Turks deprive Marshal Haftar of the "Shell": footage of the destruction of two air defense systems at once

On May 20, 2020, Turkish drones fighting on the side of the Government of National Accord (PNS) in Libya destroyed two Pantsir-C1 air defense missile systems of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, recently brought by his allies from the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The first ZRPK was hit while moving along the road, and the second - during the extension to the firing position.

Frames in which at least the incapacitation of the two mentioned air defense systems is documented are already available on the Web. It should be noted that the Bayraktar TB2 UAV, and possibly Anka-S, conduct a targeted hunt for air defense systems of Field Marshal Haftar. The Turks are trying to deprive the LNA of protection from an air attack so that the PNS gets an advantage in the war.

Thus, in recent days, the LNA has definitely lost five units of the Pantsir-C1 air defense system. And that's not counting the many stuffingthat are difficult to consider reliable information. The expert community believes that the Turks began to actively use powerful electronic warfare systems, which greatly impede the operation of enemy radar and allow UAVs to move freely in Libyan airspace.

In addition, it is likely that the Turks began to use high-precision SOM cruise missiles (with a warhead weighing 230 kg) for the destruction of protected objects (shelters) of the flare aircraft, launching them from their F-16s over the Mediterranean Sea. It is no secret that before this, the Turkish Air Force rehearsed attacks on the territory of Libya using reconnaissance aircraft and air tankers.

    Twice caught on the march. This means full control of the airspace by the Turks.

      One of the reasons for the failure of the LNA in recent years is precisely the presence of these Turkish frigates off the coast of Libya. The Turkish fleet simply closed the sky over Libya. After all, these frigates have a powerful air defense system, which neutralized the aircraft of the VLA.

    It's not even clear, but what hit the target? What projectile? Maybe a mine was blown up? And in general, why is the complex itself alone, without an escort, or a column that it must accompany? Stopped and exploded. In the past false rollers, it was also so. Maybe they destroyed the very "Shell" that they captured? In general, there are many questions. Especially in connection with the fact that all sorts of fake people have already done.

    As required to prove, they were transferred from Khmeimim to Libya: 2- Su-24, 6- mig-29, 2 - Su-35.
    Attention, the question to minusers is - why?
    Maybe to regain control of the airspace?

    Guys, well, how is it, Putin says to the whole world that our "Pantsiri", S-300, 400 and 500 air defense systems (the latter - in general, can shoot "Martians"), but in fact - these air defense installations - are easily and massively destroyed all and sundry. Even tribes with bows and arrows will tie an ordinary grenade to an arrow and destroy Russian air defense !!! How so, offensively, explain who can, how so?

      Arabs, sir ... There is mentality, discipline, and the issues of the availability of related equipment and its interaction. Both the F-22s and the F-35s fall, and the Patriots see nothing. Anything can happen. As Clausewitz said:

      Military affairs is simple and accessible to everyone. But it’s hard to fight.

    On the first one is the "Pantsir" cabin. You are talking nonsense, the "Shell" has single wheels in a row and a different cabin.

    Another fake media. "Pantsir-S1" has not been supplied or exported. Therefore, all this is pure lie and provocation ...
