    come on Jura you have to have seen a Falcon 9 rocket first stage landed tail down standing on it's own with 4 legs and a blunted end pointed up.
    That SA6 looked like that.

    Looks like someone is dumping "soon-to-expire" ammunitions.

    Pro Syrians have posted another claimed downed missile.
    west of Homs.jpg
    Claim is this was found west of Homs. Of course there is no wide shots so it could be anywhere.

    actually it's been one of the most bizarre shows in military history:

    three buildings, each getting 19 TLAMs on average

    according to Department of Defense Press Briefing by Pentagon Chief Spokesperson Dana W. White and Joint Staff Director Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. in the Pentagon Briefing Room https://www.defense.gov/News/Transc...-spokesperson-dana-w-whit/source/GovDelivery/,

    and no apparent damage around like trees OK huh?!

    So, I got interested in what's still standing at Barzeh after 76 missiles. (Thread)

    "Surgical" and there are at least three areas of "concentrated fire" where they "layered" them, these area's are now below street level... and not to many trees were actually harmed in the making of this picture, LOL!

    back to alternative info - syria apr 2018 b.jpg
    MoD RF:

    french airmen did not fire;
    french seamen: one missile failed upon take-off;
    the two chemical objects (red circles) targeted with 30 missile, seven intercepted (which is more consistent with the picture damage);

    russian awacs and some fighters were in the air to control the situation;

    both CJCS and prime minister of france called moscow before the action;

    backfires flew to Iran to be ready for local support against sea targets.

    MoD Shoigu is expected to hold a press-conference tomorrow.

    Actually AFB, if you watch the reportage from the site being broadcast on news bulletins today, you will see quite clearly that ground level is in fact ground level and no evidence of any infill below ground level of any sort. Not even a Car Park!
