    Russians in Syria, fresh pics (and vid)

    Russian troops in Syria, recent stuff, from mid-September to now, mostly in Deir Ezzor area








    I like that chopper with angry eyes lol Also, most of the infantry seem to be using different new gear, these days.

    Russia has, lately, ramped up its involvement on the ground. And casualties have risen accordingly:

    (Reuters) - An official document seen by Reuters shows that at least 131 Russian citizens died in Syria in the first nine months of this year, a number that relatives, friends and local officials say included private military contractors.

    The document, a death certificate issued by the Russian consulate in Damascus dated Oct. 4, 2017, does not say what the deceased was doing in Syria.

    But Reuters has established in interviews with the families and friends of some of the deceased and officials in their hometowns that the dead included Russian private military contractors killed while fighting alongside the forces of Moscow's ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

    The presence of the Russian contractors in Syria - and the casualties they are sustaining - is denied by Moscow, which wants to portray its military intervention in Syria as a successful peace mission with minimal losses.

    Who knew, they use fucking dirt bikes over there Although, thinking about it, it is a great way to get around, out in the desert.

    A very rare pic

    A fighter from the elite unit "Turan". A force more mysterious than even the notorious Wagner Group mercenary army. It's status is unclear, whether it is a legit unit in the Russian military or a semi-legal PMC (all PMCs are actually ILLegal in Russia, private armies such as Wagner, and possibly Turan, exist outside the law, only because Putin allows them to, as he needs them, for Ukraine, Syria, etc) I heard Turan is mainly made up of Muslims, guys from Caucasus and ex-Soviet Central Asia. Since they appeared in Syria, some months ago, ISIS been terrified of these guys, they slaughter the fuckers without mercy lol

    Russian, reportedly a Wagner guy, smoking hookah in Latakia


    Spetsnaz GRU guy, I can tell by the bat tattoo on his hand there

    The bat in Russia is the symbol of all Spetsnaz units, it is present in their flags, patches, medals, and tattoos.

    Soldier using a tablet


    Training local partners (Syrian Republican Guard elite troops, I believe)


    SOF in Palmyra


    Russian sub docked at the base in Tartus

    I must say, I don't like these new, light blue, submaribers' uniforms. They look like hospital nurses or something now lol
