Non-combat loss: CAA tank fell from the bridge in Idlib with the crew


Syria receives reports of a non-combat incident with a tank Syrian government forces. Several photos have been published on the network where you can see the CAA tank lying under the bridge.


The captions to the photographs indicate that the tank, along with the crew, fell off a bridge in the countryside of Idlib province. The bridge is located on one of the sections of the M5 road, which this week came under the control of the Syrian government forces. Now for certain sections of the M5 there are heavy battles between the SAA and representatives of terrorist groups.

According to unconfirmed reports, the fall of the CAA tank from the bridge occurred due to a crew error. It can be seen that the tank rammed the fence and collapsed from a height of about 5 meters.



The accident with the CAA tank occurred in the area of ​​the village of Khan al-Sabil.



It is noteworthy that these photos have already managed to fly around the Turkish segment of social networks. Turkish users jerk about what happened, claiming that "Russian weapon doesn't help Assad’s forces. "A few comments:

Assad loses tanks out of the blue. Non-combat loss

Who controlled this machine that managed to send the tank under the bridge?

At the moment, there is no information about the fate of the tankers. As there is no confirmation that the tank fell due to inept actions of the crew, and not with "outside help".

      I agree, as far as the losses of the Syrian army and Russia are concerned, they’re so savored in the “world media” for a long time with detailed photos and videos ..
      And our journalists are being blocked with their photo reports .. Why so?

    Merkava fell down a road in Lebanon.
    Twice the Abrams fell (or failed) from the bridges when the Americans rushed to Baghdad in 2003.

        The Turkish defense minister at NATO said that they would either kill or arrest the Idlib radicals. Erdogan also warned the Idlib radicals. That is, there are hints that Moscow (the Turkish delegation will arrive in Moscow very soon) will agree on something. My forecasts are that the M -5 will remain with the Syrians, but joint patrols will control the honey agarics. Heavy weapons will leave the road as far as possible. (Left and right). The Syrians will not be given the m-4 road. So far, and you will have to no longer fight, but develop a plan to remove the radicals, leave the opposition, continue the work of the constitutional council.

            “Barmalei would have wet everything” They should be wet, but 4 million refugees in Turkey, and 3-4 million at the gates of Turkey have already got the Turks. This is a huge problem.

          No, Alexei, not all of their trump cards. If only Turkomans lived in Idlib, then Erdogan, under the guise of protecting relatives, would be easier to advance his interests. But in Idlib on green buses gathered the whole rabble, for which Erdogan is not an authority. Formally, the SAA and the Russian Aerospace Forces are struggling with barmales, and in fact, Assad is recapturing its territory to the border with Turkey. Erdogan is furious that he cannot solve the problem.

      The photo shows traces of burning, grass, a little tower. Why? What about the crew? In my opinion, it’s not competent to patch up the battle. The article is not informative. And let the Ottomans giggle. Ours will still show them - "Tagiyiel !!!" ... laughing (without weapons and in the Ottoman territory))

      God forbid, this is the first death of the entire abrams crew.
      In addition, in my opinion, you wrote that the army in the Israeli army managed to turn the hammer over on level ground, with its stability. And there is absolutely nothing extraordinary here, well, it happens, why relish it. Here the Estonian army has never dropped or turned a tank from a bridge, it is only because they do not have one.

    Fell from the bridge, and Turkish ATGM went into a stack on a nearby field. There are no reports of sanitary and irrevocable. Amov in 2006 in Iraq abrams left the bridge - four corpses near the tank supplemented the morning landscape.

            Firstly, there were more rejoicing when the Kurds planted MANPADS in the cobra, secondly, as a child, I read in a book that the Anglo-Saxons of the Kurds use the whole history as meat promising territories, and I always throw, 30 years have passed now I see the same thing in the monitor online the most, and you were guilty of the Russians, and they will be, but there was no territory and never will be. And countries such as Serbia Armenia Georgia, Romania, Bulgaria once asked for the help of Russians and voila country-language-currency. You can throw bile further, only from this the state will not be formed, think about it.

