    What's a 3* doing there in mortar range, he is not an Iranian? RIP.

    Wonder how many of his team got hit at the same time? This is not good on any scale.

    Russian lieutenant general dies in #Daesh shelling in #Syria - MoD
    https://sptnkne.ws/f5Yp


    Russia's LT. Gen. Asapov, who helped Syrian forces during the operation to lift the blockade of Deir ez-Zor, died as a result of Daesh shelling, the Russian Defense Ministry said Sunday.

    Lt. Gen. Valery Asapov died after sustaining a "fatal injury" in the "sudden Daesh mortar shelling," the ministry said. The ministry specified that Asapov was a member of the group of Russian military advisers providing Syrian commanders with assistance during the operation aimed at the liberation of the city of Deir ez-Zor.

    According to the ministry, the deceased serviceman would recieve state award posthumously.

    In early September, the Syrian government troops, backed by Russian airstrikes, broke three years-long Daesh blockade to the west and south of Deir ez-Zor. On Monday, the Syrian Army crossed the Euphrates River with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces near Deir ez-Zor, knocking militants out from a number of settlements, and are currently developing an offensive eastward.


    This is him as a Major General 18 months ago, worked on the 'Ukraine' project.

    What's the reason Russia has not deployed Kornet D to Syria? Range up to 8 km, autotracker which means 1 shot 1 kill against fast moving vehicles, can simultaneously engage multiple targets, day night operation with thermal sight. Nothing IS can throw can get past it.

    Has anyone reviewed the video of the accident General-Colonel Andrey Serdyukov was involved in. I personally think the vehicle deliberately swerved into his vehicle, and specifically targeted his vehicle.

    The general killed today, a 3 star, usually has an operational or strategic command position.

    Lots of discussion on it a few pages back. Think you are barking up the wrong tree with your comment. That car was out of control and only 25% clipped the van, deliberate would have been head on.

    Today's 3* was probably in charge of Russian Army operational forces in Syria. Think there is a 4* in overall command.

    What it says is our generals lead from the front. Dangerous for sure but at the front they are acutely aware of the situation of the moment and can react instantly. Be nice if they named the two 06's who died with him and mentioned the wounded.

    US slang is 'Bull Colonel' or 'Bird Colonel'. Here, it's roughly translated as Full Colonel or Half Colonel. You got it right, Full Colonel.

    We are fine. My blue girl Sophia had a gentleman suitor from Rostov na Danu here for the late summer and she seems to be with child. We'll know this week, ultrasound. If she throws a good blue boy or girl we'll keep the child, all the rest will be sold. Since Deesik has a wandering eye it's possible Sophia's companion Ye'katarina is also expectant. She and Deesik are both black so the children will be black with about a 2% chance of a blue.

    All is well with you?

    Thanks, my father and brother were Half Colonels (Wg Cdr) and my father in law a Norwegian Colonel First Class, he should have been a 1* but the Norwegian military had their full complement of them and the politicians wouldn't wear another so they had to make up the First Class monica!

    All good here, my partner's daughter found she had a hole in the heart, at 37, and is having it stopped up next week. They go in through a groin artery and she is almost a day patient, amazing.

    Without breaching opsec is much of the gear going down south coming from your neck of the woods?

    Apparently, Russia decided to strengthen the capabilities of the Syrian army to move and supply troops on the eastern bank of the Euphrates and in recent days from Syria there have appeared photos like the new pontoon park PP-2005, and now also a video with the unloading of new ferry-bridge machines PMM-2M on base of Khemeymim.

    Israel is now threatening Russia .... who the f*ck do these clowns think they are .

    http://www.awdnews.com/society/israel%E2%80%99s-justice-minister-if-putin-wants-to-survive,-he-needs-to-keep-his-military-forces-out-of-syria%E2%80%99

    Israel’s justice minister :If Putin wants to survive, he needs to keep his military forces out of Syria’.


