    Wouldn't matter if the US gave them F-22s... the best they could hope for is to give Russia a bloody nose and that will likely result in a worse situation for them.

    They don't need lots of high tech weapons, what they need is to respect their new neighbours... Very Happy

    Israels relationship to its neighbours has many parallels with Russias relationship with Georgia, but in realistic terms Israel is much more of a bully than Russia is.

    Russia does not fly its aircraft all over Georgian airspace. It does fly over South Ossetian and Abkhazian airspace but that would be the same as Israelis flying over only captured land and they do more than that.

    Israeli incursions into other countries they suspect of having nuclear weapons programs also makes the comparison different as Russia really only entered actual Georgian territory in response to a Georgian attack. And even then they entered that territory to recover military material used against the new countries created by that conflict that was simply abandoned by the Georgian forces.

    The missiles the Russians sold to Syria will mean Israel will need to show Syria a bit more respect.

    Georgia will get more respect from Russia when Saakshvili is gone from power.

    South Ossetia War (7-12 August 2008). Photos and Videos

    Post  Agressor on Fri Dec 23, 2011 10:24 am

    Centre for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) has published new data on the losses of Russia in a five-day war in South Ossetia, August 8-12, 2008 - they were three tanks, armored vehicles and 20 aircraft and six. These data are presented in the article CAST "Loss of Russian military equipment" in an updated anthology "The tanks of August".
    "Russia's command and not released official figures on the losses of military equipment in the war. But the study of the available photo and video memories of war veterans and media materials, allowed to make an independent count" - said the CAST.
    So, during the fighting the Russians lost three tanks, one T-72B (M), a T-72B and one T-62. All of them were destroyed by the impact of fire. Significantly greater loss of at least 20 units suffered light armored vehicles. Is known about the loss of the conflict, Russian forces at least nine BMP-1, three BMP-2, two BTR-80, a BMD-2, three BRDM-2 and MT-LB. (Most of the lost APC came in peacekeeping battalions: the Russian and South Ossetian). Artillery, multiple rocket launchers, air defense was not lost, the article says.
    High losses were cars. In the Southern camp peacekeepers by artillery and tank shelling Russian peacekeeping battalion, which occurred on August 8, in the parking lot was destroyed almost all the motor-vehicle parked there - and it is not less than 20 units. During the fighting August 9 Georgian artillery fire destroyed ten truck GAZ-66 mortar batteries of the 135th and 693rd infantry regiments. Two trucks "Ural" were killed during the day on August 11 in a blow Georgian Mi-24 helicopters. A few more trucks were in serious traffic accidents.
    The fighting had been shot down six Russian aircraft: three Su-25, two Su-24 and one Tu-22M3. Even after the end of hostilities in South Ossetia, there was a plane crash, which lost two Russian helicopters - Mi-8MTKO and Mi-24.
    Russian Navy during the war losses of personnel or equipment damage from enemy fire was not.
    Official personnel losses accounted for 67 soldiers. Still listed missing Ledge sergeant and commander of the downed Tu-22M3 Colonel Alexander Koventsov.
    At the same time loss of the Georgian army was officially announced in 2008 and amounted to 170 manpower soldiers and 14 policemen were injured and 2 thousand people, says CAST.
    During the fighting, was completely destroyed by the navy of Georgia - two missile boats, and five patrol. Aviation losses were - three AN-2, three Mi-24 helicopters and one Mi-14.
    During the fighting had destroyed 15 tanks, burnt on the spot (Gori district) after fighting up to 20 tanks, 30 were taken by the Russian army as war booty.
    Army of Georgia lost during the fighting four BMP-2, three BTR-80 armored four "Cobra" (Turkey). 15 BMP-1U (upgraded in Ukraine) and two BMP-2 were taken as war booty.
    Georgian artillery had suffered losses as were destroyed during the fighting, four self-propelled 203 mm caliber "Peony", two "Dana" (Czech Republic). As the spoils of war the Russian army has a "Peony", two "Dana" and 20 self-propelled guns of various calibres.
    Besides the Georgian army has lost a large number of military transport vehicles (at least 30-40 One unit, freight and passenger cars)

    Hi Agressor, it is a forum rule that your first post is in the introductions and rules section.

