They fly them off Latakia where Russia has a S-400. What are you talking about.
What are you talking about! The S-400s are there to protect the Russian base and I have never seen Israel attack Russian positions in Syria. It is rare for an Israeli plane to enter Syrian airspace, they always attack from Lebanon, the Mediterranean or from their own territory.
Your deep strike fixation is pointless.
They smash iranian targets deep into syria on a daily bases.
Most of the bombs and missiles launched by Israel are intercepted, which is why even after years of Israeli attacks the Iranian presence in Syria has not diminished
Only official source in France about the Rafale with aesa radar was that it could track an airliner going away from him at more than 200km.
What is the RCS of a airliner? 50m2? 100m2?
It seems my source is more optimistic than the manufacturer itself...
Moreover su-34 RCS is huge like su-27/33. Some 15m2 clean
The Su-34 has RCS reduction treatments that the Su-27/33 does not, its estimated RCS is 1m2 clean.
Rafale is 0.5
Yes, but without bombs, missiles, pods and hardpoints, only internal fuel and the cannon that way it will need to get less than 1km from the target to make an attack...
Missing a runway is a big issue. No matter if it hit a vehicle.
Is it so hard to understand that a vehicle is a much harder target to hit than a runway?!
If he is able to hit a vehicle then the idea that he failed to hit a runway is questionable, as I said before nothing in the photo you posted proved that it was the result of an Iskander attack.
They asked for AD since 2 days ago mostly to counter russian cruise missiles.
The Biden administration went to Turkey to ask them to send their S-400s to Ukraine before the conflict completed 1 month.
They never complained about su-34.
If they ask for a no-fly-zone then it's obvious they fear Russian aviation and I don't see in that request that they excluded the Su-34.
full of parasite signals coming from building and trees
Looking from the bottom up, all you see behind a plane is sky and clouds, unless the plane is flying between mountains, which is not the case here.
It never operated that many systems. Get real.
380 is the number of individual vehicles, an S-300 air defense battery can hold 15 vehicles, Buk up to 12 vehicles.
And when I say vehicles I mean everything:
Vehicles with search radar.
Vehicles with tracking radar.
Missile launch vehicles.
Even irbis has a 3m resolution in ground mode which is really bad
All Russian official sources claim that 3m2 is the RCS of an air target that can be detected at 200-350km distance, which is excellent, and not the resolution in SAR mode.
Ukrainian know how to distinguish a kh-59 from a kh-29.
The same way they distinguished Tochka from Iskander in Kramatorsk?
Well, the plane is getting shot down easily, doesn't even do the job of a bomber and you call it the vest fighter bomber.
Russia has lost an average of one Su-34 per month, I wouldn't call it being "easy shot down", and a bomber's job is to launch weapons to the surface and blow up ground targets and that he has done well.
If su-34 were flying above cities there would ve recording of it. They manage to record kalibrs flying so su-34 would be also recorded.
Kalibrs always fly low, a Su-34 can fly over 15000m in altitude.
What if the Su-34 is making deep strike Ukrainian territory at high altitude to maximize the kinetic energy/range of its weapons?
A random guy on the ground would never be able to record this with his cell phone.
