Reinforcements: SAA deployed additional Msta-B tanks and howitzers to Serakib

Reinforcements: SAA deployed additional Msta-B tanks and howitzers to Serakib

Realizing the complexity of the situation in the region of Serakib, the military command in the SAR decided to urgently transfer additional forces and funds to this sector of the front.


The forces that are currently located in the region of Seraciba and the strategically important road junction of the Aleppo-Damascus and Aleppo-ports of the Mediterranean are not enough to organize a deep defense of the areas previously freed from terrorists. The difficulties are clearly added by the fact that it is on this section that the Turkish armed forces actively support the militants who advanced from Sarmin through Nairab towards the mentioned road junction.

At the moment, a convoy of military equipment from the Syrian government army has approached Serakib, having managed to carry out the transfer before the militants could directly go to the denouement. What equipment will appear at the disposal of those units that hold the defense in this sector of the front? Additional forces include several hundred troops, including those previously located north of Aleppo.

In particular, we are talking about tanks and towed 152-mm howitzers "Msta-B". The maximum range for howitzers of this type is about 29-30 km (depending on the ammunition used). With the use of such weapons, including the use of dense fire, the Syrian government forces can push the militants who had previously captured Nairab in the direction of Sarmin-Idlib.

However, one must not forget that the arsenal of terrorists also has artillery. It is precisely in the last few days that militants have been actively using it to crush the CAA orders and enter Seracib.

          There is an opinion that the kneading near Serakib, where the SAA and the Turkish greens “butt” with varying success, and the liberation of southern Idlibs by the Syrians by leaps and bounds, is the result of a Russian-Turkish agreement. The main forces of the greens are connected under Serakib, the south is relatively bare.
          The Sultan does not lose face, the Syrian territories are liberated, the Barmalei grind in meaningless attacks for them.

          By the way, yes, tanks are an effective type of weapon and they are there, aviation too, and artillery, but where are the effective robots? At least in the role of test? Aren't they effective?

                Yeah. All these territories in the "green" in the south are not worth the loss of such an important transport hub as Serakib. Now the Turks will overrun him with their troops, they will surround them closely with their posts and everything will be very sad.

    Assad’s forces clearly lack the cornet there. The infantry are mostly cheap primitive weapons. Artillery and aviation do not solve everything, they still need to be called, and the moment may pass. And long-range weapons and armored vehicles, and clusters of infantry can instantly work. At barmaley everything on shaitan pipes only keeps.

      do not exaggerate. TOU launches are simply known for their demonstration videos. To which the immature Internet generation is being conducted. In fact, TOUs are effective for the purposes for which they are intended - armored vehicles and fortified firing points. And against infantry there is nothing more effective than artillery in general and mortars in particular.

      What for? There are units of 10 and 6 divisions + NDF + PMCs from the Sokolov Desert.
      The 6th division traded and led the IDB with the broads for 4 years. After a very colorful run in 2015, throwing even personal weapons.
      10th division - was not in serious battles, but played the role of the curfew, it was stretched into blocks.
      Falcons from Palmyra ran to Homs, and even the Marines on T4 could not stop them. Actually after that, they were disbanded in fact.

      In the south - half-empty villages take:
      Al-Quds - a motivated part that can run on machine guns and did it in Aleppo, since the time of liberation. Where the wild losses were. Their tactics are bad. But they can go and die.
      Several groups of Hezbollahs (at least their tweeters write that ours are there in such a village, in such) are the best light infantry in Syria. Motivated, tactically trained and equipped.
      tactical group 4 MD of Maher Assad - they are so-so, but on the background of 10 and 6 they are simply gods, plus they have the T-90 (one of which was presented to the militants recently), the T-72B of 1989 (or even the early B3).
      - Tiger Forces 25th Special Forces Division.
      - Oleg from PMC.

      In the direction of the main blow of the militants, they set up some of the most unstable and poorly equipped units, which they did not even support, in separate normal groups.

      From this there are 2 options:
      - Negotiated. The most obvious interchange of interchanges to the south, while all save face. Erdogan takes a strong position, and since M4 / 5 has already been surrendered, then part of the route, where Turkish posts can also be returned. Assad focuses on 3000km2 freed in Hama and South Aleppo. Putin - secured Khmeimim (UAVs were allowed out of this pocket), well, he did everything he could, and the fact that the sadyka fled is not his fault.

      - The glaring incompetence of those planning an operation. Moreover, it is clear that the allocated forces gathered to run, and not fight, it was already 23-24. For 2 days in those conditions, it was possible to transfer enough forces, even weakening the advancing group, because it is practically without resistance and too powerful for those conditions.

          Well, I didn’t write who. If this is not a tricky plan / agreement, the advisers are to blame and, if good, this should affect their careers. Since they put obviously un motivated and weak parts, without support and reinforcement.

          Pro-government tweeters write that the defending units are demoralized + no command.
          Of curse Saraqib has fallen ... What did you thought was going to happen .... In the last battle of al-Nayrab the forces there made it very clear that they don't want to fight. Saraqib was taken without any real fighting. Why this happened? bad commandership.

          Again, the first serious races were 3 days ago. Even having made a mistake, overestimating one's own strengths, it could be corrected. At those distances, even 1 day is enough.

      It seems like on March 5 the procedure of "restraint" is scheduled. GDP and Edik will play geopolitical chess and will most likely end the game by signing a truce and establishing a new demarcation line. Until then, the SAA will align the front line for another week and utilize the barmalei.

      This is to be expected. Turks are not bearded slippers. Assad cannot be cut with them. And it was clear to everyone. In addition to those who shouted that Erdogan would now get bogged down in Syria and the SAA is laying the hell on everyone there. CAA does not have crutches. And only the Russians can stop the Turks. But no one will dare to stop. And Edik went all-in, realizing that ours weren’t rocking, so he has a chance to chop off a bold piece before meeting with Putin. At this meeting, they will draw a dash on the map along the positions occupied at that time. as it was in the Donbass. This piece will then eventually become Turkish territory. That's how the story goes and the borders are redrawn.

      yes, over the years of the Syrian civilian videos with the defeat of the anti-tank groups of soldiers / fighters there were hundreds, probably.
      in conditions when all operations are carried out by small units with a minimum of equipment, this turned out to be very effective.
      in principle, the loss of such a detachment of 10-15 people could mean the loss of a small village.

    There it came to the point that it was impossible to solve by military force - the rates of both sides to the mountains. The main rivals of the USA - Russia, China, Turkey and Iran are busy with the war (China and Iran are fighting against the coronavirus, and Russia and Turkey are busy with a hybrid). The USA feels more comfortable than ever, plus the coronavirus is growing in Europe - Italy, Spain, the Balkans - from an economic point of view, this is all in the US’s hands.
    Immediately get together and resolve the issue fairly - allocate a safe zone for the people, work on a constitution, unite and see off the United States and its supporters from the oil zone.
