Media: advisers from Russia taught the Syrian military new tactical techniques

52
Russian consultants, who began working with the Syrian army even before the start of the VKS operation, trained the servicemen in some new tactical methods of combat, reports Look with reference to the publication of the Strategy Page.




“One of the new methods simply adopted the tactics developed by Islamic terrorist groups in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries and involving the use of motorcycles. Syrian troops often captured such devices from terrorists, but Russian advisers helped them gain from their use, ”the resource writes.

By the end of last year, the Syrian army already had hundreds of motorcycles.

“Rebels often use snipers around city blocks. Snipers were effective against cars that delivered food, ammunition, medical aid. But on motorcycles, Syrian troops can elude snipers, because these vehicles are too small and fast for shooters. Thanks to this, we managed to replenish stocks in places that were previously unavailable, ”the newspaper notes.

According to the resource, today "there are small units (two or three platoons, with 50 – 100 motorcycles) that can imitate the Islamists' favorite tactics — quick attacks that take the enemy off guard.”

Another technique is associated with wider use of UAVs. Now the army has much more drones, and their role in obtaining intelligence information can not be overestimated.

The third method introduced by Russians is to use GoPro cameras attached to armored vehicles and motorcycles. “Chambers are used in training and for analyzing troop effectiveness and explaining tactics. The video turned out to be quite useful - the offscreen commentary explains what exactly happens on the video, useful tips are given, and lessons are learned from what is happening on the screen, ”the author writes.

However, he notes that "the use of cameras is not a unique development: they were used by American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2002,".

“However, the Syrians deserve praise for effectively adapting these old ideas to their current situation,” the resource concludes.

          It seems to me alone that nonsense is written here? Firstly, if “food, ammunition, medical aid” was delivered by cars, then you can't really take anything away with a motor vehicle. Secondly, in urban areas everything is so broken that you can't really accelerate there either by car or by motorcycle. Thirdly, in the lateral projection, the motorcycle is not so much smaller than a passenger car as to represent an unaffected target. request

      The thing is mobility and the size of the motorcycle, if we take the economy into account, then the fuel consumption is much less than that of the jeeps on which the Syrians moved.
      No one is eager for battle, instead of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles. The tasks are completely different.

      And why do you think that specialists with real combat experience are taught bad things?
      I think that you are somewhat divorced from reality.
      And one more thing: in the game you have 100 HP, in a real battle only 1. Do you want to take risks? Do you want to get a bullet from a sniper? I doubt it.

      Wehrmacht and fought on bicycles. However, such mobile units somehow did not take root. By the way, not only Germans used motorcycles, for your information. For example, in the motorized division of the Red Army in the stock of 1940 there were 159 motorcycles. Here are such beauties:

          Obviously, they themselves guessed that motorcycles are a good thing. But our specialists could teach the subtleties of using motor technology, there is experience.
          Now our specialists are actively mastering ATVs, you see, they’ll be taught for several years, and they can move safely and safely on this technique)

But most likely the Syrians were not taught this either - they themselves are not stupid so that for so many years of the war they constantly see how barmalees on bikes cut through not to guess to use them themselves.

          Not a battle tactic. Here we are talking about fast movement. No one rides motorbikes in Syria, holding a machine gun and firing at barmales.
          If you serve in special. unit, then you will be taught to ride on any vehicle in order to save your skin or perform another task at the right time.
          And motorcycles are not military, but civilian, which in bulk in the country. The emphasis is on what is at hand.

But it would be nice if it was a two-way street, so that our military experts not only teach, but also learn. After all, the tactics of militants require not only the development of appropriate response tactics of action, but also poses questions for the designers of military equipment.

    each has its own chip. Persians have been using their favorite technique in the UAR since the time of the Iran-Iraq war. When a strong but compact strike group strikes unexpectedly, then it immediately departs, but not backward (as in the Iraq war), but ... .. forward ---- receives data from the UAV describes the eight and strikes at the same object, but on the other hand.

    But on motorbikes, Syrian troops can elude snipers because these vehicles are too small and fast for shooters.

    Bgggg ... reminded:
    Judging by the sound of the engine, the sniper arrives at the position on a motocross motorcycle and only after he leaves can the fighters rise. During this time, the sniper killed four. Shoots accurately - one of ours got a bullet in the mouth. After each successful shot, the sniper laughs loudly from the "green" - mocks.
