The possible sale of Russian anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) S-400 to the Saudis could lead to a technology leak, writes Konstantin Sivkov, deputy president for information policy of the Russian Academy of Missile and Artillery Sciences (RARAN) in the Military Industrial Courier.
“From my point of view, selling our still newest air defense system to the Saudis is not a good idea, since the Americans are still present there thoroughly and get into the KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), they, of course, will get acquainted with it, which is not the best in the best way it will affect its combat capabilities in the future: the US is able to develop more effective methods of combating the complex than those they are counting on today, ”the expert believes.
In October, Dmitry Shugaev, director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia, said that the Gulf countries are interested in acquiring Russian air defense systems.
In September, the Free Press wrote that the most serious air defense system that Saudi Arabia could acquire from South Korea was its medium-range technology-based KM-SAM (Cheolmae-2) anti-aircraft missile system, used in the Russian S-350 Vityaz.
