Syrian helicopters were able to land and take off for the first time in Deir Ezzor since ISIS conducted its devastating offensive that cut the military base from the main city.

The helicopters were able to bring in fresh reinforcements to fight against the ISIS offensive, whilst also carrying away some injured soldiers from the embattled city.

With helicopters being able to land again, more reinforcements are expected to arrive in the coming hours and days.

It has not yet been revealed at this moment whether the helicopters are landing at the besieged military base, or whether the Syrian Army have secured a new landing area.

In the last four days since ISIS began its offensive on Deir Ezzor, the terrorist group has had over 200 fighters exterminated, whilst the Syrian Army lost between 50-75 soldiers according to conflicting reports.

If only the ASU-57 were still in production/service, the RuAF could attempt to land the SAA in a JiJiga ’78-style air-mech assault.

These might provide just the mobile artillery punch they need in Deir ez Zor!

There are other stuff they can air-drop, i.e. BMD-4

There’s a version with the T-90 125mm gun for use as a tank-killer… Ouch!

Thus, although not being satisfactory as building stopped after 24 deliveries, there is the 2S25 Sprut-SD which is also air-droppable…

But it was said that there were some points to improve on this pre-serie and full range production is to begin in 2018…
No more ASU-57 but seriously bad-ass stuff to replace, don’t you think?

Remember my friends, this is a Syrian war against invading terrorists. S.A.A. is fighting and S.A.A. will win. Syria has a right to be proudly independent.

The SAA have been fighting a successful defensive action in Deir Ezzor for years. If they had more munitions they could frighten away ISIS. As it is they kill them again and again.

Supplies are air dropped in a regular way, hopefully! Russia drops weaponry and UN drops foods’n’drugs!
Thus, I agree with Janjak : airdropping a serious armoured battalion in the desert and taking the attackers in a vice would be hell for the roaches.
Thus, what REALLY lacks is serious means to have close air support “en masse”…
