    kudos to each and one … God bless the superheroes for more inevitable victory

    • dutchnational

      On behalf of the SDF, I thank you.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        He meant the SAA and the Allies which have stood tall and the SDF have not stood at all,typical of US choosing the lame allies and proxies. They always chose the ones whom are weak and with no stamina and cave at the first real fight.

      • MD Ranix

        if the sdf goes to the right path which she is not at the moment … still time to repent sdf … tk u terra cotta woolpuller

  • Jordan Katz

    What about those islands in the middle of the river? Seems like a good place to control.

    • testera

      Looks more like a killing ground to me. Hard to get on and off, and open to fire from multiple angles.

  • John Brown

    All the SAA has to do is land some troops by helicopter and drive some tanks to the other side of River and it is theirs. Russian tanks can drive under water, through a river no problem. 99.9.% of ISIS is on the south side of the river to fight the SAA while their SDF allies advance with new SDF uniforms for them. Maybe some SAA can dress up as the SDF and attack ISIS north of the river to try to ruin the ISIS / SDF alliance.

    • dutchnational

      A tank, even a russian one, is no submarine. Some tanks cqn cross waters, no tank is submersible.

      • Divesh Kumar

        Don’t worry US stoog they are any way not coming to your home after crossing river…. It’s just they will f**K your ISIS buddys there.

        • dutchnational

          I am not worried at all.

          If tyou want to get f.cked by buddies, there are other, more anally oriented sites available.

          I refer you to those.

        Wrong liar. Pretty much everything you say is a lie.
        See video Watch: Russian ‘Scuba Tank’ Goes Underwater. …
        The T-72 main battle tank can be fitted with a snorkel for deep fording, and takes about 20 minutes to prepare for amphibious use. In the video, the B3 variant, which can operate up to five metres underwater, is completely submerged.Sep 19, 2016

        Tank drivers from the 27th Tank Brigade are taking their underwater driving exams. Watch this RIA Novosti video to see how the T-90 tanks, which weigh several tons, drive five meters underwater.

        • dutchnational

          You are now talking about tanks especially outfitted. Maybe you are correct in this.

          In your comment, you were talking about “some tanks”.

          “Some tanks” are not submersible. You are the liar.

          • John Brown

            Gothca you Mosaad pathetic disinfo liar! “Some tanks”. What tanks do the Syrians have??? Some Russian tanks. Not American, not Israeli, no they are Russian T-72 and T-90 just like I showed.
            You said “no tank is submersible” Well the T-72 and T-90 are and can totally submerged and are submersible by up to 5 meters, maybe deeper if they have a longer snorkel.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The Abrams will sink in shallower depths than the Euphrates and the Merkava is a lead stone. The US has been looking for a replacement for some time, many of it’s allies went for the C2m4 which is smaller than the Leopard C2A7 and more agile.

          • BMWA1

            Nice video, traction (sediment type at bottom) and current strength (as also influences traction and velocity) seem to be the main limiting factors.

          • John Brown

            So Mossad can’t anyone get fired in the Mossad anymore? You should be fired for incompetence. You lies are too easy for me to prove to be lies. Maybe you are just use to being a spoilt bastard who thinks he is a chosen superior man a god that can do no wrong and never had to compete for anything in his life without it just being given to you after it was stolen from your Goyim slaves

        • Valery Grigoryev

          Who can guarantee that the depth of Euphrates is less than 5 meters there?
          It is not a small river.
          The second aspect is that the bottom of the river may be not solid but silty.
          So, the problem is not so easy.

          • John Brown

            I am sure the SAA and the Russians know where the points they can cross are. The depth is also totally dependent on the time of year and how much the upstream dams let out. The river can be totally drained, right to the river bottom so one can walk across no problem, if the upstream dams close.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            That river is always low at this time , can’t change how the river acts since any release of water would put all the power generation and water flow to cities down, which would cause a humanitarian crisis.

        • Mattias Dahlström

          A T72 can driver across a river on it’s bottom if it is driving on a concrete ramp. A real river with mud and silt and potentially steep sections is a very different ballgame. SAA possibly does have prepared fords, otherwise I don’t see it happening.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Yes, we see the ISIS dressed up as SDF ,just like how you admitted they are both the same groups is SDF and ISIS.

    • testera

      Forgetting about logistics is a sure way to lose a battle. Droping troops and fording the river is the easiest part of the operation.

      • John Brown

        The Kurds have no heavy weapons and are advancing with a skeleton force, with no opposition. The SAA would have them out gunned with tanks and added to that artillery support just across the river and Russian air power, which is why I think Russia just brought more air superiority fighters to Syria. I doubt the Kurds would dare to attack.

        • testera

          Kurds might not be dangerous, but ISIS Airforce strike followed by Toyota assault surely is. Crossing Euphrates is a big deal and should be treated like that.

  • dutchnational

    Nice info.
    Still, it is unclear what the tactical impact is. Why not advance to the east if the goal is to cross and advance on the Omar fields. This will only see the SDF take the east.

    • Divesh Kumar

      US stooge

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Nah,Just one of the Anarchy crowd being a shill and troll like they always are, easily mislead.
