   From a video posted earlier - one of notorious Osa vehicles, that were used by Jaish Al-Islam to shot down or damage several helicopters (from 2013 until IIRC 2017) was captured.


One 9K33 has been recaptured so far.




HTS jurist claim to have captured a UAE-built (and likely Turkish-supplied) Panthera F9 APC from JTS, so a heads up for when/if you start seeing this vehicle in future HTS videos.

Northen Hama operation:


   2018 (81) The military leader of the 1st.Division to me "The Syrian army withdrew from Kernaz town & 4 villages in vicinity, now Russia is bombing" #Hama

The same leader "We lost 98 soldiers from 6 factions, most martyrs due to Russian airstrikes after we entered Kernaz & vicinity, the Regime has no casualties because they withdrew after our first mortar".


   I didn't expect much from the annual "rebels" #Hama  offensive.But the extent of the attack's failure is a surprise. During  the past few years, militants were able to capture much more ground and  stay on the offensiveat least for a couple of days. #Syria


#SAA killed at least 6 commanders for militant groups while repelling #WrathOfGhouta OP in NW #Hama:

1. Muhammad Khattab - #JTS
2. Abu Sariyah Kernaz - JTS
3. Hassan Taleb - Jaish Al-‘Izzah
4. Abu ‘Asriyah - #AAS
5. Hatem Muhammad Ra’don - Jaish Al-Nasr
6. Abu Khattab - AAS

   Military representatives of Iran, Iraq, Russia and Syria held a meeting in Baghdad on Wednesday to coordinate efforts to combat terrorism, Tasnim News reported.


   Iraqi Defense Minister Erfan al-Khiyali visited the headquarters of the 4-party Center for Security Co-operation in Baghdad on Wednesday. At a meeting with representatives of the armed forces of Iran, Russia and Syria at the Center, Hiyali said that Iraq should cooperate with Tehran, Moscow and Damascus for a successful fight against terrorism. The minister also noted that the creation of the 4-sided Center after the invasion of Iraq by the terrorist group ISIS helped the Iraqi army defeat the terrorists and drive them out.


   Military attache of Iran Mostafa Moradyan welcomed the quadrilateral coalition as a successful model of regional cooperation in the fight against terrorism. He also called for joint action against extremist ideologies and sleeping terrorist cells after the breakdown of the self-proclaimed Caliphate in Syria and Iraq.


   In November 2017, the terrorists of ISIS were knocked out of their last stronghold in the Syrian Abu Kemal. The liberation of the city marked the end to the self-proclaimed caliphate of this group, which it announced in 2014.

      Greetings, I have been studying in the battle of Afrin since it started. Yet I still lack some information that can clearly analyse the opposite plan, war progress and order of battle of both side (Turkey army clear but YPG isn’t).
      I am spectacular interested in the process of the battle as it revealed the true strength of the 2nd largest NATO army. Also, the performance of YPG/YPJ militant against the regular modern army is meaningful to modern warfare study too.
      Hence, any kind man can help me on this field or even just give out a reading list?

      Hello, my friends and Kharkovites, take a sit and be ready for your brains to start to work - we are going to tell you a terrible secret of how to tell apart Soviet tanks that actually works like GLORIOUS T-80 and The Mighty T-72 from Kharkovites attempt to make a tank - the T-64. Many of capitalists Westerners have hard time understanding what tank is in front of them, even when they know smart words like "Kontakt-5" ERA. Ignoramus westerners!
         Because you are all were raised in several hundreds years old capitalism system all of you are blind consumer dummies, that need big noisy labels and shiny colorful things to be attached to product X to be sold to your ignorant heads and wallets, thats why we will need to start with basics. BASICS, DA? First - how to identify to which tank "family" particular MBT belongs to - to T-64 tree, or T-72 line, or Superior T-80 development project, vehicles that don't have big APPLE logo on them for you to understand what is in front of you. And how you can do it in your home without access to your local commie tank nerd? 
         Easy! Use this Putin approved guide "How to tell appart different families of Soviet and Russian tanks from each other using simple and easy to spot external features in 4 steps: a guide for ignorant western journalists and chairborn generals to not suck in their in-depth discussions on the Internet".
      Chapter 1: Where to look, what to see.
      T-64 - The Ugly Kharkovite tank that doesn't work 
         We will begin with T-64, a Kharkovite attempt to make a tank, which was so successful that Ural started to work on their replacement for T-64 known as T-72. Forget about different models of T-64, let's see what is similar between all of them.

      T-72 - the Mighty weapon of Workers and Peasants to smash westerners
         Unlike tank look-alike, made by Kharkovites mad mans, T-72 is true combat tank to fight with forces of evil like radical moderate barbarians and westerners. Thats why we need to learn how identify it from T-64 and you should remember it's frightening lines!

      The GLORIOUS T-80 - a Weapon to Destroy and Conquer bourgeois countries and shatter westerners army
         And now we are looking at the Pride of Party and Soviet army, a true tank to spearhead attacks on decadent westerners, a tank that will destroy countries by sucking their military budgets and dispersing their armies in vortex of air, left from high-speed charge by the GLORIOUS T-80!

      T-14 ARMATA 
              This thread is about glorious russian MBT T-14, known as "Armada", "T-95", "black eagle", "T-99" and other stupid Western names given to Object 148 (T-14 in some recent documents). Here is number of images connected to that vehicle.

      Official model of unknown "artillery vehicle". Yeah, Putin, we know that this is T-14. Note Gatling gun on turret right side.
      Artist impression of T-14 based on known model, by Fyodor Podporin. 

      T-14 will use Relikt ERA, which is considerable improvement over Kontakt-5 in resisting to tandem HEAT warheads and EFPs.

      Side skirts would be thicker on a real vehicle, i think. Relikt have AFAIK bigger size than Kontakt-5 ERA build-in blocks.

      Whole album with renders: 
      Video of same render from same artist:

            People expect that tank would have turret weapon system like what you see on the BMP-3 "Bakhcha-U" turret - a lot of weapons in one turret for one gunner to work with. T-14 is rumored to be equipped with 30 (or even 57) mm autocannon, 4-6 barrel gatling type MG/HMG, new 125 (2A82) or even 152 mm (2A83) smoothbore cannons. Turret is unmanned, crew of 3 would be located in frontal part of hull, behind very serious frontal armor inside of compartment, well protected from all directions. Cannon would be loaded by new autoloading device. I hope that Burevestnik is working on them, those guys managed to make 100 mm Naval gun with RoF of 300 shots per minute.
            I really like how turret looks, but i don't understand why there is such a big turret "busket" for unmanned turret with all ammo placed inside of hull in special armored housing. Also, i don't see gunner sight and proposed FSC radar on 3D model (i assume that panoramic sight is for commander). Laser sensors on 3D model are from T-90A variant of "Shtora".
            Some officials mentioned works on new active protection system, that consist of powerfull radar station, that can work on "long ranges" and engage incoming projectiles (missiles) with that gatling MG. Will this system survive development stage and be presented on serial tanks is unknown. Although turret for T-15 Armata-based IFV already was shown with new APS "Afganit".
            If you pay attention you may see that artist used T-80 rollers for Armata chassis, and this is not a mistake - according to some sources Armata heavy chassis will use T-80 or T-80-like rollers to save weight. And looking at rear part of that tank you may notice a engine deck from gas-turbine equipped version of the T-80, which can be mistake becuase MoD want Armata with new ~1500 HP diesel engine.
