IHS Jane's: Russia can create two military bases in Syria

Analytical company IHS Jane's reported that Russia may be engaged in the preparation of two military bases in Syria, located near the city of Latakia, according to RIA "News".




"Through the analysis of satellite photographs, our company identified two objects in Syria, which were not previously reported and which can be prepared to receive the Russian armed forces," reports the report's editor Robert Munks.

Munks stressed that this is “the Istamo weapons storage complex and the Al-Sanobar military complex located north of Latakia airport.” According to him, "this activity includes the construction of new buildings, substantial clearing, planning and asphalting of the territory." Munks also drew attention to the "presence of tents of the same type used by the Russian military units."

Along with this, IHS Jane's provided four photos, two of which, she said, were made on March 10, and two more on September 13 on 2015. The first pair of images depicts the Istamo complex, according to the decoding presented by the company in the September photo, four more fairly aligned areas, one concreted area and two new construction objects added to the picture in March.

The second pair of images shows the Al-Sanobar complex, in which several “vehicles” and awnings appeared there. At the same time, part of the object in the photograph is covered with clouds, which makes it difficult to determine with accuracy whether these “means” have been moved from another landfill to new locations.

According to Munks, “it is likely that military personnel will move to these bases” from the area of ​​the Latakia airport. According to him, IHS images from September 21 show there "a significant increase in the number of ready-to-fly jets". Munks stressed that we are talking about "four Su-30 SM aircraft, twelve Su-25, the same number of Su-24M, and also possibly six Ka-52 helicopters". Earlier on Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that these images were received from the satellite division of the Airbus Group.

      If our bases are in Syria, then the Americans will get the “hole from bubulik,” not Assad ...
      Well done GDP. Thinks for decades to come.

        Jour. Do you have evidence of the presence of Russian troops in Ukraine?
        Psk. -Yes, finally there is! And not just troops but planes, there are bombers and attack aircraft and fighters !!! In addition, in the photo you can see the Russian S-300 air defense systems, and possibly the S-400 as well, and every little thing like the "Armor".
        Jour. -But sorry, these are photos from Syria! ..
        Psk. -Ah, man, don't be so boring! And anyway, what's the difference? .. Ummm, the next question.

        Along with this, IHS Jane's has provided four photos
        Satellites are working on Syria in the United States. Over Ukraine, the "film" ends. Screaming - the Russians shot down a Boeing, the Russians deliver weapons to Dombas, the Russian troops crossed the Ukrainian border. And where is the photo-film all spent on Syria? what

      If our infantry "doesn’t get anywhere", then very soon they will climb to it and these bases will be under siege.

        All the same, the Persians and Syrians seem to take over the land. We will support them from the air. Do not deliver unconnected strikes like the United States, but purposefully crush the strengthening of the Islamists while supporting the advance of the Iranian units. Ig, of course, the goal is not the main one, although I think the palmyra will be beaten off. First of all, they will crush the nusra and the Islamic front. So squeals of mattress covers are provided. laughing

        And what did not please artillery and missile weapons? There is also no direct contact, but cheaper than aviation. It is also necessary to block communications and borders, so that the "opposition" fought only with sticks and stones. Reconnaissance, target designation, targeted operations of special forces to eliminate the key command units of the so-called "rebels" and "fighters with the regime."
        It would be nice to help the life of civilians to establish: construction, repair of houses, water supply, power plants ...

        I agree with you, but not completely, to cover our bases, the forces that Assad has are sufficient, especially if he has the operational information provided by ours. There is one “nuance”, such a thing necessary in military affairs as combat experience can be obtained by troops only in battles. And since the military interests in Syria protect the interests of Russia and our Assad will support in any situation, they will run around and combat use of weapons and experience in its application.

    That's great, if only our guys were not sent to fight. In general, the result of Russia's efforts is not yet visible, well, they are constructing and sending equipment, but there is no information on progress in Syria yet. Perhaps only preparation so far, but why?

