Pentagon Is Concerned About Results Of Syria Strike, Prepares To Launch Internal Probe - Sources

A day after the US-led attack on Syria, the suspicion run deep in the public over the results of the massive missile strike carried out by the US, the UK and France.

The Pentagon says that 105 cruise missiles were launched at 3 targets in Syria adding and all of them hit their targets.

The Russian Defense Ministry says that 71 missiles were intecepted adding that there were 8 targets of the US-UK-French missiles strike.

Since April 14, SouthFront has been receiving indications that the US military leadership is concered over the results of its military action.

Informed sources close to the Pentagon say that the US military is about to launch an internal probe in order to get a true picture of the situation, a real number of missiles, which had hit their targets, the reasons behind a minor damage delivered by the strike and the explanations how the Syrian Air Defense Forces had been able to intercept a part of the missiles using their old-fashioned air defense systems.

The Pentagon’s statement that all the 105 missiles hit their targets raises eyebrows because videos showing at least a few missile interceptions are available online.

For example:

It’s also hard to expect the Russian Defense Minsitry, which is under a cosntant media pressure from the Western MSM, may have made a stunning statement about the 71 missile interceptions without an obtained confirmation. [For example, tracking data from Syrian and Russian radar systems]

On April 14, SouthFront noted questionable results of the US-UK-French missile strike on Syria, pointing out that the 71 interceptions could be a result of the employment of Russian state-of-the-art electronic warfare (EW) systems.

On April 15, former head of the Armaments Department of the Russian Defense Ministry Colonel General Anatoliy Sitnov supported this EW warfare impact version in own remarsk to the Russian TV channel Tsargrad.

            OK, please show us proof that any ABM works using a missile shot down at night. Iron Dome, Saudi’s Patriot missiles. What does a “true intercept” look like? I want to see. From all of these “non-propaganda front” outlets you worship (what an idiotic comment, it’s all propaganda, Western MSM being worst of all, even worse than China’s.)

          • World_Eye

            Yes that’s what I said but he is SILENT…I guess he watches MOVIES a lot. This intercept are not as the Sci-Fi movies that’s why he don’t believe anything. He is a just another US prick.

            LoL really man. Thank you American or Brit or what Zionist what are you, give me an example what should I see or watch my news from, where, CNN, FOX,SKY NEWS, BBC.I did I watch and see all aspects, but in those MSM I only see what they want me to see, one sided story, I do prefer SF because It is independent source and tells both sides of the story.

            I work on S-125 NEVA as CO for over two decades, and I had several launches of the latest rocket for this system – 5V27U.
            Several video clips clearly show the launch of a rocket from the S-125 system – a booster for 0.5 seconds, separating the booster, starting and operating the main engine and guiding the rocket to the target. Based on the trajectory of the flight of the rocket, it is clearly visible which guidance type for missile is selected (there are few types, and you find it by yourself).

          • David Gray

            Cool answer !! And the truth !!

            “Serious outlets” lol. You poor brainwashed fool. Go eat some more blue-pills.

      • World_Eye

        And the US want’s a probe because 0 interceptions was made right, and learn to spell and write on english please.

      • You can call me Al

        Hey troll, go file your nose and please STFU, idiot.

      • NWOD

        You make a valid point, but all ABM interceptions look like this. The Saudi ones, the Israeli ones. Here’s an interesting video about the Israeli ones:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDc9E2i7SzY

        What do you expect to see in a night sky 10 miles away? You can’t see the Tomahawk missiles at all, either before or after the “fireworks” (and there’s a “live feed” from Ruptly that captured the Damascus sky through the entire night, sure you can find it).

        I think the success of the intercepts is aptly demonstrated by the lack of damage. Yes they took out one cancer treatment facility they targeted with 70 missiles, but even that one was not completely destroyed (despite $150 million in missiles fired at it).

        • World_Eye

          Mate you don’t have to explain yourself to the Harmoni guy, if he believes that it’s cool it is his opinion.

          • NWOD

            Understood, sometimes though one might get the idea the whole point of comment boards is to debate and exchange opinions. But you are somewhat correct, some people are truly trolls and exist only to serve evil, not to learn. Clearly “Bird of Prey” is of that nature.

          • World_Eye

            Yes that’s what I wanted to say to you, I know that guy he is a troll, only comes to SF, actually he is always here, in which is strange, even he starts to drain the intel on war from here, which is bizarre from a guy that supports the US, UK and France in their war polices.

      • John Whitehot

        wrong. The second is a solid hit.

        • World_Eye

          There were a lot of hits.

        54s – 57s

    • Starlight

      On the night, the number of ground bursts in Damascus could be counted- and the number matched the Russian claim of the actual warheads that got through. But Putin today is back on his knees grovelling to the West (see the sickening Arab League story across kremlin outlets), so America is kicking Russia hard full in the face once again, with new sanctions on Monday.

  • World_Eye

    “Oh yea we successfully hit all targets, oh yea and none of your missiles were intercepted by the regime to our knowledge”, stupid general and the mad dog Mattis said this, they didn’t believe that they miserable Tomahawks can’t be intercepted LOL man, and they were by old soviet S-75s,S-125 and S-200, now Russia will consider give/sell S-300 to Syria, I don’t even know why the hell they listen to you for not giving Syria a good air-defense sistems.So stick the investigation probe back in your ass…

    • Starlight

      So troll- why does Russia only CONSIDER giving s-300 systems to Syria- I’d like an explanation.

