Turkey recognizes fake on destruction of Pantsir-S air defense missile system - losses are several times less

The Turkish side acknowledged that there was no “genocide" of Russian weapons in Syria and Libya.

Contrary to the statements of the Turkish side that earlier in the past few months no less than 26 Russian-made Pantsir-S air defense missile systems were destroyed in Libya, it became known that this information is untrue - we are talking about only 23 air defense systems defenses destroyed over the past few years, not only by the Turkish side, but also by Israel

Considering the fact that about ten Russian-made complexes were destroyed by the Israeli military in Syria, and 5 Russian-made complexes were destroyed in Libya, confirmed by photographs from the place, experts believe that, at best, the Turkish military managed to eliminate only in Syria about 8 units of this equipment, although initially Ankara claimed 22 destroyed by the Shell-S air defense system that were in service with the SAA.

Specialists in turn believe. that this figure is too high, since the Turkish military did not provide any real evidence, except for the mounted video from Turkish drones.

On the other hand, the Russian Defense Ministry media previously recognized the losses of the Pantsir-S air defense missile defense system in both Syria and Libya, and although the exact number was not indicated, experts believe that we are talking about a total of 13-15 Russian-made complexes. some of which were not on combat duty. It is noteworthy that in its report Turkey refers to the statement of the Russian defense department, and not to its own evidence.
