The most militant SAM: S-75

Country: USSR
Entered service in 1957
Missile Type: 13D
The largest range of defeats the purpose of: 29-34 km
Target speed: 1500 km / h

John McCain, who lost the last presidential election in the United States Barack Obama, is known as an outspoken critic of Russian internal and external policies. It's entirely possible that one of the explanations are so intransigent position of Senator lies in the achievements of Russian designers half a century ago. October 23, 1967 in the bombing of Hanoi's plane was shot down by the young pilot, who comes from a family of admirals, John McCain. His "Phantom" has got anti-aircraft guided missile system S-75. Russian antiaircraft blade had already brought a lot of problems the Yankees and their allies. First "pen test" was accomplished in China in 1959, when the local air defense with "Soviet comrades" interrupted flight altitude Taiwanese spy, made on the basis of the English bombers Canberra. Hopes that the reddish defense will not handle more advanced air scout — Lockheed U-2 — also no luck was realized. One of them was shot down by the C-75 over the Urals in 1961, and another — a year later over Cuba. On account of the famous anti-aircraft missiles made in the ICD "Torch", a huge number of other affected targets in various conflicts from the Far and Near East to the Caribbean, and most complex of the S-75 was destined to have a long life in various versions. Can not afraid to say that this SAM shot to fame in the world of the vserasprostranennogo of all air defense systems of this type.

The most sverhtehnologichny missile defense system: The system Aegis («Aegis")

SM-3 missile
Country: United States
First start: 2001
Length: 6.55 m
Steps: 3
Range: 500 km
The height of the affected area: 250 km

The main element of the ship's combat functional management information systems, radar AN / SPY with 4 flat PAR 4 MW. On arms "Aegis" are SM-2 missiles and SM-3 (the latter with the ability to intercept ballistic missiles) with a kinetic or fragmentation warhead. SM-3 is constantly modified, and the model has already declared Block IIA, which would be capable of intercepting ICBMs. February 21, 2008 SM-3 missile was launched from the cruiser «Lake Erie» quiet ocean and being amazed at the height of 247 km Emergency spy satellite USA-193, moving at a speed of 27,300 km / h

Length: 19.8 m
Steps: 2
Starting weight: 45 tons
Range: 350-500 km
Power Warhead: 0.55 Mt

Was a part of a missile defense system around Moscow, the second generation (A-135) anti-missile missile 51T6 ("Azov") was developed in the ICD "Torch" in the years 1971-1990. Its tasks trans-atmospheric interception came enemy warheads by oncoming nuclear explosion. Batch creation and deployment of "Azov" already implemented in the 1990s, after the collapse of the Soviet Union. At the current time the rocket is removed from service.

The height of defeats the purpose of: up to 20 km

Made in the 1990 modification of SAM Patriot PAC-3 is designed to combat missiles with a range of 1000 km. During the tests March 15, 1999 was destroyed by a direct hit missile target representing the 2nd and 3rd stages of ICBMs "Minuteman 2". After abandoning the idea of a third position area of the U.S. strategic missile defense in Europe Battery Patriot PAC-3 are located in Eastern Europe.

A common anti-aircraft gun 20-mm anti-aircraft gun Oerlicon

Country: Germany — Switzerland
Designed: 1914
Caliber: 20 mm
Rate of fire: 300-450 rounds / min
Distance: 3.4 km

The history of the automatic 20-mm anti-aircraft gun "Oerlikon", also known as "gun Becker" — is the story of a very successful design that has spread around the world and is used to date, despite the fact that the first model of this gun was created by German designer Reinhold Becker during the First World War. The highest rate was achieved by an unusual mechanism in which the shock ignition capsule performed before the end of chambering the cartridge. Due to the fact that the rights to the German invention defected to the firm SEMAG of neutral Switzerland, its options "Oerlikon" during the second world producing both the Axis and the allies.
