BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – Much of the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces have reportedly arrived in the northern countryside of Hama, today, after a long deployment in east Aleppo.

According to Al-Masdar’s Yusha Yuseef, most of the Tiger Forces arrived in northern Hama this morning after completing the battle of Deir Hafer.

The Tiger Forces will be tasked with leading the counter-offensive in the northern countryside of Hama against Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their jihadist allies.

Preliminary reports from northern Hama indicate that the Syrian Arab Army is advancing at Khattab; however, it is still too early to tell if they will seize this village.

Syria needs more tigers. These heroes need to take up new recruits and train them in battle. The more of these fearless warriors the better.

There is AFAIK coverage on Southfront. Well equipped, supplied and from one national sub-group with a brilliant leader (soldier and diplomat).

“The more of these fearless warriors the better.”
=> Only if ‘fearless warriors’ are on the side of the roaches! The last thing ANY hard hitting unit needs is the profile you describe. This is good for movies and journos, in reality, such profiles are nothing else than cannon-fodder.

thats why the russians created the 5 legion. the tiger forces cant be on two places in the same time. The result is best seeing in Palmira which was liberated without the tiger forces. We all need to take in acount that the war last more then 6 years.even USA can hold its top straigth for such a long period. Thanks to the russian air superiority and ground advisers and plenty of logistic SAA can hold its ground and repl the invaders(from 80 countries!!)

Turkey helped IS again. They supplied Qaeda with heavy ordnance on the pretense they are moderate. Then these moderates attacked and elite forces had to be withdrawn from The IS front.

More SAA regulars need to be trained and equipped up to Tiger standards or near, that’s for sure. Two many second tier SAA and NDF infantry gets suprised, overrun or fleeing too easily.

More likely You get more like 5th legion. https://southfront.org/1000-servicemen-of-5th-legion-completed-training-in-syria-photos/

Several reasons make the Tiger forces strong. Not all can be copied IMHO. https://southfront.org/syrian-armys-tiger-forces-history-and-capabilities/

Upgrading is also a financial problem. Syria is drained.

Tiger forces are doing very well. At the same time, SAA has the highest hand against all kinds of rebels in terms of firepower and troops accounts. Also, SAA has lots of strong allies especially the Russians/ The issue is the moral and motivations: they are low among a good amount of soldiers. This is the real issue IMHO. something should be done…

How elite is that? Even when you look at the pic, you see some wear hat, some don’t. Some has beard, some not. Not even wearing same camuflage. Where is the discipline?
