Southfront with VT: The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has deployed TOS-1A thermobaric rocket launchers on the frontlines of Aleppo governorate.
Each is capable of 100 percent vaporization of an enemy installation up to 1/2 kilometer square per launcher salvo. This includes underground installations, armor, and all human life. There is no reason to bury the dead or even attempt to retrieve wrecked equipment, it has already been turned into slag.
These weapons will be deployed against Turkey’s 1200 armored vehicles and 4500 troops now supplementing their al Qaeda allies inside terrorists occupied Syria.
Russia has chosen Idlib to test its most devastating weapons against Turkey if that nation fails to save face and accept the Astana accords it agreed to.
On February 15, pro-government sources released a photo showing the heavy rocket launcher moving on the road in the vicinity of Aleppo’s city center.
The TOS-1A, which is based on the T-72 tank chassis, launches heavy 220 mm rockets with a range of up to 6 km. The rockets are armed with heavy fuel-air explosives (FAE) warheads.
The thermobaric rocket launcher is mainly used against military personnel, equipment, and buildings, including fortified constructions, such as trenches, tunnels, and caves.
The Syrian military is operating an unknown number of TOS-1A rocket launchers, which have been supplied by Russia after 2015.
The SAA is likely planning to use the thermobaric rocket launcher to take out the remaining militants’ fortifications in the northwestern and northern outskirts of Aleppo city. Army units are now advancing in the region.
