Russia destroyed the most powerful "terrorist machine" in the world: how it was

6
In September, 2015, the president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, turned to Russia with a request to assist the republic in the fight against terrorist groups. On September 30, the Federation Council of the Russian Federation agreed to the use of the Russian Armed Forces on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic to the Russian President. On the same day, Russian planes struck the first blows at militant targets in the provinces of Hama and Homs.


All airplanes involved in the operation were stationed at Hmeimim airbase in Syrian Latakia. The air defense of the base was provided by the most modern air defense systems C-300В4, С-400 and "Armor-С1", as well as the grouping of the Navy in the Mediterranean Sea.

In two years, operations in Syria, the Russian VKS, made more than 30.000 combat missions and destroyed: 900 training camps, 660 factories for the production of explosives, 1500 military equipment, more 54.000 militants.

    we have not destroyed the terrorist machine, we feed it and endure its sanctions. On dirty hands we give a slap, but no more.

    the picture for publication shows "emka". All the same, with all its drawbacks — fuel consumption, perpetual leakages, tight layout and narrow interior spaces, high landing speed — the aircraft formed the basis of the shock force and showed good serviceability of the fleet. During an emergency, I once spoke with the major navigator of the Emka with SVP-24. He said that the modernized "emka" is superior in accuracy of bombing with the free-falling M2 and the su34 delivered at that time (it was in February-March 2013). If Breo 34 eliminated these shortcomings, then only on machines of the last years of release. It seems to me that in 2020 the VKS will not say goodbye to this type, maybe in 2025 or 2030. Subjectively, decommissioning after 2 years will slightly reduce the strike potential of the VKS.
    and somehow it is not advertised, so24mp is currently the only front-line intelligence officer, in addition, with a wide range of overhead containers. About his replacement, the MO has not yet stuttered. Another 24 flies.
