The units of the 1 Infantry Division of the US Armed Forces, also known as the “Big Red One”, arrived in Iraq to take part in the storming of Mosul, according to News.


Mass media: units of the "red" division of the US Armed Forces were transferred to Iraq


The division is in service Tanks and self-propelled guns.

“Officially, only around 500 military personnel of the division are in the combat zone, however, footage from the battlefields suggests that side by side with paratroopers from the 101 airborne assault division are tankers and gunners from the Big Red,” the newspaper writes .

At the headquarters of Operation Enduring Will, the newspaper was informed that “about 500 servicemen from the headquarters of the division arrived in Iraq”, who would take over the leadership of the ground forces storming the city.

"We will provide assistance in training Iraqi commanders, staff officers, rank and file officers and police officers planning and carrying out operations against ISIL (banned in the Russian Federation) in the valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers whose main purpose is Mosul," said the commander of 1- Infantry Division Joseph Martin.

However, the video materials posted on the network indicate that not only “staff officers”, but also artillerymen, armed with ACS M109 Paladin, and already shelling the positions of terrorists, arrived at Mosul. In the same area, the Abrams were seen with the tactical designation of the 1 division.

Thus, “armored brass knuckles were added to the fist of the paratroopers who assembled the Pentagon near Mosul,” the newspaper notes.

    And they will get there in the "margarine". I do not defend the barmaley, they must be finished off, but the US methods are not playing in the sandbox and they will not stand on ceremony as ours.

            Normal setup for trump. While the troops are deploying there, while reconnaissance, etc., methods of procrastinating time, the Iraqis will create some tactical success closer on January 20. Then the Americans will throw their own into battle. And Trump will not be able to give an order to challenge. Moreover, the loss of about 100 people will already be against Trump: well, the bastard did not stop you, than doomed our sons to death. And he will decide to stop: well, you bastard, you took away the victory from our heroes.
            A good reason for impeachment in any situation.

        and they will not be as ceremonial as ours.

        Ours do not stand on ceremony. You can’t cut everyone indiscriminately. You will not notice how you turn from a defender into an aggressor.
        The US has become aggressors. Many people are fighting against the United States, who are waging their war against an aggressor that has invaded their territory and destroyed their homes and killed their families. The US was able to separate the moderate from the immoderate, the terrorists from the rebels, and they will not be able to. For the vast majority of the US, the aggressor.
        We don't need such a policy. Our task is to help the Syrian government establish order and law. Not to break the existing way of life on the knee, but to strengthen it. So, we need to "stand on ceremony". We only need to get rid of the barmaley and protect the civilians.

            Eugene, then the question is for you as a military man. What is the chance for the Yankees to take Mosul without carpet bombing and erasing everything and everything into dust? Or did they learn to take cities?

              Indeed, fighting in the village usually leads to more casualties than under normal conditions, understanding this of course stops the Americans and they pin their hopes on the Iraqi army, which is not particularly alert and disciplined, and even armed with bad luck! According to various estimates, in Mosul now there are about 5-7 thousand Igilovites, maybe all 10, and that means that to storm the city you need to create a group of at least 30-40 thousand people! This military axiom about 4-fold superiority of attackers over the enemy is tested by historical experience! The Americans do not have such a grouping near Mosul, which means that no assault is foreseen - the militants are being squeezed out into Syria by small detachments, but the second axiom of fighting in the city is to take control of everything that is released and create strong points there, set up checkpoints, etc. n., gradually moving further ... All this is not visible! This means that the Americans will eat up that the militants will leave, so to speak, out of fear ... However, it is possible to transfer the red division and is a sign of building up forces for the assault!hi

          The Iraqi army occupied the eastern and southern quarters and stalled.
          The city center was not reached.
          But Shiite militias captured vast areas around Mosul with dozens of villages.
          Shoot ISIS brutally.

          1st Infantry - the most sensible division in the United States. They beautifully took Baghdad in 2003. Carefully,
          as in textbooks.

            The problem is that the Iraqis Sunnis do not want to fight, Shiites and Iranians are the main shock fist. But just as the assault of Mosul is taking place, it’s a failure, with such superiority in numbers and technicality, that’s not to mention the number of allies is a fiasco. By the new year, Mosul will not be taken, maybe before they take office, President Trump will have time. In the meantime, let's see how

              Saddam's guard divisions resisted quite worthily.
              No "bought generals" gave them the order to surrender.
              Another thing, the Americans deceived the Iraqis tactically. Pretended to be
              will surround and besiege the city for a long time. But suddenly made a tank breakthrough
              large forces directly to the center. And captured the government block
              with all the bosses.

                Tank breakthrough right to the center laughing Do not make me laugh. I was in Baghdad in 2001. It is a huge city with a population of over 5 million, much larger than Grozny. With a competent defense, which was in Grozny and now in Aleppo, the Americans would have left mountains of corpses and burnt equipment there. I agree with a colleague who wrote about the "golden donkey" belay , all the merit is in him, and not in the vaunted prowess and ability of American warriors.

                  Chechens. Have you taken Palmyra? - Bought the heads of ISIS.

                  And in Baghdad, the central regions were not prepared for defense.
                  Only the perimeter was strengthened. There were tanks of Nat. guard.
                  In the beginning, it was thought that "the largest army in the Middle East" would stop
                  Americans still on the coast. Then - there was no time to strengthen the city.
                  The breakthrough to Baghdad was quick.

