Click to see the full-size image

A Syrian Army T-72 battle tank survived an anti-tank guided missile strike on a contact line between government forces and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (Jabhat al-Nusra) in northern Lattakia. The crew members also survived the attack receiving slight injures.

Recently, tensions increased in the area of Kbanah in northern Lattakia. Pro-government sources claim that the Syrian Army is taking offensive actions in the area in order to put an end to ceasefire violations by militants. Pro-militant sources claim that the army attack them in the framework of the wider plan to push them out of the area.

    They were lucky to been hit right at the edge, where there is lots of steel…

    Seems to be a risky Türk-thing to put terrorist troops in charge of a ceasefire (makes one think if the Dönmeh Erdo not just plays his zionist pro Israel war game), which might lead to Türkish-Syrian War. If the Syrian casualties are high enough, then even the Russians can not contain what then might develop…

  • Jacob Wohl

    there’s no way it was an American ATGM TOW, most likely old soviet junk

    • King_GeorgXIII

      Americans finest yet to destroy a t90! The junk claim will bite you too! Ask saudi arabia about some cheap drones fucking them up! More US Junk!

      • Jacob Wohl

        whatever you say *sigh*

        • Mike

          Man you look like a cross between a rat and leach, the two kind of animals kikes like you are descended from.

          • Jacob Wohl

            Get lost

      • Jacob Wohl

        only reason the drones got through at Aramco is because the Saudi Patriots were looking THE OTHER WAY. Their radars were not covering the oil refinery

        • King_GeorgXIII

          as i told you JUNK! russian system have 360 view!

          • Human kind is doomed

            LOL

        • Concrete Mike

          So saudi who has been in a war with yemen for 4 years now, had been hit by yemeni projectiles many times before, your telling me they were too stupid to have 360 coverage of the aramco sites?

          Arent you americans advising the saudis? Seems like bad advice, you guys got no clue wtf your doing.

          Matter of fact, you just contradicted the MSM theory, that all the radars were pointed the other way? So they were pointed towards iran or yemen??

          Paint it how you want this is america’s baby, and it looks bad. You guys fucked up and dont know who to blame.

          While we laugh at you!
          Russian AD systems have shot down 100% of drones! USA systems 0%.

          Cant blame it all on operators come on now.

          • Human kind is doomed

            This troll just made me laugh real good. “Looking the other way”
            What a dipstick!

        • Yakub Wohl, the Patriot system is not for intercepting low-flying drones. That’s the job of the Skyguard system. You should do a little research before commenting here, thanks.

          • Human kind is doomed

            He doesn’t research, he trolls…

        • Selbstdenker

          What a BS! An AD system has as a basic configuration a alpha radar, which covers a 360 degree long to mid range view. Additionally all secctors are covered from which incoming attacks can be expected.In flat country this is again 360 degrees by overlapping sectors. near defense systems then cover their assigned sectors.
          Anything different from that is an incomplete deployment against any basic rules of engagement.

        • Human kind is doomed

          Looking the other way??? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
          Radars are looking 360 degrees, you know…
          What a pathetic troll…

        • PZIVJ

          So you are saying their deployment, which was done with US military help.
          Was ignorant and stupid ? :)

        • Mike

          Your shitty army got its ass kicked in 2006 and again in 2014, you Israeli’s are absolute dogshit when it comes to fighting. Oh and get rid of your picture its such an inducement to vomiting.

        • RichardD

          In other words it’s inferior and obsolete.

          “Key to the future system is a 360-degree threat-detection capability achieved through a new radar. The current radar has blind spots.”

        • Bob

          What rubbish. Do you seriously believe A.) that Patriots are a single directional weapons system, so why then do they have phased array scanning radars? B.) that KSA/US do not have Patriots positioned toward the Persian Gulf, given the long standing animosity between KSA and Iran? That is some very silly trolling.

    • xTheWarrior22

      Nice excuse little Zionist troll.

      • BMWA1

        The terrorists have both but I bet they save the tows for tanks.

        • Human kind is doomed

          They are using whatever they can lay their filthy hands on, TOW, FAGOT, KONKURS, doesn’t matter!

      • Derek Johnson

        xTheWarrior22 the Zionist troll finder general.
        Everyone you don’t like or has an opposing view is a “zionist”

        • xTheWarrior22

          He is a Zionist. Go read his description. Did you ever read any of his comments? For example he often posts “russian airstrikes benefit the butcher regime”. He supports Israel and therefore the Zionists.

        • Mike

          Which includes you, you zionist sack of shit.

    • RichardD

      “the tank’s crew was saved by the tank’s armored plating – known as Kontakt-5 reactive armor. The oddly shaped square panels are meant to defeat incoming projectiles by actually counter-detonating and disrupting the missile’s main charge from penetrating into the tank.”

      Jacob, I am going to take you seriously one time and ask a question. Do you really have any interest in reality or are you just going to spout what they tell you? I was in your situation, drinking the Kool-Aid for a very long time and long ago. I am very far from that now. If you are just a guy looking for the truth, you will find it. If you are not, you are going to get creamed. Good luck to you.

      • Harry Smith

        Sometimes, I have a feeling that Russian govt. pays guys like Wohl just to present USA deep state supporters as stupid and ignorant.

        • John

          Hey Harry. Well Deep Staters seem to do it for the money so, you may be in the ballpark.

          • Harry Smith

            Hats off to Wohl if he takes money from both! :)

    • Friend of Russia

      Junk is the synonym of American weapon

      • Toronto Tonto

        Russia and junk are indeed one of the same when its manufactured in the wasteland .

        • Mike

          Better then Merkva crap taken out by Hezbolla in 2006 there solomon kupek.

    • grumpy_carpenter

      Even the US military no longer expects TOW missiles to be effective against modern armour. It was an excellent weapon in it’s day but it’s day was the 1970’s. Good enough for bush wars and soviet era tanks but not effective against what the Russians are building today. This isn’t a slight against a very good weapon it’s just that it’s a 50 year old weapon and the world has moved on.

    • Mike

      Jesus fucking Christ, get rid of your picture you faget, I have to clean up the key board every time from the vomit you induce from me.

      • Toronto Tonto

        You should be right at home with vomit around you and the verbal diarrhea coming from your trap .

        • Mike

          Fuck off solomon kupek, did I offend your little boyfriend you little Israeli fagot.

          • Toronto Tonto

            See I told you .

          • Mike

            That’s all you can com back with, man you Israelis are stupider then kettle of shit, back to being buttfucked by your boyfriend Jacob, stupid kike.

    • Bob

      TOW-1 was developed in middle 1960’s and went into service in 1970. TOW-1 sure ‘aint new.

  • RichardD

    It could have been much worse. Though it looks like the driver may have suffered an eye injury. Hopefully it’s not serious.

    • BMWA1

      The man is in shock.

  • BMWA1

    Stunned. The vibration from explosive force is big even though no penetration.

  • Toronto Tonto

    Some old rukie ammo , a javelin will fix that pos tank .

    • Human kind is doomed

      Ohhh i would like to see Americans to give javelins to those goatfucking child mollesting headchoppig baboons, oh i would like to see that…

    • Otto Heinrich Wehmann

      Maybe Chinese HJ-73 or HJ8 (Hongjian-8) or Old Milan ATG?

    • Mike

      Again pathetic Israelis easily beaten by lighter armed Hezbollah in 2006 and Hamas in 2014, shouldn’t talk shit about others military equipment. Now go back to being buttfucked by Jacob Wohl there solomon kupek.

  • Mike

    Toronto tonto and Jacob Wohl are pounding it in Tel-Aviv.
