On August 13th, almost all major Israeli news outlets, almost simultaneously, began publishing articles with statistics on Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Air Force operations over the last 5 years.
Although the Air Force carries out quite a few airstrikes in the Gaza Strip, apparently all the statistics provided are focused in the north and are mostly covert. They are ones for which Israel didn’t take responsibility, such as hitting alleged Iranian targets in Syria, and attempts to hinder the alleged transfer of weapons from Iran to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
The statistics include:
- Over the past 5 years (2015-2020), the Air Force has used about 5,000 units of aviation weapons “in all theaters”, incl. over the past 3 years (i.e., from mid-2017, but mainly from the beginning of 2018, when truly active operations began), 955 targets were attacked, on which 4,239 bombs and missiles were used, including dozens of strikes by F-35I fighter jets;
- Since 2017, Syria has fired 873 anti-aircraft missiles, incl. 844 over the last 3 years, i.e. since mid-2017, mainly missiles of the SA-17 (Buk-M2E) and SA-22 (Pantsir-S1) complexes; for comparison – in 2013 – only 2 missiles were fired;
- Over the past 2 years (and mainly in open operations, i.e. such as when Israel took responsibility, usually in response to terrorist attacks or shelling of Israeli territory), the Air Force destroyed a third of the Syrian air defense systems;
- The number of operations has skyrocketed over the past year, despite the coronavirus epidemic;
- 70% of the pilots who participated in these operations are reservists.
In parallel, the Air Force also notes the enemy’s response.
So, there is an exchange of information about the actions of the Israeli Air Force and the conclusions drawn from them.
Syria buys new radars and new air defense systems, incl. Russian S-300 missile defense systems.
The Air Force confirms that Syria manages to shoot down some of the bombs and missiles launched by Israel, but only one plane was lost – the F-16I in 2018.
In addition, two videos have been published. One shows a flight at extremely low altitude, the other a refueling in the air of a F-15I fighter jet at night.
MORE ON THE TOPIC:
And the pathetic Zionist cunts have achieved FUCKALL!
How many times have missiles been launched at Israel since 2015? Seems to me the Paper Tiger of Iran merely ‘talks the talk’ … eh?
How much damage have those IDF missiles caused their enemy?
5000 x 1 million USD … No wonder the US is running on paper fiat. Money printer go brrrrrr ….
YOU sound Jewish? or Scottish ? lol
What damage / havoc have those missiles caused Iran/Iran’s proxies in Syria and the PMU?
Seems Hezbollah was upset about one of theirs getting killed by one of these missiles … eh?
Please don’t insult me. My ancestors are of Imperial Rome. We created Palestine.
Penurious … was the Scottish reference … hello?
Romans doesn’t mean Italian … lol
BTW … nobody gets out alive
…….. and did virtually zero strategic damage to their opponents. What a yawn.
Iran begins large-scale modernization of T-72 tanks
Iran has begun the large-scale modernization of the over 1,000 Russian T-72S tanks. Work is underway in the Tank and Heavy Mechanical Plant in the area of the city of Doroud (Lorestan Governorate) tomodernize these tanks, as the Iranian Armed Forces continue to strengthen their forces.
The Minister of Defense, Major General Amir Hatami, recently visited the military facility and was briefed on the ongoing work progress.
As shown in the photos published by the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), the tanks were equipped with new towers with a higher level of protection.New turret, FCS, protection, remote controlled machinegun, looks like laser warning sensors etc.
Dynamic protection is also installed. On the front of the hull, special horizontal armor plates are placed, which, when hitting the tank with ammunition, do not allow the adjacent elements of the “reactive armor” to operate in the idle position.
Deep upgrade of Iranian T-72 tanks up to as T-90 Karrar standard on Bani Hashim Industrial Complex in Dorud. New turret, FCS, protection, remote controlled machinegun, and
laser warning sensors etc.
The tank is equipped with a new target designation system, in which, in addition to daytime optical technology, there is a night thermal imaging channel. Left from the T-72S tank is a 1K13 “Neman”, which is used to guide Tondar anti-tank missiles, a clone of the Russian 9M119M missile.
The turret is equipped with a remotely controlled 12.7 mm machine gun and the tanks are equipped with a diesel engine with a power of up to 1000hp and NBC protection. Iran is also producing the T-90 Karrar striker at a rate of 50 per month.
Wow … an Mullah on the keyboard … those ‘tanks’ along with other ‘hypersonic’ missiles have yet to be seen or produced …
There’s a Kornet for each and every one of your Merkava mobile ziofag coffins.
