History of air defense systems

Postby molnibalage » Mon 9 Apr 2018 10:47

In Hungarian I wrote a long book with some other guys about military aviation, SAMs and related topics.

I started to translate to English the book, first the history and capabilities of Soviet-Russian SAMs. Here are the translated parts:

Main download directory.

S-200 Angara, Vega, Dubna (SA-5)

S-300, S-400 (SA-10, SA-20)

HAWK

Patriot (NEW)

F-117 vs S-125 (NEW)
http://www.mediafire.com/folder/zkcw69g ... 7_vs_S-125

XXI. century (NEW)
http://www.mediafire.com/folder/cdpv256 ... I._century

Translation progress
~22.5%

"Roadmap"
Army air defence + threat of drones (in progress, ~100 pages, target date is at the end of the year)

The physics background and other things (beams, sidelobes, target discrimination within the lobe, guidance types, leading types, missile trajectory, explanation of different tpype of engagement zone, etc) are explained in other sections. Because of this maybe won't be fully understandable everyting but hopefully they are still worth reading.

After finishing the Soviet-Russian SAMs the automatized command posts will be translated, then HAWK and Patriot.

First post is updated with history of S-200 (SA-5).
A fixed version of S-75 is uploaded, the table with missile variants had some typing errors.
Next will be history of IADS and GCI.
