Russian electronic warfare systems have become an insoluble problem for NATO


In February 2021, tensions increased between NATO and Russia. The sides exchanged significant statements with the mention of the word "war". This cannot but cause concern, especially against the backdrop of existing tensions and regional conflicts, writes the French news site Atlantico.


In these difficult times, when organized crime and terrorism are widespread, European public opinion and its leadership are led astray. Lazy Europeans firmly believe in rusty Russian tanks and nuclear missiles in dilapidated hangars. At the same time, analysts have observed a completely different picture over the past 10 years.

Strategic blindness is fraught with disaster, so a closer look at the Russian arsenal is needed. It is much more high-tech than it seems at first glance.

Recently Polish military held the Winter 2020 headquarters exercise was an imitation of real hostilities with Russia. The Poles used all the high-tech weapons purchased from the United States, including the Patriot air defense system and F-35 fighters. As a result, the Polish army ceased to exist as a military and combat-ready organism within four days. The defeat was complete and unconditional, and the Russian tanks rolled towards the Oder.

And this was not a surprise. Five years ago, the Baltic states were defeated even more revealingly in a similar military training session. Then 60 hours were enough for the RF Armed Forces, but over the past time the Russian army has become much stronger.

Experts explain this by the fact that in just a decade Moscow has acquired a high-tech arsenal. The Russians especially succeeded in developing electronic warfare systems, of which they have dozens of types. They have become an insoluble problem for the Alliance. There is no such weapon even in the "last real" armies of Europe, i.e. from France, Germany and Great Britain. The rest can even be ignored.

Electronic warfare means simply paralyze enemy electronics. Syria is an illustrative example, and at the same time a proving ground. The Russians brought in a decent amount of Krasukha-4 systems there. A kind of "dome" with a radius of 300 km was formed over Khmeimim. If they want, radar, satellite communication systems, UAV control channels, high-frequency radio, cellular communications, Wi-Fi and other useful attributes of modern war, actively used by the West, cannot work in it.

The Russians have literally saturated Syria with their electronic warfare means, so it is difficult for NATO to do anything there. They also brought there the complexes "Moscow-4", "Borisoglebsk-2", "Svet-KU", "Rtut-BM", "Infauna" "Repellent", "Avtobaza-M" etc. They do not even allow you to see the takeoffs and landings of aircraft, as well as missile launches. Prior to that, the Americans absolutely calmly, without interference, communicated with the Syrian militants, informing them about the movements of government troops. Now they have become deaf-blind and dumb, summed up the media from France.

    - And why is NATO doing something there ??? - The same Belarusian "Polonaise" (MLRS ... -reactive multiple launch rocket system that fires 301-mm Chinese A200 missiles) hits at a distance of 300 km .... - Practically ... - this is an OTRK ... - operatively- tactical missile system ... - And not so long ago Belarus delivered these complexes to Azerbaijan; those. b-ka Lukashenka sold these "Polonaises" to Azerbaijan (and why not) ... - Well, what is in Azerbaijan, then ... then ... it cannot but be in Turkey ... - So what ... - These "Polonaises" may well "sound" in Syria and in our base Khmeimim ...

      They can, they can, but who will give them! (c) If the electronic warfare does not knock out their electronics (Polonez missiles), then the air defense-missile defense systems come into action, that's all for a short time! hi Well, and then ........ the place of launch and the place of making a decision on launch are covered with Calibers, Daggers or other means, which will be convenient for the military-political leadership of Russia. Everything according to the situation.

        - On donkeys; on backs ... "on foot" ... - on anything ... - they brought up, dragged from different sides rusty used mortars (which are not a pity to throw); including six-barreled German rocket launchers of the WWII times (they are still used and very easily transported) ... and opened a single-stage short fire from all sides on our base ... from several positions ... - And, almost simultaneously hung up several dozen cheap homemade drones with crappy "distraction jammers" ... - And only then they opened fire with MLRS systems ... - at our base ... - It's scary to write this ... - but it's so real that .. ........

