    Wonder if they will upgrade the T-4.. it might pay off in the longer run. Less fuel expended and closer proxi to where the trouble is
    Thanks

    Probably, depending on what they will deploy there. Naturally i expect some improvements in facility and personnel amenities at least.
    ------

    Reading facebook group... I wonder why some people keep thinking that Russian SAM's in Syria will shoot (or have to shoot )anything for Syrian. Where were SyAAF or their air defense. and Later blamed the S-300's for "not intercepting" whatever Israeli shoot at Syria.

    From a strategical and tactical pov, it would be smart to stationed Attack Helios at T-4. With a BUK and Tor Polk. Fix the perimeter and secure the thing. Add some half decent personal facilities and call it the day.
    They can increase the pressure on the East/Northern Flank this way.
    Thanks

    because people don't understand diplomacy, the issues of shooting down an aircraft over a soverign state nor the limitations of an AAM system against a target further away from said AAM's range who is using cover of mountains and what not.

    It's in Russia interest to engage Israel unless some thing under the table is delivered by Israel.
    Where else you get free training for airdefence crew than intercepting incoming missiles . Or they can help Syaaf MIG-29 with electronic support.

    MiG-29SMT being deployed by Russia in Khmemeim airbase was mentioned last month, and now, we see it during the media tour for international journalist. Video below.

    Exclusive: #Russia deployed few numbers of Mig-29SMT in Khmemeim AB #Syria

    Also,
    @WaelHussaini
    A second major #RuAF AB in #Syria to be revealed soon.

    I wish that second airbase is Deir-Ez-Zor...

    Btw, the work continues to make DEZ airbase fully operational. Its critical for the security of Eastern Syria borders and securing the Syrian oil fields. The perimeter need to be enlarged at the earliest to make it safe for the transports to operate.

    ^ as a reminder to how the situation changed over the months to what it finally is...

    In addition tons of reconstruction machinery and equipments on the way
    https://muraselon.com/en/2017/09/vid...ion-aid-syria/
    The shipment of industrial aid that is currently being readied for dispatch will consist of “more than 40 units of construction equipment,” such as bulldozers, excavators and cranes, Russia’s Defense Ministry said. In addition, the country will receive “over 2 thousand tons of metal pipes” that would be used to restore water infrastructure as well as “hundreds of kilometers of high-voltage and fiber-optic cables” to restore electricity and communications lines.

    Couple of good reports from Vesti News (English subtitle) which is much much better than the almost useless RT. Those guys looks like interested in only taking salaries without much work, except for a handful of field reporters...

    The Kalibr launches on DEZ targets on 5 Sep. Good footage and inside view from the ship.



    Its now sort of a ritual for all Russian ships to unload their Kalibrs on the way to Sevastopol, so we probably have another set of 8 Kalibrs from the the two 636 on its way in the days ahead.



    As usual, a very good one from ANNA

    Looking at the TV reports on Kalibr launch..hmm so it does use cold launch method. However instead of using compressed gas like S-300 or other Russian SAM's It use explosive charge to generate the high pressure gas which expel the missile.

    Israel has no right to any claims over Syria and what they can/cannot do. Actually, Israel still illegally holds the Golan Heights. So they can screw themselves. They can continue launching missiles from Lebanese airspace into Syria, until Syria learns to place SHORADS at their respective tactical positions.

    That doesn't give them any right on their claims though, and in the end, they can continue to fund and build up their ISIS buddies, but in long run, it wont work in their favor. Already the Saudi's are starting to fold.

    It gives them EVERY right. If you start a war and then lose that war, do you think there are no consequences?

    It's been this way since the beginning of time.

    Lol, the only people ISIS hates more than the US is Israel.

    Yes, of course ISIS hates them...

    As for US:



    I know you want to ignore the evidence, but even then Bulgarian reporter admitted and found evidence of US supplying weapons to the terrorists (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-0...eapons-flights). Just like they did to the Muhajadeen back in the 80's. Keep lying to yourself. Just look at Austin's post.

    Israel makes it obvious when they are too busy bombing Syrian soldiers yet never struck any ISIS on their borders.

    As for the piece of land, no, actually they did take it by force and it still isn't theirs. But regardless, Israel is demanding even more by wanting Syrian troops and Iranian (whom were invited by Syria) away from the areas that are closer to their claimed border (Golan) but even then still on their own territory. Much like NATO bitching about Russia having military exercises right in its own country near borders but then at same time, hold countless others right at Russia's borders.

    BBC report from 11356 Admral Essen on the two 636 firing kalibr cruise missiles @ IS targets and from Khmeimim airbase. The report is basically, using rotten Rosenbergs words, his views on what Syrian war and Russian campaign is all about.

    The areas around DEZ airbase is slowly getting secured.


    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DJ1jE0xWAAMClt7.jpg: orig

    The southern border with Iraq has seen a renewed operation to reach the Euphrates, where as the Iraqi's have started their own operation along the Syrian border, most likely, to the displeasure of the muricans.


    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DJ4DUTAXUAAnKMJ.jpg: orig

    Its would be good to take into account that that the current Syrian/allies operation do not have much of a VKS air support (after all what can 2 dozen aircrafts do 24/7?) as the active front lines are dispersed across Syria. There is every possibility of the Jihadi coalition using their aircrafts to strike at Syrian/allies advance considering there is not much of any credible air-defence in the area(s) and no fighters available to counter (more like not having the stomach to put up a fight, coz lacking combat assets) the Jihadi aircrafts. It remains to be seen how much security VKS can provide to the Syrian/allies advance across the Euphrates in the face of jihadi coalition airpower.

    it does not surprise.

    DUBAI/RIYADH/LONDON (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia favours New York for the main foreign listing of state oil giant Aramco, even though some financial and legal advisers have recommended London as a less problematic and risky option, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

    French also paid the price for double crossing Saudis. initially opposed the Iran deal and all of sudden when it was signed. it completely changed.

    France bets on Arab Sunni states as Iran nuclear deal nears
    “Everyone is looking at Iran with greed,” said a senior French official. “It’s an important market, but it’s not the only one. There was a strategic decision to be made on who could face Iran as it pushes its pawns in the region. That’s Saudi Arabia and Egypt. That’s the choice we’ve made.”

    Russian MoD video on the Kalibrs fired from two Russian navy 636 on 14th Sep

    In your dreams perhaps.
    Islamic state and Jewish state are two sides of the same coin. Two fundamentalist entities whose core belief/strategy remains a state/system which is only meant for their respective followers. The Syrian war has showcased the coexistence of the IS and JS much more openly, if it was not before. They are not a threat to each other.

    In India there are few idiots who want to equate India with Israel due to the fight that the respective armed forces/paramilitaries have had. In both cases, the terrorists/opponents happen to be from the same religion, Islam. The similarity ends there. Period. Unlike a fundamentalist religious state, India is a multi-cultural secular nation/society since centuries and equating Israel to India is a disgrace and an insult to a great secular multi-cultural nation/civilisation like India.

    You're likely correct... I probability emphasized it a bit much....

    There are many Arabs in the Israeli political system. How many Jews/Christian are in ISIS?
