Syrian air force put Turkish jets under radar lock

Syrian air force put Turkish jets under radar lock for second time in 10 days

A Turkish F-16 jet carrying out a routine patrol duty in the southern province of Hatay was put under a radar lock by Syrian missile batteries for a period of 20 seconds, the Turkish General Staff said on Nov. 24.

Four F-16 jets were performing an air patrolling duty on the Turkish-Syrian border when SA-2 missile systems deployed in Syria have harassed one of the F-16 planes by putting it under radar lock for 20 seconds at around 10:07 a.m. The incident occurred while the plane was in Turkish airspace over the province of Hatay, read the statement published on the General Staffs website.

During a previous incident that had occurred on Nov. 16, Syrian forces had put three different F-16 jets flying over the Hatay province, which borders Syria, under radar lock.

A radar lock is considered a hostile act as it amounts to interfere with a planes' navigational systems
indicating that the missile is ready to be fired at it.

A Turkish F-4 jet that was flying over the Mediterranean Sea was downed by Syria on June 22, 2012, causing an international uproar.

More recently, Turkey shot down a Syrian helicopter on Sept. 16 after arguing that it had violated Turkish airspace by two kilometers.

forgive my ignorance but ive been just wondering ;

lets say they fired those missiles against our jets. and we know we have nato patriot batteries over there so i wonder if those pac2 missiles can hit those SA2 missiles before they reach our jet? can you hit a sam with a sam?

-----------------------------

No! Theoretically the PAC3 missile should be able but they are stationed too far from the border (Incirlik to the nearest border is 120km). Range of PAC3 is 40km, so there is no chance to use these missiles against Syrian airdefence missiles. Secondly the reaction time is short so the PAC3 should be set on auto and be coincidentally at the right spot when the Syrian missile would be launched

First time I read such a pile of crap in here, I am so disappointed I rarely post or even read this forum anymore. No, you cannot hit a SAM system missile with another SAM system because their TVM guidance id not set for SAM trajectory. Usually you neutralize stationary SA-2 systems either with DEAD/SEAD operation, most likely the F-16/HARM combination or in your case you may also use HAROP UAV system.

Most Syrian SAM sites are intact, the terrorists managed to capture only non operational SAM-5's and few SA-2's which were left behind. The later have been upgraded with Chinese help.

I think our patrol planes should carry AGM-88 HARM missiles if in case Syrians attempts a such stunt.

Syria has 120 surface-to-air missile (SAM) sites armed with a mix of Russian and old Soviet systems: SA-2, SA-3, SA-5, and SA-6. It has 50 EW facilities with a mix of Chinese and Russian systems, said Sean OConnor, editor of IMINT & Analysis, a US-based newsletter.

I would also add state of the art Pantsir-S and SA-17

Big mouth Uktion essek. The Syrians locked your jet for judt 20 seconds and already started to bark like a crazy dog, HAF locked you for 4 minutes. Reaction my arse

ANKARA Anadolu Agency November/06/2013


"Greek F-16 jets harassed Turkish military trainer aircrafts by putting them under radar-lock while they were flying over the Aegean Sea, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement on their website Nov. 6.

The Turkish Air Forces F-4E/2020 planes performed training flights in Aegean international airspace between the Icraia and Samos islands. The Greek F-16 planes that took off from the airbase on Skyros island harassed [the Turkish planes] by maintaining the radar locks for four minutes [for each plane], the statement said.

Radar lock means that the Greek military planes missiles were fixed on the Turkish aircraft during their flight over the Aegean."
