A video, showing the T-72 main battle tank, twice slipping away from hitting of the US TOW-2 antitank guided missiles, has been published online.
Syrian crew has twice saved the T-72 main battle tank from hitting of the US TOW-2 antitank guided missiles. A video of the incident was published online.
During a battle in the province of Hama, the Syrian tank came to a firing position from a coverture, launched an aiming salvo fire, and then rolled back again. This tactic has long been used during a fighting in a city and on an open terrain.
Terrorists, armed with the US TOW-2 heavy anti-tank missile system, tried to ‘catch’ the T-72, when it was firing. The first missile of the terrorists flew over the tank at the very moment, when it has started to move behind an embankment.
As result, the tank and the crew did not suffer, and the terrorists lost two expensive missiles – according to open sources, the price of one TOW-2 missile is about $50,000.
