S300/S400 --- tactical use/deployment for area-level AD?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any info on how these might have been deployed/used tactically?


E.g., would they have been positioned on a hill xx km behind the front, advancing with the front as it moves along? Or would they have only been used to defend fixed installations such as airfields and HQ's?

So, not turning up anything on this ...


But I did find the following for 80's/90's area AD:



- FEBA: Coverage of regimental weapons (engaged regiments): SA-6

- 0-15 km from FEBA: Coverage of divisional weapons: SA-6

- 15-30 km from FEBA: SA-6, protecting SA-4

- 40-60 km from FEBA: SA-4

- 50-100 km from FEBA: SA-4, protecting SA-2


From the FANTASTIC Isby book!


Maybe this could be a framework to use, switching out with more modern technologies?
