Russia Deploys S-350E Medium-Range Surface-To-Air Missile System In Syria – Media

Donate

Russia has deployed a state-of-the-art S-350E medium-range surface-to-air missile system, the Russian pro-government media outlet Rusvesna reported on Thursday citing a military source.

According to the report, the system arrived Syria’s port of Tartus in September and then was deployed in the Masyaf area in Hama province. The newly deployed system was allegedly included in the integrated, multi-layer, air defense network that Russia had emplaced in the country.

Rusvesna also provided a photo that was intented to confirm deployment of the system in Styria:

The S-350E Vityaz is a highly mobile defense system. It can carry up to 12 vertically launched missiles. The system is developed to provide point defense against precision attacks and defense suppression weapons.

Such deployment could be possible because Russia tests various weapons systems in Syria on a cosntant basis. However, a photo provided by Rusvesna does not look like it has been made in Masyaf [It’s a mountaneous area].

    Its to shot down cruise missile as Pantsir has short range ( 20km) and S-350 ( 120km)!

    • John Whitehot

      you can’t shoot down cruise missiles from far away, the radar LOS is limited by the earth curvature.

      • Manuel Flores Escobar

        if the missile has Via-track-guide semiactive and active homing radar can be guide to the cruise missile!..of course satellite( not radar) detect cruise missile..then launch towards the target( SRH)and finally active radar homing can track cruise missile even if its are flying low!..the question is that I think only S-400 have active radar homing inside the Missile!

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Pantsir is mobile and meant that way to be effective.

  • Solomon Krupacek

    export version? the stupid variant???

    • John Whitehot

      there is no export version. The S-350 was developed jointly with South Korea to provide a medium range system for both countries. Please note that the AESA radar is a Russian design, Samsung did not participate in its construction.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        E means export

        • John Whitehot

          In this case it doesn’t. There aren’t other versions with other letters. It could be they put the “E” because it’s a joint development.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            OK

  • Jesus

    S-350 beefs up existing Russian surface to air defenses, maximum range of their long range missile is 120kms, being deployed in central Syria augments air defenses and provides rapid fire to any attacking targets. A battalion of 8 vehicles/ launchers can fire a total 96 missiles before reloads. It is possible S350 along with S400 will be deployed around Deir Ezzor as well.

    • You can call me Al

      I don’t know if you have seen this today, but Israel attacked Damascus airport. I think it is time for a true no fly zone for the US and its allies.

      Thanks for the comment by the way, interesting stuff.

      • Rafik Chauhan

        Israel bastard use lebnon airspace to attack Syria. the only thing saa can do is to take permission from lebnon to shoot siraeli jets or lebnon get anti aircraft missile on the border. bcuz it has become to much now

        • Wahid Algiers

          Take the zionists down over Lebanon and don’ t ask them. The Lebanon never protested that its air space was violated by filthy zios.

          • wwinsti

            Interestingly enough, a Lebanese representative just lodged a compliant against Israeli airspace violations yesterday.

        • You can call me Al

          Absolutely agree, but this allegedly was two flights that crossed into Syria…..

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      Israel decided to test out if the S-350 system works against Israeli craft at all. Turns out it does not work either. Benjamin called a dinner party tonight to celebrate yet more Russian top tech proved useless in all regards against Israeli invasion.
      S-400 = Failed: S-300 = Failed: S-350 = Failed:
      General tells Benjamin that the way is clear for Israel to bomb Moscow anytime they want to, to teach Russians not to dare oppose Zionist global ambitions of cleansing the earth of Goyim’s.
      General says a single Israeli plane can fly all the way to Moscow unopposed and make it safely back as Russia has nothing that works against Israeli aircraft.
      The world laughs at the mockery Russia is making at herself.

      • Thegr8rambino

        If Syrian air defenses can down Israeli aircraft, what makes u think the latest Russian ones can’t??

        • FlorianGeyer

          That’s rather a good point. War is all about timing and when the time is right any Israeli aggression will be met by force of arms.
          All the Zionists are attempting to do by baiting Syria is to get a violent response so that the Western Media can declare ” We must all show solidarity with Israel and the poor persecuted Jews, they have suffered enough ALREADY “. :)

      • John Whitehot

        lolololol

      • wwinsti

        Can you explain why Israeli aircraft rarely leave the safety of Lebanon’s airspace? Whether I like it or not, the tactic would appear to give the IAF some handy mountains to hide behind should shooting begin. If the air defenses are as useless as you claim, shouldn’t there be another reason?

  • MD Ranix

    the russian led coalition looks like getting ready for an impending showdown with the satanists .. hopefully with the help from iraq and turkey too

    • John Brown

      The kurds are totally surrounded by enemies who will close all their land borders and airspace and I suspect declare a no fly zone for the USSA and it racist supremacist master Israel over all of Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran. With no ISIS to justify their invasion even the most stupid Goyim in the USA will understand that Israel and the USSA government are ISIS and Al Qaeda.

