T-72B will help to storm the Syrian city of Rakku

34
The main striking force of the government group advancing towards Raqqa is Tanks T-90A, the number of which in the Syrian army is relatively small. Therefore, the appearance in battle formations of the T-72B looks quite natural, Lev Romanov writes in his article for Messenger of Mordovia.


T-72B will help to storm the Syrian city of Rakku


“The T-72B is a machine, perhaps not as modern, but better than the outdated T-55, T-62 and T-72 of the first series,” the author notes.

"Military experts make assumptions: these combat vehicles arrived in Syria recently, or from those that were delivered last year," the publication says.



"In the autumn of last year, when it became known that T-72B was sent to this hot spot, it was suggested that these tanks" would not live long in war. Say, there are a lot of modern anti-tank weapons here, such as the TOW-2 complexes, the training of Syrian crews is insufficient, and the BSCs themselves have not been considered modern vehicles for a long time. But, as it turned out, TOW-2 especially does not help militants - local tankers demonstrate a fairly high professional level, and even armor does not fail, ”writes Romanov.

      We need a powerful tank strike ... (in the direction of the Turks) And the shootings will last forever ..! Accumulate tanks and arrange a demonstration tank strike with aviation support, "Citadel" "Bagration" ... transfer them all! And silence..!!!!!

        There are tens, if not hundreds of thousands of civilian hostages in Raqqa. Do you want to pass them all too? belay In the worst case, the terrorists will start cutting them worse than in Palmyra. Igilovites in a clean field under the tanks will not come out. I did not minus.

          against "terrorists cut them" in general, there are not enough funds

          Carry out an evacuation. With a filter, of course. But for this, the settlement itself must be reliably blocked. So that the mosquito does not fly.

    If this is the T-72B - the modernization of the T-72 of the later versions introduced for the Soviet army, then the main reservation is completely different than on the T-72 for export. And this machine, taking into account the DZ, is able to withstand the ingress of serious ammunition.

    Whatever envious and provocateurs say, the T72 is a great car, they know it. recent performances of these machines at the BD Theater prove this. and the loss of most of the tanks is the result of betrayal and cowardice of the SAA fighters, cars have nothing to do with it.

    With these military operations, there is no obvious advantage for Javelin, the TOU-2 has a very powerful warhead, this is a heavy ATGM. How you direct the missile or it itself is not so important, there are no serious counteraction systems. And if you buy TOU-2 complexes at the price of one Javelin, then they will shoot much more ... If you have tanks like T-90, of course it already matters from above the tank will be attacked or in the forehead. And for the T-54/55 / ​​export T-72 / Chinese clones, the power of the warhead TOU is enough for any projection.

      So, according to your logic and in the RA, it’s better to buy .... T-34 ?, 55 ?, 64? With the money that is required to purchase one Armata, how many T-55 can I buy? And they can shoot a lot more. Just what and how? Against the Papuans - yes, but against modern technology, except, excuse me, lyuley.

    Just during the given combat actions, the T-90, which were bought for the price of one Armata, will show much greater efficiency. If we consider the army of the Russian Federation, then people must be protected and the most combat-ready units must be transplanted to new systems. And that you are dealing with a third party to whom you allocate material resources and are not so critical to the loss of a third party, and three barrels are always more effective than one, especially since they are of the same caliber and distance for a shot are often "pistol-like"

    ... the Arabs always had a national line of life - they sold all secrets in one fell swoop (as soon as they find out that they weren’t ahead of the other) .. This was also taught by the war with Israel .. The corrupt people ..- rotten .. it’s more convenient for them to flee to Europe. Defenders trash ..

    It is often said about the storming of Raqqa. With God, men! A year ago, I remember everyone buried the Syrian army, and now it is preparing for the assault on Raqqa, the capital of Daesh, paraphrasing Ivan Vasilyevich "This is what the life-giving VKS of the Russian Federation does!"

    Russians live in Russia, and in other countries emigrants from Russia are two big differences.
