ISIS terrorists have captured a Russian-made T-90 battle tank from pro-government forces during the recent counter-attack near al-Mayadin city in the province of Deir Ezzor, according to a photo released by the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq.
Amaq said that ISIS members captured a T-72 battle tank. However, it’s clear that the photo shows the T-90.
During the Syria conflict, Russia has supplied some T-90 battle tanks to government forces. The main operations of these modern battle tanks are the 4th Armoured Division, the Tiger Forces and some well-trained units of Iiranian-backed pro-government militias.
