Analysis of the Syrian army air force and air defence threats in case of no-fly zone.

Syria has one of the most sophisticated Soviet-designed air defence systems outside of the former Eastern Bloc countries. In August 2006, Russian sources confirmed that the first battery of Strelets SA-24 multiple launch units had been delivered to Syria, although the Russian Ministry of Defence subsequently denied the transaction, claiming the contract had not yet been signed.

Syria for the few past years has reached out to Russia to obtain modern weapons that included many modern anti-tank and anti-air missile systems that will further improve its combat capabilities. In early September, 2008 The Syrian Government is in line with Russia to purchase MiG-29SMT fighters, Pantsir S1E air-defense systems, Iskander tactical missile systems, and Yak-130 aircraft.

During the latest military exercises in December 2011, a video unveils that Syrian army is now equipped with latest Russian made air defence missile system as the BUK-M2 (Nato code SA-17 Grizzly).

The Syrian strategic SAM (ground-to-air missile) is based primarily on Russian made systems. The Syrian Air Defense Force controls twenty-five air defense brigades, each with six SAM batteries. It is equipped with 650 static SA-2, SA-3 and SA-5 launchers, 200 mobile SA-6 and SA-11 launchers and over 4,000 anti-aircraft guns ranging from 23mm to 100mm in caliber. There are also two independent SA-8 and SA-10 SAM Regiments, each with four batteries of 48 mobile SAMs.

The Syrian early warning system comprises Long Track; P-12 Spoon Rest; P-14 Tall King; H-15 Flat Face; P-30 Big Mesh; P-35 Bar Lock; P-80; PRV-13; PRV-16 Thin Skin mobile and static radar sites throughout Syria

Syrian army is now equipped with the latest generation of Russian made mobile air defence missile system as the SA-22 and the Pechora 2M.

Currently, there are 131 active SAM sites inside of Syria.
