Reported downed Su-Xnumx in Syria


According to unverified data, the Su-22 was shot down today in the south of Idlib province. According to preliminary data, the pilot was captured. Information about the incident was distributed by Syrian sources.

The degree of reliability of the information is currently unknown. However, the source accompanied the note with frames of a column of smoke above the horizon.



Earlier, the Syrian army launched an operation to liberate Idlib from militants. The ceasefire had to be interrupted due to constant shelling of the SAA’s positions by terrorists of the Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham group (formerly Jebhat al-Nusra), which was banned in the Russian Federation.

Su-22 is an export version of the Su-17 fighter. The version with the R-29BS-300 engine and the original avionics (LDiP "Klen-PS") was called the Su-22М3 and was produced in a small series in 1982-1983. Su-22М4 is an export version of Su-17М4. Both cars were in service with the Syrian Air Force.

Official Damascus is actively using these aircraft to strike at militant positions. During the confrontation with the forces of terrorist groups and the international coalition, the Syrian Arab Republic lost 11 vehicles of this type, not counting the cars mentioned in the note.

        Syrian pilots use this plane as an attack aircraft .... They shoot Nurses and cannons ... They can drop bombs in manual mode ... The complexes do not work there, half of the equipment too .... Su-22M4 can bomb in the machine with a large heights in theory with good equipment and working RSBN / RSDN .... according to known coordinates, but this is in theory ...

        Most likely it will be so if they do not have time to repulse. But such operations will not work for one or two. In general, the position of the pilot is nowhere worse.

      Photo of the pilot of the Su-22 with the rank of colonel.


      Meanwhile, the boiler is shutting down.

      The line of defense of militants in northern Syria is falling apart before our eyes. The Syrian army is already on the western approaches to the city of Khan Sheikhun.

      Fighting broke out at the Al-Salam checkpoint at the western entrance to the city. The Islamists are fiercely defending themselves, trying to push back the military and launch a counteroffensive. They need to recapture the dominant Tal-As height in order to secure the city again.

      And now I’ll add a little drama so that you understand what is at stake in this battle.

      Khan Sheikhoun is one of the main strongholds of anti-government groups in the south of Idlib province, the "gateway" to Idlib, in a sense.

      It is here that the headquarters of several groups from the Tahrir Ash-Shyam coalition and the rear base of the militants are located, which supplied their positions in the north-west and north of Hama province.

        It seems to me that most likely they will squeeze the militants from the emerging Latamin boiler towards Khan Sheikhun, threatening the last frontal assault and, as a result, create the need for the militants to defend any valuable Khan Sheikhun, otherwise the boiler and the loss of an important stronghold, the key to Idlib. The situation will develop on the example of the assault on Aleppo.

            Maybe they will try to take it right away, if the city is poorly fortified, but will there be enough strength? If it is not enough, they will try to squeeze in the direction of Khan Sheikhun and only after cleaning the Latamine boiler will Khan Sheikhun take care of himself.

(I do not believe in rumors about Erdogan and Assad’s quarrels, this rumor is a kind of alibi for Erdogan in the West. ) It will be the same with observation posts near Khan Sheikhun.

With 5km + only Su-34 can at least make some selection visually - using an optical station. And then the question is how effective it will be.
            Su-30 / Rooks - according to the eyes of the pilots. With 5km you will see a lot there? Where to drop the bomb?

              Without panic, this has happened more than once. It happens, but the Syrian Air Force is at the same time fighting. In war, you can’t do without losses.
              Official Damascus is actively using these aircraft to strike at militant positions. During the confrontation with the forces of terrorist groups and the international coalition, the Syrian Arab Republic lost 11 vehicles of this type, not counting the cars mentioned in the note.

                And the Rooks (Su-25) and Su-30СМ - now work visually on the ground, that is, with their eyes. To determine with 5km that there is a fortified Babakh point in this house, and then 1,5 truck with an automatic 57mm gun is hidden - it won’t work with 5km eyes. Therefore, you just have to throw in the sector, and there as Allah decides.

                Did you come to the village and? Just drop the 8-16 bombs to hell and go home? So bombing this town will take a very long time. And the siege will drag on, and there Erdogan will again push the truce through Putin. And the Latamine pocket will survive for another year. From where the broads will launch UAVs at Khmemim and unload Grad packages at the Ham base.

                The container is still in operation. Recently, an experienced 902 flew in Zhukovsky. So they still finish it.

    Vacuum bombs must be tested in Idlib, everything goes to this, otherwise these trench rats cannot be withdrawn from there.
    And what does it mean that terrorists have families ... unless their children, when they grow up, become winners of the Nobel Peace Prize ...?

      That's right - pump up the vacuum there, let the demons suffocate. And Solntsepek used there - what do you think?

    With technology in war, this often happens. But the fact that the pilot came to them is very bad. These fanatics can ruin him in vain.

        And their point of view must be eliminated by aviation. Now again, with his participation, the videos will be removed and put on the Internet, as they always do.

          Aviation, Tiger Force Special Forces, and the FSA Army may change their minds.
          Pilot hero.
          God grant that he remained alive and exchanged for some sort of barmaleya.

          The principle is simple - you must praise yourself, scold the enemy.

    If the captive to the Syrian pilot, then not long, if death, then easy.

    I would put the old su 34 there, at least for the oil and gas, at least a squadron there and 12 su34m for myself, or su 30 of the first construction, and for myself su 30cm1.
    They even need a squadron of new aircraft to bomb from a decent height.

      "I would put the old su 34 there at least a squadron on account of oil and gas."
      The only thing left is to find the "old" Su-34s somewhere.
