General Kuralenko on the situation in Syria


“From April 3 to the present, the Jebhat al-Nusra terrorist groups continue to attack government positions in the southwestern part of Aleppo province. Government forces in repelling the offensive destroyed more than 250 terrorists, two tank and other equipment, ”said the head of the Center.

“Despite the measures taken to cease fire, in the northern part of the province of Latakia and in the south of the province of Idlib, attacks of the Dzhebhat al-Nusra units continue to attack the positions of the Syrian army. So, 10 on April 2016, the detachments of "Dzhebhat an-Nusra" launched an offensive in the settlement. Zaytundzhik - n. Kellaz, ”said Kuralenko.

“In the evening of the same day after the artillery preparation, the armed formations of Jebhat al-Nusra launched an offensive in the direction of Tel Wasef, Herbet al-Arus. Units of government troops with the support of artillery repelled the attack, they also inflicted aviation strikes, ”he added.

Touching on the topic of reconciliation, the general noted that this process is developing most successfully in the province of Damascus.

“The most successful process of reconciliation of the warring parties is in the provinces of Damascus and Homs. During the week, agreements were reached on reconciliation with representatives of four settlements. Commanders of two groups of moderate opposition operating in the provinces of Aleppo and Damascus joined the cessation of hostilities, ”he said.

Negotiations with the leaders of the armed forces on the conclusion of a truce continue.

"The number of localities that joined the reconciliation process increased to 61, and the militias who declared their commitment to accept and fulfill the conditions for the cessation of hostilities, to 47," Kuralenko said.

    Nothing more two years, and ISIS will be remembered as a nightmare. The Syrians do not take prisoners of beards, and cut them immediately. So it seems to me that this infection is slowly but surely destroyed.

      It is difficult to agree with your optimism, given the mobilization base of 1.5 billion (!) Sunni population of the planet. It’s not difficult to ring a half-starved and embittered world fool. And if he also has to pay, then there will be no end to those who wish. Everything will be decided here only at the level of overlapping financing, weapons and the influx of new personnel. And this is almost unrealistic, given the interest of the owners of world money in this meat grinder ...

      To condolences to your relatives ... What not to say, but MI-28H is still raw turntables. There were incidents in Russia related to chips in the engine, etc. That is why MI-24 and MI-35 have been working there for months like workhorses. We decided to advertise the new items. Work on the shaft still to improve. It seems to me that even the Ka-52 is more ready, although it has also fallen, but because of the tests in the beyond limits. Pilots land down and the kingdom of heaven. Native hold and strength.

                I am also a patriot of Russian technology. But I have the impression that MI-28 is still not fully brought to mind. Few survived after the fall of the MI-28, although if you believe the designers, then a fall from a low altitude, it dampens the front chassis, body, and even the seat. But for the time being, Lord, forgive me, only once did the operator-navigator survive in the Stavropol region, and the pilot died. On Ka-52 then, in my opinion, both ejected into the Moscow region. And Mi-28 still more often falls than Ka-52. I do not want to break spears on this day, but when the next article for MI-28H comes out, you will need to discuss these moments with shavings from the gearbox, etc. Did a conclusion in Rostov, where it is collected? And it is better to wait for the results of the commission.

                  By and large, the Ka-50 did not go into production, although it was run-in ... The Ka-52 was created on its basis, but remember what kind of slaughter it was - they even wanted to completely destroy the Ka-52 again and equip the Air Force-VKS with the Mi-28 ... Then it was already decided - to supply both these and these to the troops ...

              MTBF compared to Mi-24 in Mi-28 is likely to be noticeably shorter (more often breaks). But it seems that this is not directly related to the design as such. it always happens. With any helicopter during development. Plus it is not known what was there. It seems like the storm season begins there. and the conditions are initially difficult. Pilots - eternal memory. But the question of comparison with Ka-52 - yes. however, many copies will be broken, everyone will remain in their opinion

        Don’t say, but MI-28N is still raw turntables

        They are not raw a single gram. Both the Mi-28 and the Ka-52 have flown for several years, and not even for the first decade. No matter how run-in the car is, there is still a risk of an accident. It's a pity for the pilots, there's nothing to say. The only thing that, as far as I know, there is no ejection system on the Mi-28, there is, so to speak, an "emergency escape from the cockpit" system, in which the blades are shot back, and the crew independently gets out of the cockpit and jumps with a parachute. It's strange that they didn't use it ...

        Mi-28 crashed during military OlympicI think the Ka-52 is less "raw" than the "Night Hunter".
        Purely human, I really hope that the people who assemble the Mi-28 at the factory just realize that the lives of our people depend on their actions or inaction and are thus at risk protecting us and their distant frontiers and here’s a war machine assembled by our people. ... this is also a stab in the back by and large. (given that this is not the first disaster / accident Mi28)
        Stavropol Territory February 15 2011 years due to chips entering the engine gearbox. Two pilots were hospitalized.
        "Caucasus 2012 " the crew performed a planned training flight. Due to unclear circumstances, the helicopter Mi-28 around 09.20 16 August of this year from a height of 80 meters began to descend unplanned, and after a while fell on the runway of the military airfield Mozdok "
        Also an accident Mi-28N occurred on June 19, 2009 during flights at the Gorokhovets Combined Arms Range in the Tver Region - during the firing of unguided aircraft rockets at low altitude, the propellant gases of the rockets got into the air intakes of the engines,

        at the height that they fly there, well, you really need to try and leave the car if you have a catapult. It’s a pity the crew! But this is a war, and besides, the work intensity is high, again, the operating conditions are harsh. request The 52nd also lost one near Tver, but there was a different story to the campaign - they too believed in the omnipotence of the machine.

        "The development of the helicopter has been carried out at the Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant since 1978 in a creative competition with the Kamov Design Bureau - in accordance with the Decree of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the USSR Council of Ministers of December 16, 1976, which provided for the creation of a new generation of Mi combat helicopters on a competitive basis. -28 and B-80, later Ka-50.

    destroyed more than 250 terrorists, two tanks and other equipment

    A legitimate question arises, but how many militants are in this direction? When they say that 1,5-2 thousand, plus about 300 more, crossed the Turkish border, then destroying 100-300 militants in no way can they repel their systematic attacks? Is there some strange arithmetic, or are we not understanding something?

    In the evening of the same day, after the artillery barrage, the armed formations of Jabhat al-Nusra went on the offensive.
    How can you allow such artillery barrage with overwhelming air superiority? Maybe it's time to switch to permanent duty from the "in the air" position?

      What do you mean by "overwhelming air superiority"? For such a huge space as Syria, there are only 2-3 dozen aircraft and the same number of helicopters. The available air force can hardly provide real support for two or three regiments on the ground. A total of ten divisions are fighting there on each side ...

        Yes, but do not forget that the truce is now :-) And there are not so many hot spots ... + the valiant Syrian Air Force does not need to be discounted ... And yet, yes .. there are more than three dozen sides ... And this is pulling the Aviation Division. For example, the Voronezh bomber regiment numbered about 15 twenty-four dryers. Of which, God forbid, half flew. And the rest were a reserve of wartime with a flight resource of 20-30 hours .... This is me, note ..

    Are you serious? At the heights at which our pilots work, to manage to do all the necessary manipulations and jump with a parachute so that it still has time to open and extinguish the fall, it seems to me, is simply not realistic.
