    Interviews military expert, constant author of the magazine "Arsenal of the Fatherland", a specialist in the use of the Military Space Forces Alexei Leonkova

    Alexei Petrovich, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin called the unprovoked attack on a Turkish fighter Russian aircraft returns to base after the attack on the position of LIH, "stab in the back". Do you agree with this assessment?
    How can you argue with the president? But I think that he is also commonly understood meaning of this phrase, it meant an additional meaning. The analysis shows that the attack on the Su-24M2 Russian VKS was pre-planned by Turkey and its military partners. In this case, we are talking about the operation, "Backstab".
    Indeed, our plane is waiting in ambush Turkish interceptors on land located sabotage and reconnaissance groups, disguised as local Turkomans were previously imported crews CNN and FOX ...
    This is only a tactical software finals. The operation started much earlier. Throughout the period of the Russian VKS - Exploration of the NATO countries are not sitting idly by. The actions of our aviation was conducted by means of continuous monitoring of space, air and ground intelligence. In the attack he was involved in several complex reconnaissance and target - at least 3, and two F-16 with the latest missiles AIM-9X.
    How it all happened?
    US Air Force Boeing E-3 Sentry AWACS flew November 24 from an air base in Preveza in Greece. Second Air Force E-3A Saudi Arabia took off from an airbase Riyadh. Both aircraft carried out one common task - to determine the exact locations of aircraft videoconferencing Russia. They are also chosen "victim."
    American E-3A was to determine the mode of weapon control radar of the Su-24M2, to check whether it is able to search or seizure has already completed and accompanied by the goal, producing data for firing. It is known that can control the actions of AWACS aircraft in combat and transfer of avionics and aircraft information to the NCP of warfare.
    That is, to determine how helpless our plane?
    It turns out that, yes. As you know, the Su-24M2 was returning from a mission, and his NCP worked in the "navigation" in conjunction with GLONASS, he walked to the base and is not ready to take action. E-3 all the time passed details of the Su-24M2 pair patrol Turkish F-16CJ. This aircraft is specially produced for Turkey. Its feature is the presence of the computer, run the new radar AN / APG-68 and fulfill the role of co-pilot, navigator.
    But this information is not enough to enter the high-speed target. I used something else?
    Indeed, output precision fighter F-16CJ further provides ground-based US Patriot air defense, stationed in Turkey, or rather their multifunctional radar AN / MPQ-53. Patriot air defense system can work with the E-3 electronic reconnaissance satellites and MENTOR, it is possible that the satellite constellation was more SC "GEOSTAT."
    The flight path F-16CJ talking about precision output to the target by the method of triangulation: a pair of E-3A radar plus the Patriot air defense system plus RER MENTOR geostationary satellites, and possibly the SC "GEOSTAT."

    At the same time the E-3 was allowed to indicate where our aircraft in the air is determined by its train, speed, status of weapons control, radar air defense system Patriot conjunction with the satellite signals intelligence MENTOR provide telemetry Movement Su-24M2 to the ground - that is, gave an accurate forecast sector appearance of our the aircraft relative to the mountainous terrain.
    It turns out that Turkish fighter exactly know where our plane waiting in ambush?
    Of course. A pair of F-16CJ went to the area of ​​start-up and at a distance of 4-6 kilometers, almost at point blank range (!) Let the missile "air-to-air» AIM-9X Sidewinder in the rear hemisphere Russian bomber. This radar AN / APG-68 fighter jet launched a rocket operates on a "target illumination": Turn at start-up and shut off after the rocket firm grip and hit the target.
    I did our pilots the ability to save the plane?
    No. Chance to avoid defeat at the Su-24M2 crew were zero.
    Against missiles AIM-9X with a new matrix infrared seeker, the imaging target in the infrared range, and insensitive to heat trap, the Su-24M2 is no counter systems. His means of countering: BKO "Carpathians", the station warning radar illumination ACT-15C teplopelengator LO-82 to detect missile launches, the station posing jamming SPS-161, the device release chaff and false thermal purposes AMS-50 - can not confront new missile AIM-9X.
    And if there was support for the fighters?
    Now it will be. Of course, the tragedy could have been prevented pair of Su-30cm, have adopted BKO "Hibiny-In." But no one was waiting to strike back against an ally, especially warning about the details of the operation of our partner.
    You mean the "American partners", most of those who belong to the "Patriots" and "AWACS", as well as satellites, possibly involved in the operation?
    Yes, with a high degree of probability. No Turkey's own capacity for such meticulous and very precise work. And do not forget the second the E-3, assigned to the Air Force KSA. The whole scenario quite fleeting, the score went to second.
    Is everything went so smoothly?

