Syrian Army Utilizing Modern Systems to Protect Tanks against Guided Missiles
The Arabic-language website of Russia’s state news agency, RT, reported that Sarab has been designed to protect army tanks against TOW, Kornet and similar missiles.
It added that the system is capable of emitting infrared rays towards the fired guided missile, diverting it from its path.
RT further said that most T-72 M1 and T-55 tanks of the Syrian army have been equipped with the system.
Military experts reported in mid-August that the army started using the Russia-made MT-LB armored vehicles for the safe transfer of soldiers to the frontlines in the war-hit country.
The military experts said that MT-LB armored vehicles, manufactured in Russia, could boost the Syrian Army’s strength for a safer dispatch of soldiers to the battlefields.
In the meantime, the Arabic-language page of the Russian news agency, Sputnik, reported that the MT-LB vehicles were used for transfer of cannons and their crew.
Sputnik added that different weapons could be easily mounted on the MT-LB vehicles.
