The Americans intend to cut the Russians in Syria on the BMP M2 "Bradley"

The confrontation between the Russian and American military in Syria is growing. Following the "road wars" the "arms race" begins there. Instead of matching policy de-escalation of tensions, the United States is deploying "bigger armored vehicles" on the Syrian roads.

A few weeks ago in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, there was a serious traffic accident, which we have already discussed in detail. told... US armored vehicles MRAP tried to cut the Russian military convoy. The domestic BTR-82A did not stop and rammed a light armored car of the US Army. As a result, several US military personnel suffered concussions. Most importantly, their injuries were deemed to have been sustained as a result of a "clash".

Soon, the Israeli edition of Israel Defense came out with a publication hinting that Russian soldiers might "pay" like "Wagnerians" in February 2018, trying to take control of the oil field in the province of Deir ez-Zor along Hisham. The general situation in Syria and the Middle East is such that the Americans and Russians do not need to fight directly with each other, no matter how much some Israeli journalists and all-knowing "military experts" would like. However, the pre-election battles in the United States itself may force each of the warring parties to encourage their military in the SAR to aggravate relations with Moscow on the eve of November 3 in order to raise a patriotic intoxication.

Apparently, the Americans are preparing to intensify the "road war". It is reported about the transfer by the Pentagon to Syria of six BMP M2 "Bradley". It is a tracked infantry fighting vehicle with a combat mass of over 20 tons and a crew of three, capable of carrying up to six infantrymen. Armed with "Bradley" 25-mm automatic cannon, machine gun and ATGM "Tou". You can't ram this car so easily. For comparison, the BTR-82A weighs only 16 tons. The American press commented on the dispatch of armored vehicles as follows:

These actions and reinforcements are a clear signal for Russia to adhere to the processes of mutual conflict resolution, and for Russia and other parties to avoid unprofessional, unsafe and provocative actions in northeastern Syria.

That is, no one really hides the fact that next time Russian convoys will cut off the M2 Bradley BMP. Russian contingent in Syria heavy technique does not have, since the participation of the Ministry of Defense in the campaign is mainly limited to strikes by the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Iskander-M OTRK on the positions of the militants. Thus, Moscow faces a difficult choice: either to allow the Americans to illegally clamp down and stop our convoys, or to transfer heavier armored vehicles to the SAR to neutralize the resulting overweight on the roads from the Pentagon.

Most likely, we should expect the An-124 Ruslan flight to Syria, which will transport several Kurganets-25 BMP units to Khmeimim, or even heavier ones, for example, T-90M tanks. The T-14 "Armata" seems to be rolling around in Syria.

        Let the Syrian authorities decide what is more important: Russian tanks on the asphalt or the lawlessness waged on the roads by the American invaders.

    It means that the tank will ram the barn for delirium, by the way, a strike on the side will not save delirium, during the Great Patriotic War the T-34s were rammed quite successfully by Tigresses and Panthers;) it will deliriously on its side or upside down;)

      According to the article, it seems that the period of crush in Syria ended with our victory, then the transition to a new level (by the type of games). what path the expansion will take, it is already necessary to keep the entire set of means at the ready, from ground to airborne ... It becomes necessary for the actions of patrols with constant escort and UAV reconnaissance ... The game can get out of control on the ground with all the consequences ...
      Bubasa. There is no need to pass off an obvious invention for reality, the T-34 could not knock over the Tiger with a ram, even the Panther, the weight categories are different. There were cases of ramming T-3 or self-propelled guns of the Germans in the first half of the Second World War, but even then it did not lead to destruction, temporary incapacitation, and only ...

    I remember the Russian convoy was accompanied by two helicopters, one of which was the Mi-24. I don't think that BMP Bradley will become a big problem for the Mi-24, Mi-35, and even the Mi-8 in the assault version. If the Yankees want war, they will get it, but they are unlikely to be happy about it. The United States fears North Korea, with its dozen nuclear warheads. To bully the Russian Federation, which has thousands of such ammunition, is, to put it mildly, crazy.
