      Defense ministers, they don't just fly to a belligerent country! It seems like the US wants to start mixing ... Shoigu is sure he did not come empty-handed! The surprise will be gentlemen and very unexpected again ...

      Well, there they act out the second act.

      First, unknown planes bombed the position of the New Syrian Army (a joint project of Abdala and the Pentagon).

      Then, there was information that the Hornets, urgently raised, had identified the Su-34.

      Then, the New Syrian removed the ammunition with which they were bombed - 500 cartridges.

      Then, Ashton Kacher himself called this bombardment blatant, followed by consequences.

      Although, to be honest, the meaning of the bombing of the New Syrian is incomprehensible. These are such refined insurgents, trained by Abdal on the basis of the royal special forces, they are armed, they supply Jordan with the latest weapons (100% of Browning carts, more than 50% of Aroid rifles with body kit, EBRs + latest bolts, and about TOU, mortars, etc.) not worth it). However, she fights exclusively with the Caliphate. With Assad, after the collapse of the Southern Front, no.

      A bit in history, Abdala was initially supported by the Southern Front, which attacked in Daraa quite successfully, even more actively than now in Aleppo. Then, this front was defeated, and then in Sheikh Misin, a couple of hundred generally wrapped up at once, and the rest fled to Jordan. Here, then Abdala came out of the project of war with Assad. The southern front, or rather its remnants that did not escape from hopelessness in Nusra / Caliphate, eats up the last crackers without salt, and prays to Allah, for another day of life, without supplies and reinforcements, and the worst, they also meet with fire in Jordan.

      That is, now in the south the situation is quite calm and predictable.

      A raid on the King's project could change this situation radically. Yes, and the United States can inflate, it was not Nusra that was bombed, which is advancing in Aleppo - it is so difficult to sell, but the New Syrian one is easy - which fought with the Caliphate, did not conduct any hostilities with Assad and, in general, the "Democrats".


      No, it is possible to bomb them, but when Halasa, Bernan and Zeytan are lost in Aleppo, and the broads launched the initial assault on Hader - not in the first place. And not even in the third.

          No, I'm talking about the fact that in the same Aleppo, the JAF feels ok and single raids do not particularly bother them. They ride in columns along roads and squeeze territories.

          Or in DeZe, Black occupied Panorama Checkpoint, as well as high-rises and also feel calm, their lone MiG-21 ironing.

          Why do you still have to make enemies, who so far sit quietly and fight with the blacks? Moreover, this is another part of Syria (south), and it’s only specially to fly after them.

            Well, it seems like they do not participate in the truce, and even if they are refined even now .... In general, the "quiet man" can hit in the back, and the babakhs who clump together and feel frivolous and get used to single attacks from the MiG-21 - let them get used to it. So it will be easier and more convenient to sprinkle them.
            Well, it’s just Imha that the military hope I know what they’re doing and the experience of war with terrorists is very large (unfortunately).

              So, after all, 4 cassettes cannot be smashed New Syria, they have a bulldozer there and before 5 gantraks were cut. They then need to be bombed daily and on an ongoing basis.

              Especially in Aleppo, there are not enough forces, and New Syrian can change priorities and trample in Daraa to Assad, and with the support of Abdala, who may well open deliveries to all counter-assaults, as in 2015. And there will be another hot spot requiring immediate reinforcements, by the way the forces pulled out from there, just like to Homs (when Black raided the oil industry), but it is also possible to Hama - when they pulled from there to Aleppo.

          Assad will stand - despite all the efforts of the aggressors in the person of the USA, the West and the Saudis

          Both Assad and Russia are fighting for Assad, and Hezbollah and China are helping. Political support is provided by all 9 countries of the Bolivarian Union. And I hope Russia will somehow agree with Israel.

    Russia must also help the Syrian people. Bashar al-Assad is our strategic ally in the Middle East. You can not give Syria to be torn to pieces by Western scum, the loss of Syria will be a serious strategic miscalculation of the Russian side. And thank God in the Kremlin understand this

        In Aleppo, everything is stably bad. This is not great. I guess next week will be the first assault on Hader.


