    Yeap, the Tu-214R is gone home today.
    They need to build more of them so one can be on deployment in Syria at all times.
    I agree, complete over exaggeration. There is no way that there is room on the aprons for that quantity of aircraft. Clearly the helicopters are spread around so that is feasible but as to the rest 32 Su-24 for goodness sake!

    What about the IL-20M and A-50, they have not been included in the list or have they also returned? I guess no.

    And why has it to be bullshit and over exaggeration?
    Tu-214R has returned but do we have evidence of the other airframes having been returned to its home base?

    As I said above, there is not enough room for 68 airframes, especially now the airbase is operating both runways for takeoffs/landings. Just look back at the satellite photos, even the 44 known to be there then had a tight squeeze.

    Floating workshop "PM-138" has joined #russiannavy Mediterranean Sea task group
    http://militarynews.ru/story.asp?rid=1&nid=404649


    Seems like a regular visitor to Tartous, back in April 14, 2014
    http://www.interfax.com/newsinf.asp?id=496813

    Russian floating workshop sails to Tartus for six-month stint

    ST. PETERSBURG. April 14 (Interfax-AVN) - The floating workshop PM-138 of the Russian Black Sea Fleet is heading to the Syrian port of Tartus to replace the PM-56 vessel, which had been providing support for the Russian Navy's grouping in the Mediterranean Sea for half a year, a source in the Navy Central Headquarters told Interfax-AVN.

    "The PM-138 led by 2nd Reserve Captain Aleksandr Kashalaby is to spend half a year providing repair and maintenance for the Russian naval ships and vessels that will be calling at the Russian material and technical base located at the Syrian port of Tartus," the source said.

    The PM-138 is to replace the PM-56 led by Igor Bakuradze, he said.

    The Russian vessel is carrying anti-terror groups from the Black Sea Fleet's separate marine brigade, he said.

    The PM-138 crew led by Kashalaby was performing its tasks during the escalation of the Syrian crisis, he recalled. A few times, the vessel, having taken the Russian maintenance staff on board, would anchor in the port's roadstead to leave it immediately in the event of a dangerous situation but would then return to Tartus.

    Tight squeeze could be true...but that still doesn't confirm the airframes have been sent back.
    Even though Russian MoD have denied any need and use of a 2nd airbase, they can make use of that 2nd airbase in Homs and we have seen the Mi-35 operating out of Shayrat airbase in Homs.

    We have a photo and video of every plane in hmeymim. Both from the satellites and the ground. There is no secret about it. We know when they arrived. We know their numbers. It's not even about the space. They could squeeze more if they wanted to. But they didn't. You act like you're not on the military forum where people have posted hundreds of photos and videos from the base. Do you even read the threads?

    "Russian media reports that a Russian Buyan-class corvette operating in the Mediterranean Sea on Tuesday launched Kalibr cruise missiles at targets in Syria. The Russian cruise missiles 3M14 complex “Kalibr” hits the positions of militants groups “Dzhabhat en-Nusra” and its allies in the “Army of Conquest” in the village of Al-Mansoura, near Al-Gaab (northwestern Syrian province of Hama).



    The Kalibr cruise missile is an updated version of a missile that has been in Russian service since 2012, according to online sources. With a range of roughly 1,000 miles or more and small enough to be carried by submarines and small warships, the weapon is changing the calculus of the reach and effectiveness of smaller naval combatants."

    Don't know if this has been posted, but the Russians will be bringing Zoopark-1 counter-battery radar to Syria, so this definitively means the Russians are fed up with all the shenanigans being caused by the Pro-Daesh-bag Turdish troglodytes at the northern border.

    The Daech strategy in Syria - 4000 russian soldiers ready for attack of Hama and Idlib

    Daesh seems to have resolved not to confront the Kurds to focus on the center of Syria and sanctuaries major cities in the east, as Palmyra, Deir az Zor, Raqqah and its capital, allowing it to hold the east of the country by two roads that lead to Iraq, as well as the Euphrates.

