The US Air Force tried to paralyze the work of Russia’s S-400 missile system in Syria
DAMASCUS, (BM) – A few hours ago, the US Air Force special aircraft interfered with the normal operation of the Russian S-400 air defense systems deployed at the Khmeimim airbase, trying to paralyze the operation of Russian air defense systems, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
The special aircraft made an artificial attempt to jam Russian radars using various frequencies, while the confrontation between the American military aircraft and the Russian S-400 Triumphs lasted many hours.
We are talking about the reconnaissance aircraft RC-135U, which flew along a route along the entire coastline of Syria, which, according to experts, should have allowed the US military not only to read radio signals from S-400 radars, but also thereby try to send false signals to the radar, creating serious obstacles to the normal operation of the radar.
According to some reports, the American military plane could also interfere with the work of the Syrian air defense systems S-300 Favorit, however, due to the greater remoteness of the latter from the flight route of the American special aircraft, the effectiveness of such actions would certainly be less.
Experts, in turn, note that such arguments by Western analysts are premature and probably unreliable.
“The appearance of any interference on the S-400 radar would force Russian fighters to rise from the Khmeimim airbase to check the source of interference. Given the fact that the American aircraft did not change the route of its flight, it is likely that he was not able to achieve any success,” the specialist notes.
