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.

Doubt it. On one hand, Russia can supply the S-300 in its older variants, and have it destroyed in the next attack as if nothing happened, because that system is very familiar to the west (for example Greece). Russia will be able to say it's just an older variant but it'll have no tactical yield.

Or Russia could supply one of the more modern versions, be completely in the dark as to whether it will work, and definitely suffer on the marketing of it later.

Reports of another attack are breaking, this one in Aleppo, targeting Iranian assets.....Apparently the handiwork of Israel:

Creo que ha quedado demostrado que EEUU ha mentido en dos aspectos fundamentales de este ataque:

1º Que ningún misil fue derribado

2º Que se lanzaron 105 misiles contra 3 instalaciones.

 

"I think it has been shown that the US has lied in two fundamental aspects of this attack:

1º That no missile was shot down

2º That 105 missiles were launched against 3 installations."

They really didn't like that first building one little bit, did they?  :P

 

It is starting to look like a bit of a nothing-burger attack again though isn't it.....What's the total damage?  If we assume that Assad doesn't actually have a chemical weapons program (keep in mind that history broadly demonstrates that US/UK claims on this subject tend to be fabrications) then I'd say it amounds to a 100+ cruise missile dent in western cash-flow and SFA to Assad.  :rolleyes:

It appears that this position was AA position, probably no longer used for AA work, but to storage some shit

   All targeted buildings were build without any fortification work done, unlike all other parts of this position. Storage area for additional missiles had walls build around it with for protection.

Some random thoughts on this strike.

 

1. A 70% loss rate for non-stealth munitions is actually low for an attack on contested airspace.  So the Russian MOD numbers for an attack on contested airspace are if anything, low.  I'd personally expect closer to 80-85% losses on non-stealthed munitions, given my understanding of US attack doctrine in contested airspace.  YMMV.

 

2. The sat photos of the targets hit do not indicate damage from 100+ missiles.

 

3. Given that these were supposed to be chemical weapons sites, there is little, if any indication of secondary exposure to nerve agents if you hit an actual chemical weapons site.

1) SAA use old system, i think 70 missiles out of 105 is a lie by MoD, would expect 20-40 intercepted as more realistic number. Only system with high chances of interception of cruise missiles are Buk-M2Es and Pantsirs, probably Pechoras, which Syria have in low numbers

 

2) Photos from those places would help

 

3) They destroyed some shacks, insides of which are very unlikely to contain anything explosive or chemical dangerous and 3 building in the middle of capital with even less chanses to be anything related to storage of CW.

My speculation is that 76mm missiles were fired with the notion that at least half would be intercepted because there was a SAM base VERY close to Barzah. 

MoD claims 7 out of 30

Military Correspondent of the "KP" Alexander Kots on the ruins of the Research Institute for the Development of the Pharmaceutical and Chemical Industry Barze in Damascus met with staff

wx1080.jpg

 

Quote

"The theory was taught here," Jarub Haddur shows in a remotely reminiscent cabinet of concrete trash with a collapsed staircase. "- Here were taught natural sciences. Nearby - the laboratory for scientific experiments. Here was the training equipment. No poisonous substances were developed here, simply there was no necessary equipment for this."

 

Quote

- What did you teach?

- Information technology. Everything that is connected with computers, hardware, software, basic network technologies, advanced. Courses on working with operating systems ... That's exactly where our audiences were ... - the teacher thinks a little. "But we will rebuild everything anew, every brick destroyed by the Americans, we will restore."

   Logic attacks on this object is difficult to understand. The Institute is located in a dense urban area. And if some poisonous substances were actually produced in this scientific research institute, the Americans were very much in danger of organizing a local chemical catastrophe in one of the districts of the Syrian capital. And, perhaps, they must be very confident that there are no weapons of mass destruction in this scientific research institute, so that without the slightest fear they leveled it to the ground.

   152 mm D-20 in Douma. As you see they fired it from inside of this building (black marks are covering upper part of the room walls and pillars). Room acted as some sort of giant suppressor.

      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 
      (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.
