Why Russia is equipping Belarus with the latest anti-aircraft guns

The anti-aircraft missile forces of the Republic of Belarus continue to re-equip with the new Russian S-400 Triumph and Pantsir-S complexes. What does this mean for our country and what advantages will the union state receive?

As for the latter, everything seems to be clear here without any explanation. Belarus gets at its disposal air defense systems, which have no analogues in the world.

However, not everyone is of this opinion. For example, in Sweden in 2019, the results of a study of the potential of the Russian armed forces in the Baltic were published. So, in this material, the S-400 system was called a "soap bubble". According to the Swedes, long-range missiles for the S-400 have not yet been tested, and the task of organizing the interception of over-the-horizon targets will be too tough for the Russians for the next 10-15 years.

At the same time, experts from the American edition of The National Interest absolutely disagree with their Swedish colleagues. The publication claims that Russia has already completed tests of long-range anti-aircraft missiles and will re-equip all 2027 divisions with them by 56. As for over-the-horizon detection, the newest Voronezh and Sky-M radars will cope with this task. The latter will direct the missile to the target area, and the ammunition homing head will take over the rest of the work.

However, the aforementioned disputes can be ignored thanks to Turkey. Ankara has clearly demonstrated the superiority of our Triumph over the American Patriot. At the same time, the S-400 not only proved its ability to intercept the main NATO attack aircraft F-16 and F-18 at a distance greater than the range of their weapons, but also questioned the much-advertised "invisibility" of the F-35.

As a result, the transition to new Russian complexes will provide Belarus with reliable protection of its airspace. Russia, having armed its ally, gets an additional argument against the background of NATO plans to flood Europe with F-35 fighters.

    No, she did not. "Triumph" has never been used for its intended purpose in combat conditions. "Patriot" - used.

    but also questioned the much-touted "invisibility" of the F-35.

    First, not "invisibility", but "stealth". Secondly, how did the S-400 "question" the stealth of the F-35, if it was never used against it, and in Turkey itself there is no F-35 at all?

    Of course there are no analogues. It's stupid to repeat after someone. Doesn't the USA or Turkey or Iran have analogues?
    During VM2, the Nazis were not helped by jet planes, nor the V2, nor the best submarines and tanks.

      The world is what it was created in a given period of time. Outcasts are only opponents of the rulers of today's World. History knows times when “whoever was nobody, he will become everything,” like today's sovereigns, so wait a little (the process has begun, as the vindictive person said), and everything will change places in the world again ... Regarding the S-400 in Belarus, thus the defense lines are pushed further from the borders of the Russian Federation, with which one can congratulate, most importantly, not to let Belarus into the enemy camp, as Georgia, Ukraine and others were missed ...

        Outcast does not imply a majority.
        Belarus staggered. Lukashenka is becoming unpopular there. The economy will weaken more and more. And all this will hang on the Russian Federation as a burden for which you will have to pay yourself.
        Although for the Russian Federation, ruined and impoverished allies in the form of numerous nomes not recognized by the HP. And then there is Syria, Venezuela with millions of refugees and bastards in power.

      Outcasts? But what about the powerful Estonian SS units and "self-defense units" ("Omakaitse")?)

        Hello! Do you know why the emigrants are so vicious? And because they were "dumped" in 89-90, and those who remained became dollar millionaires, and others even billionaires ... Well, it's a shame ... request

    It seems to me that the outcast here is a petty limitrophe. It is even very clearly visible. It is hard for the poor fellow to see it realize

    The Russian Federation needs to equip its army, and not the multi-vector countries of the former union, which will betray the Russian Federation at the first nix without batting an eye
