As was previously reported:
"Thanks to Freeper, The Times of Israel and the wiki we have this item my initial response to which has been proven to be nearly 100 % wrong."
From the Strategy Page Internet web site and as copied more or less in entirety another example of where Bert has been shown to be wrong.
"Air Defense: SA-3 Makes A Comeback"
"July 17, 2015: For over a decade now Belarus has been trying to develop legitimate defense companies and they have had some success. One such company, TETRAEDR, specializes in upgrading Cold War era Russian air defense systems. There is a market for such services because many countries still rely on these older missile systems and upgrades of existing equipment is a lot cheaper than buying new stuff. One recent satisfied customer is Vietnam, which is having its S-125 (SA-3 Goa) anti-aircraft missile systems upgraded to the S-125-2TM standard. This upgrade makes the missiles more capable in that they are better able to handle jamming and more effective against low-flying targets (especially cruise missiles). The 2TM upgrades enables S-125 batteries to operate independent of a centralized air defense system and be ready for action (or ready to move) more quickly. The upgrades, Vietnam was assured, makes the S-125 more effective against Chinese air attack."
Many nations from the period of the Cold War having firing batteries of old and previously having been thought of as antiquated surface-to-air missiles such as the SA-3 Goa now receiving upgrades. Including Vietnam!!
VIETNAM TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE CHINESE THREAT THOSE MISSILES THE PRIMARY TARGET NO LONGER THE INCOMING AMERICAN INTRUDER AIR PIRATE BANDIT WARPLANE!!
