Great shots of an air grouping that has won the war, and defied the US led international coalition; together with their air defenses and EW forces, Russia has a very solid foot in Syria and is in control of the ME chessboard.

christianblood

Well-said!

RichardD

I wouldn’t say that they’re in control of the chessboard, but they’ve clearly made enough inroads that Jew world order hegemony has been ended there. At the rate that the Syrian government coalition is going, control of the ME chess board is foreseeable.

Jesus

I see them in control given their military and political victories, the Jews can gnash their teeth because Syria is getting the S300 and Tor M2 upgrading their air defenses significantly.
Militarily they are toying with US forces in the ME, considering the latest US UK cruise missile fiasco where they did not fire one missile, instead using a variety of cobbled up defenses to thwart the attack.
They are in control of the ME chessboard because their conventional weaponry outclasses the NATO arsenal, Russia being able to produce great results in conjunction with her allies using minimal forces.

RichardD

Jew world order forces are still all over the ME causing a lot of trouble in a lot of places. Russian control is limited primarily to Syria. So on a regional geographical basis, the ME chessboard is still dominated by the US and it’s allies. But the Russians are making a lot of inroads with a lot of the nations who would like to get out from under the Jew thumb. But can’t for fear of having done to them what was and is being done to a number of players, including in places like Syria, Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Iraq and elsewhere.

The Russians have technological superiority in some weapons systems like anti aircraft systems and hypersonic missiles. But they’re outnumbered by US bases and equipment throughout the middle east. Where the Russians have little or no military presence. The Russians simply don’t have the resources on their own to counter the US outside of Syria. With regional allies like Iran and Egypt that’s changing. But it will take time for alliances to be built to the point where US influence shifts from a majority to a minority position.

Feudalism Victory

Quite so with the exception of the rather odious “jew world order” bit. The new world order types come in all stripes.

RichardD

The Jews have collaborators, at it’s core the NWO is a Talmud rabbinical ideology with it’s primary facilitators and architects being Zionist Jews trying to fulfill their supremacist master plan of global domination and enslavement. That’s why it’s transnational and adaptive to the local conditions. And geographically shifts operations over the centuries and millennium as the Jews get forcibly relocated and populations of them decimated for their crimes and antisocial behavior.

Jonathan Murray

Jews are the victims of the world order. They created a small statelet in the Levant which is vulnerable to destruction and hang on to it knowing at some point in the future it will be destroyed and they will again have to move. If you want to understand the word read about Imperialism – not some racist story that the CIA has told you via its ‘conspiracy theory’ machine.

RichardD

Racial supremacist Jews are the creators of the NWO, and yes, they victimise other Jews to advance their evil agenda, like their participation in the holocaust:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_Jewish_population_comparisons

https://dissidentvoice.org/2012/07/the-zionist-nazi-collaboration/

This type of bad behavior is why they’re the most persecuted, expelled and genocided group of miscreants in history. It’s been going on for thousands of years, long before the CIA ever existed:

“Jewish population centers have shifted tremendously over time, due to the constant streams of Jewish refugees created by expulsions, persecution, and officially sanctioned killing of Jews in various places at various times. In addition, assimilation and forced conversions have also impacted Jewish population sizes throughout Jewish history.”

Their evil Talmud rabbinical ideology is Satanic:

https://thesaker.is/a-crash-course-on-the-true-causes-of-antisemitism/

Jesus

The Jew world order rests on the petrodollar, an order that is currently being challenged in an effective manner by SCO led by China and Russia.
As the importance of the petrodollar diminishes, so will the power of US worldwide, regardless of how many bases they have in the world.
Their trade wars with China will exacerbate their inflation rate, needing increased rate hikes by the Fed. Servicing current 21-22 trillion dollar debt at higher interest rates (say 4-5%) would require 1 trillion of their budget to service the debt, in conjunction with diminished petrodollar needs worldwide. That is a black swan.

