    The MQ-1 a few posts up looks like it at least has wing pylons installed if it wasn't armed. Happy hunting, I'm sure Russia won't raise a stink if some of these Chechen fighters get plinked.

    Syrian Government Forces using a Russian UR-77 (I think) To clear Mines/Destroy Buildings.

    First time ive seen this being used anyone know what it is exactly??

    UR-77 "Meteorit" (ustanovka razminirovaniya) - A mine clearing vehicle with a turret-like superstructure bearing two launch ramps. The ramps are used to fire rockets towing hose-type mine-clearing line charges. A single charge can clear an area of 90 m by 6 m. The UR-77 is the successor to the BTR-50 based UR-67.

    UR-77 vehicles were used in mass in the Battle of Komsomolskoye during the Second Chechen War- the one-ton mine-clearing charges were used to blow away entire houses

    Sent the video to Brown Moses and Elijah and they never seen the UR-77 being used in Syria before so that means the Russia must have giving these to SAA within the last couple of months/weeks the syrian journalist who posted the video today said its a "New Missile Targeting terrorist in Jobar"
