In Deir ez-Zor, the Syrian army deployed the T-72, modernized by the Italians




According to the agency, before the advent of the T-90 and T-72B3, these combat vehicles were considered the most advanced in Syria and were used by elite units, for example, as part of the 105 presidential tank brigade.

The Italian assistance provided in 90's was to equip tanks with modern sights that were part of the TURMS-T fire control system.

“The sight stabilized in two planes has a laser range finder and a second-generation thermal imager. This makes it possible to detect targets at a distance of 5 th. M. By day and 4 th. M at night. The presence of a digital ballistic computer provides a high accuracy of destruction, ”the article says.



A total of 120 tanks were improved. During the war years, some of the cars were lost. Therefore, the "Italian" T-72 is not too often involved in the battles. However, the battle for Deir-ez-Zor is now one of the most important battles of the Syrian war, and the best is directed at this direction, writes the author of the article Lev Romanov.

        Today, information on the Internet is already walking that the SAR is preparing a major attack on pro-American militants. The battle for oil is coming. To leave this piece to the Kurds is to have an eternal abscess near by. And, I think that the Americans, just as the pressure from the pro-Assad coalition will reach a certain amount, will easily abandon the Kurdish allies, as they did just in Iraq.

          Not sure. Nobody wants to quarrel with the Americans. Especially the Kremlin! Russia will most likely not give good.

          Actually, Amer’s strengthening of Assad is the least necessary. But here the Kurds are like a red rag for a bull tobish sultan. Kurds have gone too far in Iraq, and now in Syria.
          In this case, the Americans, in order not to anger the Sultan, will surrender the Kurds.

        Currently, T-72 tanks are thrown into battle
        these combat vehicles until the advent of the T-90 and T-72B3 were considered ... the most advanced and were armed with elite formations
        all the best is directed to this direction
        Agree, damn nice to read these lines on our weapons! The most massive tank, probably, like Kalash in small arms.

    Well, it would be strange if in such a heat of battle the tanks, so necessary in the troops during the assault, would remain somewhere in the backyards in the reserve.
    Raised the old people - well, well done. Apparently the crews also prepared.
