Video: Older US Missile Targets Newer Russian Tank in Syria: A new video appears to show a U.S.-supplied anti-...

A new video appears to show a U.S.-supplied anti-tank missile targeting a Russian tank on the battlefield in Syria. As reported by The Defence Blog and The Washington Post , the footage published Feb. 26 on YouTube depicts a Syrian rebel in Sheikh Aqil, a town near Aleppo, firing a BGM-71 TOW (for tube-launched, optically tracked, wire-guided) missile at a T-90 Russian tank, Russia’s main battle tank that entered service in the 1990s. U.S.-backed rebels in the country have reportedly employed both the older TOW, developed in the 1970s and manufactured by Raytheon Co., as well as the newer FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank missile, developed in the 1990s and made by Raytheon and Lockheed Martin Corp. The video seems to show the missile striking but not destroying the turret, possibly due to the tank’s electro-optical active protection system called “Shtora.” See the footage below.
