Air Base Khmeimim


Hmeimim airbase completely shut off from air strikes

Hmeimim airbase became an impregnable fortress.

Published satellite images of the Russian military airbase “Hmeimim” in Syria point to the fact. that the military facility on which at least three dozen aircraft of the VKS of Russia are deployed is completely protected from any attacks, which, obviously, is the reason why the militants almost completely stopped attacking it.

In addition to the Russian anti-aircraft missile systems C-400 "Triumph" - the most long-range air defense systems in the world, protect the airbase C-300, air defense systems "Tor-M2U" and ZRPK "Pantsir-S", which ensures reliable protection of this military facility. Moreover, an equally important role is played by Russian electronic jamming systems, which impede the operation of enemy drones, interfere with satellites and reconnaissance aircraft. According to officially unconfirmed data, the SPM-2М Mercury-BM systems are also located on the territory of the Russian military airbase “Khmeimim”, which allow to carry out the detonation of ammunition equipped with radio-fuses.

“The Russian military air base in Syria is better protected than any other military base in the Middle East. Obviously, the military object will be able to repel even a massive blow. ”, - the expert marks.

It should be clarified that the militants regularly publish information about successful attacks on the Russian military airbase, but all the information on this subject is fake.
