No, it is not. This is a total misconception...
S-300V is a totally different animal regardless of "300" in its designation.
So far all S-300P variants used a ESA type FCR and SAGG guidance, each missile battery has its own fire control radar. Each missile battery has its own low level 360 deg. search radar and only the command battery has the 360 deg. long range Big Bird radar.
But are exceptions in both ways.
Some exported variant where some countries did not bougth the command battery because it is pointless to have for a single S-300PMU, such as Slovakia. A single S-300PMU (Volhov-M6M, 5V55R 75 km range) missile battery therefore has ST-68U radar for 360 med-hi alt. search.
Some countries even bougth command battery also bougth 360 med-hi alt search radar for each missile battery besides the command battery Big Birt, for ex. Vietnam later bougth the 96L6E VVO (Cheese Board) radars for missile batteries.
In the doc. I made and linked you can see S-300V had totally different structure.
The 9S32 Grill Pan radar provides MCU/MCG for missiles which requires terminal phase CW target illumination. S-300V is rather close to AEGIS which also uses CW target illumination in terminal phase. This means no matter how many CW illuminatiors you have (PU tracked vehicles) without the Grill Pan the battery is not operational. Even each battery has its own Grill Pan the whole brigade also has a long range 360 deg search radar, but one of ABM search (like operates in sector search mode because in a NATO vs WPACT was all BM were arrived for west) and one against airplanes.
This is AEGIS, similar conception. Are ESA type radar for target tracking but for terminal target illumination SPG-62 are used, they are the CW target illuminators what you can see also in '70s and '80s Ticonderoga CGs.https://defencyclopedia.files.wordpress ... aphic1.png
BTW didn't you notice S-300V has totally different missiles than any S-300P variants and for ABM role has a different missiles while S-300P - if you nelgect the backward compatibiliy - uses only a single type of missiles against both type of targets?
I' writing in HUN about a 600 page long stuff about military aviation and SAMs. Here is just a fraction about homeland SAMs to illustrate how deeps is the stuff even lots of thigs are not mentionted.. Maybe one day I translate into ENG to help better understaning things to prevent urban legends and misinformations.http://www.mediafire.com/file/dzqggjolh1t8m8a/SAMs.pdf
