Russia in Syria






It was fired at ISIS positions in the mountains in the north-east of Latakia, Syria's main port city.
The weapon – also known as the TOS-1A – is thought to be suited to mountain areas and other confined environments such as bunkers and tunnels.

Temperatures soar to a staggering 1,000 degrees Celsius at the epicentre of the explosion – burning out atmospheric oxygen and rupturing the lungs of the victims.

A report by the CIA in 1993 warned: "The effect of an FAE [fuel-air explosive] explosion within confined spaces is immense...those near the ignition point are obliterated."

One journalist who has witnessed the use of the Blazing Sun missile launcher said: "The results are devastating. Not only is the explosion significantly longer and the shockwave significantly hotter and stronger than a conventional warhead, but all the oxygen in the near vicinity is also consumed, creating a partial vacuum."
It was first used during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1988 but only made its public debut during the Second Chechen War in 1999.

Russia does not f**k around.

There is no war to end all wars.

Indeed... and I couldn't think of a better group of (intended) assholes to be on the receiving end.

Interesting that they're using weapons outlawed by the Geneva and Hague conventions.  Fuel-air along with napalm is on the blacklist along with other asphyxiating weapons.

Not MLRS but interesting footage nevertheless.


It's giving me flashbacks to Fallujah Domination on Arma 2. Just need a low flying SU-25 too.

Anyone who's played Wargame Airland-battle or Red Dragon will know the buritano well, it's devastating, never realised how powerful it was in real life though that is a scary ass weapon!

Any man that can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still know where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

Some crazy new footage out of Syria of a Su-34 hammering Aleppo with cluster bombs. Particularly 0:29 and onward.
