New Satellite Image Showcase Syrian Base Housing Russian Anti-aircraft Missile Systems

Latest satellite image emerged on social media showing an active air defense base in Syria bearing latest-generation Russian anti-aircraft missile systems.

The greyscale satellite picture shows what appears to be a battery-sized detachment of either highly-modernized S-300 or newer S-400 model strategic anti-aircraft missiles, Al Masdar news agency reported Tuesday.

The base has been geolocated to a highly-militarized area on the provincial borders of Tartus and Hama Governorates.

However, the report does not confirm whether the missile system operators belong to the Syrian Armed Forces or the Russian Armed Forces, but the report quoted sources claim as saying that the base was also used to launch Oniks cruise missiles from Bastion-P transporters late last year which would indicate that the S-300/400s are a Russian asset.
