Sivkov: Hitting 400 Tomahawks at Khmeimim at once would restore US hegemonic status

Konstantin Sivkov, a military political expert and corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Missile and Artillery Sciences, believes that the United States could oust Russia from Syria with a powerful missile strike, but Washington is embarrassed by Moscow’s nuclear arsenal. At the same time, he called the "vital necessity" for Russia to acquire an aircraft carrier fleet as the main conclusion from the war in Syria.

Sivkov expressed his conclusions in an article published in the publication "Military Industrial Courier". According to Sivkov’s findings, the Russian state should have an airline comparable to Aeroflot, which would be fully equipped with products exclusively from the domestic aviation industry. In addition, Russia must have a large number of different civil courts.

The USA could knock out the Russian Aerospace Forces from Syria by hitting 300–400 Tomahawks at the Khmeimim base and thereby restore their shaky status of world hegemon, for the sake of which they started the whole “Arab spring”, the nuclear potential of our country prevented

- wrote Sivkov.

Sivkov believes that nuclear weapons also operate in low-intensity conflicts. It restrains a potential adversary from direct military intervention.

Lesson 21: Russia should have a mobilization reserve of civilian vessels, which would make it possible to increase the carrying capacity of the transport fleet of the Russian Navy to the required volumes in the required time frame. The same is with aviation, where the situation is even worse. <...> Therefore, the 22nd lesson of the Syrian war is that Russia should have a state-owned airline of the scale of Aeroflot or S7, equipped with only domestically produced aircraft

- sure Sivkov.

Sivkov drew attention to other problems, noting what lessons Russia should learn from the war in Syria. He also touched on issues of informational, ideological, economic and other types of confrontation. After all, the war in Syria has provided great material for analysis and study.

    Sivkov himself stated that upon the first strike of at least one cruise missile at our base, the CARRIERS will be DESTROYED! And here already 400? And the face does not crack so DREAM?
    1. Don’t worry, steelworker, they just don’t have so many tomahawks.

    - Some fragments and scraps of reasoning ...

    The United States could knock out the Russian Air Force from Syria by hitting 300-400 Tomahawks at the Khmeimim base and thereby restore its shaky world hegemonic status

    - Why are there so many Tomahawks ... and why are there Tomahawks at all ... - The Americans could destroy our base with simple aviation, bombs and missiles ... - Yes, even Turkish aviation can do it ... - Who is there and how can there protect her ??? - In fact, there is no cover there ... - And with the S-400 Russia is bluffing, as always ...
    - And where does the nuclear weapons ...- Russia still does not engage in such a war ... using nuclear weapons ...

    Russia should have a mobilization reserve of civilian fleet vessels, which would guarantee to increase the carrying capacity of the transport fleet of the Russian Navy to the required volumes in a timely manner.

    - But where will Russia take this fleet ... - From the Zvezda shipyard, or what ??? - Hahah ... - Or will it charter from someone ??? - For transportation of strategic military cargo by foreign ships ??? - All this is very risky ... - Yes, and where to lay the route ... - there are only enemies around, including China ...

      Unfortunately, the current Russian leadership has clearly forgotten this proverb, sending its troops to a foreign country to save the bloody local dictator. And now, when after many years of war, the destruction of the country and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Syrian citizens, it turns out that the goal has not been achieved, the Russian army looks sorry even against the backdrop of the Turks.

        Assad, in fact, is the whitest and most furry among the leaders of the Arab world. The only problem is that he is a representative of the Alawite minority (30%), the rest are Sunni (70%) or Kurds. As I was told by one Syrian Kurd who came to Germany in the 80s, the whole Syrian army consisted and consists of Alawites, such a caste system has been formed since the time of Assad the Elder.

          Among the leaders of the Arab world there are no white and fluffy ones and never have been - the specifics are not the same, this is not a thread for Luxembourg and Liechtenstein wink
          And the problem of national-religious relations in Syria has always existed, and the current armed conflict, in which everyone is fighting against everyone, is only an extreme aggravation of this problem. Indeed, the Alawite minority, long humiliated and despised by all other ethnic and confessional groups in the Syrian population, have occupied key positions in the army and administrative bodies of the country since the French mandate. The French deliberately supported and promoted these outcasts, created from them native allies to counterbalance other, often hostile, aborigines - the old principle of "Divide and rule" in action.
          Of course, having seized power and having real power, the Alawites crushed all other Syrians, primarily the Sunni majority, by the most barbaric methods. Kurds were also citizens of some third grade, as were Christians, Druze, etc.
          Having seized power as a result of an armed coup, the father of the present Assad has repeatedly resorted to armed suppression of popular unrest, killing his compatriots with tens of thousands, his little son only continues family traditions, and the Russian leadership actively contributes to this. That is the reality ...

    No, guys, Russia cannot resist conventional weapons in front of this pack of ferocious dogs, so we, against our will, will have to use TNW, if not strategic, and we have no other choice. But American strategic analysts are already inventing new types of pressure on their opponents without using any weapons, and such an example for you is a fake coronavirus, and that they should spray the plague virus or Ebola virus over the same China from a regular scheduled passenger plane, or even something more terrible - all living things will die out, the industry will remain, and after a while the land can be reclaimed ... And it is quite possible that this crown was made on purpose to test the weakness of America's enemies before a big biological war, and only this disgusting USA enough, and they have thoroughly studied the "wind rose" over a potential enemy, so this option should not be discounted.

    Unlike Sivkov, the Americans well remember that in the south the MiG-31 with Daggers is on duty. At the first strike, they quickly organize so that the US strike group will be left without an aircraft carrier, cruisers and destroyers. For this, these MiGs are on duty precisely in the south. And nuclear weapons in this case are not needed. Just after this exchange of blows it will be possible to present an ultimatum on their own terms. Trump is not so stupid to get involved in this adventure. And in Syria, ours are not unarmed. There are anti-ship complexes Bastion. They are not in Khmeimim and are very mobile .. They still need to be found in order to try to destroy. In 2016, they were tested on ISIS. Well done. They can work on land targets.
    And the Americans are mentally unprepared for large simultaneous losses. If several large ships are destroyed at once, the president will not stay long.

    Kuzi's trip to the shores of Syria showed the complete failure and uselessness of the Russian carrier-based aircraft.

    With the cost of one aircraft carrier at $ 10 billion, the VKS can buy 10 combat regiments (240 units) of the latest Su-57 (with the declared price of $ 40 million per aircraft) for this money.
