Sabra tanks went into consumption: losses of the Turkish army in Syria


Sabra Mk.II



You can hardly surprise the personnel of the armored vehicles of the jihadists, spread out by the ATS fighters, so often they appear in the information bulletins. However, now the ranks of machines destroyed by Damascus units began to replenish the heavier products of the Turkish army. Ankara on the very first day of the invasion of western Syria began to suffer losses in the tank fleet.

News SANA published footage of the intervention and its consequences. Military experts first drew attention to the fact that they went to the expense Tanks M60 of the Turkish army. There is a misconception that these machines are "antiques", not able to prove themselves on the battlefield. In fact, the technology of this family in certain modifications is quite a formidable force.

According to IISS, in the arsenal of the Turkish troops along with the Leopards and the M48A5 at the beginning of 2019 there were 100 M60A1, 650 M60A3 and 166 M60T Sabra. Sabra is the most advanced version of the base machine, created by Israeli developers based on the M60A3. This modification is presented in two versions - Sabra Mk.II (has a commander’s turret with 12,7 mm M85, dynamic protection, thermal imager) and Sabra Mk.III (instead of the turret - remotely controlled 7,62 mm machine gun installation; equipped with a warning system radar exposure).

On the Syrian theater were precisely the Sabra, which, according to some experts, is one of the “decorations” of the modern world tank fleet. SANA video compilation only was counted four M60 upgraded to Sabra level. They went to the expense during the battle.

    But the Syrians hit pointwise, what is it? Have you learned to use Krasnopol or something else?

                The video is interesting. Highly.
                And the explosions for artillery are very powerful.
                If they had used powerful missiles, all the media would have talked about this.
                Bombs are this. From planes bombed.
                Most likely Russia, not Syria bombed.
                Except the first frame. There, it seems, “Serpent Gorynych” worked.

          Most likely, we don’t have shock UAVs yet, but UAVs illuminate the target for guided missiles. On some frames, it was noticeable that something flashed in the frame after this explosion. Either bombs or guided missiles.

            Which Point, there the whole frame would be in breaks.
            This is either a guided projectile, or "Edge" or a bomb.
            The question is - can SVP-24s so accurately get into tanks?

      As for accuracy, this is not known, because those shells (bombs) that fell far from the target remained behind the scenes.

    Erdogan is wondering how he will explain to the relatives of the dead Turkish soldiers what they did there. How will the invasion of a sovereign state be justified?

        Well, according to this logic, Erdogan needs to occupy the whole Middle East and half of the world in addition! Turks live throughout the former Ottoman Empire, actively immigrate to other countries (Germany up to 4 million Turks). However ... he is trying to bite the already Weakened Countries internal conflicts. Frankly speaking, Shakalya is politics!

            It works for populism - it is supported by traditionalists in the country, a layer from the middle bar of the middle class and lower. Because this genius will shut down the economy by love - such local victories are needed. He won’t get into a strong one - the Russians will plow half of the country for him, the Israelis will knock out the air force and navy - but on the Syrians and Kurds he can very well show "a small victorious war."

            Oops ... and with a small victorious war - missed. The fact that the economy is locked up - No doubt, well, and there the other "sins" will come out - they will also remind about Syria and Libya, the Kurds at the same time (where without them), Greece ... strain with NATO, etc.

              Will come out to Erdogan sideways - his military adventures!

              1. Erdogan does not have absolute power. He, like all other heads of state, at all times, is forced to submit to one or another "request" of power-political groups. For example, he has tens of millions of citizens - descendants of Crimean Tatars and Caucasians - who in principle have a negative attitude towards Russia and Russians. Always and everywhere, until the end of time. He cannot ignore this.
              2. Of course, Erdogan would like to become the leader who will again begin to put together the Ottoman Port 2.0 and become the elected Sultan. And he began to act in this direction already years ago. But - did not work. For a bunch of reasons. Including and according to the fact that if no one, in fact, could interfere with the Ottomans, (and then they only took one and a half years of conquest to Constantinople), then modern Turkey will put sticks in wheels, as it is being heated, "all over the world."
              3. Cooperation and, even as close as possible friendship with the Russian Federation, are most beneficial for Turkey. And Erdogan understands this perfectly. Moreover, this has already been verified - including and supply of S-400. But, as I said above - there are those who do not care about it. They have their own interests, opinions, mental complexes ...

              As for the "help with tanks", then ... That single small groups of tanks will not help pro-Turkish barmales in any way. The reason is simple: TVD is oversaturated with many different ATGMs! There are 5 ATGMs for each such tank.
              Those. if you enter, enter immediately hundreds of tanks and others providing a "tank loop". (That is, full-fledged combat formations, not even of a battalion level, but of a brigade level.) Moreover, with decisive offensive missions carried out by concentrated groups. Only that would make sense.
              And then there at pr-k aviation with guided bombs and missiles, artillery with drone adjustment. In general, this immediately eliminated all the “inputs of single tanks” - most of them simply annihilated from the air ... Sobsno, it turned out instead of a “mighty blow” a liquid bunch and dirty pants from the inside.

