How the Kurds knocked out the Turkish tank М60А3


According to the Turkish military, a heavy combat vehicle was forced to leave the battlefield after a rocket-propelled grenade struck the commander's turret.

It is reported that the tank was damaged, expressed in "through penetration and decommissioning of viewing devices." Whether the tank commander suffered at the same time is not reported.



Military experts believe that the car will be restored quickly enough and in the near future will again be able to take part in the ongoing operation “Olive Branch”.

In addition to various modifications of the M-60, the Turkish command also threw Leopards-2А4 into the battle. According to some data, they also transferred several M-48 to the militant units of the "Syrian Free Army" under their control.

    It was still necessary to get into this turret. And since the tank did not burn out, the crew was still lucky. Moreover, a tank without dynamic protection. Unlike the M-60T Sabra.

      As you can see, if the commander was in place, you will not envy him.

      Kurds these days massively spread fake news about "dozens of destroyed tanks." "hundreds of killed Turkish soldiers", "mass deaths of civilians" ..... The Turks quite successfully expose them on TV, showing these same photographs, only dated 2013-2016, and not necessarily taken in Turkey.

        apparently tangentially going, and then through. Those inside were splashed in the face with fragments.

        Old tank - old armor. But the Ottomans were lucky. And I wonder what worked for them. Probably the same age as this pepelats shell

        like an elephant grains


        would go under + - right angle - the consequences would be sad - like any, practically, a tank.

        And you still love to make fun of German tanks


        Well, do not be enthusiastic about competitors, having more advanced equipment available.

        No, well, if you are a non-German patriot, then your words are clear

          The M-60 reservation of the 2nd World War. His RPG in any projection takes.
          This is more a miss than a hit.

        In Turkish M60A3 there is no dynamic protection, from the word at all. But she is on the modification of the M-60T Sabra

          And where is the Sabra. Which is the Israeli deep modernization of the M60A3, made under the Turkish tender. The closest analogue is the Israeli Magash 7C - also a M60A3 mod. But the Turks did not have M60A3, but M60A1, which, in the amount of 170 units, with the help of the Israelis brought to the level of Sabra Mk3, but already at home. And we got a very high-quality product, as a result, outwardly even just unlike the original sample

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on January 26, the man after the liberation of the Syrian enclave of Afrin from the armed forces of the Syrian Kurds, the country's armed forces will go to Manbij, Turkish Anadolu agency reported.
    With such a statement, he made an appeal to the ruling Justice and Development Party. According to the Turkish leader, the operation in Afrin is a "clear signal" to those who do not want to understand Turkey’s resolve in the fight against terrorism.

    “We do not occupy Afrin,” the Turkish leader emphasized.
    “On the contrary, we are trying to make it suitable for the lives of the real owners, while at the same time eliminating the terrorists from there,” he said, adding that the operation is directed exclusively against “terrorists”.

    He also indicated that after Afrin, the Turkish armed forces would go to Manbij.

    Evo how. So this is not a war at all –– they (Turks) will simply eliminate the bad ones and populate the territory with real owners, for example, Turkomans. That is all. The Armenian Genocide? They didn’t hear.
