The S-300 system was developed to defend against aircraft and cruise missiles for the Soviet Air Defence Forces. Subsequent variations were developed to intercept ballistic missiles.The S-300 system was first deployed by the Soviet Union in 1979, designed for the air defence of large industrial and administrative facilities, military bases and control of airspace against enemy strike aircraft. The system is fully automated, though manual observation and operation are also possible.WEB,weblink Комплекс С-300Ð’ впервые поразил мишени-имитаторы ОТБР, Редактор,, 27 November 2015,weblink" title="">weblink 8 December 2015, no, Components may be near the central command post, or as distant as 40 km.

Variations and upgrades

Serial production started in 1975. The tests have been completed in 1978 (P) and 1983 (V + 1987 for anti-ballistic V).WEB,weblink Система С-300П,, 1 April 2015,weblink" title="">weblink 14 September 2013, no, Numerous versions have since emerged with different missiles, improved radars, better resistance to countermeasures, longer range and better capability against short-range ballistic missiles or targets flying at very low altitude. There are currently three main variations.

Land-based S-300P (SA-10)

(File:Slovak S-300.jpg|thumb|left|Slovak S-300P-TELs, ready to launch)The {{Anchor|S-300P|P}}S-300P (transliterated from Russian С-300П, NATO reporting name SA-10 Grumble) is the original version of the S-300 system which became operational in 1978.WEB,weblink Almaz/Antei Concern of Air Defence S-300P (NATO SA-10 'Grumble') family of low to high-altitude surface-to-air missile systems, 4 August 2008, 16 January 2008, Jane's, In 1987, over 80 of these sites were active, mainly in the area around Moscow. The P suffix stand for PVO-Strany (country air defence system). An S-300PT unit consists of a 36D6 (NATO reporting name TIN SHIELD) surveillance radar, a 30N6 (FLAP LID) fire control system and 5P85-1 launch vehicles. The 5P85-1 vehicle is a semi-trailer truck. Usually a 76N6 (CLAM SHELL) low altitude detection radar is also a part of the unit.WEB,weblink Encyclopedia Astronautica – "S-300", 5 September 2008, yes,weblink" title="">weblink 30 April 2010, dmy-all, This system broke substantial new ground, including the use of a passive electronically scanned array radar and multiple engagements on the same Fire-control system (FCS). Nevertheless, it had some limitations. It took over one hour to set up this semi-mobile system for firing and the hot vertical launch method employed scorched the TEL.(File:9S32 engagement radar -2.jpg|thumb|9S32 engagement radar)It was originally intended to fit the Track Via Missile (TVM) guidance system onto this model. However, the TVM system had problems tracking targets below 500 m. Rather than accept the limitation, the Soviets decided that the tracking of low altitude targets was a must and decided to use a pure command-guidance system until the TVM head was ready. This allowed the minimum engagement altitude to be set at 25 m.Improvements to the S-300P have resulted in several major sub-versions for both the internal and the export market. The S-300PT-1 and S-300PT-1A (SA-10b/c) are incremental upgrades of the original S300PT system. They introduce the 5V55KD missile and the cold launch method thereafter employed. Time to readiness was reduced to 30 minutes and trajectory optimizations allowed the 5V55KD to reach a range of 75 km.File:Sa-10c b.jpg|thumb|left|Two S-300-PM missile TEL and a 'Flap Lid' radar]]The {{Anchor|S-300PS|S-300PM|PS|PM}}S-300PS/S-300PM (Russian С-300ПC/С-300ПМ, NATO reporting name SA-10d/e) was introduced in 1985 and is the only version thought to have been fitted with a nuclear warhead. This model saw the introduction of the modern TEL and mobile radar and command-post vehicles that were all based on the MAZ-7910 8 Ã— 8 truck. This model also featured the new 5V55R missiles which increased maximum engagement range to {{convert|90|km|mi|abbr=on}} and introduced a terminal semi-active radar homing (SARH) guidance mode. The surveillance radar of these systems was designated 30N6. Also introduced with this version was the distinction between self-propelled and towed TELs. The towed TEL is designated 5P85T. Mobile TELs were the 5P85S and 5P85D. The 5P85D was a "slave" TEL, being controlled by a 5P85S "master" TEL. The "master" TEL is identifiable thanks to the large equipment container behind the cabin; in the "slave" TEL this area is not enclosed and is used for cable or spare tyre storage.The next modernisation, called the {{Anchor|S-300PMU|PMU}}S-300PMU (Russian С-300ПМУ, US DoD designation SA-10f) was introduced in 1992 for the export market and featured the upgraded 5V55U missile which still utilised the intermediate SARH terminal guidance method and smaller warhead of the 5V55R but increased the engagement envelope to give this missile roughly the same range and altitude capabilities as the newer 48N6 missile (max. range 150 km/93 mi). The radars were also upgraded, with the surveillance radar for the S-300PMU being designated 64N6 (BIG BIRD) and the illumination and guidance radar being designated 30N6-1 in the GRAU index.{{citation needed|date=July 2010|reason=Dead link removed}}

