Satellite Images Provide Fresh Look At Aircraft Deployed At Russian Airbase In Syria

Donate

On July 13, Obretix, a defense observer on Twitter, released new satellite images of the Russian Hmeimim airbase on the Syrian coast.

The new images show that the airbase is currently hosting seven Su-24, four Su-25, seven Su-34, four Su-35 warplanes as well as an A-50 airborne early warning and control (AEW&C), an IL-20 electronic intelligence (ELINT) plane, two IL-76 and an An-30 cargo planes.

The warplanes were all deployed in the airbase’s ramp. This indicates that the hardened aircraft shelters are still under construction. New revetments are also being built in the northeastern section of the airbase.

Few days ago, militants stationed in Greater Idlib attempted to target Hmeimim airbase with three armed drones. However, Russian air-defense systems foiled the attack.

The Russian aerial group deployed in Hmeimim airbase is currently supporting the SAA’s limited operations around Greater Idlib. Russian warplanes are also conducting regular sorties over the Homs desert, where hundreds of ISIS terrorists are repeatedly hiding.

    should be enough to deter the squatters should they be unwise to do something rash, like attacking the base or the saa in the neighbourhood. guess netanyahu is just sitting it out hoping that iran will do something stupid (which they won’t) causing the morons from the white house to start an all out war. in a way that would be good since it would spell the end of the squatters, but not quite yet.

      Russia would be the main beneficiary from a war between US and Iran. I wouldn’t be surprise if they stage with Israel a fake Iranian attack to push USA attack Iran

        don’t be daft – suspect you’re just an unemployed kike in your mama’s basement while she’s dispensing herpes on the streets

          Does that you feel the same? That Russia would benefit the most from a war between Iran and USA?

  • TiredOfBsToo

    Undoubtibly, Israel and/or friends just providing targeting coordinates to it’s terorist friends.

    • occupybacon

      Yeah cause Google Earth was not invented in Russia, yet.

    When the solution to Idlib is eventually found, then the Turks are going to have to find a solution to Kurdish control in E.Syria.

    I think UK is not happy with the current gains of Syrian army and of their allies because most of land Idlib, north of hama, Al Tanf and north east Syria occupied by UK.

    HTS, ISIS, Israel are tools of UK.
