Russians forcing RAF to abort missions in Syria by ‘hacking into’ their systems

“It is entirely feasible that Russia has targeted Tornadoes and Typhoons in this way,” said air defence expert Justin Bronk, of the Royal United Services Institute think-tank. “The Russians are well aware that they simply cannot match Western precision-guided munition technology, and they cannot match us one-to-one. But Russia also knows that Britain’s ability to deliver guided munitions depends on access to GPS in the target area and good communications, so they have developed equipment to jam and interrupt both. They are very, very good at this.”