In regards to US presence in the ME, they have to deal with Iran, partially Iraq, Syria, Hezbollah and Turkey. Land based US air power is neutralized by strong air defenses and capable aircraft, while any attempt to project any air power from their carriers in the Mediterranean of the Persian gulf would be foolish, since land and air based anti ship missiles out range the aircraft deployed on US carriers. Lack of reliable offensive weapons makes any attempted attack by US to be decisive failure.
Russia can effectively seal the Meditarnean sea and Persian gulf from any US carrier task forces.
US MIC has not produced any reliable weapon system for the last 2-3 decades, in spite of hundreds of billions spent on a large array of presumed weapons.
The US MIC is a bloated mononopolistic institution without any creativity and competition unable to make any project work effectively. They are not going to be able to develop hypersonic weapons or stay close to the Russian’s pace of new weapon generation development.
Within 10 years as the current arsenal of weapons (aircraft, missiles, air defense systems) and the MIC not being able to supply a steady flow of new and effective weapons, the US military will be very marginal at best. This is another black swan.

The days of US being a bully against Iraq, Lybia, Afghanistan or other helpless countries are over, Russia and China will make sure that US influence and power is slowly and surely reduced, and eventually rendered meaningless.

RichardD

It’s a question of timing, alliances and scale of force structure. The Russians aren’t going to use their technical advantages in some weapons systems to challenge the US at this time outside of Syria, or possibly Iran. Few would disagree that the US and it’s allies have free reign at this time over the vast majority of the ME. Iran and Syria being the only major exceptions.

If your premise was true, the US wouldn’t be supplying their Syrian bases through Jordan and Iraq. The US has nukes to, and a lot of them, that keep the Russians in check. The Russians aren’t going to risk a theater nuclear conflict on their border that could easily escalate to try to curb US dominance in the ME.

I agree with a lot of your assessment about the structural problems that the US has, and the potential consequences of them worsening to the point where they weaken US dominance in the ME to the point where the balance of power shifts from the US to the Eurasian block led by Russia and China. But right now the US operates with few constraints through out most of the ME in a manner that the Russians are unwilling or unable to counter. That may change if the US continues to weaken from empire overreach and mismanagement. But that’s not where we’re at at this time.

The US and it’s allies are in control of the ME chessboard, which is being challenged by Russia and it’s allies who have the upper hand in Syria and Iran, but no place else. If Russia controlled the Mediterranean, Red Sea and Persian Gulf as you claim. The NATO Jew 3 would have never launched an attack on Syria from there without any military counter strike to their launch platforms. You’re talking hypotheticals, I’m talking actualities.

Jesus

Russian posture although defensive and relegated to Syria, influences the balance of power in the ME, regardless of how many bases US has in the area.
US has bases in Iraq, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia…..etc, they are all within the range of Kaliber and Kh101 long range cruise missiles.
Those bases can deploy F15, 16 and 22 fighter bombers, without much success against the Russians, considering their A2AD defenses in Syria, plus the fact that they could deploy 100 fighter bombers in Latakia, and T22, 95 and 160 bombers from Russia.

ME is a lot closer to the russian border than continental US, subsequently it is a lot easier for the Russians to mobilize forces in Iran, Iraq, Syria and Egypt to strengthen their positions.

US presence in Iraq is perilous in case of a major conflict, PMU and other Shiite militias would gladly distribute some retribution.
Eastern Mediterranean is a Russian lake considering Egypt allows Russian aircraft to use its airfields against terrorists, this privilege can allow Russian aircraft to surveil the Red Sea and interdict any traffic they might find threatening.

The bottom line is, US has many bases in ME, however, their location and proximity for logistics and supply lines make them vulnerable to Russian missiles and pro Iranian forces. US and their allies can try to attack Russian positions in Syria, only to be unsuccessful , due to their limited missiles capabilities and deadly russian air defenses.
With the US Air Force neutralized, US does not have any meaningful air defenses against an onslaught of missiles directed at them.

