    Russian and foreign media in historical part of Palmyra
    On Thursday, a group of foreign journalists arrived in Palmyra for the first time since the city had been liberated by Syrian army from terrorists.
    There are 27 persons in the group from 11 countries, including Germany, Italy, Belgium, China, and Serbia.

    After watching last Mi-28 videos. Looks like they also are using 9M120F warheads - bigger blast than in videos with vehicles.

    definitively a rookie crew.. but Russia government told before that Syria will be the place to
    train their pilots . So it possibly ,only the less trained pilots are send to those easy operations
    to chase civilian cars at night trying to smuggle weapons into zones under siege by Syrian army.

    The lazer aim needs to be a bit off the target while the missile is traveling so the smoke trail do not blocks the camera film and in the final 1km /300 meters centered on the target.


    BTw.. anyone knows who build the ancient Ruins in Palmyra ,Romans? and what purpose those
    infraestructure had there?  Is crazy to think that Rome managed to control middle east at some
    point. should had been amazing to see those cities ,when they were brand new and recently build. because still today in modern times with all the technology we have, the arquitecture of 2,000 years ago ,still is impressive to see by today standards. the same goes for egypt. Is like in some areas humanity are improving but in others when it comes to art we are moving backwards in time. lol

    Vann, the ruins are from a mixture of civilizations, they range from Babylonian ruins, to Roman, and Greek, and to the Crusaders.

    the US buying arms from Bulgaria for Syria rebels

    http://www.janes.com/article/59374/us-arms-shipment-to-syrian-rebels-detailed

    If I were Putin I would supply 5.45 39 rather than 7.62 39 rounds to SAA. These are way nastier.