      Russia does not CONSIDER giving the vastly better s-400 to all the wahhabi states- it actually does sell them NOW- I’d like an explanation.

      And troll, Russia also admited at the same time that they NEVER provided the s-300 to Iran, as we were told they had. I’d like an explanation.

      • World_Eye

        Did you watch the briefing of the Russian MOD, if not then watch it, years back the Russia was considering supply an S-300 air-defense system to Syria, but the US was no no no, and Russia back down, they didn’t sold them, and 1 note, no one gives nothing for free, it is an arms sell, everyone is buying if someone is selling. Russia only for now consider to sell S-400 to Turkey by 2020 that’s one and only deal that Russia made, the Saudis went to Putin and they talk a lot of stuff, in which the saudi wahhabis mentioned in their visit that they would want to purchase the S-400 air-defense from them. But no one gave them answer that they will sell them the weapon. As for Iran Russia supplied and sold S-300 to Iran years back, and to Greece too, if you don’t believe you can check a lot of stuff online though. Iran now has only one air defense and that is the S-300. Russia sells the Air Defense don’t just GIVE to someone for free. The S-400 are currently the strongest Air-Defense system in the world and its production is very expensive, why would they give and S-300 or S-400 to anyone without money. Russia is not the red crescent.

        • 1691

          You don’t owe him an explanation. He does not deserve one. The lowest of the low! Ignore him.

          • World_Eye

            There are too many idiots here mate you are right, but I didn’t mind to explain as he wanted explanation. But I guess explanations are not for everyone.

          • FlorianGeyer

            I blocked Starlight weeks ago.

        • NWOD

          I don’t get selling S-400 to Turkey. They will surely give it to US/Israel to reverse-engineer, both to make similar system and to find weaknesses.

          I realize export version is not as good as domestic version but there are many similarities.

          • World_Eye

            No one can get to those trust me.Who has it will not risk someone to come and just analize them and do stuff on them, but in the end they can do what they want. Well, as I mentioned up there, Greece has the S-300 so if they want such a thing they can reverse them but still locked versions are exactly for that reason. But you can’t break the Neo-Zionist spirit, they think that they have the best from the best in the world, as the Patriot Boomerang Air-Defense. If you ask yourself why i called the Patriot Air-Missile Defense like that (Boomerang ) is because of the latest, Saudi developments, they shoot and the missile comes back to them, they shoot again the missile explode in air, this was when the Houthis were launching some ballistic missiles at the wahhabists.

          • NWOD

            I actually thought the boomerang was done on purpose, but it’s hard to be sure.

          • World_Eye

            No really, scroll down to some of the little older articles of SF, like a week ago, and you will find the one when Patriot missiles were used to intercept Houthis ballistic missiles and you will see what I am talking about In the video.

          • NWOD

            I know what you’re talking about, I noticed it the night it happened and tweeted about it. https://twitter.com/SonnenTanzer/status/978098672473788416

            My point was it’s not clear to me it was not meant to do that. Like they wanted to hit some inconsequential target to scare Saudis into supporting the (unpopular) Yemen war.

          • World_Eye

            No the point is that the Patriot Air Defense sucks mate.

          • NWOD

            I got your point the first time, but you seem still not to get my point after three attempts: it’s not clear to me that it wasn’t intentional. If you have proof it was an accident, please provide it, otherwise, admit you don’t know, you are speculating it was an accident.

          • Tudor Miron

            It doesn’t look like an intentional action. If you suggest that “they wanted to hit some inconsequential target to scare Saudis into supporting the (unpopular) Yemen war.” Than it didn’t work very well did it? All the word was laughing :)

            Jokes aside, creating a useless (and even unproductive) false flag by making a mim – 104a what it deed on purpose is a very complicated task.

          • NWOD

            The world was laughing because the entire launch until impact was caught on video. Otherwise the world wouldn’t have been any wiser.

            Why is it complicated to have a missile hit a target? If it wasn’t an actual target, why did the missile actually detonate? The missile should not detonate if it hits something prior to its target.

            Finally, as per my question above, is it a coincidence that of all the people in Riyadh who were injured, it was Egyptians, whom Saudis consider trash? No Saudi was hurt in this exercise. Just sayin’.

            I’m not saying I have proof definitive. But neither do you. I’m saying it’s an open question.

          • Tudor Miron

            Fair enough. But trust me that to feed to an air to air missile a ground target near its launcher requires some serious software work. All I’m pointing out is that they created a very complicated stunt in order to do what exactly? Are there a simpler and more reliable ways to achieve this supposed objective?

          • NWOD

            “Serious software work” – really? Why is that? I am a software engineer, please explain to me. Do you know the software for the Patriot missile system, what are its constraints, how difficult it is to override them? Why doesn’t it make sense to have the capability to use this missile to hit, say, a tank, if a tank is endangering your missile launcher? It actually seems quite logical to me, so, please explain why I am wrong.

          • Tudor Miron

            Good and I’m a race engineer/designer. Software is not my realm but I know enough to realize that first one needs to be able to read initial code and than know what to write in and means to do that.
            Do you know that there’s a bit of difference between air to air and air to ground radar workings? For example Su-27 can not use guided air to ground weapons. F-15C can not but F-15E can. That’s oversimlification but it does reflect what I’m talking about.
            Main point – you’re yet to answer what was their objective? Than we can talk.

