    They really are arming their terrorists well(the money for this most likely came from the Saudis).

    Could be captured from Iraqi security forces, i mean pic itself does not prove much since this is quite widespread weapon, however yeah, they did arm them, abit with intention abit by horrible mistakes.

    Most Iraqi's know by now that the US, is not in their country(Iraq) to help but to prolong the war. And that is why most Iraqi's(politicians, Army and normal people) want Russia to conduct air strikes in Iraq because the US has not bombed the isis terrorists but helped the isis terrorists(the isis terrorists are after all made by the US, supported by the US and armed by the US).

    By bombing isis terrorists in Syria, Russia has given the Iraqi's another choice they can turn to(before it was just US/NATO), now that the Iraqi's are turning toward Russia, the US is panicking and we might see US bomb isis and not just fake targets. If Russia does air strikes in Iraq, it would be the best thing for the country(Iraq).

    Iraq did not even get such M4 modifications from the US. But Turkey has been their import location for a long time, they're not short of cool add ons like that.

    Yeah, and in way too big quantities to be from Russia. There are also Bulgarian Og-7 like warheads. Warsaw Pact poodles are making a killing.

    IS member from Russia Dagestan captured in Iraq, interviewed and he was allowed to speak to his family in Russia, family says he was radicalised in a Salafi mosque plead for his return. On one hand those guys would behead and burn alive soldiers/civillians they get their hands on, he would do it as well but when they get captured they manage to put up such scenes to play with good people's feelings.

    Captured guy speaks Russian in vid (I think).

    I think they should transfer him to Russian Spetnaz GRU for questioning, he'll be more useful that way then outright executing him. However, after they're finished interrogating him, if he were to die from some 'unfortunate circumstances'.... Wink

    Looks like a 45 tube launcher and, with comparison with the wheels could be 300mm tubes. An awful lot of firepower. Shows good skill to hit the target, wonder if they fired a couple of ranging shots first.

    Would not take much skill at all... just think of getting 200 x 120mm mortars all packed in a truck chassis and a specific angle ready to fire with a single round in their chambers. the specific angle is fixed and therefore so is their range and direction. Park the truck in the right distance and angle to the target and fire all the mortars at once... The natural ballistic spread of the weapons means very good coverage of the target at pretty much any range they could hit.

    they cant fire them all at once, if even there were like reccoiles rifles or MLRS then the blast waves's would flip the truck, and if not the chassis would get smashed to pieces under the recoil pressure.
    they can position this truck and fire them 1, 2 maybe 3 at a time

    That would happen to the truck if they fired them in full barrage.



    Actually far worse with most probably explosions after that truck gets tilted and rolls over while rocket smashes to ground.

    Iraq Daesh published picture's of Snipers in Amiriyat, Fallujah one of which seems to be using OSIRIS T5000.

    IRAQ - Fight on Islamic State: News #1 - Page 31 BeZKVlG

    It was probably seized from Iraqi security forces.

    "The presence of the Russian ORSIS T-5000 sniper rifles in Iraq is more readily explained, with the Iraqi government having purchased them from Russia as part of a recent, sizeable arms deal. As with the AM50, pictures of the T-5000 began to appear around March 2014. In one of the photos we can see Iraqi soldiers with both AM50 and ORSIS T-5000 rifles The ORSIS T-5000 is a precision bolt-action sniper rifle fed from a detachable box magazine (5 or 10 rounds). Manufactured in Moscow at Promtechnologies Group’s ORSIS1 rifle factory, the T-5000 is produced in three different calibres: 7.62 x 51 mm (.308 Winchester), .300 Winchester Magnum, and .338 Lapua Magnum . There is currently no clear indication of which calibre, or combination of calibres, Iraq purchased. "

    I quite agree, but if the truck trailer has half a dozen pallet jacks to stabilise it or a simple bracing structure that is deployed when the trailer is stopped they could empty 200 120mm tubes very very rapidly... they could time them so that 10 tubes fire from different places at one time so as to balance the recoil and prevent the trailer from being over turned...

    Looks very unprofessional, just covering everything, but nothing specific. If the entire place is just terrorist infested and no civilians than use TOS1 and vaporize them along with their US paychecks.
