The expert assessed the threat of Turkish air defense systems for the Syrian Air Force and the Russian Aerospace Forces


Former Deputy Air Force Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Federation for the Combined Air Defense System of the CIS Member States, Lieutenant-General Aitech Bizhev commented on the announcement that Turkey will deploy its HISAR-A and HISAR-O air defense systems in Syrian Idlib.


According to him, Ankara is forced to take such a measure in order to reduce the ability of the Syrian Air Force to hit manpower and machinery Turkish armed forces participating in Operation Spring Shield.

Speaking about the threat that Turkish air defense systems may pose to Russian airspace forces, the reserve general said:

HISAR-A and HISAR-O anti-aircraft missile systems are effective in the fight against Syrian drones, helicopters and, possibly, aircraft. But for the Russian Aerospace Forces, they do not pose any threat, because our aircraft are equipped with powerful means of suppressing the enemy.


The expert further noted that, taking into account the deployment of Turkish air defense in Idlib, Syrian pilots will have to change their tactics of attack: avoid the affected areas of the systems, use anti-ballistic maneuvers and launch attacks that exceed the capabilities of these air defense systems.

Previously we wrote that the Turkish military intends to block the sky over the Idlib for the Syrian Air Force at all possible heights and for this they are moving their HISAR-A and HISAR-O complexes to Syria.

    His words, yes, take for granted. For some reason I don’t believe it.

    By placing its air defense, Turkey violates all agreements and insolently occupies part of Syria! Under such conditions, negotiations can no longer begin! Putin has already handed over the oil fields and the territory beyond the Euphrates to the USA, and now will Idlib surrender? And what now is Russia supposed to feed this Syria for life?

    What is this ??????? - We found some retired general (he has been retired since 2007) ... - it would be better for him to "comment", at worst, the military conflict with Georgia in 2008 ... when our Air Force suffered such losses, that no one expected ... - moreover, two of our military aircraft were then shot down by our own air defense ... - That's how they "distinguished themselves" ... - And today this general is carrying such a blizzard ... which is just right for a Turkish general ...
    - Well, we should not expect anything else from the Turkish general ... - But, when our general, although retired, is ... "broadcasting", then ... - this is just complete darkness ...
    - Wasn’t it then easier to establish “joint air patrols” over the territory of Syria ....- of our Air Forces and the Turkish Air Force ... - If this happens, then personally I won’t be surprised ...
    - Yes, if this happens ... - and Turkey will actually place its air defense systems on the territory of Syria, then Turkey will "overtake" Russia ... - there is nowhere else ... - Only after such "Turkish air defense deployments" the valiant Syrian troops would not scatter ... who where ...

      Damn, well, Irina! You can’t be so incompetent! If you do not understand SO much in military affairs, then you do not need to stick out your incompetence to the public. No, well, it’s clear that you want to be noted, but in this you are sure - neither with your ear, nor ...

    we urge Syria to comply with international law

    Are they out of your mind? Do they really understand international law in the sense that it is impossible to strike at an aggressor that has invaded your territory? Definitely, Turkish air defense systems must be destroyed if they are deployed on Syrian soil.

      Turkish air defense systems must be destroyed

      - and who will do it? In recent days, Turkey has destroyed one drone, eight helicopters, 103 tanks, 72 howitzers, anti-tank grenade launchers and six air defense systems, and more than two thousand Syrian military were “neutralized” during the same operation, and all this was for the death of 33 Turkish military, apart from two Su-24s. All this is in official reports, you want - believe it, you want it - no, it's up to you.
      And if now Putin does not agree with Erdogan, the Syrians will be very hard.

        Nowhere else do they lie than on the hunt and in war

        Do you want to provide other data? For example, such:

        ... 22 BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicles, 13 self-propelled guns of the 122 mm Gvozdika caliber, and five 152 mm ACU Akatsiya, 55 tanks: 13 T-55, 7 T-62, 23 T-72, one T-90 and 11 more tanks of an unidentified model ...

        But let's not forget these:

        ... 120 ... at least 40 tanks, about 50 armored vehicles, 18 MLRS, 12 drones and one short-range air defense system.

        And even then it is not known (and most likely will never become known) about the real losses of both sides.
        That's just for some reason

        Here you are absolutely right, it is our business to believe or not. You, by chance, do not know - the Turkish spokeswoman in Kiev did not intern? It hurts a familiar style. winked
