Messages from Syria: Russian Aerospace Forces conduct an operation against ISIS militants using BetAB-500 aerial bombs

34

There are reports from Syria that Russian warplanes are conducting an operation to strike at the positions and infrastructure of the militants of the so-called "Islamic State" (* a terrorist group is banned in the Russian Federation).


The most massive bombing of the terrorist infrastructure is carried out in the province of Homs. In this area, a few days ago, ISIS members carried out an attack on a convoy, in which there was also a car of the Red Crescent organization. In the same area, terrorists attacked a Syrian convoy. At the same time, several Syrian soldiers went missing. ISIS fighters themselves have issued a statement saying that SAA soldiers have been captured and transferred to Deir ez-Zor province. In this province, there remains a small zone of control of the ISIS, who carry out attacks and sabotage.

According to the latest information, the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces use concrete-piercing bombs. We are talking about BetAB-500, capable of penetrating more than 3 meters of soil or about 1 m of concrete. The use of such aviation ammunition is due to the fact that the main infrastructure of ISIS fighters * in eastern Syria is underground. Those of the terrorists who survived the earlier operation against them, for a long time created shelters, in some of which stocks of medicines, food, weapons and ammunition. At the same time, the main supplies, as previously reported by the Syrian intelligence, are carried out through the areas of the Syrian-Iraqi border uncontrolled by the CAA.

Areas of ISIS control are marked in gray *


Meanwhile, local information resources write that the Russian military has suspended the operation of the crossing (bridge) across the Euphrates to the east of Deir ez-Zor. The reasons are not reported at the moment.

Official data on the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces against ISIS * terrorists in Syria has not been reported from the military department for the current minute. At the same time, it is known that the zone of ISIS control in another Syrian province - Hama - was significantly reduced precisely after a number of operations carried out by Russian military aviation.

    It is also necessary not to substitute our pilots, it's time to change tactics. Hang a couple of Orions over the area and let them track the barmaley for days, and when necessary, you can strike from the same Orion

        And he does not need to throw BetAB (s) at the machines of the barmaley, he will accurately lay such, especially if they are guarding the column on the surface in ambush:
        KAB-20 or the Kh-50 small-sized aircraft guided missile, the UPAB-50 gliding bomb with the Grad MLRS warhead, the KAB-50 adjustable small-sized aviation bomb with the Grad MLRS warhead. By the way, KAB-50 comes in three versions: with laser, television and thermal imaging guidance systems.

      and what is the setup if bombing and the use of missile launchers is carried out from heights that are inaccessible to MANPADS?

      Is Orion capable of breaking through the concrete vault of a fortified bunker with a guided missile? Or do you think that BetAB-500 is being used against martyrs?

              yeah? Do you know that lying to a person in the subject is simply stupid? A simple order to ban single flights of ground attack and bomber aircraft without escort cover turns your words into stupidity.
              How many of the same Orions are in service with the Russian Aerospace Forces?

              what does the Orions have to do with it? Do you think that the UAV is the only way to reduce losses? By the way, this has nothing to do with the events of the 15th. Because on the one hand, it featured the slackness of the headquarters of the Russian group in general and the leadership of the Aerospace Forces in particular, because the Turks gave signals of their readiness to use weapons more than once shortly before the event. On the other hand, the Turkish action itself was not connected with simple border protection and had the character of a direct provocation.

              you just belong to the Bayraktar sectarians and others like them. To those who believe that UAVs are winning wars. Not understanding, no matter how powerful and beautiful the pistol is, it is intended only for local operations.

                No, I don't, but I think that most of the work could have been performed by robotic systems, which of course will lead to a change in tactics and strategy in general. How many Americans died in Syria, let's count? Or in the same Afghanistan. I do not belittle the heroism of our fighters, we refer purely to the facts.

                  How many Americans died in Syria, let's count?

                  the Americans initially used the tactics of using HC from safe heights. They did not quarrel with the Turks over the controlled Basmachi. They practically do not participate in ground operations. Therefore, the losses are minimal. We climbed with assault aircraft from low altitudes + hammered a bolt on the gathering clouds in the history of the bombing of Turkoman villages. So we got it.
                  Or in the same Afghanistan

                  Well, these are not comparable operations at all. If we compare it with the OGSVA, then both the size of the contingent and the tasks and the size of the opposing side are completely different. Compared to the military contingent of Russian troops in Syria, in Afghanistan the Americans have a much higher casualty rate than we do.

                      compare, even to the point of loss of pulse. The losses of the Americans (excluding the forces of other countries of the coalition) - 2356 people over 13 years. The Russian Armed Forces in Syria have lost 117 people in 6 years. Can you compare the two numbers yourself?
                      Americans for any rustle send AH-64 Apache or link F-16, and then only understand what is happening.

                      that is, according to your theory, they do not take care of the pilots laughing you contradict yourself, tk. helicopters are essentially assault aviation with all its risks. And in your fashion theory, Americans should have used exclusively drones. laughing Yes, there is such a pity - the Americans are not fans of your fashionable nonsense and their UAVs account for only 2% of USAF sorties.

      In the photo with a powder booster is a bomb. As I understand it, this is BetAB-500SH (n). This is an assault version and as far as I know, a maximum of them can be used from an altitude of 1000 m. It is unlikely that they are used there, rather just BetAB-500 from great heights.

It is clear where the ears grow from if the bearded ones are under the wing of the United States. I will not give a photo of the late McCain with the bearded ones.

    Americans still have a lot to learn from the RF Aerospace Forces.
    Staffers with their high-precision weapons, no matter how they shoot somewhere, then to school, then to the hospital, then to the market, well, at best, they will get into a wedding.
    And the pilots of the Aerospace Forces, ordinary cast iron, from the heights of inaccessible MANPADS, hit the bandits like a squirrel - right in the eye! Even the skins do not spoil. Keep it up! good

    One thing can be said for sure: very little is bombed. Therefore, terrorists and multiply like bedbugs. It's time to give a damn about the cries of the West about the barbaric bombing and finish off the terrorists, better together with their patrons there.
