Pentagon: drones that attacked Russian bases in the SAR are on sale

37
The Pentagon does not have detailed data on the circumstances of the recent militant attack on military facilities of the Russian Federation in Syria, however, drawing on its own experience, the agency believes that extremists operating in the Middle East use unmanned aerial vehicles available on the open market in making such attacks, TASS.




I have no details as to what Russian forces face in Syria,
Pentagon spokesman Adrian Rankin-Galloway acknowledged, commenting on the attempt to attack militants on the Russian bases in Hamim and Tartus.

But I can tell you that the coalition forces fighting against the IS (grouping is prohibited in the Russian Federation) and our partners were faced with commercially available unmanned aerial systems used by the militants. These systems are widely available, they are easy to control, and they certainly do not require substantial technical expertise. These systems were used (by militants) to conduct basic reconnaissance and the installation of explosives,
he said.

According to him, these UAVs, "of course, are deadly," but their use "to date has not had a significant impact on coalition operations."

We take appropriate measures to protect our personnel to ensure that coalition forces and our partners can safely carry out their missions,
Pentagon spokesman added.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that on Saturday night the attack of the 13 drone drone against the bases in Hmeimim and Tartus was repelled. Seven aircraft were shot down, six were managed to intercept, and three of them were planted on the territory controlled by the Russian military.

Engineering solutions used by terrorists during an attack on Russian facilities in Syria could only be obtained from one of the countries with high technological capabilities for providing satellite navigation and remote control of dumping professionally assembled improvised explosive devices at designated coordinates,
stressed in the ministry.

The military department also noted that the fact that the militants had applied "strike-type unmanned aerial vehicles of the aircraft type indicates that technology has been transferred to the militants to enable them to carry out terrorist acts using such UAVs in any country."

      Of course, the baboons also use "store" devices, such as quadrocopters from China, which are everywhere enough, but their range is not more than 7 km, usually up to two. And in Khmeimim they besieged the Pointer family, in short from Aerovironment. These are military developments in the field of UAVs and their production. RQ-20 with a flight duration of up to 5 hours. Those in Khmeimim are not like 20, they have no V-shaped wings .. But by special order, you can bungle anything, the main thing is the filling!

        The Arabs have a slightly different style - they cut the heads of the masters, and to think is not their part .. They have "older brothers" to think. Americans, Turks, Israelis .. They not only heal spirits, but also supply them. Now drones and times with conventional weapons did not work ..

            Well, well ... Israel has never been involved in the treatment of wounded terrorists, and has never been the largest oil hub stolen by ISIS in Syria, and has never provided direct fire support to the barmaley in Syria. Usually, young people with such beliefs have a direct opposite attitude to the issues of Russian aggression, in general, the opposite is true: Putin is a world evil, Russian troops are defeated in the Donbass, Assad is a bloody dictator who, with the support of Russia, poison and poison his people with chemical weapons, Russians are barbarians , Europe is a civilization.
            Thank God that we have very few such Ivanov without a middle name and without a fatherland.

    And it didn’t occur to anyone to answer this categorical statement that in Syria because of the WAR there is no free access to the markets and such drones and their components can only come from OUT. Like the mortars of VASILYOK which in Syria have never been and which by their logic, apparently also was on sale. This is the work of the United States in favor of this version and the fact that the shelling of the base was undertaken by the non-existent "Alavite Revolutionary Organization" is a real legend - under-ice culprits to confuse the trail.

      cornflowers in Syria were. When the Soviet Union was supplied. There is another option that it’s not the “cornflower” itself, but its Chinese W99 that worked on the base.

    On eBay they’re not looking for anything, but most often the “muddy” ads are placed by the special services, but here you think what you want to catch the “bad terrorists” or thus arm the “moderates” it all depends on which side of the ocean to look at. In general, once again the "Freudian reservation" from the Americans. The question is, how do dual-use and purely military-use technologies fall into "free sale", as usual, they are out of brackets.

    emphasized in the ministry. "_____________________ This is just a masterpiece of the stupidity of the Ministry of Defense ... The Internet is full of videos of how barmaley are literally assembled in the garage, and self-propelled drones and explosive devices to them. And how they bomb, while taking pictures of what is happening ... Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation saw it? And they don’t know how and who, having dropped such a self-made bomb, completely destroyed the ammunition depot in Deir al-Zor ??! How are Syrian tanks destroyed from above? Why are they so busy in the Moscow Region if they don’t know and don’t know ?!

    As for work, as part of the commission, we went around the shelters of our district (in 2014), these are basements of buildings, as a rule they are closed and abandoned, some of them have lost their keys. At the opening of one such "bomb shelter", we found a room where until about 1993 (according to entries in the visit log) there was a modeling circle and a pneumatic shooting gallery (8 serviceable Izhevsk rifles were in a safe). There were six boats with a rubber propeller, two or three aircraft with internal combustion engines and several rockets with parachutes. So the photo of these drones looks a lot like those planes with ICE! the same clumsy HIGH-TECH glider, only there is no cord to control!
