What is the new Russian anti-missile system "Abakan" capable of?

At the recent Dubai Airshow 2021 International Air Show, Russia distinguished itself not only with its latest fifth-generation light fighter Su-75 Checkmate. Particular attention of foreign "gunsmiths" was also attracted by the first special anti-aircraft missile system to combat modern and advanced non-strategic ballistic missiles SAM 98R6E "Abakan".

The characteristics of the novelty look very impressive, especially when compared with the indicators of the American Patriot complex, which has pretty much “tarnished” its reputation.

Our "Abakan" is able to integrate into any air defense / missile defense system. The maximum height of targets that the new Russian air defense system “reaches” reaches 30 km. The range of destruction is from 12 to 45 km at a target speed of up to 4800 m/s.

Two fractions of fragments - light and heavy, with a directed expansion at an angle of 60 degrees, provide a sixfold increase in the effectiveness of the warhead. Finally, the Abakan air defense system is put on alert in less than three minutes, and from the march in less than 15.

All of the above makes our new product extremely attractive to foreign buyers. At the same time, it was not by chance that it was demonstrated in Dubai. After all, it is the countries of the Middle East, at the borders of which hotbeds of tension have been “smoldering” for many years, that can become the main importers of Russian air defense systems.

    Wah. Since the layout of ShakhiMat is equated to super-Abakan, and compared with the small Patriot 40 years ago ....

    then screw it up!

    ... Russia distinguished itself not only with its latest fifth-generation light fighter Su-75 "Checkmate" ....

    - let's be blunt - the concept and layout are not yet the latest light fighter. Years will pass between these dates. And therefore, "GOP" is still too early to speak.

      Let's be realistic. Su-75 is an elementary rearrangement of the Su-57.
      Almost all R & D, development of components have already been done in the course of the Su-57 project.

    - Or maybe - just talk about ... about ... about the Abakan assault rifles - AN-94 (aka Nikonov’s assault rifle) ...
    - Cool machine !!! - True - not very new (judging by the time the production began) ... Personally, I have had occasion to shoot from it more than once ... - almost the same as the Kalashnikov assault rifle (of any modification) - is in no way inferior ...
    - Well, and the anti-missile system ... "Abakan" - it was better to drive India ...
    - Although this is already problematic ... - the Indians began to "turn up their noses" very strongly in relation to Russian weapons ... - Alas ...

      There is a contract for 5 regimental sets of C 400. Deliveries began before the new year.
      And after Putin's visit to India, there will be no problems at all. Another geopolitical reality began.
