Military Review

A new clash at the Euphrates made A-50U act. US claims to "Hushamsky pocket" and the south of Syria

59



Obviously, on the eve of the presidential elections in our country, the West decided to present Moscow with a whole carriage of diplomatic and military-political trials, which should result in undermining the image of the state in the global information space, shifting from former positions in the international geopolitical arena (both through the UN and on the line G20 and other organizations), as well as the deprivation of a substantial share of influence in a particular theater of military operations. The topic of the last point of the plan of our Western "partners" should be considered in expanded form, because the time to a serious change in the picture on the Syrian theater of theater is not so much.

As we noted in our previous material, the bacchanalia and bloating of aggressive rhetoric against the Russian Federation in the case of the poisoning in Salisbury, which was artificially modeled by the British special services, is aimed primarily at presenting Moscow as an active chemical weapons operator violating the relevant UN convention, and also accusing the Russian side in indulging in the use of chemical weapons Syrian Arab Army in Eastern Gute. As a result, the Pentagon acquires quite a weighty argument in favor of conducting a military operation against the Syrian army, in which it is favorably supported by the leaders and defense departments of Great Britain and France. So, for example, the head of the General Staff of the French Armed Forces, General Francois Lecuentre, has already managed to declare the readiness of the armed forces of the state to attack the non-existent "chemical weapons storage facilities in Syria" with the US Armed Forces. Apparently, Paris seeks to challenge the Washington championship in supplying the “Collin Powell test tubes” to the world community for launching new wars.

Some of our commentators often tend to give numerous information about the preparations of the Western coalition forces (led by the United States) to strike Syria as usual panicking, but as the practice of major military conflicts shows, this is a real statement of the facts that need to be able to sum up correctly and then predict the most likely scenario. As the short period of time showed, the Skrypal case, hastily modeled and inflated by London to incredible proportions, did not confine itself to the merely marasmic accusatory rhetoric of the head of the British foreign affairs agency Boris Johnson in the direction of our president. For Foggy Albion, all this “circus action” was an excellent opportunity to build a military presence with the Americans in the so-called “55-kilometer security zone” around At-Tanf military base located on the Jordanian-Syrian border. And no matter how much we now make fun of the idiotic behavior of this frustrated island nation, the deployment of its army units in the south of the SAR is an excellent help for the rocket attack on Syria planned by the headquarters of the Western coalition with a possible transition to the ground operation phase.

In particular, almost unnoticed, passed news on the transfer to At-Tanf of the British main combat tanks “Challenger 2”, attack and airborne / multi-purpose helicopters, as well as unspecified units of the British military (apparently, we are talking about fighters of the Special Airborne Service SAS), as an informed military source “@ WaelAlRussi. " Together with the US Marine Corps and Special Operations Forces units already present in the area, covered by HIMARS, M777 self-propelled guns and Apaches, Challengers are a formidable offensive force capable of ensuring a successful joint breakthrough of coalition forces and FSA formations in the direction of the southern "de-escalation zone", or the channel of the Euphrates River, which will greatly help the presence of a large 140-kilometer "left-bank boiler" ISIS.

The fact is that, despite the low dynamic qualities of this machine, due to the low specific power of 19,2 hp / t (far from the best 1200-strong CV-12 diesel is installed), the performance of the Challenger-2 is quite high and may correspond to the level of early modification of M1A2 "Abrams" in terms of equivalent durability of the frontal projection of the tower. Drawings of the welded turret “Challenger 2” demonstrate the physical dimension of the frontal armored plate of the turret in 725 mm (in the main sections) and the order of 900 mm (in the areas of the confluence of the front plates with the side armor plates). The size itself is represented by regularly upgraded armor of the “Chobham” / “Burlington” / “Dorchester” type, represented by 4-х- and 6-carbon matrices using boron carbide and silicon carbide reinforced with carbon nanotubes. Also, the matrix "Chobham" ceramic elements to increase resistance to kinetic effects. In order to avoid chipping of the ceramic component, the design of the matrix modules is covered with a polymer material, and then 50-60-mm pins integrated into the envelope of both frontal and onboard armor plates are tightened, which you can see in this photograph of the Challenger 1 tank tower ( picture below).


