Two Turkish Leopard-2 main battle tanks were destroyed in Syria

ISIS propagandists have released pictures of the strikes on Turkish Leopard-2 main battle tanks in Syria.

ISIS has targeted two Turkish Leopard 2A4s near Syria’s northern city of Al-Bab, making it the third anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) strike on Turkish Leopards in two days. Military experts believe that the tanks were hit with the Soviet-produced Fagot or Konkurs anti-tank guided missile system.

Earlier, Turkish troops in Syria, have lost the Leopard 2A4 tank, which was hit by an antitank guided weapons system near of Al-Bab. As a result of the missile hit, four armor crewmen were wounded.


German-made Leopard 2A4 tanks operated by the Turkish Armed Forces have been deployed to Syria for the first time since the start of Turkey’s Euphrates Shield incursion.

The quantity of deployed Leopard 2A4s could be estimated at around 50 tanks.
