Because that’s just an excuse. The Israelis are already using their F-35 in Syria where Russian S400 are stationed, and what happened ? They keep destroying Syrian air defenses like there’s no tomorrow.
People think that AA are some sort of magic things that will magically stop any enemy fighters jet incursion into their territory but that’s not how it works. The only thing AA will provide you is to gain some time for your Air Force.
damn I was worried for a while, they are emitting signals so our E7 Awacs have ESM capabilities and Interesting technologies to localize enemy F 35 or F22, care to eloborate a bit further since it realy sounds interesting like other E7s i.e Korean, Australian, UKs E7s have this Interesting technologies as well or only we have it?
There is little difference between latest version of S-300 which Syrians possess (S-300PMU2) and S-400.The S400 in Hmeinm Airbase were never activated during Israeli air raids.
Those were S200 and S300.
Russian generals disagree with you original message + google translate:And with those 2 older versions activated the Israelis attacked Damascus only from out the Lebanese airspace using the northern mountains
No Israeli F-35 was ever lost.and a Russian reconnaissance plane as cover because the SAM’s chased them non-stop and they lost at least one F35 due to “maintenance problems.”
No Israeli F-35 was ever lost.
Syrian air defences are under Russian control, majority operated by Syrian techicians, a not-so-secretive reason why Israeli pilots feel so free to shoot those defences. And Russia would like to avoid an extensive Israeli retaliation, and thus the humiliation, so she is reluctant to press any buttons! Last time a Syrian missile (out of dozens fired) shot an Israeli F16, Kheil HaAvir wiped a third of Syrian air defences off the planet. Russia’s limited logistic capabilities, Ukraine’s mud, the look of Russian troops heading back to motherland in plastic bags, you can add several other reasons.Well the Israelis only targeted the Syrian ones. I'm not sure about the efficiency of the Syrian crew but there is a big chance that it is the case.
Well It's very likely, why flying F-35 otherwise ?
We don't know if they managed to pick up the F-35 on their radar. For that to happen the Israelis have to fly pretty close to the S-400 but I don't think that was the case. Maybe @500 can provide more details.
Don't know about these rumors but it seems believable to me. When fighters jet are being locked by an air defense system they can see it on their RWR and launch an Anti-Radiation missle at them.
Interesting article, claiming Russian Nebo-M Radars being able to detect stealth planes. Not just stealth planes but hypersonic missiles from a distance of 600km.
No Longer 'stealth', Russia Can Detect US F-22 And F-35 Fighter JetsThe United States may be nervous, after its fighter jets with stealth technology, the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II, are said to be detectable by radar.voi.id

F-35 was not lost. Israel reported about F-35 hit by bird, safely landed and repaired and Russian trolls based on this report invented silly story that it was hit by S-200.
