Russian Military Shows Wreckage Of US Missiles Intercepted In Syria


One unexploded Tomahawk cruise missile and one high accuracy air-launched missile launched by the US and its allies on Syria on April 14 have been brought to Moscow, the chief of the Russian General Staff’s main operations directorate Colonel-General Sergey Rudskoy said during a press briefing on April 25.

“Some of the missiles failed to reach the designated targets apparently due to technical failures, which created the risk of destroying civilian facilities and causing civilian casualties. Two of them, a cruise missile Tomahawk and a high-accuracy air-launched missile, have been brought to Moscow.You can see the Tomahawk’s warhead in this slide,” Colonel-General Rudskoy said.

The colonel-general added that Russian specialists are studying them.

The results of this work will be used to improve Russian weapon systems,” Rudskoy said.

The Russian military also revealed wreckage of the intercepted missiles.

SF recalls that the Pentagon says that the US, the UK and France launched 105 missile on targets in Syria on April 14According to the Pentagon, no missiles were intercepted and all of them hit their targets.

The Russian Defense Ministry says that 71 missiles were intercepted by the Syrian Air Defense Forces.

Colonel-General Rudskoy added that according to the updated data only 22 missile hits on targets in Syria can be confirmed.

The Pentagon’s version of the missile attack:

  • 76 missiles hit “Barzah Research and Development Center”
  • 22 missiles hit “Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Site”
  • 7 missiles hit “Him Shinshar CW Bunker”

Colonel-General Rudskoy further added that no of the attacked objects had been used by the Assad government to develop or to store chemical weapons.

The chief of the Russian General Staff’s main operations directorate added that Russia will supply the Syrian military with more air-defense systems and will continue to train Syrian air defense troops.

“Russian specialists will continue training Syrian military personnel, and will assist in mastering new air defense systems, which will be supplied in the near future,” Rudskoy said.


are we there yet Leakanthrophy Wed, 04/25/2018 - 17:43 Permalink

Nothing good comes out of the middle east. Why are we there again? Someone wants us there, but it is not any American that I know. As an American I know hundreds of others. No one I know wants us in the middle east. So who exactly is the puppet master making puppets go where no puppet wants to go?

Thank god the Russia's have the technology to stop US missiles. This might make them think twice before starting WW3.


BTW why does trump keep using hundreds of cruise missiles at $2 mil a pop to bomb some empty old derelict warehouse on the edge of town or some rotten old outbuildings near a airfield? If Trump really wants to piss of Assad and Putin he needs to "get smart and streetwise" and aim to be more budget conscious, may i suggest 1) Prank calls late at night 2) Shit in a jiffy bag and post it to them or 3) Order Pizza's and taxi cabs to their home addresses. Surely some of the big wigs in the CIA could organise this. 


We live in truly hellish times.... Thank god for my support group on FaceBook.

What's the point of Russian long, medium and short range missle defense when your complexes end up rubble piles?  Russia should of just saved it's missles, the "defended "( not ) targets were destroyed.

Turd World Thug Customer: "So for these billions of dollars, these missle systems will protect my palaces and bases from the West Running Dogs nissles?"

Russian Salesmen  " Ah, They will be destroyed"

Thug: "Then why buy them?  They are like cardboard, but expensive and I will be in debt, and my buildings destroyed?"

Russian Salesman : " That is true.  But we offer reconstruction loans and have long relations with Russian construction firms.  They get a lot of work through us.  What'a say, ya wanna buy some missles today?"

Really, lets take a look at Trumps character and his advisors. We are told that 'options' were presented to trump. After trump's 'huuge' twaatts ( big price to pay Syria/Iran/Russia )he gave the go-ahead for 105 shinny and new missiles to hit abandoned chemical/research facilities. Really

see photo man atop of 'chemical weapons factory'  same day. 76 missiles or 34 tones of high explosive/ overkill????…:

To note 3 days B4 Israel in a act of international aggression bombed a airfield/planes killing several.

You see the pentagon would also like to see how their missile strikes would go against a defended target. So I can see Trump ordering a research site AND military airport/planes strikes (however planes were under Russian airport/guard Khmeimim)

He hit a military airport last year thus another reason why Trump would like to hit-other targets. So Trump could have hit the base the Israel hit last week without triggering a major Russian response.


Maybe Trump has a biggly sense of humor. He knows that most of the 'mission' failed because no photos of the damage Military airports/ and or reporters asking Q's about the 'hits' on Military installations. So The Pentagon 'Donald Cooked' a unprotected, point missile defense, of 'factories' and Full chemical Ali of 100% success. SO Trump with a sense of humour knowing the missed/destructed Tomahawks tweeted 'Mission Accomplished'....or maybe not

Off topic

It is easy to see the Russians shooting down 71 Tomahawk missiles,check out their Top speeds

Tomahawk       550 mph

S 200  speed     5,600 mph

You can easily see that a S200 hitting the slow Tomahawk it has a closing speed difference of 5000 miles a hour.

However the strike was on several military airports which were well guarded thus all that attempted were shot down. So the Publicity hound Pentagoon gave a chemical Ali of 100% success. So the made up story was they went for 3 (unprotected ) research facilities, while the plan was to also hit 3-4 military airports which were protected thus so destroyed and that's what went on.

Its not the missile speed, it is the radar, dectection and network.  You can't hit what you don't see.

Below roof top height, in uneven terrain , even best, alert ground air defense has, at best, a 2 minute window for detection.   And that would be a momentary blip.  Not to mention 100+ flooding the network with a time on target, all, in about 10 minutes or less.

Yeah, good luck with that.

Remember Baghdad and cruise missiles flying between buildings, or through Chinese Embassy?

The US, Israel have been going through Russian supplied Air Defense networks for 50 years.  At will.  

By the way, since only a few supposedly got through, and destroyed the complex, there must be massive off target damage from the majority, supposedly, of high explosives missiles crashing/shot down in urban area.  Hundreds must be killed.  Odd that Syria/Russia has said/shown zero.

... by golly, you must be the first person to ever notice the spec?!

Ever have a Tomahawk fly over your head at 550mph @ <100'? The ONLY vulnerability is jammer penetrating AESA look-down-shoot-down aircraft radar guiding a fancy missile which Russia has never demonstrated in action or the golden muslim BB ... if they crash of their own accord, the missile is multi-redundant to dump data and operating system. The dang things are self defending, decoying, flying jammers. The US is a tactical missile hegemon. No one on the planet knows how to shot more, quickly, accurately and more reliably than the US.

12" assorted pieces of a 20' missile? The pieces I see of Tomahawks are a burned out booster and a nose cone blown away by an intentional air detonation. There is absolutely nothing in any of the scraps Russia is showing that has any value. The French and English are to be commended that this first ever use of two different EU missiles left worthless shrapnel.

Syria killed way more of its own folks shooting all their air defense and artillery straight up in the air. Syrian/Russian air defense images show no hint of a target lock. You have any idea how big a blast that crap makes when it hits the ground?

The US does a lot of stupid stuff, but this ordnance is not an example.

Those 105 shinny and new missiles that hit abandoned chemical/research facilities in your opinion look way more like deep ground penetrators to my BDA eye. I'm betting the bunker damage is colossal 100' underground. The right US machinery for the delivery of deep penetrators were in the attack.
