    Again, Russian warship in close call with U.S. Navy

    For the second time in two weeks, a Russian warship in the eastern Mediterranean has approached U.S. Navy ships in what American military officials said was an unsafe manner, raising concerns about Russian intentions.

    The latest incident took place Thursday when the Russian frigate Neustrashimyy came within 150 yards of the USS San Jacinto, according to U.S. military officials.

    "San Jacinto was never threatened by the erratic maneuvers, as San Jacinto maintained course and speed, but the closing distance by (the Neustrashimyy) before the ship turned away from San Jacinto is considered a high risk maneuver, highly unprofessional, and contrary to international maritime regulations," the Navy said in a statement.

    "Conducting aggressive, erratic maneuvers and moving unnecessarily close to another ship in open ocean is inconsistent with prudent seamanship," the statement added. "We are concerned every time an unprofessional ship maneuvers occurs. These actions can unnecessarily escalate tensions between countries, and could result in dangerous miscalculations or accidents."

    The Russian frigate had been engaged in "shadowing" operations of the nearby carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower at the time. The Russian ship "conducted multiple erratic" maneuvers while the Eisenhower was conducting flight operations, the officials said.


    The Navy had anticipated the Russian moves because it was the same frigate that had approached the USS Gravely two weeks ago, officials said.
    At one point, the U.S. Navy sailors were able to photograph the Russian ship's weapons "uncovered" but unmanned, officials said.

    Why don't Russia supply some new artillery like Msta-B and Sani to SAA? SAA only has 1960s artillery at this point. That is not acceptable considering the US gives top notch equipment to Ukraine.

    Dear Resistance,
    Can you write more sentence than one??? It is hard to understand what you want to say in one sentence and if you do not have to say something, please do not make any comment at all! You will be much more smarter than you are. In my country there is one rule:" silence is gold!" so please keep with this rule.
    In Ukraine, USA is not given to Ukraine any new equipment or top notch at all. They receive standard equipment what will not change course of war at all. What will change course of war will be training of troops, how they will be using equipment, how they will be using communication and after all how long they can hide plans from opposite side or mask it with deception. This will win the war. And yes, they doing in that direction. But opposite side is doing same thing too. In other words they are equal.

    that last video , shows , the rebels terrorist , are not really prepared to fight in a real
    high tech war. If Russia used Chemical weapons or Biological weapons , you throw them in their zones and terrorist wiped. without firing a shot. it will cover an entire valley. But Russia is forced to play by American/European-UN rules. Of clean fights and on top of that with cease of fires.. Laughing  And nearly all border nations of Syria ,specially Turkey ,Jordan and Israel,becoming the major supply line of the terrorist and Americans providing logistics and air intelligence but also weapons to be more effective against Russia. So what we see in Syria is more like a political + proxy military war.  a war where military advantage cannot be used , and you need to follow a game.  I still remember how Amnesty International and Human rights watch.. all funded by American soros neocon.. demanded Syria army to not encircle Rebels cities because they have the right to food. Rolling Eyes

    So Obama /NATO backed terrorist fight without rules ,they even use chemical weapons ,
    But Russia and Syria needs to allow humanitarian aid and food be send to terrorist and cease of fires and defeat the terrorist but with US and EU not saying anything about ISIS supply lines and oil business.


    Denied by Russian Ministry of Defense. All aircraft and helicopters are safe and accounted for at their bases.

    Indeed Russia electronic warfare have been a real big game changer for Russia. and T-90s
    performance have been relative good too. it was really scary to watch those Mi-24 flying so close at building altitude in terrorist zones waving bullets. you need balls of steel to do that.. lol

    It was Syrian helicopter Mi-25 and it was a test flight with Russian pilot instructors, but went to attack terrorists on request of Syrian troops fighting with ISIL. Considering it was a test flight, maybe Russians repair Syrian helicopter or made some modifications on it.

    The longer this senseless war drags on, the more casualties for everyone. Can't stand Putin not decisively ending this war. Hopefully it's winding down with Aleppo siege.

    Aleppo take over ,could take a year if not more..playing by the book rules of
    Americans/UN, and Human RIghts groups.  Is a living urban hell. the fights have to be done apartment by apartment and so many tall buildings crapped together. US and NATO will not have problems to wipe the rebels terrorist if wanted to fight them. Because they simply as they did in IRAQ , they block the media from any report , and start bombing cities with civilians inside
    and use white phospurus. and or starve the rebel terrorist and they surrender when no longer
    can continue without food.   Russia in the other hand need to play by UN laws ,and allow food
    to enter in besiege zones.

    But liberating Aleppo will not end the war , still Turkey ,Saudi arabia, Jordan and Israel with American full support and logistics can continue sending more terrorist.  However still liberating
    aleppo will make things easier. it will liberate like 20k to 30k Syrian army soldiers from their
    defensive positions encircling aleppo.. and will be able to move to other fronts like IDLIB and latakia and secure it completely or Raqqa. ..  So it will create a major cascade
    effect , that will destroy the morale of the terrorist and many will surrender.

    So it will be a major game changing thing liberating Aleppo ,but the war will not end ,it will continue on a bit smaller level ,but still will be. Because the objectives of NATO is not only to overthrow Assad. they also want to damage Russia economy , as they did in Soviet afgan war , by forcing them to stay for a long time .  Putin counter this by having a small force there.

    So Russia plan in Syria can work ,as long they hold positions and little by little advance, then it will be NATO ,Saudi arabia and Turkey ,the ones burning their money in the war and not Russia.
    Russia will do well is providing a couple of hundreds of t-75 tanks to Syrian army to more easier
    hold palmyra and Aleppo zones and latakia, and create a manufacturing plant in Syria of T-75s
    tanks ,where they can be not only repaired ,but fully manufactured there in Syria ,so they can
    more quickly repair and restore their tanks and upgrade them.

    Re the Mi-35 loss, it looks to have been a misfire of one of their own artillery rockets?  The footage shows the chopper attacking with rockets, and the 3rd one clearly misfires (no departing smoke trail) and the tail rotor is blow off by debris.

    All losses to these filthy takfiri dgs is to be lamented, and lets not give these ISIS or JaN rats any credit. This was simply bad luck.

    there is two major theories..

    some say it was its own rocket that exploded in the tail of the chopper.
    The other is it was a manpad/tow.

    whatever it was , it hit the tail of the chopper.

    So either the terrorist attacked from a high elevation point the tail.. or the rocket launched
    by the helicopter failed and hit the blades of the tail?

    If the video is the correct one.. if.. then is certain then ,that the chopper was not returning to the base ,as indicated by Russian staff and was still fighting. and another thing clear is that the explosion hits the tail ,and that it looks that the angle of attack was high. or it could be simply
    be ,the chopper own rockets when was firing them, one failed to launch and exploded on the tail of the chopper. my guess was a manpad.

    in any case ,All this high elevation mountains pose a real threat to any helicopter in the world , because if not manpad ,any 30mm gun mounted in the mountain , could finish any attack helicopter with sustained fire.

    The explosion that hit the tail-rotor seemed to be quite large not what I would expect from a failure of an unguided rocket, and, it was an explosion, debris from a rocket would look a lot different I think.
