Abstract Modern military doctrines of the leading Western nations are based upon the concept of prompt global strike. Nowadays the accent is set on development and implementation of strategic non-ballistic missiles, hypersonic aircrafts and cruising missiles as the principle of first disarming strike. Under these conditions the demand for mobility of defending force is raised, especially considering the possibility of air mobility of enemy forces, namely the ability to act on unprepared and unequipped military operations theaters. Following the above mentioned, in this article stated the rising role of perspective Lighter-Than-Air (LTA) segment of Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to improve the aerospace defense efficiency. In this regard, it is necessary to develop perspective LTA segment of Armed Forces of the Russian Federation by means of multifunctional tethered aerostatic complexes, unmanned airships and aerostatic transport aircrafts of the new type – ATLANT, able to resolve military tasks, including in Arctic region conditions.
