Syrian conflict.

Recommended Posts

First satellite photos showing the 'glass house' and a nearby warehouse being the subject of Israeli attacks in Syria past week.

 

What interested me is the fact that the glass house remained intact but was probably bombed with acoustic bombs to force its evacuation.

For those who are unaware or have forgotten, the "glass house" is Iran's center of operations, their HQ in Syria. It has been under watch by many for quite some time.

 

I think it was a good choice to keep it intact. This way they ensured the Iranians will return to it when things calm down and keep running ops from there, meaning that if things really escalate to a full blown conflict, whoever will be there will be a very easy target, instead of having to look for them in new, better concealed spots they may find had it been destroyed, throwing away years of intelligence.

 

As for how it has been done; It could have been evacuated due to the sound of distant explosions of a nearby warehouse just several kilometers from there (which likely housed the yet untested indigenous Iranian "3rd of Khordad" SAM). But I think a more likely scenario would be using the Mikholit, which are small missiles with a low weight and no warhead, that emit a sound that imitates an explosion but don't actually cause any harm to the building. They were developed for the conflicts in Gaza and have been used extensively in the 2012 and 2014 operations, effectively causing many residents to leave their buildings and neighborhoods before attacks or airstrikes, thus significantly reducing civilian casualties. 

 

What a Mikholit looks like:

Interesting, could you tell us more? The only things I can find on the english web related to them is some bleating from left-wing press about israeli forces creating sonic booms over disputed territories in '05, and the standard use of serious loudspeakers for crowd dispersal

There isn't much to tell other than what I have already told. These are very small missiles that are reportedly usually carried by UAVs (such as Hermes 450), and are launched at targets that are either about to be bombed (several minutes), or as warning in a general way, such as to avoid bunching up or that certain areas are dangerous.

 

If you want to look up for more info on your own, your best bet would be "Knock On The Roof Protocol". 

 

It was also often criticized for providing combatants with a warning that the IDF knows their location and is about to bomb, giving them plenty of time to flee. But I think, and the IDF thinks as well, that this is a worthwhile risk. 

 

Sonic booms are still somewhat of a thing. One of these above the house of a prominent Hamas leader will give him a good spook. Although these only happen when things escalate pretty badly.

 

 

EDIT: There are plenty of Youtube videos if you search "knock on the roof" that show this in action. I would link some but I am on my phone and it is nap time.

This is a terrible analogy by the way, unless you think Syria was a victim in the Six Day war.

 

Sorry, what analogy would you prefer?

 

Murderous fascist psychopath?

Homicidal child rapist?

 

There are just so many to choose from!  Why not take a look and choose your own:

BREAKING: #Iran's Islamic regime is unable to retaliate #Israel's attacks at #IRGC but expects #Syria to slam #Israel. Today, Falahat-Pisheh, Islamic Regime PM & Foreign Policy Committee member warned #Syria's president #Assad to not follow #Russia's president #Putin orders!!!

 

Heshmatollah Falahat-Pisheh said: "Passive behavior of #Syria|n president regarding to the incident [#Israel's strikes against #IRGC on May 10] is unacceptable. Today #Assad exists in #Syria only because of our advisory supports & Iranians who died in past six years in Syria."

   Iran is in tricky position now after US flushed down the toilet nuclear deal and will put back wide sanctions against industry/money etc. of Iran and even claimed that sanctions will be put against EU if they will not follow them. Russian politicians (i posted quote in general news thread) said that they will supply Iran with what we want anyway, which means that now Russia can get some influence on Iran, which, depending how well will be handled, may end well or terrible, something like modern version of what happened with Griboedov.

Something that actually represents the relationship between Syria and Israel instead of a lazy fuck da joos!

      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.

      Yes
       
      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?
