Russian Buk air defense systems will protect Haftar airbase from Turkish F-16s

Russian Buk air defense systems will protect Haftar airbase from Turkish F-16s

Al-Jufrah's Libyan National Army (LNA) airbase is currently being strengthened by Russian-made Buk systems, which were previously brought into a war-torn country.


The Buk medium-range anti-aircraft missile systems (M1-2 or M2) are being transferred to the Al-Jufra air base to protect it from air strikes by Turkish F-16 fighters! There are still based several systems "Shell-C1E" of the UAE army

- said military expert Babak Tagway on Tuesday.

According to the publication Defenseworld.net, it is not yet clear who sent the Buk systems to the Libyan air base. According to him, last week the Pentagon accused Russia of sending at least 14 fighters (MiG-29, Su-35) to Libya to help PMCs.

Against this background, Turkey, supporting opponents of the LNA, sent a C-16 Hercules transport aircraft, accompanied by F-130 fighters, transporting mercenaries to fight the forces of Khalifa Haftar.

Apparently, the experience of the combat use of the short-range shell "Shell" in Libya demonstrated the need to operate the complex together with more long-range products. Without them, the chance of hitting the system increases significantly. The “shell” of the “Shell” will become the “Buk”, at least within the framework of the objective air defense.

          I agree, only I do not cease to "admire" such a "farsighted" geopolitics, and after all, everything could be done with the wrong hands and save the allies, moreover, Gaddafi warned and lived in the Kremlin in a tent ...

          Finally, after some years there, and irreparable losses, we realized that the air defense should be layered system.

          It’s obvious, and for a long time ago, that the Pantsir air defense system, no matter how good it is,by oneself, to effectively deal with fighters equipped with long-range air-to-air missiles and hordes of UAVs is extremely difficult, and sometimes simply impossible ...

          Medvedev was not the last resort, and his team did not very much influence such decisions ... after all, there was GDP, members of the Security Council (Patrushev, Bortnikov, Naryshkin, etc.), i.e. there were many people who influenced and influence politics The Russian Federation is much stronger than Medvedev ... therefore throwing all the responsibility on DAM is wrong.

        Malyuta .....I strongly apologize, but Gaddafi would be alive if, to put it mildly, MIGs, SUs, BUKs and Armor would be delivered on time by the Russian side.

        Gaddafi would be alive if Russia at a meeting of the UN Security Council (March 17, 2011) voted against the introduction of a no-fly zone over Libya, which Lavrov insisted on. But the then president (Medvedev) didn’t “hear” the Russian Foreign Minister,
        and showed his independence. As a result, Russia “abstained”, along with China and Germany. A total of 15 countries members of the UN Security Council, "abstained" 5 countries. Only 6 countries have the right to veto, including Russia, but it has not taken advantage of this. And this resolution, in addition to the "no-fly zone", provided for many more provisions, including a ban on the supply of weapons to Libya and the freezing of all its financial assets. Life has shown that Lavrov was far-sighted and right. Before this, Gaddafi threatened to abandon the dollar and trade only with Russia, China and India, which served as the “Bickford cord” for him and the country. (Cons are not mine, I do not use them).hi

          Gaddafi's verdict was the desire to introduce a "Golden Dinar", as opposed to the dollar.
          Unfortunately, then the situation in Russia was not the best for a tough confrontation between the United States and its minions.
          It’s easy to condemn and label, but to understand the essence of what is happening and make a long-term decision, this must be complete information.
          When did Erdogan suddenly want to acquire Russian air defense systems? When the cock pecked.
          What happened then and why did the pro-Western politician decide to buy weapons from Russia?

    If the Turks took on Haftar, they will finish it. Apart from American weapons, Putin will also sell ours to them. The SU-35 will soon be sold, the S-400 is already there, its production technology will also push. I won’t be surprised that the SU-57 will appear in Turkey earlier than with us, but in greater numbers.

      Finish Haftar - this is definitely! Many sitting at the computer think they are smarter than staff strategists. It would be as if someone did not want to, but Haftar is a broken card. 50% of information is leaked to the media, consisting of misinformation and "communication checks"! One thing is certain, in any combination of circumstances, neither the Libyans nor the Syrians will win. Be it Haftarovts and Sarajovites, or Asadites and the opposition.

        In 87, Gaddafi arrested Haftar, after his release he moved to the United States and for almost 20 years waged a fight with the Gaddafi family, without the help of the CIA. After the overthrow, Gaddafi returned to his homeland, decided to snatch his piece of cake. He needs support, so he poked around everywhere , and visited Russia, offering oil fields, a base in Libya in exchange for arms assistance and the UN. He needs power, not the restoration of the Gaddafi family. Only Putin works only with Erdogan, he’s S-400, SU-35, helicopters They plan to sell, in general, all that we have, then they will sell. If the Turks crush Haftar (which is undoubtedly), then Putin will get a piece of the Libyan pie.

          I read about Haftar's adventures in his youth.
          Only here Putin is cooperating only with Erdogan, he is S-400, SU-35, they plan to sell helicopters, in general, everything that we have, then he will sell it.

          Russia kills two birds with one stone: earns and makes Turkey an independent, independent country. Erdogan is not eternal, and relations with our military-industrial complex will remain.
          If the Turks hush up Haftara (which is undoubtedly)

          Only in your wet dreams. Nobody is likely to kill anyone, but the Turks from Libya will be torn out.
          then Putin will get a piece of Libyan pie.

          And you just need to steal and share something quietly. lol You fundamentally do not understand the economic tasks of Russia in the most oil-bearing region of the planet. The task is not to squeeze something from the weak and profit from a freebie. This is the lot of Turks and Americans. The problem is that there would be no freebie that arises where there is no strong state. Not for this reason we built so many pipes so that the Turks would rumble with cheap stolen oil. We need a stable, comfortable price for hydrocarbons, not a field or base in Libya.

      The Libyan sky is not the sky of Syria and it is not closed to Turkish aviation.
      Turks will soon begin to use AlVatia. And with the capabilities of SOMs, they don’t need to get close at all. Pulnut from far and come! They have something to surprise the public.

        Syrian is also not closed, which we all saw, for example, attacks by drones.

          In fact, UAVs and aviation are two different things))

    Apparently, the experience of the combat use of the short-range shell "Shell" in Libya demonstrated the need to operate the complex together with more long-range products. Without them, the chance of hitting the system increases significantly. The “shell” of the “Shell” will become the “Buk”, at least within the framework of the objective air defense.


    Finally, after some years there, and irreparable losses, we realized that the air defense should be layered system.
    .

    They still do not understand that only defense (air defense) can always be crushed. We need more cheap and effective shock systems, and air defense only complements them.

    Well, if in Syria how to knock down racket current and not touch Israeli planes, then of course any air defense will be ineffective; because it’s necessary to fight and not to play war games

    The Turks are gaining experience in the war with regular units (albeit weak ones) that have both air defense and aviation. Trained in the Kurds, now in the Libyans and Syrians. How to use drones already learned. And it turns out that it is quite possible to pound “without any analogues” ... Surely they are still experiencing something. They deployed their air defense system to cover the basing places. Haftar and does not try to bomb them

    Buki and Torah must cover the Shell from Turkish drones. When the shells are on the march, they are defenseless and must be reliably covered by beeches.
    But Bukam would not be hindered by covered S-200 or, better, S-300.
    Air defense should be deeply echeloned. fellow

    "... it is not yet clear who sent the Buk systems to the Libyan air base." Why not clear? Of course, either Abkhazia or South Ossetia, independent states!
