I'd imagine all those surface to air missiles that went missing in Libya are on the ground in Syria ready to shoot down helicopters.

Didn't we do the same thing in Afghanistan? Gave one side surface to air missiles to take care of Russian Helicopters?

Russian ship with helicopters bound for Syria turns back

On further reading, I wonder if the Russian warships are carrying the parts and the cargo vessel was just a distraction. They denied this, and then maybe to save face, sent a cargo ship out after? Only to have it return? If they sent it with the warships, everyone will find out sooner than later.

Good point! Deception is a valuable military tactic!! I guess we'll see. I also read that the ship may port somewhere and load the heli's onto air transport for delivery to Syria...

For the 3rd time in this thread, it has been diverted to St. Petersburg.

St. Petersburg. How convenient. That sure is the shortest route to Tartus.

What route will they take to go into the Mediterranean ?
or they will deliver it to a port and bring the helicopters by truck

good idea if they changed their plan for that
very strategic

I read that they may be offloaded at kalingrad and could possibly be transported by cargo plane.
No idea how valid that claim is though.

The MarineTraffic.com website that tracks global maritime activity showed the Alaed's radar signal coming in Sunday just north of Denmark following the ship's southern passage along the Norwegian coast. The ship was shown to be sailing eastward to the Baltic Sea – in line with suggestions from the owner that it would dock in Saint Petersburg after making a brief port call in the Kaliningrad exclave in the coming days. Russian officials had earlier suggested that the shipment – originally also carrying air defence systems that have not been mentioned in more recent reports – may eventually be delivered to Syria by air. The three Mi-25 helicopters were repaired in Kaliningrad and some analysts believe that they may be dropped off there by the Alaed before its goes on to Saint Petersburg to pick up new cargo.

Something smells rotten.

What's the real deal...splitting control of the world? Starting www3 to envoke martial law? No man should ever have this much power period! I quess they are dying for tickets to hell.

Never say never.

In the wake of U.S. arm's sanctions the Iranian Air Force mated Hawk SAM's to their F-14's as a kind of poor mans AIM-54.

I have no idea how well they performed, it certainly wouldn't be an optimal solution but desperation is a powerful motivator.

Pictures or it didn't happen....

Yep, just saw that today.. Had that site bookmarked. It looks like it is heading to Syria this time.

Its destination shows to be DE-KASTRI(RUSSIA) but I think its gonna make a stop in the Med Sea first.

The M/V Alaed won't be stopping in Syria. It will simply be using the Suez Canal in order to get to the Russian Far East.

The Russians have decided for the time being to suspend arms shipments to Syria. That includes the contract for the Yak-130 aircraft. The Syrian Mi-25 attack helicopters were off loaded in the Baltic.

Syria Helicopter Ship Returns to St. Petersburg

en.rian.ru...


The ship, at the center of a diplomatic row between Russia and the West, has offloaded the aircraft in the Russian port of Baltiysk in the Kaliningrad region, a security source said on Friday. The Alaed docked at St. Petersburg later in the day. The helicopters were originally overhauled at the 150th aircraft repair plant in of Kaliningrad.“We haven’t received them yet… They are being returned to us,” the plant spokesman said.


Even the Russian Task Force currently in the Mediterranean is keeping away from docking in Tartus. The last thing that the Russians want at this stage is to be accused of docking vessels in Tartus that can be interpreted as delivering arms.


Russian Task Force Replenishes Supplies at Sea, Not in Syria Russian warships deployed in the Mediterranean Sea will not call at Syrian port Tartus to replenish supplies, writes RBC referring to Russian Defense Ministry's press service. At present, the Russian Navy's interfleet force has started replenishing supplies by means of auxiliary vessels. These functions are performed by Black Sea Fleet (BSF) oiler Ivan Bubnov and salvage tug MB-304. When the replenishment is over, the task force will continue deployment program. It is planned that the ships will enter the Black Sea in order to call at Novorossiysk Naval Base.
