    According to this VKS helos were tasked with inserting Republican Guard reinforcements into Deir ez Zorr on the night of January 23rd. Would explain stabilization.

    Also, there seems to have been successful para drops of ammo onto the airfield and meanwhile this is happening in Palmyra

    Ka-52 advanced combat helicopters and Su-25 attack aircraft will join the Russian Air Group involved in the liberation of the Syrian city of Palmyra from Daesh, according to the Russian newspaper Izvestia.

    The Russian newspaper Izvestia reported that Ka-52 Alligator advanced combat helicopters and Su-25 Rook attack aircraft have joined in efforts to liberate the Syrian city of Palmyra from Daesh terrorists.

    The goal is to significantly strengthen the fire impact on terrorist positions, the newspaper said, referring to an interaction between a Ka-52 and a Su-25 as a combination of intelligence capabilities and high strike power. "It is designed to compensate for the lack of Syrian artillery strike capabilities, as well as to provide effective support to government forces advancing on Palmyra," Izvestia said.

    Vladimir Popov, deputy chief of the Russian magazine Aviapanorama, told Sputnik that interaction between the Ka-52 and the Su-25 is one of the tactics that can be used to improve the efficiency of helicopter and aircraft strike systems. "Using its state-of-the-art sighting and navigation equipment, the Ka-52s will transmit more accurate information about the [enemy] targets due to be bombed by the Su-25s," Popov said.

    According to him, the super precise fire impact on Daesh positions in Palmyra will play an important role in saving the rest of the historic monuments in this ancient city.

    "It is impossible to use carpet bombing in such historically important locations, which must be preserved rather than destroyed at any cost. At the same time, it is necessary to liberate the city as quickly as possible, so it is very important to work with surgical precision when conducting pin-point strikes," Popov said, stressing the importance of permanently adjusting the fire.

    It was a likely option. Fairly predictable.
    Also the BPM-97 is likely to follow the same way, if not done before.

    Is Russia training any more new SAA units in Syria? It seems Assad is going to have to start rebuilding quickly given the emergence of the two large islamist factions in Idlib (Al-Qaeda led 'Tahrir al-Sham' and Ahrar al-Sham led 'Jabhat Tahrir Souriya'). The Al-Qaeda group is thought to have about 30k fighters.

    Emergence?

    Only thing that emerged are two big sweet juicy targets. This was desired outcome and result of some very good planing by Russia.

    Time to go hunting.

    The 5th Corp is being formed, some articles call them the 5th Legion. The first units of this group have started combat in the Palmyra action presently under way.

    Here they come again with what now seem to be their weekly gifts, I am sure the recipients are really happy as they collect their 'virgins'.

    Six Russian Tu-22M3 bombers carried out on Monday airstrikes against new Daesh targets in Syria's Deir ez-Zor province destroying two command posts, arms depots, a large number of military equipment and terrorists, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    "On January 30, 2017, six strategic Tu-22M3 bombers took off in Russia, flew over Iraq and Iran, and carried out a group air attack on new Daesh targets in the Deir ez-Zor province," it reads. "The destruction of all designated targets has been confirmed by the means of objective monitoring," the ministry said. "Su-30SM and Su-35S fighters, which had taken off from the Hmeymim airbase in Syria, provided air cover for the bombers," it added.

    The Russian aircraft safely returned to their home bases after the mission.

    Commenting on the development of the situation in the area, the Russian General Staff said that if terrorists capture Deir ez-Zor, civilians will be subjected to genocide and the population may be completely exterminated.

    The city of Deir ez-Zor, which is still held by Syrian government forces, has been under Daesh's siege since July 2014. The residents of Deir ez-Zor and the servicemen receive food only via planes delivering humanitarian aid.

    Shooter: Yeah.
    Spotter: There is a rope's end. And... there is an arm.
    Shooter: Yeah...
    Spotter: By the way we could try to hit an arm.

    / first shot

    Spotter: One increment up. And one increment to the right.
    Shooter: Ready.
    Spotter: Go.

    / second shot.

    Spotter: One increment up.
    Shooter: Fuck, I don't think upwards would work. (inaudible)
    Spotter: Come on, come on. A little bit.

    / third shot

    Spotter: Looked like a hit. Once more.
    Shooter: Oh, he moved his leg.
    Spotter: That's it. Come on.
    Shooter: He is turning around.
    Spotter: He is trying to get under the staircase. Come on, come on, to the left. Sanya, Sanya, to the left.

    its a real shame Russia wouldn't deliver say at least 6 fully armed Yak-130 to the Syrian air force, it would do two things, give the Syrian air force much needed aircraft, and it would allow them to showcase them for Russia, as i highly doubt RuAF would use such an aircraft in armed conflict but the Syrians would. The SyAF would have an aircraft that would be small, agile, be able to deliver more precise strikes than what they currently field. Another aircraft that could be considered would be Mig-29M2, ideally 6x yak-130 and 6x Mig-29M2 is needed, they showcase them both and the costs are nowhere near other Russian aircraft. The RuAF in Syria are already working there ass off and it would be useful and helpful if the SyAF could also take on some of the more precise airstrikes. anyway its highly unlikely to happen anytime soon.

    Su-25s would be more useful... better armoured and likely better self defence electronics too.

    Russia is not really in a position to just give stuff away.

    Logistics, pilots/training. I think they are main reasons why they are not delivered as there would be little of use. As Garry said, SU-25 on other hand would be perfect in this regard.

    this is good news, i presume Russia is looking to off load tochka missiles as it replaces them with Iskander, but this is serious amount of devastation coming to the terrorists, a well placed missile of this sort is bad news for them, i can't wait to seen them in use.

    Very interesting and carefully crafted comment from Konashenkov, not denying their arrival just that there have been no strikes. Yet.

    The Russian Defense Ministry denied reports of alleged strikes in Syria carried out by Russia's Tochka-U ballistic missile systems.

    On Wednesday, Fox News claimed citing US officials that Russia had allegedly delivered 50 short-range ballistic missiles to the Syrian port of Tartus.

    Both Russia and Turkey have not registered any strikes carried out by Tochka-U ballistic missile systems in Syria, the Defense Ministry said.

    "There is no information about alleged strikes by Tochka-U missiles this week on the Syrian opposition units in Idlib. Neither Russia, nor Turkey recorded it," Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.
