Satellite Image: Russian Aerospace Forces Deployed Su-25 Warplanes In Central Syria

Donate

On June 15, a defense observer on Twitter known as Obretix released a satellite image revealing that the Russian Aerospace Forces had deployed at least four Su-25 warplanes in the strategic T-4 airbase in central Syria.

The Su-25 Grach is a single-seat, twin-engine, close air support warplane developed by Sukhoi. The warplane’s latest upgrade, the Su-25sm3, is equipped with the advanced tactical EW suite Vitebsk-25, the SOLT-25 day\night electro-optical targeting system, a new encrypted communications system and an updated navigation system.

Obertix’s image also showed one Russian Forpost unnamed aerial vehicle (UAV). Forpost is a is a licensed copy of the Israeli IAI Searcher reconnaissance UAV, with an operation range of 200km and an endurance of around 18 hours.

It remains unclear if the Su-25s and the UAV were redeployed from the Hmeimim airbase on the Syrian coast, or if they are a new batch that arrived from Russia recently.

The deployment at the T-4 airbase would allow the Su-25s to provide Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops in eastern Homs and western Deir Ezzor with close air support in the case of any attack by ISIS. The warplanes can also reach the frontlines around Idlib from the airbase.

      Ha ha stupid , Russia tells its friends all it knows about the USA and that’s not much and its only got a few terrorist friends like N Korea , Iran and the shitthole Venezuela .

        Canada … always in the shadow of the USA always USA’s biatch.
        The world respects Mexico and Venezuela 100 times more than it respects Canada, you should know that Canadian !

        North Korea – No Rothschild Central Bank or debt.
        Iran – No Rothschild Central Bank or debt.
        Venezuela – minimal Rothschild debt and a wealth of natural resources.

        Spot a pattern.

        Russia, part of BRICS and part of the SCO. Between them, over half the world’s population, $trillions in currency reserves, dominant in the service and manufacturing industry and the majority of the world’s natural resources. They are also turning their backs on trading in the $US.

        Russia, the nuclear triad nation, with active service hypersonics, and a defence budget of only $47 billion, and decreasing. Bearing in mind, similar amount is spent on UK defence and we only have a dinghy, supporting the Navy, which manages to patrol Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight. We part exchanged our Harriers, for the overpriced, junk, known as the F35 and how many have we got so far? Is it one or two?

        US, the other nuclear triad nation, with no active service, hypersonics, and a defence budget of over $717 billion and rising. Not forgetting the world’s largest debtor nation, also has over $21 trillion in national debt, not forgetting their domestic debt. So much higher.

        When did Venezuela last invade anybody?
        When did Iran last invade anybody?
        When did North Korea last invade anybody?

        Which is the only nation, to use atom bombs, on innocent civilians?
        Which nation has only managed to achieve 19 years peace, in total, since 4 July 1776?

    Most of Middle-East countries are failed states or repressive. They need some strong man in front or behind to keep going, whether it’s Trump, Putin or the Ayathollas. Understanding many want to emigrate. Time for a change. Russia also need a positive change cause their economy is too monopolized and corrupt. Only weaponry works well, they have a handfull (10) good aircraft like SU-57 and 100 SU-35. But they can’t make a good passenger car so far. My impression.

    • Tudor Miron

      I suggest that you go back to MSM world.

      • pandor99

        A lot of apologizes. Middle-Est is very democratic and people don’t want to emigrate. Russia is of course non-corrupt and producing good passenger cars, the people in Russia are rich and happy just like they were under communism. MSM in Russia are just great, like RT and Sputnik News. Just like they were under communism.

          Russia is a shitthole and the Russians know it but don’t want to die for saying it .

            Tell that to Seth Rich and all the others.

            Funny, you go to Sputnik or Russia Today, and happily comment, from all sides of the argument, without getting banned.

            You go to Western Media, who either refuse to accept comments, or refuse to post them.

            Nemptsov – the false flag, taken out by Ukraine, you mean? What did Russia have to gain, when he had minimal support and was no threat to anybody? Why were Ukraine SBU and Maidan cheerleaders in Moscow, on the day he was taken out? Not forgetting how quickly his Ukrainian girlfriend, Anna Duritskaya disappeared, just after his death. Didn’t she rush back to Kiev and wonder if she took her SBU friends with her?

