General Leonov: US Air Force pilots reacted nervously to escorting their C-300B4 airplanes

67
Lieutenant-General Alexander Leonov, commander of the military air defense of the Armed Forces of Russia, said in an interview "News" about the actions of the Russian calculations of anti-aircraft missile systems in Syria. According to General Leonov, the C-300B4 air defense system was forced to repeatedly take on escort American reconnaissance planes, as well as bombers from the so-called American coalition.


Alexander Leonov notes that the American pilots “rather nervously” reacted when their planes turned out to support the C-300 air defense system at a distance of 200-300 km.

From the statement of the Russian general:
To expand the control zone of airspace in eastern Syria, to prevent attacks aviation the enemy at the Khmeimim airfield and the logistics base Tartus in October 2016, the S-300B4 air defense division took up combat duty in the designated area. During the performance of combat missions, strategic reconnaissance aircraft and US Air Force bombers were repeatedly detected and taken for automatic escort. Goals were discovered and followed steadily.


According to General Leonov, in the summer of this year, the C-300B4 division’s equipment, together with the personnel, returned to the points of permanent deployment.

Recall that on the eve of the militants tried to "feel" the situation in the province of Latakia, carrying out a rocket attack on the Russian airbase Hmeimim and attack on the position of the Syrian government forces in the north of the province. The missiles launched by the militants were successfully intercepted by the Pantsir air defense missile system. At the moment, the offensive of the so-called "Syrian Free Army" is stopped.

            “Nervously” react when aiming at them.
            And when Russian planes fly in neutral waters, and NATO fighters take them to escort missile guidance, this, of course, is very reassuring. This is a tradition.

        This is too radical a decision, it will cost a lot. But to blind the EW complex, to block communication, navigation, guidance channels and make them return is exactly what you need. You can blame everything on the imperfection of American technology, which cannot work in magnetic anomalies and lightning fronts.

        Commander of the Air Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of Russia Lieutenant General Alexander Leonov in conversation with reporters of the newspaper "Izvestia" spoke about the development of the domestic anti-aircraft artillery complex, which will hit tactical unmanned aerial vehicles. The newest complex will replace the existing Shilka complex. The anti-aircraft complex can be used for different purposes, it can hit cruise missiles, single-shell munitions of MLRS, as well as high-precision weapon systems and tactical aircraft, along with helicopters and lightly armored targets above the water.

    After all, Israeli planes regularly hit rockets in the suburbs of Damascus with missile attacks, and our air defense is probably watching this by studying the capabilities of their aircraft to withstand our latest S-300 and S-400.

      As a matter of fact, and vice versa - the Israeli army is exploring the capabilities of the C-400, S-300 and other Russian equipment. For Israel, this is a very good opportunity to improve the confrontation.

    The Israeli Air Force operates in Syria mainly from its territory or from Lebanon, without entering Syrian territory. So if our people see them out of the corner of their eyes, they obviously don’t take it on sight.
    Although excessive bravado is out of place here. A potential enemy is strong, treacherous and not cowardly as we are sometimes sucked in. In short, there is no need to relax.

    According to General Leonov, in the summer of this year, the C-300B4 division’s equipment, together with the personnel, returned to the points of permanent deployment.

    Like this one time. So it means that air defense systems are also being withdrawn from there? More precisely in the summer brought. And to cover the Base, then who will be there?

    General Leonov: US Air Force pilots reacted nervously to escorting their C-300B4 airplanes

    How do they, interestingly, distinguish exposure to s-300 from s-400?
