Media: Buk missile defense systems delivered to Libya


According to Arab sources, Buk anti-aircraft missile systems were delivered to Libya. They will protect Russian Su-24 bombers and MiG-29 fighters from Turkish F-16 attacks, the media are sure.


The source suggests that the complexes could have come from neighboring Egypt. SAM Buk are in service with the air defense forces of this Arab country since the days of the USSR.

Earlier, the American command reported the presence of Russian military aircraft at the Al Jufra air base, which the Russian Federation allegedly handed over to support the LNA army under the leadership of Marshal Khalifa Haftar to fight the PNS forces. Now, thanks to the Bukami, which were transported from the United Arab Emirates, Russian bombers and fighters are practically invulnerable to attacks from the ground.

The US authorities once again accused the Russian Federation of violating the arms embargo on Libya, since the Libyan National Army did not have such weapons systems. In addition to the “Buk”, Al-Dzhufra also has the Zanzamir-based missile system.

A few weeks ago it became known that the LNA began to use advanced Buk-M2 air defense systems. Their use led to the destruction of one and a half dozen unmanned aerial vehicles PNS Turkish production. For this reason, perhaps the Turkish authorities are afraid to use their F-16s for attacks on Al-Jufra. In social networks, there is also information about Haftar receiving new Pantsir-S1E air defense missile defense systems in exchange for those lost in battles, which will strengthen the air defense of his troops.

    And even earlier, the American command reported weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

      I’m just wondering - why did Saddam poison the Kurds? No way Chanel No. 5? And the fact that he poisoned them is not denied by anyone, including Russia. Or is a chemical weapon not an WMD?

    Media: Buk missile defense systems delivered to Libya

    - Here ...- these old “Buki” will be more reliable than all these “shells” ...
    - It will only be a little expensive to hunt for different drones and UAVs with the help of Buk ...
  3. Fine! Our weapons pass invaluable tests in real battles! Fine!

    Well, why are Russian MIGs and Sushki just Russian-made aircraft? Remember how in that song about an American pilot who was shot down in Vietnam - "... and the slanting man answered me that he commanded the interrogation, our pilot Lisitsyn shot you down" (Y is capital, because it is stressed.

      To date, some pilots from an American, Israeli or German aircraft may well in a generally accessible Russian dialect, briefly and succinctly, explain the situation. laughing Regardless of brand, model and country of manufacture of the aircraft.

        Well, for our pilots it will not be difficult either. I recall the story of one pilot flying on bears along the borders of the United States. During the next flight, and this was July 4th, the Americans as usual arrived on their fighters and tell our men, they say, men arrived again. And ours - yes, they came to congratulate you on your holiday, a gift under the wing. Well, they were so stunned that they did not find anything to answer.

          One can hardly surprise anyone with knowledge of English, French or German, especially if a person has a good education. Although, on the other hand, it is the same with Russian. Wherever you go on vacation, in two or three weeks someone from the local Aboriginal people who have previously been or studied in the Union or some immigrant immigrant will meet.
