Message alerting the Saudi armed forces came against the background of the impending invasion of the Western coalition in Syria. Earlier Riyadh declared its support for Washington in a military operation against the forces of Bashar al-Assad.


The Saudi Ground Forces Command Center has ordered units to continuously report on their alert status, Arab media reported. In total, the armed forces of the Middle East kingdom serve 142 thousand soldiers and officers. However, ground forces, numbering 80 thousand people, are the main and most numerous type of armed forces in the country. In service with the Arabian infantry is more than 1 thousand. tanks, 400 mortars, 170 self-propelled artillery systems, 900 Shahin anti-aircraft missile systems, as well as American-made Stinger and Red Eye man-portable air defense systems.

A statement about the possible invasion of Saudi Arabia into Syria was made by the Jordanian authorities. “The Hashemite Kingdom will not become a springboard for the Western forces,” said Jordan’s Information Minister Mohammed Mani.

Saudi Arabia may come out in coalition with the United States, Britain, Turkey and Japan, which has recently announced its “concern” about the exacerbation of the situation in Syria.

The Americans promised to launch the first rocket attacks on the country on Thursday, using unconfirmed official information on the use of chemical weapons as a pretext. weapons army of Bashar al-Assad. Yesterday, UN specialists took chemical analyzes from the site of the alleged chemical explosion. However, no results of the investigation yet.

Turkey has declared its readiness to join any coalition that will launch an invasion of Syria. The Turkish army has already placed powerful rocket batteries on its southern border, the newspaper Zaman said. Troops and armored vehicles have also been pulled to Hatay province, the newspaper notes.

        Georgians were also armed with tomatoes. Only there was no sense. The Syrians will fight for their land, and these monkeys (pictured) will only pose, until the first receipt of the Lyuli. Interestingly, Assad has our MLRS "Smerch" or "Tornado"? That would smudge them on the Turks, on their clusters, in the first minutes after the start of the mess. And another question, why did our people put "Tochka-U" in Armenia, they said that the Turkish Patriots should be covered.

            And 1000 tanks? Not a joke ... Amer and European Union (Europeans and Jews) in Syria will not poke around. The ground operation will be carried out precisely by the forces of the Saudis and Turks. Well, bandos, of course. Turks at the same time will cleanse the Kurds forever, the Saudis are not independent - they will order and go, they are bandos bandos ...

      "The Jordanian authorities have made a statement regarding the possible invasion of Saudi Arabia into Syria." The Hashemite Kingdom will not become a springboard for Western forces, "said Jordanian Information Minister Mohammad Mani. - and now this fucking kingdom is not a bridgehead?
      Arab media reports "deployment along the entire 370 km border with Syria" of Jordanian and American troops.

      The Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai refers to a Jordanian commander who said: "For several months we have been preparing for this scenario. I was tasked with preparing Jordanian and American units."

      Al-Rai also refers to the testimonies of local residents who say that in the area of ​​the city of Ramta, a military fist of several thousand soldiers and dozens of tanks is concentrated.

      Ramta is located just a few kilometers from Deraa, the capital of the province of the same name in Syria.

      Sky News Arabia reports that despite official statements of non-intervention in Syria, Jordan is preparing for a possible neutralization of Syrian chemical weapons and terrorist groups in Syrian territory.

      An anonymous source Sky News Arabia reports that Jordanian troops have been preparing for an operation under conditions identical to those of Syria for several months. The purpose of the ground operation may be to create a "buffer zone" in Deraa.

      Some Arab sources argue that, contrary to official statements by Washington about the "limited" nature of the impending operation against Syria, this is more than a Tomahawk strike on Damascus and surrounding military bases.

      Allegedly, two tank groups are concentrated on the border with Syria - one Jordanian and one Saudi. Also, 3 militants of the Syrian Free Army were deployed to the border, which were trained by CIA instructors over the past few months.

      The purpose of the invasion will be not only the creation of a "buffer zone", but also the proclamation of an interim government in the "liberated territory" and the creation of an immediate threat to Damascus - in cooperation with the Islamist groups operating there. You can read more about this in the article "Plan for the land invasion of Syria".

      Patriot batteries are placed along the border with Syria - in the event of a possible Syrian retaliatory strike.

      It is also reported on the possibility of using air bases and radar stations in northern Jordan, in the event of an attack on Syria.