    The idea is that you create a thread in there to introduce yourself and perhaps tell others a little about yourself so we know a little about you.

    Also a chance for us to welcome you to the forum... Smile

    You don't need to delete this thread, but an introduction would be appreciated.

    Regarding this thread you don't mention Georgian casualties in the attack on Poti.

    Also the suggestion of the loss of 2,000 Georgian civilians is a bit of a stretch isn't it, or are they referring to the South Ossetian civilians killed in the initial artillery attack and invasion by Georgia.

    Also as it is your thread are you including the resulting push by Abkhazian forces into Georgian held Abkhazian territory to reclaim lost land?

    BTW I also noted you called the Backfire lost a Tu-22M3, which is not strictly correct, it is actually a Tu-22MR, which is based on the Tu-22M3, but it is a recon SEAD type aircraft, whereas the Tu-22M3 is a long range strike/bomber aircraft.

    Picky I know, but technically the MR is the correct tool for the job, it just needed to be properly upgraded for the role, which was not the case.

    A Tu-22M3 on the other hand is a bomber that would be sent in later after the enemy air defence network had been dealt with.

    There are rumours that a new Su-34 that was not even in operational service at the time was used to jam the defences and locate SAM sites. There are other suggestions that Mi-9 ESM helos performed that role.

    Either way it seems they lost a Backfire and a Fencer because they underestimated their enemy... there is talk that one or two of the lost Frogfoot aircraft were own goals too.

    I have nothing against Georgia, South Ossetia or Abkhazia. The thread I created in order to describe the loss of the parties in the fighting equipment, put an end to speculation and to dispel some myths. I own a large volumes of information and if you will allow me to continue, you will learn many interesting things. your opinion?

    You are most welcome to continue with this thread, and I was not questioning your motives.

    It is however a forum rule that before you start posting in this forum that you post an introduction thread in the "Member introductions and rules", and I am asking nicely that you follow that rule. I have not prejudged you... the fact that you are here suggests we have a shared interest in Russian military stuff, and I look forward to hearing your view on a range of topics.

    The relevant section is here:

    http://www.russiadefence.net/f6-member-introductions-and-rules

    I look forward to reading the information you have on the conflict in 8 8 8 and discussing it with you, as information is not widely available, and as you mention there are plenty of myths regarding what happened.

    I think it's abig loss in aircrafts.!

    I agree, but we need to keep in mind that this was a surprise attack that unfolded rapidly during the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Bejing.

    I think the thing that helped Russia is that Georgias treatment of South Ossetia made it unpopular in North Ossetia, and there was a general animosity between the Chechens and the Georgians, so rather than taking a week or so to form up a ground force to go and deal with Georgia, I think there were plenty of volunteers from North Ossetia and Chechnia that were more than willing to go and fight the Georgians... the Russian force was made largely of volunteers with an axe to grind so to speak that were well motivated.

    If they had been the aggressor and had been performing recon missions to examine the Georgian forces they might have spotted the BUK and other dangerous forces early and would only likely have lost Frogfoot aircraft.

    With an upgrade of the Frogfoot to add the President-M self defence suite they might not have lost any aircraft at all, as the system includes DIRCMs which would have defeated the MANPADS that brought them down.

    Well they are upgrading all of their Frogfoot aircraft, they are introducing UAVs to improve recon, and the introduction of the Su-34 should greatly improve their electronics capabilities as well as their ability to strike targets.

    They did use Tu-22M3s for bombing as shown by this photo:

When landing on a platform near the town of Java hurt Mi-24 helicopter, standing on the ground that led to catastrophe. Mi-8MTKO crashed and caught fire. Killed Alexander Burlachko mechanic, the other three crew members were seriously burned. As a result of fire or explosion of munitions 8MTKO Mi-and Mi-24 were completely destroyed.