(File:S-300PMU2 64N6E2.jpg|thumb|S-300PMU-2 64N6E2 acquisition radar (part of 83M6E2 command post))The {{Anchor|S-300PMU-1|PMU-1}}S-300PMU-1 (, US DoD designation SA-20A, NATO reporting name SA-20 Gargoyle) was also introduced in 1993 with the new and larger 48N6 missiles for the first time in a land-based system and introduced all the same performance improvements from the S300FM version including the increased speed, range, TVM guidance and ABM capability.WEB,weblink S-300/Favorit (SA-10 'Grumble'/SA-20 'Gargoyle'), 4 August 2008, 8 February 2008, Jane's, S-300 PMU2 SA-20B Gargoyle B Surface-to-Air missile {{webarchive |url= |date=22 May 2013 }} The warhead is slightly smaller than the naval version at {{convert|143|kg|lb|abbr=on}}. This version also saw the introduction of the new and more capable 30N6E TOMB STONE radar.The S-300PMU-1 was introduced in 1993 and for the first time introduces several different kinds of missiles in a single system. In addition to the 5V55R and 48N6E missiles the S-300PMU-1 can utilise two new missiles, the 9M96E1 and 9M96E2. Both are significantly smaller than the previous missiles at {{convert|330|and|420|kg|lb|abbr=on}} respectively, and carry smaller {{convert|24|kg|lb|abbr=on}} warhead. The 9M96E1 has an engagement range of {{convert|1|–|40|km|mi|abbr=on|sigfig=2}} and the 9M96E2 of {{convert|1|–|120|km|mi|abbr=on|sigfig=2}}. They are still carried 4 per TEL. Rather than just relying on aerodynamic fins for manoeuvring, they use a gas-dynamic system which allows them to have an excellent probability of kill (Pk) despite the much smaller warhead. The Pk is estimated at 0.7 against a tactical ballistic missile for either missile. The S-300PMU-1 typically uses the 83M6E command and control system, although it is also compatible with the older Baikal-1E and Senezh-M1E CCS command and control systems. The 83M6E system incorporates the 64N6E (BIG BIRD) surveillance/detection radar. The fire control/illumination and guidance radar used is the 30N6E(1), optionally matched with a 76N6 low altitude detection radar and a 96L6E all altitude detection radar. The 83M6E command and control system can control up to 12 TELs, both the self-propelled 5P85SE vehicle and the 5P85TE towed launchers. Generally support vehicles are also included, such as the 40V6M tow vehicle, intended for lifting of the antenna post.{{citation needed|date=July 2010|reason=Dead link removed}}China is building its own version of the S-300PMU-1, called HQ-10.WEB,weblink MissileThreat – "Hongqi-10 (HQ-10)", 5 September 2008, yes,weblink" title="">weblink 5 April 2013, dmy-all, {{better source|date=September 2018}}(File:S-300PMU2 complex.jpg|thumb|S-300PMU-2 vehicles.

This system is apparently capable against not just short range ballistic missiles, but now also medium range ballistic missiles. It uses the 83M6E2 command and control system, consisting of the 54K6E2 command post vehicle and the 64N6E2 surveillance/detection radar. It employs the 30N6E2 fire control/illumination and guidance radar. Like the S-300PMU-1, 12 TELs can be controlled, with any mix of 5P85SE2 self-propelled and 5P85TE2 trailer launchers.

