    Seems the loyalists are always a couple of capable units short to pursue all key objectives. At one point, there were supposed to be Chinese trainers in Syria; has anyone ever seen them? Does Syria have units worth training available?

    • Ronald

      The Chinese trainers were for medical only . The Syrians would probably be more qualified to train the Chinese than vice versa .
      After six years of fighting the best equipped mercenaries and jihadists money can buy , Syria’s training , is old school , in the field .

      The Chinese provided new medical equipment for the Hospitals and special advisers in the medical training on the new equipment for the Hospitals. They are also providing training in the medical servicing of the equipment.

    God bless the SAA and their allies. At least they will end the conflict.

    This is second worst captured equipment photo I have seen. Firepower is on the level of average American school shooting, and the mystery gun on the right is more likely to kill the shooter then the target.

    • Jakke1899

      Yes, i doubt SAA would use such ancient museum piece. A russian instructer would simply headbut the Saa soldier caught with this!
      Most likely a foto of there own weapons.

        This is the equipment they took off the YPJ the rocket launcher still has the YPJ flag on it.

    SAA and allies need proper plaining in this area and every one in the SAA and allies should know the plaining.
