US warplanes could fly past Russian S-400s if the frequencies of the air defense systems obtained by the US army in Syria's Khmeimim air base, are successfully deciphered.
"The US army has obtained the frequencies of the Russian S-400 anti-air defense systems stationed in Syria. The US military have, however, not been able to decipher the codes yet," Russia's Free News reported, citing pilot Yuri Sytnik, a member of the Senior Officers Council of the Officers of Russia organization, as saying.
“The US is taking note of our frequencies, taking note of our systems which are starting to be deployed against it (the US’s Boeing P-8 Poseidon aircraft). Now they need to decipher our S-400 systems that are there. That’s why they’re being driven back. It’s a normal practice. They are testing our ability to repel. Reconnaissance is being done. This aircraft is an entire laboratory. There, a crew of 20, in a special cubicle, monitor the radio-electronics and collect footage,” said Sytnik.
The codes were intercepted by the US military using reconnaissance aircraft flying over Russia’s Khmeimim air base. The US Air Force can neutralize the threats posed by S-400s through deciphering the obtained codes. This is achieved through creation of virtual targets and hampering identification of aircraft.
US reconnaissance aircraft have earlier flown along the coast of Crimea, but have failed to identify the frequencies used by the Russian anti-air systems in the region. These frequencies differ from those used by the S-400 systems stationed in Syria, Free News report said.

The Russian military will receive 144 S-350 ‘Vityaz air defense systems by 2027, even as training has just commenced with their first system delivered in December. Almaz Antey will deliver 12 S-350s batteries, each consisting of 12 missile systems
The Israeli military bombed and destroyed a Pantsir-S air defence system (ADS) after its Syrian operator left behind a mobile phone providing a lead to the location of the ADS, a top official of the Russian manufacturer has admitted. Information of the Pantsir-S systems destruction emerged in an Israeli MoD video detailing the bombing of the system last month
Amidst Russia sending several battleships to the Eastern Mediterranean in the past couple of weeks, concerns have arisen over a new offensive in Syria. The Russian navy deployed three warships in quick succession: a large anti-submarine warfare destroyer
In retaliation to a series of rocket attacks on US-led coalition bases in the last few weeks, the US military carried out airstrikes in five locations in Iraq and Syria targeting multiple weapons and munitions depots linked to Iran, on Sunday. “In response to repeated Kata'ib Hizbollah (KH) attacks on Iraqi bases that host Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) coalition forces, US forces have conducted precision defensive strikes against five KH facilities in Iraq and Syria that will degrade KH's ability to conduct future attacks against OIR coalition forces,” the Pentagon said in a
