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:

Army air defense (in progress)
The Army air defense chapter is about 100 pages long therefore I translate step by steps. I decided I start with equipment then will come the structure and organizational and other related topics. So far the listed have been translated. You can find here the translated parts of army air defense.

http://www.mediafire.com/folder/74s425m ... ir_defense

The listed equipment are done:

2K12 Kub (SA-6) family
9K33 Osa (SA-8) family
9K331/32 Tor (SA-15) family
2K12 Krug (SA-4) family
9K37M1, 9K317 (SA-11, SA-17) Buk family
9K81, 9K81M S-300V/VM (SA-12/23)
Strela-1/10 (SA-8/13)
2K22 Tunguska (SA-19)
ZSU-23 Shilka.

MANPADs - under translation
IADS equioment of AAD - upcoming
Anti drone warfare - upcoming

When will be finished the whole army air defense chapter will be packed into a single pdf.

Translation progress
~29,6%

"Roadmap"
Army air defense + threat of drones (in progress)

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