Now added to the old and the new agreements. The two countries will establish a joint air defense system similar to those already made between Russia and Belarus, and Russia and Armenia.
Through the establishment of a common defense Kazakhstan we have the unique opportunity to acquire anti-aircraft missile systems S-400 "Triumph", which so far is only in service of the Russian Federation and are prohibited for sale over the limit. But the new complexes Kazakh side will not now and not tomorrow. Production resources Concern "Almaz-Antey" currently busy creating a "triumph" for Russia. In turn, the creation of the C-400 for Kazakhstan will begin only after a couple of years. According to various estimates, will have to wait until the 2014-15 year.
During this period of time should be created all the infrastructure, control, communications, etc. unified air defense system. While system uncreated and Kazakhstan has not received "Triumph", it will use anti-aircraft complexes of the previous generation — the S-300PMU2 — the new export version of the SAM.
There are also talks on the supply of Russian army air defense systems. Already planned delivery SAM "Armour-C." Not counting the "shell" Kazakhstan will probably be purchasing short-range "Tor-2ME" and the average "Buk-2ME", created for a specific cover for the air forces of the enemy.
Secretary of Defense RF Anatoly Serdyukov said that the future supply of new anti-missile systems in Kazakhstan and the creation of a unified air defense system with this state brings that day when all of the CSTO countries will be protected by a single anti-air and anti-missile shield.
Recall that in contrast to the more complex of old times, the C-400 can affect not only the target type "airplane" or "winged rocket", And the warheads of intercontinental missiles, which makes the" Triumph "universal system of protection of objects. The defeat of the aerodynamic targets (aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles, etc.) missiles S-400 can be at a range of 2 to 400 km, ballistic (ballistic missile warheads) — from 7 to 60 km. Height hitting target — from 5 meters to 30 km.
If air defense understand everything, then what about missile defense, the question is by whom are defending? The answer is logical: in recent years in the international arena walks a lot of debate about the ability of a strategic missiles from "unreliable countries" such as Iran or North Korea. Go with this U.S. and Europe make its missile defense system located in Europe. But Kazakhstan is geographically closer to the same Iran than Poland or the Czech Republic. Because the fact of placing the Kazakhs in their own areas of "universal" missile looks correct and logical way.
As for cooperation between Russia and Kazakhstan specifically, not with the Euro-American side, then the solution may lie in the fact that our homeland so far has not received from the creators of Euro-Atlantic missile defense system that guarantees not directed towards Russia.
Also, there is a perception that our homeland, supporting the case with China, can not participate in the strategic military projects states with more complex cases with China.
In favor of the idea of the guarantees for the Euro-Atlantic system according to a statement the deputy director of the Department of Foreign Affairs disk imaging and printing RF V. Kozin. It ranges in that the planned 2015 deployment of hundreds of missiles 9 is a measure of the mass of the alleged defense of promising Iranian and North Korean missiles. At the same time, he saw Kozin, South American experts at openly claim that the number of such interceptor missiles will be enough for the defense of the Russian Federation, and this is cause for hesitation in fairness reasons the creators of Euro-Atlantic missile defense.
Well, as long as there are disputes about the causes of missile defense in one way or another country, military cooperation RF and Kazakhstan last. On the supply side of the Kazakh new modernized T-90S tanks of speech does not go, said Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Federation Vladimir Gerasimov, but on other fronts deliveries are made. So, for example, a parade on August 30 in Astana, in the middle of other equipment were shown machines BMPT tank support "frame", also known by the nickname "The Terminator," flamethrower system TOS-1A "sun" and a number of other samples.
In addition to the supply of technology itself and our homeland Kazakhstan intensively cooperate in the field of communication at various levels for the troops.