      Jordanian media, citing German sources, also write about the deployment of a combat group along the Syrian border. It is also reported that a large number of military aircraft and drones are being flown to northern Jordan.

        There probably will not show anything. Zarin OV is not resistant. In the heat, it breaks up after a few hours. They definitely will not find traces of sarin, unless the components, provided that the chemical munition was binary.

            China will not enter. He has his own interests, quite sharply different from the interests of Russia.
            Russian intervention in Syria is unlikely, but possible, to show muscle.
            In this case, Israel will not create a security zone. What for? The situation will be concentrated domestically, militants will actively partisan.
            Israel will do something only in case of serious attacks on its territory or the threat of the transfer of any serious weapons to militants or Iranians

      Are you in kindergarten? The usual pattern is coalition formation. Russia should also form distinctive alliances with strong countries, and not the circus that exists now that Belarus is engaged in direct blackmail, Venezuela with Russia until the next loan, etc.
      Politics is not a kindergarten. The task is not to fight, but to achieve the goal with minimal losses. For this, they form coalitions.

              Russia conducts a policy proceeding from the principle: "Oh, these marginals and quarreling with the United States, it means our friends. So what if they have no money - we will give a loan. So what if they betray us at the first opportunity - Nothing that they are not really capable of offering us anything. Nothing that by seeking friendship with one such country, we spoil relations with a dozen others. " And in the end, it turns out - Russia has lost almost completely its positions in Africa and the Arab world, is losing in India, actively losing in Latin America and the Middle East. In Asia. Everywhere.

              I once worked with Israeli settlers. They tell me: "We do not understand the Russians. For example, the Americans keep in touch with the Palestinians, and with us, and there is an exchange of useful information in the kulahuars. The Russians completely ignore contacts. This is strange." And more bizarre, given the community's support for settlers and their influence. And why? The legacy of Soviet diplomacy.

                    Agree, this is the only complaint to them. Take, for example, the Saudis. No democracy, harsh suppression of any dissent, is recognized at the official level that terrorist groups control. However, they are absolutely shaking hands, because they do not rock the boat against the Americans.

                      No. For example, hostage-taking, open sponsorship of terrorist organizations, violation of obligations, attempts to assassinate leaders of neighboring countries, and most importantly, demonstratively rude and boorish behavior.

    Well men, you’re wrong, the Saudis have quite powerful modern air forces:
    In their composition:
    83 fighter Boeing F-15C Eagle (18 in a two-seat combat training modification D). Delivered since 1981;
    70 fighter-bomber Boeing F-15S Strike Eagle, analogues of the American F-15E, 68 of which will need to be upgraded to standard Boeing F-15SA Strike Eagle. Delivered in 1996-1998.
    87 Panavia Tornado IDS fighter-bombers (10 in reserve). Delivered in 1989-1998
    24 Panavia Tornado ADV fighter interceptor
    24 Eurofighter Typhoon fighters, designed to replace the Northrop F-5E.
    23 Northrop F-5E fighters (55 more stored) are used as reconnaissance aircraft, 120 were delivered in total, one was shot down by Iraqi air defenses in 1991, during Desert Storm.
    The 84 Boeing F-15SA Strike Eagle is expected to ship shortly.
    A total of 311 newest combat aircraft, plus 5 Boeing E-3 Sentry AWACS aircraft. Armada comparable to the British Air Force (217 combat aircraft) and France (278 combat aircraft).
    The American press noted rather decent training for Saudi pilots. So, on January 19, 1991, Saudi Arabian Air Force captain Aihid Salah El Shamrani managed to shoot down two Iraqi Mirage F.15FQs on the F-1. All the details of this battle are not known for certain, but according to American data, the Saudi pilot was pointed at two Iraqi aircraft that tried to attack coalition craft in the Persian Gulf.

