As GAF exercise FG prepares to kickoff our intelligence section has been assesing the various targets that will be simulated durring operations. Our Sim OPFOR uses a series of intergrated new and legacy surface to Air Missile or SAM complexes. The SA-6 Gainful is one such legacy system. Deployed durring the Yom Kipor War the SA-6 was a deadly asset for pilots that found themselves in its acquisition radar sights. The SA-6 is comprised of a total of 3 AA missiles per transporter erector launcher or (TEL) for short. The SA-6 can deploy in as fast as 5 minutes to Time on Target or (TOT) its self propelled and is a clasic shoot and scoot system. A standard SA-6 site will have a variant of multiple support vehicles and radar compliments to help it accomplish its mission. Below is just some of the key technical data and capabilities of the SA-6 system.
