An unusually large hole in the Turkish BMP corps is being discussed on the Web

An unusually large hole in the Turkish BMP corps is being discussed on the Web

The operation of the Turkish Armed Forces "Spring Shield" is completed, and the parties to the conflict vied with each other to report on their successes. So, Ankara announced the elimination of more than 3000 Syrian troops, the failure of 150 units of various armored vehicles, the destruction of three aircraft, as well as many mortars, self-propelled guns and pickups.


The Syrians, in turn, announced the destruction of 12 UAVs and 53 military personnel of the Ministry of Defense of Turkey. Losses supported by the Turks fighters in the province of Idlib are thousands.

Meanwhile, after the liberation of the city of Serakib, a lot of trophies fell into the hands of the Syrian army. Basically, these are weapons of American and European production, in particular, anti-tank systems, mortars and various ammunition. Along with this, the Syrians gained access to the military technology (both destroyed and partially damaged) left by the militants.

So, a heated discussion on the Web was caused by a photograph of a Turkish armored vehicle M113 (American-made). In the frontal part of the body there is a hole with a diameter of about one meter. Obviously, the shot from the portable anti-tank complex, which are armed with terrorists, could not leave such a “mark”.

Users suggest that the enemy’s armored vehicle most likely hit an artillery shell of 152 mm caliber, and given the enviable accuracy of the hit, it could be a Krasnopol corrected artillery ammunition. Information has repeatedly appeared in the media about the active use of this type of projectile by the Syrian army.

The maximum range of the Krasnopol shot is about 25 km.

    High-explosive fragmentation projectile hit. Perhaps 152 mm, but rather the destruction should be greater. And hardly anyone there "Krasnopol" will surprise. Turkey has its own excellent

    T-155 Firtina self-propelled howitzers are a licensed version in Turkey, according to most experts, of the world's best South Korean self-propelled artillery K9 Thunder. The firing range of a conventional projectile exceeds 30 kilometers, and that of an active-reactive one - 40.

      PzH 2000 seems to be called the best in the world ... Active-reactive at 56 km.

        They may have been called, but there are a lot of rave reviews about Thunder.

      Tooting! Plus both are wrong. The best self-propelled howitzer 2S35 is the SV Coalition with a firing range of up to 80 km. yes hi

          If you have not noticed, then I will explain, the conversation was not about the number of guns, but about their qualitative characteristics.

            Do you think there are no developments and new designs there? And 12 pieces in 7 years can hardly be called mass production.

    Who will be planted from a 150-mm gun on BMP? This is a random hit. And this does not happen.

      If they had planted from 150 mm, then from the armored car there would have remained a piece in the palm of the size!

    For the M113 armored personnel carrier, 100 mm ammunition for such a hole is enough. This is not a tank for you.

    Behind the frontal plate is the engine and fuel tanks.
    They hit anything, it doesn't even matter, even though the RPG-7 - the main thing is that a fire broke out and the aluminum armor simply melted. The frozen smudges of the "armor" are visible below.

      And in general there is only a front plate in the photo, there is nothing behind. In general, we are discussing it is not clear what, just throw in some nonsense. They also dragged Krasnopol from some side.

    Such a hole will be in the stern of every Turk, if they do not leave Syria.

    Such a hole can leave a shot from RPO Bumblebee.

    Why not 125 mm?
