8 Tour To Once Powerful Air Defence Station

Tour To Once Powerful Air Defence Station

Posted on April 9, 2012 by team

This is once powerful and the only air defence station, S-25.

April, 8th was the day of air defence, so we congratulate all those who are responsible for peaceful skies over our heads.

And now let us have a short excursion over the object.

Local surrealistic landscape

Each regiment included a military unit with pads and other rocket infrastructure, and 1,5-4 km away was a radio locator of a sector looking radar indexed as B-200. Each station, having 20 shooting canals, had to provide simaltaneous observation over 20 targets and aim at them up to 20 missiles.

B-200 was located in a reinforced concrete construction, half underground. It could withstand a hit of 1000-kg HE-bomb.

Two target localization antennas and four antennas of command transmission were close to the construction on the concrete site.

Today the centre has a pity look and is not so interesting except the vehicles that served here.

Let’s move to the former combat part of the station. Recently they have built a fence here and people are building country houses over the territory.

Locator ST-68UM (5N59) is intended for detection, identification and tracking of air targets including strategic cruise missiles of ALCM type.

The vehicle behind is the radar station 39N6 “KASTA-2-2″ – a mobile solid-state automated station providing detection, tracking of range, course and height of the flight, it also tracks air objects providing route characteristics (aircrafts, helicopters, remotely piloted vehicles and cruise missiles).

Freshly-painted universal stationary tower 8142KM.

Lifting capacity of the tower winches – 25 tons

Looks unearthly

The vehicles are not guarded

Old barbed wire fence does not count…

Radio locator of illumination and guidance 30N6

Chkalov here is the only guard

    Again, great shots. Were all the guards drunk and passed out?

    Those are big-ass SAMS loaded with propellent and HE. All it takes is a terror group to grab one.

    NATO will now remove this from their secondary target list. NATA thanks you, ER.

      NATO can have every SAM unit in Russia on any of their “lists”. It wont do any good when you reach the “target area” only to find the battery has packed up and moved away.

    Russia has the most nuclear devices on earth.

    They manufacture the worlds military surplus store of weapons.

    I do not see Russia having a problem defending her resources.

    Does do not look like S-25 launchers but first gen S-300 launchers. If i Remember correctly S-25 and S-75 used a rail system and not a cold launch canister system.

    Where is this place? Coordinates?

    I have to go to Russia someday and visit some of these places before I die. If I don’t then I will feel that part of my life was wasted.
