In Syria, burned T-72 with "corner protection"

During the fighting with terrorists in the Yarmuk Palestinian refugee camp in the Damascus area, the soldiers of the elite 105 brigade of the Republican Guard lost T-72М1 with enhanced protection, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


In Syria, burned T-72 with "corner protection"


Photos appeared on the Internet tank the Syrian army is not allowed to determine the location of the ammunition.

“It can only be seen that the upper part of the tower is engulfed in flames. This usually happens when an ammunition charge is hit and charges ignite. There is no reliable information about the fate of the crew, ”Lev Romanov comments on the photo.



This version of the "seventy-second", which appeared at the beginning of 2017, differs from the others by mounted solid metal plates arranged at an angle in the front upper part of the body, on the turret and sides.



Such a revision “significantly increased the protection of the armored vehicle - the armored corners more than once withstood the impact of not only rocket-propelled grenades, but also anti-tank guided missiles.

For all the time of hostilities, this is only the second case of the complete destruction of the T-72 of a similar modification.

        Colonel-Generals do not attack. They lead the course of military operations. First, the soldiers “rush into battle”, then “displaying mass heroism”, and then stunned - a graduate of a prestigious Moscow university, 30 000 will be either Dutch or Danes, but it’s better to invite both to manage the country, therefore that he was born, and it’s boring for him that they didn’t give birth to his kind again. But how could they have been born if their potential parents, the color of the nation, died the "death of the brave"? The people of Syria in this regard, alas, are no exception. And you won’t do anything, because someone behind the Ocean has dug in and is rude to the whole of humanity.

        I don’t think that the militants have Spikes and Javelins attacking from above. Most likely the shot was from a high-rise.

        Of course the tank has no place in the city, the best option is the 2 terminator with thermobaric warhead missiles. But where to get them? So in Syria there is simply no alternative.

          "Of course the tank has no place in the city, the best option is Terminator-2 with missiles with thermobaric warhead."
          The best option is an infantry cover. Machine gunners, snipers and just infantry. And the rest is from the evil one ....

        just in the city, infantry tanks are needed. If in open areas you can always get the support of artillery, then in the city with this very often problems arise. Therefore, tanks are needed. Another thing is that they need to be applied taking into account the peculiarities of urban battle.

        These are also very strange conclusions. The 2 terminator will not be able to make anything a firing point in the wall of the capital structure. 30 mm 2A42 is simply categorically not enough for this, and ATGM with TBBC for every loophole you will not stockpile.
        And the 125 mm OFS is enough to not only plug the loophole, but also to collapse the house with a few shots.

          A 125 mm shell is enough to collapse the house ...
          Of course enough, there is power, no mind. Then let's cover with artillery and aviation, it's cheaper and faster. The Americans in Raqqa gave you the answer - no tanks just collapsed at home and that’s it. And if the war is not in Syria but at home? The Ukrainians did not igil, washed off with Debaltseve, but I saw what the city looked like when we entered. No need to collapse the house, just 30mm HE shell out the window, a bulletproof vest will not help. What is a small splinter in the lower back, I know. You won’t fight much, it’s not a blockbuster for you ... But tanks are needed of course, but together with the BMPT TERMINATOR !!!

            From what distance do you get from 30mm to a window 40 cm wide, located on the 7th or 8th floor?

              And what is the distance usually in urban areas? At what distance should the tank be in order to raise the barrel to a height of 7-8 floors? RPG does not work from a kilometer, optimally - 200-300 m and even closer. And the cellars? The tank is not ZU-23-2, it doesn’t work at such angles, and the length of the guns in the city is a big obstacle, remember the leopard in Kosovo, and narrow streets are not uncommon in the east either, look for Syrian side screens in the pictures. Hang on the fences.

                At what distance should the tank be in order to raise the barrel to a height of 7-8 floors

                If you are talking about the minimum distance, then 100-120 meters is enough. This is at an angle of 14-15 degrees. But the question is solved from the first shot, after which there will be no firing point, nor the enemy occupying it. And out of 30mm, how much will you suppress it? The enemy will simply retreat into the interior of the building, where your shells will not fly (due to all the same angles), change the floor, and everything will start anew.
                I do not argue with you that BMPTs are needed, but it's still not worth positioning them as a kind of "Ultima ratio regum".

                  BMPTs may be needed, but only after the troops have a sufficient number of modern tanks with modern SLAs and modern protection.

      Well burned so burned - what's new in this - all the tanks are burning. Corner protection is welded thin iron on top of the armor.

        He is of course. It’s hard not to recognize. And his breathtaking komenty on the verge of a foul is simply impossible to forget. No matter how hard you try. I’d be silent, but no. Vitalik is omnipresent, in all topics, from the features of the use of tanks in the city, to the next speech of Poroshenko (who is always personally threatened on the pages of V.O.). It is unbearable to sometimes read this alloy of childish naivety, lack of education and age-related dementia. I apologize for the harshness. This character does not understand hints.

        My grandfather who went through the war said the worst thing was to get into the tank troops. There was even such an order, in case of damage to the tank on the battlefield, the crew should repair the damage (if it can be eliminated), and continue to fight. That is, in the middle of the battle, the tank is immobilized, shoots, the crew repairs it under bullets, and at the same time, the immobilized tank is a very tasty target for enemy cannons. And he often said that the tankers were suicide bombers. He himself burned in the tank twice.

          In a great war, all suicide bombers. What are pilots, what are tankers, what are just truck drivers. And the submariners? Etc. etc ..... As for fixing if possible, but where to go? If you drop equipment for any reason, you will walk quickly on foot. To meet tanks with a slingshot ... As it is, our country always has to fight against an enemy that is superior in strength. Apparently now the situation is developing .....

      Yes, they could have penetrated the ATGM in the forehead above the “corner”, and the IED could have been. Or maybe stupidly from the second one this was given from the border, but there could have been a mortar, but there could have been a lot of things. We will see a hole, we will discuss more specifically.

    why it burns and how horribly invisible, maybe there was no shot.
    threw molotov and hello! and what kind of protection is there the corner or net Molotov anyway.

    Corner protection does not save either from shells or from ATGMs. Its only justification is a decrease in armor penetration from RPG-7 grenade launchers. The meaning of the screens is to increase the focal length between the armor of the tank and the point of formation of the cumulative jet. This reduces the effectiveness of the cumulative ammunition, but not more than 10-20%. This solution was used by the Germans on their armored vehicles,
    As a result, the screens were abandoned. Protection from them is doubtful, and the maintenance of equipment is very complicated.

    In war, as in war. What protection do not hang, and if it’s horrible, only the Lord God will help the tanker. However, the tower is strangely burning, from above, as if they threw something at it, a bottle or something else that is fuel-creeping. Fights in the city, what's so surprising for discussions?

    Terminators are clearly late for the cover of tanks in Syria.
    Need a kit - drone + Terminator, real help to the infantry and tanks.
    They would not have allowed it.

    They got it already with their "corner protection" .... one write nonsense ... this is the usual divided booking .... to metal-polymer blocks on t-55 they are like to the moon ... if there was a brain - they would make normal protection, and so this nonsense in efficiency is many times worse than even primitive lattice screens ...
