    just wanted to get peoples views of possible hot air being broadcasted about China getting involved in with Russia in the crisis in Syria although in the media it does not state what sort of support this would be military or something else.

    Also from Reuters today saying Putin talks of 'next phase' in Syria military operation, quoted as saying

    "Moscow's military campaign in Syria to date has not achieved enough and a next phase is needed, Russian news agencies quoted President Vladimir Putin as saying on Friday.

    "Our objectives are being fulfilled, and fulfilled well," the RIA Novosti news agency quoted Putin as saying during a video conference with military officials.

    "But for now that is not enough to cleanse Syria of rebels and terrorists and to protect Russians from possible terrorist attacks," he said.

    "We face a lot of work and I hope that the next phases will be conducted at the same high level, as professionally, and will produce the result we expect."

    Syrian Army Advances as Russia Intensifies Air Strikes in Region - Media

    The legitimate Syrian army advanced in an offensive Saturday, reclaiming two mountains and an armory depot near the town of Mahin in the country’s province of Homs, after Russian jets reportedly intensified attacks on ISIL in the area.

    http://sputniknews.com/middleeast/20151122/1030521158/Syrian-Army-Advances-Russia-Intensifies-Air-Strikes.html

    Russian bombers on Saturday conducted more than 70 airstrikes against militants in Syria, Xinhua reported, citing pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV.

    According to the report, Russian aviation has "intensified" its strikes, hitting Jihadists’ positions next to the ancient city of Palmyra, near the town of Mahin and the al-Shaer oil field in the East of Homs Province. After that Syrian army managed to regain two mountains and an arm depot in the Mahin area, the report declared.

    Moreover, Syrian forces succeeded in recapturing large parts of al-Zahiyeh mountain located in the countryside of the country’s western coastal city of Latakia due to the prolific work of Russian bombers, amid activists’s reports of mass displacement from the area in the direction of Turkish border.

    The attacks are being carried out as a part of intensified air campaign aiming to destroy ISIL positions in several areas around Syria.

    Russia started its anti-ISIL operation in Syria in late September, after an official request from the war-torn country’s authorities. Since then, the Russian effort to hit ISIL positions across the country, has been praised by state officials as providing serious assistance in combating the militants.

    Russia intensified the airstrikes recently to assist Syrian forces in combating ISIL and other militant organizations in countries key areas, sucah as Latakia countryside, Aleppo and Homs, Xinhua concluded.

    Certain percentage always does but it is still within parameters. This is why it's 2 missiles per target.

    Good score any way you put it, prospective byers will be satisfied. Cool

    So far,this is first evidence of a cruise missile apparently failing in Iran. But, lack of a proper crater still brings questions. That said, the last ones claimed were never proven. So there is possibility someone in Iran is purposely spreading false information.

    1 failed cruise missile over a total of how many launches? Track record is good. Unless you believe the bullshit our Iranian member is spreading.

    Do you have evidence of the last 4 that apparently failed yet?

    Looks also like Iran will have the real deal to compare with the Ukrainain bought variant they used for their own tactical CM's.

    Also it looks like it pancaked, this is one drop launched by the TU95's. so basically it just never ignited. Not safe for the locals to handle it.

    It is all about sending a message.

    My observation :


    The previous 26 missiles launched from the Caspian Sea (gently hinting at the 26-th US President Theodore Roosevelt) caused the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt to be immediately pulled out of the Persian Gulf.


    Yesterday's 18 missiles have a special meaning as well.


    Charles de Gaulle was the 18-th President of France and, what a coincidence, the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle is on its way to Syria.



    Funny isn't it ? Cool

    Engine looks external, as far as I can tell. While both X555 and X101 have it integrated.

    Definately not Kh-101 due to shape of warhead. Possibly Kh-555 but huge chance it was Kh-55 due to external engine.

    Not a single photograph, like with the Russian invasion force in east Ukraine. Everyone and his dog has a cell phone that can film these
    cruise missiles in flight but nobody can take a photo/video when they crash. Yeah, right.

    Kh-55, Kh-55SM, Kh-555, and Kh-101, all, have engines in nacelles that get lowered into the airstream.

    I thought the X555/101 had only the air intake popping out at launch.

    Follow the discussion before giving worthless advice.

    The US had 15% cruise missile duds during its 1999 attack on Serbia. It claimed the exact same failure rate during
    the initial salvo of Russian cruise missiles from the Caspian. Not a single photograph was produced. Yet here we
    have all of this fine photography. So I call BS on anyone claiming that the the US propaganda had any legitimacy.

    So now we have evidence of one dud and we can estimate the rate to be under 1%. Perhaps for this particular
    cruise missile model the failure rate is much higher. This is good field experience which Russia will use to evaluate
    its arsenal and make corrections.

    You're still stuck on the previous alleged 4 failed cruise missile landed in Iran ? Everyone knows it's a PR drivel without proof . He posted 2 pages back claiming missile failed with some genuine pictures this time.

    Reports of Russia deploying an artillery unit in Homs province to help SAA. Apparently SAA does not know how to use artillery at all, which explains why SAA has been unable to beat some rag tag rebels. As proven in Donbas, artillery is king.

He has yet to prove the first failure which he has not, then it would make is claim that another failed invalid. It would mean that this is first failure (and 1 missile at that). As well, his map shows that Syria lost territory after Russian strikes which we all know that is wrong. Unless all we are fed of victories for saa were false.

    Foreign Spy Drone lol1  Crashes in Southern Iran



    TEHRAN (FNA)- A foreign reconnaissance drone has crashed in Southern Iran, local officials announced on Saturday.

    The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) crashed in a region near the city of Shoush in Southwestern Khuzestan province on Friday.

    No further details, including the origin of the drone, have been released yet, but officials said they will release more details about the incident in coming hours. The security forces are investigating the crash.

    That's a  missile not an  UAV lol1


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Drone that crashed in Iran was not foreign lol1 : Official


    A drone crashes near the city of Shush in Iran’s southwestern Khuzestan Province on November 20, 2015.
    An Iranian official has denied reports that an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that had gone down in Iran’s southwestern province of Khuzestan came from abroad.

    http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/11/21/438567/Iran-drone-shush-khuzestan-Nejati



    Now they're saying it was in fact an Iranian drone.

    Official: No Cruise Missiles  lol1  Fired from Iran's Territorial Waters at Terrorists in Syria​


    "TEHRAN (FNA)- A military official dismissed media reports claiming that a number of Russian cruise missiles have been fired at the terrorists' positions in Syria from Iran's territorial waters in the Caspian Sea.

    "No cruise missile has been fired at the terrorists' positions in Syria from Iran's territorial waters in the Caspian Sea or through Iran's air space," an informed official of the Iranian Armed Forces said referring to the Russian missile launch at terrorist targets in Syria from the Caspian Sea in recent days.




    Now these Officials are denying the whole things
