MANPADS "Igla" returned to the Syrian army

Soldiers of the Syrian army will again begin to use man-portable air defense systems. For the first time in several years, an image of a government soldier with Igla-1 MANPADS appeared on the Internet. Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

MANPADS "Igla" returned to the Syrian army


Until recently, like weapon could only be seen in the hands of militants of illegal formations. As a result of their use a significant number of helicopters and airplanes of various types and purposes were destroyed.

The source of the arrival of MANPADS to terrorist groups, as a rule, was captured army warehouses, as well as foreign sponsors. We are talking about portable complexes "Igla", "Strela-2", Chinese FN-6 and North Korean HT-16PGJ (the latter were only in the arsenals of CAA).

Earlier, Pyongyang acquired a license to manufacture these weapons. According to some reports, the HT-16PGJ complexes are still being produced, moreover, they are being modernized.

As for the delivery of complexes from abroad, it was not a mass phenomenon. Western curators rightly feared that MANPADS could, sooner or later, appear in other hot spots, for example, in Afghanistan, where they would be used on NATO aircraft.

    They are seriously preparing for an offensive in the south - all of a sudden, the Ishilov f-15/16/35 with black flags on the tail from Israel or Jordan will fly. From Lebanon, for sure.

        Fuck logic. There were no Eagles in the army, but the gangs had ... from army depots.
        MANPADS never left the army, only ISIS do not use (have not used so far) helicopters. But Israel did not enter the zone of defeat, from the territory of Lebanon rockets are hammering.
        The appearance of MANPADS in parts means that targets have appeared / are expected for them. But which ones are a very interesting question.

      Leave you Israel. Do not take off and do not fly. Yesterday, one Israeli UAV flew in,
      as if by accident and by chance, and "he fell" near the Golan Heights in Syria. Probably tired ... laughing photo attached, for Israeli colleagues ... wink

    Meanwhile, MO Az-na recognized the Gunnut operation in the direction of Nakhichevan, which was first reported by the Armenian media. But MO Az-na was silent about this, today a report is shown showing the positions of the Armenians, which the army of Az-na keeps Karabakh on control, and a map of action. A total of 11 hectares of strategic heights returned by the army of Az-na.
    In addition, the Az-na Defense Ministry announced new helicopters with armaments with a range of 10-50 km, most likely the Bell412. As well as new air defense systems, there are rumors in the parade that new Turkish-made ballistic missiles will be shown. Zakir Hasanov said “At the parade you will see weapons that they have heard but not seen ”

        No complaints all cheeky bunches))
        Azerbaijan is one of two post-Soviet countries that did not fall under either the United States (NATO) or Russia (CSTO).
        On the contrary, it signed an agreement on non-alignment with military blocs. Horseradish is not sweeter in this case.

            The fact that a successful operation was carried out, new strategic heights were captured from which you can control the road along which the transfer of Armenian forces to Karabakh will be possible. They will have to make a hook through Martuni or Vedi for transfer, the next target is the village of Kärkyu to keep the bypass road through Vedi, to the distance of mortar fire. New types of weapons have been bought that will show, among them American helicopters, which suggests that the embargo can already be formally lifted, missiles, ballistic, anti-aircraft. Why aren’t they farts? Despite the fact that the liberation of lands in the Nakhichevan Direction was sudden for Armenians, they lost one soldier, freeing 11 hectares of mountainous and not only territory.

            "Cheeky farts" this is so, for self-reveling. Tension will increase in direct proportion to the tension between Ankara and Washington. Armenia smoothly passed under the external control of the United States (de facto). Ankara will use at the right time the CONFLICT of Armenia and Azerbaijan in its interests. And all that .. A sort of "Babayka" to achieve their interests. Armenia in this paradigm of relations is also in "chocolate". "America is with us." Something familiar.

              Armenia came under US control?))) Armenia is a vassal state of Russia, the entire economy is tied to Russia, the sky of Armenia, the border with Turkey in Armenia is controlled by the Russian Armed Forces. Armenia in the CSTO and not in NATO. Will Turkey use it? maybe Russia? Turkey has no economic and military interests in Armenia, it has a border closed with Armenia. And so they all said correctly, just change Turkey to Russia, if Russia needs not stability, it will give its vassal a command. Russia has problems with the USA, this Russia should not let Az-on be American-oriented and Armenia is the lever. The first Turkey does not have relations with Armenia, the second Armenia is controlled not by the USA but Russia, the third Turkey and so on in excellent relations with Az.
              He set everything upside down, analyst damn)))

              Yeah, really. But they were just one family recently, they worked together, raised children. How painfully beat these shoots of frenzied nationalism, delighting everyone who gnashed their teeth in the USSR.

    Well, these MANPADS were not removed from service. The fact that their activity was noticed is connected with the approach of the American AUG. And the Needles land Tomahawks well. The main thing is to place the Needle calculations in the right strategic positions.