          • NWOD

            By the way the reason it is logical to hypothesize it was a deliberate “boomerang” is that the Saudis claimed there were some injuries from the Yemeni missiles. But this is the only missile I could find that impacted and blew up, so it seemed that this missile caused the injuries and is what was blamed on the Yemenis.

            And the obvious reason to blame Yemenis is to make people support the war against Yemen.

            Don’t you find it interesting that in all of Riyadh, the injuries were to Egyptians, whom the Saudis hate? That’s some mighty big “coincidence” – or was it a “boomerang”?

          • John Whitehot

            surface to air missiles aren’t like software that you can crack.

            stop listening to pentagon bullshit, modern systems are made that even if the enemy puts its hand on some it can’t reliably find a way to render them useless.

          • Tudor Miron

            Boomerang :) that was a good one.

          • Tudor Miron

            Selling such weapon to a country means that you enter into military-industrial complex of that country.You start to cooperate there.
            Turkish whore will surely sell everything to nato buddies but… Look, its not that simple. Americans have RD180 in their hands for many years yet they can’t do them. Look in the long run – what Russia is offering (strategical direction) is good for Turkey. Erdogans come and go, but we’re interested that Turkey doesn’t at list do what she always did for centuries – fight with Russia on behalf of UK and/or France. Yes, UK always (lets say from 15th century) enjoyed others fighting for them. Goyim killing goyim is their favorite game. There’s nothing new about daesh/queda sh$t – irregular armed forces were always used by anglo-zio scum.

      • John Whitehot

        “Russia also admited at the same time that they NEVER provided the s-300 to Iran, as we were told they had. I’d like an explanation”

        So you outright invent news now, that is the desperation at tel-aviv.
        Iranian S-300s have been even photographed in parades, in addition of pictures showing their inside control rooms with radar screens on.

      • AJ

        Iran has the S300 – google it. Russia finally delivered it back in 2016. They initially refused because of the UN sanctions against Iran – when these were lifted as part of the nuclear deal the contract could be completed.

        I thought you were up to date on the issues.

        • NWOD

          Sorry, but that is quite disingenuous: “They initially refused because of the UN sanctions against Iran”. It was Russia that approved those sanctions. They could have vetoed or put as a condition of approval to except these shipments.

          That was Medvedev as President and Putin criticized him for it (as well for approving the Libyan resolution that led to the destruction of Libya), but nonetheless, Russia back-stabbed Iran in that case, there is absolutely no doubt.

          • AJ

            Whatever the background to the deal that fact is Iran is now in possession of the S300 but Russia did play a big part in delaying the whole contract

        • World_Eye

          Nope mate many people are not up-to date for nothing.

      • Tudor Miron

        Some one call the ambulance! This creature is seriosly overdozed.
        Jokes aside, I always wanted to hear the proposition. In case you mange to convince someone (set your imagination free) that Putin is main zionist of them all. Than :)
        What do you propose? What should Russia do? Who should be considered the good guy?
        Let it out creature :)

    I originally wondered how much money was wasted on this useless exercise (100million?) but it wasn’t useless, it gave the US an idea of how successful an attack like this would be on Russia or China in the case of war. Not good news for the US.

    • Starlight

      How curious. A TROLL with no concern about the BREAKING NEWS of massive new sanctions hitting Russia this Monday. No concern at the admission by Russia that they operate under ORDERS from Washington as to whom they may sell the s-300 to (that is, no sales allowed to Syria or Iran). No concern about the breaking news that Putin is trying to hand control of Syria to the Arab League- the same AL that ochestrated the wahhabi terror invasion.

      No- our troll is here to tell us all is right with the world.

      • NWOD

        The new sanctions aren’t massive, but more propaganda (designed to insinuate that Russia is involved in the fake or false flag gas attacks).

        You are right that Russia has been reticent to send missiles to countries that are being attacked by the Evil Empire. But I think Putin is buying time as he disentangles the Russian economy from the Evil Empire. Russia is still vulnerable (though far less so than 4 years ago, every year gets better).

        Nothing about Putin handing control of Syrian to anyone. He wants to negotiate a peace with the Arab League. That’s what good leaders to – try to negotiate peace instead of putting all their eggs in the war basket.

        Get a grip, bud.

      • “they operate under ORDERS from Washington as to whom they may sell the s-300 to (that is, no sales allowed to Syria or Iran). ”

      The buildings that US, UK and French morons have targeted if truly there were chemical weapons produced or stored so then this is a henous crime because that would be a disaster for the whole Middle East region because bombing it would spread poisonous and toxic chemicals in the whole environment which would kill thousands and could cause cancer in hundreds of thousands but fortunately there were no chemical weapons. These US, UK and French morons only know crimes they don’t know how to do good things.

    • Rob

      Assad, Putin, Ruhanni and all other Muslim leaders must know Israelis are their main enemy. Coordinating, cooperating and allowing them in your countries is like butchering your own nations and destroying your own countries yourselves.

      Saudis+US+UK+France+ISIS+Al-Qaeds+Boko Haram+SDF+YPG = Israel

      Assad, Putin, Ruhanni and all other Muslim leaders must produce nuclear and chemical weapons and ballistic missiles for Israeli morons. Honestly without Israel this world will be a true paradise.

          Things were quite stable during the Ottoman Empire, which lasted for centuries. Soon as the Evil Empire (UK and France) got their filthy hands on it, all went to hell.

