The heavy flamethrower system "Solntsepek" showed itself well in Syria during the destruction of the underground shelters of militants, said the commander of the troops of the Central Military District, Alexander Lapin.


Unique car. Ex-head of the headquarters of the Russian group in Syria spoke about the "Sun"


Perfectly proven new heavy flame-thrower system "Sunpipe". I will say, the most unique car. Often, we were greatly rescued when it was necessary to destroy the militants in some underground or semi-underground shelters.
- said Lieutenant-General Lapin, until November 2017, who headed the headquarters of the Russian group in Syria.

Earlier on Thursday, Lapin reported that the Syrian army, with the support of the Russian military, had destroyed about 65 thousands of militants during the operation, of which 819 was the ringleader of the gangs.

The Russian Defense Ministry has not previously officially reported on the use of "Sun Chains" in Syria, but these systems featured on videotapes published by the Syrian Ministry of Defense. Judging by the video, the system was used during the battles for the Syrian Palmyra.

      I agree . I hope that based on their use in Syria, they will draw conclusions and upgrade.

          To upgrade means to improve. TOS-2 is a modernized TOS-1, which in aggregate surpasses its predecessor.

      Respected polpot (Andru), may be necessary in order to drive the natives. But now any other more or less equipped army will quickly turn it into trash even when approaching the firing position. Yes, and I strongly doubt the effectiveness of the natives. He himself witnessed how, after a three-day processing by the “Pinocchio” in Komsomolskoye (this is in the Chechen Republic, if that), the fighters very well shot back.

        Chet you confuse .. It was in Komsomolskiy that Buratinko helped .. There the peacekeeper came out, and the spirits were sitting in concrete basements with loopholes. The artillery didn’t help much, especially since .. Buratinka is being exported in a simplified version .. well, not itself, but shells for it. In Komsomolsky they used delayed shells, a mixture of ventilation and through loopholes penetrated the basements ... then detonation .. The picture at the scene of the explosion was huge ..

      Good thing, you just need to use it more often, otherwise China is already declaring Russia's weakness.
      "A few days ago, an article was published in the East Day Chinese publication in which experts from the PRC reproached the president of the Russian Federation for essentially starting to give up Russia's position as a superpower. This is due, according to analysts from the PRC, primarily The fact that Russia completely ignored the last two massive air and missile attacks on Syrian territory without using its air defense systems, and after the meeting between Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu, Russia announced that it did not intend to supply S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems.
      “Russia is a superpower equal in US military power and potential. Nevertheless, recent events have shown that this country is gradually starting to give up its positions, which is expressed by the weakness manifested in Syria, although initially, Russia promised to protect Syria from any external threats. All this demonstrates Putin’s weakness - he is losing ground, ”the publication says ...."

      Duc, there they are in service, exactly like the UR-77 (Meteorite-Serpent Gorynych) - with sappers. Yes, it turned out funny: the most savage devices we have are armed with "auxiliary" arms of service created to eliminate the consequences of the enemy’s vital activity. The problem is solved in an original way - through the harsh elimination of the enemy. laughing

      They created it specifically for those purposes, as they use it, but declared it as a device for disinfecting the area and assigned it to the Russian Chemical Safety Base, there is (or was) some kind of convention prohibiting the use of flamethrowers in combat units as inhumane weapons

      6 August 1982 during the Lebanese-Israeli war, Israel also tested similar weapons on people. An Israeli Air Force plane dropped a BOV on an 8-storey apartment building, an explosion occurred in the vicinity of the house at the level of 1-2 floors. As a result of the explosion, the building was completely destroyed, about 300 people died, mostly not in the building, but in the vicinity of the explosion site.

    judging by this video, the scatter is so huge that shooting from one machine is generally meaningless, as in the Second World War, Katyushas were only effective when used in large numbers because of the large spread

    Something on the video "scatter" is large. It seems that the "installation" does not change the degree of rotation.

      There, the spread in power is compensated and they can work several at once so that in general everything will be covered.
      I always considered it a kind of MLRS.

    These are not flamethrowers, in the literal sense of the word, but thermobarric ammunition! That is, vacuum bombs! First, oxygen is burned out at the point of explosion, and then super-pressure is created during collapse. Neither napalm, nor any other. Combustible mixture is used.

    Something is very doubtful for 3 days to be fired continuously! Etozh, how many echelons do you need to deliver a PSU if a salvo is over 20 ''? And if there were breaks, then who prevented the devils from leaving the shelled positions and returning to them after the shelling ceased? And one more nuance! The necessary effect is achieved when the enemy is in closed fortifications and premises, when the shock wave does not spread along the sides, but concentrates in the center (Lapin said that he showed himself well when shelling underground fortifications)! And in Komsomolsky, as far as I remember, there were no fortifications; there were hastily open trenches. But Pinocchio was used there, believing that it was a simple flamethrower (as the name says), but in the essence of the effect used, nobody really bothered to figure it out! I apologize, the warriors are bad, who made these decisions there! As far as I remember, the operation was led by the FSK officers and the MVD officers, great strategists! Especially in terms of the use of special forces as a simple infantry!
