Why the Pentagon is afraid of the capabilities of the Russian electronic warfare system "Murmansk-BN"


It is generally accepted that the US Navy has complete control of the World Ocean, and the NATO Air Force unconditionally dominates the skies of the Old World. The North Atlantic Alliance is continuously approaching Russian borders, deploying its military infrastructure around it, and American missile destroyers, reconnaissance aircraft and UAVs have become constant and uninvited guests near our borders, demonstrating a potential threat.


However, every action, as you know, gives rise to opposition. Domestic defenders were able to create such an electronic warfare complex that it is able to blind and stun the enemy machinery at a distance of 3 to 5 thousand kilometers, or even more. This technological miracle is called "Murmansk-BN".

The rapid development of communication systems, navigation and airborne electronic systems gave the military many new opportunities, but it also created its own "Achilles' heel". If a warship or an aircraft loses communication, or even completely loses the ability to effectively control its weapons, for some time it turns into helpless and easy prey. Today, many modern electronic warfare systems are known, for example, the Russian "Krasukhi", which are capable of jamming enemy technical equipment with radio waves at a distance of up to 300 kilometers. "Krasukha-4" is a very effective type of electronic weapon, which has been tested more than once in the defense of the Khmeimim airbase in Syria. American military pilots repeatedly experienced difficulties with the operation of their navigation systems, and therefore the Pentagon even had to change the general contractor, who supplied the occupiers with new GPS receivers using M-Code encryption technologies and helped to increase the signal strength.

However, all these are childish pranks in comparison with "Murmansk-BN", the capabilities of which are simply amazing. It should be noted that work on an electronic warfare complex of strategic importance began back in the days of the USSR in the 60s, but then there were serious problems with the component base. In the nineties, everything stopped for a long time, but in 2014 the first Murmansk-BN entered the Northern Fleet, in 2017 the second - to the Black Sea, and in 2018 the third - to the Baltic Fleet. There is information about the presence of an electronic warfare complex in the Far East, where it covers the Pacific Fleet. A huge advantage of "Murmansk-BN" is its mobility. Technically, it consists of four huge telescopic antennas, each 32 meters high, and is transported on seven off-road trucks. The assembly time until its activation is only 3 days. This means that, if necessary, the strategic electronic warfare system can be quickly deployed by military transport aviation and quickly mounted on the territory of some friendly country, from where its zone of responsibility will cover a space with a radius of 3-5 thousand kilometers (and in reality, most likely, up to 8 thousand kilometers).


So, now let's see what Murmansk-BN is capable of. The Russian complex has the ability to conduct electronic reconnaissance, intercept and suppress enemy signals in the shortwave range of 3-30 MHz. It continuously scans the air in automatic mode, identifying "own" and "alien" signals, drowning out, if necessary, "alien" narrow-band interference. When trying to signal the enemy to get out of control, "Murmansk-BN" again tracks him and "sticks" to the fugitive. What does this mean in practice? And the fact that the Russian complex is jamming communication between aircraft, ships and command posts of the enemy. Escort ships as part of the order of the carrier strike group will not be able to coordinate their actions, AWACS aircraft will not be able to transmit coordinates for target designation to fighters. For a while, all his offensive and defensive power is lost, which can be used for his own attack.

At the same time, the key point is the exceptional range of this system. "Murmansk-BN", transferred to the Northern Fleet of the Russian Federation, is located on the Kola Peninsula, the Black Sea - in the Crimea, Baltic - in Kaliningrad. Adding a radius of 5 thousand kilometers, we find that the RF Ministry of Defense covers the entire Europe and the Mediterranean Sea with a strategic electronic warfare complex. If we increase its artificially limited power, then the radius will grow to 8 thousand kilometers. Here we are not only taking control of the Northwest Atlantic, but also "striking" along the borders of the United States of America. The Pentagon clearly has something to tense up. And if a strategic electronic warfare appears, for example, in friendly Venezuela or, what the hell is not joking, in Cuba in Lourdes?

But the advantages of "Murmansk-BN" are not limited to this. It contains a fairly large potential for modernization. In particular, it is noted that the complex can be taught to jam the signals of the American global positioning system GPS. Then the Americans will have no time for jokes.

