Turkish S-400s Create New Order In Mid East Airspace

An Israeli expert said that the critical question is, where will the Turks deploy the Russian system. "If it is deployed near the border with Syria it may endanger air forces that will attack Iranian controlled militias in Iraq," the Israeli source says.

TEL AVIV: Faced with Turkey’s purchase of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft systems, Israel has already altered its operational patterns while flying over neighboring Syria.

The delivery of the Russian made S-400 surface-air missiles by Turkey, will create a “new order” in Middle Eastern airspace, Israeli sources say.

An Israeli expert said that the critical question is, where will the Turks deploy the Russian system. “If it is deployed near the border with Syria it may endanger air forces that will attack Iranian controlled militias in Iraq,” this source says.

The expert added that the Israeli air force and every other air force that may be involved in operations against Iran or its proxies will now have to train to cope with the S-400, widely considered one of the world’s most formidable surface to air weapons.

Israeli experts who talked on condition of anonymity said that the situation will become critical if and when Russian forces leave Syria. “The S-400 operated by Turkey will be capable of following any activity of the IAF over Syria, and that is a totally new situation” one of the experts said.

1. DUH! - "If it is deployed near the border with Syria . . . "

Of course at east one of them will be - maybe more or all . . . .

Hell - look at a map - almost all of any potential threat lies to the South - ergo Syria, Iraq, Israel and beyond . . . .

That's why the hell the USA engaged them as NATO members in the first place, not because they like Turkey

sheesh!

3. The article makes a lot of assumptions. It also ignores the counter tech that is available.

If we take the example of Syria and its S-300s, the S-400 may never be operated without Russians. Its operation will also be well known well in advance of any strike. Also any relocation will be well known when it happens.

I would expect a series of missions to evaluate its capabilities once it is actually set up. We will then see how good it really is.

By treaty, it cannot be integrated into a net connected to NATO.

I expect noise but not a lot of effectiveness from it. It was bought for political purposes, not solid strategic ones.
