Suheil al-Hassan, Commander of Syria’s Tiger Forces, is one of the most prominent commanders of the Syrian military, who became widely known during the conflict. Since the very start of the Russian military campaign in the country in 2015, the Tiger Forces alongside with the 5th Assault Corps have been one of the main pro-government factions receiving support and assistance from the Russians. Multiple photos show that service members of the Russian Special Operations Forces protect the al-Hassan during his visits to frontlines.

His “angels.” May God preserve Al-Hassan.

Looks like Commander Hassan is a high value target for some groups inside Syrian government…

katakanBR

is that an AK-12?

Prince Teutonic

It is known that AK-12’s are used mostly by spec-ops. So yes, I think so. You can also see on the second picture soldier with drum magazine…
But then again it could be AK-15 which is just AK-12 with 7.62 cal…

You are right spec-ops use only AK-12’s so drum magazine AK is AK-12.
No ordinary soldier ever goes in generals personal protection only Russian spec-ops guys are protecting him.

Kay

I personally doubt it is, it’s probably a modded AK-104 with a drum, the AK-12 is still pretty new, as far as I’m aware none of the units in Syria have it yet.

jako

OK if you say so.
Yet I don’t see why wouldn’t they have them already?
If it is just for some units of spec ops it shouldn’t be such big number to produce after all.
AK-12 is already old news, so what the heck they are waiting for…?!

Хасен Жасем Халфет

Actually no.
Spec Ops in Russia do not yet use AK-12 or 15. the First batch of those was only delivered in december … Operators do not use weapons they did not train with for long times.
plus All AK-12/15 have telescopic butt stocks (in the pic there are only normal Polymer stocks)
Those are most likely customised (picattiny+optics / muzzle devices ) AK-100 series specifically AK-103 (cahmbered in the 7.62X39 which is the favorite for Russian Operators and can be distinguished by the higher curvature of the box mag). if not AK-103 than it is an AK-203 also chambered in the 7.62X39 but these are really really rare.

Prince Teutonic

Is that blood on the third picture?

al quaida

Looks like it. And fresh. Someone was recently toasted on that spot.
