    Now if only the Russians supply some S300’s ASAP. And more Pantsirs. I reckon the latter would have the greatest short term impact as Pantsir is already in use with the SAA, so they don’t need to integrate a completely new system.

    • Rob

      Syrian and their allies should not confess to US and UK that they don’t have chemical weapons. This is weakness. Tell them yes we have chemecal, biological and nuclear weapons and ICBM to deter them. Then US, UK and France will never attack Syria. Be smart. US and UK have forced Saddam and Qazzafi both to confess that they have no WMDs and when they have confessed that they have no WMDs, so then the US and UK have decided that this is good time to attack.

        The line underneath looks sorta cool

    • Rob

      US, UK and France have destroyed the strategic balance and stability in the Eastern Europe and in the Middle East. If a country has no S300, nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and short, medium and ICBM missiles then that country is a favorite country for US, UK and France to enjoy their stay there.

      Putin should have to provide to Syria at least enough S300 and Pantsir-S1, smart bombs and guided missiles to preserve the strategic balance. Putin could produce their weapons in Syria to reduce the logestic cost. In Syria the labour cost is low and raw materials are available. Strong Syria is good for the Russian security.

    Very good, but what the Syrian air defence need are
    S-300 missiles. But here is a point for consideration and comment.
    The Iranians claim to have developed a system with the same
    capabilities as the S-300. It is called the Bavar
    373. I don’t know if this system actually exists in a useable form.
    But if it does then the question is why are they not in Syria?

    Just too indulge me flustration for a moment I do find the Iranians rather
    too full of talk and not action.

    • Drogba

      Why would they Iranian forces give away their tactics to the zionists? Actions speak louder than words.Where are the israhellI jets that were flying around Syria until very recently?Think about it.

      • paul ( original )

        I suspect that the Isrealis keep out of Syria to avoid the S-200 which
        they have. Instread they say over Lebanon and use stand off weapons.
        If the Syrians had S-300 or Bavar 373 they they would not even be
        able to do that, which is why I think it would be a good idea.

        • al quaida

          Excuse my ignorance, but why doesn’t Lebanon shoot down the Israelis when they do that?

          • That Guy

            Lebanon has no air defence systems and no air-to-air systems.

          • paul ( original )

            That is my understanding also.

    • Martijn Van Grambeke

      Never underestimate the Iranians. They are masters in diplomacy and militarily… they do a lot behind the scenes. Results are the only things that matter.

      • paul ( original )

        You could be correct. None of us know that much of what goes on behind the scenes, For me good result would mean a lot of downed enemy planes. I don’t see this and may be it is too much to hope for.

    • whatsmolly

      Well it was really predictable they would attempt cloning the s 300 because they do with all other usable tech and at the time Russia gave then the systems iran possessed no capable cruise missles, much less a cuise missles that can hit a high speed target in the air. And just missle tech in general, Iran never had a good targeting computer, the accuracy of even their ballistic missles had alot to be desired. If they can clone that targeting computer then it can be applied to alot of different missles .

    • Rob

      Assad, Putin, Rouhani 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

      Make nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and ballistic missiles for Israeli morons because without Israel this world will be a true paradise.

    • Rob

      Iran need to test their equipments in live combat to know its capabilities and to remove any issue in their missiles. This is a great chance for Iran.

  • gs1710

    the staff is older in my age but that´s not bad. they know their system and what tey are doing :)
    interesting qustion is how Syria managed to upgrade the old systems in order to intercept the cuise missiles. experts say that normally with the ols systems they should have been able to hit only 15-25% of the cuise missiles. perhaps someone can tell me.

    • Bob

      Russian’s have been actively updating the older Syrian legacy Soviet systems – integrating and networking them. In all likelihood Russian’s used their advanced electronic jamming systems in background on incoming NATO missiles. Electronic jamming can throw out the missile’s internal guidance systems, that are activated when in close range to their designated target, and jamming also slows missiles down – interference scrubs some speed off incoming missiles and that makes for easier ground to air targets.

  • RichardD

    What’s important is not only do the Syrians have capable air defense systems, but that they’re capable of using them at a high level of efficacy in real life circumstances.

    • FlorianGeyer

      And with all the ‘ on the job ‘ training the Syrian skills can only improve.

  • alexis

    Excellent video. The World public can see, what US can expected from
    Syria Air Defense system. Syria has fully equipped Air Def Command, digitalized
    with modern control and targets tracking radars, they have all needed information
    for fight with “predators”. This is the secret of Syria success during last US/West
    attack. They were able to down many dozens of cruise missiles. I am coming from
    NATO member country, but in my country is not the Air Defence System like this…

      Very comprehensive. The most important one missed in this list was the invasion of federal troops into Pennsylvania in 1791 during the Whiskey Rebellion. This was the “war” that allowed Alexander Hamilton and Robert Morris to bring the new American Republic into the choke-hold of the international banking cabal…. and ALL wars are bankers wars. Every American war since have been the result of this action, and yes George Washington was the man who ordered the troops to invade.

      about 20 million killed by freedom loving USA

    That’s good but sooner or later you have to have the ability to counter strike.

