I only would expet to do it, if other countries increase their presence in Syria, as answer. At this point Israel (Golan), Turkey and the US are officially present in Syria, but not in enough amounts to defeat Syria, even not in enough amounts to sustain the front.


    And what happens when SAA runs out of tanks? There are millions of TOW missiles. There aren't millions of tanks. It is not in Russia's interest to drag out the war in Syria indefinitely. Stability in Syria is Russia's interest, not perpetual war. That would play into the hands of Israel and America.

    1.- Syria is still fighting with T-55 and T-62, and looking at the amounts available still, will not have shortage of them in years.
    2.- Syria also has man-portable Surface-Surface weapons. The Syrian opposition has today much bigger problems of shortage of tanks.
    3.- Stability in Syria is good for Russia with a friend gouvernment. Also stability in Syria is the best for the US and Israel, with a friend gouvernment. Both sides want stability, but the gouvernments they want are the opposite. Today Russia is closer to the success than the US and Israel, despite the TOW missiles.

    Almost majority of the tanks when hit by RPG or TOW missiles can be repaired.
    Only a minority ends completely destroyed when hits the ammo of the tank.

    How do they plug a hole? HEAT makes a hole in the tank.

    Yup, among other things, it helps with SAM's chasing cruise missiles beyond curvature of the Earth. And taking a peek into neighboring airspace.


    Also, Russian troops in Afrin today:

    I kinda have a feeling like Russia and USA decided to split them in two and "share" Kurds...

    I believe they are going back.

    The rumors that they were being sent to the Mediterranean were false.

    Bit more on the A-50U deployment from Southfront. Probably one of the unintended consequences of the US Tomahawk strike.

    The Russian military has deployed the airborne early warning and control (AEW) aircraft to Syria. According to local sources, the AEW aircraft arrived the Hmeimim airbase in the town of Jableh few days after the US missile strike on the Al-Sha’irat airbase.

    The aircraft was identified as an upgraded version of the A-50U equipped with the Vega Shmel-M radar, capable of detect the launch of a missile or a fighter jet in the range of 650km. The detection range for ground targets is 300km. The A-50U can conduct command and control air operations, guide friendly fighters and track multiple enemy fighters at the same time. The aircraft can remain in the air for more than 9 hours, and has the ability to detect ground targets and ships.

    Last week, Sergey Rudskoy, Head of the Russian General Staff Main Operations Department, announced that Russia had deployed a multi-level control system in Syria that can control the entire Syrian airspace from the Hmeimim airbase.

    The deployment of the A-50U in Syria is believed to be aimed at improving the ability to detect hostile aircraft and missiles expanding the air defence capabilities of Russian forces. According to reports, the previous deployment of such a plane in Syria took place in 2015.

    Half the people fighting on the side of the terrorists are doing so because they had no choice.

    Give them the choice to change sides and a good reason to fight and you increase your own ranks with people who can fight and deplete the enemies numbers and take away some of their power.

    Smart tactics... but only adults understand such tactics...

    Bullshit. Syria is majority Sunni, and a huge portion of Syrian Sunnis are against Assad for religious or political reasons. The rebels are simply radicalized sunnis who have nothing to gain from being loyal to Assad. Even if they don't win any ground, they will always love to kill "Nusayri Rafidi and Christian dogs" and get Rewards and positive PR from the west and  and everlasting love from pro Israel Sunni powers. If they win, they get a Saudi Arabia of the levant, if they lose they get to live in opulence under Sultan Roach, the Jews, the Inbred Saudi fuckers, or if all else fails, live as rich refugees in multiculti Europe under Macron and Merkel.

    They deserve no forgiveness, and they don't want it.
