    Russia and Syria created a unified air defense system on the territory of the republic

    A unified air defense system (air defense) was created in Syria thanks to the efforts of Russian and Syrian military specialists. Major-General Sergei Meshcheryakov, chief of staff and deputy commander of the Air Force of the High Command of the Air and Space Forces, said at the international military technical forum "Army-2017" during the round table, which is devoted to the discussion of the Syrian experience. TASS

    At present, a single integrated air defense system has been created in Syria. Information and technical interface of Russian and Syrian airspace reconnaissance equipment was provided. All information about the air situation from the Syrian radar stations arrives at the command posts of the Russian grouping of troops
    - he said.

    The Russian air defense grouping in the area of ​​the airfield Khmeimim includes a radio engineering battalion, a battery of the Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile and gun system and S-400 surface-to-air missile systems.

    In the zone of destruction of anti-aircraft missile systems are all air targets in a radius of up to 400 km at altitudes up to 35 km
    - said Meshcheryakov.

    Also, the Russian Federation deployed systems to protect against unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and their defeats in Syria, chief of the department for construction and development of the system for the application of the UAV of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Major-General Alexander Novikov, said on Friday.

    In order to effectively combat unmanned aerial vehicles, a system has been created in the points of the Russian Armed Forces in Syria, including detection subsystems, warnings about flights of unmanned aerial vehicles, radio electronic suppression and fire destruction
    "Novikov said at a roundtable at the" Army-2017 "forum.

    According to him, the subsystem includes air defense assets, EW assets, air surveillance systems. The Major General said that the defeat of drones is carried out by special calculations using small arms.

    Thanks for those two posts Franco.

    It is becoming clear just how deep into the Russian military the 'training operation' in Syria is penetrating. This must be hugely valuable to their current leadership. This is experience that just cannot be emulated without an actual war. The actual cost in roubles must make this one of the best investments they have made over the past 10 years.

    The US decision start a process to overthrow Assad back in 2013 is looking increasingly disastrous on a whole multitude of fronts.

    Strikes of the Russian Air Force on the IGIL in the Deir-ez-Zor region allowed the Syrian aircraft to continue the offensive

    08/28/2017. After the successful offensive actions of the Syrian troops with the support of Russian military security services in the area of ​​Ganem Ali, the IGIL fighters are trying to regroup and prepare fortified areas near the settlement of Deir ez Zor.

    Realizing that a bridgehead around Deir ez-Zor is the last bastion of international terrorists on Syrian soil, the rebels being moved heavy weapons, including tanks and road vehicles with large-caliber weapons and mortars.

    During the night and today, Russian VKS continued to successfully attack the targets of IGIL, destroying 4 tanks, 16 high-cross-country vehicles with heavy machine guns, 6 heavy vehicles with ammunition, and 2 fortified areas with artillery positions.

    Effective actions of the Russian military security services allowed the Syrian government forces under the command of General Hasan Suhel to continue the offensive along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River to Deir ez Zor with the aim of releasing it.

    No, it was just a post with the picture. Those trucks seem to be all round Syria now with the Russian police operation spreading.

    The US seems to be keen on the idea of using US equivalent trucks as squad cars all over the USA. Crazy.

    A salvo from the new Kilo's next?

    A Russian warship in the Mediterranean Sea has fired a salvo of Kalibr cruise missiles at a group of jihadists stationed near the city of Deir ez-Zor in western Syria, the Russian military reported. The targeted militants were mainly from Russia and countries of the CIS.

    The frigate ‘Admiral Essen’ of the Russian Black Sea fleet fired the missiles on Tuesday morning, a statement by the Russian Defense Ministry said. The barrage destroyed a communications center, weapons depots and a repair workshop used by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants, it said.

    “The missile strikes supported the advance of Syrian government forces, and have foiled the plans of the ISIL militants to regroup and strengthen terrorist positions near the city of Deir ez-Zor,” the ministry said.

    Damascus forces supported by Russian warplanes are currently trying to lift a years-long blockade of the provincial capital Deir ez-Zor. Moscow says that the success of the operation would amount to a strategic defeat of the terrorist group in Syria.

    The ‘Admiral Essen’ is one of Russia’s most modern warships, the second of the Admiral Grigorovich class to set sail. It carries 8 vertically-launched Kalibr cruise missiles and previously fired them at IS forces in May and June.

    The 'surround and digest' policy moves forward. Is this standard 'Warsaw Pact' tactics?

    Don't worry about that, everything is normal, you aren't seeing what you think you are seeing, probably the camera lens was dirty or maybe it had a flaw in it. Yeah, that's it, the camera lens had a flaw which gives the photo some silly shadows. Nothing to see here, move along now, just move along.

    Read this article this morning: Most Russians Do Not Back Putin's Syria Operation As Death Toll Mounts

    I really don't give a shyte about Newsweek and MSM propaganda outlets but it says the poll was conducted by two agencies, and focuses on the Levada Center results. I wasn't under that impression. Why wouldn't Russians support their military involvement here in Syria? Would they rather fight Islamic militarism in their own cities and streets? As far as I am aware, the majority die-hard fanatics and crazies over there come from Russia and ex-soviet states lying on its border. Why not deal with them on the Syrian front rather than having them fester at home? Would be interested to hear from any of the native Russians on the forum here comment on this.

    PS. as an added bonus:

    I am usually first one to be pissed off about Russians getting killed in Syria but using phrase ''Death Toll Mounts'' is horseshit.

    Overall death toll has been slightly larger per year than among standard beat cops back home.
    Would be even lower had SAA been more competent but they are at least getting some serious results finally.

    As for mercenaries, RIP to them but they knew full well what their line of work entailed, better than anyone here ever will.
    It's how the game is played. Big money but big risks as well, tale old as time.

    Toll could have been as bad, for serving soldiers at least, if they had just been training back home.
