Turkish F-16 fighters met with Russian S-300PMU-1 systems

The Greek military used the Russian S-300PMU-1 anti-aircraft missile systems to protect its airspace from Turkish F-16 fighters, which appeared 7 km from the Greek border. It is reported by Defense Arabic resource.

The Russian-made air defense missile systems took Turkish aircraft for escort and carried them as long as the radar range allowed.

This event should be viewed in context the next round confrontation between Ankara and Athens.

Today Greece is one of the few NATO countries armed with Russian anti-aircraft systems. Given the good training of the Greek military personnel for the operation of the S-300PMU-1, if necessary, they may well use the air defense system in combat conditions, which can have unpredictable consequences.

The S-300PMU-1 system was put into service in the Russian Federation in 1993. The main improvement over the S-300P is the use of the 48N6 missile - it has an upgraded hardware and can hit airborne objects moving at speeds up to 6450 km / h. The range of destruction of enemy aircraft - 150 km, ballistic targets - about 40 km.

The purpose of the S-300PMU-1 complex is to combat aircraft, short-range ballistic missiles, as well as deter medium-range tactical ballistic missiles. The warranty period of the complex is 25 years.

    So let's see how the Sultan's adventures will end. I remember that the last skirmish between the Greek Air Force and the Turkish Air Force ended with the fact that the Greeks sent a couple of Turks to swim in the Mediterranean Sea, and the supposedly invincible, Turkey's newest electronic warfare complex, Coral, found its inglorious end in Libya.

    Erdogan quarreled with so many states: Egypt, Greece, Syria, Iran, Armenia, France, etc., that even if everyone folds in a "cuff" - you will be tortured to fight back. What is he hoping for? Great Turkey may not work, but a new state - Kurdistan - is so easy.

        And who will be its copyright holder? Not the ones who handed the tomos to Ukraine?

          The tomos was drawn by a six, a captain of the Turkish army and a Turkish citizen who hides his tongue in ..ne while Erdogan prays to Allah in St. Sophia.

    Another sensation. This time from Defense Arabic. What are the S-300 at a distance of 7 km? Took you for escort ?! Oh really! Just now?! Now, if they hit me, then wake me up ...

    The warranty period ends. And no one will renew it. And the S-400 (like the Turks) will not be sold because the Greeks merged all the data with the Jews and allowed their planes to practice around their S-300.

      Do not hesitate, they will sell everything, this is our government. As for Israel, they were provided with all the data from Moscow, which cannot be done only for relatives in Israel ...

      And no one will renew it.

      The Greeks have a subscription, if they do not refuse, it will automatically last. laughing
      This is real money, on regulations and maintenance. Who will refuse?
      And such advertising in the light of the growing export of high-tech weapons from Russia will not allow unilaterally refusing to extend the terms.

        The agreement probably contains a ban on the transfer of data to third countries.

      What is there to train on the P model, without pairing with our electronic warfare, radars and global guidance systems, distributing targets. There the Syrians with this first volley of Tomahawk 100% shot down or dropped only the S-200, S-125, Armor and Buk, so it's not about the S-300)))

        Who told you about such monstrous results, higher than the technical parameters? :))
        But I was watching an Arab channel - after the American salvo everything on the ground burned and exploded there.
        They didn't shoot down ANYTHING AT ALL!
        Although, if you want to believe that the I-153 is, believe it. :)

    This was me once on a hare hunt - I led him, led him at sight ... Yes, the cartridges were damp, apparently.
