    Russia’s Electronic Warfare Advances Offers Stealth Capability for Fighter Aircraft

    https://jamestown.org/program/russia...hter-aircraft/

    The latest Khibiniy EW complex will effectively “blind” enemy radars and satellites to the presence of a VKS air grouping, potentially crippling the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) air defenses in any kinetic contact between Russia and the Alliance. Normally, these Khibiniy complexes are mounted on the wingtips of advanced Sukhoi platforms: Su-35S fighters, Su-34 bombers and Su-30SM fighters. On one wing-tip, the Khibiniy system acts as a receiver to determine enemy radio and communications frequencies, while the second generates the jamming element. The system is automated and analyzes enemy signals before determining the best means of jamming. The latest Khibiniy variant, the Khibiniy-U, is mounted under the fuselage of the Su-30SM to provide broad coverage for an air grouping and boost the EW capability against high-technology adversaries. In the upgraded Khibiniy-U, the entire capability is magnified to provide cover for an air grouping against enemy radars and space-based assets. According to the Russian daily Izvestia, with the introduction of the Khibiniy-U as part of a VKS air grouping, NATO air defenses are rendered exposed and ineffective; the newest Khibiniy EW complex offers a near-stealth capability for Russian VKS operations in any theater (Izvestia, June 9).

    The RFAF does not operate in eastern Ukraine. If they tested this system in Syria, the US probably harvested SIGINT/ELINT data.

    No its not but the article is at least in part discussing the claims made by Russian propaganda.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."
