Experts: Syrian Airborne landing would help SAA block arms traffic from Turkey


In the military expert community, a judgment has been made as to how Idlib province could have come under the full control of the Syrian government army a few months ago. Recall that at the moment in this province, stubborn battles continue between the SAA and the militants of various groups, including those actively supported by Ankara. In addition, Turkey in recent weeks has increased the supply of equipment to Idlib, weapons and ammunition, carried out the transfer of special forces, citing the fact that all this is necessary for the security of service at observation posts.


Experts note that the Syrian army could solve the problem with militant groups in Idlib, if at one time it took up the formation of airborne forces. This is a hypothetical Syrian version of the Airborne Forces.

So, it is stated that the landing could take control of those sections of the Syrian-Turkish border on the Idlib direction through which arms traffic is carried out and which militants often use for cross-border crossing. First of all, we are talking about the Reyhanli (Turkey) - Sarmada - Idlib highway, through which Turkey carries out the transfer of the main number of forces and assets to the Syrian province. The border area on the map is marked with a yellowish oval.


It is also noted that the landing could be carried out in the border region of Harim and Allani in northwestern Syria. At the same time, it is said that through Aleppo province, supplies from Turkey are actually difficult right now, since there important areas are already under the control of the CAA.

This could put the Turkish side in a difficult position and substantially impede arms traffic. But at the same time questions arise.

Even if the SAA command prepared a sufficient number of airborne troops in a relatively short time, and even against the background of the ongoing war and the lack of personnel at the fronts, then by what means aviation would a transfer be carried out? Use Russian IL-76? Then Ankara will proclaim a "violation of the Sochi memorandum" ...

The question also is: wouldn’t the landed paratroopers in the rear of the militants on the border with Turkey be an easy target for Turkish artillery and aircraft, which could strike without crossing the cordon? It is likely that they would. Unless, of course, by landing in the same border section of Reyhanly-Sarmad does not mean landing of armored vehicles along with crews to hold positions and strike militants in the rear. But in this case, the question of transport aviation again arises.

    If only ...
    The landing operation is the most difficult planning.
    How to land a landing in the presence of air defense?
    How to supply troops and take out the wounded?
    The landing of such barmaleami, with the help of the Turks, will be completely destroyed. On time!
    Give them the airborne! Not everyone knows how to really fight, but here at once the very best are at the root!

      Syrian landing on the border with Turkey - suicide bombers.
      Only option with a demonstration of the Russian flag. Moreover, if without agreement with Erdogan, then this is a risky game in the bank, worse than Pristina.

        Syrian Airborne? Well, nonsense.
        Why not just a Space Marine?

          Well, once upon a time, Syria had well-trained paratroopers, who, at one time, pretty much drank the blood of the Israelis.

            Any troops are trained people, equipment and supplies.
            If the Syrians find people for the airborne forces, Russia will help with security, then where to get the delivery vehicles?
            Even if, contrary to the agreements, Russia will give it, the Airborne Forces will become the No. 1 target for Israeli terrorist attacks.

              The terrorists have MANPADS. Yesterday, the network posted footage about the launch of such a rocket from the roof of the building on the very same Mi-17 helicopter (previously there were suggestions that the Turks were shot down from the F-16th.). So all these dreams of a grandmother with male genitals (a joke of Vladimir Putin) will remain dreams. There is no technical possibility there. Parachute landing looks like complete nonsense, and helicopter landing ... so where to get so many, while they will be shot down for the most part only trying to drop to at least 2,5 - 3 km.
              It is necessary to do what is being done - to crush the Barmalei with a wide front in order to free as much territory as possible before the next (possible) armistice, using artillery and heavy (already tightened) MLRS. Syrians in their right in their own land, and such a right is confirmed only by force.

    The author’s fantasy has no boundaries - there are no airborne forces, there are no means of transfer, nonexistent paratroopers can be destroyed by Turkish artillery. Such information is popularly called a fairy tale! wassat

    In Syria - and with motorized riflemen, they are not sane, apparently. Four years of the Russian Federation and Iran helped to cook.
    And they are about airborne ... Neither appropriate technology, nor training.
    Second: even if there was at least a battalion, not only the barmalei would mate with them, the Turks would immediately catch up. Not even a gamble, outright suicide.

          Turkey is on our side, it’s just information pressure and forced casualties from the side of the SAA, more likely in some cases even improvised. Otherwise, the militants will not accept the Turks, even you believed.

    This is about hypothetical Syrian version of the airborne.
    Does it make sense to talk about hypothetical options? No, so you should not overflow from empty to empty, all the more so since history has no subjunctive mood.

      Well, to be honest, there has already been a landing in Syria. Not so large-scale, although successful. With Suheil.

        alternatively, a helicopter landing would be effective now near the city of Gubtan al-Jabal, from the territory of the Kurds, to make the premises for a boiler in the north of Aleppo. the base of the 45th regiment has just been taken with the Turks inside.

    They do not run for an expert, they do not issue a diploma. Therefore, their anonymous experts divorced. And to land not to strike but to block the road. How long would an idlib hold out without supplies and how much would an airborne landing without him be surrounded ?!

    It is more realistic to bury the Bosphorus with sapper blades of the SAA than to carry out a landing operation by forces and means of the Syrian army.

    You can do without the airborne. Partisans! Have you heard about these? I understand that there are no forests in Syria, but in Ukraine there were also steppe partisans in the Second World War. There is no forest in Afghanistan either, but the notorious Ahmad Shah Masood was interested in the experience of Kovpak. Preparing a paratrooper is long and expensive. But to prepare a saboteur for the abandonment and organization of a partisan detachment is quite possible.

    Actually, this is a typical combat mission for a helicopter landing. Which IL-76? What, nafig, parachute landing? To do this, you need to have a school.
    CAA has almost no helicopters. And those that are, their pilots, are definitely not ready for air assault operations.
    Well, indeed: Turkish artillery would have nobly frolic as much as it did not yell through diplomatic channels. As a result, this landing would be surrounded and defeated by militants.
