Expert: MiG-29 will calm Turkish Bayraktar drones in Libya


Minister of the Interior of the UN-recognized Libyan PNS Fathi Bashagha said in an interview with Bloomberg that about six MiG-29 and Su-24 fighters were delivered to the LNA forces under the command of Marshal Khalifa Haftar from the Syrian base Khmeimim.


After the transfer of military aircraft, the commander of the Air Force of the Libyan National Army, Saker al-Jorushi, emphasized that within a few hours, a major operation of the LNA air force would begin. An expert on the Middle East, Kirill Semenov, commented on the situation:

MiG-29 must calm down Turkish Bayraktar unmanned aerial vehicles, which will be very vulnerable prey for fighters. Without these drones, PNS troops will not be able to conduct effective military operations. Therefore, with the destruction of the Bayraktars, the balance of power will definitely change, and the pro-Turkish military will no longer be able to achieve significant success.

Semenov also stressed that Turkish air defense is not covered by drones from the ground, since they fly not over cities, but at a distance from them - in a desert area. Air defense is powerless here.

At the same time, the expert believes that Ankara may send several F-29s to Libya in response to the arrival of the MiG-16.

The Turks do not risk anything if they destroy the MiG-29. After all, Russian-made fighters will not fly to combat missions under the Russian flag. Most likely, they will be marked with identification marks LNA

- he said.

Semenov believes that the military conflict in Libya has no military or political solution. You can only freeze the fighting and leave everything as it is.

    If you don’t attach Russia to the event, then it’s wrong, and the article will not be printed.)))

    The "experts" have already shared in Syria, with the S-300, the skin of an unkilled bear ...
    A penny to them.

    Interesting ... and the "expert" thought about how a fighter (which is in the air for about 2 hours) will look for drones (which are in the air for 6-18 hours) in a vast territory?!? Or will he search for them with his radar? Or does the LNA have radars from the S-300 or S-400, well, or radars from electronic warfare systems capable of determining even the approximate location of drones? For him to find them, he must first be pointed at the drone! And so - no fuel is enough to search !!!

      An UAV is a source of a radio signal; I think it is not difficult to search for it.

    What drones and MIG-29? How will he capture and bring them down? MIG-29, this is one of the carriers of the RCC X-31 .... In Libya, the rules and treaties do not apply. So, Turkish frigates are illegal.

    How long have Turks got air defense? They have nothing modern and long-range, if only they bring S-40. The air defense frigates are so-so, the American Standard SM-1ER, discontinued in 1985, the AN / SPG-51 radar with a maximum range of 180 km, the most long-range missiles for them (RIM-67A) have a strike range of 6,5-65 ( to 74) and it’s not a fact that the Turks have them. In general, up to 50 km, an approximate analogue of Buka. On the shore, too, there can be nothing more long-range.

    At the same time, the expert believes that Ankara may send several F-29s to Libya in response to the arrival of the MiG-16.

    Maybe that's just there are not so many airfields for them. They can try to put on a recently repelled base. There they will be covered.

    The escalation of the conflict continues. Turkey is drawn into it. Not too much considering Idlib and the Kurds? But the country is restless, the economy is falling.

    In the Muslim world, an event has occurred that Christians traditionally do not notice.
    The month of peace ended - Ramadan.
    What to do, the tribes under the command of Field Marshal Haftar went home to celebrate the most important holiday of the Muslim world. They are not a regular army. But they are not cowards who fled from the battlefield. They have proved their courage more than once.
    Therefore, to perceive the treacherous attack of the regular parts of Turkey in Libya, as decisive, is not just impossible.
    From the point of view of the local tribes of both Haftar and opponents of Haftar, the Turks, violating the holy Ramadan, covered themselves with shame.
    For this reason, we must be glad that Russia and its allies have such convenient opponents. Who even with their victories paint themselves in a corner.

    - Well, well, Israel didn’t calm down the S-300 because of the crooked horizon.
