    No, it was just a post with the picture. Those trucks seem to be all round Syria now with the Russian police operation spreading.

    The US seems to be keen on the idea of using US equivalent trucks as squad cars all over the USA. Crazy.

    A salvo from the new Kilo's next?

    A Russian warship in the Mediterranean Sea has fired a salvo of Kalibr cruise missiles at a group of jihadists stationed near the city of Deir ez-Zor in western Syria, the Russian military reported. The targeted militants were mainly from Russia and countries of the CIS.

    The frigate ‘Admiral Essen’ of the Russian Black Sea fleet fired the missiles on Tuesday morning, a statement by the Russian Defense Ministry said. The barrage destroyed a communications center, weapons depots and a repair workshop used by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants, it said.

    “The missile strikes supported the advance of Syrian government forces, and have foiled the plans of the ISIL militants to regroup and strengthen terrorist positions near the city of Deir ez-Zor,” the ministry said.

    Damascus forces supported by Russian warplanes are currently trying to lift a years-long blockade of the provincial capital Deir ez-Zor. Moscow says that the success of the operation would amount to a strategic defeat of the terrorist group in Syria.

    The ‘Admiral Essen’ is one of Russia’s most modern warships, the second of the Admiral Grigorovich class to set sail. It carries 8 vertically-launched Kalibr cruise missiles and previously fired them at IS forces in May and June.

    The 'surround and digest' policy moves forward. Is this standard 'Warsaw Pact' tactics?

    Don't worry about that, everything is normal, you aren't seeing what you think you are seeing, probably the camera lens was dirty or maybe it had a flaw in it. Yeah, that's it, the camera lens had a flaw which gives the photo some silly shadows. Nothing to see here, move along now, just move along.

    Read this article this morning: Most Russians Do Not Back Putin's Syria Operation As Death Toll Mounts

    I really don't give a shyte about Newsweek and MSM propaganda outlets but it says the poll was conducted by two agencies, and focuses on the Levada Center results. I wasn't under that impression. Why wouldn't Russians support their military involvement here in Syria? Would they rather fight Islamic militarism in their own cities and streets? As far as I am aware, the majority die-hard fanatics and crazies over there come from Russia and ex-soviet states lying on its border. Why not deal with them on the Syrian front rather than having them fester at home? Would be interested to hear from any of the native Russians on the forum here comment on this.

    PS. as an added bonus:

    Thanks for those two posts Franco. It is becoming clear just how deep into the Russian military the 'training operation' in Syria is penetrating. This must be hugely valuable to their current leadership. This is experience that just cannot be emulated without an actual war. The actual cost in roubles must make this one of the best investments they have made over the past 10 years. The US decision start a process to overthrow Assad back in 2013 is looking increasingly disastrous on a whole multitude of fronts.

    Couldn't agree more.

    ...................

    I am usually first one to be pissed off about Russians getting killed in Syria but using phrase ''Death Toll Mounts'' is horseshit.

    Overall death toll has been slightly larger per year than among standard beat cops back home.
    Would be even lower had SAA been more competent but they are at least getting some serious results finally.

    As for mercenaries, RIP to them but they knew full well what their line of work entailed, better than anyone here ever will.
    It's how the game is played. Big money but big risks as well, tale old as time.

    Toll could have been as bad, for serving soldiers at least, if they had just been training back home.

    I saw the link to that 'Russians don't support' bovine scatology article this morning. Admittedly I live in a tiny village in a quiet valley where the Black River feeds in to the Black Sea but from what I've seen in this little settlement nary a soul does not support the effort in Syria and for that matter Novorossiya. Case in point, we are going to a little gig in support of the effort tomorrow evening. Gig is private, invitation only, but we'll be there as will a lot of our boys who have just rotated back and they will receive the honors accorded them at the gig.

    I know we are getting on a bit but your eyes must be shot. Can't you see its a 4x4? That's a Niva in the fetching and fashionable 1980s beige colour.

    Looks metal flake navy white to me with really nice bling wheels. The purple velvet upholstery with the pink dingle berries around the wind screen is a nice and very fashionable touch IMHO plus the dingle berries keep the flies away from the screen. Clearly a late model Lada jacked, not slammed. The roads here, you know.....
