Syrian conflict.

Recommended Posts

Another look at sat photos from object, that US claimed to be hit by 22 cruise missiles

Number 5 and 6 hit open fields, maybe those 2 are missiles that were claimed to be jammed by EW or maybe were hit by short range AA, which changed their trajectory. Number 4 hit kind of nothing, if it was cruise missile hit.

NEW MAP: Syrian Government Forces have secured the entire East- #Ghouta area near the capital #Damascus. This probably marks the most decisive victory in this war, which made the redeployment of sev. 10K troops possible. #Syria

@LoooSeR How was it reported in Russian media?

From the Ministry of Defense of Russia, just now.


   The Syrian air defense used 112 anti-aircraft missiles to repel the strike of the United States, France and Britain: 

  • 25 rockets from the "Pantsir" complex. Konashenkov specified that 25 rockets were fired from the "Pantsir-S1", they hit 23 targets
  • "Buk" - 29 launched, 24 hits.
  • "Osa" - 11 launched, 5 hits.
  • S-125 - 13, 5 hits.
  • "Strela-10" - 5 launches, 3 hits.
  • "Kvadrat" - 21 launched, 11 hits.
  • S-200 - "eight missiles were fired, targets were not hit" Konashenkov said.

   He added that "no one should be deceived by the low performance of the S-200 air defense missile system, since the complex is designed primarily to destroy aircraft and recently destroyed a fighter of one of the neighboring states.

   The official representative of the Defense Ministry drew attention to the fact that the "Pantsir-S1" of Russian production, previously delivered to the Armed Forces of Syria, showed almost 100% efficiency.

So, according to MoD S-200 have 0% effectivness against cruise missiles. And appears that Isreali jet was shot down by it.

Is the OPCW in any way related to the UNSC? I know Russia recently vetoed a UNSC resolution aimed at an inquiry into the Douma gas attack, so depending on what the answer to my first question is, it could either explain it or not. 

Though I do trust OPCW to be objective, the UN not so much. They never have been objective.

They're referring to the February incident.

AFAIK it is UN affiliated.

After that just the regular SC play.

 

Russia putting veto on French/UK/US motions and vice-versa, China abstaining most of the time.

 

The recent Russian veto was on authorizing the OPCW or a new similar organization to investigate on who was responsible for the chemical attack.

Right now the OPCW can only investigate to determine whether or not a chemical attack took place in Douma with the current UN mandate.

 

On the previous matter, apparently Russia invoked security problems

Robert Fisk is one of the very few excellent investigative journalists still employed in the UK. He is twice winner of the British Press Awards‘ Journalist of the Year prize, and seven time winner of the British Press Awards’ Foreign Correspondent of the Year. He is extremely smart and knows the Middle East very well. He has just made his way – not accompanied by Russian or Syrian government officials – to Douma and this is what he reports.

Well, at least this one is more useful than the 40 they shot into thin air after the strike.

Chemical attack or no, it's not really surprising given that the Syrian Army now owns Douma. 

 

"Oh yeah. We treated tons of patients suffering from exposure, many of whom claimed to see the helicopter which dropped it!"

I would like to see evidence of that. You are literally first who i saw that claims this.

 

   And under evidence i mean something better than Baghdad Bob from Pentagon telling about all 105 missiles hit their targets. Because like half or more cruise missiles managed to disappear mid air, apparently. It is funny how Moscow Pavel and Damascus Walid were closer to what photos/sat images suggests than info from Pentagon Joe.

I heard through a grapevine that several Russians were killed in the recent Tomahawk strikes... I pray these aren't true. 

As Deir EzZor event showed, nobody cares IRL about that.

      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.
