High-res New MANPADS Sightings in Syria.
Arms spotters today noticed the appearance of what looks like the Chinese FN-6 series of heat-seeking shoulder fired missile in Syria. The system, which appears complete, was in the hands of an anti-government fighter. Another sign that the MANPADSs threat to the Syrian Air Force escalates, and that the regional security worries grow. For links and hat-tips to those who keep an eye out for these things, go here for the Brown Moses fast-post.  For more background, try there or there.
