The Turkish analogue of the Russian ZRPK Pantsir was destroyed less than 48 hours after being transferred to Libya.


The Turkish analogue of the Russian ZRPK "Pantsir-S" was able to hold out in Libya for less than 48 hours.

Fighters and bombers destroyed the Turkish ACV-30 Korkut complexes, which in Ankara are called analogs of the Russian Pantsir-S air defense missile systems, just 48 hours after they were deployed at the Al-Watia airbase in Libya. The strike, judging by the available data, was inflicted by MiG-29 fighters, and probably by Su-24 bombers, and although the ACV-30 Korkut complexes were supposed to protect the Turkish fighters deployed here, the latter were also destroyed by the airstrike.

“After the destruction of the Turkish MIM-23 Hawk air defense systems in Libya, Ankara became concerned about the safety of its military in this North African country. Additional anti-aircraft missile systems and electronic warfare systems were transferred to the Al-Watia airbase. Now, on the territory of the main stronghold of the Turks in Libya, the Korkut self-propelled anti-aircraft gun was first seen, which in Turkey was repeatedly called the “analogue” of the Russian Pantsir-C1 air defense missile system, despite the fact that the ZSU is armed only with artillery and does not have missiles ”- сообщает Edition "Reporter".

Of greatest interest among specialists is the fact that for the effective operation of the ACV-30 Korkut, special radars were used, which were supposed to detect approaching fighters and bombers from a distance of several tens of kilometers, however, as it turned out, the air strike was applied from a close distance, and therefore, there is an assumption that the fighters, using the BKO Talisman, simply "hammered" the Turkish radars, after which they successfully bombed a military air base.