              In principle, in the interests of any state to wage war on foreign territory, no matter how cynical it sounds, Turkey also does not want the consequences of the Syrian and Iraqi conflicts spread to its territory, and therefore seeks to create controlled enclaves in these states, as well as local pro-Turkish militias.
              Russia, seeking to gain a foothold in the Mediterranean, also has its interests in Syria and Iraq and supports the pro-Russian Assad Forces
              Our interests clash with the Turkish, in this case, and clashes arise.
              It is up to politicians to seek solutions, it is up to the military to obey orders and fight if it is necessary to risk health and life.

    Thrills the accuracy of strikes. On the objects of armored vehicles, so almost a dozen. Erdogan, having decided to check Russia for "weakly", realized that in this case there would be no ceremony to stand on ceremony with his open support for the militants (artillery, b / t and the presence of the Turks in the militant formations). And as confirmation, the blow of our videoconferencing. Therefore, he hastened to Moscow.

    Many photos from Idlib show multi-kilometer columns of Turkish technology. Beautifully and compactly displayed in a row. As if similar shots of a blow to them looked healthy ... Beauty - explosions, smoke, scattering pieces of armored personnel carriers, escaping flames and people running in fright. Not understanding what the hell they came here.
    And after some time the video frames - trailers on charred wheels, sooty burning tanks, skeletons and piles of iron in place of armored personnel carriers and cars. And along the sidelines, charred corpses of people who did not understand why they came here ...

    Well, they beat like that ... Exactly. The levers of tanks are not Turks? The technique is not simple ... It costs money, and many months of training. A tank with a poorly trained crew is not even a bulldozer ...

      Right The levers of tanks are not Turks?
      Today it was reported that the Turks officially announced the two dead tankers and printed their photos with expressions of sorrow for the dead heroes. Clearly not from a stray bullet.

    thus direct blows of ours and the Turks against each other have already begun, while the management’s agreement to write off such attacks on the Asadites and the Greens is still working. but it’s not possible to lie like that for a long time, the risk of an open direct collision will increase accordingly, and there will be no time for fun there.

    Turks get real combat experience.
    This is from the positive (for them).
    And from the interesting.
    How the Sultan will get out inside Turkey.
    Will he be able to make a victory out of the defeats, or will his sunset and the “Muslim brothers” begin, as the decisive political force?

    Sabra is an attempt to modernize the old tank, that's all ... This car is inferior even to the latest modifications of the T-55, which are capable of firing ATGMs through the barrel, have active armor, a new fire control system ... Even the T-34 can be dangerous, but nevertheless, you cannot compare old men with modern tanks ...

      He does not remain whole, you can believe. The box is not thrown away by the explosion of course, but it's not a nuclear explosion, in order to turn over 40 tons. The explosion of the FAB, even a relatively small 250 kg, gives heavy high-speed fragments and a shock wave that removes tracks, rollers, damages the gun and attachments. By the way, remember the effect of a close explosion of BM-21 missiles on the T-64 in the Donbass, the box of the tank was in a dismantled state.

    And why no one really wants to figure out what happened in Syria between the Russian Federation and Turkey?
    As far as I understand, there were agreements on a 20km buffer zone that the Turks roof, and the Russian Federation and Assad kind of got in there, which caused Erdogan’s indignation.
    As I understand it, the incident with the American ram of the armored car was from the same series: they agreed on the separation zones, after which one of the parties got into their own lands?
    Think about it yourself, have we been informed on TV at least once about “joint” patrolling with the Americans?
    Then the question is, what did they and we do on the same road and who was superfluous ?.

    All other information from the evil one and agitation of pure water without details of the root cause of the batch.
    There is a misconception that these machines are "antiques" that are not able to prove themselves on the battlefield

    Reading this, I have a clear feeling that the author tried to exaggerate the significance of the defeat of the Turkish tank, and not the most advanced in the technological sense, because fishlessness and cancer.

    And this jargon
    They went to the expense during the battle.

    here I agree, only we can be brainwashed by patriotic education so that a person independently goes to slaughter in some kind of Donbass meat grinder and will still be indignant if he is not allowed there (((.

    I am for my country, but there are issues that need to be well understood before you go to expense.

      climbed in response to shelling / attack. then the question to the Turks is why do the groups protected by them allow provocations to be made? and if the Turks cannot or do not want to hold them? everything is complicated there.
