Air Base Khmeimim


19 combat aircrafts were transferred to the airbase "Khmeimim"

The number of Russian videoconferencing stations in Syria has significantly decreased.

Relatively recently at the Russian military airbase "Khmeimim", located in the Syrian province of Latakia, there were more than three dozen military aircraft, however, taking into account satellite images dated the beginning of this month, the strength of the VCS group in the Arab Republic has significantly decreased.

On satellite images, experts were able to detect 19 combat aircraft, including:

  • 4 multi-purpose fighter Su-35;
  • 6 Su-34 fighter-bombers;
  • 9 front-line bomber Su-24.

Experts drew attention to the fact that the airbase "Khmeimim" completely lacks the means of assault aviation, which may well mean that the Russian military security services will no longer take an active part in striking the positions of the militants, but will limit themselves to single strikes and provide cover for the troops of the Syrian government forces.

It should be clarified that at the moment serious problems in Syria can be created by Turkey, which pulled into the province of Idlib heavy armored vehicles and air defense means, threatening to destroy any means of combat aviation that threaten Turkish soldiers.
