An American military aircraft tried to hack a Russian S-400 missile system
DAMASCUS, (BM) – The American military reconnaissance aircraft Boeing P-8A Poseidon attempted to remotely hack Russian S-400 air defense systems deployed at the Khmeimim airbase, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing news agency Aviapro.
Information on this subject was announced after a Russian combat aircraft was urgently raised from the Khmeimim airbase, although the American reconnaissance aircraft was several tens of kilometers away.
Moreover, earlier there was information that the US was able to collect the operating frequencies of the Russian S-400 air defense systems, the decryption of which is currently underway.
“It is quite possible that after the US aircraft attempts to target the Russian air defense system, it is logical for the S-400 to intercept the US reconnaissance aircraft. Nevertheless, given the fact that the Poseidon was in international airspace, they could only drive it away, and it is with this fact that the rise of the Russian Su-35 into the sky is connected,” the military specialist notes.
It is noteworthy that the information on the interception by the Russian Su-35 was voiced precisely by the American side, while no statements have been made by Russia so far.
BulgarianMilitary.com reminds you that this is not the first attempt by Americans to capture frequencies or hack the frequencies of the Russian air defense system S-400.
On December 20 the US military tried to detect the radio frequencies used by the S-400 air defense systems over Syria.
According to some sources these are very valuable data, because with their help, American planes will be able to “bypass” radars, “pollute” radio broadcasts with interference and even create non-existent targets.
