Syrian conflict.

Recommended Posts




   Today, after midnight, the air defense systems of the Syrian Arab Army repelled Israel’s missile strikes against military targets in Homs and the outskirts of Damascus.
   A military source told the SANA agency: “Our air defenses reacted to enemy missiles launched by Israeli military aircraft from Lebanon’s airspace at a number of military positions in Homs and in the vicinity of Damascus.”
   As the correspondent of the agency SANA, the blast wave caused by the explosions in the vicinity of Damascus, damaged several houses in the village of Sahna, as a result of which several people were injured by fragments of glass.
   Later, the reporter clarified that as a result of the aggression, 4 civilians, including an infant, died and another 21 people were injured.





   Probably one of S-200 AA missiles managed to fall on Cyprus island ( about 260 km from Masyaf to Tashkent region north of Nicosia) according to Lyamin.

   Northen Hama - clashes continue. Militants managed to push SAA from one of hills in Hamamiyat area. Jihadists were well equipped, many uzbeks. Plenty of Turkish LAW copies were carried by those shitheads.



   Rest of pics. Note thermal imager and suppressors.











   SAA and NDF in that area:

   Apparently during this attack village was taken by jihadists, SAA/NDF are counter-attacking. HTS and few other groups are participating in this fight.


   Vehicle that jihadists lost during attack - T-55 with removed turret and added dozer blade.

   ANNA news about recent fighting in Northen Hama. As always, very interesting footage, first part - UAV shows airstrikes.

   So for almost month there was little fighting on frontlines with Idlibostanians, but few days ago HTS&Co tried to attack SAA. On 10th of July - attack in Lattakia and on 11th - in Northen Hama. Hamamiyat was taken by HTS with second assault. Village itself wasn't important, but hill nearby that SAA controlled was more interesting for tactical reasons. 

   Tiger forces were tasked with re-tajing village and looks like HTS pulled out of it, but had mortar teams and spotters ready for SAA. Operation started and HTS mortar fire also was launched. When SAA moved in (2 tanks and IFV got inside of that village) mobile teams of jihadists were moving to avoid direct hard fireifght (it seems). UAVs were used to junt them down. To avoid more casualties (1 IFV was hit just in front of ANNA news) commanders decided to wait for darker time of the day.

   During night time Tiger forces used modernized T-72s and T-90 to gain edge over HTS, thanks to their thermal imagers + UAV recon.

   Next day SAA took village and areas around it, a lot of dead jihadists were from Uzbekistan and Tadjikistan.

   This attack on Hamamiyam was 5th one and only one that managed to gain anything before getting hit back and loosing everything they managed to gain in matter of ~1 day. HTS and affiliated groups lost 5 tanks and about 100 militants.

   On the night of July 20/21, the militants pulled together large forces to the front near the village of Kessabiya. The terrorists planned to use for the attack 2 tanks, 3 infantry fighting vehicles and DIY armored vehicles. The assault units were supposed to be supported by several MLRS... The attempted offensive ended in complete failure for the militants. During the day they lost a tank, several armored vehicles, MLRS and up to a hundred people killed.


   More of UAV footage, this time from failed operation by HTS and their dogs.

      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?