    Israel’s justice minister has warned the Syrian government that Israel “will do what is necessary” if President Bashar al-Assad does not keep Russia out of Syria.

    Ayelet Shaked said that If Putin wants to survive, he needs to keep his millitary forces out of Syria’.

    “Israel needs to pressure world powers to not allow Russia to establish a strong presence in Syria,” Shaked told Herzliya’s International Institute on Counterterrorism Conference. If the world powers did not comply with this demand, she said, then Israel will “do what we need to do.”

    The threats towards Syria come a time when pro- government forces have all but extinguished the presence of ISIS in Syria and are getting close to completely ending the six year long war.

    Russia Insider reports:

    The Israeli government – who last week bombed a Syrian military outpost, killing two soldiers – have now verbally challenged the Syrian government in the form of offering an ultimatum. The threats towards Syria come a time when the Assad government forces have all but extinguished the presence of Daesh in Syria and are coming close to completely ending the war. Israel meanwhile seem to be having an anxiety attack over the current situation and have been beating hard on the drums of war.

    In Netanyahu’s most recent meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, he frequently sought to voice his concerns over Russia, this was then – to Netanyahu’s frustration – brushed under the rug by Putin as it was viewed as a non-substantial issue. A paranoid Israeli government have meanwhile been busy preparing for war with pretty much every enemy they can since that meeting took place and don’t seem to be very happy with the way things are turning out in Syria, with the strengthening of the ‘axis of resistance’.

    etc etc etc

    I'm sure Vlad and Russia will be quaking in their boots NOT!!

    If Israel attacks Russia in Syria, Russia will fight back, and they will give Iran an OK to as well increase presence in the region. This would actually spiral out of control for Israel.

    it might all be lost in translation a bit. most likely SAA are going to suffer from increased israeli strikes - nothing the SAA can do about it unfortunately but suck them up. i cannot for the life of me see them targeting Russian forces unless through actions like the one that just killed senior officers at comms post.

    Note the personal threat against Putin by this sick f*ck. I know that America will do anything to suck Israeli schlong but
    this sort of talk could lead to a chain of unfortunate events that could get Isreal wiped off the face of the map. These
    idiots should not assume that nuclear warheads will be flying just between Russia and NATO.

    The best reply to Israeli attacks is to attack the SDF together with Daesh. They are the same US-Israeli racket to carve up Syria.
    If Isreal wants WWIII it better be prepared to eat nuclear blasts.

    Russia must have really f*cked up Isreal's big plans for the region.   Well, cry me a river.   Russia has to look at for number one.
    If Israel didn't want Russia to interfere then it shouldn't have gotten in bed with terrorist jihadis that attacked Russia from the 1990s
    onward.   At some point chutzpah comes to bite the perp in the ass.

    LOL. Even here the PTB would be annoyed if you coloured your daughter in blue. Blue Merle collies are a benign genetic mutation of a black collie. They are not common and to have one with symmetrical face and body markings as Sophia is very rare. We stopped the dog show gig 4 years ago after she made Champion of Ukraine, the endemic corruption got in to the dog show circuit. I will not buy a judge so the day she made champ is the day we quit.

    While we can see much of the harbor from the digs, we don't pay much attention to the daily comings and goings of ships. That being said, I think most of the odds and ends heading west are loaded from the mainland. To load them from here means a ferry across the Kerch Straights and then transport all the way across the island. Doesn't make much sense to do so when you can load them on the transports on the mainland.

    Photos are Sofik at 3 days, Sofik passed out drunk the night she retired from shows, and Sofik in all her glory. She does not lose her coat in spring, what you see is year 'round.

    I doubt that will happen until Syria can stand up on the World stage and say that as ISIS is now defeated the US objective is achieved. Then thank the Coalition for everything they have done to help and ask them to leave, announcing that the no-fly zone will be implemented to ensure that the whole country is safe, protected by a single air operation.

    They are not there yet and the Coalition seems to be working hard on their behalf to get them there Smile