    So it would be for him to give ground to the north and to strengthen the center, facing the land forces of loyalists, where suicide bombings last week in Damascus and Homs, who made over 200 dead. And it is precisely on this point that we must analyze recent operations both Russians that the Kurds and Americans. Secure the north by the cease-fire and the Kurds, who hold the Turkish border, the 4,000 men of the Russian device move to the south to take the two major towns between Aleppo in the north, and Homs, won in December, south near Damascus: Hama and Idlib.

    Base Al-Shayrat, 30 km from Homs, now has eight attack helicopters in support of the 120th artillery brigade with six howitzers Msta 2A65-B 152 mm. The next target of Russian coalition is Hama, where four 2A65 took position, backed by several T90 equipped with reactive armor (ERA Kontakt-5) and a 125 mm cannon, due to the use and Daesh Front Nosra al-US anti-tank TOW missiles from Saudi Arabia, whose storage locations remain the main target of the Russian air force. This is where the Jaich al-Nasr militias and Jund al-Aqsa recalled reinforcements of dozens of vehicles from the southern province of Aleppo.

    In attrition west as themselves caught both from the north and from the south, the jihadist forces now undergo the same strategy throttle conducted by the Russians in the east this time. Moscow pounded indeed every day the city of Palmyra, which opens the way from the north to the highways held territory Daech. But, in parallel, the Kurds resumed in the Islamic state the cities of Al-Thawrah and Ash Shaddadi, which are located on the axis which supplies logistics Raqqah, the capital of the Caliphate.

    Although difficulty Daech did not give an inch of ground in Palmyra, about Raqqah, aware that the Kurds do not want in any way offensive to push the conquest of this Arab city, jihadists have already established a new logistics network. The offensive against the city of Khanasser near Aleppo, and uses the asymmetric tactics in loyalist towns surrounded by slums populated by Sunni proletariat demonstrate daily the extreme resilience of jihadist fighters, and the fragility of the diplomatic process current, which does not include community and social origin of the conflict

    More on this. Looks to be another class act by Moscow. These units, now they are there, can be moved around the country to 'monitor the ceasefire'. Right!

    Russian military have set up electronic systems, which allows monitoring violations of the ceasefire in Syria. Over the past three days three modern complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles and two radars detecting small targets have been deployed to Syria.

    The Zoopark-1 missile and artillery ground reconnaissance complex is designed to automatically determine the coordinates of enemy artillery positions (mortars, field artillery, rocket volley fire systems and tactical missile launch positions) to provide target sighting information to its own countermeasure equipment, as well as to monitor its own firing results. The design of the ‘Zoopark-1’ complex was started in the Soviet Union back in the 1980s as a replacement to APK-1 ‘Ris’ complex. The new complex is mounted on the chassis of a MTLB truck.

    The Zoopark-1 intelligence and radar complex is completely autonomous and it takes about five minutes to deploy. The complex can conduct reconnaissance of positions of up to 17 kilometers and target artillery with a minimum bore size of 82-120 millimeters. The gun’s caliber is 105-155 millimeters and has a distance of 12 kilometers. It has a multiple launch systems with ranges up to 22 kilometers and tactical missiles that can travel up to 45 kilometers. The complex is capable of detecting up to 70 firing positions in a minute, while tracking up to 12 targets.

    The cessation of hostilities in Syria came into force at the end of February. Nearly a hundred opposition parties supported the truce. The groups that didn’t fall under the truce were Daesh and al-Nusra Front terrorists.

    Zoopark's in Latakia is needed but frankly it's not going to radically alter the Russian views on this. Yeah, probably 300mm rockets will fall not far from Turkish positions and probably the Russians will retaliate on "Refugees" and their camps. You can see by eyeball the fact that the rounds are coming from Turkish territory.
