On September 27, the Russian Khmeimim airbase in Syria was targeted with a drone. According to the official statement by the Russian military, the drone launched by militants in Greater Idlib was shot down by the defense systems of the military base.

No victims or material damage were reported as a result of the failed attack.

“There are no victims or material damage as a result of the incident. The Russian Khmeimim airbase is functioning as planned, ” Rear Admiral Vadim Kulit, deputy head of the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, claimed on September 27.

Rear Admiral Vadim Kulit added that the drone was launched from the territory unde the militants’ control in the Idlib de-escalation zone. It was detected at half past twelve by the air defense systems in the Russian Khmeimim airbase.

The drone was downed by the Russian Pantsir-S air defense system.

Footage showing the UAV is yet to be released.

The drone attack may be a response to the regular air strikes that are carried out by the Russian Aerospace forces (VKS) on the militants’ positions over the Syria’s Idlib.

On September 26th , Russian air strikes on the Turkish-occupied area of Afrin claimed the lives of 11 Turkish-backed militants. On the previous day, the VKS conducted a series of raids on Afrin in response to an attack by Turkish-backed militants on a SAA post located to the south of the occupied area. Several militants from the al-Shamiya Front were reportedly killed.

In response, Turkish-backed militants in northeastern Syria opened fire on two Russian military helicopters which were patrolling over the region.

The situation in Syria’s Idlib is escalating as the Presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, are going to discuss the Syrian issue during their meeting on September 29th in Russia’s city of Sochi.

Why are South Front articles not being refused by Facebook in the UK? Is this a case of Mark Zuckerberg’s censorship, or a technical glitch 🤔!

Super…the SA-22 are the best…

farbat

no system is the best and no system on its own does work well and its always saturation of different systems which works well so dont praise one single system as highly as you people do because its an absurd thing to do

farbat

since the beginning of air defense the concept that always works best is high saturation and high variety of “angles” or different methods so to say which means that s400 on its own with the variety of systems that exist in this sort of package is still not enough in the slightest there are way to few close in weapon systems far to few radars and basically its working well as a mobile system but for static defenses its not as good as looking at a whole bigger spectrum of methods systems etc pp

farbat

something like this shilka tanks towers still work very well so yes russia loves to put everything on these expensive chassis but it at the same time fails to offer for example good radars to such systems many of such systems still dont have thermo optical sensory and generally they are lacking behind which is why russia brought forward more modern systems to chestpuff with but it should do the smart approach and create a more saturated a2ad over the region to not even allow birds through if they dont want it

CIAisis lost another toy, how sad…
