    Interesting, question is, what da hell is it doing there. After all its main goal is to disrupt various types of radars.

    Well, there were "rumors" of Israeli F-15's patrolling near the Latakia borders. True or not, this is clearly going to be used to disrupt potential enemy aircrafts patrolling near the airfield. And since it will be obtaining a ton of energy so it will fry enemy electronics for sure.

    Which brings us to only two possible conclusions:

    To me, it looks like the Su-24 dropped multiple bombs.

    Too small explosions to be separated warheads of significant yield.

    I mean at 8-10 seconds, when the camera is looking at the Su-24. If you watch carefully in full screen, you can see what appears to be ordinance being dropped.

    Thats the point. Regardless of whom it is, it will screw with their radar. I too would be much happier to have such equipment nearby protecting the airfield.

    Regarding that unidentified "bomb"... by the look of it... the pointed nose and rounded rear I think it might be a 152mm artillery shell... and by the look of the contents I suspect it might be a round developed by the Russians and Bulgarians to jam radio networks behind enemy lines for brief periods.

    The quality of the news and especially the analysis here would ensure that they are, also, being in English all the Western agencies, especially military, should be regular visitors.

    By the way You think that Russia should expand their operations? Look at the effects of 20 sorties per day, will it be enough to change the tide?

    It is likely that one of the objectives of this type of gear, along with the Su-30SMs, is to keep US/NATO/IAF ELINT assets as far away as possible without disclosing the full capabilities of Russian ECM. They have to be a bit careful about impacting civilian air traffic but following MH-17 it is likely that they should be well away from the area.

    This news and the video link are now on Sputnik

    The state-of-the-art Russian electronic warfare system Krasukha-4 has reportedly been deployed in Syria. The Russian military has deployed its mobile, ground-based electronic warfare system Krasukha-4 in Syria, according to footage placed on Russia's Zvezda news network.

    At the beginning of the video (the 6th second), which shows a Russian-made Su-25 landing at a Syrian airfield, a characteristic set of antenna devices is visible in the background. These could be the Krasukha-4 system, Zvezda reported.

    Yes, it looks to be part of the airfield protection system, unless it is just located there for its own safety.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQtsEvAYBWk

    Put into service in 2013, the Krasukha-4 is a broadband multifunctional jamming station, which is based on a BAZ-6910-022 four-axle-chassis. The system has a range of 300 kilometers and is designed to counter airborne early warning and control systems and other airborne radar arrays.

    The Krasukha-4's range allows it to effectively disrupt low Earth orbit satellites and cause permanent damage to targeted radio-electronic devices. Ground-based radars are also a viable target for the Krasukha-4 system.

    September 29: Russia building an A2/AD Bubble over Syria/Levant

    http://pennyforyourthoughts2.blogspot.co.uk/2015/09/russia-building-a2ad-bubble-over.html

    General Breedhate, the NATO wrmonger said

    "Anti-access/area denial, or A2/AD, is a growing problem ... The northernmost danger zone or “bubble” is the oldest, based out of the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad between Poland and Lithuania ... Kaliningrad is a large platform for A2/AD capability ... [Since] their occupation of Crimea, Russia has developed a very strong A2/AD capability in the Black Sea ... Essentially, their [anti-ship] cruise missiles range the entire Black Sea, and their air defense missiles range about 40 to 50 percent of the Black Sea.”

    Ignore the Breedhate bs about occupation. It clearly indicates the ZioNazis are worried about Russia's capabilities.

    Edit: bah, something wierd happened with the quoting.

    When the US Government is happy to use social media publicly as an Intel source, I think you would be safe betting your life savings on them monitoring a site like this, where there is actual Intel on Russian assets, in English as a bonus so the 'raw data' can be shown straight up the chain.

    It could well be good use of time as well as, with the virtually simultaneous availability of some information on the Internet to all, analysis on here can be as fast as anywhere. The Intel cell in CENTCOM would probably be hard pushed to match some of the detail knowledge of some posters here.

    Plus don't forget the 'key word' matching built into the Internet is going to be triggering on here all the time.

    It does make sense if you put it that way. This place is probably a goldmine when some posters here translate Russian sources to English. Russian radio chatter comes to mind.

    Confirmation that the RuAF is operating right on the Turkish border.

    I suppose if its OK for Turkish F-16s to overfly Syria to attack the Kurds, and ISIS of course, then it must also be OK for Su-25s to overfly Turkey to attack ISIS.

    The Turkish Foreign Ministry has summoned Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov over an alleged violation of Turkish airspace by a Russian warplane, the ministry said in a statement Monday.

    ANKARA (Sputnik) – According to the statement, a Russian warplane violated Turkish airspace in the province of Hatay near Syria on October 3. The aircraft left Turkish airspace after being intercepted by two Turkish F-16 fighter jets.

    Insight from friends living in south Russia:
    Many trains, not even hiding with tanks\apc\trucks in desert coloring day and night passing in direction of Black Sea. I don't know what is it, ground operation, or help with equipment for SAA? Anyway, i guess there still will be surprises.


    This must have been happening since at least the start of August when the sea supply link to Syria was seriously upgraded. The six or so large landing ships in use now transport a large amount of 'stuff', from tents and crates of ammo to tanks and trucks. Trains are often the best way to get them to the ports. Probably supplied under some kind of Lend Lease scheme.

    Anyone thinking that the RuA will be in action in force had better check for the Ro-Ro ferries to arrive in the Black Sea. Could be a long wait.

    Interfax quotes one of Duma's members saying he thinks it's very likely that volunteers from Donbass will appear in Syria to fight against ISIS.
