Why Are Russian S-300 Missile Systems In The United States?

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

What are Russian S-300 air defense systems doing in the United States?

Satellite images recently surfaced online after military enthusiasts discovered the installations which appeared to show elements of the Soviet-designed S-300PT system located at a US military range

The images sparked even greater interest after they were analyzed by the popular military site Defence Blog, which discussed their authenticity and possible reasons such Soviet missiles would be located at a US military range.

According to the Defence Blog analysis:

A 30N6 fire control system and semi-trailer arrangements of 5P85 Transporter Erector Launchers (TEL) have been seen in satellite imagery of the U.S. military range. All these vehicles are part of the S-300PT surface-to-air missile system.

S-300PТ system is designed for the defensive purpose of administrative, industrial and military buildings and objects against all kind air attacks.

Likely such Russian systems are obtained by the US Department of Defense via partner former Soviet countries like Ukraine.

Defence Blog explained that the US Army “commonly practices air assault with Russian-style air defense systems during training exercises.”

This adds “extra realism” during live simulated drills: “It uses styled or real combat vehicles and air defense systems to add extra realism to various exercises,” according to the report.

Months ago western nations as well as Israel expressed alarm over Russia transferring its deadly S-300 systems to the Syrian government following an uptick in brazen Israeli aerial attacks, which had further resulted in the accidental downing of a Russian reconnaissance plane near Syria’s coast, killing 15 crew members aboard.

US and Israeli jets operating in or near Syria will now face down newly trained Syrian operators utilizing S-300 missiles to thwart any threats. No doubt, US and Israeli defense planners are also ramping up force readiness against the S-300s, most likely by training F-35 jets on how to avoid and take them out.

  1. I can’t forget all those mid-east wars of the last few decades where Russian grants U.S. military free use of its airspace to fly supplies and munitions needed for the mission.


    1. The logistics to run this goy killer war is remarkable, they planned this farm credit BS to coincide with this war because of the extra food needed to feed the corporate employees. Were talking steak and eggs brunch every couple of hours. They’re going to build huge bases all over the place, basically small cities in the middle of nowhere.

      This war is going to feed the corporate goliath appetite. This war could last for years.

      It’s going to guarantee Trump another 4 years, no doubt about that, probably the main reason for this bullshit.

      1. Yeah, and even with Iran there are crazy logistics. And threats. Intimidation/show of force. There could also be major conflict at the very top levels in Iran. Will they heel? Will they be Saddamed/Gadaffied? Bombed to bits? And there’s always the Venezuela model of shove, the false humanitarian rescue. Either way, Iz gets the goods.

        Even though some never changed, there are a good number of people who are changing back into the humans of old where just a shove was a call to confrontation. I’m so tired of all manner of shoves, from the slightest to the deadliest. For so long they engage us in these wars and war-threats with all the beautiful life there is to live!! So engaged we must be, or totally and completely shoved.

        Mark, it really struck me today on the broadcast when you mentioned that all the food will go to feed the military (gotta feed the hired killers). That’s quite a connecting of the dots. Large and long-planned logistics.