The top drawing of the Challenger 2 tower shows the calculated physical dimensions of the booking.


Given the availability of Dorchester special booking, the equivalent resistance of the frontal armor plates of the turret can reach 850 - 900 mm from kinetic (armor-piercing feathered sub-caliber) shells and about 1200 mm from cumulative shells. Consequently, the 2 Challenger's forehead will withstand the impact of the BOPS, such as the LAS-42М and the Lead, which are used by the Syrian T-46. Also, British cars will be able to withstand shelling from most types of Soviet / Russian ATGMs, including Konkurst-S and Metis-M. Cornets-E is able to penetrate the onboard projections of a modern English tank with assurance. To assess the penetration of the forehead of the tower requires a test in combat conditions.

The problem of the Syrian army also lies in the fact that all its most combat-ready units are concentrated around Eastern Guta and the Idlib province captured by pro-Turkish formations, and all territories located east of the At-Tanfa "safe zone" are controlled by small CAA strongholds from the village of Fayad al -Hammad to the bed of the Euphrates. The number and technological equipment of the FSA units, the US armed forces and the UK are several times greater than the government forces of Syria.

A vivid example of the upcoming hybrid operation of coalition forces against the CAA in the provinces of Homs and Deir-er-Zor is the "right-bank boiler" of ISIL, "reviving", as if by magic. In the evening, 17 in March, an online combat map, syria.liveuamap.com, citing a military source "@VivaRevolt", reported an attempt to attack the "awakened" IG cells from the Wadi er Ridge settlement on the Fortified Region of the Syrian army near the T2 pumping station (on the highway "Meyadin -T2"). The bell is very alarming, because for almost a year there was a complete lull in this area. Now in the area of ​​T-2 the most powerful battle and dozens of dead and wounded soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army. And now let's look at the map, and think: what will the capture of the T2 station and the Palmyra-Haraij highway by igilovtsy contribute to?

Damascus may temporarily be deprived of the possibility of operational transfer to Abu Kemal and Haraij of additional military units of the SSA along the Homs - Palmyra - Kharaij route. During this time, the British "Challengers" and the United States "Abrams" from At-Tanfa will only have to make an 60-kilometer-long march through the desert to the ISIL-controlled enclave. After that, an enormous tactical cauldron is formed in the southern parts of the provinces of Homs and Deir-ez-Zor with a “neck” in the region of Meyadin and El-Quria. Having deprived the Syrian army of the possibility of maneuvering through the route Palmyra - station Т2 - Haraij, the forces of the coalition on the eastern bank of the Euphrates and the subdivisions of the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) under their control will be activated. Some of these forces are capable of blocking the “neck” of the boiler in the Meyadin area, while another will project a strike in the direction of the “Hushama pocket”, on the territory of which an incident occurred in early February when a column of Syrian militias hit the AC-130 “Ganship” heavy artillery batteries and MLRS HIMARS. You need to take a closer look at this area.

Back in mid-September 2017, during the Syrian government’s offensive from liberated Palmyra to Deir ez-Zor, the command of the SAA and Russian Aerospace Forces made an absolutely reasonable decision to force the Euphrates River, squeezing out ISIS formations, and then occupying a certain territory on the eastern shore to the approach of the Washington-backed Kurdish opposition SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces). After guidance of the pontoon crossing by the engineering units of the SAA, several dozen armored vehicles with personnel advanced to the settlements of Khatlakh, Sabkhah and Marrat. Later, El-Tabiyah and Husham were freed from terrorists. On this, the advance of the Syrian regular army was suspended on maintaining control exclusively over the Khusham pocket. The difficulty in promoting CAA in SDF-controlled territory was associated with a significant superiority of enemy forces (SDF), often covered by tactical aviation US Air Force, including the 5th generation F-22A Raptor airborne systems and the F-15E Strike Eagle tactical fighters. As a result, pro-government forces managed to gain a foothold only on a small sector of the eastern coast of the Euphrates with a width of 5 km and a length of 18,5 km, which is sometimes referred to as the “Hushama Pocket” among the Kurdish “Syrian Democratic Forces” and the Western coalition forces.