        If a Syrian S-300 shoots down a US, Israeli or Turkish jet it will obviously cause many problems for Russia and particularly Russian people. I know you don’t care about Russian people but Putin does. That’s what makes him a great leader. And you’re attitude, is why nobody in their right mind would recommend you for dog catcher.

          • AM Hants

            Guess Israel, never got the message, that they have lost a few missiles, and an F35 thanks to the old system. Do they want to keep losing their kit, because they cannot handle their neighbours being able to defend themselves?

          • wwinsti

            That’s what so amazing about narrativists. Their lies provide them with cover, so they can lie and keep the charade going as an ignorant populace cheers them on. The pilots of these Israeli aircraft know when they survived a near hit, and in their nightmares every night the mistake that didn’t happen, does happen. The next day during a briefing, an empty seat calls out to them, demands that the lies stop and a human sacrifice be acknowledged. And yet they are sworn to oath under pain of imprisonment that their dead comrade is never acknowledged. This makes the nightmares worse of course. Human frailty alone eventually shatters the narrative, there is a limit to how much loyalty threats and drug dependency can buy. This is why the narrativist is addicted to quick victory- or rather the appearance of total victory. Our next challenge must be in the foreground before the price if our last victory becomes so painfully obvious.

            Most retiring US military pilots are riddled with chemical dependencies incidentally..

          • AM Hants

            I cannot wait to see the Forces of nations, that treat those that serve in the military as no more than cannon fodder, get up and mutiny. Their leaders do not deserve their loyalty and would be the first to cry, scream and have a hissy fit, if the military turned their backs.

As for Iran Russia supplied and sold S-300 to Iran years back, and to Greece too, if you don’t believe you can check a lot of stuff online though. Iran now has only one air defense and that is the S-300. Russia sells the Air Defense don’t just GIVE to someone for free. The S-400 are currently the strongest Air-Defense system in the world and its production is very expensive, why would they give and S-300 or S-400 to anyone without money. Russia is not the red crescent. Oh and one more thing, Russia have 2 different variants of the S-400, there are locked and unlock ones. Turkey will receive locked ones, because it’s still Nato member, you can’t trust the Turks a lot, which means that, whenever Turkey will need more ammo will have to ask it from Russia to deliver it.

        • wwinsti

          Firstly, the Iranians have plenty of air defense systems and can make their own to an extent.

          Secondly, the Turks are demanding production b rights to the missiles, no word if russia will go for it.

          • NWOD

            Production rights require technology details, which Turkey will instantly sell to Israel, US and UK.

          • Jade Zee

            you fools dont have a clue. russia will give the s-300 to Syria because it is in their interests to do so.
            i would not bet on turkey getting the 400’s after cheering the strike…

          • wwinsti

            This is almost certainly the case. Russia just asked Turkey to leave Afrin and they said no. So the Turks are about to lose that sale. Looks like Erdogan is moving back into the NATO sphere, as I’m sure many of us expected.

          • IMHO

            He never left the NATO sphere.
            Notice how Turkey quickly attacked the Kurds and took land in the Syrian controlled territory. They never intended to attack Kurds, as Erdogan said, in the U.S. held territory even though it was supposedly the U.S. arming of the Kurds that drew Erdogan’s ire. This was all just a ruse to expand Turkish control and/or try to instigate an attack by Russia.
            Russia won by pulling all their troops from the Afrin region. Seriously, Russia is beating the U.S. and NATO by not fighting. For now that is.

        • Siegfried

          There weren’t the Russians (aka their SAM-3 missile-systems.) There was a clever Yugoslavian officer (a Hungarian guy but citizen of Yugoslavia, now retired/ in reserve/ and lives in PANCEVO, a few miles East of Beograd) that modified the radar on some SAM-3, modulated them so that the F-117 couldn’t new-modulate its jamming-system so quick, to fit the new frequency. And the F-117 could be seen on the RADAR like the Morning-Star in the sky :)) There was no escape.
          The dirty part is that the US-pilot of the F-117 was the son of from Yugoslavian emigrated parents .. (!)

          Well, once more, it’s proven that every genial idea is simple in fact, but SOMEBODY with brains has to find it out first ;) ….”Evrika !”, so to say…. ..
          The RUSSKIS and the CHINESE immediately got the idea with that SPECIFICALLY modulation and improved their systems. The old SAM-2 for long-ranges & (high-altitudes), S-300 maybe have the modification in them, the S-400 .. for sure ! :))

      “This is what happens when you underestimate your enemy too much…”

      Precisely. This is a common error Americans make and have since post-WWII. We are told our “Wonder Weapons” are nearly invincible and therefore we are invincible which is clearly not true. I’m forever reminded of how our advanced supersonic aircraft armed with guided missiles were supposed to make the dog fight a thing of the past. As we know now, this thinking wasn’t only arrogant but was completely false considering these same advanced aircraft were being downed over the skies of Vietnam by “peasants” flying obsolete subsonic MiG-17s. Another example is the one Tudor Miron presents with the downing of a F-117 over Jugoslavia in 1999. I also believe another was hit a short time later but returned to base. Read the latest on our newest “Wonder weapon”…
      https://warisboring.com/the-f-35-is-a-terrible-fighter-bomber-and-attacker-and-unfit-for-aircraft-carriers/

      The Truth is that men are the ones who win battles, not these gadgets and gizmos they show off to the public to make us feel safe. America relies too much on its technology (of with much is impressive) and this can be exploited. How would the United States military fight a “kinetic war” if, say, our GPS satellites were to be desabled?

