New Data Reveals How Much Military Equipment Turkey Lost In Attempts To Capture al-Bab

A document, allegedly showing losses of Turkish armored vehicles in recent clashes in al-Bab, has been published online (source).

According to the paper the Turkish Armed Forces have lost ten Leopard 2A4 tanks, one M60T tank, two armored combat vehicles, one tactical wheeled armored vehicle and one improved armored personal carrier. The majority of Turkish military hardware losses were caused by anti-tank guided missiles.

Available photo and video evidence of clashes between Turkish forces and ISIS terrorists suggest that the data provided in the document is at least close to the real numbers.

According to estimates, the total damage, suffered by the Turkish Army, is between $18,000,000 and $19,000,000, as the price of each Leopard 2A4 tank is about $1,442,953 (without taking into account the upgrade, made by the Turkish Armed Forces), the price of the M60T is $4,000,000, and the Cobra tactical wheeled armored vehicle costs about $150,000.
