Russia explains mass destruction of Pantsir air defense systems by Turkish drones in Syria and Libya
Thursday, July 9, 2020 1:00:00 PM


The mass destruction of the Russian-made Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile and artillery systems in Syria and Libya can be explained by the existence of a so-called "dead crater" or "dead zone", writes the newspaper of the Russian Defense Minister Krasnaya Zvezda (Red Star).

The newspaper states, referring to the official tactical and technical characteristics of the air defense system, that Pantsir has limitations with regards to its ability to detect targets "at low, medium and high altitudes, especially those flying at minimum altitude and maximum speed, or at the highest altitude and maximum speed."

Nevertheless, the publication notes that, considering the speed and effective scattering area of Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 reconnaissance drones, Pantsir can counter them.

In June, the newspaper wrote that the export version of Pantsir air defense system has only an optical control system and is "therefore ill-equipped to fight such targets as the Turkish Bayraktar TB2".

In the same month, the Ukrainian publication Defense Express, citing its own sources, reported that in recent years, during the military conflicts in Syria and Libya, at least 23 Russian-made Pantsir-S1 systems were destroyed.

Seems like the pantsir has problems detecting air targets at all.

What are those spinning rectangular box and static round drum then? Decorations?

Russian armed forces haven't had enough experience of practicing targets with dimensions of a so called UAV. So they haven't focused on that field much, specially being a regular military superpower, Russian military is not designed and programmed to fight or counter assymetrical Warfare.

TB-2 successfuly destroyed Pantsir because of those facts. Turkey had a firstly cost effective Solution and secondly an assymetrical Measure implemented by using TB-2s to counter Pantairs.

Pantsir wont miss any helicopter in the air.

So, what's that "revolving thing" a giant optical system?
I was taking Russians more seriously at the past but they really showed that they are touched in the head.

Of course, we know these kind of articles are made for internal consumption, however not criticizing yourself, not try to achieve better would only make you decline. With this kind of censorship and being in the constant denial mode, they will continue to decline.

Based on a uawire.org reportand you Turkish always made fun of SC for using Arab news in his threads...
In a near future we will meet some real Pantsirs , manned by real operators, and we shall see your Bakhtyar's half life written in smoke and metal in Lybian skies...

Russian weapon systems are overrated, you only have to see how the PAF F16 shot down the Su30MKI last year and the Mig21.

Look at the performance of Russian systems in the middle east, and what Israel does to them every day.

Best to avoid them..
