The US State Department and other US government organs believed their own propaganda.  Remember this? The US government is filled with aging Baby Boomers who feel considerable nostalgia about the

Look, I'm a patriotic American, and this sort of video makes me happy.  You see, as a patriotic American, I have long believed that my country makes the best propaganda.  Tremendous.  Huge.  The best,


   A large Turkish military convoy entered the Syrian province of Idlib. It had: M60TM tanks, armored vehicles Vuran, Cobra and Kirpi, as well as armored personnel carriers ACV-15 and M113.

   Turkey declared the Latakia-Aleppo highway a military zone, hoping to stop the Syrian army’s advance.

Was this a recent acquisition or one they've been holding onto? 

Today or yesterday, in Aleppo province, where SAA operation is ongoing.


   A bit of info about operation:


   "Tigers"  operate in the south-east of Idlib, in the Aleppo region, the 4th Division, the Republican Guard and Iranian wards operate. In this case, in Zaitan, the units of the Local Defense Forces acted with the support of armored vehicles of the 4th Division, so this is probably the tank of the latter.
   And the big losses are understandable, reinforcements including the Uyghurs approached the militants in those places, and the Turks replenished their stocks of ATGMs. In addition, in the Aleppo region, it is necessary to break through defense line that was developed there from 2016-17. But on the whole, all this is surmountable and the militants suffer even greater losses, the main question is that the Turks will do further in this situation.

   Less well equipped akbars:




This is the HTS "elite" - Ingimashi and Special Forces from foreigners, including from citizens of the former USSR - Chechens, Uighurs, Uzbeks, Tajiks, etc. They usually are equipping normally at their own expense and undergo training. Fashionable equipment, weapon tuning, etc.

   Jihadists conducted counter-attack in Zahra District of Aleppo (where T-90 and BMP was captured)


That T-90A was captured in Zaytan along with one BMP-1. Previously there were some photos which looked like at least one T-90A may have been operated by one of the Iraqi Shiite militias present in the south Aleppo (already since 2016 battles in that area). It could be their tank. Moreover it looks like they didn't even use the tank in repelling the attack and simply ran away leaving it behind.

   Yeah, you are right about place, i confused them (late night here). Not sure about tank, it could have been SAA-operated tank that was given as reinforcement to NDF/LDF and was sheltered from artillery/mortar attack.

   Turkey will continue operations to protect the population of the Idlib de-escalation zone, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at a briefing in Istanbul before flying to Kiev.

"Ankara is determined to continue steps to ensure Turkey’s national security, as well as the security of the Syrian Idlib population," the president said.
   The President noted that Turkey told Russia that if Moscow cannot stop the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Idlib, then let him not try to put obstacles in the way of the Turkish army.

   Yeah, great. Sultan is again running to cover jihadists.

   Iranian media confirm reports of the death of an Iranian military adviser and commander, Asgar Pashapur, during the fighting with terrorists in Aleppo province. They write that he was personally acquainted with General Suleymani and was one of the first to go on a mission to Syria after the Syrian authorities turned to Iran for help during the outbreak of war.

This turkish intervention at Saraqib is an interesting one. Did they occupy the entire town? I wonder what does this mean to SAA, do they have to just bypass the town and continue advancing along the highway, or they have to stop operations in this area, and begin the liberation of the areas west to Maarat an Numan instead?


Also, the fact that Turkey is so openly supporting terrorism, and at the same time, they are a significant member of NATO raises questions, not only about them, but about the entirety of NATO itself... Just my opinion...

Six Turkish soldiers were confirmed to be killed and seven others wounded by SAA in the village Tarnaba. This village is an active frontline on the western outskirts of Saraqib. 


Some say it was an artillery strike, some others claim it was a commando unit engaged in the fighting.


While this incident has high potential for future escalation it also opens the question whether some of the Turkish ground units are already actively participating in the fighting.

New Anna video. Highly recommended. 


Meanwhile SAA captured Tarnaba (with TSK post) and Nayrab which means they managed to cross the M4 highway west of Saraqib. SAA is now only about 8 km from the Idlib city itself. Also very close to Sarmin and Ariha.

   Apperently those were guys that managed to conduct counter-attack in Zeitan (Uzbeks, Uyghurs, etc, "Islamic party of Turkestan" and "Tauhid val-Jihad"). They failed in Halasa after that.

   Jihadists pushed SAA from 3-4 villages in Aleppo province.


   Interesting to see that HTS brought their best units for this. At least SAA forces that are pushing from south don't encounter all those troops. It feels like attack from Aleppo was supposed to force akbars to spread their forces and try to contain 2 SAA pushes.

      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?