        Well, and then ........ the place of launch and the place of making a decision on launch are covered with Calibers, Daggers or other means, which will be convenient for the military-political leadership of Russia.

        - Yes ... what are you ??? - And Calibers and Daggers and all sorts of ... "cutlery" ???
        - They also forgot about the forces of the VKS ... - just the Third World War; and only ...
        - In short ... - do not write more ... nonsense ...

    Then 60 hours were enough for the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, and after all, over the past time, the Russian army has become much stronger.

    The flies sat down to rest, but the crocodiles were green. The grass was growing, but the sun was shining brightly. An article was posted on the Reporter, and the Criminal Code has recently changed.

    In these difficult times, when organized crime and terrorism are ubiquitous, public opinion in Europe and its leaders are led astray.

    Someone please explain to me: what is this all about?

      They have a cognitive dissonance. The declared power of NATO and its real capabilities do not coincide with the pan-European Wishlist. The image of a man in felt boots with an AK in his hands, riding a bear, does not fit with what is happening in Syria.

    - What is this stupid and deceitful article title for?

    Electronic warfare means simply paralyze enemy electronics. Syria is a good example, and at the same time a proving ground. The Russians brought in a decent amount of Krasukha-4 systems there. A kind of "dome" with a radius of 300 km was formed over Khmeimim.

    - Why write this deliberately stupid nonsense? When 32 Israeli GBU-39 bombs struck an Iranian facility built under the nose of the Khmeimim base, to hide behind it, of course, 12 kilometers from it, alarming and plunging into panic everyone there (the death of the Il-20), - why is this magic dome with a radius 300 (three hundred, Karl !!) kilometers did not "work" ?!
    One will write nonsense, a thousand people will read it - and begin to retell further ...

      You shouldn't have dragged the story of the Il-20 here, there was a banal carelessness in the calculation of the Syrian (namely the Syrian) air defense system. After that, by the way, control over the skies was completely taken over by the Russian base. there was a lot and it makes no sense to reopen the controversy. In short, Russia protects only its facilities. And the ranks and pro-Iranian militants are not among them. Moreover, when the war is over (and it will end, sooner or later) these very objects and formations will become a specific headache for any future Syrian government. The Israelis are allowed, no more. Remind you of the story of how the American salvo ended with axes at the airfield of our Aerospace Forces? Of the 137 missiles, 2/3 were simply lost, the rest hit the "milk". After 3 hours in normal mode.

    The Syrians stated:
    1. We did not shoot at the Il-20.
    2. This is not our sector of responsibility at all, we never go there, this is the sector of responsibility of the S-400.
    3. Bashara Assad did not apologize for the downed Russian plane (if it were shot down by the Syrians), he expressed his condolences Russian comrades.
    4. Nobody anywhere in the Russian media said who exactly shot down the Il-20? Surname, name of the commander of the SAM crew. ZERO.

    After that, by the way, control over the sky was completely taken over by the Russian base.

    - The Russian base, in any case, cannot control the sky over all of Syria - the Earth, however, is round there too.

    Much has been written here about the bombing of the Israelis (rocket attacks) on Iranian targets, and there is no point in reopening the controversy. In short, Russia protects only its own facilities. Iranian and pro-Iranian militants are not among them.

    - The Syrian ones do not enter either, but they, in general, are not beaten - if they sit quietly ...

    Moreover, when the war is over (and it will end, sooner or later), these very objects and formations will become a specific headache for any future Syrian government.

    - Maybe - yes, maybe - no, everything will depend on the authorities.

    Israelis are allowed no more.

    - And we could not allow ?! laughing lol

    To remind you of the story of how the American salvo with axes at the airfield of our aerospace forces ended? Of the 137 missiles, 2/3 were simply lost, the rest hit the milk. After 3 hours, the base was operating normally.

    - It was a demonstration flogging, not with the aim of killing the maximum number of people or maiming, - in fact, an empty Syrian base.

    Poles used everything acquired the United States has high-tech weapons, including the Patriot air defense system and fighter F-35.

    After that, you don't have to read the article - the level of analytics is clear. Well, or the author of the article is already living in 2024.
