It's insane to think how far removed we are from this conflict, but with technology it's so close.

I was showing some of this footage to my girlfriend and she said it was some of the scariest stuff she's ever seen. I said imagine the eastern front in '44 with GoPros it would completely have changed the perception of the population about what was happening out there.

Women are more sensitive. My wife also was shocked with the images. But if you think that the destroyed city can be yours, I think we should also horrify.

Arrow Re: HD combat in Syria

The footage posted by DRG is quite remarkable in that we may glimpse at how the Syrians are using their tanks in certain urban environments as assault guns, hitting any possible opposing force's firing position. Unlike American crews where roof top sniper teams over watch advancing armor, the Syrians blast away at any suspected firing position. The Israelis use massed artillery fires, destroying structures in the path of advancing infantry followed by armor making it easier for the infantry to locate, identify and kill ATGM teams. Here in these few videos, we have Syrians using tanks similar to how Israelis use artillery fires (to destroy firing positions) to clear path for infantry to dismount and enter the fight.

The Syrian tactic is faster than sniper over watch teams, less destructive while requiring less coordination with artillery, than the Israelis approach, and at the least, is a best match given apparent Syrian capabilities.

The T-72 tank crews are divided between the Defense Companies and the 4th Armor Division; both of these organizations are near exclusively populated by the regime’s Alawite minority, the sect of Bashar al-Assad, confirming loyalty throughout the ranks from officer to enlisted. Further, it is erroneous to say the tank crews in these videos demonstrate poor urban or weak combined arms tactics, when in fact, these two units are extensively Soviet trained in combined arms doctrine and routinely trained with Russian forces in joint exercises (before the civil war.) They know what they are doing, although through our lenses, it may not appear to be the case.

I'm glad that the Russians are involved in this. Certainly a thorn in the side of the CIA,Mossad,and anybody else involved in the funding of the fools trying to destroy a sovereign nation.

Now the Syrians can maybe get country back.
