Expert commentary leads Messenger of Mordovia:
“If we carefully watch the video, we see that initially, the tank fired single shots from the NSWT in the direction of the threat.
The system "Curtain" for some reason did not work, although the illuminators of the optic-electronic countermeasures complex were open. It's hard to figure out where to hit. Perhaps in the frontal part of the hull or tower.
A subsequent fire and or explosion, apparently, was not observed, because otherwise, it would be a continuation of the fire show video for militants. It can be seen that the gunner-operator survived and left the tank.
That is, there is no evidence that this tank was hit or somehow seriously damaged. It is possible that even he moved away from the place of defeat under his own power in order to repair external injuries in the rear. ”
