Media reports on the destruction of the Pantsir-S air defense missile system in Libya


On May 16, 2020, in Libya, a PNS strike UAV destroyed a Russian-made Pantsir-S ZRPK, which was armed with the self-proclaimed LNA of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, the Turkish pro-government newspaper Daily Sabah writes.


This became known from Muhammed Kununu, the military representative of the PNS, the Libyan government, supported by the UN. He specified that the “air elements” of the PNS destroyed the indicated Russian air defense system, which had recently been delivered from the United Arab Emirates to the main air base of the Al-Vatiya LNA.

Kununu added that recently PNS troops, as part of Operation Vulcan of Rage, liberated many Libyan cities from the LNA. After that, an operation began to liberate Al-Vatiya airbase, located about 140 km (86,9 miles) southeast of Tripoli, from the LNA.

Since April 2019, the PNS has been subjected to regular LNA attacks, which is based in eastern Libya. But over the past few weeks, the PNS has made significant strides in the fight against IDA, which is supported by France, Russia, the UAE and Egypt. At the same time, some provinces of Libya, after several months of bombing and shelling by the LNA, have already announced their support for the PNS.

It should be added that the Turkish newspaper forgot to clarify that the Bayraktar drones are supplied by Turkey's PNS. Moreover, the company producing these drones belongs to the relative of the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Also recently turkey has acquired Ukraine has upgraded S-125M1 Pechora-M1 air defense systems, the L-band MARS-L radar and the P-180U long-range meter radar, which may also be in the hands of the PNS in Libya.

    ZRPK "Shell-S" has long screwed up to the fullest ... - this tool is worthless (it’s a pity only for the live crew) ...- It can even be destroyed by a programmed and not very advanced drone ... - And all these versions about supposedly unprepared " stupid Arabs "who cannot" master "this our Shell-S" ZRPK "in any way - already does not" dance "at all ...
    - But so far (with some efforts already) it’s still possible to maintain the legend about ... about the supposedly “efficiency” of our S-300 and S-400, which have long turned into an elementary monument; which are still “silent” and “do not shoot” so as not to expose their own insolvency (although they could have already been applied many times) ......
    1. Why are there some kind of Armor, but scrap S-400! Tell yours in Mossad to fly freely to bomb Putin’s base in Syria! Forward! Massive plaque!