Don’t ask for something that you will regret, one Merkava tank shell can take down 30 of their guys in one hit.
One Hezbollah ninja can take down a whole merkava shitcan.
Proven in 2006.
Proved they can die like rats, with only 10K IDF troops which is a small number for us.
They still roasted your merkava shitcan.
They hit dozens, but destroyed only 5. That is how strong the Merkava is – a 65T monster, now even more with the active protection system. Go cry in the corner.
5 ? I thought the merkava was invincible ? And they got whole 5? The weekend part timers called Hezbollah took down 5 of ‘god’s Chariots’ ?
Man, your butt must really hurt. Use lube.
“Hezbollah countered IDF armor through the use of sophisticated Iranian-made anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs). According to Merkava tank program administration, 52 Merkava main battle tanks were damaged (45 of them by different kinds of ATGM), missiles penetrated 22 tanks, but only 5 tanks were destroyed, one of them by an improvised explosive device (IED). The Merkava tanks that were penetrated were predominantly Mark II and Mark III models, but five Mark IVs were also penetrated. All but two of these tanks were rebuilt and returned to service.”
Great job Hezbollah and Iran!
And an ied too … So that means an IED is all that’s needed to take out a Merkava?
Remember: If you can take out 5, you can take out 50.
They got lucky, it happens from time to time when they get confused till we show them who’s the boss around.
If you think 5 in a row is luck, you’re dumber than I thought.
if you can KILL 50 Hezbollah slugs … 50,000 is your next goal
Remember … if you can KILL 50 idf roaches … 50,000 is your next goal
The death toll will be egregious in the next war …
200,000 Dead Lebanese in the first 72 hrs ….
You pretenders lost, understand ? You Godless pretend Jews lost, and it was strategic. That is what matters. To a militia, you bunch of deliberate pathological liars always skim over bits of fact that not so flattering to your glorified, and totally fake narratives to stroke your giant size ego’s. And, IDF, attacking with everything it’s got, air power, armor, infantry all kind of weapons, against a militia, and losing, just isn’t flattering to your arrogant alleged views. I can see how that would deflate your inflated ego like a balloon someone over inflated then released it. Your ego took off at high speed bouncing around the house crashing into everything just a flyin’, and a Gettin’, leaving a trail broken knick-knacks until now deflated falls to the floor like a used condom. Reminds you that you got a little dick. It will be all right, that false flag attack you just blundered in Lebanon you know the one demonstrates the fake State of Israel is by definition a terrorist organization. Attacking civilian infrastructure, and civilians, and with a weapon of mass destruction is the ultimate act of terror. An extra special crime against humanity. This should be hitting the news,before you can re-inflate that big, fat, stupid ego. What excuses have you got lined up to troll us on this criminal activity ? You know Hezbollah is coming for you, and the militia is angry. The matching respponse could easily destroy the fake State of Israe’ls ability to defend itself. Or, it’s ability to wage war. That would be interesting, don’t you think ?
TROPHY APS … developed since 2006
Works like a charm … don’t want to harm those boys in the tank … eh?
Today they’re ALL equipped with the Trophy APS … lol
You know what trophies are for, right?
wow…a dirty stinking stupid yew on the keyboard….
And if those neighbours dare respond in self defense, the Jews will weep aggression as they bludgeons them some more!
The Zionists and the US are not having a good week, the Lebanese Supreme Court inquiry into Hariri assassination absolved Hezbollah of any responsibility or involvement. It also looks like a CIA/Mossad hit like the recent explosion.
Absolved? YOU LIE
Let the accused Hezbollah slugs be put in the cells at the ICC … a little interrogation to get them to talk and rat out their bosses
It wasn’t the Lebanese Supreme Court … lol.
YOUR accusation of CIA/Mossad is bs … lol
Pathetic little troll
It was mossad. Hezbollah hacked your drones and got the evidence:
pathetic Hezbollah plant …
The Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), the United Nations-backed tribunal responsible for prosecuting the perpetrators of a terrorist attack that assassinated former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and twenty-one other people on February 14, 2005, has announced its long-awaited verdict. Fifteen years later, the tribunal found “no evidence” that the leadership of the US-designated militant group Hezbollah or the Syrian government were behind the assassination.
