HARDWARE






S-300PS (PMU) SYSTEM
S-300PM2 (PMU2) SYSTEM

PENALTIES
Multiaxis chassis driving time calculation is done according to the following formula:
Ttotal = Tdrv.1 + Tdrv.2 + T1 + T2 + T3 + + T4 + T5

CONDITIONS
The time for carrying out the exercise is increased by the penalty time got for mistakes.
TOTAL TIME FOR THE COMPETITION
The total time for the competition (Ttotal) is a sum of the time for carrying out element №1 (Tdrv1), element №2 (Tdrv2) and the penalty time got for mistakes.
RESULTS
The first place is given to the team with the shortest time. The final result of a participant for piloting a multiaxis chassis can vary:
1 place – 50 points
2 place – 40 points
3 place – 30 points
4 place – 10 points
PENALTIES
Launcher loading time is calculated by the following formula:
Ttotal = Тload + Т1 + Т2

CONDITIONS
The result of launcher loading is estimated considering the mistakes made while doing the exercise. The total time of doing the exercise (Ttotal) is made up by adding the loading time (Tload) and the penalty time for the mistakes made during the operations.
RESULTS
The first place is given to a team with the shortest time. The final result for launcher loading can vary:
1 place – 70 points
2 place – 50 points
3 place – 30 points
4 place – 10 points
CONDITIONS
The total time of doing the exercise (Ttotal) is made up by adding the illuminating and guidance radar and launcher transfer to camping time (Ttransfer to camp.); march performance time (Tmarch); the illuminating and guidance radar and launcher transfer to combat time (Ttransfer to comb.); time of antiaircraft missile orientation and components connection (Torient.) and the penalty time for making mistakes during the operations.
PENALTIES
The time of performing the exercise is calculated by the following formula:
Ttotal = Ttransfer to camp. + Tmarch + + Ttransfer to comb.+ Torient. + Т1 + Т2+ + Т3 + Т4
RESULTS
The first place is given to a team with the shortest time. The final result for the illuminating and guidance radar and launcher transfer to camping (combat) can vary:
1 place – 70 points
2 place – 50 points
3 place – 30 points
4 place – 10 points
RESULTS
Total points of the team for AA combat with imitated guided missile launches are calculated according to the formula:
Stotal = Sb – Sp ams – Sp amb
PENALTIES
The time of doing the exercise is calculated by the following formula:
Ttotal = Ttransfer to camp. + Tmarch + + Ttransfer to comb.+ Torient. + Т1 + Т2+ + Т3 + Т4
PENALTIES
Penalty points calculation for antiaircraft combat with simulated antiaircraft missiles launching for AAMS CP Sp ams is made according to the following formula:Sp ams = S1+ S2 + S3
PENALTIES
Penalty points calculation for antiaircraft combat with simulated antiaircraft missiles launching for AAMS CP Sp amb is made according to the following formula:
Sp amb = S1 + S2 + S3 + S4 + S5 + S6 + S7

ARMAVIR TARGET MISSILE
Altitude: 60-500 m.
Maximum speed: 750 m/s.
Minimum speed: 200 m/s.
