    Combat approved says nothing about the stuff they present. It's really a poor quality show. The first ones gave at least some technical data.

    Now they show videos mostly taken from youtube and repeat the same thing over and over again.

    They said like 30 times su-30 is manoevrable and can do loops. We don't really care. Talk about how they faced israeli f-15 or f-35. About their radar or weapons.

    I don't think its purpose is for sharing new information to enthusiasts like us... it is more a coffee book table magazine... just getting it out to the general public that after 30 years of seeing precision strikes from US and western aircraft since 1991 that there are some Russian planes that can do that too.

    The main ignorance they are fighting is lack of general knowledge in the west about Russian equipment... lets face it most westerners might be able to mention Scud missiles but most think they are Iraqi. Probably more westerners know about MiGs because it is simpler than Sukhoi, but they probably know about Tupolevs and Ilyusions as well... can't really expect an enormous amount more than that.

    I suspect these episodes are very careful about the information they release because the US and ISIS will both be looking for weak points and avenues of attack...

    This is a live war zone situation... so better safe than sorry...

    There is believed to be an American team in Damascus currently so this is interesting.

    An Il-62 of the Russian Aerospace Forces arrived in Syria from Russia today. Apparently he took someone important, since they sent a plane equipped with special communication and encryption VHF equipment "Surgut".

    Not seen this number of Il-76 there for a long while, with an An-124 arriving today not in the photo. It looks like a build up to something.

    Turkey is removing soldier from its posts in SAA controled territory which indicates an upcoming offensive in Idlib.

    Russia already bombed them the other day as a warning for turkey's involvement in NK. Since thry didn't stop in NK, Russia may open a new front for them.

    That could also trigger new fights in Lybia too with precision strike on what's left of Turkey's AD there.

    Turkey seems to be moving its gun fodder footsoldiers from Libya to AK pretty quickly. A strike there would make sense but there is a pretty strong ceasefire in operation so probably not.

    If Aftar is sure to win he will attack. Wiyhout Turkish drones he will quickly win.

    All 3 turkish interventions are total failures anyway. Erdogan won nothing from them.

    Looks like the left runway extensions you can see in my photo above are making progress. Wonder why they feel the need to extend it by 2-300+ meters?

    This photo shows the northern end work underway with new inter runway asphalt. Also shows that the only aircraft out in the open are the QRA at the end of the right runway. Also shows all the HES for the helicopters.

    Once both runways are operational they will really be able to step up the operational tempo, not that it was bad before.

    I guess they were sick of the Douma Massacre shenanigans:

    Pretty clear from the leaks and all the crap regarding the OPCW about faked details and revised reports that it is now no longer an independent international organisations working in everybodys best interests... it is now a tool for the west... no reason to give legitimacy to that...

    Wonder why they feel the need to extend it by 2-300+ meters?

    Would allow bigger aircraft to operate from the airfield and would also allow existing types to operate at higher weights too.

    Should also make it a little safer in case of an emergency...

    Members of the Russian Armed Forces have formed joint patrols with SAA fighters to monitor the situation on the demarcation line (the “Bravo” line) between Syrian and Israeli army forces in the Golan Heights, Quneitra province.

    According to representatives of the Russian military command, soldiers of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation monitor compliance with the ceasefire between the parties, and also "prevent attacks and provocations" in the area.

    All that stuff that coming over from Russia, might have been for new HQ and new bases.

    Indeed, probably a ship load of gear. Having all this multi faceted on the job training over a huge populated area with associated real world weapons testing and sales promotion is really very valuable. Russia is starting to catch up with US/NATO's core of experienced military.
