Description: In article the analysis of possibilities of the Russian hypersound aviation rocket complex (HARC) “Dagger” is carried out. In the Russian Federation for the purpose of creation of hypersound aviation rocket complexes is spent modernisation of 10 planes MiG-31BM to level МиГ-31К and one plane Tu-22M3 to level Ту-22М3М. Characteristics of carriers of the existing and perspective hypersound weapon of aerospace forces of armed forces of the Russian Federation are resulted. Planes MiG-31K with a hypersound rocket complex bear research fighting watch in Southern military district Russian Federation. Their zones of watch are over the Black sea also. The carried out analysis of appearance and taktiko-technical characteristics allows to as-sume, that rocket Х-47М2 of a hypersound aviation rocket complex “Dagger” is the rocket modernised for air application 9М723К1 an operational and tactical rocket complex “Iskander”. The probable list of land targets HARC is resulted. From the moment of rocket firing Х-47М2 HARC from two probable points to the land targets flight hour is calculated on territories of Ukraine and to item area of a land starting complex of system of antimissile defence “Ages” around Romanian DEVERSELU. According to the Allied joint doctrine for counter-air operations on NATO AJP-3.3.1 (B), in article actions of passive antiaircraft defence which can carry out regiments and divisions of antiaircraft defence of Air Forces of Armed forces of Ukraine for minimi-sation of efficiency of application HARC “Dagger” are offered. These actions concern: Radio engineering and radar-tracking investigation of flights of vehicles HARC; preliminary working out and realisation during the menacing period of system of change of positions of divisions of air defence, including command points of units and divisions of radio engineering armies; masking of divisions on positions, creation of system of plausible false positions, including, and such which radiate; construction of fighting usages with the greatest possible distances between their elements for an exception of defeat of all elements of a fight-ing order one cassette ammunition of HARC; for divisions of antiaircraft missiles armies and radio engineering armies which do not bear fighting watch – the technics maintenance in dispersed on distance is not closer than 100 m single shelters, Which over-lapping is capable to sustain blow of amazing elements of a cassette fighting part of HARC.

Keywords: hypersound aviation rocket complex, rocket, passive antiaircraft defence, target, application.
