BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – A Russian air defense crew was able to break the record for accuracy during a field exercise this year, the Sputnik News Agency reported.

According to the publication Russian crew operating the S-400 air defense system reportedly hit all targets with its first missile barrage.

They reported that 51 targets were observed, and 63 guided missiles were fired, the BMPD site reported, who quoted data from the Russian Ministry of Defense.

All targets were shot down by the first missile. The number of missiles exceeded the number of targets explaining that a second missile firing was to eliminate the remnants of the targets.

In a real battle, three missiles are also fired at important targets – for reliability.

Armenia has no S-400, moreover, you need SHORAD defences to protect such assets which are designed to intercept ballistic threats and aircraft, not toy kamikaze drones, artillery etc… In Hmeimim, Russian S-400 is protected by OSA and Pantsir. Same c**p if you don’t network with an AWACS : you won’t detect low altitude threats…

And if you don’t detect a F-16 carrying AGM-88 HARM at 150km, your battery will end into troubles. Building a flawless air defence system is a very complex task. At the present day, the best you can get is by mixing French-Italian, German-Swiss and Israeli systems.
