New satellite photo shows the preperation of S-300 in Syria

A satellite image has appeared over semi-official information outlets which reportedly shows a battery of four Syrian S-300 systems in the Masyaf area of Syria’s Hama province as of the 13th of November 2018.

The picture, originally released by Imagesatintl (iSi), shows what appears to be four S-300 launchers, an S-300 radar, other equipment and “mobile structures” related to the S-300’s deployment, some of which is camouflaged for the obvious purposes of security.

Picture analysis conducted by iSi concludes that the particular set of S_300 units shown in the image are not operational (i.e. not ready to engage air targets).

Syria has received at least 24 S_300 units (in three divisions) from Russia via an emergency reinforcement effort that began almost two months ago.

Russia claims the version it provided to the Syrian military is fully upgraded and capable of detecting even so-called ‘stealth’ fighters such as the F-35.
