There were no infantry: The pairwork of the Syrian T-72 tanks hit the video


The military conflict that has raged over the years in the Syrian Arab Republic is accompanied by both loud victories and sometimes the failures of forces controlled by Damascus. One of the main shortcomings in the conduct of the battle by the Syrian military is called the lack of coordination of their actions. However, some crews use original tricks.


In the expert community, tactical misses of individual SAA units during the battle were repeatedly indicated. Often, the loss of armored vehicles is caused by the lack of proper protection in the face of the infantry. Tank or other types of combat vehicles remain uncovered from enemy fire. As a result, the enemy, feeling safe or minimally risking, is located close to the equipment and tries to “knock” it out of the ATGM or RPG.

It is possible that precisely because of this shortcoming in the conduct of the battle, the crews of two tanks decided to do without the cover of infantry. Supporting each other, MBT T-72B3 and T-72AV are shooting militants who are seated in settlements. Judging by the laid out frames, the pair work resembling a kind of “carousel” turns out to be very effective for them: a rather vast area appeared in ruins along with the “rebels”.

    Well ... well, they’ve been able to see such videos for a year, at least! Moreover, there have already been reports from some of the "military districts" that tankers are being trained in Russia in this "tactical technique" ... based on Syrian experience ... By the way, this is not the only "tactical technique" from Syria!

      Nikolaevich hi The uncle showed me a similar tactical technique when they celebrated something with Dad, and I played dice next to it. A year of commercials in the 70th, but in memory it is now engraved forever. The guy fought on the T-34 fought. Vienna and Budapest - there I gained my experience. He marked the street out of cubes, and my tanks "fir-tree" passed along it, telling why and why. He emphasized that without infantry - certain death from the “Fausters”.

        Hi Sergey Sorry, not for tactics. I already studied in the 70th, and in 1945, my father was 10 years old, and my older brother was 12, something somehow was wrong.

          Vladimir hi Yes, everything is in order. I was 70 years old in the 5th. Uncle, Batin's cousin. Father, 32 years old, did not fight. And giving Sasha in the 44th he got to the front, he is 8 years older than his father. I in 85th demobilized in April and celebrated May houses. Together with my uncle, we celebrated Victory together for 40 years; he is still the girls of our institute quadrille. He was funny - the soul of the company. Earth rest in peace and Eternal Memory.

        Hello, Sergey! yes Duc ... what am I? Yes, I have nothing! “It’s not my fault!” ... as they say in “Media”! recourse And experience is a “thing” very interesting when it is not only in the “arsenal”, but also when it is not forgotten! Alas, the opposite often happens! And sad examples in our recent history can be found ...: 1.In the Second World War, Soviet troops had to fight a lot in the mountains ... pay with blood for the gaps of military leaders who did not attach importance to mountain training at the time ... By the end of the war, they had acquired very valuable experience! And now ... the "Afghan" war "Troops that did not have mountain war experience, did not have alpine training, equipment were transferred to the" Afghanistan ", often from the word" completely "! What happened? Why?; 2. Somehow, a military officer the helicopter pilot “complained”: he fought in “Afghanistan” ... there appeared some absurdities in the combat training of helicopter pilots ... they began to use the experience gained .. they reported about it “up.” After the “Afghanistan” the helicopter turned out to be somewhere in the “outback” “Russia (and maybe even managed to get into the USSR ...). And there I was surprised to see that in the preparation of the helicopter As before, the old "absurd tricks" are still used, and the "Afghan" experience is not known or almost unknown ... 3. Our media described such a "tactical trick": 2-3 tanks, hiding behind a rampart, "circled" and each tank, “quickly protruding” from behind the rampart, fired and hid, giving the “right” to the shot to the next vehicle ... This reception was called “Syrian” in the media! What was it like reading to me when I immediately remembered and a story, and a film where our tank crew cracked down on several "Germans" using a similar technique ?! (the inscription on the tank- "Penza takes revenge!"). In the Second World War, this technique is “open” and known to Russian tankers, but they say to young tankers: this is the “Syrian experience”! hi

          Vladimir, I agree on all points. In the USSR, business trips "to exchange experience" were practiced. Now it is called a “master class” and often it costs money, and therefore is not common. Intellectual property - how! In the Army, this approach to combat training is not acceptable. IMHO.
          P.S. The film is called "The crew of a combat vehicle" hi

            The film itself is a very weak film, but it was the duel that was shot at the level. It is striking right in the eye that there they hit tanks with something real with tracers, I think that either with practical RPG shots, or with Thunder.

              But this is not a masterpiece in which a German tank crewman on a tank radio calls our battle? Our grief historians spoke of this as a documentary fact, although the ranges between us and the Germans could not coincide .......
              And Experience .. when Soviet air defense officers arrived from Vietnam, they began to tell how the Vietnamese instantly changed positions after launches, about camouflage, etc., so they instantly poked around them.

