BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – Syria intends to acquire Iran’s Bavar-373 air defense system, which was recently modified by the Islamic Republic, the Russian aviation website Avia.Pro reported on Saturday.

Citing Syrian journalists, Avia.Pro said Syria is looking acquire the Bavar-373 after the Russian-supplied S-300 system allegedly demonstrated extremely low efficiency durings its trial phase.

“Information about this is actively disseminated by Syrian journalists referring to a certain military source in the country, and, according to recent data, Iran is ready to supply its air defense systems to the Arab Republic at a special cost, but provided that these air defense systems will not depend on Russia,” the publication said.

The publication added that the Iranian air defense system shares similar characteristics to the Russian S-300, which should limit the amount of training time needed to use it.

It should be pointed out that neither Iran nor Syria has confirmed these claims.

Syria first acquired the S-300 last October when the Russian Federation made their first delivery of this air defense system.

Russia’s decision to supply Syria with the S-300 came just days after their IL-80 was accidentally shot down by the Syrian air defenses off the coast of Latakia.

Russia blamed Israel for the incident, stating that an Israeli Air Force F-16 used the IL-80 for cover during their exchange with the Syrian air defenses.

Syrian’s S-300 have their ON/OFF switch in the Kremlin and I am not sure there is a ON position on that switch.

You first need to deliver real missiles for the ON/OFF switch to work.
The only goal was to provide IFF to SyADF so they can’t shoot at Russian aircraft again. See the pictures in my other post : I’ve found pictures of the model of S-300 launchers Syria received! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Correction : for hat not to happen we would need Israeli pilots to stop being cowardly assholes hiding behind bigger non-vombattant planes every time their radar illumination speaker starts biping. Rest assured Syrian operators know what they are doing and know the kind of foe they’re dealing with after the IL accident,that’s why no more such takedown occured even after the league of cowards again acted like scared children over Lebanon by hiding this time right behind nothing less than an airliner full of hundreds of innocent people that they litterally took hostage to bomb thier targets and fly away… Read more »

Yeah, Jews are püssies : in their place I’d use a small yield (20 tons) neutron bomb on Khamenei’s palace while all the brasses like Salami, Soleimani, etc are gathered.
It’s clear that when IRGC or Hezbollah are doing terrorism worldwide, they are very courageous.
Iranian bribes to obtain cover ups are no more working : Argie former prez Cristina de Kirschner accepted such bribes to cover up the two 1994 bombings against Buenos Aires Israeli embassy and Jewish cultural centre which killed 119 civilians, near all being Argies, now she’s sued for treason.

The problem is not in S-300 system itself. Most likely Russians not allowing to use it against Israel. They provided S-300 just to show off, I bet they never intended to let Syrians use it as they wish in the first place, that is why they didn’t sell it but “provided” it for free – this way they can control its use… Sad reality – Russians have their own interests and those are not always align with Syrian government’s Same as in Donbass, Russians always were coming up with “ceasefires” at the moments when Ukrainian army was on the verge… Read more »

It’s called long term strategy. You’ll only see short terms gains without projecting yourself further. Just dig it : you have a good 140k militants in Idlib. Go too fast, yes, you will cleanse Idlib… But you’ll have pushed the militants into Turkey and Erdogan will re-export them and you have lots of Chechens, Kazakhs, Uzbeks, etc from other CSTO countries. In other terms, it will end backfiring directly into Russia/CSTO… You have to give some hope to these militants if you want to exterminate the maximum of them while doing the blitz would maybe kill 40k but you have… Read more »

Fact: Russians not allowing Syrians to use S-300 against Israel.
That was exact reason why they didn’t sell it but “provided” it with no charge – so they can control it

Yeah, IFF.
My 2 cents the launchers are inflatable.

The only thing “Pro” with Avia.Pro is the name.
It’s the last website you need to read from if you’re interested in aviation :
you won’t find anything as biased as it! Even Paki websites are less biased while speaking about Indian Air Force and they’re fücking biased to anything India-related 🤣🤣🤣🤣

It’s not that S-300 aren’t effective or efficient, the problem is that Russia has the switch on to not shut down the terrorist state planes.. wanna bet if it was a united state F16 goes down.

Funny fact, the countries blacklisted as terrorism funders by FATF are?

+++ “wanna bet if it was a united state F16 goes down”
=>When an Israeli F-16 was shot down, SyADF ended with half of its 900 SAM launchers demolished by IDF… And IDF are nicer than USAF

+++ “The publication added that the Iranian air defense system shares similar characteristics to the Russian S-300, which should limit the amount of training time needed to use it.” => Not really : Bavar-373 (which means “believe in Muhammad the Paedophile”) uses the Sayyad-4 missile, the Sayyad “family” being based on the reverse engineering of the Raytheon RIM-66 Standard inherited from the Shah. Here’s a RIM-66 : Here’s a Sayyad-2: In fact, the Sayyad family provides a copy of RIM-66, then elongated versions to reach longer ranges and Sayyad-4 is the biggest : Its launcher is more inspired by the… Read more »

How funny : J-10 is built from the blue-prints of IAI Lavi China bought from Israel, the Lavi being a kind of F-16 with delta-wings and canards Which makes it a different plane altogether, I hope you relize that,fanboy armchair engineer. I debunked that well-known zionisst hoax of yours designed to inflate their limited capabilities in aeronautics design some time ago if you remember. Dear Douchy, the Lavi was never able to even remotely fill the requirement gap within IAF ranks,it was astonishingly expensive ,the Israeli never reached the capability to mass-peoduce it, never managed to design and build a… Read more »

What a truckload of bullshïts, as usual from the Iranian Goebbels who goes by the name of an ultra-orthodox Jewish rabbi. 1. China has 346 J-11, building them seems closed. J-11 isn’t a Su-30 copy, it’s a Su-27 copy. The Su-30 copy is J-16 and with not even 3 squadrons built since the 2012 introduction, it’s dubious J-16 will end with mass production, especially with J-20 and J-31 in the pipeline. They have already 400+ J-10 and growing. Nobody massively produces a jet-fighter as a stop-gap. J-10 is here to replace the light-fighters fleet, especially antiques like the J-7 (MiG-21)… Read more »

+++ “their IL-80” => IL-80 is this : What SyADF shot down is an IL-20M +++ “Russia blamed Israel for the incident, stating that an Israeli Air Force F-16 used the IL-80 for cover during their exchange with the Syrian air defenses.” => This was just a way to whitewash SyADF responsibility. The explanation of Russian MinDef would have implied the F-16 having loitered for a good 15 minutes where they dropped their gliding bombs (100km+ from target) then came close to Syrian shores while the normal procedure is dropping the gliding bombs at high altitude, then immediately diving under… Read more »
