U.S. Likely To Deploy Avenger Air Defense Systems In Syria And Iraq To Combat Drones

The mobile short-range AN/TWQ-1 Avenger air defense missile system is probably the best readily available system for protecting U.S. troops in Syria and Iraq from the growing threat posed to them by enemy drones. 


In late February, photos purportedly showing Avengers being transported on a highway from Iraq to Syria emerged on social media. They were likely being brought to U.S. troops in Syria’s eastern Deir ez-Zor region. 


With its FIM-92 Stinger missile launchers, the Avenger is designed for protecting infantry against low-flying aircraft, cruise missiles, helicopters, and drones.
