Russia used new S-400 missiles with active homing heads in the Northern Military District zone

The Russian military used the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system in the area of ​​a special military operation using anti-aircraft guided missiles with active homing heads. About it TASS said a source close to the Russian Ministry of Defense. According to him, the use of the S-400 occurred in tandem with the A-50 long-range radar detection aircraft.

During a special military operation in Ukraine, Russia used the S-400 Triumph air defense system in tandem with the A-50 early warning aircraft. The S-400 air defense system used anti-aircraft guided missiles with active homing heads. All this ensured the success of using the system against enemy aviation

– said the source of the agency.

At the same time, another interlocutor of the publication noted that the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system was fired at its maximum range at targets that at the time of destruction were at an altitude of approximately one thousand meters. In this case, new warheads of anti-aircraft guided missiles were used.

Let us recall that on October 25, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the Russian Armed Forces had acquired anti-aircraft missile systems that shot down 24 Ukrainian aircraft in five days. Even then, military experts began to say that this became possible thanks to the effective combination of the S-400 missile system and the A-50 long-range radar detection aircraft.

Experts explain that such a tandem contributes to the clear and effective execution of combat missions. At the same time, attention is focused on the fact that the troops received a modernized version of the aircraft - the A-50U. Now the flying machine is capable of detecting new types of enemy objects and tracking a larger number of targets.

        There is a competition with NATO specialists, which is why decisions are made quickly by the Armed Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the actions of the Russian air defense. The new use of the S-400 significantly thinned out the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, but quickly responded (now they fly with overlapping courses and altitudes, and other tricks, diverting anti-aircraft missiles in the wrong directions, etc.). There is a struggle in military development, which is a significant experience for the future for the RF Armed Forces.

          Airplanes are not phantoms, and missiles will not go in the wrong direction following these phantoms. there is no one to follow there. The missile is simply launched with the help of the A-50, according to its target designation, into the area of ​​the detected target and there the homing head captures this target.
          To evade, you need to know the angle and at least the approximate distance to the missile. If you do not have the appropriate equipment on board or you are not warned from the outside about a missile on your board, then that’s it. Apparently the rocket is simply not seen by the pilot on board and there are no clues from the ground about the rocket. All. And to continuously perform anti-missile maneuvers during the flight is something out of fairy tales.
