The missile has a range of 200 km, while the reason of the People’s Liberation Army deployed opposite Taiwan, is to leap in Taiwan Kuan Jin missile 180 kilometers of the Taiwan Straits will be shot down immediately.
reported that the deployment of the majority of Taiwan people to panic, although it also pointed out that the Taiwan military leaders deployed along the Taiwan Strait, “Patriot” anti-aircraft missiles. It is noteworthy that the “Patriot” missiles with a range of only 70 kilometers, and suppression of Taiwan also lacks an S-300 missiles, radar and electronic countermeasures.
Worse, the PLA has started two years ago along the southern coast (opposite Taiwan) to upgrade its air defense missile systems, from the existing S-300PMU1 and S-300PMU2 missile system to upgrade to S- 300PMU3 missiles (the missile has been given a lot of improvements, so has been renamed S-400 missiles).
reported, S-300/400 roughly equivalent to the U.S. missile system “Patriot” air defense missile system. The early 1980s when the advent of this missile was named NATO SA-10 missiles. Since that time has come, this missile has been a lot of improvements.
The missile weighs 1.8 tons, 8.4 meters, diameter 51 cm, a range of about 200 kilometers (S-400 version has a missile with a range of 400 km), can hit targets up to 32 km. Missiles capable of carrying 145 kg warhead. The goal of the search radar to search for targets within 700 km.
reports, S-400 missile system’s range is the “Patriot” a range of more than five times the weight of the latter two times, allegedly also able to detect stealth aircraft. Moreover, S-400 anti-missile missile also has the ability, but only for shorter range ballistic missile (3,500 km). This means it can hit one second speed of about 5,000 meters incoming warhead (missile’s range and greater, the higher its re-entry speed).
reports, S-400 missile system actually has two missiles, one missile smaller, shorter range (120 km). Although S-300/400 combat missile system will not experience, but the U.S. intelligence community that the related emission tests have shown that a powerful air defense weapon system. However, its ability in the end how, in the absence of acceptance before the real test is still unknown. In any case, Taiwan fighter pilots do not want to be the first to eat crab. (Spring)
