Since posting this translation, I have posted it at Quora in reponse to a question:
In the following is our translation of an article on Russian electronic warfare systems from zen.yandex.ru. Comment and notes [in brackets] are by Vince Dhimos.
There is much debate whether the Russians or Chinese have developed a radar system that can “see” stealth aircraft like the F-35. But as we say in the West, there is more than one way to skin a cat, and the Russians are geniuses at finding ways around problems like this. They have found a way without using radar. (Although it is believed that they have a super radar that can in fact alert them to the approach of “stealth” aircraft).
These systems are one of the many powerful reasons why the US and Turkey should leave Syria ASAP. And why Israel may eventually be forced to stop bombing Syria.
Russian electronic warfare systems disable F-35 electronics
14 August 2019
Only lazy people are not talking about the potentials of Russian electronic warfare. These capabilities are being field tested in Syria. EW systems are being tested under real combat conditions. Their effect is being tested not only on makeshift, though high-tech, drones used by terrorists to attack Russia's main military base in Syria at the Khmeimim airfield, but also against Israeli aircraft and other equipment and the so-called anti-Syrian coalition.
We have heard repeated statements of American and Israeli experts about the possibility of impacting the the GPS positioning system.
Western analysts insist that the Russian electronic warfare systems cannot suppress the on-board systems of modern aircraft. But if so, then what caused problems with the Israeli F-35 fighters?
Other experts say that Russian electronic warfare systems “kill” sophisticated on-board electronics even at a considerable distance from the source of suppression. And what is an airplane without electronics? It becomes similar to the famous Russian An-2 aircraft [a Soviet plane used for crop dusting], popularly referred to as the "maize." Electronics controls all systems, from positioning to the operation of combat fire systems. Without electronics, the F-35, however, like any modern aircraft, turns into a mere piece of iron. The only scary thing about it is the roar of its engine.
The American publication The National Interest reported that, according to its information, in Syria, the Russian military is testing electronic warfare equipment and special emphasis is placed on testing in confrontation with the modern F-35 stealth aircraft, much touted by the Pentagon. Recently, the Israeli military reported that some kind of electronic warfare system has begun to operate in the Golan Heights area occupied by Israel and its suppression extends to a depth of 150 km. There is no report as to what kind of system it is.
In service with the Russian army are more than 50 systems for various purposes. Russian scientists and manufacturers work very productively, electronic warfare systems are constantly being improved, and their characteristics are improving. Russia has become a world leader in this area.
