So, the IDF hit some Iranian targets in Syria following rocket attacks against Israel.

Some Russian style AA tries to defend itself, but appears to fail. Looks like a "state of the art" Pantsir S1 (SA-22) being blown up at the end. Poof!

The Pantsir LOOKS pretty impressive with an array of short and long range SAM's but it has to be operating to work.

According to a Russki general it was turned off. Of course, he could be lying. :lol:

Those state of the art Russian SAMs where supposed to be "game changers" in Syria. Guess it'll be really bad press if they suck...

You can actually see the first short range SAM maneuvering after the rocket motor burns out. It looks wildly off course, then corrects but still misses.

That Israeli weapon was some kind of cruise missile I think....just boring in steady from middle altitude. Seems like it should be a reasonably easy target.

Looks like the IDF has better shit than the Russkis. That's why they released the video..to embarrass the Russkis and intimidate the Iranians.

Here's what the Israeli's used for the strike according to the article I saw.

The Delilah missile is a cruise missile or loitering munition[1] developed in Israel by Israel Military Industries (IMI). It is designed to target moving and re-locatable targets with a circular error probable (CEP) of 1 metre (3 ft 3 in). Unlike a typical cruise missile, which is locked onto a pre-programmed target prior to launch, the Delilah missile's unique feature, as claimed by the manufacturer, is being able to loiter and surveil an area before a remote weapon systems officer, usually from the launching fighter aircraft, identifies the specific target of the attack.[2][3]

Quite interesting. The apparent 2 IR homing short range missile in the video can't find the thing. I wonder if it powers down and then does a terminal gravity/glide approach? The damn thing obviously works
