hmmm T34 (WWII Russian -very very rough ...but Robust) and the other looks like a T62 again Russian
post war, very widely used in the middle East, not exactly the zenith of tank construction though !

Rumour has it that they may get the Tortoise running for the Tankfest ! I can't wait !

This is one of the reasons Arabs are scared to death of the Israelis. What you are about to watch is an actual event. The Israeli Armed Forces filmed this in real time. What you'll see is a fully armored Syrian tank being hit by an Israeli laser-guided, steel-penetrating, phosphorous-filled "hand held" rocket. The rocket is small, very portable and is a tightly controlled weapon. Each one is accounted for when they are checked out and back in. There must be no fewer than 2 soldiers present to verify the use, one must be a senior officer with a minimum of 10 years military service. (the name and program is classified)

This tank was headed for one of Israel 's settlements. There were four more tanks one mile to the rear of this tank. They turned around before getting to this area after learning what had happened to the lead tank.

You can hear the ammunition going off after the initial strike. No Syrian tank crew member survived this event (pretty obvious) and it did not make the news.

It is an everyday event for Israel 's Armed Forces and they do not permit the "embedding" of news reporters with their armed forces like we the west do. This weapon and its tactical use is for their survival, not for "news" entertainment. Perhaps we should take a page from the Israeli Military Handbook.
you may have seen this allready

If you blow a tank up on Homefront, it does exactly that... I wondered what was going on!
