Defense Ministry denies Ankara's statement on the destruction of eight "Shell" in Syria

The statement of the Turkish Ministry of Defense on the destruction in Syria by Turkish drones of eight anti-aircraft missile-cannon systems (ZRPK) "Shell-S" of the Syrian army is not true. This statement was made on Tuesday by the Russian Ministry of Defense.


The Russian military department has denied a statement by the Turkish leadership about the allegedly eight Pantsir-S air defense missile systems destroyed by Turkish UAVs in Idlib province. According to the representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, the main forces and means of the Syrian air defense, including the Pantsir-S air defense missile system, are concentrated in the Damascus area. In the Syrian province of Idlib, only four complexes carried out cover for troops.

Estimates presented to the head of the Republic of Turkey on the combat effectiveness of the use of strike UAVs in the province of Idlib, allegedly able to destroy eight Syrian anti-aircraft missile-cannon systems "Shell", are untrue and are more than an exaggeration

- Said the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

According to the Russian military, as a result of massive attacks by Turkish drones, two Syria army air defense missiles received damage (not destroyed, but damaged). Currently, their recovery is coming to an end, and soon the complexes will begin to carry out combat missions.

As a result of the massive attacks of Turkish strike UAVs, two Syrian air defense missiles "Shell" were damaged. Their recovery is currently being finalized.

- specified in the ministry.

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkish drones destroyed eight Syrian army shells in Idlib.

        In the picture is "Shell-C2", which are used only by Russia in Syria.

    Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkish drones destroyed eight Syrian army shells in Idlib.

    So the firm of Erdogan’s son-in-law produces these drones. Here he is, and praises a relative in order to make an advertisement. In order for the business to go. Someone else knows Erdogan.

      finally son-in-law took up long before meeting Erdoganov’s daughter.
      Now his family ties, of course, are also a plus, but in general, sensible UAVs are riveting and quickly, in contrast to the tai state office.
      Now, in the wake of success and from the Ministry of Defense, they will throw some money and foreign buyers will stir. so you can break into the market leaders.

      Bayraktar developed this industry even before he became a son-in-law. He is a very gifted person, and he is not alone, he does everything together with his brother. And in the beginning his father financed everything. (In the beginning, they even sold their house to invest in a mini workshop where they collected small flying mock-ups) They created small, but completely autonomous UAVs. He then, after all, became Erdogan’s son-in-law. At the expense of advertising, Anka-S (TAI) state, Bayraktar tv2 (Baykar) private company.

          So Bayraktars on this theater are more effective. Anka has a higher ceiling and a little more global goals. And if treated objectively, then the Bayraktars have done business. No matter how hard it was, the Turkish UAVs clearly showed themselves not from the worst side.

            Well, do not forget that they showed themselves while the Syrians and ours did not tighten the air defense. Then their successes abruptly subsided, and the losses increased. In Libya, they are also well shot down by Emirate shells. But given that the Turkish air force has no attack aircraft and relatively few attack helicopters, Bayraktara is an inexpensive substitute for it. Moreover, it does not require complicated training of pilots and does not lead to their losses. But against a serious enemy with advanced air defense and fighter aircraft - they will end very quickly.
            In fact, this is an analogue of our corsair. Only in our army is Corsair a niche thing, and in the Turkish its role is much more serious. hi

          Anka is larger and three times more expensive, a much more serious equipment. Bayraktar is much cheaper, low cost in operation, because there are more orders.

            Who buys Bayraktara? Tripoli, Turkey and Ukraine? The cost is close to the price of a helicopter, but they are of little use, and they often get them down in the same Libya. 110 km / h Bayraktara speed. A good target.
            In late May and early June 2019, a second batch arrived, probably counting eight Bayraktar TB2 UAVs, to compensate for combat losses and increase operational capabilities. In response to this, the All-Russian Union of Artists planned, and on August 15, 2019 launched a high-precision strike on the hangars of the Misrat Aviation School, which were recently built to accommodate the Bayraktarov TB2. On August 18, 2019, the All-Russian Air Force carried out additional attacks on the territory of the aerodrome, expanding their radius to destroy more new infrastructure and UAV support facilities.
            The high percentage of losses of Bayraktar TB2 UAV as a result of strikes by the All-Russian Union of Aviation and the Vin Moon II UAV resulted in the appearance of a third consignment of Bayraktarov TB2019 in Misrata at the end of August 2, delivered by Ukrainian airlines on the An-12 and IL-76TD aircraft. In total, at least 16 UAVs were delivered.

