The shock troops of the Syrian army in the Deir ez-Zora region first applied tank spreader reports Messenger of Mordovia.


For the first time, the Syrian army deployed a tank bridge laying vehicle.


It is noted that it is not yet possible to establish the model of the armored vehicle due to the fact that it was photographed from a distance.

“Therefore, we can have both the old MT-55 of the October 1973 war of the year, based on the T-55, and the newest MTU-90М, which is a modification of the T-90 tank. If this is still MT-55, then the bridge mounted on it is able to withstand equipment weighing up to 50 tons. The production of these roadblocks was discontinued in the first half of the 80s, ”the article says.



As for the MTU-90M, this machine entered service in the 2013 year. It was shown at the Army-2017 international forum, where it attracted the attention of specialists and guests of the exhibition, including foreign ones. At present, these bridge-laying machines replace outdated engineering machines in the army.

        For the Arab, it would have sounded like "from Ivanovo, son of Peter, father of Nikolaevich." So fawn ... winked

    Well, not MT-55 - that's for sure. The photo shows that the bridge is approaching an obstacle in the horizontal plane. And one of the ramps is clearly visible. Most likely it is MTU-20, and maybe they managed to adjust the 90 series as well.
    MT-55 reveals the type of "scissors", first the structure rises vertically, and then fits onto an obstacle.

      In the photo, the bridge spreader does not wade, but on the scoured 2/3 of the river and then it is already going to establish a bridge with a length of about 20 meters. A tank spreader can’t cross a river.
