On Friday, ISIS-linked Amaq news agency reported that ISIS terrorists had seized a Cobra armored vehicle after Turkish soldiers fled their positions in the outskirts of al-Bab in northern Syria.

The Cobra is a Turkish-made infantry mobility vehicle that has been in service with the Turkish army since 1997. Turkey has not supplied these vehicles to its proxies in Syria.

    why flee on foot when you can ride with this toy ? did they run out of gas? or another gift to isis?

      in any case, it’s not going to augment ISIS that much, if at all.

        It is not just one. This photo is just a message saying “consignment received, thanks.” It is a kind of code. They want to hide their true strength.

      My thoughts exactly . Reminds one of the over 100 “accidental error” , air drops of the USAF to ISIS in Iraq . “ISIS seizes ANOTHER Cobra” , so its not the first , its a gift , or re-supply .

      Really? A gift that ISUS can turn into VBIED to kill your own forces! “But sir, I thought is was one of our recon squads returning”, and then a large explosion. Picture this scenario: You are awakened at night by surprise ISUS attack. You see your FSA support running past you towards the rear. Your first thought is not where did they park the car, but who fast can my feet take me to safety.

      They probably squished themselves in the nearest truck and drove off with that while vomiting because of fear.

      No time or balls to go to the command post and get keys for this specific vehicle in the middle of the night while explosions go off and guns are firing while everyone in your unit is hauling ass on the first available vehicle they see.

      You saw what ISIS does to prisoners.

    Turkish army projecting strength. Ha! Ha! Estrogen knows that his Syria project is at the mercy of Putin and ISIS. There are too many battle hardened groups in Syria, that can wear down the Turkish army if there is no air support.
