The blogger draws attention to the fact that the position of Russian howitzers is defended by various units “on T-90 tanks and BTR-82 armored personnel carriers, along with the Syrian BMP-1 and 57-mm C-60 anti-aircraft self-propelled guns on the cargo chassis”.

        The result of an art duel is difficult to fix with an UAV. The batteries after the volley try to leave the position, the next volley from another place. You need to know where to take the drone. Only from satellite. But the vidocq is not the same.

          The Khmeimim airbase in Syria received a Tu-214R radio-technical and optoelectronic reconnaissance aircraft, The Aviationist blog reports citing Flightradar24 data.

          According to the blog, the plane flew on February 15 from Kazan to the Russian air base in Syrian Latakia.

          Tu-214R is a radio-technical and optoelectronic reconnaissance aircraft, created on the basis of the passenger Tu-214 to replace the Il-20. The aircraft is equipped with multi-frequency radio complex MRK-411 with radar stations of side and all-round visibility, as well as the Fraction high-resolution optical-electronic system.

          The aircraft was built by order of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces at the Kazan Aircraft Plant.

            Yes, and not enough art for a full-fledged art duel. When the small battery is working, the gunners will be in soap. Although they shoot at long distances, it means that the probability of an answer is less and you can shoot longer. But no one canceled the change of position.

          That's for sure! The device is proven, reliable since 1987 in production, range up to 29000m. When firing a high-explosive fragmentation shell of the latest generation, the firing range is 24000 meters, and when using OFS with a gas generator, the firing range increases to 29 meters. A new type of ammunition is a container that scatters tiny radio transmitters designed to interrupt enemy communications. In addition, from the howitzer 000A2 you can shoot an armor-piercing adjustable projectile with laser guidance "Krasnopol".
          We will see !.

            I studied the first shot to 2A65 "Krasnopol" ("Krasnopolye") 30 years ago at a military school, then served as a military officer and all this time "Krasnopol" was HE shell, never heard of armor-piercing rounds for 2A65 Krasnopol. Now I have not served for a long time, maybe I have fallen behind. I ask you to tell who knows what kind of armor-piercing projectile "Krasnopol" is, maybe they put a cumulative warhead, the steel core is useless, at such long distances the speed is not the same.

        We take a compass, draw a circle with a firing range of 24,7 km, circle it in red, it turns out - a "red line" for the attackers.

        "152-mm howitzer" Msta-B "(GRAU index - 2A65, according to NATO classification - M1987) - Russian / Soviet towed 152-mm howitzer, which is in service with the armed forces of some countries of the former USSR, is designed to destroy tactical means of nuclear attack, artillery and mortar batteries, tanks and other armored vehicles, destruction of field fortifications and other defensive structures, suppression of manpower and fire weapons, command posts, anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense.

        To ensure automated fire control of artillery divisions armed with towed Msta-B howitzers, the Falsett and Kapustnik complexes were developed.

        The howitzer is in service with the Armed Forces of Russia and several CIS countries.

        Msta-S
        Msta-S can use several types of high-explosive and active-rocket shells, cluster munitions, as well as a number of guided and adjusted shells. You can also fire special ammunition, which is used to set communications interference. The self-propelled guns can use Krasnopol-M1 guided projectiles for firing, which are guided by a laser beam.

    The arrival of our equipment on the Syrian front pleases, if only the Syrian fighters learned how to handle it well. What surprised and amused was CNN's lack of professionalism. I understand that the appearance of GPS on cars saves our friends and partners from studying geography, but it does not get rid of lies. The headline announced that Msta howitzers had been spotted near Palmyra, and the report indicated that they had been spotted near Latakia. But these are completely different places, the distance from Palmyra to Latakia is about 500 km. So, you would have decided at least where you saw "Mstu", gentlemen, or fear has big eyes, they say, either in Palmyra, or in Latakia, what's the difference, the main thing is that you saw somewhere - Russians are coming.

    Turkey will strenuously go to provocations to create "public opinion in the West" - Russia threatens Turkey's security and it is forced to close the Bosphorus for it. Duplication of pictures and videos with our equipment only contributes to this. And the West is just waiting for this. I think ours are calculating this option,
    like the closure of the straits.

    Well, the technique, this is understandable, but why immediately our contingent? Yesterday there was a message that a unit of Syrians on the T-90 appeared near Allepo, well, that's right. And howitzer why Syrians can not be? For 4 months, you can train the Syrians well.

    This information leak is most likely a well-thought-out step - there is a hint from Turkey "You will go full blown".

    The fact that our equipment is fighting in Syria is no secret. The fact that our advisers teach the Syrians is also a fact.
    Well, more large caliber, including in Latakia. More trunks - less desire among the Ottomans to try the Syrian border.

    And it pleases. Enough of justifying yourself to someone and explaining everything to everyone. We got involved in a fight - we must quickly and effectively bring it to victory .. But the winners are not judged. We do not explain to anyone and do what they want. And the pocket UN is not a decree for them.

      I remembered about the recent conversation about a gun in the back of a Mercedes. And about the feasibility of fencing such inventions. Here, Ours are not particularly worried about the notorious mobility. The towed gun in these conditions is that.

    The same is in politics. And statements about international law and "partners" are dust in the eyes

    While the other side can not oppose anything, it’s dust, but as soon as a worthy adversary appears, then this international law again becomes in demand, and negotiations begin! soldier

    Hmm ... also, a sensation ... All the samples sought by Syria are supplied now and are intensively used by the army of this state. Now, if "Iskander-M" was in the frame or "Coalition" - then yes, it would be possible to say about the participation of our army in the ground phase of the war.
