After the shot down of russian Su-24 which violated Turkish border, the deployment of S-400 in Syria with the missile cruiser Moscow near the coastal Syria-Turkey border and also the threats from russian terrorists to escort bombing aircraft accompanied with fighter jet and after the statement from lieutenant general Sergey Rudskoy “that every target posing a potential threat will be destroyed“, Turkish Armed forces shifted in state of war all of his naval air and ground units which are now in maximal alert.
The number of fighter jets patrolling 24/24h at the Syrian border was increased to 18 F-16 Block50+ heavily armed and full CCIP modernized. The F-16 are armed with 4 AIM-120 AMRAAM and 2 AIM-9X Sidewinder state of the art air-to-air missiles for each fighter. Also KC-135 Stratotankers ensure permanent supplies of fuel in the air.
Turkish Army mobilized at the moment 20 M60T tanks (highly modernized by TAI) to the Hatay province near Syrian border. Also an unknown number of T-155 Firtina heavy howitzers with an range of 48km covering the position of the russian air-base at Latakia have been placed in red alert at the syrian border.
According to military sources, if there is any enemy fire from Syria, the armed forces received the authorization to retaliate with the maximum fire power to destroy the russian or assad base in Syria.
Also missile system T-300 Kasirga MBRL defined target toward Syria and are ready to destroy any enemies positions.
Military sources reports the activation of the next-generation high precision cruise stealth missile SOM made by Roketsan, having an range of 840km (for now), especially designed for destroying high value target like air-defense system (S-300/400), flying to more than 1200 km/h in sea-skimming or ground-skimming mode with very low RCS value, this stealth missile can destroy very difficult target with hight precision, making it extremely difficult to intercept or detect. SOM missile has, among other things, tough electronic warfare (EW) countermeasures.
Also, units of the powerful Electronic Warfare system Aselsan KORAL has been placed in red alert at the Syrian border. This EW system has an estimated range, from classified sources, of 900km. It can target, destroy or jam electronic hardware radar of fighter jet and land-based radar (like S-400), making, de facto, a no-fly zone in the area covered by the range for any enemies aircrafts. Some characteristics are still classified.
Range of 900km (Aselsan KORAL)
Military sources have not yet made a statement if few stealth littoral combat warships like TCG Büyükada (F-512) will welcome the Russian cruiser Moskva near Syrian coast.
Unfortunately, I have no information regarding the completion of the Aselsan stand-off jammer (SOJ) Electronic Warfare system which could be very useful for disabling S-400/300 without destroying them. Israel use EW jammer for disabling S-300 in Syria without destroying them.
The Moscow’s gangsters want to play war ? Hell yes, we will play war.
