Also today an Israeli Air Force Gulfstream G.550 Nachshon Eitam (569) is making a training mission over northern Greece to test how the Greek S-300's lock-on system works, gathering data on its tracking radar and how it might be blinded or bluffed.697400473698305

 

 

Kind of too far unless the system was deployed to the mainland, distance from the PMU site is 530 Km and the max range of the radar is claimed to be 300 Km, so putting 200+ Km as a buffer is a lot. Extrapolating that will put the Gulfstream beyond Cyprus which may be good because it would be far from Russian interference.

 

Is it possible the key here is not the distance by itself, but mountain range between plane and SAM site?

Are we sure that the Greeks don't have an undeployed reference or training system?

There is no need for this system to belong to Greeks - for example Ukraine (or, to be more correct, corrupt officials from Ukraine) would easily sell or lease one of their aging S300 to everybody, especially if Israel is asking for this favor. So we can't rule out Greece is only providing test range and personnel.

There has been an S300 (or a close replica there of) sitting in the Nellis electronic range for at least the past 10 years.

The system is mobile, so they can redeploy to the mainland, or maybe the Gulfstream was something completely different.

Yes. Yes. The SDF region is very poorly controlled and there are plenty of locals willing to be paid to sell them food and fuel. Ammo etc. is largely being drawn from caches. Reinforcements trickle in as civillians. Anbar remains porous. DAESH continues to enjoy financial support from many sources, including the Gulf.
