Last night I posted a series of screen shots of Syrian weaponry captured by ISIS, excerpted from an ISIS propaganda video that was later taken down by YouTube.
Several of our commenters identified and discussed some of the weapons. Today a reader in Europe sent in his own identifications. I’ve added some of the photos to his brief remarks.
Planes #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8: MiG-21. Very old, unable to fly.
Syrian missiles #1
Syrian missiles: air-to-air, and surface-to-air missile.
Syrian tank #1
Syrian Tank #1 is BMP-3.
#2 is T-55 or T-64.
Syrian munitions #1
Wooden crates: tank ammunition, probably
Munitions, green: anti-tank mines (likely)
Gun #2: ZSU 23-2 very old, stone-age.
Syrian gun #2
All of the above except the MiGs are still usable and can shoot “nice holes”.
See last night’s post for all fifteen screen caps, plus readers’ comments on the weapons.
