Two of the bases at the most advanced US radar and Patriot Missile batteries, which had been put online 2 weeks before.  This was a test of US capability, a test that US forces failed.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – The Russian Su-57 stealth jets flew ‘unnoticed’ over several U.S. bases in Iraq and Syria, the Russian publication Avia.Pro reported on Sunday.

“The Russian Su-57 fighter managed to pass unnoticed over American military airbases in northern Iraq. The incident occurred during the last appearance of a fifth-generation Russian fighter in Syria – according to a source, the Russian combat aircraft followed its own course, and was not transported aboard the An-124,” the publication said.

According to Avia.Pro’s sources, since Turkey does not allow Russian combat jets over their territory, the Su-57 could only get to Iraqi airspace from Syria by flying over U.S. military installations.

“Given the likely route of the Russian Su-57 fighter, a combat aircraft flew through the corridor with at least three U.S. military bases in Iraq and three military bases in Syria,” they continued.

Citing a military specialist, the publication claimed: “Until recently, the Russian Su-57 was ridiculed in the United States, claiming that it could not claim the title of stealth, however, given the fact that the Russian fighter unimpededly covered several thousand kilometers directly over the U.S. military bases in Iraq and Syria, it’s quite obvious that we are really talking about an “invisible plane” that successfully clicked Washington’s nose.”

  1. It’s more of a slap in the face, actually. A very subtle slap, but still a slap. The Crimea thing, and Kerch Bridge is a hard slap to The City of London’s face, I think. A permanent reminder of that slap. There are a few others.

    • iI think the real bombshell that the US got, if you’ll forgive my pun, was the absolute precision of Iranian missiles in the attack on Al-Assad base in January. They were so dumbfounded that they quickly realised that discretion was the better part of valour.

    • Caro Edward devo rammentarti che non è brutto ciò che è brutto , ma è brutto ciò che non piace , poi come fai a dire che è brutto se è invisibile ?
