Turkish tank Leopard 2 shot down in Syria

72
Militants have posted on the network footage of a missile hit a Turkish tank Leopard 2А4 near Al-Bab (Syria), reports bmpd.




Turkish Defense Ministry officially recognized defeat tankreporting four wounded.

Presumably, the TOW-2 guided missile, which previously, quite possibly, was delivered to Syria through the territory of Turkey, got into the tank, the commentary notes.

      The Turks supply their enemies themselves. Some die, while others earn. How banal, boring and predictable everything is. The phrase in the film "Sarmat" sounds right: for a good bakshish, the Turks will go blind and deaf.

          Presumably, the TOW-2 guided missile hit the tank

          From the photo of the flight of the rocket, for some reason it seems to me that this is a Cornet. I could be wrong.

          But I will draw your attention to the fact that the Syrian command tried not to apply
          T-90 on "TOU" - hazardous surfacing: western Aleppo, Homs.
          T-90s were near Palmyra during the first advance of the Palmyra Zohar (and then the retreat). There were no losses, but also the firing of ATGMs, too. Then the T-90s were spotted inside eastern Aleppo during the final assault. Anti-tank
          the militants ran out of weapons there. Tanks moved unhindered. Caution is laudable, but I would not draw definitive conclusions.

    In general, modern cumulative ammunition (especially ours) needs to pierce what kind of armor on the drum. For lacking dynamic protection of armored vehicles, a hit with such ammunition is fatal. It makes no difference who made this technique.

    Instead of bothering with the purchase of weapons, logistics there, and other Ahuramazda - transfer money intended for the purchase of weapons, staff training, logistics services, etc. IMMEDIATELY at the expense of arms manufacturers.
    And let the manufacturers burn all this machinery ... as they say, right on the spot.
    Firstly, we save a lot of time. Secondly, reports on technical excellence will rise to a professionally set level. Thirdly, the shooting of destruction can be carried out in much more detail, more perspective, more informative. Fourth, we save on the wounded ... they will not have to battle, etc. to pay.
    Wherever you look, it’s much more profitable.
    I agree to 1 percent of the remuneration. With volume. From each company.

      They were Danes, but the main means of destruction was a landmine. Most likely, the Danish tankers themselves turned out to be good and hit all the available tanks until they were completely worn out, judging by the losses in l / s:
      the Danish army lost six Leopard 2A5DK tanks in the course of their participation in the fighting of the ISAF multinational force in Afghanistan.
      From September 2007 until the withdrawal of its contingent in May 2014, Denmark constantly kept five Leopard 2A5DK tanks at the Camp-Bastion base in the Afghan province of Helmand to support coalition forces. Of these, three tanks (platoon) were constantly in service, one tank was considered a reserve and one was under maintenance. Due to such a small number of Danish tanks in Afghanistan, the irretrievable loss by the Danes over the entire deployment of six vehicles looks like a staggeringly high rate.
      At the same time, only one Danish tanker was killed during the entire deployment, which took place on July 25, 2008, when the Leopard 2A5DK tank was destroyed by a powerful explosive bomb. As a result, the driver-mechanic Oberconstable Jasper Gilbert Pedersen was killed. An unnamed number of Danish tank crew members were injured during the fighting in Afghanistan.

            not cannon, but "future stuffing", what can you do, they can call themselves that in a fever of psychosis, if they suffer senseless losses, this is a crude martyr's jargon. In Russia, over the same period, even more young men and women died from Afghan heroin. It was then that he went to Russia in a wide stream, because. The Taliban lived off the smuggling of goods through their territory, and when the international coalition blocked this trade traffic, they had to become drug lords. It is a noble cause to fight international terrorism, but those Russians cannot be returned.

    In '91, when several simplified and old T-72s were shot down in Iraq (several thousand according to the American version), the liberoids shouted: "Soviet tanks, Mr.! Abrams class!" Now, when the towers are being demolished in Syria to the Leopard, which experts consider steeper than Abrams, the liberoids are shouting: "Yes, there was an old modification of Leoprad!" Double standards they are - everywhere and everywhere :)

    That is, in your opinion, this is not enough for a country with which there is no declared war, and indeed there are no active military operations there, that is, in fact, in peacetime? Here in Syria 10 Russians died in a year, and the liberoids scream that "bloody Putin is pouring Russian blood on Syria!". Well, yes, in 15 years, 150 people can die, maybe 300 ... This is cannon fodder. And 3400 NATO soldiers who died in Afghanistan in 15 years (this is recognized official data, there are probably more real ones), these are small such losses for the American bloodless regime. And this is only Afghanistan. And there is Iraq, Syria, Donbass, where NATO "consultants" are buried.

    Sabra - several dozen, at least in Syria. Leo-2 is not less than a dozen.
    A column was recorded in Syria, in which 39 tanks were counted.

    Well, they used Sabra wonderfully - there is a video where two tanks in a row Alahakbar burned in vain. The crews are clearly quite dead. There are more than a dozen leopards in Syria, because the ten towers have already been demolished. What can I say - Western tanks made a great debut in Syria :)
    Well, the person wrote correctly - before comparing the losses, compare the NUMBER of tanks taking part in the battles, and then compare the losses as a percentage. If Soviet / Russian tanks have been fighting in the east for dozens of years with virtually no interruption, and the western ones occasionally approach it, it is somehow incorrect to compare the losses of hundreds of Soviet-Russian vehicles and dozens of western ones.
