That’s what Iraq and Syria have said in the past. It must be a Russian selling point in the brochure.

It can easily be disabled and made to glow in the dark at the same time.

Knock out all of their electronics and we’ll see how impenetrable it is. I luring backup generators. Never say never. Every hacker has been told they couldn’t penetrate a certain network at one time or another too.

The USA has a cultural bias built in. We as a nation cannot imagine that “those illiterate savages” could build something technologically superior.

So Iran has a working missile defense- maybe the same as or better than ours. We sneer and say no way could those illiterate...

Remember Sputnik, Laika, Gagarin. Be prepared for a technological surprise.

Being “technologically superior” and wealthy can blind us to opportunities. Being poor and behind technologically forces one to seek new, different opportunities.

Sort of a long read but this discusses technological surprise on several levels.

My interpretation of this is that some Mossad agent hacked it and now it plays “Radar Love’ nonstop.

The Persians aren't stupid. The regime that rules them is. Do you think that snap together model jet they rolled out last year (complete with decals and cassette player!) was an elaborate ruse to fool the decadent westerners?

....river's of blood, oceans of mother's tears, yadda yadda

When their dusty, useless, craphole of a country is turned into a smoking, dusty, useless, craphole see what tune they're playing then.

Maybe the technology was “donated” via drone?

The weak link in this impenetrable system is that it is manned by Iranians just like the Syrian system was manned by Syrians and the Iraqi system was manned by Iraqis.

The Iranian defense minister must be a French guy named Maginot. /sarc
