1. When people ask why getting hands on some S1 Pantsir (belonging to UAE) in Libya makes a huge news in the West, my answer is simple--because it is the best air defense, as is all nomenclature of Russian-made air defense complexes, in the world even in their export variants with significantly reduced combat capabilities. But even those are enough to be superior to anything anyone produces in the world. As Israeli Air Force learned it a hard way today, once Syrian Air Defense Forces get their combat readiness up, they intercepted all 12 guided missiles launched by IAF at Damascus suburb and airport (in Russian). This kind of news will never make it into the Western media. Here, you can see the work of Siryan AD S1 Pantsir and Buk M2 intercepting Israeli's missiles yesterday.
2. In other news:
A US warship docked in Sudan Monday a day after a Russian frigate arrived in the same key Red Sea port where Moscow is planning to establish a naval logistics base, an AFP correspondent said. The arrival of the guided-missile destroyer USS Winston S. Churchill to Port Sudan follows Washington's delisting of Khartoum as state sponsors of terrorism, following the April 2019 ouster of strongman Omar al-Bashir.
It is not "planned", it is already signed and Russia will have not base but "Point of Material-Technical Supply" (PMTO). It is not quite "base". Tartus IS base, Port-Sudan is not a base but a provision point, albeit with some important clarifications such as the ability to keep there a nuclear powered ships and subs. Here is Admiral Grigorovich in Sudan. yesterday (in Russian).
3. In other news, US media still remain crude propaganda tools, as are most US "journalists" working there and US remains completely delusional about Russia. This cannot be helped and will continue to deteriorate because they are one trick ponies and ignorant to boot. Well...
