BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The Syrian military may purchase a Belarusian missile system to replace their current Russian Grad rockets, Avia.Pro reported on Wednesday.

According to the publication, the Syrian military may acquire the Belarusian Flute system, which they claim will be an upgrade from their current Grads.

“Syrian military experts are actively discussing the possibility of acquiring a large batch of Belarusian Flute multiple launch rocket systems, intending to replace the Russian Grad multiple-launch rocket systems with them,” Avia.Pro said.

“According to a number of sources, in comparison with Grad, Belarusian Flutes have a much larger range and they are capable of simultaneously firing up to 80 rockets,” they continued.

The publication said that the Belarusian Flute system will allow the Syrian military to fire 80 missiles per minute at any target, while covering a large area.

“Belarusian MLRS can launch 80 missiles at a target in a minute, covering a huge area. To combat jihadists, this weapon is simply indispensable – in comparison with them, the Grad seems to be a joke, ”the publication says.

The Syrian Army has been operating the Grad missile system for several years now; however, they have also developed their own MLRS launcher, which they have dubbed the ‘Golan’.

The SAA must bring the Iranian air-defense missile systems AND radars which are becoming much feared by the Enemy. These systems made by Iran are completely independent of Russia or Western sanctions and liabilities and restrictions and limitations.

I hope SAA does not run away and leave this system under terrorists hands.

The SAA of 2020 is not the same as the SAA of 2011 and 2012 … this is a a military force has been a constant warfare for nearly ten years during which time it has become double the size of the SAA of 2012 and one of the best armies in the world due to sheer war experience, all they are lacking is advanced weaponry which if they had would allow them to absolutely totally destroy ISIS terrorists, salafist terrorists, wahahhahahahabi terrorists, Turkish terrorists, MeriKKKan / Pigland terrorists, Brishit terrorists, and zionist -mafia terrorists.
