    How is possible that such a big plane carries only 6 bombs???

    • dutchnational

      How is it possible that Ru bombers are bombing a city that, acc to Ru MOD, was liberated over a week ago and, acc to them, all tales of IS being in AB were fake news?

      Imo it is Ru MOD spreading fake news time and again. Who is tho say that these bombs are dropped on AB?

      • Stevan Kljajic

        It was liberated, but ISIS took it again 4-5 days ago, that is nothing new in that war because SAA don’t have enough man power for all fronts they are engaged!!! SAA fights in Syria with ISIS, FSA, Kurds, USA, Israel, Turkey, Al Nusra Front,….., so they must redeploy forces from battle to battle!!! But for day or two the town will be free again, don’t you “worry”, Russian bombers will fix the situation!!!

          No need to have a reasonable discourse with deeply indoctrinated people or/and paid trolls. I made a mistake to reply to him, too. Only wanted to point out to simple manipulation he is regularly using.

        • dutchnational

          I know all that but Ru MOD denied this so either now lying or lying last week. Cannot be correct when contradicting.

          • Ibrahim Moni

            The headline says “NEAR AB” and not AB city. The city was liberated and now SAA want to liberate its vicinity, hence the bombers are bombing those vicinities. You want to prove MoD lies, yet it’s you who misread the headline of this post. Come with another excuse, not this one.

      • Ante SMB

        Nederlander who shows love to sharia infected rapers is spreading propaganda again…
        Only simple answer to your propaganda is to read the title and the article again and explain where exactly is written that Russia is bombing the city itself? They are bombing positions of evil you protect and love so much NEAR THE CITY.
        Maybe you marry one of your wahabies butchers, so he can get citizenship of your country and show you his inhuman techniques in live. Marring a man is a behavior normal in your country.
        We the Russians will liberate our allies from Nazism once more, like we did it more than 70 years ago. But you don’t come crying to us when you are overrun with the scum you love and support so much.

        • nwoecb

          Hahaha.. DutchNational always spreads his love for Zionism, but when it comes to defending Europe from mass immigration he is nowhere to be found.

        RU MOD is not spreading fake news, ISIS and their handlers are the fake news propagaters. So, Russian Air Force bombed Abu Khamal and Syrian and Hezbollah forces took the city after ISIS units withdrew south, south east; of course the coalition Air Force did not molest retreating ISIS forces who were reinforced with those fleeing Iraq, and counterattacked Abu Khamal.

        What don’t you seem to understand? More vermin being cornered to be exterminated.

        • John Whitehot

          it’s just that lots of people are heartbroken at seeing their jihadist pets exterminated

        • dutchnational

          On the 8th Ru MOD gave the report AB was taken. Despite even SAA acknowledging they, or their allies, were kicked out of AB either the 9th or the tenth, Ru MOD insisted this was all fake news and AB was and is taken.

          So in their fabricated story, when they now say they are bombing AB, either they are now lying or they were lying last week.

          It can all be found in SF reports over the last week.

          Simple logic.

          • Jesus

            It is your distorted and biased logic. Abu Kamal was taken, ISIS counterattacked, and the counterattack was beaten back. Moscow is not going to provide day by day commentary on the battle, from their standpoint the city was taken despite some unforeseen tactical developments that did not materialize to immediate ISIS benefit.
            It was you who was notoriously pointing the bad week SAA and the Russians were having when ISIS attacked several points along Sukhana- Deir Ezzor axis, only to find out that ISIS was badly mauled in their US directed counterattack.

            It is you who distorts actual reality to fit your narrative in supporting SDF and ISIS vermin supported and fed by the US.

      • John Whitehot

        “all tales of IS being in AB were fake news”

        wrong and false.

        sorry, but the more you are willing to lie the more your side loses value. at this point you’re at a ridiculous level, but i’m sure you can get even lower than that.

    • Jesus

      Extended range reduces payload, these bombers are flying from Russia and don’t do air refueling over Iran or Iran. Quite likely the bombs are 1000 kgs, if the bombers were to fly from the airbase in Iran the plane could carry a payload of 20,000 kgs.

      • Tudor Miron

        Up to 24000kg

        • Jesus

          Cool.

    • Danny Freeman

      Because they don’t use air refueling above Iran or Iraq, so they need to sacrifice the bomb payload to fuel payload. Anyhow this is still 6x1000kg bombs and this makes a big diference comparing to 250 or 500 kg bombs usualy droped from the atack planes.

      • John Whitehot

        the bombs are FAB 500, 500 kgs each.

        • Danny Freeman

          Ok, tnx for info

        • Solomon Krupacek

          russian kilo is sesqui kilo

      • testera

        They used to pack 12 OFAB 250, now they use 6 FAB 500.

        • John Whitehot

          more hardened targets as opposed to manpower concentrations in open terrain

    • John Whitehot

      combat loads of aircraft are decided on the basis of the given task, not in a “load the more you can” basis.

      • Turbofan

        Thats nonsense.If it was about task why not just load the planes and send fewer of them. Danny Freeman below is spot on.Its about sacrificing bombs for fuel.

        • John Whitehot

          ya ya, keep raveling in ignorance.

    I seriously doubt the effectiveness of those TU22 raids. Given what the ResistanceAxis forces uncovered in terms of quantities of ammo/tanks in virtually open field conditions – I simply wonder why the Russians didn’t take these targets out during all those months prior. Are the Russians being honest towards Syria? Or do they have a deal with Israel to prevent the Syrian army from being too strong to retake the Golan? Most likely such a deal exists; all objective metrics point towards this.

    • testera

      These missions are excellent for combat training/testing, just like all of those seemingly unnecessary launches of cruise missiles. It is surely more effective to drop those bombs here, than on some training ground in Russia. Videos like this are also good for morale of troops and general population, and bad for morale of dutchnational and his fellow jihadists. All in all, money well spent.

      • gustavo

        Moment, the point here is that Russia can use kalibr precision missiles, helicopters, ans Su-planes, night vision helicopters to protect and support grorund troops, and we do not see anything like this.

        • testera

          Just because you don’t see daily videos and combat livestream doesn’t mean things are not happening. Giving enemy information is a very dumb thing to do in any war, and Russians are not dumb.
          Tactical airstrikes are most efficient thing here and they are happenening all day, every day. Strategic bombers and cruise missiles are useful against strategic targets, and there are not many of those left.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      you are absolutely right

    • John Whitehot

      “I seriously doubt the effectiveness of those TU22 raids”

      Exposed!
      what a hit on Russia and Syria morale.
