Joshua Landis: US will stay in Syria if others pay
2 "Hurras Al Din" fighters killed by unknown in S. Idlib
Saudi-Iranian consensus to support Sunni party in Iraq
Holy fuck... The rebels had a goddamn PaK 40... I mean, I remember when Syrian Government troops used a 122mm M-30 near Palmyra, but this is something else...
Edit: It's actually a 5cm PaK 38.
wikipedia lists the pak 40 as only 2 surviving in a museum in Damascus
Actually, you're right. I looked at it a bit harder and it turns out's a 5cm PaK 38. You cam tell from the bolts on each side of the gun shield that I failed to spot, unfortunately.

Didn't russia ship in a bunch to the 5th Corps?
They are old, but they are cheap, easy to maintain, reasonably accurate, and easy to move.
Beggars can't be choosers.
Why did jaish al Islam burn everything ghouta but rebels here are not?
It’s unbelievable how many weapons the rebels had, and this is just the southern front. They could have kept this going much longer. Hell, if the rebels in Aleppo had fought to the death, things might be very different today.
Weapons are pointless if you don't have the manpower or supplies to move them around. They would have used them already if they could.
No they wouldnt have been.The only thing they would have achieved is to prolong the battle for few more months
