ロシア製対艦ミサイルのシリア供与はタルトゥース港を守るため

1番目の英語記事に一通りのことは書いてあるが、2番目のロシア語からの翻訳が詳しい。3つ目の記事タイトルは、「プーチンがバラクの顔にビンタ」(笑)。

4つ目の記事は、ミサイルは過去数週間のいずれかの時点でシリアに到着していた(早すぎだろ・笑)。これが事実なら、イスラエルがロシアに頼み込んでいた時より遙か前に、ロシア側は出荷を終わらせていた。シリアは、イスラエルは何を騒いでいるのかなぁと笑って眺めていたわけだ。

ミサイル輸出を思いとどまるよう必死に交渉していた、あの外交努力は何だったのか。イスラエルと米国が無様に見える。これがモサドとCIA and/or DIAの情報収集能力(笑)。

MOSCOW, September 20 (RIA Novosti) - Russian-made mobile anti-ship missile systems sold to Syria could be used to protect a Russian naval supply and maintenance site near Syria's Mediterranean port of Tartus, a Russian arms trade expert said on Monday.

Russia earlier announced it would honor a 2007 contract on the delivery of several Bastion anti-ship missile systems armed with SS-N-26 Yakhont supersonic cruise missiles to Syria, despite U.S. and Israel security concerns.

Syria needs to shield a 600-km stretch of its coastline from potential amphibious assaults.

"One of the purposes of the deployment of Bastion missile systems in Syria is to ensure the protection of the Russian naval site in Tartus," said Igor Korotchenko, head of a Moscow-based think tank on the international arms trade.

The Yakhont missile has a range of 300 kilometers, the capacity to carry a 200-kilogram warhead and the unique ability of being able to cruise several meters above the water surface, making it difficult to detect and intercept.

According to Korotchenko, none of the world's existing warships could thwart a Yakhont missile attack.

The Soviet-era naval maintenance site near Tartus is Russia's only military foothold in the Mediterranean. Russia plans to modernize the facility to accommodate large warships, including missile cruisers and even aircraft carriers after 2012.

"Modern means of naval defense simply can not intercept such missiles," - said the director TSAMTO.

"In addition, the Russian side reserves the right of intrusive inspections, ie inspections without right of refusal on the ground, where the data centers in Syria," - said the head TSAMTO.

According to experts of the Centre, this complex, developed by the military-industrial corporations, NGOs, engineering, designed to defeat surface ships of different classes and types from the airborne compounds, convoys, ship and aircraft carrier battle groups, as well as single ships and ground-based radio-goals under intense fire and electronic countermeasures. The range of the complex is up to 300 kilometers. PBRK "Bastion" capable of defending against enemy landing operations stretch of coast length more than 600 kilometers.

As an additional customer equipment may be placed propelled over the horizon radar detection of air and surface targets and targeting "Monolith-B" or a helicopter target acquisition radar system.

Time of deployment of the "Monolith" from traveling to combat is less than 5 minutes.

The height of the missile Yakhont on the final trajectory is 10-15 meters above sea level, speed - 750 meters per second. The warhead missiles to deliver 200 kilograms of explosives goal, which is undermining the lesion within the facility, which provides one hundred percent destruction of targets at the first hit.

The report on delivery of Russian anti-ship missiles Syria Yakhont "became one of the central themes of the Israeli media. Well done in Washington, a statement of Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, was perceived in Israel as an insult.

Netanyahu: delivery Yakhont "Syria is problematic

The newspaper Yediot Ahronot said it was a slap in the face of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, less than two weeks ago returned from Moscow after the signing of a bilateral agreement on cooperation in defense sphere.

The publication quoted sources in Jerusalem said that this time Russia has gone too far, and that the delivery Yakhont "Syria frees Israel from the obligation not to supply weapons to third countries hostile to Russia.

Recall that after the armed conflict in South Ossetia in summer 2008, Israel agreed not to supply weapons to Georgia, including unmanned aircraft.

The Israeli authorities intend to demand from Russia an explanation of its intentions to put the Middle East, weapons capable to change the strategic situation in the region. The correspondent of radio station "Kol Israel" Shmuel Tal notes that because the missiles threaten not only Israel's fleet, but the U.S., Israel expects that the White House intervened.

Anti-complex "Yakhont. Reference

Antiship cruise missile (ASM) Yakhont "is intended to fight with surface naval groups and single ships under heavy fire and electronic countermeasures. Work on the creation of tactical anti-complex of the fourth generation began in the late 70's.

Complex from the outset conceived as a universal: it was supposed to post on submarines, surface ships and boats, aircraft and shore-based launchers. According to the degree of "universality" he had to beat foreign "record holder" in this field - the American PKR Harpoon. Later created a modification that allows us to launch from shore installations.

Distinctive features of missiles Yakhont are: horizon firing range, full autonomy of military use ("fire and forget"), a set of flexible ("low", "high-low) trajectories; high supersonic speed at all parts of the flight, full unification for a wide range of media (surface ships of all major classes of submarines and ground launchers); invisibility for modern radar (stealth technology).



Syria has received Russian missiles, diplomats say

Shipments of advanced surface-to-sea and sea-to-sea missiles arrived in Syria from Russia in recent weeks, Western diplomats say, despite Israeli pressure on Russia to cancel the deal.

Syria has already received shipments of advanced surface-to-sea and sea-to-sea missiles from Russia, Western diplomats said on Sunday. The weapons, they said, reached the Syrian Army at some point in the last few weeks despite intense Israeli pressure on Moscow to scuttle the deal.

The diplomats told Haaretz that Damascus continues to proclaim its desire for peace with Israel, but at the same time is deepening its ties with the radical regional axis of Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas.

The Bashar Assad regime recently supplied Hezbollah with sophisticated weapons, like the Iranian-made M-600 missile, and has also begun providing Hamas with cutting-edge anti-tank weaponry that it had previously supplied only to Hezbollah. Syria is also said to be funding Hamas training camps in the Damascus area.

Meanwhile, Syria also seems to be involved in the quiet war unfolding recently between Hamas and Egyptian authorities. On Saturday an Arabic-language website reported that Mohammed Dababish, a top Hamas security official in the Gaza Strip, was arrested at Cairo International Airport while en route to Damascus following a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

Since the rocket fire on Eilat and the Jordanian port of Aqaba last month, the Egyptians have clamped down on Hamas leaders' activity and prevented them from leaving Gaza during the month of Ramadan.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a meeting of Likud ministers on Sunday that Moscow's arms sale to Syria is "problematic."

"We've known about this deal for a while, and we held meetings with Russians at every level. Unfortunately the sale went through," he said. "We are living with the threat of a new variety of missiles and rockets, and we must have a military response to them." Netanyahu cited the advanced F-35 fighter jet as part of that military response.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman also responded on Sunday to news that the Russian arms deal had gone through. "This complicates the situation; it doesn't contribute to stability or efforts to bring about peace," he told Army Radio. "We will make our position known to the Russians. The defense minister raised the issue during his visit to Russia, but unfortunately things didn't work out."

The P-800 is a highly accurate cruise missile capable of traveling 300 kilometers and delivering a 200-kilogram payload. The projectile is designed to travel just meters above the surface of the water, making it extremely difficult to identify by radar or intercept.