    Here! What a Pentagon - not far-sighted. I told the author ... what is he afraid of!
    And what is the Pentagon to do now !? Will go to the field "Krasukha" or "Murmansk" everything! it's time to give up! Hooray We have already won!

    Well, that's great ... if all of this actually happens. Of course, such complexes need powerful protection. The enemy will try to destroy them with all necessary means in the first place.

      Naturally, you need to cover.
      But, the effect of such radiation on the environment is interesting. Including the defenders of these complexes, because they are not 5000 thousand miles away, and often not so far away. Will they be given out "foil hats" or will they limit themselves to milk?

    3-30 MHz. The day is not even yesterday, but the day before yesterday.
    S.E. really pleased.
    And then ours and other FPV countries in other countries fly with 2,4 GHz control and 5,8 GHz telemetry.
    So what? God forbid, what a war, the female copters will return to the point, the guys will put beer in their cars and go home to drink beer and exchange on forums-beech-dacs, as it flew today ... fellow

    Yes, the Pentagon is already trembling with fear.
    When literally everyone already knows how to jam GPS, Murmansk-BN does not yet know how.
    after all, GPS lies far beyond 3-30 MHz

    but as he learns, 5 thousand km is already beyond the near space. - the kapets will probably come to literally everything .....))))) Will satellites fall on your head?

    And the radio - VHF, he will not interfere with listening, it comes out

    The Russian Federation will not be joking if it does not modernize its nuclear shield, etc. This is the unity that is really afraid of the United States. All these means of war will be instantly destroyed and have some effect with a technologically weaker adversary. are.

    Sergey Marzhetskyenough to talk about how a multi-ton electronic warfare complex, which began to be developed half a century ago and is now finally finished, in an era when satellite communications and control are installed even on small UAVs - this is not even absurd, this is a mockery of those who will read ...

    Firstly, I did not write that it was Murmansk that was launched half a century ago. Developments in this area have started. No need to juggle.
    Secondly, the presence of conscience is questioned by me in the majority of local Russian-speaking Israelis-emigrants. Got it?

    I do not quite understand the subject of banter, Bindyuzhnik's friend. As a journalist, I talked about the development of the domestic military-industrial complex.
    What exactly amused you about this? What did I specifically "please" you with? Do you have any complaints about the performance characteristics of Murmansk? Do you consider it possible to express them to me in a mock form? Didn't you confuse anything?

    - Who cares what you think about someone's conscience - if you yourself are not ashamed to pass off as a miracle weapon the most stupid drank dough that can only be imagined today?
    From this terrible scrap metal for the surrounding grannies, one could build a hundred thousand pans and distribute to all of them by the day of March 8! laughing lol

    - If you were really a serious journalist and knew how to delve deeply into the topic about which you are going to write at the moment, then you could write a wonderful critical article on how the people's money is completely shamelessly stolen for mega-projects that have absolutely no practical value.
    And if you periodically sprinkle articles on electronic warfare - read at least a couple of books on the topic in order to get at least a general idea of ​​the subject?

    Murmansk-BN operates in the frequency range 3 - 30 MHz, i.e. at wavelengths 100 - 10 meters. And what can he "suppress" in AUG in this range?
    1. Communication - satellite, - no, it does not suppress.
    2. Navigation - satellite, GPS, - no, it does not suppress.
    3. Radar (all) - operate in the centimeter range, - no, it does not suppress.
    4. SAM "Aegis", missile control - centimeter range, - no, it does not suppress.
    So what can suppress this multi-ton crap worth crazy money in AUG ?? Answer: NOTHING SERIOUS. So what is it for today? It is not needed by anyone, except for those who were profitable to get the loot for it, "burying it in the ground" a thousand times greater funds ...

      For widespread use on this issue, open information on the Internet is quite enough.

      Judging by your reaction, this is not enough for you, you sniff out details. For this, they put on the cadet's uniform, to breed burdocks on the "lyrics"?

    - It is designed not even for the weak-minded, but for complete cretins, this is even more foolish than the note that Sergei Marzhetsky wrote - it is clear that for the sake of margin! laughing On the F-35 there is no avionics operating in the 3-30 MHz range! Not at all! Dolbolom, who created the plot of the video, had no idea about this, he does not understand that one of the five most important conditions of electronic warfare is violated here - FREQUENCY!
