BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force bombed Syria’s Aleppo Governorate after passing through two neighboring Arab countries, MilitaryArms.Ru reported on April 1st, citing the Israeli Debka publication.

According to the report, the Israeli F-35 stealth fighters entered eastern Syria from western Iraq on the night of March 27th.

Prior to entering Iraqi airspace, the Israeli F-35s allegedly traveled from their home base to neighboring Jordan, the Debka report stated.

Once the Israeli Air Force reached the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian air defense units allegedly fired its newly acquired S-300 missiles towards the enemy aircraft.

However, the Debka report claims that the Syrian air defense units were unable to hit the Israeli F-35s during the bombing of Aleppo on the evening of March 27th.

Despite these claims, a source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar shortly after the attack that their forces attempted to intercept the enemy projectiles using their S-200 system.

The source did, however, make the same claim about the Israeli Air Force using the F-35 during the attack on Aleppo city and its surroundings.

Due to the F-35’s ability to fly at a high altitude, the Israeli warplane was able to evade detection by the Syrian air defense units.

This attack was similar to the Israeli Air Force’s bombardment of the Iranian military base in the southern Aleppo town of Al-Safira last year; they also used an F-35 to strike this installation.

@Wolfgang, Y, smoke of war – no more.

Would mean they consider other routes more dangerous.

Debka is totally bullshïtting any way. Considering the distance, this would have required mid-air refuelling, Jordans don’t allow IDF overflights…

Daeshbags-Sux

Daeshbags-Sux

moreover, Syria having no AWACS, no need for F-35, even with S-300 around, low altitude penetration does the job. Moreover, there are rumours…

about Israelis having installed GBU-39 on EXTRA/Rampage rockets, so range seriously extends. EXTRA artillery rocket already ranges 150km

Daeshbags-Sux

Daeshbags-Sux

, the Rampage (air launched version) il likely to range more, so if you add a SDB able to glide for 110km… No surprise…

if nothing was detected. They can have done a low altitude launch from e.g. around 35.308401,34.837646 while staying under radar horizon.

to discuss stealth : 100% phantasms! Moreover, militaries are deliberately more than often telling BS to the press!

Just consider yours : their % of GDP spent in shrunk by 75-80% in 50 years, they can’t even keep the 2 thirds of the Lüftwaffe airborne.

@Daeshbags-Sux, right, almost in reach.

From the sea if You trespass NATO territory or via Latakia. 😉

Or if You go via Homs and then a little to the South like the described route. Only that this Lebanon Syria route saves fuel and flight time.

@Daeshbags-Sux, even with AWACS the distance from the sea is not all that big if You avoid interceptors and air defense stationed in the passed area.

Well, you have to fly around 20km sea + 50km land into hostile territory. Entering from a sea area is really hot since you have no relief to hide behind, you’re easy to be dealt with by SHORAD defence.

@Daeshbags-Sux, the distances involved back and forth via Jordan. Iraq are IMHO within the limits of the 2,200 plus km of the plane even without additional external fuel tanks.

But Jordan does not allow this.

Looking at the map I’d go via the sea Turkey or Latakia, else via Lebanon. The routes along the M4 or M 5 are likely. Since the IDF are constantly trespassing in Lebanon. M 5 direction is not so close to Russian or Turkish radar installations.

Moreover, F-35 still has no drop tanks available, and if these were, it’d lose its stealth features using these 🙂 Trace a line Aleppo-Latakia (144km), add 100km then you know from where the SDB/EXTRA combo has been launched. I don’t think this combo is only a rumour : it makes perfect sense : the EXTRA rocket is cheap, GBU-39 is $40K and its small diameter makes the fit easy while you’re likely to end with 250-300km range. A cruise missile like Popeye-Turbo or Delilah is way more expensive : just consider the prices of a SCALP-EG or Tomahawk, ouch! Combining… Read more »

@Daeshbags-Sux, or trace the distance from Alexandretta and You do not need a combo with much higher range. Less than 150 km.

So if Syria launched S-200 to F-35 over Aleppo from hundred of Km…no stealth jet at all?…beside in the last year attack vs Aleppo ..pieces of S-200 fell in Turkey…it is to say that somekind of radar( P-18 long wave) detect F-35….

Low frequency radars have no problem to detect the kind of stealth USA and China use, it’s barely useless under 3GHz, that’s why we didn’t invested in this…

but instead into active cancellation of radar waves.

I think you mean pieces of S-200 that felt into Jordan after having been intercepted by Arrow. They said they tried to intercept incoming missiles/bombs with S-200, not…

Daeshbags-Sux

… an aircraft. The basic S-200 targetting radar barely doesn’t sees F-35 unless pretty close, but extra systemic optional ones can, and so do all early warning radars.

Meanwhile, land radars see their ranges drasticly reduced at low altitude : At 100m altitude, the horizon already masks you at only 35-40km. Look for “French Crazy Pilots” on Youtube, you may see deep penetration drills sometimes at only 10-20m altitude. At these altitudes, you add the cluttering of radar waves and the Earth’s magnetic field to the horizon effect in the equation, then you’re very very difficult to detect. Now another method to totally avoid detection, where you also don’t need F-35 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J04xaaQjQ40 The movie was really well documented BTW. Here, the pitch is a fighter-jet is stolen… Read more »
