    It's bad that I fell. What about the pilots?
    Aircraft have exhausted their resource, with all the thrifty attitude towards them, they can no longer stand either morally or physically. The miracle is that it is still "on the wing" (which means made in the USSR !!!) good

        Once the pilot is in order, then even a little not feel sorry for the plane. The sooner the old ones fall apart, the faster they will buy new ones from us, and with the new Syrians the bandits and neighbors will be even more afraid.

          Correction .. they won’t buy, but give! There’s nothing to buy for them, so much time is the war in the country! And they will forgive everyone their debts for as long as they say that they borrow, but here the prospect for the future is not bad, so we need to help the Syrians !

    Well, the MiG-23 has one engine. Something more frequent losses at the Syrian Air Force. Although not surprising, the aircraft are old and have been war for 5 years.

      So the intensity of their use is the same, but the machines are already well-deserved. By and large they should have already retired, and they are all fighting.

    Syrian MiGs, unfortunately, repeat the fate of the Indian. I hope the pilot is fine.
    I know what is not in the topic - but recently there was a topic about "Lynx", maybe there were pictures, but I did not see blindly -

      The topic has already been discussed at VO, a summary: as soon as they invent a knapsack nuclear reactor, they will immediately launch it in a series.

    In general, the Sirmian Air Force is in terrible condition. Being sufficiently weak even before the war, today the wear of the material part, after 4 years of intensive use, should be catastrophic. Especially given the lack of their own serious repair facilities and funds for the purchase of repair equipment.

      These funds were not initially available, and the equipment itself and spare parts were purchased on credit, which has already been written off, or will be written off. At whose expense - indicate, or is everything up to date?

    Yes, this is not an aviation of the 40s, there is an "eye" behind it and careful care is needed. In the conditions of a 5-year war, they served, for sure, as best they could. What about the pilots?

      19 GvAPIB hi. It seems that in the 90th only a tail was brought. The pilot remained alive. Not the topic, but you can’t get past such a photo.

      In the spring, hamsin comes to Syria. ... Khamsin is “death to everything with an air prefix”: satellites go blind, aviation cannot fly - there is a huge probability of accidents during take-off and landing, as well as the risk of failure of navigation devices. ... Khamsin causes serious damage to aircraft, especially helicopters.

        Is everything so bad right? The satellites have several spectra, the failure of navigation devices smilewhich do not specify, planes can take off not from Syrian territory, and calmly fly at altitude, helicopters must be covered! Hamsin is just a strong hot wind with dust, it’s not even a sandstorm!

          And if in terms of ensuring your strategic interests in the long term? Or do you think that deliveries of our weapons to Syria are not coming now? We will not cover them there forever from the air. Moreover, they are quite capable guys, they can cope on their own, and they have a fighting spirit. If our "democratic reformers" had not thrown Syria, as well as other real allies, at one time, then no opposition would have poked their heads out there, and ISIS would have broken off all its teeth long ago.

      If alive, but fell into the clutches of bearded bastards, then this is worse than just death. These cattle kill sophisticatedly and tastefully.
