Upgraded Scud missiles in Syria


In the course of the hostilities, the SAR government forces were forced to use the Elbrus complex 9K72 received from the Soviet Union. Their 8K-14 liquid fuel missiles weighing more than 5 tons and one-ton warheads are capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 300 km.



“The complexes are mounted on the chassis of all-terrain vehicles MAZ-543M“ Hurricane ”. Tank 525 liter engine from. accelerates a thirty-seven-ton machine to 60 km / h, the range is 500 km, ”writes the author of the material Lev Romanov.

According to him, the latest use of missiles of this type was recorded while repelling the attacks of terrorists in the spring and summer of 2015.



Foreign sources claim that Syria also has modern Scud modifications, which have more advanced characteristics, accuracy, and capabilities for breaking through missile defense.

"It is this technique that is currently a kind of emergency reserve of the Syrian army," the author concludes.

      I'm sure Israel’s four-stage air defense will blow these old missiles like skittles.

        Believe further. These "skittles" in the first war in the Gulf, badly shook the nerves of Israeli Jews and the American air defense system "PETRIOT" did not help ....

    Syria also has modern modifications of the Scuds, which have more advanced characteristics, accuracy, and missile defense breakthrough capabilities.

    What is this addressed to? To the Israeli air defense? Barmaley, as I understand it, have no modern missile defense systems.

        Rather - to the snake ball, which settled in Syria, on the borders and border territories of neighboring states. This is an international terrorist gang led by the United States, and Jordan as a launching pad for the concentration of troops and training of barmaley, and Israel as an oil hub and a medical center for helping wounded Wahhabis, and Turkey.

      for non-nuclear powers, BRs are a strategic deterrence weapon. This is the only weapon of our time that is guaranteed to deliver explosives over long distances with high accuracy. RB is the only weapon in the world to intercept which is very difficult even if it is found - there is no air defense missile defense system in the world that guarantees the interception of a missile defense with any decent probability. With 400, Patriots can intercept similar targets but the probability is small. And if the BRs have built-in electronic warfare and fly along a quasibalistic trajectory, then interception is generally very unlikely.

      According to your Israeli data, the bloody dictator Assad always strikes at markets, hospitals and schools, and certainly - in the afternoon, so that there are more victims among children, women, and the elderly. And he also loves to use chemical weapons, especially before the arrival of the international commission. Jews diligently believe any such information and try to retell it wherever they can.

        Not always, and not on purpose, of course. Poor intelligence, lack of precision weapons or
        lack of specialists in its use, lack of facilities
        war at night leads to such cases. Chem. he used weapons several times,
        and the militants also used it - even more

    The Syrian army is armed with a significant number of upgraded Scud missiles, which are currently hidden in specially constructed, well-protected and camouflaged shelters, reports the Bulletin of Mordovia.

    This is not the first time I have come across interesting articles published in this amazing publication. Although it is called the “Messenger of Mordovia”, the theme is not limited to Mordovia alone. It touches on many topics of global significance. I am sure that the publications in the Vestnik of Mordovia are very closely monitored by experts and analysts from all over the world. So this time came out material intended apparently for analysts in Israel and the United States, such as let Israel not open its mouth. yes

    Most likely, this is not a modernized version of SCAD, but the Iranian version. Maybe Qiam-1

    “It is such a technique that is currently a kind of untouchable reserve of the Syrian army”

    Let the Israeli Jews be afraid, maybe not all bacteriological weapons have been destroyed yet, something was lying around in the bins of the SAR, and sometimes some directly beg for bubonic plague, smallpox, anthrax, etc.
