Three reasons: Israel explained why the Syrian S-300s are silent


An important achievement of the Israeli IDF, experts call a large number of successful airstrikes on military targets of Hezbollah and Iran in Syria. Russia deployed S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems in this Arab Republic, and even formally handed them over to the Syrian military. However, the SAM data did not fire a single shot at the Israeli Air Force. The Israeli edition of "Details" analyzes the possible causes of inaction of the Syrian S-300.


The first reason is the complete control of the missile systems by Russian specialists who “keep their hand on the button”, preventing Damascus from independently discharging the air defense systems.

The second reason is the double game, which, according to the Israelis, is played by the Kremlin in Syria:

Assad’s Russian advisers do not allow Syrians to use weapons against Israeli aircraft. Considering that since 2015, Moscow has been providing military support to the Bashar al-Assad regime in the form of sending soldiers, military aircraft and air defense systems to Syria to protect bases, this indicates Putin’s double game. On the one hand, Russia is trying to stabilize Syria with the support of Iran and wants to reduce influence in the region of Israel; on the other hand, Moscow does not respond to attacks by the Israeli Air Force, thus indirectly encouraging their actions

- emphasize the experts of the "Details".

The third reason why the S-300 does not fire at Israeli aircraft is the fear of misses. If Russian complexes are suddenly missed, this will inflict a serious blow on the prestige of the Russian military industry.

    That is, it turns out, one accidental hit and the end to all three versions? How is it there? With one shot of three birds with one stone?)

      The previous time, I remember, you tried to "build" a syllogism from two questions. But I clearly underestimated you: the "construction" of the syllogism, already consisting of three questions, gives a complete picture of the reasons for the terrible silence of the S-300. In my unenlightened opinion, there are all three reasons indicated in the publication. And also the fourth. The S-300 against modern Israeli combat aircraft is equivalent to the slingshot you have known since childhood. For the reason that the strike on the S-300 is delivered through the illumination beam before the missiles are launched. And the result is like in the Chinese trick: here was the S-300, but there is none.
      Of course, the easiest way to write:

      If Russian complexes suddenly miss ...

      Yes, not suddenly, but guaranteed. Therefore, they do not shoot. Here I also have one question: Why did they supply? Why were the individual characters from the VO and Reporter sites reassuring? It is a sin to laugh at sick people, as Shurik used to say in the legendary film "Prisoner of the Caucasus".

        It is this reason that seems to be the main one here.

        The beginning was good, I even burst into tears, froze in front of you, for clever words, in deep sorry, dass)
        But then, your personal interpretation with the “fourth reason” deeply disappointed ..

        .. a strike on the S-300 is inflicted on the backlight beam, before launching missiles ..

        So:

        The missile illumination and guidance radar is designed to detect air targets in its sector of responsibility. A radar equipped with a phased antenna array with command control is capable of tracking several dangerous targets at the same time. According to escort data, that is, azimuth, elevation, range, speed, the DAC generates commands to direct the air defense missile launchers to the anticipated point, and forms launch and guidance signals for anti-aircraft missiles. AFTER STARTING SAM, it illuminates the target being fired.

        Highlighting targets and guiding missiles are carried out due to the antenna post, which can be advanced to a height of 21 meters. The antenna is a phased array with an electronic scanner.

        The phased antenna array P1M2 with command control is able to generate the desired antenna pattern and direct the beam to a given point in space, if necessary, with each probe pulse, since the phasing of the antenna lasts only a few tens of microseconds.

        The maximum that a plane can detect by the backlight is an antenna post raised to a height of 21 meters. Well, and how to shoot at him his anti-radar missile.
        But even this antenna, imagine, knows how to defend itself.

        Gazetchik-E (GRAU Index 34Ya6E) is a Soviet and Russian complex designed to protect radiating radars from being hit by anti-radar missiles (PRR). Developed by the All-Russian Research Institute of Radio Engineering, chief designer G. Avanesov [1] Counteraction to PRR is carried out by short-term shutdown and modulation of the emitting radar signal in combination with the use of shooting dipole reflectors and the formation of an aerosol cloud that interferes with active radar, television and thermal homing heads of attacking missiles.

        Wiki

        There are other methods of protection, but this is for yourself).

        And the result, as in the Chinese focus: here was the S-300, but it is not there ...

        This, incidentally, is in the subject of “other methods of protection” - disguise, etc.

        It is a sin to laugh at sick people, as Shurik used to say in the legendary film "Prisoner of the Caucasus".

        No one is laughing at you. Just discussing.

        Such verbiage, only in the end to yank out a maxim worthy of any ukrobloger, the level of a degenerate shkololo. And why was the garden to fence. I will give you a shorter way. "The whole world knows that the S-300 against the ancient F-16 are worthless." And swear by my mother. Voila. Ukrainian experts on air defense and politics in the Middle East will take away your bitter bread in a more intelligible form.

        Do not write nonsense. Modern Israeli aircraft are as old as the S-300. Except for the F-35.

    Two, two need to hit.
    It is possible for larger missiles, if you really need to, and not just for airplanes.

    But here it is true. Zero starts - zero hits. And in the internet you can look who dresses the national Jewish hats from the Russian authorities ...

        It is clear that until an order arrives, no one will shoot down Israeli planes. But the S-300 is very dangerous for Hal Haavir. The precedent that debunked the myth of invulnerability of Israeli aviation already existed.
        The F-16I Sufa was shot down 2 years ago.

        TEL AVIV, Feb 11 - RIA News. The Israeli military plane that crashed on the eve was struck by fire from the ground, follows from the materials of the army press service.

        The pilots, in accordance with the instructions, left the car and landed on Israeli territory, "- said in an infographic material from the press service of the department, published in English on the Twitter microblog.

        During the bailout, the pilot received serious injuries and after the operation is in the Haifa hospital. The navigator suffered less seriously, he is already "on his feet." This was announced by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
        According to the military, Syrian government forces fired at the planes using Soviet or Russian-made S-200 and Buk anti-aircraft missile systems.

          Once in 38 years, and even then using the pilot’s mistake. Not much. How many VKS aircraft lost in the fight against the formidable ISIS air defense and the equally formidable ISIS aviation in 5 years?

    Guesses and assumptions are not reasons, especially about the fear of misses. Moreover, we are really experiencing technology in Syria. Israel provokes the use of the S-300 to repel small raids, but this is revealing the deployment, specifying frequencies, and missile consumption, which, given the possibility of a mass raid, requires caution.

      ... the possibility of a mass raid requires caution ..

      Yes, no air defense system in the world can stand alone against massive attacks. Therefore, the air defense must operate in close conjunction with the means of destruction of “decision points” and the destruction of means of support (bases, radar, ships, logistics infrastructure, airfields) of the enemy. The Syrians do not have this opportunity. S-300, apparently, are intended exclusively for the defense of certain important objects. Therefore, they are silent.
