    Talking about lunch, terrorists probably hungry for some new missiles, unfortunately they’ll be delivered straight to their faces

    From the translated Gazeta.ru article.

    This will be the first time “Admiral Kuznetsov” has been used in a combat situation. (good training)

    The main targets will be the distant approaches of the Aleppo terrorists where they are concentrated. Primary targets are: training camps, supply depots, and fortified positions. To accomplish finding the targets, they have significantly increased the number of Russian intelligence officers/agents, along with drones and space based satellites.

    While the first time Russia used tens of cruise missiles, this time they will use hundreds.

    I get the sense they will also be going after heavy equipment like tanks, etc., but it’s still unclear exactly the extent of where they will be targeting the terrorists. They will not be targeting within the 10km of Aleppo. So the question is, where are the terrorists concentrated enough to make it a worthy target of expensive cruise missiles?

    The fleet has been doing the workup and training needed to execute the plan. Just in time for the US elections to be over and done with.

  • If Hillary wins, their is going to be war with Russia.
    If Trump wins, their is going to be peace with Russia and war with the UK-Empire.
    We hate the UK-Empire.

    The only rotational reason that I can make out of this in advance announcement of a missile strike on terrorists positions, is to give the U.S special forces (and others) just enough time to get the hell out of Dodge, or they will be buried there. It’s the Russian polite way to say get the fuck out of there,now!
