I am from Slovakia, but I do not know any information about Slovak Air Defense. If anybody could clue me in I would greatly appreciate it!

Sorry, Roman, but Slovakia is so far down the threat priority list that there's no way the USAF is ever going to worry about its air defense network, so I for one have no help to offer. :-( Displacedjim

Oh? I always thought Slovakia posed a grave threat to the U.S.! When I last was in Slovakia we had precisely 1 operational figher aircraft. It has been predicted that the U.S. airforce will have only 1 airplane by 2050 if costs continue to grow at the present rate. This clearly and unfailingly indicates that Slovakia is 46 years ahead of the U.S. in technology and military power. Despite this you do not fear our military might and our transparently evil intentions? I must say I am surprised! ;) displacedjim - I understand - I just thought someone might have the info - we are a NATO ally of the U.S. after all so to cooperate with us the U.S. must know the limits of our military capabilities. :)

Aren't slovakia considering a common air defence with the chechs and/or hungarians? The chech and hungarians have an understanding with BAE systems to by more gripen fighters in case of that scenario.

I am pleasantly surprised, since I assumed that Slovakia cancelled the deal with Russia to supply the S-300 PMU for political reasons in exchange for Slovakia forgiving part of Russian debt, but now I can see that the deal went through. Just to elaborate on my original question - how many SAM launchers are there in each of the groups and how many missile reloads are there? I should probably know this information, but my military service is still ahead of me, so I have not had the opportunity to learn these things first hand yet. Este raz dakujem za informacie. S pozdravom, Roman

Ahoj Romane, Slovakia didn't buy SA-10, but they (you) inherited it after former Czechoslovak Army. Czechoslovakia had only one detachment with SA-10 - originally 20th SAM Detachment (Kacice) in 71st SAM Brigade (Prague). I don't know how many launchers are there. SA-6: 2 groups were originally Czechoslovak SAM regiments which were on Slovak territory in 1992. Each regiment has about 15 to 20 launchers. SA-3: Slovakia took this system with 186th SAM brigade. There were 4 detachments with SA-2 Guideline (S-75M Volchov) and 4 detachments with SA-3. SA-2 were cancelled (but I don't know when). Also Slovakia has some SA-13 (Strela-10), SA-7b (Strela-2M) and SA-16 (Igla, unlike other systems this was bought after dissolution of Czechoslovakia) for close air defence. Regards P.S.: We are talking in english that's funny :-)

Ahoj Pavle, Znovu dakujem za informacie a naozaj je zvlastne ze spolu komunikujeme po anglicky. Nevedel som ze Ceskoslovensko malo SA-10. Pamatam sa ze pred niekolkymi rokmi boli rokovania o 'kupe' S-300 systemu z Ruska. Peniaze mali byt odpisane z Ruskeho dlhu, avsak nakoniec to padlo z politickych dovodov. S pozdravom, Roman

Oare de ce vorbiti toti doar Slovaka? Engleza este o limba foarte frumoasa...
