This is absolutely retarded:

WASHINGTON—The U.S. could sanction Russia’s aircraft giant, JSC Sukhoi Co., if its planes are linked to chemical-weapons attacks in Syria, a top Trump administration official said Thursday, in another warning to Moscow as the U.S. tries to ward off a new assault on civilians.

 

I fully agree with the whole "if we don't sell them those weapons, somebody else will, and it may shift their political agenda against us later" type of thinking. Which is why I don't oppose Canada or the USA selling arms to incompetent turds like the KSA (although I believe there is a limit, where these countries become genocidal like Myanmar). This is exactly why they've been selling them weapons, and also exactly why it makes this statement so goddamn hypocritical. 

Don't judge others for realpolitiks when you're doing the same!

After recent talks

Quote

Idlib now - Putin and Sultan are walking around and screaming "nothing то sее here, go home guys"

Apperently operation is not happening (Shoigu told that on TV).

 

Quote

“We’ve agreed to create a demilitarized zone between the government troops and militants before October 15. The zone will be 15-20km wide, with full withdrawal of hardline militants from there, including the Jabhat Al-Nusra.”

 

Also, some sort of strikes in Lattakia

the SAA said in an official statement that the strike was carried out by warplanes of the Israeli Air Force. The target was a technical industrial complex in Latakia and two service members were killed as a result.

It appears that in the midst of the Israeli airstrikes in Latakia yesterday, the SAA has managed to bring down at least one missile called Il-20, operated by the RuAF:

In celebration of Amos 1's 30 years anniversary, the IMOD released some photos, with the most interesting being Assad's palace.

Oh well I guess that we are off the suspect list already then.

 

According to the Russian MoD the FREMM Auvergne fired missiles just around the time communication was lost with the airplane.

Both the US and France denied any involvement.

 

Any update on the localization of the crash site yet?

   As i said at our Discord yesterday, SAA don't have good radar coverage and don't have proper Air defence system of country, a lot of outdated equipment, and now unsurprising shitty result. If our MoD/politicians didn't had their heads deep in their asses, at least new radars could have given to SAA to at least alow them to see better.

Screenshot from the MoD briefing - you can see the trajectory of the Israeli F-16 (blue) and our IL-20 (red)

   According to the Ministry, IL-20 was shot down because of the actions of Israel, which on September 17, fired on the territory of Syria. On the planned rocket fire, Israel warned the Russian side a minute before the strike, because of which the IL-20 did not have time to bring into the safe zone.

   The Defense Ministry noted that the Israeli fighters F-16 "covered themselves with Russian aircraft", putting it on the line of fire of Syria's air defense. Russia views Israel's actions as hostile and "reserves the right to adequate response actions".

  I knew that Israeli strikes will end up for us with deaths of our soldiers, as they were bombing whatever they fucking wanted (and now they started to bomb Lattakia), but i was not expecting that first casualities from Israeli actions would be in that stupid way. Thanks to idiot in SAA that pressed buttons and Israeli strikes for starting this whole shit.

      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".

      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.
