Russian capital received incomparable protection from aerospace attack


Moscow and the Central Industrial Region, due to their importance for the country, have been covered by the most modern air defense systems since the times of the USSR. In the early 70s, the A-35 missile defense system took over on duty in the suburbs of the Russian capital. It was replaced, already in modern Russia, by the A-135 "Amur" system, designed to protect Moscow from a limited nuclear strike from the enemy.


To date, the efforts of leading domestic defense companies are developing an echeloned territorial missile defense system A-235 "Nudol". Its deployment on combat duty is scheduled for the mid-2020s.

Nevertheless, the defense of the Central Administrative-Industrial Region against the background of the tense geopolitical situation in the world requires urgent measures. According to a source close to the Ministry of Defense, the first brigade set of the S-500 Prometey anti-aircraft missile system has already been put at the disposal of the 15th Army of the Aerospace Special Forces (15 A VKS OSN) in Krasnoznamensk (Moscow Region) ...

The troops will receive the second brigade set of S-500 no later than in a year.

The S-500 Prometey air defense system is not a replacement, but an addition to the existing S-300 and S-400 systems. The main task of the newest anti-aircraft system will be the destruction of warheads of ballistic missiles in the extra-atmospheric space, as well as promising hypersonic targets flying in the dense layers of the atmosphere.

    against the background of the tense geopolitical situation in the world, it requires urgent measures.

    As I recall, in the 70s of the last century there was a policy of "detente", treaties on the limitation of strategic offensive arms, and so on. In 1991, everything grunted.
    It turns out that now the world is also tense, so submarines, hyper-missiles, and counter-missiles are also needed, and in Syria there is just a lot of everything.
    It turns out that while Russia creates various pieces of iron and shakes them, she lives; if the glands are removed away and to engage in peaceful labor, then everything ends with the ringing of a large copper basin.

      As long as Russia has such "pieces of iron", it can engage in peaceful labor. Without such, there are too many people who want to rob Russia.

        Without such, there are too many people who want to rob Russia.

        There are about 1450 firms owned or controlled by Russian citizens in offshore jurisdictions.
        If Russia is being robbed by its own citizens, why shouldn't others do this?
        The times of Napoleon and Hitler are long gone, swinging a saber or shooting from tanks are almost no longer at war, and Russia will either hobble behind civilized countries, or turn into the kingdom of Lesotho.