      hi I think that the crew got it tight. On concrete slabs, fresh tracks from the tracks are visible and, from the edge on the ground, a distinct track of slipping of the right track, as the driver apparently handed back at a speed, probably aiming to "slip" (from imaginary or real danger) into the hollow between the overpasses, but the little one “didn’t fit in” - on the tangent he overwhelmed the bridge bridge completely (that's why it lies, not at all crumpled, just fell down, did not fly far away) and, trying to recover, in a stress “mirrored” mixed up what PMP levers (planetary rotation mechanism n and “fifty-five”) - as a result, it slipped from the bridge by braking (in the “first position” of the PMP lever) with the right caterpillar (the track of its sliding sideways is clear, almost not “smeared”) ?!
      By the inertia of the backward movement, the T-55 hit the top of the wall of the water conduit and, crumbling, sliding its tracks along the concrete bevel with a coup over the starboard side, fell down by the tower ?!
      That’s why “lying under the bridge” is so strange with a “tenderly light” gun under the bridge “at 30-00”, and under the concrete wall of the water conduit there is a fresh pit from a caterpillar digging the ground ?! IMHO

      I can’t make out on my screen whether the driver’s hatch is open ?! And the bottom "hatch of heroes" from these photo angles is not a priori visible.
      But since around the “fallen” car there are no traces of a human commotion and characteristic lumps from urgent therapy, we will just, for good luck, hope that all Syrian crew members remained alive and got out on their own, albeit with bruises and fractures (inside the tank has a lot of things that can be injured even without turning over and falling from a height, although, judging by the photo, the gun was clearly fixed in a marching way, and the tower stood on the stopper from the turn), but they avoided deplorable fractures of the spine and severe damage to the skull ?!
      With a similar fall, up the tracks, into the deep water from the bridge, everything could end unambiguously fatal for the crew.
      Such incidents with tank overturning happen not only in war, but also in everyday tank life! request

        Greetings hi Extremely unpleasant event. But what happened is what happened. request Here it is very interesting to see how the BREM will work, because they will not leave it there. As I understand it, the most difficult during the evacuation will be to put it in a normal position. The water conduit greatly interferes with this. recourse The work of the tankers is still shown one way or another, but the work of related services is somehow bypassed.

          hi This is a "classic of the genre (almost like in a textbook smile ) "for the BREM. Only a red metal pipe interferes with the evacuation measures (probably, during the war time, it’s not working and the military will not stand on ceremony with it, anyway).
          The congress and approaches for ARVs are very suitable, it can be much worse!
          Before setting up this emergency tank "on its feet", I would unlock the PMP levers from the inside to the "initial position", open the turret and dismantle the gun mount stop in the marching position (if it was placed on it), so as not to further damage the guidance mechanisms (although in they are structurally provided for "donating links", of a friction type, for such cases of tank life yes ) and the barrel of the gun during the coup through the tower.
          Polyspast ARV, of course, would have to be involved.
          And with the help of other tanks of the unit (if necessary, and in the absence of an ARV), this T-55 could also be evacuated.

            I watched how many different video materials, but I saw the description of the evacuation in detail only once, and then in the form of graphics. There they showed how the forces of the unit pulled out the Thirty-Four that fell from the bridge. In this case, it is unlikely that military reporters will be allowed into the war zone, and the tankers themselves will not have time for filming. If we put the camera in the place where the picture was taken with the pipe, we would get both a report and a training film. But alas ... what

          hi Well, I’ve studied tank science with the T-55, its material part to a bolt, to automatism (I know for what solution of a technical problem I was promised, unofficially under the Union, the Order of the Red Star, any tanker or designer who it I’d solve it, but as far as I know, that problem wasn’t solved ... winked ), drove him, shot him. It's like first love (that is, this is my "first love-T-55" and it is!)! wink
          I began to forget my head, but if I got inside the “fifty-five”, I’m sure that the body and hands would remember everything and work “on the machine” - this is real tank soldier, simple, reliable, kind to the crew and deadly to enemies!

    Judging by the photo, this is the T-55. So “this Russian weapon”, at best, has been around for 60 years, or even more. But for anyone, the point is not in weapons, but in who uses it. Anything can happen.

    The result of a protracted war. Inexperienced crews, a heavy load on personnel and equipment. And who knows what happened there. Maybe there was a choice between cumulative on board and a fall? Then the guys correctly oriented request

    The tank is a huge car with very poor visibility. Although I am Israeli, but there is no joy or gloating, the guys of the tankers are sorry. It can happen to anyone, in any country, in any army.

    Somehow in Iraq during the second war, "Abrams", in battle, fell from a bridge into a river. The driver was killed. The entire crew died. On the bridge, the tanks are not riffraff. Do not fall down so the bridge under you will fail.
