The tanks returned from “captivity” are fighting again as part of the Syrian army


If there is no information about terrorists who were captured by terrorists and injured “ninety”, then other vehicles, such as T-62 and T-55, are already being used against their former owners.

“Thus, during the fighting in southern Aleppo, government forces began to use the" sixty-two ", previously used by the militants, whose protection is reinforced with lattice screens and sandbags," writes the author Roman Katkov.



Of course, "these machines cannot compare with the modernized T-62M, however, their crews are more likely to survive in the battles than if they fought on conventional old tanks," he notes.

Apparently, the park of captured technology will be replenished, and new reserves will soon be involved in the fight against anti-government groups.

    It is believed that after a small repair and maintenance, the captured tanks will bring many more benefits to the Syrian army, which now receives dividends from the restored army repair service, which was revived with the help of Russia.

      What trophies? It’s their tanks that are simply stupidly abandoned when fleeing from positions or voluntarily surrendered to the barmaley.

        This is our morality, duty, oath, honor, and Allah took from them, Allah returned.

      All this is so. The question is where do they get tank crews? Or also captured?

    An interesting modernization is the increase in security with an increase in the mass of the tank, but the mass growth is not critical here. Cheap and cheerful.

      I don’t think that sandbags will protect from a cumulative jet, it will sew through this sand a couple of meters thick and will not notice, and the screen lattice is not the same, the strips should cut the cumulative shell with the sharp side, then somewhere around 50% that the cumulative RPG shell will be broken without undermining
