Military Review

The Pentagon commented on AFRICOM materials “on airplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Libya”

65

A briefing was held at the Pentagon, one of the topics of which was the publication of a photo by the US African Military Command (AFRICOM). We are talking about photographs in which, according to the aforementioned command, the transfer of aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces to Libya is captured. The material on the publication of these photos "Military Review" was presented to its readers on the eve.


During a briefing, US Department of Defense spokesman Jonathan Hoffman, who was asked to comment on AFRICOM data, said he “does not have accurate data on the type and number of funds aviation».

Hoffman said that “all the information” that he possesses and can share with the press is that “we are talking about about 14 Su-24 and MiG-29 aircraft.” At the same time, the Pentagon representative did not call them airplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces, but limited himself to the phrase "Russian-made airplanes."

According to Jonathan Hoffman, "everything must be done to stop the armed conflict in Libya."

Pentagon Spokesperson:

The Libyan people need security, they need protection. He deserves it.

Recall: on the eve of the American General Townsend announced that "Russia no longer makes any sense to hide its participation in the Libyan conflict."

Meanwhile, reports are coming from Libya that Khalifa Haftar’s forces have begun regrouping and preparing to take Misrata’s territory under their control. Representatives of the Libyan National Army said they set themselves the task of taking possession of this territory within 48 hours.

    “We are talking about about 14 Su-24 and MiG-29 aircraft”
    А это вот не понятно..."ПРИМЕРНО", это как? 14,1 или 13, 5? Как можно говорить о "примерности", если США заявляют о жестком контроле? И если это правда, то такая ударная эскадрилья требует много обслуживающего персонала и главное хорошего снабжения горючим, боеприпасами, запчастями... И да, такое количество новых боеготовых самолетов могут сильно изменить равновесии сил в пользу ЛНА

      And yes, such a number of new combat-ready aircraft can greatly change the balance of power in favor of the LAA

      Provided that Turkey will not do anything in return.

        For Turkey, this is a vital matter)) This is not Syria, where Turkey is cautiously doing something.
        I think those who follow the actions of Turkey in Syria and Libya see the difference.

          No, not with anyone. And only in that situation, if competent military will lead this force, if experienced pilots will control the aircraft, if timely supplies of fuel, ammunition, spare parts, if there are experienced aircraft will be organized.
          And this is only the technical side of the issue. There is another one. Turks are not barmalei in slippers. Understanding the threat, they themselves can whom you want to roll up. That is, deliver a preemptive strike, destroying both the aircraft themselves and the infrastructure. Using UAVs, their own deployed aircraft or organizing a lightning-fast breakthrough of ground forces at the air base. So the issue of defense and air defense of the airfield is not in last place

            У Вас сильно много "если", как показала жизнь это не реально. Но есть другая сторона медали, если самолёты не опознаны значит их можно смело сбивать, претензий ни у кого не будет, а сбить их это дело техники, поверьте она есть что, было доказано не раз.

      Apparently based on satellite imagery ...
      But this nonsense repeated after the Turkish and American editions is time to filter. Russia has no urgent need to intervene in yet another civil conflict, especially on the side of an unrecognized administration. And the planes are most likely Egyptian. They have both the MiG-29 and the Su-24. They could have bought the UAE for the Hawtor in the secondary market, together with the pilots. But judging by the speed of reaction (such a rapid appearance on the theater), it is still Egypt - it is nearby.
      Moreover, Egypt officially threatened to intervene in the conflict if the Turks did not get out of Libya and did not stop the supply of militants and weapons.
      And drowned the ships, too, threatened.
      And he conducted the corresponding exercises.

        And I repeat, according to the technique, it’s not even KAMAZ with Shell that scorch, but Msta-B. Which were not supplied abroad (with the exception of Iraq - but it will not even cope with the need for the UAE in the same clearing, everything is very tense there and in Syria).

          I didn’t quite understand something from the photo and video. I suppose, too, is inclined to believe that Russian PMCs may well fight in Libya, but do you consider this evidence? How to determine from the video that it is Libya, not Syria? Tigers were shipped to the UAE and Jordan, where did you get the idea that you couldn’t give them to Haftar if the UAE transferred them to the Shell-S1 ZRPK? MSTA-B could well have been transmitted by the LNA for a long time, this is not Iskander, which would be exploited exclusively by our specialists.

            These are not ordinary tigers. Look carefully, these are the brand new VPK-233136 Tiger in a 5-door version, with various options. Only Uzbekistan has such.



            Also the Urals, this is a very small batch from the Urals in a special version. They only glowed in Syria and are very limited.

            The shell-S in the UAE is only on the MAN chassis.

            Msta-B is not for sale. Only in exceptional cases (Iraq). Algeria eventually bought Chinese guns for example.

      in Syria, the goal of states (globalists - not Trump) is to freeze the conflict. Give the Shiite beasts the Sunni lands and tear the Turks from Sunni Arabia.
      In Libya, the goal is eternal war.
      And something tells me that it was the states that asked Russia to enter Syria and Libya in order to save Assad (on the one hand, which they did - now the eternal war and the Shiite belt in the Sunni lands), and on the other Haftar - also the eternal war.

      And yes, another plus of the war in Syria and Libya is the emigrants for Europe. Labor resources.