              First of all, they are ordered by the Turkish Armed Forces and the gendarmerie. They are very cheaper for their VS. Therefore, they order a lot, let them in like a black galosh. They sell abroad in three roads. Recently they opened another plant for the inlet of composite materials that are used to create the corps these drones. That is, expand production.

              Bayraktars sold abroad Tripoli (? Pcs), Ukraine (6 pcs) and Qatar (12 pcs). Anka-C 2-3 days ago received an order from Tunisia, in the first batch of 6 pcs.

        Subjective assessments are very different, but in fact, who really wanted what and what they achieved .... is difficult to decide, because real plans, intentions can only be understood by the Syrian government - to free the territory of the state from barmales and uninvited "liberators"! There are successes, but paid dearly for them !!! Again, a good lesson for the future. to fight with barmalei or with a regular army is not weak, in all respects, the country is a big difference !!! soldier

Because if ours is the fact of the start of the war against Russia, and the country is obliged to deliver a powerful missile and bomb strike on Turkey, as a preventive countermeasure, the answer to the aggressive Turkish actions against our military personnel.

    Should this be understood as an average correction for the results of the operation?
    That is, we introduce a reduction factor 4 (8/2 = 4) for all results.
    Then 20 downed drones turn into 20/4 = 5
    Perhaps these figures are closer to the truth?

        Turkey recognized the loss of 12 UAVs. The destruction of 6 Anka-S and 7 Bayraktar was confirmed. (photo and video), but most of the downed UAVs fell on the territory not controlled by the SAA. By the way the other day, another Bayraktar fell on the Syrian-Turkish border. Turkish media wrote about this, allegedly for technical reasons.

        If the Turks knocked out the shell, then these air defense systems and, in general, Syrian air defense, does not pose any danger to the United States.

        And then why are the states so worried about the s-400?

        For them, the Turkish S-400 will work if that.

          How do you know how many were there

          I read in the article.
          According to the representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, the main forces and means of the Syrian air defense, including the Pantsir-S air defense missile defense system, are concentrated in the Damascus area. In the Syrian province of Idlib, troops were covered in total four complex.

            Now, after the battle, the MO can write anything. What complexes there were three. Or five

            According to official figures, 36 Shells were delivered to Syria. Could they all die in a couple of years under the blows of the Israeli air force

                Critical thinking is given to a person to analyze the situation from various sources, often contradictory

                Statements that there were only 4 Shells from an interested group of persons (MO) do not cause any confidence

                And you immediately categorically took it on faith

                Закон Lawfulness of justice. And the official source does not mean that he is telling the truth. ”

                  And Recep Erdogan is not an interested person? Or Turkish MO with its thousands of killed SA soldiers, hundreds of tanks and self-propelled guns? So it is not known who is more interested

              Of course. But the same source claims that most of the BM was in the Damascus region, which, in general, is logical. And the shell in its current form is not at all air defense

      More than a controversial statement. The same shell could be damaged by shell fragments. But this does not mean that he is not able to bring down anything. What, in fact, happened in Syria and Libya (and not only)

    Strange differences, however. Cause only a smile. Definitely not 8 recoverable. . What, a bit too much or for this they remove the prizes ... It is not clear. The word of one MO against another.

    Defense Ministry denies Ankara's statement on the destruction of eight "Shell" in Syria

    Since the Ministry of Defense has denied it, it means that it was so, the Turks destroyed several Armor

    “Never believe the rumors - wait for the official refutation” (a joke of the Soviet period)