        But unfortunately there are few reasons for it. Even Qatar is increasing its air force:
        According to the French newspaper La Tribune in Michel Cabirol's article "Rafale: et si le Qatar se décidait avant la fin de l'année", Qatar plans to acquire 72 modern tactical fighters. As the first stage, Qatar plans to purchase 36 aircraft, and the lead batch will be 12 fighters. According to the publication, Qatar recently sent out requests for proposals for participation in the tender to the relevant manufacturers of three types of vehicles - Dassault Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon and Lockheed Martin F-35. Currently, the Qatar Air Force has only 12 Dassault Mirage 2000-5EDA / DDA fighters and six Alpha Jet E combat trainers from combat aircraft.

        http://bmpd.livejournal.com/

        Yes, and the Syrians have nothing special to shoot back the S-75, S-125 and Kub-M1, which form the basis of the Syrian air defense have long been outdated, there is still hope for the "Shell C1" and "Buk", given that the Syrians still managed to supply the C -300. Well, maybe the Syrian MiG-29 and MiG-25 will show themselves. At least the only RECOGNIZED loss of the US Air Force in an F / A-18C air battle from the VFA-81 deck squadron, shot down on January 17, 1991, was precisely on the account of the Iraqi MiG-25PD.

      Dear Kuznetsov, I’m not arguing that the forces are pretty good, but according to the Institute of the Middle East (in particular Satanovsky), Saudis simply cannot use modern military equipment. Anyone can be supplied to them (and not only to them, to all Arabian oil adversaries), it will still be better in quality than what they themselves would do. Therefore, any GCC country in the event of a clash with Iran can only rely on the help of the West.

        Dear Andrey, I suggest you go to you, I already gave a link to the Saudi pilot who shot down 2 Iraqi Mirages in 1991. Here is information for 1984:
        So, on June 5, 1984, a battle took place over the Persian Gulf between a pair of Saudi F-15s and two F-4s of the Iranian Air Force. The battle took place at short range using vigorous maneuvers and ended with the destruction of one Phantom with a rocket. According to the Saudi Arabian pilots, the second F-4 was also hit by UR and probably destroyed.

        http://www.airwar.ru/history/locwar/persg/f4/f4.html
        So, it's not all bad. Moreover, by and large, Iran has nothing special to fight with. I in no way exaggerate the strength of the "Arabian oil foes" as you put it, but underestimating the enemy, as you know, does not end well. Yours faithfully! hi

I won’t argue with you about this example, since I don’t know all the details of this duel, I believe that I was still not in the cockpit (I do not approve).

            Dear Andrey, I propose to look at the situation soberly. The composition of the Saudi Arabian Air Force I have already given. However, I am sure that it will be supported by other monarchies in the Qatar region (12 Dassault Mirage 2000-5EDA / DDA fighters and 6 Alpha Jet E training and combat aircraft); Bahrain (21 F16, 16 Northrop F-5); Oman (12 Lockheed Martin F-16C / D Fighting Falcon, 24 SEPECAT Jaguar S / B); Kuwait (35 McDonnell Douglas F / A-18 Hornet) UAE (79 Lockheed Martin F-16 block 60 Desert Falcon; 68 Dassault Mirage 2000).
            Total we have: 584 combat aircraft, of which 515 are the fourth generation.
            What Iran can contrast this magnificence (without quotes):
            Fighters - 75
            25 Grumman F-14 Tomcat, delivered at the same time, armed with Iranian copies of the Hawk missile defense system and our R-27, I don’t know how it all works.
            40 MiG-29 (5 UB) -35 delivered to Iran from the USSR in 1990, 5 flew from Iraq in 1991.
            10 French Dassault Mirage F1s flew out of Iraq in 1991.
            fighter-bombers- about 89
            17 Chinese clones of the MiG-21-Chengdu F-7 Airguard, delivered in 1986;
            28 McDonnell-Douglas F-4 Phantom II, delivered during the check in the 70s;
            20 Northrop F-5 Tiger II, delivered during the check in the 70s;
            about 24 HESA Saeqeh, Iranian clone of the modernized F-5 (in different sources the number varies from 6 to 24);

            Attack Aircraft: about 73
            about 30 HESA Azarakhsh, another Iranian clone F-5, with 2 RD-33 engines

            30 Su-24MK, 6 purchased from the USSR in 1990. 24 flew from Iraq in 1991.
            13 Su-25s, 6 purchased from Russia in 1998, 7 flew from Iraq in 1991.
            Total: 237, in the most favorable scenario, of which there are modern (F-14 Tomcat, MiG-29, Su-24, Su-25) -total 108. Iran has no AWACS aircraft.
            So, the correlation of forces in favor of the coalition: 1 to 2,5; according to modern 1 to 4,8. Something like this ... Regards! hi