Khushamsky Pocket is the main focus of tension in Deir-ez-Zor, which develops into a major conflict. Blue badges indicate: the regular site of the collision and the place of arrival of the US MTR military contingent with the NBC reporters.


And, as it became known in the evening of 15 in March of 2018, the presence of this “pocket” does not allow the headquarters of the international coalition led by the United States to sleep, nor to the field commanders of the VTS. Against the background of suspicious media silence, on Thursday morning there were far more serious clashes between pro-government Syrian militia units, after which the latter were again attacked by artillery batteries of the US Armed Forces and tactical aircraft. The battle took place in 2 km east of the main city of the “pocket” of Husham and in 5 km south of the gas processing plant (GPP) Tabieh. Information came from an Arab military source on Sound and Picture Twitter. A little later, in the evening of March 15, it became known about an interview with the American MTR general Jonathan Braga for NBC News, where he cynically accused the government forces of Syria and some “Russian forces” of regular shelling of strongholds and observation posts of the US Armed Forces, and then indicated that coalition "to a large number of attacks from the Russians." There are all signs of preparations for the next provocations.


Jonathan Braga's interview with NBC News correspondents (in 2 km south of Al-Tabiyah). Like at home ...


On the same morning, March 16, the X-NUMX of the M-ATV off-road armored vehicle advanced on the Abu Hassan-Husham highway, inspecting objects in the vicinity of Husham, along with General Braga. High-ranking military and NBC reporters Richard Angel and Kenneth Werner arrived at the Hushama pocket on a UH-2 Black Hawk multipurpose / transport helicopter. Naturally, immediately after the outbreak of hostilities at the channel of the Euphrates and the subsequent arrival of the delegation of the US military with media representatives in the area, tactical fighter aircraft of the US air force “drew” in the airspace of Syria east of Deir ez-Zor, covering the ground forces from an air strike .


Flight A-50 over the city of El-Latamna (morning of March 15). Obviously, the car was on duty in the air in advance


And this time, we must pay tribute to the command of our Aerospace Forces for the extremely rapid response. Literally in a matter of minutes after the first signs of American aviation appeared over Deir ez-Zor province, a long-range radar detection and control aircraft A-50U flew from Hmeymim airbase in the eastern air direction. Carrying out long-range radar reconnaissance at an altitude of more than 8000 m, our “airborne radar” passed over the large settlement of Lathamn (in the northern part of the province of Hama in the “Idlib gadyushnik”), where it hit the lens of an amateur ultra-zoom of one of the eyewitnesses. With regard to A-50U, the spectacle is rather rare, but after recent statements by leaders and foreign ministries of Western states about the impending aggression against Damascus in the foreseeable future, such operational sorties for combat duty will become a natural phenomenon. The main task now remains to find out when the coalition means deployed near At-Tanfa can start to act against the CAA, and where their attack can be projected.

      The article is interesting, but it seems to me that the conclusions are slightly wrong.
      It’s just that the SAA is now not up to Raqqa and Deir Es Zora (on the left bank of the Euphrates), but when the militants are finally strangled in Idlib and other boilers and the relative peace sets in. The question will be how to raise the country from ruins and restore the economy. Industry and processing in the country are destroyed, most of the machines and equipment are removed and destroyed. There is no where to take foreign loans from, Russia is unlikely to pull tens of billions in debt. And here, oil and gas production is simply a lifeline for the country. Yes, the numbers there are not big but still 1-2 million barrels per day is a trifle but pleasant. And here Syria will simply be forced to take back those oil-bearing regions from the Kurds back to itself. One US problem. But it seems to me that with proper preparation, just saturate the front line of air defense, S-200, S-300, Buki and the Americans do not poke. And without US support, CAA will crush the Kurds quite quickly. As it was in Kirkuk, as it is happening now in Afrin.
      I think so.

        There is no need here for the liberalistic delirium "the country is in ruins - we will all die" (that is, the Syrians). More than once they wrote about our desire to engage in economics on a mutually beneficial basis, and in the back, but no matter how close already, the Chinese — and they have dough and machine tools and everything above the roof. fool
        It is probably time to talk about a "fight for the right to restore Syria."