    Libya is not Syria)) Here Turkey will not be so scared to carry politics) This can be seen by the way it leads it) Destroys everything)
    Russia in vain enters Libya.
    Firstly, a Muslim country. Sunnis hate the Russian Federation. And they will hate even more. Although this is the norm for the Russian Federation))
    Secondly, to fight on the side of a general unrecognized by anyone. The same as fighting on the side of ISIS)
    Thirdly, if the war is not won, then the recognized government, and this is the PNS, will drag the Russian Federation through the courts. To confirm your words, you can bring as an example the Yukos case. Read the latest news)) Russian assets around the world are being arrested, and Russia cannot do anything with it!
    Fourth, a question. Where is the cannon fodder?)) In Syria, there is Iran, which is fighting on the ground. Who will fight in Libya on earth?)) Nobody. And yes, the Egyptians are definitely not. Sisi, sitting on a powder keg (the economy of Egypt is in full .. hmm. The people hate him. Just like the Jews of the SS troops).
    Fifth. Neither side is fighting for Haftar. Help - YES, provide. But do not fight.

            I'm muslim. And I have dozens of Russian friends. And personal relations have nothing to do with it. The Russian Federation as a state, as a society, has always been an enemy of Muslims. It is a fact!

              In my opinion you have drunk. In the Russian Federation 21 million Muslims live. The Russian Federation has never been an enemy of Muslims. You disgrace all Muslims now. They will think that you are a fool who is engaged in provocation.

                You know, in the USSR, I probably would have thought so, but now ...
                Everything is open, every patriot of his people can and most importantly reads the history of his small homeland. Tell me. Who are the national heroes of the Dagestanis?) 95% all died fighting for their land against Russia.
                100% of Chechen national heroes died at the hands of Russia!
                These are the facts. You can’t hide history in the 21st century))
                Go to the Dagestan and Chechen publics, the group’s pages on social networks, and see what they write)
                I am not talking about Circassians - Circassians ... There was genocide over them. Here is Sochi for example. Whose land is this?) And where is the indigenous population?))

                  On the question of Sochi ... a very multi-ethnic city .... and multi-religious ... and we live here we are all fine ....
                  And the fact that you mumble about the indigenous population, so ask your Turks friends about this .... why did they deceive and genocide the entire Ubykh people ....
                  И сразу говорю, не надо мне расказывать что убыхи прятались от России в Турции....прежде чем начать "прятаться", что они творили, почитай.....а потом найди слова Ермолова , когда он обращался к ним.....и что обещала Турция, вывозя убыхов на своих военных кораблях....

              Wow, how interesting! Can you pull up the fact (s), Muslim?
              Just remember when you pull up that any ambiguity, omission, sarcasm, cunning and any other form of deception is rejected by Islam. A sincere Muslim will not even lie in jest. “I promise a house in the midst of Paradise to someone who avoids lying even as a joke,” said the prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and welcome him.

              Therefore, several tens of millions of Sunnis live in Russia, who also serve in the army, fight in Syria, fought in Chechnya, and often heroically.

              Or can it remind you how many Muslims are in the State Duma?
              In the government?
              In the office of the President?
              About Nabiulina - who is she?
              About the Chechen guys from the military police who worked and continue in Syria?
              About those Chechens who came to our aid in the Donbass in 2014 \ 2015 have come?
              And they fought with us.
              We are Russians, we do not judge a person and a nation by faith, but by deeds.
              What would Syria be without Russia now?
              И Египет поддержали , когда Сиси с военными шайтанов "братьев мусульман" сверг и под щконку загнал .
              Or recall how many Muslims are among the big businessmen in Russia?
              Or maybe you’ll find / show at least one Muslim in Russia, who have been infringed on for faith?
              There are many faiths in Russia, and Muslims are the second largest community, after the Orthodox. And no one is offended.

        And yes, the terrorists are primarily fighters of PMC Wagner) I think you will not argue with this?)
        And yet, on the side of Haftar, the Wahhabis are fighting and there are many of them. They are the main force) In Syria against terrorists, in Libya for))

        Do not worry. Your Turks with terrorists will put in place in Libya. Because nefig climb into a foreign country without demand.

        And who will put them in their place? Do you see any real power there? Turks in Libya - the only ones who sent regular troops, no one else has been honored. Fighting against them will not be easy. Haftar? Do not tell, he could not cope with the Tripolitans without the Turks, and now even more so. If the Turks hit it well, then Haftar will sprinkle. Although, already ... He will be saved only by real support from other serious players. But no one really hurries to fit in especially.

      Firstly, a Muslim country. Sunnis hate the Russian Federation. And they will hate even more.

      I recall that 80% of Afghans are Sunnis. 60% of Iraqis are Shiites, 85% of Serbia are Orthodox. But something Americans did not stop the fear of such anger.
      Secondly, to fight on the side of a general unrecognized by anyone. The same as fighting on the side of ISIS)

      what an interesting logic laughing And the fact that the Americans support the unrecognized SAA and PKK, declared terrorist organizations by some countries - how is it?
      and this is the PNS, drags the Russian Federation in the courts.

      Something is not visible to international courts obliging the United States to pay compensation for supporting Nicaraguan contra, Afghan mujahideen, Syrian militants, etc.

    According to Jonathan Hoffman, "everything must be done to stop the armed conflict in Libya."

    Pentagon Spokesperson:

    The Libyan people need security, they need protection. He deserves it.

    It can be assumed that the African command of the United States AFRICOM chatted too much. By the way, Turkey has already accused the United States that, with the support of the PNS Sarajah in words, the United States is actually providing military support to Haftar. And somehow I do not believe that the long-standing CIA officer Haftar turned to Moscow for military support without the approval of his bosses from Langley.
