Employees of the Pentagon deliberately underestimate the effectiveness of Russian air defense in order to dissuade Turkey from the acquisition of anti-aircraft missile systems S-400, according to National Interest.
The newspaper quoted American civil servants who say, in fact, that the Syrian air defense methods of Russian manufacture if failed to display any of the 1st strike of States and supporters during the shelling on April 14. Apart from this, employees of the Ministry of defense of the USA showed again that the Russian Federation has not used its own air defense during the missile strikes by the lands of Syria.
However, as that magazine, Pentagon statements about the “inefficiency” of the S-300 and s-400 are contrary to the multibillion costs of USA on stealth technology to bypass the made in Russia air defense systems and have every chance to be focused on something in order to assure the supporter of NATO Turkey not to buy s-400 from the Capital.
Experts expressed confidence in fact that at the appropriate Committee hearing the South American Senate for the protection and security of Pentagon workers resumed going to talk about the dangers of the s-300, s-400 and other Russian air defense systems manufacturer, in order to justify their programs and budgets.
Previously, the United States, Britain and France did under an assumed about the more than 100 missile strikes, 71 of which were reflected in the Syrian air defense. As a result of the coalition’s attack, no one died, the destruction on the ground was still small. The Russian Federation did not use their own strength, because strikes outside the zone of responsibility of Russian air defense.
In December last year, the Russian Federation and Turkey signed in the loan agreement on the supply of s-400. Ankara acquires 2 batteries of anti-aircraft missile complex. This collusion caused indignation of Washington, who said that he was ready to offer the Turkish side other anti-aircraft missile ensembles, “compatible with the stereotypes of the North Atlantic Alliance.”