    • wwinsti

      This is an excellent point you have made. The Russians appear to loathe unilateral action, and only use force when all the various partners are on board and fully informed.

  • Admiral_Moorer_believed

    Love it. The S400 forces planes down to lower altitudes where they can be taken out by the Pansir. . .

    I am guessing that the Syrian Government is going to declare a “No Fly Zone” over syria for all non invited aircraft soon. . .

    • Dustil schmit

      Israel just bombed an airport tonight fyi.

      • Admiral_Moorer_believed

        Patience.

      • Charlie rad

        do you have a link ? can’t find , even in Israeli news. Thanx

        • You can call me Al
          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            They shot down a drone near Quinetra, Israel is putting on a display of military hardware, they should give UNDOF full authority to take down Israel planes and any acts of aggression.

          • Graeme Rymill

            UNDOF is a UN multinational observer formation. There are around 700 observers including currently a 130 man Irish infantry unit as the ready reaction force for self defence.

            The idea that such a unit would be converted into a force trained and authorised to shoot down aircraft over the Golan is laughable. A typical fantasy of Field Marshall Terra Cotta Woolpuller.

          • You can call me Al

            I had to look UNDOF up as I had never heard of it before = United Nations Disengagement Observer Force ….. anyway, there is no point, the UN is just another US puppet.

            Just shoot them down.

      • Charlie rad
      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Hate to disappoint you but no real damage and it was shot down over Quinetra.

  • DJ Double D

    We need to be able to hear that any of all these air defense weapons has shot down an intruding flying object. Just now, Israel is MERCILESSLY attacking Damascus international airport. This is ridiculous. Whatever is not destroyed in Syria during war combat is being destroyed unprovoked. What type of agreement is that between Russia and Israel that Russia should keep a blind eye on all these?

    • John Whitehot

      yeah, mercilessly. yawn and lol.

  • Chris Assad

    It is not mountainous in the North and Northeast of Masiaf.

  • DJ Double D
    • Solomon Krupacek

      and is helpful?

      • DJ Double D

        Didn’t see that it helped so far. It may be a waste of time. Israel never seem to care less.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          i wonder, what will think out moscow to normalize the situation with israel. they will attack, and also the new missile factory will be target, which is under cover of russian air defense.

          • John Whitehot

            i will dismantle your propaganda again.
            russian air defense covers russian forces and that’s it.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            the same told i, you cock

  • Kell

    Looks like flat desert out East somewhere id say in proximity to Deir Ezzor.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Myasaf it was sent there and more than a few came to Syria and they have been using the Tosca-O is Syria they have some of those also. The T-90s with defense against infrared missiles they are really stepping up the equipment 11-12 ships so far.

  • Kell
    • Solomon Krupacek

      shoot missileas also worth 3 million to shot down little drone?

      • Kell

        Looks like an S200, dont know how many they have (old missile) or wether they knew they were drones but yeah a bit of a waste but that depends on the value of what they were targeting, the new pantsir with the smaller drone missles would be ideal – an old S200 is still cheaper than a patriot Israel used by magnitudes.

        • FlorianGeyer

          The old S200’s were paid for long ago and essentially those that are not used will in time be scrapped anyway.

  • Thegr8rambino

    Verybgood hope it downs many enemy aircraft :)))

  • John Whitehot

    so there was a drone.
    Somehow I get the impression they never left Lebanese airspace again. Perhaps they used ballistic missiles? So far I couldn’t find any info on the means of the attack, on targets and possible victims.

  • hvaiallverden

    Yup, an qujon always hide behind others, you will never see them in the front line, what is all tho remarkable about qujons is their ability to appear different when its just talk, talk is cheep, cost nothing, does nothing, other then create weird sound bytes, apart from that, nothing, and some people have that built into their psyche, the Yankikes is one thing, the pathetic military thinking and way of conducting is even worse, an fascistic neo-faudal night mare, is more correct, by violence, and the Joos treatment of the Palestinians, witch is so deprived of morale and justice, I am amazed that this is not debated, never, debated, the facts, children shoot multiple times in the f…. back, with an high powered sniper file they make their day shooting children and the scums ion the west drools about Humanity.

    Yeah, but again, the risks of evolving senarious, not nesesery by the parts but the western MSMs and Political whores would scream on top of their lungs about neglecting suverenity, yeah,, the scums knows no shame, so to shoot down anything in an third parts airspace is largely out of the question unless of course the third part agrees upon the defenders questions and its ramifications, when it comes to shoot something down, and I know they are been shoot down, several times, and some events arent widely debated since it implys Russians have shit you dont even know how it works,, and missiles you dont have, the only thing you do have is an lot of cannon fodder and military shit, where you dumped the decades old crap on your “allies”, yeah, the butt f… of the century.

    You have simply not seen anything yet, period.
    That may change, that depends upon a freak running the WH in the district of Criminals in the imperial banana republic Ameristan.
    And now turning into an Bolshevik wet dream, the UssA.
    Hallelujah, what an show, the downfall of an empire.

    Popcorn’s anyone.

    peace
