The War Zone: Russian secret electronic warfare complex fell into the hands of Ukrainians


During the counter-offensive in the eastern and southern directions, Ukrainian troops were able to gain access to the secret Khibiny-U electronic warfare complex. So, the RTU 518-PSM "Regatta" container was found, which is part of the electronic warfare complex and is mounted on the wingtips of Su-30SM fighters.


It is assumed that the RTU 518-PSM contains an active antenna for generating interference, while the RTU 518-LSM1 is a passive receiver that detects electromagnetic spectrum emissions from enemy radars.

The War Zone: Russian secret electronic warfare complex fell into the hands of Ukrainians

The complex is designed to interfere with enemy radars or missiles. "Khibiny-U" can indicate the false position of the aircraft in the air. RTU 518-PSM "Regatta", in turn, creates active interference so that enemy missiles cannot be directed at the aircraft.

The authors of the publication believe that this complex is of particular value in industrial intelligence. Surely the find will be interested in the United States.

    The disastrous consequences of the fact that the RF Armed Forces did not take the sky from the enemy, failing to effectively suppress his air defense.

      Until the "space" is taken away from the Americans, air defense will function from the dill, which, with target designation, can be easily carried out with conventional MANPADS.

        So isn't it time to use the electronic warfare / electronic warfare systems that were so publicized on Russian TV?
        Systems, according to statements, capable of completely distorting / replacing the "picture" from space or simply "muffling" data transmission channels.

        And how do the Americans transmit target designation to Ukrainian air defense systems?

          It seems that along the borders of Romania-Poland-Slovakia, Pindo AWACS aircraft are constantly cruising, which give out target designation to the "hidden in passive mode" Ukrovsky air defense.

            In order for a satellite or other aircraft to issue a control center to an anti-aircraft complex, they must be tied into one system. Now the speed of data transfer exceeds 10 minutes, that is, this is not target designation, but at best a preliminary notification

      The disastrous consequences of Russia's indecision to eliminate border crossings and bridges in western Ukraine...

      Well, until the NATO AWACS and electronic intelligence aircraft are shot down, the ambush tactics used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine will justify themselves, but even the all-powerful US satellite constellation cannot figure out all the BUKs on the territory of dill.

      First, the fighter was shot down by allied air defenses. Secondly, more than one Nazis have not been shot down by su35 and su30. And Russia controls the sky, this speaks of how far they fly on the Su-25x. So don't cry beautiful

    In these things, the main thing is not hardware, but software. At one time, the Americans were sold the S-300. Satisfied Americans rubbed their hands, but could not gut the software. As a result, we got a lot of useless iron rubbish at a high price, and the guidance system could not be repeated. In a word, money down the drain. But the Central Design Bureau was able to continue work on new weapons systems with the proceeds.

      In such a case, a system is provided for the destruction of the leading elements of the complex, which can be triggered by a blow, manually from a button, from an increase in temperature-fire or from other initiators.

      At one time, Greece, a NATO member, adopted the S-300. The guidance system on it is yesterday and no one will repeat it, and counteraction has probably been developed

        On the s 300, the guidance system is not yesterday, it is the same as on the petriots. It is possible to resist with 300 without having an average and near air defense radius, but in a complex way, you will not succeed much.

          What kind of rubbish with a complex confrontation ...
          The range of missiles of the S-300 complex, with the exception of the latest modifications from 9m96, requires target illumination, so this already sucks

    Something is hard to believe that this complex could not be blocked from the outside.
    If the plane crashes in 'enemy territory'.
    The tracking Russian satellite will send a command to the complex and this complex will turn into iron.

      I, too, did not believe that the Russian army could run so shamefully under the blows of Banderlogs ...

        And where does she shamefully run from Banderlog? In the Izyum direction, the superiority in manpower of the Nazis is 8 times greater. The Russian troops withdrew to more convenient positions and became on the defensive, there is nothing bad here, the Nazis did not advance further, but lost a huge amount of both equipment and manpower. Their generals did not want to carry out such an offensive, knowing that there would be many losses. Write more such nonsense if you do not understand.

    Well, what is it that he was captured? There is nothing new there. The same boards and other hardware as elsewhere. When the software is hacked, then they will squeal with joy ..
