NATO E-3A AWACS "met" with the Russian "Kraukha-4" in Syria?

82
US and NATO stepped up aviation radar reconnaissance in Syria and in the eastern Mediterranean. So, on the eve of the early warning radar E-3A Sentry AWACS made reconnaissance flight near the Syrian borders. Sites that monitor aviation activity have published data on the movements of a reconnaissance aircraft, which, according to recent data, belongs to the North Atlantic military bloc, and which was sent to Syria on the initiative of France, Germany and the United States.


NATO E-3A AWACS "met" with the Russian "Kraukha-4" in Syria?


Recall that in Syria there are about 1,1 thousand French soldiers, the largest number of which are stationed in the territories where the American military contingent is in the SAR.

What do these means of objective control say?

An aircraft with a tail number LX-N90446, having the call sign NATO07, took off from the Geilenkirchen air base (north of Germany). Over the international waters in the area of ​​the Russian Hmeimim airbase and near the borders of Lebanon, a reconnaissance aircraft spent about 3 hours.

This aircraft is able to detect targets at a distance of 400 km (according to other sources - up to 500 km). Its cruising speed is 750 km / h.

Intelligence activity in the area is clearly associated with the deployment of Russian anti-aircraft missile systems C-300 to Syria. Recall that modern Russian electronic warfare systems are also unfolding in Syria. After the start of their use, intelligence activities carried out using the same E-3A Sentry AWACS can be difficult. However, if we take into account the target detection range of the Avaksom (400 km) and the stated range of the EW Krasuha-4 complex (up to 300 km), then, as you can see, the American-made aircraft has a certain reserve. However, the fact that the LX-N90446 board for more than 95% of the reconnaissance time did not come close to Hmeimim closer than those same 300 km may indirectly indicate that the crew of the E-3A Sentry AWACS was afraid to get into the zone of the Russian electronic warfare systems.

        If the US military from the missile cruiser "Vincennes" allow themselves "fun" with the destruction of Iranian civilian aircraft Airbus A300 where 290 people died, and then reptiles in front of American politicians repeat their "feat" destroying the Russian Tu-154 in 2001 and the Malaysian Boeing 777 in 2014, it is not surprising that the Israeli military, on the eve of the allocation of US military aid in the amount of $ 40 billion, decided to do the same with the Russian Il-20, substituting it for a Syrian missile.

          When we landed from Vincennes, it was a tragic mistake, the Americans admitted it and apologized, and even paid compensation! Tu-154 whose hands are doing? 777 whose hands are doing? And the IL-20 was shot down by the Syrians, and this is a fact! Directly expose the Israelis to the grandmasters of air strategies , it’s not possible to calculate such a combination in the air in minutes, and planning on the ground in advance also will not work!

        Radar reconnaissance is a hostile act. Being over international waters does not make the aggressor’s actions less aggressive.
        I think that you can send a fighter there, and internationally bring down.

              Hm ... well, let's "from the stove":

              1. There is no "aggressive reconnaissance" in nature; it was you who deceived you.
              2. When a couple of strategists (with something incomprehensible on board) fly along the SyShyA coast - believe me, this annoys the local Aboriginal people much more than ours in Syria - there is some kind of Avax.
              3. Everyone plays these games, and while everyone tries to adhere to certain rules ... decency, or something. The downing of a reconnaissance "peacefully grazing" in international waters (or over "foreign" land) is strongly against these rules.

              Something like that.

                    How would it be ... In Soviet times, around Novaya Zemlya in neutral waters, scout enemies such as U-2, SR-75 were constantly patrolling, the reconnaissance ship "Maryata" (it seems) was spinning at the border of territorial waters. And nothing, and silence in the media. The military knew, they were going about their business ... if there was an opportunity to shoot down and the body fell on our territory ... !!! But the adversary knew it too. Our Tu-16, Tu-95, missile submarines were constantly on alert off the coast of the United States ... And there was silence, the opposing sides did not see anything special in this ... The media are currently ... chasing ... who first ... uknet. I think so.

          Radar reconnaissance? Well, actually AWACS (in English - AEW & C) is Airborne early warning and control - "Early warning and control in the air." In the Russian-language literature, the abbreviation AWACS is used ("long-range radar detection and control system") I learned about radar reconnaissance only from your commentary, could not briefly describe this type of reconnaissance, tasks and methods of its implementation.
          Radar (English radar from radio detection and ranging) is a system for detecting air, sea and ground objects, as well as for determining their range, speed and geometric parameters.

      This is not speculation, but the usual analysis of information based on technical characteristics of both intelligence and electronic warfare. And also on data like scouts these worked before. If there is a deviation from the norm, a new component has accordingly appeared. You go to work one way a month, and then bang the pipes are changed and a trench is dug up. You change the route. Without this trench, you would walk as before.

      Everything in the article is logical, the scout and the truth is forced to leave the reconnaissance zone, he himself observed on the map. First, he flies up 40-50 kilometers from the coast and begins to conduct reconnaissance, after a few laps goes south to Israel, and even further beyond Cyprus for hundreds of kilometers and hangs over the sea, after which he returns to Syria again every day. The duration of the reconnaissance flight increased from 1 hour to 4. It is very likely that our systems are blind and do not allow the reconnaissance to work, and this is good.

        Well, the fact that the scout flies for at least 4 hours testifies precisely to the fact that he, the scout, is "working", and not ... chilling. "
        But if he was "blind", then there would be a flight ... with 1 hour duration soldier

    this may indicate that the author simply has nothing to write about ...
    considering that he himself declares:
    - This aircraft is capable of detecting targets at a distance of up to 400 km (according to other sources - up to 500 km)
    - range of action of the electronic warfare complex "Krasukha-4" (up to 300 km)

    This aircraft is able to detect targets at a distance of 400 km (according to other sources - up to 500 km). Its cruising speed is 750 km / h.

    Where does this data come from, what are the goals? Either this is a target such as an aircraft carrier, with an RCS of 150 m2, or it is an infantryman in a dugout, the RCS "you will see" ...
    What does Rubella-4 with 300 km and 400 km have to do with it, on which Sentry "sees" the target? How are these values ​​related, and even with the "margin"? And at the "Voronezh" radar, so in general then the space reserve?
