The Iraqi command recognized the "Sun" a real weapon of victory

34
Russian heavy flamethrower systems TOC-1A "Solntsepek" recognized by the Iraqi command of this weapons victory. This technique, along with the Humvee armored vehicles, tanks T-72M1 and M1A1 Abrams was shown at a parade in Baghdad on the victory over terrorists, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


The Iraqi command recognized the "Sun" a real weapon of victory


Performed on the T-90A chassis, the “Sunshineki” were used on the most important sectors of the front during the war with terrorist formations. The blows of the "Suns" had a great demoralizing effect on the militants.



“The machines showed amazing reliability and durability. For all the time of the military conflict, despite the predictions of skeptics, not one TOC was lost. Although in general, armored vehicles were destroyed quite significantly - it would be enough for several divisions. Only the highly publicized tanks "Abrams" burned about fifty, "- writes Dmitry Lemeshko.



At the same time, he notes that the M1А1 was often destroyed by outdated Soviet-made anti-tank missiles developed by the 70s.

“Is this why Iraqis, having completely disillusioned with American cars, decided to buy Russian T-90C? It is not excluded that during the next parade in Baghdad, the “Sunshine” and the “Nineties” will pass in the same line, ”the material says.



According to the author, referring to military analysts, the experience of using this technology in a real combat situation will be taken into account when creating new modifications of heavy self-propelled flamethrower systems.

        And on the approach is the "daughter" of Solntsepek and the "granddaughter" of Pinocchio ... One thing is not yet clear on which platform it will be ... on the T-90 platform or on Armata ...

    The survival of TOC is primarily a matter of equipping the enemy, barmalei is one thing, but, for example, the light of democracy is quite another. But their effectiveness is a proven and undeniable fact.

        The range of application for tanks and TOS is still different.
        But aviation or artillery with good intelligence can work on targets and behind the front line.

            Tanks burned ATGMs, if I'm not mistaken. And these couple of kilometers of distance from the TOC, in comparison with tanks, did not allow the infantry to approach the distance of the shot of this ATGM itself.
            If the enemy had other means of destroying armored vehicles, the alignment could have changed significantly.

                Well?
                The Sun is capable of hitting enemy targets at ranges from 3,6 to 6 thousand meters (depending on the type of missile).

        No, what kind of questions? Wrote "Survival TOC -- this ... . But their efficiency ... "
        The effectiveness of heavy flamethrower systems, if not yet understood. There were disputes about the need for both CBT and terminators.

              More and more Amer’s weapons from the combat category are moving to the one with which it’s best to only serve. Bryatskali, and when it started - it turned out that the "Soviet junk" is better and cheaper

      This is Iraq. To draw conclusions about the quality of American technology based on the results of its use by the Iraqi army is the same as drawing the same conclusions about the quality of Soviet technology on the basis of Desert Storm or second Desert Storm. smile
      These ghouls left terrorists with technology in entire towns.

    Very curious, a lot of armored vehicles were lost.

    I saw this technique at the RAE-2015 exhibition in Tagil. There were also indicative firing. Impressions are unforgettable !!! Huge clubs of "Boiling" fire !!! If I have had so many impressions from the stands, I can imagine how many of them have the barmaley, if THIS is next to them !!!

    But first, the technicians from the USA were dismantled, and looked at how it works. So it will be with the T-90.
    Rejoicing that the local praise praised the technique.

      Like this is such a complex system that it could not be repeated without disassembly?) You yourself are not funny?

    The Americans "gathered" to the moon again, but decent tanks can’t. Clear business, not to tanks when all thoughts of "Space exploration", "of the eternal", and all production is taken out to China. In the end, Hollywood “gatherings” in the form of the movie “Rage-2” will remain in the descendants' memory, where there is one American tank with four international tanks (an American, he is also a commander, a Pole, a gunner, a Georgian, like a driver, a guy from Iraq, in the form of extras) tankers defeats all terrorists in the Middle East (possibly, they will attract a dog). As for the real state of affairs, about who and whose weapon bore the main hardships of the war, about the real weapon of victory, it is unlikely that besides specialists, anyone will know. We learn to value our achievements and try to be appreciated all over the world.

      It’s not worth observing .. alien equipment. There were models, at one time and more abrupt than ours (Aerocobra, B29), and ours were cooked up by Zaporozhets .. European and American engineers are not stupid, these are ours, thank God they didn’t drain our brains, well done.
