Claims that those guys were under our command in Syria

 

Since I'm lazy I'm just gonna quote myself from yesterday when this image was posted on r/militaryporn:

 

"Some context since the OP contains very little information:

The defence and security news site, «Aldrimer», recently reported on an interview that had been published on the Swedish far right website «Skandinavisk frihet». In this interview, a man claimed to have served in a unit of Scandinavian volunteers called «Þorbrandr», and that this unit had been fighting for the Russians in Syria during the winter, spring and summer of 2017. The Norwegian flag was apparently the unit insignia, and its commander a Norwegian man who went under the nickname «Norðmaður».

 

The full Aldrimer article with more details and photos (just try your luck with google translate or another translate function): https://www.aldrimer.no/nordmenn-kjempet-pa-russisk-side-i-syria/

 

Now, if this was something that actually happened or just some Russian psyops shenanigans at work, I do not know..."

   Best kind of psyops our MoD managed to do is to write "For Paris" on one bomb after certain events in Paris. Also, aren't those guys neo-nazis? That would be kind of very bad psy ops to work with that kind of humans.

This is just pure speculation on my part, but one could’ve faked a story about a Scandinavian unit kicking ass in Syria to tempt other far right members to travel down there. Neo Nazis are scum of the earth. Scum of the earth who happens to love war and killing, and it's because of that that they could potentially make for some pretty decent cannon fodder in Syria, provided you can control them, of course. No one in Scandinavia cares if these people end up dead, and more importantly, no one in Russia cares if these people end up dead, which means less crying mothers taking to the street to protest the war. And even if they do end up surviving the fighting, then they aren't your problem anymore anyway. They’re the problem of their home countries who now have to keep an even closer eye on them as they represent a much larger threat than they did before (and it would be another way for Russia to stick it to the countries that are currently placing sanctions on it).

 

Come to think of it, the above also works if it's a true story (or if there is some semblance of truth to it at least).

 

The biggest drawback of this, however, is as you've pointed out that it's very bad PR (though maybe not as bad as it should be since people didn't really seem to care THAT much about it during the Ukraine conflict) to be associated with such people, and if this was indeed a real thing, then it looks like they've done an extremely good job at keeping it under the radar since the anonymous interview and those photos are really the only "evidence" we have that this unit even existed. The fact that the interview was originally published on a relatively obscure far right website could also suggest that it might never have been intended to spread outside of that community if it was a controlled leak or made up story.

 

 

But again, this is just pure speculation.

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

 

Dude did you even read the article?  

 

Those are not my 'lazy' descriptions, they were all based on direct quotes from Jewish Israeli commentators, including the perpetrators.

It is kind of irrelevant to current situation anyway.

      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.

      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?
