From Shell to Pechora: Turks showed how they watched Syria’s air defense

The massive use for military purposes of unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with powerful optics puts forward new requirements for the organization of air defense and camouflage air defense systems.

A Turkish video channel specializing in military topics uploaded a video to the network that shows how UAVs of the Turkish armed forces monitor air defense systems of the Syrian Arab army.

The video shows air defense assets of government forces during the movement, as well as in combat positions.

The drone was shot both above and outside the settlements, revealing and fixing the Syrian air defense systems, which, by the way, did not even try to camouflage and in some cases only hid in the folds of the area.

Among the air defense systems recorded by the Turkish PLA camera, the outlines of such systems as the Pantsir-C1 self-propelled anti-aircraft missile and gun system, the Pechora S-125 short-range anti-aircraft missile system, and the 9K330 “all-weather tactical anti-aircraft missile system” are easily discerned. Thor. "

Recall that recently a video appeared on the network with the destruction of the Pantsir-C1 air defense missile system in Syria, allegedly carried out from a Turkish drone.

However, a number of details of the posted video suspicious, and suggests that it was created using computer graphics.

    Well, if it’s calmer and more correct from a spiritually elevating point of view, let it be so. Yes, and they wrote here that the technique was cardboard-plywood and they lit the Turks like suckers. Only it would be necessary to decide somehow, is it computer graphics, or plywood?

      There were 2 videos in total, on one of them the picture changed drastically between the shooting and the explosion, on the second on the chassis it was obviously NOT Carapace .... And about the other 6, I dreamed about it in general. Or really "plywood" was bombed.
      It is believed that 2 of the really affected Shells came under artillery fire when advancing to advanced battle formations, and not from the action of drones. Therefore, there is not a single real video confirmation.

        In the first, a piece of the drone’s barrage is simply cut out in a circle around the target, so the defeat is filmed from a different angle.

        In the second video, the chassis is the same, the "specialists" interpreted the play of light and shadows in a dedicated way, that's all.

    It would be strange if for several years of official presence on the territory of Idlib, on the line of contact of the SAA with terrorists, they did not observe anything. Therefore, the air defense system and relocated openly, while the hostilities were not.
    And then 20 "observers" fell from the sky ...

    But the leaders in drones are not Turkey, but Israel. Only, it’s clear that they don’t upload videos to the network.

    Then it’s clear why they bomb with impunity ....

      Only, apparently, they do not upload it to the network.

      - spread everything. There was a video of the destruction of the Shell, the reaction of Ur of the patriots is exactly the same - "all lies, this is propaganda", "The shell is not real", "the Syrian went to dinner", etc., all one to one, as in this article, and the comments are the same. It feels like one person writes them. The "sofa troops" exactly "know" what the equipment looks like through the lens of the drone and can distinguish who has how many wheels.
      And this article - "allegedly carried out from a Turkish drone", "arouses suspicion", "suggests a thought", "outlines are guessed" - about nothing, a topic for gonotry.

        They posted a whole couple, and it's not about them, with whom it does not happen ....
        And they bomb every week ... but in order to bomb, you need to aim ...