      Back to the story though. I have no idea how many missiles the Syrians intercepted, I truly don’t. But I’ve seen video of at least a couple interceptions and a picture that allegedly showed wreckage of a Tomahawk. So, right away this idea that the Syrian Missile Defense Systems intercepted none is a lie. Just a week prior these same systems succesfully intercepted 5 of 8 missiles fired from IAF F-15s over Lebanese airspace and back in February a IAF F-16 was downed by a Syrian S-200 SAM. Furthermore, the story doesn’t make sense. Marine Lt. General Kenneth McKenzie said during a press conference the morning after the attack “77 missiles destroyed the Barzah Research and Development Center. It does not exist anymore.” Who fires 77 missiles against one center? I understand it is a campus and there are multiple buildings but you would think even 30 would be overkill. And he is also wrong, before and after images show that much of this campus is infact still there and only certain portions are damaged. It all just smells fishy and it would not surprise me at all if Syria did infact intercept 71 missiles.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Even 10 missiles is overkill should have been pulverized to dust , but Syria’s live feed proved where those missiles actually went. 8 targets only three hits and a cancellation of 4 in the last wave after Data was collected and Russian Jets scrambled and System back on.

      • TheEvilBlight

        It’s a mix of good soldiers, good industrial support, and good machines.

        The Third Reich had good soldiers and good machines, but not enough industrial support to mechanize more than a handful of units and to keep them going up until Moscow. Then afterwards, they couldn’t keep taking punches, and switching to Wunderwaffe wasn’t helpful either.

        The United States is now a “glass jaw” country, like WW2-era Germany and Japan. We have a antebellum superiority built on combat experience and existing forces, but against a rising power we /might/ find ourselves on the losing end if the other side survives long enough to innovate and evolve, just as the US did entering WW2.

  • leon mc pilibin

      Newer anti-air systems destroyed the most missiles tho. The extremely outdated S-200 didn’t even hit a missile. Just sayin. Still, fantastic job.

  • Joe

    My big question is why those lousy slow subsonic Tomahawk cannot be intercepted by old Soviet era SAM systems that still travel at superonic speed using supersonic old SAM systems?

    It is just tracking systems to track the missiles and those are not rocket science . If US had employed hypersonic and these are brought down then it should warrant investigation.

    As it is , do not insult Russia’s old systems.

    • jerrydrakejr

      Tomahavk is specialized to fly at low altitudes, and the S-125 is specialized to destroy targets at low altitudes and it has not a problem to discover and destroy Tomahavk. On the other hand, the S-75 and S-200 are specialized in defending the territory, and it is a problem for them to discover low-flying targets. For this reason, S-125 has been designed – to patch those holes.

  • Jim Prendergast

    Congratulations to the well trained and organised Syrian Air Defence. Well disciplined use of the Panstir system designed in 1994 took-out 71 of 103 “smart” U.S. missiles. Clearly this is a defensive victory both in relative costs as well as lives and homes saved.
    SAA has made the Pentagon look really inept.

    • World_Eye

      Yes, but pantisr was not involved to my knowledge, you can’t shoot cruise missiles with Pantsir, like stated in many notes they were Jammed by Russians, and they were shoot down, by old Soviet made S-75, S-125 and S-200 air defense. Pantsir is more for very close range of shooting either drones, incoming mortar fire, some projectiles etc.

      • SG

        They can shoot down cruise missiles, anti-radiation air-to-surface, etc targeting missile batteries, which is the main focus of the Pantsir-S1 defending S-400 units.

        • World_Eye

          Well in reality speaking from Russian, Pantsir S-1 Units server to protect the S-400 air defense from small incoming fire, as mortars, drones etc… I am not too sure to what level they can shoot Cruise Missiles, but if you are sure, maybe they can.

      • jerrydrakejr

        Pantsir S-1 and S-125M NEVA have similar operational range: 22 vs 27 km. Neva is not designed to be an independent system. Its specialty is destroying targets at low altitudes, which is the reason for the specific antenna inclination. Neva is there to close holes that make systems with a much larger range.

  • Starlight

    Note how Southfront carefully IGNORES the statement from MI6 front, the SOHR, that 65+ missiles were intercepted.

    Let me ask you ALL a question. Why would SOHR do the kremlin’s work for it? For its entire existence the SOHR (one man in Coventry processing and presenting MI6 military signals intelligence out of Syria) has been bashing Assad and Russia. But on Saturday morning (Brit time), the SOHR, to everyone’s disbelief, confirmed the massive FAIL of the US missile strikes.

    Jaws literally dropped to the ground at the CIA run subReddit that covers the war when SOHR released its statement.

      • Feudalism Victory

        I dont see proof from any side that. Photos and murky video clips aside. And we never will either but later actions will show us whats what.

  • Starlight

    An Analysis:

    On Friday night, totally out-of-sync with ALL the building propaganda, a sudden missile strike was launched- about 100 missiles, 200 short of all the earlier suggestions in the press.

    No french participation, But Britain air launched a number of french manufactured ‘cruise’ missiles.

    US missile strikes from all directions, including bombers that entered Syrian air space in the East (with Russia’s direct permission).

    France had pre-warned Russia of all the intended targets (motivation- to help ensure no Russian casualties).