    Washington forces its allies to accept a bipolar world
    by Thierry Meyssan

    By firing missiles on Syria with its French and British allies, the strange President Donald Trump has managed to force the Western powers to accept the end of their unilateral domination of the world. The insignificant result of this demonstration of force drags NATO back to reality. Without having made use of its weapons, Russia now succeeds the Soviet Union in the balance of world power.

    Over the last few weeks, and for the first time in their history, the United States and Russia have mutually threatened one another with a World War. The totally disproportionate character of the crisis in terms of the subject of the dispute demonstrates that what is at stake here today no longer has any connection with what has been happening in the Greater Middle East since 2001, but exclusively with an attempt to maintain the current World Order.

    After the gigantic massacre of millions of people over seventeen years, from Afghanistan to Libya, the manner in which about fifty people in East Ghouta (Syria) are said to have died seems almost ridiculous. And yet on 14 April, this was the pretext chosen by Washington, Paris and London to launch a three-party aerial attack.

    Let’s avoid getting distracted by the circumstances, and get straight to the heart of the matter – the Western powers are attempting to maintain their domination over the rest of the world, while Russia and China are breaking free of it.

    The President of the United States, Donald Trump, did not hesitate to tweet to Russia that he was going to fire missiles of a new generation on its soldiers in Syria. The Russian ambassador, Alexander Zasypkine, immediately responded that these missiles would be intercepted and the planes and ships that fired them would be destroyed. The Turkish Prime Minister, Binali Yıldırım, expressed his astonishment at this « street brawl » and called the participants to reason. All of the actors then began to back-pedal.

    The naval group of the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman left its base in Norfolk, apparently to take position facing Syria. It will take several weeks before it is operational. The question of the confrontation between the United States and Russia, in other words the Third World War, will then be raised again.

    It goes without saying that the preparation of this naval unit and its 6,500 soldiers began well before the affair of the Ghouta which serves as a pretext for its deployment.

    The question is therefore to understand whether, by firing a deluge of missiles on a few abandoned buildings, Washington and its allies have postponed the confrontation in order to occupy a more efficient position, or, on the contrary, have given up on direct warfare and are preparing for a new form of conflict.

    The result of the bombing on 14 April is astonishing – 103 missiles are said to have been fired by the Allies. 71 of these are said to have been destroyed in flight by Syria. A decommissioned military laboratory was apparently destroyed, and the installations of two aerodromes were damaged. This deluge of fire allegedly wounded only three people and killed none. If Donald Trump, Emmanuel Macron and Theresa May had intended to show their power, they in fact showed themselves to be powerless.

    Seen from Damascus, the message was clear – Syria is in the process of freeing itself from the jihadists, but will not enjoy peace for all that, and will not be able to count on any help from the West for its reconstruction.

    The Allies pretend that Syria kept stocks of chemical weapons, despite its membership of the Convention which prohibits them. They claim that they targeted only areas linked to these weapons. And yet, for example, they fired four missiles at the international commercial airport in Damascus, an exclusively civilian target. Happily, the Syrian Arab Army managed to intercept them all.

    In total, the Syrian Arab Army, which was only in possession of S-125’s, S-200’s, Buk’s, Kvadrat’s and Osa’s, managed, single-handed, to shoot down two thirds of the Western projectiles. Finally, despite themselves, the Allies had just fought the first battle of their history in which they killed not one enemy. France, which tested its new naval Cruise missile for the first time in a combat situation, was unable to boast of a success to its potential clients.

    Of course, the Allies limited themselves. They carefully avoided hitting Russian or Iranian targets, and these two states did not participate in the operation. Nonetheless, the Western armada no longer has the capacity to impose its will on middle powers as long as they are protected by Russia.

    Everyone has understood that, as from now :
    – the United States and Russia – just as in earlier times the USA and the USSR – will refrain from any direct confrontation in order to avoid nuclear war ;
    – and that the middle powers allied with Russia will not be significantly damaged by the West.
    – The only military superiority possessed by Washington, London and Paris resides in their capacity to manipulate armed groups and use them as proxies.

    By bringing France and the United Kingdom into the fray, President Trump has forced them to accept the reality they were refusing to see.

    This grand show, then, was no more than a futile gesture. After a quarter of a century of unilateral domination by the West, its three main military powers have just been down-graded. The world has returned to a bipolar situation like that of the Cold War, although the new rules still need to be defined. The Third World War will have to wait.

      “Everyone has understood that, as from now : the United States and Russia – just as in earlier times the USA and the USSR – will refrain from any direct confrontation in order to avoid nuclear war ;” –
      Not true, only Russia will try to avoid nuclear war. The US -NATO arrogantly believe that the balance of power is tilted in their favour and wouldn’t hesitate to launch a Nuclear attack on any nation – The US still remains the ONLY nation that nuked civilians at least half a dozen times (Hiroshima, Nagasaki,Basra 1991, …). If the US can buy guarantees from Nuclear power Nato nations for a nuke attack on the Ruskies, WW3 is on.
