    I doubt we will find out because I doubt western aircraft would knowingly fly within range of any such systems.

    The best thing to do is to ambush fighter by turning radars on jut when they are in range. They should have however good communictions to know fighters are there.

    Israeli mannaged to evade Syrian Buk missiles. Who knows how they managed to do that (jamming, being at limit range and escaping missiles ..) but they are very good system specially Buk M3, they (specialist who made it) said that it is better than S-300P.

    How they managed to strike Syrian Buks are rather easy - they either struck them while they were on the move (their missiles wouldn't be protruding and radar obviously not in use) and or they struck it outside of range (flying in Israeli territory and dropping a guided munitions than 50km away).

    While Buks are awesome systems, they are rather static when they are to be deployed. So they are good for providing air cover for a forward operating base or some kind of formation that isn't mobile at the time. Tor is mean for fighting while on move and against PGM's.
