those outdated choppers can still be useful if used correctly ,for providing real time information on
turkey army and their backed jihadist positions ,they also ideal for sending major supplies and new troops fast..
and evacuating critically wounded soldiers.. they however should not be used the way Syria military use them
for flying above enemy zones.. and more ideal scenario will be the chopper to stay 5km behind the front line monitor all movements.. spy drones also could be useful. or kamikazi drones.
Turkish troops themselves should fight with these armored vehicles on the front-lines, as the FSA are not familiar with them, and do not know how to properly use them to a good effect.
While you rejoice over the FSA fleeing keep in mind that this whole offensive is a humanitarian catastrophe.
I also wonder if blindly supporting the tyrannical Alawite minority is really worth a serious deterioration in relations with Turkey.
It is they who sheltered Nazi war criminals after the war, despite being a Soviet Block state. I find them disgusting.
I think that it is not worth it.
You know the Black Sea Fleet needs to sail through the Turkish straits to get to Syria.
Cannot believe the stupidity of the individuals posting here.
