Russia Sends 'Devastating Monster' to Syria

Russia-Sends-'Devastating-Monster'-to-Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian media reported that a single BMPT-72 named 'Terminator 2' has been sent to Syria for anti-terrorism battles.
 According to the Arabic desk of Sputnik news agency, the 'devastating monster' was shown to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad last week when he visited the Russian base at Humeimim.
The Terminator 2 is a tank that is designed to protect other tanks, specially in urban areas. It’s built from refurbished hulls from the venerable T-72 main battle tank. But instead of mounting a big 125-millimeter cannon, the BMPT-72 is armed a remarkably diverse suite of weapons that includes two thirty-millimeter cannon, four Ataka-T antitank missiles and a heavy machine gun. This gives the Terminator 2 the capability to engage infantry and light armored vehicles with its cannon, and tanks and buildings with its guided antitank missiles.

The first version of the Terminator was designed in the late 1990s. It was a five-man vehicle based on the chassis of the T-90 tank, according to Russian media.
It was armed with two hull-mounted thirty-millimeter automatic grenade launchers in addition to the other weapons, notes Jane’s 360. The Terminator 2, first unveiled in 2013, subtracted the grenade launchers and reduced the crew size to three.
The concept of the “tank support combat vehicle” arose after Russian experiences in Afghanistan and Chechnya.
Russia’s initial response was to escort its tanks with ZSU-23-4 Shilka self-propelled antiaircraft guns, which could rapidly pump out cannon fire to suppress hostile antitank teams. However, the ZSU-23-4 was lightly armored and not equipped to detect ground targets.
Hence the BMPT was designed as a “versatile and mobile weapon for protecting tanks,” explained Sputnik News. “According to the initial conception, vehicles of this type should be used alongside tanks on the battlefield and destroy any potentially dangerous target.”
Media sources reported last week observing a number of advanced Terminator tanks in the Russian-run Humeimim airbase during President al-Assad's visit to the base.
The Arabic-language Sputnik reported that a number of very strong Russia-made Terminator Tanks have been seen in images of Assad's visit to Humeimim military airport in Lattakia province, adding that Russia had never declared anything about deploying this kind of tank in Syria.
According to report, Terminator is similar to T-72 but is equipped with stronger weapons, adding that the tank's main mission is providing support for friendly tanks in the battlefields and destroying enemy tanks by missile fire.
According to a military source, Terminator tanks that had not been used in battle against terrorists will be present in the upcoming war on ISIL in Syrian Desert.
Photos and images of the recent visit by Syrian President to Humeimim airbase also showed that the Russian Air Force has also deployed more modern warplanes and missiles in Syria recently.
The photos showed that Russia has deployed its Su-27 SM3 in Humeimim airbase which is the last model of Su-27 had not been previously seen in Syria.
In the meantime, RVV-SD missiles, a version of the Jojo guided missiles, were seen in the footages of Humeimim air field.
The first visit of Assad to the Humeimim came after the recent statements of the White House spokesperson about an alleged impending gas attack by the Syrian government.
The Spokesperson accused Syria of preparing to stage a chemical attack in the country, threatening that Washington would make Damascus pay “a heavy price.”
Moscow launched its campaign against the Takfiri terrorist groups in Syria upon a request from Damascus in September 2015.