{{Anchor|S-300F|F|Rif}} Sea-based S-300F (SA-N-6)

File:SA-N-6 SAM launchers with radar.JPEG|thumb|right|upright|Close up view of SA-N-6 launchers on Marshal Ustinov.]]The S-300F Fort (Russian С-300Ф Форт, DoD designation SA-N-6, F suffix for Flot, Russian for fleet) was introduced in 1984 as the original ship-based (naval) version of the S-300P system developed by Altair with the new 5V55RM missile with range extended to {{convert|7|–|90|km|mi nmi|abbr=on|sigfig=2}} and maximum target speed up to Mach 4 while engagement altitude was reduced to {{convert|25|–|25,000|m|ft|abbr=on}}. The naval version utilises the TOP SAIL or TOP STEER, TOP PAIR and 3R41 Volna (TOP DOME) radar and utilises command guidance with a terminal semi-active radar homing (SARH) mode. Its first installation and sea trials were on a Kara class cruiser and it is also installed on Slava class cruisers and Kirov class battlecruisers. It is stored in eight (Slava) or twelve (Kirov) 8-missile rotary launchers below decks. The export version of this system is known as Rif (Russian Риф – reef). The NATO name, found also in colloquial use, is "Grumble".

{{Anchor|S-300FM|FM|SA-N-20}} Sea-based S-300FM (SA-N-20)

The S-300FM Fort-M (Russian С-300ФМ, DoD designation SA-N-20) is another naval version of the system, installed only on the Kirov-class cruiser {{ship|Russian battlecruiser|Pyotr Velikiy||2}}, and introduced the new 48N6 missile. It was introduced in 1990 and increased missile speed to approximately Mach 6 for a maximum target engagement speed of up to Mach 8.5, increased the warhead size to {{convert|150|kg|lb|abbr=on}} and increased the engagement range yet again to {{convert|5|–|150|km|mi|abbr=on|sigfig=2}} as well as opening the altitude envelope to {{convert|10|-|27|km|mi|abbr=on}}. The new missiles also introduced the ultimate track-via-missile guidance method and brought with it the ability to intercept short-range ballistic missiles. This system makes use of the TOMB STONE MOD rather than TOP DOME radar. The export version is called the Rif-M. Two Rif-M systems were purchased by China in 2002 and installed on the Type 051C air-defence guided missile destroyers.Both naval versions are believed to include a secondary infrared terminal seeker, similar to the newer US Standard missile system, probably to reduce the system's vulnerability to saturation. This also allows the missile to engage contacts over the radar horizon, such as warships or sea-skimming anti-ship missiles.

S-300V (SA-12)

The V suffix stands for Voyska (ground forces). It was designed to form the top tier army air defence system, providing a defence against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircraft, replacing the SA-4 Ganef. The "GLADIATOR" missiles have a maximum engagement range of around {{convert|75|km|mi|abbr=on}} while the "GIANT" missiles can engage targets out to {{convert|100|km|mi|abbr=on}} and up to altitudes of around {{convert|32|km|mi|abbr=on}}. In both cases the warhead is around {{convert|150|kg|lb|abbr=on}}.Radar modes are different and it requires the use of all methods of jamming, while S-300V system works completely passive mode.While it was created from the same project, hence the common S-300 designation, different priorities resulted in a design quite different from the other versions. The S-300V system is carried on tracked MT-T transporters, which gives it better cross-country mobility than even the S-300Ps on 8 Ã— 8 wheeled transporters. It is also somewhat more distributed than the S-300P's. For example, while both have mechanically-scanning radar for target acquisition (9S15 BILL BOARD A), the battery level 9S32 GRILL PAN has an autonomous search ability and SARH delegated to illumination radar on TELARs. The early 30N6 FLAP LID on the S-300P handles tracking and illumination, but is not equipped with an autonomous search capability (later upgraded). 9S15 can simultaneously carry out an active search for goals (3 coordinates) and passive (2 position).Chance to destroy a target by using single missile an interceptor (The official source)WEB,weblink Ракетный комплекс С-300Ð’4 пополнит ВС России, Российская газета, 27 November 2015,weblink" title="">weblink 8 December 2015, no, Adopted in service in 1983 (1983 just using the missile 9M83), fully accepted in 1988.WEB,weblink C- 300Ð’,, 27 November 2015,weblink" title="">weblink 20 January 2016, no, 9M83 /Chance/ MGM-52 Lance.......... 0,5-0,659M82 /Chance/ MGM-31 Pershing...... 0,4-0,69M83 /Chance/ aircraft........................ 0,7-0,99M82 /Chance/ SRAM rocket.............. 0,5-0,7(File:Oboronexpo2014part2-27.jpg|thumb|SA-12 high altitude surface-to-air missile systems)The S-300V places a greater emphasis on the ABM, with the dedicated 9M82 (SA-12B Giant) Anti-Ballistic missile.