          In Afghanistan, for the first three years, it didn’t occur to anyone that heights should be controlled during the passage of the column. Is it so complicated that they didn’t think of this before? Or was GS too far from Afghanistan? Is it difficult to scatter troops on the high-rise from the counter?
          With me, thank God, they thought of it before me and when I had “locks” (the first and last car on the serpentine burns, but shoot the rest, as in a dash).

          Tactics is a great science. It is only based, unlike strategy, solely on combat experience. So those who give orders to know and remember that experience MUST.

        So Kenigsberg was released. T-34s knocked Nazis out of their homes in pairs, and then infantry. The tactics of the assault groups allowed us to quickly take the most powerful land fortress in Europe. Moreover, the losses of the attackers were much smaller than those of the defenders

    Interaction and mutual understanding in battle is the most important component of success. Like skillful command. At the 7th year of the war, Syrian tankers began to understand this ...

    Something did not see pair work in the village. From a distance they shot the building and that’s all. But if everything is as it is written in the article, then this is more the exception than the rule. Tanks alone in the village operate efficiently.
    The described "carousel" was developed during the Second World War. And then it was clearly understood that in settlements, tanks without infantry are the target.

    Well, I’m not a tanker ... probably there are as many mats as tankers say, I have no right to express about pair work in urban conditions .....
    But tanks in an urban environment without infantry support are fraught .....
    Not that the tank is completely blind ..... but it’s for sure ...
    in urban areas, when often the direct visibility is small, the tank can operate normally only on the basis of external target designations.
    Otherwise, the commander of the tank assigned to the infantry will have to crawl out, look around the corner of the high-rise building, fix targets, then turn around and engage in their defeat ... yeah, jumping out from the same angle, quickly shoot six shells, and then crawl back .... slowly and sadly.
    The episode described was accompanied by six or seven RPG7 grenades stuck in a car. But the tank remained alive, despite the fact that one of the grenades pierced the hatch. Left, if you look forward along the axis of the gun.
    The car did not burn out. 1 three hundredth.
    And yes, tanks are needed in the city. Highly.
    and if two tanks work without infantry .... then two blind-blind but strong ones work .... but they are also unlikely to be able to do anything if the tank commander does not look around the corner :)))
    Although, of course, maybe they have everything else in the desert ... maybe it is as flat as a table ... then maybe there is a chance to turn around if there are thermal imagers ......
    I’m not special in tanks, of course, but in the video I didn’t see the pairing of tanks .. Or I didn’t have enough brains ... :))))))

      I agree, as it is all staged. On the road, they spin the radio, after the shot, during a rollback, the woman looks at the camera, and not at the breech. Postanova. Take a ride on safe. And at the end of the video, the cover in the opposite direction went, they say the shooting is finished.

        "Although, of course, maybe theirs in the desert is different ... maybe it's as flat as a table ... then maybe there’s a chance to turn around if there are thermal imagers ......"

      I have already spoken out that the videos are “so-so”! But in the internet you can find a video where it’s good, "really" shown exactly the pair work of the tankers in our point ... and, as it were, without infantry. But it is necessary to take into account in this case that the tankers start with something, like the outskirts of our point; then they move, “cleaning” sequentially the “line” behind the “line” of houses. The same tactic is used if the town is not teeming with barmalei, and intelligence has found them in some buildings. Then the tanks immediately approach the enemy "strongholds", preferably accompanied by infantry ... But the tanks begin to "work" ... the infantry "on the rampage" does not climb! The infantry organizes something like a “cordon of a piglet”, then the tanks begin to demonstrate “pair work” ...

    Yes, a tank without infantry is bad in the city. But now the concept of a combat vehicle is being worked out, based on autonomous and automated capabilities, artificial intelligence, sensors. For example, Israeli Carmel.

      But I welcome such comments.
      This broadens the mind.
      And it's nice that there are literate people like you here.
      Sorry, I’m not going to read TM now. But in the memorial he scored both articles.
      And yes, the "transparent cockpit" in the BBM and aviation, which all the leading manufacturers of arms and military equipment are now trying to create, and even what continues to be called Ukraine, is very interesting.
      But, I believe, while this thing is brought to mind, a lot of time will pass.
      Although, the devil knows ....
      But even when it is brought to a digestible option - all the same - it’s one thing to look at “three tankers” through “transparent armor”, and another thing is the same thing + the views of another platoon of evil and highly motivated survivors of those who will have to occupy buildings in urban areas.
      No words - the former will have a very correct thing ... but the latter have different angles and more eyes. An order of magnitude. :))))

    Calculations from ATGMs choose such distances that on one side the tank does not have time to reload the cannon and hit while the rocket is flying, and not be afraid of small arms on the other side. Tanks also choose these distances.

    tanks without cover by infantry are tin, they shot and left, but who will take control? The feeling that there are separate air forces, infantry separately, tankers by themselves too.
