    What is the aircraft at 1.15 with the overwing engines. Not seen that there before.

    See the winter is over, the troops are back in their shorts.

    #Pray for Palmira #Pray for Syria #Abdulamir Abu Tin

    https://www.rt.com/news/341896-gergiev-palmyra-concert-prokhorenko/

    Renowned conductor Valery Gergiev will lead a concert in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra to support the restoration of the UNESCO site and honor victims of the war, as the remains of Officer Prokhorenkom, who died heroically there, return to Russia.

    The world-famous conductor offered his support to the embattled city that was devastated by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists who occupied the site for some 10 months before it was liberated by Syrian troops with Russian air support.

    Gergiev will conduct a symphonic orchestra performance titled “Pray for Palmyra. Music revives ancient remains” to commemorate those who lost their lives liberating the city from IS and to back the tremendous efforts needed to restore Palmyra’s ruined architectural gems.

    How about the soldier on the right wearing the, up till now, highly secret mini satellite uplink headset. Must be SF, the drum is to confuse the enemy or used as a counterbalance.

    Unfortunately I do recognize something like it...from a museum.

    It looks like an OKT 11SubM incendiary derivative used with an Ampulomet or an the ABK 500 Subtraps.

    So two possible explanations. BS from "Opposition" (after all they have been seen using stunts like these for propaganda, not unlike the SAA guys), or indeed the SAA or Russia are destrocking these things to burn these guys.

    Russian new army base in Palmyra. So far, protected with Pantsir-S2

    A few buks are needed and it will be a hardened base for sure.
