Last Sunday, the Syrian air force lost a combat aircraft over the East Kalamoun. The incident occurred during the attacks on terrorist objects in a mountainous region in the north-east of Damascus, reports Messenger of Mordovia.

In Syria, shot down the MiG-29 fighter of the air force ATS?

Immediately on the Internet were published reports that the downed aircraft is Su-24. However, military experts, having carefully studied the video promulgated by the militants, noted that it is rather a matter of the MiG-29 fighter. This opinion is also shared by the expert on the Syrian war, Yuri Lyamin.

“The car shown on video frames is not like a famous front-line bomber. The car looks more like a MiG-29. They are based on the nearby Es-Sin airbase.

Previously, the "twenty-ninths" have already been brought to combat use in the area. According to all data, this is the first loss among the fighters of this type during the entire war, ”writes Lyamin.

In total, according to information from open sources, as part of the Syrian Air Force today are about 30 such fighters.

      I wonder why a fighter was used at all? Scared enemy aircraft? Most likely, as a front-line bomber ... This is the result of the misuse of military equipment: the plane was shot down!

        MiG-29 - front-line fighter to support ground forces. Its functions include striking the ground, so it was used for its intended purpose. Another thing is that outdated avionics. And he needs to go down below to strike. Surely there is no EW complex. hi

        What will Medvedev upload to ships and cruise missiles? There are no suitable nuclear charges. On Russian missiles, there are only false targets, there are no real targets ...

        The Americans claim that Russia has tactical nuclear charges in the amount of 4-8 thousand pieces. Only this is enough to deter any aggressor.

          The "newbie" was invented by the authors of the English series, which was played on their TV from last October until February of this year. We have a prototype cinematic OM called A234. winked

      Recently, they discussed another topic, only Su 24.
      Now Lyamin is talking about MiG 29, not Su ...
      For such photos and videos is not very clear ....
      And the Syrians are silent, and about the pilot too ....

    It is strange why the wreckage of a crashed plane is not shown, it would immediately become clear which plane was shot down.

    Russia is no longer a nuclear power !!! Vladimir Uglev, the creator of Novichka, at, about the Kremlin’s cardboard nuclear warheads and why, they’re not afraid of Russia. He told WHY WE NEED NEW ROCKETS? Even during Medvedev’s "presidency", the Russian authorities announced grandiose plans in the military sphere - "Serial construction of warships, primarily nuclear-powered submarine cruisers with cruise missiles and multipurpose submarines, is planned. An airborne system will be created space defense. " To which Condoleezza Rice in an interview with Reuters responded calmly - "The balance of forces from the point of view of nuclear deterrence from these actions will not change." And why would he change? What will Medvedev upload to ships and cruise missiles? There are no suitable nuclear charges. On Russian missiles, there are only false targets, there are no real targets. To build missile defense against missiles like "Satan" is crazy, once you miss it, and goodbye to a dozen large cities. But against the radioactive scrap metal that was replaced with warheads on Russian missiles today (most likely, it was removed because the old weapons-grade plutonium is very hot - it’s hot like an iron), it’s possible to create an anti-missile defense against it, if missile defense is missed, then there’s nothing much to worry about it will happen, although it is unpleasant then to disinfect a hectare of its territory. The missile defense system is designed to catch radioactive scrap metal when the Russian Federation will be finally disarmed. Http: //

    Well yes! Just returned from an inspection trip, where he personally made sure that they are cardboard !? True, what kind of full-hole one will it allow (only a head?) To cardboard warheads? Padi, yesterday there was a scuffle, and so a snack so vaabsche parasha? So in the morning, brains flew out along with the vomit (if they ever were !?). How many, dear, did they pour silver pieces?

    Lyamin claims MiG 29,
    It’s strange. and in Ukraine they say that the plane is not with the Syrian crew at all.

    I wonder what kind of weapon was used? It’s not easy to knock it off with MANPADS, it’s not Su-24, 25. If the ZU-23, then why did it go down ... Ehh, because of the shortage, you have to use fighters as attack aircraft.

      Yes, here in another thread, some "experts" said that remaking a fighter into an attack aircraft is easy ...

    It's hard to say, but here is infa from the 18th
    Information is verified. It is reported that during take-off from the Saykal air base, East Kalamun, the Su-24 of the SAR Air Force fell. Perhaps the plane was shot down by militants.