          That's right. The fact is that loans for the restoration of Syria can become a powerful driver of the Russian economy, no matter how unusual it sounds. Provided, of course, that the loans will be related and should be spent on the purchase of Russian goods and equipment, as well as on the payment of contract work of Russian companies. That is, all this money will be spent on strengthening and developing the Russian economy and business, taxes will go to the budget, and Syria will receive a restored economy, and it will repay the debt according to the established schedule (interest on loans will also go to the treasury, through taxes) under the guarantees of the Syrian government . Debt obligations of a sovereign state will be a reliable guarantee for the Central Bank to issue the required amount, without burdening the investment resources of the Russian banking system. Loans, I repeat, should be tied and spent mainly in Russia to pay for the work of Russian contractors.

        1- about loans - Iran and China are ready to invest more than 100 lard in the restoration of Syria, so no need here
        2 - about air defense, if you don’t understand, it’s better not to write, you should listen, you have to force the entire territory of Syria with air defense systems, for sure.
        3 - about oil - gas will pump Syria 1-2 million barrels, but where and to whom will it sell them? Look at the map of oil and gas pipelines before you write nonsense here, everything mined goes to Syria’s domestic consumption

          Even if Syria, for economic reasons, does not want to regain some of the lost land. There remains a political reason, some strange comrades seized the entire north of the country, both platinum, a number of arable land. They don’t negotiate, they don’t want to unite, from part they obey the direct enemies of Syria (USA), how to live with such people further? How would you act in this case?

        The main enemy of Syria for fifty years - Israel, now I’ve changed the strategy to quiet, "other people's hands". The remaining neighbors, the opponents of Israel, signed a "peace treaty", Syria - no. Jordan has completely "laid down", Egypt is somehow fluttering. Assad clearly learned the lesson of Gaddafi - you can’t sit on two chairs, the priest will fail.

      I reluctantly agree with you - they certainly can get into Syria, but they’ll hardly get out + how to get squares in Syria in Iraq-Afghanistan, each aul will have to take each roadside assault by storm with deployment, victims among personnel, etc. .d.
      As for me, at Assad’s place I would have warned the nudes that it would not work to sit over the ocean in the event of an attack and would have shot a couple of tankers or gas carriers from the RPG-ATGM offshore or better off the coast near the terminals in confirmation of my words.

        I do not pretend to be any truth, but I think the hostilities of the Western coalition against Iraq and Syria are different things. In Iraq, they fought against regular formations and their entire doctrine of war was the best fit: domination at sea => domination in the sky => ground punitive (by this time, the Iraqi Armed Forces were no longer there) operation => guerrilla warfare. On the ground, the coalition forces were simply destroying individual pockets of resistance.
        In Syria, initially there will already be a guerrilla war, so the SAR Armed Forces under such military operations are currently imprisoned. Given the saturation of the ATGM and MANPADS forces, not a single western country will send its tanks and helicopters against an enemy who is not defeated or demoralized, and even without accurate intelligence. Before my eyes there is still fresh experience of the Turkish armed forces battles against the irregular Kurdish troops. Most likely they will stupidly drive their tame dogs out of the armed opposition and support them from the air.

      Shoigu will give the last chance or change it to Surovikin.

      Dear, you are a little in the wrong place and want to change it! smile Surovikin is an experienced, competent and sensible commander of the VKS, Shoigu is an excellent organizer, a competent leader, and he is the Minister of Defense! It's almost like in cinema - the director and director of the film! smile

    The prospect is so-so. It may well begin a serious batch. I suspect that it will be synchronized in time with the offensive of the Armed Forces in the Donbass and provocations in the Baltic. It is possible that from the south they will prepare something ..

    It seems that if we do not drop our contingent of troops there (artillery, motorized rifles, airborne forces), then there will be nothing left of Syria. The Americans are not embarrassed; they should be piled on all the rules of international law and on what others will say. Half the country will calmly take over and no one will even pickle. If before that, our troops do not have time to abandon their troops. But, unfortunately ... ours will not be in time.

      Our troops are there in sufficient numbers to support the Syrian armed forces. Any threats that our partners can create there, we can resist, so we don’t want to try it, so they freak out. But Damantsev is a screenwriter in Hollywood.

