Slat-armored T-72 bites the dust.  The crew got out, apparently:

Tank ID Question:

 

Syrian Civil War follower @mahmouedgamal44 posted this picture of a tank he identified as a T-90A belonging to the SAA, seen in in a rural area of southern Aleppo Governorate:

However, soon after it was posted, another notable observer of miliitary gear in the Syrian Civil War, @pfc_joker, posted the following tweet giving his ID of the tank:

 

 

Old cast turret (T-90 mod.1992) + new tracks (T-90A) = extremely rare T-90K!

 

Is Mahmoued right, is Joker right, or are they both wrong?

Joker is right, but combination of old cast turret and new tracks does not always mean T-90K, some regular cast turret T-90s were updated with ESSA and new tracks

 

For T-90K (only 2 ever produced IIRC) lack of mineplow mounts on the lower glacis, an extra antenna next to the thermal sight and a small box added to the right side of the rear turret stowage box are identifiers.

 

Here it is firing at targets:

 

 

Why russia would give the SAA such a rare vehicle and why a command tank is actually in combat, i don't know.

On the other hand,why bother keeping an orphan vehicle that doesn't really serve any other great purpose?

I guess it's the same tank. A new ISIS video shows a few seconds of its cook off.

Video of a rebel TOW attack against an Assadist T-72 during the battle near Hama this weekend. The tank proceeds to cook off violently and finally explodes:

A jack-in-the-box kill accompanied by lots of Aloha Snackbar.  Call it a Snack-Jack video. :D

A militia belonging to the Free Syrian Army captured a T-72 and a T-62M from regime forces during the fighting in Northern Hama. The militants seem very content with their war booty. Both vehicles are still driving, I wonder why they were abandoned:

T-90(probably) survives TOW hit.
