So an uparmored T-55 with Merkava-II style turret But actually very fascinating development, unless its a fake(picture is just some art so far i understand). Iraq goes back to old times developing own stuff.
That is literally a photoshopped Merkava turret.
I will believe independent Iraqi and Syrian military industries (beyond uparmoring/overhauling) exist when I see their products.