At the present Russia can deploy 100 fighter bombers of various kinds in Latakia, and has an A2AD umbrella consisting of at least 4-600 medium long range and short range missiles, besides the Pantsir point defenses and Syrian and Iranian weaponry. If Russia was to establish an A2AD bubble in Deir Ezzor, or T4, US positions in Iraq and Syria would be severely compromised.

Jesus

US, UK, and France attack Russian positions in Syria in several waves, using standoff weapons and aircraft challenging directly the Russian air defenses, Russia responds with S300, 350 and 400 defenses, shooting down allied aircraft, and as per Gerasimov warning, russian bombers, the Caspian fleet and Mig 31’s armed with Kinzhals, Kaliber and Kh101 unleash a counterattack against allied naval assets and US air bases throughout ME.

US bases and airfields throughout Middle East without proper air defenses would take heavy losses and be out of commission.

RichardD

And the US has a lot of NATO forces in Europe to counter Russian forces in the ME that can be drawn on. You’re war gaming out a WW3 scenario. Short of that, which is where we’re at today. The US has the dominant position in the ME, because the Russians aren’t going to escalate to a direct conflict to stop US conventional activity outside of Syria. Not in Libya, Iraq, Jordan, Yemen, etc..

Governments like Egypt have a foot in both camps. None of the governments in the ME want to be the battle ground for a Russian/US conflict. It hasn’t even happened in Syria, it’s highly unlikely to happen anyplace else short of an escalation in Syria. Which leaves the US with the upper hand in the current environment in everyplace except Syria and Iran.

All of the factors that you’ve listed could result in a shift from the US having the dominant position to Russia having it, depending on how things play out. But that’s all on the if come. Once the Syria war is over. And if it concludes with the Syrian government intact, with the Syrian government coalition having defeated the regime change attempt. Which hasn’t happened yet. Though things are moving in that direction.

At that point the regional governments are going to start looking at shifting their alliances away from the US orbit to the Russia/China orbit. That process has been underway for sometime now. And if Russia wins the Syria war, it will continue. Right now the US operates with impunity everyplace except for Syria and Iran. Though Turkey is increasingly transitioning to decreasing it’s involvement and cooperation with the US, and increasing it with Russia. As are others, including Egypt.

I can see the US losing it’s dominant position in the ME if current trends continue, but it hasn’t happened yet.

Rob

Russia and Syria should protect their aviation from Israel, US, UK and France.

Jesus

Maybe Israel, US, UK and France should protect their aviation from the SAM defenses deployed in Syria, or the Kaliber missiles fired from the Mediterranean or Caspian Sea.

amen

PZIVJ

Would still be nice to see some hard shelters built.
Or maybe that is in process?
At least the barriers will provide a little protection.

FlorianGeyer

To some extent Hard Shelters are easily destroyed these days and the portable defences are capable of deflecting shelling or drone attacks from doing too much damage.

PZIVJ

I was thinking about protection from shrapnel explosion.
Not about Tomahawk, because it seems to rarely make it to target. :D

FlorianGeyer

That’s true. It was proven by the Maginot Line, The Atlantic Wall, the V1 bunkers and many more that if there is a fixed obstacle the military men will find a way to overcome it.

In my opinion flexibility is the key with a plethora of deep and basic underground shelters and kilometres long tunnels as we see in Douma.

Spread all the assets around so that if a shelter is destroyed there is still the necessary equipment , ammunition and fuel elsewhere. Its harder work but it is necessary in my humble opinion :)

During the Falklands war in 1981 , the Brits put all the tents and chinooks etc on one ship called the Atlantic Conveyer. It was sunk by a French made missile and the loss of the material on that ship vary nearly caused the Brits to be defeated by Argentina.

PZIVJ

With the new aircraft apron the Russians built at airbase, they do have more room to move planes around. Maybe make 100+ revetments and just keep moving things around is a viable strategy. And have some of them as decoys :)

FlorianGeyer

I agree. It keeps garrison troops on their toes as well.

