Buk-M2 (9k317 or SA-17 "Grizzly")


Recommended Posts

The Buk-M1 system in DCS is very outdated, when it comes to its capabilities.

 

It would be nice to have a newer version of the Buk SAM system, like the Buk-M2.

 

Maybe, the ressources to bring it to DCS are manageable, because most of the launcher modell don't have to be reworked from scratch. And from the code, only some attributes must be changed, like targets, one M2 launcher vehicle can track and engage simultaneously.

Yeah, but it would be a lot more effective if DCS' AI was smart enough to use air defence systems in a way that maximises effectiveness.

 

Also, don't forget that the RADARs and missile FDM for SAMs are incredibly simplified. And for both those reasons, I don't think adding more capable SAM systems is going to make too much of a difference. Not saying no, but I doubt there would be much of a change without a rework of SAM systems across the board, the IADS module seems like it will do that, but no idea when/if it's actually coming, and there's not much detail about ED's WIP IADS system (only that it would be less detailed).

Yeah, that's a different point.

 

But compared to the Buk-M1, the Buk-M2 is capable of tracking and engaging 4 targets at the same time, while the M1 is only capable of one target. Just only this difference, would turn the Buk in a more dangerous SAM, especially if you place it in a 6-unit battery, for instance. This would increase the maximum target number on 24, instead of 6.

 

The AI logic and other factors are another issue.
