Description: The article deals with the substantiation of approaches to forecasting the expected damage to weapons and military equipment of antiaircraft missile troops of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from of the impact of the impact weapon. The main attention is paid to the issue of assessing the effectiveness of the actions of the units of the antiaircraft missile troops. Damages are predicted separately from the tasks of their further elimination, the armament model is considered as an integral object. As a means of destruction, aircraft weapons are mainly considered. In accordance with the distribution criteria for the results that occur when a single target type hit is hit, all the weapons are divided into groups. A qualitative indicator of the prediction of the level of damages of the armament model of antiaircraft missile troops specimen is the sign of the degree of its damage. The criterion for determining the degree of damage to a armament model of antiaircraft missile troops specimen from the impact of the impact action of the means of destruction is the number of weapons that have been hit. Calculation of the probability of obtaining damage by a structural element of an of the armament model of antiaircraft missile troops from the impact of impact weapons was carried out taking into account the engineering equipment of the positions. Such an approach allow the control authorities of the technical support of antiaircraft missile troops to receive correct calculation results for the expected losses of weapons and military equipment of anti-aircraft missile systems as a result of the enemy using impact weapons with a characteristic of the degree of damage.
