   As reported on ItaMilRadar on Twitter.com, S102B Korpen radio reconnaissance aircraft (number 102003, call sign SVF647) of Swedish air force from May 1, 2018 makes regular reconnaissance flights from the airfield of Larnaca in Cyprus over the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea along the coast of Syria , Lebanon and Israel. On average two flights a day are made. It is noted that, undoubtedly, the main purpose of these flights is to conduct reconnaissance with regard to Russian military facilities in Syria and Russian military activities in Syria.

Better equipped than E. #Ghouta Rebels, N. #Homs Rebels handed over roughly half of their armoured fleet. Also some medium & heavy weapons but no #ATGM|s.

My opinion of Counterpunch just hit an all time low.....Feeble anti-UN hit piece, wrapped up in a festering crock of shit:

 

https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/05/04/syrias-new-law-number-ten-devastates-sunni-refugees/

 

To the victor the spoils dumbass!  :rolleyes: 

 

You can bet your life that if it was Halliburton or The Carlyle Group benefitting from the war, rather than Bashar al Assad we wouldn't hear so much as a single bleat from this whining corporate shill.....Refugees or no bloody refugees.

 

And all that bullshit is merely a setup for the dig at the UN in the final paragraph:

Until then, the global community must apply economic and political pressure to the current regime in Syria to comply with international law and end the crimes against humanity that underpin Property Law Number Ten. Unfortunately, the UN Security Council has been neutered by vetoes and can do little more than remonstrate objections to what is happening to Syrian refugee’s real estate and personal property.

 

Franklin Lamb you truly are a wanker!  :)

 

PS - Having looked at a few more articles on the site, I'm wondering if this shite wasn't actually a response to Robert Fisk's piece, which must be utterly terrifying for the sort of vermin that Lamb clearly represents:

Su-30SM with both pilots, now this.

Quote

As it became known to "Kommersant", on the night of May 7, the Russian aerospace force (VCS) lost Ka-52 "Alligator" attack helicopter in Syria. According to the official version, helicopter could crashed due to a technical malfunction, unofficial - it was shot down by radical Islamists from the MANPADS during a scheduled flight. Both pilots were killed. The catastrophe was the seventh for Russian helicopters and the first for the Ka-52s involved in the Syrian campaign since March 2016.

Things getting tenser in Israel.
On Sunday it was revealed that irregular movements of Hezbollah and Iranian forces in Syria were spotted, and it was estimated with high likelihood that they are planning to launch precision guided munitions at Israeli military targets in the north of the state.
Earlier today, shelters in northern municipalities were ordered to be opened, and reservists were called up in certain locations.

Right now there are reports of an Israeli airstrike in Syria of yet another Iranian military installation, this time the missiles that were spotted on Sunday.
 

Tensions have gone up after Iran announced they will retaliate for the past airstrike on the IRGC troops in the T4 base.

It seems the Pentagon confirmed that during last night's Israeli strike on 5 Syrian targets, the missiles that were destroyed on the ground were already in prepared positions and aimed, and IDF sources say they were few minutes away from firing. 

 

Netanyahu is in Russia again now, this time also visiting the victory day parade as an honorary guest. This whole thing is... interesting.

And yet another incident now:

https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Shots-fired-towards-Israeli-communities-in-the-Golan-556017

 

Iranian forces (Quds forces of the IRGC) fired 20 rockets into Israel at 00:10, May 10th 2018. No material damage, injuries, or loss of life. 

This is why Israel has been pushing towards not having Iranian presence beyond a certain point. Now it seems the road is paved to a conflict. I know who I will be blaming for this, because if the IDF and the government would actually follow their red lines, and do all they can to prevent Iranian entrenchment in the region, at least in the 20km+ near the border as they said, then not only would this not happen, but Iran would not be able to escalate anything, whether it wanted to or not. Is it too much to ask to just go to work every day, without worrying about rockets? Jeez.

There are forces on both sides that have been pushing for war between Iran and Israel/Saudi Arabia for a while now.  I've been saying that for months and months.

...Excuse me?

Yeah the SAA was left out of this, and only Iranian targets were fired upon at the beginning. But the SAA fired SAM's so the IAF 'neutralized' 5 batteries.

Yuri Lyamin about events.

   On the night of 9 to 10 May, Israeli aircraft dealt multiple strikes to the positions of the Syrian army and its Iranian allies in southern Syria, in turn, they launched rockets from the MLRS on Israeli positions in the Golan Heights. Each side, as usually, states that their opponent started, but in general it does not really matter, given the tense situation there in recent times and the continuing regular Israeli strikes on Syria. In addition to the attacks on the alleged Iranian targets, the press service of the Israeli army reports of strikes on Syria's air defense positions, which seem to have been in fact one of the main goals, since there are alleged attacks on the positions of the S-75, S-200, Buk- M2E and "Pantsir-S1"

 

   In addition, the Israeli side claims that they destroyed the Iranian Uragan MLRS, but I'll note here that Iran did not have any MLRS and there is not a single known fact of their use in Syria by Iranians. Those extremely few "Hurricanes" [Uragans] that Syria has been used by only Syrian military, judging by all the known evidence with them. By the way, it seems that the press service of the IDF also hires incopetent people, since in the video about the "Uragan" they mixed up a pile of photos of "Uragan" and "Smerch" MRLS

   Data of the Russian Ministry of Defense:
   MOSCOW, May 10. / TASS /. Israel during the attack on May 10 launched over 70 air and tactical missiles on Syria, Syrian air defense forces shot down more than half of them. This was reported on Thursday to journalists in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
   As noted in the ministry, on May 10, from 01:45 to 03:45 Moscow time, the Armed Forces of Israel, on the pretext of responding to the shelling of Israeli positions in the Golan Heights area by armed formations, attacked Syria. "The attack involved 28 Israeli F-15s and F-16s, which fired around 60 air-to-surface missiles in various regions of Syria, as well as more than 10 tactical surface-to-surface missiles, the department informed.

 

   According to the Defense Ministry, "the locations of the deployment of Iranian armed units, as well as the positions of the Syrian army's air defense in the region of Damascus and in the south of Syria," were attacked. " "In the course of repelling the Israeli attack by Syrian air defense, over half of the missiles were shot down," the ministry said.

 

   The department also noted that data on the damage caused to Iranian armed forces, as well as military and civil infrastructure of Syria are being clarified.

      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!

      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.

      i personally support it, by finding the KGB Felix Dzerzhinsky greatly improved state scurrility both inside the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and abroad (their jurisdiction was only domestic, but they kept the internationally influential people safe at night)   a dedicated defender of both the Revolution and all the Soviet peoples     what do you think of this news?
