In Video: Turkish Combat Drones Destroy Syrian Self-Propelled Howitzers

Support SouthFront

On February 29, Turkish armed drones destroyed two self-propelled howitzers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in southern Idlib.

The targeted howitzers were identified as truck-mounted 130 mm M-46s. This type of howitzers is locally manufactured in Syria by the Defense Factories Corporation (DFC).

Several other Turkish drone strikes were reported, especially in the Zawiya Mountain in southern Idlib. Turkish-backed militants are now carrying out a large-scale attack on the SAA’s newly-established positions in the region.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), Turkish drone strikes claimed the lives of 26 Syrian service members in the last few hours.

In the last few days, Turkish drones inflicted catastrophic losses on the SAA and its allies. Dozens of military vehicles were destroyed. On February 28 only, more than 50 pro-government fighters, including ten personnel of Hezbollah, were reportedly killed.

The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Syrian Air Defense Forces (SyAADF), which maintain sufficient capabilities, are yet to take any action against Turkish drones. The reasons remain unknown, as for now.

People will say it’s fake

John

Cause it doesn’t make any sense.

Ayman

It is all Fake
The Truth is, right now SAA is besieging Idlib.
Everything else is Fake!

PZIVJ

Is Turkey using footage from Libya again? HMM

Icarus Tanović

Looks like they do.

Rhodium 10

Drones are very easy to shot down…look at Libya or Yemen!…SAF shot down a MQ reaper over Latakia in 2014…. Turkish are using long range rockets and fire from Turkish border…SAA can smash Turkish outpost…but Putin dont allow because they only want to kill terrorist from above and later SAA will occupy that places…it is the tactic to liberate Syria as we have seen in all areas!

Morons will say it’s fake.

Go read some of you LGBRQI magazines and leave the thinking up to the straight people, you can’t concentrate on 2 different things, that’s why you and all your homosexual mates on SF have been so thoroughly blindsided.

“The Russians will beat up the nasty Turks cause they’re way tougher, just wait and see you Hasbara trolls, you’re all liars and really stupid.”

Like I said, stick to your gay magazines and leave the serious discussions to the people who really care about what happens to Syria, you and your trolling mates obviously don’t, so you can all go F-ck off you simpleton.

Rumours gather weight that Russia has disabled the Syrian radar system and therefore they are blind to Turkish drones and missiles.
Some suggesting that it was a deal to keep Turkey onboard without weakening Erdogan, but Turkey went beyond what was agreed and went after Hezbollah and Syrian troops.
How accurate this is will only be verified in the coming days and weeks

John

This is coming from Almasdar but, what catches my eye is what was stated by the RFM. This does not jive with that, So I don’t think it is real.

https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/turkey-russia-agree-to-reduce-tensions-in-syrias-idlib/

Assad must stay

then russia is fucked up in the head

Assad must stay

this is fucking RETARDED, BLOW UP ALL TORKI DRONES SCREW WHATEVER PUTIN SAYS!!!!!

Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

SAA are getting hit, not Russia. SAA will eventually deal with it. Russia will blow up anything it see’s on the ground. turkey have given al qaeda a surprising amount of hardware

John

SAAF and Russia are hitting Saraqib again. They apparently restarted today.

Icarus Tanović

Great.

GuyQ

Yes and since morning

Vitex

Turkey have given the headchoppers all their obsolescent equipment – 1940s-era howitzers, M-113s. The Turkish army artillery support is more of a headache

GuyQ

People are working behind the scenes. Drones have been allowed for Erdogan to save face. SAA are not been killed but have told to abandone some positions for Turkey to strike.

GuyQ

Same happened during douma chem thing

GuyQ

Just 3days ago, Erdogan was begging for Russia allow their drones to fly over idlib. What has changed? Putin has allowed it to strike empty equipment. Turkey is overdoing it . Time to close it again.

ypovalkanios_katimas

fake or real ,its the easiest thing to do. Even to aim and shoot with rifle is more difficult than this

Art Best

Thanks Putin for realizing the Oded Yinon Plan.

Are these videos real?

– Debunked: Viral video of ‘Turkish drone’ is from video game –

lol

FlorianGeyer

Funnily enough a few years ago now, the Russian MOD showed a video of an ‘attack’ in Syria somewhere ans this was later exposed as beig from a videogame, The MOD was not amused and blamed it on a young contractor employed by the MOD .

EveryoneIsBiased

Yeah it was in “The Putin Interviews” with Oliver Stone.
It was used by MSM as the only critque the could find to discredit Stone and the interviews.. ;)

John

It is interesting that it popped up now. The Pr campaign is in overdrive.

RichardD

Yes, I remember that.

Habib

No Brother it wasnt a game it was USA troops in Iraq shooting targets using an Apache helicopter and the documentary was produced by Oliver stone called the Putin interviews

Luke Hemmming

So the message here is take any Turkish video claiming to be a video of an attack on the SAA with a grain of salt, actually a large piece of rock salt. Thank you Richard for the links.

Lelouch Vi Britannia

cry more TAF is here

Kangaroo_Salesman

Not saying it’s real or fake, but video listed in this SF article definitely isn’t Arma3

Willing Conscience (The Truths

They’re possibly US drones supplied to Turkey over the last few days.

RichardD

It could easily be done with CGG by a skilled tech. It can also be verified or debunked by experts.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

No of course they’re not real, the “Jews” helped the Turks fake some videos for propaganda purposes, the Terrorists are just advancing and taking over SAA positions because the very polite SAA are letting them, there’s nothing to really worry about, it’s all fake news, go back to sleep and don’t worry about a thing.

