Syrian blogger Vail Al Husseini posted photos taken at Shairat airbase, previously subjected to a massive US missile attack, to the Internet.

The pictures captured the preparation for a Syrian combat mission fighter-bomber Su-22. As you can see, the car is equipped with OFAB-250-270 high-explosive fragmentation bombs produced in Russia.

    I remember back in the evening of April 7th, there were videos of Syrian Air Force taking off planes from Shairat.

      The USA, once again demonstrated that they are not going to reckon with either international law or the rights of any countries. The aggressor understands only the language of even greater aggression. When will Russian politicians understand this ?! It is impossible to speak diplomatically with people for whom the concept of “human rights” has turned into a club, which clears the way from some in favor of others. All the politics of America, the last 100 years, is aimed at achieving world hegemony. What, however, they do not hide at all

        What do you think will happen if America suddenly loses its nuclear weapons?
        It will simply be sawed into the occupation zones.
        Only nuclear weapons limits the peoples of the Planet from forcing the United States to peace.
        And - that’s it.

      Fight with the broads as much as the Syrians, and we will look at the state of your Air Force.

    There, in the region, apparently only Egypt has less or less air force. Israel, of course, outperforms all ten goals.

          For lackey
          It turns out you can speak out on a vision of the situation, and others no-no?
          Well, Israel certainly outstrips all ten goals.

          In my opinion, you have added too much growth to Israel. Well, they would say more realistically - on two heads.

        In the 50s-60s and 70s, they built up US support for the Arabs. Israel has a powerful economy and the diaspora which will always help it.

          Write without errors, Ararat is actually in Turkey, not the United States.

      I wonder why the faces of the flight and maintenance personnel began to show ... before, somehow, the personal safety of the flyers was respected. what

      And so you look at the image and smile ... the aircraft is of a decent age ... the bomb is clearly not a precision weapon (there will obviously be a miss of tens of meters) ... and people were also spotlighted ... a propaganda picture ... although you can be glad for the Syrians. ..all the same do not lose heart and continue to do at least something.

        The Syrian SU-24Ms recently underwent modernization in the Metronom design bureau with the installation of the new SVP-24 Hephaestus sighting and navigation system, with the help of this system the usual "cast iron" of the type of this bomb becomes approximately like an adjustable bomb

            "About"refers not to the accuracy of the hit. But in the sense that a cheap cast iron is turning into an expensive KAB, that is, into a full-fledged WTO. Perhaps I did not put it that way request

    It’s not surprising, since judging by the size of the air base, the power and the number of missiles and the target, airplanes began to take off long ago, and it is not surprising that the base is working. The blow was on certain parts of the base and its infrastructure. Moreover, Trump himself said that the runway was not damaged because it is very easy to repair.
    It would be strange if the air base had not already begun work.

    But after all, she began work the very next day after the shelling ... And then they tell you a month later that she started work? Someone is lying.
