Who is behind the attack on the Hmeimim airbase



Who are the performers and organizers of the failed attack against Russian military bases in Syria?

The night from 5 to 6 in January on the Syrian coast was restless. At the same time, 13 unmanned aerial vehicles, launched by militants at a distance of more than 50 km, tried to attack Russian military personnel. Ten of them were aimed at the very heart of the grouping of the Armed Forces of Russia in Syria - Hmeymim airbase. The aim of the rest of the enemy drones was located near the point of logistics of the Russian Navy in Tartus. Electronic warfare units, as well as air defense, were on the alert and prevented an air attack. There were no casualties and destruction.

The militants must belong to terrorist groups and illegal armed formations in the near future (unless, of course, the militants have the courage to take responsibility for the attack on their own, they will punish everyone without exception). But now too many questions arise, for example, where, for example, from the illegal armed formations, expensive components could have been taken, subsequently installed on primitive unmanned carriers from a wooden frame and foam plastic.

According to the Ministry of Defense of Russia, seven UAVs were hit by the Pantsir-C1 anti-aircraft missile systems, three UAVs were detonated upon landing, and three more attack drones without damage to others were planted outside the base. In the future, the technical expertise conducted by Russian experts on the surviving "samples" will show that it was only at first glance that wooden homemade products rewound with ordinary adhesive tape approached the airbase. The most valuable was inside. UAVs were equipped with modern electronics, allowing guidance to the target “according to GPS satellite coordinates”. The same applies to explosive devices attached to the drone drone. Made of plastic in artisanal conditions, "live ammunition" had foreign-made fuses and had the property of a remote controlled reset. Thus, the primitive corps and simple IEDs were combined with high-tech “brains”, which ultimately turned into a very formidable murder weapon.

The defense department emphasizes that the use of unmanned aerial vehicles by militants in one way or another indicates the transfer to the members of illegal armed groups of modern technologies (and possibly experience) by external “well-wishers”, and will necessarily have consequences not only in Syrian settlements, but also outside Middle East.
Here it is important to understand that shock drone aircraft, in essence, are the brainchild of countries with a strong defense industry and solid annual budgets in this area. The use of UAVs not only allows us to perform assigned tasks in the enemy’s rear and inaccessible terrain, but also to avoid unnecessary losses among personnel. In the case of militants, this is especially important, since the radical extremists are less likely to survive.
You do not need to be an expert to understand where the tracks lead, and who in reality is the "guardian angel" of the terrorist trash in the SAR.

The destruction of the "Islamic state" and the proclamation of the victory of Russia over the terrorist group in Syria put the international coalition led by the United States a ridicule in the eyes of the world community. The American boy scouts and their loyal allies, who have been illegally present in Syria since 2014, have, alas, not achieved dazzling success. The authority of Washington and its influence in the Syrian region dissolve before our eyes, and the pride of the superpower is seriously wounded. Billions of dollars of American taxpayers are wasted.

Perhaps for this reason in the West today launched a dirty information campaign. Only the lazy in Europe did not ascribe to themselves the merits of others, while at the same time throwing mud at the legitimate winners.

However, unsubstantiated statements are still half the point. Washington is not limited to mere verbiage. Evacuation of ISIL militants from combat areas to US military bases, training of “moderate opposition” by foreign instructors to fight Assad, financing illegal armed formations is not the fruit of someone’s sick imagination, but links in one chain. It is quite possible that the recent events at the Russian military bases are a continuation of the logical chain - alone, Hamimem and Tartus are no match for the militants alone.

      the answer is ... known
      "According to the head of the construction and development department for the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces Major General Alexander Novikov, to make such devices in artisanal conditions is impossible. In addition, a study of drones showed that they were made from Western components. Separately, explosives from drone bombs that attacked Khmeimim and Tartus were investigated separately, Novikov said. The explosive was based on a heater; which is superior in its power to RDX. The specified explosive is produced by a number of countries, including in Ukraine at the Shostkinsky factory of chemical reagents, - Novikov explains. - It cannot be made in artisanal conditions or removed from other ammunition. To make the bombs as deadly as possible, the militants stuffed them with metal balls with a radius of destruction of up to 50 meters. At the moment, the specialists of the Russian Ministry of Defense are conducting additional studies that will most accurately help establish the country of manufacture of both the bombs and the drones.

