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

35
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.

      Если в Сирии будут наши базы, то "дырку от бубулика" американцы получат, а не Асада...

        Пск. -Да, наконец то есть! И не просто войск а самолётов, там и бомбардировщики и штурмовики и истребители!!! Кроме этого на фото вы можете видеть комплексы ПВО Русских С-300 а возможно и С-400 ну и всякая мелочь типа "Панцырей".
        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.

        Наряду с этим IHS Jane's предоставило четыре фотографии
        Над Сирией у США спутники работают. Над Украиной "плёнка" кончается. Орут - русские сбили Боинг, русские поставляют оружие в Домбас, русские войска перешли украинскую границу. А где фото - плёнку всю на Сирию истратили? what

        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

        А чем артиллерия и ракетное вооружение не угодили? Тоже нет прямого контакта, зато дешевле чем авиация. Так же надо блокировать коммуникации и границы, чтобы "оппозиционеры" воевали только палками и камнями. Разведка, целеуказание, точечные операции спецназа по устранению ключевых командных единиц так называемых "повстанцев" и "борцов с режимом".
        It would be nice to help the life of civilians to establish: construction, repair of houses, water supply, power plants ...

        Согласен с Вами, но не полностью, для прикрытия наших баз достаточно и сил , которыми располагает Асад, тем более если он будет располагать оперативной информацией, предоставляемой нашими. Есть один "нюанс", такая необходимая в военном деле вещь, как БОЕВОЙ ОПЫТ войска могут получить только в боях.А так как в военных действиях в Сирии по сути защищаются интересы России и наши Асада будут поддерживать при любом раскладе, то попутно будут обкатываться и боевое применение вооружения и нарабатываться опыт его применения.

    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.

    Такое впечатление, что в Сирии только русские могут что либо строить. Самим же сирийцам типа это даже в голову не приходило. "Что? Дорогу заасфальтировать? Зачем? Разве это можно?"
    Тенты такие же как у русских. Это похоже на заявления про кибератаки: "Неизвестные взломали серверы... Это уже десятая по счету кибератака русских хакеров"
    Так и в этом сообщении "Если бы облака не помешали, то мы бы увидели тысячу русских танков, миллион солдат и три ядерные ракеты"

    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.

    USA has 730! баз по всему миру, на сейчас почему-то "самое демократическое государство" мусолит, верещит и выражает недовольство по единственным двум Российским в Сирии. Оно и понятно, после свержения законной власти в лице Асада, "миротворцами" в глобальном масштабе должны были стать опять американцы (как в раздавленной Югославии), но видать не судьба им стать снова стать "героями".

    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.

      кому надо - у того и так глаза раскрыты. Явный конфликт с вероятными "партнёрами" никому не нужен. Надо действовать по принципу "А Васька слушает понимающе, но продолжает есть". Надо как бы невзначай пускать на фарш "советников", вытрясать счета на оплату услуг "воинственных мусульман, борющихся с режимом", устраивать акты "самоподрыва" и "самообстрела" в лагерях "оппозиции".

        Что значит "явный конфликт"? Сейчас у нас не явный конфликт, когда нас задавили явными санкциями, явными угрозами и явными вмешательствами во внутренние дела или в сферу влияния России? Это и есть самый настоящий явный конфликт по политическим и экономическим мотивам. И не мы его спровоцировали. Прямого военного конфликта не будет, а вот второй Вьетнам вполне возможен. На счет открытых глаз. Глаза, уши и мозги для того и даны, что бы слушать, видеть и анализировать события. В сегодняшней ситуации, когда явный доминант растащил всех по углам и пинает их по-одиночке по каждому поводу, как раз и надо заявлять о своей жесткой позиции против такого положения. Ни одно государство не сможет оказать сопротивление отдельно, но если последует сигнал от тех же Китая, России..., картина измениться. Если реально показать свою решимость, показать реальные действия, очень многие захотят встряхнуться, сбросить с себя колониальные отношения. Поэтому "а Васька слушает и ест" приведут только к дальнейшей эскалации проблем у наших границ. И следующих на очереди пинDosы уже выбрали. Скоро должна вспыхнуть Средняя Азия.
