TBILISI, Georgia - Georgia accused arch-rival Russia on Aug. 25 of deploying sophisticated S-300 missile defense systems in a second breakaway Georgian region, South Ossetia, as well as Abkhazia.
Moscow, which earlier this month announced it had placed S-300s in Georgia's rebel Abkhazia region, denied that the surface-to-air missiles had also been deployed in South Ossetia. ...
I believe if S-300 had been set up around Georgia, it could deny the country flying space, and Russia was able to shoot down any aircrafts of any types at practically anytime at will, without the need of deploying fighters.Correct me if I'm wrong, but does Georgia have a reason to fear the S-300? It's not an offensive weapons system. It's a defensive system.
