DAMASCUS, (BM) – The Russian military has managed to “capture” Turkish armored vehicles and begin its vulnerability research, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, citing several Syria sources. According to the information provided by the sources, it is about the Turkish armored car Vuran.
A photo taken on the ring road near the capital Damascus confirms this news. Sources claim that there is no damage to the armored vehicle. This suggests that he was abandoned either by the Turkish army or by Turkish-backed fighters in Syria.
Captive equipment is part of the war. In recent years, the Russians have managed to get to the secrets of Israeli bombs and missiles, American Tomahawk cruise missiles, and others. In addition to a battlefield, Syria is a real laboratory for Russian, Turkish, American, Israeli, and other weapons research.
War in Syria
In February 2020, Turkey lost at least 62 troops killed in Syria. Nearly 100 soldiers were wounded, Syrian-backed forces destroyed dozens of Turkish armored vehicles, and more than ten drones, including drones, were shot down. Washington has repeatedly accused Moscow of involvement in the deaths of Turkish soldiers, Russia rejects these allegations.
In early March, the presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, agreed that a ceasefire came into force in the Idlib de-escalation zone. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad later said that if the US and Turkish military did not leave the country, Damascus would use power.
The reason for the Russian-Turkish negotiations was a sharp aggravation of the situation in Idlib, where in January, a large-scale offensive by the Syrian army against the positions of the armed opposition and terrorists began.
Government forces recaptured nearly half of the Idlib de-escalation zone and left behind several Turkish observation posts. After that, Ankara sharply increased its military contingent in the region and launched the operation “Spring Shield” to push the Syrian troops. Militants are loyal to Ankara and support Turkey.
