    Everything in Aleppo is speeding up now! SAA is in Ramouseh district now. Some reports claimed SAA took over most of the district, while the clashes still ongoing. It seems that jihadi defense in and around Aleppo collapsed. SAA took today Mushrifah.

    SAA is advancing fast in Aleppo, it's only a matter of time, when SAA will take over Khan Touman and Rashidin.

    Khan Touman is vital for the defense of Southern Aleppo!

    Thanks to russian specialists!!! russia thumbsup Without their help would SAA rotate in circles.

    Happy Days... Very Happy May Aleppo's future be resplendent with the fetid corpses of Wahhabi goat-fuckers slowly festering in the sunshine of a jihadist-free future.

    After a bottle of 2011 Cab Shiraz and many glasses of grappa with good friends, I am only too happy to call a toast to the downfall of these filthy bastards. Laughing

    Excellent success od SAA in Aleppo front. It seems, that jihadist division is broken now, as they sent around ten thousand jihadist from other fronts to break the siege and to defend the corridor. I wonder if jihadists could take another similar number of terrorists from other fronts for another Aleppo breaking or will this make other front too vulnerable for SAA offensives. Anyway, Obama's terrorists were greatly defeated and receive large losses, which will have big strategic impact on situation in Syria.

    Iranian, Syrian commanders meet to discuss upcoming Aleppo offensive
    Syrian Civil War: News #9 - Page 21 Crs2BdbVIAArpWz
    Major General Qassim Suleimani, the commander of Iran’s elite “Quds Force,” made a secret trip to southern Aleppo on Tuesday in order to discuss the upcoming large-scale offensive with his counterparts in the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

    Among the many people that met with the Iranian general on Tuesday, Major Duraid Abu ‘Ammar of the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” was likely his most important meeting.

    Major Abu ‘Ammar is considered one of the highest ranking officers in the Tiger Forces and one of Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan’s (leader of the Tiger Forces) most trusted commanders.

    According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Tiger Forces commander and Iranian general discussed the upcoming offensive’s battle plans.

    For the first time in this war, the commanders of the Tiger Forces and Iranian military advisors are coordinating a wide-scale offensive in the Aleppo Governorate that is geared to retake a large chunk of territory from the jihadist rebels.

    While several Syrian Arab Army units fight alongside Hezbollah and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), the Tiger Forces were one of the few that did not directly coordinate with the latter.

    No official date has been set for this southern Aleppo offensive; however, it is expected to start in the coming weeks, as the Tiger Forces and Republican Guard conclude their operations near Al-Ramouseh.

    Baby don't hurt me...no more.

    This Syrian war is really showing that WW3 was going to be a fucked up affair for tankers. Damn Konkurs tearing up through SABRA mod for M60 like it was nothing.

    Also 3 dead and 4 wounded.

    One tank brewed the other one was badly damaged. Here's thinking what could have happened in 2003 had the Iraqis had decent stocks of ATGM's.

    Actually a lot of people have been going in. Every one you need (Iranians, Russians, Hizb) have decided they need Aleppo. So they are getting Aleppo.

    Meanwhile Turkey is going on with its plan to "attack" ISIS and kill Kurds. So right now everything is going well. It is time to clean Damascus and then start slicing Hama. 2016 looks like a good, good year.

    What's up with those Syrian/Iranian generals that they drop like flies? It's already 3rd or 4th general killed this month.

    Arabs seem to use their generals alongside their front line units, with all the risks that such a strategy entails. Good for morale and consequently terrible for it when they inevitably drop dead.

    For those who do not know what they are doing, yes. But that video shows perfectly how to get killed in a tank, it is in fact the worst example of positioning tanks in combat I have ever seen, like a parade of ducks to shoot at a fairground. Turkish commander needs sacking immediately and that battalion needs withdrawing from combat for extensive training in how to use tanks, and to learn what "hull down" means, or "using cover" or "fire and maneuver" or "common sense".

    Sending high ranking officers to the frontline serves no purpose and is a trendemous waste of men with invaluable staff experience (you can't fight wars with just captains, lieutenants and sergeants).

    Another 1,000 plus Syrian Marines complete 6 months training and equipping from the Russians. This will change some battle front.

    Maybe, but it is not new, that is the way the Iranian forces operate and is the way armies used to fight before the bloating of the higher ranks due to bureaucracy. Their command structure must be designed to absorb these events. Maybe their military is divided into 'action' and 'paperwork' activities much more than Western militaries. I know many senior officers who really do not want to be sat behind desks, they miss the 'sharp end' with all its risks.

    Yeah: ride on a M60. Guaranteed BBQ.

    No seriously...it's impossible to get a well protected position in this war because the numbers are too small and the terrain too hostile.

    Northern Syria= Bald plains or medium sized hamlets with great kill funnel (we all have seen those nasty ATGM shots all war long).
    Southern Syria...Desert.
    Eastern Syria Desert and small hamlets...
    Western Syria Huge ass ridge impossible to attack with mechanized forces without getting pieced.

    The tactical advantage that ISIS and the beardies have on such troops is that they don't need to disguise their vehicles or have a huge footprint, they can wait until the Mech force needs to halt to assess the progress. Kurds hit the Turks exactly like that. ISIS ddin't do it differently. The Turks and Syrians do...because those are force multipliers. Also hull down means nothing in this case, the ATGM hit the turret on the first tank which started cook off. Second tank was hit on the trapshot ERA which eased off the penetration. Still 4 wounded (driver is critical according to twitter, tank's turret ring is fucked, 't was a miracle it didn't brew and I don't belive on "slight injury" from Turkish press).

    In this case unless they were sporting T90's/Leo2 they were goners anyway.