        10.01. Zyablitsov! And if you look at this matter from a different angle? America is a country of PR and shows. Before Obama's departure, they need to conduct a show about the victorious role of the United States. And who were they going to win? Those whom they feed with all hands. There will soon be a match. Those who need it will be notified in advance and depart. There will be meat for slaughter. After which the Americans will triumphantly come in and declare their victory. And at the same time they will consolidate the American zone of occupation. And it will be like in Afghanistan and Iraq. Amerans control the territory and blood flows. But it turns out that we are allies fighting together against terrorism. History repeats itself. They fight with us, surrender to the Americans. And so we are considered allies and partners. But the plan is wonderful. And already gave wonderful results. Why not work on a proven training manual? hi

          No need to simplify. IS created by the United States is not by direct instruction. But conditions were created for its occurrence and, somewhere, they threw money, etc.
          IG is a mad dog. If the United States had the opportunity to hold a contractual match, it would have held it before the elections. "Didn't sniff".
          Leadership on complementary foods, of course dump. But the middle link is the former Iraqi military experts. And they have a bloody hatred of the United States.
          So it will be quite a serious assault on Mosul.

    Now it is clear that "something went wrong" (as they say in their films) and the Americans are not quite in control of the situation. Tanks are certainly good, but the other day they showed footage from Mosul. The bandits burn tanks (including Abrams), infantry fighting vehicles, armored vehicles like matchboxes, and mostly from RPG-7. American losses will increase.

      Most likely they are burning outdated export options in the arsenal of Iraqis. The Americans have worked out the scheme of warfare with the Mujahideen ideally, where losses are always miserable.

        Yes, the Abrams harness of the Iraqi army. As for the ideally worked out scheme - air and artillery support, and first mix everything with the ground. And how the American "Abrams" burned could be seen during the American invasion of Iraq.

Random bombing of opponents of barmaley, and random dumping of goods to the wrong place. Warnings about Russian BCC bombing.

        That's why I write that they do not control. They expected to negotiate with the bandits, whom they armed, financed, quickly and with minimal losses to take Mosul. What we see today. The offensive has stalled, losses are increasing. Forced to draw their additional forces into the ground operation.

    And I have a question about ammunition.
    Where did the barmaley get so much ammunition ???
    Whatever stocks Saddam did, over the decades of the war, warehouses should have shown the bottom. However, fierce resistance does not stop. If there are 5-6 thousand of them there, then they must spend at least 20 tons of ammunition per day of active fighting, which is 7 tons per year. Where did such stocks come from, like there were no munitions factories in Iraq, and I doubt that they were built there over the years of ISIS.
    In theory, if they run out of ammunition, the war should fade away by itself, you won’t get a lot of cold steel

      and oil to "brothers" in mind? trade went on, and maybe it is still going on. the same Saudis and other sympathizers. They raised a lot of money for this project. plus the barmaley crushed territories not only with sand, but with infrastructure, banks and people. at the same time, they do not need to build schools from the hospital, and they will not pay pensions either. Therefore, everything is for weapons and for the salaries of the militants. The Bulgarian cartridge factories probably work in three shifts))

    Ice cream, cold beer, all these ridicule is out of place. The mosul was very much raged and there was no exhaust from Iraqi pseudo-parts and other popular squads. The most experienced units were thrown out and eventually they would take the city. In Syria, too, there were only advisers from the Russian Armed Forces in the Syrian army but the picture is different, an example of the capture of Palmyra is eloquent. God bless all soldiers to return home to their families. It is regrettable to admit this, but politicians begin wars and politicians end.

    1st Infantry - the most sensible division in the United States. They beautifully took Baghdad in 2003. Carefully,
    as in textbooks. [/ quote]
    Jewish fairy tales do not tell the Warrior. After all, it’s not the children who read the news. Other than yourself and the Professor, keep all fools. They bought the commanders of the Republican Guard Saddam, who was responsible for the defense of Baghdad. They reminded of the commanders of the five divisions. The commander of the Republican Guard of Iraq, General Maher Suf concluded a secret deal with the U.S. Army, which provided for the surrender of the compound entrusted to him in exchange for preserving his life and ensuring personal safety, the Lebanese satellite television channel LBC reported.
    According to the channel, on the eve of the entry of the Western Allies into the capital of Iraq, Maher Sufyan ordered the Republican Guard to lay down their arms and go home.
    Thereafter, an Apache helicopter of the United States Air Force picked him up from the Al-Rashid military base near Baghdad and took him to "safety." Before the military operation in Iraq, the Americans bribed Iraqi generals so that they would not resist, MSNBC.com reports with reference to Defense News.

    The military commander, General Tommy Franks, confirmed that special units were involved in negotiations with Iraqi army leaders. “I received letters from Iraqi generals saying, 'Now I work for you,'” Franks told Defense News.
    , Mentioned the commanders of 5 divisions.

      They may have bought some generals, but local commanders did not capitulate.

        There was no resistance in Baghdad, there were battles in Najaf and in the south. A little later, the army and the Baath took out weapons and explosives from the previously prepared warehouses and caches and "the earth began to burn" under the feet of the "liberators"
