Russian specialists are re-equipping S-300PM air defense missile systems delivered to Syria into S-300PMU-2 ‘Favorit’ complexes for their local operation, a source in military and diplomatic circles told TASS on Friday.

“In October, three battalions of S-300PM systems and their ammunition load were delivered to Syria. Later, a regimental command post was brought to the country. All the hardware makes part of the S-300PM equipment set, except for the reconnaissance and air target detection radar of the regiment’s command post, which is part of the S-300PM-2,” the source said.

“Technical specialists of Russian defense enterprises who arrived after that started work to re-equip S-300PM into S-300-PMU-2 systems,” the source said.

This work largely relates to “replacing Russian codes and letter frequencies of the ground interrogator and the letter frequencies of the radar for Syrian versions,” the source explained.

“The Russian specialists will complete their work in late October, after which they will return home,” the source said.

The agreement to deliver S-300 surface-to-air missile systems to Syria was signed back in 2010 but was later put on hold. On September 24, 2018, after the loss of Russia’s Il-20 reconnaissance plane in Syria, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that Russia would transfer S-300 systems to the Syrian armed forces to enhance their combat potential. On October 2, Shoigu told Putin that the S-300s had been deployed to Syria.

I wonder if that is anyhow related to news that USAF and IAF are training on Ukrainian S-300 systems…

So what if they train ? The Ukrainian Nazi regime has an outdated version anyway.

They already trained on Egyptian S-300V4 which is more recent than PMU-2.
It’s more about having IFF working on both SyAAF and VKS (RuAF) at the same time.

No matter whatever study whoever is going to do, the fact of the matter is who will want to be the 1st genie pig to take on the S300s and lose their baalls?

S300 have completely stopped the air raids ha ha..salute to the Russians. Checkmate. It is gonna be a difficult task for both now.
