S-300 is just a S.A.M., they aren't impossible to get around, you just have to fly under the radar, so we'll just send them gunships that can do that and knock out S.A.M. sites at will. Ofcourse having a highpowered laser flying in orbit that can hit any target from space, might come in handy if it ever gets finished.
Aha... And these gunships you speak of... they don't by any chance have wings and fly... huh...
Wait! They do fly! Then the S-300 system is right at home.
Also I forgot. The S-300 system is also an anti-satellite system. Satellites are covered.

Russia has not yet delivered S-300 missiles to Syria: Putin AFP - Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday Moscow had not yet delivered its sophisticated S-300 missiles to the Damascus regime despite hints from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that such shipments had already been made. "The contract was signed several years ago. It has not been realised yet," Putin said at a joint press conference with EU leaders. "We do not want to upset the balance in the region."
“As for the S-300s, it’s one of the best air defense systems in the world,” Putin said following a Russia-EU summit. “It’s a serious weapon. We would not like to tip the balance of power in the region. We signed the contract a few years ago. It has not been implemented yet.”