    It's a pity. He had a lot of potential.

    From all accounts, I understand that out of the six or seven Russian aircraft lost in the war, only two were shot down by Georgia. The rest were due to friendly fire from Russian forces on the ground using mostly MANPADS. I'm guessing that these quite high losses were due to lack of a proper Command & control system, especially between the AirForce and the troops on the ground. Yes?

    6-7 is a little high.

    AFAIK there was the Tu-22MR, a Su-24 of unknown type (could have been the strike model or possibly the recon or jammer model), and 3 Su-25s, with quite a few Su-25s landing with one engine severely damaged.

    Considering that the Georgians claimed they moved their forces into South Ossetia in response to Russian aggression, I would not believe a single thing they say.

    Not to say I believe everything the Russians say of course... the first victim of war is often the truth.

    From what I have read the Frogfoot aircraft were operating low as normal to spot and engage ground targets with unguided weapons.

    The Tu22MR and the Su-24 on the other hand would not be flying low as they recognised the main threat to aircraft were MANPADS.

    The aircraft I mentioned above that were shot down were shot down because the BUK has a large 70kg warhead, while the Su-25s that were damaged and returned to base were hit by MANPADs.... likely Groms and Iglas.

    I am sure agressor might have been interesting to chat to on this and perhaps other topics, but he had completely the wrong attitude.

    When asked to comply with the forum rules and post an introduction he obviously lost his temper and sent an abusive PM to RP. I am an easy going guy, but that is just not acceptable.

    Perhaps with a break of two weeks or a month he might think about what he has said and done and with a sincere apology to Russian Patriot might get unbanned... that is totally up to Vlad.

    He has obviously spent a lot of time putting the above posts together and I was rather looking forward to discussing them with him, but his behaviour was childish and insulting and couldn't be ignored.

    I mean ask yourself... was posting an introduction really that hard?

    Of course he might just never come back... it is up to him ...and Vlad of course, I think a cool down period, plus a sincere apology and a promise to follow the rules might satisfy Vlad.

    Just from his posts I can tell agressor is likely Russian, so it would be useful to have him, but again there is no place for people who don't follow the rules and abuse Mods.

    Anyway... here is a pic:

    To the best of my knowledge Russian aircraft losses were, 1 Tu-22M, two Su-24 and three/four Su-25. Thats just what I heard, I'm happy to be wrong.

    As for Agressor, if he's in a repenting mood, I say give him another chance.

    Are those Humvees captured from the Georgians?

    Sorry, I don't think it is appropriate to discuss this sort of thing on the forum... this is not a democracy, and I am not prepared to give you all the details of what was said by whom.

    I think we should just leave it at things were said in anger, so a cooling off period has been imposed. The door is not closed and bolted and then bricked up, but a serious and sincere apology and attitude change needs to occur before that kid is allowed to come and play in this toyshop again.

    There are no rights to be here, Vlad makes the rules, and in this case aware of the facts that I am aware of I agree with the decisions made.

    No more discussion about this please, I only posted this because I felt other members needed an explanation... this will not become a public discussion for all the same reasons that trial by media is bad.

    Back on topic, I had heard mention of two Su-24s, but had not heard confirmation of the second from the Russians.

    Back on topic, I had heard mention of two Su-24s, but had not heard confirmation of the second from the Russians.

    To the best of my knowledge, the first Su-24 was shot down on the morning of August 9. It was apparently brought down by Grom MANPADS. The incident was recorded on camera, so it's pretty much undisputed.

    The second Su-24, was shot down on the morning of August 11. It was apparently shot down by a Russian convoy en route to Gori using MANPADS (a friendly fire incident). The only solid evidence is the wreckage which ended up all over the S.Ossetian mountains.

    Thats the best I can find. I got it by checking and cross-checking various accounts (some pro-Russian versions claimed just one Su-25 was lost, while the more anti-Russian ones preposterously claimed that as many as 15 aircraft were downed). I just narrowed it down to the six or seven incidents which appear in most reports.
