Syrian Army Utilizing Modern Electronic System to Deactivate US-Made TOW Missile

22 January 2018 18:41


The Syrian Army is vastly operating modern anti-missile defense System that can deactivate the US-made anti-tank TOW missiles used by the terrorists in the battlefields, a Russian media outlet reported on Monday.

The Arabic-language website of RT reported that the army is vastly using Mirage-2 Electronic Defense System to deactivate the US-manufactured TOW anti-tank missiles.

The Arabic RT further said that the System that is mounted on the army tanks, armored and light vehicles is capable of deactivating TOW missiles.

The Mirage-2 System is equipped with more noise breaks in comparison with the older version of Mirage-1.

Military sources conformed earlier this month that the Syrian air defense forces deployed several heavily-modified S-125 Pechora batteries (a Soviet-designed system originally built in the 1960s) to the Marj Ruhayyil airbase South of Damascus city.

The modernized variant in question was reportedly the M2 version of the S-125 Pechora, which in addition to having an improved kill probability record, was technically capable of tracking and intercepting low-flying cruise missiles.

The upgrading of the Marj Ruhayyil base’s local air defense network is likely a response to the increased number of air attacks carried out by Israeli warplanes against Syrian military assets in the province of Damascus and neighboring regions over the course of 2017.
