SyMod: The SAA controls Masharah and Tel Masharah
Anarchist Kurds Fighting The Patriarchy And The State
Kafr Shams and Umm al-Awsaj under army
So now we have a total of 1 S-200 radar and 1 Pantsir-S1 that were destroyed in regards to air defense?
This one makes sense. In the audio and video my friend sent me there was a lot of explosions, quiet, and then an explosion again.
When Wael become a reliable source?
We’ll see later. It’s certainly possible.
Any update on reported casualties?
SAA Statement today reports three killed and two injured in total.
The Israelis seem to know just which anti-aircraft systems aren't manned by Russian personnel.
I spoke to a soldier who works there and told me what israel hit was a weapons depot that they hit every year. I'm not sure where the Twitter user got his info from.
Israeli reporters claimed earlier today a Pantsir system was destroyed among other air defenses, so the reports on this one are coming from both sides, which makes it much more likely to be true.
Okay so I confirmed with the soldier stationed there, he said 2 soldiers died (martyred) when the weapons depot was hit. He even invited my buddy and I to show us the weapons system intact in a couple of days ( when things die down) which we kindly declined. (F that).
so the reports on this one are coming from both sides
We have Israel + some guy on twitter so far. One source is heavily biased and reliability of the second one is questionable.
96К6 is not some impossible target, but I'd say we wait for something more substantial.
I just now clicked on the link and saw who it is coming from, yeah I agree this twitter source is pretty shit.
In any case I agree it's impossible to tell anything for sure at this point, I just thought I'd add the fact there are reports coming from other, unrelated sources as well.
What does "moving to reload" mean in this context? Was it moving from one location to another? Or was it not moving but it was reloading?
If it was actually in motion that it would a harder target to hit.
What is supposed to be at the AL Mazzeh AB?
The weapons system can only carry so many missiles. The Pantsir has both guns and missiles, and an onboard radar; it is capable of firing on the move. It may have been headed to meet up with its resupply truck with its radar and guns still on when it got hit with a radar seeking missile.
This is just wild speculation.
Also could be the fact that some of the Israeli jets were there to respond to threats and therefore it was being tracked for a long time, if IAF were seeing no threat from the Pantsir and they were receiving intelligence and surveillance of their ground missiles hitting there targets then better to wait until the Pantsir has no defence to hit it.
If the radar is on, it's just a giant beacon of light saying 'come kill me' to the appropriate weapon. They are known to employ both the Shrike and the Standard, and have developed ground based launchers for them.
They still use Shrike's? And Standards? I thought those had been phased out more than a decade or two ago.
What about HARMs? Or the Delilah? Harop?
Yes, you're right. I don't know/can't comment about the other systems.
Oh yeah there is no doubt if radar was still on then it was an easy kill for the IAF, although surely the SAA would have been trained to know when and when not to have radar on. Hopefully we will find out some more info soon, definitely interesting either way.
I would suggest it would depend on it's deployment. ~ either way though it's not going to reload whilst on the move and you're not reloading it's missile carriage by hand. You'd need a crane.
Dunno whether the loader is a one by one job or if it can do 3 at a time. (never seen it demo'd)
I imagine it was simply out of ammo and unable to fire when it was struck.
It sounds like an excuse as to why it failed to shoot down the bomb that hit it (Pantsir is supposed to be able to do that).
It's possible it's true, but the fact they feel the need to add that bit of unnecessary info is telling.
How would they go about destroying one of these? Would they try to fire multiple rockets at it to overload it or some kind of electronic warfare to jam it and then take it out.
I don't know man.. it actually sounds like a quite possible and likely explanation to me. I mean the exchange lasted several hours and if you use 2 missiles on every target you can shoot down 6 objects with the them after which you have to reload.
Where have you gotten the info from that it was a bomb?
