With their radars off they can still receive radar information about the airspace around then via other platforms, and they can still detect targets optically without revealing their positions.
The S300 or S400 at 100km distance gives me no drone at 200m height which I can fight in the journey.
Should the NATO quietly search these systems. It is still better to have these systems active during the march.
Also, I see two or three TorM in colone. Why do not them protect the troop parts alone?
The BukM also drive through the area without TorM or PanzirM protection. I do not understand that.
What is the purpose of that? These are all three front Sam systems. Especially TorM1 / 2 always, no matter what happens, always will be full ready.
It's way too expensive and there are too few of them to drive inactive through the area. It should always protect the rear units in a 15km chain.
Such systems may never be left back. I really can not understand this task. A the tank or truck etc. That's ok but not at 25 million US dollars hightec what NATO is only so waiting to create the thing out of the country. Really, I do not understand anything anymore.
