Recall that the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry a few days earlier noted that at least six F-35 fighters were located on the borders of the Islamic Republic. Then Lavrov added that this information is subject to additional verification.

In the Chinese edition of Sohu, commenting on these statements, they recall the words of the Pentagon representative, who spoke in the spirit that “the Russians conceal the tactical and technical characteristics of their S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems.

The material of the Chinese edition mentions the characteristics of the S-400 range – about 400 km.

From the article: “But there is a high probability that it was the S-400s located in Syria that helped the Russian military find the American stealth fighters near the borders of Iran. This may mean that S-400 radars can detect airborne objects at distances that exceed the declared 400 km.”

At the same time, in the USA, in fact, recognizing the “visibility” of the F-35 for the S-400 air defense system, they declare the following:

“The ability to detect F-35 fighters does not mean the possibility for the S-400 to bring them down.”

It is added that “in such a situation, the F-35 will destroy the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system using the electronic jamming system.”

In China, the S-400 topic is being discussed especially vigorously due to the fact that the other day the PRC received a new regiment set of missile systems from Russia. Earlier, there were reports of radar tests of S-400 systems on Chinese fifth-generation fighters J-20.