    A lot of confusion during reports of the attack, but shortly afterwards Russia listed a far wider range of targets than the Pentagon admitted- but targets that matched exactly earlier plans reported in the West press.

    70ish missiles ‘shot’ down. Seemingly more disabled. At least ten getting through, doing the damage at two sites we’ve all seen videos from.

    So on the night, the very moment the pentagon got first analysis of their success (minutes after the last missile was fired), the pentagon IMMEDIATELY warns of coming DISINFO from Russia the following day. What on Earth? Only the FACT that they knew how many missiles failed expains this statement.

    The SOHR, an MI6 front that has been goading us all along, also reports 65+ missiles down. This is IMPOSSIBLE, for the SOHR has the same motivation as the pentagon to lie regardless- yet on this occasion the SOHR not only tells the truth, it does so in a way most of you here would assume damages the USA.

    So what really happened?

    1) No, an ancient soviet era defense system run by Syrian grunts did NOT defeat the yanks
    2) Elite RUSSIAN units, using state-of-the-art systems took on America and Britain
    3) Russia NEVER intended to shoot down all the missiles- if they had done so, things would have massively escalated.
    4) Russia planned a missile BALLET. Missiles aimed at two useless empty installations would be allowed (in a limited number) to pass. Maybe two more targets were allowed a lesser ‘success’. But all other missiles were to be countered.
    5) The Pentagon is not just unhappy so many missiles FAILED, it is a total funk over the ‘ballet’- the precise knowledge the russians had about each missile’s intent, and the way in which the dance was thus choreographed.
    6) trolls on the other side keep saying “where are the remains of the shot down missiles”. Russian has the very best psy-op reasons to gather up those remains and deny public access.

    On the night (when the Pentagon thought their plan was so ‘last moment’, the russians had no time for anything other than safely hiding), the russians were able to demonstrate a terrifying sophistication to the yanks.

    That MI6 chose to have its asset, the SOHR, goad the Pentagon, proves we CANNOT take comfort from the events. War is more than just toys, and how well you use them. War is politics and machinations. Russia’s WIN, and the Pentagon FAIL, is to be weaponised and turned against Russia.

    • Leon Auguste

      Hmm

    • NWOD

      Yes, you can write a nice fiction book with such “analysis”.

      Not to tear the entire story apart, but the whole “ballet” is idiotic. Cruise missiles can fly in circles, they are not like a ballistic missile that during descent follows a mathematical arc (aside from the newer Russian ones, which retain some thrust vectoring controls during the descent stage), Thus it is impossible to tell a cruise missile’s destination from its historical flight pattern.

      What is a much more likely scenario is that after Russia repeatedly threatened to take out the missile launchers, Russia and US agreed that US would shoot a limited number of missiles at non-critical targets and Russia would not shoot them down (but nothing was said about Syria).

      And it’s very plausible that Soviet ABMs took out the cruise missiles. Cruise missiles are by far the easiest target (after drones, I guess) to take out – they travel much lower and slower than the 60s NATO fighter jets these missiles were designed to take out.

    • frankly

      You know I feel really stupid. Read a good bit, was reading when the event last year went off. Yet for the life of me it really makes zero sense. Have yet to read the sentence that ties it all neatly together. To me it only makes sense when I think that Yes Trump is following orders, but he has turned his role into a parody. He’s the PP Parody President.

      He’s pissed at what they have given him to do, so he absolutely overplays every scene, turning it into farce, revealing how absurd the whole show is. What useful purpose to threaten over obvious false flag to such an extreme. Then the military, (do they really want this fight), stage a show to prove all the lies. Why would we do this if it was a lie? Spend a bundle, no one dies and it’s a yuge success!

      As for your posts Dim Wad, You are a dissembler. You have the occasional coherent line, much like SOHR, but your mission is to confuse. It’s not even clear who’s side you are on, both?
      So, and this is good advice for me too, aim for less volume and more logic. Ever since I saw Putin put that drink down in the tent in Chechnya I got him down as the real deal, you however, seem likely to get paid in shekels and never put the drink down.
      My take they are buying time till powerful enough to finish this thing, every day that passes without all out warfare brings us closer to ending the empire.

    • Tudor Miron

      Hard to swallow that your masters weapons do not actually work? Feeling nervous lately? Internal filter didn’t allow to see the obvious?

      • NWOD

        It’s not a question of not working. It’s just a question of not being guaranteed to get through.

        It’s a question of economics. How much does one of the interceptor missiles cost, and how much do actual missiles (along with some decoys) cost?

        Even assuming an even bank account, eventually the attacker will win, because ABMs are very expensive. But the bank account is not even.

        • Tudor Miron

          Wait a minute…Do you suggest that S125 ordnance is more expensive than tomahowk?

          • NWOD

            I don’t know the market price of a V-601. S-400 is over $2 million each (but that includes the launchers, which can be re-used with new missiles, I have not found a per-missile price)..

            Of course Tomahawks are a bit expensive ($1.9M) due to the massive corruption and incompetence in US MIC (mainly massive, massive, massive corruption). Obviously it is far more difficult to build an ABM than a cruise missile. Pentagon is famous for paying $500 for a hammer.

          • Tudor Miron

            No it is not. Cruise missile is far more expensive to design/build than air to air missile. Look, with your S400 example we have 2e6$ for each. Even if we count 4 missiles + launcher than each missile is less than 500k. But we’re not talking the state of the art expensive system. Whats hurting is that s125/200 was enough :) How cheaper do you think they are than s400?

