In Chinese Sohu, approaches to US military bases in Iraq were called the “passage yard”


Installation, with which they fired at the American base



The Chinese portal Sohu presents an attempt to analyze the situation with missile attacks on US military bases in Iraq.

The author recalls that several days ago, as a result of shelling the Taji base, the American and British contingents suffered losses - three servicemen were killed and over 10 were wounded.

The Chinese author writes that this is far from the first attack by American military bases, noting that with each new attack the American contingent is facing ever greater damage, including the damage mentioned in manpower.

From the article:

The previous rocket attacks on the militants took place mainly at night: during the night hunt, the militants were able to stealthily and quickly approach the object for attack and also secretly and quickly leave the firing position. But in this attack, the militants did the opposite, choosing a different time of day. A good review allowed them to inflict significant damage, which showed the extreme pathology of all defense systems of American bases.

The author writes that the “extreme pathology” was found not only in the air defense system of the American military facility, but also in the security system of the quarters adjacent to the facility. It is noted that the militants were once again able to approach the base at the distance they needed along with the launchers, launch at least 18 missiles and quickly escape.

The author calls the approaches to the American military facilities in Iraq "a crowd area", which in the Russian interpretation sounds like a "passage yard".

From the material:
It went not only to ordinary buildings, but also to the underground headquarters. Explosions spread the roofs of concrete structures. Missiles missed a hole not only in the missile defense system of the base, but also in the American military image.

    That's exactly what this is an “attempt to analyze.” But, unfortunately, the ideal “perimeter” has not yet been invented. One can recall the regular shelling of our bases in Afghanistan. And then we had the most powerful army in the world!

    In Afghanistan, for example, there were no drones.

    The American fighters, called the "US Army," were beaten little. A bomb would have blown on them, or some sort of cruise missile accidentally got lost in the sky and covered them!

    And he always said that the US military budget should be equal to debt. I.e. There is candy, but for it you have to pay an astronomical amount. Or withdraw their bases where the Russian defense mines do not like

    Purely from an artillery point of view, an originally camouflaged disposable missile launcher can very close to the base. It’s just that it’s very large, this base and to hit it with serious damage - you need more launchers ... 5-6 cars And you need to choose the right moment. Morning divorce, for example ...

      Alternatively, you can use ATGM following the example of Cornet-EM.
      maximum range reaches 10 meters, and armor penetration - 000 millimeters. In addition to cumulative, there are also options with HE and thermobaric warheads.

      Available sighting equipment allows the use of weapons both day and night, and in addition to objects on the ground, also hit air targets.
      Recall that two years ago in Syria in the Idlib region, a car was destroyed in which there were militants of one of the terrorist groups. It was reported that a missile launched by government forces and flew over 7 m hit the vehicle. Military experts believe that this version of the Cornet was tested in real conditions.

    And the Pentagon today decided to urgently transfer the "patriots" to Iraq to protect its bases. And that I will make them "patriots", against such a simple but effective tactics of real patriots.

      Intercept the Iranian BR. And air strikes will be used against shelling. A month of intense bombing and shabmha will end. Iran runs out of money - so the coronavirus bites them.

        Something bad happened to intercept the Iranian BR from Patriot when they hit the American air base in Iraq Al-Assad.
        And they will use airstrikes against shelling.

        Iran can deploy a Khordad-15 medium-range air defense system in Iraq to protect it from aviation.
        Iran runs out of money - so the coronavirus bites them.

        Come on.

    How does the Chinese portal know what kind of air defense systems there were at the base and were there at all?

          "I could buy up the whole Arkanar. But I'm not interested in the garbage."
          What for us to fight with the USA? They have enough war with the whole Middle East, by the way, already lost in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, and trade wars with the whole world - from Mexico with Canada - and to Europe, through China

          Is this an argument that the Americans actually have effective air defense, and the Chinese are wrong?

            Why weak? This is a logical question. If the US does not have air defense, why Iran will not destroy them after the elimination of its second person in the state ???

              Because weakly.
              Because there are victims. And you can spit feces a thousand times in the direction of the Chinese and opponents, but this fact can not be changed.

            Nobody feeds the losers, all the way around. The French Republic paid for the unification of Germany and the rise of German industry. I want the United States, which lost the war to us in the Middle East, to transfer 2 million dollars to each Russian, or some shame, the winners live like homeless people ....

    "Beat" the Americans little by little, the Americans came to the war - why be surprised?
