Syrian conflict.

Recommended Posts

   Two large pro-Turkish militant groups in the Syrian province of Idlib joined together: the National Liberation Front and the Free Syrian Army created a single military structure, which was called the Syrian National Army (SNA).

   The new structure is subordinate to the opposition "interim government" in Gaziantep (Turkey). At the head of the SNA is the “Minister of Defense,” Salim Idris.

   The militants of the Syrian National Army alliance have declared their readiness to send up to 14,000 fighters to the east of Syria to support the operation of the Turkish Army Source of Peace against Kurdish forces.

   In their appeal, the militants emphasize that they will join the military operations of Turkey in order to restore peace in eastern Syria and create a safe zone for the return of refugees.

So it begun. Turkish air and artillery strikes have been hitting YPG positions mostly around Ras al Ayn, Tall Abyad but also on other places (some reports about bombing Mansoura dam near Raqqa as well). Two probing attacks of TFSA were reported to be repelled by SDF (one from the Turkish side of the border, one west of Manbij). So far no ground advance started, likely tomorrow morning. 

 

Also al-Jolani is reportedly still alive and voiced his support to the Turkish operation (I don't understand it myself)...

   Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the start of the operation of the Turkish Armed Forces in Syria.

   According to Anadolu, Turkey’s operation in the areas of Syria east of the Euphrates River was called the “Spring of Peace”.
   Earlier, the Syrian Foreign Ministry condemned the plans of the Turkish side to begin a military operation against Kurdish organizations in the north-east of the SAR. Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani called on Ankara to reconsider its position on the start of the operation.
   As stated on October 9 in the Kremlin, on the initiative of the Turkish side, a telephone conversation took place between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Erdogan. It was pointed out that in the light of Turkey’s plans for the operation, Putin called on the Turkish partners to "carefully weigh the situation so as not to damage the overall efforts to resolve the Syrian crisis."
   At the same time, both leaders noted the importance of ensuring the unity and territorial integrity of Syria, respect for its sovereignty.

 

 

Quote

   Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mikdad noted that the Syrian authorities had long been telling the Kurds rushing under the star-striped guardianship: American support will sooner or later disappear. "Everyone who was not honest with his homeland and sold it for nothing will see that he will be thrown out of the bounds of history. We have warned many times about such conspiracies against the homeland and the Syrian people, they said that those who rush into the arms of foreigners will be thrown out they are far away and with disgust. It happened. The Kurds lost everything ... In the end, the homeland welcomes all its children. We want to solve all Syrian problems in a positive and non-violent way, but in such a way as to preserve the entire territory of Syria, " Mikdad.

 

   Well, many representatives of the Kurdish elite expectedly change their shoes midair and turn their eyes to Vladimir Putin and Bashar al-Assad. “Russia and Damascus should take responsibility for protecting our region from the Turkish attack, because it will also jeopardize Russia's interests. We hope that Russia will be able to play its role in resuming dialogue to resolve the Syrian crisis, and we are ready with this. The goal is to resume dialogue with Damascus. We have always recognized and believed in the importance of a serious dialogue with Damascus, and we will always be open to achieving this goal. Russia could play a role in this, and we believe that it will be extremely importantsignificance, "Kurdish activist Badran Jakurd told RIA Novosti.

 

   Russia recognizes that the Kurds made a significant contribution to the fight against the “Islamic State" *. But the Kurdish leaders themselves made a further choice, and our paths diverged. The only chance for the Syrian Kurds is to surrender weapons to Syrian troops as soon as possible, repent to Damascus and abandon attacks on the integrity of Syria.

According to Turkish sources Hamza Division of FSA is leading the fight in Tell Abyad. This group was supported by USA for large part of the war (and it's not without curiosity that it has hundreds of Kurds in its ranks).

   Probably they keep low in remote villages and come together when things are heating up.

It was in fact Liwa al Quds. Anyway the IS claim of 17 dead can be very well overblown.

   Putin doubts that Ankara can control the outcome of ISIS militants from northern Syria. Special services of the CIS countries must stop the threat of the spread of terrorists from Syria
       
   Ashgabat. October 11. INTERFAX - Russian President Vladimir Putin is not sure that Turkey will be able to take control of the situation if ISIS captive militants flee to other territories.

   "In the north of Syria, there are areas where ISIS militants are concentrated. They are still guarded by Kurdish military units. Now the Turkish army enters there, the Kurds are dropping these camps. They just can scatter," Putin said at a CIS summit in Ashgabat on Friday. "I'm not sure if the Turkish army can quickly take control of it," he added.
   The President emphasized that in these zones, according to the General Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of Russia, there are hundreds of militants and "thousands, if we talk about the CIS countries." "We just need to understand this, know and mobilize the resources of our special services to stop this really emerging new threat," the president emphasized. He noted that many militants seek to create new strongholds in other regions.
   "Having been defeated in Syria, many militants are redeployed to other regions, where they seek to create new strongholds - in the Balkans, in Southeast Asia and, of course, unfortunately for us, on the southern borders of the Commonwealth," - said in a transcript of Putin’s speech on CIS summit published on the Kremlin website.
   Putin stressed that following the summit, a program of cooperation in the fight against terrorism and other violent manifestations of extremism for the next three years will be approved. "We believe that this is very important and this should mobilize our joint efforts to combat this threat," Putin said.

      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.

      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?
