Syrian military lost in the battle of "Italian" T-72


A total of 122 were upgraded tank, which then entered service with the 105th tank brigade.

Unfortunately, in the course of the war of many years, a large number of such tanks were lost, and they are now a rarity in the Syrian troops. “These combat vehicles differ from the old versions in that they received modern gunmen’s sights, which are stabilized in two planes, equipped with a laser rangefinder and a second-generation thermal imager, and are associated with a digital ballistic computer,” the publication says.



With the help of this sight, the gunner can detect targets at a range of 5 thousand meters by day and 4 thousand meters at night.

An insignificant number of tanks equipped the commander with panoramic sights, which significantly improved the search characteristics of enemy targets.

In 2013, the Syrian craftsmen increased the protection of several T-72 Italian retrofits - anti-cumulative screens were mounted on them. However, under Damascus, this defense did not work, the tank was shot down by terrorists.

      And just one more confirmation that 1. tanks were burning, burning and will burn. regardless of the manufacturer. 2. Handicraft protection systems are inferior to the original factory ones.

      And most importantly .. the same Bulletin of Mordovia previously claimed that the equipment of the 106th brigade practically does not participate in battles since the Syrians are saving these cars .. Now this respected publication writes that most of these machines have been lost ... laughing laughing

      quote .. During the battles with terrorists in Damascus, government troops lost one of the T-72 tanks, which was modernized with the help of Italians in the late 90s. In total, 122 tanks went through such refinement. They entered service with the 105th elite presidential tank brigade.



      Unfortunately, during the many years of civil war, a significant number of such tanks were lost, and they are now a rarity in the Syrian forces.

      so still 105 or 106? wink link to the original .. http://vestnik-rm.ru/news-4-23389.htm

        Alexander hi (Sasha wassat ) In general, you also need a head for technology, but if the Syrians forget to turn on the “curtain”, because of which at least 2 t90 were burned, which is what we are talking about.

    I would like to understand more clearly in the future.
    Lost .. lost ...
    Rather, the correct term in this particular case is “destroyed”?
    Or is it recoverable? (detailed photo is not available to me).

    Italy upgrades T-72
    Kazakhstan and the Italian company Finmeccanica signed a preliminary agreement on the modernization of T-72 tanks. According to Jane's, the Finmeccanica Selex Galileo unit should install new optoelectronic systems on the T-72 tanks of the Kazakh army. The transaction amount and terms of the agreement are not disclosed. The transaction will be financed by the sovereign Kazakhstani fund Samruk-Kazyna.
    The memorandum of understanding between the Italian company and the fund implies the participation of Finmeccanica in other projects in Kazakhstan, including in the modernization of railways and helicopters.
    As of the end of 2007, Kazakhstan was armed with 650 T-72B tanks. T-72 "Ural" entered service in 1973, and its production was carried out until 1993. T-72B was produced in two versions of 1985 and 1989. The first was equipped with a complex of guided weapons 9K120 "Svir" and dynamic protection "Contact", the second - with a protection system "Contact-V". With a mass of T-72 about 45 tons, the tank is able to move at speeds up to 60 km / h.