The system is available abroad (1996) The S-300VM (Antey 2500) is an upgrade to the S-300V. It consists of a new command post vehicle, the 9S457ME and a selection of new radars. These consist of the 9S15M2, 9S15MT2E and 9S15MV2E all-round surveillance radars, and the 9S19ME sector surveillance radar. The upgraded guidance radar has the Grau index 9S32ME. The system can still employ up to six TELARs, the 9A84ME launchers (up to 4 × 9M83ME missile) and up to 6 launcher/loader vehicles assigned to each launcher (2 × 9M83ME missile each). An upgraded version, dubbed S-300V4 will be delivered to the Russian army in 2011.WEB,weblink Russian army to receive advanced weaponry in 2011 | Defense | RIA Novosti,, 28 February 2011, 14 November 2011,weblink" title="">weblink 16 November 2011, no, The Antey-2500 complex is the export version developed separately from the S-300 family and has been exported to Venezuela for an estimated export price of 1 billion dollars.

S-400 (SA-21)

The S-400 Triumf (Russian С-400 «Триумф», formerly known as the S-300PMU-3/С-300ПМУ-3, NATO reporting name SA-21 Growler) was introduced in 1999 and features a new, much larger missile with 2 per TEL. The new complex is totally different. The project has been encountering delays since its original announcement and deployment has only begun on a small scale in 2006. With an engagement range of up to {{convert|400|km|mi|abbr=on}}, depending on the missile variant used, and specifically designed to counter stealth, it is by far the most advanced version incorporating the ability to survive PGM threats and counter advanced jammers by using automatic frequency hopping.WEB, Kopp, Dr. Carlo, Almaz-Antey 40R6 / S-400 Triumf Self Propelled Air Defence System / SA-21 Самоходный Зенитный Ракетный Комплекс 40Р6 / С-400 "Триумф",weblink AusAirPower, Carlo Kopp Updated February 2010 Updated May, June 2011 Updated April 2012, May 2009, 13 July 2015,weblink" title="">weblink 25 June 2015, no,


{{Cleanup|reason=the section is full of incomplete and run-on sentences.|date=March 2017}}An important quality of all complexes of the family of S-300 is the ability to work in various combinations within a single modification and within the same complex, between the modifications (limited), as well as through a variety of mobile superior command posts to line up in a battery of any composition, quantity, modifications, location and so on including the introduction of other air defence systems into a common battery. the System for the defence of the major industrial and administrative objects, military bases and control points from the shock means of air-space attack of the enemy. Capable of hitting ballistic and aerodynamic targets. Became the first multi-channel anti-aircraft missile system, is able to accompany each system (ADMS) to 6 goals and build them up to 12 missiles. When creating funds management (FM), consisting of paragraph combat control and radar detection, solved the problem of automatic track initiation of up to one hundred goals and effective management divisions, located at a distance of 30–40 km from the (FM).For the first time established a system with full automation of combat operation. All tasks—detection, tracking, target setting is considered, target designation, development of target designation, target acquisition, maintenance, capture, tracking and missile guidance, assessment of results of firing system capable of dealing automatically with the help of digital computing facilities. The operator functions are to control over the work of funds and implementation of the launch of rockets. In a complex environment, you can manually intervene in the course of combat operation. None of the previous systems possessed these qualities. Vertical launch missiles provided bombardment of targets flying from any direction without the reversal of the launcher in the direction of the shooting.WEB

