    They already slapped them down several times but it was on the down-low in hope that those clowns can take a hint.

    They can't so now the are saying loud and clear that next time it will be officially on purpose and much more painful than they even imagined.

    The jihadi terrorists are admitting to losses of 300. So it looks like the truth was closer to the

    I read that and in fact it's 300 that ONE particular surviving jihadist knows of.

    So yeah, paste and lots of it.  thumbsup

    Trucks are borderline mint condition. Hose off the wheels and you can put them in car salon with a price tag...

    Forget boat, I wouldn't be surprised if they were fresh off the plane from mother.

    Not like it would be tough thing to do, just look at this pic from Sakhalin from yesterday:

    Link contains video of today's Kalibr hits. However go to 0.51 and stepping through the video a black missile like object tracks from bottom left to top middle, the Kalibr?

    EDIT

    The Kalibr does an amazing G turn to dive onto the building.

    That's just fresh delivery for Coast Guard in Sakhalin, I used the pic for illustrative purpose.

    If they can squeeze two Mangust patrol boats in one An-124 then those bridging trucks should be no problem. Deir ez Zorr has functional runway. Faster than via Tartus.

    I know them's is not for the rivers or serious fighting. We've got 4 of them in Balaklava and a couple in our harbor. Thought they might be for the Coast Guard of Syria.

    This is a tanker, so could be a RuAF fighter rotation in Syria underway. Or even adding some more type unknown, you know, just in case.

    Nah, too rich for Syrian blood. They might get Raptors but Mangusts are pretty fancy products even though they might look plain on the outside. Proper ocean rated boats.

    Saw them up close and personal in Balaklava Harbor 3 weeks ago. Nice looking hulks to be sure. Also saw up close and personal the floaters in our harbor around the same day. Sweet!

    Yup, the Russians are starting to line up their diplomatic ducks in a row for the end of hostilities and potential votes in the UNSC. They are going for solid support from the neighbouring countries, Turkey/Iraq/Iran who don't want a Kurdistan. Turkey is the interesting one as they would dearly like a bit of NW Syria.

    https://www.rt.com/op-edge/372142-us-russia-syria-partition-turkey/


    Syria’s allies in this war – Iran, Hezbollah, Iraq, Russia, China – have maintained only two hard red lines throughout the conflict:

    The first is that Assad can only be removed from office in a national election, by a Syrian majority.

    The second is that Syria must stay whole.

    Their logic was simple. Regime-change, remapping of borders, mercenary proxy armies, divide-and-rule…the old tricks of Western hegemons needed to sto


    As the Security Arc succeeded in beating back extremist groups, it would be necessary for three critical neighboring states to gravitate toward participation in this new regional security architecture – Egypt, Turkey and Jordan – each for different reasons.


    For the more than 70 percent of Syrians living in government-controlled areas, the appetite for further conflict is nonexistent – and that’s what partition would mean: conflict. Furthermore, not just Syrians, but the whole of the Security Arc and their global allies are now hell bent on protecting themselves by destroying the terrorism that dwells in the remaining pockets of occupied territory


    In the military context, a forced partition would require the commitment of troops stronger than the armies of Syria, Iran, Russia, Iraq, Egypt and Hezbollah combined – and that doesn’t exist. In the political context, the international appetite for an ‘imposed’ partition is nil.
