The Russian T-72 tank’s efficiency has been once again proved on a battlefield.
The Russian T-72 tank has once again proved its efficiency on a battlefield. Another confirmation has come from Syria. A video, showing terrorists, trying to destroy the T-72 tank of the Government Forces, was published online.
The video, lasting only 40 seconds, clearly shows the Konkurs anti-tank guided missile system. Then the T-72 tank of one of the earliest modification appears in the frame. This is evidenced by the lack of a launching system of the 902 Tucha smoke grenades and the Kontakt explosive reactive armor. Then a rocket launch is carried out.
As a result, by the time when the missile approached, a white cloud has hidden the tank, and the operator made a mistake. The missile hit an exterior slope, located next to the tank. A massive explosion occurred.
According to military experts, the fact that the footage does not show the burning tank and ammunition, exploding inside it, allows to state that the T-72 remained unharmed or suffered minor damage.
