Syrians shot down drone signed by Erdogan in Idlib

The Turkish army constantly keeps dozens of its strike and reconnaissance drones in the sky over the Idlib “de-escalation” zone, which really impede the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in freeing the territory from the “Barmalei”. And although almost daily reports are received that another Turkish drone was shot down in the Syrian sky, they do not become smaller than this over Syria.

For example, on March 3, 2020, on Steele M’s Twitter account, a photograph of a Turkish UAV shot down by a SAA appeared on which there is supposedly even an autograph of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Syrians shot down drone signed by Erdogan in Idlib

Some netizens noticed that in this case, the signature can be easily faked and, in general, write anything. Therefore, the information was regarded as the propaganda of the Syrians to raise the morale of the SAA.

Other users have noticed that Erdogan often signs drones, i.e. he has such a tradition. So to shoot down a drone with his autograph is quite real. Moreover, over the past three years, messages from Kurds and Libyans have already appeared on the Web that they shot down a drone with Erdogan's personal autograph. Now the Syrians have added to them.

Third users believe that the Syrians urgently need to strengthen their air defense. Since Turkish TV channels daily show how their drones "iron" CAA, incapacitating machinery and manpower of the Syrians.

It should be recalled that on March 2, 2020, the Turkish army first used a “swarm of drones” in Syria. This proves the technical capabilities of the Turks.

Necessary addthat in Turkey itself, Erdogan was repeatedly accused of wanting to cash in on the war. For example, the president’s son-in-law, Selcuk Bayraktar, is the owner of a company (Baykar Makina) producing these same drones.

    Syrians shot down drone signed by Erdogan in Idlib

    - Nice thing ... - you can scratch the scribble on a piece of plywood, and then say that it was supposedly once signed by Rafael, Michelangelo, Bosch, etc ...
    - And the fact that in their days there was no plywood ... - nobody cares ... - this "precedent" itself turns into solid "plywood" ...
    This is the kind of "plywood" that is being offered today for all to see ... to the respectable public ...

    - Yes, and a hundred and a thousand drones are not worth one living plane piloted by a pilot ...- It’s not even worth explaining anything about this ...
    - You can only add to this that ... that ... that it seems that a super technically advanced Turkey, equipped with highly intelligent electronic weapons, is fighting against savages armed with spears and bows ... - But what else can you do? think ??? - When simple, controlled drones fly from someone else’s territory (and managed from the same - someone’s territory) they easily perform combat missions and at the same time save the living people who they control from mortal danger .., i.e. - nothing threatens the lives of those people ... - Well, you can only be glad for these people ... - for the Turks in this situation ...
    - And what prevents our Russian valiant armed forces in the same way ... - send the same drones to destroy gangs of barmalei ??? - Well, maybe they will bring down some ... - it’s not very pity ... - after all, not living people will die ... - Yes, and many times cheaper than losing an expensive military plane or helicopter ...
    - And they are not ... in Russia ... - or there is, but everything is in the "stage of development", in the "stage of setting up a release", in the stage of "demo clips", etc. ... - And the Turks are nothing demonstrate ... - they just use them and fight with them ... - And these drones have already destroyed the Syrian positions so much and have destroyed so much military equipment that it seemed to no one ...
    - Of course ... - it’s easier to rejoice with all your urine over the downed enemy drone, but while you are rejoicing ... already 20 such drones will arrive and there will be no more rejoicing ...
    - In general, it is not clear ... - who is sitting with us in the General Staff ... - Some kind of military exercises were shown all year around the military districts ... - and so bravely reported and demonstrated ...
    - But something does not really believe in the bravura of all this ... - The reality in Syria shows everything somehow differently ...

      And you, a girl, were there and saw 20 UAVs

      ... the Syrian positions were demolished and so many military equipment was destroyed that nobody seemed to see much ...

      - Or do you just believe one media more than the other? And here is what you

      In general, it is not clear ... - who is sitting there in the General Staff ...

      - that's for sure. And it's not your business to understand what is there and how ... Wait a couple of days and

      Reality in Syria will demonstrate everything differently ...

        And you, the girl, were there and saw how 20 UAVs "smashed the Syrian positions and destroyed so much military equipment that it seemed to no one ..." or do you just believe some media more than others?

        - This is a fact ... a fact ... a fact that all parties recognized ...- which absolutely everyone recognizes ...
        - Ah ... if you want to blame me for everything ... and not the General Staff, it would be better for you; what is it with Vysotsky ... "We will write to ... SPORTLOTO" ... - You can go there again ... since the General Staff is not in business ...

        ... how 20 UAVs "smashed the Syrian positions

        - Where did you get the number "20" ... - personally, I did not indicate it anywhere ... - the number "123" flashes here all the time, but personally I ... - and here it is not in business ...
        - But for you personally:

        Turkey used its Turkish Bayraktar-TB and Anka-S unmanned systems. The Anka, which debuted on the battlefield in the SAR, is a heavier vehicle and can carry almost three times the payload than the Bayraktar already seen in Libya. These UAVs use “micro-ammunition” - 70- and 160-mm MAM-C and MAM-L missiles weighing 6,35 and 22 kg, respectively.
        Turkey, along with China, is a world leader in the production of armed drones. ” However, their range is a little over 150 km due to the limited range of the UAV controls.

        "Nevertheless, there are no such UAVs in the active forces in Russia."

        Turkey used a local Koral radio jamming system to reduce the effectiveness of Syrian air defense radars. The “Coral”, which has a range of 200 km, is equipped with equipment designed to detect and classify enemy weapon systems, and also carries electronic warfare equipment on board for “jamming”, deceiving and reloading the enemy’s air defense.

        - But where was our so-called REP ??? - This is already a question ... - It is to the General Staff ...
        - You can, of course, argue about the size of the CAA's losses; but even "averaged", "sparing data" .. which simply cannot be hidden ... - here they are:

        ... dozens of destroyed T-55, T-62 and T-72 tanks, BMP-1 armored vehicles, the Pantsir-S1 short-range air defense system and the Shilka ZSU-23, as well as 2C1 and 2C3 self-propelled howitzers,

        - etc...

          You, of course, excuse my directness, but! You write such nonsense humanitarian!
          Who wrote this?

          - Of course ... - it’s easier to rejoice with all your urine over the downed enemy drone, but while you are rejoicing ... already 20 such drones will arrive and there will be no more rejoicing ...

          Explain for a long time, so read other authors in Zen, now only the lazy one has not been noted on this topic. Everything is there.

    And what difference does it sign or not.
    Important - the Turks bring down Syrian planes, and the Syrians are just drones.

    Despite the S-300, the closure of the sky and other things.

    All this fake is just another. The inscription was obviously lovingly and quite professionally written on the wreckage. For a long time, probably, they were looking for a "writer" with a good, almost calligraphic handwriting.

    Syrians shot down

    - Do they consider this an achievement? Let the Syrians calculate how much manpower and equipment these drones destroyed, while not a single Turkish pilot died. And the drones have paid for themselves, they will build more.