RichardD

You can’t disprove what I’ve posted so you spam the thread with sarcasm.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

And you continually spam SF forums with nonsense, the alternate reality you and others like you live is totally disturbing, when faced with a reality you can’t face you just simply make up your own version of it to cope.
The smashed bodies of the poor SAA soldiers are proof, the countless vehicles burning on the battlefield are proof, and the videos that Turkey’s providing are proof, but you and the others like you just can’t face the truth, you can only ever be a slave to someone else, you can’t think for yourself.

Why must every bad news be some kind of disinfo, even if the SAA and Hezbollah and Pro-Russian sites like SF also admit it is true?

Because they brainwashed from the time they can walk.Something like N.Koreans,they the best,smartest,richest nation etc…Their brains just cant accept truth unless is spoken from a very tiny group of sources they thought to listen to.

Yeah, it is scary. Psychologically it makes sense, it is human to want to believe what fits ones world view.

But it does not help, and only hurts the cause to overcome the propaganda of MSM, when one just makes anti-MSM-propaganda.
Propaganda is always bad and no solution. But having a nuanced and balanced world view is much much harder and constant work, as opposed to just dream up a black and white worldview..
But it is good to see others who feel the same way.. :)

Willing Conscience (The Truths

No you’re not alone, but not too many of us free thinkers dare to go up against the multitude of bigoted trolls that reside on the SF forums, free thinking isn’t allowed here according to them.
Some of the things people are saying are really scaring the hell out of me, it’s as if they’re totally blind to reality, they’re actually living in their own little worlds with absolutely no idea as to what’s really going on, it’s beyond absurd.
Even though I’m behind Assad 100% I still try to stay impartial, it’s the only way I can understand things better, I put myself in the other person’s shoes [even if I don’t want to], then I play the ball not the man [as hard as it is to do sometimes], that way when I’m watching the match I can call out all the fouls on both teams, and also applaud all the good plays from both teams, unfortunately not too many of the loudest voices here on SF do that do they.
We’re not alone though, it’s just that some of the others couldn’t be bothered putting up with the vicious trolling that comes with posting honest remarks on SF, lucky for me you and a few others do, it’s no fun being the only one pushing sh-t uphill, and that’s what it feels like to me when I’m talking with the trolls.
Cheers

Come on free thinkers come and get your hands dirty, don’t let the trolls put you off, have a say and be damned if you get trolled, we need some sanity to prevail, too few of us are doing all the heavy lifting, a bit of a hand every now and again would be very much appreciated.

Now the war has turned to video games. Enough with this nonsense. I am out of here

The relation Russia-Turkey just smell bullshit.

cactus

the turkish drama has ended …syrian and russian airforces are raining hell on militants in saraqib at the moment with multiple casulaties…in the meantime syrian elite units under direct command of general suhail alhassan are trying to retake sarakib as we speak…with never seen before massive reinforcements heading to aleppo …

Adi

And what happened when you woke up?

Willing Conscience (The Truths

I just checked and there are only one or two Russian airstrikes against Saraqib currently, and most of the SAA are trapped in Idlib by the cut off highway, and there are no massive reinforcements anywhere to the east or south of Aleppo anyway, so unless they can retake the highway, no reinforements will come in massive numbers.

RichardD

Why don’t you post your sources?

Willing Conscience (The Truths

In a few days we’ll know the truth, let’s see if the Russians can liberate Saraqib, let’s see of the reinforcements arrive in Aleppo in a few days time, that’ll be the proof Richard.
My sources are intelligence and observations, something you don’t have or do properly.

Well spotted. It’s like the back story of all those “lone wolf” mass-murderers

Probably because it’s an intel front.

shoot the drones !!

Vitex

Curious, I’ve never seen a weapon like that in Syrian hands.

RichardD

I have. But these videos can be made with computer generated images. They need to be verified or disproven by qualified experts.

Pave Way IV

OK – I vaguely remember someone using a few of these in al Suwaydah. They looked like something ISIS welded together, but they belonged to the SAA. The gun only fires a few degrees either side of forward – right over the truck’s cab – for stability. The cab just needs a shell for protection, so there ya go. 130mm has a long range. Syria can’t have had more than a handful of these in their inventory. Maybe five(?) total used in Suwaydah in 2017.

If this is true, it means that Russia has allowed Turkey to attack Syria army with drones !! If this is true, I just have not words about this.

carpin

I think this is propaganda.

hore ten

Has anyone stop to think for a moment the reason why Syrian air defenses don’t shoot down Turkish drones is because there is so much air traffic from Syrian and Russian Airforce jets and drones it’s hard to tell on radar which drones are friendly because there so frequently used by all sides this far in the war. This is the reason I think most Turkish drones are not shot down.

Ayman

Turkey uses ASELSAN KORAL and REDET Electronic warfare Systems to blind radars and communications.
Why do you think Israel is able to play games with Syrian Air Defence in Damascus (were the best Syrian Systems are located)???

RichardD

“The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Syrian Air Defense Forces (SyAADF), which maintain sufficient capabilities, are yet to take any action against Turkish drones. The reasons remain unknown, as for now.”

If the drone strikes are actually happening as the Turks claim. This is the least plausible explanation. But it also can’t be ruled out.

Lone Ranger

Mire mossad CGI and vids from Lybia…

lovethemapples

It is not easy to shoot a drone down, they are smaller than the planes, and unless with jet engine doesn’t have much heat signature. Not imposible but hard.

Constellation 2023

Fighter jets are next! Wait for it.