        Bernans and Zeytans left without a fight - presented the baboons with several ammunition depots, including Iranian Vampires, a rifleman (even exotic machine guns from the DPRK), sniper rifles, including the Iranian 12,7 AM-50, mines, LNG. Also left the T-72 stalled - which the Baboons dragged away.

        And the losses were decent, the Lebanese who had been thrown over gave only 1,5 days of delaying the fall of Halasa, for which they managed to leave Zeytan and Bernan without falling into the bag - the Lebanese lost 1,5 people in 12 days.

        Well, preparation, too. The same Khan-Tuman defended with a single embankment, with strongholds at 2-3 positions from the bags. They were thrown off the embankment and immediately began to fight outside the city.

        Or, now, Palmyra, the offensive to the base T3. Field - visibility to the horizon. A group with Tank, gantraks and infantry noticed the Isstichiad of this type:


        It began to work, in 42 seconds of fire contact, an 1 shot of Tank was fired (past), several bursts from DShK / Zu-23 - which went to 10 a second away (namely, they could really stop the suicide bomber), as a result, the man led the fight to the end A gerbil, with a PPE (even with glasses on the back of his head, from which he is considered Russian) - from the machine gun and everything, even the turret shooter jumped to 20 second. As a result, the broads broke through, at the tank open hatches, which means the crew there tore through the fighting compartment, plus several who didn’t manage to escape scattered in different directions ...

          Unfortunately this is our Marine who died. They tried to save him in the hospital for a day, but could not. He is the only one who did not run and fought to the end.

    I completely agree! At the meeting of Shoigu and Assad, most likely the issue of ceasefire was discussed with the heads of local administrations and commanders of paramilitary groups! Perhaps they also discussed a plan of action in cases of direct bombardment of Assad’s troops in Syria!

    It's just that defense ministers do not "suddenly" fly, especially into a combat zone. And they do not negotiate with the presidents. It seems that this is a hint from Matrasia that the rhetoric should be lowered, and God forbid, which is not muddied. The situation is also acute near Aleppo. In short, there is something to discuss!

    Since it was announced in March that the goals set for the Aerospace Forces in Syria were fulfilled, the current visit can be interpreted as a proposal for Assad to get out of the situation, Assad needs guarantees for the Alawites, in general, an interesting chain of events, in my opinion, is a statement in America about the bombing Syria, a statement at the economic forum in St. Petersburg "... America is a great power. Today, probably, the only superpower. We accept it. Vladimir Putin," Shoigu's visit to Syria ... we'll have a look

    The frames of the visit allowed us to see a lot of interesting things. I draw your attention to a visit to the control center at the air base, which was preceded by a report by the chief of staff of the group in Syria. Behind the monitors are lieutenant colonels who stupidly depict work, the drone route is on the map. Look, he flies and makes films. This information will be used later tomorrow for guidance of planes ... Now it’s operational that this is our modern army. What an amazing level of modern warfare ... I want to emphasize once again that the level of our combat information control, the level of interaction between information systems and weapons systems is about zero. Look, the enemy does not have aviation, there is no opposition, there is no air defense and electronic warfare equipment, and we can’t do anything, we can’t do anything. With advanced weapons systems, we are blind, we cannot translate their advantages into a concrete result. We completely lack real-time target designation. In short, there are weapons, and we cannot provide them with information support, target designation, except for spotters, there are no other real channels of direct interaction. Yes, we can detect stationary objects according to UAV information and destroy them the next day. But the maneuvering broads cannot be reached. Our army is not ready to conduct a modern war, it is not trained, it’s not adapted ... And we don’t need to pass off the intermediate successes of the war with the partisans, moreover, by the means of World War II, as enormous achievements. This is clear to any common sense man ... Yes, the United States and its coalition are fighting for ISIS, and their successes need not be referenced. Otherwise, the question immediately arises about your adequacy ...
