    How take off and how to eject they have a real problem understanding the concept of landing your plane in 1 piece rather than ejecting and leaving the plane to crash. The MIG 29 Syria is getting has inferior electronics systems to Israels and their Russian missiles are inferior to Israels so I doubt they will be shooting down any Israeli aircraft, Israel has also leased Indian MIG 29s and the IAF use them for training so they learn the strenghs and weaknesses of the plane in combat. Israel now equips its tanks with the Trophy system which destroys ant tank weapons before they hit the tank & IAF has shown in the past its capable of getting round Russian anti aircraft systems. I hope Assad likes looking at his new toys because thats probably the only way they will make him happy because in combat they will probably let him down. Israel of course like all countries want their enemies to be as weak as possible and so will try and get the deal called off through diplomatic means. if diplomacy fails its not a problem, this is not a game changer and won't make Syria anymore capable of dealing with Israel than it is already because the IDF is more than capable of dealing with any of these weapons
