On October 4, an unidentified aerial target was intercepted near Hmeimim Air Base by Russian air defense systems.

According to the reports by the local Jableh News agency, at least one target, likely a drone, was shot down over the town of Jableh in the Syrian province of Latakia. The air defense system actuation at the Russian Khmeimim airbase was reported.

The attack attempt took place at the moment when a USAF RC-135U was circling around 50km from the Russian base.

The RC-135U is specifically configured to gather electronic and signals intelligence, with a particular focus on collecting data regarding adversaries’ radars and air defense networking nodes.

This type of aircraft collects information about electronic signatures to help commanders build so-called “electronic orders of battle” detailing the disposition of an opponent’s air defenses. This includes detecting and classifying threat emitters, and pinpointing their locations, among other electronic intelligence-gathering capabilities.

The US reconnaissance aircraft was spotted over the Syrian coast for the second day in a row. It was flying over the Hmeimim airfield and the Russian naval base in Tartus, having made about 18 flight circles.

A week ago, on September 27, the Russian Hmeimim airbase in Syria was targeted with another drone launched by militants in Greater Idlib. It was intercepted by the Russian Pantsir-S air defense system.

Militant attacks on Russian facilities in Syria do not go unpunished. The Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) and the Syrian Arab Army continue to strike at militant positions in Greater Idlib.

Early in the morning of October 4, SAA artillery units targeted militant positions near the city of Kabani in the north of Latakia province. A harsh response of the VKS is likely to follow in the coming hours.

If i understand the article Syrian airspace violated? if so why was the aircraft not shot down?

Daniel

Russian are nice guys,

TopGum

You misunderstood. Syrian airspace was not violated. It seems the US military is responsible for sending drones in the direction of the Russian airbase to collect data how exactly they defend themselves. We do not know if the Russian side is aware of those spy planes and if they somehow can disrupt their spy work. But it indicates, that US does not know much about Russian air defense technologies. They loose hegemony everywhere.

jens holm

USA dont do that at all. You are manipulated to relate those drones to USA. It indicates You are totally wrong about it.

USA has no plans at all for attcking that base. they also know enough about the random Russian defence systems there. And they do send in drones to attack some of the jihadists.

I can only think on one more possibility. The Russian do test weapons there. Maybee the try to refind their Armata too :)

TopGum

Yes, that is why exactly at the same time the spy plane was there. All just a big coincidence. You can believe whatever makes you happy. I rather base my analysis in support of obvious facts.

Jens Assholm

Nooo, they don’t do that at all. They are sooo nice. Keep kneeling and keep sucking Yankee butts you pathetic bitch-sIave, always trying to be more american than americans themselves you brainIess EU-nuch gay wh’ore. Suck it!

Z

North Korea shot down the US spy plane back in 1969. killing ​all​ ​31​ ​crew​ ​members and the US did nothing at all. NK also captured their spy ship USS Pueblo, it’s still in Pyongyang on display.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1969_EC-121_shootdown_incident

jens holm

They were not. USA never will make that kind of risk. The writer made a mistake.

Putting it with drones from somewhere else makes it infected too.

hailu

Syrian Air space is not violated. The plane is flying 50 kilometers from Syrian border. Even if it flies in Syrian air space it will not be shot down. American planes always do that. There is an agreement not to attack American asset.

Selbstdenker

i would have scramled two fighter jets to shaddow the plane and practise interceptions

Daniel

Well, first you have to win highest election in Russia,

jens holm

Ha ha – he would be a Put in :)

Zutrov

Me too, jets should have intercepted the American spy plane and forced it far away

Dicksonrp

Nope… Nope.. Nope… THEY SHOULD SHOOT IT DOWN!!! Then all the zio American and isrealhell irrations stops.

jens holm

Sure and Damaskus would be nuked into a lake.

There are no irrations even You disagree. You have no patent in having oppinions and this one is worse then naive.

jens holm

Thats my observation from far distance as well.

To many here act like sheep or goats eating everything served for them. No brain is involved. Very low random knowledge even about the dirt USA, Turkey and we as Nato and EU do or do not.

They are not allowed. They are not raised to be alloewed to know. Reforms in its best are going back in time 100 years.

If it dont, they go back being told the Khalifat was a State of happiness, but it was a permanent hard killer og own citicens too.

Jens Assholm

Monkey, no one give a fck for you worthless ‘observations’, hallucinations and your worthless existence in general.

TopGum

Yes, like the US nuking those bad Iranians when they took over their drones or shot that expensive one lately. The US, as every other country owning nukes, has no legal framework to use nukes on someone, if they are not directly attacked on their mainland.
Loosing a spy plane while it is snooping on a provoked defense reaction would be merely a face loosing scenario for the US. They spying alone shows already how clueless and helpless they are if it comes to Russian air defenses. That is why they fear and also why they sanction every country that buys them. It just makes their whole air force obsolete in the face of a military conflict. Their navy is already outdated and mostly sitting ducks waiting to be sunk by any anti-ship missile system. Those things today do hyper-speeds and are unstoppable.

Jens Assholm

Shithead, they need one or two nukes to sink stinky Denmark into the Baltic &North see. But then you gay rats will soon be extinct anyway…

jens holm

Sure. Look for some help in Your childcare center. If You are lost take a taxi. They know.

TopGum

They maybe used electronic warfare to disrupt their work. But it seems they just stayed cool and did not bother with the spy plane. They know best what to do.

jens holm

I know. If You instead was an American President as Trump, You probatly would send in 50, so nott all could be shot down.

