   DAMASK, Apr 15 - RIA News. The Syrian Oil Ministry on Monday imposed additional restrictions on refueling cars due to the "gasoline crisis" and colossal queues at gas stations: private cars can only be filled with 20 liters every five days, according to al-Watan.
   The gasoline crisis in Syria has been lasting for more than a week: the queue to the gas stations in Damascus reaches 150-200 cars, a similar situation in other cities, where in lines there are already conflicts with the use of weapons. The authorities claimed that the reason for the panic demand for fuel was “fake news” about the authorities' plans to raise the price of fuel. The ministry denied the news, but the lines did not diminish, and authorities later said that each car would be able to refuel with only 20 liters of gasoline within 48 hours. Many of the car owners interviewed by RIA Novosti reported that they were queuing for gasoline on average for 3-4 hours.


   Yuri Lyamin's view:


   In Syria, there is a gasoline crisis, the government accuses Egypt of being afraid of American sanctions and not passing Iranian oil tankers through the Suez Canal lately. Although the Egyptians seem to deny this, but information about it leaked from various sources lately and the Americans apparently seriously pressed Egypt services. Moreover, Iranian tankers and shipping companies are on US sanctions lists and any connection with them can be followed by serious US unilateral sanctions (except for temporary exemptions for shipments to China, India, Turkey, etc.), and in general, for assistance in supplying oil and fuel to Syria from anywhere, you can fall under sanctions. We can recall the sanctions against our Global Vision Group and "PromSiryoImport" for facilitating the supply of oil to the Syrian government.
   Rumor has it that Iran is ready to send oil and fuel by land, through Iraq, but for this you need to protect the desert roads in the west of Iraq and east of Syria, and then the IS there continue regular attacks.

   Terrorists in Syria used the new type of missiles to attack the Russian Hmeimim airbase in Lattakia. Several of them were intercepted by missile defense systems at Hmeimim, others did not reach the base.


   The Russian air force launched a powerful wave of air strikes in northern Syria this morning after a jihad attack on Hmeimim air base in Latakia with Grad missiles last night.

   According to a military source, the Russian air force is actively attacking the northern part of Hama and southern Idlib, striking at positions of Hyat Tahrir ash-Sham (HTS) and other jihad groups in the region.

   Among the cities targeted by the Russian air force are Tall Khavash, Kafr Ouid and Al-Mausra.

   This happens after jihadists last night tried to shell the Russian airbase in Hmeymim. According to eyewitnesses from the area, air defense systems inside the base launched several missiles at enemy targets and were able to shoot down most of them.

   The coalition that conducted attack includes: Organization "Guardians of Religion", "Ansar ad-Din Front", "Ansar al-Tawhid" and "Ansar al-Islam". All individual organizations in the group rejected the Sochi agreement.

      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 
              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: 
      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.

      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?
