So an uparmored T-55 with Merkava-II style turret :shock: :shock: :shock: 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.

Especially as war ravaged and lacking funds that they are.

Well if that twit is not a fake we may see their birth this year. Standartised uparmoring (which is quite a thing), smaller upgrades like Sarab-1/2/3 jammers are a valid start for such industry. Not gonna say its someway near of big boys, but still.
