    SURRENDER or DIE ..MILITANTS SURRENDER to RUSSIA

  • SAA being resupplied by FUKUS!

    • Empire’s Frontiers

      If only they can get the smell out.

  • World_Eye

    Damn Deir Ez Zor Was almost the biggest from weapons caches, after SAA defeat ISIS they found so many weaponry and equipment, I was astonished, there pictures to watch them with days, but in south Syria yet again I am astonished by the amount of weapon gained from Ghouta, to the border of Syria, too damn many though. It turns out all supplied weapons from US, Israhell,UK, France,Saudi Chopheads,Jordan,Bulgaria and many others in the end all that goes to SAA, thanks to all idiots that supplied all these weapons SAA its very thankful now to shave them up in the A*** of Daesh or whoever wants it.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Still pulling weapons out of Deir ezzoir no stop right now every second day large stockpiles.

      • World_Eye

        Yes I know that.

    • Bill Wilson

      Oh bullshit. Most of that haul came from captured SAA bases and units that abandoned equipment when retreating.

      • World_Eye

        Yea right all the weapons were government weapons right, as the American supplied TOWs and million other weaponry sized, UKs, French, are you fucking blind man, scroll back or type the word Weapons Seized in the search bar in SF page and see how much and what exactly is been seized. LOL

  • Jesus

    Russia wins in direct combat, and in negotiations. Their rod of iron is heavy and inflicts a lot of pain.

  • Smaug

    Those weapons look like they’ve been sitting right where they are for years. Not surprising given the men who captured them lack the expertise and stuff to keep them in repair and in use.

    • David Parker

      Men who captured them or the men to whom they were given?
      I agree parts are very expensive and that stuff is probably a bitch to work on without a proper maintenance facility with overhead cranes and pits.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Most are just distressed to look old but still in some countries arsenals and can never get that new vehicle smell and look out of them interiors are mint!

    Th OT-64 is a unibody design that could be modified with a lifted suspension, life support systems and converted to electric drive for off planet work.

    The surface of Mars:

      And this has what to do with terrorists turning over equipment they couldn’t maintain?

      • RichardD

        It has to do with upgrading the OT-64s shown in the article for other uses.

        • David Parker

          That equipment is heavy steel and you propose modifying it and shipping it to Mars? Not my tax dollars! Only ultralight equipment is feasible for that trip.
          Actually sending anything to that dead planet is a waste of money. I am all for research, but that place is dead and will not support life. It is too far from the sun for starters.
          The whole Mars orgasm is the hope some evidence of living things can be found there. That would be a big boost for the “Theory of Evolution” which is foundering badly these days as it becomes more evident a living self-reproducing cell cannot be synthesized.

          • RichardD

            With rockets it would be a slow go, with over unity electricity production and mass cancellation anti gravity technology Mars can easily be developed into a livable environment. A 120 foot diameter disc craft with one floor allocated to freight can move 500 tons at 500 pounds a cubic yard per trip. And make the round trip in a small fraction of the time that a rocket would take. One load would be enough to put self sustaining habitation on Mars.

          • David Parker

            Yup, I had forgotten all about “over unity electricity production” and “mass cancellation anti gravity” and “self-sustaining habitation” working on a dead planet.

            The aliens used to do that right here, they could distil moonshine and ship it past the BATF. I plan to build one of those self-sustaining habitations back there in the woods someday soon as I get my over unity electricity producer working again. We used a mass cancellation anti gravity unit to haul heavy stuff out of the woods. I think we called it a D-8 Cat. Those mass-cancellers were good for building roads too.

            Mars, great realty opportunity, first ones there could probably
            homestead the whole planet and subdivide. But that’s a lot of miles on the mass cancellation anti gravity unit: You wouldn’t get much of a trade in after the second trip. Yep, tanks on Mars. That would help with pesky claim jumpers. I wonder how long the undercarriage would last in Martian sand? Parts are going to be a bear, I can see it right now. You can’t just walk into an Ace hardware store and pick up parts for a mass cancelling anti gravity unit or an over unity electricity producer. Window and door seals on the self-sustaining habitation probably aren’t a common stock item at Ace either.

            Those are nice pictures of your place. Looks a little dry to me, how do you get the potatoes to grow? How long have you been living there?

          • RichardD

            An 8 hour flight carrying 500 tons of freight is a day trip. Mars has ice caps like Earth. So water is available and the atmosphere is CO2 which converts to O2. It reaches 68 F at the equator. Over unity electrical units aren’t currently open source and neither are field drives. But that doesn’t mean that they’re not being built and used non open source. It makes mining as economically viable there as it is here.

          • David Parker

            Yeah thanks. I should dust off Heinlein and Asimov and Clarke. Somewhere I missed a connection.

            Eight hours to Mars? Not bad but kind of a bear with no rest stops I imagine. Did you pee in a jar and hold the number two until you got to the sustainable habitation?

            How long have you been back? Are you back to pick up barbed wire and fence posts? Last I checked, there aren’t any trees there, not even for fence posts. Electric fences are the way to go, but as dry as the ground is there, you are going to have to string two wires for sure to keep the stock in.

            How long before your next trip?

          • RichardD

            If your world view doesn’t included government and private sector sequestered technology, and you’re happy with looking at life with blinders on, it’s your life. Judging from your perverse obsession with bodily functions, you’ve got some maturity and rationality issues to deal with.

          • David Parker

            Are you saying your shit doesn’t stink or that you don’t shit?

            It’s a problem for us earthlings on long trips. Our astronauts have been wearing diapers for decades because the facilities aren’t so good. They also claim eating the dehydrated food messed up their digestive system. Also, don’t forget, us earthlings have to breathe and the air better have some humidity or it’s real bad for our sinuses and lungs. Of course, I will take a west coast level of humidity over a Dallas, Texas or Memphis, Tennessee level of humidity.

            How do those rational issues taste? Are those just issue C-rations?
            Being a carbon-based organic creature makes it tough to travel in space.

          • RichardD

            You’re an obnoxious head case.

          • David Parker

            How do you figure?
            I am only speaking from experience. I have been on lots of long flights across a lot of water looking for people who broadcast an SOS. After about the first eight hours, a relief tube becomes a necessity. On really long patrols, you discover there is a reason for that head aft.
            Unlike you, I can’t get my mass cancellation anti gravity unit to start, so I haven’t been to Mars. Maybe its flooded and the plugs are wet, I don’t know but it won’t fire. Ever had that problem with yours?
            Anyway, I think you misjudge me. My wife says I am too social, but never obnoxious, I am a happy drunk.
            By the way, what is a “head case”? Does yours come off or something so you need a box to store it? How do you see to open the thing? I don’t see how that works at all, it’s weird, like the “Return to Oz”. Does removing your head count as a bodily function?

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            We have Aluminum alloy products like posts and concertina wire with 16 gauge fencing wire , we have it all as we find the sand is not at all different from here.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            That’s Ok, I am opening up a “Space Hardware” store you know my motto “Home of the Alien Friendly Hardware store”!

          • David Parker

            I been needin’ some of that.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Maybe Elon Musk will do it with your tax dollars he is a Chupacabra you know that they cast funny spells or maybe that’s Mole-rats?!

  • S Melanson

    Looking at the condition of the equipment, I would hand it right back.

    • Leon Auguste

      True lol
