Middle Eastern a trick in the service of Moscow.
After unknown terrorists destroyed using attack drones to refineries in Saudi Arabia, the world became clear the weakness of the American anti-aircraft missile systems (SAMS) Patriot.
The fact that it was the American SAM had to cover up the Saudi oil refineries from any air attacks, but these same vaunted Patriot air defense system missed attack made with an improvised drones, the Yemeni rebels.
Of course, that the loud failure of the Patriot air defense system has caused wide discussion in the professional environment.
One of the founders of missile defense Uzi Rubin advised the Saudi authorities to acquire the “Shell-S1” is the American analog of crafts, indicating that a Russian air defense missile systems “Pantsir-S1” is much better adapted to deal with stealth targets than Patriot.
Of course, we are not talking about the fact that Israel encourages Saudi Arabia to buy Russian air defense system. Recommends it one of the greatest experts in the field ABOUT acting as a private person. But we must not forget about a strong friendship of Prime Minister Netanyahu with Putin. So the status of an individual expert to a ruby might be just the trick that will push Saudi Arabia on the purchase of military equipment from Russia.
