    America can readily give us all the "proof" that is needed if 7 jets were totaled.   Private high resolution satellite photography companies
    exist.   Syria is not overcast 24/7.  

    No, it is not a stock footage, it was shot in 2018, and they invited journalists from multiple channels who filmed that exact Su-24 that was on the photos, obviously with an intent to show that it is fine.

    The claim about 7 destroyed aircraft is obviously bullshit, most likely a few Su-24's were scratched and were repaired in a short time.

    Somehow:-|, they are within range of base. I agree with papas suggestion: buy out areas close to base and demolish them. Or start putting up military units in surrounding areas.

    Al Tofahyh village near Badma LatakiaCS
    Militias used to targeted Khmemeim AB and SAA positions from this village
    It was leveled to the ground this morning by RuAF
    This area contains no civilians.

    Village is on turkish border. Not really in range of base. But who knows what kind of connection is there with all those drones.

    Looks like these drone and rocket attacks are going to be a daily feature for a while

    ---

    Comments by a US general on the Russo-American shadow boxing over Syria

    Russia gained a 'treasure trove' of intelligence on the US's best fighter jets in Syria


    • A top US Air Force general says Russia is incorporating lessons from operating alongside US aircraft in Syria into its training.
    • Russian jets and anti-air systems in Syria have been able to practice tracking US jets, including the F-22, possibly eroding its stealth advantage.
    • But the US has been watching Russia too, and the US’s competitors still have a long way to go before negating its air supremacy.

    heh seems that Google translator have already proper dictionary used earlier on by CIA operatives in Syria Smile 


    BTW all that shit has two outcomes to me:

    1) perimeter was too close (Vasilok has range like 4km ...) 
    2) Pantsirs are doing helluva good job!

    Nah, they managed it with one of those contraptions they've been cobbling together with parts sourced from electronics catalogs, popsicle sticks and blobs of ear wax. They're regular takfiri Mac GuyVers.

    I would imagine, these small drones are being launched from somewhere close as well...

    Anyway, we have a new FSA "Alawite" group taking responsibilty for the attacks

    FSA Free Alawite Movement claim responsibility for the #Hmeimim drone attack taking out an S-400 Missile System, stating that #Russia will not be able to stay in #Syria for more than 6 more months, and promising “painful” days for them especially before Putin’s next election.

    Some dumbass on keypublishing forums posted this, which I believe is our member Karl here, cause both sound easily foolable. Anyway:


    As you can tell from the video, the firecracker shots are the extreme bombs blowing up S-400... Laughing

    4 drones shot down by pantsir. The guns doing the job this time. Video in link. The guns are best suited for drones. Maybe Russia could deploy zu-23 / ZOM1mounted on mt-lb etc nearer enemy front lines as a first line of defence. Could even train SAA/NDF if needed. Should be sufficient in dealing with homegrown drones. Or ship in some zsu-23-4 but the NDF did shot one down with AK-47 so even just a 4x4 armed with twin PKM or twin NSV might be enough.  Just a thought

    Looks like well prepared coordinated PR campaign by USrael regimes. For people to doubt in what Russian military say. To doubt about Russian arms. And to blame Iranians/Assad for everything. 

    The Syrian army lost five brigadier generals in a few days

    January 7, 2018, 11:43Text: Sergey Guryanov
    Syrian government troops lost five generals in Haras in the last week, military analysts said.

    Over the past few days, Brigadier General Haider Hassan, nicknamed Gepard, who was seriously wounded in battles for the armored vehicles base, Ibrahim Yunus Dabrah, Habib Mahrez Yunis, commander of the "Palestinian Liberation Army", and Ali Diopa, commander of the 138th Tank Battalion of the Republican Army Guard, according to the Telegram-channel WarJournal .

    Harasta is located near Damascus. Note that on January 2, the Syrian government troops installed state flags on the heights of Tulul al-Humur after the end of the operation against terrorists in the western part of the suburb of Damascus.

    Yup here you got both sounds and tracers from Pantsir 1s gun action... different pattern of shooting, different tracers. Check from 40s

    I guess larger caliber with packs of tungsten balls can be more efficient for small and verba/pantsir for larger.

    Amazing what people spot or remember. Looks like the air defences were getting ahead of the game last Autumn.

    I noticed you been posting a lot of stupid bullshit from stupid bullshit websites? Care to explain yourself?

    As a note: kadyrov cannot act internationally beyond what federal laws allow. In other words, he isn't acting beyond what Kremlin agrees to. The rest is media sensation bs.

    I post stuff that I think some on here might find interesting, especially background stuff that I find in my travels on the web, in this case you are clearly not one of them. I do not categorise sites so "stupid bullshit websites" is a meaningless phrase to me.

    Just put me on ignore.

    Actually, if you contribute to the Gish Gallop of anti-Russian propaganda, then you ain't so squeaky clean.

    The proper procedure is for all NATO propagandists to be banned from this site.   NATO maggots have plenty of other boards and the whole
    western MSM to spread their hate drivel.
    If that was aimed at me perhaps you could be a bit more specific about my anti Russian propaganda?

    It is so clear your role here since a lot of time. Last example is you finding all the shit on this, but posting nothing about the defeat of the rebels in the Bayt Jinn area.

    No it's fucking not. John has been reliable poster from way back MP.net days, much longer before you even knew where Syria or the Ukraine are and before anyone heard about your stupid fanboy ass. 

    So show some fucking respect you ignorant little pisshead.