RichardD

It’s probably a cost issue. Yes revetments would be nice, but for what they cost, a decision has been made to spend the money on other things that will provide a greater return on investment in terms of winning the war. The Douma tunnels were built with slave labor.

FlorianGeyer

That’s true I agree. However with area denial weapons that become ever more potent it is important to preserve the fighting ability of troops and equipment. The great advances in Infantry weapons today will be a challenge for any nations armies I think.

RichardD

Particularly when infantry weapons are integrated into theater sat net capabilities to considerably extend their range and accuracy. Such as the SA-25:

“The 9K333 Verba (Russian: Верба, “Willow”) is a Russian fourth-generation[1] man-portable infrared homing surface-to-air missile (SAM) MANPADS. “9K333″ is the Russian GRAU designation of the system. Its NATO reporting name is SA-25.”

– 9K333 Verba –

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9K333_Verba

These types of infantry weapons can be further developed for surface to surface use. Giving infantry personnel a radius far exceeding a rifle. They probably have tactical nuclear applications as well. With the destructive equivalence of 10 to 20 tons of tnt. That’s a lot of firepower for infantry soldiers:

“The M-28 or M-29 Davy Crockett Weapon System was the tactical nuclear recoilless gun (smoothbore) for firing the M-388 nuclear projectile that was deployed by the United States during the Cold War. It was one of the smallest nuclear weapon systems ever built, with a yield between 10 and 20 tons TNT equivalent (40–80 Gigajoules). It is named after American folk hero, soldier, and congressman Davy Crockett.”

– Davy Crockett (nuclear device) –

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davy_Crockett_(nuclear_device)

FlorianGeyer

That’s fascinating Richard. Is it about the same power as a ‘suitcase nuke ‘ ?

RichardD

Yes, there was a suitcase nuke using a lot of the same components with the same yields. Though there are considerably more powerful suitcase/backpack nukes as well. Keep in mind that this is late 1950s production and technology from 60 years ago. With computers and miniaturization. A man portable tactical nuke similar to an rpg/manpad has been on the drawing boards for a long time, and is probably in limited production in sequestered programs. Except with a range and accuracy far exceeding an rpg.

RichardD

Davy Crockett was a recoilless gun on a tripod for firing the M-388 atomic round

Barba_Papa

Without hardened aircraft shelters they would be sitting ducks. Of course the airbase used to be a civilian airport so no surprise that there aren’t any. And you’d think that by now the Russians would at least begin the constructions of some.

Of course any attacker from the air would have to run the gauntlet of the S-400, S-300, Tor and Pantsir systems defending the base. Not to mention overcome Russian EW jamming.

velociraptor

they hav so also at home. they are laizy to guild hangars. or maybe they dont know the technology :) in chetnobyl also western firms built the hangar ;)

Approved

and the mighty israel air force also operates with no aircraft shelter because for so long they been operating with impunity , as with other western air forces. in a real confrontation their airfield will get bombarded and they will lose irreplacable men and materiel..

as for syrian / russian A2/AD , you seem to misunderstand the concept of the russian air defense procedures. They operate on multiple layers and they are linked with russian AD network , thus giving a massive bird’s eyeview to ALL launchers in the AD node. The local system will get fast info of incoming and launch timing while the central controller assign which node are to fire and maximize coverage.

theres no “gauntlet” ala WW2 air defense

But if I only could decide such thing….I would definitely choose to nuke those ISIS rats there in desert just for a pleasure…..to see them dying.

Sick and tired of Americans, Israel and their head chopping animals…now even frogs are arriving….will this war ever stop..

RichardD

It looks to me like the Syrian government coalition is gearing up to expand the no fly zone over the 70% of Syria west of the river to the remaining 30% of Syria at the Jordan border crossing and east of the river. And to advance underneath it to clear the remaining 30% of Syria occupied by the regime change terrorists, secessionists and their Jew world order supporters.

