    I've been telling people that Russian forces wouldn't leave home without powerful ECM systems, but too many people were worried about NATO forces attacking Russian positions to listen to reason.

    The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – are preparing for a large-scale ground offensive inside the Al-Houla and Al-Rastan Plains of northern Homs after a one year hiatus from this front.
    ==================

    Russia’s deputy chief of staff, Gen. Nikolay Bogdanovsky, accompanied by a large military delegation, arrives in Israel for a two-day visit on Tuesday, Oct. 6, to discuss increased coordination between the two militaries. However, Moscow seems to be sending Jerusalem an altogether different message: Friday, Oct. 2, the Russian Defense Ministry announced the surprise deployment of Navy cruiser, the Moskva, armed with 64 advanced anti-aircraft missiles S-300 ship-to-air missiles opposite the Syrian coastal town of Latakia.
    DEBKAfile’s military sources point out that Russia, without saying so publicly, has thus created an effective no-fly zone over most of Syria, most of northern Israel, including the Golan, as well as southern Turkey, for US aircraft based there for air strikes in Syria; Cyprus, the site of British air force bases; and Jordan.
    Since 2012, The Obama administration has been discussing the possibility of establishing no-fly zones in northern and southern Syria on a number of occasions, but has shelved the plan whenever a decision was imminent. Now, with one move, Moscow has imposed a no-fly zone over Syria.
    The presence of the wide-ranging S-300s means that the Turkish, British, Israeli and Jordanian air forces will need to coordinate their aerial operations in Syrian or Lebanese airspace with Russia, or face the risk of their planes being shot down.
    In the view of DEBKAfile’s military sources, the only aircraft capable of evading those advanced missiles are stealth planes. Neither the Israeli, British, Jordanian or Turkish air forces, nor the US squadron in Turkey consisting of F-16 fighters, have such aircraft at their disposal.
    The S-300 has a range of 150 kilometers and can shoot down any type of missile, including cruise missiles, as well as planes.
    If US President Obama truly wanted to deal effectively with Moscow’s military moves in Syria, besides saying that Russia is bound to fail, he would have ordered the deployment of US stealth fighters to Turkey and Israel. However,may have been held back from this step by fear of antagonizing Iran, which has so far delayed sealing the nuclear agreement with the world powers by putting it to vote in parliament.
    The presence of Moskva off the shores of Syria and close to northern Israel creates a new situation that will very likely be discussed in the talks that start Tuesday in Tel Aviv between Russia’s deputy chief of staff and his Israeli counterpart, IDF Gen. Yair Golan.
    Although Russian President Vladimir Putin promised Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during their summit in Moscow on September 21 not to allow S-300 missiles reach the hands of the Syrian military, he made no promises about positioning them on a Russian warship in the Mediterranean facing Syria and northern Israel. .
    Our military sources point out that Russian air strikes have not been confined to any single area so far, but the injection of S-300s into the war arena widens the Russian air force's options.
    In an interview with CNN on October 4, Prime Minister Netanyahu described how the Russian operation in Syria had affected relations with Moscow. "We don't want to go back to the days when, you know, Russia and Israel were in an adversarial position,” he said. “I think we've changed the relationship. And it's, on the whole, good.” He added that Israel’s close relations with the US were in a completely different and special category.
    When asked whether he thought Russia’s intervention would cause instability in the region, he seemed to avoid giving a detailed response, only saying, “I don't know. I think time will tell”.
    However, on the topic of the transfer of advanced weaponry to Hizballah, the prime minister was very clear. ”If anybody wants to use Syrian territory to transfer nuclear weapons to Hezbollah, we'll take action,” he said.
    It marked the first time for an Israeli prime minister to speak publicly on the possibility that the terrorist organization could acquire atomic weapons.

    I personally expected some sort of ECM but not Karusha 4 to be honest. I expected stuff like Tiger based MKTK REI PP and R330ZH Zhitel.

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

    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.

    Frying enemy aircraft avionics is very much what Kras-4 is capable of, no need to hit enemy birds with a missile, with fried avionics enemy warplanes will be falling out the air like flies hit with bug spray lol!!! lol1

    The Russian naval and air presences in Syria are vulnerable, isolated geographically from their homeland. They could be “disarmed” if they persist in provoking the US. But, better still, Russia might be persuaded to act with the US in seeking a wider accommodation to a regional problem that transcends the interests of a single state.

    With all due respect to the man's reputation but how is he so certain about the US "disarming" a Russian base? One look at the map and it should be clear who's going to come up with a much harsher response if it comes down to provocations. This accentuates the core logic of American geopolitics. Notice how he mentions a military option before the "common interests" option? They didn't shoot at Russian paratroopers in Pristina airport, they didn't respond when the Russian navy was ramming their ships in the Black Sea and I'm positive they won't lift a finger in Syria. All talk but no walk.

    Only because UK Gen. Michael Jackson told Wesley Clark to go hump himself after receiving order practically to start WW3...

    I cannot give you the translation, but i can tell you what they are doing. Seems their original 9B17 thermal batteries are done, so they improvised their own from commercial grade batteries and plastic water pipes.

    I don't speak arabic, but from video it is obvious what they do. It seems terrorists run out of batteries for Strela-2 MANPADs and they tape together usual batteries together to provide electricity for missile launching. It seems for easier operation they place those batteries in those tubes.
