Russia deploys ultra-missile system in Syria in response to threats in the region
The Russian aerospace forces were conducting a mission in northern Syria by flying two SU-24 fighter jets to bomb targets, the Turkish government launched F-16 fighter jets. The Turkish F-16 fighter fired a missile and shot down the Russian SU-24 fighter jet. There were two pilots in the Russian fighter jet and as they ejected one of rebels shot the Russian pilots as they were descending by parachute. The Russian co-pilot managed to escape by concealing himself and using his radio beacon to alert his whereabouts to Russian military forces that were stationed at Khmeimim air base near the Syrian city of Latakia. A rescue effort by the Syrian Special Forces and Russian forces rescued the surviving Russian pilot. The surviving Russian pilot was rescued by a coordinated effort of Syrian Special Forces and the Russian military.
The next day the identity of the shooter who boasted to killing both Russian pilots turns out to be a Turkish terrorist Commander, Alpaslan Celik, a son of a Mayor in Turkey. The Turkish terrorist Alpaslan was recorded on video saying his Turkish militants shot and killed both Russian pilots as they were parachuting to the ground. We know now from video evidence that this is false as a Russian pilot did survive and gave interviews to news media at the Russian base.
The next day the Russian Aerospace forces launched a devastating aerial attack on the location where the Turkish terrorists rebels were located. Russian launched hell on the landscape using very powerful munitions.
The Russian military realizes the threat posed by the Turkish government and have decided to deploy from Mother Russia the S-400 missile defense system to Syria. Russia has given Turkey a “stark warning.” Military analyst Vladimir Anokhin told Radio Sputnik.
“Sending [S-400] is logical. We did not expect to be stabbed in the back. After all, Turkey is part of the anti-ISIL coalition. Earlier, Russia and the US reached an agreement on information sharing,” he added.
The S-400 has a speed of 4,800 meters a second and has a range of 250 miles. Moreover, you know it most likely the rate of speed is faster than what is listed on the infographic.
Maybe the Turkish government is involved in the purchasing of the oil being smuggled by the Islamic State (ISIS) as there is plenty of reports of the Turks buying the oil from ISIS. There is no hard evidence and the Russian military has mentioned this and has provided no proof. The Russian aviation forces have been conducting aerial attacks against the oil storage and distribution centers in northern Syria near the Turkish border. The Russians have also been bombing oil trucks that are standing and parked on the roadway like sitting ducks. A lonely oil truck is no match for the aerial bombardment when a fighter jet has your location in his GPS and there is no escaping it. The Russians are not going to stop the aerial campaigns and continue what they are calling counter-terrorism operations.
The US military is no doubt looking forward to seeing how the S-400 missile system operates in a combat environment.
