The Americans showed the "destruction" of the Russian air defense using an analogue of the "Iskander"


A video appeared on YouTube showing the tests of the latest promising operational-tactical missile, created under the Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) program. By its purpose, it is a kind of analogue of the Russian Iskander-M OTRK.


The video demonstrates the "destruction" of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft complex by the Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) tactical missiles from the M142 HIMARS missile system. At the same time, the Russian anti-aircraft gun, judging by the palms caught in the frame, was allegedly in one of the countries of Africa or the Middle East.


The missiles were aimed at the target using the latest 5th generation fighter F-35. Judging by the ease with which the missile attack was carried out, the S-400 "did not see" any attacking missiles or a combat aircraft, which in itself raises questions for American animators.

The PrSM tactical missile was developed last year. According to US Army General John Rafferty, it is capable of overcoming Russian air defenses in Europe without apparent effort. In the Asia-Pacific region, the Americans plan to use these weapons in order to counter the warships of China. Serial production of PrSM Pentagon planned for 2023.

According to data from the website of the rocket manufacturer Lockheed Martin, the maximum range of the ammunition is 499 km.

    In cartoons from Lockheed Martin, the Yankees have already sunk the Russian missile cruisers ... the reality is different

    According to data from the website of the rocket manufacturer Lockheed Martin, the maximum range of the ammunition is 499 km.

    That is, purely hypothetically, if we assume that they want to destroy the S400 air defense system, which is 400 km deep from the Russian borders (borders) protected by it, with this missile, then the launcher must be adjusted to the Russian border by at least 100 (99) km. This distance, in turn, is easily fired upon even by modern MLRS systems, not to mention aviation, and other, more serious systems for suppressing such firing points.

    This American system will fire a maximum of 1-2 times, the missiles of which will be easily shot down by the S400 itself. After that, this "firing point" will simply be razed to the ground.

    Attacking is always more difficult than defending. We need a multiple advantage. And here we have to attack the smallest (!), Technologically equal, enemy. Not only do the Americans have no such experience - to fight against equals, but for that their potential adversary (Russia) has such (centuries-old) experience - more than enough.

    How do you even notice the F-35?
    Do you even think at least sometimes that you write laughing
    He took off from the airbase, that's all. He dissolved in space and time. Consider he never existed.
    Well this is stealth Well you need to understand request

    new radars for illumination and guidance of the S-300 B4 and S-400 air defense systems perfectly detect and guide the F-35 stealth technology works well against radio waves of the centimeter range with decimeter, it has problems with visibility. The listed complexes have radars of the decimeter range

      According to Russian military experts, the "curvature of the Earth" is an insurmountable obstacle for the S-400. That is why they did not show themselves in any way in Syria.
