Syrian tanks with "electronic protection" from TOW are fighting in Aleppo


Judging by the photos, the Mirage is equipped with both T-72 and older T-55 tanks.

“Developed by Syrian military engineers COEP" Sarab "at the time of its appearance became a real sensation. Many experts simply did not believe that it was possible to create such a complex device in a country destroyed by a war of many years, ”writes the author Dmitry Lemeshko.



Tests have demonstrated that the Syrian Mirages are capable of neutralizing even modern American anti-tank TOW missiles of various modifications.

As a result, they began to be massively installed on the T-55, T-62, T-72, BMP-1, ZSU Shilka tanks, as well as gantraks. A total of three versions of this device were created.

True, in 2017, images of armored vehicles with Mirage began to appear less frequently on the Internet. Experts suggested that the T-90 and T-62М tanks took the brunt of the battles. In addition, it is possible that part of the COEP was written off due to the rapid wear of the electronic filling. According to some information, the elemental base available in the civilian market and, consequently, poorly adapted to the harsh conditions of war, was used in its creation.



Be that as it may, but today equipped with a "Sarab" car again thrown into battle against terrorists who do not want to leave the territory under their control.

      TOW is a rather outdated system. In Syria, there is more likely to be a subsistence of the Soviet system, which is also outdated, but not decommissioned, although they called it “Sarab,” it sounds in / in Arabic. wink
      It is necessary to protect the militia tanks until Trampush put TOW Sumerians.

        There are no astronauts yet. In independent development from scratch and the production of a high-tech model of military hardware and warfare, a warring country does not

    Most likely created on the old element base from the time of the Union. Well, of course, the real battle became a testing ground. Given that the assembly was clearly not in very comfortable conditions, manual soldering, lack of protection against vibration. As a rule, microcracks in the tracks. Well, the fact that the old elemental base does not mean that it is not reliable. But well done, see a new party brought to a working condition. Good luck to you ! Well done! soldier

    Not. Judging by the photo, the barrel of the tank was pulled out as in a cartoon: a crocodile elephant calf.
