    Mines in Gwaleesh/Qawaleesh, today.

    Looks like BBC, CNN and CBS all have crews in the western mountains now.
    Brega is FINALLY being attacked, fullout. And one small desert town, Qutran, way down in the south seems to have fallen to rebels.

    Anti-Aircraft Missiles Loose in Libya (w/ Pix from Gaa).








    The escape from secure storage of these portable, heat-seeking missiles of the same class of weapons as the American-made Stinger has continued. This is the report today on the NYT. (Past coverage is here, here and here.)

    Above, on a desert road outside Zintan, a man shows an SA-7b, or, as referred to by its Soviet designers, a Strela-2. The missile had been taken from the former Qaddafi ammunition depot at Gaa, which was captured by opposition fighters in late June. Jot down the missile tubes serial number: 031891. Hopefully, youll never hear of that missile again, as in, hopefully its remains wont turn up in the burning wreckage of a Boeing, Tupelov or Airbus.

    Below, Bryan Denton (follow him on Twitter, hes @bdentonphoto) helps inventory and document 43 emptied SA-7 crates near the entrance to the depot. Each had held a pair of SA-7s. [Note #1: the slightly larger crate in the foreground is not an SA-7 case, but well have more on it soon. The other cases are SA-7 cases, principally from cold war-era Bulgaria and Yugoslavia.

    as the author said

    Jot down the missile tube’s serial number: 031891. Hopefully, you’ll never hear of that missile again, as in, hopefully its remains won’t turn up in the burning wreckage of a Boeing, Tupelov or Airbus.

    The problem with really old manpads like sa-7's and early model stingers is that the battery life on their seaker cooling systems is fairly short, requiring replacement every 5-10 years. Unless the rebels found piles of new batteries to go along with those sa-7's, then they're basically just big unguided RPG's.

    Of these Libyian Sa-7s not all if any will make it into terrorist hands and if they do who knows who long it will take.Many of them wont even work and they are so old even less will or the terrorists wont have opportunies or know to use them.Sa-7s have been in the wild for decades and have caused precious little damage in terrorist hands.

    AQ and other islamist groups have had and tried to use Strellas for decades in Afghanistan, Iraq and africa..with some success against helicopters but otherwise no. A heavy machine gun or rpg is just as much of a threat if deployed near an airport runway.

    Interesting to see the fluorescent recognition panel on the tank.
