hibiny: Terror of the Destroyers
The Su-35S, which are being sent to Syria, are also equipped with a state-of-the-art radio electronic warfare system.
This relatively small container in the shape of a torpedo is mounted on the wingtips of the aircraft and makes the jets invulnerable to all modern means of defense and enemy fighters. After the crew receives a missile attack alert, Khibiny comes into action and covers the fighter with a radio-electronic protective hood, which prevents the missile from reaching the target and makes it deviate from the course.
