On satellite images of Planet Labs, new images of Su-24 front-line bombers in Libya have appeared. The American press comments on these pictures. These photos are dated July 13th. Bombers along with other combat aircraft are located at Al-Jufrah airbase.


Military expert Joseph Trevitik of The War Zone writes that the presence of the Su-24 outside special fortified aircraft hangars suggests that these bombers are used by the forces of Marshal Khalifa Haftar.

In the United States, commenting on the pictures, they say that the use of front-line bombers indicates "strengthening aviation component in the Libyan armed conflict. "

Earlier, the US African military command stated that Russia allegedly transferred several Su-24s, MiG-29s and even MiG-23s to Libya from the Khmeimim air base in Syria, where the planes were “repainted” before.

The American media writes that "Russian combat aircraft act as a deterrent to the Turkish military presence in Libya."

Recall that the forces of the government of national accord of Libya, supported by Ankara, a few weeks ago stopped on the line Sirte-Al-Jufra after a long successful advance. One of the factors of the suspension of advancement to the east of Libya was the position of neighboring Egypt, whose president threatened to force the PNS to bring an army into Libya if they crossed the mentioned line in the Sirte region.

    Nothing terrible, the Americans are also "throwing" planes to Israel, and they are painting their star on them, well, and they are gangsters at them, so everything is fine; and it’s simply not possible to work out the gas and rob Jews from the very beginning. First you need to hang Haftar, by the hands of Erdogan, but his head costs a lot of money and this is a long story

        “Easy access ... do you know your last name?” Easy-access, that is, light, one might say, airy ... You wrote what ?! Vest through the letter “and”, overcoat through the letter “e”, and shoes in general! You listen to me, Easy Walk. There are words in Russian, there are many of them. When you compose them together, you get a sentence where there is a predicate, subject and other chiaroscuro. And all this is the great Russian language, Easy access. You understood me?!
        “Yes, comrade commander!”
        - So, we have a great Russian language! In it, rearrange the pronoun, the predicate and the subject, and the intonation will appear: "Our Masha is crying bitterly," or "Our Masha is crying bitterly." You understand?! This is poetry! Well it’s epics, Mamkina’s mink !! .. But there are generally sentences in one word: “Drizzle”, “Evening”, “It's getting dark” ... Do you feel?
        “Yes, comrade commander!”
        “You don't feel a damn thing!” When I read what you wrote, I itch in the most immodest places! Immediately you can break a member until you reach the end of the paragraph! Who taught you?
        - At school.
        - Show me, and I will tear it, like a tazik heating pad.
        - I say - at school.
        - And am I, whether I’ve studied abroad, Easy-access ?!
        “If it were so for me at school! .. It is intelligible! .. I would ...”
        - It’s free ...

      finding the Su-24 outside special fortified hangars

      The photo shows two Su-24Ms, each of which is located next to its caponier, and not in a common parking lot or central lock.

      When generals and other officers are massively repressed, it is naive to expect serious success from such an army.

      Erdogan’s entire will is enough to remake Sofia in a mosque. He recouped, so to speak, on a religious minority. And the rest, Erdogan’s “will” is weak attempts at the Ataturk laurels.

    Again stupid with the MiG-23, from which air base Khmeimim, Russia could transfer this glorious plane, and even repainted.
    Military expert Joseph also says something awkward.

      We rumored that they could not scrape together the MiG-23/27 regiment for the second Chechen, now where is it from?

        The Air Force command decided to urgently return the MiG-27 to service and deploy them in Chechnya. However, the reports from the storage bases sounded pessimistic: if they learned how to deal with cutting equipment there, then there were no forces or specialists to restore the dismantled machines. The Mikoyanovtsy brigade sent to bases led by A.S. Popov assessed the state of the MiG-27 as completely unsatisfactory. The glazing of the lanterns became cloudy, the tanks and fuel fittings lost their tightness, many details, including chassis units and wing joints, were corroded, even the skin lost its smoothness and became rough. There was a case of the destruction of the landing gear on the rotary assembly directly in the parking lot - the support simply rusted to the end due to "ingress of moisture and complete corrosion damage."

        That's right .... "thank you" .. Since 1993, the Commander-in-Chief P.S.Deynekin began to "pull" the regiments, and the decree of the President of the Russian Federation of July 16, 1997 (decree on "death") set the final "point" in the reform. IBA) am
        Although the base in Rovenki was ... like dirt, in the Barrens in Lipetsk ... the entire second lane was clogged ... there were also flying. This was cut in Chebenki right away crying
        They flew in Lebyazhka until the age of 97 ... and the sailors in Olenya until almost 96 ... and they were in storage ... hell even knows how much.
        They tested the MiG-27M in LIIyah ... well, they flew in Lipetsk and in the GLYTS soldier

    Of course it’s absolutely true, MiG 23/27 could only scrape together Egypt or another African / Middle Eastern state where Soviet equipment was delivered

      Here I also think why you constantly lie! And besides, you don’t know geography. Closer than Khmeimim there is Egypt, Algeria and others, where you can fully borrow the desired MiG-23, and Su-24. Above you were told there are no MiG-23s suitable for deliveries. We can give exactly unless MiG-29. Contact Putin if you need a couple of links, just repair and purchase spare parts at your expense ...

    And instant 23 took straight from museum shelves, then it should be like that Russia transferred instant 23, regiment 16, at 2, and a tank mounted corps with bt 5 in service

    Why do they need I-16? Su-6 and IL-2 would work for them on the ground wassat
