          That's the point! They learn from us, we learn from them. And I think with our electronic warfare we have more opportunities to learn something more than they do)

            Poseidon is different! EW there is nothing to counteract, on the contrary, they are silent in a rag. Poseidon, this is a big "scanner", a meter of everything and everyone! It is just necessary to do it from him and not to shine.
            Maybe he can perform other functions, for sure, but at the borders he usually fumbles as a scout.
            They sent SU-shki to scam him and norms!

            The United States coordinated an unmanned UAV attack on the Khmeimim drones.
            It's time to use electronic warfare against American intelligence.
            They have nothing to scout there. Let them listen to the MO briefings.
