    Massive explosion in Idlib town today. Large number of Chechens apparently now dead. Initial reports of a car/truck/SVIED but now this, hence this thread. It was certainly a monster that an aweful lot of INTEL probably went into.

    Daytime picture. Now claims of two VBIEDs. Whatever caused it certainly did the job.

    EDIT: Photos not of same building, now I am confused! Could be two buildings came down in the blast.

    Russia says the US was behind those drone attacks in Russian base.

    So the US killed two Russian soldiers in Syria.

    Will there be a retaliation?

    No.

    In face of continued US aggression and provocations in the Middle East, Europe and elsewhere, what will Russia and the rest of the world do to confront this aggressor ?

    Will they sit idly by and let the US continue to do what it wants without consequences or will Russia and its allies finally act to confront , oppose, defy and necessarily defeat the aggressor?

    Hello, welcome to this thread, interesting is your lack of posts since you have been on the site and your lack of introduction in the Welcome thread as per Forum rules.

    Perhaps you could give us a source for that claim. Actually a couple of claims there.

    Russia will do smart thing and will look after their own interests and security and let Middle East, Europe and rest of the world look after themselves.

    If someone has issues with USA aggression then they should deal with it themselves.

    Russia has it's own stuff to do, days of USSR charity services are long gone, not that anyone ever shown any gratitude for it... (And why should they? Sheep are meant to be sheared)

    Probe the defenses with different approaches until you find a weakness you can exploit repetitively and make life hell + increase the cost. It's a no brainier. Not to mention great info for foreign eyes on a technical/tactical aspect. Thus when such interest intersect, cooperation is well, mutually beneficial and should be pursued....thus we have what we see.

    IMHO that does not look like mortar fire damage to me at all. Direct mortar hit even with 82 mm would do far more damage then seen in the picture, and indirect hit would look as large number of shrapnel holes. Pictures show only one apparently very small hole.

    Honesty I think horizontal stabiliser is some sort of collision damage, while hole in the side could be either small arms fire damage or stray fragment damage. In both cases they seem completely repairable. So far it seems original report of 7 aircraft destroyed is complete fiction. At worst it looks like 2 planes damaged, one in collision and one form fragments, and that's assuming those are picture are from Syria, not some random post soviet damaged equipment that could have happened anywhere during long service of Su-24.

    And how many Americans have been killed in Syria by Russian attacks or Russian supported attacks by Syrian forces?

    If you can't stand the heat stay out of the kitchen...

    Thats a very nice textbook case of how Russia has used aerial drones in the Syria campaign.  Instead of the US approach of fielding weaponised platforms, Russia uses them as recon assets to provide targeting to PGMs and artillery.

    Smart stuff!  russia

    BTW the 2nd hit was said to be the drone workshop where foreign specialists integrated high-tech systems into apparently home-grown amateur drones. Its hilarious that pro-Jihadi media "experts" discount foreign assistance and really think that local amateurs using off-the shelf electronics can build a small fleet of weaponised drones to fly the best part of 100kms in a loose formation and using a pre-prepared flight plan in an attempt to evade detection.

    The fail is in the average media consumer sap that thinks this drivel is plausible. Hey, I can build my own cruise missile too with off the shelf components!

    Then we have the schizophrenic response to Russian cruise missiles hitting targets 5000 km from launch point. There is shock and surprise.

    Really? Goat f*ckers can build them from off the shelf components with some tinkering, but Russia can't? There is no objective punditry ever presented
    in the NATO MSM. It is all low-grade propaganda BS.

    No way so swarm management,  embedded programming,  real time sat navigation, ballistic calculations are not taught in London/Paris mosquees? 

    Krasnopol hits on assembly shop? ugh those CIA operatives were a payback for 2 Russians?


    BTW Krasnopols IMHO also because Russian base is 24/7 surveiled by US, any take off might mean call back to operatives in assembly shop. Same with cruise missiles. But Krasnopol is a howitzer shot...

    Yes, no warning possible really... in fact you only know it is a krasnopol shot for the last 3-4 seconds or so when the laser is turned on.

    Soviet and Russian laser guided weapons don't use continuous laser marking like the western weapons do... generally a direct fire weapon has 1 second of lasing of the target before impact while indirect fire laser guided rounds have about 3 seconds of target marking so the rounds still have to be aimed at the target, but the target gets rather less warning of the attack.

    Unlike its US equivalent of copperhead the Krasnopol has an optical cap that protects its nose mounted optics so it is actually handled and loaded like a standard round. The optical cap is ejected in flight to the target so there is rather less chance of damage and less chance the operator can make a mistake like forgetting to remove the cap before firing.

    AFAIK even the French use that round in a 155mm calibre model that is compatible with French laser target markers.
