Pictures: First Russian electronic warfare equipment arrived in Syria
Several media outlets published several pictures showing Russian electronic warfare equipment “jamming system” at Humaimem airport in Syria, in preparation for the transfer of S-300 batteries.
The Russian daily Izvestiya reported that the first batch of electronic warfare devices had been unloaded to the Hameimim base by an El-76 plane on Monday.
The newspaper said that the function of these groups is jamming on radars, communications systems and control air crafts that could attack Syrian territory, including the surrounding areas of the Mediterranean Sea.
During a Monday briefing, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Moscow will deliver the S-300 air defense systems to Syria within two weeks as an adequate response to Israel’s role in the downing of the Russian Il-20 plane last week.
