Tanks in Syrian Revolt


Recommended Posts

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. Why? Seeing the photo that Jim mentioned might help answer some questions.

Last time the photo was posted here, it was agreed that it might have been only a photo of a T-72AV, where lighting made the ERA tiles on the turret cast no visible shadow (or it was hidden by the low contrast + low image quality).

Jim, I was just re-reading your old "BDD Armor" ARMOR Magazine article and you mentioned a T-72 equipped with BDD. Do you still have that photo?

 

I'll see if I can find it...as Methos mentioned, the last time it was posted...the general consensus was that it was a trick of lighting...not really BDD. While that conclusion is probably correct, I'd still love to see a higher quality version of the pic.

In Syria I guess.

That's a novel use of spent round casings if there ever was one! I have to wonder if it would be effective against even the older RPG-7 warheads as a sort of spaced armour? Hmm...maybe the concrete that some tanks have been seen with (cages made with rebar and concrete rubble filling the cages) weren't a better idea...

 

Interesting picture.
