          Not only "it was already somewhere"but not so much news. why be surprised? The usual practice is to test weapons (if there is such an opportunity) in a combat situation.

            If the article already spelled out that Syria had bought a batch of Pechenegs before the war, albeit a small one, it would be strange not to see them there. yes

    A lot of things have been noticed there, for there is war. A weapon is best tested in real combat conditions, which is now observed in Syria.

      As voiced by the Russian Ministry of Defense, during the time of Russia's participation in the Syrian conflict, more than 200 new weapons were tested. Very not sickly. yes

    They were healthy: the party of “Pechenegs” was sent to the Kurds back in the year 15, there were photos of Kurdish female fighters with a “Pecheneg”. News from the category of "eternal"? No.

    Yes .... you take the PC, the barrel from the FCT, adjust the contactor, masturbate the optical Pribluda. Then, 600 meters on the carp, you lay down a heavy bullet ..... beauty. Not a single bronik will save. It will be called ASPK - automatic sniper rifle.

    Again, "noticed"? Well, right today they noticed Pecheneg. And before that, didn’t you notice? This photo was published two years ago in an article about the "seen weapons": https://42.tut.by/476960
    good
    In December 2015, the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Valery Gerasimov said that Russia supplies weapons and ammunition to the Free Syrian Army. laughing
    December 11 2015 of the year Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin announced that the Russian air group “Promotes the unification of efforts” of the forces of the Free Syrian Army with government forces fighting the terrorists.
    “I emphasize that the work of our air group helps to unite the efforts of both government troops and Syrian Free Army. Now several of its units totaling more than five thousand people, as well as regular troops, are conducting offensive operations against terrorists in the provinces of Homs, Hama, Aleppo and Raqqa. In addition, we support them from the air, as well as the Syrian army, helping them with weapons, ammunition and materiel. ”

    So, whoever holds this Pecheneg in my hands, I have no firm confidence.
    Later, the press secretary Dmitry Peskov densely showered excuses and for a long time got out of an uncomfortable position. . lol
    By the way, Vladimir Vladimirovich already said that immigrants from the Russian Federation are fighting in Syria.
    Militants, including immigrants from Russia and the CIS countries, have created a real bridgehead in this country.

    Those who want to make sure can visit the website of the President of Russia and read the text entitled "Extended meeting of the board of the Ministry of Defense." http://kremlin.ru/events/president/news/50913
    The report generally has a lot of interesting things. Recommend. hi

    The Afghans did just that, only optics were tied with electrical tape. I don’t know how they shot it. But our daoys were wounded, and there was no way around the mountains, the path was narrow. Two hours fucked. Then they dragged the ags and shot both inventors from the canopy.

    Probably, some samples did not live up to their expectations. Now the main thing is that the General Staff draw the right conclusions.
    One old man told me: before the civil war in Spain, we preferred boots, and after Spain we switched to windings and drew attention to the cap there. I don’t know, but about the cap I met information that the cap appeared in him as a uniform for Russian pilots and was called: “pilot cap”, hence the name “cap”
