Sattelite Images: Russia Finishes Construction Of 18 Aircraft Shelters In Its Hmeimim Airbase In Syria

Support SouthFront

Fresh satteilte images reveal that Russia has almost finished the construction of new aircraft shelters in its Hmeimim airbase in Syria. This effort was first revealed in October 2018 amid an increase of militant UAV attacks on the Russian facility. While a vast majority of these attacks was successfully repelled by local air defense forces, the Russian side is undertaking actions to increase safety of its air group in the war-torn country.

Russia should be ready, Netanyahu wants to down today or tomorrow the Russian civilian jet.

Zionism = EVIL

They have been trying to down an Iranian transport but have failed so far. But the Zionists will keep trying unless the Russian decoration piece S-300 start working.

Tudor Miron

Steady work according to plan.

gustavo

So, Israel-USA are now ready to attack this facility.

Nah! The main purpose of this is to make it more difficult for the satellite observers to count the planes on the ground, as well as to protect against shrapnel from random attacks, (and to give some shade from the scorching summer sun!). Hardly any shelter can protect from direct attack.

Good sensible comment. Modern bunker buster bombs would go through any amount of reinforced concrete as Saddam found out too late. Only underground dispersion and decoys help.comment image

Make them thick enough and a reinforced concrete structure will do fine. Nazi U-Boat pens did fine against Allied bombing. And the British threw 10 ton bombs at them. Modern reinforced concrete construction is even better then back then. Saddam’s problem was that his structures were built by western companies during the war with Iran, when Iraq was the West’s darling, that then briefed the US coalition on their construction and weak spots. The US coalition also enjoyed complete air superiority and could bomb these bunkers whenever, however and god knows how many times as they wanted.

In the case of Khmeimin the objective is less to survive WWIII and more to prevent Jihadi drones from enjoying a lucky shot.

Exactly, they should be taking advantage of topography as well. Latakia province is quite hilly and resembles Mazandaran in Iran and ideal for tunneling mountain hangers and connecting air strips. The Swedes excel at integrating highways with hidden and well camouflaged mountain pens and maintenance facilities. Only the Shah of Iran had that vision and I believe to this day, Chah Bahar is an excellent example. Syrians have learnt a lot from this US/Zionist sponsored terror war and should now concentrate on building defences for a prolonged asymmetrical war.

Barba_Papa

NO they aren’t, because they are not that stupid.

RichardD

Where are the new shelters? I don’t see any new shelters.

goingbrokes

The long strip of a building that casts a shadow!

RichardD

Thank you, but it doesn’t look big enough to fit planes in.

MikeH

Look at the various Su-24 and Su-27+ fighters in the lower part of the upper photo. Compare the size to the slots and the height of the shadow. It is big enough.

These are mere 5 meter blast walls, separating the planes. The headchoppers last year lobbed some 122mm rockets that took out 8 Ruski washing machines as they were lined up unprotected parade style. It took the dumb Ruski’s one year to even put concrete blast walls between planes, let alone build hardened pens with 4 meter curved rebar concrete and decoys. To build blast proof pens extensive ground excavation and earth moving is needed and it costs money and strategic planning.

Russia has $1/2 TRILLION in gold and foreign reserves, aka cash in the bank, and no debt. It’s costing them about $1 billion a year to fight the Syrian war against an opposition that has spent somewhere in the neighborhood of $40 billion and is well on the way to complete defeat.

Actually, if Russia was managed properly it would be the world’s richest country. Sadly the Jew virus has infected Russia and the Oligarchs are siphoning the money out of Russia to the west. Just read a report on Jews transferring billion to Cyprus and buying up all the properties and changing the demographic composition of Cyprus and using it as a base in case of war.

RichardD

Do you have a link for the report?

The whole planet should be dejudified. With no debt, $1/2 trillion in gold and cash. And the most technologically advanced military on the planet in areas that matter. Russia is at or near the pinnacle of the richest and best run governments on the planet.

Zionism = EVIL

Google Russian Jew Oligarchs buying Cyprus. Al-Jazeera also has a 20 minute documentary as Russians (mostly Jews) using Cyprus as a gateway into EU. Just half a million Euros can buy a Cyprus passport. The Zionist airforce with Greeks also exercises from British controlled Cypriot bases, and also from Italy and Greece including Sardinia. Italian Decimomannu air base on the Sardinia island of Italy is a backstop for Israel Air Force planes in case of a war. Israel has a permanent presence at three Italian airbases and two in Greece.

Have you looked at US flight capital? Russia’s is 1% of the US’.

The IAF can be shot down over the Mediterranean just as easily as it can be over Israel and Lebanon.

100 Jews live in Cyprus. Your demographics nonsense just adds to all of the other anti Russia disinfo and bashing that you’re known for.

jokeman :)))))))))))

RichardD

And your point is?

vladput

first, so mach miney never had russia. second, gold is gold, it is nothing. russia is poor, the citizens leave russia because of low life level.

vladput

not trillions

RichardD

The chart is in billions. $1/2 trillion is $500 billion.comment image

vladput

i was right

RichardD

About what?

vladput

you should learn to read

RichardD

You’re an idiot.

vladput

tells nothing. the lowest ar the mst poor countries.

RichardD

China has the world’s largest or second largest economy. Russia has the most powerful or second most powerful military. Those aren’t poor countries. Net worth is measured by your assets minus your liabilities. That puts the ones in the red far down the list of rich countries. They can’t even pay their bills without borrowed money.

vladput

:DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

RichardD

You’re an idiot.

This is sensible defensive tactic and should apply to all Syrian and Iranian airbases. Taking advantage of terrain like mountains is also feasible for underground parking and rearming. The late Shah, who was an accomplished pilot directed the construction of the Iranian superbase TAB 10 at Chah Bahar which is almost all underground and can withstand any conventional attack. It literally controls access to the Persian Gulf and in 1979 had over 100 F-14A and F-4E based there. There are two runways at this base. Both are asphalt. The majority of
the facility is located underground blended in with hilly coastal topography of Persian Gulf. Reported at the base as
of 2018 were the 101st Tactical Fighter Squadron, flying F-4D aircraft,
and a detachment of Su-24 Fencer aircraft. A base SAR flight with AB-212 and
Bell 214 helicopters was also reported.
