I do not think so. NERA requires very specific materials in specific arrangements. Many will like to believe that Soviet tech is monkey grade but it was all very highly engineered and mathematically precise. Can NII Stalii provide a blueeprint for the Syrians? Yes. Can the Syrians produce it? No.

I would have thought that fabricating BDD or Enigma style blocks would be within their capability. Making good HSS is not, but that can be imported as plate and cut to size locally.

Yup. just import the old armour pieces form Russia and weld them on the local T-62 and -55. same with Kontakt blocks. the mounting points should be doable locally in Syria and then put imported kontakt boxes on these. Even kontakt-1 would be great help against all the RPGs in use.

Might not be so effective against any of the newer RPG warheads or disposable RPG types that could be in use.  But at least it would add resistance to the older stuff anyway.

Hence the case for NERA.

So IAF conducts airstrikes in Syria against some Iranian targets. 12 targets are ultimately destroyed. Syria responds by fucking yeeting an S-200 missile at Cyprus.
S-300 operators still probably chewing on sticks.

Royal Marines have boarded an oil tanker on its way to Syria thought to be breaching EU sanctions, the government of Gibraltar has said.

Authorities said there was reason to believe the ship, called the Grace 1, was carrying crude oil to the Baniyas Refinery in Syria.

The refinery is subject to European Union sanctions against Syria, the chief minister of the government said.

Fabian Picardo commended the bravery of the marines who detained the ship.

"Be assured that Gibraltar remains safe, secure and committed to the international, rules-based, legal order," he said, thanking the police, customs and port authorities for their involvement in detaining the ship.

'Firm action' praised

Gibraltar port and law enforcement agencies detained the super tanker and its cargo on Thursday morning with the help of the marines.

The BBC has been told a team of about 20 marines, from 42 Commando, were flown from the UK to Gibraltar to help seize the tanker, at the request of the Gibraltar government.

A defence source described it as a "relatively benign operation" without major incident.

Mr Picardo said he had written to the presidents of the European Commission and European Council to give details of the sanctions that have been enforced.

The Baniyas refinery, in the Syrian Mediterranean port town of Tartous, is a subsidiary of the General Corporation for Refining and Distribution of Petroleum Products, a section of the Syrian ministry of petroleum.

The EU says the facility therefore provides financial support the Syrian government, which is subject to sanctions because of its repression of civilians since the start of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad in 2011.

The refinery has been subject to EU sanctions since 2014.

A spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said she welcomed the "firm action" by the Gibraltarian authorities.

It was certainly more accurate then having Tu22Ms dropping sticks of unguided bombs through sheet overcast.

That's what you get when you start jamming the signals of a non-hostile actor.
Russia's EW in Syria may be directed at terrorists, but it disrupts other activities as well, and they are unable to direct their efforts, which suggests their systems are more reliant on crude power over accurate targeting.

So, since Israel bombing targets in Syria is "non-hostile actor",  i wish our Gov finally deliver some non-hostile bombings on West-sponsored training camps in Western Ukraine. In non-hostile manner, of course.

     Have Germans explained poor accuracy of their weapons hitting London by UK air defence disrupting targeting?

Israel is non-hostile to Russia. Russia sent an armed force in the middle of an Israeli-Iranian conflict, but with the sole declared purpose of helping the SAA defeat the various opposition groups. Therefore it should not intervene.

Why would they do that?

 

Unlike Syria, Russia doesn't have troops in Ukraine. All those men and women fighting the Fascists are local patriots with weapons from local stocks. Didn't you get the memo comrade?

Let me remind you Russian forces, as well as Iranian ones, are in Syria on invitation of legitimate Syria Gov (unlike forces of US, Israel and other parties ). And yes, unfortunately there are no Russian troops in Ukraine (otherwise pro-Ukrainians would not dare their shillings - as Crimea example clearly demonstrate).
     By the way note Russia is in good relations with Israel (probably better relations than with Iran) and it is not in Russian interests to protect Iranian forces from Israel as Iran is strong regional competitor to Russia for last thousand years.  Iranians are great nation and could defend themselves. All i want is Russian Gov learning Israeli and Iranian (and US) best practices in being decisive in targeting hostile parties and locations wherever they are.

Israel does not need an invitation because there are already internationally accepted treaties that permit it to operate militarily in Syria.

What treaty did Israel sign with Syria that allows Israel to bomb Syria without warning?
