        and if you think about it, if for several years at the air base, the reason has not been eliminated, but you just need to destroy the customer and it doesn’t matter where he sits in Washington, Istanbul or air-riad

    5 km. Not close to the base? The next time they can smell rockets from a distance a little larger.

        You probably did not quite understand me. They were able to fly to a distance from which they could use strike weapons. Next time, for example, they fly up to a distance of 10 km and launch air-to-surface missiles.

      It will be problematic to shoot video for 5 km on the phone. And staging video for hell is not necessary

          Yeah, especially for you. They are there at Khmeimim just thinking about how to provide some kind of "hydrograph" video.

      Shooting the Shell on the net is full. And to remove a trifle flying at an altitude with a telephone and its destruction is possible only with special equipment, which neither the Russian military nor the militants have.

      So what of what you have not seen? Why didn't you order a shoot? Or they themselves did not sit down at night 5 km from the base with a mobile phone.

    Yes!!! Small, inconspicuous, but with a well-organized air defense system, they’re beaten again!

      Barmalei are not so stupid that they make all launches from one point all the time. Launched and quickly faded.
