The question everobody was asking.
"Why did Turkey use M60’s to spearhead its Syria intervention?"
They still haven't said, but they lost three men dead when two of their tanks got hit by Daesh:
Istanbul (AFP) - Three Turkish soldiers were killed and four wounded on Tuesday in a rocket attack by Islamic State (IS) militants in northern Syria, in the first deadly attack on Ankara's armed forces to be blamed on the jihadists in Turkey's cross-border incursion.
Turkey launched an unprecedented operation inside Syria on August 24. Dubbed Euphrates Shield, it backs pro-Ankara opposition fighters in the goal of rooting out IS jihadists and Kurdish militia from the border area.
A senior Turkish official said two soldiers were killed on the spot and five injured in the attack by IS.
One of the wounded soldiers later died in hospital despite all attempts to save his life, lifting the death toll to three, an army statement quoted by NTV television said.
The fatalities are the first of the Turkish operation inside Syria to be blamed on IS and Ankara's biggest single loss of life in the offensive to date.
Nice photo of the M60T. The reactive armor is clearly visible.
