Housing complex on eastern side which is under rebel control is called New Brega and was built for employees of Sirte oil company. Together with Brigh Star University it is only confirmed urban complex that is beeing held by rebels although I read something about them beeing in Area 2 (first housing complex west of the line) but that was not confirmed by any medias so I take it for another fake rumour. Port, airport and oil field is beeing held by loyalist forces who reportedly dwindled in numbers but still there is enough of them to hold the line (before the attack reports were talking about 3 to 7 000 soldiers manning this position)
Artillery line was established in Bish, area in the circle.
All in all those lines are subject to change, commanders doesnt seem to provide much info lately to journalist and only Al Jazeera Arabic journalists were permitted (or wanted) to go on frontline.
If Nato were at all on the ball they'd drop a training round right on his crotch. Just to say Hi.
Its BMP-1, the barrel is to short to be the 30MM gun on the BMP-2 and the turret is too small.Second is BMP-2 with 30 mm auto cannon
Odd video claiming the capture of a truck full of hooch from regime forces. certainly a lot of booze for a Muslim country.

This video shows alot of different rebel armor types heading towards Brega. Anyone want to identify the number and types of armor shown in the vid?
P.S - ignore the blatant propoganda in the title.
Another video that looks to be from the push on Zlitan happening now. Technicals exchange fire with a Daffy vehicle. One takes a hit or near miss from something, sending the gunner flying, and the rebels call in armor support in response.
