In general, first strike was met by Syria very well, as I noted yesterday in an interview for "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" the Syrians have an saturated air defense system there, well, and they were waiting for a strike. Now the main question is, will there be new waves of strikes ...

 

Also number of Il-76s and Su-24 of SyAAF were moved to Qamishli several days ago, according to photos. 

Quote

France released information. 5 Raphael, an escort of 4x Mirage 2000-5 and 6 tankers. The whole operation was 10 hours long, refueling in the air 5 times. Luanched 9 missiles (and 3 more added by fleet from the frigate). But no word on the results so far ...

100+ cruise missiles against 5-6 shacks and 3 buildings in Damascus.

 

   Also, 76 missiles against this means 1 missile with 0.5 tons warhead per each 2 meters. Yeah, would totally belive that all of them were launched against this target and connected with it.

It works if you claim to have shot down missiles headed for 6+ targets when only three were shot at.

The key to propaganda is to use numbers that are somewhat believable. 3/4s of US, French, and British missiles weren't shot down by the Syrians. Pick a number that is realistic.

Funny how the people clearing up after the mess America just made, don't seem to require any NBC protection isn't it? 

 

The funny part being we didn’t use chemical weapons.

But you claim you bombed his manufacturing facilities and storage sites.....Where are the escaped materiels?  The toxic plume?

 

It's a load of bullshit and you we all know it.....The only people using chemical weapons are the terrorists that your government our governments fund, train, supply and now fly air cover for.....Frankly you we should all be ashamed.

mentioned this before and will repeat again. I think calling names and pretending that any side involved in the Syrian Civil War has clean hands is rather sanctimonious

 

Watching the pressers of the President and Secretary of State yesterday, and the Pentagon presser today, the Administration has repeated numerous times now that the goal of the US at the present is to defeat ISIS, it's not regime change.

 

To me it would behoove the Syrians - and their Russian and Iranian puppet masters - not to use chemical weapons. The Trump Administration has shown twice now that using chemical weapons is a Red Line that will be not only punished when crossed, but punishment will be greater each time such a transgression occurs. 

 

Perhaps in the future - if the Syrians really are innocent - the Assad regime will be more assiduous and forthcoming in regards to explaining itself.

And as for us evil Americans picking on poor brown people, I watched part of the British prime minister's address and she seemed far more gung-ho about regime change in Syria than our Administration officials are. 

 

Not sure yet about French posturing.

It seem that so far it was more or less the same reason you gave above.

To remind that if chemical weapons are used there will be retaliations.

 

By Jean-Yves Le Drian (French minister of foreign affairs):

 

« Le but de cette opération, c’était de détruire les outils chimiques clandestins du régime de Bachar Al-Assad et, à cet égard, l’objectif a été atteint. Une bonne partie de son arsenal chimique a été détruite », dont « beaucoup […] par les frappes de cette nuit ».
« Il faut que Bachar Al-Assad en tienne compte, ses alliés aussi. Si d’aventure elle [la ligne rouge] était refranchie, il y aurait une autre intervention, mais je pense que la leçon sera comprise. »

 

Meaning:

 

The goal of this operation was to destroy the clandestine chemical weapons  facility of the Bachar Al-Assad's regime, the objective have been met. A good part of his chemical arsenal have been destroyed, many by the strikes of this night.

Bachar Al-Assad and his allies will need to remember that. If the red line was crossed again, there would be another intervention, but I think they'll understand the lesson.

 

Appart from the political point of view, I think the strikes also served as training.

Apparently the 3 MdCN were fired by 3 different frigates, so it will serve as a validation of the capability and to label the missile as combat proven.

 

Same for the Air strikes.

The Rafales carrying the missiles are two seaters and flew from Saint-Dizier which mean that they are the strategic squadron 1/4 Gascogne:

Spoiler

 

 

The SCALP they fired this time is almost identical the ASMPA (300 kt warhead) they would fire for nuclear dissuasion.

So it most likely served as a demonstration of nuclear dissuasion capability.

In the French doctrine those missiles, supposed to be aimed at a threatening military force, are the last warning before full retaliation with SLBM.

 

Apparently the aerial strike force was composed of 5 Rafale (firing 9 SCALP), covered by 4 Mirage 2000 and 2 E3-F SDCA AWACS and refuelled by 5 C-135FR.

Yeah you are quite right, I'm absolutely sure she was every bit as gung-ho as Trump.....Doesn't make the story true or the attack any less illegal though (I've amended my post accordingly, my apologies to you.).

 

I'm just fucking annoyed and disappointed at what's been done in 'my name' once again.....Nobody asked the British people or even Parliament their opinion, just went ahead and did it.

 

But.....

Dude this is some disingenuous crap.....The OPCW are on their way to Douma to verify the facts.  Your ghastly crone at the UN made it clear that as they wouldn't apportion blame (just determine whether such an attack had actually even taken place), this wasn't satisfactory to the US and that they would act as judge, jury and executioner as usual.

Will anyone hold these aggressors responsible or will they get a pass again ? The US and their vassals are acting like a collective Hitler, totally out-of-control.

I don't know if it was posted here earlier, but Russia now wants to sell S-300 systems to Syria:

That will go down well with their southern neighbours.

 

But if the Russians decide to deliver it in person and maybe supply some technical advisers along with the weapons, it will be a whole different ball game.

      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

      T-14 ARMATA 
      (edited)
              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: 
      http://imgur.com/a/8Tn9b
       
      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.
