They would be worthless to terrorists. The SA-2 requires a large fixed area to set up in. The MiG-21 requires fixed runways. Both things that
terrorists try to avoid like the plague.
The GPS Jammer would then be used as a threat by North Korea on American passenger planes coming and going in the area to keep out or the
system might be turned on thus causing any number of air fatalities.
Or possibly the GPS Jamming System would be used by North Korean, Cuban or terrorist factions to purposely jam the GPS of planes to cause them to
Either way I think China is making North Korea engage in such an operation to first secure the Panama Canal for China along with possibly sending in
North Korean GPS Jamming components piece by piece through the drug train and illegal immigrant trains coming into America so a possible terror attack
where planes crash because of loss of GPS at a crucial moment in the operation of the plane.
So how exactly does that work? You jam the GPS and the plane suddenly says "Oh, damn, I don't know where I am, I better crash now"? GPS is only
one of many systems that a plane uses, and the only one that can be jammed. There is also an INS unit, as well as a magnetic compass, and directional
receivers to track fixed radio beacons.
America and set up their GPS Jamming stations to cause to go off course and crash as well as causing our military planes to be misdirected if a
Red Dawn scenario were to occur...which because of North Korea's latest weapons moving from Cuba to North Korea means that something else is going
Military aircraft also have things like radar that can track other planes to guide them, as well as INS, and other systems. They also use encrypted
GPS which is harder to jam. But besides that, who is going to be doing this invasion? North Korea, with their something like 13 MiG-29s (their most
modern aircraft)? China? Neither country has the airlift capability to even get near the US mainland.
You don't move obsolete weapons from one country to another like North Korea and Cuba were caught doing. You simply break them down sell the
steel for scrap and junk everything else.
Something else is going on in Cuba.
When you are one of 7-8 countries left in the world operating that equipment, yes, you really do. Especially if you are under sanctions, and the
other country has the ability to repair your equipment.
