    Center of gravity so high that the slight dip at the side of the road tipped it. One dead.

    Picture of part of the Syrian S-300 installation in the Masyaf hills. Note the Russian flag is shown on the gates of what looks to be a special compound. Some think that this confirms Russian control over the decision to use the Syrian S-300.

    Does it look like the fence has remote monitoring sensors?

    They still doubt about who controls the S-300 ? Syruan can't touch them. Neither the russians deploys them.

    It's too late to detect intruders near the fence... they probably have pocket radar to detect humans in the area. But I don't understand whybthey keep them in the hills unused. Pretty easy targets.

    I would say the only force in the region that has any chance of getting to them would be Israel and I suspect the consequences of that... with it clearly being marked as Russian might be an S-400 battery and S-300V4 battery showing its real potential.

    The Russian flag on the fence says this is Russian stuff and is not fair game like Syrian or Iranian stuff is for Israel "defending" itself.

    It says nothing about who operates it, but those are just launchers in there... they could elevate those missile tubes and be ready to launch attacks against aircraft 400km away in less than 5 minutes... having it up in the mountains means the excuse... we didn't know it was a Chinese embassy... we were using old maps... wont cut it as an excuse.

    That photo shows launchers and transloaders and support trucks but that compound is clearly not big enough to hold the full battery... these might just be some of the launchers scattered around the place ready to launch if needed... I doubt they would show the radars and decoy and jammer equipment and ESM vehicles that a proper S-300 battery would operate with... but you can bet that it will have a Russian flag on the gate to prevent Israeli mistakes in terms of targeting... and the defence around the area will be rather good including against drones and standoff munitions.

    The Russian S-400 site is just down the road, maybe this is overflow storage for them within the SyAD site or even 'still Russian' hot standby spares for the S-300. No doubt both systems operate together. It certainly makes this site off limits to the IAF.

    RUSSIAN AMPLIA ON BASE IN SYRIAN

    Russia and Syria have expanded additional areas in the province of Latakia for the creation and development of a rehabilitation center and medical health at the base of Khmeimim, the main puesto of the advance of Russia in the Middle East.

    Strange that Turkey is allowing military overflights from Russia. It is allied with forces opposed to Russia and the legitimate
    Syrian government.

    Oh him, yeah that was beyond dumb.

    I do not know how they didn't see that IED, an IDF guy stepped on it tho and it just got the general. There was no remote detonation.

    I have often thought, that there can exist no blind spot in nature. No closed system. Since such a system implies a static and non evolving world. Contradictory to what we see and perfection of a created world.

    Yet we see the American policy of blocking Roads and Ships and Planes in the air. A closed system. A static system. But the world is dynamic and forever changing and moving on. But why is it important to know the world on a physical level? Because we are subject to these laws. Can not deviate from them, without being diminished in the world.
