Orlan recon UAVs loiter for hours and when they see something they send GPS coordinates to bombers like Su-34 which use GPS and laser guided bombs to decimate. The survivors are picked off by helicopters like Mi-28 and Ka-52. All in all, dozens of vehicles blown up and hundreds dead.

Now that's how you do it! That was probably a supply convoy. Hit'em where it hurts.

We and our allies could have been doing that for the last "X" number of years ... But IMO we had other plans for ISIS

Beautiful!
Makes you wonder, why do they even try.

You'd think the idiots would run off a ways then bury themselves underneath the sand until the helicopters finished up lol

After the first vehicle in the convoy is hit, I'd be hopping out, running before the copters showed up, and burying myself underneath the sand. Occasionally poke my head out for air. It probably wouldnt work anyways lol

edit: Not sure if the sand would cover up your body heat because don't they use thermal imaging to see them at night anyways?

Exactly, when the uS shows that kind of footage, its usually hitting Syrian assets, but calling it "War on Terror".

We could also say:

Russia hunts down Ithe former United States in the desert in Syria!

So it becomes more clear why Russia is the new, old best enemy of the former USA nowadays again.

I wonder why they slowly do this? Can't they just carpet bomb the shift out of em?

Great to see some forward action.

Also highly depressing that watching people get blown up is 'great'.

What a strange world we live in.

So are you in agreement with Trump then, that Obama and Hillary are the "founders" of ISIS?

Eastern Homs province would be my guess.

There is no sand there. It's hard ground desert.

My thought was this would be an ideal target for a MOAB.

That would have been too easy.

In the video it looks like a KAB-1500L 1500 kg or 3300 lb laser guided bomb struck the front part of the convoy. These bombs are delivered by Su-34 which can get to the target very quickly.
