    Does anyone have any specification about the military equipment the Russians intend to send?

    YAK-130 and S-300 are well known as for others we can only speculate. Probably Iskander too.

    I think they need help with their Air Force, so I could see them upgrading Su 25 and Mig 29(which some have already happened). The biggest thing that Syria needs is intellince and that is where I think Russia I'll help them. Russsia will likely send them other things like tanks(t 72), ammo and weapons and political suppport.

    Syria doesn't have Su-25's they have Su-24 which some have been upgraded to M2, they also have Mig-25 but no Su-25 but Su-25 would come in real handy right now for Syria. All their aircraft will need maintenance and could do with some upgrading, if somehow Russia could sell them Su-25 they would come in pretty handy. Another thing Syria is in desperate need of is well trained men on the ground,

    not sure who exactly but just stating that they need them, i suppose more Iranian republican guard would help, also one thing i have noticed here in the UK is the amount of people saying they want to get rid of ISIS but also think that the west supporting rebel/terrorists is wrong, you maybe Syrian army should start excepting volunteers from where ever just like the rebels and ISIS do, so on the back of this i dont doubt there is people around the world who would be willing to fight for the Syrian army/national defence.

    i am not sure if they could or not, not sure what sanctions have been imposed on the country and what Russia has agreed to, but if they did i am sure highly trained Russian soldiers would turn the tide in favour of the Syrian government, if they did the west still wouldnt send any troops as there is too much opposition from politicians and the public about sending boots on the ground, they wont even send them into Iraq.

    Sending troops to Syria would be pretty unpopular in Russia too.

    The company that makes those drones could easily be selling them commercially, and flight testing in a real combat zone would allow it to mature more quickly and at the same time help out an ally.

    Nothing improves combat performance like combat experience...

    From Sputnik Arabic - seems that Russia send 6 out of 8 MiG-31 to Syrian Air Force thumbsup

    LINK

    Hopefully this implies that S-300 could be delivered soon too.

    Just being pedantic, the man at MiG said that they had not supplied them. The Russian MoD has not, AFAIK, commented on whether ex RuAF planes have been sent.

    More BMP's and add in technical engineers with older T-55/62 tanks and convert them to heavy IFV's to make them effective. Maybe helicopters too and Su-25's and 24's. Syria needs what they can get. I think it is high time too to build a wall, separating syrian army controlled areas from the rest. And any pockets of resistence inbetween, deal with them.

    Russia needs to send more to help Syria.

    S-300 for Syria

    Why is Russia not providing Syria with S-300 or similar?

    It is a forum rule that you post an introduction in the rules and introductions section, please do so now.

    In answer to your question, the S-300 is not a magic weapon... the use against the US or Israel would only lead to an escalation that they can't win.

    Much more useful would be small arms and ammunition and other kit like protective vests and armour and Su-25 like aircraft and hopefully UCAVs.

    It is obvious to me that the US and Israel are taking profit in the area from the fact that the opposed countries have not enough modern air defense. The development of the air defenses in the countries of the area would be bad for both countries and they would have little to do against it. Siria still is one of the coutries that have some air defense, if not the US and other countries would be using their air forces like they did in Libia and Irak.

    T-72's fall into the prefabricated housing category. True story, that's one of the export certificates from Ukraine to Nigeria.