Dr. Pro Liv

I’ve seen new Pantsirs arriving in Syria
It seams that they are starting to beef up AA defenses seriously.

It would be nice move that Russians with giveaway S-300 and new Pantsirs make such strong Syrian air defenses that Syria would really not need Russians any longer to intervene in any situations….so that Syria can hit Israeli jets for any Israeli bullshit they make in Syria.

Total non fly zone over ALL Syria is the only key to freedom of that country everything else is just bullshit… and baby steps, that lead nowhere….

RichardD

Syria’s upgraded legacy system S-200s have sufficient range and knock down capability that they can cover all of Syria’s neighbors and out into the sea quite a distance. And they have 320 of those launchers. S-300s would improve the knock down percentage, but not the Syrian government’s air defense range. They also have a sufficient density of modern Pantsir and Buk systems to make venturing into Syrian airspace a risky proposition for any aggressor. Syria also has 20 Mig 29s, which are a very capable plane for operations outside of Syrian airspace.

The Syrians don’t want to expand the war in that manner. They’re more interested in winning the ground war. Most of the Jew’s attacks are from outside of Syrian airspace at close range with limited interdiction time. Which is why they have a higher percentage of completion than missiles shot from a stand off distance. And they’re basically nuisance attacks with little effect on the ground war. That are primarily probing actions to test Syria’s air defense capabilities.

Syria will never be self sufficient against the Jew 4 of Israel and the NATO Jew 3 of the US, France, and the UK. The imbalance of forces is to great. That’s why the Russian base is important. Even with s-300s, Syria’s air defense, even with integration into Russian sat net systems, can be overwhelmed by the Jew 4.

An attack larger than the one just repelled would require shutting down the launchers and inflecting enough additional damage on an as needed basis to deter a continuation of the attack. Syria doesn’t have the offensive capability to do that. But when you add in the Russians, Iranians and Hezbollah, the balance of power shifts away from the Jew 4 to the Syrian government coalition in such a manner that the Jew 4 don’t want to take the type of damage that the Syrian government coalition can dish out.

Dr. Pro Liv

I like your explanation and I even learned some things.
I like very much when I learn something
Usually people are boring when they start explaining but you were not boring.
Because you know exactly what were you talking about.
It was obvious.
Richard you didn’t learn all those things by reading news.
You sound like military professional to me.
Whoever you are all was well spoken and right on the spot.

Do you see any escalation of this war and if not….Can Syria be saved as country concerning attitudes of Israel, U.S. and Turkey
not to mention others ?….

RichardD

Yes, I see an escalation. The next phase of pushing the US and company out of Syria is going to result in more hysteria on the part of the Jew 4 and tag alongs and coerced “partners”. With more theatrics and further embarrassing themselves and their nations. It will be a combination of conventional warfare with the terrorists being cleared from the borders and secessionists facing military defeat and or capitulation to the Syrian government similar to what happened in Afrin.

Once the mopping up operations on the borders in western Syria are further along. It will free up men and material for use on the eastern front. Including establishing an upgraded air defense hub in the Dier Ezzor area for extending the no fly zone to the Turkish and Iraqi borders. Which is probably already underway and just isn’t receiving any press coverage. There’s also a possibility that the Turks will allow Russian air defense equipment into south eastern Turkey to augment air defense capabilities into northern Syria.

The Kurds won’t have the man power or equipment to counter it. And as their air cover is weakened and withdrawn, they’l have to fall back or capitulate to allowing the restoration of Syrian government administration in currently SDF controlled areas.

I’m not privy to the plans that the Syrian government coalition has for the reclamation of the area east of the river. But the demographics suggest that friction between the non Kurd majority in the 90% of the area east of the river and the Kurds and their Jew world order backers is going to be a significant factor.

