It is confirmation that Syria needs more air defence equipment and that one S-300 battery cannot defend an entire country... something that should already be obvious.
Well it looks that is not just israel ,the king in bypassing russian air defenses..
but also Ukraine too.. since those toscka missiles are now targeting russian cities , with impunity.
So the problems is not just russian air defenses in syria.. but in RUssia federation too..
what happened with all this amazing air defenses s-400 and s-300s that could score world records
interceptions in but apparently ukraine toscka ballistic missiles can penetrate deep inside russian territory and strike russian cities?
As i said , this doesn't paint a good picture for russia future . if they have problems with a third
world nation like ukraine , in keeping their soviet era missiles away from russian cities,, even those deep inside russia territory , midway to moscow.. then why they spend so much money on it ?
Russian air space protection , doesn't appear to be good enough , if just a soviet era missile from ukraine can go that far into russia airspace ,without being stopped.. IF that missile was intercepted before he start descending , it will have been stopped right at ukraine borders.. or very close to it ,before it reach russian cities.. How many want to bet, it will be a matter of time , ukraine hit moscow with a missile and many civilians killed . And this is not using low flying drones.. but high altitude flying missiles.. some people need to be fired , including russian president for its incompetence in protecting russian cities.. when it should have been OBVIOUS for absolutely
everyone ,that ukraine was going to attack russian cities in revenge , for this russian army invasion , and indiscriminate targeting of civilians with dangerous bombs..
Wondering what is russia military waiting , for a school to be bombed with civilians in moscow?
My skepticism of russian air defenses , time proved me right.. they are not good enough to protect russia airspace ,but far from it.. if russia was facing a real full war , from NATO, those toscka missiles would have been armed by nuclear warheads ,they provided to ukraine and those cities russian destroyed. since nuclear armed missiles don't need to hit ground to destroy cities. they are actually more effective detonating them at 5,000km altitude.
Russia airforce and airdefenses weakness is teaching a lot to the west , thanks to this ukraine conflict
they provoked. showing the real capabilities of russia in defending its airspace.. and so far , not very impressive ,what russia military have demonstrated versus a third world country like ukraine using soviet era missiles.
quote from ukraine thread
"After the hard shelling of exclusively civilian areas in Donetsk all day and night (with NATO-supplied artillery), now the Ukrainians apparently fire at similarly exclusively civilian areas of Russia.Quite spot on view, mushroom cloud from a big strike as seen from lake Stodol in Klintsy, consistent with a Tochka-U in the direction of Zaymishche."
So what will be the excuses now for russia airforce defenses protecting its cities?
Russian military not there either in russian federation territory protecting their cities?
Why is an ukraine toscka missile allowed to fly so deep inside russian territory ? Russian airdefense not in russia? what is the s-400s and s-300s coverage area again ? Why can't russia intercept
toschka missiles far from russian territory .