    Yeah. The hornet’s nest in Syria, all the worst partners gathered in a quiet glanders, if at the beginning of the Russian operation in Syria, the United States and Co. they didn’t know how to act, now they are grouped, considered, made a decision, I think the battle will be “bloody”. Not for life but for death, now about tanks and other vehicles, there is no killable equipment, I hope that the Russians will confirm their status with a savvy that has helped our soldiers and country more than once in many wars. Hard times are coming, in the Syrian theater, and in Ukraine.



    About Ukraine, here our (your) analysts were rattling that the hour "Ch" for opening the lid of the Donetsk boiler would come on March 16. For three days now we’ve been waiting, with, like on needles, the whole parrot popcorn, the dog is gobbled up - lol

    KMK, with the slightest activity of coalition forces outside its established bases, it is necessary to immediately adequately cover the site using Tornado, TSA and Iskander in case of emergency. We need to demonstrate strength. If possible, it would be nice to use DRONs, which can later be blamed.

    Good day! I read ... I am surprised ... As with the author and those who are ready to move tanks and planes from place to place on the map ... All this is more comparable with the cries of Great Britain about the murder of a former prisoner who covered the back of a great island nation. laughing
    But seriously, the war in Syria over carbohydrates ... Well, in the sense of money ... And do not talk about the terrorists in Syria whom we and the United States, according to our own claims, defeated ... so the troops left in Syria and we continue to strengthen them, while we are at least somehow legally, and the United States is just according to our wishes. And mind you, they are also pouring mud on us, and the United States seems to be well done ... am This is about the victories of our diplomacy.
    And now, in essence, no matter how much we might dream of it, and we can’t even talk about any confrontations between the USA and the Russian Federation in Syria until Assad’s troops cross the Euphrates from west to east and not in the form of a pocket shot through, but really. The United States itself will neither cross the Euphrates from east to west nor even provide air support to the Kurds or Turks on the west bank of the Euphrates, much less will they bomb Damascus. The United States, in my opinion, is quite satisfied with the balance that now has, that is, control over the eastern coast of the Euphrates. The fact is that financially the Russian Federation will not withstand the protracted conflict in Syria and, as practice shows, it is us who are being poured mud all over the world.
    So in Syria, the confrontation and even more so the direct conflict (military) between the Russian Federation and the United States is postponed for a long time.
    All gentlemen, you can remove the saber back into the scabbard, otherwise we begin to look stupid with the saber among the office plankton. laughing

    we would have time to supply and redeploy in Syria 6 S-300ПМУ2 air defense divisions by 8 PU
    and to the existing 24 ZRPK Shell, add another 12.
    then the raid from 600 Toprov will not be scary

    - The Americans can easily and simply destroy the entire air defense and all the Syrian air forces (having warned the Russian representatives there in a few minutes). And without air support, the warriors of Bashar al-Assad will not be able to do anything. And having organized direct air support to its allies, the United States will achieve those goals. which were originally set: the division of the former territory of Syria into enclaves - Alawite-Shiite in the west, Sunni in the south and in the center, Turkoman - on the borders of Turkey and Kurdish in the east.
    And then peace and prosperity will reign in the former territory of Syria.

      Fantasy idiot. Forget about the Bastions, Iskanders, Caliber, Dagger. I'm not talking about the S-400 and A-50 with the Krauchs, Levers, Murmansk, Su-35S, Su-30 and so on. and so on ... + a group of the Russian Navy off the coast of Syria, not to mention multipurpose nuclear submarines in the Mediterranean Sea, ready for a tactical nuclear strike along its entire perimeter, if that ...

      This is not the place where fools sit to believe in Jewish fairy tales. The reality of power in the world and on BV is different than the gentlemen from Haifa are bubbling to the public ...

      And for any actions of NATO ground intervention, the Russian Airborne Forces will respond. Airborne brigade fly from Russia a maximum of 4 hours to anywhere in Syria.
      By article:
      Putin’s main strategy is to respond appropriately to the threat. Based on this strategy, the ground forces of the Russian Federation can be brought into Syria ONLY after the corresponding aggression of NATO ground forces.

