S-300

Russia is helping Syria restore and modernized its air defense system, Russia’s Ambassador to that country, Alexander Kinshchak, told TASS on Friday.

“We are helping our Syrian partners to restore, modernize and boost the efficiency of the integrated air defense system,” he said when asked how well Syria is protected against possible airstrikes by Western nations.

“Much is yet to be done because everything was in utter devastation, but certain results can already be seen,” he said.

In late April, chief of the main operations directorate of the Russian General Staff, Sergei Rudskoi, said that Syria would soon receive new air defense systems and promised that Russian specialists would help the Syrian military to master them. He refrained from details of the systems, saying only that the S-125, Osa and Kvadrat systems used by the Syrian army had been restored and modernized with Russia’s assistance.

In late August, the Russian Defense Ministry warned about a possible provocation plotted in the Syrian Idlib governorate by militants under supervision of British special services.

Thus, according to the ministry, militants were planning to simulate the use of chemical weapons against civilians by Syrian government troops to furnish the United States, the United Kingdom and France with a pretext to deliver an airstrike on Syrian government and economic facilities.

There is information that Russians are planning to close the airspace above Al-Tanf and let Syrian Army launch attack on that area. Russians know it will be hard to kick those USA invaders but not impossible…

There is much more information in Russian but I really don’t have time anymore to search. If you know Russian you can find plenty information. I’m confident this time Russians are ready to strike USA in Al Tanf.

“saying only that the S-125, Osa and Kvadrat systems used by the Syrian army had been restored and modernized” => S-125 Neva/Pechora AKA Sa-3 Goa : 1961 2 missiles on ZIL-131 truck or 2-4 on fixed turrets (fixed turrets are THE thing to avoid in air-defence! Never let a battery at the same place more than 4 hours!) Range : 3.5-35km, engagement altitude 100m-18km or: Range : 2.5-22km, engagement altitude 20m-14km, depending on versions and goals.

what ever happnend to the notion of russia re thinking sending S300’s to syria after the last attack? only now they are talking about restoring syria’s AD system? perhaps they should have acted up right away on there thought back then rather than last minute,less im wrong and they have been but they certainly have not sent the S300 unless they have secretly? always such confusion on this s**t,i saw a vid by RT in 2013 claming Assad just recieved a batch of S300’s and then claims countering it back n forth
