In Syria, spotted armored vehicle with anti-ATGM protection


This device, nicknamed the Syrian "birdhouse", is designed to disrupt the guidance of anti-tank missiles. The early complex was installed mainly on Tanks, BMP, installation "Shilka".

“Those who follow what is happening on the fronts of the war against international terrorism in Syria should not be surprised by this modernization. The fact is that very often the militants do not regret the guided anti-tank missiles, including the TOW anti-tank guided missiles, to fight with armored rifles. Therefore, it is not surprising that such radical measures were taken to protect the crew, ”writes the author Roman Katkov.

The Russian military carefully analyze the experience of the war in Syria. At the teachings of the Russian army more and more began to appear similar tracked vehicles. Production of armored bulldozers established at ChTZ.

      It doesn’t allow the ATGM gunner to aim, the gunner simply does not see the missile marker.

    That's right what they set. People and equipment, even such, are important on the battlefield.

    Here you have the results of a long civil war, and the correct conclusions about the need to protect equipment from birds.

    Although it costs us a great price, we gain valuable experience and military running-in.

    Is logical. Bulldozers in Syria - in fact, combat engineering equipment. During assault operations, they are clearing the passageways of the vehicle, they are preparing defenses - the parapets have raked in a square, and here you are an improvised fort. Destroyed side bulldozers are recorded in their "asset" next to the tanks and other military equipment.
    Booking of bulldozers there began a long time ago. Why not to equip the system of protection against ATGM?
