Turkey sent upgraded M60T to Syria


As a military expert, Yuri Lyamin, noted, the photographs on the Internet show M60T, which were recently upgraded according to the Firat program.



The tank received a raised circular camera, laser irradiation sensors and, most importantly, a remote-controlled turret with an automatic grenade launcher or machine gun,
told the expert.



This modernization, apparently, was carried out based on the experience of the combat use of these tanks in Syria in the 2016 year. Then, according to various sources, about twenty American-made machines, modernized with the help of Israeli specialists, were destroyed and damaged.

        So, inside the same Turks will be. request And yes, they had already been modernized earlier, and it seems that then not only slippers have raped the Turks:
        in Syria in 2016. Then, according to various sources, about twenty American-made cars, modernized with the help of Israeli specialists, were destroyed and damaged.

    I’m wondering, do the Turks and ours exchange intelligence? Or did the Turks decide to pick up the Kurds themselves?

    Honestly, the M-60 must be sold to Africa, for modern combat, the car is outdated and no all-round sensors can save the car.