      And how without ours? The pilots are ours anyway, the instructors on the front lines are also ours .. The main thing is that the Syrians themselves are in the infantry ..

    Latakia under the agreement - Russian AB in 2048 (!)
    According to the agreement with the SAR, the Russian Federation may place a Death Star there.
    Janes is really afraid that ISIS - kirdyk will come.

    It seems that only Russians can build anything in Syria. But the Syrians themselves didn’t even think of it. "What? Asphalt the road? Why? Is it possible?"
    Awnings are the same as in Russian. This is similar to the statement about cyber attacks: "Unknown hacked servers ... This is already the tenth cyber attack of Russian hackers"
    So in this message, “If the clouds didn’t interfere, then we would see a thousand Russian tanks, a million soldiers and three nuclear missiles”

    With this, everything is clear - but the fact that Amerikos wants to deliver nuclear bombs to Germany must be solved with the help of a base in Cuba or at least with a couple of installations (certainly not against the Americans but against the Needle) Satan !!! lol

      Easier: you need to do information stuffing about the likely course of the conflict in Europe. About the use of tactical nuclear weapons, about possible destruction, mortality, etc. The locals themselves will do everything for us.

    Suma wouldn't get off. The Rooks with the Dartanyans (Su 24 according to NATO terminology Fencer) flew in, sprinkle profusely the evil heads with chalk. Wait for the Igilovites in your homeland. Already swimming.
    Imagine the departure of 12 front-line bombers, 12 attack aircraft with six flying tanks under the protection of four Dryers. "I'm not a coward, but I'm afraid"

    USA has 730! bases around the world, for now, for some reason, the "most democratic state" is musing, screaming and complaining about the only two Russians in Syria. It is understandable, after the overthrow of the legitimate authority in the person of Assad, the Americans should again become "peacekeepers" on a global scale (as in crushed Yugoslavia), but they should not see their fate to become "heroes" again.

    Two conclusions can be drawn from this information and earlier statements by the US Foreign Ministry. The first - there are more polite people and forces in Syria, there will be even more and they will incline all hostile forces either to cooperate or to politely respect each other. The second - pin Dosy very clearly and rudely made it clear that if politeness becomes the norm in the Middle East, then in the countries that supported it, terrorist activities can be activated, from allegedly Alkaids, igilas and heaps of other Islamic militants. But, we know who created this lair cockroach. Therefore, if something follows, it can be equated with the actions of MI5, the CIA, COP, Massad ... Is it time to take up the main inspirers and distributors of all these cancerous tumors all over the world. We look forward to the appearance of GDP at the UN General Assembly. It's time to open your eyes, bring undeniable evidence (not by psaki) and dot all the i.

      whoever needs it - his eyes are open. No one needs an explicit conflict with probable "partners". We must act on the principle "And Vaska listens understandingly, but continues to eat." It is necessary, as if by chance, to let the "advisers" to mince, to shake out the bills to pay for the services of "warlike Muslims fighting the regime," to arrange acts of "self-disruption" and "self-shelling" in the "opposition" camps.

        What does "clear conflict" mean? Now we do not have a clear conflict, when we were crushed by clear sanctions, clear threats and clear interferences in internal affairs or in the sphere of influence of Russia? This is the most obvious conflict for political and economic reasons. And we did not provoke him. There will be no direct military conflict, but a second Vietnam is quite possible. At the expense of open eyes. Eyes, ears and brains are for that given to listen, see and analyze events. In today's situation, when a clear dominant has dragged everyone around in the corners and kicks them individually for every reason, it is just necessary to declare our tough position against this situation. No state can resist separately, but if a signal comes from China, Russia ... the picture will change. If you really show your resolve, show real actions, many will want to shake themselves, to throw off colonial relations. Therefore, "Vaska listens and eats" will only lead to a further escalation of problems at our borders. And the next in line pin Dosy have already chosen. Central Asia should break out soon.