            Now who did it benefit? Certainly not Russia.

          • theo retep

            These are people that want to be Communist so bad it hurts.. of course they do not understand that the way they live now will get much worse quickly if we were to go full Commie…. it was not brilliance and an understanding of politics that brought them to the position they are in now…

          • AM Hants

            Nalvany – who came to recognition, courtesy of the US NGO funded NED programme. Now why was he sent to prison? What is his background?

            The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is Now Officially “Undesirable” in Russia… https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-national-endowment-for-democracy-ned-is-now-officially-undesirable-in-russia/5468215

            First priority of Government, is the national security and defence of it’s nation. Remind me, why is Edward Snowden living in Russia? Not forgetting what is happening to Julian Assange. Then you have the Clinton Kill List, and how do the Clinton’s handle those who are not faithful to the Clinton Foundation?

            Nemptsov – again why did his girlfriend flee back to Kiev, with her SBU friends, who just happened to be on the streets, when the ‘Nemptsov’ false flag went down. Costing him his life. He was no threat to the Russian Government, just a joke, with minimal supporters. Do believe, if he went for the vote, he had under 1% support. Yet, how valuable was he dead, rather than alive, for those finding fault with Russia?

            No doubt he had many enemies, the Russian Government being the last in the queue.

      What are you on about?

      Russia has moved on since the Yeltsin era, which left them bankrupt.

      Now, sort out the disloyal oligarchs and took back control of their vast wealth of natural resources. Healthy gold and currency reserves. Flat rate taxation, for all tax payers, including oligarchs. Believe it is 13%, no tax avoidance schemes. Paid off the $45 billion Soviet Union debt and $16.5 billion, Russian Federation debt. Now minimal debt, creditor nation, which provides free healthcare and education to university level, for it’s people.

      In the meantime, the US has got over $21 trillion national debt to pay off. Not a good look, for the world’s largest, debtor nation.

      Do believe that President Putin is more than happy with his passenger car. Which just happens to be Russian. Do believe they are rolling similar models out, for the general public.

      PS, by the way, Russia is a nuclear, triad nation, with active service hypersonics. Run on a defence budget of $47 billion and decreasing.

      US is a nuclear triad nation, the only other, with China virtually there. With no hypersonics in active service and a defence budget of $717 billion and rising.

      Bosses travel in High End Euro Cruisers…Armor plated, etc…. the peons get the Trabant,…

  • Shy Talk

    satellites can see a lot of things, but not everything, we all know this, they are easily deceived

  • Joe Dickson

    I have to disagree with the cost effectiveness of dumb bombs. In order for the SVP-24 to guarantee a hit within the CEP it has to conduct saturation bombing. This means one target per sortie and is not cost effective at all to an aircraft with several LGBs neutralizing multiple targets during the same sortie. Russia would actually save money if they gave up dumb bombs and switched to straight PGMs. Any cheap laser guidance will do.

    • Sinbad2

      So you are saying that the USA, a country that uses 90% dumb bombs is stupid.
      I concur.

      • Joe Dickson

        The percentage hasn’t been that low in 30 years. It just goes to show how far behind the times you have fallen.

      • theo retep

        No reading comprehension and no real facts… is there a Russian CNN… though pravda bit the dust?

    • Vitex

      I think laser-guided artillery is the next big thing. Lower sortie costs and much the same effect! Some of the footage of Syria certainly suggests the SAA are trialling some nice new Russian munitions

      • Sinbad2

        We used to use radar guided artillery, you were guaranteed a direct hit on the 3rd round, with a fire rate of 35 rounds a minute.
        Of course your range is limited by the curvature of the earth, that applies to radar and lasers.

      Not in the budget,…boss needs a new Rolls…. that comes first….

    Well Done and hats off Spain !

    EU Member State Launches First 5G Network Using Huawei Equipment, Defying US Pressure.

    One of the world’s biggest mobile operators, Vodafone, has launched its first commercial 5G network in 15 Spanish cities, including Madrid and Barcelona, using Huawei tech.

