Syria: Army Begins Using New Russian Weapons

Loyalist forces in Syria have started using new types of ground and air weapons supplied by Russia, Reuters reported Sept 17, citing an unnamed military source. Satellite imagery from Sept. 15 obtained by Stratfor shows that several large concrete aprons that were previously under construction have been completed. A large amount of Russian military equipment has also arrived at the airfield. A battalion-sized Russian contingent now appears to be located at the base, along with artillery and attack helicopter support. Several large Russian transport aircraft are also visible on the runway and on the nearby ramps.
