Third full-fledged Russian military base appears in Syria

The airport in the city of Al-Qamishli in the Syrian province of Hasakah has accumulated a large number of various Russian military equipment... This may indicate that a third full-fledged Russian military base is emerging in Syria (after Khmeimim and Tartus), although it has not yet been legally formalized.

Photos from this object appeared on the web. The pictures show Su-35 fighters, Mi-8 and Ka-52 helicopters, as well as several radars - 48Ya6-K1 "Podlet" and R-18-2 "Tiksi-3", which should be discussed in more detail.

48Ya6-K1 "Podlet" is a universal mobile solid-state three-coordinate radar with a phased array of all-round visibility and detection of air targets at low and extremely low altitudes in a difficult jamming environment. The radar is designed to issue target designation for the S-300, S-400 and other air defense systems.

R-18-2 "Tiksi-3" - a mobile two-coordinate radar with a circular view of the meter wave range. This is a modernized version of the Soviet P-18 Terek radar, designed for the timely detection and tracking of air objects, including stealth, within the visibility zone, determining nationality and issuing their coordinates (range, azimuth) to consumers of information about the air situation ...

It should be noted that Al-Qamishli is located near the Turkish border, and emergence The Russian military at the local airport in November this year is associated with an attempt by Moscow to send an understandable signal to Ankara - there is no need to carry out another Turkish invasion of the SAR.

    A dangerous place. A reinforced battalion will be required to provide protection and defense. The only highway, Around the gangs of various disloyalists, and other people's special forces are hanging around. The proximity of the Turkish border. But engineering structures, shelters are not visible. On the western bank of the Euphrates River, the Americans will not be, and on the eastern bank they will allow others to do what they want, with the exception of the situation around the oil fields, which Russia called the work of "robbers" ... Navvar Saban, a military analyst at the Omran Center for Strategic Studies in Istanbul, said that if the move was conceived by Moscow to demonstrate its strength, then the target audience is clearly not Washington.
    The base is likely to be used to facilitate joint Russian-Turkish patrols in the area, which began in northeastern Syria on November 1, Saban said.

    on the one hand it's a good thing, a projection of strength. but it doesn't look like a victory in the region and a withdrawal of troops.

      And final victories do not exist in principle. Nazi Germany was defeated over 70 years ago. And Nazism and Fascism are alive, alive. They even spread all over the world.
