Iraq received Russian air defense systems

66
The Iraqi army received Russian modern air defense systems, the blog reports imp-navigator with reference to the website of the Ministry of Defense of Iraq.

According to the blogger, among the incoming weapons are “the anti-aircraft missile-gun complex Pantsir-S1 acquired in Russia, the Igla-S MANPADS with the 1PN97M“ Maugli-2M ”thermal sight and the Jigit main-and-launcher.” In fact, these are the first modern systems that appeared in the Iraqi army, except for the Avenger air defense system supplied by the Americans.

          Among the armaments received "are the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile and gun system, Igla-S MANPADS with a 1PN97M Mowgli-2M thermal imaging sight and the Dzhigit support launcher purchased in Russia." This weapon has arrived in Iraq and that it is not modern in your opinion ????

          They have been installed for a long time, everything there is also the S-200 Angara and the S-200V Vega, as well as the Buk air defense system, the Pantsir air defense missile system and much more. The S-300 was also delivered; Syrian air defense is much newer and more numerous than the air defense systems of Libya and Iraq.

          Syria has had them for a long time, I already posted this video, but apparently you missed it.
          Shooting Syrian air defense systems: SAM Buk-M2E, Pantsir-1S, modernized S-125 "Pechora-2M", Square, Wasp, Arrow-10, etc.

          And the fact that they delivered Iraq will be better than defending itself against Turkey and Israel. It is necessary to deliver the S-300.

      Only yesterday there was information that several MI-35s, from the first batch delivered to Iraq, were already in the hands of IS fighters. They captured them along with the base. Today, Iraqi pilots dropped food, water, and ammunition right at the IS positions. They just made a mistake. Am I the only one tormented by vague doubts about "new modern models of Russian weapons"?

And what the hell is the air defense system for them now? Terrorists do not have airplanes or helicopters or even drones, and Iraq now has no other enemies.

    Well, where to go, we must fulfill the contract of 2012 ... Although I am afraid, given the combat capability that the government Iraqi army demonstrates, all these "goodies" will end up in the hands of ISIS militants. On the other hand, what did those who signed contracts think and what did those who authorized supplies think ... It was quite possible to hold back. In general, it is strange that Iraq itself does not refuse to supply the same "Shell" or "Eagle" - it was quite possible to refuse, by force majeure or agree on more relevant weapons systems - this would be in the interests of both sides.

      Or perhaps it is a legalized transfer of arms to the opposition in Syria (Ours can be used blindly, referring to different treaties). The Iraqi military, controlled by SASHA, will say: "They have taken it from us! ..", and then all this will end up in the hands of Syrian militants. How is this option?

    It would be good for the Iraqi military not only to buy modern weapons, but to learn how to use their combat capabilities. The question really arises, with what air targets will they be going to fight? Does this ISIL have a lot of aviation? "Shell", and all other systems are serious. The Iraqi army was provided and trained by American "democratizers", and the deplorable level of training and fighting spirit is fully demonstrated. They are not just fighting badly, but a lot of weapons have been seized by Islamic extremists and used against them. Will the same happen with Russian air defense systems? In addition, even though they will be in the export version, or have already ended up in the clutches of American "peacekeepers" to study and develop countermeasures. So, time will tell whether this is good or bad.

      Well, actually, for Americans, "Shell C1" is not a mystery. ZPRK was created with the money of the UAE (before the native army, by the way), largely thanks to which the complex appeared. There would be no Arabs from the UAE, there would be no Shell. Plus the delivery of 12 complexes to Oman in 2012.
      The Military Balance 2012. - P. 342.

      Both Oman and the UAE are allies of the United States, so that Americans are sure have known him for a long time ...

Already BTR-80UP are thrown into battle - and ISIS their trophy. And this means that the last reserve of the Baghdad garrison went (they only have BTR-80UP).

        for example, captured American 155-mm howitzers M-198

        Type 69-II and MTLB

          I get the impression that the states allow ISIS to seize modern weapons, just all these "Abrams", BTR-4, etc. may appear in Syria (the border is controlled by ISIS), where they will go to Damascus. And Nusra will move from the south to the capital, with the support of Israel, the prospects are not bright, the states are seeking full control over the oil in the Middle East, this is already noticeable with the naked eye. Syria needs the Tor-2M more, they are better at catching low-flying maneuverable targets. And of course the S-300 of the latest modifications. Syria also needs the MiG-31BM, since Israeli aircraft approach under the cover of the mountains, ground air defense systems often do not see them.

