BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 P.M.) – A new video released on Friday showed the Turkish military and their allied militants attempting to hit a Russian aircraft with an anti-aircraft missile in the Idlib Governorate yesterday.

In the short video, the Turkish forces and their allies militants can be seen on the roof of a building, where they later attempted to shoot down the Russian aircraft in the skies of the Idlib Governorate.

As shown in the video, however, the anti-aircraft missile fails to hit the Russian aircraft that had just flown over their positions in what is presumably the eastern countryside of Idlib.

Prior to the release of this video, another film was released on Thursday that showed the militant forces in the Idlib Governorate trying to shoot down a Russian Su-24 aircraft that had just got done bombing their positions.

Below is the video that was released on Friday of the attempted downing of the Russian aircraft:

Using ManPADS against aircraft flying over 15,000ft is void from the start : most of ManPADS have a 10,000-12,000ft ceiling, only Stinger can reach 15,000ft…
No surprise ALL MALE UCAV operate over 18,000ft.
For anything flying over 15,000ft, you need some “serious” SAM battery.

Su-24 has inbuilt Electronic Countermeasure for SAM’s, pilot has to use combination of maneuvering, flares, chaffes and ECM to dodge a patriot SAM.
But more importantly, RAF shud send in decoy drones to find exact location and range of SAMs to destroy them with BVRAM like Kh-59MK2, but Idk Su-24 has a radar ground range of over 150 km
