    I understood that the total planes participating was indeed 69 including those who operate through Iran.

    So in fact only 12 more Su27 family planes were brought in for the VKS and they're at Krymsk.

    Link below, a flight could be either 2 or 4.

    http://tass.ru/en/defense/838162
    Are the 69 aircraft those flying over Syria or those based there?

    The Su-34 and 27SM3 flying out of Russia would have to go through Turkish or Bulgarian airspace. Not happening...
    Also the bomber fleet is 14 Tu-22M3, 5 Tu-160 and 6 Tu-95MS out of Russia.

    Look at the page before, you have break down of forces.

    The 12 new Su27 family have to be used from Krymsk according to the Russians themselves.

    Thanks guys.

    So the 69 (or so) is made up of those based locally in Syria plus the Russia based long range bombers and their Su-27 escorts (as far as the Iran border when the IAF takes over).

    I thought that 69 operating at that sortie rate out of a fairly small airfield was pushing it. Whoever is controlling the logistics there is doing an amazing job and will be due some serious promotions. I note that there is a Major General on site, he must now be due hero status for what he has achieved.

    The road to the port must be pretty congested and must be the location of a large percentage of the Russian Marines in Syria.

    Litva's president claimed that the country won't join anti-IS alliance lead by Russia...

    Well the hard truth is that Russia does not need the participation of Litva. Sorry Ms. President but it seems like Putin doesn't care.

    I suspect these officers would be duty officers and each 2-man table would connect to a command (ie Combined Arms Army or Air Force Division) The purpose of the 2 man unit ensures that one is always on station while the other has to leave his post.

    That footage is from the briefing, right? So they were supposed to watch that pre-prepared stuff on the big screen and that's it. I guess the higher-ups work elsewhere, so they don't need PCs there. And doesn't Putin always look like that? Very Happy

    Agreed. I find it hilarious how people seem to think that content of those screens when journalists are allowed inside has anything to do with what they display during everyday operations. Razz

    Looking through the Kzhykovsky's correspondence with the Vice-president of "Level 11" Vasily Babytsky we paid attention to the letter from some Volodimir Kuruts.

    Having googled for a while we found out that Volodymyr Yanovich Kuruts was an actual person. He works as the Counsellor for Trade and Economic Affairs in The Embassy of Ukraine to the State of Qatar.
    The letter contains two applications which unveil the fact that Qatar Ministry of Defence was actively looking for the ways to procure SAM systems in September, 2015.
    Evidently for this purpose the Qatar military delegation attended international exhibition "Arms and Security – 2015" which took place on September 22 – 27 in Kiev. Continue reading.

    Sadly, according to the UK's telecoms regulator, a disturbingly high proportion of children think that what is on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Google etc is true.

    @1:55 you will be able to see it.
    Anyone who works on computers, dummy terminals, etc as a job, will know that such monitors have a back bezel in order to hide cabeling.  See picture.  Red is a protruding cable and the yellow is the bezel to hide cables.  Dell monitors in the 24 and 27 inch range meant for workstations have this for the clamp/arm extenders.  As well, more than likely these guys don't have a single workstation but using dummy terminals that connect to a mainframe.  For instance something like this: 
    Russian military intervention and aid to Syria #4 - Page 36 FlvPi0M

    Not necessarily that unit but such thin clients/dummy terminals have mounting brackets for various placements, so more than likely it is on the side of the desk on the inside.

    Russian military intervention and aid to Syria #4 - Page 36 SYQzgl7

    Thin clients don't need anything powerful or exceptional to run as the mainframe does most of the job.  In this case, the hard drive in them are usually a SD Card with enough space for the OS (Linux) and some applications like a hyperterminal for linux.

    Not necessarily. Those desks look like they have ventilation vents in the front which would not be needed if they are operating as thin clients. We don't get a clear view of both sides of the base of the screen. There is room there for a cable slot. It would be very unusual if the screen had captive cables not sockets.

    "SYRIA: A GAME BY RUSSIA’S RULES", a very good article, explaining the situation in middle east. After reading this article, I think Russia should step up their support for the Shia's and Iran.

    Seems like a huge waste of fuel, why not just fly from engels ovr iran/iraq and then return back the same way? Would be much shorter flight times.

    Pilots gather flying hours this way too, also refueling tanker crews get their training in real situations etc. Plus it sends a message of a sort.
