Could Russia Shoot Down an F-22 Stealth Fighter Over Syria?
War Is Boring

Yawn…the capabilities of stealth and the radar X sections are known and can be modelled. What is a complete unknown is the actually capability of the S-400 and latest S-300s which the F-22 and F-35 were not designed to defeat; these systems are much newer; the original S-300 was around when the F-22 and F-35 was developed but it is a much different beast compared to the newer systems. The comment from the F-22 pilot is typical over-confidence I would expect from a US pilot. No one except the Russians know what the S-400 can do and given that they are clearly warning the US they must be very confident they can bring down stealth aircraft; given they can make their own I tend to believe them.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
