Khmeimim airbase in Syria is a typical Russian military town with its well-adjusted life and life, where even lunch, breakfast and dinner are strictly according to schedule.
According to many military journalists, they didn’t see such a level of comfort in combat conditions before.
To ensure the actions of the Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation in Syria, the logistics base, airfield engineering, aerodrome technical and special types of support have been created and function smoothly at the airbase.
Dozens of types of infrastructures are deployed - equipment refueling stations, warehouses, including the storage of missiles and ammunition, field points of supply, bakeries, and bath and laundry complexes.
The personnel is placed in special comfortable blocks of containers that allow you to create different configurations. The rooms in these units are equipped with necessary furniture and air conditioning systems, which is especially important in the hot climate of this country. By capacity, they are designed for two to four people stay.
At the air base there is also a mobile bakery PCB-04 baking wheat, rye-wheat and rye bread in the field: 300 kilograms of wheat and 400 rye bread per day.
KP-130 and PAK-200 field kitchens are used for cooking at the base. Any kind of fuel is suitable for them - diesel fuel, coal, ordinary firewood.

    What a beautiful bread they got there)))
    ... And in Russia it smelled of spring, rooks fly to their nests
    And in Russia, girls have been waiting for your love
    Come back guys with Victory alive
    How our grandfathers saved the world from the Nazis returned home ...
    It is awkward, for the truth and only those who have not been in a foreign land once will not understand this.

    The residential blocks containers with no windows look sad;
    Even in construction houses they are.
    And air conditioners do not see anything.
    Maybe it's not residential containers?

      This is a standard container house. Window at the opposite end of the container. Air conditioning is there. If there is.

    All is well, only in one of the signatures - the Su-34 is not a "fighter".

    Enjoyed a loaf of bread ...
    Actually, which should be 1 kg, and not 400 grams, as in stores.
    Deceiving us ...
    When the USSR was 1 loaf of bread 1kg, came labeled and started: First, 800 gr. then 600g, then 400g.

    I looked and immediately a lot of questions arose in my head, not about bread, but which bombs lay. How appeared Pantsyr. How much is an hour of flight of a front-line bomber. Finally, the goal of this event. I hope I know the answers to these questions. I'm afraid over time, and many others will begin to understand the essence of what is happening.

      It happened ambiguously.
      And on IL-76 - do they not load the package with humanitarian aid?

    All this is very interesting and it is right to destroy the igil and our air forces well done - I don’t understand if the economic crisis in Russia is denied only by those who either have very large incomes or have very little mind - what our government does is regularly raise tariffs, prices, excise taxes why nobody touches - those Fat cats that our guarantor of the constitution spoke about - everything is stupidly passed on to ordinary citizens - the minimum salary in my region is 6200 - they are waiting for the nannies and nurses to go to rallies and the BB officers will disperse them by the means they write here - maybe we are not looking for the enemies of Russia there

    If I correctly considered, then the 30th fly with two p-27 and p-73? Correct if wrong. Far from full load. Although time is in the air, and the likelihood of close maneuverable combat is present. I doubt very much that the Turks would have climbed to fight in close combat.
    Magnificent bread loaves, our women bake ... God grant health, more trophies and fewer surprises !!!

    Well done! By chance, on the plane, I was a fellow traveler of the sunburned and thinned military flights flying in crews. SMELL from them! They smell like Desert and Death for enemies. I made the sign of the cross over them and read the Cossack prayer, which was from a bullet and from steel. But it can be seen from them that "a year in two" they do not pay their pension at 45 in vain. War inspired ...

    I do not know. how to interpret your note, I hope the words do not apply to you: "One q, y, p, a, k can ask so many questions that even a thousand wise men will not answer."
    It is good that you, among those not many who have seen and understood the essence of what is happening, could you help me to see and understand, for example, to me, most likely one of many who tried to understand your comment, the essence of what is happening.
    Even if your point of view is different from the patriotic one, do not be shy, and explain it reasonably.
    P / s Your statement reminds
    “And today, tomorrow, not everyone can watch. Or rather, not only everyone can watch, not everyone can do it.

    How the bombing of fuel trucks began, it became clear to many.
