In Syria the government forces uses Hytera radios, the Russian armed forces often use Baofeng RD-5R. I guess they use their own repeaters. The insurgents in Idlib province also prefer Hytera, though the government claims that NATO made encrypted communications equipment is also used.
In Venezuela the government forces use Baofeng DM-1801/GD-77, whereas the U.S. sponsored invaders recently preferred Motorola XRP3500, according to Venezuelan government sources.
So DMR radios should also be very useful in SHTF situations, especially in closed user groups with encryption (I have not used encryption so far, as it is illegal for Hams).
