    Don't believe everything you hear. If they mentioned the one, they would have mentioned the others.

    Pontoon bridge built at DeZ...

    The Russian military under the fire of terrorists built a crossing across the Euphrates in Syria

    Also regarding the oil wells, the SAA could potentially advance from the direction of T2 station

    Is this the new bridge? Note the smoke or dust during construction. EDIT yes it is, really good video in that link. pity it was in Russian  Sad

    Actually looks like two bridges, one shorter than the other. Could there be two crossings, I know the river splits into multiple channels in places? EDIT May be foreshortening effect of long lens but there seems to be a different number of sections. Any other comment? Does the engineer mention it.

    That was posted yesterday so the bridge was completed yesterday or Sunday. Good going!

    They certainly moved a lot of bridging gear without much publicity!

    Russian Lieutenant-General Valery Asapov killed in Deir Ez Zor by IS.
    Photos(3) show him on 'frontline' during Euphrates river crossing.


    This photos are from first crossing, Truly risky position for him to be.
    2 types of Generals(w/orders):
    - To Attack.(from safe position behind frontiles)
    - Follow me in attack.

    A real leader. No helmet, no bullet proof gear, just getting stuck in.

    Looked to be a natural leader that his men would follow into Hell.

    Probably not happy behind a desk.

    RIP to the hero.

    But was his sacrifice necessary? 3 star generals are supposed to lead corps sized units and in western armies they are not even allowed to be close to the frontline. Dunno what is the Syrian and Russian perspective on that matter.

    What you guys think? I am unable to have my own opinion on that issue.

    Building a bridge exercise, not this one. No wonder the river flow was increased. Embedded video.

    This seems to be a TMM-3 type of bridge. Likely of the TMM-3 or TMM-3M variants (based also on Kraz trucks). The bridge would be mounted from land.

    These would be also material to be finnished soon in the Russian Armed Forces, and as consequence it is material that can be used with higher risks. Also it is safe to say that Syria has more of this near for fast reparations.

    Today, at 12:06 a.m., Tu-95MS bombers fired cruise missiles at objects of international terrorist groupings in #Syria.
    The aircraft scrambled from the Engels airfield and flew over territories of #Iran and #Iraq.
    In the Syria airspace, the strategic bombers fired Kh-101 cruise missiles at the most important #ISIS and #Jabhat_al_Nusra objects located in the provinces of #Deir_ez_Zor and #Idlib.
    The unexpected strikes eliminated terrorists’ command posts, hardware and manpower concentration areas as well as ammunition depots.
    The objective monitoring data has confirmed elimination of all assigned targets.
    Su-30 and Su-35 fighters were covering the Tu-95MS bombers.
    The strategic bombers successfully flew about 7,000 kilometers. They were in-flight refueled by Il-78 tanker aircraft.
    The missile strikes were carried out against the ISIS objects in order to support offensive of the #Syrian_Arab_Army to eliminate the last terrorists’ bridgehead.

    Poor bugger at the end got a face full of debris. Can't imagine, one minute you're driving into some facility like it's any other Tuesday, then, out of nowhere the roar of a cruise missile and a large explosion followed promptly by an expulsion of debris headed straight for you.

    Naturally the bugger probably deserved it, but never the less, crazy way to go.

    Generally speaking, generals should avoid exposing themselves....but I think it's not always black & white.

    In any case, this is a heavy blow

    Russian helicopter shot down by US-backed rebels in rural Hama using a TOW.

    Although it hasn't been confirmed and it could have been Syrian helicopter will wait for further news but hopefully it's fake news.
