Russian military advisors were pictured on Thursday training hundreds of Syrian Army recruits in the Qalamoun mountains, as part of the first stage of the rebuilding process.

Engineering and infantry units were the group’s primarily photographed in rural Damascus on Thursday, while other training sessions occurred in different regions of Syria.

With tens of thousands of casualties as a result of this war, the Syrian Arab Army is in dire need to be rebuilt in order to survive the years after the conflict concludes.

Glad to know that there is a long perspective that looks further than the next campaign. And that it is not just getting new or replaced equipment.
p.s.AFAIR The process of rebuilding has started before the summer of 2016 and was the basis of the last 7 months successes. Logistics and repair units were remodeled and trained. Some fighting units were trained and got more modern equipment. There was a SouthFront film about it.

Yes. You can read a full article, in several languages, writen by Col. Valentin Vasilescu in Voltairenet.org too. Very good. And, above all showing to some “impatient” reader’s of AMN the full reasons why SAArmy sometimes progress so slowly in the various battlefields !
No matter what the short setbacks, in the end they always progress like nowadays in the Palmira front, for instance….
But the main problem being lack of “spares” ! I mean human spares…..

=> I mean human spares….. => Human resources = Menschenmaterial. In older German army language. – Sorry You are wrong – Christian – I assume that is Your first name – I much admire the care of the Syrian commanders with the life and health of their men. Days, weeks and months do not matter. Keeping the herd together with little loses is IMHO always the better choice. No matter how many human spares You have. Maybe compare the tactics to those of Henrici?

Serious distribution of at least Level III+ body armour plates + carriers would also greatly minimise casualties. I don’t know if Russians have a Level III helmet or if they’re limited to level IIIA (IIIA stops pistol rounds but even a M1carbine goes through, Level III stops up to .308NATO/7.62ru FMJ @838m/s and AK-47/M-16 point blank)

Yes all that minimizes casualties is on every Syrian mother’s wish list. No matter whether is is yesterdays helmet model.
