‘F-35 destroys Russia’s S-400’ is not mission impossible anymore - New Claim

Science & Tech A- A A+

Turkey unveils an unexpected flaw in the Russian S-400 missile system, Eurasia Diary reports citing BulgarianMilitary.com.

The Russian S-400 air defense system can indeed track targets at distances up to 600 kilometers (under the condition of a suitable terrain – approx.ed.).

However, under the condition that the target will be at an altitude of 20 kilometers. When the target is located below 5 kilometers, the efficiency drops several times, allowing, among other things, to attack the S-400 positional area.

One of the S-400 positioning areas in Turkey covers most of the Turkish territory and airspace, however, if the target is at an altitude of 5 kilometers, its detection efficiency drops by 30-40%.

When an air target is located at an altitude of 1 kilometer, the effective range of its detection and destruction is only 70-180 kilometers (depending on the terrain – approx. Ed.), And when the target is at an altitude of less than one kilometer, we are talking about defeat aerodynamic targets only a few tens of kilometers away.
