    They still lack radar targeting system Monolit-B and helicopter mounted target finding system 1K130E with doppler radar I-801 Oko (Eye), so Syrian Bastion system with Jahont missiles is still not completed.

    Syria owns in-debt to russia, They ordered a huge shopping list from aircraft to tactical missiles.

    Excatly, Syria currently does not have capable platform to guide the missiles.

    Although Syrians doesnt any Platform to launch but Yahont can also be launched from Land Mobile Platforms, by the help of Ka-27s helicopters.