                        Iran:
                        The number of SV: 350 thousand people, of which 220 thousand - conscripts, conscripts.
                        Tanks from 2385 to 1600, the last figure is closer to the truth, of which about 630 are modern (480 T-72; 150 Zulfiqar-tank of Iranian production: Chieftain chassis, M-60 engine, T-72 gun; 75 T-62, 150 North Korean copies of the T-62 "Cheonmaho"; about 100 Chieftain, about 150 M-60A1; about 150 M-48; about 170 M-47; 540 T-54/55, of which about 200 Type-72Z Safir upgraded by the Iranians 74; 220 Type 59; 200 Type 69).
                        130 light tanks (110 FV101 Scorpion, 20 Iranian copy of the "Scorpion" -Tosan);
                        610 BMP (400 BMP-2, 210 Type 86 / BMP-1)
                        640 BTR (150 BTR-60PB, 150 BTR-50, 200 M-113, 140 Boragh, Iranian copy of BMP-1, with rollers from M-113, with DShK).
                        189 Brazilian BRM EE-9 "Cascavel"
                        870 MLRS (700 copies of the Chinese 107-mm MLRS "type 63", 100 BM-21 "Grad", 50 Hadid / Azrash / Nur Iranian copies of the "Grad", 10 Fajr-3 MLRS of Iranian production)
                        about 2400-2700 artillery pieces, of which 310 are self-propelled (180 SG M-109, 60 SG 2S1 "Gvozdika", 30 SG M-110, 30 SP M-107, 10 North Korean self-propelled guns Koksan, 130 BG M101A1, 540 BG D -30, 100 BG Type-54-Chinese copy of the M-30 model 1938, 984 BP M46 / Type 59-1, 30 BG D-20, 15 BPG WAC-21, 120 BPG GHN-45, 70 BG M- 114, 18 BG FH-77B, 290 HM 41- Iranian copy of the M-114 with an extended barrel, 50 BPG G-5, 20 BG M-115)
                        50 combat helicopters Bell AH-1J Sea Cobra
                        Thus the ratio of forces:
                        personnel: 1,3 to 1 in favor of Iran, taking into account the trained reserve (IRGC, "Basij" ratio will become even more favorable for Iran);
                        tanks: 1,6 to 1 in favor of the coalition, and given modern tanks, then 2 to 1
                        light tanks: 1,3 to 1 in favor of the coalition
                        BMP: 3,7 to 1 in favor of the coalition
                        BTR: 7,8 to 1 in favor of the coalition
                        BRM: 4,3 to 1 in favor of the coalition
                        MLRS: 5,3 to 1, in favor of Iran, but the coalition has complete superiority in large-caliber MLRS, Iran does not have anything similar to the BM-30 "Smerch" or MLRS.
                        Artillery 1,5 to 1 in favor of Iran, but the coalition has superiority in self-propelled artillery 2,8 to 1 in favor of the coalition and with qualitative superiority.
                        Combat helicopters 1,6 to 1 in favor of the coalition, with full qualitative superiority.

            Iran has powerful ground forces, but the air force and air defense are the same. Even the Syrian air force was much cooler. Half of the BS are old American planes that devour each other, and the Iraqi MiG-29s that flew to Iran during the war are too old.

        Dear Kuznetsov, I’m not arguing that the forces are pretty good, but according to the Institute of the Middle East (in particular Satanovsky), Saudis simply can’t use modern military equipment.

        There are Turks and Hranzuzu and the USA and Israel, so Kuznetsov is right, there is little optimism

      F-15SA "imprisoned" for the needs of the Saudi army, moreover - for military operations against the Persians.

      You can vouch - in their electronic brains all the well-known targets on the territory of Iran are described. And they are able to automatically recognize them, receive confirmation of accuracy, and attack - until the optics make sure that the target is completely hit.

      Why didn't the Saudis take the much more sophisticated - and clever - F-35? Because of the price? For the Saudis, the question is never this way.

      The capabilities of "35" are much higher, it is invisible to radar, has such knowledge that not everyone has. So why?

      No matter how smart the F-35 is, it must be exploited and controlled. And if Saudi engineers can easily buy operational engineers, then there are no pilots. It is impossible ... According to international rules, which the Saudis have in relation to the "brothers", although Shiites, they cannot violate. And the level of their own pilots is useless. According to one of the American cadets at one of the forums on the Internet, “the Saudis are good guys, but it’s impossible to teach them how to fly.”

      As a result, the Saudis, whom “it is impossible to teach,” will fly on F-15S fighters - there’s nothing to learn from them.