  • THE S-300V – first mobile universal system of missile and anti-aircraft defense.
Missiles are guided by the 30N6 FLAP LID or naval 3R41 Volna (TOP DOME) radar using command guidance with terminal semi-active radar homing. Later versions use the 30N6 FLAP LID B or TOMB STONE radar to guide the missiles via command guidance/seeker-aided ground guidance (SAGG). SAGG is similar to the Patriot's TVM guidance scheme. The earlier 30N6 FLAP LID A can guide up to four missiles at a time to up to four targets, and can track up to 24 targets at once. The 30N6E FLAP LID B can guide up to two missiles per target to up to six targets simultaneously. Targets flying at up to Mach 2.5 can be successfully engaged or around Mach 8.5 for later models. One missile can be launched every three seconds. The mobile control centre is able to manage up to 12 TELs simultaneously.The original warhead weighed {{convert|100|kg|lb|abbr=on}}, intermediate warheads weighed {{convert|133|kg|lb|abbr=on}} and the latest warhead weighs {{convert|143|kg|lb|abbr=on}}. All are equipped with a proximity fuse and contact fuse. The missiles themselves weigh between {{convert|1,450|and|1,800|kg|lb|abbr=on}}. Missiles are catapulted clear of the launching tubes before their rocket motor fires, and can accelerate at up to 100 g (1 km/s²). They launch straight upwards and then tip over towards their target, removing the need to aim the missiles before launch. The missiles are steered with a combination of control fins and through thrust vectoring vanes. The sections below give exact specifications of the radar and missiles in the different S-300 versions. Since the S-300PM most vehicles are interchangeable across variations.


The 30N6 FLAP LID A is mounted on a small trailer. The 64N6 BIG BIRD is mounted on a large trailer along with a generator and typically towed with the now familiar 8-wheeled truck. The 76N6 CLAM SHELL (5N66MWEB,weblink 76N6 Clam Shell Low Altitude Acquisition Radar / 5N66/5N66M/76N6/76N6E/40V6M/MD Clam Shell, Dr Carlo Kopp, PEng,, 27 November 2015,weblink" title="">weblink 8 December 2015, yes, dmy-all, etc.) is mounted on a large trailer with a mast which is between {{convert|24|and|39|m|ft|abbr=on}} tall. Usually is used with a mast. Target detection range of 90 km if altitude of the target of 500 meters above the ground (with a mast).The original S-300P utilises a combination of the 5N66M continuous-wave radar Doppler radar for target acquisition and the 30N6 FLAP LID A I/J-band phased array digitally steered tracking and engagement radar. Both are mounted on trailers. In addition there is a trailer-mounted command centre and up to twelve trailer-mounted erector/launchers with four missiles each. The S-300PS/PM is similar but uses an upgraded 30N6 tracking and engagement radar with the command post integrated and has truck-mounted TELs.If employed in an anti-ballistic missile or anti-cruise missile role, the 64N6 BIG BIRD E/F-band radar would also be included with the battery. It is capable of detecting ballistic missile class targets up to {{convert|1000|km|mi|abbr=on}} away travelling at up to {{convert|10000|km/h|abbr=on}} and cruise missile class targets up to {{convert|300|km|mi|abbr=on}} away. It also employs electronic beam steering and performs a scan once every twelve seconds.The 36D6 TIN SHIELD radar can also be used to augment the S-300 system to provide earlier target detection than the FLAP LID radar allows. It can detect a missile-sized target flying at an altitude of {{convert|60|m}} at least {{convert|20|km|mi|abbr=on}} away, at an altitude of {{convert|100|m|abbr=on}} at least {{convert|30|km|mi|abbr=on}} away, and at high altitude up to {{convert|175|km|mi|abbr=on}} away. In addition a 64N6 BIG BIRD E/F band target acquisition radar can be used which has a maximum detection range of {{convert|300|km|mi|abbr=on}}.The S-300 FC Radar Flap Lid can be mounted on a standard pylon.{| class="wikitable"|+ Surveillance radar!
