Media: flamethrower "Buratino" is able to change the course of the military campaign in Syria

Delivery to Syria of heavy flame-throwing systems "Buratino" can change the course of the Syrian campaign, as well as the "rules of the game" established in the region, believes The National Interest columnist Dave Majumdar.


Media: flamethrower "Buratino" is able to change the course of the military campaign in Syria


"Mounted on the chassis tank T-72 TOS-1 is not an ordinary self-propelled artillery installation, primarily it is designed to launch massive thermobaric missiles against infantry in confined spaces such as urban and mountainous areas, ”the observer quotes RIA News.

“At its core, the TOC-1 Buratino is a T-72 tank with a tower removed from it, instead of which a charge of 30 220 mm missiles is placed,” writes Majumdar.

Two variants of rockets are supplied for the system: “one of them contains thermobaric rockets, the other contains rockets that use incendiary devices,” he notes.

According to the analyst, “Buratino”, unlike traditional artillery, “was created as weapon support for infantry, its radius of action - from 400 to 5000 meters. "

“TOC-1 can destroy an area of ​​200 m by 400 m in one gulp. In other words, it can instantly turn several quarters into smoldering debris,” the author writes.

"Such technical characteristics may well change the course of the military campaign in Syria," Majumdar sums up.

    In Syria, you need not only to deliver weapons, but also to train the Syrian army. If it loses combat effectiveness, then no Pinocchio will help. And to fight on earth for the Syrians would be a mistake.

          Until now, MLRS are often called "Katyushas". And by analogy, for TOS the name "Buratino" is more boring. And by analogy with the name Katyusha, Buratino is the name of the subject and it can be animated. And "Solntsepek" is an action, and the name will not be very popular.

        Unfortunately, combat readiness is determined not only by the courage of soldiers, but also by the presence of modern weapons. And the Syrians have few of them. Over the years of the war, they suffered heavy losses both in people and in technology. And if not for the timely intervention of the Russian Aerospace Forces, by today, most likely, Damascus would have fallen. So we need to restore the combat capability of the Syrian army.

      If we do not want to get stuck, we will have to fight "on the ground for the Syrians" as gunners. It is necessary to send an artillery brigade (this is not the infantry, which goes to the attack, there are no "retaliation", the probability of the death of the gunners is minimal) and urgently cover the border with Turkey.
      When saving our pilot, the Syrians went there, but put up a block of posts, ambushes in the rear, etc. obviously they don’t know how, they don’t know how, and they don’t want to fight properly.

    Only, for God's sake, do not write about it to "Censor" - it will blow it down with the 9th shaft (kakly will spit out of resentment and indignation), they will still believe - they will become, sometimes it seems that they think with a spinal cord.
    But seriously, this message in the media is a usual hype with the aim of attracting attention and raising ratings, due to hysterical screams about the next "wunderwaffe". It's fashionable now. In the fight against such an adversary as extremists and terrorists from the paramilitary bandit formations of a pseudo-Islamic quasi-state, it is not very important which weapon to use. The main thing is that the hands that hold this weapon are firm and the warriors to whom it is entrusted are full of determination to fight and win.
    I have the honor.

    Do not overstate the importance of pork for all Muslims. Many Muslims start eating lard in the absence of a healthy alternative in their diet. And they even choose what is tastier. He treated himself repeatedly and ate. If you yourself eat lard, then you can "seduce" a Muslim for a sample.
    But, for example, Indians with beef are more serious about everything. Once I witnessed how not very smart people, under the guise of another meat, gave Indian meat beef, and then they said that he actually ate - like trying to make a joke. The poor Hindu nearly tore this meat. He was already skewed.

        A fair question. In order for the "bill" to be minimal, it is necessary to supply the Syrians with the equipment and weapons that are replaced in our army with more modern ones. So its transfer to the Syrians, albeit free of charge, will not cost much more (or even cheaper) than storage on conservation or "remelting"

    well lie! Well, all analysts lie! Well this is all against Ukraine!
    Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Alexander Turchinov said that Ukraine should be prepared for the fact that Russia will use aviation in the event of a new wave of escalation of the conflict in the Donbass.
    He said this in an interview with Ukrainian media.
    “What is happening in the Middle East, what is happening in Syria, namely, the active use and development by the Russian Federation of the combat use of aircraft - this is very worrying us. We are studying both the strategy and tactics of the Russian military in delivering air strikes, "he said.
    “And we understand that in the event of a new escalation of the conflict in the east of our country or on any part of the Russian-Ukrainian border, aviation can be used. And must be prepared for this. And, of course, when aggression is from the air, we will protect ourselves by destroying the aggressor in the air, ”Turchinov promised.
    “Now they are practicing the use of military aviation, the use of missiles, in particular cruise missiles. They launch rockets from the air, from ships, including even from a submarine, only in order to work out their application, to work out an exact hit on targets, ”he said.
    The purpose of all this, according to the secretary of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council, is "to destroy Ukraine as an independent democratic state."

    The course of the war can only be changed by cutting off financial flows from the Suad. Arabia, Qatar, UAE and the United States. Syria will no longer be united, there are too many ideological, religious, interethnic contradictions and too much blood has been shed. I agree with Strelkov's opinion that it was necessary to help Syria back in 2011. I think Putin understands that Syria will no longer be united and the only reason for the actions of the Russian expeditionary force in Syria is the preservation of two naval bases and the presence in the Mediterranean basin. It is also necessary to act in the political arena by publicly denouncing the sponsors of "terrorism" (like the scenario of the Western special services), as well as to more actively find common ground on this issue with Germany and France, relying on healthy forces in these countries, if they still remain.

If it becomes known that any convoy of terrorists is guaranteed to be burned, those wishing to dangle across the border will greatly decrease. And further on even Afghan tactics.

    How moaned the whiners are that the Syrians are not trained, and not ready for modern weapons. Remember the Second World War and the last year compare and the Syrians also study, war is the best school for a soldier. And since the days of the USSR, from the time Assad clan came to power, they study in our military schools, almost every military school has and had infaki, so we called them back when I studied at KVTIU and the Syrians are very good students, well or almost.

    TOS-1 "Buratino" is undoubtedly one of the effective means of fighting the enemy. However, it is not a universal means. For the first time in hostilities, such a system was used, in my opinion, during an assault. . This is confirmed by the date of the operation. TOS-1 "Buratino" is an effective means of combat when equipment and personnel are in the open area. When deployed in combat columns. If equipment and people are on prepared defense lines. Dug into the ground or rocks, then "Buratino" becomes ineffective. In this case, only good old cannon artillery can help.