So irregular warfare involving Syrian government coalition backed indigenous fighters east of the river opposed to occupation, and the secessionist Kurds and foreign occupiers will probably increase in a binary clearing operation. With government forces moving the front lines east and north. And resistance fighters and special operations and intel units working behind enemy lines to wrest control from the Kurds and their backers on a local basis setting up liberated areas and no go zones for the occupiers and secessionists.

So to answer your second question. Yes, Syria can and probably is going to survive intact. And the preceding summary is how I see it happening. As far as my background, I have special operations and ET contact experience involving sequestered and off planet weapons and other technology. Which has an effect on terrestrial politics and security. And helps to provide insight into what is happening and why it’s happening.

So…., the SU-25’s and attack helicopters have been withdrawn?

True?
All of them?

This is just Khmeimin airfield. There are others.

Dr. Pro Liv

I know “there are others”
Are the all SU-25 and choppers back home?
Now when I talk about it it gets back to me that I’ve read somewhere that SU-25 will go back but even all choppers, that’s kind of too much too early.

Tudor Miron

Can’t protect them properly? But can protect others? But not choppers? :)

Dr. Pro Liv

If they are dispersed on different Syrian airports outside of Russian base why is so funny to have possibility that they can’t protect them properly you retard?!
If they had their airplanes damaged in Russian base … than there is even higher possibility to have that in Syrian air-bases you dimwit !!

Tudor Miron

Cool down. When(if) you stop name calling and start acting as an adult than I will answer.

Dr. Pro Liv

don’t answer.

Tudor Miron

No, they were not. First of all, attack helicopters are on constant combat patrol around airbase for sequrity reasons. If we don’t see them on this pictures doesn’t mean they are not there. Also, Russian forces are spread via many areas now. Hmeymim is not “home” for K-52 for example.

RichardD

It looks to me like the Syrian government coalition is gearing up to expand the no fly zone over the 70% of Syria west of the river to the remaining 30% of Syria at the Jordan border crossing and east of the river. And to advance underneath it to clear the remaining 30% of Syria occupied the terrorists, secessionists and their Jew world order supporters.

New Russian built bridge in Dier Ezzor:
comment image

RichardD
PZIVJ

Nice tactical bridge.
From pix of main highway bridge it had two gaps blown in it and was not “destroyed”, no doubt this will take time and money to fix correctly.

RichardD

It’s a single lane bridge with 3,000 vehicle a day capacity, including heavy haul, and a pedestrian walkway next to the vehicle lane. It’s enough to handle the limited traffic just for the Dier Ezzor enclave and surrounding area under government control on the east side of the river for now. As long as it doesn’t get washed out again by releasing a flood from the dam up river. The Russians and Syrians have probably reached an understanding with the dam keepers not to do that again or else there will be consequences.

The damaged bridge may have to be demolished and replaced with a new structure for safety purposes. Yes a temporary repair could be made for light traffic. But it’s questionable if it would be safe for carrying a lot of weight. Considering the extent of the current damage. The new military bridge is a less expensive, safer, and faster alternative.

SnowCatzor

Cool pics, although I kinda wish they’d get rid of those bright colours on the Su-34’s; they look kinda weird. Also retire the Su-24 already, it’s way too old and vulnerable these days.

Su-24 is still a good plane with recent upgrades, and is in low threat environment.
Why retire a plane if the air frame still has life in it. :)

Not yet! Su-24 is a tried and tested bomber perfect in annihilating terrorists in Syria and anywhere in the world:

You do realise they fly in the sky which is a light blue in the ME don’t you ?.

It’s the bright blue colour that doesn’t make any sense, not light blue of the Su-35s.

I think John is ignoring you Graeme.
I recall that long argument, but it is springtime. :)

The two A-50 AWACS big boys – full of early warning surveillance, and electronic jamming, suites.

The basic Flanker family design – with the upper cockpit hump counter balanced by the under-slung air intakes, and it all tapering along a central axis to the exhaust nozzles, is just a thing of sweeping beauty.
