T-72B3 continue to fight on the Syrian fronts

50
Main combat Tanks T-72B3 along with T-90A are currently the most modern tanks in the Syrian army. In the spring of 2017, these cars were spotted during a large-scale operation to re-liberate Palmyra from terrorists, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




“The T-72B3 was well received by the military. Compared with earlier modifications of the Ural vehicles, the Sosna-U sight was highly appreciated on these tanks. Thanks to the presence of the thermal channel, the gunner-operator was able to hit targets at night as effectively as during the day, ”the material says.

The tank commander was able to duplicate the actions of his subordinate. For this, he has a special monitor, which displays all the information received from the main sight.

Significantly improves the accuracy of firing from a gun automatic target tracking. Thanks to this device, the procedure for targeting tank guided missiles has been greatly simplified.

“By the way, it was T-72B3 that was first used in Syria with the TUR of Reflex (designated in NATO as AT-11 Sniper) with a range of damage to 5 km,” reminds the author.

Currently, the T-72B3 are in service with the most combat-ready units of the Syrian troops engaged to conduct operations in the most critical areas.

          If you have at least some experience, you are well aware that the destruction or survival of equipment depends mainly on which side of the sight the more skilled and experienced MAN. TTX swears and doing an “analysis” is a rather pointless exercise, only a battle in concrete conditions shows everything. hi

            You shouldn’t be so, because everyone has long known that Israeli aviation is not shot down, but simply falling or drowning in the sea - the ocean, the pilots also do not eject and leave the aircraft)))) But what about the tanks, what are they? unkillable a priori, what is there to prove. As I once told Pan Profesor, (From the desert to the British Seas, the Israeli army is the strongest)))))) it seems so. And to argue with them on this topic without help but))))

              Yes, please, according to the data for 2015, both Russia and Israel account for 5,4% of GDP per military budget. Israel Military budget: $ 15 billion (500) Russia Military budget: $ 000 billion (000) 2017 times more.

                Seriously, do you compare the budget of a superpower like Russia with Israel? Do you understand that Russia’s spending is much larger, and the ability to buy these four tanks in a vacuum is different?

      “The year 2018 has great potential for escalating [the military conflict], not necessarily because both sides want to initiate it, but simply because of the gradual deterioration. It made us raise the level of preparedness, ”said Nitzan Alon, Major General of the Israel Defense Forces in a rare interview with Army Radio. - Assad is close to putting out the last hotbeds of rebel resistance in Idlib and, ultimately, in the south-west of the country, along the Israeli and Jordanian borders, which, according to Alon, will give the allies of the Syrian regime the opportunity to turn their attention to Israel. “The global arena is undergoing global changes related to strategic events in the Syrian internal struggle. The Iranians and Hezbollah, who support [Assad], are being released to begin fulfilling their plan, ”he said.
      “We forbid them to do anything without our consent. We are acting and will continue to act, ”he continued, apparently referring to Israeli air strikes on Syria against Hezbollah and Iranian targets.

    The main thing is that the crew boldly goes into battle on this technique, goes to victory, believes in its victory!
    The war raised all the brave, skillful, the country supports its defenders, liberators!
    And the rest is so muddy background around.
    Work warriors, good luck and return home with a victory.

    By the way, the horses on a note.
    The Russian press, citing an unnamed source in the Russian Ministry of Defense, reported that by the end of this year two new motorized rifle divisions will be formed in our 58th combined arms army (headquarters in Vladikavkaz). They will be equipped with the most modern modifications of the T-72B3 tanks and BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles.
    That is if they dare to jerk to the Donbass with their "strongest in Europe" army.

    tanks burn, they don’t burn, the same, and war is an expensive pleasure because you have to fight skillfully, for example, it’s a good idea to put a flyer from An-2 to Su-35 - it’s money down the drain, and the T-72B3 is nevertheless closer in equipping with weapons and management in general to the level of preparedness of the tank crews of the ATS ...
