British Tornado in Syria will cover Typhoon fighters

British fighter-bombers Tornado will fly on combat missions in Syria, accompanied by Typhoon fighters, in order to avoid accidental rapprochement with Russian aircraft, reports RIA News The Telegraph message.


British Tornado in Syria will cover Typhoon fighters


The newspaper notes that, "unlike the Tornado, the Typhoon fighters are equipped with more advanced radar and air defense systems."

"This decision was made in connection with the fears of possible random clashes in the sky over Syria," writes the publication. In addition, the placement of the C-400 SAM system at the Khmeimim base, as well as the equipment of Russian fighters with air-to-air missiles, played a role.

Commented on the situation aviation expert John Lake: "Any aircraft that take off from the British Air Force base Akrotiri (in Cyprus) fall into the range of Russian missiles, and Typhoon have impressive capabilities to protect themselves and others."

Recall the first attacks on DAISH British aircraft inflicted on the night of December 3.

      The Syrian army is flying to finish off, fighters against world terrorism.

      PARIS, December 7th. / TASS /. Airplanes of the Western coalition countries mistakenly attacked a camp of Syrian government forces. According to AFP, as a result, four Syrian soldiers died, 13 were injured. For this and flew!

      From the point of view of military science, the Anglo-Saxons act correctly. You will not say anything! And here is how the S-400 factor will work ... After all, it is clear that now from the coalition side, no, no, and provocative situations will arise! Accidentally or deliberately, they run into the use of air defense systems on them ... How then will the coalition or specifically the pilot of this Typhoon react? And how far are the parties willing to go?

        Do you think they will be knocked down ?? Our people are extremely afraid of catching someone from NATO .. ​​For any provocations, they will respond with the next chatter of Peskov, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the generals. Due to such a soft-bodied policy, not only the igil has grown, but the western coalition has gathered all the rabble from all over the planet, and everyone will act against us and the Syrian army.

          sooner or later something will have to be decided. And here are two options
          1) cover up the Syrian army.
          2) give up everything and run away from Syria and run, run, run .........

          For me, everything goes to the fact that Russia will still have to use tactical nuclear weapons at NATO facilities.

            they are already passing through it for no reason.
            Everything is simple with the Americans. If they don’t attack, this does not mean that they are so noble and that they have calculated that the damage will be great for them.
            They didn’t and did everything to check Russia on the Turks (Russia will answer or not answer their downed plane). Russia did not answer, which means that it is possible to bomb the Syrian army with impunity, even under the guise of fighting ISIS.
            They will destroy the Syrian army and then the ISIS terrorists will shave off their beards and bury their weapons and banners and the US will say "here they are moderate."
            At the moment, Russia needs to increase the air group of combat aircraft in Syria and more intensively destroy the militants so that even the Syrian army, weakened by airstrikes from the Americans, could withstand the fight against militants.

        Accidentally or specifically, they will run into the use of an air defense missile system against them ... How then will the coalition or specifically the pilot of this Typhoon react?

        For sure, Typhoon will carry anti-radar missiles and air-to-air missiles. In the case of the use of the S-400 air defense missile system (ZRS), he will shoot PRR without thinking. In Syria, we do not have an intermediate link between the long-range and short-range air defense systems - the Buk-M2 air defense system, but there should be. So he would then be a means of fighting Typhoon and their main danger. The consequence may be the loss of the S-400 guidance station, if the launch of the PRR is made, then with a greater degree of probability it will be irrevocably disabled. The Buk-M2 air defense system is needed in Syria and urgently!

        Not from missiles, but from the possible unpredictable actions of our VKS. The British are afraid that there aren’t any fighters, they want to stick their Tornado into the Syrian land. They only forget that for this we don’t need to raise fighters either.

    British Tornado fighter-bombers will fly on combat missions in Syria, accompanied by Typhoon fighters, in order to avoid accidental rapprochement with Russian aircraft, reports The Telegraph to RIA Novosti.
    Is this how Typhoon will help avoid rapprochement? Or maybe they are just afraid that we will not let the Syrian army be bombed yet? After all, NATO has already begun to do this.

    "British Tornado fighter-bombers will fly on combat missions in Syria, accompanied by Typhoon fighters to avoid accidental rapprochement with Russian aircraft."

    The statement is strange to impossibility.
    If suddenly the small British Typhoons, coupled with the Tornads, suddenly intersect with our Su-24/34 or someone else from the flying fraternity, they will in any way not be able to avoid "accidental rapprochement" with our escort fighters. Is that to get out of there farther and faster. And if suddenly the missile with the S-300 / S-400 decides to "accidentally get close", then in this case, even dump away and quickly fail.

Why is this western trash WITHOUT PERMISSION of the Syrian government present over the territory of the country? Why, in general, did we bring the S-400 there? Only in order to close Latakia or only?

        This is not a hysteria, this is a completely fair outrage. You can miss a meter, two, ten, but not two kilometers. The attack on the Syrian base is a planned act of aggression and the ghouls must answer for this. Under the agreement, our VKS also cover the Syrian Military, under our cover the Syrians conduct their operations. And what is the difference between the attack on the Syrians from Daish and this NATO attack? Attack she and Africa attack. Today they struck at the Syrians, and swallow and tomorrow we’ll make a couple of kilometers of mistakes. They only understand the power.

    "This decision was made in response to concerns about possible accidental collisions in the skies over Syria."

    Are they going to fight the possibility of a collision, increasing the number of aircraft in the air? What nonsense!

    I’m more interested in the mutual coordination of the actions of the Russian air forces and the Yankee coalition, how did it happen that the Yankees bombed the Syrian government army, this is definitely not a misunderstanding, but a planned military operation to weaken the Syrian armed forces, and where are our cosmic eyes and ears of the air forces RF

    A raven will not peck out a raven's eyes. As in tsarist Russia, the Rothschilds and others like them are molded friends of our oligarchs, who are, in fact, the real masters of our country. I have already written more than once that while our elite will continue to buy up Western football clubs, and not invite world stars, for example, to Spartak or Torpedo, but send our children to serve at least in the Arbat Military District, we will wash your face with a bloody yushka and not dare to answer the "white sahib" (although he is often similar in color to shoe polish).

    All this is so, only the Israelis are very sorry: how are they now without cheap oil.
    Arab newspaper claims Israel is the main buyer of stolen oil

    It seems to me that it’s time to launch some developments from KRET.
    So that enemy pilots could orient themselves on the ground only visually.
    And keep the connection exclusively with gestures.

    Quote: Teberii
    The Syrian army is flying to finish off, fighters against world terrorism.

    It’s certain that, apparently, NATO and the United States decided to strike at the Syrian Armed Forces, it’s necessary to close the border with Turkey as soon as possible, and then everything that got into the boilers should be cleared, Russia has run out of time!

    I don’t understand why the troops of the Russian Federation will not turn on EW radars, so that all sorts of would not fly.
