Got pics of some new non-mentioned iraqi stuff aswell 8-)


Why isn't it on fire too? That's how most their tanks end up. :P

Its nothing compared to all that precious, mideastern oil burned in Kuwait :P

Seriously though, in about 40 Enigma images i have seen, there was not a one totally destroyed Enigma, as with turret blown off/burned out.

To begin with an iraqi T-55 with IR-Illuminator.
Image

T-55 equipped with tank gunnery simulator. Doesnt consider it wargame unit but still interesting.
Image

Type-69 II with all-around storage rack.
Image

Ex-iranian Chieftains(and ex-iraqi aswell).

Sherman Jumbo(?) together with BMD-1.

This is an M36B1. You have the characteristic Sherman hull. Interestingly enough this one uses the later A1 variant of the M3 90mm gun with a muzzle brake.

Back with another batch of iraqi hardware :)

T-72/Asad Babil DGA
Image
Somewhat unknown iraqi T-72 modification from french DGA - Direction générale de l'armement https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direction_g%C3%A9n%C3%A9rale_de_l'armement Its probably from the famous Baghdad 89 arms expo.
At least we can see new french laser rangefinder.

T-55 with single 57mm S-68 autocannon. Its not an ZSU-57-2 light, note the 5 wheels T-55 suspension.
Image

Full picture of iraqi upgraded BRDM-2 with 23mm AC.
Image

T-55 with 130mm cannon
Image
Cause Iraq is somewhat rich on awesome artillery systems of every type it could be introduced as fire support vehicle.

Last but the most interesting piece is this destroyed iraqi T-55 with rocket launcher on top.
Image
Image
On the second pic we can see 2 launch tubes remaining on the mount. I suppose its most likely short range MLRS. Way more powerful than soviet T-62 Afghanski with UB-32 :twisted:
However, it could be Konkurs launch platform from 9P148 (BRDM-2 Konkurs), Iraq had small amount of them before Gulf War. Thoughts welcomed.

I wrote earlier how Yugoslavia got a number of Iraqi MiG-23s and MiG-21s for overhauling and modernization, and some were even evaluated in Yugo colors.

This is one interesting plane that came along with them. Black 2326, with apparent two aerial victories over Iran.

It still resides within now-Serbia, as Iraq doesn't want to pay for the overhaul, nor the 26 years of their storage. An interesting, historical bird.

Some turboprop stuff :P
Pilatus PC-7 (1984) and PC-9 (1986) were used in IQAF for combat missions and training. Were armed with rocket pods and MG pods.

Unlike PC-7, PC-9 is not known to have been fitted for combat missions. PC-7 was used in Iraq-Iran War versus infantry and engaging iranian helicopters. Also it was delivered to Iraq from 1980 not from 1984 as previously stated.