    The roll-out took place despite US pressure on European Union member states to ban Huawei from participating in the construction of 5G networks.

    However, Vodafone CEO Nick Read slammed the US demands, saying that ditching Huawei would delay the delivery of the network by around two years.

      Also Huawei sales have risen since the US started attacking them, and Apple sales have fallen
      Wowwei.

      • Toronto Tonto

        NO CHINESE JUNK HERE DIKCHESSE .

        • AM Hants

          Brilliant phone. Had to wait 3 weeks, for my order, owing to demand being so high and waiting for new stock to arrive from China.

          • theo retep

            Took time to complete the installation of all the newest spy ware,.. enjoy!

          • AM Hants

            Funnily enough, owing to the UK being one of the most surveillance friendly nations, where the public are concerned, would prefer the Chinese having access to my privacy, then the UK or US, come to that.

          • Sinbad2

            Had my Huawei for 5 years never missed a beat.
            I used to do IT support, HP went from being as good as it gets, to total rubbish.
            American cars just fall apart after 7 or 8 years, Toyota’s just keep going.
            Quality has its own rewards.

          • AM Hants

            My son got a Huawei, last year and must admit, seriously liked his phone. Particularly the camera. Doubt he will change suppliers, as he seriously likes the phone and supplier.

    • AM Hants

      Nice one. Just got my Huawei, after waiting for a few weeks, owing to demand over-riding stock. Love it. Especially knowing Google has walked away from them. The reason I wanted the phone, besides liking my son’s Huawei and not trusting the UK, not to ban them.

      Funny thing, Huawei is contracted to make certain parts for the US F35. Funny that, with the US being so precious, with regards trying to take out Huawei.

      Well done Vodaphone.

        As much as I love MY Motorola this might be the time for end titles…

        • AM Hants

          I only went for the Huawei, owing to the Globalists freaking out and when Google threw their hissy fit, well, it so made sense. One way of protesting.

      also spain and iran are the only ones too issue an arrest warrant for nutface chickenpoo and the flottila massacre of peace activists.

  • Sinbad2

    I hope they have good air defense in place.
    If they start attacking the terrorists the US will try to bomb the planes.

  • FlorianGeyer

    I recommend that Russia invests is a few thousand sandbags to create rudimentary blast walls between aircraft AND space them out a bit.
    I realise that all military types like straight lines and neatness, but evan one mortar bomb amongst that lot would cause great damage.

    • Sinbad2

      The pic is probably fake, it’s typical American/Israeli BS

        Then they can photoshop in some blast walls for Florian :)

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    good, keep them coming russia

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    they need to send alot of attack choppers too and attack the rats at night

  • KingOfAllAnimals

    Good for Russia. It isn’t like they are sitting on their hands and letting terrorists play in their back yard. Sadly there are too many IDIOTS who want to play like America is the villain of this play. T those of you who wish to bash America, UP YOURS! https://media2.giphy.com/media/NDwyuse1W4KGY/giphy.gif
    What I find being sad is that most of you forget it is the UN who puts America up to being the police force and savior of the world. Most of us would rather the rest of you sort things out for yourselves and if you employ nukes be ready to get nuked. The fact is Iran is an instigating nation who is asking to get their backsides spanked. Now if you think this is just America playing here one should be asking who else stands to reap huge rewards from America being the world’s police? WHO has America been acting for? Well, oil seems to be big in the center of this fiasco. And then the money trail. Can any of you say Multinational Corporations? Maybe instead of focusing on America you should be looking at who the real power players really are. Why does NATO Europe hide behind America? There are no more scary Communist Russians to menace Western Europe. And there is one other thing to consider, the Democrat Party in America led us into WW1, WW2, and all wars short of Iraq and Afghanistan. I don’t see Russia as our enemy as much as I do Socialists and Communists, foreign or domestic and I certainly do not see the EU as America’s friend either. If all you can do is hate on America up yours. Haters gotta hate.

    Assads and the second class Hesbollahs has lost it all the way down to Eufrat. Now Russians has to be babysitters again.

    T4 is a very good target for “is anybody out there”. A couple of gunships and no sandstorms will hope too.
