Integrated ocean-land-space defense and offensive complex


Originally Taran was one of the many perspective ABM systems being developed and tested in the Soviet Union. More or less a the same time Chelomey have devised what you are seeing above.
It is basically multilayered integrated battle management system runnig host of multidomaing defensive and offencive measures. It is de facto a continental sized A2/AD system.
It is much more holistic version of the SDI coupled with offensive measures like cruise missiles, long range rocket torpedos and ballisic missiles and also composite situation awerness through integration of data from multitude of different sensors.
More or less it is net-centric automatised warfare half a century before it become a thing.
Technology-wise, this world is quite similar to our own, with some difference. For example, the internet is mostly used by the military and goverment. Few private persons have access to it. The Internet, is mostly used on the continental United States. The rest of the World is using a further developed Version of the Soviet OGAS System. Unlike it´s Western Counterpart, the Users of the OGAS System are using a Terminal based system, with access to a central Mainframe System.

In reality basis for Warsaw Pact internet would be networked RIAD series ELWRO was satring to concept in 1974 (and actually in part it was introduced).
You forget that most of the middle class of computer equipement (it used in everyday work fro optimising and running railways, power plants, accounting systems or banking) in COMECON (and also host of other nations globally like North Korea, Bangladesh and Cuba) nations were designed, made, sold and serviced by Polish state enterprise of ELWRO. Also the fastest and most efficiend RIAD was made by them, not Eastern Germans as usually was preached (main reason was becouse they were at the border and engaged in small time commerce with West in that area, Poles at the dawn of IT industry went into cooperation with British which ended with signing software deal with them, and later with Japanese, both directions plus very much modern administration and state recognition have ended with creation of real COMECON equivalent of Apple/Microsoft lite company).