    It is precisely revealed that drones were launched from the de-escalation zone, under the control of Turkey, now it is possible to make claims against the Turkish leadership, and the US statement that drones can be bought in the public domain clearly indicates a pre-prepared excuse. Well, what do we want? No one said that everything will be simple, there is a struggle for interests in Syria, until it is clear how it will all end.

      And what, you want to say that you can’t buy? In the same Chinese hobbybike, there are telemetry equipment and GPS trackers for them. And what would it be like for "special equipment for remote reset"? Ordinary server?

        the drone working on the machine can be assembled on the simplest arduino which will use ZhPS sensors. I'm more interested in binding the on-board computer to the drone's servos — that is, sending commands to change the direction and altitude of the flight, as well as other commands. I'm certainly not special in this direction of programming, but as for me it is the most difficult. and there’s no problem buying all the iron right now - the guys who are doing serious aircraft modeling and not creating such planes - there is a much more complicated technique. This is the level of the circle the skillful handles of the first year are higher.
        one thing is that there is something to fight against such drones. Even for airfields and fuel depots, this is a very dangerous means of sabotage.

        Engines such as these drones cannot be bought on sale. I don’t know about the rest.

      No complaints can be brought against anyone. The Ministry of Defense has already stated that it destroyed the very group that launched the UAV. Of course, I doubt it, but some "daughters of military officers" indicate this seriously.

    I already said, why should our command in the same Syria not teach some Syrians how to make such mini-drones in the same way, so that later all this happiness will fall on the US and NATO bases in Syria. As well as this can be done in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan ...

    I wonder why exactly 100, then 50 km? How much does the base control? Is defense really so deep?
    At the same time, 13 unmanned aerial vehicles launched by militants at a distance of more than 50 km tried to attack the Russian military.

    How were they discovered? For any radar that is ours, that the American goal is not enough? And discover, and be able to bring down! This is generally aerobatics.

    The article and conclusions are delusional, to say the least, there are a lot of questions for which there are no answers. Some of the drones were shot down, some were planted - "virtuosos" damn it. In order for the Shell to shoot down the drone, it must detect it with a radar and aim the guns, which is already unlikely, and then manage to get into it, etc.
    Explosives were made in Ukraine, launched from Turkey, western filling, taught by Amerikosy - Conan Doyle smokes with his stories.

          That's just about the point that even with an autopilot, manual control was also carried out if you want a flight adjustment.
          The models are light, the weight of the cargo is decent, so estimate the deviation of the autopilot (yaw at the rate) without manual adjustment ....

    rave. GPS b and any other electronic equipment in the free market, anything, but how should they have been guided by wires or something, but instead of explosives there should be firecrackers ??? total nonsense. On the face of sloppiness, for a long time it was already necessary to put hangars for aircraft and none of this was there. again the enemies are to blame ...

    . Set of quotes from news feeds. Copy-Past.
    And where is the author's answer to the question in the title?
    And here he is:
    "you don’t need to be an expert to understand where the tracks lead ..." That's all.
    So I want to say:
    It is a pity that you are not an expert.

    Unproven (and for any reason) ,, poking a finger, "anywhere" causes distrust of the Russian media, of statements by representatives of state structures; and ridicule them! "A little bit" ... and right away: America is to blame, NATO, Ukraine, Israel .... It is possible that one of them happens to be to blame for the truth! But in Russia, the media, government agencies often begin to "poke a finger" at "someone" without any evidence, and, sometimes, contrary to logic! In how many countries do they produce (can produce) heating elements? In xnumx? In xnumx? In xnumx? In xnumx? By the smallest score, no less than 10 ... but Ukraine is to blame first of all! It may be to blame, but it must be proved! And now, an unproven accusation! The United States is also unprovenly accused ... maybe America will indeed be involved ... but there is currently no evidence! And it turns out that such “Russian” statements turn out to be identical to the “ravings” in the media, in the statements of the “representatives” of the USA, the EU, and Ukraine!

    Israel has long promised to destroy the s400. It is impossible to establish where drones flew from.
