Turkey begins transferring tanks to the border with Greece

Turkey has started the transfer tanks towards the Greek border amid tensions in the Mediterranean. It was reported by the Turkish Ihlas agency.


According to the agency, 40 tanks are being transferred to the border, and two convoys of trucks with them left the Reyhanli region of Hatay province on the border with Syria. After the delivery of the equipment to the railway, the tanks will be loaded onto platforms and delivered to the province of Edirne on the border with Greece. The agency does not report which tanks are being transferred.

However, the state news Anadolu agency denies the transfer of tanks to the Greek border, claiming that the reports of a number of Turkish media outlets were mistaken. In fact, there was a planned redeployment of equipment of the second ground army in Malatya, and tanks were not transferred to the Greek border.

In turn, the Turkish Defense Ministry did not comment on the transfer of equipment.

On the eve of the Turkish military department announced the beginning of military exercises called "Mediterranean Storm". The exercises will start on September 6 and will last until 10. The Turkish Navy, the Air Force and the ground forces will take part in them. The main task of the exercises is to practice the defense of its water area and offensive actions at sea.

Note that relations between Turkey and Greece, and so the former not the best, worsened in early August due to offshore hydrocarbon deposits. Both countries claim these gas deposits, and accuse each other of organizing illegal extraction of raw materials in the disputed area.

      There is an interesting land border along the Maritza River. From the side of Turkey, the lowland is swampy, from the side of Greece the spurs of the Rhodope Mountains. This is, as in Karabakh, Armenians shoot from above, and Azerbaijanis climb up. Therefore, you can stop any armada with small forces, and here you still need to force the river, and not the smallest one. The Rhodope Mountains themselves are very, very. The forecast for Greece is favorable.

      There is parity in the fleet, a commensurate number of frigates and diesel-electric submarines. But in the network of islands for defense, the Greeks have a clear advantage in missile boats, and Greece also has allies, and the Turks traditionally split up with everyone and tens of millions of Kurds in the rear. The prognosis for Turkey is unfavorable, it will be dismembered and destroyed ... as in the prophecies laughing

        There will be no war, but if suddenly. There is no parity in the fleet, the Greeks are very inferior. Parity is only in submarines. The Air Force has close parity, but the Turks are more experienced, and in addition have a huge fleet of combat drones, which the Greeks do not have. the islands for the Greeks are not advantages, but a weakness, especially those close to the main land of Turkey. The first hours they will be captured. And, the army of the Greeks on each island, (about 3000 islands) are separated by the sea, supply is very difficult during the fighting. They are like hostages in the middle by looking at the expanded map, you will understand what it is about. Seriously, the Greeks are also unable to stop the Turkish land army, even under such conditions.

          Beaten by Kurdish guerrillas? With a regular army, the Turks have no experience from the word at all. Drones are only against troglodytes, all drone control centers will be suppressed immediately.

          Complete nonsense. I repeat, rocket boats between the islands are kings. Why keep garrisons on all the islands? Think yourself that you are sculpting ... I decided to capture 3000 islands in turnwassat

          the Turkish land army, too, the Greeks are not able to stop

          Yes, yes, tanks from the swamps of Maritsa and straight to the storming of the Rhodope wassat And on the side of Greece, the enemy's material, both privates and generals, is extremely low in combat qualities. Most of the personnel of the Greek army are now regular military personnel, while the Turks have conscripts. The opportunity to buy off the service fills the Turkish army with stupid farmers. Panic and cowardice are their companions, which is what we see in the footage of how the Kurdish partisans shoot Turkish soldiers like partridges. The entire hereditary caste of military personnel that ruled for a century has been eliminated. Now the generals and officers are represented by random people with loyalty to the prezik. You need to boast after the victory, not before ... Greece's military treaty with Egypt and Israel once. Both NATO countries, but we understand that Turkey is an orphan there. Gulen is in the US, the head of NATO. The French will be ready to smack the Turks, and this is a nuclear advanced power. Well, this Turkey got everyone. Arabs, Jews, Europeans, Armenians, Kurds, Persians cannot stand it. It's time to end her with the whole world. wassat

              My analysis, though not unfounded, but with references to geography and realities after the Turkish coup. Destroyed the generals, so what? Do you expect to win after that? Interrupted the continuity of generations and the type of new rabble will be straight Ushak-Pashami? No, my friend, military science is a complex art and science, therefore it is given to the elect, and not just to whom. Hatred? Not. The neighbors hate ... all the neighbors that the Turks have done wrong. And I just told you that the unfortunate Turkish tanks in the swamps and the Rhodope Mountains are untenable, from the word at all.

                "They interrupted the continuity of generations." And this was the poorest, disarmed, even deserted period of Turkey, torn apart by many years of wars in the Balkans, North Africa and the Middle East. Despite all this, the pack of imperialists did not cope, and this time they will not cope.

                  after a fierce rebuff they fled with their tail pressed

                  Ha, ha! It was just that Ataturk agreed to compromise and subjugated Turkey to the west. And the British and Co. were afraid that the Russians would seize Constantinople first, after the revolution and the need for vassals was no longer needed. Ataturk himself was a Freemason and on the Masonic - Gnostic line knelt down. And the Turks were later made the main cannon fodder in NATO, without providing modern weapons. Do you know, dear man, that the Turkish F-16 cannot even shoot at the Israeli F-16 because of the system of algorithms. Okay, it was on VO, look for it yourself. Therefore, Erdogan climbed to buy the S-400, although we will already turn it off if that wassat Therefore, I am afraid, as with the Greeks, the turmoil will begin, so the Turks will be turned off, like Saddam Hussein. And you need to know how to make your planes, and not buy from the owner. Therefore, the owner will not allow independence.

                    "The Turkish F-16 will not even be able to shoot at the Israeli F-16 because of the system of algorithms." Probably you are not in a heck that these algorithms have been changed, and for a long time. The Russian Federation will be on the side of Turkey, you will see. Nobody canceled life interests. There are already hints, and the S-400 is just the beginning of these hints. The Bolsheviks also supplied the Turks with weapons from these considerations, knowing the intentions of the Anglo-Saxons. There are scrapes among themselves, but in such matters life forces us to be for one thing in order to maintain a balance. And, the Turks have always defended not a weapon or s-400 (disabled as you said) but resilience and ready to die. The mentality of these people can not be replaced by anything. Although they have weapons, they are quite modern in professional hands. Another half of the Turkish army, in fact consists of professional military. Over the past 10 years, they have additionally created 17 Rapid Response Brigades, of very trained specialists. Die hard Turkey. Not to be confused with banana countries. They are children of the Empire, although the country is called the Republic of Turkey.

    The Greeks have already denied themselves. The Turkish agency ihlas lied to aggravate relations. If the Greeks have already denied, then they contacted the Turks through diplomatic channels. And in general, Turkey is ready for negotiations, even without preconditions. There will be no war today. We disagree. drinks
