“Guarding Moscow skies”.
The 202nd Anti-Aircraft Rocket Brigade is armed with S-300V missile complexes designed to act as the top tier army air defense system, providing a defense against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircrafts. Its missiles can engage targets out to 100 km and up to altitudes of around 32 km. In both cases the warhead is around 150 kg.
Let’s see another military training of the brigade which took place on February, 2nd.
“Be proud of serving in the 202nd Anti-Aircraft Rocket Brigade!”
The brigade is one of the best anti-aircraft brigades in the Moscow Region.

The 9C15M Obzor 3 is able to detect ballistic and aero dynamical targets and their type. Its detection range is up to 240 km.
The 1L13-3-1 NEBO-SV is designed to detect and track air targets and identify their coordinates. Its antennas are situated on cross-country vehicles which makes it possible to deploy the radar in regions difficult of access. It has a remote control system and can be operated from 500 meter’s range. Its range of detection is up to 350 km.
Officers of the brigade are always on the alert and watch the area 24 hours a day.
The 9K331 Tor-M1 is an all-weather low to medium altitude, short-range surface-to-air missile system designed for engaging airplanes, helicopters, cruise missiles, precision guided munitions, unmanned aerial vehicles and ballistic targets.
It is a mobile and self-propelled system using the 9A330 combat vehicle, which carries a crew of four (one driver, three operators), and acts as an autonomous Transporter, Launcher, and Radar unit.
Arranged in a similar fashion to the previous 9K33 Osa and 9K22 Tunguska, the Tor features a turret with a top mounted target acquisition radar, and frontal tracking radar, with 8 ready to fire missiles stored vertically between the two radars. The target acquisition radar is a 3D F band pulse doppler radar, equipped with a truncated parabolic antenna, and mechanically, later electronically, scanned in azimuth with a 32 degree sector view, and has an average power output of 1.5 kW, which provides a maximum detection range of 25 km. The electronic ‘heart’ of the system is a digital fire control system, which allows detection of up to 48 targets and the tracking of ten at any one time, and integrates IFF functionality; the IFF antenna being mounted above the search radar.
Specifications for the Tor-M1:
Weight: 34 tons
Length: 7.5 m
Width: 3.3 m
Height: 5.1 m
Armament: 9M330, 9M331
Engine: V-12 diesel, 618 kW (830 hp)
Ground clearance: 450 mm
Range: 500 km
Speed: 65 km/h
The S-300V was designed to act as the top tier army air defense system, providing defense against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircrafts.
The number of stars stands for the number of successful missile launches.
The 9C19M2 Imbir has a weight of 44 tons.
The S-300V system was first deployed by the Soviet Union in the city of Zhukovsky, the Moscow Region, in 1984.
The S-300V system is carried on tracked MT-T transporters, which gives it better cross-country mobility than even the S-300Ps on 8×8 wheeled transporters. It is also somewhat more distributed than the S-300P’s.
Judging by their jacket, they must be driver-mechanics.
The S-300V places a greater emphasis on ABM, with the dedicated 9M82 (SA-12B Giant). This missile is larger and only two can be held on each TELAR. It also has a dedicated ABM radar – the 9S19 HIGH SCREEN phased array radar at battalion level. A typical S-300V battalion is made up out of a target detection and designation unit, a guidance radar and up to 6 TELARs. The detection and designation unit consists of the 9S457-1 command post, a 9S15MV or 9S15MT BILL BOARD all-round surveillance radar and 9S19M2 HIGH SCREEN sector surveillance radar. The S-300V uses the 9S32-1 GRILL PAN multi-channel guidance radar. Four types of missile-launcher vehicles can be used with the system:
Transporter erector and radar (TELAR) vehicles, which not only transport the missiles, but also fire and guide them. There are two models: the 9A83-1 TELAR holding four 9M83 GLADIATOR missiles and the 9A82 TELAR holding two 9M82 GIANT missiles.
Launcher/loader vehicles (LLV), which transport the missiles and can reload the TELARs, and also fire missiles under the control of a TELAR. There are two models: the 9A84 LLV holding two 9M83 GLADIATOR missiles and the 9A85 LLV holding two 9M82 GIANT missiles.
S-300V system may be controlled by an upper level command post system 9S52 Polyana-D4 integrating it with Buk missile system into a brigade.
