Found this article and thought it gave an interesting summary of Russia's EW capabiltities.

The article admits that the reported disabling of the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea was a newspaper hoax. Since the plane that buzzed the Donald Cook was not a model that carries the Khibiny jammer

However, their EW systems are claimed to increase survivability of their aircraft by around 30 times.

They also claim to have a jammer that prematurely detonates incoming proximity fused artillary.

And a system to blind AWACS and shipborne radars as well as the ability to spoof incoming missiles.


Also, our recent Tomahawk missile attack on Syria is widely reported to have only had 26 missiles hit the airport out of the 59 missiles launched.
The 39 missiles that didn't hit the target were either taken off course by jamming signals or intercepted by the S-300 SAMs.

I was an EW Technician in the Navy back in the 90s. We've had equipment that can do that for decades. But the equipment is only part of the equation. A larger part is training. Our EWs(Now CTTs) train constantly while at sea. But more important still is intel. If you have accurate data on the parametrics of enemy radars and other emitters, then you can determine platforms and the threats those platforms carry from great distances. Theoretically, a radar on a potential threat can be detected at twice the effective range of that radar. Fast and accurate identification becomes a major advantage.

Now I know how good our intel was in the 90s. I have a pretty good idea of how much/little that intel's accuracy has changed. What I don't know is how Russian intel has fared in the same time period. That's what we should be more interest in. Equipment is only as good as the operator and the intel that operator relies on.

Thanks for the link. Reading it now. Sorta scary.

Russia is not the tribes of Afghanistan nor the man dress wearing Iraqi insurgents, that's for sure.

To me, it was sort of good news bad news.

I am real glad they were not able to cripple one of our Aegius destroyers by a simple fly-by.

But if they can defeat 2/3 of incoming cruise missiles, that's not so good. it would be good to know how many were missile intercepts and how many were jammed or spoofed.

I guess missiles are going to need to be stealth at some point.
