The Syrian Army successfully uses unique strike units, consisting of tanks, anti-aircraft guns and engineering vehicles, in its fighting against international terrorism.
Some units of the Syrian Arab Army demonstrates an innovative approach in fighting well-equiped militant groups across Syria.
Fighters of the elite 4th Armored Division took measures on radical protection of their armored vehicles and worked over their actions in the framework of the unique combat unit. As the Vestnik Mordovii informational website reported, the combat unit includes T-72M1 main battle tanks with powerful shaped-charge protection armor, as well as the well protected ZSU-23-4 Shilka self-propelled anti-aircraft guns and 14.5 mm anti-aircraft machine guns, mounted on the chassis of the T-72 tanks. Recently, the IMR-2 combat engineering vehicles, also equipped with additional armor, joined the military unit.
Judging by video footages, this combat unit operates as a smooth-running mechanism: IMR-2 vehicles clear passages, T-72 tanks attack the enemy, and Shilka anti-aircraft guns support tanks and vehicles with fire, eliminating manpower.
In fact, we can see a massive implementation of combat modules in condiction of the Syrian war.