          • NWOD

            S400 is $2M per missile. The cost is $400 million per fire unit (artillery battalion) that consists of 8 launchers, 112 missiles, command and support vehicles. I roughly calculated $2M per missile due to cost of launchers, radars, command and control, etc. but probably it is closer to $3M per missile.

            Cruise missile is VERY simple in comparison. E.g. a Patriot missile (advanced) costs $6M whereas Tomahawk is $1.5 M, so 4 times the cost.

            It’s simple logic. First ABM must go much faster than a cruise missile. Second, even at this much higher speed, it must be much more accurate than a cruise missile.

            The equivalent to a Tomahawk would be a Kalibr, and comparing its cost to an S-400 missile would be more informative as it is comparable MIC. But even Southfront does not know the cost of these :) (https://southfront.org/russian-kalibr-vs-us-tomahawk/).

          • Tudor Miron

            Fair enough and than the cost of S400 missile is comparable to tomahowk. But we’re not talking S400 do we? We’re talking s125/200. Also, you don’t seem to count the difference in cost of deploying and launching a land based AD missile and a naval based cruise missile.
            My point is that Assad spent much less than US did in that strike. Do you argue with that or just want to be right? ;)
            I agree that US pockets are deeper thought.

  • come-and-take-it

    On upgrading the Syrian air defense and US questioning their weapons effectiveness, may I submit the following for your consideration. You may apply it however seems appropriate.

    This contest reminds me of an old joke. “Upon arriving home late from a night out at the pub, an angry housewife demanded an explanation from her very well endowed husband. He admitted there had been a longest dong contest at the pub and needing the money decided to enter. After bidding up the prize money he reluctantly exposed the offensive member to the other contestants and carried home the winnings. The wife’s response was an agonized “you didn’t really show all that to someone did you?” To which he replied, “Only enough to win.”

    The days of US unquestioned dominance in defense technology are “over”.

    • Joe Dirt

      Much had been made about the intensity of the air defense systems in Syria, a combination of Syrian and high-end Russian defense systems. Russian news outlets, as well as social media from the region, had claimed as many as 70 percent of coalition weapons were shot down by Syrian or Russian air defenses.

      But the Russian systems did not attempt to intercept the incoming weaponry, and the Syrian system launched around 40 surface to air missiles after the last targeted weapon hit its target, according to McKenzie.

      Overall, the air defense systems were “remarkably ineffective in all domains,” McKenzie said.

      • come-and-take-it

        No question narratives are biased. My point remains.

  • jj

    Russia needs to give Syria higher caliber anti-aircraft defenses, since it looks like Syrians are mostly on their own when these attacks happen. Yes, Russians are probably giving them warnings, notification or tracking info for the incoming missiles (and maybe some jamming operations too), but it is still up to the Syrian anti-aircraft defense forces to actually shoot them down.

    • frankly

      Given this result no panic. spend the money effectively. US builds profit, Russia builds weapons.

  • SnowCatzor

    Just wait, the truth about this failed attack will eventually come out. But only after most have forgotten about it, as is standard US practice.

    3.07 SA 8 missile exploting( at a distance) in low fly intercepting US missile…

  • RichardD

    All of the older Syrian air defense missile systems still in use have sufficient speed and mechanical steering systems to hit large sub sonic cruise missiles. The original tracking, targeting and guidance electronic systems were probably designed as remove and replace electronics that could be unbolted from the existing mechanical, hydraulic, and electro servo units for maintenance and upgrade.

    Which is probably a contributing factor to the efficacy of the legacy air defense systems in the Syrian inventory against a mass attack. A lot of the legacy systems have been upgraded with improved electronics that are compatible with modern computerized sat net command and control infrastructure.

    • The increased efficience of Syrian missiles are due to the fact that they been joined to the russian air defense network who have combined data from all sources. By joining in this network any syrian SAM system can receive targetting and intercept data from the network handed down to local system , far earlier than if the local SAM radar have to detect it on their own..

      basiclaly any syrian SAM system become a node in the overall air defense , and this is also why syria managed to shoot down israel most modern F16i wih old S200

  • ashley

    I don’t see evidence either way. Those videos don’t prove anything. The interceptor missiles are designed to explode and dispurse fragments to destroy a missile.
    It’s does seem like a small amount of damage for 105 missile strikes but we should of found missile fragments of intercepted missiles if they were brought down.
    Also if EW eliminated many missiles, where are they? They would still landed, most likely in Damascus suburbs.

    • NWOD

      I get it, if there’s not a video on Twitter, it didn’t happen.

      Or do you watch Syrian news and read Syrian newspapers?

  • ashley

    It could of been that in a pre-strike arrangement USA agreed to only hit those 3 targets and Russia/Syria conceeded and allowed them to be hit. This wold of kept all the damage contained to those locations and not brought down cruise missiles in Damascus suburbs, killing hundreds of civilians. If so that is more credit to Assad would put civilians lives ahead of his University and ego.

    • It is precisely that because the number of casualties are non existent , obvious deal going on with the strike and russian threats to escalate are limiting the FUKUS options

  • Joshua Paul

    We did not use antiradar missiles in this strike to avoid hitting Russian radars. It’s not a big problem to hit subsonic missiles with the working radars even for mostly ancient Syrian air defense systems. Some of the missiles were jammed. It was mostly a face-saving exercise.

