S-300 missile system: Russia to upgrade Syrian air defences

So now Syria has the S-300 and Israel has the F-35A (which the article doesn't mention). What's going to happen?

Poll is not HMES compliant. F-35's will destroy themselves, and the S-300's will shoot down some airliners.

The F-35 has had an above-and-beyond safety record so far, HOWEVER, the whole reason Russia is giving them the SAMs in the first place is because the Syrians shot down a Russian recon plane on accident.

If you ignore the fact that it might oxygen starve the pilot, and ejecting could kill them (and that's just the start), sure.

Airliners don't have Russian military transponders.

The plane ate a fucking fuel basket and still landed safely. Find another jet that can do that without crashing in the water.

Literally every aircraft ever made that has more than 1 jet engine? Kinda curious that you didn't catch on that it ate a fuel basket instead of refuelling, too.

That's a good point. That was a very simple observation that I missed.

This is unacceptable. I sentence myself to even more drinking!

Now what simple observation am I missing for not blaming the F-35 for the Hornet having lost the basket?

MiG 29s, designed in the 70s, is far superior to F35.

F35 is a costly flying rock.