Its madness to propose, what you do. None want some escalation there. You instead should send some greetings to USA for retreating back to half of Syria.

TopGum

The US is openly occupying and robbing a foreign county under the disguise of fighting terrorism. There are no greetings for that. They took over the oil rich areas as the Syrians with the help of the Russian air force knocked out most of their moderate terrorists. They fled Afghanistan already like beaten dogs. They even publicly murdered innocent people and got caught. They loose ground everywhere. The number of governments that stand by them is getting smaller. People have a different opinion on the US government already. They are mostly a joke. Trump already crippled their economy with that trade standoff. Biden will crack down the social structures with his insane pandemic mandates. The end is near.

A.H.

Send a big airplane and provoke a turbulence so that the yankee spy plane fells in the sea. Putin is playing a dirty game. If Iran was securing the sky off Syria, all terrorist planes were downed without a warning !

TopGum

The spy plane did not violate Syrian airspace. Nothing to shoot down there. They just provoked Russian air defense to collect data on how the hell they detected and shoot that thing out of the sky. The still can’t comprehend how much better the Russian hardware is.

jens holm

Most iranian airforce is a flying museum. Turkey alone with their many even old F16s can handle them even many will be shot down by missiles.

They also cant operate there in long distance having no facilities.

What the F do You think we are. You probatly as too often are manipulated to own big strengh and We are sitting ducks.

TopGum

I think he did not have the Iranian air force in mind. He rather refers to their air defense capabilities.
It will take some time to build up those structures. Israel is actively disrupting those activities. It won’t last though. Sooner or later their planes attacking those structures will be shot down. They already have to evade the Syrian air defenses. Everyone can see that Israel doesn’t like that. Their advantage on this matter is closing slowly. At some point they will cease all their activities. Then it will be either go to war with Syria/Iran or shut the f**k up. And shut the f**k up they will. Otherwise they would go to war instantly, as they still have the military advantage. But they know that they would suffer their consequences too.

Putin the poodle

america is getting ready to destro the base and russia itself when china attacks taiwan because russia betrayed the entire white race by siding with the little peepee yellow man

TopGum

America couldn’t even airlift its own people when they fled Afghanistan. They will also stay idle and cry should China have the urge to invade Taiwan. But guess what? They won’t. They will surely reunite but not by taking Taiwan, but by shoving out the US-influence out of the area. They will reunite when people are ready and willing to, not because some leaders tell them to. Taiwan leaders can talk much about defending the Island. But when no one will show up to do what they order them to, they will see that all of this was nothing but an self delusional house of cards.
People in my country voted on a new government. 76% voted, one party got 26%. That means that whatever they do, this government only speaks for about 20% of the population. That also means that the rest, consisting of whole 80%, did not even wanted them there in the first place. Same everywhere in a so called democracy. We are being ruled by a minority that will never speak for the majority of the population.

jens holm

You arte highly incorrest. Denmark is working very well because we parle in the parlament. 60.000 dollar in GDP as well. No masks. And A in economy.

Selbstdenker

The US will not do anything. Nowadays all their bases in Asia and Indian Ocean are under threat from China. like their base in Djibuti, which was supposed to secure logistics through the red sea and Suez channel was rendered useless, when China build a bigger base close by. US hegemony is over already.

jens holm

Those 2 bases are important for Russia but very small and unimportant for us as Nato.

Russia is not siding with China. China is making neocolonialisme in Russia for minerals and some small market there. Russia has no choise. The do nothing to devellop themself.

Most socalled whites not even live in Russia. Thye only has betrayed their own people by replacing very bad Tzarrisme with Groucho Marx & Co.

NATO aircraft usually have cringeworthy callsigns but this is just the most fitting i’ve ever seen.
Dumb, fat, incompetent, impotent, bald, ugly but exceptional alcoholics desperately try to stay relevant and “threatening”.
Their intel won’t save the hords in Idlib anyway.

jens holm

Ha ha. I dont see fat :)

Jens Assholm

You see fat Yankee dick down your throat… stop screaming here you brainIess moronic monkey and go worship your American masters someplace else.

JC Denton

I see it (its you)

After so many years in Syria, I am fairly certain the Russians have learned all the american/zionist ploys.

They could probably remote land the rc-135 at a destination of their choosing if they wanted to. Typical Eastern restraint.

jens holm

Its more like non stupidity they dont.

hmm

no idea what you saying, something about your stupidity I guess

Dicksonrp

Well I will certainly say that it is good for the Russians. They allow the zio terrorist Americans to undermine the Syrian govt and taunt the Russians at the same time. This is by flying off the coast while directing drone attacks, NOT THE FIRST TIME while NOT SHOOTING DOWN THE AMERICAN PLANE. Bet they will do it again until some Russian soldiers pay work their lives. SHOOT DOWN ANY AMERICAN OR ISREALHELLI AIRCRAFT!!!

jens holm

I hope You son after that will read the article.

Erik

With the migrants comming in. The choosen ones need Syria as their new home… So, if the U.S. and Israel can not winn, they need to do something “different” . Remember, “they” always send in reconnaissance planes before the attack, since WW2..

Z

It was a perfect opportunity to shot down that plane, using drone attack as a pretext. Drone was probably operated by the same airplane anyway. North Korea shot down the US spy plane EC-121 in 1969. killing all 31 crew members and Americans did nothing. Bullies only understand force.

Russian Army should send a couple of armed drones into Al-Tanf.
