Models of the "Shell" in Syria: what the Turkish aviation actually hit

During the latest tensions in Syria, Turkish aviation, in particular unmanned, proved to be a fairly effective force. The Syrian army really suffered significant losses both in manpower and in armored vehicles. Turkish media tirelessly reported on the destruction of tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and other wheeled equipment enemy troops. The Turks were especially proud news on the elimination of Syrian air defense systems, in particular the Pantsir-S air defense missile system and the Buk air defense system.

The popular Turkish publication Haber7, for example, wrote that

our drones do not allow Syrian "Shells" to come to their senses. One of them was destroyed in the area of ​​the city of Serakiba.

The Turkish man in the comments on such news expressed the opinion that in this way the Turkish army strikes at the Russian defense industry, calling it an “Ottoman slap”.

Nevertheless, the fact of the destruction of the "Shell" in Syria initially raised many questions on the Web, and official Damascus, as well as the Russian Ministry of Defense, did not recognize the loss of the complex. For reference: the destruction of anti-aircraft systems of this type by Israel in 2018 and 2019, albeit reluctantly, was recognized.

Now, a few days after the decline in tension in Idlib, an interesting picture from Syria has begun to spread on the Internet. It depicts a self-propelled model of the Russian anti-aircraft missile and cannon system "Shell".

Perhaps just something like this was destroyed by the Turkish Air Force, which means that the “holiday” on the Turkish street is at least premature.

    Perhaps it was just something similar that the Turkish Air Force was destroyed, and hence the “holiday” on the Turkish street, at least prematurely.

    I think not, not something like that, but "Shell". If you look at the video, then the tracks from the wheels (just at the turn) you can see that there are eight of them, just like those of the "Pantsir". It is unclear where it happened and who did it.

      If you look closely, this is the installation of two different clips. On the 1st video there is really an 8-wheel car and at the very moment of the explosion (0:11) there is a gluing together with the 2nd video :) which was shot elsewhere, from a different angle, and the car with 4 is already burning on it wheels.

        They wrote an excuse that they allegedly destroyed it from another drone. There is a version that this is generally Roland in Libya.

      Now "urya-protrirots" will run up and throw you cons for such free thinking.
      It is difficult to get along with the idea when the picture from the "box" does not coincide with reality, so they come up with convenient versions for themselves.

      Look at the video carefully, at the beginning there are 2 tracks, after the explosion 1, the magic of editing and no fraud.

    The usual excuses went. "Maybe", "spread on the Internet", "something like that", etc.

    And does the Syrian fighter, hiding in the body, apparently rotate the radar antenna (in the video) manually? wassat

    If the Turks rejoice in the destruction of Russian technology in Syria, then with the death of Russian tourists in Turkey, they also will not pay.

    Video - definitely gluing two different videos.
    But today, Turkey stated that it had destroyed 8 shells and the video there is more believable.

    Video with "Carapace": First we see an object similar to "Carapace" that rotates the antenna. There is no change in scale, similar to the work of a reconnaissance UAV. Then suddenly there is a sharp decrease in scale, the camera "leaves" and exactly at the end of the departure, chick - an explosion! And - lo and behold! 8 tracks from Carapace "turned" counterclockwise to the quadrant and, in addition, there were four tracks. And the "Shell" itself disappeared. Probably Turkish drones are equipped with annihilation munitions.
