Anyone know the NATO reporting name for the SA-5? I had a lot of recognition training in the army, but the memory fades away.......... Big grin

Yes, it's the Gammon, didn't the S300 replace it?
If it was a S300 that destroyed the TU-154, although it was near it's published range limit it wasn't exactly dealing with a manoevering target with ECM.

The S-200 (SA-5) is still around. It is a rather unique missile, although the SA-12 (S-300) and SA-10 (S-300) can partially replace it.
BTW, the report says that the missile exploded near the a/c, but did not achieve a direct hit. I wonder why. The Tu-154 is a large target flying at high altitude in a straight line. Even the SA-5 should have achieved a direct hit without any problems. Is it possible that someone recognized the mistake and was trying to fix it? Was the missile even aimed at the Tu-154?

Most missiles have a proximity-fused warhead, designed to explode near the target showering it with lethal fragments, a big missile like a S-200 or S-300 would have a very powerful warhead.

Yes, I realize that. Why couldn't the SA-5 hit the Tu-154 directly? It is a large target flying at high altitude with a constant speed and heading.

Flight International has confirmed that is was a SA-5.
Very few SAMs 'hit' their targets, one exception being the British Rapier short-range SAM.
I suppose the SA-5 was fused for proximity blast, so when it got near that big TU-154......
