most of the munitions were directed at SSRC Branch 450 facilities (chem warfare org that went covert after the initial declared disposal of CW).

Got to love Russian propaganda can't even get the targets right or why the targets were totally wiped out!

The full statement of the Russian MOD speaks about other targets than the ones claimed by the US and its Allies. http://eng.mil.ru/en/news_page/country/ ... 611@egNews

While I am very doubtful about the Russian positions in general, the outcome at the US declared targets doesn't add up with around 100 Tomahawk hits. If they did further target SAA airfields defended by Pantsir, which is designed to deal with specifically these situations, I wouldn't be surprised if the 100% accuracy is correct. Regarding the older systems I have serious doubts though.
