Turks and Arabs have now come to that fork in the road

ISIS or YPG?

Ted

Looks like the tank did quite well as crew clearly exit. Well at least three of the four?

If that is the M60T Jewish made tank from Israel, then it is simply a crew of three.
So one third of the crew is confirmed dead.

No, M-60Ts, just like M60s, have no auto-loader, so 4 person crew.

Ted

Correct and one can clearly see three people exit after the hit, obviously they could have been wounded, I see the story has the KIA as an officer so I doubt he was driving would most likely exit the turet, or had been out side tank at time of the hit.

Joseph Scott

I only saw one, exiting from the turret at 0:26. What times did you see the other two?

Kocaman doesn’t look too Turkish to me…

Joseph Scott

Lieutenant-Captain is kind of an odd translation of his rank. Yüzbaşı means ‘leader of 100’ and is rated NATO OF-2, so Captain would be a pretty reasonable translation of his rank into English equivalents.