No evidence? LIAR
YOU’RE a Hezbollah dog … that’s clear … flea bag
They have to fly away from Syrian airspace flying low and launch long range cruise missile Delilah to avoid BUK and Pantsir..its ok to destroy warehouse but not to provide close support to Israeli troops in case of war or to destroy heavy Bunkers…none of the many Bunkers in Al Kiswah have been destroyed!..yo can see it in Google earth.
Not to mention the captured Popeye and Delilah missiles that have given the Iranians a intelligence bonanza.
Any proof of your assertion ?
So …. just bs
Before you ask for proof, learn basic logic.
YOU with the logic again … sheesh are you a maths wiz or a jerk off?
The SAA and Iranians have also downed a Zionist F-16 and a birdstrike crippled a F-35, a pretty high price to pay for hitting a few sand huts.
The SA-2 that downed the F-16 was deemed pilot error after investigation so 1 kill … but 5000 missiles hit the IRGC/Hezbollah/Shia Brigades since 2015
BTW … Israel ‘took out’ a bunch of anti-missile systems the ONLY time the paper tiger attempted to fire directly at Israel’s Golan … eh?
Israel isn’t complaining about the F-35 … specifically designed for their needs … hello?
As a matter of fact, the UAE / SA would want the plane as well but can’t get their hands on it …
All downed IAF birds are ‘pilot error’.
(“Pilot Error” = “got shot down by the enemy”)
The SA-2 is a 1970’s issue air defence system … that’s EASILY jammed but the Pilot erred … eh?
I hear he’s flying for Mahan Air … lol
ONLY carrying passengers … Right or Wrong? lol
Not sure what you’re babbling about. Care to repeat in clear concise english?
How many IDF airplanes have been downed by Syria during the Civil War? lol
Is that what your garbled post was meant to say?
Very criminals but fortunately very great incompetents, full of anger and arrogance, since they pretend to be local and that the post in question is in Asia, the next Nuremberg will be held especially for them in Asia, they will not get away like many others Nazi and Japanese war criminals who have had a blast in U$A, South America and undercover in €urope, the times are coming.
Syria is more than justified in retaliating, not necessarily proportionally. They should get more Iranian AA equipment.
This clearly shows where the real aggression is coming from. The alleged threat from Iran in Syria towards Israel is imaginary, a pretext for these ongoing strikes. You can count on your hand how many attacks have come from Syria the other way.
EXACTLY … proving that Iran is a paper tiger
Israel is a paper tiger. All you can fight are women, children, old folks and third world basket cases.
Mungiyeh Sr & Jr … Samir Kuntar in Damascus … lol
Under a true patriotic leader we would have launched 50,000 missiles at out enemies, plus 2 ground operations to give them the final blow. Bibi the traitor has stopped the IDF many times, including now vs Hamas. He will rot in jail for everything he has done, Yair Lapid will take charge soon.
Hush Stupid CUNT!
and that should give the world a clear idea who it is that has to go – the jews in palestine of course.
If the numbers are correct, this means BUK-M1/M2E, Pantsir-S1E and KUB are having a hard time locking onto big nose missiles. Also Idf electronic jamming can severely disrupt the passive phased array radar designs for these systems. Also a major lack of modern early warning radars prevent SAA from getting a heads up. instead they use 1950’s EW radars which can be easily jammed. Turkey even used their KORAL to jam Syrian pantsir radar which was prone due to passive phased radar design. Much cheaper and easier to make pesa, but not reliable and easy to jam and confuse.
Solution: -Syria needs plenty short range SAM with active phased array radars AESA -Syria needs plenty early warning EW radars like JY-27 with AESA design -With new SHORT range aesa SAM and lots of advanced early warning radar, the interception rate against idf attacks would increase dramatically
YOUR information is interesting but Syria is bankrupt …
Israel was morally bankrupt right at the beginning, because it’s a criminal fake state.
yo mama is a failed state.
thieving yew, holocaust happened. and will happen again.
yomama is yo dads sista.
Morally … but they’re sexually satisfied … eh?
Cuz they get to f/k their Arab enemies ANYTIME without lubrication …
Obviously. But if Iran or China want to be generous and give them AD as part of a long term contract plan of investment instead of paying upfront, that could work
Without Hezbollah / Iran / Shia Brigades still in Syria … maybe
Nah … bad idea … Assad is sure to pull some stunt
Until then, Russia controls S-300 and syria at best gets to intercept some cruise missiles… …others make it through and hit buildings or wharehouses…no strategic change at all after 5000 airstrikes…cycle repeats
nothing gained lol…next
WTF do you know ?
