BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:50 P.M.) – Russia is planning to deliver new air defense weapons to Syria in the near future, General Sergei Rudskoy stated on Wednesday, as quoted by RIA.

“Russian specialists will continue training Syrian military personnel, as well as assist in the development of new air defense systems, the deliveries of which will be carried out in the near future,” he said.

According to him, the Syrian Defense Ministry “analyzed in detail” the results of the missile attack of the United States and its allies.

“Based on it, a number of changes have already been introduced into the air defense system of the country, which will further increase its reliability,” Rudskoy said.

While the air defense systems were not named, it is widely believed to be the S-300 system.

This is fantastic news for Syria and another move on the chessboard by Russia. There is still scope to offer Syria the S400 and in time the S500.

It is Israels move now 🙂

S-500 is too expensive and pretty much useless to everyone (in terms of the size of the territory) except Russia and perhaps China and India, because this system is planned to replace the A-135 missile system currently in use in Russia, and to be a supplement the S-400. Plus, S-500 is surface-to-air missile/anti-ballistic missile system on strategic level and probably that system will not leave Russia.

The documented cowards will take it out on Palestinians in wheel chairs, and children armed with stones.

IMHO, we’re more likely to see a combined S-300 + Pantsir IADS.
S-300 is more adapted to long range/high-altitude while Pantsir is more adapted at defending areas against attacks by missiles/aerial bombs.

Dear Israel…Your ‘red line’ has been crossed. Are you to attack Russia now? Chickenmanure. I guess you see what happens when you tell Russians what they can’t do, then threaten them. Maybe Russia is wondering who is behind the attempted terrorist acts in Russia. It appears that your BS threats are not much good any more. Your little toy soldier US Gen Votel better read the writing on the wall, before he decides to go down with you and your criminal state…and to Nuttcase…You’ve been asking for it, now you’ve got it, A-hole…LOL…

The S300 is no longer produced, only systems taken off service in mainland Russia can be supplied to Syria. The original export versions of S300 excluded some key components, so not necessarily a bad thing.
