The American MIM-104 Patriot missile defense system (ABM) without the use of the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aviation complex for radio-detection and guidance is equivalent to the Buk-M2 Russian anti-aircraft missile system. This was stated by a military expert Alexei Leonkov, reports RT.
“If he is not there, then the Patriot in its characteristics is approaching the Buk-M2.” The US, trying to inflate the anti-Iranian campaign from this story (attacks on Saudi Aramco facilities in Saudi Arabia), shot themselves in the foot, because in reality it turned out that their complex was absolutely useless, ”the specialist said.
Earlier in September, a Russian Defense Ministry source said that American-made air defense systems (air defense systems) were unable to repel an attack by drones in Saudi Arabia due to a mismatch with the declared characteristics.
The attack on Saudi Aramco facilities in Saudi Arabia occurred on the morning of September 14th. In the incident, Riyadh and Washington accuse Tehran, which supports the Hussite Yemeni rebels who claimed responsibility for the attack. According to the Saudi Ministry of Defense and Aviation, 18 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and 7 cruise missiles carried out an attack on Saudi Aramco facilities. US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, commenting on the inaction of the MIM-104 Patriot in an attack on Saudi Aramco facilities in Saudi Arabia, said that air defense systems do not always show the desired result.
