Some excerpt expenses for the Syrian Civil war

Russian military expenditure by days and monthly.

Figures are from combined data and mark a conservative estimate of ordinary expenditure, without counting on extraordinary expenses and days with extraordinary flight activity. The amount of spent munitions per day refers to October 2015 and has probably grown to substantial proportions, probably twice that amount. Still, the table relies on clear data and avoids speculation.

Syrian army salaries per year as influenced by inflation and currency devolution.

A medium army strength of 150,000 regular soldiers is taken for the SAA. Each soldier receives some 18 000 Syrian pounds monthly. After 2015, a raise of 10,000 SP was offered from the Government for front-line units, but since it does not affect the entire army, the benefit has not been considered in the following table.
