This video shows you that Russia’s S-400 Air Defense System: Super Weapon or Over Hyped?.

Aside from all sorts of political considerations, Chinese and Indian strategic planners will have to assess carefully the strict military dimension of the missile strike that the United States launched against a government-controlled airbase in Syria early on Friday.

China and India are both clients of Russia’s arms industry, and have bought a number of S-400 long-range air defense missile systems. The Kremlin is a historical ally of Damascus and deployed batteries of this advanced missile platform at the Khmeimim airbase near Latakia in western Syria after its intervention in support of President Bashar al-Assad.

On paper, the S-400 system is designed to destroy aircraft, drones, and cruise and ballistic missiles up to 400 kilometers away; it is also equipped with a radar able to detect targets at a range of 600km. Since its installation in Syrian territory, the action of Western and Turkish warplanes in support of rebel forces has been limited.

The presence of S-400 platforms in the Syrian theater possibly influenced the US strategy of attack against the Assad regime. The USS Porter and USS Ross, two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers stationed in the eastern Mediterranean, bombarded the Shayrat airbase in central Syria, which the Syrian Air Force used to launch suspected chemical attacks that left dozens of civilians dead in rebel-held Khan Shaykhun.

Though the Pentagon informed the Russian military beforehand of the impending operation, the US military command decided to attack from a safe distance. Tomahawk missiles have a range of 1,600km and their use in place of strike aircraft was probably intended to minimize potential losses caused by the very fast and precise S-400 surface-to-air missiles.

This could mean that the Pentagon acknowledges the effectiveness of the S-400 against warplanes and the electronic jamming capabilities of the US EA-18G Growler jets, which can weaken the operability of the Russian air shield in Syria but not neutralize it completely.

Thus the S-400’s deterrent function against aircraft sorties appears to be confirmed by the military option chosen by the United States to punish Assad. Chinese and Indian generals will be delighted with this outcome, which proves they have been right to bet on the S-400 system for their respective air defenses.

In particular, Delhi can reasonably be confident it will manage to undercut Beijing’s airborne capacities so as to gain aerial strategic parity in the Himalayan region, where the two countries have long-standing border disputes.

    Well both conclusions are not good for Russia..

    If the S-400 battery in Syria could intercept and destroy the Tomahawk Cruse missiles but the Russians refuse to defend Syria the that calls into doubt the value to Syria of their Supposed Ally Russia… If your ally stood back and allowed your airbase to be destroyed by multiple cruise missile attack i think you would be very angry at your fake ally…

    If the S-400 battery in Syria did not have the ability to defend Syria from an attack by Tomahawk Cruse Missiles then that really shows up the S-400 system to be a very poor system.. The Tomahawk Cruse missile is an old design and relatively slow moving cruise missile.. India's Brahmos cruse missile system is way faster then tomahawk..

    So either of the above possibilities is a terrible outcome for the Russians no matter what one is true.. I guess India would hope that the first option is true.. That behind the scenes Putin and Trump made some secret deal for Russian to look the other way so that Trump could destroy that Syrian airbase.. India better hope for this option.. If it is not the right one then India might consider buying THAAD Or the updated Patriot Systems?