The attacks have disrupted the Missiles being sent through Syria … the IRGC is on the back foot … there’s been NO NEED to kill people … yet
Your rage entices me :) you really think that tho? strikes haven’t changed anything but take out a dozen syrian sam pieces, a chinese radar and some wharehouses/buildings over the years. Hasn’t changed situation at all on ground, still has a prescence and there’s still lots of missiles stored there.
Good job, wasting US taxpayer money.
So … Iran is playing possum? lol
Cuz … their GPS missiles fired at Iranian targets are certainly blowing up ‘real good’ … eh?
It’s definitely affecting the Iranians who are beside themselves having wasted THEIR $$$ on missiles et al that are now twisted pieces of metal … eh?
The Mullahs pleading with Russia to do something … lol
The Mullahs want to bring their ‘own’ ‘Iranian-made’ Anti-Missile Systems to Syria … as if they won’t be targeted as they’re set up … eh?
Israel will do as it needs to do to remain one step ahead of their adversaries …
Count on it …
and yet the situation has not changed. still a huge presence on the ground. not going anywhere. and time will come when they set up their own widespread AD network
That network will be attacked upon recognition of its being assembled … hello?
Israel will NOT wait … Offence is the best Defence
and yet it still exists all over the country and the situation hasn’t changed. remember the only reason you get to launch ur strikes is solely because of Russia. They can intercept your strikes with their airforce or shoot your jets down all the way from Latakia whenever they feel like, but politics :)
Russia … attacking the IDF? LMAO
Whenever they feel like it? LMAO
Why would Russia do that? The IDF is attacking Iran/Hezbollah/Shia Brigades NOT Syria’s Assad … hello?
That was the deal … up and until Assad uses his own military to attack the IDF … in which case the gloves come off and Assad’s military get attacked … hello?
Israel’s capabilities are best in the Middle East … no one should attempt to attack Israel on pain of being destroyed …. full stop
The S-400 is a piece of scrap metal … the Russians want to sell them but if activated against the IDF it would be vaporized … Putin doesn’t need the grief …. he wants to sell his ‘stuff’ to the World
Stick to poisoning your own People … slug
wow stoked some nerves there. It’s hard to accept such a dependent nation like yours would get demolished by the Russians if they ever chose so
Ya slavic sh Xt head … why? For what?
haha just facts. you’d get destroyed easily. iron nose or davi’d schlong wouldn’t save you.
Israel is a welfare queen. Were it not for sugar daddy Uncle Sam, israel would not have a bank to be bankrupt with.
Stop crying loser.
Oh look it’s the village idiot.
About to make yourself look stupid again?
I can outsmart you on any test, so no I don’t have 50 IQ like you.
You never have on this site. You always lose.
Always want to win … I see
Teenage exuberance … you’ll know your place soon enough
OK … but they do have the USA as an ally
So … what’s YOUR point? lol
5000 Missiles and shit to show for it ? What a waste of American tax-payer money …
What has Iran done to respond to the damage they’ve received?
Sitting on their hands in the corner? lol
Where did Israel ever strike Iran? All israel has done is bomb weak states already under siege … I’ve not heard of a single missile strike on the territory of Iran from Israel.
Iran has outposts in Syria / Iraq / Lebanon … they’ve been struck multiple times over the years … lol
The vile Iranian Police State uses proxies … when the Israelis detect that Iran is going for a nuclear breakout … they’ll be hit in the Iranian Homeland …
Try gain. lol
Lies and yet more lies. Oh well it’s genetic.
You’ve veen hitting decoys for years and calling them Iranians to make yourself happy. Other times bombing civilians and SAA outposts.
But never have you had the balls to strike Iran.
Promises, promises ROTFL!
Denial … is the first stage of acceptance
When the Mossad has detected that Iran is going for a break out to a Nuke … that’s the time … until then Lebanon/Syria are the battlefields … eh?
Everything in good time …
Denial … is a river in Africa.
See? I can make meaningless statements just like you.
Iran probably has nuke capability for years. They’re laughing at you and your colonial pals debating it when they already have.
Seriously, even third world “shitholes” like Pakistan and NK have nukes … You think Iran doesn’t already have them?
Cobalt diffusion bombs. At minimum, low tech nukes can be assembled without going for full fusion.
They’re incapable of acquiring the ability … needing NK for help with ballistic missiles … lol
The Mossad will know when ..
That’s so neighbly.
