The Iranians said they thought it was a cruise missile. That is increasingly implausible. Wrong altitude, wrong size, wrong shape, two missiles to take down a cruise missile????Weren't earlier reports amply clear as to the reason why the Ukrainian plane crashed, Paddy? Those reports clearly mentioned SAMs were fired. Later, the Iranian government admitted to the same. What's with your BS speculations as to Cruise missiles being fired?
Surely they have more than one radar and some kind of communication/integration, if not with each other then with air traffic control. Usually people say US jamming is poor relative to adversaries and now they're saying that they jammed the entire Iranian IADS and C4ISR network so badly that it forced them to shoot down a plane full of their own people. If this is the case, then in an air war they would be able to jam the Iranians into shooting down their own air force.
