    Ooops! Glad I started that off with, if, then.
    I don't see posts, or quotes, of those I'm ignoring.

    I always saw the logic of the eastern flanking, just thought the western more likely. I missed that one. However, something is up with the Khan Touman/Al Qarassi area, though, that I'm just not gettin' There has been no real movement in this particular area. I'm thinkin' that Loyalist forces might be either better suited or more inclined to open field combat than to urban. That takes real commitment/guts! Hopefully, the T-90s that have been deployed to the area will help.

    Regarding the eastern flanking maneuver, I think your projections about the Rayyan bulge and A'zaz gap are spot on, although just which forces are holding A'zaz by the time the Loyalists reach it is, very much, in question. With the success they're having, I am wondering, now, though, if they'll stop at Al Bab, or if they'll proceed through to Manbij, along the same highway (M4 ). It's also a densely populated city (second-most in Aleppo) whose residents, I'm sure, would appreciate relief from ISIL. Being 50 kn up the road, they might haev to wait 'til the next phase, though.

    And deployed up to March, enough long.

    Seems sorties number from De Gaulle same a last deployment 10/15 by day. Super Etendard participate also but mainly Rafale.

    Russian do about 40/50 sorties for a day, have sometimes do up to 80 Su-24/25 use mainly free fall bombs/rockets it is Su-34 which in general use PGM the get all a true AI aircraft.

    Now german come with 6 Tornado ECR, 1 A-310MRTT based where ? not used for attacks Germany as Japan even more since WWII remains " special" countries, also send Augsburg a FFG Type 122 with De Gaulle CBG.