    The Turks still make a mistake, because of the provocation which is not entirely successful. F-16CJ took to defeat late in 2 minutes, when the Su-24M2 has already left the station 68 km disputed territory in northern Syria (its flight it took 1.5 minutes maximum). Team "defeat» F-16CJ not canceled, so the missile launch was carried out a little further calculation point. This is confirmed by the fact that shooting the fall of the Su-24M2 was planned as from the territory of Syria, and with Turkey, but "Syrian" pictures in more detail. It seems that it saved and our navigator. He was able to go to the "Zelenka" and wait for the search party there.

    wow if anything of that is true this is really Serious Shocked

    So the whole attack on the SU-24 was directed completely by the americans using a
    lot of military hardware? 2x awacks planes ,Patriots defenses help and 2 F-16s.. and
    Turkey role all they had to is launch the trigger. So it was a complete setup.. even CNN/fox managed to quickly get into the zone. and for sure they were already there. before the plane was attacked. this is really serious.. this is an act of War of United States on Russia and Turkey
    if proven true.

    This should explain why Americans moved all its aircraft carriers from Europe and middle east
    and have them in defense position most of them in eastern coast and western of US mainland.
    So they knew that a major event will happen.. and did not wanted to be near in case
    Russia retaliates at them. Not good.. No

    and proper response should be to shut down the 2 Awacs used for the operation with all its
    crew.. and nuke the nato base in Turkey..and bomb the airport used for the 2x F-16 to take off. Smile

    A little extreme.. but Russia needs to make sure all the world knows what really happened.
    and how US attacked Russia for bombing Terrorist in the border of Syria. SInking also a warship or nuclear ballistic submarine of americans could do the job too. .as retaliation.. So the exceptional pentagon knows they have been exposed and Russia is ready to truly use lethal force against them if attacked.

    I wonder if it's true..


    Just lies.. like the previous attack..

    that artillery at best range is 30km.. and Russian base is like 50km away.
    and with the precision of that thing ,it will not hit anything even if the base was 30km away.
    they will need a team of terrorist at visual vistance of the base to correct the strikes..

    That artillery neither cannot survive in open terrain.. Russia have lost of planes..and any artillery deployed that manage to reach Russia base.. will be neutralized.. ie.. the terrorist cannot move
    fast with that thing.. it will take at least half an hour of that artillery to be deployed to a safe zone.. Russian planes can reach 30 km in just seconds. So it will be suicide that attack in the open. it will be like holding a Huge Sign saying "Bomb me". IS FAKE.. just like the previous
    rocket video attack.

    I use various sources consisting of news sites and social media. I like to make sure my sources don't have the same bias too. News sites I use are Tass, Ria, RT, TvZvezda, Reuters, BBC, and CNN. Usually the news sites are too slow and are not narrow enough to look at the situation closely and that is where social media comes into play with Twitter usually being able to provide updates the fastest. Other than the Russian Ministry of Defense and the regular media accounts, here are a few good English Twitter accounts:
    https://twitter.com/conflicts/
    https://twitter.com/miladvisor/
    https://twitter.com/ivansidorenko1/
    https://twitter.com/petolucem/
    https://twitter.com/ibra_joudeh/
    https://twitter.com/syria24english/
    Also looking up #Latakia on Twitter also helps get info (lot of it being fake though).

    A little of the Turkish media buttblasted about the poor innocent Turkmens getting slaughtered. Laughing

    ANKARA

    Almost 7,000 Turkmen have recently been displaced due to repeated air and ground assaults by Syrian regime forces and Russian warplanes in Syria’s predominantly-Turkmen Bayirbucak region, according to a local Turkmen association.

    Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Ahmed Vezir, secretary-general of the Association of Syrian Turks, said that 20 villages in Bayirbucak -- where some 17,000 people are estimated to live -- had been entirely vacated as a result of the recent upsurge of violence.

    Vezir said that a number of Turkmen -- mostly women, children and elderly people -- had recently fled to the villages of Yamadi and Sallur near the Turkish border and to Turkey's southern Hatay province.

    Turkey’s official disaster relief agency, AFAD, for its part, has set up a coordination center in Yamadi to organize the distribution of humanitarian aid to affected Turkmen families.

    Over the last several days, approximately 2,000 Syrian Turkmen, fleeing the violence in their home country, have reportedly arrived in southern Turkey.

    Turkmen are a Turkic ethnic group based largely in Syria and Iraq, where they live alongside large Arab and Kurdish populations. The Turkmen community, which includes both Sunni and Shia Muslims, shares close cultural affinities with the Turkish people.

