    SAA is in no position to take any ground from jihadists. They are far too outnumbered and stretched too thin. SAA has been losing ground for years now. There won't be a Syria left after next year.

    Good. Already they are getting their asses handed to them by Yemeni rebels. Just wait till they fight an actual fighting force. Hell, if Russia confronts Saudi Arabia, that is it for them. Already Houthis causing destruction in Saudi Arabia proper.

    As Colonel Chester Phillips would say after shooting down the Hydra soldier that said cut off one head 2 more shall...., let's go find 2 more, in short, reality is different from fantasy.

    No, Afghanistan was a pain because certain Western and Arabian powers were arming, financing, and training the mujahideen non-stop.

    No, Chechnya was troublesome because the Soviet Union had collapsed sending the Russian army in disarray.

    Bull, Assad's army ain't dead, Russia's sending arms, Iran's sending soldiers, they've held on this long and by the looks of it there going to keep holding on.

    This is why Putin came to speak at UN for the first time in 10 years, because he knows there won't be a Syria after next year. He does a saber rattling in Latakia to get the west to lift sanctions on Russia.

    No, Putin went there because it was the 70th anniversary, and spoke about unity against terrorism while at the same time blaming "you know who" for this disaster in order to push for a proper non-western aligned coalition against the I.S.

    As for sanctions, the only affect they've had was the further strengthening of the Russian economy, i don't think Russia's in a hurry to get them lifted. Wink

    And Latakia is simply being expanded to receive more supplies, so this saber rattling talk sounds like FOX news BS.

    Jihadists fired Grads at Russian base in Latakia. They are not yet in range, but soon they will be in range.

    https://now.mmedia.me/lb/en/NewsReports/565978-syria-rebels-target-airport-used-by-russia

    I think Russia will soon evacuate its personnel from there to prevent casualties. Latakia is too small to hold out against hoards of jihadists now pouring in from Idlib via Turkey.

    Jihadists are no Ukrainians. They are not afraid to die. They will not stop until you are dead or converted.

Also, the front wheel plywood mount has been strengthened to survive less than perfect arrivals better.
    With a 4S 14.8V 10,000mAh LiPoly battery, flight times are long, and wing loading still low thanks to the generous wing area of the Talon. A generous fuselage compartment with large top hatch and removable nose bubble allows you to access your FPV equipment and flight battery in any configuration you choose. It is an open canvas for your FPV needs.

    Features:

    • Kit - All assembly and equipment installation required
    • Moulded EPO airframe
    • Laser cut plywood motor mount and wing saddle frame
    • Version 2 Talon features strengthened ply parts and improved equipment mounting options

    I think there must be a plan for a coordinated counter attack, Syrian forces from west, and Kurdish from the north and east, with Russian air cover..

    They stop when they are dead.

    this will be a very good way for the Russians to test some of their tactics and systems... UAVs and UCAVs will be valuable in this situation with Assads forces providing the ground force and air power being used to help I would expect the Iranians and Iraqis and Syrians to all work together to deal with ISIS and Al quada... whether the Kurds help or get in the way will be interesting.

    I assume Turkey wants ISIS gone more than it wants Assad gone so there is ground to deal there... the issue of kurdish forces might not appeal to turkey, Iran, Iraq, or Syria, but some sort of autonomy arrangement might be agreed to.

    The FN MAG and FN Minimi are inferior to the PKM... they can have them.

    Full item in other thread. My highlight

    According to Fox News quoting a high-ranking US official, Russia has demanded that US airplanes immediately leave Syria.

    Russia, Iran, Iraq, and Syria have recently created an information center in Baghdad in order to coordinate the fight against the Islamic State. The information center’s main goals are to provide reconnaissance on the number of IS militants, their weapons, and their movements. Earlier this week, it was revealed that the new center would begin operations in October or November and be headed by Russian, Syrian, Iraqi and Iranian officers on a three-month rotational basis.

    Famous "White Helmets" are "Syria Civil Defence are 2,709 volunteer search and rescue workers from local communities who risk their lives to save others and bring hope. 30,000+ lives saved" they apparently have strong ties with Al Nusra judging by their Twitter account and some reports.

    Examples of their tweets (mainly aganist Assad and Russia, very rarely aganist ISIS even tho they are supposed to be besieged by them):

    Thing is that no more than 10 BMPT-72s were built in total for Russia. I belive 10 was made for Kazakhstan and thats it. Beside few prototypes for state tests none are in existence or actual service.

    "Believe it or not, American soldiers fighting against ISIS in Syria and Iraq will actually be wearing the emblem of ISIS – the infamous crossed-swords logo. Well, almost.

    Syrian Civil War: News #2 - Page 12 ISIS-logo

    Controversy has stirred because many think the patch looks too much like our boys are fighting for the enemy… just another sign of confusion about the counterproductive Obama-led war against the notorious and shamefully exploitative jihadist army. “A combat patch worn by U.S. soldiers who served in Iraq on the mission against Islamic State is drawing flak from service members and veterans who say the patch — with its palm wreath, stars and crossed scimitars — looks like something the enemy would wear.”
    Site like JihadWatch are arguing that the:

    “new U.S. Army patch for fight against the Islamic State closely resembles Muslim Brotherhood logo.”
    While the Islamic State is using barbaric tactics to remake the Middle East closer to its own vision of a Caliphate, the United States and its allies also seek to remake the Middle East, and use the  specter of terrorism to aid in regime change in Syria and elsewhere. The triangulation and cross-purposes are both confusing and aggravating to many Americans."


    Source: http://www.infowars.com/new-patch-for-u-s-troops-fighting-isis-looks-like-isis-logo/

    The Army's patch for Operation Inherent Resolve:

    Syrian Civil War: News #2 - Page 12 Operation-inherent-resolve-army-patch

    "The US Army has debuted a new shoulder patch that soldiers in Iraq can wear to represent their role in the ongoing fight against ISIS, USA Today reports. The patch features crossed scimitars, three stars, and a palm wreath. According to USA Today, the three stars denote the US land, air, and sea forces involved in the fight against ISIS.

    The palm wreath is meant to symbolize honor, while the crossed swords evoke the twin goals of the ongoing operations: the defeat of ISIS and the restoration of stability in the region. Currently, there are over 3,000 US Army personnel deployed in Iraq. These soldiers have not been deployed in combat roles; instead, they provide training to the Iraqi Security Forces and help coordinate air strikes against ISIS positions.  The patch will only be available for US Army soldiers. The other service branches of the military are also participating in Operation Inherent Resolve against ISIS but will reportedly not be receiving patches. "


    “Unit insignia is important because it fosters esprit de corps," the operation's spokesman told USA Today. "The CJTF-OIR [Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve] headquarters is made up of men and women from all services, many nations and many different units in the Army. This insignia will be worn by all of the Army members of the CJTF and may be authorized for wear by other services and nations according to their regulations.”
