Knows the above is more or less bunkum. New weaponry can be adopted quite swiftly by any armed force. Russia has had a military relationship with Syria for a long time so there would be training undertaken in Russia by Syrians during that time frame just like Kiwi's train Fijians, Brits train Nepalese et al. What takes a little time is for crews to get proficient at using the weaponry and this can be done in simulators in Russia. We don't know how long Syrian troops have been training with this weaponry. What we do know is Syrians made short work of the Turkish jet that ventured into Syrian airspace recently.
