I count basically about 80/100 tubes a month starting from April 2014. Some have been captured (the most recent case was in Rityan where two TOW tubes were captured) some have been duds. Most of them fired with a lot of hits. Not all of them fatal or worthy, but who cares.

    There have been all sorts of TOWs (US invetory, KSA, Turkish, Jordanian etc). Supplies haven't stopped. After a very poor month of January, the TOWs have been back in February (already 20 fired in a week) mostly because the Turks have found another way to deliver them. Most intriguing is the number of TOWs in Souther Syria. Usually 6 a month, they've fired already 4 the first week of February.

    Jordan playing games?
    Jordan probably yes but maybe outside of the official mandate (?). But south is not bordered just by Jordan, Israel has been another $hit supporting terrorist inside Syria.
    Btw, hope none of the newer RPG-32 whose production/assembly started in Jordan with Russian assistance last year (?) or earlier do not find its way to the terrorists.

    Even with the Hashem the AFV tactical environment wouldn't change that much. The only supplemental threat would come from remote controlled ATGM's, like the Ukro-Belarussian Skiff/Baryer. Many want the Javelin but that's just silly. Ironically the Javelin is less conspicuous than the TOW.

    Intersting thing to note is that one guy right in front of the tank is in woodland camo heavily employed by SAA, but his hair is blonde.
    There are Syrian guys with similar blonde hair.

    There's also Syrians with red hair, there's also Syrians with blue eyes, like Bashar.

    I'm a Russian both parents green eyed and light hair, But I came out dark hair brown eyes. It's all in the facial structure and skin color.

    That's because nobody told him how the game was played before. Also the demand for "counterweights" is idiotic. Given the clusterfuck the Syrian Moderats are about, giving "weaponry" those guys can't operate, this means US people killing Russian people. Or NATO getting caught killing Russians.

    I let you deduct what's going to happen in fronts where NATO is currently deployed. "Taliban" from Buryatia, sporting ATGM's is going to be one funny sight for US soldiers. Before they die.

    I posted this in the Syria thread as most of it is relevant there. The last para makes more sense here. My highlight

    But more dangerous is Moscow’s statement that it has “strong grounds to believe that Turkey is preparing for a ground incursion into Syria”. The source comments, “Russia has red lines that it will allow no one to cross, Russia is preparing a strong Syrian military unit that will serve to repel any Turkish ground incursions, Damascus has the right to defend its borders, and will not stay silent anymore to any aerial violations of Syrian sovereignty, and is preparing for any ground offensive by the Turks with aerial bombardment and ground shelling. Russia considers any plane not operating within the US-Russia coordination agreement to be a threat and will be shot down, Russia has also taken further precaution by deploying the S-400 missile system, and has brought in Su-35 that is in service for the first time, and it has further upgraded the Syrians' MiG-29's in case they are needed to repel any Turkish advancements. The Kremlin wanted to send to Turkey a message that says any incursion by you will be met by force not diplomacy”.

    Running throughout that thing you'll notice the smug, unquestioned certainty that the West, and particularly the US, is morally superior to Russia and other official enemies. When you see that tell-tale word "humanitarian" bandied about so liberally, it brings on the gag reflex.

    I keep saying it, but this is the key propaganda self-delusion/insanity of the West. They can starve 500k children to death and call it "well worth it," organize and arm murderous lunatics, and slaughter hundreds of thousand for the sake of pipeline corridors, but they still would never even think to question the conceit by which they hold themselves the moral center of the world.

    The following video shows a possible malfunction (0:15 to 0:30) on the port inboard weapon carrier of an unidentified Su-35. The forward weapon release clip does not retract properly. That may explain the missing inboard missile on 05 which is seen taxying with 04 behind at 1:20.
