RETIRED SYRIAN PILOTS FLYING SUKHOIS FOR IRAQ

 

The Iraqi government has wasted no time asserting its air supremacy by purchasing close to 90 Sukhoi-25 Fencers multi-role bombers from the Russian Federation and Belarus.  But who is going to pilot the jets?  Enter 400 retired Syrian Air Force pilots trained to fly Sukhois who will complement a few Iranians.  SyrPer has learned that the Iraqi government is paying top dollar for these experienced pilots whose role will be to provide air cover for advancing Iraqi army forces and devastating fire power against the hordes of U.S.-sponsored, -funded and -trained ISIS terrorists infesting brotherly Iraq.  I have been informed that even active-duty Syrian pilots will be involved in orienting the retired officers to the topography and geography of Iraq.

Don’t believe any story about U.S. drones flying in Iraqi air space to provide Intel for the Iraqi armed forces.  The Syrian government has already warned Mr. Al-Maliki that those drones will be used to improve the military position of ISIS before any useful information will be forwarded to Iraqi Army HQ.

We have no details about how much Iraq is paying for its new pilots, but, it must be quite a sum and the obligations are extremely urgent and important.

The U.S., tied to its bankrupt relationship with the Zionist Khazar Apartheid Entity, is unable to play anything but a negative role in the evolution of this attack on the sovereignty and dignity of the Iraqi Republic.

We at SyrPer are proud to know that experienced Syrian pilots are dominating the air over the Land of the Two Great Rivers and that their role will be decisive in blunting the effects of the NATO re-invasion of independent, sovereign Iraq.

Trying to verify if it was SU-25 Frogfoots or SU-24 Fencers. The story says SU-25 Fencers?? The SU24 is like the USA’s F-111. Very fast fighter bomber with swept wings. The SU25 is more like the USA A-10 ground attack plane. The Frogfoot is much faster than the A-10.

Either plane can make short work of ISIS as long as the USA does not provide good AA missiles. These Russian planes are great because they are not delicate like USA planes.

Looks like the 24 swing wing based on this report.

given they will probably be doing strategic bombing versus air support for troops this makes sense.

hey ziad, again

so could we say that Syria did not strike into Iraq, rather Syrian pilots flying Iraqing planes flew over Iraq?

This makes sense rather then the narrative Kerry is passing off of Syrian bombing another country, in this case Iraq
I saw the news that iraq had got planes from Iran also- have it saved somewhere plus another article showing Iraq military hardware they had no planes of any kind, helicopters yes
but no planes

as for the drones overflying Iraq? The armed drones courtesy of the US. They are supporting ISIS and will threaten Iraqis fighting the thugs on the ground

No, Penny. The first of the Russhan Sukhois arrived today, according to different news outlets. If SAAF didn’t light up the people in that town, it had to be US drones. SAAF is meticulous in its operations, and wouldn’t just bomb a market, bank and – – sorry, I forgot what else – – just to kill something. The Videogame Warriors don’t care, so long as they expend their ordinance, and they’ll just deny it anyway.

Sorry, Penny. As of December of ’12 they had about a dozen helicopters, a half dozen or so recon/observation planes (steam, not jets), and only one or two jets that could carry ordinance, but were not well suited to intense counter insurgency work. Their missile stock was almost nonexistent, with the highest number of missiles being 19 Hellfires. They had no aircraft for air defense, with some F16IQs promised in 2016. I don’t think that the IqAF inventory changed much between then and now, except that all of their missiles had been expended. France has owed Iraq 16 Mirage F1s… Read more »

Anonymous, good point indeed. On another side comment, any bomber or fighter jets right now can help shift the balance for Iraq, ISIS is vulnerable but for that bombing the hell out of their forces gathering is a must, not to mention weapons trafficking from Turkey, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. I am thrilled Iraq can get its hands on some planes right now with experienced SAAF retired pilots, lucky some Iranians retired pilots could join in as well.

I hadn’t known that they were also getting MiG 29s. Do you know if Syria is getting any MiG 31s? I read that there were 600 produced in series, but Russia only had about 100 left in service, of all models. Well, anyway, I’m glad that the IqAF has something… Read more »

some very old news

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/inatl/longterm/fogofwar/archive/post012891.htm

“The number of Iraqi jets flying to Iranian sanctuaries climbed to more than 80 yesterday, and U.S. officials said they now believe the pilots are not defectors but part of an organized effort to save Iraq’s air force from allied destruction.

News of the continuing aircraft exodus came as President Bush and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein each proclaimed the righteousness of his cause in the Persian Gulf War and vowed to prevail”

Hi, Penny, thanks for the links. Apparently, the ‘over 80’ referred to combat aircraft, but there were supposedly another 50 or so of other aircraft types flown to Iran. Your husband probably does remember news from that time; I know I do, and I also recall the sickening ‘spin’ put on so many of the stories.

Hi Penny, Arklight and Anonymous, the first 10 Su-24 fighter/bombers arrived in Southern Iraq, more tom come plus a new deal on MI-35 and 28 Helicopter fighters. In my humble opinion, Iraq made a wise choice, Su-24 has proved very effective in Syria, though it maybe not the last up dated version, it does the job of counter terrorism well enough. http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13930408000320 Here a brief description of the ariplanes that went from Iraq to Iran.

Sunday night. Penny, it appears that the IqAF is getting a mix of SU 24 and 25 aircraft. The RT (Ruptly) video showed 25s being offloaded from a Russian transport, partially disassembled, and they are supposed to be battle ready in 3-4 days, with Russian experts helping to set them up and fine tune ’em.

Dear Ziad! Are those old Su-25 or modernized ones? There is a big difference between those two.
The former are easy to shoot down with modern MANPADs, the later can fly outside the vertical range of those.

Thank you Ziad for the up date. I pray for Syria and Iraq to fight this war against NATO and its allies together, they can do a great job together and the retired SAAF pilots are one good example of that.
I am thrilled with the news that SAA/SAAF destroyed a rat’s weapon convoy coing out of the trashed Zio-Jordan, this event indicates a good intel and response time, all in one, it means SAA is getting full control back, very happy to see that.
