    It looks to be the Doppler radar alert component of the Russian Arena ATGM system. In this case, it will just blare out a loud alarm when the Doppler radar detects a missile, RPG, what have you. The crews then have a few seconds to get the hell off the vehicle and take cover. No need for a $100k jamming system for a $10k truck.

    Equipment/ materiel is easy to get, much easier than finding more Alawite or Shiite fighters.

    Sean_in_Nyc, Most of the fighters in SAA are Sunni, so what is your problem with Shia?
