control at a frequency of 2,4 Giga, telemetry at 5,8 Gig. I don't know what frequencies the military has. GPS also happens, we call it "point flight". Raised, flies along the route, returns. There is also an auto takeoff with auto landing. Mute GPS, glasses (monitor) will show, drive to the runway manually. The connection will be cut off - Fail Safe will work, the samik will stand in a circle and gently land on whom God will send ...)))

      And this is also "jammed":

      "Krasukha-4" is capable of "jamming" not only the signal of enemy radar stations, but also the radio control channels of unmanned aerial vehicles.
      Wiki

      Mute GPS, glasses (monitor) will show, drive to the runway manually.

      See above

      The connection will be cut off - Fail Safe will work, the samik will stand in a circle and gently land on whom God will send ...

      This is for sure, without GPS exactly "to whom God will send", or where they will offer.

        Further, it is possible to develop in an autonomous mode on the terrain and beacons with a "bookmark" of the flight program before takeoff, that is, excluding the GPS orientation. Control from satellites is possible, etc. So the "hatchets" are already flying on part of the way ... Then the "Krasuha" will not be able to approach ...

          that is, excluding the GPS orientation.

          GPS just serves to self-position yourself. That is, to see where you are. Without GPS it is possible only visually - according to the terrain. It's too expensive for a small drone. It's useless for the big one.
          Satellite control - see above.
          Tomahawks are easy prey not only for electronic warfare.

            You are somehow not specific ... Especially "For the big one - it is useless.", It seems like today the opposite is true .. Especially surprised. "Tomoghawks are easy prey not only for electronic warfare" so tomahawks of different generations, are they the last ... In military technology, you can never know everything, and even powerful intelligence services are not aware of the latest developments ...

              Especially "For the big one - it's useless."

              To use these expensive things against countries that have the means, to detect, lead and shoot them down from great distances is a costly business, and therefore makes them useless. And, as they say, they do not mind missiles.

              I was especially surprised. "Tomoghawks are easy prey not only for electronic warfare" so tomohawks of different generations, whether the last are lying ...

              The strike by the "last" on Syria has not yet faded from memory.
              They fell down themselves, or they were helped: you can solve this puzzle yourself.
              Neither the first nor the second is in their favor.

              By the way .. one "ax" was even "landed" whole, taken away, dismantled, and "admired") the latest developments.

    What order can a worthless Armenian president give? He will demand to deploy a strategic headquarters right 100 meters from the Russian base, cots 50 meters away, and toilets 20. The more terrifying they are, the closer they will be to the fence of the Russian base.

    But bayraktar does not use gps for navigation. He has an inertial platform there.

      I'm not sure what this is, but maybe - then minus Baikotaru, because all types of inertial platforms (and there are 3 of them) have their own strengths and weaknesses.
      The navigation accuracy required for a UAV can only be provided by a two-platform geometric system. But its disadvantage is that it does not work satisfactorily on highly maneuverable vehicles, therefore it is installed mainly on large aircraft (transport, passenger, strategists), or on large ships and submarines.
      Well, the cost.

      Analytical systems work well on maneuverable objects, but they lose their accuracy closer to the surface of the earth.

      Semi-analytical systems need support for other types of (non-autonomous) navigation. Where we started.)

    Asia Times: Russians deliver weapons to Armenia against Turkish drones

    -Well, that's what to expect ...
    -In the subject:

    Expert: Moscow did not fall into Pashinyan's trap in Karabakh

    - Personally, I already wrote that:

    - Personally, I am absolutely sure that ... that ... that very soon our guarantor ... as always ... - slyly chuckling and with a very satisfied expression on his face ... - will announce that Russia provides Armenia "n-th" amount of loans; and will also announce the supply of the most modern types of Russian weapons to Armenia (of course, free of charge)

    - To these supplies should be added another "n-th" amount of loans from Russia and ... and Russian operators and all Russian service personnel (up to car drivers) for these Krasukha-4 systems ... - But this is not it is worth putting a point; since most likely, Russian "strike attack systems" with Russian crews arrived ...
    -Here are the Russians ... all the same ... - and harnessed to these "showdowns" ...
    - And most likely ... the offensive of the Azerbaijani "victorious troops" ... -that's about to choke and everything will turn into sluggish skirmishes on both sides ... - Unless, of course, the Armenians themselves do not abandon their positions and evaporate ... - how was demonstrated in one of the last topics (about "slingshot against tanks") ...

    Well, if everything happens as it is said in the commentary of gorenina91 Irina about the fact that the entire crew and operators and service personnel are also representatives of the Russian army, then everything falls into place! The OSCE Minsk Group was created in order to wrest land from Azerbaijanis and transfer it to friendly Armenia. It is not known how events will develop further, but at such a pace it remains to wait for a GREAT SHUKHER with the participation of several regional powers! Thanks to Pashinyan, he can report back to the West in the spirit of "the task is completed by your order"!
