The elite Tiger Forces Division of the Syrian Arab Army represents one of the most effective formations available to the pro-government alliance in the ongoing Syrian War. The formation was born out of a special requirement by the Syrian Army for a dedicated offensive detachment comprised of highly-motivated, well-trained and well-armed soldiers. Indeed, when the formation was raised, it came during a time when the Syrian High Command was restructuring its entire order of battle in order to properly adapt to the semi-asymmetrical nature of the terrorist insurgency plaguing Syria. The repeated success of the Tiger Forces in various battles throughout Syria since 2013 has left many military analysts wondering what makes the formation so effective in battle.

This information video suggest thats – more so than just the elite status of its individual soldiers and commanders – the success of the Tiger Forces can be found in unique structure it appears to employ and the operational doctrine it has been observed to use time and time again.

1,000 men who largely fight for the oil fields?! Puhlease. Thanks for your work against ISIS, mostly for the elite Ba’athists to get the oil fields quickly, but you ain’t s**t compared to the YPG and should unite with the Syrian people (SDF) now to defend your country against Israel and Turkey.

Unfortunately your comment bares no truth.
Tiger forces fought on all volatile and static fronts. Releasing the tight on Aleppo prison as well as breaking the siege of Kweiris AB. They’d been deployed to Homs, Hama, Palmyra and even on the fringes of Idleb. But only while freeing East-Aleppo from islamist’s rule last year, they’d sprang into world-publics eye of recognition.
They’re a formidable force of stability to constitutional Syria.
