BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:25 P.M.) – A U.S. jet attempted to deceive the Syrian and Russian air defenses while flying along the Syrian-Jordanian border recently, the Russian site Avia.Pro reported on Tuesday.

According to the Avia.Pro report, a U.S. Air Force jet flew within 5 kilometers of the Syrian border while masking itself as a civilian airliner.

According to the information provided by Avia.Pro, the data transmitted by the aircraft’s systems were artificially replaced, with the result being that the jet’s radars displayed it as a small civilian vessel.

Despite the absence of violation of the border of the Syrian Arab Republic, experts regard this incident as an attempt to test the Syrian and Russian air defense systems, the publication added.

“As a rule, much less attention is paid to private civil aircraft, in connection with which, the American military aircraft almost certainly tried to evaluate the performance of the Syrian and Russian air defense systems. A similar case was observed at the Russian military Airbase “Hmeimim”, when an American military reconnaissance aircraft replaced the identification data with a civilian passenger plane from a South American country,” a military expert told Avia.Pro.

The U.S. currently has aircraft, mostly helicopters, inside of Syria, with almost all of them being deployed in the northern part of the country.

They really should consider replacing their legacy fighters by Rafale… we don’t have such needs : S-400 can’t even see a Rafale from further than 15-20km and with the F4 upgrade, radars won’t see them at all… Moreover, even if some other means, like passive radars ended able to perform a detection, you can saturate them with hundreds of ghost echoes 🙂

S-500 S-600 S-700 already exist…. I promise you, they may not be set to fire but they are observing…so all Isreal and the US are doing is helping them build S-800

I don’t think the advance air defense has to even leave the black sea to hit anything protecting Syria, next up Russian attack choppers

lol possible the most retarded comment ever made. S-400 was designed to detect and engage stealth aircrafts at up to 120km. Big Bird 96L6 can detect F-22 at 50km and F-35 at 100km.

“even if some other means, like passive radars ended able to perform a detection, you can saturate them with hundreds of ghost echoes” ==> and the beauty of such radars is that they can saturate you and your ECM pods along with HARM missiles with hundreds of dummy emission and break lock like crazy every time you think you’re holding something solid. That is why the Pentagon today publicly admits the only next-generation jammers that can supposedly take on S-400 class of radars exit only in one place : paper. That’s also another charm of modern frequency agility and polymorphic… Read more »
