India is closely monitoring possible use of S-400 in Libya by India

51

India will closely monitor if Turkey relocates C-400 missiles there to protect its interests in Libya. If Ankara does, they will be used against the French Rafale jets. New Delhi is not interested in this situation out of idle curiosity, but because India plans to purchase both the Rafale and the S-400.


About this writes the publication EurAsian Times.

The use of S-400 missiles against Rafale jets may soon become a reality, since Turkey is considering the deployment of Russian air defense systems in Libya to counter the French and Egyptian air forces, which have Mirage and Rafal aircraft in service.

The Turkish military and their allies are constantly attacked by Rafale, so they could use the Russian C-400 as a countermeasure.

Previously, the publication reported that French planes easily evaded radars and Turkish air defense systems during the bombing of Al-Vatiya air base in Libya. To protect this base, an American-made MIM-23 Hawk air defense system is located there. The fact that Rafal planes were able to bomb this facility with impunity has spawned discussions in Turkey about the need to deploy Russian S-400 air defense systems in Libya, which Ankara recently purchased.

    The S-400 Sultan will not take Libya. He protects them to protect himself beloved from his own warriors. 16 years old he went for the future.

          Will have to re-purchase. And wait for new complexes for years ... bully

              So we'll take a look. In the S-400 in Libya - "I do not believe". wink

    The base was fired with rockets from about 100 km. And they knocked out one Hawk.
    Hawk shoots 30-50 km in total.
    There you need something like an S-200 in range.

      S-400 has in the complex a missile with a range of 400km. It should be enough. True, Turkey did not buy shells, to protect the S-400 itself.

        S-400 has a complex missile with a range of 400km

        Our S-400, theoretically, has such missiles.
        And China and others got rockets with a maximum range of 250 km.
        China's test reports confirm this. hi

            in the sense of interaction — whether they receive small information from S400-navryatli radars, for this they have their own radars, like the middle ones, or as an option like ours from one large-type radar-Sky-transmits data to the CP of different complexes, both small and medium and distant - probably so

      For the organization of a reliable air defense system, first of all, the creation of a reliable radar field - for the timely opening of an attack, warning and target designation. And a long-range missile against a CD flying at low altitude is useless, for such a Hawk and S-125 it is quite enough - such a CD will appear above the horizon no further than 15-50 km, depending on the flight altitude and the nature of the underlying surface.
      ... Only the Turks do not talk about it repeat .

      I think so too.
      They took the S-400 to bring down their own F-16s, if some pilot again, according to tradition, is inspired by Ataturk’s constitution and tries to bomb Erdogan.
      The complexes will cover the residence of the president and the state institution of Ankara, first of all.

              Hard to say. He dispersed half of the Air Force after the coup attempt. Part of the F-16 pilots was arrested, some were expelled from the army.
              And the Air Force generals also cleaned up.
              And these are hereditary military elites.
              Such humiliation is not forgotten and not forgiven.

            Erdogan does not want to risk his life.

            Do you think that he will not put the Greeks nerves on the border with Greece S-400 and cover up the development of the shelf of Northern Cyprus?
            I believed that this was not the last task in the decision to purchase.
            IMHO, so the first training was carried out on F-16 - the main Greek aircraft.
            As for personal security - at the time of the coup, the generals and their own Prime Minister (whom Europe almost openly recognized as his successor) merged him.
            The prime minister is retired and has not heard anything about him, the generals are in prison.
            When there is no one to give a command, the pilots will not fly to bomb. hi

    If I'm not mistaken, Turkey has not yet adopted the S-400 into service. The first division was set up not so long ago, I’m not sure in this regard that the personnel mastered the equipment quite well. They also did not buy shells for cover.
    I hope that the complexes will not be there, because one hundred percent will make bad advertising.

    The Turks already have one regimental set of S-400s of 3 divisions, and ordered another (I don’t know for tomatoes or for real money) plus F-16, the Egyptians C-300 V, plus Rafali, Mirages, our MiGs -29. An interesting situevina looms if they shake their foreheads on the land of Libya (after all, someone fuels this escalating conflict) You just don’t think of a situation for a real S-400 test in combat conditions, and the Turks are unlikely to miss this opportunity there are limitations on the contract (they had already run-in the complex on their F-16s) Yes, the Egyptians ordered our SU-35s ... Yeah, as they say, it’s just scary how interesting. And if there’s also air combat using the above types of aircraft .. .. There is generally either crazy advertising to our military-industrial complex, and buyers will turn up in line ... or the greatest shame
