"Israel deceived the Russian C-300 in Syria": why is it a lie

Western media have been savoring the next opinion of Richard Frank, an “analyst” from Australia, for several days now. This "specialist" in the Middle East and any other region of the planet, the oceans and even deep space, is a teacher at the school policy and international relations, Australian National University. He has long been registered in the media space, regularly disturbing public opinion with his “analyzes”.

It should be noted that it was this uncompromising banknote fighter who recently told how “Israel will easily turn off the Russian air defense systems in Syria” and how the White House “circumvented” the Kremlin in a “campaign” against ISIS (a terrorist organization banned in Russia). And so, the master of verbiage made another "discovery". Frank "revealed" the secret of how the Israeli Air Force "deceive" the air defense system, including the S-300, in Syria. At the same time, he told that all Russian UAVs, it turns out, are copies (clones) of Israeli originals.

According to Frank, the Israeli Air Force learned to bypass air defense in Syria, and "easily." Moreover, the “expert” does not give any details, especially technical ones, at all. Pointing only to the fact that the Israeli raids did not stop. And these personal conclusions are happy to quote from unscrupulous media, posing as an axiom.

However, in reality, everything does not look as rosy as Frank tries to portray it. Firstly, Israeli air raids have dropped significantly. Secondly, the Israeli Air Force strikes using the airspace of their country, as well as adjacent countries (Lebanon and Jordan), without crossing the Syrian air border. Moreover, there have been cases of striking directly from the Mediterranean Sea. That is, Israeli pilots no longer run the risk of flying into Syrian airspace, and Syrian air defense does not yet have the "audacity" to bring them down over foreign territory. After all, this will be an act of aggression. But it is safe to assume that the stronger the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) becomes, the less Israel will worry about this country, therefore, there will be less “enthusiasm” and “optimism” from Frank and similar “analysts”.

As for the Russian UAV, it is still more interesting. Frank concluded that the Israel Defense Forces (or IDF) shot down the Outpost UAV. As a result, it was found that he was "similar" to the Israeli Searcher II. The “giant of thought” and an expert on any issues from Australia did not trifle and made the conclusion described above, adding that Russia had only a few dozen different UAVs.

In this case, we would like to enlighten Frank a little. Firstly, Forpost UAVs are manufactured under Israeli license and Technologythat Russia spent money on. The deal was legal and well-lit in the information space. That is, no one stole anything. Therefore, Frank and the media, it may be inconvenient to once again mention that Israel sold something to Russia. Secondly, Russia has not a few dozen UAV units, but several dozen UAV varieties. At the same time, the total number of UAVs has long exceeded several thousand units and continues to increase.

    Baby talk. Fly less, do not cross the border, blah - blah. But in fact, they bombed and bombed along the way - not only in Syria. Are there any downed planes? Not. Everything else is talk for the poor.

      Patient - doctor:
      - You see, such a thing - I am 65, and my neighbor is 65 years old, we are the same age. So, he says that he can his wife three times a week, and sometimes more.
      The doctor tells the patient:
      - Open your mouth.
      He opened. The doctor shone a flashlight and says:
      - With vocal chords you are fine. I can’t understand why you cannot say the same thing as your neighbor?


      - Doctor, on the first everything is fine with me, on the second - I feel tired, on the third I have shortness of breath.
      “I would like that too!”
      “Doctor, what are you thinking, I'm talking about the steps.” How are you with shortness of breath?

    They grabbed onto these 300 Syrians. S-300 are not designed to shoot down aircraft missiles, targets are too small. This should be done by systems such as "Tunguska", "Pantsir" and the like. And with this the Syrians do not, from the word - at all. One or two complexes do not make the weather, and the Israeli Air Force is well aware of this. The Syrians had the opportunity to shoot at planes over foreign territory before, but who will give the "hegemon" such a fat reason. With the advent of new air defense systems at Assad, now only Syrians and ours fly in the skies over Syria. All these stories about the "blind", "deceived", in general, just bad systems of the Russians, go under the authority of bad competition. Yeah. "Patriot" forever, which can only be called an analogue of the S-300. The funny thing is that the Israelis themselves, from a certain moment, put porridge in their mouths and keep quiet.

    Israel has learned several times to turn off the S-300 during exercises in Bulgaria and Cyprus. There is nothing surprising in this.

    The Israelis do what they want.
    And if articles, such as this one, were read, burst into laughter.