    Abdul-Rahman Mustafa, head of the Ankara-based Council of Syrian Turkmen, told Anadolu Agency that only young Turkmen of fighting age still remained in Bayirbucak.

    ‘No Daesh presence’

    Turkmen civilians in Bayirbucak, which is located in Syria’s Latakia province, say the Daesh militant group has no presence in the area.

    A number of Turkmen told Anadolu Agency that Russian claims of a Daesh presence in Bayirbucak were little more than a pretext intended to justify ongoing Russian airstrikes in the area.

    "Everyone is using Daesh as a pretext to intervene in Syria," said Mustafa. "Daesh isn’t in the Turkmen Mountains; this is a big lie."

    "If Russia really wanted to strike Daesh, why don’t they hit them in northern Aleppo where we’re already fighting them?" he asked.

    Many Turkmen say they have been abandoned by the international community, saying they faced frequent attacks by Syrian regime forces, backed by Iran, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Russian air power.

    Ahmed Yusuf, 45, a civilian in Bayirbucak, told Anadolu Agency that Russian warplanes frequently struck "civilians targets and mosques in the area".

    "Turkey has opened its borders to the [Turkmen] people," Bayirbucak resident Suhail Abdullah, 29, said. "But most of us don’t want to leave our villages."

    "We’ve lived here for ages," he added. "We won’t leave our ancestral lands to anybody."

    Now we know who he is :p

    But seriously, do they show any evidence of turkmen fleeing the warzone? Its more than likely people are fleeing, but would be interesting to see which way they are going, much like refugees in donbass all went east to the supposed aggressor

    https://www.rt.com/news/323377-russian-pilot-saved-syria/



    A Russian military helicopter was destroyed, and a Russian naval infantryman killed - according to the Russian government - all that to rescue a single airman, and they call it as successful?


    And if Russia is allegedly fighting against the "Islamic State" then why was it attacking with these jets the ethnic Turkomans who actually fight against the "Islamic State" on the ground?

    Infantryman < navigator, cruel but that is how military looks at it. When its about helicopter, its just a helicopter, US lost 8 last 2 months in regular flights out of combat zones.

    Coz they also fight aganist regular Syrian Army? Maybe...


    The naval infantry in Russia are considered as elite troops, perhaps not totally as elite as GRU Spietsnaz but still elite.

    If Russia is only there to fight the "Islamic State" then that is what it should do, but no fight against others who are fighting against the IS.

    There are now some allegations being made in the Western mass media that it is only the Western air forces that really fight agains the IS, while the Russians attack only the Free Syrian Army and its ethnic Turkoman allies.

    It is Russia that looks dishonest here.

    Specnaz GRU is military intelligence directorate substructure they are not comparable to naval infantry whatsoever, not even remotely. Naval infantry is still partially being manned by conscripts so...no. Training of one pilot costs far more than any other member of armed forces except few rare examples, one would trade pilot with 500 flying hours for squad of infantry no questions asked.

    Russia NEVER said they are there to fight "only Islamic State", they are there to aid SAA, whoever is the enemy since SAA is the one and only legitimate armed force in Syria along with NDF. Also all those "rebels", "moderates", "Al Nusra", "Turkmens" and other fractions that you find along the way can be nicely placed in one bag.

    Some conscripts go into the Spetsnaz too, just FYI

    And yes, the Marines are not 'elite' in the sense that in terms of combat-training; there are no worse and no better trained than the motor-rifles infantry and the VDV troops. They are all fairly equivalent; but ofc the Marines and VDV often have their own specific training that regular infantry do not, depending on their exact role (paradrops, amphibious operations, etc...)

    I already combed the big Turkish media sites and couldn't find anything concrete about Turkmen refugees. But to be fair, it feels like the number of illegals here in Colorful Colorado has grown exponentially in the last few years and even less has been said about it compared to a few years prior. So it may just be a thing that people accept is happening. I would also be curious to find out where they are going. Won't be surprised if they end up being Frau Merkel's problem soon where it already felt like Turks had taken over the big cities.

    A Russian military helicopter was destroyed, and a Russian naval infantryman killed - according to the Russian government - all that to rescue a single airman, and they call it as successful?


    And if Russia is allegedly fighting against the "Islamic State" then why was it attacking with these jets the ethnic Turkomans who actually fight against the "Islamic State" on the ground?

    Infantryman < navigator, cruel but that is how military looks at it. When its about helicopter, its just a helicopter, US lost 8 last 2 months in regular flights out of combat zones.

