July 1982
National Review;7/23/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 14, p874
The article discusses the significance of the destruction of 19 Syrian SA-6 surface-to-air missile (SAM) batteries by the Israeli military forces in Lebanon. The event is significant for the Soviet Union, whose heavily armored units have to rely on relentless momentum to gain victory in a land war with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The Israelis destroyed these SA-6 SAM batteries in a very short time. The weapons and tactics used by them are applicable to any radar-guided SAM. So, the Soviet Union and the U.S. has to revise their military strategy that will cost millions of dollars.
