How Air Defense Works - Featuring the MIM-104 Patriot

Interested in a Doculock Franchise? Click below: https://doculockllc.com/mcbeth ADA stands for Air Defense Artillery. This has a long and proud history the has its roots in coastal artillery. As the nature of warfare changed, coastal artillery focused on air defense threats. When aircraft eclipsed ship to shore bombardment as the greatest threat, the Army invented anti-aircraft missiles that were designed to shoot down Soviet bombers. The Patriot missile is the Army's premier air defense missile. This system is essentially the Army's strategic power projection platform. The system has a range of roughly 99 miles 160 Kilometers and can track and engage over 100 targets simultaneously in fully automated mode. NOTE: I have taken some creative and operational security liberties with the Patriot Radar screen. The the real Patriot is an Oreo, this is the Hydrox.

HIMARS on Russian Radar - how does it get through?

Ryan McBeth Productions LLC 8705 Colesville Rd. Suite 249 Silver Spring, MD 20910 USA NOTE: I realize that the detection range of the SU-25 was too far away, but I took some creative license with the video because the track looked best in that location. HIMARS stands for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Launcher System. It is used by the Army and U.S. Marine Corps for long-range precision fires. 4 of these systems were donated to Ukraine with more on the way. HIMARS rockets seem to be getting though Russian air defenses where they are striking logistics and command and control centers deep behind enemy lines. But how are these missiles getting past the traditionally good Russian air defenses. I believe that Russia has never encountered a RAM or Rocket Artillery and Mortar threat before. They are used to ABT (Air Breathing Threats) such as Aircraft and TBM (Tactical Ballistic Missile) threats, but have not learned how to deal with RAM. So the missiles are probably showing up on radar, but since HIMARS rockets don't fit the profile of an aircraft or a ballistic missile, the system doesn't know what to do with them until it is too late. Russia may be negate this by a software update or by training.