            Well, it’s no secret to anyone that part of the weapons seized in Iraq is sent to Syria

            Something like this turns out:
            1. US military-industrial complex received contracts for the supply of weapons to Iraqis
            2. US military-industrial complex received contracts for the supply of weapons to Syrian terrorists
            3. Iraqis leaked weapons to Syrian terrorists
            4. US military-industrial complex received contracts for the supply of ammunition for the destruction of weapons of Syrian terrorists
            5. Destruction of American ammunition, American howitzers delivered to Iraqis and captured by Syrian terrorists.
            6. Triple PROFIT American MIC !!!

            By the way, I will note that the Americans provide air support not on the Shiite front, where Iran and Russia are involved, but in the north, the Kurds have one more "card" that we missed. Outright ...
            In the West, many analysts are surprised at what is happening in Iraq - how so 800 Sunni Islamist militants from some ISIL were able to defeat two divisions of the army of the Shiite puppet government of Baghdad near Mosul, the latter being trained and equipped according to American standards (well, like in August 2008 of the year troops of the Tiflis regime) ?!
            Meanwhile, the offensive of ISIS units in Iraq continues (it is estimated that they have only 10.000 fighters in Iraq and another 6.000 in Syria, against 270.000 Iraqi government troops). Moreover, in the West, the almost mocking tone of comments by Russian officials is emphasized, like: "Well, we you were warned that it will be so! "

          It’s me who is attached to it - after receiving M113 and BTR-4 - all BTR-80UP were brought to the Baghdad garrison. The trophy or the destroyed BTR-80UP means that the garrison of the capital was launched, and not the linear units.

    Strange, why do weapons against aircraft in Iraq? The opposition has no planes, missiles ... If only AGAINST NATO, AGAINST the USA then fine .... !!!

    Apparently, the test in the special language will be taken in Russian :)

    Well, if you think about it, what the hell is air defense for them, it would be better to get bmpeshts and armored personnel carriers, stormtroopers and turntables, they would buy cornet with bassoons, but there would be more hailstones - to fight off infantry.

      They even bought TOS. Judging by the battles in the 10-15 km zone from Baghdad with the latest ISIS victory reports, it does not help much.

      The shells and the delivery of MANPADS are still 2012 contracts - then the situation was different, but now the delivery time has come, and that's it. Although they could be delayed by agreement of the parties. For this is a burden for Iraq (to hide and guard) and it does not need it at all (if the IS gets something really flying, then the USA will spray this flight on atoms on its own, because it is a threat to them basically).

    A couple of such parties would be sent to Syria - they are now needed there. You never know, suddenly Tomahawk will fly in the wrong direction

    these monkeys even have a stick, even a modern MANPADS, the same, military training of air defense units is zero, it is difficult to count on an adequate result ...

    Why do they need air defense? IG has aviation or something I don’t understand!

      Iran and Syria have aviation, and the Yankees also want to delve into the shells and ordered the vassals to buy

        They already rummaged in the shells of the UAE - which by the way financed the creation of the complex, if it weren’t for the Arabs, there wouldn’t have been a shell sad . They also rummaged in the shells of Oman.

    They have been installed for a long time, everything there is also the S-200 Angara and the S-200V Vega, as well as the Buk air defense system, the Pantsir air defense missile system and much more. The S-300 was also delivered; Syrian air defense is much newer and more numerous than the air defense systems of Libya and Iraq.

    and for this we’re not very fit

    I still don’t understand why Iraq needs such complexes, because Isil does not have front-line aviation and medium-range missiles. Most likely, the complexes will be studied by American specialists to counter and search for minuses in Russian weapons ...

      Exactly! You shouldn't be proud, but cut your hands right up to the neck of those idiots who are happy with such "sales"! Time of not frightened middle managers.
