    But at least it is easy to bomb targets that are well exposed.

    Via Aldin. New map of Khanaser area. If correct good progress is being made eastwards in the north. Not quite like Rommel and his Afrika Korps tho' but then this isn't a full blown armour army.

    That's a real old one, near the beginning of the war if I recall correctly.

    A view of what is or is about to happen

    Now, with ISIS forestalled around Palmyra and Quraytayn, the Syrian Armed Forces are in position to conduct their highly anticipated desert offensive to reclaim this oil rich part of central Syria.

    Leading the way for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) are the prominent commanders of the Tiger Forces, Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan and Colonel Shady Al-Isma’el. Fighting alongside the Tiger Forces and the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division will be the powerful pro-government paramilitary factions: Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), Dara’ Qalamoun (Qalamoun Shield), the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions).

    In addition to the Syrian forces, a number of foreign groups are participating in the operations to liberate Palmyra, including Hezbollah (Lebanese), Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi), Liwaa Al-Badr (Iraqi), Liwaa Imam ‘Ali (Iraqi), and Kataebat Hezbollah (Iraqi).

    Overseeing all of the desert operations will be the military advisers from the Russian Marines and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

    The Syrian forces have already made several advances over the last few days; however, the main offensive has not begun yet. According to a senior officer from the Tiger Forces, the massive desert offensive is set to begin in the coming days, but it will be contingent on a number of environmental factors.

    The Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command and their allies have been planning for this offensive for a long time now; it is expected to be the largest military operation to take place during this brutal war.

    Just to add to those units mentioned, the 550th SAA Armored is operating to the north of Palmrya clearing the oil fields while the 81st, 120th SAA brigades and another Desert Hawk brigade are engaged in besieging Quraytayn. Force would equal at least a 2 division size.
    The Tiger Force with it's accompanying Cheetah forces are the elite Assault troops for the Syrian Army while the Desert Hawks are the elite recon and raiding units (closest to spetsnaz).

    Excellent stuff... Cool
    Let me say, one more so called Russi stuff without precision goes out of the window. In Indian forums there are so many so-called experts with favorite passtime of berating Russian hardware and things said about BM-21Grad is it being a "spray & pray" system.

    Can anyone estimate the range the rockets covered??
    How about the CEP from a single Grad launcher?

    The video shows a good concentration of fire to cover a wide area with very few blasts outside of the concentration. 2-4 more Grad launcher in the safe coordinates would have given much higher concentration.

    Still reports like this have gone waste when it comes to the reaching the vast majority of world viewers due to language barrier. Unfortunately all that the non-Russian speaking regions have from Russia in the form of visual media is a very low level English language news outlet. I dont know when will they improve and raise their standards or atlease try to achieve some standards...

    Anyone think there is some mischief going on inside Syria w.r.t to biological or chemical warfare by professional outside actors? Earlier also there were some reports about many SAA soldiers dieing of some uncurable diseases....I think I had posted that tweet sometime earlier.