    Bashar al Assad Regime-Russia-Iran Coalition

    Two Russian Su-24M ‘Fencer’ attack aircraft conducted several low-altitude passes in close proximity to the USS Donald Cook and the French frigate Aquitaine in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea on April 11. The Russian Navy conducted a firing drill off the Syrian coast in a likely attempt to deter U.S. and allied naval maneuvers near Syria on April 11.

    Russia reportedly deployed four Tu-95MS ‘Bear’ and Tu-160M ‘Blackjack’ strategic bombers as well as an unspecified number of Il-78M tanker aircraft from the Engels Air Base in Southern Russia. Their final destination is unknown although they may be bound for Syria or the Hamedan Air Base in Western Iran. Russia previously targeted locations in Eastern Syria from the Engels Air Base.

    Russian and regime forces enhanced the air defenses around Syria’s capital, Damascus, where the regime conducted its chemical weapons attack on April 7. Pro-regime forces deployed short- to medium-range surface-to-air missiles, including six Russian Pantsir-S2s, to the Mezzeh Military Air Base and other sites in Damascus. Pro-regime officials also reportedly issued an alert to the Syrian Arab Army to evacuate personnel and assets from military bases across Syria.

    Regime and Russian aircraft relocated closer to heavily-defended commercial airfields across Syria. Aircraft relocated from the Seen (Sayqal), Dumayr, Shayrat, and the T-4 (Tiyas) Air Bases to the Bassel al Assad International Airport in Latakia Province, the Nayrab Air Base outside Aleppo City, and the Damascus International Airport.

    Iranian proxies, including Lebanese Hezbollah, reportedly began exiting Syria. Hezbollah reportedly relocated a number of fighters from Syria into Lebanon. Hezbollah and other Iranian proxies reportedly also entered Iraq from positions along the Syria-Iraq border, including Abu Kamal in Eastern Syria.

    Unspecified pro-regime elements reportedly evacuated a branch of the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC) in Jamraya near Damascus. The SSRC is a Syrian government body responsible for research and development on advanced weapons systems, including ballistic missiles and chemical weapons.

    I sure hope the 71 shoot downs happened. But I’d like to see evidence thereof. Note that Uncle Sam never claimed to have targeted military airfields, but Russians/Syrians are claiming missiles were launched at several Syrian military airfields but never made it. If Uncle Sam is telling the truth, or mostly telling the truth, I fear for Syria. If targets in Damascus can be struck with impunity then so can most of Syria’s important military assets, unless they are near Russian bases. If most of the missiles made it thru, Russia needs to assist its ally ASAP. Even if Uncle Shumel doesn’t attack again, I believe the Zionist enterprise will continue to attack Iranian and Syrian targets across Syria. These attacks need to be stopped or made very costly.

        Qatar, today the world’s largest exporter of LNG, largely to Asia, wants the same EU market that Iran and Syria eye. For that, they would build pipelines to the Mediterranean. Here is where getting rid of the pro-Iran Assad is essential. In 2009 Qatar approached Bashar al-Assad to propose construction of a gas pipeline from Qatar’s north Field through Syria on to Turkey and to the EU. Assad refused, citing Syria’s long friendly relations with Russia and Gazprom. That refusal combined with the Iran-Iraq-Syria gas pipeline agreement in 2011 ignited the full-scale Saudi and Qatari assault on Assad’s power, financing al Qaeda terrorists, recruits of Jihadist fanatics willing to kill Alawite and Shi’ite “infidels” for $100 a month and a Kalishnikov. The Washington neo-conservative warhawks in and around the Obama White House, along with their allies in the right-wing Netanyahu government, were cheering from the bleachers as Syria went up in flames after spring 2011.

    manufacturing company for military nerve agents. The factory like this is built
    in uninhabited area, far from the big cities with hundred thousand of people…my
    personal remark, most of cruise missiles were intercepted in military areas,
    strongly protected by air defense system, like military airports. The strong damage
    were cased in area with weak air defense system, like research center close to
    Damascus. But all this is the same probe for Syria/Russia military officials

    Maybe they should launch an anal probe into Drumpf’s butt to figure out how he could be so stupid?

    Questions should be asked is.. as to why the need of 76 missiles for 3 empty suspected chemicals buildings that did nothing in terms of damages compared to the state of the destructions done by 4-8 israhell missiles recently.. lol..?

    Washington, and Washington alone, is responsible for the war in Syria……………

    Concerned?! I’ll be they were choking on their champagne and screaming “What the hell just happened?!?” The US and it’s lackeys have underestimated Syria every day for SEVEN YEARS and haven’t learned a thing, having bombs means nothing if there are no brains to go with them.

    Have you guys still remember of what Putin said ” I will arm US enemy soon if US continue to its provocative action.”

    1 March 2018 – ‘ Youd did not listen to us, now you will listen’ – guess the Pentagon, forgot to switch on their hearing aid, when President Putin was talking. That is what happens when you outsource 80% of your intelligence agencies, to those that know little, where intelligence is concerned.

  • The Pentagon should be very concerned…..
    If Russia has missiles they can’t shoot down and old Soviet technology can down 70% of current missiles (incl their fancy news JSSM’s) fired on Syria then… they have no MAD deterrent.

    You’re either stealthy or naked, never both. F-35 appears as small bird on radar. Can view entire battlefield from 200 mile radius.