      Why didn’t we send troops there? Because it was a trap of the West, to substitute them under ISIS. But NATO troops are a completely different matter. In this case, it is Russia's duty to protect its ally from NATO. Again, because it is better to fight NATO in Syria than on the borders between NATO and Russia. Here is an adequate logic. That is what Putin follows. And the West knows that. Therefore, they will try to scare, but at the last moment they will back down. You will see.

      The main thing - do not hysteria yourself and do not endure the brain of others with hysteria. This article title is normal. For him - plus in karma. In general, just an opinion. To which everyone is entitled. And not an obvious hysteria with a claim to the truth.

    [quote = bayard] Absolutely. The fact is that loans for the restoration of Syria can become a powerful driver of the Russian economy, no matter how unusual it sounds. Provided, of course, that the loans will be related and should be spent on the purchase of Russian goods and equipment, as well as on the payment of contract work of Russian companies. That is, all this money will be spent on strengthening and developing the Russian economy and business, taxes will go to the budget, and Syria will receive a restored economy, and it will repay the debt according to the established schedule (interest on loans will also go to the treasury, through taxes) under the guarantees of the Syrian government . Debt obligations of a sovereign state will be a reliable guarantee for the Central Bank to issue the required amount, without burdening the investment resources of the Russian banking system. Loans, I repeat, should be tied and spent mainly in Russia to pay for the work of Russian contractors.
    This is a classic scheme in which the creditor state always wins, and under reasonable loan conditions the borrower wins. Similarly, lending to the Soviet economy was carried out, similarly, lending to the American banking system is carried out.
    This is the nature of money and the rules for its issue under guarantees and collateral.

    I reluctantly agree with you - they certainly can get into Syria, but they’ll hardly get out + how to get squares in Syria in Iraq-Afghanistan, each aul will have to take each roadside assault by storm with deployment, victims among personnel, etc. .d.
    As for me, at Assad’s place I would have warned the nudes that it would not work to sit over the ocean in the event of an attack and would have shot a couple of tankers or gas carriers from the RPG-ATGM offshore or better off the coast near the terminals in confirmation of my words.

    - Putin has a faithful foot soldier! His name is Ramzan Kadyrov. So he and his army of nukers need to be massively transferred to the Syrian-American front. Thousands of 50-60, well-armed and equipped. Only this fearless army is able to stop the hordes of the Yankees on the outskirts of Damascus ...

      Will induce the Su-34, Ka-52 and so on. Reset a column of tanks - half an hour of work. There was a team and .. swam away. Teleported to hell ..

      Of course, on the ground, the S-300B4 regiment, covered by Torah, and from the air, the Su-35 covers the strike group. The interference lever leads to everything radiating from this brigade of suicide bombers .. And Iskander resets the MLRS of the aggressors, the positions of the barrel artillery and headquarters. Everything is contactless. After the Airborne Forces brigade catches English and American ground squirrels and under their cameras, and then for construction work - let Damascus rebuild ... And then let Russia isolate as much as you like, losers. And screech in fright. Then the whole world will send these losers. All in turn and in bulk ...

      And the main thing in this matter is not to rush. And starting - to achieve a total and quick victory without a doubt who is the boss and who is the loser ... And they won’t rock, * uki ...

    It is urgent to modernize and integrate all the Syrian air defense systems. Reliably cover important objects from impact or disperse them. A new strike by the Tomahawks will be terrible in its massiveness. This will be a serious test for our air defense systems. Indeed, for all their perfection, even on our territory, we simply cannot withstand a strike with a capacity of several thousand cruise missiles.

    Here he is, the West, in full shitty beauty, like a jackal, coyotes awaiting bloody production in Syria. Well, these scum need free stocks of oil and gas on Syrian soil, and not, supposedly, their protection of pawns in their game of poor Kurds. Europeans, and especially Merikan scoundrels, have lived for centuries at the expense of other nations and states, and here you see, Russia was seeking out and began to protect entire states from robbery and violence. That’s why the washers - the British and the garbage collection racks of thieves and bandits from all over the world fleeing to them, and May were hysterical, because of the failure from the break-up and the disturbing Russians
