    Maybe that is why that runway at the refurbished airfield is being upgraded.

    Someone else wants to get some war fighting practice.

    F-4D/E would be great to see, once again, in action.
    It's a decent bomb truck and if remember correctly Iran has copied even some 1st generation Paveway LGBs.



    PS. Here's the IRIAF guidance pod and LGBs

    Yes great news, if its been taken ans situation stabilized. I didn't expect this to come so soon.
    Now the time is to advance the Pantsir and BuK-M to protect the Thermal power station coz this is now a legitimate target for the terrorists airforce.

    Nice. That area is a very tough terrain and its going to be slow progress. A dozen UCAVs buzzing over and taking out the small groups and TOW units would be good. IMHO.

    Iran gave its Su-22 what they had in decent condition to Syria at the end of 2014.

    At the end of the 2014 Iran decided to act and ordered the ten Su-22s to be partially disassembled and flown in Il-76s to Syria. At this point only the Su-22 fuselages had been completely overhauled and once arrived in Syria, the SAF and Iranian technicians completed the process. The first of these newly delivered Su-22s were viewed while bombing the town of Talbeesa, Homs Governorate, on the 9th of March 2015.

    http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htairfo/20150401.aspx

    they would likely use there Su-24 or F4 Phantom's

    Ahrar al-Sham claims to have downed a drone over Aleppo. Even tho they claimed its Russian Enix Aileron its way too big for that.

    Its most likely Skywalker X8, its not real UAV, more like fatass flying wing model. Question stays, who operated it.

    In this case it's not, they're mostly groupings of 2 what is the way the FSA have started their positional fighting since 2014. That grouping of 2 is common in most (insert 4 letters here) military structures out of foxholes of defensive position.

    I don't say it's evidence to who formed them, but you get the hunch.

    Also these are Iranians (iranian backed) in action (notice KLF rifle @ 1:57 & 3:32 + 1 shot Fajr-1 107mm Rocket launcher and camo)

    I'd say that 8 guys on a settlement is the standart the FSA has in permanence. It's like the checkpoint system the SAA uses (usually 10/12 people).

    However this time they were flanked, you can see body on 3:47 took a frag and bullets on the sam location and the three others were shot while trying to exit the positions. So the guys crept on them while the support group was pounding them in front.

    Reportedly, over the morning service of the ship found at a distance of about 1 km Turkish ship approaching the anchored IC "Clever" to starboard. Despite many attempts at "Clever", the Turkish seiner crew was not in radio contact with Russian sailors and did not respond to the special visual signals of the luminous semaphore and signal rockets.
    When approaching the Turkish Seiners with the Russian escort ship at a distance of about 600 meters, in order to prevent collisions of ships, while moving on the Turkish ship at a distance of a guaranteed neoregelia was applied to small arms.

    o Turks go for war? maybe they need to read Putin words first?



    http://special.kremlin.ru/events/president/transcripts/50892

    Vladimir Putin: regarding the strikes of the submarine. Of course, we should analyse everything that happens on the battlefield, how the weapons works. And "Gauges", and missiles X‑101, in General, have proven themselves very well. This new, modern and highly effective, we understand it now, precision weapons, and can be equipped as a normal warhead, and a special warhead, that is, with nuclear content.

    Of course, in the fight against terrorists does not need any, hopefully never will need. But in General, this indicates a significant move forward from the point of view of improvement of weapons and equipment, which arrives in the Russian army and the Navy.

    for me hopefully does not mean never ever, right?

    Syrian Warplanes Bomb Daesh Strongholds Across Homs, Aleppo, Hama

    The Syrian Air Force intensified its bombing campaign of Daesh positions across the provinces of Homs, Hama and Aleppo, Fars news agency reported on Sunday.


    http://sputniknews.com/military/20151213/1031691983/syrian-jets-bomb-daesh-positions-across-syria.html

    “The ISIL [Daesh] positions in Maheen and Quaryatayn in the Central Homs province came under several air attacks by Syrian bombers, inflicting heavy damage on the terrorists' sites,” FARS news agency reported citing sources as saying.

    Similarly, Khneifis and Hama province saw a heavy bombardment of the Daesh terrorists’ defense lines, resulting in the killing and wounding of many militants.

    “The Syrian air fleet also carried out combat flights over the ISIL [Daesh] centers in Ein al-Jamajmeh and al-Nejarah in the Northern Province of Aleppo, in which dozens of militants were killed or wounded and their military grid was also destroyed,” the sources said.

    At least 33 Daesh terrorists were killed in the Syrian air attack on the three provinces. Earlier reports said that the Syrian fighter jets conducted several combat sorties over Daesh centers in at least four key battlefronts in Homs province, and bombed them heavier than ever, FARS reported.

    The air attacks have paved the way for the country's ground forces to retake the towns and villages and move towards the ancient city of Palmyra.