    Coz they also fight aganist regular Syrian Army? Maybe...


    The naval infantry in Russia are considered as elite troops, perhaps not totally as elite as GRU Spietsnaz but still elite.

    If Russia is only there to fight the "Islamic State" then that is what it should do, but no fight against others who are fighting against the IS.

    There are now some allegations being made in the Western mass media that it is only the Western air forces that really fight agains the IS, while the Russians attack only the Free Syrian Army and its ethnic Turkoman allies.

    It is Russia that looks dishonest here.

    Specnaz GRU is military intelligence directorate substructure they are not comparable to naval infantry whatsoever, not even remotely. Naval infantry is still partially being manned by conscripts so...no. Training of one pilot costs far more than any other member of armed forces except few rare examples, one would trade pilot with 500 flying hours for squad of infantry no questions asked.

    Russia NEVER said they are there to fight "only Islamic State", they are there to aid SAA, whoever is the enemy since SAA is the one and only legitimate armed force in Syria along with NDF. Also all those "rebels", "moderates", "Al Nusra", "Turkmens" and other fractions that you find along the way can be nicely placed in one bag.

    Some conscripts go into the Spetsnaz too, just FYI

    And yes, the Marines are not 'elite' in the sense that in terms of combat-training; there are no worse and no better trained than the motor-rifles infantry and the VDV troops. They are all fairly equivalent; but ofc the Marines and VDV often have their own specific training that regular infantry do not, depending on their exact role (paradrops, amphibious operations, etc...)

    Rarely to GRU these days tho, they are trying these days to get GRU memebers from people that already served in motor-rifle infantry or VDV or various other "Specnaz" units. To various other "Specnaz" units yeah, conscripts are still present, and will be for quite some time.

    Naval infantry is considered "special" just coz of their role, nothing else, coz their role is quite specific, which after they land becomes role of common infantry again.

    Is the Kuznetsov carrier armed with offensive missiles still? I remember it used to have a VLS but that also that a recent refit may have removed it.

    I dont think so, this dock time was too short for such quite big changes.

    "In 2012, it was announced that the Kuznetzov would undergo a 3+ year refit beginning in 2014-2015. During the refit the basic nature of the role of the carrier would be changed. The 12 large anti-surface missiles will be removed and the hanger spaces enlarged."

    Kudrin is not the worst of the liberals in Russia. People like Alexeyeva and Navalny are far worse.

    Russian Jets in Syria Strike 449 Terrorist Targets in Three Days

    The Russian Aerospace Forces have conducted more than 130 sorties over the past three days and hit 449 terrorist targets in eight Syria's provinces, the Russian Defense Ministry said Thursday.


    http://sputniknews.com/military/20151126/1030817560/russi-syria-combat-report.html

    "On November 23-26, Russian Aerospace Forces' aircraft have conducted 134 sorties, hitting 449 targets in the provinces of Aleppo, Damascus, Idlib, Latakia, Hama, Homs, Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor," Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.

    Russian military jets destroyed an ISIL ammunition depot and groups of al-Nusra Front terrorists in Syria, Konashenkov said.

    "Outside the town of Al-Qaryatein, in the province of Homs, a Russian Su-24M bomber destroyed a grounded ammo depot. After a pinpoint strike by an OFAB-250-270 air bomb explosives detonated, and the depot was totally destroyed."

    He underscored that outside the town of Zaitan in the province of Idlib a squadron of Su-25 ground attack jets carried out airstrikes against groups of al-Nusra Front militants.

    "The direct hits of Russian air bombs destroyed one tank, two armored vehicles, and three mortar-carrying vehicles. The enemy sustained serious losses in personnel," he added.

    The Russian aviation continued to carry out airstrikes against oil refining facilities of the Islamic State (ISIL) terrorist group in Syria, spokesperson for the Russian Defense Ministry told journalists.

    "On November 24, a Russian Su-34 bomber conducted an airstrike against a motorcade of oil-loading trucks and oil refining and storage facilities near the oil fields in northern and eastern Syria, in the province of Deir ez-Zor and Raqqa," he said.

    According to the Defense Ministry, armed groups of militants blocked near Tel-Bissa and ar-Rastan continue to sustain losses, due to the airstrikes.

    He noted that on the directions of Mkhin and Al-Quaryatein the militants stepped back by four-six kilometers.

    "Today, we’re once again demonstrating, with the use of objective video monitoring data, the results of the combat operations of our aviation against terrorist positions," the spokesperson said.

    Extremists continue to suffer major losses due to Russia's airstrikes, Konashenkov said.
