The NI presented a version of the reasons for "harassing" Washington's Russian air defense

51
American Journal The National Interest came out with the material, which presents a version regarding the latest information attacks from the US on Russian air defense systems. The material recalls that the United States claims that all cruise missiles that have achieved targets in Syria are supposedly without exception, and that the Russian air defense systems "did not even have time to react."


The author of the article, the notorious Dave Mujumder, assumes that all these statements are also addressed to Turkey. For what purpose? According to Majumder, the United States is thus trying to dissuade Ankara from acquiring the Russian S-400 air defense system.

The NI presented a version of the reasons for "harassing" Washington's Russian air defense


The NI article says that US officials, claiming the alleged ineffectiveness of Russian air defense systems, are in fact cunning.

From the material:
If Russian air defense systems are inefficient, then why are billions of dollars spent on improving the efficiency of technology, including stealth technology, on American aircraft?


The magazine assumes that at the next hearings in the US Congress will again be raised the theme that the Russian air defense systems are "ineffective against American technology." Among the American experts note that such statements can be directed exclusively to amateurs.

      The best missile defense will be when they reorient the enemy’s missiles back to their original position. lol

              Simply find the reason that our air defense systems are superior to any other:

              Our country has already experienced the "global disarming strike"

      Ever since the times of the USSR, the characteristics of Soviet, and later Russian, weapons were underestimated, no matter how much happened and would not be dishonored. Americans, on the contrary, have always overestimated the characteristics of their weapons on the principle of "advertising - the engine of trade." Well, they were eager to catch the enemy. And for the most part, in combat use, the Soviet and Russian proved to be better and more effective. By the way, if the Americans did not twist their hands to their "allies", sales of American weapons would have fallen great, who needs expensive and inefficient weapons.

    Not well, but they themselves will not step on Faberge? If Russia's air defense is so ineffective, then why spend billions to fight them? A dark story with a massive blow to Syria - with cries of the absolute effectiveness of "demolishing" three sheds for 200 lyam greens - amazing efficiency ... Plus, the "loss of face" - which in the east - has very serious consequences ...

      Billions are spent to earn tens and hundreds of billions. This is the most profitable business. But someone should play the role of a terrible enemy, so there is no way to do without Russia.

      It’s not funny, it’s funny that it is discussing the legislative assembly of the state which our air defense systems did not see in the eyes, even at parades! Unlike our layman.
      Just for a moment, imagine the conversation of these "specialists" - senators:
      A Dogon Alabama Republican tells Sam a Kansas Democrat:
      - "The S-400 Russian complex is bad however."
      - "Yes, John - complete garbage."
      “Where are you going today, Sam.”
      - "Digging new bomb shelter John"!
      - "Why are you Sam?"
      - "The Russians have good hackers, as if they hadn't thrown a rocket into the yard for anti-advertising" !!!

      More. But here it does not matter. Air defense systems produced in the Russian Federation today without exaggeration can be called the best in the world and, as accurately noted in the article, overcoming them requires significant material and intellectual efforts.

        In general, Trump wanting to show his strength and power + advertising high-precision weapons. With both acts of "retribution" he proved radically the opposite!
        In the first case, more than half of the "axes" simply did not fly!
        In the second, three-quarters of the “smart missiles” were shot down. Moreover, it was not the new S-400s that were shot down, but the old ones of Soviet manufacture, so it remained for the Almaz-Antey concern to give Donald another royalty and award Putin the Order of Friendship of Peoples with the wording "For Services to the Fatherland in Promoting Air Defense Systems on the Foreign Market" !
        One can only guess which American aircraft carrier Trump will drown for the “Star of the Hero of Russia”!

    Of course, in the United States and vassal Europe, no one doubts who has the best, including and air defense systems. But for some reason, they constantly talk about the Russian threat and try to push Russia out of the arms market. If Russian weapons were not in demand abroad, did not pose a threat to NATO, then there would be no noise.

      So they shot down, so shot down, that all the necessary targets were hit in Syria, a bunch of video of missile hits, satellite images, and we are still waiting for evidence of the MO about the downing of missiles.

          It’s really hard. If you saw the pictures before and after, you would understand that.

          But the slow reaction of the Syrian air defense, which is not clear where and how they fired, the promises of the Russian Defense Ministry to provide evidence, etc., just confirm that the Americans went through Syria in full.

    It seems to me that the United States did not say this for Turkey regarding the C400. It is for this reason that the author has a problem with explaining the reason why Americans are developing stealth technology and so on.

    The United States has shown that they can do what they want in Syria, and when they want and do not ask either Russia or the UN.

    It is naive to expect that the old Syrian air defense will be effective against modern military equipment and weapons.

    Moreover, it is one thing if the C300 and C400 were used and the United States launched an attack against these systems, and a demonstration of force against older air defense systems does not serve in any way that Turkey will abandon the C400.

    Now, if Russia supplies the C300 to Syria and Israel destroys it, it will hit the reputation of Russian weapons, including the C400.

    I will express my humble opinion. I do not think that in the near future we will see downed US planes. For two reasons.
    The first one. Russia will not bring them down, because it goes against her interests. A limited operation to destroy bearded people in a foreign land, where it is not necessary to pay for restoration, raising the image of the military-industrial complex and Russia as a whole, plus the interests of Gazprom, is not worth the rapidly growing escalation with the risk of exchange of blows.
    The second one. Syrians are also unlikely to do so. The United States, like Israel, is destroying air defense, which decided to fire at their planes. So, without a very good reason they won’t get knocked down.
    I repeat this is just my opinion on the alignment of forces. hi

    You can find out what the air defense system of the Russian Federation actually is only by "trying" them on your own, and it’s very scary-everyone wants to live! Russia is not going to prove anything to anyone, but if someone has something “combed”, then gentlemen will not be too weak and the Donald Cook diarrhea will seem childish pranks to you! Russia still has a lot of good and different things in store that can “please” the restless gentlemen!

    Yes, let them star ... Here Russia behaves incorrectly in this situation, tries to make excuses, attacks, sometimes threatens in the media .. It’s better to be silent! And do things, not grind with tongues. In response to the death of the “Wagnerites” (I think that there was a regular Russian special forces) in Syria, they erased the 22nd SAS Airborne Battalion of Small Britain (and this is 4 special forces companies and staff company). Who "cracked" about this? Just silently avenged their own, killing 3 times more people. It will also be with missile strikes tomorrow: the Russians will send a couple of NATO troughs to the bottom, the rest will scatter themselves. Also with air defense / missile defense - they will "lower" the three vaunted Amerov bombers to the ground and immediately opponents will shut up in all rags))

    That is what is aimed at amateurs, but not at all in Turkey. The Turkish Defense Ministry cannot compare two facts:
    * Massive hit was
    * The results of this strike were not provided.
    Drones dangle over Syria, a satellite constellation in space, militants and all kinds of white helmets on the ground, and from the photos - 1 shed for 100 missiles. It is designed for its own citizens of the United States and may be a little on bulk.
